Week 6 Waiver Wire WRs: Buy, Sell, Hold

Things don’t always go as planned in fantasy football, but now is the time to make your adjustments. I once started off 0-5 and ran the table the rest of the way to the Championship. It CAN be done.

This piece will guide you through the wide receivers to target as well as avoid headed into week 6.

Week 5 DraftKings Cheat Code

Take advantage of four market inefficiencies on DraftKings in week 5.

Matthew Stafford, Dion Lewis, Leonard Hankerson, and Derek Carrier are noteworthy value plays who could either serve as the cornerstones of an optimal cash lineup or add upside variance to a GPP/tournament roster, or both.

Chris Ivory: Discount Beast Mode

Contrary to popular belief, Chris Ivory’s comparison is not himself, but this should not devalue him. While he profiles closest to Isaiah Crowell, he has all the makings of becoming the next Beast Mode.

Chris Ivory is an underrated every down back when healthy.

Tyler Eifert, Top-5 Tight End

Beyond Rob Gronkowski, it’s tough finding top-tier tight ends in fantasy football. Tyler Eifert has been playing like one so far this season, and he’s only getting started. His talent and snap share make him a top-5 tight end going forward, and a must-buy player.

Although many fantasy “hype trains” have been derailed after the first three weeks, Eifert’s train has not even hit full steam. In fact, his week three goose egg is sure to have owners second-guessing his potential, which means now is a perfect time to pounce.

Week 4 DraftKings Cheat Code

Now is the time to take advantage of a handful of lagging DFS salaries that do not align with this season’s reality.

Karlos Williams, Andy Dalton, and Leonard Hankerson are noteworthy value plays who could either serve as the cornerstones of an optimal cash lineup or add upside variance to a GPP/tournament roster, or both.

Maxx Williams Breakout Alert!!!!!

Rookie tight ends tend to disappoint in fantasy football given the learning curve that’s steeper than the other skill positions once a player reaches the NFL level.

But when a prospect as precocious as Maxx Williams receives the chance to be an every-down starter, owners need to stash him for as long as he remains in that role.

Is Sammy Watkins a Bust?

While Sammy Watkins is the top receiver in Buffalo, the hype on him went too far, and he is not able to pay off his owners well. Time will tell if Sammy is the problem, or if his situation is the problem.

While Sammy Watkins is not yet a bust, there are numerous reasons to believe that he is over-valued in fantasy football.

Week 3 DraftKings Cheat Code

In Week 3, forecasting fantasy football outcomes starts to get more straightforward. Less crawling in the dark. More 2015 game data. Less speculation. More match-up conviction. Less uncertainty.

Donte Moncrief’s resume of productivity and playmaker profile is exciting in a vacuum. Now give him 10-targets a game from Andrew Luck. Now make his price $4,800 on DraftKings. Donte Moncrief is what an auto-play looks like in week 3.

DeVante Parker and the Best Rookie WR Lottery Tickets

Fantasy owners are always looking for the next waiver wire folk hero in the mold of 2014’s Odell Beckham. Be the owner acquiring the electric playmaker, not the owner who drops a league-winning rookie after one quiet week.

DeVante Parker, Dorial Green-Beckham, and Phillip Dorsett are three rookie WRs fantasy owners should acquire and stash now before they break out and become unattainable.

Donte Moncrief’s Sex Appeal

Hopefully you didn’t suffer the nightmare of accidentally sleeping through your waiver period without putting a claim in on Moncrief.

PlayerProfiler.com outlines why Donte Moncrief is more than just a Week 1 waiver wire pickup. He checks all the boxes to become the next WR1 fantasy superstar.
