It looked like thetop were going to be another mediocrebunch, then Jamaal Williams and Allen Lazard took over Monday Night Football...making it slightly le s mediocre. The former is much more of a priority pickup than the latter, but both could have value next week when the Packers play the Raiders. Either way, theyadded a little life to an otherwise uninspiring group of guys such as Auden Tate, Chase Edmonds, andBenny Snell Jr. It's unclear if any will actually be claimed or if they will all be availableon the free agent wire after waivers clear at around 4-5 a.m. ET on Wednesday in ESPN and Yahooleagues, but all are worth owning.
Again, ourdoesn't inspire many quick Alex Gordon Jersey -fixes for those in need of immediate help. There are plenty of decent Week 7streamers, including some QBs (Daniel Jones), WRs (Dante Pettis), TEs (Darren Fells), and D/STs (Giants), as well as some stashes who could pay off down the road (Mark Walton, Duke Williams). TheD/ST streamers for Week 7 are at the end of the list.If you're in the market for a new kicker or just want to waste even Ryan O Hearn Jersey more time before going back to work, check out our.
WEEK 7 DFS LINEUPS: | | | ||
Williams is probably the only player worth a waiver claim, but if you have a top-five spot in the waiver order, itwill be tough to pull the trigger. However, if you like to save your claims for starting RBs, this is as close as you're going to get without a big injury. Snell would also be a consideration if Pittsburgh didn't have a bye next week. As it stands, this will likely be a much busier free agency period than waiver period. If you are going to waiver someone, you might as well use more than one claim since you're going to be at the back of the line anyway. Grab a couple players before your leaguemates get a chance.

Unle s otherwise noted, only players owned in fewer than 50 percent of Yahoo leagues considered.
Jamaal Williams, RB, Packers.Remember this guy? He was in the proce s of derailing Aaron Jones's fantasy value before a scary hit to the head Blaine Boyer Jersey on the first play of Week 4 knocked him out for the next two games. He returned in Week 6 and...derailed Jones's value. To be fair, Jones did that himself with a bad drop on a sure touchdown and a lost fumble, but Williams also outplayed him, rushing 14 times for 104 yards compared to Jones's 11-47 mark. Williams added four catches, 32 yards, and a score. Packers coach Matt LaFleur talked about wanting to play Williams more prior to his injury, and clearly this will continue to be a committee. That gives Williams FLEX value virtually every game, especially next week against the Raiders.
WEEK 7: |
Allen Lazard, WR, Packers.With Davante Adams (toe) and Geronimo Allison (concu sion, chest) out and drops plaguing other Green Bay receivers, Lazard stepped up on Monday night. He led all Packers wideouts in catches (4) and yards (65) and scored the first touchdown of Martin Maldonado Jersey his career. The 6-5, 227-pound rookie wins the Auden Tate award for "looking the part" Billy Hamilton Jersey on the field, showing good hands and a physical run-after-the-catch ability. Lazard could fade back into obscurity quickly if even one of Adams or Allison returns in Week 7, but if both are out, the undrafted receiver from Iowa State would be a WR3 candidate against the Raiders. --Matt Lutovsky

Josh Allen, QB, Bills.Allen is available in roughly half of Yahoo leagues, but he's produced at a steady level in every game except for Week 4 against New England. The dual-threat QB is coming off a bye and facing the Dolphins, who allow the fourth-most fantasy points per game to QBs. Allen is not only a good stream, but he's someone worth investing in over the next month and change Ryan O'Hearn Jersey . His next five games are Miami, Washington, Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Miami again.
WEEK 7: | | |
Dante Pettis, WR, 49ers. You definitely won't need a waiver claim for Pettis, as his numbers leave a lot to be desired. But if you look at , there are strong indications he's becoming the No. 1 wide receiver. Against Washington this week, that could mean big things, and a future schedule that includes Arizona twice and Atlanta and New Orleans in the fantasy playoffs also looks mostly favorable. Now is the time to grab him.
