Several fantasy players are worth adding in week 7 of the season, especially with four teams on bye.

NFL

Last week, we previewed five of the best waiver wire additions for week 6. Included on that list was Wendell Smallwood, who led the Eagles in rushing yards against the Giants. Moving forward, Smallwood will likely have the majority role in an Eagles offense that is slowly improving. In the week prior, I recommended picking up Taylor Gabriel, who exploded for 110 yards on five catches in the Dolphins game. Gabriel is a must-add at this point. Here are six other must-add players for week 7 of the fantasy football season.

1

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (8.4 Percent Ownership)

The Cowboys offense finally decided to start playing football in week 6 against the Jaguars. Dak Prescott had a big day and Cole Beasley was the major beneficiary as the Cowboys racked up 40 points on an elite Jaguars defense. Beasley ended his day with 9 catches for 101 yards and two touchdowns. After this game, he should continue to be the focal point of the Dallas passing attack, giving him real fantasy value moving forward.

2

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (26.4 Percent Ownership)

Most were expecting a quiet return to action for Marlon Mack against a tough Jets defense. Instead, Mack ran for 89 yards on just 12 carries and was the clear lead back in the Colts offense. Now that he's back from injury, Mack could easily become a top 15 running back in an explosive Colts offense. He's worth an addition from the waiver wire.
