Week 7 Waiver Wire Pick-Ups

For this week I’m going to go over the players who I’ve already talked about, because at this point in the year the must grab FA’s are gone, but there are still plenty of players available in a good amount of leagues who can be contributors.

Fantasy Football Week 6 Waiver Wire Pick-Ups

Adds

Brian Hoyer- He’s finished as a top 10 QB three weeks in a row now while filling in for Jay Cutler. If he’s still got the job Sunday against the Jaguars Hoyer will make it 4 consecutive weeks.

Marcus Mariota- He led all players in scoring in week 5 and has Cleveland, Indy, Jacksonville and San Diego as his next 4. You could do a lot worse than that. Mariota isn’t a consistent fantasy QB yet but again demonstrated his high ceiling in the Titans win against the Dolphins.

Sammie Coates- Someone has to be the #2 WR on the Steelers right? Coates exploded with 6 catches on 11 targets for 139 yards and two TD’s against the Jets. If he can maintain that level of involvement going forward Coates will be a strong play moving forward.

Quincy Enunwa- I’ve mentioned him before as a potential add but with Eric Decker going on IR he deserves another mention.

Caleb Sturgis- It’s week 6 and it’s time to let loose your crappy kicker if you ended up with one. Sturgis is the 6th best kicker in fantasy football right now, and is available in over 75% of leagues. He’s made at least two field goals and two extra points in every game so far this year.

Davante Adams- He’s scored in three out of his first four games and I don’t think it’s a fluke. He’s a good bet to find the end zone for the Packers but won’t be more than a WR3/Flex unless he can get more volume.

Chris Hogan- He’s been fantasy irrelevant since having a good debut game against the Cardinals, but Brady’s back now and a lot of the players on the Patriots are suddenly worth owning. Hogan went over 100 yards against the Browns and is worth an add.

James White- Just like with Hogan, the presence of Tom Brady makes the value of the players around him go up. White is the receiving back in this offense for right now with Dion Lewis on the PUP list. White had 9 touches for 89 yards Sunday and is a solid flex and better in PPR.

Jesse James- I think this is legit. James has found the end zone in three of his first five games this year. On this Pittsburgh offense I think James is a solid flier for a TD, and at TE right now that’s all you can really ask for.

Bills D/ST- Since getting blown away by the Jets in week 2 the Bills defense has shaped up. In the past three weeks they are averaging four sacks a game, haven’t allowed an opponent to score 20 points and have caused 8 turnovers, leading to two defensive TD’s. They’re next to opponents are the 49ers and Dolphins, who are both plus match-ups for opposing defenses. The time to grab them may have already passed for most, but they are still out there in some leagues and should be a good defense until week 8 when they face New England again.

On The Radar

Cameron Meredith- He had a big game against the Colts, grabbing 9 passes on 12 targets for 130 yards and a TD, but also lost a key fumble. With Alshon Jeffery struggling I would keep an eye on Meredith if Hoyer remains the QB.

Jalen Richard- He tied DeAndre Washington for the most RB carries with 14 while Oakland looked to their young RB’s to fill in for Latavius Murray. He out gained Washington 97 yards to 52 on his touches. I continue to think Richard is the better RB of the two and if Murray misses significant time is the handcuff/RB you want to own in the situation.

Bobby Rainey- A deep PPR league RB. Rainey is filling in for Shane Vereen as the pass catching RB on the Giants. In his last two games he has 13 catches on 15 targets for 95 yards and 9 carries for 44 yards.

Titans D/ST- As mentioned above when referring to Mariota, the Titans next four opponents are the Browns, Colts, Jaguars and Chargers. The Browns and Colts are the among the top 10 in conceding points to opposing fantasy defenses and the Jaguars have been traditionally bad at that. The Chargers may have given up on the season at that point if their bad luck continues. The time to stream them would be now.

Week 5 Waiver Wire Pick-Ups

Hunter Henry- If you were hesitant about him after just one week(rightfully so) he gave you more to trust with another good performance against the Saints. He caught 4 of his 7 targets for 61 yards and a TD and now has over 130 yards receiving in his last two games.

Michael Thomas- He’s stepped it up in Willie Snead’s absence over the last two games. In that span he has had 11 catches on 20 targets for 115 yards and two TD’s(one in each week).

Terrance West- He proved himself to be “the guy” against the Raiders. West had 21 carries for 113 yards and a TD but more importantly other RB’s only got 3 carries this game. If West is going to be the lead back in this way for the Ravens going forward he needs to be owned in all leagues.

Terrelle Pryor Sr- Another game another TD. Pryor continues to establish himself as the go to receiving option for the Browns, leading them in targets again this week. With news that Josh Gordon is a no go for this year Pryor’s role is more secure going forward.

Duke Johnson Jr.- Hue Jackson is going to use both Duke and Isaiah Crowell plenty this year. The same way he used Jeremy Hill and Giovanni Bernard in across the state with the Bengals. Like Bernard, Johnson has more value in PPR leagues as he is the clear receiving back in the offense. However he’ll have flex value in standard leagues from time to time as well like he did against the Redskins, where he picked up 84 total yards on 15 touches. More notably, he had only 3 less touches than Crowell.

Eagles D/ST- In case you forgot how well they played in the first 3 weeks. A lot of people left them on the wire during their bye week.

Robert Woods- The Bills will remain a run first team, but Woods is now the #1 receiver on the team with Sammy Watkins out(again) with injury. He led the team with 10 targets and hauled in 7 of them for 89 yards against the Patriots.

Bilal Powell- Matt Forte owners had to know this would be coming at some point. Powell was a reliable receiving back for the Jets last year, which is why they re-signed him in the offseason. I was dubious that Forte would be the “workhorse” back he had been in Chicago with Powell hanging around and this game started to show that. Powell had 10 touches for 80 yards compared to Forte’s 16 touches for 43 yards. Powell was second on the team with 9 targets as well. He’s more of a PPR player but he needs to be on the radar, and is at least the handcuff for Matt Forte.

Jordan Howard- 26 touches and 132 yards later and you see why he was last week’s #1 pick-up.

Anquan Boldin- More for deeper leagues and PPR leagues. Boldin is the #2 receiving option for the Lions right now and Stafford trusts him on 3rd down. He led the Lions with 8 targets and 6 catches against the Bears. He scored in his previous two games and is on pace for 68 catches and 8 TD’s for the season using his 4 game totals.
