Week 6 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Miles Boykin, Auden Tate, And More
After an absolutely insane week in fantasy football where Will Fuller, Christian McCaffrey, Michael Thomas, Amari Cooper and more had their best fantasy games of the season…there is somehow a weak Week 6 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire? With no major injuries at the running back position (though a few that are up in the air), this week is more about grinding out the small edges than finding studs. After five weeks, you probably have a pretty good sense of if your team is good or not. Your 3-2 and 4-1 teams can start stashing backup running backs, handcuffs and maybe some high upside rookies (like a few of the playes we are about to discuss).
On the other hand, if your teams are struggling, it is time to start making tough choices. Injured players? They have to go. My partners and I just dropped Cam Newton, our 10th round pick, from one of our FFPC Main Event teams. Christian Kirk, after missing this week against the Bengals, might find himself on the chopping block if he is not ready to go in Week Six. Another key thing to note is that the value of your FAAB should be related to how badly you need a win. If you are 1-4, what are you waiting for? You need to be bidding extra on the best streaming defenses and quarterbacks because you can’t afford to take another loss.
