Fantasy football Player Projections: Breaking down Week 7
Quarterbacks and receivers seem to have taken over the NFL. This week, you'll be happy if you have one of the stud running backs.
Adrian Peterson, Jamaal Charles and LeSean McCoy are all set to go off in Week 7. Charles and McCoy top the running back ranks through six weeks. Peterson will join them after torching the Giants on Monday night.
Who else is in line for a big day? Who will disappoint their owners? Let's find out with the Week 7 projections.
Click the position labels below for the full list of projected player rankings, and click the team logos, paired by matchup, to see projected stats of each game.
If anyone could treat a game against the team for which he played for 13 years as just another game, it's Manning. Something tells me he might have a little something extra, though.
Going up against the hapless Redskins, Romo severely disappointed his fantasy owners last week. He'll make up for it against the Eagles.
Cutler missed some throws against the Giants, but his owners are happy. This matchup is too good to pass up, too.
I'm running out of things to say about Charles, and it's just Week 7. Houston is allowing 4.2 yards per carry this year, making Charles a solid bet to top 100 yards.
The Giants allow 19.1 fantasy points per game to running backs. Peterson will increase that average on Monday night.
McCoy totaled 171 yards from scrimmage last week, while the Cowboys allowed the Redskins to run for more than 200 yards. He should have a huge day.
Bryant should make up for last week's game against a Philadelphia defense that is the league's worst against wide receivers in fantasy terms.
Jackson didn't skip a beat with Nick Foles at the helm, catching six passes for 64 yards and two TDs. Dallas allows 24.8 fantasy points per game to wide receivers.
In two games this year, Blackmon has 19 catches for 326 yards and a TD. He racked up an insane 20 targets last week. He's a true WR1.
Gonzalez stands to benefit from Julio Jones injury in the form of more targets. I'm sliding him up my rest-of-season rankings a few notches.
Witten caught three passes for 27 yards in a lackluster performance for the entire passing game. Philadelphia has been tough on tight ends this year, but you're starting Witten no matter what.
Davis was a beast last week, catching eight passes for 180 yards and two TDs. He could see a lot of corner Alterraun Verner, who Pro Football Focus grades as the best corner in the league thus far.
Sturgis is 10-for-11 on field goals this year, including three from 50-plus. He should be started every week from here on out.
Tucker made his only field goal last week, a chippy from 23 yards. He's 12-for-14 this season.
After two weeks of double-digit scoring, Hauschka made just two field goals last week, both after he passed concussion tests.
The Chiefs absolutely dominated the Raiders, posting 10 sacks, three interceptions and a touchdown. They could make T.J. Yates' life rough.
Remember a few weeks ago when people thought this defense maybe wasn't what it was the last two years? I think we can put that notion to bed. Start the Niners with extreme confidence this week.
I love this matchup for Miami coming off a bye. If they're available in your league, get them now.
