Coming off of a great Week 6 for ProFootballinsight’s sleepers and waiver wire steals, we have some great Week 7 advice for you to help you replace players who are on bye, injured, or just plan under performing.
We’ll do a brief recap of last week and then get into a couple of running backs who may be available in your league and who could be in store for very nice days this Sunday.
Here is our brief recap of last week. and then we’ll outline a few of our Week 7 sleeper picks and waiver wire steals.
PFI said that Leon Washington, Donnie Avery, Jermichael Finley and Sammy Morris would have good fantasy sleeper weeks. Washington had 144 total yards. Avery had a touchdown, but left the game with an injury. Finley had 54 yards and Morris left the game with an injury. Based on Maroney’s performance, Morris would have had a field day had he not left the game. Sorry, PFI cannot predict injuries.
This week, ProFootballinsight looks for the following two running back sleepers to make a positive impact on your roster:
Week 7 RB Sleepers and Waiver Wire Steals
RB Sleeper Pick: Cadillac Williams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
On a team with four quality running backs, Williams has been stealing carries, yardage, and touchdowns. His match-up this week is difficult as they are playing the Patriots, but Williams numbers can’t be ignored.
Four out of six weeks, Williams has had double digit carries and has two rushing touchdowns on the season, which is two more than Larry Johnson or Steven Jackson. If you’re hurting at RB, Cadillac Williams is a sleeper/waiver wire option in deep leagues.
RB Sleeper Pick / Waiver Wire Steal: Justin Fargas, Oakland Raiders
Fargas is coming off of a 23 carry, 87 yard performance. He is available in almost every fantasy league, and with Darren McFadden’s injury, Fargas looks to gobble up the Raiders carries.
To see which WRs are in line for surprisingly good days. and who could be available as a waiver wire pickup in your league, head on over to Pro Football Insight for our Week 7 sleepers and waiver wire steals.
