Week 7 Waiver Wire Watchlist: QB

Groups on a Week 7 bye: Payments, Cowboys, Jaguars, Chargers, Vikings, Steelers

Trevor Lawrence, Jaguars (51 p.c owned in Yahoo leagues)

In Weeks 4 and 5, Lawrence confirmed flashes of why he was the No. 1 general choose within the first place. He is a rookie, so he’ll have his ups and downs, however he’ll typically enhance because the season rolls alongside. The Jags’ are on a Week 7 bye, then get Seattle in Week 8. We all know Seattle’s secondary has struggled, and he’ll be a sizzling streamer when that point comes. Stash him earlier than it is too late.

Trey Lance, 49ers (37)

Lance is on a bye this week, so it is sensible his possession went down. He struggled by means of the air in his first profession begin, however the speeding upside was on clear show. He ran for 89 yards and was inches away from scoring on the bottom. Had he gotten that inch, he would’ve been a top-12 QB in Week 5 and folks would’ve been throughout him. We’ll see how lengthy Jimmy G (calf) is out, however the 49ers get Indianapolis in Week 7, who has surprisingly been an terrible protection to this point. If nothing else, Lance is value stashing for Garoppolo’s subsequent harm or demotion.

Daniel Jones, Giants (36)

Jones suffered a concussion on a brutal hit in an try to attain a speeding landing in opposition to Dallas in Week 5. Nonetheless, he is been far more good than dangerous, and though he faces a tricky Carolina protection in Week 7, his speeding upside makes him a viable starter, particularly with Saquon Barkley (ankle) sidelined for per week or two.

Jameis Winston, Saints (35) @ Seahawks

Winston has been growth or bust this yr, however he tried a season-high 30 passes in Week 5, netting practically 30 fantasy factors. He has the best passing landing per try proportion within the NFL and has among the finest doable in Week 7 with a visit to Seattle.

Dangerous Streamers: Justin Fields, Bears (34); Teddy Bridgewater, Broncos (20); Taylor Heinicke, Washington (20); Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins (16)

These guys all carry threat, however they’ve upside in strong Week 7 matchups. Fields have not been productive in fantasy but, however perhaps a matchup with one of many league’s worst defenses in opposition to fantasy QBs (Tampa Bay) will change that. Bridgewater performs the Browns, which is an efficient matchup on paper. Nonetheless, the Browns have restricted quarterbacks not named Patrick Mahomes or Justin Herbert, so it is robust to know if their stats are deceptive. Heinicke has performed nicely this yr with the expectation of Week 5 in opposition to New Orleans, however he is rushed for not less than 40 yards previously two video games. He has speeding upside, and whereas the Packers’ protection has appeared improved, they nonetheless do not scare anybody. We’ll see how Tua seems if he performs in Week 6, however a matchup with Atlanta in Week 7 makes him a streaming candidate.

Week 7 Waiver Wire Watchlist: RB

Groups on a Week 7 bye: Payments, Cowboys, Jaguars, Chargers, Vikings, Steelers

Michael Carter, Jets (53)

We will nearly confidently say Carter is the lead again in New York, and he is scored a landing in every of his previous two video games. His upside is proscribed in a foul offense, however he is value rostering because of quantity.

JD McKissic, Washington (41)

McKissic’s utilization is definitely taking place as Antonio Gibson’s goes up, however he nonetheless has standalone worth and is a prime handcuff RB. That stated, he cannot be trusted in beginning lineups except he begins to chop into extra of Gibson’s alternatives.

Kenneth Gainwell, Eagles (36)

Gainwell solely totaled three touches for twenty-four yards in Week 5, however we won’t surrender on him simply but. He takes on Tampa Bay in Week 6, who has given up essentially the most receptions to working backs, so a robust efficiency might get the fantasy group again on him. He’ll tackle the Raiders in Week 7, whose defensive weak point can also be the short-yardage passing recreation. 

Mark Ingram (29); David Johnson (28) Texans

In Week 5, Ingram as soon as once more led the Texans’ in carries by a cushty margin, and David Johnson confirmed some life in PPR leagues, catching five-of-six targets for 46 yards. He might not be value grabbing proper now, however maybe the Texans’ will start to focus on him transferring ahead. Neither RB goes to be a weekly stud, however they could contribute in a strong matchup.

Marlon Mack, Colts (27)

Mack acquired some run in Week 5 and confirmed strong burst for the primary time since he tore his Achilles’, speeding 5 occasions for 47 yards. In prime time, RB-needy groups noticed him play, so a commerce might go down any time now. There have already been rumors Kansas Metropolis is wanting into buying him. Stash him now. At worse, you may drop him after the NFL commerce deadline if nothing occurs right here.

Khalil Herbert (23); Tarik Cohen, Bears (10)

Damien Williams is the starter in Chicago whereas David Montgomery (knee) is out, however Herbert is clearly going to get some work. In Week 5, he totaled 18 carries for 75 yards. That is a heck of numerous work for a “backup” working again. That stated, he’ll be an element alongside Williams. Cohen can return from the PUP checklist in Week 7 and would possibly grow to be a consider PPR leagues as we have seen in years previous. There’s an opportunity all these guys eat into one another’s touches (and fantasy manufacturing), nevertheless it’s value watching to see the way it performs out.

Brandon Bolden (8), Rhamondre Stevenson (8), Patriots

Though Damien Harris (ribs) appears to be advantageous after leaving his Week 5 recreation early, this backfield is crowded and difficult to foretell. We know Bolden is the receiving again, however Stevenson might start to eat into Harris’ touches because of his fumbling points.

Handcuffs with upside: Alex Collins, Seahawks (32); Samaje Perine, Bengals (21) Jeremy McNichols, Titans (3)

These guys are principally simply handcuff RBs, however every of them has gotten notable work behind their groups’ starters. McNichols leads all Titans in targets and might be used within the flex spot of deep PPR leagues if Julio Jones (leg) and A.J. Brown (hamstring) proceed to overlook video games.

Collins and Perine may need short-lived stints as starters, as Chris Carson (neck) could be again for Week 6 and Joe Mixon will take again alternatives as he will get more healthy. That stated, we all know Carson and Mixon have had accidents points previously, so Collins and Perine are nonetheless value a roster spot in some leagues. Each have been considerably spectacular of their brief stints of alternative, so perhaps they’re going to have some standalone worth transferring ahead. McNichols was quiet in opposition to the Jags in Week 5, however with Derrick Henry averaging 31.8 touches per recreation, he is value rostering in deep leagues. We have already seen he carries strong PPR upside.

WEEK 6 DFS LINEUPS: DraftKings | FanDuel | Yahoo

Week 7 Waiver Wire Watchlist: WR

Groups on a Week 7 bye: Payments, Cowboys, Jaguars, Chargers, Vikings, Steelers

Sterling Shepard (53)

Shepard’s possession has fallen criminally low, and it is time to take benefit if he is accessible in your league. He caught 16 passes for over 200 yards and a landing when he was wholesome through the first two weeks of the season and may return to strong manufacturing when he comes again from a hamstring harm. That might be as early as this week, so it will most likely be the one probability to seize him. Kenny Golladay (knee) and Saquon Barkley (ankle) will miss a number of weeks, so it is the Shepard and Toney present in New York for now.

A.J. Inexperienced (48); Christian Kirk (47); Rondale Moore (42), Cardinals

These three have all had explosive weeks this season, and all warrant consideration to be rostered. If any of the three get injured, anticipate the opposite two to be picked up rapidly. This is among the league’s greatest offenses, so the chance is at all times there. They’re all boom-or-bust candidates every week, as they cannibalize one another’s manufacturing.

Michael Gallup, Cowboys (45)

Cedrick Wilson has been productive subsequent to Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb. however let’s not overlook Gallup (calf) will step again into the No. 3 WR function when he returns from IR. The Cowboys have a Week 7 bye, however he is anticipated to have the ability to go for Week 8. If you happen to wait till then, it is going to be too late.

Hunter Renfrow, Raiders (45)

Renfrow has caught not less than 5 passes in each recreation this yr and has one of many most secure flooring amongst WRs in PPR leagues. That may sound loopy, however his ground has confirmed to be safer than DeAndre Hopkins, Stefon Diggs, and Tyreek Hill. In fact, his ceiling can also be considerably decrease than these guys, however he is a reliable flex starter that will not offer you a close to goose egg.

Darnell Mooney, Bears (43)

Chicago’s passing offense has been low quantity, however certainly it should choose up in some unspecified time in the future. Mooney has a 25.8-percent goal share — good for 14th amongst WRs — so keep affected person with him if in case you have him and take a flier on him should you do not.

DeVante Parker, Dolphins (41)

Parker (hamstring) was dominated out for Week 5, nevertheless it’s not anticipated to be a severe harm. He will get the Jaguars and Falcons within the subsequent two weeks, and Tua Tagovailoa would possibly return to motion, too. Evidently, he has an actual probability to explode throughout this two-week stretch.

Josh Gordon, Chiefs (32)

There’s not a ton of latest issues to say about Gordon, however he did his first cross as a Chief in Week 5. Kansas Metropolis desperately wants one other WR to emerge on this offense. Gordon will get that probability. Kansas Metropolis performs Tennessee in Week 7, so maybe that would be the Gordon popping out get together.

Tim Patrick, Broncos (33)

Patrick caught seven-of-nine targets for 89 yards in opposition to Pittsburgh in Week 5 and continues to be productive. He is been extra constant than Courtland Sutton however clearly has a decrease ceiling. Jerry Jeudy’s return from an ankle harm might come any week now, however Patrick will stay useful as not less than a low-end flex possibility.

Marquez Callaway, Saints (33)

Callaway broke out in Week 5, catching four-of-eight targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns. A kind of touchdowns was on a Hail Mary on the finish of the primary half, nevertheless it was nonetheless good to see him produce and get a flurry of targets. Michael Thomas (ankle) is eligible to return after the Saints’ Week 7 bye, however Callaway will nonetheless have worth. This has been a low-volume passing offense up to now this season, however perhaps the return of Thomas and Tre’Quan Smith (hamstring) will tempt Sean Payton to open the offense up.

Jamison Crowder, Jets (32)

Crowder caught simply 4 passes for twenty-four yards in opposition to Atlanta, however he was focused six occasions. Six targets really feel like a protected quantity to anticipate each week, so he is a sexy participant in deep PPR leagues. That stated, his Week 7 matchup with the Patriots may not be the time to play him.

Curtis Samuel, Washington (24); Rashod Bateman, Ravens (24); T.Y Hilton, Colts (21); Tre’Quan Smith, Saints (3)

All these guys are inching nearer to enjoying, though Samuel is now again to “week-to-week” after aggravating his groin harm. Bateman (core) is predicted to play in Week 6 vs. the Chargers and takes on the Bengals in Week 7. Lamar Jackson has dramatically improved as a passer, and Baltimore has proven it is not afraid to go pass-heavy. Hilton (neck) is returning to follow this week, so his time is coming, too. Smith (hamstring) has an opportunity to return in Week 7, as nicely.

Amon-Ra St. Brown (14)

This is not an attractive offense, however targets are nonetheless targets. St. Brown has drawn eight targets previously two video games, and Quintez Cephus is out for the yr with a damaged collarbone. It takes WRs time to develop, and this could be the candy spot for St. Brown to spherical into type. He’ll play Cincinnati in Week 6 earlier than taking over the Rams in Week 7 within the Jared Goff revenge recreation.

Week 7 Waiver Wire Watchlist: TE

Groups on a Week 7 bye: Payments, Cowboys, Jaguars, Chargers, Vikings, Steelers

Zach Ertz, Eagles (45) @ LV

Ertz has six extra targets than Dallas Goedert this season and has been considerably fantasy related for a “backup” tight finish. He has six red-zone targets this yr and can probably function the first tight finish in Week 6 vs. Tampa Bay with Goedert on the reserve/COVID-19 checklist. Goedert ought to be again by Week 7, however each may have beginning potential in opposition to the Raiders, who’re a bottom-12 protection in opposition to fantasy tight ends.

Jonnu Smith, Patriots (43) vs. NYJ

Smith has been disappointing this yr, however with Dawson Knox, Dalton Schultz, and quite a few streamer candidates at tight finish on a bye, Smith is among the most tasty steamers in Week 7. Previous to week in opposition to Houston, he drew 5 or extra targets in each recreation — sufficient to maintain him in consideration at a scarce place.

Evan Engram, Giants (31) vs. CAR

By default, Engram attracts streaming consideration in Week 7. With Kenny Golladay (knee), Saquon Barkley (ankle), Sterling Shepard (hamstring), and Darius Slayton (hamstring) banged up, it is practically unimaginable for him to attract fewer than six targets like he is performed over the previous two weeks.

Ricky Seals-Jones, Washington (11) @ GB

Seals-Jones will stay the starter in Week 7, and after drawing eight targets in Week 5, he is a prime streamer for a 3rd straight week. This offense lacks spectacular pass-catchers exterior of Terry McLaurin, so Seals-Jones can be focused closely.

Deep League Streamers: Cole Kmet, Bears (21); Anthony Firkser, Titans (9); Juwan Johnson, Saints (9)

Once more, six beginning tight ends are on a bye, so we’ve to discover all choices on the place. Kmet performs Tampa Bay, Firkser performs Kansas Metropolis, and Johnson performs Seattle. All of these defenses are among the many worst within the league in passing protection, so primarily based on pure matchups, these guys are in play.

Week 7 protection streamers and sleepers

Groups on a Week 7 bye: Payments, Cowboys, Jaguars, Chargers, Vikings, Steelers

San Francisco 49ers DST (54) vs. IND

Indianapolis’ offense is displaying indicators of life, however Joey Bosa and the 49ers’ entrance seven ought to dominate a banged-up Colts’ offensive line.

Arizona Cardinals DST (53) vs. HOU

Arizona’s protection has appeared spectacular in spurts this yr, and any protection that performs in opposition to Houston can be a prime D/ST streamer till Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) comes again. We’re assuming Houston’s success in opposition to New England was extra fluky than something. 

New Orleans Saints DST (47) @ SEA

The Saints have been the No. 3 fantasy protection and tackle Geno Smith in Week 7. Does something extra have to be stated?

Inexperienced Bay Packers DST (44) vs. WAS

Washington has struggled on offense in opposition to respectable defenses, and Inexperienced Bay seems a lot better on that aspect of the ball since they had been torched by Jameis Winston in Week 1.

Miami Dolphins DST (23) vs. ATL

Atlanta’s offense is rising, however they nonetheless do not scare us an excessive amount of. Miami has the expertise to show this factor round on protection, and this might be a very good place to begin. quality=100
