The fantasy football week has one game left on Monday night football and after some crazy games on Sunday, there are a number of players on the waiver wire that could be solid free agent adds, including Nick Foles, Rashad Jennings, Riley Cooper, Aaron Dobson and Mike James.

Foles had one of the best days of any quarterback ever and he matched the seven touchdowns thrown by Peyton Manning this season against the Oakland Raiders, tossing seven scores with 406 yards and he only missed on six of his passes all day for over 78 percent completion percentage. The Eagles look much better with Foles at the helm rather than Michael Vick and since he has been banged up, Foles will likely be the option the rest of the day and Chip Kelly's offense looks much better with him throwing to receivers like Riley Cooper and DeSean Jackson, who each had big days.

Foles tied the NFL record with his performance and got the Eagles back on the right track and after playing terribly in his last start against the Cowboys, Foles looked very good and eh still does not yet have an interception this season and has now passed for 13 touchdowns while completing over 62 percent of his passes. Foles was accurate all day and did not make any bad decisions and apart from the Dallas game, he has been very solid this season, including when he tossed 6 TDs and no picks over his first three games and now he looks like a solid fantasy option for the Eagles as long as Michael Vick remains out with his hamstring.

Cooper has been solid for various games and is a boom and bust guy, but he has a nice connection with Foles, as in two of his starts Cooper has had his best games, including this week when he had five catches for three touchdowns and 139 yards on the day. The last game he had 120 yards on four catches with a touchdown and now he has four TD catches in Foles' starts and Cooper looks like he could be a solid option moving down the rest of the season. He has had over 100 yards in two of his last four games and at least 88 yards in each of the last three and he has shown a nose for the endzone as well.

At the running back position, Rashad Jennings and Mike James showed off on Sunday, each going for over 100 yards and Jennings looks like a solid option, as he also had seven catches for 74 yards on the day to give him nearly 180 total. Jennings rushed for 102 yards after Darren McFadden was injured in the game and he also scored a touchdown and is the main option for as long as the running back is injured. Jennings has been solid in relief this season and he has 242 yards along with 19 catches and he is a factor in PPR leagues.

Doug Martin has been out and now Mike James appears to be the starting option going forward, as he had 158 yards on 28 carries and his comes after two solid games since Martin was injured. He added two catches in the matchup as well and he had a nice touchdown in the game and now he is a solid pickup going forward and should be a start option for a bad Buccaneers team, as they don't have much left in the tank right now.
