These players should be targeted in fantasy football leagues for week 6.

1

RB Wendell Smallwood (7.7 Percent Ownership)

Eagles running back Jay Ajayi will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL. That opens the door for both Corey Clemet and Wendell Smallwood to take on larger roles in the Eagles offense. Smallwood scored 14 fantasy points against the Vikings and should be added from the waiver wire in all fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (15.6 percent ownership)

Lamar Miller was active against the Cowboys on Sunday night, but didn't play at all. That honor went to Blue, who had 20 carries for 46 rushing yards and eight catches for 73 yards. If Lamar Miller misses any time with injury, Blue will immediately become a fantasy starter in most leagues. He may have earned more of a share of the Houston backfield anyway with his pass catching performance on Sunday night. Fantasy owners in need of a RB should definitely add him from the waiver wire this week.
