Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Here is our weekly look on who is hot, who is not and the best free agent pickups that are available in most leagues in fantasy football

Hello Fantasy Football Fans!

Welcome to the 7th week of the waiver wire 'who is hot and who is not' column of the year. I thank everyone for reading and hopefully this will assist your team on the way to the playoffs.  I won't list anyone who was on previous lists, but if  Keenan Allen, Zac Stacy, Andre Ellington, Nick Foles or Harry Douglas are still out there, please do yourself a favor and grab them.  Let’s get to the list!

Who is Hot:

  • Eagles QB – It is fantasy gold and top 5 in points this year.
  • Zac Stacy – He has grabbed the RB1 job on the Rams, but does have a tough schedule.
  • Brandon Jacobs – He was partying like it was 2008 but they have no one else.
  • Jordy Nelson – He is now clearly the WR1 in the fantasy world.
  • Cam Newton – He had a huge week and gets the leaky Rams defense next.
  • Vernon Davis – Kaep' has finally figured out the best way to make himself look good.
  • Stevan Ridley – It looks like he has finally got his job back.
  • Arian Foster – The team is struggling but he is getting a ton of touches.
  • Philip Rivers – He continues to put up QB1 numbers.
  • Keenan Allen – He has emerged as the WR1 target with the Chargers and doesn't look like a rookie.

Who is not:

  • DeMarco Murray – Another year, another major injury.
  • Eli Manning – He is fantasy irrelevant.
  • Calvin Johnson – Trying to play hurt and is a shell of himself.
  • Randall Cobb – He looks to be out 6-8 weeks.
  • Aaron Rodgers – He is having an average year and with more Lacy will come less passes.
  • Marques Colston – It looks like father time has caught up to him.
  • Roddy White – He played hurt and now missing more games.
  • Steven Jackson – Still not practicing!
  • Tavon Austin – With only 4 snaps he does not fit into the power offense the Rams are now running.
  • Tom Brady – He is another overrated fantasy QB living by his name.
  • C.J. Spiller – He is not getting the touches while struggling with injuries.
  • Ray Rice – He is getting the touches, but it looks like the wear and tear has caught up to him.
  • Trent Richardson – He continues to be a role RB at best in the Colts offense without the TD’s.
  • Chris Johnson – He has also hit the wall and is not startable.
