Keepers, Sleepers, and Jeepers: Week Seven

By Adam Filadelfo (@FNTSYArchitect)

It's Tuesday and that could only mean one thing if you play fantasy football. It's time once again to get those waiver wire claims in and look towards week seven of the fantasy football season. Without further ado, I present you with Keepers, Sleepers and Jeepers for week seven.

Keepers

Christine Michael- Running Back- Dallas Cowboys- Since Christine Michael has hardly seen any action since coming to Dallas, fantasy owners have to take that leap of faith when putting in a claim for Christine Michael. He's been running with the first team all week and with a strong showing this week, could end up being the Cowboys starter moving forward. Christine Michael could end up being the most added player heading into week seven. Fantasy owners will not want to miss out on the production that the former Seahawks back could produce.

Brandon LaFell-Wide Receiver- New England Patriots- Now that LaFell is eligible to come off of the PUP, fantasy owners will want to grab him off their waiver wire if he's still available. He obviously has no production to base this decision on for 2015, but last season saw LaFell average over nine fantasy points per game and get 119 targets. He became a favorite target for Brady and once he's back in the lineup, should produce once again for the defending Super Bowl champions. What's even better is that the Patriots bye week is over and you won't have to worry about replacing him.

Sleepers

Blake Bortles- Quarterback- Jacksonville Jaguars- It may be difficult for fantasy owners to trust Bortles every week as their starting quarterback but the last two weeks saw Bortles score over 30 fantasy points. Quarterback needy fantasy owners may want to take a chance on Bortles.

Landry Jones- Quarterback- Pittsburgh Steelers- Even though Landry Jones had a respectable week six after Michael Vick went out with an injury, Landry will only take the helm for another week or two until Big Ben is able to return. Until then, fantasy owners can take a shot on Jones if they need a quarterback as Jones scored over 16 fantasy points. Too bad no fantasy owner actually had him in their lineups.

Jeepers

Ben Watson- Tight End- New Orleans Saints- Through six games, Watson has 25 catches for 266 yards and two scores. Week six saw Watson score almost 20 fantasy points but fantasy owners should not come to expect that very often if at all again this season. Watson has always been more of a blocking tight end than a receiving tight end but nonetheless, fantasy owners shouldn't waste a waiver wire claim on him unless he's the best available tight end on the waiver wire and your starting tight end is on a bye.

Michael Floyd-Wide Receiver-Arizona Cardinals- This guy hasn't been relevant in fantasy football or the NFL over the last two seasons. On the season, Floyd has only 24 targets and 13 receptions for just over 150 yards and one touchdown. Don't let his big week six fool you. It was the first game all season where he scored double digit fantasy points and while he may end up having another big game or two, it isn't worth the single digit fantasy points you will get more often than not.
