2022 NFL Week 7 Fantasy Waiver Wire Picks

By Jeff Stinger

There were tons of upsets from Week 6 of the 2022 NFL season, which likely translated to several upsets in countless fantasy leagues as well. It doesn’t get any easier in Week 7 at that, as the Bills, Eagles, Rams, and Vikings are all about to take their scheduled byes to make fantasy life harder for owners of the top players from these offensively-adept teams. Who are this week’s best streaming options and worthy stashes?

Nitrobetting is ready to equip its bettors with the latest news, NFL odds, and special features for the entire duration of the 2022 NFL season. This time, let’s take a closer look at the hottest waiver wire targets in fantasy football heading into Week 7.

Top Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets in 2022 NFL Week 7

Quarterback

Marcus Mariota – Falcons

  • Pct. Owned: 14.4%

Perhaps the best streaming QB option this week that’s available in most fantasy league waiver wires is Atlanta’s Marcus Mariota, who wasn’t fazed at all facing the best defense in the NFL this past Sunday. Mariota finished with 24 fantasy points in the Week 6 win over the San Francisco 49ers and has become one of the best mobile quarterbacks in the league after putting up 50 rushing yards against San Fran’s stout front seven and scoring his third rushing TD of the season.

The Falcons won’t be on a bye until Week 14 and have favorable matchups ahead with two meetings against the lowly Panthers (Weeks 8 and 10) followed by a stretch of games against the sub-.500 Bears, Commanders, and Steelers entering their bye week. Mariota’s a decent start in Atlanta’s road clash against the Bengals in Week 6 but is a much better fill-in option off the bench considering his favorable matchups on the horizon.

Running Back

Deon Jackson – Colts

  • Pct. Owned: 32.8%

Is there a healthy running back left in the Colts’ roster? Deon Jackson appears to be the healthiest out of the bunch, but even he suffered a quad injury during Indy’s Week 6 win over the Jaguars.

Jackson did a ton of damage before getting hurt, though, finishing the game with 42 rushing yards to go with one rushing TD and a whopping 10 catches for 79 receiving yards. With stud starting back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) and backup Nyheim Hines (concussion) still tentative to start in Week 7, undrafted Duke graduate Jackson is one of the more sought-after RBs on the waiver-wire market for the past couple of weeks that will likely be owned in over 50 percent of all fantasy leagues after waivers are cleared this week.

Kenyan Drake – Ravens

  • Pct. Owned: 3.2%

Many fantasy managers have already forgotten about Kenyan Drake, who’s making a strong case for fantasy relevancy once more after his strong showing this past weekend. The journeyman back led his team with 119 rushing yards and a rushing TD on just 10 carries subbing in for starter J.K. Dobbins, who was hampered by a knee issue mid-game.

Dobbins has had his fair share of injury problems even before the 2022 NFL season began, which further boosts Drake’s value as we speak. The sixth-year back will have a great opportunity to continue his resurgent campaign when the Ravens take on a Browns defense that was just gashed by a New England rushing attack that had just scored three rushing TDs against them. Baltimore is currently a (-6.5) favorite to win at home in its Week 7 clash against its division rival.

Wide Receiver

Rondale Moore – Cardinal

  • Pct. Owned: 46.5%

Over the past two weeks, Arizona wideout Rondale Moore has slowly become Kyler Murray’s favorite downfield target not named Zach Ertz. The Cards’ receiving platoon has been a mixed bag of sorts thus far, but Moore has seen a total of 18 targets, 13 catches, and 117 receiving yards in his last two starts after missing the first three games of the season due to injury.

Like most waiver wire suggestions before him here, Moore has the benefit of a hobbled teammate to make him a viable flex start every week. The Cards’ big acquisition this offseason in Marquise Brown is dealing with an ankle injury as we speak, which means Moore shouldn’t be on the waiver wire for long. Grab the 22-year-old out of Purdue now while he’s still on the free market and regardless of your league’s scoring format.

Wan’Dale Robinson – Giants

  • Pct. Owned: 6.5%

From Rondale to Wan’Dale we go, as the G-Men’s receiving corps continues to surprise for better or worse. The Giants arguably have the weakest wide-receiving unit in football but may have found themselves a diamond in the rough in second-round rookie Wan’Dale Robinson.

Robinson missed the last four games due to a (you guessed it) knee injury of his own but returned with a bang in Week 6 by hauling in three of four targets for 37 yards and his first trip to the end zone as a pro. New York needs all the help it could get out of its underachieving receivers and it wouldn’t hurt to take a flier on the 21-year-old out of Purdue as a stash on the bench playing for a 5-1 Giants team whose passing offense could be on the upswing in the near future if the wins keep on coming.

Tight End

Greg Dulcich – Broncos

  • Pct. Owned: 0.4%

The slog of a low-scoring overtime match from the Monday Night Football showdown didn’t do the Chargers nor the Broncos any favors amongst the greater NFL fanbase. However, at least Denver may have found a better receiving option in tight end Greg Dulcich, who scored his team’s only offensive touchdown in the Week 6 loss to San Diego.

Dulcich, the Broncos’ third-round pick in this year’s draft, may just have officially overtaken Albert Okwuegbunam on the depth chart after Dulcich’s promising NFL debut in primetime. The former UCLA standout finished with two catches for 44 receiving yards and the aforementioned TD score, as he’ll be worth monitoring as a streaming TE option the rest of the season for as long as Okwuegbunam remains in Denver’s doghouse.
