Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watch Week 7: Wan'Dale Robinson Arrives in the Big Apple
As a refresher, The Drop List consists of players who are rostered in at least 50% of Yahoo leagues and are no longer must-have assets, recommended additions are available in over 50% of Yahoo leagues, the Watch List contains in-depth notes on fringe waiver adds, and Deep Cuts includes player notes on those rostered in 5% or fewer of Yahoo and FFPC leagues.
Bye Weeks: Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles
The Drop List
RB: Antonio Gibson, Cam Akers
WR: Elijah Moore
Aaron Rodgers has yet to finish as a top-12 quarterback in any game this season, producing his fewest fantasy points per game (13.5) since he took over for Brett Favre in 2008. The Packers are also averaging an anemic 17.8 points weekly. Jimmy Garoppolo and Matt Ryan are stronger Week 7 streamers for 1-QB leagues wherever applicable.
Denver has eclipsed the 16-point barrier in one game all season as Russell Wilson has recorded more starts (6) than passing touchdowns (5) through Week 6. Given his hamstring injury on Monday night, I would start Jimmy Garoppolo or Matt Ryan over Wilson in Week 7.
Antonio Gibson's snap rate has progressively decreased in every game this year, leading to Thursday's season-low 26% share with four of his 15 snaps occurring while lined up at fullback or from the slot. He should be viewed solely as a contingency option for as long as Brian Robinson, who out-touched Gibson 17-8, is healthy. Gibson has been moved into the Contingency Top 10 (scroll down).
Cam Akers' fallout with Sean McVay has led FOX's Jay Glazer to believe Akers has played his "final snap" for the Rams. I'm more than willing to hold him in deeper leagues just in case Akers lands behind stronger o-line play but understand shallower benches may not be able to do so. Same goes for D.J. Moore and Melvin Gordon, who could also land in significantly better attacks.
We could previously hang our hats on Elijah Moore leading the team in routes run no matter the ensuing results. Corey Davis however has quietly run more routes as the team's de facto WR1 in back-to-back games (45-36) for an offense that has averaged 25 pass attempts since Zach Wilson returned in Week 4. I rank their ceilings Garrett Wilson > Davis > Moore ROS, though none have decipherable usage that qualifies them as confident weekly starters.
