Fantasy Football Week 7 RB Streamers

After another week in which seemingly every healthy running back went down, this may be one of the worst weeks for running backs in recent memory, thanks in part to all the teams on bye. Fantasy football never stops or waits for anyone, however, so you need to find good replacements fast. If you didn’t have high priority, you might feel extra scorned this week. Even this week, however, there are still plenty of options left.

Read on for three RB fantasy football streamers that are worth consideration for Week 7. In some cases, one might still be able to claim these passers off of waivers. In order to be included in the fantasy football RB streamers article, they must be rostered in less than 60 percent of ESPN leagues.

Week 7 Fantasy Football RB Streamers

Rhamondre Stevenson | New England Patriots (vs NYJ)

Going into a tough matchup with Dallas, it seemed Brandon Bolden would be the main beneficiary in the passing game. In a game full of surprises, Rhamondre Stevenson received a decent amount of work across the board. While he only had five carries and three receptions, it was clear he would’ve had more work on the ground had the game script called for it.

Stevenson is quite the boom/bust option. With that being said, in a week like this, he’s a solid option. Rostered in just 16.8% of leagues, he gives an intriguing option to all strapped for running backs. Facing off against the Jets, the Patriots should get up early and run the ball often. The game script should be able to give Stevenson a somewhat stable floor and he should be a solid option.

Mark Ingram II | Houston Texans (at ARI)

Although it makes little to no sense, the Texans have shown that they will play a run-heavy offense no matter what. The Texans were absolutely destroyed by the Colts for a full 60 minutes, but they continued to run the ball. Ingram was the main beneficiary, as he amassed 18 carries and added two receptions on top of it. In this loaded backfield, it’s tough to be certain who will get the bulk of the carries. Ingram has seen the majority of carries in four of six games, however, and that won’t change any time soon.

Ingram is rostered in 29.8% of fantasy football leagues and it makes sense as he’s only hit double-digits twice. Even with that in mind, Ingram is one of the few available players who has the workload to get him to double-digits each week. While they will be playing from behind against Arizona, they’ll be running the ball plenty.

Kareem Hunt Injury Update Boosts Demetric Felton Fantasy Outlook in Week 6

Demetric Felton | Cleveland Browns (vs DEN)

With the injuries to Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb, all attention has turned to D’Ernest Johnson. While Johnson is slated to be the starter, don’t look past Felton playing a key role. Johnson had trouble getting any reps with Hunt and Chubb healthy. While that might seem understandable, Felton has two receptions in four of six games. Three of those games came when Chubb and Hunt were healthy. While that doesn’t necessarily mean Felton will get all the love, it does show that Cleveland thinks he’s good enough as a pass-catcher to get reps.

Rostered in just 4.7% of leagues, Felton is clearly being overlooked. We don’t know what we’re going to get from Johnson, but we do know what Felton’s role is. The Browns clearly love to lean on a pass-catching running back, and Felton is the guy that will get that work, not Johnson.
