Fantasy

Ortiz’s Waiver Wire: Week 6

Quarterbacks:

Brian Hoyer: In three games as a starter Hoyer has thrown for 1,029 yards and six touchdowns and during that three week span, he’s the third ranked quarterback. I honestly never thought that I would say this, but Brian Hoyer is a must-own fantasy quarterback.

Tony Romo: He’s less than 10 percent owned in ESPN leagues. Yes, Dak Prescott is playing phenomenal but owner Jerry Jones isn’t giving up on his $100,000 million quarterback just yet. And yes Romo got injured again but to have the opportunity to acquire a top 10 fantasy quarterback at this point in the season, Romo is a must add.

Running Backs:

DeAndre Washington: Now while he should’ve been added last week, he’s still available in just about 50 percent of fantasy leagues. Latavius Murray is still injured with a turf toe injury which is a pretty serious injury and feel free to google it if you don’t believe me. With that being said the Oakland Raiders have the second best offensive-line in football which is why a Raider running back has to be owned.

Theo Riddick: View him as a third-down back or someone who just catches balls out of the backfield. But the truth is; Riddick is the lead back in Detroit and it’s going to stay that way. On the season he has 171 yards rushing and one touchdown and has 26 receptions for 190 yards and three touchdowns.

Wide Receivers: 

Cameron Meredith: Kevin White is out for another season, Alshon Jeffery is banged up and the Bears are playing with their second-string quarterback who’s playing insanely well. You add all of that up and you get Cameron Meredith, a 12 target, 9 receptions for 130 yards and a touchdown this past Sunday. Now more than likely he’s not going to do that every game, but the point I’m trying to make is he’s going to be a solid factor in the Bears offense. Another key thing to add to is Hoyer spent the entire pre-season and practices with Meredith so the two have chemistry.

Tyrell Williams: The Chargers have had a ton of key injuries this season and Williams as a result has thrived because of them. 21 receptions, 358 yards and two touchdowns. And he’s also hot right now as he’s coming off of 117 yard performance.

Sammie Coates: For some reason this guy is still available in almost 40 percent of leagues. Why? I don’t know. But if you’re one of the lucky 40 percent, then please pick him up. In his past two games, 12 receptions, 218 yards and two touchdowns.

Tight Ends:

Charles Clay: With Sammy Watkins out for the year and the Bills are still trying to fill that void. So who will that be? Well it could very well be Clay. 12 targets, 10 catches and 120 yards in two games.

Hunter Henry: A lot of owners dropped him with Antonio Gates returning to the lineup. But the truth is, don’t be concerned. Gates is at the end of his career and it honestly looks like he’s running in quick sand. Rather you like it or not Henry is the future. 16 targets, 12 receptions, 207 yards and two touchdowns in his last three games.
