Waiver Wire--Week 6
Justin Herbert, QB-Oregon
Herbert starting against the Huskies was probably the worst kept secret leading up to the games in Week 6, but some fantasy owners may have passed on the freshman because of the matchup. It’s not certain if Herbert is the answer for the Ducks at quarterback, but he will at least add another option at quarterback.
Nick Holley, QB-Kent State
Holley was likely added last week in leagues that allow owners to use him as a WR, but in leagues that utilize position overrides, Holley still must be considered because of his rushing ability. In the last two games, Holley has rushed for 341 yards and has accounted for seven touchdowns.
Ronald Jones, RB-USC
Justin Davis reportedly left Saturday’s game against Colorado with a high-ankle sprain, and if that diagnosis is accurate, Jones could get the majority of carries in the Trojans’ backfield over the next couple of weeks.
Cade Carney, RB-Wake Forest
After missing two games to injury, Carney returned and topped the 100-yard mark for the second time this season. Carney’s addition should be viewed as a long-term play because the Demon Deacons play Florida State this week and have a bye in Week 8.
James Gilbert, RB-Ball State
In the past two weeks, Gilbert has rushed for 260 yards and has scored five touchdowns, and he could be a valuable addition as the Cardinals head into the heart of their MAC schedule.
Gerald Holmes, RB-Michigan State
The 2-3 Spartans are trying to find the right mix on both sides of the ball and Holmes has looked better than teammate LJ Scott.
Jared Cornelius, WR-Arkansas
After catching three passes for 30 yards in the Razorbacks’ first two games of 2016, Cornelius has hauled in 16 passes for 378 yards and three touchdowns over the past three weeks.
Dylan Cantrell, WR-Texas Tech
Cantrell may not be a top fantasy option at receiver, but he’s certainly been consistent, catching at least five passes and totaling 70 yards or more in each of the past three games. The 6-3 senior receiver has caught a TD pass in four out of five games this season.
