Week 5 of the NFL season had many breakout performances by players you need to pick up for your fantasy team on the waiver wire.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and Kansas City Chiefs running back Jackie Battle proved they can be not only bye-week fill-ins for your team, they can be a No. 2 or 3 option at their respective positions.
Let's look at five players who you must pick up for Week 6 on your fantasy team.

Oakland Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is a speedy receiver with great hands, and he's finally living up to his potential.
Over the last two weeks, Heyward-Bey has 11 catches for 214 yards and one touchdown. Quarterback Jason Campbell is making him a part of the offense, and Heyward-Bey's stats will continue to impress the more times he's thrown too.
Pick up Heyward-Bey as a weekly starter or someone who can fill in quite well for your stars when they have bye weeks.
Jackie Battle's impressive Week 5 performance in the Kansas City Chiefs' win over the Indianapolis Colts could make him the starting running back for the Chiefs while Jamaal Charles is out for the season.
As a starter, Battle would be very valuable to your team, but even if he shares carries he's worth a pickup on the waiver wire.
Battle ran the ball 19 times for 119 yards in Week 5, and has a chip on his shoulder as a five-year veteran who went undrafted.
Curtis Painter threw for 277 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in a Week 5 loss, but he finally proved he was capable enough of managing the Indianapolis Colts offense while Peyton Manning is hurt.
Painter has so many weapons to throw to including receivers Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon, as well as elite tight end Dallas Clark. Painter and Garcon already seem to have formed a good chemistry with one another.
Painter is a good pickup for fantasy owners who start two quarterbacks in their league, or if you need a good player to fill in when your starting QB has a bye week.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin has been on fire as of late, and has 220 receiving yards on 13 catches the last two games.
He also has three games with at least 80 receiving yards.
Seahawks starting quarterback Tarvaris Jackson is playing surprisingly well this season, and Baldwin has been one of his primary targets.
Seattle doesn't have a ton of talent at wide receiver, so Baldwin will remain a vital part of their passing offense for the rest of the season. He is a great fill-in for bye weeks, and is good enough to get some starts on your fantasy team too.
Titus Young has all the tools needed to be the No. 2 receiver behind Calvin Johnson for the Detroit Lions. The Lions have a great offense, and quarterback Matthew Stafford needs another reliable target to throw to other than Johnson.
Young has averaged just over 40 yards receiving per game this season, and is a good young player getting better each time he takes the field.
The Lions play several teams with weak pass defenses before their Week 9 bye, including the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons.
