Fantasy Football Update 10/18/16: Week 7 Sleeper Picks
Fantasy Football Sleepers and Waiver Wire Picks for Week 7
October 18, 2016
Now that the NFL’s Week 6 is officially in the books, we owners can start looking to the fantasy football waiver wire in advance of Week 7. Let’s check out a few sleeper options and big waiver wire trends that can help you get that all-important victory this week.
Knile Davis, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: Davis hasn’t done much this year, but that’s about to change. Today, the Chiefs traded him to Green Bay, and the Packers definitely need the help with James Starks on the shelf.

Davis will jump right into a backup role behind Eddie Lacy, and should see a fair amount of snaps right out of the gate (just maybe not as early as Thursday’s game). He’s a decent low-end RB pickup if you’re hurting.
Kenny Britt, WR, Los Angeles Rams: Britt exploded on the stat sheet against Detroit, putting up seven receptions for 136 yards and two touchdowns, his first scores of the year.
Britt is on pace for 1,312 yards this year, which is nothing to sneeze at. He’s locked into a big role in Los Angeles, and that will continue against the Giants this week.
Hunter Henry, TE, San Diego Chargers: We’ve talked about Henry quite a bit over the past couple of weeks, and he’s definitely worth a look if you need a tight end. In Week 6, he scored again, giving him three straight games with a TD.
So far, Henry has 310 receiving yards and 19 targets in the last three weeks. He’ll try to keep it going in Atlanta this week.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons: Speaking of Atlanta, they’ve got a WR in Sanu that you should keep an eye on. He’s coming off 10 targets, five catches, 47 yards and a TD against the Seahawks.
Sanu has 242 yards and two touchdowns so far this year, which isn’t great, but he is getting better. He’ll get a good matchup on Sunday against the Chargers.
Ty Montgomery, WR, Green Bay Packers: Let’s finish up in Green Bay and check out Montgomery, who gains some value this week due to injury. He bagged 12 targets, 10 catches and 98 yards against Dallas.
Montgomery will play Thursday and should again serve as the Packers’ No. 3 receiver and possible backup running back. If you’re down that low, he’s a nice pickup.
