Fantasy Football -- Week 7 rankings

Week 7 is here and comes after another injury-heavy set of games that knocked out Aaron Rodgers likely for the season and put the status of Leonard Fournette and Jameis Winston into question. Everyone is left trying to figure out Plan B's and also dealing with the Texans and Lions on byes.

Quarterbacks

1.  Tom Brady, NE
 
2.  Drew Brees, NO
 
3.  Dak Prescott, DAL
 
4.  Matt Ryan, ATL
 
5.  Carson Wentz, PHI
 
6.  Cam Newton, CAR
 
7.  Kirk Cousins, WAS
 
8.  Russell Wilson, SEA
 
9.  Alex Smith, KC
 
10.  Marcus Mariota, TEN
 
11.  Tyrod Taylor, BUF
 
12.  Jameis Winston, TB
 
13.  Carson Palmer, ARI
 
14.  Ben Roethlisberger, PIT
 
15.  Jared Goff, LAR
 
16.  Brett Hundley, GB
 
17.  Derek Carr, OAK
 
18.  Philip Rivers, LAC
 
19.  Blake Bortles, JAC
 
20.  C.J. Beathard, SF
 
21.  Case Keenum, MIN
 
22.  Trevor Siemian, DEN
 
23.  Andy Dalton, CIN
 
24.  Josh McCown, NYJ
 
25.  DeShone Kizer, CLE
 
26.  Jay Cutler, MIA
 
27.  Jacoby Brissett, IND
 
28.  Eli Manning, NYG
 
29.  Mitch Trubisky, CHI
 
30.  Joe Flacco, BAL

Notes:  The usual QB2 worth starting this week is Taylor against a Bucs defense allowing the second-most points to fantasy quarterbacks. That Buffalo doesn't have an impressive receiving corps doesn't help, but the matchup puts Taylor into a better situation than Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers. ... Brett Hundley, good luck replacing a legend. That he has Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Martellus Bennett means his numbers might be good enough for fantasy owners. Hosting New Orleans screams shootout under normal circumstances. Even if you prefer waiting before using, Hundley is worth a pick-up for those needing a QB2 or another QBBC option.

Running backs

1.  Kareem Hunt, KC
 
2.  Le'Veon Bell, PIT

28.  Frank Gore, IND
 
29.  Orleans Darkwa, NYG
 
30.  Ty Montgomery, GB
 
31.  Isaiah Crowell, CLE

57.  Jalen Richard, OAK
 
58.  Shane Vereen, NYG
 
59.  DeAndre Washington, OAK
 
60.  Charcandrick West, KC

Notes: Talk about a trade working out (so far) for both teams. Shipping Adrian Peterson to Arizona opened the Saints to actually feeding Mark Ingram. Meanwhile, the Cardinals turned the backfield over to their new guy and Peterson delivered (134 rushing yards, two touchdowns). Now he faces a Rams defense ranked 32nd, or last, against fantasy running backs this season. ... Buck Allen has turned into a steady option, especially in PPR formats. Just be leery using him in standard against a Vikings defense surrendering a league-low 15 fantasy points per game to running backs.

59.  Donte Moncrief, IND
 
60.  Zay Jones, BUF
 
61.  Cole Beasley, DAL
 
62.  Brice Butler, DAL
 
63.  Marquise Goodwin, SF
 
64.  Jamison Crowder, WAS
 
65.  De'Anthony Thomas, KC
 
66.  J.J. Nelson, ARI
 
67.  Jeremy Kerley, NYJ
 
68.  Terrance Williams, DAL
 
69.  Torrey Smith, PHI
 
70.  Adam Humphries, TB

Notes: That massive Dez Bryant is coming. Like this week. Let's call for 7-135-1 against a 49ers suspect and thin secondary. By the way, it's so bizarre Dallas cannot find a steady WR2 after all these years to help take the pressure off Dez, right? ... Seeing as the Redskins could be without both of their top cornerbacks this week, Alshon Jeffery isn't the only Eagles receiver worth starting. Nelson Agholor enters Week 7 with touchdowns in back-to-back games. He also had a season-high six receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown in Philadelphia's Week 1 win at Washington. 

Tight ends

1.  Rob Gronkowski, NE
 
2.  Zach Ertz, PHI
 
3.  Travis Kelce, KC
 
4.  Jimmy Graham, SEA
 
5.  Evan Engram, NYG
 
6.  Delanie Walker, TEN
 
7.  Austin Seferian-Jenkins, NYJ
 
8.  Cameron Brate, TB
 
9.  Jordan Reed, WAS
 
10.  Hunter Henry, LAC
 
11.  Kyle Rudolph, MIN
 
12.  Austin Hooper, ATL
 
13.  Jason Witten, DAL
 
14.  George Kittle, SF
 
15.  Zach Miller, CHI
 
16.  Jared Cook, OAK
 
17.  Ed Dickson, CAR
 
18.  Nick O'Leary, BUF
 
19.  Jack Doyle, IND
 
20.  Martellus Bennett, GB
 
21.  Benjamin Watson, BAL
 
22.  Tyler Kroft, CIN
 
23.  Vernon Davis, WAS
 
24.  Coby Fleener, NO
 
25.  Tyler Higbee, LAR

Notes: Rob Gronkowksi is the king of all tight ends. In the Week 7 matchup against Atlanta, Austin Hooper has a chance to do so some Gronking against a Patriots defense allowing nearly one touchdown a game to tight ends and the third most points. ...With Charles Clay sidelined, Nick O'Leary becomes the main tight end for the Bills against a Bucs defense struggling against the pass. ...It's understandable if you're a Jordan Reed owner frustrated at watching Vernon Davis proving the more effective of Washington's tight ends. Don't sit Reed. Hang tight. The upside is worth it even if Reed doesn't look quite right physically.

Fantasy Football -- Week 6 Waiver Wire

giants-evan-engram.png

Fantasy Football -- Week 6 Waiver Wire

Here are the best Week 6 waiver wire pickups for NFL fantasy football.

Quarterbacks

Bye week: Dak Prescott, Russell Wilson, Andy Dalton, Tyrod Taylor 

Jacoby Brissett -- Not a great pool of options for those in need this week, but the Colts starter looks like the best bet. Indianapolis faces a Tennessee defense allowing the fourth-most points to fantasy quarterbacks and the most touchdown passes (tied with New England). Brissett put up solid points in recent games and he'll provide some help with his legs. Not bad for beggars can't be choosers scenario.

Case Keenum -- Shrugs. Pick Josh McCown at home against the Patriots or Brian Hoyer against a Redskins defense without Josh Norman if you want. Of these three, I'll lean Keenum because 1) He has the best receiving weapons with Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Kyle Rudolph and 2) the likelihood of having to play catch up or at least keep up against Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers.

Be concerned: Eli Manning. Forget not starting. Manning probably shouldn't be on rosters anymore now that Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall are out for the season. There's simply not enough not upside for now. See where things are at in a few weeks when Sterling Shapard returns from his injury the Giants start using rookie tight end Evan Engram more on the outside. 

Running backs

Bye week:  Ezekiel Elliott, LeSean McCoy, Joe Mixon, Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy

Jerick McKinnon --

Marlon Mack -- Owners were told to grab Mack late in drafts because the Frank Gore ride will eventually derail and the rookie's all-around game made him the most likely replacement. There hasn't been a takeover, but Mack went for 91 yards and a touchdown on nine carries last week. Don't feel compelled to force Mack into your Week 6 lineup, but he's certainly worth a sign-and-stash.

Adrian Peterson -- The RB-needy Cardinals acquired Peterson from the Saints Tuesday. if available, he's worth a flyer simply based on opportunity. Arizona's backfield remains a mess following David Johnson's injury. The thing is, the offensive line isn't helping the cause which means Peterson won't have tons of help. Still, if he receives 12-18 touches per game, that's hope and that's worth taking a small risk if needed.

Be concerned: Isaiah Crowell has scored a total of 24 fantasy points this season. Seeing as Duke Johnson is making plays and the Browns don't exactly move the ball with ease, Crowell becomes a potential cut option for those aiming for a home run addition.

Others: Wayne Gallman, Elijah McGuire, Samaje Perine

Wide receivers

Bye week: A.J. Green, Dez Bryant, Doug Baldwin, Cole Beasley

Will Fuller -- Don't hesitate. Grab the Texans speedster if he's available after scoring four touchdowns over the last two weeks. DeShaun Watson is cruising and going next level with Fuller now in the lineup after an early injury.

Marvin Jones -- This is a strickly Week 6 recommendation. The Lions and Saints should keep the Superdome scoreboard operators busy. New Orleans's secondary is certainly beatable. That's it, that's the call. Jones is fine generally and perhaps better than that in this potential shootout.

Others: Josh Doctson, Cooper Kupp, Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace, Roger Lewis

Tight ends

Bye week: Jimmy Graham, Jason Witten, Charles Clay 

Evan Engram -- This call might not work for most leagues, but the rookie is a must-own following Sunday's injury nightmare. Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall are done for the season along with Dwayne Harris while Sterling Shepard is out a couple of weeks. The thing is, Eli Manning will still throw 30+ passes and somebody will be targeted on each. The best for lots of work among those not in the backfield is Engram, who has already flashed impressive skills early in his first season.

Austin Sefarian-Jenkins -- He helped needy owners out last week with 6-29-1 and now faces a Patriots defense allowing oodles of production to fantasy tight ends.

Others: Ryan Griffin, Zach Miller, David Njoku

Defenses
Streamers:  Patriots (@ Jets), Redskins (vs. 49ers), Falcons (vs. Dolphins)
