David Johnson vs. Green Bay Packers.
Im usually not one to promote playing David Johnson as Im not very high up on him as a dream gamer. Coming off a solid RB1 week versus the Titans he is set up for success yet again in Week 7. He will be facing a Packers Defense that beside last in points permitted to the position (28.0 FPPG) and enables 6.8 FP over the average in scoring. They have actually had back-to-back weeks allowing several goals to opposing RBs and we all saw what Ronald Jones did to this defense. Now the multi-faceted Johnson will get his turn and could turn in yet another RB1 scoring week for dream managers.
Week 6 in the NFL brought what might be one of the cleanest weeks of action to start the season. With no disastrous injuries impacting teams for the rest of the year, the play on the field seemed to settle in as the more well-known gamers carried out up to par. With huge weeks from Derrick Henry and Julio Jones, along with others, it seemed like all was right with the world. Now the question will be can they keep it up, or will we go back to the wild and goofy thinking video game that is dream football?
Now that we are six weeks into the NFL season the crystal ball is becoming more clear. Which is what we are seeing if you look at positional rankings over the very first six weeks. With several weeks of information at our disposal, sifting through to set optimum lineups need to be fairly easy.
That is what we offer for you here with the Woos and Boos of Week 7. I take a look at those under the radar plays that ought to be considered beginning alternatives for the week, while likewise pointing out the household names that could be in for disappointing weeks based on hard matchups.Editors Note: Get any full-season NFL Premium Pass for 50% off.
Tee Higgins vs. Cleveland Browns.
Higgins continues to shine each week as the targets have actually been constant considering that Week 3. I see him as a WR3 going into the week with WR2 advantage and need to be beginning in all lineups.
Logan Thomas vs. Dallas Cowboys.
Thomas reappeared from his vanishing act in Week 6 as he found the end-zone for the very first time given that Week 1. There might be some sort of rapport between him and Kyle Allen as Thomas recorded a season-high 42 yards on four targets, finishing as TE9 on the week.

Coming off a strong RB1 week versus the Titans he is set up for success yet once again in Week 7. Thomas reappeared from his vanishing act in Week 6 as he found the end-zone for the first time since Week 1. Sure, he recorded an RB1 surface a week ago (his first because Week 1) and is currently 2nd in rushing lawns (505 ).
Tyler Higbee vs. Chicago Bears.
Aside from his three-score game in Week 2, he has actually not found the end-zone. This week he deals with a tough road yet again as the Rams face a Bears Defense that allows simply 7.8 FPPG to opposing TEs. With the poor play to begin the season, Higbee could be a gamer that a lot of fantasy supervisors ought to be benching this week and utilize the waiver wire to stream a much better match.

Week 7 Woos.
Matthew Stafford @ Atlanta Falcons.
The beneficiary of “Who plays the Falcons?” today will be Stafford. He has actually been an up-and-down entertainer to begin the season and is valued as a QB2 most weeks. The offense has actually been without a completely healthy Kenny Golladay and the passing offense was struggling without him. Now with Golladay back, the Lions will be facing the worst defense in fantasy in points permitted to opposing quarterbacks (29.9 FPPG). The defense has continued to play badly, allowing at least three goals in each video game other than one (Week 5). Look for that to continue today as the Stafford/Golladay connection is primed for a big day.
Week 7 Boos.
Drew Brees vs. Carolina Panthers.
My how the mighty have fallen. What pre-owned to be a perennial top-5 QB, Brees has actually had the ability to muster only two QB1 finishes on the season. He ranks 20th in passing yards (1,331) and 28th in air lawns (1,010), revealing that there is an objection to take the shot down the field for the huge play. This week might yet again be a battle dealing with a Panthers Defense that is one of the best in the league in points allowed to the QB (14.6 FPPG). With Michael Thomas again in concern for this offense in Week 7, beginning Brees might be a dangerous proposition for fantasy managers.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire @ Denver Broncos.
There are multiple factors here in play as I take a look at Edwards-Helaire for Week 7. The majority of fantasy managers will be beginning him, or in a position to have to start him. With LeVeon Bell set to make his group launching, and dealing with an extremely stout Broncos run defense (12.1 FPPG, best in the league), Edwards-Helaire could struggle to find consistency. Sure, he tape-recorded an RB1 surface a week earlier (his first since Week 1) and is presently second in rushing lawns (505 ). He ranks simply 16th in yards-per-carry (4.6) and 14th in averted deals with (25 ). Try to find the sure-tackling Broncos to bring him down early, eliminating his possibilities to get to the second level. He still will be played by dream managers in Week 7, however make sure to temper expectations.
Allen Robinson @ Los Angeles Rams.
Robinson, bad quarterback play aside, remains the WR9 on the season. He requires plenty of targets to do his damage in matches as his capability to enter into the end-zone has just not existed (two TDs on the season). He is fourth in the league in receptions (40 ), third in air lawns (674) however just 23rd in scoring. Expecting a quality start from him against a tough Rams secondary (16.3 FPPG, best in dream) will be a bit much to ask. He is another gamer that dream managers will remain in a position to need to play, but the possibility that he scores all right to help you win will be very little.
