In this edition of Win the Waiver Wire, Curtis Patrick shares his top waiver targets for Week 6 in seasonal fantasy football leagues.

Whether by injury, snap count, or role, every fantasy owner can look at their squad and identify a player who disappointed relative to expectations in Week 5. We’ve also entered bye-week season, which means waiver activity will carry greater importance for most fantasy players moving forward.

Bye weeks to cover: New Orleans Saints, Las Vegas Raiders, Seattle Seahawks

*For the purposes of this week’s article, I’ll be using ESPN “percentage rostered” data. Players are listed in the order of priority, by position. To make the most of my time and yours, I only provide analysis for players who are available in around 50% of leagues.

Quarterback

Andy Dalton (available in 99.8% of leagues)

FAAB: 3-5%

I usually don’t advocate for waiver bids on QBs larger than $1, but Dalton was just handed the keys to one of the most potent offenses in the league and the Cowboys’ awful defense ensures a strong weekly floor of opportunity. In limited work in relief of Dak Prescott in Week 5, Dalton completed 82% of his passes and led the team to a comeback victory.

Dalton was QB5 in points per game in 2013 and QB12 in points per game in 2015. The talent surrounding him now is better than he had in either of those seasons.

Dalton starts off with a hot first three weeks, facing the Cardinals, Football Team, and Eagles in Weeks 6-8. Among QBs with the most favorable schedules over the period, he’s the only one who doesn’t have a bye. I expect the Cowboys to make an even more conscious effort to feed Ezekiel Elliott as the feature piece of their offense now, but based on what we’ve seen, the defense is probably not going to cooperate. It’s within the range of possible outcomes that Dalton is a solid QB1 the rest of the season.

*In Superflex, bid as much as you can stomach. Leave yourself a few bucks if your league requires a minimum $1 bid, but in leagues with $0 bids or first-come-first-serve free agency following waivers, blow your stack.
