Previous Waiver Wire Results in 2017


Bruce Kinder and Larry Weinhauer’s teams are both sitting atop each Varsity League we have this season. Kinder’s RHODO, which has scored 306 so far this year, tallied a 146.55 in Week 2, thanks in part to Aaron Rodgers 24.95 and Hunt. Weinhauer’s Troy’s Boys entry scored a 163.75 this week, which contributed to his 302 season-long score. His lineup was led by Tom Brady’s 35.25, Davante Adams’ 239 and Melvin Gordon’s 20.8 Week 20.8 points. The first place winner in each of these total points leagues will cash a $20,000 prize.
