Injuries to key fantasy players and continued bye weeks make this week a tough one for fantasy owners as they try to rebuild a workable lineup for the next few weeks. If you’ve somehow dodged the injury bug, you still need to be ready to manage around bye weeks including the Chiefs and Saints taking a break this week. Make sure you’re getting your roster depth ready to deal with the injuries and by weeks coming up by making the right week 6 waiver wire pickups.

Each Tuesday, you can find the top ten to target on the waiver wire right here on Fansided. To help keep the list realistic, it is limited to those players available in over half of ESPN leagues. That means alumni like Kelvin Benjamin, Travis Kelce, Larry Donnell, Eddit Royal, Eli Manning, Knile Davis, Ahmad Bradshaw, and Terrance West aren’t on this list even though they should be picked up if they’re still floating out there in your league. If you have questions for your roster situation specifically find us @FansidedFantasy on twitter.
All references to points are based on ESPN standard scoring unless otherwise noted, so there’s a common scoring system to base analysis on. The percentages included after the players team is their ownership percentage as of Monday. To help as many owners as possible, I’ll include at least one player from each primary position-QB, RB, WR, TE, and team defense. Stay tuned to our Fantasy football hub for more coverage throughout the week as we delve deeper into each position and get focused on your area of need.
Several of our top ten from last week were too owned to include on this week’s list, but we do once again have some returning suggestions as well–these players continue to be available even though they’re putting up consistent numbers. Depending on your team need and scoring system, your team’s needs will vary, but the players on the following slides are the top ten to look for as you try and work around injuries and bye weeks in week 6 and beyond
