It’s Week 7 and time for the Top 12 Wide Receiver Plays for Week 7. We will be breaking down some of the top options that will be available for you to start and who will be the top matchups against their opposing defenses. This week also has 6 teams on bye and injuries are piling up at every position, so there could be a decent amount of pivoting and looking for those value plays. Let’s take a look at some of the wide receivers that could have some of the bigger games in Week 7.

Davante Adams, GB vs WAS

Adams and the Packers will be hosting the Washington Football Team on Sunday. After a slow start to the season, Adams is leading the NFL in receptions with 46 (tied) and receiving yards with 668. However, he only has 2 touchdowns on the season. Washington has perhaps the worst defense in the NFL when it comes to wide receivers. They have allowed the most receiving yards and touchdowns through 6 weeks and the 5th most receptions.

Tyreek Hill, KC at TEN

Tyreek Hill also has 46 receptions to be tied for the lead in the NFL. Hill and the Chiefs will travel to Tennessee to face off against the Titans in a Week 7 contest. The “Cheetah” has only two games so far this season where he has caught over 100 receiving yards and has only 5 touchdowns on the season as well. Tennessee has allowed the 8th most receiving yards (1,749) and they are tied for 8th in receiving touchdowns (12). The Chiefs will need to rely on Hill to help them get back on track after starting the season 3-3.

Cooper Kupp, LAR vs DET

Cooper Kupp is another wide receiver that is entering Week 7 having a share of the league lead in receptions with 46, however he is also leading the NFL with 7 receiving touchdowns as well. Kupp is only 15 yards behind Davante Adams for the league lead in receiving yards. Kupp and the Rams will host Matthew Stafford’s former team, the Detriot Lions, which are being led by former Ram Jared Goff. The Lions have allowed the 2nd most receptions with 166 and the 10th most receiving yards at 1,713. The concern with Kupp this week is the Rams getting a lead and running the ball in the second half.

D.J. Moore, CAR vs NYG

D.J. Moore has 40 receptions, 3 touchdowns, and 513 receiving yards a game. He has achieved this with 63 targets. He has 5 or more targets in each game this season, including 4 games where he had double-digit targets. Moore has also surpassed the 100 receiving yard mark in 2 games. Moore and the Panthers will head to New York to face the Giants on Sunday. The Giants have given up the 6th most receptions and are tied for the 3rd most touchdowns with 14. They have also allowed 1,653 receiving yards to opponents. The Panthers might look to Moore to help them get off their 3 game losing streak.

DeAndre Hopkins, ARI vs HOU

DeAndre Hopkins and the Cardinals face off against his former team, the Houston Texans, in Week 7. DeAndre Hopkins has 6 scores on 26 receptions and 367 yards. Kyler Murray has plenty of weapons to throw to on this offense, but this game could mean something special for DeAndre Hopkins and defensive end (and former Texan) J.J. Watt. Houston has given up 125 receptions for 1,559 yards and 9 scores through 6 weeks. The concern with Hopkins this week would be if the Cardinals go up early and just run the ball in the second half.

Deebo Samuel, SF vs IND

Through 5 games, Deebo Samuel has already matched his career-high in touchdowns with 3. Samuel also has 548 receiving yards and 31 receptions. That’s good for over 6 catches and 109 yards per game. The Colts’ secondary is not at 100 percent and gave up the 2nd most touchdowns (15) through the first 6 weeks of the season. They have also given up 141 receptions for 1,613 yards. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is questionable but trending towards starting in the Sunday Night Football matchup and that could be good news for Deebo Samuel’s fantasy managers.

Mike Evans, TB vs CHI

The Tampa Buccaneers have a lot of weapons for quarterback Tom Brady to throw to. At 6’5″, Mike Evans is one of the bigger options for him to throw to. Evans has 2 games this season where he has over 100 yards receiving, and he also has 2 games where he didn’t surpass the 27-yard mark. Tight end Rob Gronkowski is one of Brady’s favorite targets in the red zone because of his size. With Gronk out, I would think that Brady would look Evans’ way for a size mismatch at the goal line. On the season, Evans has 31 receptions for 420 yards and 4 scores. Chicago’s defense has allowed 121 receptions for 1,474 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Terry McLaurin, WAS at GB

Terry McLaurin is questionable headed to Green Bay this weekend, so you might want to check to make sure he suits up. He and running back Antonio Gibson returned to practice on Thursday, even though it was limited. McLaurin has put up his 2 worst weeks of the season the last couple of weeks against the Saints and Chiefs, but I am expecting a bounce-back in Week 7. Washington should be behind early and throwing a lot, plus Green Bay will be missing their top cornerback. McLaurin has 33 receptions for 428 yards and 3 scores this season but should be targeted a lot if the Football Team looks to keep pace with Green Bay.

Allen Robinson, CHI at TB

I have Allen Robinson as one of my top plays in Week 7 because of his increased targets each of the last 3 weeks and rookie quarterback Justin Fields starting to throw the ball more. Robinson on the season has 21 receptions for 234 yards and 3 scores. Robinson and the Bears will head to Tampa Bay on Sunday. Tampa Bay doesn’t have a great pass defense, as they have given up the most receptions (176), the 7th most receiving yards (1,756), and are tied for the 3rd most passing touchdowns (14). Tampa Bay does have one of the better run defenses, so if Chicago is looking to move the ball, they might have to target Robinson a lot.

Ja’Marr Chase, CIN at BALT

Cincinnati Bengals’ rookie Ja’Marr Chase has acted like he hasn’t missed a step playing with his former college teammate quarterback Joe Burrow. Chase has 27 receptions for 553 yards and 5 touchdowns through the first 6 weeks of the season. He has already become one of the top wide receivers for the Bengals. The Bengals will head to Baltimore to face the Ravens in a Week 7 contest. Baltimore’s secondary has allowed the 6th most receiving yards (1,770), 9 touchdowns, and 146 receptions.

A.J. Brown, TEN vs KC

A.J. Brown had his best game of the season last week against the Buffalo Bills. He has 7 receptions for 91 yards. Through 5 games (injured during one) he has 17 receptions for 221 yards and a touchdown. Brown and the Titans will host the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7. The Chiefs have allowed 136 receptions for 1,725 yards and 11 scores. The Titans have relied heavily on Derrick Henry this season but will need to get something out of the passing game to help spread the defense and make it so Henry isn’t seeing loaded boxes.

Jaylen Waddle, MIA vs ATL

Jaylen Waddle has 2 games with double-digit receptions. The problem is he has 3 games with 4 or fewer receptions. Through the first 6 games of the season, he has 37 receptions for 301 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Miami Dolphins will face off against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7. Atlanta has allowed 117 receptions for 1,288 yards and 11 scores through the first 6 weeks. Miami hasn’t really had much of a running game and has been looking to move the ball through the air, whether it has been Waddle or tight end Mike Gesicki. Look for Tua to target Waddle often to move the ball down the field, making him one of the top plays.
