WAIVER WIRE WEEK 7: Top pickups

Kareem Hunt injury update

Hunt entered Week 6 with a “Q” tag due to his wrist and knee, but it was a calf injury that knocked him out of the game against Arizona. Since it is early in the week, we will have to wait for the results of your MRI. However, the initial idea is that it is nothing too serious. Still, you might miss out on a few games, so Hunt fantasy owners should start looking forward to our best waiver pickups for Week 7. D’Ernest Johnson is the guy directly behind Hunt, but obviously his Value will depend on Hunt and Nick Chubb’s Health. Chubb (calf) scratched during week 6.

In a scenario where Chubb plays and Hunt doesn’t, Johnson should work, but it’s unlikely to be Hunt’s typical workload this year. Demetric Felton could also be involved, especially in the wide receiver game. For now, we don’t have Hunt in our rankings, but we do place Johnson as RB32 in standard and RB30 in PPR. Cleveland plays Denver on Thursday Night Football, so we expect Hunt to be out, although nothing is official yet.

WEEK 7 PPR RANKINGS:
Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

Antonio Gibson’s injury update

Gibson has been dealing with a shin injury for several weeks and has often been labeled “questionable.” In Week 6, attrition eventually got to him, and he exited the game multiple times before finally being left out when the score against the Chiefs was nearly out of control. His status in Week 7 is unknown, but he will likely be “questionable” this week and there is a real chance he will miss the contest against the Packers. In that case, JD McKissic would be in line for a ton of work, and Jaret Patterson would get a handful of carries too.

For now, we expect Gibson to play and classify him as RB8 in the PPR leagues and RB7 in the standard leagues. Green Bay has given up four touchdowns to running backs in the past two weeks, and Gibson should be able to take advantage of that as his workload has progressed overall.

WEEK 7 STANDARD RATINGS:
Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

Kadarius Toney injury update

Left Toney (ankle) was quickly ruled out after leaving his Week 6 game in the first series. Before his outing, he caught three of three goals for 36 yards and looked set for another good performance. He had been “questionable” heading into the match and apparently aggravated the injury. Not much is known about his condition, so we will have to be vigilant.

It looks like it will be a great goal no matter the opponent, at least while the Giants have other WR issues, which is why we ranked him as our WR29 in PPR and WR31 in standard leagues this week. He’ll face the Panthers in Week 7 (if he’s healthy), and they’ve looked unimpressive on defense in the last three games after a good start to the season. Darius Slayton (hamstring) and Kenny Golladay (knee) could return this week, so we’ll have to monitor all those guys too, while we try to figure out how the goals will split.

TY Hilton injury update

Hilton (quad) looked great on his return from IR with a neck injury, but left the game in the fourth quarter. The team reportedly didn’t seem overly concerned about his injury, and with the Colts going big with the Texans, it seems like they were just being wary of Hilton. That said, we won’t worry too much either, but we’ll see what news comes out later in the week.

Hilton caught four of four goals for 80 yards and looked solid enough to warrant flexible consideration if he plays San Francisco. We classify it as our WR38 in the standard and PPR leagues.
