You know that feeling during your draft when you starting selecting your players and pay little attention to their bye weeks?
"I'll worry about that later."
We've all been there. And truth be told, that's the way to go. For starters, the team you draft is not the team you'll finish the season with. You're constantly tinkering, so paying too much mind to a bye week that's two months after your draft is a bit fruitless. Secondly, even if your roster is largely stagnant, you don't want to build a team that is too focused on one or two weeks of action. You need 18 weeks of upside.
Alas, Week 7 is one of those weeks when everyone is going to have to adjust a bit, as we've reached the first six-team bye of the season and there are some heavy hitters.
Players on a bye this week include: Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, Dalton Schultz, Stefon Diggs, Josh Allen, Emmanuel Sanders, Zack Moss, Dawson Knox, Dalvin Cook, Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, Najee Harris, Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, James Robinson, Marvin Jones Jr., Austin Ekeler, Mike Williams, Keenan Allen and Justin Herbert.
We're all filling in this week together. ... With that in mind, here is the Week 7 ESPN fantasy waiver wire.
Note: Players on this column must be available in at least 50% of leagues on ESPN.
Week 7 byes: Bills, Chargers, Cowboys, Jaguars, Steelers, Vikings
