NFL Fantasy: Week 7 Waiver Wire Targets

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

We're heading into to the swing weeks of the NFL Fantasy season. Finding players on the waiver wire to fill a roster spot of a player on a bye or to fill a void due to an injury becomes much more important. A couple of mid-season breakouts, an injury replacement and a early season contributor highlight this weeks Week 7 waiver wire targets I think you should target.

Jay Ajayi, RB, Dolphins - With Arian Foster's injury earlier in the year, many believed Ajayi would take the opportunity of more touches and run with it. Over the three games Foster missed, Ajayi was able to amass 103 yards on 26 attempts while scoring two touchdowns. Not eye popping numbers but encouraging given the amount of attempts he was given. That changed on Sunday, on 25 attempts Ajayi had a career day by scoring two touchdowns and racking up 204 yards. With Foster still not at 100%, Ajayi looks to be a safe bet to see around 20-30 touches in week 7. (Owned in 31% of Yahoo Leagues)

Kenny Britt, WR, Rams - Kenny Britt has quietly been putting together a career year, he's on pace for well over 1,000 yards heading into week 7. This past Sunday Britt broke out and turned seven receptions into 136 yards and two touchdowns. He seems to be Case Keenum's favorite target which explains his consistent season thus far, look for the targets to continue coming his way and the yards to pile up. Britt has another favorable match-up in week 7 as well as the next three of four coming out of their bye in week 8. (Owned in 11% of Yahoo Leagues)

Spencer Ware, RB, Chiefs - If your like most people who dropped Ware upon the return of Jamaal Charles, you may be kicking yourself after his performance on Sunday. Even though Ware had more rushing attempts (24) compared to Charles' (9), don't look for that trend to continue. The weather in Oakland was wet so the Chiefs could have been holding Charles back since he's coming off a knee injury. That being said, the way Ware has performed this year when called upon has earned him the right to see his fare share of touches and goal line attempts even with Charles back. If one of your managers in your league dropped him, put your claim in now. (Owned in 64% of Yahoo Leagues)

Jack Doyle, TE, Colts - After the departue of Dwayne Allen in the first quarter of Sunday's game due to injury, Doyle stepped in and posted a 4/53/1 line. The Colts don't have much when it comes to receivers, Doyle should be the beneficiary going forward for however long Allen is out for. (Owned in 11% of Yahoo Leagues)

NFL Fantasy: Week 6 Waiver Wire Targets

In need of some help off the waiver wire and don't know who to put a claim in on? Look no further, listed below are four players that are worth putting a claim in on, not only for this weeks games but upcoming ones as well.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Marcus Mariota, QB, Titans - Mariota and the Titans had quite the game on Sunday, they dominated with the run game and were efficient enough through the air to take down the Miami Dolphins. Even though Mariota didn't rack up the yardage through the air, only 163 YD's, he was able to throw three TD's and score another on the ground. If the Titans can continue to be efficient on both offensive facets of the game, Mariota could become extremely valuable down the stretch. (Owned in 47% of Yahoo Leagues)

Cameron Meredith, WR, Bears - With Kevin White set to undergo surgery and be lost for the coming weeks, Meredith stepped into his place and performed admirably. He led the team in targets and turned them into 9 REC/130 YDS/1 TD. The Bears are thin at the WR position outside of Alshon Jeffrey, so look for Meredith to be relied upon from here on out. He is a must-add this week so put those claims in now. (Owned in 3% of Yahoo Leagues)

Devontae Booker, RB, Broncos - Booker hasn't been a fantasy asset as of yet, but with C.J. Anderson struggling the last few weeks, Booker has been able to cut in Anderson's work load. This past Sunday he only carried the ball five times less Anderson and looked better with the limited touches he received. If C.J. continues to struggle, Booker will be more involved in the offense and will then become a viable option at the RB position. If you have a spot on your roster or need a player replaced, Booker is a good option. (Owned in 9% of Yahoo Leagues)

Jesse James, TE, Steelers - James is a very TD dependent option out of the tight-end position, in saying that he is the number one TE on the team. He may not get a lot of targets but when he gets them he usually makes the most out of them. James is a TE2 going forward, so if your in dire need of a TE James is worth adding.

NFL Fantasy: Week 5 Waiver Wire Targets

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

More injuries this week are thrusting second and third string players into starting roles, listed below are some of those players who are most likely to succeed and sustain success through more than one week. 

William Hauser-USA TODAY Sports

Bilal Powell, RB, Jets - Facing a tough Seahawks defense, Powell stepped in after Matt Forte's injury and performed well. Although he was unable to find the end-zone, Powell amassed 26 rushing yards on four attempts and 54 receiving on six receptions. If Forte ends up missing anytime, Powell will be the lead back and a viable option for your team if your in need of a running back. (Owned in 23% of Yahoo Leagues)

Sammie Coates, WR, Steelers -  So far this season Coates has been the go to deep ball threat for the Steelers, in the four games he's played in he's hauled in a pass of 40+ yards in each game. Roethlisberger targeted him the most last game by throwing his way eight times but don't look for that trend to continue as Antonio Brown is the lead guy. It is promising though as it would be an indication that Coates is gaining the confidence of his quarterback. Coates should continue to see around five targets or more each game with at least a few of them being deep balls. If he can start turning these deep catches into TD's his fantasy value will sky-rocket. (Owned in 17% of Yahoo Leagues)

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Hunter Henry, TE, Chargers - In Henry's second week in the place of injured Antonio Gates, he was able to perform at a high level once again by catching four of seven targets for 61 yards and a touchdown. Henry will continue to see targets so long as Gates is out. Henry needs to be on your team, grab him now while you still can. (Owned in 31% of Yahoo Leagues)

Robert Woods, WR, Bills - With Sammy Watkins now on IR, the Bills are looking to Woods to step up in his absence. As the clear No.1 this week, Woods turned ten targets into seven receptions and 89 yards. With not many other options in the Bills receiving corps, Woods will continue to see a whole lot of targets coming his way. (Owned in 8% of Yahoo Leagues)
