Week 5 extended into Tuesday night, which means that our league waivers will most likely be run later than usual as a result. With more key injuries and COVID-19 concerns creeping up on us, there isn’t a better time to add some depth to our rosters, no matter what shape our IDP teams are in after five weeks of the fantasy football season. Let’s dive in to see the names most likely to be available heading into Week 6.
While it may have been a quiet Week 5 for rookie K’Lavon Chaisson, we're going to lean on his opportunity with teammate Josh Allen being injured as a reason to roster him — for the next little while at least. We don’t have much information as to the extent of Allen’s knee injury, but not practicing all week heading into Week 5 and then being ruled out early Saturday is definitely concerning for his Week 6 availability.
With that being considered, it was Chaisson who saw an increased role in this Jaguars defense in Week 5, playing a new season-high in snaps (81%) while also matching his season total in pressures (2). While those pressure numbers aren’t extraordinary by any means, the Texans have been a top-10 pass-blocking unit this season and aren't as easy a matchup as previously perceived.
