The fifth week of NFL action is over and the waiver wire is looking surprisingly dry yet again. Nevertheless, there is still some value out there for those that have the roster space. A majority of the waiver wire adds we recommend this week are the same ones we recommended last week which goes to show just how useful this article can be for getting the jump on potential adds. Be sure to check your waivers for the “Carryovers from Last Week” because in most cases those guys hold the most value. Stay tuned for the cut list we publish every week so you know who you can safely drop.
Quick Note: Not all players that had strong Week 5 outings are on this list, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t have value. If you have any questions about free agents not discussed in this article, head over to the forums and we’ll help you with the answers. If you are wondering who to cut to pick these one of these players up, stay tuned for our Week 6Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Cut List.
KICKERS—PICK THEM UP
Connor Barth, K, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
In a week where there aren’t very many great kicker matchups, Connor Barth looks like a solid play. He has done well this year in part because of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ inability to finish drives. The Bucs are coming off their bye to face a terrible Kansas City Chiefs’ squad has given up two field goals and four extra points per game this season. Barth is averaging more than two field goal attempts a week.
He’s been perfect on his nine field goals to date, six of which were over 40 yards. In Week 4 he knocked down a 47, 50, and a ridiculous 57 yard field goal. Barth will get his attempts this week and there is no reason to believe he won’t make them. He’s available in an amazing 95% of FleaFlicker leagues so grab him up if you stream kickers.
