Waiver wire Wednesday: Week 5

Derek Carr owners should consider dropping him.  A 2-6 week diagnosis for a broken back seems like something that could linger.  There’s still a few options that could help carry you through the season.  Montgomery could b on the shelf wit broken ribs and there’s still a few tight end options to jump on in leagues.


Deshaun Watson

He’s throwing for yardage and TD’s.  Running for long gains and scores.  Now he has Will Fuller back.  Jump on Watson now.  He’s a rookie so there could b a couple bumps.  He shoud be a quality scorer at the Quarterback position

Jared Goff

Goff and the Rams offense has been a great story.  With a solid offensive line and a great running game Goff has been able to hit a bunch of targets in the passing game. Goff should remain a good option most weeks

Eli Manning

Manning had a big week 4 and should be at least a solid fill-in at home vs the Chargers if you need a stream starter this week.  Manning could be someone to hold onto with all the weapons he has.


Latavius Murray

Murray was signed to a nice contract in the offseason.  He’s been hurt coming into the year and Cook is now off the field.  Murray has always been a scorer and thrusts right into a high RB2 role.  Jerick McKinnon will have chances to produce but will remain a bench depth / flex option.

Aaron Jones

Ty Montgomery has broken ribs.  But it sounds like he wont be out long Grab jones as a handcuff or a short term option.


Wide Receivers

Will Fuller

Fuller is back from injury and is a solid RB3.  He has kick return ability wich is an added bonus if your league counts that.  With Watson getting better every week and Deandre Hopkins getting a lot of attention you should jump on Fuller if he remains unowned.

Tight Ends

Charles Clay

Other than McCoy Clay has been Taylor’s favorite target.  He’s scored 2 touchdowns and went over 100 yards in week 4.

Cameron Brate

Brate is still available in leagues and should be owned and played.  He’s scored in 2 of the 3 games this season.

Evan Engram

Engram has been a consistent 9-10 points a week.  His role should only grow in new York.
