Fantasy Football Week 7 Free Agent Frenzy

New, comments

This is not the greatest week for free agents as the past few weeks, but as always there are a few recommendations if you have some dead spots or injuries

Dilip Vishwanat

Welcome to week 7, not nearly the great opportunity that last week was, but we do have a few players to target short and long term.

I do not list more than 15 players as that is going way too deep, and I expect your roster to not be in that bad a shape. That being said, here are a few players recommended in previous weeks;  Allen Robinson, Justin Forsett, Jerod McKinnon, Devonte Adams, Rueben Randle, James Jones, Andre Williams, Branden Oliver, Ronnie Hillman, and Carson Palmer.

Here is this week's list in order of preference;

  • Andre Holmes -  He has been on my list before but is still out there in a ton of leagues, maybe a boom or bust kind of guy but has huge potential.
  • Mohamed Sanu -  He gets WR1 priority again this week with Green out.
  • Isaiah Crowell -   He does have fumble issues but is one Tate injury away from being a top 15 RB.
  • Odell Beckham Jr. -  He will now step in as a starter due to Cruz injury, should be a solid Wr3 the rest of the way.
  • Darren McFadden -  He will not have a huge week but if you need 8-10 points, this is a nice get.
  • Malcom Floyd -  He has been solid week in and week out and getting more target than Keenun Allen.
  • Cecil Shorts -   I love his talent but with the awful Jaguars OL and uncertainty week to week, its a tough situation.
  • Bobby Rainey -  They are on bye week but if the Bucs look at the tape, they will see he is the best RB on the team.
  • Tre Mason -  The Rams RB situation is a mess but if you want to take a chance on a flyer, he looked like the best RB on the team last night.
  • Brandon Bolden -  he did get 6 carries and could be the lead back but its a pure guess
  • James White -  A very long shot for the Patriots backfield but he had a bit of hype in the preseason,  if you could read minds :)
My streaming defense of the week is Cleveland.
