Your Week Six plug-and-play options
This is yet another week where only two teams are on bye (Saints and Lions). You know we are going to pay for this eventually, so it’s important to look ahead. You may not have any roster issues this week, but perhaps next week or in two weeks, you will. The reason you look ahead is because it may be cheaper to pick up players off of the waiver wire now than it will be in two weeks. Jameis Winston was a perfect example. If you needed a QB, you may have spent more on Winston than you wanted to pick him up this week, but if you had done it the week before, when he was on bye, it may have cost you very little. Here are players who may help you this week.
Andy Dalton, Cincinnati Bengals: While it’s true that Matt Ryan and the high-flying Falcons laid an egg against the Steelers last Sunday, does anyone really think the problems on that defense have been solved? I don’t. Dalton wouldn’t be my first choice as a streaming QB this week, but he’s not my last either.
