If your fantasy football team is in need of a spark, look no further. Here are five players you should strongly consider adding in Week 5.
We’re four weeks into the fantasy football season and some of your teams really need a boost. Trades are always an option, but the waiver wire can be your best friend this time of year. Of course, you need to know who to target.
Fortunately, we’re here to help you see through the clutter. We’ve identified five guys who are worthy of serious consideration. Some are due to receive increased playing time due to injury, while others are just peaking at the right time.
Let’s dive right into the list with a tight end who is available in nearly every league, but won’t be after Week 5 is finished.
5. Nick Vannett
If you currently own Will Dissly you certainly need to make a move at tight end. Acquiring Vannett will allow you to get the guy most likely to fill Dissly’s role in the Seahawks offense.
He probably won’t provide you top-10 production at the position, but he should be a reliable target for Russell Wilson. Don’t look for him to break big plays down the field, but he can get open on short and intermediate routes. This makes Vannett a particularly intriguing add in PPR leagues.
Let’s be clear here, adding a tight end that’s only averaging 7.4 yards per reception on the season isn’t the sort of move that’s going to help you win your league. It is, however, the sort of speculative add that can prevent you from being killed by a void at the tight end position. Vannett profiles as a below-average TE1, but he can be an above average play in leagues that require two tight ends.
