Fantasy Football: Week 6 Waiver Wire

Who To Pick Up? Waiver Wire

With another week of byes slated to take place in Week 6, the Waiver Wire becomes even more important. Those who grabbed and started Doug Baldwin or Victor Cruz last week were undoubtedly very happy. So who is this week’s Victor Cruz?


Below is a list of possible candidates in the Week 6 version of Dave B’s Waiver Wire.


Tim Tebow – Denver Broncos – Tebow is on a bye in Week 6 but when his team returns in Week 7 he will be the starter. Tebow is a dual threat QB – he will rush for his share of yards as well as pass. The Broncos rally around this guy – he may be worth an add just to stash away for later in the season.

Curtis Painter – Indianapolis Colts – Painter has passed for 558 yards, four touchdowns and ZERO interceptions since being named starter in Indianapolis. There is no doubt that he has weapons and he knows how to use them.

Matt Cassel – Kansas City Chiefs – Cassel passed for 4 touchdowns in Week 5 and seems to finally be rounding into form for the Chiefs. KC is going to have to throw the ball more this season – the running games isn’t close to what it was with Jamaal Charles. With Dwayne Bowe and Steve Breaston in the fold, Cassel could be an OK spot start.

Others to Monitor: Matt Moore – Miami, Charlie Whitehurst – Seattle, Christian Ponder – Minnesota


Ryan Torain – Washington Redskins – I had him on the list last week but he is worth mentioning again for the 1st place Redskins. He is back from a broken hand and rushed for 135 yards and a score in that first game back. Tim Hightower is banged up and Roy Helu isn’t quite ready to assume a bigger role. That leaves Torain to shoulder the load on a very good team!

Jackie Battle – Kansas City Chiefs – Finally, somebody in KC that can run the ball. Battle received more carries than Thomas Jones and Dexter McCluster combined last week and went off for 140 combined yards. He will get a lot of touches going forward behind a very very good offensive line. [ad-8469823]

Jonathan Dwyer – Pittsburgh Steelers – Dwyer looked great on Sunday subbing for Rashard Mendenhall’s sub Isaac Redman who like Mendenhall went down with an injury.

Others to Monitor: Delone Carter and Donald Brown – Indianapolis, Earnest Graham and Kregg Lumpkin – Tampa Bay Buccaneers


Doug Baldwin – Seattle Seahawks – Baldwin was on the radar last week but is now a hot commodity. Baldwin had 8 catches for 136 yards and a score Sunday and now has 13 catches and 220 yards in his last two weeks.

Victor Cruz – New York Giants – he may already be gone in your league but if not he is an automatic add. Cruz has 369 yards receiving and 3 touchdowns in his last 3 weeks.

Darius Heyward-Bey – Oakland Raiders – It has been a long time coming but Heyward-Bey has finally emerged with some semi-consistent production. In Week 4 DHB went for 155 yards receiving and in Week 5 he had 99 yards and a touchdown. How many of your receivers can say that?

Others to Monitor – Damian Williams – Tennessee, Deion Branch – New England, Harry Douglas – Atlanta, Kevin Walter – Houston


Jared Cook – Tennessee Titans – Cook has really benefitted from the injury to Kenny Britt – he has become the second option for Matt Hasselbeck. On Sunday, Cook was targeted nine times and turned those into four catches and 59 yards. In his last two games Cook has 6 catches and 152 yards.

Jake Ballard – New York Giants – Ballard has scored in two straight games and has easily replaced Kevin Boss. Ballard has 6 catches, 105 yards and two scores in his last 2 games and is definitely worth a look.

Others to monitor – Aaron Hernandez – New England, Daniel Fells – Denver, Jeremy Shockey – Carolina


Washington Redskins – The Skins are playing solid ball – top 10 in defense in the NFL and are coming out of the bye healthy. They have turnover prone Philadelphia which is tantalizing indeed. Currently they have 15 sacks in 4 games and have generated its share of turnovers as well.
