Waiver Wire Watch: Week 5

Week 4 brought us plenty of unhelpful touchdowns in fantasy, but it also brought some helpful relief on the waiver wire. Tight end might have some budding new stars who are widely available, while there are some intriguing and potentially valuable options at running back. Take a look at all of it below. Hopefully your season isn’t in dire 0-4 straits yet, because while help is on the way this week, there doesn’t appear to be a season savior among this group.

Recommendations are based on a PPR-scoring, four-point passing touchdown, 12-team league, with roster percentages coming from Yahoo. Free agent budget recommendations are based on a standard $100 budget for the season. I try to mention when a player is a better streaming play (short-term/one-week starter) versus a long-term addition. Lastly, the great John Paulsen will edit this article every week and adjust rankings (and prices, starting next week), if necessary. Essentially, you’re getting two minds collaborating on this piece instead of one, so lucky you.
