Waiver Wire Express - Week 6 Lightning Round

The scoreboards are lighting up all over the league. While star players did most of the damage this past week, there are always some unexpected names that emerge as well. Before we wrap up with Sunday night action, here is our instant analysis on free agents to add with the waiver wire lightning round for Week 6.

This column is published early every week and then updated on a daily basis based on injury information, depth chart changes, and any other relevant information that might inform your waiver decisions.

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