Well we are (nearly) done with another week of 2022 action, so time to finetune your roster with our Week 6 Waiver Wire pickups. Making the right moves on the waiver wire is how you can really win your league. Getting those upside depth pieces, and cutting the players that are going to struggle from your roster is going to help you going forwards
We now have to start dealing with bye weeks too. Because when your roster is already struggling with injury, why not?
Teams on bye this week:
- Detroit Lions
- Houston Texans
- Las Vegas Raiders
- Tennessee Titans
Rules for Selection & Order Priority
For a player to be considered to be added, they have to:
- Have an rostered % of 50% or under on ESPN
- Players below are listed by their roster %, not priority. Know your league settings. If there is a high-priority add, you’ll know.
Carson Wentz (WAS) @CHI 47.7% rostered
Wentz has been a decent QB to start the season, albeit with two games where he has struggled. Overall though, he stats are great- 3 games with over 300 yards and multiple scores through the air. With the receiving weapons he has, he is a decent option for fantasy owners if needed.
Geno Smith (SEA) v ARI 32.2% rostered
Let Smith cook. Who knew that it was Russell Wilson holding the offense back? I’m only joking, but Smith has been great after struggling to start the season. In his last 3 games he has thrown the ball for 913 yards, 7 TDs and a single INT. With him growing his rapport with both Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, things look good for him moving forward.
Others to Consider
- Marcus Mariota (ATL) v SF 18.0% rostered
- Jimmy Garoppolo (SF) @ATL 11.2% rostered
