Fantasy Football 2020: Week 5 Deep Waiver Wire Targets

Spent all of your FAAB already and are desperate for some Waiver Wire pieces? Below are 5 players that probably will cost you little to no FAAB this week…


Isaiah Ford

He was on this list last week and he makes another appearance this week as he seems to be settling in as the WR2 on the Dolphins after a 10 target outing against the Seattle Seahawks. Preston Williams hasn’t come along well in his first few games since last season’s ACL tear and Ford has been getting more playing time as a result. Ford has 25 targets through the first four weeks of the season, a number which ranks 30th in the NFL.  As a result, Ford is a boom-or-bust desperation flex play at the moment but has the potential to be more.  


David Moore

Russell Wilson is on a mission to earn his first MVP award and as a result, you’d be wise to have some part of that Seahawks offense. The cheapest option is David Moore, who just caught 3 passes for 95 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Dolphins. Moore is a boom-or-bust play, but he’s a Metcalf or Lockett injury away from being the WR2 for an explosive offense. He’s worth a roster in deep leagues as this explosive Seattle offense continues to terrorize secondaries.


Anthony MacFarland

Thanks to the team’s recent Covid scare, MacFarland has been forgotten by some of those who have moved on from his Week 2 performance. Remember, the former Maryland standout has explosive speed (4.4 40) and is the backup on a team that runs the 7th most run-players per game (30). Don’t be one of those people and make sure to stash MacFarland Jr. as he’s a Conner injury away from high-end RB2 numbers.


Justin Watson

Godwin is likely out for another two weeks and the Bucs are banged up at receiver. Enter Justin Watson, the 2018 fifth-round pick who caught 4 passes for 40 yards last week. He’s also dealing with a chest injury, but he’s got more of a chance of playing than Godwin or Miller. With an early Thursday Night game, Evans and co. might not have enough time to be fully healthy by game time. Watson is a good stash and possibly a WR4 this week.


Jeff Smith

This is a really, really deep target… but someone has to catch passes besides Crowder, right? With Darnold possibly missing Week 5, Smith doesn’t have much appeal but did have a noteworthy performance against the Broncos as he caught 7 passes for 81 yards. While Bell is set to return and siphon some of those targets, Smith is a worthwhile dart throw.
