Best Week 7 Fantasy Football Players by Position
Week 7 Top 3 For Free!
Matt Ryan – Matty Ice is in another great position to have a big week. He looked good last week at Minnesota and his stud WRs looked healthy. Detroit is going to struggle mightily trying to keep up with Atlanta’s explosive offense.
Kyler Murray – Expect the Cards to upset the Seahawks. The way to do that is to score more than them. Seattle’s defense has been bad all season. Kyler will have plenty of time to throw because Seattle only has 9 sacks throughout the season which is 23rd in the NFL. Murray will also have lanes to take off running. The Cards continue their current win streak and score over 30 points for the third straight week.
Joe Burrow – The frontrunner for rookie MVP continues to impress. He has already faced this Browns defense once this season in Week 2. Burrow threw for 316 yards and 3 TDs in that contest and will match or exceed that in this game.
Big Risk Big Reward Play: Derek Carr. Carr has a sneaky good matchup this weekend. Although Tampa Bay’s defense has been stout this year, I believe Ruggs or Waller could have an impact early in this game but also expect some garbage time points if the Raiders are trailing by a lot late in this one.
Aaron Jones – Aaron Jones has been a model of consistency this season. The Texans are giving up 177 yards rushing per game on the ground and also rank in the bottom half of the league in pass defense. Jones will have 20 plus touches with over 130 total yards and at least 2 TDs.
Alvin Kamara – Kamara and the Saints are fresh off a bye. They have a home date with Carolina and I am sure we will see the Saints play to their ability. Kamara continues to be the do it all guy for the Saints and scores multiple TDs in this one.
Ronald Jones – 3 straight games with 100 yards rushing for Mr. Jones. The Raiders give up 126 yards per game on the ground so there will be room for Rojo. He’s been averaging 20 carries these past three games so look for the productivity to continue in Las Vegas.
Big Risk Big Reward Play: Jalen Richard. Richard is the pass catching back for the Raiders and will get used this week against a tough Tampa defense. The Raiders need everyone to step up and Richard could be a threat catching the ball out of the backfield for Las Vegas.
DK Metcalf – Metcalf is having such a strong sophomore season. This game against the Cardinals will be tough for Seattle and I have them losing in the desert. Therefore, more passes and more opportunities for DK!
Stefon Diggs – Clearly the WR1 in Buffalo, Diggs gets the Jets this Sunday. He had 8 catches for 86 yards in their Week 1 meeting with the Jets. Expect Diggs to build off of that performance with over 100 yards and at least one score.
Calvin Ridley – Ridley is in a great spot against Detroit at home. Minus the Green Bay game he has been unguardable. Neither Detroit or Atlanta has played great defense this season so this one will be a track meet which is only good news for Ridley owners
Big Risk Big Reward Play: Kendrick Bourne. I like Bourne to sneak into the top 10 this week. New England is known for its defense and taking away top options for opposing offenses which in this case is George Kittle. Bourne will most likely get the 3rd or 4th best cover guy New England has and SF will be in a tight contest all game. Throw Bourne in if you have a few guys hurt or on a bye.
Hunter Henry – The Chargers are coming off a bye. The Jaguars are one of the worst defenses in the NFL. This is a no brainer. Look for Henry to have a breakout game.
Albert Okwuegbunam – If you do not know the name, you will after the Broncos play the Chiefs. Okwuegbunam finally got in the statbook last week against New England and will look to be an additional weapon for Drew Lock. The Broncos will need to score points and have urgency this week against KC. Pick this guy up in waivers right now.
Jared Cook – Fresh off the bye, the Saints are ready to show everyone their potent offense. Carolina does not have a LB or S that can matchup with Cook anywhere on the field and especially not in the red zone.
Big Risk Big Reward Play: Logan Thomas. Thomas has not been super productive but he has been fairly consistent. He is a nice redzone target for Washington. Play him if you have a need at TE.
Matt Prater – Prater will have plenty of opportunities this week against an Atlanta defense giving up 30 points per game. Expect at least 3 FGs and 3 XPs.
Harrison Butker – The Chiefs will be leading against the Broncos all game. Butker will have opportunities all throughout the game to keep the Chiefs ahead. Easy money
Younghoe Koo – Koo has been money recently. Atlanta also does not have that great of a redzone offense which is a big reason why Koo is doing what he is doing. This game against the Lions is a track meet waiting to happen.
Buffalo – The Bills get the lowly Jets. Expect them to suffocate Sam Darnold or Joe Flacco especially since they have already played them once this season and are familiar with what the Jets like to do offensively.
LAC – The Chargers are going to play lights out against a below average Jaguars offense. Melvin Ingram might play but nonetheless, the Chargers will have a day against the 1-5 Jags.
New England – New England lost last week to Denver but not because their defense. The Patriots are still one of the best coached defenses and know they have to stop the 49ers run game and George Kittle. It will be an easy task for them and I predict they will score via interception or fumble return.
