Week 7 Bye Teams: Buffalo, Cincinnati, New England, New York Giants, Philadelphia, San Francisco
SB Nation's partner numberFire.com has provided us with some waiver wire tables for Week 7. Their computer looks at players who should perform above average or below average in the coming weeks. The above average guys are serious considerations for adds. The below average guys are trade fodder or potential drops.
Of course after today's big trade, the hot add is quarterback Carson Palmer. He may be a little rusty coming out of the gate, but with the Raiders having a promising season and some offensive weapons at his disposal, Palmer might be able to give a fantasy roster a strong stretch run.
The injury to tight end Chris Cooley has people thinking about Fred Davis again and he's projected to have bigger days ahead. The hamstring injury to Peyton Hillis raises the value of his backup, Montario Hardesty, who had already been eating into the carries for Hillis.
On the downside, numberFire.com has the below average projections. If you haven't already given up on Chad Ochocinco, you certainly should by now. Knowshon Moreno has seen his position in Denver usurped by Willis MacGahee, making Moreno expendable. With the emergence of Jackie Battle in Kansas City, Dexter McCluster sees his projected worth take a big hit.
