Fantasy football waiver wire adds and drops after NFL Week 7

Here's some fantasy football advice.

The 2015 NFL season is nearly at the halfway mark. If you're looking to make changes to your fantasy football roster via the waiver wire, here are some additions and subtractions to consider.

Add

Lions TE Eric Ebron

Detroit's second-year tight end is coming off the best game of his season. The No. 10 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft finished with five receptions on five targets for 89 yards and one touchdown in the Lions' loss to the Vikings. Ebron's longest catch of the day went for 55 yards, which is a reminder that he has big play ability.

Lions RB Ameer Abdullah

Another Lions player. Detroit used Adbullah more than any other of their other running backs during the team's loss to Minnesota. He finished with eight carries for 43 yards, which comes out to a 5.3 average. No other running back received more than three rushing attempts. There are concerns about his usage given the fact the Lions like to get Joique Bell and Theo Riddick involved, but Abdullah could be the most productive rusher of the bunch.

Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews

Matthews caught three receptions on three targets for 75 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 7. He's playing the most snaps of any Dolphins receiver not named Jarvis Landry. Miami appears to be rejuvenated under interim head coach Dan Campbell.

Drop

Washington RB Alfred Morris

Morris finished with five yards on six carries and one reception for two yards in Washington's win. Over the past two weeks, Morris has only managed to gain 41 yards on 25 attempts, which comes out to a paltry 1.64 average. Washington rookie Matt Jones didn't play well against Tampa Bay, but his nine attempts for 29 yards were at least better than what Morris provided.

Lions RB Theo Riddick

Riddick really only offers value as a flex option in PPR. The Detroit running back carried the ball three times for 8 yards against Minnesota. He did have three receptions for 40 yards, however.

Vikings WR Charles Johnson

The emergence of 21-year-old rookie Stefon Diggs has ensured Johnson is now the fourth receiver in Minnesota. Johnson has been targeted a total of 10 times this season, with only four of those targets coming since Sept. 27.
