  1. Patrick Mahomes, KC QB vs. CIN
  2. Jared Goff, LAR QB at SF
  3. Kirk Cousins, MIN QB at NYJ
  4. Tom Brady, NE QB at CHI
  5. Matt Ryan, ATL QB vs. NYG
  6. Cam Newton, CAR QB at PHI
  7. Andy Dalton, CIN QB at KC
  8. Jameis Winston, TB QB at PHI
  9. Matthew Stafford, DET QB at MIA
  10. Drew Brees, NO QB at BAL
  11. Carson Wentz, PHI QB vs. TEN
  12. Andrew Luck, IND QB vs. BUF
  13. Philip Rivers, LAC QB vs. TEN
  14. Joe Flacco, BAL QB vs. NO
  15. Mitch Trubisky, CHI QB vs. NE

Jameis Winston came back from his BYE week with attitude last week throwing for 395 yards and 4 TD as well as adding 31 yards on the ground. Winston did have one of the best matchups against the Atlanta Falcons who are currently 4th worst against the pass on a passing yards per game basis. This week Winston will take on the Eagles who are 10th worst against the pass. Although this is a slightly worse matchup I still expect Winston will need to move the ball in order to keep up with the Eagles. This will be a common occurrence this season especially with how bad the Buccaneers defense is. Winston is ranked at QB 8 for week 7. Fantasy Projection: 330 yards 2.5 TDs

Who needs top notch receivers? Definitely not Andrew Luck, who seems to land in the top 10 QB every week regardless of the matchup. Against the Jets in week 6, Luck threw for 301 yards and 4 TDs even without his top target T.Y. Hilton. This week Luck takes on the Bills who are 6th best against the pass, but with the amount of volume Luck is passing each game I still project him as a top 12 QB. Look for Luck to perform as a QB 1 with or without Hilton back on the field. Fantasy Projection: 300 yards 2 TDs

Running Back
  1. Saquon Barkley, NYG RB at ATL
  2. Melvin Gordon, LAC RB vs. TEN
  3. Todd Gurley, LAR RB at SF
  4. Kareem Hunt, KC RB vs. CIN
  5. Ezekiel Elliott, DAL RB at WAS
  6. Joe Mixon, CIN RB at KC
  7. David Johnson, ARI RB vs. DEN
  8. Alvin Kamara, NO RB at BAL
  9. Sony Michel, NE RB at CHI
  10. Christian McCaffrey, CAR RB at PHI
  11. Mark Ingram, NO RB at BAL
  12. Carlos Hyde, CLE RB at TB
  13. James White, NE RB at CHI
  14. LeSean McCoy, BUF RB at IND
  15. Adrian Peterson, WAS RB vs. DAL

David Johnson may not have quite lived up to his top 4 ADP status so far, but he is being utilized more and has a nose for the end zone. In each of the past 3 weeks, Johnson has had 20 or more touches and has scored 5 TDs in the past 4 weeks. The Cardinals are recognizing the need to use Johnson and fantasy owners are being rewarded with touchdowns. This week Johnson takes on the worst team against the run in the Denver Broncos who are allowing 161 yards on the ground per game. If you were waiting for a break out David Johnson game this is his best shot at it. I have Johnson ranked as RB7 in week 7. Fantasy Projection: 75 yards rushing 1 TD 3 receptions 30 yards 

In the week 5 Mark Ingram came back from his suspension and completely dominated the rushing attack for the Saints. Ingram rushed for 53 yards and 2 TDs while adding 20 yards through the air on 2 receptions. Although Ingram played the workhorse back role in week 5, I expect his workload will be reduced after giving Kamara a break in week 5 and having time to rest over the week 6 BYE. I still believe that the Kamara/Ingram duo can both find themselves in the top 12 RB most weeks like they did in 2017. This week the Saints face the Ravens who are 3rd best againts the run which is why I favor Kamara for week 7. I expect Ingram will still be the RB11 or better this week. Fantasy Projection: 65 yards .5 TDs 2 receptions 23 yards

  24. Marquise Goodwin, SF WR vs. LAR
  25. Josh Gordon, NE WR at CHI

What is there to say about Adam Thielen other than he is an absolute BEAST and is making his case to be a top 3 WR draft pick next year. Thielen has had over 100 yards receiving in every game this year and has 4 TDs so far. Every week Thielen is Mr. Reliable and puts up HUGE numbers for his fantasy owners. This week Thielen is the FantasyProjection #1 receiver facing the New York Jets. The Jets are tied for 8th worst against opposing receivers and Thielen is the hottest receiver they have seen yet. I completely expect Thielen will shred the Jets secondary and wind up with well over 100 yards again. Fantasy Projection: 10 receptions 141 yards 2 TDs

Well Hello Mr. Goodwin! Marquise Goodwin finally showed up in a game and balled out against the the Packers for 126 yards and 2 TDs. This is exactly the version of Goodwin that we thought we would see this season. This week Goodwin take on the Rams who are 11th best against opposing receivers. This is not the best matchup for the speedster, but now that we finally see a spark between him and Beathard he finds himself within the top 25 WRs ranked for week 7. Goodwin will be a boom bust option and is best utilized in your flex as he always has high upside. Fantasy Projection: 3 receptions 45 yards .5 TDs

Tight Ends
  1. Travis Kelce, KC TE vs. CIN
  2. Rob Gronkowski, NE TE at CHI
  3. Zach Ertz, PHI TE vs. CAR
  4. Eric Ebron, IND TE vs. BUF
  5. David Njoku, CLE TE at TB
  6. George Kittle, SF TE vs. LAR
  7. O.J. Howard, TB TE vs. CLE
  8. Trey Burton, CHI TE vs. NE
  9. Austin Hooper, ATL TE vs. NYG
  10. Jordan Reed, WAS TE vs. DAL
  11. Kyle Rudolph, MIN at NYJ
  12. Greg Olsen, CAR TE at PHI

Eric Ebron has quietly been putting on a TE clinic in the absence of Jack Doyle. Ebron has 4 TDs and over 200 yards receiving over the past 3 weeks. Luck seems to always look for Ebron in the red zone and with the TE position being fairly weak this year he is a sight for sore eyes. Ebron faces the Bills this week who are a tough opponent against receivers, but Ebron’s connect with Luck will win out. Fantasy Projection: 5 receptions 55 yards 1 TD
