John Orr discusses weekly dynasty IDP waiver pickups during each week of the NFL season.

I’m going to give you a few adds each week for you to consider. I play in deep dynasty IDP leagues so my recommendations will be based on that. You won’t get the big-name adds from me because they are probably owned already. Let’s get ready for Week 6!

Defensive Line

Arden Key (OAK)
The rookie is not showing up on the stat sheet yet, but it’s only a matter of time before that happens. It’s time to get out in front on him. The keys have been handed out to him at the expense of Bruce Irvin. With growing snaps and judging from how close he has been to finishing off plays I think we’re going to see some solid numbers before long.

Defensive Tackle

Davon Godchaux (MIA)
This waiver add gives players in DT-required formats a solid starter for the remainder of the season. With increasing snaps every week his solid production will push him up the scoreboards, and scoring tiers.

Linebackers

Todd Davis (DEN)
We have a player with some injury concerns sitting around to be picked up. You’ll get around seven tackles a week from him, but this week the high-flying Rams will keep the sticks moving. When the defense stays on the field the chances for higher points makes for a solid plug and play.

Safety

Marcus Maye (NYJ)
The world has forgotten about this guy. See what being injured can do to owners? What a performance he gave out for his team. He showcased his talent getting pressure on the QB with his half sack and patrolled the secondary. It’s been two good weeks back to back so let’s get this guy added. The Indianapolis Colts are up next, and I would not leave him on waivers this week.

Justin Reid (HOU)
This is the second week in a row and third time this season I am banging the drum for him. The kid can make plays! The only concern this upcoming week is how many snaps will be available against the ground and pound Buffalo Bills. This is a long-term grab and hold so make the move and don’t look back.

Cornerback

Taron Johnson (BUF)
What a great three-week stretch this kid has had! In the last two weeks, the nickel back picked up his first career sack and interception! With aggressive playing and high energy, he makes plays and the Buffalo Bills have taken notice and continue to get him on the field. With bye weeks he would make a solid addition to your lineups.

Get after it and good luck this week!
