Bye weeks will be a huge factor in Week 7. Four of the top-10 fantasy quarterbacks thus far will be on bye, including QB1 Josh Allen, QB7 Justin Herbert and QB9 Dak Prescott.

If you need some help navigating the waiver wire, here are our top three streaming quarterbacks, rostered in fewer than 50% of Yahoo! fantasy leagues, to target in Week 7.

Streaming QB Week 7

3. Justin Fields, QB, Chicago Bears (32% Rostered)

The Chicago Bears have refused to let Justin Fields loose so far, which has made him an extremely unreliable producer. He has yet to reach even 13.3 fantasy points in any of his four starts. But Chicago will almost certainly have to lean on the rookie in Week 7. It's virtually impossible to run the ball against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who allow a league-low 54.8 rushing yards per game while sitting No. 5 in rush defense DVOA. Meanwhile, the Bucs' secondary is remarkably banged up, allowing the sixth-most passing yards per game in the league. With Chicago being 12.5-point underdogs against a beatable pass defense, Fields should be a legitimate fantasy option in Week 7.

2. Daniel Jones, QB, New York Giants (33% Rostered)

Daniel Jones doesn't have the best matchup, but he has been a very consistent producer. In five healthy appearances, Jones has recorded at least 16.5 points four times. He has also put up 21.0-plus points three times, and at least 26.0 twice. Jones draws a tough matchup against the Carolina Panthers, but his rushing output should give him a decent enough floor. As a 3-point underdog, Jones should be asked to handle a decent amount of volume in Week 7.

1. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins (18% Rostered)

Tua Tagovailoa isn't the most exciting play in the world, but he recorded a top-12 finish in his return to the field in Week 7. The Miami Dolphins QB threw for 329 yards with 2 touchdowns to 1 interception against the dreadful Jacksonville Jaguars' secondary. Now, he gets a date with the Atlanta Falcons, who, just like the Jaguars, are a bottom-three pass defense by DVOA. Miami is also expected to trail (2.5-point underdogs), so Tua should get plenty of looks against one of the league's worst pass defenses. That's exactly the type of matchup we want to target.
