Waiver Wire is our weekly look at players available in many leagues that could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster, or simply just players to keep on your radar. We’ll be here all season to let you know which players to watch, who to ignore, and most importantly, who to pick up. If you have any waiver wire questions, feel free to post them in our Fantasy Football Forum.

DeMarco Murray DAL | RB

Felix Jones suffered another injury this week, and it will cause him to miss a few weeks. It looks like Murray has fully taken over as the backup, and he could be a nice pickup. He had twice as many carries as Choice, and there have been some trade rumors that have popped up about Choice. The Cowboys have the Rams week 7 and Murray could be a nice pick up and play if need help at RB. (about 15% owned)

Montario Hardesty CLE | RB

Hillis hurt his hamstring week 6, and this could open the door for Hardesty to maybe get a couple starts. He didn’t look that amazing against the Raiders week 6, but he could be a nice temporary solution if Hillis misses any time. Hillis was also subject to trade rumors, but this injury could hurt is value on the trade market. (about 20% owned)

Jackie Battle KC | RB

Battle wasn’t pickup up in a lot of leagues because he was on a bye week 6, but he needs to be picked up if he is still available. He has an impressive week 5 and I expect him to get the bulk of the carries for the Chiefs in week 7. Jones and McCluster haven’t looked great, so at this point it looks like it’s Battle’s job to lose. (about 40% owned)

Steve Breaston KC | WR

Breaston had 2 solid games in a row before his bye week 6, and with a matchup against the Raiders week 7 it could be 3 good games in a row. The Chiefs offense has averaged 25 points in the last two games, and it looks like they might be onto something. The Raiders D gives up 25 points a game, so look for the Chiefs to keep up this recent hot streak on offense. (about 25% owned)


Michael Crabtree SF | WR

We are all still waiting for Crabtree to live up to the hype from when he came into the league. The 49ers are playing awesome this year, and if Gore keeps running well then this should make it easier on Alex Smith and the passing game. Crabtree was targeted a lot week 6, and with all the injuries to the 9ers WRs I expect Crabtree to continue to have a big roll in that offense. (about 50% owned)

Fred Davis WAS | TE

Davis is putting together a solid season, and with the recent Cooley injury he could see a few more targets moving forward. The Redskins passing game hasn’t looked that great the last two weeks, but Beck might be able to help change that. Davis is a big talented TE, and he could be a great bye week fill in with the potential of being your every week guy. (about 50% owned)

Maurice Morris DET | RB

The status for Best is uncertain for week 7, this could open the door for Morris to get the start. He put up decent numbers last year when given the carries, and he has proven that he can handle the load. The Lions have a tough matchup against the Falcons week 7, but Morris could be a decent start if you are in a pinch. (about 5% owned)

Doug Baldwin SEA | WR

Baldwin has secured some playing time with the Seahawks, and this un-drafted rookie has proven he can make an impact. He still has some guys ahead of him on the depth chart, but if he keeps putting up numbers they will find a way to get him the ball. The quarterback situation in Seattle could be better but they will be playing from behind a lot, which could mean some nice junk yards for Baldwin. (about 25% owned)

Dallas DAL | DEF

The Dallas D hasn’t been that amazing this year, but they could have some success week 7. They are going up against a Rams team that will probably be without Bradford, so look for the Cowboys to bring the pressure. The Rams backup QB is A.J. Feeley and I have little confidence that he will get much going against the Cowboys. (about 50% owned)

Denver DEN | DEF

With a matchup against the Dolphins week 7 I think the Broncos could have a decent game on D. Matt Moore is an ok QB, but I expect him to turn the ball over a few times. I don’t like them as much as the Cowboys D this week, but if you don’t like your matchup you could do a lot worse than the Broncos. (about 5% owned)

Damian Williams TEN | WR

Williams is currently my favorite deep sleeper receiver, and I think he is worth a look in a lot of leagues. I have little faith that Washington can handle everything that was left by Britt, and I expect Williams to be a big part of that offense. The coaches have been getting on him with his conditioning, but I still have high hopes for this young receiver. (about 5% owned)

Jerome Simpson CIN | WR

Apparently having pounds of weed delivered to your house doesn’t prevent you from playing for the Bengals. Simpson had a few mediocre games in a row, but he had a season high 6 catches this week with over 100 yards. The Bengals offense is way better then I thought it would be this year, and Simpson could have some fantasy value as Dalton continues to improve. (about 20% owned)

Greg Little CLE | WR

Little is quickly becoming the best wide receiver option for the Browns, and he should have value this year. The Browns passing game is far from amazing, but Little should still be able to see enough targets to put up numbers. He is a big physical receiver and the Browns have a lot of confidence in their rookie. (about 20% owned)

John Beck WAS | QB

I fully expect Beck to be the starting QB for the Redskins week 7, and he is worth an add if you are desperate at that position. Beck impressed me with his ability to scramble and get away from pressure, and he brings something with his legs that Grossman can’t offer. The Redskins will probably wait until later in the week to announce their starter, but at this point I would be shocked if they go back to Grossman. (about 5% owned)

Arrelious Benn TB | WR

We all know that Tampa Bay has the potential of being a high-powered offense, but they haven’t been very consistent to this point. If Freeman and the Bucs can continue to improve, then this could make Benn an interesting pickup. Mike Williams attracts a lot of attention, so this takes a lot of pressure off Benn. The second year receiver is putting together a decent year, and he is gaining the attention of the fantasy world. (about 5% owned)

Keep an Eye on

Carson Palmer CIN | QB

It seems unlikely that Palmer will get traded, but it is possible the Raiders will make an offer the Bengals can’t refuse. WIth Campbell out for a while the Raiders could really use a trusted veteran arm. We should know more later in the week, but if you are desperate for a QB you might want to add him just in case. (about 5% owned)

Christian Ponder MIN | QB

Ponder looked ok after he came into the game for McNabb week 6, and at this point I think it would make sense for the Vikings to make the switch. It’s clear that McNabb is well past his prime, and the Vikings will not be making the playoffs anytime soon. Ponder will not have a lot of weapons to throw too, but he will have AP to help take some pressure off him. (about 5% owned)

Demaryius Thomas DEN | WR

One of the reasons the Broncos were willing to trade Lloyd is because they knew they were getting Thomas back. Thomas showed last year that he has a lot of talent, and he should get a chance for a starting gig right away. It is yet to be seen how much Tebow is going to throw the ball downfield, but Thomas in an athletic WR who is worth keeping a very close eye on. (about 5% owned)
