Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 7

Chris Humphreys - USA Today Sports
The bye weeks continue and injuries are unavoidable.  Many people have lost some of their top players, but you have been prepared, because you worked the waiver wire right?  Well, fear not, let's work this waiver wire and make it happen.

Check the waiver wire (players probably not there but worth checking):

Justin Blackmon (WR, JAX) - if he is on your wire you just found a piece of gold.

Alshon Jeffery (WR, CHI) - had a tough week, but that is no reason to give up on him.  He is worth the pick-up.

Rueben Randle (WR, NYG) - had a solid week for fantasy, but made a number of errors which didn't help his cause.  The Giants are 0-6 and I  would expect them to keep letting Randle play and learn.

Andre Ellington (RB, ARZ) - he continues to steal more and more carries, but the kicker is the number of receptions he is getting.  If you are in a PPR league then he has tons of upside.

Must Grab

Percy Harvin (WR, SEA) - he is coming back very soon; it's time to stash him.

Joseph Randle (RB, DAL) - the big pick-up of the week with DeMarco Murray going down and most likely missing time.  He should be your top pick-up or Zac Stacy.

Zac Stacy (RB, StL) - Stacy is the feature back in Saint Louis and he is a must grab at this point.  At the very least he is a stash for your bench to use in trades for later.

Nick Foles (QB, PHI) - Foles is getting it done and Vick is not close to returning.  If you need a QB then go ahead and pick-up Foles.

Keenan Allen (WR, SD) - solid pick-up for the week; run and get him.


Brandon Jacobs (RB, NYG) - looked like a beast this week as he was running over defenders.  This should not happen weekly and if he keeps up this pace he will probably injure himself.

Willis McGahee (RB, CLE) - McGahee is getting all the work in Cleveland and is a legitimate FLEX starter during your bye weeks and at the very least will be solid trade bait.

Heath Miller (TE, PIT) - if you are looking for a new TE then grab Miller and call it a day.  He is on the field a ton and is a target monster.

Terrence Williams (WR, DAL) - he is making incredible strides and is an end-zone target.  He can be rostered and is a must grab in dynasty formats.

Josh Freeman (QB, MIN) - it's only a matter of time before Freeman is given the chance to start.  He is worth benching in a 2 QB league.

Jarrett Boykin (WR, GB) - with Randall going down and Jones going down Boykin will be getting the start.  He is worth adding.

Kris Durham (WR, DET) - Durham has stepped up in Burleson's absence for the Lions.  Worth considering in PPR leagues.

Aaron Dobson (WR, NE) - there are a ton of WR's in NE, but Dobson is getting better weekly.

Andre Brown (RB, NYG) - finally, it could be the time to stash him on your bench.  The only issue is the Giants season is all but over, so they may not work Brown to hard to save him for next year.
Bruce Hemmelgarn - USA Today Sports

Zach Ertz (TE, PHI) - he is starting to get in the mix more and more and is a TE to monitor especially in dynasty leagues.

Joseph Fauria (TE, DET) - he won't repeat that performance ever again, but if you are in a TD only league looking for a gamble then Fauria is worth a look.

TJ Yates (QB, HOU) - keep an eye on Yates but he is going to be boom or bust for the Texans.

Thad Lewis (QB, BUF) - tough to come in like he did to take on the Buffalo offense.  Keep an eye on this kid, but his injury may make him worthless.  Matt Flynn is being brought in to try-out for the team.

Tim Wright (TE, TB) - he is worth considering in deep leagues that are PPR, but otherwise he is just a player to monitor now.

Khiry Robinson (RB, NO) - dynasty league owners only, but if you have space to stash Robinson is someone to keep an eye on.
