The Week 5 waiver wire was fairly boring, so we’re looking at Week 6 waivers with our weekly watch record in an try and discover the subsequent must-have pickups and free agent provides. Ronald Jones was in all probability the spotlight of final week’s watch record, as he carried the ball 19 instances for 70 yards in Week Four and shot above 50-percent owned in Yahoo leagues and off of watch record consideration for this week (though with Jones, you by no means know — he could be again quickly). We additionally hope you added Golden Tate and Phillip Dorsett — Tate coming off suspension and Dorsett with a mouthwatering matchup for this week. Additionally, we have been per week forward of everybody on Dawson Knox.
This week’s watch record undoubtedly is missing within the working again division. I all the time say, what would we do with out Ronald Jones? Apparently the reply is filling our RB part of the watch record with such uninspiring names as Gus Edwards, Mark Walton, and J.D. McKissic. Receivers are undoubtedly the place this week’s watch record shines. There are all kinds of playable choices within the Week 6 Tua Bowl between the Dolphins and Redskins. We even have Dawson Knox again for one more go spherical as he makes an attempt to seize the discover of the informal fantasy participant.

Week 6 Waiver Wire Watch Record: Quarterback
Notable quarterbacks on a Week 6 bye: Josh Allen, Jacoby Brissett, Mitchell Trubisky/Chase Daniel, Derek Carr
Kirk Cousins, Vikings (42 p.c possession)
Cousins will get an ideal Week 6 matchup towards a brutal Eagles’ secondary. He could be coming off a ownership-boosting recreation towards the Giants in Week 5, so for those who can seize him forward of schedule, you may get a QB with momentum heading into one other promising matchup.
Sam Darnold, Jets (13)
When Darnold returns from mono, his possession ought to rise nearer to a 3rd of leagues. He suits the invoice as a low-end QB2 in two-QB or superflex leagues. His Week 6 matchup towards the Cowboys is not nice, however for those who’re in a league the place Darnold must be owned when wholesome, now could be the time to pounce.
Kyle Allen, Panthers (12)
The Buccaneers allowed greater than 500 passing yards to Jared Goff in Week 4. Positive, the Panthers will run greater than L.A. did in that recreation, however Allen ought to be capable of transfer the ball down the sector towards Tampa, and it appears to be like like Cam Newton will nonetheless be out a couple of extra weeks.
WEEK 5 PPR RANKINGS: Operating again | Large receiver | Tight finish
Week 6 Waiver Wire Watch Record: RB
Notable working backs on a Week 6 bye: Devin Singletary/Frank Gore, Marlon Mack/Nyheim Hines, David Montgomery/Tarik Cohen, Josh Jacobs
Justice Hill, Ravens (10) | Gus Edwards, Ravens (8)
The Ravens let each Hill and Edwards determine extra closely into taking part in time of Week Four towards Cleveland than they’d within the first three weeks. They’re additionally matched up in Week 6 with a Bengals’ protection that allowed James Conner and Jaylen Samuels to each achieve success dual-threat backs in Week 4. In the event you’re determined, Edwards may have worth as a standard-league FLEX whereas Hill may probably work in PPR.
Jordan Wilkins, Colts (3)
Possibly Marlon Mack is the AFC model of Matt Breida and can all the time be harm. He is presently nursing a calf/ankle harm and beginning to miss practices each week. If that occurs, Wilkins takes over the early-down work. That might occur as quickly as Week 5 towards the Chiefs, so keep tuned.
Mark Walton, Dolphins (0)
Walton outsnapped Kalen Ballage for the primary time in Week 4, and with the commerce deadline approaching, Kenyan Drake may quickly be out of city. Walton would turn into the sleeper again to personal for the Dolphins, as extra consideration would initially go to Ballage. However Walton is a greater receiver and simpler on a per-play dashing foundation, too.
J.D. McKissic, Lions (0)
McKissic got here out of nowhere to play greater than a 3rd of the Lions’ snaps in an in depth recreation towards Kansas Metropolis in Week 4. Their Week 5 bye means we cannot get extra proof of whether or not that may proceed, however he rushed 4 instances for 30 yards and had two targets within the passing recreation. Possibly he’ll have deep-league worth sooner or later within the close to future.

Week 6 Waiver Wire Watch Record: WR
Notable broad receivers on a Week 6 bye: John Brown/Cole Beasley, T.Y. Hilton/Zach Pascal/Parris Campbell/Deon Cain/Chester Rogers, Allen Robinson/Taylor Gabriel, Tyrell Williams
Jamison Crowder, Jets (45)
With Darnold quickly again, Crowder will return to the intriguing possession receiver who obtained 17 targets in Week 1. After that week, his possession share skyrocketed, and it may once more if that connection appears to be like pretty much as good upon Darnold’s return.
Deebo Samuel, 49ers (27)
A Week Four bye depressed Samuel’s possession after it had been rising for weeks, and if he was dropped in your league, he is choice to choose again up. Samuel nonetheless shapes up as the most effective mixture of consistency and explosiveness within the San Francisco receiving corps, and the Niners will face a reeling Rams’ protection in Week 6.
Diontae Johnson, Steelers (25)
Two straight weeks with lengthy touchdowns has put Johnson into the fantasy consciousness, however he nonetheless hasn’t been purchased into by nearly all of homeowners, it appears. The Steelers focused him probably the most amongst their wideouts in Week 4, and he clearly has the power to beat gamers deep. If he does it once more, the possession will preserve rising rapidly.
Paul Richardson, Redskins (16) | Trey Quinn, Redskins (2)
They’re taking part in the Dolphins. In a way, it is that straightforward. Quinn is the popular PPR choice, whereas Richardson has likelihood of getting a landing for standard-league homeowners.
DeVante Parker, Dolphins (9) | Preston Williams, Dolphins (8)
They’re taking part in the Redskins. In a way, it is that straightforward. The Dolphins may need their greatest likelihood of a win all season on this recreation, and Parker and Williams ought to have sufficient room to function within the Washington secondary to have strong video games with possibilities of scoring.
Antonio Callaway, Browns (3)
Callaway may need probably the most worth he has all season in Week 5 with Jarvis Landry coping with a concussion, which may thrust the returned-from-suspension Callaway into a brief No. 2 position. He is a deep menace in an offense that has potential to be nice, so there are worse speculative provides.

Week 6 Waiver Wire Watch Record: TE
Notable tight ends on a Week 6 bye: Dawson Knox, Eric Ebron/Jack Doyle, Trey Burton, Darren Waller
Chris Herndon, Jets (26)
Herndon returns from suspension in Week 6. He was our No. 12 TE within the preseason earlier than his suspension got here down the pipe, so we like him as a borderline starter (so long as Darnold is again from mono).
Vernon Davis, Redskins (25)
Nonetheless gotta discover guys to play towards the Dolphins, and Davis has been comparatively productive and constant this season. Depend on a pair good end-zone appears to be like for Davis in Week 6.
Noah Fant, Broncos (12)
The Chargers have allowed the seventh-most fantasy factors to tight ends in 2019. Fant has been concerned in some capability within the Broncos’ offense each week to date, and so he offers a non-zero flooring with a bit extra ceiling in matchup this week. If he scores once more, he’ll be a well-liked pickup.
