2015 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 6

Bill Streicher - USA Today Sports
Week 6 means more bye-week, injury spot-starters, and under-performing players. It's important to find the trends of solid players on the waiver wire and trade for less brand name players that have upside. Keep working hard and using the waiver wire.

Must Grab:

Allen Hurns (WR, JAX) - this kid finds a way to put up fantasy points weekly in an offense that must throw the football. He is an ideal PPR league fill-in WR.

Brandon LaFell (WR, NE) - he will be able to come back for Week 7 and he can help you with the back-half of your season. It is best to go ahead and pick him up now.

Charcandrick West (RB, KC) - it looks like Jamaal Charles injury is serious and West is the next RB up in KC. He is the top pick-up of the week and could be a player to help you through bye-weeks.

Willie Snead (WR, NO) - has now become a must own WR in PPR leagues as Colston is injured and he has become a primary target. He is on a solid pace and would hope for more TD's, but for now he can get you through PPR league bye-weeks.

Spot-Starter:

Gary Barnidge (TE, CLE) - he is the definition of spot-starting TE and should be considered for your bye-week TE spot-starter. He has TD upside and should be able to get half a dozen catches each week.

Blake Bortles (QB, JAX) - the Jags are having to throw a ton and Blake is going to make mistakes throwing INTs, but he could fill the gap for a spot-starter if you are in need of a QB for bye-weeks or injury.

Tavon Austin (WR, StL) - he has TD upside for TD only league owners and sees enough catches to be a bye-week filler or injury spot-starter.

Thomas Rawls (RB, SEA) - Marshawn Lynch should be back, but he is starting to show a bit of his wear with injury. He is the hand-cuff for Lynch that is someone to make sure you stash if he hasn't been picked up already.

Andre Johnson (WR, IND) - it's hard to believe, but he finally had a solid game. Is this the game that wakes him up and helps him to become fantasy relevant? He is still a huge gamble, but may be worth stashing at this point if you are looking for a WR.

Kamar Aiken (WR, BAL) - have to admit that this kid looked really good this weekend. He still has many question marks as to if he can produce weekly, but the talent is there for sure.

Antonio Andrews (RB, TEN) - he split more carries than I was hoping for but he does get put in on many of the passing plays, so if you are in PPR league he is someone to monitor. He is also used in the red-zone and is a bowling ball of a player.

Ty Montgomery (WR, GB) - the issue with Ty is you have to watch who is or is not playing for Green Bay on any given week. To me he is a dynasty pick-up and if you are in a deep league you can consider him.

Watch:

Jacob Tamme (TE, ATL) - keep an eye on Tamme, but would be more of a bye-week filler for PPR leagues. Not someone to rush out and get but a TE to keep an eye on.

Jermaine Kearse (WR, SEA) - he continues to find targets from Russel Wilson, so if you are in a deep league looking for a PPR player then Kearse could fill the gap.

Dwayne Harris (WR, NYG) - deep league owners only apply here; if Randle misses time due to injury then Harris will get more action. He is still pretty raw, but if you are in a PPR deep league you may take a flier on him.

Jamison Crowder (WR, WAS) - with so many injuries in Washington someone has had to step up and play. Crowder could be used next week if you need someone, but for the rest of the season his upside is capped.

Marquess Wilson (WR, CHI) - he is in the same situation as Crowder and if Eddie Royal and Alshon Jeffery miss time next week then Wilson could be a nice flier.
