Week 7 Recap
Finally! A week where we can actually feel good about what we accomplished. I hope all of you had just as good of a week as myself. I won around 90% of my H2H games and had some pretty good cashes in GPP’s. If Landry Jones hits Antonio Brown for a TD, I would be going to sunny San Diego to battle it out for a shot at the WFFC Title. Oh well, I’ll take my shot again in a week or two, but for now, it’s all about continuing to build up that bankroll!
It’s time to turn the page to Week 8, but first, here’s your recap!
Seattle 20 – San Francisco 3
- Colin Kaepernick has lost his confidence. It’s bad. I don’t remember seeing an NFL QB this bad after being so good. Well, Peyton….
- Carlos Hyde is playing with a stress fracture in his ankle. Pay attention to this going forward.
- Seattle forgot how to use Jimmy Graham just one week after we thought they were starting to figure it out.
- The offensive line has still not figured it out. They have allowed Russell Wilson to be sacked the most in the NFL.
Buffalo 31 – Jacksonville 34
- Jacksonville is going to chuck the ball all over the field. Keep targeting both Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns. I prefer Robinson for cash and Hurns for GPP’s.
- T.J. Yeldon looked really good, he is going to be someone I feel we can use consistently the second half of the season.
- The Bills offense is better with Tyrod Taylor, his running ability opens the pass game up and allows LeSean McCoy to have more space to operate as well.
Tampa Bay 30 – Washington 31
- Jameis Winston looked like a First Round draft pick in this one. Vincent Jackson left this game with an injury so we need to keep an eye on that.
- Mike Evans is underpriced and it’s not his fault. Due to the inconsistent play of Winston, he is a great value right now.
- “YOU LIKE THAT?!?!” Kirk Cousins looked like he took a step forward. He should be someone we look at in GPP.
- The RB spot for the Redskins is a mystery.
Atlanta 10 – Tennessee 7
- This game was ugly. Devonta Freeman and Julio Jones are the only Falcons in play.
- Tennessee should be getting Marcus Mariota back this week. Keep an eye out.
New Orleans 27 – Indianapolis 21
- Andrew Luck will still get his numbers, but imagine what he could be putting up if he was actually able to hit his WR more consistently.
- T.Y. Hilton finally had that breakout game we we’re waiting on. Don’t expect this every week, but this should show you what he is capable of.
- I still can’t figure out how New Orleans scored 27 points. Drew Brees didn’t look that great, but that’s expected on the road.
Minnesota 28 – Detroit 19
- Stephon Diggs has hopefully taken over the top WR role for the Vikings. He’s the only pass catcher we can count on.
- Calvin Johnson is starting to look like Megatron again. He doesn’t have the speed he once did, but when your that big, you can make up for it a little bit.
- I want no part of the Detroit backfield. The Lions just fired their OC so we shall see how this changes things.
Pittsburgh 13 – Kansas City 23
- Landry Jones…You have broke my heart again. I thought we we’re over this. He did make Antonio Brown relevant again. Big Ben should return this week. Lock and Load!
- Charcandrick West looked like the back we expected to see LAST week. Thanks.
- Travis Kelce needs to get more work, Jeremy Maclin should return from a concussion this week, but it doesn’t matter, Andy Reid hates your fantasy teams.
Cleveland 6 – St. Louis 24
- McCown suffered a shoulder injury, Manzeil came in, but now could be suspended. This will decrease Gary Barnidge’s value, but might increase Travis Benjamin a little.
- St. Louis: TODD GURLEY….that is all.
Houston 26 – Miami 44
- Arian Foster tore his Achilles. The DeAndre Hopkins from Bryan Hoyer combo will now be an every week thing.
- This is the Miami team that we thought we were getting in Week 1. It’s amazing what happens when you give the ball to Lamar Miller.
- The Dolphins are loaded with fantasy relevant plays going forward. Don’t be afraid to target them.
New York Jets 23 – New England 30
- Brandon Marshall is a stud. Eric Decker is a semi stud. Both can survive in this offense, but Decker just didn’t get the looks.
- Chris Ivory is toughing it out. He’s not 100% and won’t be the rest of the year. Be careful.
- I don’t think there is a lot to analyze about the Patriots. Gronk, Brady, Edelman. LaFell and Amendola are both GPP when Edelman has a tougher matchup.
- Dion Lewis should hopefully return from an abdomen injury soon. Blount is in play until then when they have a good matchup on the ground.
Oakland 37 – San Diego 29
- Amari Cooper is a stud. Derek Carr is going to throw the ball a lot (DUH!)
- Michael Crabtree actually has 7 more targets than Cooper, and he left a game early. He’s a great cash game value option right now.
Dallas 20 – New York Giants 27
- I’m not falling into the Darren McFadden trap. Although his good game has just made this backfield more of a cluster. He will get all the passing down work though. If the Cowboys are supposed to be playing from behind, he’s a great GPP option to save some value.
- Tony Romo can’t come back fast enough.
- The Giants are a mess, Eli looks off, he’s not getting Odell the ball that much, and the RB situation now has a fourth added to it.
Philadelphia 16 – Carolina 27
- Everyone wants to blame this on Bradford, and while he hasn’t looked great, he’s not getting any help either. The Eagles dropped 7 passes this last weekend and now lead the NFL in drops.
- Jordan Matthews will continue to get the targets just because he’s the best WR they have, but expect it to be painful.
- Chip Kelly still hasn’t learned how to use DeMarco Murray and there is no rhyme or reason to his RB rotation.
- Cam Newton is Cam Newton. There will be games where he runs for 2 TD’s, and ones where he throws for 2 TD’s. Game script should dictate when and where to play him.
Baltimore 18 – Arizona 26
- Baltimore has had the chance to either tie or take the lead in the fourth quarter of every game this year. That has to be heart breaking.
- Steve Smith and Justin Forsett are going to get their production. They are safe to play in good matchups.
- CJ2K! Wow, he’s found the fountain of youth. Not the same speed as 2009 but he’s running with a lot of authority and looks really good.
- Carson Palmer will continue to spread the ball around to his three WR. They are all in play in GPP’s along with Jermaine Gresham in good matchups.
There you have it! Week 7 in the books! Look for the Week 7 lineup reviews and Week 8 Lineup construction this evening!
