Week 7 Waiver Wire TEs
Week 6 is almost behind us and some of you are starting to appreciate that this is a passing league. Yet you can’t help but wonder why you are not allowed to pass on picking a tight end. Some of you thought Aaron Rodgers hated Jimmy Graham. And you were wrong. Some of you thought a golfer’s grandson couldn’t play football. And you were wrong. Some of you thought fantasy football could be fun. And oh boy were you wrong. If you have read my waiver wire articles before, you know I don’t believe in burning your waiver priority on tight ends. They are the hardest position to predict. But if you insist on wasting everyone’s time, there are plenty of waiver wire tight end options available to disappoint you in new and exciting ways. If I don’t mention someone whom you think I should be talking about, just know there are many reasons why I overlooked them. Maybe they are owned in most leagues. Maybe they are so bad I don’t even consider them. Maybe it’s because your opinions cannot be trusted. After all, you are here. So let us examine what our best week 7 waiver wire TEs.
O.J. Howard – Owned in 45% of leagues – The rumors of O.J. Howard’s demise were greatly exaggerated. In week six, he continued to surprise with 4 catches for 62 yards and 1 touchdown. I was actually stunned to see that O.J. Howard was available in 45% of leagues, considering the dearth of talent at the position. While I wouldn’t use my waiver wire claim on any week 7 waiver wire TEs, I would definitely consider adding him to my roster.
C.J. Uzomah – Owned in 24% of leagues – In week six, C.J. Uzomah had 6 catches for 54 yards. The question of who will fill the void left by Tyler Eifert when his body contracted into a singular quantum anomaly has been answered. In week six, C.J. Uzomah was on the field for 92% of the Cincinnati Bengals snaps. Also in week six, 8% of fantasy owners started Uzomah. And 0% of fantasy owners were happy about having to start C.J. Uzomah. Do not add to your roster.
Nick O’Leary – Owned in 0% of leagues. – Nick O’Leary shocked fantasy football players everywhere in week six with his 4 catches for 49 yards and 1 touchdown performance. They were not shocked that O’Leary had a good game. They were shocked that he actually existed since nobody had heard of him prior. So to help our readers get to know Nick O’Leary, I have discovered two interesting facts about him. Fact one: Nick O’Leary is the grandson of golfing legend Jack Nicklaus. Fact two: Nick O’Leary will never again be relevant in fantasy football. Do not pick up on waivers.
