What a miserable week for fantasy football last week. Promising Jets rookie running back Breece Hall is done for the season after suffering an ACL tear and a meniscus injury in Week 7. We also saw D.K. Metcalf being carted off the field last Sunday, while Mike Williams and David Njoku both suffered injuries in respective games.

Based on these injuries, there aren’t a ton of outstanding players to be had on this week’s waiver wire. However, there are some solid options to add if you need something temporary.

1. Gus Edwards, RB, Ravens

Recommended FAAB to spend: $10-$15

Edwards is the perfect back to target if you need a running back in a pinch. In his first game action since 2020, he logged 16 carries and scored twice. With J.K. Dobbins out for the next handful of weeks, Edwards is set to lead this backfield that has yet to see a running back emerge. People forget Edwards never had a season of less than 700 rushing yards in a clogged backfield over the years. He’s a talented and trusted option in the Ravens’ backfield.

2. D’Onta Foreman, RB, Panthers

Recommended FAAB to spend: $10-$15

Christian McCaffrey’s Panther days are behind him after he was traded to the 49ers last week. With McCaffrey not roaming the sidelines anymore, fifth-year pro D’Onta Forman steps in to lead Carolina’s rushing attack. There are not many backs capable of rushing for 118 yards against Tampa Bay, but Foreman did so on just 15 carries and a 54 percent snap share in Week 7. Fellow teammate Chuba Hubbard is likely the 1B in this backfield, but he lacks the big-play ability that makes Foreman valuable.

3. JaMycal Hasty, RB, Jaguars

Recommended FAAB to spend: $5

“For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” The Jets made a surprise move in acquiring James Robinson from the Jaguars on Tuesday to replace Hall. In turn, Travis Etienne Jr. makes his anticipated ascension to the true RB1 in Jacksonville, and Hasty becomes his backup. Hasty provides a bit of big-play pop, and if, God forbid, anything happens to Etienne, Hasty can step in.

4. Marquise Goodwin, WR, Seahawks

Recommended FAAB to spend: $5-$10

Metcalf’s knee injury will not require surgery, but his return date remains unknown. Goodwin becomes a bench stash in a favorable matchup if you are desperate. The journeyman is poised to be Seattle’s WR2 behind Tyler Lockett in the NFL’s fifth-ranked scoring offense.

5. Wan’Dale Robinson, WR, Giants

Recommended FAAB to spend: $10

For as good as the Giants record is through seven games, they’re a fantasy mess outside of Saquon Barkley. The second-round pick has, seemingly by default, settled in as New York’s WR1. From Weeks 6 to 7, his snap share jumped from 23 percent to 69 percent, and his targets doubled. Robinson’s ceiling is severely hindered by New York’s pedestrian passing offense that ranks 28th in yards per pass attempt (6.4). Though, his volume is encouraging and valuable.

6. Harrison Bryant, TE, Browns

Recommended FAAB to spend: $0-$5

With Mark Andrews questionable for Thursday Night Football and Travis Kelce and Gerald Everett on their bye, Bryant could be a decent replacement as he becomes Njoku’s substitute for at least two weeks. Njoku doesn’t leave a small void behind him, as he’s ranked ninth in tight-end targets per game this season. However, when Bryant starts, he averages 8.6 fantasy points per game. 

7. Greg Dulcich, TE, Browns

Recommended FAAB to spend: $5

Very few cogs of the creaky Broncos’ offense are functional at the moment. Nevertheless, Dulcich has been making his presence felt in his first two games, playing ahead of Albert Okwuegbunam, who has seen back-to-back healthy scratches. The third-round pick has an impressive athletic profile and slotted in nicely with Brett Rypien at quarterback with nine targets in Denver’s Week 7 loss. If the Broncos can iron out their offensive kinks, Dulcich is an intriguing player.
