Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, Week 7: Best players to add from top-rated expert
Pat Fitzmaurice is among the most accurate Fantasy Football experts in the country
Finding the perfect addition to your team via the Fantasy Football waiver wire can be the difference between winning your league or going home with nothing. And before you determine which players you should target on the Fantasy Football waiver wire entering Week 7, you'll want to see what SportsLine Fantasy analyst Pat Fitzmaurice has to say.
A former Pro Football Weekly editor and writer for over a decade, Fitzmaurice finished second in FantasyPros' 2017 rankings accuracy contest and received a 2017 Fantasy Sports Writers Association nomination for best football series. Now he has done an in-depth analysis of the best widely available free agents heading into Week 7.
"Gore's workload keeps increasing, and the heavier the workload, the better he seems to do," Fitzmaurice told SportsLine. "After rushing 12 times for 63 yards in Week 5, Gore got a season-high 15 carries against a tough Chicago defense in Week 6 and ran for 101 yards. It was the first time since 2014 that Gore produced a 100-yard rushing game on fewer than 20 carries. He's sharing work with Kenyan Drake, but it's a much more even division of snaps than we expected before the start of the season. Gore draws a good matchup this week against a soft Detroit run defense."
"With Tyler Eifert out for the season, Uzomah is Cincinnati's No. 1 tight end," Fitzmaurice said. "And as long as Tyler Kroft remains shelved with a foot injury, Uzomah has the Bengals' TE targets pretty much all to himself. He saw a season-high seven against the Steelers in Week 6 and had six catches for 54 yards."
Fitzmaurice is also strongly recommending a quarterback who gets a highly favorable matchup this week. Anyone who adds this player could hit it big.
So which players should you target on the waiver wire before Week 7? And which free agent quarterback could lead your team to Fantasy glory?
