Week 6 is on the horizon and the 2010 football season is hitting its stride. Some fantasy football owners are off to a nice start and heading toward playoff contention, while others might have to settle for being the spoiler and looking ahead to 2011. Week 5 had its share of injuries that might have you looking for a replacement or two for your roster. It also brought new fantasy relevant players to our attention and a few seasoned vets reclaimed their fantasy football value. Whatever your situation you happen to be in, keep in mind that there is a lot of football to be played – don’t count yourself out of contention too soon or rest on your early season laurels. With that in mind, here are Bruno Boys Fantasy Football’s recommendations for Week 6 Waiver Wire “Pick Them Ups.”

QUARTERBACKS - PICK THEM UP
Josh Freeman (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
Freeman had a solid day on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, as he went 20-for-33 for 280 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also rushed three times s for 20 yards in the Buccaneers’ victory. He has put up 15 or more fantasy points in three out of four games this season, and his running ability enhances his fantasy potential. While Tampa Bay will never be confused with a high-octane offense, Freeman has a decent array of weapons around him (TE Kellen Winslow, WR Mike Williams) along with a deep running back corps. His upcoming schedule (New Orleans, St. Louis, Arizona) is also somewhat favorable; therefore Freeman is worth considering if you’re in a need of a QB2. Freeman is currently available in 82 percent of Yahoo! leagues, and he has already had his bye week.
