Fantasy football waivers: Should you keep or cut these 7 players ahead of Week 7?

You’re waking up on Tuesday reading all that you can about the players that you should be picking up off the waiver wire as you prepare for Week 7 of fantasy football in 2021.

But it’s likely there aren’t as many things written about who you should be dropping to grab those players. This is the weekly column: Keep ’em, or dump ’em. — hopefully will answer your question: What role should you play in improving your team?

More Bye Weeks this time. This isn’t the biggest of waiver wire weeks, but there are still plenty of players to be had to help you. Let’s look at who you can drop for them:

1

If it wasn’t clear a few weeks ago, it’s now: The Ravens will be playing three veteran players in Le’Veon, Devonta, and Latavius Murray.

VERDICT: Drop him

2

RB Samaje Perine, Cincinnati Bengals

He missed last week’s game due to being on the COVID-19 list and saw Joe Mixon and Chris Evans have good games. You could drop Mixon if you absolutely have to keep him. My opinion: Mixon is an RB2 who should be kept for now, even if he goes down again.

VERDICT: Keep him

If you are unable to get it done against the Chiefs defense, you should back up and go all the way.

VERDICT: Drop him

4

WR Rondale Moore, Arizona Cardinals

The question is not about talent. It’s all about volume. Given the number of receivers behind DeAndre Hopkins, there is no reason to roster him.

VERDICT: Drop him

5

WR Van Jefferson, Los Angeles Rams

Since Week 5, Robert Woods is back at his WR2 position, while Jefferson has fallen off.

VERDICT: Drop him

He had one great game, and it was in Week 2.

VERDICT: Drop him

7

RB Myles Gaskin, Miami Dolphins

How about 12 carries … in his past three games? And that 10-reception game in Week 5 was a blip on the radar.

But he could still play a role. Ugh.

VERDICT: Keep him
