With week five behind us and week six just a couple of days away, owners
are once again looking over their waiver wire to see which players to
add and which players no longer deserve a spot on their roster. Every
owner is looking for that next gem to carry their fantasy football team
to the promised land. That's where this article comes in.
Alshon Jeffery - Coming off a monster game versus the Saints in week
five, owners need to take Alshon Jeffery seriously. With season stats of
twenty eight receptions for four hundred twenty nine yards and a pair
of touchdowns, Alshon is a must add to any fantasy roster and gets the
Giants defense this week. In a high powered offense, Jeffery is a
fantasy stud going forward.
Keenan Allen - Coming off of a nine target game where he hauled in six
catches for one hundred fifteen yards and a score, Allen looks to be the
favorite target of Philip Rivers. The number one receiver in a pass
heavy offense means big things for Keenan Allen.
Terrance Williams - I believe Terrance Williams value relies entirely on
the status of Miles Austin. Once Austin returns from his hamstring
injury, Williams could see a dip in his targets. The good news for
Williams is that Austin almost always has an injury so Williams will see
plenty of playing time. Following his four catch one hundred fifty one
yard and a touchdown week five performance, Williams looks like a
receiver worth owning knowing Dez will see a lot of double coverage. It
also helps that Williams and the Cowboys face the Redskins this week. We
could see another Terrance Williams show in week six.
Austin Pettis - Pettis may not wow fantasy owners on a week to week
basis, but he could be a plug and play depending on matchups. Through
five weeks, Pettis has twenty two receptions for over two hundred yards
and four scores. Even though the Rams offense looks to be a mess and
lost at times, Pettis should be looked at by owners that need help at
the receiver position.
Harry Douglas - With Roddy White looking more hobbled every week and now
the news that Julio Jones could miss the remainder of the season with a
foot injury, Harry Douglas seems to have become an interesting waiver
wire pickup. The Falcons may not have much of a choice than to rely
heavily on Douglas. His numbers are pedestrian at best but if you're in a
jam at receiver, there may not be much else out there on the waiver
wire. Through five weeks, Douglas has sixteen receptions for two hundred
nineteen yards. He may be useful against weaker defenses be he won't do
much to ease the pain of owners losing Julio Jones.
Nick Foles - Vick has already been all but ruled out for week six and
we'd be safe to assume Nick Foles gets the start against Tampa Bay.
While Foles was impressive in relief of Vick, it was against the Giants.
He has a little tougher task this week facing the Buccaneers and if he
plays well, could keep the job moving forward. I wouldn't count on Foles
every week but he could help owners in need of a quarterback this week.
Passing for almost two hundred yards and two touchdowns does say a
little something about Foles but again, it was against the Giants
deplorable defense that didn't even have their usual secondary.
