The fantasy football waiver wire will be used a ton with a ton of bye weeks coming up over the next few weeks. In Week 7, the Dallas Cowboys, Carolina Panthers, New York Jets, Houston Texans, and Cincinnati Bengals will be on a bye week.
Below we take a look at some of the best kicker options that should be on the waiver wire in your league for Week 7.
Fantasy football waiver wire: Kicker pickups for Week 7
Riley Patterson, Detroit Lions
This is the perfect week to have Patterson on your fantasy team. The Baltimore Ravens defense has been bend don't break for a good portion of this season. I think they will struggle to keep the Lions out of their side of the field, but will tighten up when they need to. I expect 3+ field goal opportunities from Patterson in this matchup and maybe an extra point or two.
Brandon McManus, Jacksonville Jaguars
McManus is coming off his best week. He is a solid option but has had some inconsistencies through this season. In three games this season, McManus has scored 10+ points which is solid from a kicker. The Jaguars offense is finally starting to click, so there should be more opportunities for him in the next few weeks.
Greg Zuerlein, New York Jets
Zuerlein has been great on fantasy throughout the past few years and has been a solid option for the Jets this season. Zach Wilson doesn't have the offense playing exceptionally well, but they’ve been good enough to get points on the board in a lot of drives. Zuerlein is a kicker they will give a number of chances. They also have a ton of trust in their defense, so they will take the points whenever they can.
Dustin Hopkins, Cleveland Browns
The Browns offense is awful with or without Deshaun Watson. Hopkins will continue to get a ton of kicking opportunities. He’s a veteran kicker who the Browns are not afraid to put on the field to take points. Just like the Jets, the Browns have a great defense to where they can take three points more than not when they get in opposing territory.
