Colts Robert Turbin, Seahawks David Moore Among Notable Waiver Adds

Colts Robert Turbin, Seahawks David Moore Among Notable Waiver Adds

Your Week Five Waiver Targets

RotoExperts Special for the Associated Press

More notable injuries, plus the Buccaneers and Bears being on byes this week, will create a greater sense of urgency when heading to the waiver wire. Be prepared to spend aggressively if you use a Free Agency Acquisition Budget (FAAB), or have contingent/alternative options ready if you do not expect to land your most preferred preference in a waiver order.

Running Backs

Robert Turbin, Indianapolis (0.3 percent owned): He returns from a four-game suspension this week, and Turbin is a veteran who can bring a stabilizing presence to the Colts’ 29th-ranked rushing game. Turbin can be an adequate solution for the Colts as a ball carrier, and he scored seven TDs two years ago. He has flex potential, with Marlon Mack not being able to stay healthy, and Nyheim Hines possibly complementing him as a pass-catcher at RB. The Colts play on a short week this Thursday, but add Turbin for possible impact thereafter.

Alfred Blue, Houston (1.9): Lamar Miller has rushed for 59 yards on 24 carries in the past two games, and he sat out the fourth quarter in the Week Four win over Indianapolis. Miller has never lived up to expectations since coming to Houston, and it would not be surprising to see Blue start to cut into his workload even more soon.

Ty Montgomery, Green Bay (40.0): Injuries are starting to pile up at the WR position for Green Bay, and despite the buzz about Aaron Jones recently, this remains a pass-first offense. Montgomery, who is a former wide receiver and has familiarity with Aaron Rodgers, has caught eight passes for 105 yards in his past two games and is worth an add in Point Per Reception (PPR) formats. Rodgers may look to him frequently as a known target over some other less experienced pass-catchers who may see more playing time soon.

Mike Davis, Seattle (0.2): He was a surprise starter over Rashaad Penny when Chris Carson (ankle) was declared a late inactive in Week Four. Davis stepped into he void and rushed for 101 yards and two scores. Carson has been riddled by injuries early in his pro career and the rookie Penny does not seem to have the confidence of the coaching staff yet. Davis can at least be a short-term option. Don’t bid too heavily, though, as he may only serve you well enough for a game or two.

Wide Receivers

Willie Snead, Baltimore (5.5): We are witnessing the re-emergence of the Snead we saw in his first two pro seasons with New Orleans. The resurgent Baltimore passing game has re-energized Snead Fantasy wise from a PPR perspective. He has scored in double figures in three of four games so far in that format and he is a fine bye week plug-in.

Keke Coutee, Houston (0.5): The fourth round rookie stepped in Will Fuller in Week Four, and tied a modern NFL record for catches in a pro debut with 11 receptions vs. Indianapolis. There have been some questions about why Fuller was removed from the game and did not see second half action, but he is injury-prone and Coutee, who finished with 109 receiving yards, has a chance to stay relevant in the Texans passing game.

Chester Rogers, Indianapolis (0.3): With T.Y. Hilton hurting, Rogers caught eight passes for 85 yards and added a two-point conversion in Week Four vs. Houston. Hilton could miss Thursday’s game at New England and Rogers could be ticketed for a significant role again.

David Moore, Seattle (0.0): The Seahawks need to have playmakers step forward in their passing game, and Moore, who has flashed during the preseason, has downfield and big-play promise, and caught two passes for 39 yards last week at Arizona. Doug Baldwin is a health risk and Brandon Marshall is very obviously done and will have his snap counts reduced, so Moore may have to step forward and continue to make an impact.

Tight Ends

Tyler Kroft (0.4): The most obvious and possibly sought-after add this week at a very thin and unreliable position, Kroft has already effectively replaced Tyler Eifert before, as he caught seven TD passes last year. Andy Dalton loves to look for his tight ends in the red zone, so be prepared to bid heavily in FAAB situations.

Cameron Brate (10.6): Rising star O.J. Howard is expected to miss two to four weeks with a knee injury, and Jameis Winston has been re-installed as Tampa Bay’s starting QB. Brate, who caught eight TD passes last year with Winston as the full season starter, now instantly becomes a TE1 candidate again.

Quarterback

Jamies Winston, Tampa Bay (8.4): He has been confirmed as the starter when the Buccaneers when return from the bye week, and with a need to throw often to a fine receiving group because of the lack of a defense and running game, game flow will frequently put Winston in high volume passing situations.
