Offensive Deep League Gems — Week 5
One-quarter of the NFL season is in the books, which means we are more than a quarter-way through the fantasy football season. For those fantasy general managers with one or no losses on the year, congratulations: You drafted well, navigated the waiver wire astutely and sat and started the right players. This is hard enough in standard 10- or 12-team leagues, but if you did this in a deep league—one that fields 14, 16, 18 or (bless you) more teams, you deserve an extra pat on the back.
But if you’re a deep league GM who is still looking for the right combination of players at the right time, all while trying to circumvent whatever troubles bye weeks pose, the waiver wire is a very special place for you this week. Here are four waiver-wire pickups, particularly geared to those in deeper leagues, worth picking up and playing in Week 5 or at least stashing for later use.
