Since I’m asking you to trust me every time you open this newsletter and read my advice, I figure a little transparency isn’t too much to ask in return. So, with five weeks of the NFL season in the books, here’s how things stand in my 14 fantasy leagues to date: 
That comes out to a 44-26 overall record after I went 10-4 in Week 5. I’m pretty happy with that start, with that one 1-4 team being a SuperFlex league where a rotating door at RB2 — J.D. McKissic was in there ahead of Darrell Henderson this week and the disappointments of George Kittle and Darnell Mooney really holding me back.
Of course, even in that league, I’m not giving up hope. I still have Lamar Jackson, and Alvin Kamara looks poised to take off after a very strong Week 5 and some flukey, injury-based concerns in the season’s first month. And hey, I’ve got Eno Benjamin on my bench, and it looks like he could help solve by RB2 conundrum in a big way for at least one week. 
Benjamin is one of Jamey Eisenberg’s top waiver-wire targets this week, and he’s a top-12 RB in my first round of rankings for Week 6 for each position. You can find both of those in the rest of today’s newsletter, with my top-150 flex rankings down at the bottom, too. For more help with injuries and waiver claims, make sure you tune in to Fantasy Football Today on CBS Sports HQ at noon ET today as we talk about the latest injuries and storylines.

➕Top Week 6 Waiver Wire Targets
This might be the best crop of waiver-wire targets of the season, led by one running back who is staring at a significant rest-of-season role and another who could be a must-start option this week. Here are Jamey Eisenberg’s top waiver-wire targets for Week 6:
Here are my initial rankings for Week 6, but you should check out the links below for more of my thoughts on more than 90 players for Week 6 at quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight end.
