Week 5 Waiver Wire

There aren’t a ton of big names this week.  I’d check last week to see if any of those guys are around first.

Bilal Powell 

Powell was on the field more on Sunday against the Seahawks than Forte. Powell had 6 receptions but 10 less carries than Forte.  He’s more of a PPR pickup at this point.  Runningbacks can thin out quickly so take a shot on Powell if you need an RB.

James White

Another PPR back.  White had 5 receptions for 50 yards against Buffalo.  Brandon Bolden hurt his leg and Tom Brady comes back this week. It seems like a good week to grab White. I don’t think he’ll ever be anything more than a flex.

Dion Lewis

Dion Lewis is still a few weeks from coming back.  If you have an IR spot, grab him and stash him.  If you have room on the bench you might want to consider grabbing him to.

Eddie Royal

Royal has been solid this year.  He seems to play well and disappear so be careful.  He’s averaging over 4 receptions a game.  Scored twice and has 241 yards on the year.  Kevin White hasn’t done anything to impress and Royal is the better own.

Seth Roberts

Roberts doesn’t get a lot of receptions but Carr has found him in the end zone 3 out of 4 games this year. With so much attention on Cooper and Crabtree, Roberts could find a bigger role heading forward. I’d only grab him in 14 team+ leagues
