Waiver Wire—Week 5
Nic Shimonek, QB-Texas Tech
Shimonek passed for 271 yards and four touchdowns in relief of injured starter Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes is believed to have suffered a shoulder sprain and could miss up to 3-4 weeks.
Jarvion Franklin, RB-Western Michigan
Starting running back Jamauri Bogan suffered an ankle injury early in the Broncos’ game at Central Michigan and the severity of Bogan’s injury is still unknown, so adding Franklin early in the week is advisable.
Justice Hill, RB-Oklahoma State
Hill has carried the ball at least 20 times, topped 100 yards, and scored a touchdown in back-to-back games, and now it seems we finally have a primary ball carrier in the Cowboys’ backfield.
Zamore Zigler, RB-San Jose State
After two consecutive 100-yard games, Zigler rushed for 91 yards and a score Saturday against New Mexico and the freshman is showing more promise than teammate Deontae Cooper.
Robert Davis, WR-Georgia State
It was reported on Saturday that Penn Hart was lost for the season due to a foot fracture, which means that Davis becomes the Panthers’ top receiving threat.
Marcus Green, WR-UL Monroe
Green has scored in three of the Warhawks’ first four games and the UL-Monroe schedule is about to get a lot more manageable.
Riley McCarron, WR-Iowa
Starting receiver Matt Vandeberg was lost for the season to a foot injury and McCarron stepped up on Saturday, catching eight passes for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Hawkeyes’ 38-31 loss to Northwestern.
Shun Brown, WR-Arizona
Given the attrition the Wildcats have had on offense this season, Brown has been steady, catching 16 passes for 256 yards and two touchdowns in the past three games.
Demetris Robertson, WR-California
Robertson has now caught a touchdown pass in three of the Bears’ last four games and has eight receptions for 200 yards and four touchdowns in the past two games.
Allenzae Staggers, WR-Southern Mississippi
There was a reason why we had Staggers ranked as our highest Southern Miss receiver in Week 5, but little did we know that he would explode for 292 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday’s win over Rice.
