Waiver Wire Rankings: Week 7
Week 6 is now behind us. There were some big time performances and way too many injuries. This week’s Waiver Wire does not have much as far as impact players. However, there are plenty of players who can provide value for bye weeks and injury replacements. Before we get into that, let’s take a look at some key injuries from Week 6 and their potential impact.
QB- Anthony Richardson (Shoulder): Possibly done for the season
QB- Justin Fields (Hand): Doubtful for Week 7

QB- Daniel Jones (Neck): Day to day
RB- Christian McCaffrey (Oblique): Questionable for Week 7
RB- Kyren Williams (Ankle): Doubtful for Week 7
RB- Damien Harris (Neck): Questionable for Week 7
RB- David Montgomery (Ribs): Questionable for Week 7

Now that we know who could miss some time, let’s see how this impacts this week’s Waiver Wire Rankings.
There’s not much to get excited about when it comes to Quarterback this week, unless you're in a Superflex League. Sam Howell and Joshua Dobbs are guys that will be very useful over the next few weeks. Gardner Minshew is a must-add in superflex leagues.
Running Back is always a priority when looking through your waiver wire. With all the injuries piling up, this week is no different. Zach Evans is the top running back ass this week as he is expected to get the bulk of the carries for the Rams this coming week.
The running back situation in Arizona is unpredictable, however Keaontay Ingram is still the guy I'm targeting there. Damien Williams could be useful if you are in a pinch, but don't expect a lot from him.
Other running backs I'm targeting are Justice Hill, Latavius Murray, and Tyjae Spears. If you choose to let everyone fight over Evans and Ingram, go get these solid RBs. They will contribute right away.
Another player I recommend grabbing now is Keaton Mitchell. He could be the starting running back in Baltimore a month from now. Low risk high reward. Same goes for Leonard Fournette. It won't be long before he's getting good touches somewhere.
There are several Wide Receivers that should help you moving forward. One of my favorite grabs is Josh Palmer. He's clearly the Chargers' WR2.
If Curtis Samuel and/or Josh Downs are available, they are a must-add. KJ Osborn, Jameson Williams, and Rashee Rice are all worth a grab as well. They're not sexy, but they will help with these bye weeks.
There's not many Tight Ends to get excited about with the exception of Jonnu Smith and Michael Mayer. Jonnu Smith just keeps producing, and Week 6 was no different. He posted 13.60 fantasy points with 4 receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown.
Michael Mayer was very productive in Week 6 as well. He put up 12.50 fantasy points with 5 receptions for 75 yards. He looks to be a focal point moving forward. Keep an eye on that situation.
Another tight end to keep and eye on is Arizona's Trey McBride. He saw a lot more action than Zach Ertz this past weekend. I wouldn't be surprised to see Zach Ertz traded by the deadline. If that were to happen, McBride would be solid TE2.
