Week 7 is by far the worst bye week for fantasy owners. No Stefon Diggs, CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Keenan Allen, Justin Jefferson, the list goes on. But, don’t worry my Week 7 wide receiver rankings list this week will be the deciding factor on your waiver pickups this week.
This rankings list will also be your cheat sheet on who to start on your bench. I’m sure you have at least one of these top wide receivers on a bye this week. Luckily the wide receiver position is still deep where you can still make it through Week 7 without one or two of your top receivers.
Just as a reminder if you haven’t seen my other rankings, this list is based on half PPR scoring.
What!? Your league isn’t hosted on Fantrax!? Once you see how Fantrax stacks up to the competition, we think you’ll be singing a different tune next season.
Week 7 Wide Receiver Rankings Notes:
Week 7 Byes: BUF, DAL, JAX, LAC, MIN, PIT
Cooper Kupp is back on top at number two this week. Kupp has had double-digit targets in every game this season and has easily been one of the most consistent wide receivers. This week the Rams have Detroit who is pretty solid against wide receivers. But, Kupp is getting the targets and that is what puts him above Tyreek Hill this week.
Another receiver that breaks the top 20 this week is Courtland Sutton. I have Sutton ranked as WR15 this week against the Browns. In back-to-back games, he has scored just about 20 points. 21.5 in Week 5 and 19.4 last week. Sutton is someone who has most likely been on the bench or plugged in at a flex here and there. But, this week he has low-end WR1 potential. The Browns are the fourth-worst defense against wide receivers this season.
Lastly, I have DeVonta Smith ranked at 19 for Week 7. This might look high as he has only scored double digits in three of six games this season. But, this will be the week he breaks out against the Raiders. Just last week the defense gave up over 90 yards and a touchdown to both Sutton and Noah Fant. They also gave up a touchdown to Tim Patrick. This is the week Smith shows why he is a top rookie wide receiver.
