It’s time for the Week 7 fantasy football waiver wire. Fantasy waivers can often make or break your season. Making the right decision on which players to add and drop is crucial, so we have you set up with a deep list of potential waiver wire adds for Week 6.

Remember, we cast a wide net every week in our waiver wire advice. Below you’ll see recommendations for shallow, regular, and deep leagues. Players are listed in order of priority and the suggested auction budget percentage is in parentheses.

Keep in mind that some leagues may be more aggressive or conservative in terms of bidding, so know your league tendencies. Regardless of the size of your league, it’s suggested that you work your way down the list and prioritize the top players in your waiver claims for this week.

Shallow leagues (8-10 teams)

 Quarterback

Josh Allen, BUF (3-5%) — The Bills are coming off their bye and get the Dolphins. Allen is the top streamer option of the week.

Running back

Tevin Coleman, SF (15-30%) — Coleman led the league with four goal-line carries in Week 6 and offers RB2 potential going forward.

Devin Singletary, BUF (10-20%) — This is likely your last chance to stash Singletary. He isn't a starter at this point, but his upside makes him a potential league-winning option come December.

Wide receiver

Robby Anderson, NYJ (15-30%)Sam Darnold made all the difference for the Jets passing game. Anderson is back into upside WR3 territory.

John Brown, BUF (10-20%) — Brown gets plus matchup this week and continues to be Josh Allen's top target.

Golden Tate, NYG (10-20%) — With Sterling Shepard banged up, Tate remains Daniel Jones‘ go-to wideout.

Jamison Crowder, NYJ (10-20%) — The volume picked right back up for Crowder with Sam Darnold back. He doesn't offer a high ceiling but will see plenty of targets going forward.

Tight end

Hunter Henry, LAC (20-40%) — Henry didn't skip a beat and put up monster numbers in Week 6. He's this week's top add.

Jared Cook, NO (5-10%) — Cook has scored in back-to-back weeks and Drew Brees is nearing a return.

Regular leagues (12 teams)

Quarterback

Kirk Cousins, MIN (1-3%) — Don't just look at the stats from the last two weeks. Cousins had great matchups. His numbers will likely come back to earth against the Lions.
