If you have a little uncertainty at the wide receiver position, you may need to search the waivers to see who is available for a plug and play. These are the top Week 6 fantasy football streamers at wide receiver that may be available for a pickup.
Week 6 Fantasy Football Streamers at WR
Christian Kirk, ARI (vs DAL)
Christian Kirk has a very good matchup this week, in a game that may be an absolute shoot-out. Owning a receiver versus the Dallas defense this season has worked out well for many fantasy owners. Kirk, who tallied 78 yards on five receptions last week, should continue to see opportunities as he gets more integrated into the offense. Especially in a dome on primetime, Kyler Murray should be able to shine and find Kirk a handful of times against a poor Dallas defense. Kirk is only owned in 43% of ESPN leagues, so if you are in need of a player who will have opportunities and has an incredible matchup, look Kirk’s way.

Chase Claypool, PIT (vs CLE)
Chase Claypool was probably the number one waiver wire add this week. However, he could still be out there. With an exceptional matchup against Cleveland this week, Claypool will look to continue his hot streak. Ben Roethlisberger has historically dominated Cleveland and will continue to this week. Claypool will be a mainstay in this offense, due to the injury concerns surrounding Diontae Johnson. With Johnson out, Claypool is a top streamer, facing a weak secondary.
Russell Gage, ATL (vs MIN)
Russell Gage is owned in 59% of ESPN leagues. In the matchup of two of the worst secondaries in the NFL, Gage may be the biggest benefactor if he is healthy enough to play. With Julio Jones still fighting injuries, but active and drawing top coverage, Gage will have opportunities to perform like he did in the beginning of the year. With Gage playing in the slot, he will probably be matched up against line backers and third string corners, which he can easily expose. This game has shoot-out written all over it, which is perfect for fantasy owners who are in need of a streamer receiver to fill in this week.
