NFL Week 7 Fantasy Football Waiver Thread
Do you know that feeling in your draft when you start selecting your players and pay little attention to their weeks off?
“I’ll take care of it later.”
We’ve all been there. And frankly, this is the way to go. For starters, the team you draft is not the team you will end the season with. You’re constantly tinkering around, so paying too much attention to a week off two months after your draft is a bit unsuccessful. Second, even if your roster is largely stagnant, you don’t want to build a team that is too focused on a week or two of action. You need 18 weeks of rise.
Alas, Week 7 is one of those weeks where everyone’s going to have to adjust a bit, because we’ve reached the first six-team pass of the season and there are some big hitters.
Goodbye players this week include: Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, Dalton Schultz, Stefon Diggs, Josh Allen, Emmanuel Sanders, Zack Moss, Dawson Knox, Dalvin Cook, Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, Najee Harris, Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, James Robinson, Marvin Jones Jr, Austin Ekeler, Mike Williams, Keenan Allen and Justin Herbert.
We all complete this week together. … With that in mind, here is the ESPN Fantasy waiver thread from week 7.
Note: Players in this column must be available in at least 50% of the leagues on ESPN.
Week 7 byes: Bills, Chargers, Cowboys, Jaguars, Steelers, Vikings
With three infallible quarters to Allen, Herbert and Dak Prescott goodbye, it’s a week where many will have to look to an alternative. These suggested names are specific to their week 7 value.
Derek Carr, QB, Las Vegas Raiders (46.4%): Carr has four fantastic 20-plus-point games this season with an upcoming game against Philadelphia. Although the Philly defense didn’t allow a ton of passing yards per game, it allowed 12 touchdown passes and allowed opposing quarterbacks to complete 71.5% of their passes, each among the worst in the NFL. .
Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins (25.3%): Tua returned in Week 6 and put up a passing effort of over 300 yards and over 21 fantasy points. Its Week 7 clash features the Falcons, a team that allowed 11 pass touchdowns and only collected one assist this season. Additionally, Miami can’t throw the ball, leaving Tua to probably throw it in abundance. He did this 47 times in week 6.
Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Denver Broncos (16.9%): Teddy B has played fairly well so far this season, completing north 70% of his passes and averaging over 250 yards per game. The Browns are another defense that has been a bit vulnerable against the pass, already allowing 14 touchdowns in the air this season. There isn’t a huge advantage with Bridgewater, but he has over 18 fantastic points in four of the six games this season.
RB, WR and TE
Alex Collins, RB, Seattle Seahawks (46.6%) / Rashaad Penny, RB, Seattle Seahawks (3.2%): The Seahawks have turned to Collins to replace Chris Carson as he heals a neck injury and the results have been strong so far: Collins has touched 38 touches in two games and rushed for more than 100 yards to the during week 6. It should be noted that Collins is treating a hip problem, but head coach Pete Carroll hasn’t slammed the door on him to play in week 7. If he does, he does. is an essential addition. Penny is mentioned here because Carroll has stated that he expects him to return in Week 7 and that there is a chance he will take over from Collins if Collins is not able to. ‘go. He is a deeper consideration in the league.
Stephania Bell has Alex Collins ‘latest hip injury that knocked her out of the Seahawks’ loss on Sunday night.
Tim Patrick, WR, Denver Broncos (40.4%): I became a broken record and a Tim Patrick stan because the man just keeps producing. He has one touchdown in three games this season and at least 10 fantastic points in every game but one. His role has expanded with injuries to Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler, but even when Jeudy returns, I suspect Patrick will remain involved. Patrick deserves to be entered in many other leagues.
JD McKissic, RB, Washington football team (46.7%): Antonio Gibson was in and out of the football roster in Week 6 as he battles a shin injury which created even more opportunities for McKissic. But that’s not exclusively related to Gibson being assaulted, as McKissic is an exceptional receiver who has been good to them for quite some time. With Washington ignoring defense this year, the team feel they are playing from behind frequently enough that McKissic is added in all leagues.
Zach Ertz, TE, Arizona Cardinals (48.4%): Ertz capped an incredible stint in Philadelphia with a four-catch effort in Week 6 that included a touchdown. Now he’s heading to Arizona where he should be a nearly downed player for an offense that recently lost Maxx Williams to serious injury. While the Cardinals have plenty of mouths to feed and Ertz isn’t locked in to see a massive target share, but he should have enough opportunities in one of football’s best offensives to have some vintage Ertz moments . He is an add-on in all leagues.
Ricky Seals-Jones, TE, Washington football team (19.1%): Once Logan Thomas fell, the football team turned to Seals-Jones and he became a full-time player. He found the end zone in Week 6 and made four total catches for 58 yards. This follows a five catches for a 41-yard effort in Week 5. It’s hard to find tight ends that have a constant role in the passing game and RSJ is right now. This is an addition for anyone looking for a tight end that is usable at the moment.
Rashod Bateman, WR, Baltimore Ravens (14.6%): It was great to see Bateman make his NFL debut in Week 6 after suffering an injury during training camp that took him to the injured reserve. Bateman saw six targets against the Chargers, most of all of the Ravens’ spreaders, and caught four for 29 yards. There’s plenty to be excited about from a talent standpoint with Bateman, making him a smart addition and a hideout for those who can afford to be patient as his role grows.
TY Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts (23.1%): Hilton made his season debut in week 6 and looked pretty good for a guy who hadn’t played football in a while. And although he left the game due to injury, head coach Frank Reich didn’t seem too concerned about it after the game. We’ve seen more than enough of Hilton in the past to know it can be a whimsy factor. Hilton is an addition and a stash, especially since we don’t yet know if it will be available in week 7.
Jamal Agnew, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars (0.4%): When the Jaguars lost DJ Chark for the season, we figured that would mean Laviska Shenault Jr. would turn out to be a very busy man. While Shenault has been given work, Agnew’s emergence has come as a surprise over the past two weeks, as he has seen 13 targets. It is at least worth watching and making Agnew an addition and a deep league reserve. He’s a speedster and has proven to be a very smart addition by the Jaguars this offseason.
