Last week I wrote about several players who should be added from the waiver wireand about several fantasy trade targets for week 5. Derek Carr and Amari Cooper proved me right and Terrance West took over the reigns in the Ravens backfield. In week 6 there are several fantasy players that owners can now target on the waiver wire.

1. Chris Hogan (34.8% Ownership ESPN).

Hogan reportedly had a connection with Tom Brady in the offseason and proved that wasn't just talk by catching four passes for 114 yards on Sunday. The deep ball threat will continue to have value as long as Brady is healthy and can score a deep touchdown at any point during the game.

Pick him up from the waiver wire if you can.

2. Sammie Coates (39.8% Ownership ESPN).

If Coates isn't owned in your fantasy leagues, put in a waiver wire claim for him immediately, Coates has quickly become the Steelers number two wide receiver and proved it with a huge game against the Jets in which he scored 25 fantasy points. The Steelers receiver has a ton of value moving forward and should be added in all fantasy leagues.

3. Jeremy Kerley (8% Ownership ESPN).

Kerley is the 49ers best wide receiver and has proved it with two solid performances against the Cardinals and Cowboys in which he scored a total of 30 fantasy points. Now Kerley will get to play against a Buffalo Bills team that is particularly vulnerable to the intermediate type passes that hecatches.

Start Kerley if you are missing a wide receiver in week 6.

4. Titans D/ST. (5.9% Ownership ESPN)

Nobody owns the Titans defense, but week 6 is definitely the week to place them into your starting lineup. The Titans will get to play at home against a quarterback who will either be Charlie Whitehurst or someone with similar skills to Whitehurst.

That places this fantasy unit firmly within the top 10 defenses this week and should earn them a spot in your fantasy lineup for week 6.

5. Jalen Richard (19.4% Ownership ESPN)

The Raiders backfield splits touches fairly evenly and Richard was a beneficiary on Sunday. Richard ran for more than 30 yards on six carries and added more than 60 yards receiving for a total of nine fantasy points against the Chargers.

Richard's role as a pass catching back for the Raiders makes him an intriguing option moving forward and he should be added on the waiver wire in week 6.
