D.J. Chark was a top-5 WR in Week 5 and remains in the top 20 for Week 6
Week 5 was a great one for some fantasy owners, especially those who started Will Fuller, Amari Cooper, Michael Thomas or D.J. Chark. Adam Thielen had a bounce-back week and Chris Godwin stole all the points from Mike Evans in Tampa Bay. It was time for DeAndre Hopkins to have another big week, but unfortunately, that went to Fuller. In Week 6, it seems that it should be time for Mike Evans to bounce back (look at what happened with Thielen from Week 4 to Week 5). He's ranked No. 10 this week — don't be afraid to start him.
When it comes to checking the waiver wire, see if guys like Michael Gallup (available in about 30 percent of Yahoo! leagues), Chark (25 percent) or Courtland Sutton (25 percent) are available. These players have shown that they are viable fantasy starters each week. There weren't a lot of wide receiver injuries in Week 5, so just prepare for the bye weeks and start the best players.
Teams on bye: Buffalo, Chicago, Indianapolis, Oakland
