The likes of Kareem Hunt, Baker Mayfield, Antonio Gibson, Kadarius Toney, Chris Carson, Parris Campbell, Latavius Murray, Chase Claypool are dealing with injuries that could cost significant time in some cases. 

And don’t forget that six teams have byes in Week 7. The Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers will all be taking rest, so key pieces like Ezekiel Elliott, Dalvin Cook, Josh Allen, James Robinson and Najee Harris will need to be replaced. 

For those thinking ahead, the Baltimore Ravens and Las Vegas Raiders are off in Week 8, so adjust waivers accordingly. 

QUARTERBACKS

TUA TAGOVAILOA, MIAMI DOLPHINS

Tagovailoa made his return to the lineup versus the Jacksonville Jaguars and impressed tremendously. The Miami Dolphins quarterback threw for over 300 yards and two touchdowns on his way to an 84.4 PFF passing grade (70% completion rate). That grade was the highest of Tagovailoa’s NFL career.

He also added three rushes for 22 yards, which suggests he doesn’t have any longstanding issues related to his rib injury.

With all the quarterbacks off in Week 7, he is the perfect streamer to add off waivers ahead of a matchup versus the Atlanta Falcons, who have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

JAMEIS WINSTON, NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

Winston had a great matchup in Week 5 against the Washington Football Team and delivered 27 fantasy points. He has proven that he can be a low-end fantasy QB1 even in a run-heavy offense if the matchup is favorable. That’s the exact scenario he’s in for Week 7 versus an awful Seattle Seahawks defense.

Seattle has allowed the second-most passing yards to quarterbacks over the first five weeks of the season.
