Week 7 – Waiver Wire Pickups


  • Brett Hundley, Packers

Hundley immediately steps in as a QB2 and can serve as a bye week fill-in or streamer.  Yes – he looked terrible this past week in 3 quarters against the Vikings on the road in Minnesota.  Don’t hold it against him, he has looked good in preseason action, has been in this system for 3 years, and was a stud in college.  He threw for 75 touchdowns and rushed for 30 more during his 3 years starting at UCLA.


  • Travaris Cadet, Jets (repeat)

He had 3 receptions for 26 yards serving as the receiving back behind Matt Forte in week 6.  Forte caught 8 for 59 in the game.  When Forte inevitably goes down with an injury again, Cadet could be valuable if Bilal Powell can’t get right.

  • Rod Smith, Cowboys

This was a player I mentioned earlier in the season.  Smith was a great player at Ohio State who had his career derailed due to some off the field issues.  Ezekiel Elliott’s season hangs in the balance, and it is likely that Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris will get the first crack at the job.  That said, Smith is a dark horse to get carries if one or both of them struggle.



  • Bennie Fowler, Broncos

Fowler gets to face off against the Chargers again this week, they gave up two TDs to him in week 1 this year.  Fowler had 8 targets against the Giants on Sunday Night Football while filling in for Emmanuel Sanders for part of the game.  Sanders has already been ruled out for week 7, so Fowler should see plenty of looks.

  • Ryan Grant, Redskins

Although Josh Doctson got the touchdown last week, he was out-snapped by Ryan Grant who has had his best season to date.  The 4th year pro out of Tulane has two TDs on the season, matching his career high.  He likely won’t warrant fantasy consideration this season, but he should definitely be stashed for the future.  If he can stay on this pace he could end up with 45 catches, 450 yards, and 6 TDs.

  • Jeremy Kerley, Jets

This is a guy I mentioned in the preseason when the Jets picked him up off of waivers.  He has almost had decent production, and he has been super efficient.  He has hauled in 19 of his 20 targets on the year for 193 yards and finally found the end zone in week 6 against the Patriots.  He is worth stashing for his week 10 matchup against the abysmal Buccaneers pass defense.
