Offensive Deep League Gems – Week 7
Is it possible for six weeks to already be spoken for in the 2014 NFL season? Time flies when you’re having fun – or when you’re slaving over a hot waiver wire after a lackluster fantasy football performance.
In deeper leagues, this slaving can sometimes feel like a full-time job. It’s not only about finding a contributor for the short-term, but also someone who can give a boost to your entire fantasy lineup. There are many reasons for heading to the wire: disappointment, bye weeks, injuries, a lack of depth at a given position. But you don’t always come up with a good solution – there are just too many names and too many unknowns.
That’s where we come in to help. There are always gems on the waiver wire to be had, even in leagues of 14-, 16-, 18-teams or more. It’s just about separating out the noise and focusing on who has the best chance to make plays for his real-life team and, by extension, your fantasy one.
Without further ado, here are the four best waiver-wire pickups for Week 7, with an eye toward helping out GMs trying to find success in deep leagues.
