Fantasy Football Week 5 Waiver Wire Adds

Fantasy football has been a bit unusual this year, players like Tarik Cohen, Alvin Kamara, Kareem Hunt, Stefon Diggs, Keenan Allen, Austin Thielen have been top fantasy producers. What has happened to players like Odell Beckham Jr, Demarco Murray the list goes on and on.

The tight end position for fantasy has been brutal this season if you do not have Zach Ertz, Rob Gronkowski or Travis Kelce, it’s basically a toss-up in there in terms of production.

Running backs have been losing some teams some fantasy weeks now for the past four weeks. With a few injuries as well it does not help if you have Dalvin Cook, David Johnson, I feel for you, because those are two top running backs that get the job done for fantasy. And not many running backs this year have consistently streamed numbers night in and night out besides Todd Gurley III, Kareem Hunt, and Leon Bell.

Wide Receivers do the same thing every year I feel like they always have injury problems, struggle to get on the same page as their QB or get their #1 position taken over by some no-name WR, but hopefully you have Antonio Brown, DeAndre Hopkins, A.J. Green and Michael Thomas or the list of WR’s may haunt you come waiver wire time. There are obviously a few other good WR’s but some are usually questionable because of injuries or just are inconsistent.

Well for those struggling with the same issue as me, trying to consistently find a player that is not hurt or won’t make you second guess yourself here are my top ten most streamable waiver wire adds for the week.
