Week 6 on the 2021 NFL schedule is nearly in the books. Week 7 brings a virtual “Bye-Mageddon” with the Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Los Angeles Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Pittsburgh Steelers idle.
Here are nine early-must adds from your Week 7 fantasy football waiver wire.
Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins
Tagovailoa returned to the lineup Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, completing 33 of 47 passes for 329 yards with two touchdowns and an interception along with 22 rushing yards. The easy matchup has to be regarded, but Week 7 brings another soft defense.
The Atlanta Falcons entered their Week 6 bye allowing the seventh-most fantasy points to quarterbacks, with at three passing touchdowns allowed three times in five games. Three quarterbacks (Jalen Hurts, Daniel Jones, Taylor Heinicke) have run for more than 35 yards against them.
From there Tagovailoa gets a couple possible pass-heavy games (Buffalo Bills-Week 8, Baltimore Ravens-Week 10), with good to very good matchups around past them (Houston Texans-Week 9, New York Jets-Week 11, Carolina Panthers-Week 12, New York Giants-Week 13).
Tagovailoa is a top-end streamer for Week 7, due in part to all the top-end fantasy quarterbacks on bye. But he’s looking like a viable option for weeks after that, with a Week 14 bye to add to the appeal as a waiver wire add.
