Week 7: Bargain Hunter

Consider using these players in weekly salary cap leagues. This week's picks include John Skelton, Vick Ballard, Felix Jones, David Wilson, and Randall Cobb.

After racking up three long-distance touchdowns in the last two weeks, Josh "Flash" Gordon has exploded onto the fantasy scene (which is something fantasy owners didn't expect from anyone in Cleveland, much less a rookie who was a Supplemental Draft pick). Gordon's big-play ability makes him an intruiging prospect worth owning in any fantasy format, especially Yahoo! Salary Cap leagues as he is still a solid bargain at $8.30. With his value steadily increasing, salary cap owners need to lock Gordon down now at a low price before he is no longer a bargain.

Chandler has proven this season that he can exploit favorable matchups -- see his two-touchdown performance against New England in Week 4 -- making him a worthwhile pickup in an enticing Week 7 matchup against the Tennessee Titans (who have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season).

The 6-foot-7 Iowa product is not much of a bargain in Yahoo! Salary Cap leagues at $8.49, but favorable matchup makes Chandler worth a one week pickup in salary cap leagues.
