Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Adds: Week 7

week 7 waiver adds

The draft is the foundation to a good fantasy team, but a championship team is active on the waiver wire to capitalize on shifting opportunity shares and emerging talent. Each week, I’ll give you a breakdown of my favorite adds in fantasy football. All players listed have to be rostered in under 50% of leagues to qualify for this list. All roster percentages from NFL Fantasy.

Kareem Hunt, RB, Cleveland Browns, 36% owned

Hunt was signed Week 3 after Chubbs injury due to his familiarity to this offense yet only saw around 20% of the snaps as he got into football shape. Coming out of the bye, Hunt played on nearly 40% of the snaps against one of the best defenses in the league. He had only 5 less carries than Ford and was the back to hit paydirt in this contest. Hunt will continue to get better as he gets back into shape and I expect the trend to start nearing closer to him playing 50% of snaps. If anything were to happen to Ford, Hunt would become a weekly starter.

Rashid Shaheed, WR, New Orleans Saints, 32% owned

Shaheed looks to be Carr's preferred deep target over Olave. The Saints have had a brutal opening schedule for receivers to start the year but things are about to turn around with their next four games being against light defenses in Jax, Ind, Chi, and Min. He is 3rd on the team in targets per game on the Saints among WRs and TEs. While he may lack a safe floor, he is a certified plug and play if you’re in a pinch.

Elijah Mitchell, RB, San Francisco 49ers, 28% owned

I doubt McCaffrey misses time but if he does, Mitchell is the back to own in San Fran. He was excellent his rookie year but took a back seat once the team traded for McCaffrey. While Mason got more work and the TD last week, the team will go into the game planning for Mitchell to be the starter if McCaffrey were to miss any time.

Elijah Moore, WR, Cleveland Browns, 49.8% owned

I know you just vomited but hold on. Moore has seen 7 or more targets in 4 of 5 games this season. He has a higher target per game than guys like Higgins, McLaurin, Lamb, Metcalf, and Moore. Opportunity is king in fantasy. I’m betting on Moore to start converting those targets to receptions and TDs.

Weekly Waiver Trap!

Zach Evans, RB, Los Angeles Rams, 1% owned

Welcome to mid season Joshua Kelley. With the injuries to the Rams backs and trading Akers to Minnesota you have to ask how deep can you go into your roster and still receive production? He is averaging 2.5 YPC and has played in just 6 snaps in the NFL. The next four weeks he plays the Steelers, at the Cowboys, at the Packers, and a bye. If I’m playing against Evans this week, I’m pumped.
