NFL Fantasy Waiver Wire Adds for Week 7

The bye season is upon us and it’s time to keep adjusting those NFL fantasy lineups. If you were smart, you drafted players to limit the impact of the dreaded bye week. But you still may have players that you need to replace in a hurry and we got you covered. Here are some players to add from your waiver wire for Week 7 in the NFL.

QB Teddy Bridgewater, Denver Broncos (20% Owned in Yahoo Fantasy)

The Broncos got blitzed by an inspired Raiders team that overcame the distractions of Jon Gruden to get a big win. Teddy Bridgewater was a victim of the Raiders good fortune as he finished with 334 yards passing, 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. There’s a solid matchup on a short week against the Cleveland Browns this Thursday. Despite the talent on the defensive side of the ball, the Browns actually allow the 6th most fantasy points to quarterbacks in 2021. Rumors are that stud WR Jerry Jeudy might return this week, so this might be a nice week to take a flyer on Teddy B.

Rumors are flying that Tua Tagovailoa could be on the move this week as a Deshaun Watson trade is possibly on the horizon. This could a developing situation as he could be on the move to Washington. But in his first game since his Week 2 rib injury, Tagovailoa looked good as he threw for 329 passing yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. DeVante Parker is also looking on track to return from injury and that helps Tua in a plus matchup with the Falcons. Tagovailoa looks like a solid pick up for one week while he’s still in a Dolphins uniform.

RB J.D. McKissic, Washington Football Team (57% Owned in Yahoo Fantasy)

J.D. McKissic can be a fantasy beast receiving out of the backfield, but is very streaky. In Week 6 against the Chiefs, J.D. also got into the rushing attack with RB Antonio Gibson's shin injury taking him out of the game in the 4th quarter. Gibson’s injury might be more serious than first reported, which means more touches for McKissic. McKissic is always a PPR beast so look for him to be a nice flex option or 12+ league RB2.

Rhamondre Stevenson, New England Patriots (18% Owned in Yahoo Fantasy)

I said that Rhamondre Stevenson was a player to watch as a waiver pick up. Stevenson only finished with 5 carries for 23 yards, but he scored his first NFL TD on the goalline. Harris is the #1 RB for the Patriots as he finished with 101 yards and 1 TD. But if you know Belichick, there are no shortage of TD vultures that steal TDs from lead backs. Stevenson also added 3 catches against the Cowboys. If you’re in a deep league, you might be able to start Stevenson and wait for him to steal goal line touches and rack up PPR points.

D'Ernest Johnson, Cleveland Browns (64% Owned in Yahoo Fantasy)

Kareem Hunt's calf injury is expected to sideline him for a few weeks and Nick Chubb is not likely to play this Thursday night. That leaves touches for one of the best running offense up to D’Ernest Johnson. This is a volume play as the Browns will have to rely on the run game, especially with no Baker Mayfield.

Marquez Callaway, New Orleans Saints (40% Owned in Yahoo Fantasy)

Callaway was dropped in most leagues (I dropped him for a RB) as the Saints were on their bye. The Saints have a really good Week 7 matchup against a poor Seattle Seahawks secondary. There’s a lot of big plays to be had by Callaway as he averaged 80 yards and 1 TD in his last 2 games. Although a Michael Thomas return to action may be on the horizon, that could actually help Callaway see more favorable coverage and improve the entire offenseCallaway might be the flex pick up your team needs, he’s a must in 14 manager leagues.

Rashod Bateman, Baltimore Ravens (27% Owned in Yahoo Fantasy)

Rashod Bateman finally saw his first NFL game action after his preseason injury. Bateman only caught 4 passes for 29 yards, but he’s a dynamic player that will see more opportunities in the coming weeks. Baltimore’s passing game is improving week to week, especially after the Colts game Monday Night. I would look to add Bateman in 12-14 manager leagues but until he makes his mark he’s not a flex option in 8 team leagues.

TE Ricky Seals-Jones, Washington Football Team (45% Owned in Yahoo Fantasy)

I would love to take credit for recommending Seals-Jones last week, but I did my homework. If you picked him up and put him in your lineup then you cashed in. Seals-Jones tallied 4 catches on 58 receiving yards and a touchdown. He finished as the 6th best TE in PPR leagues in Week 6. He faces the Packers this week, which might be a tough matchup on paper but he’ll be the best receiving option after Terry McLaurin and J.D. McKissic.

TE C.J. Uzomah, Cincinnati Bengals

Uzomah had been on got since the Jaguars have on Thursday Night two weeks ago. He caught 5 balls for 95 yards and 2 touchdowns. Uzomah's has great potential for the TE position in Week 7 when the Bengals have an important division matchup with the Ravens. This has the potential to be a high scoring game with these two offenses. Baltimore's defense gives up the 3rd most points to tight ends so far this season. If your hurting at the TE position, he's worth a pick up.
