Waiver Wired: Week 7

by Raymond Summerlin
Updated On: October 4, 2018, 4:04 pm ET

Welcome to the seventh edition of Waiver Wired for the 2015 season. As is always the case, this column will be your guide to the best players available in at least 50 percent of Yahoo fantasy leagues. Some of these players will be plug-and-play options who can help this week while others will be stashes who may become useful in the future.

Each profiled player comes with a recommendation of what size league they should be owned. This does not mean they cannot be owned in shallower leagues, but they are not must-adds in the smaller formats. Also, a watch list will follow every position group. These are players who could be useful in deeper formats, but they are not yet must-own players in shallower leagues. Finally, the deep cuts section highlights running backs and wide receivers who are owned in less than five percent of Yahoo leagues. Now that the explanation is out of the way, let’s move on to the action.

Three steps to fantasy football glory. Buy the Rotoworld Season Pass, stay up to date on all the breaking news at the Rotoworld News Page, and follow @Rotoworld_FB and @RMSummerlin on Twitter. Championship.

The Drop List
QB: Peyton Manning, Teddy Bridgewater
C.J. Anderson, Andre Ellington, C.J. Spiller
Andre Johnson, Torrey Smith, Percy Harvin
Owen Daniels, Kyle Rudolph, Vernon Davis

The biggest names on the drop list both come from Denver. After six weeks, it has become abundantly clear Peyton Manning is not going to develop into a reliable starter this season. He has more multiple interception games than multiple touchdown games to this point, and he has reached double-digit fantasy points just twice. There is no reason to hold him through the bye. Same goes for C.J. Anderson, who appeared to lose the 1A designation to Ronnie Hillman Week 6. Andre Ellington played just nine snaps and is well behind both Chris and David Johnson on the depth chart, Torrey Smith caught a touchdown but not much else against his former team, and Andre Johnson predictably fell back to earth after his homecoming outburst. All can be dropped in shallow leagues.   

1. Blake Bortles
2. Brian Hoyer
3. Jay Cutler
4. Josh McCown
5. Derek Carr

Looking Ahead: Texans

1. Chandler Catanzaro
2. Josh Lambo
3. Kai Forbath
Looking Ahead: Nick Folk

1. Blake Bortles, Jaguars – Owned in 43 percent of Yahoo leagues
It was not pretty, but it was another week and another 20-point output for Blake Bortles, who now has four games with at least 19 points in his last five. Bortles has already surpassed his touchdown total from a season ago, and he just got back perennial touchdown threat Julius Thomas to the lineup. As long as Thomas (bruised rib) and Allen Robinson (leg contusion) are healthy, Bortles will be worth a look against an underwhelming Bills defense in London.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team leagues.

2. Brian Hoyer, Texans – Owned in 6 percent of Yahoo leagues
The Dolphins were always going to dominate the Titans coming off the bye with a new, energetic coach, but after the short-term high wears off Miami will still have to deal with their underlying problems. The secondary has dealt with some injuries and was not good to begin with, and the pass rush has been inconsistent this season. Brian Hoyer has played basically eight quarters over the last three weeks and has 837 yards and seven touchdowns over that span. More importantly, Hoyer has forced the ball to DeAndre Hopkins when in the lineup. Forcing to Nuk is the best chance the Texans have of moving the offense through the air, and it is also Hoyer’s best chance at fantasy success. He is worth consideration as a streamer this week.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues.

3. Jay Cutler, Bears – Owned in 35 percent of Yahoo leagues
Outside of Bortles and Hoyer, there are not any good immediate options on the waiver wire. Perhaps if Tyrod Taylor is forced to sit out another week E.J. Manuel could be worth a spot start against the Jaguars, but Taylor appeared to be close last week and will likely suit up this one. Without many great streaming options, stashing a high-upside player like Jay Cutler is not a bad option. Cutler has a bye this week and has a difficult schedule upcoming, but Cutler has played extremely well since returning from injury and has Alshon Jeffery back and healthy. He should put up big numbers in multiple games down the stretch, and he is worth a stash in deep leagues.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues.

4. Josh McCown, Browns – Owned in 17 percent of Yahoo leagues
Josh McCown predictably struggled against the Broncos Week 6, but he did not face-plant as poorly as I imagined he would. He still managed two touchdowns and has now thrown multiple touchdowns four games in a row. The problem is the schedule does not get any easier for McCown with the Rams, Cardinals and Bengals on tap the next three weeks. McCown is not worth using in St. Louis, and he will be difficult to trust against Arizona and Cincinnati. McCown is still a stash and hold in deep leagues, but he is not worth streaming this week.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues.

5. Derek Carr, Raiders – Owned in 35 percent of Yahoo leagues
Derek Carr entered the Raiders’ bye with two disappointing performances against the Bears and Broncos, and the schedule does not get any easier with the Chargers and Jets up next. The schedule opens up once Carr makes it through that run, however, and he could have a strong finish to the fantasy year with the Steelers, Vikings, Lions, Titans and Chiefs from Week 9 to Week 13. If he can show something in the next two weeks, he will be worth a start in those easier matchups. Carr is a stash and hold in deeper formats.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues.

Watch List: Matt Cassel will take over the reins of a Cowboys’ offense which should have Dez Bryant back in the next couple weeks. He is worth a look in two-quarterback formats. … Ben Roethlisberger will attempt to play, but Landry Jones showed well replacing Michael Vick last week. … Zach Mettenberger could be in line for a spot start with Marcus Mariota dealing with a sprained MCL. … Ryan Fitzpatrick scores QB2 fantasy points. It is just what he does.  

1. Christine Michael, Cowboys – Owned in 38 percent of Yahoo leagues
Christine Michael’s time has reportedly finally come. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported last week it would not be surprising if Michael played as many snaps as Joseph Randle moving forward, and Cowboys RBs coach Gary Brown said the team wants to take the “reins” off Michael and “let him rock.” There have also been reports Michael is getting most the first-team reps early in practice this week. Dallas also changed their starting quarterback and left guard over the bye week, indicating they are shaking up all aspects of the offense to find some success without Tony Romo and Dez Bryant in the lineup. There is a reason Michael never jumped Robert Turbin in Seattle and has only played two snaps total so far in Dallas, but the physical upside is undeniable and the opportunity is potentially league-winning. He needs to be owned in all leagues.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team leagues.

2. James Starks, Packers – Owned in 19 percent of Yahoo leagues
James Starks started the Packers’ Week 6 win over the Chargers, out-snapped Eddie Lacy 30-21, out-touched him 11-6 and out-gained him 117-20. Coach Mike McCarthy tried to soften Lacy’s apparent demotion after the game by claiming the back was “a little banged up,” but he also made it clear Starks earned the extra playing time with his recent performance. Lacy has traditionally been a slow starter and will have the Week 7 bye to get closer to full health, but Starks has played his way into a timeshare even when Lacy is healthy. Starks needs to be owned in most leagues, but he will not be a recommended start Week 8 against the Broncos.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team leagues.  

3. Knile Davis, Chiefs – Owned in 42 percent of Yahoo leagues
As expected, Knile Davis played well behind Charcandrick West with Jamaal Charles out of the lineup. West out-snapped Davis 43-19 and out-touched him 10-6. West was also more effective with his touches though he did lose an important fumble with the Chiefs’ driving in the fourth quarter. That fumble could be an opening for Davis to take on a bigger role, especially considering how poorly the Chiefs’ offense played as a whole against Minnesota. Davis should be owned until the situation shakes itself out.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team leagues.

4. Theo Riddick, Lions – Owned in 21 percent of Yahoo leagues
Theo Riddick had just one target at halftime of the Lions’ Week 6 win over the Bears, but he took on a lead back role with Zach Zenner (cracked ribs, I.R.) sidelined and Ameer Abdullah in the doghouse after another fumble. Riddick ended up handling 10 touches in the game, and he contributed a 34-yard catch-and-run on what looked like the Lions’ game-winning drive. Coach Jim Caldwell claimed Abdullah was not benched for fumbling after the game, but it is a hard claim to believe. Abdullah appears at best to be a fumble away from extended missed time in any game, Zenner is headed to injured reserve, and Joique Bell (ankle) cannot get healthy and is not good even when he is on the field. That leaves Riddick as a possible lead-back option. He already had value in PPR leagues, and he needs to be picked up in most standard leagues as well.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues.  

5. Darren McFadden, Cowboys – Owned in 31 percent of Yahoo leagues
Even if Christine Michael becomes the “lead back” in Dallas, Darren McFadden would figure to hold the passing-down role which led to 10 targets against the Patriots before the break. Lance Dunbar was averaging 7.7 targets a game in the same role before going down Week 4. No matter what happens ahead of him on the depth chart, McFadden should continue to have value.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues.

6. Robert Turbin, Browns – Owned in 2 percent of Yahoo leagues
Robert Turbin bobbled a toss and lost yards to start a crucial overtime drive Week 6 against the Broncos, but the most telling thing about Turbin’s fantasy value moving forward is that he was on the field at all in that situation. The Browns appear willing to play almost anyone over Isaiah Crowell, and it would not be surprising if Crowell’s 29-19 snap advantage from last week is reversed against the Rams. Turbin appears on track to become the lead back in Cleveland eventually, and that gives him value.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues.

7. Ahmad Bradshaw, Colts – Owned in 13 percent of Yahoo leagues
Ahmad Bradshaw saw five touches against the Patriots less than a week after signing with the Colts. Frank Gore has played well as of late and will remain the clear lead back, but Bradshaw could push him for snaps in passing situations and in the red zone, where Bradshaw saw one of his five touches against New England. Bradshaw scored eight touchdowns on 33 red-zone touches in just 10 games last season.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues.

Watch List: Matt Jones did not appear particularly close to playing last week, and the Redskins’ run game has not been successful enough to support three backs anyway. Chris Thompson, who played 41 snaps Week 6, may be the most valuable option in PPR leagues. … Bishop Sankey, Antonio Andrews, and Dexter McCluster would struggle to have fantasy value if they had the Titans’ job all to themselves. They are not worth owning in this unholy timeshare. David Cobb is eligible to return Week 9 and could take control of the committee by the time it is said and done. … Justin Forsett (ankle) looked healthy last week, but Buck Allen is still valuable as his handcuff. … Toby Gerhart led a committee with Denard Robinson with T.J. Yeldon (groin) out. Neither looked good enough to be worth a spot start against the Bills if Yeldon is sidelined again. … Andre Williams is not good, but he keeps getting carries and would be the starter if Rashad Jennings goes down. ... Charles Sims is well behind Doug Martin on the depth chart, but he seems to make a big play in the passing game every week. 

Deep Cuts: Roy Helu needs to be monitored while we see how much faith Jack Del Rio has in Latavius Murray, who was benched in both games leading into the bye. … Branden Oliver filled in for Melvin Gordon, who was benched for fumbling last week. Oliver gained 853 total yards and scored four touchdowns in 14 games last season. … Carlos Hyde claims his foot injury is not a concern, but he looked to be struggling against Baltimore. Mike Davis would figure to see a lot of work if Hyde goes down. … Jeremy Langford vultured a touchdown from Matt Forte and is his clear handcuff. … Khiry Robinson is a safe bet for 7-10 touches every week and would have RB2 value if Mark Ingram goes down. … Pierre Thomas worked out for the 49ers Monday. Reggie Bush cannot stay healthy.

1. Brandon LaFell, Patriots – Owned 50 percent of Yahoo leagues
Brandon LaFell (foot) is expected to begin practicing this week and could be active against the Jets. LaFell finished as a top-25 receiver last season in a passing offense which was not as prolific as the one we have seen from Tom Brady and company this season. With Keshawn Martin as his only competition, LaFell should easily regain his starting spot outside. He needs to be owned everywhere.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team leagues.

2. Marvin Jones, Bengals – Owned in 35 percent of Yahoo leagues
Marvin Jones’ upside was on full display against the Bills. Jones turned 12 targets into 9 catches for 95 yards and an acrobatic leap for a touchdown. The sheer depth of the Bengals’ offense gives Jones a low weekly floor, but he has the week-winning upside fantasy owners should be looking for from their WR3 position. Jones will be a solid top-30 option when the Bengals take on the Steelers after the bye week.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team leagues.

3. Stefon Diggs, Vikings – Owned in 7 percent of Yahoo leagues
With Charles Johnson (ribs) sidelined, Stefon Diggs has exploded onto the fantasy scene with 13 catches for 216 yards over the last two games. Diggs has nine targets in each of his two appearances so far this season and has just 40 fewer yards than Mike Wallace despite seeing 15 fewer targets and playing three fewer games. Diggs has been too good for the Vikings to sit even when Johnson gets back, but he will face several obstacles to keeping up this level of production. The first is the presence of Johnson, who should at least take away a few snaps once he returns. The second and most important is the Vikings relatively slow pace and commitment to the run. Minnesota has run the seventh-fewest plays per game so far this season and has the third-fewest pass attempts per game. Competing with Wallace, Johnson and Rudolph for targets, Diggs will struggle to see more than six looks a game. Add in the deep-play regression which is coming – Diggs has converted all four of his targets of more than 20 yards which make up almost half of his production – and you have a player who will struggle to be a weekly contributor as a WR3. Diggs is worth adding on the chance he is just too talented to take off the field and continues to see a big workload, but he is not worthy of blowing a ton of FAAB dollars.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team leagues.

4. Michael Floyd, Cardinals – Owned in 32 percent of Yahoo leagues
Michael Floyd has steadily seen his role in the offense grow this season, and it finally paid off with a 5-50-1 line against the Steelers Week 6. Floyd had a second touchdown called back on a dubious offensive pass interference call and he was just out of bounds on another potential touchdown grab. The Cardinals’ offense has slowed down since their scorching start, but Carson Palmer is still creating enough opportunities to support three fantasy-viable wide receivers. Floyd will be a boom-or-bust WR3 in a great matchup against the Ravens next week.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues.  

5. Dorial Green-Beckham, Titans – Owned in 15 percent of Yahoo leagues
Dorial Green-Beckham did not become the full-time outside receiver he should be against the Dolphins, but he did see a season-high six targets and 28 snaps. It is just a matter of time before Green-Beckham passes Harry Douglas and his 3.5 yards per target on the depth chart. Green-Beckham remains a high-upside stash in 12-team and deeper leagues.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues.

6. Rishard Matthews, Dolphins – Owned in 50 percent of Yahoo leagues
Rishard Matthews was given the clear No. 2 receiver designation by the new coaching regime, and he responded by catching all six of his targets for 85 yards against one of the better pass defenses in the league. Matthews (60 snaps) played well ahead of Kenny Stills (28) and Greg Jennings (9), and he will be a good bet for 6-plus targets with some touchdown upside every week.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues.

7. Eddie Royal, Bears – Owned in 36 percent of Yahoo leagues
Eddie Royal looked healthy in his return from an ankle injury Week 6 against the Lions, and he will get a bye in Week 7 to allow the ankle to heal further. Royal has 17 targets in the last two games he has played including five red-zone targets. The Bears went to Royal on a quick screen twice near the end zone against the Lions, which is a play he scored several touchdowns using for the Chargers. Royal is a weekly touchdown threat in a good offense.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues.

8. Leonard Hankerson, Falcons – Owned in 46 percent of Yahoo leagues
Leonard Hankerson still looks to be the No. 2 receiving option in Atlanta, but his lead over Roddy White, who has four targets each of the last three weeks, appears to have slipped. Julio Jones sees too much weekly volume for Hankerson to be a reliable shallow league option sharing time with White, especially with Devonta Freeman losing his mind. That said, Hankerson is still getting enough work to be useful in deeper formats.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues.

9. Michael Crabtree, Raiders – Owned in 46 percent of Yahoo leagues
Michael Crabtree is unlikely to have a blowup game, but he has at least eight targets in 4-of-5 games this season, and the only game he did not reach eight targets he missed most of the second quarter with an ankle injury. He is a very safe bet in PPR leagues, and he can be used as a WR3 in deeper formats as well.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues.

Watch List: Jamison Crowder does not have a high ceiling in Washington’s offense, but he is a good bet for 7-plus targets as long as DeSean Jackson (hamstring) is sidelined. … Kamar Aiken saved his fantasy day with a touchdown, but he is not a usable asset in shallow leagues while Steve Smith is healthy. … Ty Montgomery’s ankle injury is reportedly minor, but he will likely be behind Davante Adams on the depth chart when the Packers return from the bye. … Kenny Stills “started,” but he played just 28 snaps. Greg Jennings played just nine. DeVante Parker was an afterthought. … Devin Funchess saw more targets than Ted Ginn for the first time this season, but he still played well below half the snaps. Ginn is still a matchup play in deep leagues, and Funchess is just a stash and see. … Marquess Wilson made a big grab against the Lions, but he was back to sporadic duty with Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal healthy. … Cecil Shorts started strong against his former team, but Brian Hoyer smartly funneled targets DeAndre Hopkins' way after halftime. That should continue. … Nelson Agholor should be back soon, and Josh Huff did nothing to steal his job last week.

Deep Cuts: Riley Cooper has re-emerged as a deep threat in Philadelphia. His production will be up-and-down, but he should have enough decent games to be viable in deep leagues. … Albert Wilson and Chris Conley may be the Chiefs’ top two receivers next week if Jeremy Maclin (concussion) is forced to miss. Conley is the better player, but Wilson is a better fit for Alex Smith. … Robert Woods and Chris Hogan will be the Bills’ top receivers against the Jaguars. Woods is the better play, but Charles Clay will dominate targets. … Phillip Dorsett played his largest share of the offensive snaps against the Patriots. ... Justin Hunter has played at least 40 snaps each of the last two games. … Chris Givens could develop into the Ravens’ desperately needed deep threat. … Dontrelle Inman could be in line for significant playing time if Keenan Allen (hip) and Stevie Johnson (hamstring) are not ready this week. … Bryan Walters was heavily involved in the offense after Allen Robinson exited with a leg contusion. … Jeff Janis made two big plays against the Chargers, but he will fall back behind Davante Adams and Ty Montgomery after the bye. … The suspension to Quincy Enunwa could open up snaps for rookie Devin Smith. … Lance Moore has 14 targets over the last two weeks.

1. Ladarius Green, Chargers – Owned in 27 percent of Yahoo leagues
In a barren waiver wire for tight ends, the No. 2 tight end on his own team is actually the best available streaming option. As expected, Ladarius Green’s role in the offense has decreased with Antonio Gates back from suspension, but he still is playing over 65 percent of the offensive snaps and has seen nine targets and three red-zone looks the last two weeks. With Keenan Allen (hip) hurting and Stevie Johnson (hamstring) questionable for Week 7, Green could have an even bigger role this week against a Raiders defense which has been decimated by every tight end not named Owen Daniels. Green is a good streaming option in a bad week for waiver wire tight ends.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues.

2. Eric Ebron, Lions – Owned in 18 percent of Yahoo leagues
Eric Ebron (knee) was able to practice on a limited basis all last week, but he ended up being held out against the Bears. Another week of healing and the likely absence of Brandon Pettigrew (knee) should force him back into the lineup against the Vikings. Ebron was an almost every-down player while Pettigrew was sidelined earlier in the season, and he averaged 6.66 targets over the first three games of the season. He also scored a touchdown and gained 43 yards on 10 targets against the Vikes Week 2. If he suits up, he will be a low-end TE1 streamer.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues.

3. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Bucs – Owned in 28 percent of Yahoo leagues
Like Ebron, Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) has a good chance to return this week, but he may not be coming back to such a good situation. Seferian-Jenkins had five receptions for 110 yards and two touchdowns Week 1, but that was without Mike Evans in the lineup. Evans saw 30 targets in the three games before the Bucs’ bye, and he should continue to be the focal point of the offense as he nears full health. Tampa Bay would almost certainly prefer to hide Jameis Winston behind a good running attack, meaning there may not be enough targets for Evans, Vincent Jackson, and Seferian-Jenkins to get consistent work. Seferian-Jenkins is worth a stash in deeper leagues and could develop into a matchup or game-script play, but he can be left on the wire in shallow formats.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues.

Watch List: Tim Wright saw six targets including two red-zone looks with Ebron and Pettigrew sidelined Week 6. He would be worth a look against the Vikings if Ebron is not able to make it back. … Ben Watson had just 139 yards total heading into Week 6. His 127-yard outburst was almost certainly a one-week mirage. … Coby Fleener needs an injury to Dwayne Allen before he becomes fantasy relevant again. … Crockett Gillmore easily out-snapped Maxx Williams against the 49ers, but he saw just two more targets than the rookie. … Jared Cook is not going to be fantasy viable in St. Louis, but there are rumors he is on the trading block. … Derek Carrier saw four targets against the Jets, but he is not getting any looks downfield. He is a deep-league desperation play at best.

1. Pittsburgh Steelers – Owned in 17 percent of Yahoo leagues
The Chiefs’ offense was a complete mess against Minnesota last week, but the Vikings were only able to get to Alex Smith twice and force one turnover. The Steelers’ pass rush has been surprisingly solid this season, and they have forced nine turnovers in the last five games including five interceptions in the last four. They should be able to slow down the Kansas City like the Vikings did, but they also should be able to capitalize on sack and takeaway opportunities.

2. Atlanta Falcons – Owned in 32 percent of Yahoo leagues
The Falcons DST had been living off touchdowns before being shredded by Ben Watson last Thursday night. Atlanta has recorded multiple sacks in a game just twice this season, but they have forced 10 turnovers including four interceptions in the last four weeks. If Atlanta is going to develop into a reliable fantasy option, they need to develop a pass rush. This week against Tennessee might be a good time to start. The Titans have given up 20 sacks in five games this season, the second-highest per game rate in the league. Add in the fact that statue Zach Mettenberger could be forced to replace an injured Marcus Mariota (knee), and we have a recipe for a good streaming defense.

3. Washington Redskins – Owned in 4 percent of Yahoo leagues
The Redskins’ once mighty rush defense has been laid to waste by Devonta Freeman and Chris Ivory the last two weeks, and the pass rush also disappeared last time out against the Jets. The good news is Jameis Winston is coming to town this week. Winston has consistently struggled when asked to do more than manage the game this season, and he has consistently turned the ball over when asked to throw more than 30 times. If Washington can get the run defense working, they could put Winston in a position to turn the ball over several times.

Looking Ahead: Next week could be a tough week for streaming defenses. The Texans’ defense finally put together some sacks and turnovers against the Jaguars last week, and they could be an option at home against the Titans Week 8.

1. Chandler Catanzaro, Cardinals – Owned in 38 percent of Yahoo leagues
Baltimore has given up three 13-point games to kickers already this season and is averaging over three field goals against per game. Targeting the Ravens with your kickers is always a good play, especially when that kicker is playing at home in a controlled environment. Chandler Catanzaro is in exactly that situation this week, and he always carries a decent extra-point floor even in less great matchups.

2. Josh Lambo, Chargers – Owned in 7 percent of Yahoo leagues
Josh Lambo has at least seven fantasy points and has attempted multiple field goals in all but one game this season. The Chargers get the Raiders at home this week. Oakland has faced multiple field goals in every game and has given up three or more in 3-of-5 contests.

3. Kai Forbath, Saints – Owned in 0 percent of Yahoo leagues
The Colts have faced multiple field goals in every game this season, and the Saints are averaging over two field goals a game. In what should be a high-scoring game inside the controlled environment of Lucas Oil Stadium, Forbath should be given plenty of opportunities to prove his worth to New Orleans right out of the gate.  

Looking Ahead: Josh Lambo gets the Ravens next week, meaning he could be a two-week filler. The game is in Baltimore, however, so weather could be an issue. Nick Folk in Oakland might be a better option.
