The NFL and fantasy football weeks have reached the sixth week of the 2013 season. In the NFL, two of five unbeaten teams went down leaving the Broncos, Saints, and Chiefs as the only teams without a loss. Hopefully, your fantasy team is faring as well due to your expert “coaching” like Andy Reid and Sean Payton.
Whether your teams off to that hot of a start or your team looks more like last year’s Andy Reid-led Eagles, there is still time to get your team into the playoffs if you get things turned around quickly. To do that, one key ingredient you’ll need is waiver wire finds.
Each Tuesday right here on Fansided.com, you can find our top 10 waiver wire pickups for the coming week. Each week, I include at least one quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight end as well as a team defense with a favorable matchup in case your streaming defenses or looking for a one-week fill in. Throughout the rest of the week, keep coming back to Fansided’s fantasy page where you’ll find continuing coverage and analysis to help you get the win you need in week 6
All players on the list or in the “best of the rest” are available in at least 50% of ESPN leagues as of Monday and their ownership percentages are included in parentheses. That means that some of the players on the list in the past (last week’s post available here) like Danny Woodhead, Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Cameron, Julius Thomas, Kenbrell Thompkins, Bilal Powell, and Julian Edelman are no longer eligible to appear even though they still make good pickups if they’re available.
If you’re not sure about your waiver claim and want some personalized advice, feel free to ask me on twitter @ZT_Sports or include the question in a comment at the bottom of the page. I’ll do my best to answer all your questions as quickly as possible.
All scoring references are from NFL.com’s default scoring which simply is used to give a common baseline to work from. Adjust appropriately your team and league scoring system.
Here’s my top ten additions headed into week 6.
