The 2017 NFL season is is 13 weeks old and while many might think it’s premature to start picking up people from their fantasy football waiver wire, they are wrong. Every year a no name blows up in Week 1 and ends up being a top-20 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing.
Robbie Gould, K, San Francisco 49ers

Gould was a man on fire in a revenge game of his own last week, connecting on 5 total field goals against the Bears. Gould is quietly having a fantastic season and is sitting just on the outside of the top-10 fantasy kickers in the league this season. Now with Jimmy Garoppolo providing a big boost to the 49ers offense, it could be more of the same for Gould going forward. If you are looking to make a change right before the playoffs at the kicker position, Gould should warrant serious consideration as a trusty veteran on an ascending offense.
