Waiver Wire Express - Week 5 Lightning Round

We have officially passed the quarter pole of the 2018 season, and if you blinked then you missed it! Week 4 has seen the electric passing trend continue with quarterbacks shredding defenses at a never-before-seen rate, with pass-catching RBs and deeper WR plays seeing considerable action. In the interest of getting you the most timely information, consider this our waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 5.

This column is published early every week and then updated after the MNF game. Each day of the week will also yield other more in-depth waiver wire articles for all positions so be sure to check back.

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