Anytime a superstar falls in the NFL, there will be fantasy owners ready to pilfer his replacement. Those that took a stab at Jacoby Jones last weekend will want to do the same in Week 7.

Jones isn't the only player that had a fruitful game last week that should carry over to this one. He is joined by some other Week 6 studs that I am confident will continue rolling into this weekend. 

It' all about playing the hot hand in fantasy circles. The difference between a title and last place could be a few chances taken on some waiver-wire studs. 

Here are a few players that should be highlighted as you rummage through the free players available in most leagues. 


Jacoby Jones

The loss of Andre Johnson is huge for owners that were fortunate enough to ride his early season delights. His hamstring injury seems to be coming along well, and he should see action by Week 8 according to a rotoworld report. 

The injury has left the Texans to scramble to find the receiver willing to take on the load. Last week that was Jones. He should get the same treatment against the Titans in Week 7. Feel free to enjoy the spoils of Johnspn's hamstring injury. 


Brent Celek

If you are in dire need of a tight end. Look no further than Brent Celek. The Eagles big man has been targeted for prime receptions, but has not always delivered with sure hands, until last weekend. 

The Eagles end is now ready to deliver with pivotal red zone receptions, and you should get on board while the getting's good. 


James Jones


This is a clear bye week option at receiver. There is no more feast or famine receiver in the game. Last week his sole reception went for a touchdown. 

At the very least, his worst games will deliver a score, so there is that to rally behind for his owners. Aaron Rodgers likes to spread it around, but Jones can be counted on to receive targets in vital parts of the field.
