If you had the precognitive ability to start Chase Claypool in DFS in Week 5, well … congratulations.

The Steelers just continue to prove their mastery at locating and developing wideouts. Claypool looks like a must-roster and the most popular waiver wire pick of Week 6.

<h2 class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="Henry Ruggs III, WR,&nbsp;Las Vegas Raiders&nbsp;(44% rostered)» data-reactid=»26″>Henry Ruggs III, WR, Las Vegas Raiders (44% rostered)

While the volume wasn’t exactly there for the rookie receiver (he only caught two passes on three targets), Ruggs showed exactly why the Raiders invested a first-round draft pick on him. He turned two catches into a whopping 118 yards and a touchdown, showing off how, any time he touches the ball, a big play could be in the works.
