The sixth week of NFL games is over and the waiver wire is finally showing some fresh faces again at all the positions except for tight end. This week in particular presents a great opportunity to snag a long term starter at wide receiver. Bye week fill-ins at quarterback are numerous and as usual, more running backs got injured this week thereby vaulting their backups into fantasy football relevance. A majority of the waiver wire adds we recommend this week are the same ones we recommended last week which goes to show just how useful this article can be for getting the jump on potential adds. Be sure to check your waivers for the “Carryovers from Last Week” because in most cases those guys hold the most value. Stay tuned for the cut list we publish every week so you know who you can safely drop.
Quick Note: Not all players that had strong Week 6 outings are on this list, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t have value. If you have any questions about free agents not discussed in this article, head over to the forums and we’ll help you with the answers. If you are wondering who to cut to pick these one of these players up, stay tuned for our Week 7 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Cut List.
TEAM DEFENSE—PICK THEM UP
Minnesota Vikings DST
The Minnesota Vikings’ defense has played well enough to be nearly an every week start. They got shredded this week by Robert Griffin III which should make them more widely available this week. However, wise fantasy football owners should pluck them back off the wire. They face off against the Arizona Cardinals with either an injured Kevin Kolb or a recovering John Skelton.
The Cardinals have given up nearly eight sacks a game over their last three games. Somewhere Jared Allen is licking his chops. The Vikings are available in 52% of Fleaflicker leagues right now so grab them if needed as a streaming defense.
Consider Adding In: 10-team, 12-team and 14-team Leagues
