Week 7 of AAF football is upon us. With this comes Johnny Footballs return to our televisions! It's getting harder and harder to find any standout wire picks that can really help a season. Last week we struck out on Pirce and Saxton. Mullaney, on the other hand, had 6 catches on 7 targets for 73 yards. If for some reason he's still out in your player pool, go scoop him up. This week we're really digging in the trash bin, but maybe we can uncover one more diamond.
Manziel so far since college, has not been good at football. On the other hand, the AAF has a shortage of QBs who are good at football. I don't have a lot of stats here to back this one up but if you need a QB as bad as Memphis does, this is a flyer worth taking. There's a good supporting cast in Memphis and Hackenberg is the only other healthy QB on the roster.
Yes, this is the former Atlanta Falcon and yes he did get signed by Salt Lake. Branden Oliver went down for this team 2 weeks ago and now there is a crater for their RB depth chart. Bouganon had 19 carries last week but up until this point, he's only shown himself to be a plower. Nothing special. Ward was good enough to get some run in the NFL and could take this backfield as early as this week.
L' Damian Washington
Washington broke out in a big way last week. He dominated to the tune of 4 catches on 10 targets for 128 yards, 2 touchdowns, and a 2 point conversion. This is my top waiver add this week and should immediately slide into a flex spot on any fantasy team. Perez is back under center but he looked as good as he did in week 1 and may be primed for a turnaround. Perez would also be worth picking up for this offense if you need a sure thing with limited upside.
As always, follow me on Twitter @HessFootball for more AAF, NBA, and NFL fantasy coverage! Good luck this week, let's go out and win these championships over here on Fantasyknuckleheads!
