Coming into Week 6 we can point to a few injury scenarios where guys will see a tick upwards in targets. At this point in the season we want to be on the lookout for guys getting targets. Finding receivers on teams with bad defenses is also a way to look at things, which is why a name like Mohamed Sanu kicks us off. We also have to deal with bad quarterback play, as injuries continue to derail the position here in 2019. Injuries and byes are piling up, and to win those fantasy football leagues, you are going to have to win the waiver wire as well. You can find the top wide receivers to pick up by rank for this upcoming week.

Mohamed Sanu – Atlanta Falcons

Mohamed Sanu is less than 50% owned, but is the highest owned out of this group here. There might be some names like Dede Westbrook, DK Metcalf, and John Brown floating around your waiver wire, which those names would have the obvious priority if they are out there. However, Sanu is on a pass happy Atlanta offense, and they will be trailing given the poor defensive play. The downside to Sanu is that there are plenty of pass-catchers in the offense that have a strong target share. Sanu is still seeing a solid about though, as he has five or more in all five weeks so far this season. He also has 5+ catches in four of the first five weeks. Sanu is worth a grab.

Diontae Johnson – Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh’s offense is going through a lot, after already losing two quarterbacks. Mason Rudolph will be back, but he took a pretty good shot in the Baltimore game resulting in a major concussion. Diontae Johnson has stepped into a Pittsburgh role that many thought Donte Moncrief or James Washington would be in. Their targets have been inconsistent, and of course Moncrief isn’t even seeing the field. Johnson was raved about coming out of the draft, and it seems Pittsburgh are once again drafting great wideouts in the latter stages of drafts. Johnson has seen 20 targets since entering the starting lineup, and already has two touchdowns on the year. There is still going to be some week to week volatility, but the volume should remain consistent.

Auden Tate – Cincinnati Bengals

John Ross is going to miss time, and while AJ Green is on his way back at some point, the trade rumors are flying. Tyler Boyd benefits from this all too, but Auden Tate is a 22-year-old wideout out of Florida State who has some upside moving forward. He is a big wideout and is very athletic. Tate has become more involved in the offense over the last three weeks, seeing 22 targets. He has caught 13 of them, and has 164 yards and a touchdown in that span. Tate is a longer term pick up, so value him well. With a growing target share and an offense that is forced to throw a ton, Tate is going to be a strong play most weeks as a fill-in or WR3 option.

Preston Williams – Miami Dolphins

I am going to bang the Preston Williams drum again here after the Bye Week. Thankfully Miami was on bye, which gave us a break from one of the worst teams in the league. The one positive from this group is that Williams continues to emerge as a threat in the offense. His targets over the first four weeks are 5, 6, 12, and 7. He has 11, 10, 10, and 8 PPR points in that span, and has yet to put together the big game. The plus side is that he has volume coming his way, and game scripts will be perfect for him as the Dolphins will continue to play from behind. Williams is a deep league guy to consider, or as the byes get heavier over the next few weeks.

Cole Beasley – Buffalo Bills

Cole Beasley had a down week against the Titans, but that was to be expected. That was going to be a low scoring game with minimal upside for fantasy wide receivers. Beasley has still been a check down option for Josh Allen, and while his touchdown upside is minimal, he is going to rack up catches. He is on pace for over 80 catches and 850 yards this season, which would be a strong PPR number. The Bills also have some friendly secondaries like Miami twice, Philadelphia, and Washington over the next few weeks.

KeeSean Johnson – Arizona Cardinals

It seems that Christian kirk has avoided the major injury, but is still going to be down and out for a bit. The Cardinals will also be without Damiere Byrd, which puts KeeSean Johnson in line for some snaps and targets. We saw him on Cincinnati get a lot of major run, and saw seven targets. The Arizona offense certainly didn’t click like we hoped against a Bengals defense. They have another enticing matchup against the Falcons, but this game will be at home. Johnson is a rookie that was buried on the depth chart, but has a chance to establish himself over the next few weeks.
