10 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets Heading Into Week 6
Week 5 was fun. Mostly because we avoided any major injuries to fantasy relevant players.
"Angry Tom Brady" took out his rage on the helpless Cleveland Browns, throwing for 406 yards and 3 touchdowns in his return. The Black Unicorn must have been pretty angry, too, because he was responsible for all three of Brady's touchdowns. The New York Jets abomination of a secondary gave up another bomb, this time in the form of a 72-yard touchdown catch by Sammie Coates. Rookie Ezekiel Elliott continued to show us that he's pretty good at this whole football thing. And the Matt Ryan reign of terror continued, this time against the top-notch Denver Broncos.
All in all, Week 5 was a breath of fresh air.
More often than not, the early months of the fantasy football season tend to resemble the well-known "This is fine." meme, as fantasy owners watch the team that they worked so hard to perfectly assemble crash and burn right in front of them. So, when we get a chance to sit back and watch a good weekend of football and not worry about who will replace our most recently injured starter, let's not take it for granted.
But enough reflecting -- it's time to look forward. Here is a look at 10 players you should be targeting on the waiver wire as we look ahead to Week 6.
