Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 7 by @RFLREDZONE
Blake Bortles-QB-Jacksonville owned in 27% of CBS leagues
Bortles looked solid this week against the Titans. He completed 32 passes-of-46 attempts for 336 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed five times for 38 yards. Bortles has thrown for 220 yards or more in three of his four games played, and four touchdowns in the last four. He is having good yardage numbers, but is struggling to find the end zone. Bortles also has great weapons at wide receiver, and if he can start getting the ball across the goal line, things will look so much brighter.
Andre Holmes-WR-OAK owned in 6% of CBS league
David Carr had a great day against the San Diego Chargers and Andre Holmes was the primary benefactor. Holmes caught four passes for 121 yards and two touchdowns. His two touchdowns adds to his total of three in two weeks, and he has 15 receptions for 269 yards in the last four games as well. He has great size, as he stands at 6’4 and weighs 218 pounds, which makes him an awesome red zone target.
Louis Murphy-WR-Tampa Bay owned in 6% of CBS leagues
Even though the Buccaneers got blown out, this just means extra points for players like Louis Murphy. Against the Ravens this week, Murphy caught seven passes for 72 yards and a touchdown. This is the second straight week that Murphy has gotten in the end zone. In the last three games he has caught 16 receptions for 107 yards and two touchdowns. It looks as though Murphy is becoming a favorite of Mike Glennon.
Jarvis Landry-WR-Miami owned in 1% of CBS leagues
Landry had a nice day for the Miami Dolphins. Ryan Tannehill went his direction. Landry has been a steady producer in the last four games, as he has not caught less than three passes, and in the other three, he as receptions of four, five, and six. With his total of 18 receptions and 136 yards with one touchdown. He has took over the Brian Hartline role, and should continue to progress, as the Dolphins continue to get better.
Jace Amaro-TE-New York Jets owned in 10% of CBS leagues
Amaro has peddled around this season, having 14 receptions in four games for 129 yards with zero touchdowns. This week, against the Broncos, was a whole different story. With 10 receptions and 68 yards and one touchdown, Amaro looked more like Tony Gonzalez than the average tight end. The 6’5 265 pound rookie from Texas Tech has the skills to be a solid weapon, it’s the Jets quarterbacks that need to get him involved is the problem.
