Injuries and Waiver Wire week 7 2022




Ryan Tannehill (Foot) - Tannehill was seen in a walking boot after the game vs the Colts. He briefly left this week's game but was able to return.





Mike Boone (Ankle) - Boone injured his ankle vs the Jets and could not return.

Breece Hall (Knee) - Hall is feared to have suffered a serious knee injury.

Chuba Hubbard (Ankle) - Hubbard could not finish the game after injuring his ankle.





Nico Collins (Groin) - Collins suffered a groin injury and could not finish the game.

Corey Davis (Knee) - Davis injured his knee and was unable to return.

Russell Gage (Hamstring) - Gage could not return after injuring his hamstring.

Allen Lazard (Shoulder) - could not return after injuring his shoulder.

DK Metcalf (Knee) - Metcalf suffered a first-quarter knee injury and was ruled out quickly. He needs and MRI.

Amon-Ra St. Brown (Concussion) - St. Brown suffered a concussion early in the first half.

Mike Williams (Ankle) - Williams took an awkward hit and could not return.





Daniel Bellinger (Eye) - Bellinger suffered an eye injury and was taken to a hospital. He returned to the team after the game, and will see an ophthalmologist in New York.

Pharaoh Brown (Head) - Brown is being evaluated for a concussion.

David Njoku (Ankle) - Njoku could not finish the game after injuring his ankle.

Cole Turner (Concussion) - Turner suffered a concussion.







Marcus Mariota (ATL) - Over the last two weeks, Marcus Mariota sits as QB5 in fantasy points per game, after scoring 24.16 and 12.06 fantasy points in each of the last two weeks, per NFL Fantasy scoring. In week eight, the Falcons face off against the rebuilding Panthers. The Panthers are a middle of the road matchup, but let's ride the hot hand, as Mariota is available in 66.6 percent of NFL Fantasy leagues.

Also consider:
Daniel Jones (NYG)





D'Onta Foreman (CAR) - The Panthers traded star RB Christian McCaffrey to the 49ers over the past week, leading to a two-man committee for the Panthers. In their first game without McCaffrey, Foreman led the way with 15-118 on the ground and 2-27 through the air. It is worth noting Hubbard left the game with an injury, leaving the Panthers thin at RB. Foreman is going to get as much volume as he can handle. Hubbard is also worth adding, assuming his injury is not serious.

Isiah Pacheco (KC) - The Chiefs made a change at their RB position, naming seventh-round rookie RB Isiah Pacheco the starter for their week seven game. In his first game as a starter, Pacheco had eight rushes for 43 yards. It may still be a committee in KC for the time being, but Pacheco should not be on waiver wires after this news.

Kyren Williams (LAR) - This is more for deeper leagues, but rookie RB Kyren Williams is expected to come off IR shortly. The Rams are set to move on from RB Cam Akers, leaving just Darrell Henderson, Malcolm Brown and an UDFA Ronnie Rivers at RB. Kyren Williams was a fifth-round pick for the Rams and could potentially see some work in a secondary role. We have not seen him on the field yet, but that should change in the very near future. Let's be proactive and add Williams now.

Rachaad White (TB), Chuba Hubbard (CAR)





Wan'Dale Robinson (NYG) - The Giants were desperate for receiver help, and Robinson answered the call-in week six. In his first game action since week one, Robinson scored 12.70 fantasy points, hauling in three of four targets for 37 yards and a TD. In his second game back, Robinson tallied six receptions (eight targets) for 50 yards. The rookie appears to be coming along nicely.

Van Jefferson (LAR) - Another Rams player that should be coming back from IR in the very near future is Van Jefferson. He was a former first-round NFL draft pick back in 2020. He's suffered some injuries along the way, but he will have an opportunity when he returns. Behind Kupp, the Rams have had inconsistent production from Allen Robinson, and sporadic games from Ben Skowronek. Perhaps Jefferson can be that deep threat receiver that the Rams offense desperately needs.

Jameson Williams (DET) - This is probably for deeper leagues only, but first-round pick Jameson Williams should be coming off from IR in a couple of weeks. It would be wise to invest in Williams' draft profile. The Lions took Williams, the former Alabama standout receiver with the 12th overall pick of the NFL draft. Fellow Lions WRs Amon-Ra St. Brown is currently undergoing concussion protocol, D.J. Chark is still out, and this Lions team could really use Williams' presence as soon as possible. He could be a factor later in the season.

Also Consider:
Donovan Peoples-Jones (CLE), Zay Jones (JAX)





Greg Dulcich (DEN) - Dulcich was activated off of IR in week six and totaled 12.40 fantasy points. In week 11, he totaled 11.10 fantasy points. If you're looking for a fix at the position, take a look at the rookie.

Evan Engram (JAX) - It has not been consistent, but Engram has been quietly productive this season. He's scored 12.90, 9.0, and 10.70 fantasy points over his last three weeks. It's not great production, but outside of Kelce and Andrews, there has not been much consistency at the position in general.
