Week 7 Waiver Wire - Add, Watch or Flier


AddNick Foles – Foles is the perfect bye week fill in for Drew Brees owners and those looking for much needed points from the QB position for a crucial week 7 win. Last week on the road in Tampa Bay Foles threw for 296 yards and 3 TD’s, and this week he faces the Dallas Cowboys at home and they are allowing the MOST fantasy points to QB’s after 6 weeks.

Flier Josh Freeman – Vikings face the Giants who are allowing the 2nd most fantasy points to QB’s.


AddBrandon Jacobs – He was most likely locked on waivers after his serviceable performance against a banged up Chicago Bears defense. With Wilson out the next 3-4 weeks, it looks like Jacobs will carry the load until their bye week and Andre Brown’s return as long as he remains healthy.

AddJoseph Randle – With Lance Dunbar and DeMarco Murray likely out against the Eagles, Randle by default has start worthy flex value. All you need is touches in this league to be fantasy serviceable and Randle should get his this week.

Add Chris Ogbonnaya (PPR) – Ogbonnaya only had 5 rushes for 24 yards in week 6 but he had a monstrous 12 targets that he converted into 7 receptions for 61 yards and a TD. PPR Flex vs. Green Bay this week.

Watch Mike Tolbert and Jonathan Stewart (PUP)

Watch Chris Ivory (Goodson to IR)


Must AddKeenan Allen (last week’s watch) and Harry Douglas

Add Jarrett Boykin – Next man up in Green Bay with Randall Cobb out at LEAST 6-8 weeks, and James Jones hurting; Boykin could even be the WR2 in GB this week if Jones can’t make it back. With Joe Haden likely shadowing Jordy Nelson, Boykin could be a BOOM player this week.

AddRiley Cooper – As long as Nick Foles is starting, Cooper should be in your Flex or WR3 slot. Cooper is coming off a 6 target 4 catch 120 yard 1 TD performance. This week he faces Dallas, see Foles above.

WatchAaron Dobson – Played 80 of 88 snaps against the Saints in week 6 and with Amendola perhaps dealing with a concussion there is a role and belief in Dobson.


Add Kyle Rudolph – Rudolph was a preseason darling that has probably found himself on your leagues waiver wire. Coming off a hefty 11 targets in week 6 that he converted for 9 catches and 97 yards and a TD, perhaps you need to get back on board with the infusion of Josh Freeman likely this week as this offense begins to percolate.

WatchTimothy Wright – Targeted 9 times for 7 catches and 91 yards in week 6 he’s going up against the Falcons this week who allow the 8th most points to TE’s. Key here – This was the first Bucs game coming out of the bye; so was Wright a focal point for Glennon… or did he just take Mike Williams (out) production?
