Fantasy Football Week 7 waiver wire pickups

Felix JonesWith a plethora of injuries following Week 6, and in addition to another in a series of bye weeks, there are some nice additions that you can make to your roster listed here. The key is to act quickly before you find yourself scraping the bottom of the proverbial barrel. Here are our best five waiver wire pickups for Week 7.

Josh Gordon-WR-Browns- There certainly appears to be some decent chemistry between QBBrandon Weeden and WR Josh Gordon. Targeted the second most times in last week’s contest, Gordon had a 71 yard touchdown pass vs the Bengals and totaled 99 yards on the day. This week he’ll go up against the Indianapolis Colts who have given up the 7th most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. Owned in less than 20% of leagues, Gordon makes for a decent flex play and serviceable WR2 in Week  7.

Felix Jones-RB-Cowboys- With usual starting RB DeMarco Murray (foot) already ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers, Felix Jones become a Must Add in all formats this week. Jones ran for just under the century mark (92 yards) and a touchdown against Baltimore last week and should have an easier time of it vs a Panther’s team that’s yielded the 2nd most fantasy points to running backs. Plus, Jones can catch a ball or two as well and will be an asset in PPR leagues this week as well. As of Tuesday, Jones was owned in only 26% of leagues; a figure that’s sure to triple before the week is over. Read more…
