NFL Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Wednesday: Week 5

NFL Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Wednesday: Week 5

NFL Football Teams Wallpapers


Deshaun Watson – We’ve been calling for Watson to be rostered for several weeks and the Texans rookie finally had his breakout performance against the division rival Tennessee Titans.  Watson accounted for 5 TDs, a rookie record, and looks like a budding superstar.  Lock him in your seasonal and DFS rosters as a cheap, high-upside QB.

Carson Palmer – Palmer has surpassed 300 yards in each of the last 3 weeks including a 357-1TD line against the 49ers.  He and fellow aging veteran, Larry Fitzgerald, are lighting up opposing defenses.  Palmer is owned in just over 50% of leagues and has a juicy matchup against the Eagles.

Brian Hoyer – Hoyer is our GPP flier option at QB this week.  The 49ers travel to Indy to take on the Colts.  Hoyer stinks, but the Colts secondary stinks worse.  Hoyer provides a relatively high floor at bargain basement salary.


Running Back

Aaron Jones – With Ty Montgomery going down with a rib injury, Jones is the next man up in the Packers backfield.  He will be the number 1 waiver-wire RB this week and deserves to be rostered, even if it’s just for a week or two.  He’s an excellent fill-in option as teams start their bye weeks this week.

Latavius Murray – The Vikings lost Dalvin Cook for the season with a torn ACL, ending what was a fantastic season before it ever really got started.  Murray and Jerick McKinnon will likely split the carries, with Murray receiving a slight advantage.

Wayne Gallman – The Giant’s running back and offensive line situation is a disaster as they rank near the bottom of the league in nearly all statistical categories.  Gallman is a tough runner that found some success on the ground and through the air, catching the first touchdown pass of his career.


Wide Receiver

Jaron Brown – With the loss of David Johnson, the Cardinals have turned to Carson Palmer to carry the load on offense.  Jaron Brown has been a nice surprise over the last three weeks as he has scored double-digit fantasy points in PPR formats.  He’s owned in less than 10% of leagues and deserves a roster spot.

Ricardo Louis – The 2nd year Browns WR was active against a tough Cincinnati defense as he caught five passes for 64 yards.  We don’t feel great about anything related to the Browns, but Louis has the most upside and looks like a stud next to Kenny Britt who appears to have trouble even running on and off the field.

Justin Hardy – With injuries to WRs Julio Jones and Muhammed Sanu, Hardy’s workload is expected if the two miss any extended time.  The Falcons are on a bye this week, but Hardy is worth and add in deeper leagues.


Tight End

Tyler Kroft – Tyler Eiffert has missed the last 2 weeks with a back injury and there’s no telling when he will be back or if he will even be playable.  Tyler Kroft looked great in his absence with a 6-68-2TD performance against the Browns.  Kroft and QB Andy Dalton have a nice rapport developed and should put up big numbers until Eiffert returns…if Eiffert returns.

O.J. Howard – Howard only has four catches on the season, but scored on a 58-yard touchdown pass – his first of his career – against a tough Giants defense.  The Bucc’s run a lot of two-TE sets with Howard and Cameron Brate and both should see their fair share of targets in the pass-heavy attack.
