Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Work, Week 6

First an apology to Terrell Owens: Seems that the reason he was crying and seemed upset after the game this past weekend was that he had a death in family. My condolences and my apologizes for thinking you were being a jerk because he only had two catches.

TO Alert Level - Now At Guarded, down from High

RB Correll Buckhalter, PHI
RB Lorenzo Booker, PHI
Brian Westbrook has two fractured ribs. Ouch! I don't care if you're wearing a flak jacket. Every defensive back will be making a special effort to reach out and touch Westbrook on his ribs for the coming weeks.

TE LJ Smith, PHI
People forgot about LJ because he was injured early in the season, but he's a big threat when he's healthy. McNabb has to throw it around.

WR Mike Walker, JAC
Seems to be the go to guy in Jacksonville. Someone had to step up since no one else was. Also watch Matt Jones. His drug possession case was knocked down because he agreed to drug counseling. So no shot of him missing time. He's been playing well too.

WR Donnie Avery, STL
Someone else besides Torry Holt and Steven Jackson has to make plays for the Rams to break out of their funk. This is a stretch with the Rams playing the way they are. Take a chance if you have bench space.

WR Bernard Berrian, MIN
Emerging guy for the Vikings. Nice game last week. Gus Frerotte is not your ideal QB but he's throwing when they put eight in the box against Adrian Peterson.
