There aren’t many obvious “must-haves” in our week 6 best fantastic waiver feed pickups and free agent additions, but there is at least one big one: Handcuffs Giants RB Devontae Booker. Sadly, Saquon Barkley suffered a nasty ankle injury, which is why Booker will be entitled to a waiver claim, especially with the byes coming in this week. Barkley wasn’t the only starting running back to have left a game earlier, as Patriots murderer Damien Harris (chest) was also affected. This potentially paves the way for the novice sleeper Rhamondre Stevenson to finally get her shot too. He joins the likes of Booker, Kadarius toney, David njoku, and Hunter Henri as a projected top add this week. (Update: And Darrel Williams after Clyde Edwards-Helaire injured his knee on Sunday night.)

Our full list of free agents offers a bunch of depth options, including AJ Dillon, Samaje Perine, Khalil Herbert, Mark Callaway, and Ricky Seals-Jones. Of course, with the farewells here, streamers will be of the utmost importance, and we have plenty of suggestions specific to Week 6 QB, WR, TE, and D / ST, which can be found on the site. end of this list.

CONTINUED WEEK 6: Complete waiver list

Booker will certainly command a higher claim, as the initial reading on Barkley is that he will be missing several weeks. According to Harris’ prognosis, Stevenson could also apply for a high to medium level waiver request. (Update: The same goes for Darrel Williams.) Other than that, however, you’re probably better off sticking to your waiver position. Toney likely won’t arrive in free agency, but it’s hard to say it’s worth a top-five ranking as he thinks he sees a drop in production when New York’s WR corps is in good shape. health.

Whether or not you use a claim this week may depend on your record and how desperate you are at a certain position. It might seem unnecessary to use a top five claim on someone like Njoku or Hunter Henry, but if you’re in dire straits at TE for whatever reason, it might be worth it. There’s a good chance you can get one as an FA if it hasn’t already been selected in your league, but you never know when other needy TE owners are watching them as well. Of course, if there are several TEs that you find useful, then there is no need to burn the claim. It’s about doing the research and weighing your options. There will be more injuries in the future, so having a high claim will help at some point.

Best Fantasy Football Waiver Cable Pickups for Week 6

Unless otherwise specified, only players belonging to less than 50% of Yahoo leagues are considered.

Devontae Booker, RB, Giants. Saquon Barkley went through the first four weeks and seemed to be getting stronger, but the injury bug that worried so many fantasy owners during the preseason made its way through Week 5. Barkley got his ankle rolled against. the Cowboys. It immediately swelled to an unpleasant level and was transported. Barkley’s long-term diagnosis is unclear, but it is essential to get hold of Booker. He thinks he’ll be the starter for the foreseeable future, and while he’s not exactly a high potential guy, he’s shown his worth with 19 touches, 58 total yards and two touchdowns against the Cowboys. Each back is valuable with decent volume, and with the farewells coming, someone like Booker will be a flexible consideration most weeks. His next two clashes against the Rams and Panthers aren’t great, but he could really erupt in Week 8 against the Chiefs.

Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, Patriots. It was only a matter of time before Stevenson had a chance in a New England, and with Damien Harris losing another key fumble at the goal line and injuring his chest, it seems like the moment have come. Stevenson’s final numbers against the Texans were nothing special (nine carries, 23 yards), but he broke several tackles on a touchdown point that was ultimately recalled. More importantly, if Harris is running out of time because of the injury or because he’s in Bill Belichick’s niche, Stevenson will be the leader in the backfield by default. It’s worth adding that luck at least, especially with an upcoming clash against Dallas.

Darrel Williams, RB, Chiefs. With Clyde Edwards-Helaire knocked out of Sunday night’s game with a painful knee injury, Williams is in a position to take over as Kansas City’s main defenseman. He’s a capable runner and wide receiver, so he should get around 15 touches next week against the vulnerable Washington defense. Enough to make it a low-end RB2 / high-end flex. Jerick McKinnon might have some value in the PPR leagues as well, but Williams is the best player to own.

CONTINUED WEEK 6: Complete waiver list

Kadarius Toney, WR, Giants. Toney played in the absence of Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and Darius Slayton (hamstring), and he saw even more targets in Week 5 when Kenny Golladay (knee) came out early. Toney finished the day with 10 catches (13 targets) for 189 yards. He also attempted a pass and carried a carry inside the 10 in a wild snap. It’s unclear when New York’s WR body will be healthy, but Toney has shown enough to deserve more playing time when everyone returns. Even next week against the Rams, he’ll be worth flex.

David Njoku, TE, Browns. Njoku had a good week 1 (three catches, 76 yards), then mostly disappeared for the next three games. He came up in a big way against the Chargers in Week 5, catching all seven targets for 149 yards and a touchdown. It’s hard to get too excited for someone like Njoku, even after a game like this, but it’s clear that he has a major advantage in any game. At TE, this has value. so Njoku is worth a free agent pickup. He’ll get the Cardinals, one of the best TE defenses in the league, in Week 6.

Mark Callaway, WR, Saints. Callaway was a big disappointment this year, but he won in a very favorable game in Week 5, catching four of eight targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns. To be fair, one of those touchdowns was a 49-yard Hail Mary at the end of the first half, but Callaway was still clearly involved and productive. The Saints have time off next week, and Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre’Quan Smith (hamstring) could return in Week 7, both of which would reduce Callaway’s workload, but maybe that he would also see more favorable coverage. Either way, it’s worth adding as an element of depth now that the goodbyes are here.
