Having a good fantasy draft sets a team up really well, but most of the time to win a fantasy football league, acquisitions need to be made during the season. Each week there are several players worth exploring on the waiver wire. While looking at players to pick up and deciding what games to potentially bet on use, William Hill promo code to get some great bonuses. With that, here are five players to add in fantasy football week 7. (Note: These are best used for standard scoring leagues. All players are owned in less than 50 percent of ESPN leagues)
1. Boston Scott, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
Miles Sanders will miss one to two weeks with a knee injury. While head coach Doug Pederson has said that the Eagles will go with a running back by committee, Scott will get most of the work out of the backfield. He is currently ranked 83rd for running backs in standard scoring leagues.
With Sanders banged up to start the year, Scott scored four and three points respectively in the first two weeks. He’ll need to step it up, as he hasn’t scored a fantasy point in standard scoring leagues since week 2. With the Giants and the Cowboys on the schedule the next two weeks, there will be some good opportunity for Scott. He is owned in 11.7 percent of ESPN leagues.
2. Tim Patrick, WR, Denver Broncos
With the Broncos still dealing with a lot of injuries, Patrick has taken advantage of his opportunity. In the last three weeks, he has scored 10, 17 and 10 fantasy points in standard scoring leagues. He has become a bigger part of the offense over the last two games, as his target share has increased.
Patrick is the 33rd-ranked fantasy wide receiver this season and is trending upward. He has a chance to continue his production because of all the injuries for the Broncos, especially with the return of Drew Lock. Patrick is available in over 70 percent of ESPN leagues.
3. Gus Edwards, RB, Baltimore Ravens
While it was reported that it may not be a long-term injury for Mark Ingram, the Ravens may still rest Ingram. Either way, Edwards has been productive when given chances this season. He usually comes in when defenses are worn down in the second half and picks up points late in games.
With his possible increased role over the next few weeks, Edwards is worth picking up. He had 26 rushing yards and a touchdown against the Eagles and will be looking to carry that momentum forward. Edwards is owned in 2 percent of ESPN leagues.
4. Christian Kirk, WR, Arizona Cardinals
Kirk had a good game against the Cowboys, albeit with just two catches. His two catches were good enough for 86 yards and two touchdowns. To make the offense more explosive, the Cardinals should target Kirk more in the future.
In the two games before his 20-point performance, Kirk scored seven points in each contest in standard scoring leagues. He is ranked as the 38th receiver and should be looked at this week on the waiver wire. Kirk is owned in 47.5 percent of ESPN leagues.
5. J.D. McKissic, RB, Washington Football Team
While Antonio Gibson has struggled to take over the workhorse role for Washington, McKissic has played well. He had eight carries for 41 yards and six receptions for 43 yards against the Giants. Until Gibson takes over completely, McKissic is rosterable.
In week 7, Washington plays the Cowboys, which should mean that there are enough opportunities for both Gibson and McKissic. He is available in 67 percent of ESPN leagues.
