Need to improve your fantasy team? Each week, NFL.com will offer up 10 players to target off the waiver wire to help you in that quest for a league championship. The number listed in parenthesis is the percentage of NFL.com leagues that the player is still a free agent.
Tim Tebow, QB, Broncos (67.5 percent)
It's Tebow time! The Florida product played less than a half against the Chargers in Week 5, but he still scored more than 15 fantasy points. Tebow, who scored more fantasy points than any other player in the final three weeks of 2011, is now the starter for coach John Fox and has a great matchup against the Dolphins in Week 7. He needs to be added in all fantasy leagues moving forward.
Carson Palmer, QB, Raiders (99.2 percent):
The trade that sent Palmer to Oakland puts the veteran quarterback back on the fantasy football radar. While he won't put up the same sort of huge numbers be did during his salad days with the Bengals, Palmer is an experienced veteran who finished 13th in fantasy points at his position in 2010. Consider him a viable No. 2 option and matchup-based starter once he knocks the rust off.
Jackie Battle, RB, Chiefs (80.9 percent)
The Chiefs had a bye in Week 6, so Battle is still a free agent in many leagues. He looked solid against the Colts in Week 5, rushing for 119 yards in the contest. While he won't be the next Jamaal Charles from a fantasy perspective, Battle looks like the best back on the Chiefs roster ahead of Thomas Jones. His next game is an extremely favorable one against the Raiders in Week 7.
Montario Hardesty, RB, Browns (98.5 percent)
Hardesty could end up seeing more work in the offense of coach Pat Shurmur in the event that Peyton Hillis is forced into a more limited role due to hamstring issues. That was the case in Week 6, as Hardesty saw 13 touches compared to just six for Hillis. Whether you need to handcuff Hillis or simply need a running back to roll the dice on, Hardesty is well worth a look off the waiver wire.
Demaryius Thomas, WR, Broncos (99.8 percent):
The Broncos dealt Brandon Lloyd to the Rams in a deadline move, so Thomas will have a chance to earn a more prominent role in the offense moving forward. If Eric Decker isn't a free agent in your league and you need a wideout, Thomas is now worth a look in all formats with 12-plus teams. Remember, the talented Georgia Tech product was a first-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft.
Earnest Graham, RB, Buccaneers (84.7 percent)
LeGarrette Blount could be out of action for another week due to an injured knee, so Graham needs to be added in all formats. Graham, a fantasy sleeper during the 2007 season, looked good against the Saints with 109 yards on the ground. He'll be well worth an add as a handcuff or in most leagues with 12-plus teams this week. Graham goes up against the Bears in London next on the schedule.
DeMarco Murray, RB, Cowboys (89.2 percent)
With the status of Felix Jones in question due to a serious ankle sprain, it's possible that Murray will see a greater role in the Cowboys offense. The rookie out of Oklahoma appears to be next in line for work ahead of Tashard Choice, and playing in an explosive unit makes Murray an interesting option in fantasy land. He'll be one of the most popular pickups in the majority of leagues this week.
James Jones, WR, Packers (80.3 percent)
Jordy Nelson has become the clear-cut No. 2 wideout in Green Bay from a fantasy perspective, but Jones has made some noise in recent weeks. In his last three games, the veteran has a combined 223 yards and found the end zone three times. It also doesn't hurt that he plays in an explosive offense led by the league's best fantasy quarterback in Aaron Rodgers. Add Jones if you lack wide receiver depth.
Greg Little, WR, Browns (97.1 percent)
Coach Pat Shurmur announced last week that Little had earned a starting role, and he responded with six catches and 72 yards in a loss to the Raiders. The rookie out of North Carolina also caught six passes in Week 4 before the team's bye, so he's instantly the wideout to own in Cleveland. He's not going to put up huge numbers, but Little's upside and this depth-chart promotion make him viable.
Fred Davis, TE, Redskins (67.2 percent)
Davis was dropped in a lot of leagues after posting mediocre numbers before the Redskins' bye week, but he now needs to be added once again. The Southern California product put up six catches for 95 yards in a loss to the Eagles, and the finger injury suffered by Chris Cooley makes Davis the main tight end in the offense. Davis has the tools to be a No. 1 fantasy option in the weeks to come.
