Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: TE - Week 6 (with video)
If you are serious about winning your fantasy league football championship, stay on top of your fantasy football team throughout the year.
Each week during the NFL fantasy football season, KFFL brings you its Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, which breaks down players to pick up. Be aggressive when picking up fantasy football free agents. Even if you do not need a player, you can tuck him away for depth or block others from adding him to their fantasy football team.

Fantasy football free agents: Look to acquire
The following players will have greater significance in deep fantasy football leagues. In shallow fantasy football leagues, they are not as high of a priority but should be considered based on your fantasy football team's needs.
"The Touchdown Handler" was quiet in a lopsided loss to the San Francisco 49ers, although he did lead the club with 40 yards on four receptions. Don't use that as an excuse not to pick up Chandler. His size makes him a great red zone weapon for a team whose primary playmakers tend to be a bit undersized.
Fantasy football free agents: Watch list
These fantasy football free agents shouldn't be on your immediate list. They may have had a big week. They may have talent but are buried on the depth chart and merely awaiting an opportunity. Still, fantasy football players must know who they are for their potential contribution in the future.
With Jermichael Finley (shoulder) sidelined, Williams was targeted four times and finished with two grabs for 20 yards. His value is wholly dependent on Finley's health, and at a deep position like tight end Williams is only worth considering in larger leagues.
Fantasy football free agents: One-week plays
The following fantasy football pickups are for those who need injury or bye week replacements. They are not players you immediately acquire - unless your team is in dire straits. Some have, however, shown some life and should be followed in case they materialize as options beyond their temporary use.
If you're looking for a desperation matchup play at tight end look no further than Harbor, whose opponent this week is a Detroit Lions squad that has given up six receptions, 75.7 yards and one touchdown per game to the position during the past month (three games).
