Fantasy Football Week 7 Early Waiver Wire: Sam Darnold's return brings Jamison Crowder, Robby Anderson back
Get the latest insights @FantasyFootballToday
Sam Darnold made his return from a four-week absence due to a bout of Mono and he showed us what we've been missing from this Jets offense in Week 6. Though they couldn't quite sustain for the full 60 minutes in a win over the Cowboys, Fantasy players got a glimpse of the potential that put the likes of Darnold, Robby Anderson, and Jamison Crowder in the sleeper and breakout discussions before the season.
Darnold got the offense going early, finishing the game 23 of 32 for 338 yards and a pair of touchdowns, with just one interception. 125 of those yards went to Anderson, most coming on a 92-yard touchdown that perfectly summed up what the offense had been missing during the Luke Falk era. Anderson hauled in five of eight passes thrown his way overall and should be one of the top waiver priorities heading into Week 7 now that Darnold is back.
And Crowder should be right there behind him. He caught six of the nine passes thrown his way, both of which led the team, while finishing with 98 yards of his own. He was Darnold's safety blanket in the first game of the season and has 26 targets in the two games Darnold has played, compared to just 14 in the other three games.
Anderson brings the big-play ability, while Crowder keeps the chains moving, but we've learned this season they need Darnold to make it all work. The Jets like to keep their starters on the field as much as possible, which means there really isn't very much competition for targets outside of Anderson and Crowder, which means they should continue to see healthy work.
The only downside to adding Anderson and Crowder is the schedule, which sees them facing the Patriots in Week 7, followed by a matchup with the Jaguars. They will likely be low-end starters for those matchups, but then they face the Dolphins, Giants, Washington, Raiders, Bengals, and the Dolphins again in a six-week stretch beginning in Week 9 that could carry you through the Fantasy playoffs.
I don't want to say Anderson and Crowder could be league-winning adds, but given the way the schedule lines up, you'll want them on your side down the stretch.
