Week 7 Waiver Wire Watchlist: QB

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

Trevor Lawrence, Jaguars (51 % owned in Yahoo leagues)

In Weeks 4 and 5, Lawrence confirmed flashes of why he was the No. 1 total 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 smart his possession went down. He struggled by the air in his first profession begin, however the dashing upside was on clear show. He ran for 89 yards and was inches away from scoring on the bottom. Had he gotten that final 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 date. If nothing else, Lance is price 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 dashing landing in opposition to Dallas in Week 5. Nonetheless, he is been far more good than dangerous, and though he faces a troublesome Carolina protection in Week 7, his dashing upside makes him a viable starter, particularly with Saquon Barkley (ankle) sidelined for every 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 almost 30 fantasy factors. He has the very best passing landing per try share within the NFL and has among the finest matchups attainable 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 stable 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 powerful to know if their stats are deceptive. Heinicke has performed effectively this yr with the expectation of Week 5 in opposition to New Orleans, however he is rushed for not less than 40 yards up to now two video games. He has dashing upside, and whereas the Packers’ protection has appeared improved, they nonetheless do not scare anybody. We’ll see how Tua seems to be if he performs in Week 6, however a matchup with Atlanta in Week 7 makes him a streaming candidate.

WEEK 6 FANTASY: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’em

Week 7 Waiver Wire Watchlist: RB

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

Michael Carter, Jets (53)

We will virtually 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 nasty offense, however he is price rostering resulting from 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 mentioned, he cannot be trusted in beginning lineups until 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 will not hand over 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 spot can be the short-yardage passing sport. 

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

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

Marlon Mack, Colts (27)

Mack acquired some run in Week 5 and confirmed stable burst for the primary time since he tore his Achilles’, dashing 5 instances 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 will 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 a number of work for a “backup” working again. That mentioned, he’ll be an element alongside Williams. Cohen can return from the PUP record in Week 7 and may change into 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), however it’s price watching to see the way it performs out.

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

Though Damien Harris (ribs) appears to be nice after leaving his Week 5 sport 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 resulting from 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 could possibly 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 might need short-lived stints as starters, as Chris Carson (neck) is likely to be again for Week 6 and Joe Mixon will take again alternatives as he will get more healthy. That mentioned, we all know Carson and Mixon have had accidents points up to now, so Collins and Perine are nonetheless price 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 shifting ahead. McNichols was quiet in opposition to the Jags in Week 5, however with Derrick Henry averaging 31.8 touches per sport, he is price rostering in deep leagues. We have already seen he carries stable 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 out there in your league. He caught 16 passes for over 200 yards and a landing when he was wholesome throughout the first two weeks of the season and will return to stable manufacturing when he comes again from a hamstring harm. That could possibly be as early as this week, so this may most likely be the one probability to seize him. Kenny Golladay (knee) and Saquon Barkley (ankle) will miss just a few 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 likely one of the league’s greatest offenses, so the chance is all the time 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 neglect Gallup (calf) will step again into the No. 3 WR position 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. Should you wait till then, will probably be too late.

Hunter Renfrow, Raiders (45)

Renfrow has caught not less than 5 passes in each sport 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 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 absolutely it should choose up sooner or later. 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 for those who do not.

DeVante Parker, Dolphins (41)

Parker (hamstring) was dominated out for Week 5, however it’s not anticipated to be a severe harm. He will get the Jaguars and Falcons within the subsequent two weeks, and Tua Tagovailoa may 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 recent issues to say about Gordon, however he did catch 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 social gathering.

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 precious as not less than a low-end flex choice.

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, however 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 instances. Six targets really feel like a secure quantity to anticipate each week, so he is a horny participant in deep PPR leagues. That mentioned, 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 isn’t afraid to go pass-heavy. Hilton (neck) is returning to apply this week, so his time is coming, too. Smith (hamstring) has an opportunity to return in Week 7, as effectively.

Amon-Ra St. Brown (14)

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

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 seemingly function the first tight finish in Week 6 vs. Tampa Bay with Goedert on the reserve/COVID-19 record. Goedert needs to be again by Week 7, however each could 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 likely one of the most engaging steamers in Week 7. Previous to final week in opposition to Houston, he drew 5 or extra targets in each sport — 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 almost inconceivable for him to attract fewer than six targets like he is carried out 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 outdoors of Terry McLaurin, so Seals-Jones will probably 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 based mostly 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 exhibiting 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 will probably 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 mentioned?

Inexperienced Bay Packers DST (44) vs. WAS

Washington has struggled on offense in opposition to respectable defenses, and Inexperienced Bay seems to be significantly 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 could possibly be a very good place to begin.
