If you have a little uncertainty at the running back position, you may need to search the waivers to see who is available for a plug and play. These are the top Week 7 fantasy football streamers at running back that may be available for a pickup.
Week 7 Fantasy Football Streamers at RB
Justin Jackson, LAC (vs JAX)
In the Chargers’ Week 5 game against the Saints, Justin Jackson saw more opportunity than Joshua Kelley. He had 15 carries to Kelley’s 11, and ran 18 routes to Kelley’s eight. And he played on 59.2% of the snaps to Kelley’s 35.2%. I don’t know if Jackson will get more opportunity than Kelley in Week 7, but it’s safe to say he will see a good amount of touches, and those touches could go a long way against a struggling Jaguars defense that is 28th in points given to the RB position.
The Lions just had two fantasy-relevant running backs against the Jaguars. D’Andre Swift just put up 27.3 points and finished as the RB3 on the week. Adrian Peterson even got in the endzone and finished with 12.8 fantasy points. If the Lions can produce two fantasy relevant running backs then Justin Jackson can be a fantasy football streamer this week.
J.D. McKissic, WAS (vs DAL)
J.D. McKissic has at least six receptions and 40 receiving yards in three consecutive games. He had eight carries last week, while Antonio Gibson had nine. Now, he gets to play the Cowboys, who just got torched on Monday Night Football against the Cardinals. Kenyan Drake hasn’t been able to get anything going all year, and yet he went off against Dallas. The Cowboys are 31st in terms of rushing yards allowed per game and last in points/game. I’m targeting the Cowboys defense wherever I can at this point. McKissic should get 10-14 touches like he did last week, and those touches enough to be a solid RB streamer, especially in PPR.
Zack Moss, BUF (vs NYJ)
Zack Moss finally returned to the field in Week 6 against the Chiefs. He carried the ball five times while Singletary saw 10 carries. The Bills get the hapless Jets and are 13-point favorites. They will likely take a lead in this game and run the ball a lot. The Bills brought in Zack Moss to be the goal line back, and Singletary is very inefficient around the goal line. Against the Jets, Moss has a great chance at seeing goal line carries, as the Bills should easily move the ball, and I like his chances at getting in the end zone more than any other running back you can pick up off the waiver wire. All you need is a touchdown for Moss to top the fantasy football streamers this week.
