Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 7
As Week 6 of NFL action unfolded, more teams suffered injuries to critical players, which likely means your fantasy football team was affected. Whether or not that’s the case, you can benefit by snatching up these players off the fantasy waiver wire this week:
Nick Foles is the new starting quarterback in Philly. He threw for a hair under 300 yards and three touchdowns in a Philadelphia Eagles win, so expect him to remain under center even when Michael Vick is healthy.
Kris Durham was targeted 13 times and hauled in eight passes and considering he plays in the Detroit Lions‘ pass-happy offense, Nate Burleson is hurt and Ryan Broyles has been a ghost, Durham could help your fantasy team going forward this year.
Timothy Wright has emerged as a solid receiving option since Mike Glennon took over under center for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, so definitely give the young receiver a look because he might be part of a solid youthful passing tandem that’s just getting started.
Jarrett Boykin is a solid pickup this week because Randall Cobb and James Jones both suffered injuries in the Green Bay Packers‘ win, which means Boykin is in for more targets from Aaron Rodgers. In fantasy land, that’s always a good thing.
