The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ruled out Antonio Brown for Week 7 on Friday. That probably means more targets for Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, O.J. Howard, and Cameron Brate. It also means Fantasy managers are scrambling for replacement wide receivers in leagues. With six teams on a bye and multiple major injuries, it's not a great week to be looking.

I'll have deeper league options available below, but the first thing you need to look for are a pair of receivers available in just under a third of leagues; Robby Anderson and Hunter Renfrow.

Anderson is rostered in about 70% of leagues, which both seems way to high based on his production and way too low based on the 29 targets he's seen over the past three weeks. He also has a great matchup against the Giants.

We have no reason to believe, at 28 years old, that Anderson forgot how to catch. His 37.5% catch rate this year is 20 points lower than his career average. If you gave him his career efficiency, with his year-to-date targets, Anderson would have 23 catches for 312 yards. He'd rank as a solid WR3 between DeVonta Smith and Chase Claypool (another receiver we won't have this week). 

Renfrow is 68% rostered and he's been much better than Anderson. He has double-digit Fantasy points in every game but one this season. The Eagles have played a lot of two-deep overage this season to prevent the big play, which should open up the middle of the field for Renfrow. 

Both Renfrow and Anderson are good No. 3 options this week. If they aren't available, see the names below.

Here is the rest of the Week 7 WR Preview:

Numbers to Know
  • 36.3% -- Davante Adams leads the NFL with a 36.3% target share.
  • 51.4% -- Brandin Cooks is the only wide receiver to account for more than half of his team's target share.
  • 174 -- Jakobi Meyers has now seen 174 career targets without a touchdown. He had one called back last week.
  • 9 -- Keenan Allen ranks fifth at receiver with nine red-zone targets. It's a great time to buy low on him.
  • 18.4 -- Henry Ruggs' 18.4 aDOT is tops among receivers with at least 30 targets.
  • 6 -- Laviska Shenault leads all receivers with six broken tackles. I'm trying to hold him through the bye.
  • 290 -- Despite already having his bye, Deebo Samuel still leads all receivers in yards after the catch.
  • 19.1 -- Antonio Brown leads all Tampa Bay receivers with 19.1 PPR Fantasy points per game.
  • 33 -- Sterling Shepard has 33 targets in the three complete games he's played this season.

I'm getting very close to just calling Darnell Mooney the No. 1 receiver on the Bears. His skillset appears to fit better with Justin Fields than Allen Robinson's, which helps explain Mooney's 27% target share and 34% air yards share.

St. Brown has at least seven targets in three straight games and it should be a pass-heavy game script against the Rams.

I'm hopeful Aiyuk can get things going off the bye. You can't start him, but he's worth a roster spot just in case.

Hill has been a roller coaster this season, but against a bad Titans secondary as the third-highest priced receiver on the slate, I like it. The Titans have given up a league-worst 33 Fantasy points per game to wide receivers.

I'm going right back to the well with Cooks even if the matchup is much more difficult this week. He's the No. 19 receiver in Fantasy this season and he's priced like a No. 3. The pricing is especially egregious considering a third of the guys who have been better than him aren't playing this week.
