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.
TEAM DEFENSE—PICK THEM UP
Tampa Bay Buccaneers DST
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ defense has been overlooked this season mostly because their offense isn’t very competitive. The defensive squad has quietly been very solid. If you take away their Week 2 shootout with the New York Giants, they have given up just over 16 points and 350 total yards per game.
In the process they are averaging two sacks and 2.5 turnovers per game. It’s a solid squad that has already faced some elite quarterbacks in Cam Newton, Tony Romo, Eli Manning, and Robert Griffin III. This week they go up against Matt Cassel (or Brady Quinn) and a Kansas City Chiefs’ team giving up near the most points to opposing defenses in the league. They should make for a fine, widely available play this week for those of you streaming defenses.
Consider Adding In: 12-team and 14-team Leagues
