Eagles wide receiver Travis Fulgham

Another week in the books and some fringe wide receivers are establishing themselves as solid weekly options. Let’s take a look at some players you should prioritize on the waiver wire this week (Roster % via ESPN).

WR Travis Fulgham (45.5%)

Fulgham was on the list last week and after another top-notch week as the clear top target in the Eagles’ offense, it’ll be his last that he’s available in many leagues. He has at least 50 yards and a touchdown in three straight games and while the eventual return of DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery may eat away at some snaps, Fulgham is the Philadelphia WR with the most value hereon out.

  • Use your No. 1 Priority? Yes
  • Recommended FAAB bid (% of max): 40%

WR Tee Higgins (43.8%)

Another guy who was in this section last week. Higgins continues to show that he’s a major part of the Bengals passing game and a trusted target of Joe Burrow.

  • Use your No. 1 Priority? Yes
  • Recommended FAAB bid (% of max): 40%

RB Boston Scott (10.9%)

Miles Sanders left Philadelphia’s game on Sunday with a knee injury and he’ll miss at least one game for the Eagles. Boston Scott wasn’t impressive as the starter in Week 1, though he had success late last season spelling Sanders. it wouldn’t be surprising to see Scott start Week 8 against Dallas as well.

Others to Consider

Dallas Goedert, TE: Goedert is available to return from IR this week and while he’s unlikely to play in Week 7, he’s a strong option once he’s healthy, especially with Zach Ertz dealing with his own ankle injury.

Gus Edwards, RB: The Ravens running back situation has been one to avoid, though, with Mark Ingram‘s ankle injury, it’s possible that Edwards will get more run after Baltimore returns from its bye week.

Trey Burton, TE: The tight end situation in Indianapolis is far from decided. Burton shined in Week 6 with Moe Alie-Cox on the sideline but the week prior, he saw just 45% of the snaps (MAC saw 39%). Burton is a worthy pick-up, though I wouldn’t count on him as a set-it-and-forget-it tight end.

Giovani Bernard, RB: Joe Mixon left the Bengals game this week with an injury and although he returned, this is a situation worth monitoring. Bernard is a worthy flex option if Mixon misses time.

Justin Jackson, RB: Another guy on last week’s list, though with the Chargers on bye in Week 6, he may still be there. Jackson out-snapped Joshua Kelley by 17 (42-25), out-touched Kelley by eight (20-12), and out-gained the former UCLA back by 56 yards (94-38) in the Chargers’ loss to the Saints in Week 5.

Rob Gronkowski, TE: He’s likely owned given his name recognition, though double-check the wire to makes sure. Gronk’s production is starting to pick up and even if it continues to be spotty, he’ll be in contention for top-10 at the position with O.J. Howard out for the year in Tampa.

Drop Time: T.Y. Hilton, Jarvis Landry, Teddy Bridgewater, Eric Ebron, Mecole Hardman, Malcolm Brown, Scott Miller, Nyheim HinesMo Alie-Cox.
