Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups


Carson Palmer (ARI)Carson Palmer

  • I could see this move if you are in a deep league or own Eli Manning, Tyrod Taylor, Andrew Luck, and/or Marcus Mariota.  Palmer is second in the league in passing yards with 1,856 and still has capable receivers.

D’Onta Foreman (HOU)D'Onta Foreman

  • D’Onta Foreman made it very clear this season that he had the potential to be on of the best running backs in the league. Thus far, the split of runs between Foreman and Lamar Miller is around 60-40 with Foreman dominating the red zone rushes. I can only see the number of runs he receives going up.

Josh Doctson (WAS)Josh Doctson

  • Josh Doctson is a guy who Kirk Cousins and the Redskins love. Doctson’s usage will skyrocket with the loss of Desean Jackson and Pierre Garcon this offseason. Kirk Cousins has a special ability to spread the ball to all of his receivers; making no names like Doctson fantasy relevant.

David Njoku (CLE)David Njoku

  • With Corey Coleman being placed on IR rookie TE David Njoku should receive more targets the rest of the season. The first round pick out of Miami scored has three touchdowns in the first six weeks along with 14 receptions and 118 receiving yards, so expect Cleveland to integrate this physical beast into their offense.

Dustin Hopkins (WAS)Dustin Hopkins

  • My philosophy with kickers in fantasy is to make sure they are accompanied by a great offense. Kirk Cousins will make any offense good, but on top of that they are playing bad teams who have give up a ton of fantasy points against kickers.

Texans vs. D/STbrand

  • The trend now that JJ Watt and Whitney Mercilus are out for the season is to drop the texans defense, but I still see fantasy value. With teams coming up like the Browns, the Colts, the 49ers, and the Ravens I still see the Texans finishing the year as a top 10 defense.
