Fantasy Focus: Week 7 Sleepers
Bye weeks are messing with fantasy football owners this week with the likes of Aaron Rodgers, Matt Forte, Emmanuel Sanders and Tyler Eifert out. Here are some plug-and-play options to help.
QB Blake Bortles – Jaguars (vs. Bills)
In just six games this season, Bortles has already thrown more touchdown passes than all of last season. He’s currently the fifth highest scoring fantasy quarterback and faces an underachieving Bills secondary in week seven.
2. Brian Hoyer (at Dolphins)
3. Ryan Fitzpatrick (at Patriots)
4. Nick Foles (vs. Browns)
RB Christine Michael – Dallas Cowboys (at Giants)
In sporting news, it appears that Jason Garrett and the Cowboys are going to give Michael a chance to earn the starting job this Sunday. If Michael able to succeed, expect Garrett to roll with him for weeks to come.
2. James Starks (BYE)
3. Knile Davis (vs. Steelers)
4. Theo Riddick (vs. Vikings)
WR Marvin Jones – Cincinnati Bengals (BYE)
Jones has cemented himself as Dalton’s secondary target in the Bengals’ offense. He’s been targeted 20 times over the last two games and scored a touchdown last week. He’s a solid WR2 against poor defenses and should be more of a regular in ASL's fantasy updates going forward.
2. Kamar Aiken (at Cardinals)
3. Stefon Diggs (at Lions)
4. Stevie Johnson (vs. Raiders)
TE Benjamin Watson – New Orleans Saints (at Colts)
Watson made fantasy news last week when he had the best game of his career, catching 10 passes, accumulating 127 yards and scoring a touchdown. Watson is a 6’3” athletic tight end who has the potential to be Brees’ go-to target in the red zone.
2. Heath Miller (at Chiefs)
3. Crocket Gillmore (at Cardinals)
4. Austin Seferian-Jenkins (at Redskins)
