Five must-add week 6 fantasy football waiver wire pickups

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.

2

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.

3

San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard (3.1 percent ownership)

If you are desperate for a quarterback to start in week 6, Beathard can be a good fill-in. The 49ers quarterback ended his fantasy day last Sunday with 19 fantasy points despite four turnovers. His rushing ability makes him a worthy fill-in, especially against a Green Bay defense that just allowed the Lions to score at will last week.

4

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (19.7 percent Ownership)

Will Fuller may have to watch out as DeShaun Watson has found a new weapon in Keke Coutee. One week after catching 11 passes for 109 yards, Coutee again ended his day with double digit fantasy points by catching 6 passes for 51 yards and a touchdown. It's worth adding the potential break out receiver from the Texans to fantasy rosters.

5

Seattle Seahawks RB Mike Davis (14.5% Ownership)

Mike Davis appeared on this list last week, but most thought the return of Chris Carson would end Davis' fantasy relevance. Instead, Davis rushed for 68 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. He ended his day with 12 fantasy points and will clearly be a part of this Seahawks offense moving forward.
