WEEK 7 WAIVER WIRE
Its Tua time in Miami!! The Dolphins came out and said that after their Week 7 BYE, the rookie out of Alabama will be replacing Fitzmagic as the starter for the team. Its still unknown how Tua will perform, but he’s taking over for Fitzmagic who is currently QB11 on the season and has posted 23+ Pts in 5 straight weeks! It might be a homer pick, but Tua is definitely worth a waiver claim in my opinion. As he should be able to put up similar if not better numbers that Fitzpatrick.

It’s Tannehill Time is Tennessee! He is averaging the 6th most Pts per game for QBs this season.
Tannehill also offers a safe floor, scoring 19+ Pts in 4 of the 5 games, but also has a lot of upside too. Scoring 25+ Pts in 3 games so far. This week is a tough matchup at home vs The Steelers, But Tannehill has been money lately. Even if you don’t start him, He is a good player to have!

Averaging nearly 300 passing yards a game, The Chargers rookie QB has put up 22+ Pts in 3 of his first 4 games to start his NFL career. This week he faces off against a Jaguars defense that allows the highest completion % in the NFL & the 7th most passing yards per game.

It hasn’t been pretty & the matchups have been brutal to start the season, but Carson Wentz is finding ways to put up some decent fantasy points. Utilizing his legs, he has 4 rushing TDs on the season so far. Even with the lack of offensive weapons in Philadelphia, Carson Wentz has posted 21+ Pts in 3 of the Eagles last 4 games. This week things get easier as the Eagles face off against a NY Giants defense that just gave up 280 yards & 2 TDs to Washington’s Kyle Allen.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders left the game on Sunday with a knee injury and is expected to miss some time. Early reports are that Sanders will OUT this Thursday Night when the Eagles face off against The NY Giants. Going forward until Sanders returns we will probably see a RBBC between Boston Scott & Corey Clement. If I were to pick one Eagles RB to target on the waiver wire this week I would go with Boston Scott.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert is banged up again. Dealing with a high ankle sprain that will put him on IR for 3 or more weeks! During the 2 games without Mostert, Jerrick McKinnon had 14 carries in both games. I know the last 2 weeks have been duds for McKinnon, but he started off hot out the gates. Putting up 13+ PPR Pts in the 1st 4 weeks.

Don’t look now but the RB on the Washington Football Team who is getting all the receiving work is J.D. McKissic! He has 6+ receptions & 40+ receiving yards in 3 straight games! This is more of a PPR add because McKissic isn’t really involved in the run game.

It’s tough out there on the waiver wire looking for usable RBs, but AP is still available in over a third of leagues. Coming off back 2 back weeks with a rushing TD. He has also gotten 15+ touches in 3 of the 5 games this season for The Lions.

Jackson looked like the better RB LAST Monday Night for the Chargers vs the Saints. Carrying the ball 15 times for 71 yards & adding 5 receptions for 23 yards. This is CLEARLY going to be a RBBC while Austin Ekeler is sidelined for multiple weeks with a knee/hamstring injury. Justin Jackson holds more value in PPR leagues because it looks like he is the receiving back over Joshua Kelley in this offense. Also, Joshua Kelley on the season has ran for an unimpressive 3.2 YPC.

It was a rough week for Damien Harris, But NO ONE on the Patriots played good on
Sunday vs The Broncos. Next week The Patriots play Buffalo, and we just saw how The Chiefs and Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran all over the Bills. Harris is still a valuable RB to roster going forward for the mean time. I’m expecting a bounce back game nest week.

We told you to go get Tee Higgins last week, and hopefully you listened to us! Because the talented rookie out of Clemson put up a monster game this weekend. Posting 6 receptions for 125 yards. He is also averaging 8 targets/GM over the last 4 weeks. He has established himself as an important part of the passing attack for a Bengals team that is going to be throwing the ball a lot with Joe Burrow.

Coming off a BYE week, people might have forgotten that Chargers WR Mike Williams is coming off a monster game where he caught 5 passes for 109 yards & 2 TDs! We’ve seen that QB Justin Herbert isnt afraid to chuck it deep and he clearly trusts Mike Williams, who is one of the best deep threats in the NFL. He is a freak athlete who has crazy upside each week.

It was DeMarcus Robinson who got a boost & uptick in targets with Sammy Watkins out.
NOT Mecole Hardman. Its only a 1 game sample but Robinson played 69 snaps which was the most snaps for any WR on Monday night. Hardman played just 29 snaps, running only 12 routes. Robinson has also out targeted Hardman in 4 of the 6 games so far.

LAVISKA SHENAULT JR:
The targets were there on Sunday, but unfortunately the fantasy production was not.
Laviska is still worth a roster spot, especially with BYE weeks coming in hot for a lot of players. He has posted 10+ PPR Pts in 4 of the 6 games this season.

HENRY RUGGS III:
We finally got to see the speed off the Raiders 1st round rookie WR Henry Ruggs III on a 72-yard TD catch 2 weeks ago vs The Chiefs. He’s coming off a BYE so people might be sleeping on him, But the rookie out of Alabama has big play ability every time he touches the football. Making him a high-risk high reward flex play every single week. Who is worthy of a roster spot!

I have to admit it, I was wrong on this one. Telling everyone to sit Travis Fulgham last week against The Ravens in a tough matchup. Well he said hold my beer T and posted 6 receptions for 75 yards & a TD. He has now recorded 10+ targets in back 2 back games. It seems like he is the only man left to throw the ball to for the Philadelphia Eagles. Who knows when Alshon Jeffrey or DeSean Jackson will return, and Eagles TE Zach Ertz got banged up on Sunday and left with a high ankle sprain that is expected to keep him sidelined 3-4 weeks. Travis Fulgham is the last man standing and volume is king.

QB Ryan Tannehill has been hot like Hansel for the Tennessee Titans, and Corey Davis has put up 12+ PPR Pts in all 3 games he’s played this season. Also, the Titans have scored 30+ Pts over their last 4 games, so any piece of this Titans offense is worth a roster spot right now.
