Apparently we’ve used up all of the exemption goods for October on last week’s thread. Both Kenneth Walker III and Deon Jackson finished as Top 10 fantasy backs. Heck, you could be excused for mistaking Jackson for Jonathan (Taylor that is) for his week-high 28.1 fantasy points.
There’s none of that on the week 7 waiver thread. My deepest apologies to you, your fantasy teams, Kenyan Drake and Wan’Dale Robinson. Yes, these guys are worth checking out, as are a few other names. But we won’t find an RB1 for the rest of the season like we have with Walker (yes, I’m so confident).
Still, the bye weeks are about to get different: Week 7 leaves us without the Bills, Rams, Vikings, or Eagles. That means, unbelievably, that your 2022 WR1 (Cooper Kupp), WR2 (Stefon Diggs), WR3 (Justin Jefferson), and WR9 (AJ Brown) are all out of service. Not to mention the quarterbacks, running backs, and tight ends of those squads.
We all need help and there’s only one place to find it…okay fine you could swap some too but that’s another article.
