Waiver Wire--Week 7
James Morgan, QB-Bowling Green
Morgan has improved his passing yards, completion percentage, and passing touchdowns for three consecutive weeks and could be an effective QB2 in deep FBS leagues with the Falcons’ upcoming schedule.
Terrell Newby, RB-Nebraska
As long as Newby is producing, it will be difficult to keep him off the field. In the past two weeks, the senior running back has carried the ball 49 times for 242 yards and three touchdowns.
Joe Williams, RB-Utah
Williams returned from a four-week retirement and carried the ball 34 times for 179 yards and a touchdown at Oregon State in his first week back with the team. The Utes’ backfield has been decimated by injuries and Williams assumed the starting role by default, by he will likely keep it as long as he’s producing.
Dillon Birden, RB-Houston
Birden has now scored at least one touchdown in four consecutive games and has earned extensive playing time over the past month. Plus, teammate Duke Catalon may be out a bit longer due to a concussion he suffered a couple of weeks ago.
Jalen Rhodes, RB-UTSA
We had high hopes for senior running back Jarveon Williams, but he’s being outplayed by sophomore Jalen Rhodes, who has 14 or more touches in five of six games this season.
Samuel Stewart, RB-Rice
Over the past two weeks, Stewart has carried the ball 36 times for 209 yards and two touchdowns, and has added ten receptions and two receiving touchdowns in the passing game.
Devon Spalding, RB-Central Michigan
After rushing for 135 yards in the season opener, Spalding only totaled 131 rushing yards in the next four games. The Chippewas have emphasized the run the past two weeks and Spalding has produced, carrying the ball 45 times for 281 yards and two touchdowns.
Aeris Williams, RB-Mississippi State
Williams is more of a short-term addition, but it seems like teammate Brandon Holloway may not be back for this week’s matchup against Kentucky. Last Friday, Williams ran the ball 21 times for 82 yards in a 28-21 OT loss at BYU.
Bug Howard, WR-North Carolina
Not only did Howard catch ten passes for 156 yards in Saturday’s 20-13 win at Miami, but he should have a more significant role in the offense now that Mack Hollins has been lost for the season due to injury.
