Week 7 Waiver Wire: Top Pickups
Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports
DeMarco Murray's injury has potentially opened up a huge opportunity for rookie Joseph Randle in Week 7.

Consider this the calm before the storm.

Week 7 in the NFL has just two teams heading into their byes—New Orleans and Oakland—but the heaviest bye weeks in fantasy football history are on tap the following two Sundays.

That puts a huge onus on winning the waiver-wire battle this week because it is going to be real competitive next Tuesday night.

A well-positioned team can suck up "market share" when six teams are off in both Week 8 and Week 9. That is the most teams idle in a given week in NFL history. The next three weeks will have half of the league's 32 teams off with byes.

Some good fantasy crunch-time options are going to be dropped to deal with these byes. Adjust your rosters, via trades or waivers, to take take advantage of that.

We break down the top waiver options for Week 7 in this six-part slideshow. Enjoy.
