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:
- Kansas City Chiefs
- Los Angeles Chargers
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.
Daniel Jones (NYG) @SEA 28.7% rostered
I need someone to explain to me what is happening this season. The Giants have put together a string of good performances and victories. This has mainly been off the back of star RB Saquon Barkley, but Jones has been doing his part too. Despite having a number of receivers out with injury, Jones has been able to get the ball downfield & in the endzone. Next up is a Seattle defense that has struggled at times.
Jameis Winston/ Andy Dalton (NO) v LV 13.1/ 1.9% rostered
The Saints offense is finding a way to move the ball, despite the team down to the bare bones at receiver. Winston could return to the lineup soon, as he was seen in the week throwing the ball. If he doesn’t return then Dalton is a fine add for this week. The Raiders secondary has given up plenty through the air, including against Davis Mills this past week (who threw for 302 yards, 2 TDs with 1 INT).
Mac Jones (NE) @NYJ 7.5% rostered
Jones is set to return to action, it could even be tonight (Monday). The Jets defense has been performing well, but the Patriots offense has allowed Jones to have some ok not great performances. If you are desperate for an option this week, Jones could be it- but I mean desperate.
Others to Consider
- Matt Ryan (IND) v WAS 47.4% rostered
- Davis Mills (HOU) v TEN 2.8% rostered
