For the second straight week, we ran into more COVID-19 issues with the postponement of the Broncos-Patriots and Bills-Titans games. Many injuries hit the league again this week as well, making the Week 6 fantasy waiver wire pickups that much more important.
I said it last week and I’ll say it again: active fantasy managers win their leagues. If you were here the previous five weeks, you know the drill. In order to stay in contention for the fantasy playoffs with all these injuries plaguing your team, you have to work the waivers and grab players who are on the rise.
With that being said, here are my top Week 6 waiver wire pickups that are on the rise in fantasy value, and could in turn put up good fantasy points.
I also have some drop-worthy candidates, but by no means are must-drops.
Players must be owned in less than 60 percent of ESPN leagues to be included in the fantasy football Week 6 waiver wire pickups column. All ownerships for waiver wire players will be provided and will reflect that of Monday evening.
