1. Christian Ponder, Minnesota Vikings
Ponder gets the nod as the No. 1 quarterback on the waiver wire for the second straight week. He's still only owned in 29 percent of leagues, which is pretty ridiculous for a 4-1 quarterback with only two interceptions.
The Minnesota Vikings get the Washington Redskins this week. Considering the Redskins have allowed the second-most passing yards per game and the most touchdowns through the air (13), look for Ponder to have a huge game.
Don't be surprised if he finishes Week 6 with a few passing touchdowns, a rushing touchdown and plenty of yards.
2. Brandon Weeden, Cleveland Browns
We've been hot on Weeden for a while, and his 291 yards and two touchdowns from last week won't cool him down any heading into this week's games.
He continues to play above average in terms of fantasy football, despite having little talent around him on the offensive side of the ball. One thing to watch this week is if Weeden can continue to find wide receiver Josh Gordon (more on him later).
If those two continue to hook up for big plays, Weeden has starting potential in many leagues.
3. Kirk Cousins, Washington Redskins
This waiver-wire pickup all depends on the health of Robert Griffin III. According to Houston Mitchell at the Los Angeles Times, the Redskins are optimistic about him starting this week.
However, concussions are a tricky thing, and Griffin certainly isn't guaranteed to be playing in Week 6. If he can't play, Cousins becomes an excellent grab off the waiver wire this week.
He showed some ability in limited time last week, and a full game could produce quite a few points for your team.
4. Josh Freeman, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Freeman and the Buccaneers are coming off a bye this week, and they get the gift of playing the Kansas City Chiefs.
While Kansas City completely stopped Joe Flacco, look for Freeman to have much better success against the Chiefs. He's starting to click with offseason addition Vincent Jackson, and that will go a long way to boosting Freeman's fantasy value.
He's currently only owned in 40 percent of leagues, so if you can grab him, go and get him. Even if he is only worth starting for this one week, one week can often be the difference between making the playoffs and being the laughing stock of your league.
5. Tim Tebow, New York Jets
I really didn't want to put Tebow here, but I just don't see how the Jets can continue with Mark Sanchez as their starting quarterback for much longer.
Tebow certainly isn't a great option at quarterback in the NFL, but if he becomes the starter and produces on the ground and through the air, he has some value in fantasy football.
