Marquez Callaway and Carson Wentz are in the top five fantasy football pickups to help you clinch a win in Week 6.
The first five weeks of the NFL season have been relatively smooth for fantasy football owners as all of their players (except injuries) are available. The real challenge begins in Week 6 when the New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, and San Francisco 49ers kick off the off season with one week off and the other 28. teams will follow over the next nine weeks.
Let’s take a look at the Week 6 waiver thread for five players that can help your fantastic roster both immediately and during the weeks off. All of the players listed here are available in over 50 percent of the leagues on Yahoo Sports.
5. Best Fantasy Football Pickups For Week 6 – Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz
If you’re reading this article on Monday morning, you can go get Wentz right now ahead of the waiver period, which can be helpful if you’re trying to find a replacement for injured Russell Wilson. Wentz could have a hard time on Monday night against the Baltimore Ravens, but his upcoming schedule is juicy for fantastic purposes.
The Colts play three divisional games over the next seven weeks, allowing Wentz to feast on their questionable defenses, as well as the New York Jets. TY Hilton is also on the mend and may return from the casualty reserve soon, adding a big play wide receiver to help Wentz even more.
Present in just 13% of Yahoo leagues, Wentz is a good replacement for Wilson owners and a potential plug-and-play starter in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
