As always, watch out for these bye teams this week.  Adjust your roster accordingly.

NFL Week 5 Injuries:

  • Cody Kessler – poor Browns, left game did not return
  • Eddie Lacy – left game did not return
  • Jeremy Hill – left game did not return, expects to practice this week
  • Steve Smith Jr. – left game did not return
  • Eric Ebron will be out multiple weeks
  • Cam Newton is back practicing this week
  • Dez Bryant likely out again this week
  • Blaine Gabbert demoted, Kappy to start this week

Week 6 Waiver Wire Watchlist:

top on the list probably Meredith, Booker, and Rodgers

QB

  • Pick up Kaepernick if you’re desperate for a new QB
  • Mariota a solid bye week replacement

WR

  • Jeremy Kerley continues to impress, where was this when he was on the Jets
  • Chris Hogan getting love from Brady
  • Cameron Meredith getting tons of targets with Jeffery playing hurt and White out
  • Adam Thielen 7 Rec 127 yds 1 TD
  • Sammie Coates monster game

RB

  • Jordan Howard becoming a star, no chance he’s still on waiver this week right?
  • Asiata definitely worth a look, he was the goalline back last year.
  • Devontae Booker was a preseason sleeper, starting to get some touches
  • Time for the annual James Starks auction with Lacy hurt
  • Bobby Rainey another solid week
  • Jacquizz Rodgers took advantage of the injury situation at TB for sure

TE

  • Hunter Henry scored a TD even with Gates back
