Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watch Week 7: Evans Almighty
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.
The Drop List
Colts owner Jim Irsay said Anthony Richardson will "probably" undergo season-ending shoulder surgery next week. At least we made some friends along the way.
With Khalil Herbert (high-ankle sprain) officially placed on injured reserve, the earliest he could return is Week 10, which is a short week on Thursday night against the Panthers. Assuming he's unable to be cleared by then, managers would have to endure a start/sit headache in his first game back in Week 11 against Detroit. Chicago also goes on bye in Week 13.
Zach Ertz recorded a season-low 52% route participation against the Rams and ran just two more routes than teammate Trey McBride, who registered a season-high 48% route rate. It's a trend that favors McBride moving forward, making Ertz expendable ahead of time.
Dalton Schultz presumably led the Texans in targets the past two weeks because both Robert Woods (rib injury in Week 5) and Tank Dell (concussion) were injured. Dell is fully expected to return after the team's bye, making Schultz less of a priority to hold.
