Fantasy Football Week 7 Waiver Wire

The week 7 waiver wire continues to bring new players to target. Although there were no major injuries there are still players to benefit from the minor ones. To start the week 7 waiver wire features several players from the Eagles. We also see several tight ends who will get an opportunity to succeed next week. With so few names potentially on the waiver wire it could be time to spend some FAAB if you need it. Let us know who you will be picking up for the week 7 waiver wire. All roster percentages are based on ESPN


Justin Herbert (45.4%)

If you have not already realized Justin Herbert looks like the real deal so far then I do not know what you are watching. Herbert has been terrific and could be a play for the rest of the year. Before the bye week he had 7 touchdowns against the Bucs and Saints. He gets an easy match up with week against Jacksonville. To me he is a must start right now and if you need a quarterback now is the time to grab him. If not it may be to late.

Herbert could be a great play the rest of the season.

Running Backs

J.D. McKissic (23.6%) 

McKissic is not going to be an option you want to count on every single week. Yet for PPR leagues the schedule sets up nicely the next few weeks. If you have upcoming byes he could be an option to fill in. Washington plays the Cowboys, Giants, Lions, Bengals and the Cowboys again in a row. To me he could be a solid flex play any of those weeks and then could be dropped once the schedule gets more difficult.

Boston Scott (10.6%)

With Miles Sanders banged up Scott should be seen as at least a one week rental for this week. With the Eagles playing on Thursday night I expect Sanders and Ertz to miss the game. That means that touches and targets should available. The Eagles have a long list of injuries and a player like Scott should benefit from this. We saw him explode against the Giants last season so lets hope he does it again.

With Sanders sidelined Scott should be a great pick up.

Wide Receivers 

Travis Fulgham (47.2%) 

I talked about Fulgham in last weeks article so I will not spend to much time on him. He is a must add for your leagues. With the amount of injuries to wide receivers he has performed at a high level. He saw 10 targets this past week and had another WR 1 performance. The next few weeks are very easy with the Eagles playing the Giants twice, the Cowboys and the Browns. Pick him up and start him. 

Adam Humphries (4.5%) 

Humphries has been very good this season in terms of ppr floor. When he has played he has seen 3 games about 10 points. This offense is also throwing a ton more which I talked about this past offseason. No they are not going to put up 40 pass attempts but a solid 30-35 is what they can do. I expect the upcoming schedule to be a bit difficult. Yet in close games Tannehill could lean on Humphries to move the chains. 

Tee Higgins (43.9%)

Higgins is another name I have mentioned previously. He is taking over the lead role for the Bengals and the team should continue to be pass happy. The schedule isn’t the easiest but over the course of the next few weeks the team plays Cleveland, Pittsburgh and the Giants. I like this kid moving forward to be an every week flex play.

Tight Ends

Anthony Firkser (0.1%)

With Jonnu Smith sidelined Firkser put up a big performance for tight ends. He finished as the tight end 1 racking in 8 catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. Now although I think he would be a big play next week the tight end position has been wild. The past two weeks has been rotating tight ends. If you need a guy to stream he could be that guy as he will see targets next week. If not pick him up and see what happens with Jonnus injury and hold him.

Firkser could be a solid pick up if Jonnu Smith is sidelined.

Trey Burton (6.2%)

Burton is emerging as the go to guy for the Colts in this offense. He has seen 5 plus targets each of the past few weeks. We know Rivers loves to lean on those tight ends and he could continue seeing quality looks. I would pick him up as a stash if you have the roster space.
