The Week 7 start-em, sit-em list is full of great value and big time playmakers for your fantasy football team. Building your winning lineup is difficult, but these few tips could help make that process a little easier this weekend.
There are only two teams on a bye this week, so we have more players to choose from to win in fantasy football for Week 7. Only Detroit and Houston are off this weekend, so you still have to replace some great players however.
Week 7 sees division rivals in the NFC East facing off for first place and many other intriguing matchups for us to look at this weekend. Football is always exciting, but this could shape up to be one of the more exciting weekends of the season. Hope you’re ready.
Now let’s take a look back at how last week’s start-em, sit-em list fared.
San Francisco 49ers
Week 6 Hits: Deshaun Watson (HOU) start-em, Jared Goff (LAR) sit-em, Alvin Kamara (NO) start-em, Ty Montgomery (GB) sit-em, Martavis Bryant (PIT) sit-em, Kyle Rudolph (MIN) sit-em.
Week 7 Misses: Deandre Hopkins (HOU) start-em, Jordan Reed (WAS) start-em.
Somehow Week 6 saw Deshaun Watson throw for three touchdowns and not one went to Deandre Hopkins. Even a healthy Jordan Reed couldn’t produce for the Redskins last week. And New Orleans rookie Alvin Kamara continued to impress.
Keep the hits coming and avoid anymore Jordan Reed mistakes this week, that’s the goal here.
Start-em: Carson Wentz (PHI) vs. Washington
Philadelphia looks like they made the right decision in drafting Carson Wentz second overall in last season’s draft. He has done nothing but improve and impress in his early career. Now he has the Eagles battling for a division title in just his second season.
Wentz is going to be in a shootout this week against Washington. Both teams have secondary injuries that will make it difficult to stop these high-powered passing attacks. That means big fantasy football points for Wentz and Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins. They are both great starts this week.
Washington’s top corner Josh Norman has been battling injury all season, and Wentz is going to take advantage of that in Week 7. Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is bigger and faster than anyone that the Redskins can put out there to defend him. Wentz is going to be looking his was a ton.
Wentz has seven touchdowns in his last two games. Touchdowns are what fantasy football players look for when choosing a quarterback. He is in store for another three or four touchdowns in Week 7. Get all the players you can into your lineup this week from this Eagles and Redskins matchup.
Other options: Kirk Cousins (WAS) @ Philadelphia and Mitchell Trubisky (CHI) @ Carolina
