Week 6 is here and we have a few big injuries that will be playing into waiver wire decisions this week. Numero uno is Jamaal Charles going down with a torn ACL. Not good. Additionally, Jags’ QB Blake Bortles could be sidelined with an AC joint sprain. Between making the best of injuries and new players rising up, there are several good targets to pick from going into Week 6.
It looks like Jamaal Charles is out with a significant knee injury. That’s going to leave the Chiefs running game in the hands of Knile Davis and Charcandrick West.

Rawls had a big performance in Lynch’s absence in Week 5. Many owners sent him back to the player pool after an uninspired Week 4 performance. There’s a chance Lynch will remain out for some time nursing a hamstring injury, so now is the time to grab Rawls if he’s out there.
