Week 6 is in the books and it's time to check the waiver wire list for possible bye week and injury replacements. Here is the top 5 five list of possible waiver wire studs for Week 7.

WR Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers

Allen may not be available in your league but he is only 38% owned per Yahoo Sports so he makes the top of the list. Allen is already looking good as a rookie and should only get better. Allen is currently second on the Chargers offense in receiving yards and is rising up the board in receptions and targets. Grab him if you can.

RB Joseph Randle, Dallas Cowboys

I was a big fan of Randle coming out of Oklahama State and he made my rookie dynasty list. With DeMarco Murray nursing a knee injury, Randle got the start and although he didn't put up big numbers he did punch in a touchdown. Given Murray's history, he is definitely worth owning in most leagues.

TE Joseph Fauria, Detroit Lions

It's a stat popularly quoted but it's worth reminding here. The undrafted free agent tight end has more receiving touchdowns than teammate Megatron with 5. Combine that with the best touchdowns dances in football right now and he is quickly becoming a must own in all fantasy leagues. On the year, he has seven receptions for 66 yards and five touchdowns.

RB Andre Ellington, Arizona Cardinals

Ellington is only 37% owned per Yahoo Sports so he makes the list again. He is definitely worth a snag in PPR leagues if he is available. The uber talented rookie is seeing his playing time rise despite indications from Bruce Arians that he might have a snap count. Ellington rushed seven times for 56 yards and a touchdown while catching five passes for 36 yards on Sunday. The rookie is the real deal so grab him while he is still available.

RB Zac Stacy, St. Louis Rams

Stacy was another running back that made my rookie dynasty list and he is now starting to see some significant playing time. Stacy is already second on the rushing list with 33 carries for 161 yards. He hasn't yet found the end zone but it's only a matter of time. He is by far the most talented of the Rams running backs and should continue to see the bulk of the carries going forward.
