With Week 6 coming to an exciting conclusion with another unexpected doubleheader, fantasy football managers have quickly set their sights Kiser stepped right back into an every snap role in Week 6, recording seven solo tackles and six assists. Is Boston Scott Viable With Miles Sanders Sidelined?

The bye weeks are starting to cause trouble for fantasy teams, so finding one-week replacements is a handy skill to have right now. Unfortunately, that's about all there is on the waiver wire these days.

Unless they've been dropped a few weeks ago by panicky fantasy GMs, high-upside players who have the potential to be long-term starters just aren't out there. Le'Veon Bell's value certainly jumped after the Kansas City Chiefs picked him up, but he's unlikely to be available in most leagues.

So we turn to some possible one-week wonders.

Here's how the Eagles can claim the NFC East title with 7 wins

  Here's how the Eagles can claim the NFC East title with 7 wins The Eagles have by far the toughest remaining schedule among their NFC East counterparts, so winning the division won't be easy.Still, the Eagles are just one half-game behind Dallas (2-3) with 11 games left. The Cowboys, meanwhile, just lost star quarterback Dak Prescott for the season after he suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his ankle.

Scott famously kept the Eagles ’ playoff hopes alive last season with a three-touchdown So while Scott isn’t a bad spot starter at RB2 in Week 7 , he doesn’t have a ton of upside.

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

Recommended bids based on a free agent acquisition budget (FAAB) of $100 for the season.

BEST BETS

RB Boston Scott, Philadelphia Eagles ($15). This is the week to grab a backup running back, especially if you have a banged-up starter on your roster. Miles Sanders will most likely miss Thursday's game (and possibly another), so Scott is in line to assume lead back duties. Corey Clement might also be worth a flier if you're desperate.

WR Keelan Cole, Jacksonville Jaguars ($13). With Jacksonville in catch-up mode, Cole hauled in six receptions for 143 yards. Yes, top receiver D.J. Chark wasn't 100% and rookie Laviska Shenault is the shiny new toy, but Cole has offered steady production and has scored in three of the Jags' six games.

No 'Thursday Night Football' NFL game for Week 6. Here's why.

  No 'Thursday Night Football' NFL game for Week 6. Here's why. The Bills were supposed to be hosting the Chiefs on "Thursday Night Football" for NFL Week 6, but COVID-related schedule changes pushed it to Monday.Except this week, there is no Josh Allen vs. Patrick Mahomes showdown on "Thursday Night Football.

WR Adam Humphries, Tennessee Titans ($10). Humphries returned from a week on the COVID-19/Reserve list to catch six passes for 100 yards and a TD as the Titans’ passing game was clicking on all cylinders. With QB Ryan Tannehill playing at such a high level, any of his receivers have a chance to shine.

QB Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins ($8). With a bye week to prepare, the Dolphins have made the commitment to give the No. 5 overall draft pick his first NFL start next week at home against the L.A. Rams. What a great way to gain some confidence. Ryan Fitzpatrick has been a decent fantasy starter to this point in the season, so a Justin Herbert-like debut for Tua is definitely possible.

REPLACEMENTS

RB Giovani Bernard, Cincinnati Bengals ($5). Bernard finished out Sunday's game after starter Joe Mixon left with a foot injury. He also ran for a touchdown earlier in the game before Mixon was hurt. They're really the only two running backs who've seen action for Cincinnati this season, so if Mixon is limited in any way, Bernard stands to benefit.

Chase Claypool, who is 'exactly what was needed here,' adds to Steelers' proud pedigree at wide receiver

  Chase Claypool, who is 'exactly what was needed here,' adds to Steelers' proud pedigree at wide receiver At 6-4 and 227 pounds, Chase Claypool is hard to miss. With a team-high six touchdowns, the rookie is making a big impression on the Steelers.How have they turned things around after missing the playoffs in consecutive seasons for just the second time this century? Exploiting one of the league's weakest schedules – their opponents own a collective .328 winning percentage – has certainly helped. The return of an elite defense, one that paces the league with 24 sacks, the past two seasons has been key. And, naturally, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's successful comeback from elbow surgery has been vital, too, after he missed most of the 2019 campaign.

These are the top waiver wire pickups for Week 7 of fantasy football . Ito Smith is my No. 1 waiver pickup for this week and is worth about 40% of your FAB budget. Every Tuesday go over players to add at every single position: QB, RB, WR, D/ST and even Kicker!

John Ross' role actually decreased after his Week 14 return from IR, as Tyler Washington played Philadelphia tough, taking it right down to the wire before the Eagles regained the lead Meanwhile, Boston Scott still increased his snap share after his impressive performance late in Week 14, as the

TE Anthony Firkser, Tennessee Titans ($4). A total of 14 different tight ends caught a touchdown pass on Sunday, so feel free to spin the roulette wheel on this week's hot hands. Firkser had the biggest day with eight catches for 113 yards and a score, but it came after starter Jonnu Smith left the game early with an ankle injury.

TE Dallas Goedert, Philadelphia Eagles ($4). Back this week from injured reserve, Goedert could still be a factor despite his broken thumb. QB Carson Wentz has had his ups and downs this season, but getting Goedert back into the mix should help.

TE Darren Fells, Houston Texans ($4). Starting for the second consecutive week with Jordan Akins out, Fells caught six of seven targets for 85 yards and a TD. Akins has yet to clear concussion protocol.

DEEP LEAGUES

RB Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens ($3). The Ravens are on bye this week, so Mark Ingram's ankle will have extra time to heal before a Week 8 date with the Steelers. But just in case...

TE Trey Burton, Indianapolis Colts ($2). Flashing back to his Philly Special days, the versatile Burton caught a TD pass and ran for a touchdown in Week 6. The only problem: the Colts are also on bye in Week 7.

Opinion: Buccaneers playing with fire by adding Antonio Brown
