The 2010 NFL season has seen many new players making a name for themselves as well as some legends proving that they still belong.
There are a ton of hidden gems still available on waiver-wire's in many leagues, that can be valuable assets to your squad.
The following "sleepers" will have big games in the upcoming weeks.
Add these individuals to your team where needed ASAP.
Week 7 Opponent : Oakland Raiders
In the last two weeks Jabar Gaffney has gone up against two of the best defenses in the National Football League, performing exceptionally well.
Against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5, Gaffney had nine catches for 87 yards. In Week 6 against the New York Jets Jabar made six receptions for 81 yards.
He's a big-time playmaker who has never had the opportunity to play a larger role. Now that he receives more attention from his quartberback he's able to be more effective.
Add Gaffney to your roster as he has continued to progress throughout the season.
Week 7 Opponent : Denver Broncos
Louis Murphy is a rising young superstar at the wide receiver position that has had a few rough outings this season.
From here on out I'm expecting big things from Louis Murphy, the 6'2'' Florida product with a bright future. In Week 7 he'll be going up against a Denver Broncos defense that has been pretty weak this year. Expect Murphy to get some self-redemption after a pathetic one-reception, four yard game.
Week 7 Opponent : Kansas City Cheifs
Due to the lack of offensive production in general for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Thomas has zero touchdowns so far this season. But, throughout the season he's been catching the football with regularity.
With a tough schedule ahead, Thomas will be sure to step up when it seems like nobody else will. Expect a 100 yard performance and his first touchdown of the 2010 season.
Week 7 Opponent : Chicago Bears
Anthony Armstrong played a significant role in Washington's Week 5 overtime nail-biter against the Green Bay Packers. Armstrong made three catches for 84 yards and a touchdown. The 48-yard touchdown he scored was crucial to the Redskins victory.
In Week 6 he was a little less productive with five receptions for 46 yards, but his role in the Redskins offense is increasing by the game.
This Sunday, against the Bears, should be his breakthrough game. If your in need of a wide receiver Armstrong is a great pickup, only being owned by 2.1% of fantasy users. The upcoming weeks will be his best games of the season.
Week 7 Opponent : Pittsburgh Steelers
If you want a steady guy on your roster, add Davone Bess. He is becoming a prime target in the Dolphins offense and will be a consistent player to have on your fantasy team throughout the course of the season.
In his last three games he has made a combined 19 receptions for 219 yards and two touchdowns. This dominance is expected to continue with Brandon Marshall gaining a majority of the attention from opposing defenses.
Week 7 Opponent : New York Giants
It may be tough to get Roy Williams with 64.4% of fantasy football users owning him, but if he's available don't think twice.
In the last three games the Dallas Cowboys have thrown for eight touchdowns, while Roy Williams has caught five of those. Roy has the hot hand right now for the Cowboys. Expect that to continue with noone else on the roster playing at the caliber of number 11 right now.
Many people thought Williams would not be effective this year with the addition of Dez Bryant, but right now he is the most productive player on his football team.
Week 7 Opponent : Arizona Cardinals
Mike Williams had a career performance in week 6, against the Chicago Bears, catching 10 passes for 123 yards. He has failed to reach the end zone this season, but expect Williams to be a constant red zone threat in the future.
With the next two games being against the Cardinals and the Raiders, expect this 6'5 pure athlete out of USC to be a prime target of Matt Hasselbeck.
Week 7 Opponent : Jacksonville Jaguars
Tony Moeaki is an unknown in the NFL for the time being, but don't expect that to last. He's been extremely consistent from game to game and deserves a larger role in the Kansas City Chiefs offense.
Will that time come for Moeaki? Yes, the way he's been playing. In five games as a rookie, Moeaki has made 18 receptions for 194 yards and two touchdowns.
If you're in the need of a tight-end, be sure to pick-up Moeaki who will see an increased role in the Chiefs offense as the season continues.
Week 7 Opponent : Cincinnati Bengals
Michael Jenkins was absent from the lineup for the first five weeks due to a shoulder injury. He returned in week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles and had an explosive game, catching five passes for 99 yards.
It's apparent that Jenkins and quarterback Matt Ryan have great chemistry, and you can expect performances like that to continue for the remainder of the season.
Week 7 Opponent : New Orleans Saints
No matter who the quarterback is for the Cleveland Browns, Benjamin Watson has performed consistently in the recent weeks.
In Week 6 Watson was targeted by the rookie quarterback Colt McCoy numerous times against the tough defense of the Pittsburgh Steelers. You can expect this to continue into Week 7 against another talented defense in the New Orleans Saints.
He's coming off of his best game of the season with six catches for 88 yards and a touchdown. Another performance like this is highly likely.
Week 7 Opponent : San Diego Chargers
Aaron Hernandez's production in the New England offense will increase dramatically without Moss, so don't miss out on adding this progressing player.
Hernandez is owned by 49.1% of ESPN fantasy football teams, so you are extremely fortuante if you can add this versatile tight-end to your squad.
Week 7 Opponent : Bye
In four out of the last five games, Pettigrew has made at least six catches in each outing, earning over 60 yards in three of those.
He's becoming a weekly weapon in this offense and it will not stop anytime soon with tight-ends, in general, seeing an increased role this season.
Week 7 Opponent : Baltimore Ravens
In the last three games Steve Johnson has scored four touchdowns. He's on a hot streak and this streak will continue against a tough Baltimore Ravens defense.
Yes the Ravens defense is one of the best in the league, but don't be afraid to add Johnson and start him this week. He's an elusive receiver who can create his own space. Expect his best game of the season, and his entire career, receiving over 100 yards for the first time.
Week 7 Opponent : San Diego Chargers
In Week 6 Deion Branch made his return to New England, re-joining forces with Tom Brady, and he did not disappoint.
Branch made nine catches for 98 yards and a touchdown, with a majority of his production being in the fourth quarter to help the Patriots win the game.
Branch and Brady seem to have the same chemistry they once had when they won a Super Bowl together several years ago.
In the fourth quarter when they need to score a touchdown Deion Branch is the first guy Brady looks for because he is the most reliable receiver on the Patriots. This is good for fantasy owners because you can expect a touchdown out of this guy every other game, if not more.
Week 7 Opponent : Jacksonville Jaguars
The Chiefs got off to a great start, 4-0, but have struggled the past two games, losing to the Colts and Texans.
Although the Chiefs lost in Week 6 to the Texans, Cassel had some valuable fantasy numbers going 20-29 for 201 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. Cassel has been more intelligent with the football in the last two weeks, not throwing any picks in either game.
In the next three weeks the schedule gets easier, facing the Jaguars, Bills and Raiders so Cassel will be a good pick-up and a good quarterback to start.
Cassel is only owned by 10.5% of ESPN fantasy football teams, so he is a great replacement for any injured QB's you may have.
