Fantasy Football Week 5 Waiver Wire: The Top Pickups to Cover Bye Weeks

Week 5 of the NFL season brings headaches for fantasy football owners. While only two teams, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis, were on bye in Week 4, four teams take a week off this time. Dallas, Detroit, Oakland and Tampa Bay.

That means fantasy starters like Darren McFadden, Miles Austin, Tony Romo, Calvin Johnson and others will all leave big holes in their owners' starting lineups. Chances are that by this point in the season, some of the players drafted on draft day to fill bye weeks have not worked out.

It's for that reason smart owners need to search the waiver wire for replacements who could contribute to a Week 5 fantasy victory.
