Here are my week 7 waiver wire pickups. This is it guys, you need to be building your bench with guys heating up for the second half of the season. Don't wait until you need up-and-coming players, pick them up now!
QB Waiver Wire Picks
- Jimmy Garoppolo (QB, SF) - Once this offense is clicking Garoppolo will become a solid 12 team QB. The 49er's run an up tempo attack so the plays will be there.
- Justin Herbert (QB, LAC) - Keep sleeping on him, I dare you!
- Derek Carr (QB, OAK)
RB Waiver Wire Picks
- Justin Jackson (RB, LAC) - Clear back to own in LAC with Ekeler on IR.
- Boston Scott (RB, PHI) - Sanders is out and Scott is in!
- JaMycal Hasty (RB, SF) - I think if he see's 15 touches a game, in this offense, is a worthy flex going forward with Mostert's ankle/IR.
- D'Ernest Johnson (RB, CLE) - With Chubb already on IR and Hunt now hurt you'd be a fool not to pickup Johnson.
- La'Mical Perine (RB, NYJ) - Frank Gore is 37 so at some point Perine will take over. Add now and play later.
WR Waiver Wire Picks
- Tim Patrick (WR, DEN) - Back to back 100 yard games.
- Travis Fulgham (WR, PHI) - It's clear his QB trust him and he faces the Giants next.
- Chase Claypool (WR, PIT)
- Tee Higgins (WR, CIN)
- Christian Kirk (WR, ARI)
TE Waiver Wire Picks
- Anthony Firkser (TE, TEN) - If Jonnu Smith misses time this is your streaming TE for week 7.
- Trey Burton (TE, IND) - Consistently featured in this offense and a solid pick if you missed on the top 10.
Team Defenses to Stream In Week 7
- Eagles Defense - They face the Giants.
- Cowboys Defense - They face the Redskins.
