NFL Fantasy: Week 6 Waiver Wire Targets
In need of some help off the waiver wire and don't know who to put a claim in on? Look no further, listed below are four players that are worth putting a claim in on, not only for this weeks games but upcoming ones as well.
Marcus Mariota, QB, Titans - Mariota and the Titans had quite the game on Sunday, they dominated with the run game and were efficient enough through the air to take down the Miami Dolphins. Even though Mariota didn't rack up the yardage through the air, only 163 YD's, he was able to throw three TD's and score another on the ground. If the Titans can continue to be efficient on both offensive facets of the game, Mariota could become extremely valuable down the stretch. (Owned in 47% of Yahoo Leagues)
Cameron Meredith, WR, Bears - With Kevin White set to undergo surgery and be lost for the coming weeks, Meredith stepped into his place and performed admirably. He led the team in targets and turned them into 9 REC/130 YDS/1 TD. The Bears are thin at the WR position outside of Alshon Jeffrey, so look for Meredith to be relied upon from here on out. He is a must-add this week so put those claims in now. (Owned in 3% of Yahoo Leagues)
Devontae Booker, RB, Broncos - Booker hasn't been a fantasy asset as of yet, but with C.J. Anderson struggling the last few weeks, Booker has been able to cut in Anderson's work load. This past Sunday he only carried the ball five times less Anderson and looked better with the limited touches he received. If C.J. continues to struggle, Booker will be more involved in the offense and will then become a viable option at the RB position. If you have a spot on your roster or need a player replaced, Booker is a good option. (Owned in 9% of Yahoo Leagues)
Jesse James, TE, Steelers - James is a very TD dependent option out of the tight-end position, in saying that he is the number one TE on the team. He may not get a lot of targets but when he gets them he usually makes the most out of them. James is a TE2 going forward, so if your in dire need of a TE James is worth adding.
