Top Waiver Wire Receivers Week 6

Lesley Tedeschi Oct 10th 12:08 PM EDT.

After a gruesome Week 5 for wide receivers, Week 6 brings plenty of new pick ups to the table. The New York Giants will probably be the team with the most pick-up potential. With Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall out for the season, now is the time to grab a new receiver.

Roger Lewis, New York Giants | 1% OWN

The Giants had to call on receiver Roger Lewis last week once their receiving corp was destroyed. Lewis managed to score a touchdown with hauling in 1 of 2 targets for 29 yards. These numbers aren't going to win you a game, but moving forward he will be involved a lot more. Manning and the Giants play the Denver Broncos this week so Lewis will be the main target. Moving forward he has a lot of potential for the rest of the season.

Devin Funchess, Carolina Panthers | 83% OWN

Devin Funchess is owned in a decent amount of leagues after 5 weeks, but is still available. Funchess is leading in targets over Kelvin Benjamin which is a good sign moving forward. The loss of Greg Olsen has allowed Funchess to grow into a larger role for the Panthers. Week 5 he had 53 yards and a touchdown. If Funchess is available in your league grab him!

Mike Williams , Los Angeles Chargers | 16% OWN

Rookie Mike Williams will make his NFL debut this week against the Oakland Raiders. Williams was the first round pick for the Chargers, so big things are expected. He hasn't played this season due to a disc injury in his back, but has been cleared to play. Picking up a rookie can leave you with an uneasy feeling, especially when you don't know if he's starting the game. The Chargers might just throw him right in to get his feet wet and see what happens. If you have room on your bench or a spot for him due to a bye week, he is worth the chance.

Ricardo Louis, Cleveland Browns | 1% OWN

The Cleveland Browns are without Kenny Britt, and Ricardo Louis seems to be the only bright spot in their offense. Louis has caught 10 of 16 targets for 135 yards in the last 2 weeks. Louis is fighting a tough battle with the Browns, who still can't seem to put things together. However if you are in need of a receiver to get through the next couple of weeks he is sure to continue his streak of hauling in targets. Add a touchdown to his stats and that might make missing one of your starting receivers that much easier.

It's hard to believe Week 6 is here! This time in the season is tough with injuries and bye weeks, your team might be struggling more than you'd like. These receivers might not be your dream players but they should help your team for a week or more!
