College Fantasy Football: Week 7 Emergency Starters

This list was originally designed to assist fantasy owners with injury-riddled rosters, bye-week dilemmas, and unfavorable matchups, but the Emergency Starters has evolved into our Waiver Wire 2.0.  Over the past six weeks, many players listed in our Emergency Starters earned spots in our Waiver Wire report the following week, so don’t underestimate their long-term value. 

We appreciate the commitment that Steven Lassan of Athlon Sports has made to contribute to this valuable piece.
