The Oakland Raiders are on a bye this weekend and with that many fantasy football owners with WR Denarius Moore on their squad will be looking for a plugin player. Here is a list of some of the best waiver wire replacements for Moore in Week 7.
WR Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers (6.8%) – Allen showed on Monday night just how valuable he could be to fantasy owners. He has now posted two consecutive 100-yard performances and caught a touchdown pass in each game. He is a great waiver wire addition, considering all the injured wideouts around the league, and the rookie is quickly maturing into a weekly starter.
WR Austin Pettis, St. Louis Rams (8.8 %) – Pettis hasn’t wowed anyone will his downfield ability in St. Louis. However, he has quietly developed into a decent possession wideout. He has hauled in four touchdowns in his last five games and he has been much more productive than his rookie counterpart, Tavon Austin. Don’t get me wrong, Pettis won’t have a 100-yard game this week, but he has a chance to reach pay-dirt for fantasy owners that need a wideout in Week 7.
WR Austin Collie, New England Patriots (1.4%) – After WR Danny Amendola was forced to leave the game with a concussion, Collie ended up making some big plays. The veteran caught two balls from QB Tom Brady for 24 yards, both of which were first downs on the team’s game-winning drive. The fact that he was that involved in the final drive just shows how desperate New England is for a reliable receiver. Collie is an extremely disciplined route runner and he should be able to catch a couple balls this week. If you need a plugin player for Moore this week in a deeper format, take a shot on Collie.
WR Kris Durham, Detroit Lions (0.5%) – Durham really stepped up last weekend with WR Calvin Johnson still nursing a knee injury. Durham was targeted an incredible 13 times versus the Cleveland Browns, finishing the game with eight grabs for a respectable 83 yards. The team desperately needed a complementary option with WR Nate Burleson still out with a broken arm and Durham looks like that guy.
