Fantasy Football Pickups for Week 6

With 6 team on a bye week, are you in need of some assistance on who to pickup to help bolster your roster? Here are some players who we think can make a positive impact on your fantasy squad, who are still available in most leagues.

Must Haves
Ed Dickson (TE) - He is just 15% owned in Yahoo leagues, most likely because of their BYE week last week.  Scoop him up and start him every week for the rest of the season.  He is first on the team with 32 targets!

Solid Pickups
Ryan Torain (RB) - A weak Eagles secondary could mean big games for all 3 Redskins RBs.  Torain only played in week 4(19 carries for 135 yards) and they had a BYE last week, so many owners do not know he is even available.  Scoop him up and reap the benefits.

Earnest Graham (RB) - With no LeGarrette Blount this week, Graham will handle the rock more than any RB on the Bucs roster.  He has been a favorite target of QB Josh Freeman in the passing game as well, catching 23 balls this season.

Good For A Week
Andy Dalton (QB) - He has been impressive and trusts all of his receivers.  A matchup against a weak Colts secondary should give Dalton some nice numbers replacing your starting QB.

Dane Sanzenbacher (WR) - A matchup with the Vikings should allow for some quick passes to the Shifty receiver.  A solid BYE week option in PPR.

Players to Watch
Tim Tebow (QB) - Now the official starter in Denver, Tebow is probably gone in your leaugue.  However, with a BYE week, he just might be available.  If you have a roster spot, and your QB has not had his BYE week yet, I suggest giving him a chance.  His numbers will never be Aaron Rodgers, but he will score TDs.

Jackie Battle (RB) - Is the Dexter McCluster experiment over in KC?  Battle took 19 carries 116 yards in Week 5 while McCluster only saw 4 carries go 8 yards.  Keep an eye on the RB situation in KC.
