Week 7 has some key teams and players on byes so hit the fantasy football waivers and make those key pickups with some of the following players to get a win! Most of these guys will be keepers for the rest of the way and difference makers too! Good Luck in week 7!

BYES: Denver, Green Bay, Chicago, Cincinnati


QB, Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars

Did you know that Bortles has thrown for 13 TD’s this season? That’s third most in the league. Since Jacksonville is usually down he’s usually slinging it a ton. What’s not to like about that and a game against a reeling Bills defense in London this week.

RB, Christine Michael, Dallas Cowboys

Michael looks to be the starter now in Dallas. I’m willing to bet it’s his job for good. He’s going to flourish behind that offensive line and this weeks’ opponent is my pathetic Giants. He’s gonna run circles around them.

WR, Martavis Bryant, Pittsburgh Steelers

WOW! Welcome back Mr. Bryant. And even with Landry Jones at QB. He looks really really good and is going to be a monster once Roethlisberger is back along side Antonio Brown. Watch out AFC….here come the Steelers.

TE, Gary Barnidge, Cleveland Browns

OK…..I’m finally on board with this guy. Just reminds me of Jordan Camerson a few years back as the only bright spot on a bad team. Guy just keeps doing it and has 5 TD’s so far this season.

D/ST, Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers are rising fast and are hot right now. This week brings the timid Kansas City Chiefs. Gotta like this matchup.


QB, Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons

Call me crazy but I think Tennessee stays in this game to the end. The Titans are #2 in total defense and I think they give Matty-Ice a tough time in Tennessee.

RB, Justin Forsett, Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore is making another trip to the west and I hope they’re getting frequent flyer miles cuz they aren’t getting any wins. Arizona is really tough on D; especially at home after a loss last week.

WR, Julian Edelman, New England Patriots

This week brings a matchup at home againt the Jets. Problem is that Edelman will probably be on Revis-island most of the day. Not many fare well when stranded there.

TE, Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs

Pretty much the lone bright spot for the Chiefs but I just don’t see much production against the red-hot Steelers.

D/ST, Seattle Seahawks

So maybe the Seahawks get a win and get back on track but I don’t think it’ll be easy. The ‘hawks have had a lot of breakdowns lately and until they prove otherwise you can’t trust ’em.
