Waiver Wire Express - Week 5 Lightning Round

A quarter of the fantasy football season is over. That means no more waiting around to make important decisions about the state of your roster. The short bye weeks continue, as the Lions and Dolphins will be out of action, neither of which should alter the state of the waiver wire much. That said, here is our instant analysis on free agents to add with the waiver wire lightning round for Week 5.

This column is published early every week and then updated on a daily basis. Each day will also yield more in-depth waiver wire analysis for all positions.

Waiver pickups are listed in priority order and broken down by position. Players must be owned in roughly less than 60% of Yahoo leagues and therefore will range from shallow options in standard leagues to deep options in PPR formats.
