The 2016 NFL season is five weeks old and the time is now to start picking up people from their fantasy football waiver wire in order to make a playoff push. Every year a no name blows up in over the first few weeks of the season and ends up being a top-20 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire Wide Receivers for Week 6.
Chris Hogan, WR, New England Patriots

After totaling one catch for three yards over the previous two games, Hogan had four catches for 114 yards on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. Having Tom Brady back under center obviously helped, as well has having two of his catches go for more than 40 yards as a downfield target.

Hogan did leave Sunday’s game with a possible concussion after being hit at the end of a rushing attempt, and it’s worth noting he was only targeted once more after returning. That said, assuming health, Hogan is far ahead of Danny Amendola for snaps as New England’s No .2 wide receiver.
There are a lot of mouths to feed in the Patriots’ passing game, and Hogan is probably no better than fourth in that pecking order if everyone is healthy. But Brady’s presence raises everyone’s water level, and Hogan is worth adding in deeper leagues. — Brad Berreman
