That means it's up to Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith moving forward to carry the workload in the backfield.

So what should you expect from Ito Smith? According to the Atlanta Falcons Target/Touch leaders, the amount of touches headed Smith's way will mean that he needs to be rostered in all leagues.

<![CDATA[Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Targets Week 7]]>Once again another week of football comes to a close, and already we are on to the next! Week seven is here folks and its time to hit the waiver wire and grab a wide receiver or two.

Jermaine Kearse is a great guy to start with. The New York Jets will be looking to target Kearse heavily now that Quincy Enunwa is out with an ankle injury. During Sunday's game against the Colts, Kearse had 94 yards on the day and completed nine out of ten targets. Excellent numbers from a receiver that is owned in 3% of leagues. There is no official time table on when Enunwa will return, but he will not be taking the field this week. Kearse might well be shouldering the entire load this coming week, if you are in need he is a great grab for a flex position.

<![CDATA[Frank Gore RB, Week 7 Waiver Target]]>Fantasy owners looking to bolster their backfield should take a closer look at what is going on with the Miami Dolphins. Frank Gore just had his first 100 yard day this season rushing for 101 yards on just 15 attempts with one catch for 18 yards.

Perhaps even more interesting is how the backfield broke down in Week 6 with Kenyan Drake getting 17 total touches for 57 yards rushing and 4 catches for 21 yards recieving.

<![CDATA[Zach Pascal or Chester Rogers to replace Hilton?]]>T.Y. Hilton has an injury to his hamstring that could keep him out for weeks moving forward. It is almost certain that Hilton will be out this week on Thursday Night Football against the Patriots.

So then the question becomes, who to pick up to replace him on the Indianapolis Colts: Zach Pascal or Chester Rogers?

<![CDATA[Keke Coutee's fantasy value moving forward]]>Keke Coutee has a break-out week in Week 4 totaling 11 catches for 109 yards on 15 targets. With wide-out Will Fuller hit with the injury bug yet again, the Houston Texans turned to Keke to help shoulder the load.

Make no mistake about it, Keke will be a player you want to roster now and should be a waiver priority across all fantasy leagues. He lead the team in targets with 15.

<![CDATA[Waiver Wire Week 5 Pickups ]]>Now that week four is wrapped up, we are full steam ahead into week five! By now you know that hitting the waiver wire and grabbing the best available guys is an absolute must! Fantasy football gets harder each and every year, whether its from injuries, suspensions, or just plain bad luck and staying on top of your team is necessary. Here are this week's top waive wire players to target.

Let's start down south with the Tampa Bay Bucs and Jameis Winston. Winston has officially been named the starter for week five and he is an absolute steal at this point! He is owned in 13% of leagues, so if you need a quarterback look no further. Over the years Winston has had some good games and some down right dreadful ones, he shouldn't be used as your number one. If you are dealing with a bye week this week or next, Winston should be a good fill in. He will put the ball in the air enough times with Evans and Jackson out there to haul it in.

<![CDATA[Waiver Wire Targets Week 4]]>Welcome to the start of bye weeks! Now is the time to snatch some hot players who are available and will be good enough to fill in for a week. The season goes by so quickly and some fantasy teams are falling apart at this point. Week four is here and its time to see what some new guys have to offer.

Let's just get the hottest pickup of the week out of the way, none other than Baker Mayfield. Mayfield took the field on Thursday night and gave the Cleveland Browns their first win in a very, very long time! Baker looked calm and very tuned in from the moment he was on the field. He threw for 201 yards and completed 17 out of 23 passes, not too shabby! The upside to Mayfield is limitless and you should grab him if you have the chance. He is owned in 13% of leagues and was started in 8%, obviously his start percentage will increase now that he has been named the official start for week four.

<![CDATA[6 Wide Receivers to Target for Week 3]]>Time to hit the waiver wire again before week three starts on Thursday!

<![CDATA[Top Wide Receivers to Target for Week 2]]>Its time to hit the waiver wire folks! The first week of the 2018 football season is in the books and its time to capitalize on the hot players of the week.

Ted Ginn on the New Orleans Saints had a nice start to the season hauling in five catches for 68 yards with a touchdown. Ginn was the third most targeted player on the Saints coming in behind Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara. If you are looking to grab a receiver Ginn is a great option. He is owned in 44% of leagues and being started in 33%.
