- KC Joyner, NFL Insider
For fantasy owners, wide receiver and tight end injuries were the biggest story of Week 6. DeSean Jackson, Malcom Floyd, Eddie Royal, Antonio Gates and Chris Cooley all suffered injuries of varying severity that may impact their availability for Week 7 and beyond.
My weekly column always aims to help in cases of this nature. Here are seven wide receivers and three tight ends who should be able to alleviate some of the fantasy-point pains that go along with player injuries. In addition, there is a high-upside quarterback and a pass-catching running back worth picking up in point-per-reception (PPR) leagues.
KC Joyner reacts to a rash of injuries among wide receivers and tight ends by finding waiver-wire candidates who will make for more-than-adequate fill-ins. The list includes Patrick Crayton, who stands to benefit from the Chargers' injuries.
