Deshaun Watson

It seems like since the firing of coach Bill O’Brien the old Deshaun Watson may be back for fantasy football!! Watson has strung together 2 games of over 325 yards passing and 3TDs along with at least 25 yards rushing in each game. These are huge weeks for Watson who had not been as productive for fantasy football purposes to start the season. This improvement comes at exactly the right time as Watson will be facing the Green Bay Packers in what I expect will be an absolute shoot out. The Packers are allowing the 11th most fantasy points to opposing QBs and the game script should lend itself towards Watson passing early and often. I expect Watson will have another stellar performance in week 7. Fantasy Projection: 270 yards 2 TDs passing 29 yards 0.4 TD rushing

Matthew Stafford

Matthew Stafford did not have a very inspiring fantasy football performance in week 6, but we have to keep in mind that this game was a blow out. Stafford should have had a great game against a weak Jaguars secondary, but only put up 223 yards and 1TD. I think alot of this performance had to do with the game script and the amount of rushing the Lions ended up using. I am sticking with Stafford in week 7 when he faces the Atlanta Falcons who are allowing by far the most points to opposing QBs. Especially with Julio Jones back on the Falcons offense I expect this game will be a shootout where Stafford will rack up fantasy points. Fantasy Projection: 311 yards 2 TDs

Kareem Hunt

I understand that the points you got out of Kareem Hunt in week 6 were very disappointng, but stick with him and you will reap the benefits. Hunt managed to accumulate 40 yards on the ground and 17 yards through the air on two reception in week 6. Please keep in mind this performance was against the Steelers who are allowing the fewest points to opposing RBs. This week Hunt will face the Bengals who are allowing the 13th MOST points to opposing RBs and this should be a much closer game where the Browns could look to run the clock down with Hunt. I expect a bounce back showing from Hunt in week 7. FantasyProjection: 71 yards 0.5 TDs rushing 4 receptions 26 yards 0.2 TDs receiving

Ronald Jones II

Ronald Jones has looked like the RB1 we have been hoping he would be over the last 3 weeks. Jones has rushed for over 100 yards in the last 3 games and had over 2 receptions in each game as well. In week 6 he took it to another level and added 2 rushing touchdowns for a 25+ point week in .5 PPR. Jones is being used as a work horse back and he is looking like an absolute bruiser in the rushing game. Jones will face the Raiders in week 7 who are allowing the 2nd MOST points to opposing RBs. I expect Jones will put up another RB1 performance in week 7. Fantasy Projection: 78 yards 0.5 TDs rushing 2 receptions 20 yards 0.1 TDs receiving

Julio Jones

Well Julio Jones looked back and healthy in week 6 when he returned to the starting lineup against the Minnesota Vikings. Julio had 8 rececptions for 137 yards and 2 TDs in a statement game to his fantasy managers and any doubters out there. The entire Falcons offense looked better just having Julio back in the lineup and I’m sure QB Matt Ryan is happy he is healthy. The schedule continues to be pretty for Julio who will lineup agaisnt the Detroit Lions who are allowing the 7th most fantasy football points to opposing WRs. I also expect that this game will be shootout as both pass defenses are pretty terrible and both offenses will need to pass to keep up which will benefit Julio. Fantasy Projection: 7 receptions 95 yards 0.5 TDs

Keenan Allen

Keenan Allen should be healthy in week 7 coming off of a bye week in week 6. Prior to his injury in week 6, Allen had put together 2 weeks in a row with 13 and 8 receptions respectively 194 total yards and 1 TD. Allen looks to be the number 1 target again for Herbert in the Chargers passing attack. Allen will face the Jaguars in week 7 who are in the middle of the pack against opposing WRs. I believe Allen will put together another big game in week 7. Fantasy Projection: 7 receptions 75 yards 0.4 TDs

George Kittle

George Kittle is an absolute animal at the TE position and is going to continue to be a top 2 option each week. In week 6 Kittle faced the LA Rams and put up 7 receptions for 109 yards and 1 TD for another 20+ point fantasy week. Kittle will face the New England Patriots in week 7 who are allowing the 5th fewest fantasy football points to opposing TEs. The Patriots have always been very good at taking away their opponents top option and for the 49ers that is George Kittle. I don’t expect a massive game from Kittle in week 7, but due to the lack of options at the position there will not be many ranked over him even in a tough matchup. Fantasy Projection: 6 receptions 69 yards 0.4 TDs
