Fantasy Football Sneaky Starts: Week 7


As injuries pile up and the bye weeks continue, all but the luckiest fantasy owners will at some point need to find the proverbial diamond in the rough -- a waiver wire or bench player who is capable of putting up some points in a pinch. This weekly feature is dedicated to that part of fantasy football. It's not pretty, but it's part of the game. 
Note: Matchups are important, and we use by-position Schedule-Adjusted Fantasy Points Allowed to evaluate those matchups. For an overview, click here.


It's Tebow Time, kids, so you might as well embrace it. He scored 17 fantasy points in a half of play against the Chargers in W5 and has had the bye week to prepare for the Dolphins, who have given up the 3rd-most Adjusted FP to QBs this season.
I listed McCoy here last week and he came through with a pair of TDs to go along with 215 yards passing. He is QB13 in terms of fantasy points per game, yet he's still available in 73% of ESPN leagues. The Seahawks have given up the 8th-most Adjusted FP to QB this year and will be without their best cornerback, Marcus Trufant.
The Raiders aren't great against the pass (5th-most Adjusted FP allowed to QBs) and Cassel has seven TDs and only one INT in his last three games.
