Week 6 Dynasty Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets

4 min read

Chase Edmonds, ARI, RB: Less than 5% Owned

Waiver Wire Priority: Low
FAAB Budget Recommendation: 0-5%

No, this isn’t because of the serviceable game he had against the woeful Bengals. This is because of the fact that David Johnson is having back issues and from my eyes, was slow to get up at times. Even if he doesn’t miss week 5’s tilt versus Atlanta, I’m sure they’ll lighten the load while using Chase Edmonds. He already saw somewhat of an uptick in usage with Christian Kirk out, I’d imagine he’ll see more work with Johnson hobbled. He’s a capable pass catcher and somewhat of a “David Johnson Lite” in terms of what he can do. Something somewhat notable is that his carries per game have increased a tiny bit every game. If you’re hurting for a running back to throw in your lineup that could be valuable (at the very least to the David Johnson owner), it couldn’t hurt to go get Edmonds who, at the very least, is on a high flying offense.

Willie Snead, BAL, WR: Less than 5% Owned

Waiver Wire Priority: Low
FAAB Budget Recommendation: 0-5%

We’ve got the need for Snead who I actually think should be rostered more than he is currently. Opportunity is second to volume in terms of being king. He is the team’s king when it comes to opportunity (highest snap count percentage on the offense) but when it comes to targets, Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews are tied for the crown. Which says to me, when that volume fails those two, (injury or covered up) Mr. Third in targets and King in snap count percentage should be right there ready to make the most of it. Lamar Jackson doesn’t want to be known as a runner, so the pass attempts will be there. Cincinnati is up next twice in four weeks which bodes well since they can’t stop a car at a red light. He’s a decent flex option for someone hurting for production.

Albert Wilson, MIA, WR: Less than 3% Owned

Waiver Wire Priority: Low
FAAB Budget Recommendation: 0%

Yes, we know that the Miami Dolphins team as a whole stinks to high heavens, but we can’t ignore the players on available for use (no matter how hard one would try). Albert Wilson has been out since week one with a calf injury but has a chance to come back in week 6 vs the Redskins who are terrible defending the middle of the field. Albert Wilson is effective when given the chance and plays, you guessed it, the slot position. Look for Miami and Josh Rosen to attack there as a means of getting some yardage through everyone but, Wilson will be the guy here if he can go. He’s worth a hold as well because when he flashes, he flashes big. What he means to me is essentially a free, 27 year old, athletic wide receiver. He had a rush and 4 targets in just 6 snaps, they want to use him and they will.

Duke Williams, BUF, WR: Less than 1% owned

Waiver Wire Priority: Low
FAAB Budget Recommendation: 2-6%

He’ll be a hot add but this almost feels league dependent. Some know about the kid and what he’s done, others (like the cats in my work leagues) have no idea who he is. So, know your league and proceed accordingly. From what I can gather, Duke seems to be just what the doctor ordered for their wide receiver corps. Immediately coming in and supplanting Zay Jones, Duke came in and did well. What’s worth noting is that he was targeted 4 times and saw a lot of field time. Only John Brown saw more with just 2 more snaps (I know I mentioning that a lot today). Worth keeping an eye on especially with a bye coming up (you may be able to snag him for free). I would be remiss without properly noting that you can also just add him to your taxi squad and watch it play out.
