Waiver Wire Watch: Week 7

Waiver Wire Watch: Week 7

With six teams on bye next week, I was hoping the waiver wire would be a bit more fruitful this week, but that just isn’t the case right now. We’re 1/3 of the way through the season and injuries are taking their toll on depth, while many offenses are figuring out their respective identities and becoming concentrated through a few key players. There are still plenty of options below, but hopefully for this week you drafted well and have depth available to survive the six-team bye week onslaught. Some good offenses are taking a break, which could force us into some creative lineup decisions.

Recommendations are based on a PPR-scoring, four-point passing touchdown, 12-team league, with roster percentages coming from Yahoo. Typically, we will not be writing up players who are rostered in over 50% of leagues. We may include them on the lists, though, as a friendly reminder to scan your waiver wire for those names. Free agent budget recommendations are based on a standard $100 budget for the season. I try to mention when a player is a better streaming play (short-term/one-week starter) versus a long-term addition. Lastly, the great John Paulsen will edit this article every week and adjust rankings (and prices, starting next week), if necessary. Essentially, you’re getting two minds collaborating on this piece instead of one, so lucky you.
