On Tuesday’s RB1 Podcast, Pete, Clark, Jordan and Nic gave their top waiver wire adds for Week 6. Here are the players they say you should be adding off waivers. (Percent owned via Yahoo.)

Listen to the full podcast here. This transcript has been edited and condensed.

WR DeVante Parker (9% owned)

Clark Barnes: He’s played pretty well in every game that the Dolphins have not played against the Patriots. I know it’s become a meme that thinking DeVante Parker is good at football is the funniest thing twitter has ever seen, but there are limited options in Miami and Miami is going to be throwing the ball. You don’t [the Dolphins] to win for Parker to have a good fantasy day.

WR Darius Slayton (1% owned)

Jordan Smith: He caught a really good touchdown pass this week [against the Vikings]. I’m wildly speculating here, if he’s a rookie and the Giants’ starting quarterback is a rookie, there’s a good chance they’ve gotten a lot of work together. Maybe he’ll become a target for Daniel Jones. And he’s got some speed. Added boost: Sterling Shepard, Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram are all expected to miss Thursday’s game against the Patriots, meaning Slayton could see an even higher workload.

TE Chris Herndon (30% owned)

Nic Bodiford: He is returning from suspension. We all need a tight end and he is really, really good. He’s a TE1 and can be immediately started over guys like O.J. Howard.

Clark: Herndon flashed as a rookie tight end on a horrible team so there is a lot of hope for him. I think a lot of people have forgotten about him.

WR Mohamed Sanu (42% owned)

Pete Rogers: I’ve been preaching him for a couple weeks now, Sanu has been great for them. It’s now been three weeks in a row for him which he’s caught either 75 yards or a touchdown and they’re facing the Cardinals this week so that’s going to continue for him. Sanu’s been a focal point of the offense to start the season.

RB Gus Edwards (7% owned)

Pete: He hasn’t had a breakout game yet, but he’s had a consistent six touches per game over the last three games and the Ravens are about to play the Bengals who are giving up the most fantasy points to running backs and have allowed two running backs to score double digit fantasy points in all but two of their games. So Mark Ingram is going to eat and likely so will Gus Edwards. If you need a quick filler at running back, Edwards is your guy.

TE Gerald Everett (11% owned)

Nic: Week 4 he had eight targets, caught five of them for 44 yards and a touchdown. Last week had 11 targets, caught seven of them for 136 yards. That’s immediate starter production for the tight end position. He’s got 49ers next, Falcons and Bengals after that. Could be a top five tight end.
