Daniel Jones, Giants

Following enlisted FABULOUS
at sea 40% $3

While Jones’ passing production remains unimpressive, he currently has the second-most rushing yards (343) by a quarterback this season behind Lamar Jackson.

The 25-year-old’s career numbers, including three rushing touchdowns, have helped him average top-10 fantasy stats among quarterbacks.

His next opponent, the Seahawks, is one of the 12 easiest matchups for fantasy quarterbacks. Seattle gave up 100 rushing yards to Kyler Murray just two weeks ago.

Jones should be at the top of your list if you’re looking for a streamer.

Gus Edwards, Ravens

Following enlisted FABULOUS
in tuberculosis 43% $49

In his first game action since last year’s ACL tear, Edwards dominated the touchdowns in Baltimore’s backfield en route to 16 carries for 66 yards and two touchdowns.

Although he played only 36% of the Ravens’ offensive snaps, his share is likely to grow as he becomes more comfortable post-injury.

With JK Dobbins on injured reserve, nothing is stopping Edwards from clinching the role of leading running back in the future, if he can stay healthy.

Just remember, Baltimore running backs rely on the touchdown because of their lack of volume in the passing game. Edwards should be viewed as a low-end RB2 for fantasy, with a limited ceiling on weeks he doesn’t find the end zone.

Chuba Hubbard/D’Onta Foreman, Panthers

Following enlisted FABULOUS
in ATL 36%/49% $19/$14

The Panthers shocked the world by clinching victory over the Buccaneers in their first game after trading Christian McCaffrey and Robbie Anderson.

Hubbard had 73 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s game, while Foreman used a pair of longer runs to finish with 145 scrimmage yards.

An ankle injury also caused Hubbard to be out of the contest early. However, the team doesn’t seem concerned and states that he could have returned if necessary.

If the Panthers’ new offense can work with the Bucs, they should also be able to work with the Falcons in Week 8.

Hubbard and Foreman can be considered RB3/flex options for the rest of the season, but know that Carolina could turn back into a pumpkin at any time.

miguel carter, isa pachecoY Khalil Herbert they are above the 50% mark on the roster, but should be on the roster in most leagues.

High-value backups like Alexander Mattison (46% on the list), rachaad white (29% on the list), jaylen warren (6% listed), and Samaje Perine (6% roster) must be rostered in most leagues.

Wan’Dale Robinson, Giants

Following enlisted FABULOUS
at sea 29% $19

Despite his increasing role in the Giants’ offense, Robinson makes a return appearance in the waiver-wire section as he remains available in more than 70% of fantasy leagues.

In his first game since being injured in Game 1, the rookie posted a 3-37-1 line in Week 6 while playing 23% of the team’s snaps.

His usage jumped to 69% of snaps a week later, and he delivered six receptions and 50 yards on eight targets.

With tight end Daniel Bellinger out indefinitely and receivers Kadarius Toney and Kenny Golladay still sidelined with injuries, Robinson has a legitimate chance to lead the Giants in receptions this season.

It’s getting close to WR3/flex status and needs to be listed everywhere.

Parris Campbell, foals

Following enlisted FABULOUS
against ERA 4% $9

Campbell’s recent surge in usage and production could worsen if he doesn’t make a connection with new starter Sam Ehlinger. But we remain optimistic that his 23 goals over the past two weeks indicate what he can do for the Colts’ offense the rest of the way.

The 25-year-old is finally healthy and has become a full-time player in Indianapolis in the last three games, seeing the field on more than 90% of the Colts’ snaps.

He has converted those augmented goals into a 7-57-1 line against the Jaguars in Week 6 and 10-70-1 in Sunday’s loss to the Titans.

Campbell is worth picking now to see if he can continue this with Ehlinger in the lead.

George Pickens Y Tyler Boyd they are above the 50% mark on the roster, but should be on the roster in most leagues.

Greg Dulcich, Broncos

Following enlisted FABULOUS
in JAX eleven% $9

If Dulcich’s 44-yard, touchdown debut in Week 6 wasn’t enough to convince him, the rookie made an undeniable case the following week.

Even on a struggling Denver offense, Dulcich drew nine targets and caught six of them for 51 yards.

Unlike many of their other tight ends, this Broncos regimen drafted Dulcich, and they’re doing everything they can to get him involved right away.

He’s a strong TE2 option in fantasy with a path to enter the lower-end TE mix if this trajectory continues.

Transmission Options: Evan Engram vs. DEN (41% on the list)

Risky Transmission Options: Mike Gesicki at DET (41% listed), Juwan Johnson vs. LV (3% listed), Cade Otton vs. BAL (14% listed), Harrison Bryant vs. CIN (0% listed), Hunter Henry in NYJ (45% listed), Irv Smith Jr. vs. ARI (41% included)
