Week 6 was an upside-down, topsy-turvy week in fantasy football with some normally reliable options struggling and some normally disappointing players pouring it on. To demonstrate how bizarre this week was-Peyton Manning even looked mortal! Hopefully, your fantasy team like Manning’s Broncos managed to stay unbeaten this weekend, but wherever your record has you it’s time to begin your playoff push.
A big part of that push is getting the right players off of waiver wires. Each Tuesday right here on Fansided.com, you can find our top 10 waiver wire pickups for the coming week. In each top 10, 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 you are 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 7.
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 Justin Blackmon (pictured above), 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 or 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.
