Week 6 TE Waiver Pickups & Adds: Fantasy Football FAAB Bids, % Owned

Looking to prepare early for your fantasy football draft this season??? We have you covered with the lineups.com official fantasy football rankings. You can also find all fantasy football stats,DFS projections, and fantasy football projections on our site. Don’t be the unprepared guy in your league.

Chris Herndon is a name to keep an eye on, but not listed in the article given the hamstring injury that popped up as he was about return. There also was not a guarantee for him to jump back into the offense at full force, so the addition of the injury just makes him a cautious watch. Overall it is a lackluster position to be diving into as most names are picked up, injured, or just in bad offenses that can’t fulfill having fantasy viable tight ends. To win those  fantasy football leagues, you are going to have to win the waiver wire as well. You can find the top tight ends to pick up by rank for this upcoming week.

TJ Hockenson – Detroit Lions

It seemed TJ Hockenson was on his way to a bigger day against the Chiefs before the Bye Week, which was a favorable matchup for him. At this point in the season, tight ends are about all in the same boat. They are single digit floor options, and not in a good way, but do have the potential to go off. We are taking shots on guys who can hit that 10+ fantasy point mark more often than the others. Hockenson is one of them. He is working his way back from a concussion and has had plenty of time to do so. While he has the questionable tag, he is expected to play against Green Bay.

Hunter Henry – Los Angeles Chargers

Hunter Henry was a name to keep an eye on last week, and now he is a stash play as he is back at practice. It is unlikely that he plays against the Steelers, but the Titans looks more optimal at the moment. Henry was obviously sought after tight end in drafts, and the injury caused a lot of people to drop him. He has worked his way back, and now is looking healthy for now. Getting full week and a half of practice in before his next game is a lot more ideal than suiting up for Week 6.

Jimmy Graham – Green Bay Packers

Jimmy Graham is floating around in about 40% of leagues right now, and is a fill-in if needed. He had just three targets in Week 5, but the rushing attack carried most of the offense against Dallas. Graham has been up and down in terms of targets per game, but that goes for most of the group left on the waiver wire. The plus side is that Graham has some favorable opponents over the next few weeks, as they will face Detroit, Oakland and Kansas City.

Gerald Everett – Los Angeles Rams

19 targets ver the last three weeks has had a lot to do with the heavy passing attack, but overall he has been tremendous when given volume. While I would temper expectations moving forward, the heavy throwing Rams should be able to sustain plenty of value for Everett moving forward. He is worth a grab, and is available in over 50% of leagues.
