Week 7 WR Waiver Pickups & Adds: Fantasy Football FAAB Bids, % Owned

Looking to prepare early for your fantasy football draft this season??? We have you covered with the lineups.com official fantasy football rankings. You can also find all fantasy football stats,DFS projections, and fantasy football projections on our site. Don’t be the unprepared guy in your league.

It is a sad day as I have not written about Preston Williams this week. Albert Wilson’s return muddies up the targets, and this is also just a team incapable of scoring 20+ points anyway. With healthy bodies returning like Tyreek Hill, it means a downgrade in targets for names like Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson. They were already volatile, but are even more so now. Once Sammy Watkins returns, they will be droppable. Devante Adams is expected to miss more time, but it has been tough relying on Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison.  Injuries and byes are piling up, and to win those fantasy football leagues, you are going to have to win the waiver wire as well. You can find the top wide receivers to pick up by rank for this upcoming week.

Auden Tate – Cincinnati Bengals

Auden Tate had 12 targets on Sunday against Baltimore, and has been excellent over the last four weeks. In that span he has posted 12, 9, 11, and 14 PPR point games. John Ross is expected to miss further time, and the AJ Green situation is still pretty unclear. Tate is my favorite wide receiver pick up of this bunch as he head into the middle of the season where bye weeks really pick up. Tate is already up to 50+ PPR points on the season, and has 322 air yards on the year. With the Bengals defense being in shambles, and no ground game to speak of, Tate is going to see sizable volume moving forward. He will have the Jaguars, Rams, Ravens, Raiders, and Steelers over the next five weeks with a bye included in there.

Mohamed Sanu – Atlanta Falcons

Mohamed Sanu didn’t budge much as far as ownership goes, and didn’t do much against Arizona. I still like him despite the week to week volatility, especially has a plug and play over the next few weeks. Sanu has 40 targets over the first six weeks, and has double-digit PPR point games in four of the six games. Of course his down games came against Philly and Arizona, two notably poor secondaries. He is up to 69 PPR points on the season, which is more than Brandin Cooks, Mike Williams, and both Packers wide receivers not named Davante Adams. Sanu is somewhat of a surprise that he is this low owned, of course this is more going to be a shallower league play, as deeper more knowledgable leagues won’t have him out there.

Jamison Crowder – New York Jets

With Sam Darnold back under center, the passing game is much more viable in New York. Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder both are pick ups to consider. In PPR formats, Crowder has a fairly safe floor, but doesn’t give you much upside. He saw his highest amount of targets since Week 1, and posted a 6-98-0 line. Crowder is mostly a PPR wideout, but go grab him as the Jets have a decent schedule after they get through New England and Jacksonville. Crowder is seeing 26% of the target share, and is up to 55 PPR points overall on the season. He will remain a safety blanket for the young Darnold, especially if Chris Herndon continues to miss time.

John Brown – Buffalo Bills

Cole Beasley is the deeper target for PPR leagues, while John Brown is still hovering around in shallower leagues. The Bills are coming off a bye, and get Miami this week. Overall Brown has been excellent this season, seeing 39 targets over five games, posting double-digit PPR point games in all but one game where he had 9.5. Brown is the deep threat of course, but he has also been reliable. Brown is seeing 22% of the targets on an actually viable Bills offense. He also is also up over 500 air yards, and is one of the few despite playing one less game. Brown is going to be a weekly start for me over the next few weeks, and especially here in Week 7 against Miami with so many names on bye.

Diontae Johnson – Pittsburgh Steelers

It was a disappointing game for Diontae Johnson despite the Steelers winning. The offense went mostly to Conner and Samuels, as expected. There is still a lot to like about Johnson for a deep league pick up. He has 31 targets, and 279 air yards. His average depth of target sits at nine. He’s also over 50 PPR points per game, which just shows how wild this season has been for fantasy. The Steelers have a bye this week so you have some time to pick him up, but he has a favorable run in over the next few weeks against lackluster secondaries.
