With waivers about to open up, who are the players you should be looking to add?


Peyton Mullen

Cowboys receiver Michael Gallup picked up right where he left off in Week 6.

QB Teddy Bridgewater

First off, Bridgewater is only a temporary starter because the Saints are still Brees’ team. With that being said, his first few starts have been pretty rocky. But, in Week 5, Bridgewater went off against the Buccaneers with 314 passing yards, 4 touchdowns and only 1 interception. He could put up similar stats when the Saints visit the Jaguars, who could possibly be without Jalen Ramsey in Week 6.

RB Matt Breida

If for some reason Breida isn’t owned in your league, add him as fast as you can. He’s still behind Tevin Coleman on the depth chart, but that’s not going to stop Breida who has proven himself to the 49ers as a reliable running back. In Week 5, he proved this by rushing 11 times for 114 yards, finding the endzone twice, at home against the Browns. Breida will look to expose the Rams defense, who have been about average, in Week 6.

WR Michael Gallup

The second year receiver has proven to be the threat the Cowboy’s need on the opposite side of the field as Amari Cooper. He has 339 receiving yards on the season, with 113 of those coming last week, even though he missed Weeks 3 and 4 due to a knee injury. With Dak Prescott deciding that he needs to play like a top quarterback to receive the “top quarterback” paycheck he desires, both Cooper and Gallup will have more than enough opportunities in Week 6 against the Jets.

WR Auden Tate

With Green and Ross both out, Tate seems to be the #2 option for Andy Dalton with Tyler Boyd being #1. He only has 1-3 weeks to show the coaching staff what he can bring to the field, so expect him to try and prove himself so he can get more play time. He’s only had 164 yards and 1 touchdown through 3 weeks, but the Bengals take on the Ravens, who are allowing the 4th most passing yards per game in Week 6.

TE Gerald Everett

Everett and Tyler Higbee have been battling for playing time at tight end for the Rams, but Everett seems to be pulling away. He’s not only been getting more playing time, but he’s amassed 180 yards and 1 touchdown, with 136 of those coming against the Seahawks in Week 5 over the past two weeks. The Rams do have a tough game against a 49ers defense that’s allowed the 2nd least yards per game, but the Rams may have too many options for the 49ers to defend.

Honorable Mention: WR Dede Westbrook

Chark may have emerged as Minshew’s go-to receiver, but Westbrook is getting a lot of looks too. In fact, he and Chark have the same amount of targets, but Chark has had more catches and red-zone looks. Sooner rather than later, teams are going to notice this, which should open the door for Westbrook to have a breakout game. Nonetheless, Westbrook has been consistent this year and should continue this trend against the Saints in Week 6.
