Fantasy Football Update 10/10/16: Week 6 Waiver Wire Picks
Fantasy Football Sleepers and Waiver Wire Picks for Week 6
October 10, 2016
With Week 5 in the NFL almost finished up, it’s time to head to the fantasy football waiver wire and see what’s cooking for Week 6. We’ve got a fresh batch of trending names for you this morning, so let’s visit some of the more popular adds out there right now.
Cameron Meredith, WR, Chicago Bears: Meredith came out of his shell Sunday against the Colts, getting nine catches on 12 targets for 130 yards and a touchdown.

Meredith was a feature player thanks to Kevin White being out and Alshon Jeffery being banged up. He’s a good route-runner, though, and will be a red-zone option against Jacksonville next week.
Tennessee Titans Defense: For those fantasy owners stringing defenses, Tennessee will be the one to have for Week 6. They’re going off a nice showing against Miami, holding the Fish to 17 points with six sacks and two interceptions.
That gives the Titans two weeks this year with double-digit fantasy points. The icing on the cake here is that Tennessee will get the Browns at home this weekend.
Jeremy Kerley, WR, San Francisco 49ers: We’ve talked about Kerley a little bit over the weekend, and he should definitely be a contender for a waiver wire pickup this week. He’s coming off 13 targets, eight receptions, 102 yards and a TD in Week 5.
Kelley has now put up two straight weeks of at least 14.8 fantasy points, and has received 22 targets in that time. He’s a big factor heading into Buffalo this weekend.
James Starks, RB, Green Bay Packers: Eddie Lacy owners should listen up here. Starks took the workload after Lacy (ankle) went down on Sunday night, but wasn’t able to do much with his carries.
Starks put up a paltry 2.8 YPC average (12 for 33 yards) and looked like he was running through molasses against the Giants defense. He’s just an emergency add for those who have Starks, or those who are scraping the bottom of the RB barrel.
Devontae Booker, RB, Denver Broncos: Over the past couple of weeks, Booker has increased his role in the Denver offense. On Sunday, he put up six rushes for 23 yards and four catches for 36 yards.
Booker’s touches were only four fewer than starter CJ Anderson. Though Anderson is still the unchallenged No. 1, expect Booker to keep chipping away at the workload.
