Fantasy Football Week 6 Waiver Wire: Tebow, Battle Lead The Way

Earlier today, we took a look at the Top 10 adds according to experts around the Internet. Now, we'll look at some add candidates and some trade/drop guys according to the computer over at another partner of ours, numberFire.com. They have a big-brained computer stuffed full of stats, and below are guys that are either performing well above average, or have been under-performing.

Adds

Pierre Garcon has been tearing it up for the past two weeks. Last week in this space we gave a recommendation to get him. If, by chance, he's still hanging around in your league, by all means grab him. Tim Tebow is another guy who is on the list since being named a starter. His numbers were up almost 60% last week after getting time in the fourth quarter of the game, and making the most of it. And, of course, everyone is looking at Jackie Battle at running back.

How about a few others? Jason Avant in Philly, Early Doucet in Arizona, and Jason Hill in Jacksonville are among a group of receivers that are available in many leagues and could be worth a look.

9 Jason Hill (WR, JAX) vs. PIT +35.07%
10 Ben Obomanu (WR, SEA) BYE +33.22%

 

On the downside of things, Knowshon Moreno has been relegated to a minor role in Denver with Willis McGahee eating up the carries. Moreno is a threat in the passing game though, and Tebow might need to use his running backs in the passing game more than Orton. This week's darling, Jackie Battle, might be the end for Thomas Jones, who has done little with the opportunity he was handed. And the explosive Percy Harvin is still laboring in the Vikings offense, performing well below expectations.
