Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys:

Availability: 70%

Week 7 Stats: 273 Passing YDS, 1 Passing TD, 33 Rushing YDS, 1 Rushing TD, 2 Fumbles: 20.2 PTS

Albeit on a bye this weekend, Dak Prescott needs to be rostered in all leagues. He’s averaging nearly 25 FPTS per game over his last two contests and he just acquired a dynamic new weapon with the addition of Amari Cooper.

Brock Osweiler, Miami Dolphins:

Availability: 96.3%

Week 7 Stats: 239 Passing YDS, 2 TD, 17.8 PTS

Brocktoberfest continues this week on Thursday Night Football against the Texans and the Dolphins’ signal-caller has been stellar in his first two starts. Injuries to Albert Wilson and Kenny Stills will require Brock Osweiler to up his game for prime-time, and he is my top streaming option this weekend.

Kapri Bibbs, Washington Redskins:

Availability: 99.1%

Week 7 Stats: 13 Rushing YDS, 4 Receptions, 43 Receiving YDS, TD, 15.6 PTS

As much as I do not trust the Redskins’ offense, while filling in for Chris Thompson, Kapri Bibbs is a viable low-end flex option for the foreseeable future with the disbarring at the running back position. A matchup at home this weekend against the Giants sets up a great opportunity for Bibbs in the backfield.

Christian Kirk, Arizona Cardinals:

Availability: 81.7%

Week 7 Stats: 3 Receptions, 57 YDS, 8.7 PTS

The Cardinals’ offense is a dumpster-fire, and that is exactly why Byron Leftwich has been given the reins of the play calling. As inconsistent as Josh Rosen has been to start his young career, he has shown a respectable rapport with rookie wideout Christian Kirk. The young receiver has hauled in at least three receptions in six out of seven games so far and has a terrific matchup on Sunday afternoon against a week 49ers secondary.

Danny Amendola, Miami Dolphins:

Availability: 75.6%

Week 7 Stats: 6 Receptions, 84 YDS, TD, 20.4 PTS

Averaging seven receptions per contest over the past two games, Danny Amendola’s target share is bound to increase this weekend after the injury to Albert Wilson. He has developed a good rapport with Brock Osweiler and has a great matchup on Thursday Night Football against a decimated Texans’ secondary.

Courtland Sutton, Denver Broncos:

Availability: 91.4%

Week 7 Stats: 1 Reception, 28 Receiving YDS, TD, 9.8 PTS

With the trade-deadline on the horizon, the Broncos could be looking to sell, and one of their most inquired about players, is veteran wideout Demaryius Thomas. Even with Thomas in the mix of things, rookie standout Courtland Sutton has accrued at least 8 FPTS in four of his past five games, and if the former is shipped off before the deadline, Sutton’s target share will skyrocket.

Patriots D/ST

Availability: 52.4 %

Week 7 Stats: 31 PA, 2 INT, 2 TD, 14 PTS

Week 8 Matchup: AT BUFFALO
