Dan Bailey is now on the Vikings... pick him up as your kicker. Great player that purposefully landed in the perfect situation.

Pickups After Week 6 - Brandon LaFell

 

 

Waiver Wire Week 7

 

 

Brandon LaFell – WR – Patriots – Owned in 17% of CBS leagues – LaFell is cementing his role as the deep play receiver in the Patriots offense. This week he was targeted six times, and hauled in four passes for 97 yards with two big touchdowns. Tom Brady is starting to trust Brandon, and the reemergence of Rob Gronkowski is allowing him to consistently see one-on-one coverage. If you are looking for a receiver with some potential to produce, grab LaFell.

 

Malcom Floyd – WR – Chargers – Owned in 37% of CBS leagues – Floyd is quietly having a nice season, and this week he had his best game of the year. Malcom finished the game with five catches for 103 yards and a touchdown on seven targets. He is the deep threat for Philip Rivers, the Chargers always take a few shots downfield each game. Keenan Allen is getting all the attention from opposing defenses, and Floyd gets consistent one-on-one coverage. Rivers throws a great deep ball, and Floyd will be a consistent fantasy producer who can also pop nice games like this one.

 

Robert Woods – WR – Bills – Owned in 7% of CBS leagues – Woods had a nice game on Sunday with seven catches for 78 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets. I had mentioned Woods as a pickup back after Week 1, but he suffered with E.J. Manuel at quarterback. Now that Kyle Orton has control of the offense Woods is a viable option once again. Sammy Watkins will continue to draw the most attention of opposing defenses, and Orton is a quarterback that will take what the defense is giving him, which gives Woods plenty of chances.

 

Davante Adams – WR – Packers – Owned in 9% of CBS leagues – I have been mentioning Adams since Week 2, and he continues to see a good amount of targets. This week he was targeted eight times, and caught six passes for 77 yards. The Packers running game continues to be ineffective, and Rodgers is not afraid to throw to the rookie. Davante is going to continue to improve, so don’t sleep on this guy.

 

Allen Robinson – WR – Jaguars – Owned in 40% of CBS leagues – Robinson is another player that I have been telling you about since Week 2, and he continues to be one of the most targeted receivers. This week Bortles looked his way nine times, and they connected on eight of those for 68 yards. He was held out of the endzone, but it is clear that he is becoming Bortles favorite target. The two will continue to grow, and that high volume of targets will eventually lead to some touchdowns as well.

 

Andre Holmes – WR – Raiders – Owned in 6% of CBS leagues – Holmes is a big play receiver, and he made big plays this week. Andre was targeted eight times by Derek Carr, and hauled in four of them for 121 yards and two touchdowns, one of which went for 77 yards. Holmes is going to be an inconsistent fantasy receiver, but he has the ability to break these long plays, and if he continues to improve on his chemistry with Carr, could be worth taking a shot on. 

 

Jarvis Landry – WR – Dolphins – Owned in 1% of CBS leagues – The rookie had his best game of the season Sunday, finishing with 75 yards on six receptions with a touchdown. Tannehill looked his way eight times, and Jarvis showed nice playmaking ability. The result of his good play is that Brian Hartline was only targeted twice in this game. Landry is in line to take over as the second receiver for Miami, and is worth grabbing if you need a receiver.

 

Justin Hunter – WR – Titans – Owned in 45% of CBS leagues – Hunter continues to make this list, and while he only saw five targets this week, he caught three of them for 77 yards. Justin is a bang or bust fantasy player, but if you are in a league that rewards for long touchdowns Hunter is worth taking a flier on.

 

Mike Evans – WR – Buccaneers – Owned in 55% of CBS leagues – Evans returned to action, and caught four passes for 55 yards on eight targets. The big rookie did not have any real impressive plays in this game, but he is going to continue to see a lot of targets. It also does not hurt that the Buccaneers are not a good defense, and seem to always be playing from behind.

 

Louis Murphy – WR – Buccaneers – Owned in 6% of CBS leagues – Murphy continued to effective, even with Mike Evans returning to action. Louis had seven receptions for 72 yards with a touchdown on nine targets. I have been mentioning Murphy for the last three weeks, so if you are in a deep league and need a receiver with potential for targets and touchdowns, grab this guy.

 

Jerricho Cotchery – WR – Panthers – Owned in 12% of CBS leagues – Cotchery can provide your fantasy team with a veteran presence that can be counted on to score some points each week. This week he had 58 yards on four receptions, but was targeted 10 times. Jerricho is not going to single handily win you any fantasy weeks, but if you are in a deep league and need a consistent contributor, look no further.

 

Jace Amaro – TE – Jets – Owned in 10% of CBS leagues – The rookie had his coming out party Sunday, with 10 receptions for 68 yards with a touchdown on 12 targets. The Jets are looking for anyone to step up and produce on offense, and Amaro is going to get more opportunities after this performance. Normally you would not want to target a receiving option on the Jets, but Jace is worth taking a shot on if you need tight end help.

 

Scott Chandler – TE – Bills – Owned in 14% of CBS leagues – Chandler’s game has improved since Kyle Orton has taken over at quarterback. This week Orton looked Chandler’s way nine times, and he caught six of those for 105 yards. Orton takes what the defense gives him, and he has faith in the big 6’7” tight end. If you are in a deep league and looking for a tight end option Chandler is worth picking up.

 

Ladarius Green – TE – Chargers – Owned in 32% of CBS leagues – Green finally had a decent game this week, with four catches for 60 yards on five targets. Green is still not the redzone option, as Antonio Gates once again scored a touchdown this week. Ladarius can make some big plays, but he is just not seeing enough targets to be a consistent source of fantasy production, and is more of a handcuff to Gates at this point.

 

Clay Harbor – TE – Jaguars – Owned in 12% of CBS leagues – Harbor was making big plays on Sunday, and finished with 91 yards on three catches, including a 20-yard touchdown, while being targeted four times. Clay also had a 59-yard catch and run in this game, and showed nice speed. Harbor is not going to give you consistent points, and needs more targets to be truly effective going forward.

 

Austin Seferian-Jenkins – TE – Buccaneers – Owned in 10% of CBS leagues – ASF had four catches for 58 yards on five targets. This was his first game with over 50 receiving yards, and he has still yet to score a touchdown this season. Only consider him if you are a very deep leagues at this point. 

 

Jermain Gresham – TE – Bengals – Owned in 6% of CBS leagues – Gresham is not going to light the fantasy world on fire, but as long as Tyler Eifert is out he can give you some consistent production, but not a lot of touchdown production. Jermaine had six receptions for 68 yards on seven targets this week.

 

Jerick McKinnon – RB – Vikings – Owned in 57% of CBS leagues – McKinnon has been mentioned here many times already this season, and hopefully most of you have picked him up. This week he had 11 carries for 40 yards, and added another 42 yards on six receptions. The Vikings are realizing that he has much more potential than Matt Asiata, and he will continue to see his role increase in the coming weeks. If he is still available you should grab him now.

 

Antone Smith – RB – Falcons – Owned in 52% of CBS leagues – I have been telling you about Antone for a few weeks now, and he continues to be a home run hitter. This week he carried the ball twice for five yards, but he had 64 yards on four catches, including an awesome 41-yard touchdown catch and run. This kid makes plays every week, and if he is still available you need to grab him. His role will can only increase, so pick him up now before its too late.

 

Isaiah Crowell – RB – Browns – Owned in 33% of CBS leagues – The Browns went with Crowell as the backup to Ben Tate this week, with Terrance Williams inactive in this game. Isaiah responded with 77 yards on 11 carries with a touchdown. I had Crowell as a pickup after Week 1, and he is still worth grabbing now. Ben Tate is always an injury risk, and with his performance this week, Isaiah is a good bet to be Tate’s primary backup again next week.

 

Theo Riddick – RB – Lions – Owned in 1% of CBS leagues – Riddick assumed the Reggie Bush role in the offense, with Reggie sitting this one out. Riddick was not very effective running the ball with only six yards on three carries, but he did a lot of damage as a receiver, with 75 yards on five receptions, including a touchdown. Once Reggie Bush returns Riddick will once again have limited exposure in this offense, and is only worth grabbing if you are a Bush or Joique Bell owner.

 

Storm Johnson – RB – Jaguars – Owned in 43% of CBS leagues – Storm got his first start this week, and if you used him as a spot starter, he did score you a touchdown, but that was about it. Johnson was not effective running the ball with only 21 yards on 10 carries. If it were not for his 1-yard touchdown run, he day would have been a total loss. He may continue to get chances in this offense, but he is not going to be a consistent fantasy producer.

 

Blake Bortles – QB – Jaguars – Owned in 27% of CBS leagues – The rookie had his first 300-yard game of his career on Sunday, completing 32 of 46 passes for 336 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Blake also showed his mobility, adding 38 yards on five carries. The Jaguars are consistently playing from behind, and they don’t have a consistent rush attack, which means Bortles will continue to air it out a lot in the coming weeks. Expect some ups and downs, but this kid has the most potential of the rookies.

 

Derek Carr – QB – Raiders – Owned in 8% of CBS leagues – Carr had his coming out party on Sunday with four touchdown passes. The rookie was still not very efficient, only completing 18 of 34 passes for 282 yards, but he connected on a lot of big plays with his receivers. The Raiders are still having issues stopping teams on defense, which means Carr should have to continue to air it out a lot the rest of this season. He does have players that can make big plays, but he does not have a proven threat at the receiver position. There is a lot upside for Carr after this performance.

 

Teddy Bridgewater – QB – Vikings – Owned in 38% of CBS leagues – Teddy did not have a good game on Sunday. He completed 23 of 37 passes for 188 yards, with no touchdowns and three interceptions. This was a forgettable day for Bridgewater, who was under constant pressure from the Lions defense. If you target Teddy you have to realize there are going to be a lot of ups and downs, and there will be games like this.
