Fantasy Football Week 7 Early Waiver Wire Targets

After many more injuries and bye weeks, week 6 saw a lot of waiver wire action. In this article, I will be highlighting some players who you must add to your squad this week.

Quarterback


Andy Dalton, DAL, 38.2% Rostered

This is a must-add for deeper leagues or 2QB leagues. Dalton is a starting-level quarterback that has 3 very talented receivers to throw to. His Week 6 matchup against the Cardinals will be test to see how well he plays in his first start this season. Either way, Dalton is a must-add if he's still available.


Justin Herbert, LAC, 53.2% Rostered

Herbert was forced into a starting role with Tyrod Taylor's injury, and was named starting QB for the rest of the season. With the absence of Ekeler, he will be forced to pass the ball even more. Herbert probably is not available in your league, but if he is, snatch him up.

Running Back


Boston Scott, PHI, 3.4% Rostered

Boston Scott was forced into action because of a Miles Sanders injury. He played well, but if Sanders is out for Week 7, Scott is the perfect add for a team looking for a low-end flex or a reliable backup option.


Giovani Bernard, CIN, 0.7% Rostered

With Mixon's injury, Bernard took over and racked up 11 fantasy points. If Mixon is out, then Bernard could be a low-end starter, or a backup option. I'd say wait on Bernard until Mixon's decision. He should be able to clear waivers so add him after.


Gus Edwards, BAL, 0.7% Rostered

With Ingram battling an injury, JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards will likely take over running duties for the Ravens. Dobbins isn't available in most leagues, but Edwards is. Edwards would likely be a stash on the bench if you add him, but regardless he's a valuable add.


Justin Jackson, LAC, 12.8% Rostered

Jackson is only rostered in 12.8% of leagues, which is WAY too low. He's a better receiver than Joshua Kelley, and he's been getting more carries than Kelley. If he's still available, go and add him, he's only going to be valuable until Ekeler returns.

Wide Receiver


Travis Fulgham, PHI, 23.4% Rostered

Fulgham has established himself has Wentz's favorite target, and with injuries to Reagor, Jackson, and Jeffrey, Fulgham should be a valuable player to add to your team as a low-end flex starter. He could be a WR starter for deeper leagues anyway. Whatever you do, just get Fulgham.


Preston Williams, MIA, 21.2% Rostered

Preston Williams caught a TD pass in 3 of his last 4 games, plus DeVante Parker leaving left early with a groin injury, so if Parker cannot play, Williams is a must add to your roster.


Tim Patrick, DEN, 18.5% Rostered

Patrick has established himself as the Broncos number 1 receiver this season and is still rarely rostered. Even Jerry Jeudy has been rostered more than him. That's not okay. If Patrick is still available, add him now.

Tight End


Anthony Firkser, TEN, 0.2% Rostered

Firkser replaced an injured Jonnu Smith in style week 6. If Smith is forced to miss more time, Firkser is a low-end starter or a superflex option for Week 7.


Trey Burton, IND, 0.6% Rostered

Although this isn't a great add with Mo Alie-Cox and Jack Doyle at TE for the Colts, it's still an add you should make considering he had 2 TDs against the Bengals Week 6. He's not a starter yet, but he's a good add for deeper leagues.

Kickers


Younghoe Koo, ATL, 44.8% Rostered

I don't know how Koo isn't rostered more, but he should be. He's a talented kicker that could serve as a potential replacement if your kicker is on bye. Koo deserves to be rostered more.


Brandon McManus, DEN, 7.1% Rostered

McManus, like Koo should be rostered more. McManus has scored more than 15 fantasy points in 2 games this season, mostly because of bad offense from the Broncos, but nevertheless, you should think about adding him.

D/ST


Philadelphia Eagles, 17%

The Eagles get the Giants next week, and any D going up against the Giants is a mus

t-start for me.
