Fantasy Football Week 7 Waiver Wire

Garion Thorne is joined by Dalton Del Don of Yahoo! to discuss all of the hottest names in fantasy football; which players you can ship out for value, which you can grab from the scrap heap, and the must-have waiver wire adds that could win you week 7.

Aaron Rodgers is going to be out for the season with a broken collarbone. Aaron Rodgers is going to be out for the season with a broken collarbone. For fantasy purposes, the values of Ty Montgomery, Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, and Martellus Bennett. If you're a Montgomery owner, sell him right now. He was doing very well in the beginning of the year, but he broke his ribs and Aaron Jones earned a role. Montgomery excels catching passes, so his value obviously takes another large hit from the lack of Rodgers. Same goes for all of the other skill players in Green Bay. Brett Hundley will be taking over. On that note, let's see what the wire brings this week.

All players on this list are owned in under 40% of Yahoo! leagues. Previous players will not appear unless they are streamers/resurface as options.

Jared Goff (38% owned) - After two rough games against Seattle and Jacksonville, Jared Goff gets another good matchup this week against the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals have let up the 5th most fantasy points on the year. Two of their games were against Indianapolis in Jacoby Brissett's first start, and Brian Hoyer who was recently benched. As we can see, trustworthy quarterbacks are lighting Arizona up. Goff is currently QB14, but is averaging over 20 FPPT if the Seattle and Jacksonville games are removed. In a week where a lot of weekly starters are out, Goff looks like a pretty good streaming option.

Corey Davis (23% owned) - The Tennesee Titans' passing attack looked better than ever last night, and that included Eric Decker and Rishard Matthews going over (almost) 70 yards a piece. They play Cleveland this week, and we all know how that goes. Corey Davis could return! He's only played one full game this season, but it was a good game for him. He went 6-68 on 10 targets against the Oakland Raiders the first week of the season. He's the most talented WR in Tennessee and will be a weekly starter when he makes his return.

Zach Miller (23% owned) - Since Mitch Trubisky took over as starter, he and Zach Miller have connected for a score in both of their games. These games came against Minnesota and Baltimore, who are two of the best defenses in the league. This week, they play Carolina, who have let up 4 touchdowns in 2 games to TE's. Trubisky doesn't look like the bust many people thought he would be, and Zach Miller is quietly a very talented tight end capable of big numbers.

Orleans Darkwa (12% owned) - Orleans Darkwa ran all over the Denver Broncos Sunday, rushing for 117 yards on 21 carries. Seems like a good game, nothing incredible. Until you realize that Melvin Gordon, Ezekiel Elliott, LeSean McCoy, and Marshawn Lynch did not even COMBINE for 117 rushing yards. Darkwa has looked great for back-to-back weeks, rushing for nearly 9.0 yards per carry against the LA Chargers before leaving with a calf injury. Darkwa is a bright spot in a lackluster Giant offense.

Zay Jones (9% owned) - There isn't anybody left in Buffalo. The receiving core was already depleted, but both Jordan Mathews and Charles Clay are expected to miss Sunday's bout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tyrod has to throw to somebody, and Tampa Bay is allowing the most points in the league to wide receivers. Plenty of good receiving options are on byes or injured, so the former East Carolina star is certainly someone to pick up in deeper leagues.

Tennessee Titans (31% owned) - I think my slogan for the 2017 season is "No matter who you are, you are my D/ST when you play the Cleveland Browns." Outside of the NY Jets, I've used the defense playing Cleveland every single week in my leagues, assuming they're available. It's perfect. Both DeShone Kizer and Kevin Hogan are turnover machines, and Isaiah Crowell doesn't do anything. The offense is giving up more points than any other team to defenses, so let's hope this week is not the week they break out of their slump. But, actually, I'm beginning to wonder if they ever will.
