Fantasy football waiver wire advice for Week 6 of the 2017 season. The parameters and assumptions of this weekly waiver wire advice column can be found in the preseason introduction.

Marlon Mack seems like an immediate buy in dynasty leagues, no?
I can't believe I dropped him when he was injured a couple of weeks ago. Ughhhh
Is there anyone on your list in which you would use the top waiver priority for?
I wish I used the top waiver priority on A A ron Jones instead of Lat Murray......

Both Smallwood, Ellington & Buck Allen are available. Assuming you can only pick up one, who would you grab?
I say you can only pick up one, because here is the rest of the roster. If you think someone else is droppable, let me know:
QB: Palmer (Streamer)
RB: David Johnson, Cohen, Riddick, Kamara, Henry, Coleman
WR: Diggs, Keenan, Cooper, Fuller, Funchess
TE: Reed, ASJ (dropping ASJ for one of the RBs)
Thanks in advance!

PPR? 1/2? standard? If 1/2 or full, I definitely like Ellington over Allen and Smallwood. His floor is really solid with all the targets he's getting.
Struggling with which of Allen and Smallwood I go after myself (in a 0.5 ppr). I think I like Allen better, as he's more likely to get goal line work over Smallwood. And I would drop Riddick for Allen, as he's not getting much work at all and requires an injury to Abdullah to be startable, whereas Allen or a healthy Smallwood can likely be started now. Even yesterday, when gameflow favored Riddick, he didn't put up many points. I've dropped Riddick in two different 0.5 ppr leagues.
@CKl, surprised not to see Breida on the list, given his workload on Sunday. What are your thoughts on him?
#5 By: CK, October 9th, 2017 17:38
Bsk, yeah mack is an immediate add. Not sure anyone warrants top waiver priority but Ellington and Jaron are close.
Awerky, Ellington for right now. Not dropping anyone else on your team. Good insights mateoloco.
Tbh i didn't think of breida. If we get a solid reason to doubt hyde or if you have roo, for stashing, then i like him.

Are we dropping anyone like Derrick Henry or Burkhead for any of these players?
#7 By: CK, October 9th, 2017 18:44
Im comfortable dropping burkhead. Henry is a hold though.
#8 By: Adam Eraky, October 9th, 2017 18:54
It is indeed PPR, @mateoloco & @CKl. Thank you both!

So I've found myself in a bit of a roster jam (12 team std 'home' league - lots of players who really shouldn't be rostered are).
RBs: Hunt, Ajayi, Coleman, Foreman, Allen, Jones, Gallman
McKinnon, Mack, and Breida, are available. Are Foreman or Gallman droppable for any of these three?
Not sure where to sit with Foreman - love his potential (mostly due to the RV prospect lab!)
and potential situation, but does his upside make him worth holding him over a possibly lower upside guy-more immediate production guy like Mack or Gallman, particularly given this roster isn't really hurting for RB production right now (especially if the Dolphins offense can sober up). Any advice would be appreciated!
If only I had these issues in money leagues
#10 By: CK, October 10th, 2017 09:11
If your team is winning and you're not in big need, I'd keep Foreman. Gallman and Mack are interchangeable in my opinion. I prefer Gallman to Breida. Not sure what to make of McKinnon. I think I'd prefer Foreman, but @FF_Contrarian may feel differently.
#11 By: Regression From the Mean, October 10th, 2017 09:22
NOW we know about Jerick McKinnon!

#13 By: Ed Haver, October 10th, 2017 10:21
After Charles Clay's injury, I need to pick up a tight end. Would you prefer Kittle to Njoku or Austin Hooper? And who would you drop between Jermaine Kearse or Frank Gore? Any help would be appreciated!
#14 By: CK, October 10th, 2017 10:37
ed1, let's ask @ndutton13 for some TE input but I think I would prefer Kittle. For the drop question, I'd lean Gore.
#15 By: Trevor.Moran, October 10th, 2017 10:47
Buck Allen and smallwood are on my wavier wire. Along with both j browns, e. Mcguire and marquise Lee. Who would be the best pickup?
#16 By: CK, October 10th, 2017 11:05
buck allen and jaron brown i think.
#17 By: jesseross99, October 10th, 2017 12:58
Great stuff. Love the Travis Rudolph pull.
Another guy at the edges of relevance - Tre McBride. He's already starting for the Bears (as their second outside WR) and Wheaton might just suck. Last night, McBride had one big catch wiped out by penalty, and another deep shot that he just missed on. He has the athleticism and college dominator rating profile to make a difference. Obviously only in VERY deep leagues, but I think he's worth a stash.
Edit: a bit more info on McBride...http://rotoviz.com/2015/02/tre-mcbride-cheap-dynasty-crush/
Edit x2: Markus Wheaton is hurt! This McBride thing is F&%$ng happening I don't care what anybody says!!
#18 By: Trevor.Moran, October 10th, 2017 13:25
I have Isiah Crowell and luck on my bench. Would you drop any for buck Allen or Jaron brown? Luck should be back soon. And Crowell is facing some tough run D but I don't know if Crowell has positive regression based on Duke Johnsons recent performances.
#19 By: CK, October 10th, 2017 14:18
Good stuff on McBride
Trollface, I'd consider dropping crowell for buck. Cort smith covered that a bit in today's zero rb article

@Miles4099 I expect Gallman to emerge in NYG, but I'm worried about the quality of his touches on what could be a disastrously bad offense going forward. Love Mack, and think you might be able to add and flip McKinnon. I also really like Breida and would prefer him to Foreman in some situations, but you have enough firepower with your starters to stash Foreman's higher ceiling in the case of a Miller injury.
