Fantasy Fix: Week 7 rankings

Fantasy Fix: Week 7 rankings

Here we go, the Week 7 fantasy football rankings. This week is trickier than normal for owners considering the number of potent players out because of byes, including Aaron Rodgers, Matt Forte, A.J. Green and Demaryius Thomas. Then you have the Sunday morning matchup overseas between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills. Also keep an eye on the status on the likes of injured players Marcus Mariota, Dion Lewis, Dez Bryant, Jordan Reed and DeSean Jackson.

I'll certainly do that and will update my rankings/talk about the players over the weekend. This is primarily a Twitter thing, but also note I'm part of the Comcast SportsNet weekly fantasy football show which first airs Friday's at 6:00 p.m. and reairs several times including Sunday morning at 11AM. Speaking of Twitter, shoot me your questions and we might use it on the show. Cool? Cool.

Players I like more than normal this week: Carson Palmer, Philip Rivers, Blake Bortles, Todd Gurley, Lamar Miller, Christine Michael, Charles Sims, Larry Fitzgerald, Keenan Allen, Stefon Diggs, Pierre Garcon, Dorian Green-Beckham, Antonio Gates, Delanie Walker, Jacob Tamme

Players I like less than normal this week: Joe Flacco, Chris Ivory, Dion Lewis, Jordan Matthews, Kendall Wright, Jordan Reed, Heath Miller.

Lineup and roster scenarios worth watching heading into Sunday: Cowboys backfield (Christine Michael, Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden), Bills quarterback (Tyrod Taylor, E.J. Manuel), Ravens tight end (Crockett Gillmore, Maxx Williams), Patriots backfield (Dion Lewis, LeGarrette Blount), Brown backfield (Duke Johnson, Isaiah Crowell, Robert Turbin)

Chris Simms: Why Dwayne Haskins has 'Big Ben Roethlisberger-type talent'

Chris Simms: Why Dwayne Haskins has 'Big Ben Roethlisberger-type talent'

It did not take long for Dwayne Haskins to win approval from the media and the Redskins coaching staff in a short amount of time at OTAs. 

That excitement from the Redskins OTAs has reverberated across the country and made him the feature of NBC Sports' Chris Simms QB School series. There, the current NFL analyst and former NFL quarterback made big comparisons to the No. 15 overall pick Haskins to Super Bowl champion Ben Roethlisberger. 

Simms was enthralled with the skillset that Haskins possesses and his potential. Citing his arm talent and the small mechanics of the 22-year-old, Simms thinks he has all the tools to be a top-tier NFL QB.

"He reminds me a lot of a big Ben Roethlisberger with his style of football play. [Haskins] arm is special, there's no doubt about that," Simms said. 

Comparing a rookie QB to a two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback that has made six All-Pro teams is not too shabby. Roethlisberger has thrown for over 54,000 yards in his career with 363 touchdowns across his NFL career. They both wear No. 7, both played their college ball in Ohio, and both are known for their ability to hurl a football down the field. 

Some of the strong qualities of Haskins that Simms highlighted were his tight and quick arm motion, his controlled body rotation, and the accuracy down the field. At the same time, he pointed out that Haskins has a tendency to drop his elbow on passes, forcing his passes to sail high. 

"[Haskins] has Big Ben Roethlisberger-type talent and I know he's already wowed some people down there in Washington in his first few practices."
