Week 6 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pick-Ups

It is already week 6, and let’s face it injuries have been rough this year.  I have been punished by injuries this year, but I some how have still managed to only lose 1 game. Well here are several players that should be able to help you win. I will give you a top player to pick up at every position.


Nick Foles – QB – Philadelphia Eagles – Foles is not owned in my 12 team league, so if he is out there in your league, you have to pick him up.  The guy is a very good passer and is a gun slinger.  With Desean Jackson talking trash, he could have a huge day, we will see if Desean gets the upper hand on the Bucs defense.

Other options: Terrelle Pryor (OAK), Geno Smith (NYJ), Ryan Fitzpatrick (TEN)

Running Back:

Zac Stacy – RB – St. Louis Rams – Stacy was named the running by Jeff Fisher, and last week in limited play he was solid.  Stacy ran for 78 yards and was running extremely hard.  He is a very solid fantasy football starter.

Other options: Marcel Reece (OAK), Andre Ellington (ARI), Jonathan Stewart (CAR) – He has been hurt

Wide Receiver:

Alshon Jeffrey – WR – Chicago Bears – This was my week 6 waiver pick up. I was blown away he was still there.  I don’t get it, but I am happy I was able to pick him up. If he is available, steal him. Someone had actually cut him in week 2, and no one claimed him.  I was going through my waiver wire reports and found he was cut.  This is a steal if out there.

Other Options: Denarius Moore (OAK), Robert Woods (BUF), Terrence Williams (DAL)

Tight End:

Garrett Graham – TE – Houston Texans – The Houston Texans found out that Owen Daniels, Matt Schaub’s favorite target will miss up to 4 weeks.  Graham is a very athletic pass catcher, and if you league is like mine, the tight end gets 2 points per reception.  Graham can get  you some good money this week.

Other Options: Jeff Cumberland (NYJ),Mychal Rivera (OAK), Scott Chandler (BUF)


Cleveland Browns – If they are out there, pick them up.  Travis Benjamin on returns is special, that kid can get you tons of points.  He killed the Buffalo Bills last week and forced them to cut their punter.  Browns defense is turnt up and looking good.

Other Options: New York Jets, Dallas Cowboys, Cincinnati Bengals


Mason Crosby – K – Green Bay Packers – It is about time you jump on the Crosby bandwagon.  He is not owned in my league and had a huge week.  This guy is on fire as of late.  Nick Folk is another great option.

Other Option: Nick Folk (NYJ), Alex Henery (PHI), Ryan Succop (KC)
