Week 7 Fantasy Football Start/Sit & Waivers


So here we are, Week 7, or as it has now been dubbed... "Bye-mageddon". With so many top fantasy assets on their bye week this week, it's going to be a headache to set your lineups and decide who to start or sit. So @K_H_Ray, @ZTwiceFF, & @MattFFDynasty are here to help you with their weekly Start/Sits and hopefully help guide you to a Week 7 victory.


Teams on their Bye Week:

Pittsburgh Steelers

Buffalo Bills

LA Chargers

Jacksonville Jaguars

Minnesota Vikings

Dallas Cowboys

 

Quarterback

 

Starts

Start Of The Week

Sam Darnold @ NYG (@K_H_Ray)

The former Trojan is coming off two lack-luster weeks after a hot start to the season. Everyone knew the rushing touchdowns would level off (5 through 4 weeks), but his efficiency was quite low against the Eagles (57%) and the Vikings (42%). But don't let that get you down! He's still slinging the rock on average 37 times per game and has two great matchups coming up. This week it's the Giants who rank 27th against QBs this year and give up over 2 touchdowns per game. This is a great week for Darnold to get back on track. He's an easy top 12 play during Byemageddon.

Matt Ryan @ MIA (@MattFFDynasty)

Matt Ryan was my waiver selection this week in 1QB leagues and I think he is a great start this week against the Dolphins. They have struggled on defense for most of the season and are coming off a tough defeat in London against the Jags. With Ryan likely having his star WR Calvin Ridley back this week and also refreshed after their bye week, I expect Ryan to carry on the form he showed in London in Week 5 where he threw for 342 yards and 2 TDs.


Derek Carr Vs PHI (@ZTwiceFF)

After the Gruden debacle, Las Vegas came out firing with a big win in Denver. They rediscovered the big play and Carr played well, throwing for 341 yards with 2 TDs. With a home game against Philly this week I expect fireworks and another solid outing for Carr. Fire him up as a safe fringe QB1 with upside.

 

Sits

Sit of the Week

Zach Wilson @ NE (@ZTwiceFF)

Coming off the bye there is a chance Wilson plays well. I'm not banking on it considering his season worst performance last time he faced NE. Belicheck thrives against young QBs and it showed with Wilson throwing 4 interceptions in week 2. With this week being in Foxborough, I wouldn't expect much better from Wilson and the Jets.
