Found October 08, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Falcons and Dolphins are off this week; I don't mean to suggest that the Dolphins had any viable fantasy starters when they were playing anyways. If you have been starting guys like Matt Ryan or Julio Jones you're going to have to look elsewhere for help at these positions. Also, not a whole bunch of injuries this week going to rattle your roster: Owen Daniels, the biggest heart-breaker among top performers.Fantasy Football: Week 6 hot waiver moves:Terrelle Pryor - QB Raiders, @KCJay Cutler - QB Bears, vs. NYG - He seems to have two viable targets on the outside for the first time in his career. Oh, and they're playing against the Giants, need I say more.Zac Stacy - RB Rams, @HOU - He's going to be the starting going forward. Worth a fantasy add if you are hurting at running back and want to take a risk on fresh-legs.Le'Veon Bell - RB Steelers, @NYJ - If he is still on your waiver wire, pick him up. He put up 20 fantasy points his first week back from injury, and has now had an extra week over to pull himself up to 100%. Solid RB2 going forward, rough matchup against the Jets.Pierre Thomas - RB Saints, @NEAlshon Jeffery - WR Bears, vs. NYGJustin Blackmon - WR Jaguars, @DENVincent Brown - WR Chargers, vs. INDGarrett Graham - TE Texans, vs. STL - It seems as if starter Owen Daniels is going to miss a couple of weeks. Graham is not coming off the bench, he sees a large number of offensive snaps as the No. 2 every week. Schaub will rely on him heavily in the red zone.Alex Henery - K Eagles, @TBRobbie Gould - K Bears, vs. NYGJets Defense - Playing the Steelers this week is a good matchup for any defense. Don't think the Jets will fill a void at defense for any long stretch: They play the Patriots, Bengals, and Saints in weeks 7-9 respectively.
