Alshon Jeffery- WR- Eagles

Eagles' quarterback Carson Wentz will be without Zach Ertz and Miles Sanders Thursday night, but Alshon Jeffrey has a chance to make his 2020 debut. It seems like Jeffrey has been on the cusp of playing in last two weeks, and since the Eagle are playing on a short week, Jeffrey may not play Thursday either. But sooner than later, Jeffrey will make his debut. Fantasy owners should expect him to make an immediate impact for a team that has struggled to find any consistency at the wide out position. You can get him for a buck today.

Anthony Firkson- TE- Titans

Harvard graduate Anthony Firkson had the game of his life last weekend against the Texans after the starting tight end Jonnu Smith exited the game with an ankle injury. Firkson recorded eight receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown in the overtime victory. Depending on Smith's status for Sunday, Firkson might be a player worth starting in week 7. It's hard to predict his role moving forward in the season, but he's worth taking a risk on for a dollar.

Boston Scott- RB- Eagles

Since Miles Sanders is going to sit out on Thursday night, Boston Scott might be a player worth starting this week. In 2019, Scott had four touchdowns against the Giants over 250 total yards. Scott hasn't been the third down back that some fantasy owners were hoping for in 2020, but he should have a chance to make his case this Thursday. The Giants have given up the 13th most fantasy points to running backs this season. If you must take a chance this week, I would put my dollar on Scott.

Kyle Allen- QB- Washington

If you're a fantasy manager in desperate need of a quarterback this week, Kyle Allen might be your free agent. Washington faces the Cowboys, whose defense has given up the 10th most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Last week against the Giants, Allen had 31 completions for 280 yards and two scores. Allen is not a quarterback that I would hold on my roster past this week. But he is worth a buck if you need to find a starting quarterback for week 7.

JaMycal Hasty- RB- 49ers

With Raheem Mostert likely landing on the IR list, fantasy owners should look at JaMycal Hasty this week in free agency. Jerick McKinnon will be the starting running back, but both Hasty and Jeff Wilson Jr. will be on the roster when 49ers face the Patriots on Sunday. Hasty rushed nine times for 37 yards last week against the Rams, while Wilson was inactive. You never know who head coach Kyle Shanahan might use in each game, but Hasty is a good dollar free agent to take a risk on for week 7.

Christian Kirk- WR- Cardinals

The third-year player out of Texas A&M, Christian Kirk, is starting to produce on the field like many fantasy owners predicted. On Monday night against the Cowboys, he had two receptions for 86 yards and two touchdowns. The Cardinals face the Seahawks this week, whose defense has allowed the most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. Kirk wont' be available too long if he continues to play like he has in the last two games. Get him now for week 7.
