The 2016 NFL season is six weeks old and the time is now to start picking up people from their fantasy football waiver wire in order to make a playoff push. Every year a no name blows up in over the first few weeks of the season and ends up being a top-20 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire Wide Receivers for Week 7.
Kenny Britt, WR, Los Angeles Rams
Owned in 9% of Yahoo Leagues
After registering seven catches for 136 yards and two touchdowns against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Britt now has at least 75 receiving yards in three straight games and more than 60 receiving yards in five of six games this season.

Among the Rams’ next five opponents, only the Carolina Panthers (Week 9) entered Week 6 in the top half of the league against wide receivers (ESPN scoring). That said, the Panthers have allowed five touchdowns to the position over their last three games as their secondary looks more burnable by the week.
Having Case Keenum as your quarterback is not great for any pass catcher (although he’s improving), but that also serves to make Britt an under-appreciated fantasy wide receiver. The former first-round pick has been a consistent contributor all season thus far, and as a possible bye week fill-in going forward in 12-team leagues that’s plenty good enough. — Brad Berreman
