Week 6 of #Fantasy Football produced a few high scoring players and a couple of surprises. Some players who appeared on this list last week, including Nelson Agholor, immediately made an impact for fantasy owners who inserted them into the starting lineup. Now it's Week 7, and there's a new set of players that fantasy owners should be targeting. Let's take a look at which #Waiver Wire targets fantasy owners should be adding in week 7.

1. RB Orleans Darkwa (4.3 percent ownership)

In a shocking twist, the New York Giants went on the road and defeated the Denver Broncos as 13.5-point underdogs. A huge reason why they were able to do that was their rushing game, which came alive for the first time all season.

The man who led the charge was Orleans Darkwa, who ran for 117 yards on 21 carries. Last week, it looked like Wayne Gallman would be the man in New York, but Darkwa appears to be the new lead dog in this offense. He's now scored 12 fantasy points in two straight weeks, and it's time to start taking him seriously. Grab Darkwa off the waiver wire if you can.

2. WR Jordan Matthews (23.6 percent ownership)

Jordan Matthews wasn't exactly lighting up the scoreboard when he was healthy in Buffalo, but he was productive. Now that he's on the verge of returning from injury, it's time to snag the Bills receiver from the waiver wire. Charles Clay, the team's leading receiver, went down with an injury in Week 4, which means Matthews will probably become Tyrod Taylor's primary target. If he can play in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Matthews is worth a start, as the Bucs have the worst pass defense in the #NFL.

3. TE George Kittle (9.2 percent ownership)

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle made an appearance on this list last week and he appears here again. If you are looking for a tight end right now, this is the guy to own, especially if C.J. Beathard continues to play quarterback for the 49ers. They both played at Iowa and already have chemistry with each other, so fantasy owners can expect decent production from Kittle, especially if he is targeted eight times a game like he was last week.

4. RB Dion Lewis (6.5 percent ownership)

It looks like Dion Lewis is finally back on the fantasy scene after he scored 11 fantasy points against the New York Jets. A lot of his workload came about because of a Mike Gillislee fumble, but that doesn't discount the fact that he rushed well all day. In addition, his volume has steadily increased over the past three weeks and Gillislee may still be in Belichick's doghouse, especially after that fumble last week. Remember that Lewis was one of the top scorers in the first half of fantasy last year, and add him from the waiver wire in Week 7 if you can.

5. Dolphins D/ST (9.0 percent ownership)

The Jets haven't played the worst team in the league all year, but that shouldn't stop fantasy owners from starting a very strong Miami Dolphins defense against Josh McCown. The Dolphins defense essentially won the game against the Titans in Week 5, and then managed to stop the high flying Falcons offense in Week 6. Now Miami will have a much easier time stopping a far weaker Jets offense. Add the Dolphins defense as a streaming option from the waiver wire if you can.
