Week 6 Waiver Wire Steals
With the Seahawks, Bengals, Cowboys, and Bills all on a bye for Week 6 of the NFL season, many fantasy owners need to fill holes left by star players such as AJ Green and Ezekiel Elliott. Fortunately for fantasy owners in need of a waiver wire steal, we got them covered. Below are five players that should attract attention off the waiver wire.
Will Fuller(Owned in 67.4% of ESPN leagues)
It’s almost disrespectful that this man is not owned in 100% leagues. Fuller has two touchdowns in the last two games and with his top-tier speed, it appears he will consistently be putting up these numbers. If he’s available in your league, add him immediately, he has the talent to be a WR2 easily
Hunter Henry(Owned in 53.8% of ESPN leagues)
The tight end has been a tough position this year, especially with big injuries to big name players such as Greg Olsen and Tyler Eifert. With eight targets on Sunday, Hunter Henry proved to be a reliable target for Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense. Although eight targets is a hard task to ask from a player with Henry’s caliber, he should be a solid filler in the tight end position because Philip Rivers likes to spread the ball out to his tight ends.
Ed Dickson(Owned in 33.4% of ESPN leagues)
With Greg Olsen being out for a while, Dickson proved himself this Sunday with 5 catches for 175 yards. Now 175 yards will most likely not be achieved again however, Dickson appears to still be a solid target for Newton as the season goes on.
Nelson Agholor(Owned in 29.1% of ESPN leagues)
With elite level speed, it was only a matter of time before Agholor would begin to make a name for himself. Last week Agholor had 92 yards and 1 touchdown against the Cardinals defense. With improved play from both him and quarterback Carson Wentz, fantasy teams should look for him to fill holes in week six as he takes on the Panthers secondary.
Elijah McGuire(Owned in 22.6% of leagues)
This could be the breakout week for McGuire, as he figures to receive a big bulk of carries in place of a dinged up Bilal Powell. Even if Powell plays, McGuire should still get a large amount of work and can be a good option to replace Ezekiel Elliott.
