After last week’s waiver wire appeared to be full of a bounty of riches, this week is more comparable to buying Halloween candy on November 1st. You’ll need to do your homework, but this may be one of the weeks where you want to wait to see what your league mates do.
If you opt not to use your initial waiver claim, it would allow you to pick up a player that someone drops. This is a good week for tight ends, and you would be wise to target one if it has been an area of weakness. It has been a particularly challenging year to find consistent play at the position.
One player to target is Panthers tight end Ed Dickson. With Greg Olsen out, Dickson appears to be the man in Carolina, and has stepped up to the expanded role. Dickson had five receptions for 175 in Week 5 against the Lions. Don’t expect Dickson to get nearly 200 yards every week, but he also was held out of the end zone. Dickson may have less receiving yards going forward, but is also likely to start scoring touchdowns at some point.
Here’s a look at my waiver wire rankings for Week 6. As more games go final, we will continue to add to this list.
