Fantasy football waiver wire: Five WRs to target for Week 6

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

Need a replacement for Julio Jones or Mike Wallace this week? We're here to help. Here are five receivers worth picking off the waiver wire in Week 6.

Only two teams are on bye this week, but those teams have some fairly big fantasy pieces. The Atlanta Falcons are off, which means owners will be forced to sit Julio Jones and Roddy White this week. Jones has been a monster this season, leading the league in receiving yards through the first four games. White has been a major disappointment so far, but the bye will finally give him a week to rest his sprained ankle. He's a solid buy-low candidate.

Wallace remains a boom-or-bust player as he struggles to get on the same page with Ryan Tannehill. Week 5 was one of his better days, securing seven catches for 105 yards. He still has just one touchdown on the season and hasn't done enough to justify his mammoth contract yet, which keeps him no more than a WR3.

Aside from those two teams, there are the usual litany of injuries for fantasy owners to deal with. Here are five wide receivers that may be available in your league that could help out as we get into the real meat of the fantasy football season. All data is from Yahoo! leagues.

Rueben Randle, New York Giants (owned in 38 percent of leagues)

If David Wilson is unable to play against the Bears on Thursday night, the Giants could open up the passing game even more. That should create plenty of targets for Randle, who feasted on the Eagles with 96 yards and two touchdowns. He could find more opportunities with Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz occupied by Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings this week.

Percy Harvin, Seattle Seahawks (owned in 32 percent of leagues)

Obviously Harvin is just a roster stash until further notice, but he remains bullish about his recovery and is back in Seattle after rehabbing in New York. He is eligible to come off the PUP list after Week 7, at which point we should have a more concrete timetable on his return. He will be an instant difference maker in Seattle's offense when he does finally come back.

Marlon Brown, Baltimore Ravens (owned in 24 percent of leagues)

Brown missed Week 5 with a hamstring injury, but he's expected to return to practice this week. Not much more than a WR4 even with Jacoby Jones out, but Brown has secured three touchdowns this season and is a big red zone target for Joe Flacco. Baltimore is desperate for receiving help, so Brown could remain a part of the offense even when Jones comes back.

Kendall Wright, Tennessee Titans (owned in 23 percent of leagues)

All Wright does is catch passes, which limits his yards but should keep PPR owners happy. Wright leads the team with 26 receptions through the first five games. The Titans are reducing Kenny Britt's role in the offense, leaving Wright as one of Ryan Fitzpatrick's top options. Playing out of the slot, he has a sneaky matchup against a Seahawks defense that got roasted by T.Y. Hilton. Wright is firmly on the WR3 radar going forward.

Terrance Williams, Dallas Cowboys (owned in 17 percent of leagues)

After a rough start to his career, the rookie out of Baylor is making the most of Miles Austin's absence. His season highlight so far came against the Broncos, racking up 151 yards and a touchdown on four catches, including a monster 82-yard catch-and-run. He also gets the Redskins, Eagles and Lions over the next three weeks. Fantasy owners should give him serious consideration even when Austin gets healthy again.
