Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Advice: Week 6 Free Agents To Consider

Your weekly list of potential mid-week additions.

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Each week, I look at my three big money leagues of 10-12 teams and see who is out there to get a overall feel. I do not list players just to list. I try to only show guys who will help your roster. The players on this week's list are mostly all bye week fill-in's at best. They just do not project as impact players in a statistical manner.

Here are some players that I mentioned last week that if still available should be picked up: Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz, Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West, New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett and the Buffalo Bills’ defense/special teams.

Here are my new options this week:


  • Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota: Coming off a huge week plus has three bottom four pass defenses coming up in the Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars.
  • Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith: He has been a top 15 QB in three out of four weeks and gets the awful Raiders defense this week.


  • Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker: This could be turning into a job share if last week’s 14-10 split is any indication.
  • Detroit Lions RB Justin Forsett: He may be done, but I doubt they are signing him just for depth.


  • Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams: QB Aaron Rodgers continue to give him as many chances as all other receivers.
  • Chicago Bears WR Cameron Meredith: Off a huge game last week. Bears QB Brian Hoyer seems to really like him in giving more targets than Alshon Jeffrey.
  • Cinncinatti Bengals WR Brandon LaFell: Someone has to get some targets opposite WR A.J. Green when they fall behind.


  • Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James: Who does not love a 6’7” target in the red zone?


  • Tennessee Titans D: The Cleveland Browns are a go against offense.
