Fantasy Football WEEK 7 PLAYER RANKINGS

By Michael H. Osinski

If we score more points than they do, we have a really good shot at winning.
 
That is PC sportsspeak. You hear a lot of that around Week 7 because this is usually when the separation starts to happen. Most leagues have a 5-1 team and a 1-5 team. All the teams in the middle don't quite know where they go.
 
I got 2 4-2s and a 3-3...I think my 3-3 is the best team. But, one of my 4-2s is primed and ready to go 11-3. Why? Matchups.
 
Matchups affect player rankings like air allows you to breathe.
 
I started 1-3 in 2012 and finished 10-4. It was matchups.
 
Now, you can try to figure out the matchups when you draft, but let's be honest...nobody is that smart. You can be smart enough to not draft 6 guys with the same bye (Week 9 this year), but drafting for week-to-week matchups is computer smart stuff.
 
You think I am wrong...or off? Let's look at Tony Romo. I advised my Brother to target him in round 11 in a 12 team draft(I was targeting Vick in round 11). My bro got him. He is a happy fantasy owner (Besides the Cobb injury) right now.
 
Romo has been lights out...and who knew his matchups for the rest of the season would be so good? I consider myself an expert...and I did not...
 
So matchups is why Romo is again #1 in the QB pecking order...
 
QB
 
1. Romo (DAL) ...PHI has been good for QBs.
2. Rivers (SD)...It's JAX for chrissakes!
3. Luck (IND)...who has not thrown well vs DEN?
4. Manning (DEN)...lowest I have had him this year...
5. Cutler (CHI)...I advised someone to play him over Stafford
6. Rodgers (GB)...just getting into stride..despite loss of cobb
7. Freeman (MIN)...He is playing the Giants...I'd score 15.
8. Henne (JAX)...They are playing SD.
9. Newton (CAR)...he is Cam.
10. Ryan (ATL)...not sure who he throws to...but he throws.
11. Stafford (DET)...They throw like 90 times a game...
12. Wilson (SEA)...I know they are on the road...he still wins.
13. Kaepernick (SF)...the wave is forming..
14. Brady (NE)...way low...just one of those weeks...
15. RGIII (WSH)...pocket passer now...
 
Best of the rest? I have Foles subbing for Vick in 2 leagues and don't have faith. Henne is good vs SD. Flacco maybe this week. Everybody else blows.
 
RB
 
I traded for McCoy. This week is one of those reasons why.
 
My Brother has Steven Jackson. I made sure he claimed Joseph Randle. He has a playoff caliber team...Randle will help more than Zac Stacy (Who he played last week).
 
1. McCoy (PHI)... not cuz I own him in my league of record. He will will get 150 total yds and a TD...21?
2. Charles (KC)...on a roll n vs a good pass defense...will run for 120...catch for 50...1 TD...
3. Peterson (MIN)...about time...
4. Moreno (DEN)...he is better than Mathews...
5. Martin (TB)...when?
6. Lynch (SEA)...Just cuz...
7. Foster (HOU)...even vs KC 25 touches is a bushel...
8. CJ Spiller (BUF)...it is coming...
9. Forte (CHI)...normal
10. Williams (CAR)...all about matchup
11. Miller (MIA)...coming off bye... probably gonna get 20 carries
12. Morris (WSH)...Helu not carrying the rock...
13. Bush (DET)...good and catches too...
14. Gore (SF)... solid...from The U...
15. Rice (BAL)...a hunch he is gonna get the ball
16. Ivory (NYJ)...Talent...and he is gonna get touches...
17. TRich (IND)...use him...
18. Lacy (GB)...like him...
19. Bell (PGH)...20 carries...
20. Woodhead (SD)...obviously about the catches...
 
WR
 
Again...about matchups...or ability. I caught a little shit for ranking Blackmon #3 last week. He had 20 targets 14 catches and 190 yards. Let's rethink this. He has SD this week...he is #1. 
 
1. Blackmon (JAX)...Especially w Shorts ailing...
2. DEZ (DAL)...He gets a good matchup
3. Jackson (PHI)...DAL has not stopped anyone...
4. Green (CIN)...I am good
5. Nelson (GB)...Cobb is out...
6. Welker (DEN)...safety valve...
7. Allen (SD)...watch his WW activity next week...
8. Cruz (NYG)...#1 option
9. Marshall (CHI)..I am who I am...
10. Thomas (DEN)...Deep TDs are good...
11. Megatron (DET) health?
12. Garcon (WSH)...quietly sneaking in to top 10
13. Douglas (ATL)...someone catches TDs...
14. Hilton (INDY)...just like him
15. Nicks (NYG)...Hunch
16. Gordon (CLE)...I can throw him TDs
17. VJackson (TB)...just get him the ball...
18. Brown (PGH)...catches everything
19. Smith (BAL)...just cuz
20. Johnson (HOU) ...he aint dead
 
TE
 
The position got deep all of a sudden. But, bye weeks loom and Garret Graham is not your friend. Deal with it.
 
1. Gonzalez (ATL)...with all the other guys gone, who is trustworthy?
2. Thomas (DEN)...rebound...
3. Finley (GB)...benefits from Cobb out...
4. Davis (SF)...He n CK are BFFs
5. Witten (DAL)...matchup
6. Miller (PGH)...safe...sound....
7. Gates (SD)...fountain of youth for now...
8. Cameron (CLE)...talent
9. Fleener (IND)...hunch
10. Reed (WSH)...hunch
 
DEF
 
OK, if u have SEA, SF, KC, NE, CAR u just play them...
 
For the others....
 
MIA
SD
GB
 
K
Just take guys playing in domes...
 
good luck...
