Here are the top Week 7 Waiver Wire Adds as we head into Week 7 of the 2016 fantasy football season. Planning ahead and grabbing some of these players below (before it’s too late to add/drop them) is how you can secure solid trade and starting lineup options down the stretch in 2016. Enjoy.
Don Jackson (RB/GB)
Eddie Lacy is headed to IR as of this moment. He will require surgery and will be out at least 8 weeks, if not the season. The Packers will likely use Ty Montgomery a ton at both RB and WR in Week 7, and maybe moving forward in 2016. However, a few reports as of this afternoon are now suggesting that Don Jackson could be the main back for Thursday night’s Week 7 match-up against the Bears. He is a must-own right now.
Knile Davis (RB/GB) / Don Jackson (RB/GB)
The Packers traded for Chiefs RB Knile Davis on Tuesday and then news later in the afternoon suggested that Eddie Lacy will likely miss multiple weeks with his ankle. Ty Montgomery, who has experience at RB from college, could get more carries in Week 7 than anyone expects, and so could Cobb, but I’ve always loved Knile Davis, and if you remember back near two years ago, Knile was a Bold Prediction of mine that failed due to not being used. Talent has never been his problem. I love Knile in Green Bay, it’s a great situation. I just hope he gets the touches. If he does, he should thrive.
Jay Ajayi (RB/MIA)
The guy rushed for 204 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries in Week 6 against the Steelers. He was on our Bold Predictions List for a reason, so talent has never been a question. His usage has. Well, Miami used him in Week 6, that’s for sure. Will they continue? Pick him up without hesitation while we wait and see!
Cameron Meredith (WR/CHI)
The guy posted 100 yards last week, and then this week he pulls in 11-of-15 targets for 113 yards against the Jags. Every once in a while a somewhat unknown WR emerges and becomes a big-time talent. He may or may not be that WR, but don’t wait to find out, grab him and use him as a WR3/4 moving forward. He has earned that kind of play in lineups and his future appears bright.
Hunter Henry (TE/SD)
The guy has been nothing but consistent as of late, and this week he pulled in 6-of-8 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown. He is a top 10TE moving forward, with value that can easily dance in the top 4-7 range.
James White< (RB/NE)
While he only rushed 7 times for 19 yards, he was involved in the passing game for the second straight week, this week pulling in 8-of-9 targets for 47 yards and two touchdowns. He easily has flex value right now. Easily.
Jacquizz Rodgers (RB/TB)
Coming off the bye, it’s tough to say if Doug Martin will play or even be close to healthy this week. We will soon find out. But, while we wait, make sure Rodgers isn’t on waivers, as he ran the ball 30 times for 101 yards in Week 5 (before the bye).
Devontae Booker (RB/DEN)
He rushed five times for 46 yards in Week 6. He is getting more and more carries, and he is a Bold Prediction for a reason. If he ever forces CJ Anderson out of the lineup, he should thrive. Grab him now while it’s still possible and then wait.
Cole Beasley (WR/DAL) – He pulled in six passes for 58 yards and two scores Week 6. He is becoming flex-worthy for sure, especially if Dak stays in the lineup, which is unclear at this point heading into the Cowboys Week 7 bye.
Torrey Smith (WR/SF) – He pulled in three passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in Week 6.
Mike Gillislee (RB/BUF) – Shady almost looked done for the year with a knee injury in Week 6, but he was able to return and appears ok. Still, it’s a reminder that Gillislee should not be on waivers, as he is a Bold Prediction this year and should thrive if ever starting for Buffalo in 2016.
Tony Romo (QB/DAL) – Will he be back in Week 8 after the Cowboys Week 7 bye?
Dion Lewis (RB/NE) – He could potentially return this coming week or the week after. Will he have a role? It’s tough to say, but he is worth stashing!
Chris Ivory (RB/JAX) – He ran the ball 11 times for 32 yards and a touchdown in Week 6.
Kenny Britt (WR/LA) – The guy caught 7-of-8 targets for 136 yards and two scores Week 6 against the Lions. He looked great in this one, but he is tough to trust. He has always been extremely talented.
Ty Montgomery (WR/GB) – He pulled in 10-of-12 targets for 98 yards, and rushed three times for six yards in Week 6 against the Cowboys. With Adams (head) injured, he could have a nice role for a few weeks (maybe longer).
