Now that we’re on the back half of the 2013 fantasy football season, waiver wire adds become increasingly important. Getting the correct adds to fill your teams needs will be the difference between making a postseason run, remaining in front of the pack or sitting way back and ultimately failing to reach the playoffs. It’s time to get momentum rolling and giving the following adds an opportunity will enhance your chance of making the postseason. After all, that’s what the regular season is for, playing well enough to reach the second season to win it all.   Chris Ogbonnaya: RB, Cleveland Browns The dual-threat talent of Chris Ogbonnaya has really helped Cleveland’s offense find balance this season. Regardless of who’s at quarterback, Ogbonnaya has done rather well since Trent Richardson was traded away. Totaling 53 yards in Week 3, Ogbonnaya hit 48 total yards and a score in Week 4′s win over Cincinnati. Then in Week 6 he accounted for 85 yards and another score. Expect Ogbonnaya to remain a strong aspect of Cleveland’s offense moving forward.   Dallas Clark: TE, Baltimore Ravens For depth purposes, Dallas Clark is a nice add. With bye weeks continuing through October and November, having Clark is a strong fit to fill tight end and flex spots moving forward. For one, he has been targeted 35 times and is coming off his best performance of 81 yards on four catches and a score versus Green Bay. Although he’s 34 years old, Clark remains a dependable veteran and his presence gives Joe Flacco another target. Factor in Baltimore’s ground game and Clark will also benefit from play-action when contributing.   New Orleans Saints Defense Despite the Saints giving up the game-winning score to New England on Sunday, Rob Ryan has this defense playing extremely well. After ranking basically dead last in every category last season, the Saints have made a significant turnaround. Allowing just a 59.7 completion percentage, New Orleans has eight picks, 20 sacks and has only given up seven passing scores. Ryan’s defense also didn’t allow more than 18 points in a game through New Orleans’ 5-0 start. Even though 30 were given up against Brady and the Pats, the Saints won’t see another high-powered offense until Dallas in Week 10.   Follow John on Twitter @Rozum27 The post Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Key adds for Week 7 appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
