Waiver Wire Targets Week 6


Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Rodgers is here only for Charles Sims owners that are in panic-mode over his injury status heading into Monday night and beyond. If Sims and Martin don’t return anytime soon Rodgers and rookie Peyton Barber are the only other running backs on the Bucs roster. Rodgers has a bye in Week 6, though, so he’s potentially only viable as a one-week, volume-based fill-in for Sims.

Sammie Coates, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers

Pending an explosion monday night, he’ll finish as Week 5’s top scoring wide receiver thanks to 139 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Of course, Coates cannot sustain this play every week … or even in the same game, as he dropped several passes against the Jets (including a third touchdown). Nevertheless, the way teams scheme against the Steelers is to stop Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell, meaning Coates will continue to see favorable matchups. He’s a boom-or-bust play, but his ceiling is worth chasing with the Steelers offense heating up. Coates has caught a 40-plus yard reception in each game so far this year and faces a Dolphins defense that has allowed 871 yards to opposing receivers.



Martellus Bennett,TE, New England Patriots

If Martellus Bennett is still available go scoop him up. Bennett Had 6 catches (on eight targets) for 67 yards and 3 touchdowns. Bennett can no longer be considered the same go-to man in the middle that topped 100 yards twice while Gronkowski was sidelined, but Sunday’s results proved that he doesn’t have to be. Even with competition for looks from Gronkowski, Bennett is a more dependable option than the No. 1 starter on many other teams. Also teams will definitely look to gameplan on Gronkowski which could open up Martellus Bennett to have a monster rest of the year.


Jeremy Kerley, WR, San Francisco 49ers

Believe it or not, Kerley is the No. 1 wide receiver for the 49ers and a player who should be added in fantasy.. While the 49ers passing offense isn’t anything special, Kerley’s 30 percent share of the targets cannot be ignored. He’s posted stat lines of 6 catches 88 yards and a touchdown and 8 catches 102 yards and a touchdown in the last two weeks. It’ll be worth monitoring if Kerley’s target share changes if Colin Kaepernick gets the start, but for now he looks like a solid flex play at least. He faces the Buffalo Bills next week.


Marcus Mariota,QB, Tennessee Titans

Mariota is still available in most leagues and draws a fantastic fantasy matchup next week when the Browns travel to Tennessee. Cleveland averages 288.4 passing yards allowed per game thus far, and has conceded 13 passing touchdowns. Mariota is coming off his best fantasy game of the year after picking apart the Dolphins poor secondary. Mariota is an excellent quarterback for Week 6, and a solid play in daily formats.
