Fantasy Football: Waiver Wire Additions for Week 7

Here's a look at some players that should take priority if you're hoping to pick up some reinforcements from the waiver wire heading into Week 7.

Chase Claypool, WR, Steelers: I had high hopes for this receiver when he first came on the scene, but he's been inconsistent during the changing of the quarterback guard. He notched a season high in yardage Sunday with 96 yards on seven receptions. Claypool also scored in the upset over the Buccaneers.

Matt Ryan, QB, Colts: Is he getting comfortable in the offense or is it because he played the Jags? He tossed three TDs on his way to 389 yards and could serve as a good bye-week replacement for managers who are used to trotting out Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts, Matthew Stafford or Kirk Cousins.

Latavius Murray, RB, Broncos: The veteran had 15 rushes for 66 yards and took the biggest share of touches out of the backfield. Melvin Gordon didn't get opportunities your used to seeing him get and Mike Boone wasn't a factor either. Javonte Williams is gone for the season so it's looking like Murray the rest of the way.

Kenyan Drake, RB, Ravens: Playing for a banged up J.K. Dobbins, Drake had a huge day as he rushed for 119 yards and two scores on just 10 attempts. It's a tricky backfield with Dobbins possibly coming back and Gus Edwards still in the picture.

Alec Pierce, WR, Colts: Y'all keep ignoring Pierce and I won't stand for it much longer. Ryan likes to go to the second-round rookie out of Cincinnait. He didn’t have a lot of catches Sunday but contributed a crucial late TD. He's had either at least 60 yards receiving or a TD in four straight games and remains widely available.

Wan'Dale Robinson, WR, Giants: The Giants have been in need of wide receiver production and they may have found a long-term answer in Robinson. He returned to action Sunday and caught three passes for 37 yards and a touchdown.

Whichever one of these tight ends floats your boat: It's such a hard position to fill after the top tier, but any one of Mike Gesicki, Dolphins (6 rec.-69 yards-2TDs); Robert Tonyan, Packers (10-90); Jake Ferguson, Cowboys (4-40-1) or Hunter Henry, Patriots (4-64-1) could help fill that role.

Caleb Huntley, RB, Falcons: He hasn't been that productive despite getting plenty of opportunities, but after the Bengals next week, the schedule gets much better for the position. He just endured matchups with the Bucs and 49ers.

D’Onta Foreman, RB, Panthers: The trade rumors are swirling around Christian McCaffrey. Foreman has looked pretty good when he has played in relief of players like Derrick Henry and CMC even post-Achilles injury. Adding Foreman at this point would just be if you have room on your roster and no other priorities.

Marcus Mariota, QB, Falcons: He accounted for three touchdowns against a tough 49ers defense and could be a decent replacement for the aforementioned signal callers who are are off in Week 7.

Deon Jackson, RB, Colts: We're adding Jackson to the "stash" pile as he could be helpful if Jonathan Taylor gets hurt again. Jackson himself is dealing with a quad injury, but if it's not serious, he's worth a stash as he had 22 touches for over 100 yards and a touchdown Sunday.

Allen Robinson, WR, Rams: I scooped him off the waiver wire last week, which means managers have seemingly had enough of his poor production. Sunday could lead to renewed interest in the once-bankable wideout, however, as he finished with five catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. He's a low priority addition since he's off in Week 7.

Defenses to stream: Saints (vs. Cardinals), Colts (vs. Titans), Steelers (vs. Dolphins)
