Already we are at the near-halfway point of the 2016 fantasy football season as Week 7 beckons.  Let's get right down to the hot wqaiver wire adds for this week.

Joe Flacco:  Carson Palmer just got done toying with the New York Jets secondary and pretty much any passer that has gone against their putrid secondary (yes with Darelle Revis still there) have put up big fantasy football numbers.  Now Flacco gets to step into that cushy spot in Week 7 and keep in mind the change at offensive coordinator already has the Ravens throwing more than before.

Brian Hoyer:  Once again we have Hoyer here to try and finally convince you to pick him up.  Hoyer already won me a game in the Experts League so I put my money where my mouth was when Drew Brees was on a bye.  With 2 TD's in each of three of his last four games, Hoyer has been terrific.  Now with Cameron Meredith joining Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal, and Zach Miller as prime offensie weapons, Hoyer should continue to put up big numbers every week.

Cameron Meredith:  Speaking of Meredith, he too is back on this list after catching 11 more passes last Sunday to go with the 9 he hauled in the week before.  This is some PPR story that is developing here and with Eddie Royal injured, Meredith should continue to see a boatload of targets.

Kenny Britt:  Yes we have been by Britt a million times before but Case Keenum looks more comfortable then ever coming off a 3-passing TD day.  Britt was the main target in that breakout and remember that he was once a highly sought after draft pick coming out of college.

Devontae Booker:  If Booker slipped through the waiver wire cracks last week in your league, make sure it doesn't happen again.  Booker is already eating into half of C.J. Anderson's workload and that could grow even more considering that Gary Kubiak has endorsed him every step of the way.  High upside here.

Jay Ajayi:  Yeah when you run for over 200 yards, everyone is going to take notice.  Even if it is someone so previously mediocre as Ajayi has been in his still young career.  The Dolphins seems to prefer Ajayi at this point and that goes for despite the fact Arian Foster returned last week.  While Foster will likely still be the third down back, Ajayi is becoming a RB 2 overnight.

Ty Montgomery:  With Randall Cobb and Davante Adams both beat up, it was Ty Montgomery who came out of nowhere to catch a million balls last week.  Montgomery can also run the football like Cobb and when Aaron Rodgers is your QB, big things happen.

Dion Lewis:  While he won't be ready this week, pass-catching New England Patriots back Dion Lewis is getting set to return within the next month from his ACL injury.  Lewis was a breakout star last season before going down with the tear and he would instantly become a major PPR weapon right out of the gate. Always grab a returning player a week early rather then a week late.

Hunter Henry:  If anyone foolishly dropped Henry in your league when Antonio Gates return last Sunday, by all means snatch him up.  Even with Gates back, Henry was the focal point of the Philip Rivers passing attack and there are always big numbers to put up in that situation.

Baltimore Ravens Defense:  Yes the Ravens were just schredded by the New York Giants' previously struggling passing attack last week but they get the brutal New York Jets and turnover-prone Ryan Fitzpatrick this Sunday.  With Fitzpatrick on the other side, there are always some interceptions up for grabs out there.
