There’s not much to get excited about when it comes to Quarterback this week. The one must-add is CJ Stroud. He looks like a top-tier QB in the making. If he’s available, grab him ASAP. Josh Dobbs has put up some solid fantasy numbers and could be useful if you’re in a pinch. With Daniel Jones (neck) potentially missing time, Tyrod Taylor can help you in Superflex leagues.



Running Back is always a priority when looking through your waiver wire. This week is no different. Emari Demercado is the top running back claim this week, unless Jaleel McLaughlin or Justice Hill are available. James Conner could be heading to the IR, and Keontay Ingram isn't healthy either. With bye weeks starting, Demercado could definately help your team through the next several weeks.

Other running backs I'm targeting are Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, Jaylen Warren, and D'Onta Foreman. You can let everyone fight over McLaughlin and Demercado, and you go get some solid RBs that will contribute right away.

Another player I recommend grabbing now is Keaton Mitchell. He could be the starting running back in Baltimore a month from now. Low risk high reward.



There are several Wide Receivers that should help you moving forward. One of my favorite grabs is KJ Osborn. With Justin Jefferson missing multiple weeks. Osborn will give you instant value as a replacement. Josh Downs shouldn't be available, but if he is, go get him. Michael Wilson (ARZ) and Justin Watson (KC) are nice players to grab as well. They look to be their team's WR2 mving forward.

If Tee Higgins misses another week, Trenton Irwin should be added. He had 10 targets in Week 5. If Curtis Samuel is available, he's a must-add.



There's not many Tight Ends to get excited about. However, Logan Thomas has become a go-to guy in Washington. He had 11 targets on Thursday night. In an Eric Bieniemy offense, tight end has always been a priority. Another target of mine is Noah Fant. Fant isn't sexy, but has been productive, scoring over eight fantasy points in three staright games.
