Aaron Rodgers Pyro Character

1.       Aaron Rodgers (vs. Car - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #8 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Aaron Rodgers is off to a great start this season, since Week 1 he has thrown 14 touchdown passes with no interceptions. In the last three games alone he has thrown for 10 touchdowns. Aaron’s yards per game are down so far but his effectiveness in the red zone has been better then ever, seemingly throwing a touchdown every time the team gets the ball in deep. This week the Pack takes on Carolina who are allowing 18.5 fantasy points a game to opposing QBs so far this season. The Packer receivers should be able to get open against this Carolina secondary, and Rodgers will get them the ball when they are open. With how hot Rodgers is right now, just R-E-L-A-X and put him in your lineup.


Peyton Manning - Pyro Character

2.       Peyton Manning (vs. SF - Sunday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: NBC)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #31 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Peyton Manning has been up to his old tricks as of late. Over the last three weeks, Peyton has thrown for 1,091 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions. This week he welcomes the San Francisco 49ers to town, the second best in the league at defending quarterbacks, only surrendering 13.1 fantasy points per game. Peyton is by far the best quarterback they will have seen this year, and the fact that the game will be played in Mile-High also tilts toward Manning’s favor. The Broncos are struggling to get their running game going, which should continue in this game, but Peyton should be airing it out all day long. The 49ers are going to have to score points to keep up with Manning, and Manning has a way of destroying defenses like this on Prime Time games, as long as it is not the playoffs. Don’t be scared off by the matchup with the 49ers.


Andrew Luck - Pyro Character

3.       Andrew Luck (vs. Cin - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy


Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #14 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Luck continues to be the best in the game, and he helped his fantasy owners last Thursday night with 370 passing yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. The Stanford standout has thrown for three or more touchdowns in four of six games this season. He has also thrown for 300 or more yards in five of six games, with four of them going for 370 or more yards. He faces the Bengals this week, and there is good reason to be excited about this matchup. The Bengals defense is in disarray over the last two weeks, allowing Cam Newton and Tom Brady to combine for 568 yards with six passing touchdowns, one rushing, and one interception. Cam also let it loose on Cincinnati with 107 rushing yards. Luck should be able to exploit their defense on the fast turn in Indy, and is a must start once again.


Philip Rivers - Pyro Character

4.       Philip Rivers (vs. KC - Sunday, 4:05pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy


Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #21 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Philip Rivers has been on a roll over the last three weeks. He has three touchdown passes in each game, and has only thrown one interception over that span. Rivers has also been dominant in passing yardage, with 978 yards over his last three games. Now he welcomes division rival Kansas City to town, and he will look to build on the success he had against them last year. In their two meeting last season, the Chargers won both games. Rivers was fantastic, throwing for 621 yards, with six touchdowns and only one interception. Philip is on fire right now, and he needs to stay in your starting lineup again this week.

 

 

Jay Cutler - Pyro Character

5.       Jay Cutler (vs. Mia - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #18 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Jay Cutler has been a huge value this season, as he is currently the fourth leading scorer among quarterbacks. Against the Falcons on Sunday Cutler put together his best game of the season to date, throwing for 381 yards, the second highest yardage total in his career. He threw for just one touchdown, but drove the offense up and down the field all game long, so his owners were still very pleased with the outcome. Cutler is currently second in the league in completions and should continue to torch through defenses for fantasy owners. This week Cutler will take on a Miami Dolphins team that is average against quarterbacks. Their pass rush could cause some problems for the Bears however, as the Bears starting tackles are both either injured or struggling. Cutler should have his full offensive arsenal at full strength yet again and provide another solid week for his owners.


Cam Newton - Pyro Character

6.       Cam Newton (at GB - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #30 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Cam finally broke out last week, and it was because of his legs that he scored a season high 38.9 fantasy points. Cam ran the ball 17 times for 107 yards and a touchdown. Prior to last week Newton only had 42 rushing yards on the season. This week he will travel to Green Bay to face the Packers, who have won three games in a row. The Packers are doing a good job against quarterbacks, only giving up 14.9 fantasy points per game, but they have allowed 155 rushing yards per game. Expect Newton to use his legs once again, which makes him a much better fantasy threat this week. The Panthers are going to have to keep up with the Packers offense, which should give Cam good numbers by the end of this game.

 

 

Kirk Cousins - Pyro Character

7.       Kirk Cousins (vs. Ten - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #20 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Cousins has been inconsistent for Washington, but he has put up pretty good numbers in fantasy this season. Last week, in a loss, Kirk threw three interceptions, but he also threw for 354 yards with two touchdowns, which made him the tenth best quarterback on the week with 25.7 fantasy points. This week the Titans come to town, and over the past three weeks they have allowed 974 passing yards against them. While one of those games was Andrew Luck, the other two were Brian Hoyer and Blake Bortles. Cousins should be able to connect on a deep play with DeSean, and he should score north of 20 fantasy points again this week.


Tony Romo - Pyro Character

8.       Tony Romo (vs. NYG - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  PROBABLE (Ribs/ankle) - Romo took a nasty hit early in the game last week against the Seahawks, but finished out the game in fine fashion. He sat out practice on Wednesday as he normally does, but was full on Thursday and will start Sunday afternoon.

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #23 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Tony Romo’s volume has been down to start the season, but his efficiency has been way up across the board. Last week against the Seahawks was the perfect example of this. Romo completed 65% of his passes for 2 scores and 250 yards through the air. With Romo’s newfound efficiency and the strength of the run game and offensive line so far this season the Cowboys should be able to exploit defenses with play action fakes and Romo has two of the best working the outside in Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams. With Witten still hauling in everything thrown his way and Murray gashing teams in the pass game as well Romo’s value is still very high.  As the Cowboys take on the division rival Giants Romo should be on your radar as Romo has had some of the best games of his career against the G-men.

 

Colin Kaepernick - Pyro Character

9.       Colin Kaepernick (at Den - Sunday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: NBC)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

  

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #17 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The 49ers face off against the Broncos for this prime time, Sunday night showdown. Only 12 teams are allowing more fantasy points to the quarterback position. It may appear as though Denver has been putting it together as of late. The Broncos have allowed just 7 touchdowns to be thrown by opposing QBs, only 4 teams have allowed less. But, your defense would look great too if you already had a bye and the last two QBs you faced were Geno Smith, and Drew Stanton. If you go back to before the bye week, Russell Wilson threw 2 TDS and 258 yards. He even turned in another 40 on the ground. Kaeppy is riding a bit of a hot streak. Last week he tossed 3 TDs with guys like Boldin and Lloyd stepping up for big games. If his #2 and #3 receivers keep putting up games, Kapernick will continue to have some big games. Now, if Harbaugh would just let him off the leash we would be talking serious fantasy goo!

 

 

Tom Brady - Pyro Character

10.     Tom Brady (vs. NYJ - Thursday Night, 8:25pm ET - TV: CBS/NFL Network)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  PROBABLE (Ankle) - He's starting, so play him as you normally would.

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #5 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Tom Brady has returned to fantasy relevance over the past two weeks. In that time he has thrown for 653 yards with six touchdowns and no interceptions. In the four weeks prior Brady only scored 55.3 fantasy points, but has 58.3 fantasy points over the last two weeks. This week Tom welcomes the Jets to Foxborough, and he has dominated them in his career with a 18-6 career record. The Jets are struggling to stop teams from passing against them, and are second worst in the league stopping quarterbacks, allowing 21.1 fantasy points per game. The Jets have only allowed one 300-yard passer against them, but they have given up 15 passing touchdowns and only intercepted one pass. Brady starts again this week.

 


Carson Palmer - Pyro Character

11.     Carson Palmer (at Oak - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  PROBABLE (Shoulder) - Palmer put in two limited practices before finally getting in a full of reps with the team on Friday. He's good to go once again and could definitely be used as a fantasy starter this weekend.

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #15 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Cardinals head west to face the Raiders on Sunday. Palmer is listed as questionable as of Thursday. He did practice Wednesday but was limited. For those worried about his return performance should breathe a sigh of relief. Last week, he threw 2 TDs and totaled 250 yards. Oakland has given up 9 TDs on the season with only 2 picks. Last week, they let Rivers go for over 300 yards and toss 3 TDs. Hell, even Tanehill threw for 278 yards and 2 TDs the week before that. Certainly keep your eyes on the injury report just in case there is a setback, but Palmer should be a go in Week 7.

 

Alex Smith - Pyro Character

12.     Alex Smith (at SD - Sunday, 4:05pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #24 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Smith is coming off the bye week, as well as his worst performance of the season in Week 5 against the 49ers. In the matchup against his former team, Smith only threw for 158 yards with one touchdown and one interception in a loss. This week Alex will face off against division rival San Diego, against whom he had his best game last season throwing for 294 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. In their last four meetings, the Chargers and Chiefs have averaged scoring 57.75 points per game. Last week the Chargers allowed multiple big pass plays against them by the Raiders, and Alex Smith will try to put those DB’s to the test again this week. While Smith does not have the best weapons at receiver, he should be able to post decent numbers in this usually high scoring matchup.

 

 

Derek Carr Pyro Character

13.     Derek Carr (vs. Ari - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  PROBABLE (Ankle/knee) - Carr was limited on Wednesday, but got in full sessions the rest of the week. He's a sneaky start this week for those with Nick Foles on a Bye.

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-3 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

 

Blake Bortles - Pyro Character

14.     Blake Bortles (vs. Cle - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)


Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #11 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

 

Russell Wilson - Pyro Character

15.     Russell Wilson (at StL - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #13 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Russell Wilson didn’t have his best game of the season last week against the Cowboys, and through a late interception that sealed the Seahawks fate, but is still a top 10 quarterback on the season, even though he has played 1 less game than most of his competition. Wilson’s numbers are up across the board as he is completing nearly 2/3 of his passes and has a 4 to 1 touchdown to interception ratio and is also averaging a sterling 7.1 yards per carry. Against the Cowboys on Sunday Wilson failed to throw two touchdown passes, for the first time this season! This week Wilson will get to take on a defense that was just torched by Colin Kaepernick for 343 yards and 3 touchdown passes. On the season the Rams have given up 18.3 fantasy points a game to opposing quarterbacks and Russell looks like he will be next in line to abuse them. Wilson has struggled against the Rams in the past averaging a passing touchdown and just 180 passing yards a game, but this Rams pass rush has completely deteriorated and exposed a very weak secondary so far this season.

 

 

Eli Manning - Pyro Character

16.     Eli Manning (at Dal - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #27 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Giants face the cowboys this Sunday in one of the late afternoon games. Oh Eli, say it ain’t so! It appears that Eli is back to his old ways. Knowing when to start this guy is damn near impossible. Now he is down a number 1 wide receiver in Victor Cruz who is lost for the season. This was his stretch of plug in weeks, this last month should have been solid instead of looking like the Rocky Mountains if his performance was charted on a line graph. Well, next week is their bye and it gets damn tough after that. My advice, if you have a starting QB who has yet to have his bye, make back up plans elsewhere. This week especially, only 3 other teams are allowing fewer fantasy points than the Cowboys. Let me put it another way, you are better starting Mike Glennon on a per game basis that Eli. Mike Glennon!

 

 

Drew Brees - Pyro Character

17.     Drew Brees (at Det - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy


 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #32 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Drew Brees is coming off a bye week, but it does not get easy for him upon his return. He will travel to Detroit to face the number one fantasy defense against quarterbacks. The Lions are only allowing 10 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Let’s make matters worse for Brees, because he is going to be without his best passing weapon, Jimmy Graham. Even with Jimmy, Drew and the Saints are 0-3 on the road this year, and Brees has only thrown five touchdown passes, with three interceptions in those games. The Lions have held opposing quarterbacks under 150 passing yards in three of their six games, and have yet to allow a 300-yard passer. Brees is a great quarterback, but this is not going to be great week for him.


Ben Roethlisberger - Pyro Character

18.     Ben Roethlisberger (vs. Hou - Monday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: ESPN)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #12 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Ben Roethlisberger has had an up and down start to the season, and the Steelers have gone as he has gone, with a record of 3-3 on the season. The Browns were able to beat to beat Roethlisberger for just the second time in his career, lucky for fantasy owners, his down week was last week. At home against the Texans this week Roethlisberger will get to take on a team that has been precisely average, allowing 16.6 fantasy points a game to opposing passers. Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton should be his main targets this week as the Texans are fairly good at defending opposing tight ends but really struggle against the oppositions wide receivers.

 

Andy Dalton - Pyro Character

19.     Andy Dalton (at Ind - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #25 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Andy Dalton has had some major regression in his fantasy game since last season, seeing as how is attempts are way down in Hue Jackson’s run centric offense. Dalton’s efficiency was reaching new heights before the Carolina game however as he had thrown just 1 interception. Dalton is completing nearly 70% of his passes so far this season and has a 2 to 1 touchdown to interception ratio. Dalton has also been without his best weapon, A.J. Green on the outside for half of the season, but when called upon to throw it more last week he responded with 323 passing yards and 2 scores to 2 interceptions. Dalton also had a field day against the Indy defense last season putting up 275 yards and 3 touchdowns. With his new favorite target Sanu functioning at a high level Dalton should be on your radar this week.

 

Brian Hoyer Pyro Character

20.     Brian Hoyer (at Jac - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #2 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Brian Hoyer has been making headway on keeping the job in Cleveland, last week he made his biggest step yet, beating the division rival Steelers. Hoyer has thrown for at least one touchdown in every game so far this season and are currently riding a two game winning streak into Jacksonville. Hoyer is being very diligent in protecting the ball and has thrown just 1 interception this season, but he is far from a quarterback fantasy owners are drooling over.  If you are looking for a safe bye week option who is going to put up 12-15 points then Hoyer is your man, but if you are expecting more it just isn’t going to happen as the Browns are committed to winning games on the ground. Even as Hoyer has a nice matchup against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars, who allow 19.8 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, it is hard to move Hoyer up the rankings, mostly due to his supporting cast at wide receiver and the talent they have showed running the ball so far this season.

 

 

Joe Flacco - Pyro Character

21.     Joe Flacco (vs. Atl - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #19 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)


Joe Flacco just had the game of his career in week 6 against the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneer secondary. Through six games so far this season Joe Flacco is on pace to shatter his previous career highs in yards and touchdown passes. Flacco has always had a big arm but with Torrey Smith and Steve Smith Sr. in the fold and Gary Kubiak calling the plays he is finally getting the chance to showcase it. Next up is Atlanta at home, and the Falcons secondary just surrendered a number of deep pass plays to the Bears a week ago, so Flacco should again be able to show off his big arm. The Falcons have actually been a decent team through the air this season, mostly because they are completely unable to stop the run and teams have focused on running the ball against them. The Ravens run game hasn’t been dominant by any means so expect Flacco to get a good number of looks this week.

 

 

Ryan Tannehill - Pyro Character

22.     Ryan Tannehill (at Chi - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  PROBABLE (Ankle) - Tannehill is just fine and will start on Sunday. No worries here.

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #16 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Tannehill has yet to light the fantasy world on fire this season, with only one game with more than 250 passing yards, and no more than two touchdowns in any game. Ryan has been more consistent over his last two performances with just over 25 fantasy points in each game. This week he will head to Chicago to face the Bears. The Bears defense did a good job last week on the road against Matt Ryan and the mighty Falcons passing attack, holding him to 271 passing yards with only one touchdown and an interception. The Bears have improved their pass rush, and Willie Young currently leads the league with seven sacks. Until the Dolphins and Tannehill show the potential that we have been waiting to see, he is better left on your bench for a better option.


Matthew Stafford - Pyro Character

23.     Matthew Stafford (vs. NO - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #7 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Saints head into Motown this Sunday. This is a revenge game for Reggie but also the Lions OC, Joe Lombardi. I think he will try to run it up against his former team, which should translate to points for Staff. I stress the word should, because in two games against the Saints, Stafford has only managed 1 TD and 4 picks. It has been prêt-ty, prêt-ty, prêt-ty, prêt-ty…BAD. That can be said for his past performances for this team, but honestly, for the year as well. If you look at the last few games, weeks 4-6, Stafford is rated quarterback #26 in the fantasy world. Take a look at Dawg’s rankings, which are always shifting, part of the reason he has been in the top 5 twice this year for accuracy, you may be surprised as to see who is ahead of Staff this week. You may go with another guy for week #7. Calvin will likely be out again. If last week is an indication, Golden Tate is a great number 2 but he has not shown he can slide into the number one spot. I do like Bush this week, Staff might pick up some points off that connection, but other than that, Staff will continue to struggle without Calvin.


Matt Ryan - Pyro Character

24.     Matt Ryan (at Bal - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #22 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Since his breakout season opener with 448 passing yards and three touchdowns, Ryan has not produced consistently for his fantasy owners. Since that game, Matty Ice has been cold, throwing for an average of 280 yards with nine touchdowns and seven interceptions in those five games. Ryan has been held under 20 fantasy points three times this season, and it should be four after this week. Matt is a different quarterback on the road, scoring nearly 10 fewer fantasy points than at home, and the Ravens have done a good job against quarterbacks, only allowing 15.4 fantasy points per game. The only reason the number is that high, is because Baltimore has been shutting down opposing teams running games, only allowing the Colts to run for more than 100 yards against them. Ryan is going to be in for a rough game this week.


Buffalo Bills QB - Pyro Character

25.     Kyle Orton (vs. Min - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #26 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)


Teddy Bridgewater - Pyro Character

26.     Teddy Bridgewater (at Buf - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #9 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Vikings travel east to play the Bills. So far, it seems it is the tale of the two Teddies. He has one game over 300 yards were he also ran one in, or two were he hasn’t even gotten to 200. He even tossed 3 INTs in one of those sub 200 games. Teddy has 0 passing TDs on the year so far. The one shinning light for Bridgewater is the fact that the Bills are so banged up. As of Thursday, they have 7 guys listed as questionable on the defensive side of the ball, all of them starters or major contributors. While Buffalo is middle of the road versus opposing QBs, they are soft against WRs. In fact, only five teams are giving up more fantasy points to the position. Zimmer called out Patterson last week, hopefully, the rookie steps up to the challenge. With Bridgewater, we just haven’t seen enough on tape yet. Until then, I will be looking elsewhere for my starting QB.

Houston QB - Pyro Character

29.     Ryan Fitzpatrick (at Pit - Monday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: ESPN)

 

Week 7 INJURY REPORT:  Healthy

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #28 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Fitzpatrick continues to be a quarterback to be avoided in fantasy football. In six games Fitz has six touchdowns and six interceptions, and has only thrown for more than 250 yards twice. Then consider that those two games where he threw for more than 250 yards, he has two touchdowns and five interceptions. This week he travels to Pittsburgh, and the Steelers are having their inconsistencies, but they are holding quarterbacks to 13.9 fantasy points, which is fifth best in the league. Expect that number to go down after they face Fitzpatrick this week. There are four key words to know when considering starting Fitpatrick this week…What are you thinking?

DeMarco Murray - Pyro Character

1.       DeMarco Murray (vs. NYG - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #8 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

DeMarco Murray silenced the critics and proved that he is matchup proof this season with his game against the Seahawks defense. Murray became the first back this season to rush for over 100 yards. In rattling off 115 yards Murray TRIPLED the previous high for a player (Montee Ball – 38 yards) this season. Murray has now rushed for over 100 yards for six straight games to open the season, joining some very exclusive company in the process. Murray now gets to take on the Giants who were just gashed by a previously struggling LeSean McCoy who was able to rattle off six runs of more than 10 yards. On the season the G-Men have allowed over 23 points a game to opposing running backs so this has the makings of being Murray’s biggest game yet.


Arian Foster - Pyro Character

2.       Arian Foster (at Pit - Monday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: ESPN)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #15 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Arian has been on fire the last two weeks, rushing for 266 yards, scoring four touchdowns, and adding another 47 yards on five receptions. That resulted in 55.3 fantasy points. Foster now has four 100-yard rushing games on the season, and has an impressive 4.8 YPC average. The good times should continue to roll this week as Foster pays a visit to Pittsburgh. The Steelers have been good against running backs this season, but last week the Ben Tate and Isaiah Crowell combined for 155 rushing yards with three touchdowns. The Texans force-feed the ball to Foster, so he should be able to exploit their defense to yet another 100-yard performance.


Le'Veon Bell - Pyro Character

3.       Le’Veon Bell (vs. Hou - Monday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: ESPN)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #14 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Le’Veon Bell has continued to pile up the yardage both on the ground and through the air so far this season. Last week against the Browns Bell rushed 18 times for 82 yards and hauled in 4 passes on his 6 targets for 23 yards. The only issue with Bell this season has been his lack of productivity in the touchdown department as he has hit paydirt just once this season and that was all the way back in week 1. Unfortunately for Bell the Steelers are one of the most pass heavy teams when they get in the redzone calling a pass play 63% of the time and when his number has been called (12 times) he has failed to reach the endzone. The Texans have allowed nearly 20 points a game to opposing runners so far this season and Bell should be the next in line to pick up some yards against the Texans rush defense, if only he could start finding the endzone like a 220+ pound running back should he would vault up the rankings on a weekly basis.


Matt Forte - Pyro Character

4.       Matt Forte (vs. Mia - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)


Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #18 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Matt Forte had his biggest game of the season last week against the Falcons and has strung together three awesome outing for owners who stuck by his side. Forte scored on the ground for the first and the second times this season on Sunday and now has scores in each of his last two games. Forte is now 2/22 in his redzone touches so far this season. With the amount of opportunities he is getting he should continue to score touchdowns in the coming weeks. This week against the Dolphins who are merely average against opposing running backs, Forte should continue to get it done in both the run and the pass game as he has all season. In his only career game against Miami Forte gained 97 yard and scored a touchdown so there is no reason this guy should be on your bench.

 

 

Cleveland Browns RB - Pyro Character

5.       Ben Tate (at Jac - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #10 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

When Tate plays he is the lead back for the Browns. Last week he only mustered 78 yards on 25 carries, but he also scored two touchdowns. This week he faces off against the Jaguars, who are the worst overall defense in fantasy, and are allowing 22.5 fantasy points to running backs. That defense has gotten tougher over the past three weeks, only allowing 223 total rushing yards to the Chargers, Steelers and Titans. The Browns have a solid offensive line, and Tate should be able to do damage against the Jags.

 

 

Jamaal Charles - Pyro Character

6.       Jamaal Charles (at SD - Sunday, 4:05pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #24 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Chiefs head west to face San Diego. San Diego has only allowed 1 rushing TD all year. They are in the top 3rd for fewest fantasy points allowed to opposing RBS. That said, they have given up 4 receiving TDs to opposing RBs; No other team has given up more. Really, Jamaal has played in three games really (in week 2 he totaled 5 offensive snaps). In that time, Jamaal has 9 receptions and 2 receiving TDs. Last week, Jamaal averaged 5.3 against a stout 49er defense. The week before, he averaged 5.1 against New England, where he also totaled over 90 rushing yards and scored a TD. If you are a Charles owner, he is in your line up.

 

 

Marshawn Lynch - Pyro Character

7.       Marshawn Lynch (at StL - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #22 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

After rushing for 110 yards in the Week 1, Marshawn has a high yardage game of 88 yards. The saving grace for Lynch is that he has produced six touchdowns, although last week he was held out of the endzone for the first time this season. Marshawn has been a workhorse back over the past three seasons, but he only has more than 20 carries in a game twice this year. In the three other games, Lynch has 33 carries for 169 yards. This week he will face a Rams defense that has looked stout against the run, holding running backs to 13.2 fantasy points per week. Lynch should be able to get back into the endzone this week, which makes him a good start.


Giovani Bernard - Pyro Character

8.       Giovani Bernard (at Ind - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-11 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Giovani had his first 100-yard rushing game of the season last week, and finished with 21.7 fantasy points. With his 89-yard touchdown run, Bernard now has a touchdown in three of his last four games, and four touchdowns over that span. Gio took a major hit from Luke Kuechly, which kept him out for close to a quarter, but he came back to the game will be a full go this week. This week he will travel to Indy to face a Colts defense that has been very stingy on the season, but have been susceptible to running backs. In six games this year the Colts have only allowed one 100-yard rusher, but they have given up seven rushing touchdowns. Bernard does not usually do most of his damage on the ground, so he should once again be able to reach 100 total yards for the fourth time this season.


Andre Ellington - Pyro Character

9.       Andre Ellington (at Oak - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #2 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The DUKE has put up consistent rushing and receiving numbers, but he has only popped once this season. Ellington has 61.3 fantasy points on the season, but scored 26.4 of those points in Week 5 against the Broncos, which is the only game that he has scored a touchdown in this season. Otherwise his high game on the season has gone for 10.1 fantasy points. Ellington is seeing at 20 touches per week, so he is still getting his chances. The return of Carson Palmer will help to solidify the offense, and prevent defense from focusing on shutting Andre down. This week he should be able to find the endzone against a Raiders defense that is allowing running backs to score 22.8 fantasy points per week.


Baltimore Ravens RB - Pyro Character

10.     Justin Forsett (vs. Atl - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #1 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Ravens are at home to the Falcons. The Ravens have been employing a running back by community approach this year. It is a three headed monster. Guessing the hot hand before hand is difficult, but Forsett is your best bet. Last week, he split carries with Pierce, Forsett toted the rock 14 times to Pierce’s 15. The big difference is what they did once the ball was in their hands. Forsett rumbled for 111 yards to Pierce’s 32. We are talking 7.9 per carry for Forsett and just 2.1 for Pierce. I still like Taliaferro more than Pierce in the long run. For now, Forsett is undoubtedly the guy. Atlanta has been consistently bad against RBs all season. In the last three weeks, no one is allowing more fantasy points to opposing RBs (31.7).


Alfred Morris - Pyro Character

11.     Alfred Morris (vs. Ten - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #9 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Washington is home to Tennessee in Week 7. Alfred’s performance has been trending down all year. He has gone from 91 yards in Week 1; to 85; to 77; to 63; to 29; to 41. He has 3 touchdowns on the year. As an owner myself, I have witnessed some vultering as well. Besides Weeks 2 and 3, he has only been given one red zone attempt in every other game. Jay Gruden has definitely put his mark on this team. In 2014, they are rushing the ball just over 38% whereas over 61% of their plays are passing.  In the last 3 weeks, only 10 teams are giving up more fantasy points to opposing RBs. Morris has a chance to turn it around, but I am not crazy about him. I should say, I am not thrilled with how he is being used. He is not a breakaway guy; he needs touches to get it going. He is a consistent back who can chew up the field, but he needs the opportunity to do it. Gruden’s offense has not afforded him that in 2014.


Reggie Bush - Pyro Character

12.     Reggie Bush (vs. NO - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)


Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-11 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Joe Lombardi and Reggie Bush will square off against their old team as the Saints come to town in week #7. After sitting out the game last week, Bush is saying he feels 100%. Most of the Detroit beat writers are expecting him to be a go in week #7.  He is a true homer, all but one of his Detroit TDs have come at home, which is exactly where the Saints are facing them. The Saints are allowing 8 passing attempts per game to RBs, only 2 other teams allow more to the position. In their last two games, they are allowing an average of 25.5 fantasy points to opposing RBs. Bush only has 1 TD on the year so far, but I bet Lombardi gets him in the game plan so that he gets to 2 in this revenge game.


San Diego Chargers Rookie - Pyro Character

13.     Branden Oliver (vs. KC - Sunday, 4:05pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #23 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Chargers are home to the Chiefs in one of the three late Sunday afternoon games.  In the last two weeks, the Branden Oliver machine has rolled on. In that time, he has 3 total TDs, and has gone for over 100 rushing yards in both games. If you were able to grab him off waivers, it is paying off in spades. For those that held out hope that Matthews would return quickly, the guy has not even resumed running in practice yet. Oliver appears to have a clear hold on the #1 spot, as the Bolts were forced to pick up Ronnie Brown, who is acting as the #2. Donald Brown is still working his way through the concussion protocol. Donald Brown was watching practice on Wednesday. That is not to say he won’t progress quickly the rest of this week, but even if he is back, Oliver has passed the eye test with flying colors. Now, what happens when Matthews is ready to return is a different story, but so far, that does not appear like it will be a problem for the foreseeable future. That said, the Chiefs are down right rough. They are one of only two teams that have not allowed a running back to score on them all season. Oliver will have his hands full come Sunday.


Eddie Lacy - Pyro Character

14.     Eddie Lacy (vs. Car - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #3 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Packers are home to face the Panthers. After turning out his first 100 yard rushing game in week #5, many owners took it as a sign of things to come. Unfortunately, it was a return to his woeful ways in week #6. Lacy had 14 attempts for 40 yards and did not cross the end zone. So far this year, he is averaging just 3.8 yards per carry. As Lacy continues to struggle, the coaching staff has been using backup, James Starks, a bit more. In the last two weeks, Starks has totaled 20 attempts, just 7 less than Lacy during that same stretch.  The Panthers are allowing 25 fantasy points to go to opposing RBs each week, only Atlanta is allowing more. You are still holding out hope for Lacy. But you might see some of that 25 fantasy points go to Starks this weeks. That could be a trend until Lacy can turn this ship around. Carolina will give him a good chance to do that. Last week, the Panthers gave Giovani Bernard his first 100 yard rushing game of the season.


Fred Jackson - Pyro Character

15.     Fred Jackson (vs. Min - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #5 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Fred Jackson has emerged as the top option in the Bills backfield yet again, much to the chagrin of C.J. Spiller owners. Fred Jackson is dominating in running back snaps and proving yet again to be a value relative to where you drafted him. Jackson is getting more targets and redzone carries and his value is just higher than his teammate. Last week Jackson scored his first touchdown of the season and will look to continue putting up nice numbers for his owners with a matchup against the Vikings on the docket. The Vikings are allowing 24 points a game to opposing runners and Fred should be able to have one of his better games of the season against this challenged defense.


Lamar Miller - Pyro Character

16.     Lamar Miller (at Chi - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #21 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Dolphins visit Chicago in Week 7. Miller is the man in Miami, with Damien Williams listed as his official backup. In the last two games, Miller has totaled 3 rushing TDs. Keep an eye on the injury report this week. He was limited in practice on Wednesday (knee). As of Thursday, he has a questionable rating. Chances are he is a go, but just be aware of the situation. Chicago is a tough matchup, they have only allowed 3 rushing TDs to opposing running backs so far this year. As of Thursday morning, the Bears had 2 players listed as questionable at both the safety and linebacker positions. Even still, this is a tougher matchup for Miller.


New York Giants Rookie - Pyro Character

17.     Andre Williams (at Dal - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #20 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Williams is a hard-nosed runner, and showed that early in last week’s game when he steam-rolled Malcom Jenkins. Andre is not a flashy runner, he a straight-ahead bruiser who lacks top end speed. Williams is a running back that looks for contact, which prevents him from breaking long runs. Currently the rookie is only averaging 3.3 YPC, and has a long run of 23 yards. The benefit for Williams is that he is the goal line back for the Giants. Prior to the Giants being shut out last week, Andre had a touchdown in each of the two previous games. This week he faces a Dallas defense that is riding high after defeating the Seahawks in Seattle last week. The Cowboys are holding down quarterbacks and receivers, in which they are top four in each category, but running backs and tight ends have found success. Williams is not going to blow up for 100 yards in this game, but he is a good candidate to score a touchdown.

 

 

Ahmad Bradshaw Pyro Character

18.     Ahmad Bradshaw (vs. Cin - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #13 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Colts are home to the Bengals this week. Bradshaw got another receiving TD last week, bringing his total to 5 receiving TDs in six games this year. Bradshaw is clearly the most talented back in Indy. However, his injury history is wisely limiting his touches. Richardson has 87 attempts on the year to Bradshaw’s 60. So far, Steven Ridley has been the only back who has put up over 100 yards against the Bengals. So, I do not think Bradshaw will get a rushing TD, but catching one is a definite possibility. Bradshaw has 10 red zone targets this year, leading all running backs.


Ronnie Hillman - Pyro Character

19.     Ronnie Hillman (vs. SF - Sunday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: NBC)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #31 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Hillman got the role as the lead man last week, and ran for 100 yards on 24 attempts. What made that performance even more impressive was that it came against a very stout Jets defense. Ronnie was held out of the endzone, but did add another 16 yards on three receptions. This week he will face yet another tough run defense. The 49ers are holding running backs to 11.6 fantasy points per week, which is second best in the league. This matchup looks tough on paper, but the Broncos are 17-2 at home since Peyton Manning has arrived in Denver. Manning is able to exploit defenses in the mile-high air, and force them to play catch up. The Broncos will still feature a balanced attack, and Hillman is going to get his carries, as well as opportunities in the passing game. So while it is still a difficult matchup, Ronnie should be able to find some success this week.


Chris Ivory - Pyro Character

20.     Chris Ivory (at NE - Thursday Night, 8:25pm ET - TV: CBS/NFL Network)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #16 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)


Joique Bell - Pyro Character

21.     Joique Bell (vs. NO - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-11 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Joique Bell has seen his efficiency drop so far this season but is still getting a nice volume to warrant being in your lineup on a weekly basis. Last week against Minnesota Bell had his best game of the season, rushing 18 times for 74 yards and a touchdown. He also added 2 catches for 23 yards. With Reggie Bush returning this week and going against the team that drafted him, he should be out for some revenge which means Bell probably won’t see the same workload he normally would. The Saints are giving up nearly 22 points a game to opposing runners so Bell should be  a decent play as the Lions look to be without Calvin Johnson again and trying to keep Drew Brees off the field.

 

 

Cincinnati Bengals Rookie - Pyro Character

22.     Jeremy Hill (at Ind - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-11 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Bengals travel to face the Colts this Sunday. In the last three weeks, only 9 teams are allowing more fantasy points to opposing RBs (20.5 per week). Last week, Gio had his first 100 yard rushing day against the Panthers. In the last two weeks, Gio has 31 rushing attempts to Hill’s 10. Hill was able to score last week and even had another that was called back. Hill caught 4 passes for 13 yards. But, he was running up right and did not look quick. He ended the day with 2.8 yard average.  On the year, Hill has 36 attempts to Gio’s 86. Hill has 3 TDs, to Gios 4 (all 7 on the ground).  In the pass game, Hill has 9 receptions from 10 targets. Gio has 18 receptions from 27 targets. I think we can safely say the 180 touches he was hyped to be getting was preseason coaching hype. Hill, who was supposed to be the goal line back, has just 6 red zone rushes or just 24%. Gio on the other hand, has 15 red zone rushes, accounting for 60% of the team’s ground attack inside the 20. If you are starting Hill, you are counting on a TD for any kind of relevance, and to be honest, they are leaning more on Bernard when they get in close. I own Hill in two leagues and he is on my bench, frankly it was not even a tough call.


Shane Vereen - Pyro Character

23.     Shane Vereen (vs. NYJ - Thursday Night, 8:25pm ET - TV: CBS/NFL Network)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #28 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Shane Vereen’s value just got a huge bump with the season ending injury to Stevan Ridley. Vereen is now the unquestioned top back,  on the team but with Belicheck at the helm that still doesn’t mean much for a bump in value, but should see an increase when the game is still on the line. Vereen will have a tough task ahead when he is asked to run on Thursday night with the powerful Jets front line dominant against the run, allowing just 13.5 fantasy points a game to opposing runners so far this season. Vereen should get a ton of snaps though this week as the Jets are susceptible against the pass game, so Vereen should get to work in his comfort zone for a majority of the game.


Trent Richardson - Pyro Character

24.     Trent Richardson (vs. Cin - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)


Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #13 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Colts see the Bengals come to town this Sunday. In three games against the Bengals, Trent has 2 TDs (one rushing and one through the air). In those games, he is averaging  4.26 yards per carry. Out of the six teams he has played at least three times, he enjoys his best yards per carry average against the Bengals. Trent is a flex play who has a good shot at turning out a decent game this week. He is a durable guy, and as explosive as his counterpart, Bradshaw, has been, that is a guy that is known to be injury prone. The Colts are mindful of this. Richardson has 87 attempts on the year to Bradshaw’s 60. So far, Steven Ridley has been the only back who has put up over 100 yards against the Bengals. I do not expect Richardson to make it two, but he could be serviceable at the flex spot.


Minnesota Vikings Rookie - Pyro Character

25.     Jerick McKinnon (at Buf - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)


Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #32 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

McKinnon was the lead back for the Vikings last week with 17 total touches. He had been splitting time with Matt Asiata, but Asiata only had three touches for 13 yards in the game. The Vikings realize that McKinnon gives them the best game breaker at the running back position, but he is still not going to get the goal line carries, which will be Asiata’s domain. This week it is not going to get any easier for Jerick, as he faces the Bills and their number one defense against running backs, holding them a scant 10.5 fantasy points per game. McKinnon should once again get the majority of touches, but he is going to have a hard time finding a lot of space against the Bills this week.


C.J. Spiller - Pyro Character

26.     C.J. Spiller (vs. Min - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #5 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Bills are home to the Vikings in week #7. In the last 3 weeks, only the Falcons are allowing more fantasy points to opposing RBs. So, it should be in the cards for Buffalo RBs. But if you ask me, Jackson will be the one to benefit. If you add up Spiller’s last sixteen games, a full season, he only has 1 rushing TD, 1 passing TD, and a total of 4 games where he rushed for over 70 yards. In the last 3 games, Spiller’s attempts have dwindled from 15, to 10, and then last week, he received a total of 6… touches. Fred Jackson, on the other hand, has a total of 42 touches in that same time. Anthony freakin’ Dixon got more rushing attempts in week #6 than Spiller did.  The writing is on the wall. If you can package Spiller in a trade, go for it. But at this point you may be stuck.


Pierre Thomas - Pyro Character

27.     Pierre Thomas (at Det - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-26 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Pierre Thomas’ value takes a bit of a hit this week as Mark Ingram returns from his wrist injury and works himself back into the rotation. In the two games with Ingram on the field Thomas scored 8.9 and 3.2 fantasy points, but without him Thomas was able to have his best game of the season, putting up 23.2 the last time the Saints played against Tampa Bay. Thomas could see an uptick in production this week though without Superstar Jimmy Graham on the field. Against a stiff rush defense in Detroit the only way it looks the Saints will be able to move the ball is through the air, so Thomas should get a lot of the snaps this week. Look for Thomas to have the best day of any Saint runner this week.

 

 

Jonathan Stewart - Pyro Character

28.     Jonathan Stewart (at GB - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #6 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

 

Jacksonville Jaguars Rookie - Pyro Character

29.     Storm Johnson (vs. Cle - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #7 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Johnson was on a strict 10-carry limit last week, and unfortunately he was not able to do much with those, rushing for only 21 yards. This week he should be allowed to handle a larger workload, and could have some success against the Browns, who are allowing 22 fantasy points per game to running backs. The Jaguars welcomed back Cecil Shorts and Marquise Lee last week, and that should help to take some pressure off the running game. In their two road games this season, the Browns have allowed 367 rushing yards against.

 

 

James Starks - Pyro Character

Darren McFadden - Pyro Character

31.     Darren McFadden (vs. Ari - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-26 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Darren McFadden looks to have pulled ahead in the race of veteran backs to impede the play of the young Latavious Murray. McFadden had one of his best games in recent memory last week against the Chargers. DMC looked spry in rushing 14 times for 80 yards and was able to weave his way to some nice games. This week it is doubtful he looks as spry, going up against a Cardinal run defense that is allowing just 11.9 fantasy points a game to opposing runners.


Frank Gore - Pyro Character

32.     Frank Gore (at Den - Sunday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: NBC)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #19 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Frank Gore has been a middle of the road RB2 all season long, and coming off two 100 yard games in a row and having a nice matchup with the Rams on the schedule he did exactly what you would expect, or not!! He rushed 16 times for 38 yards and was held out of the endzone and without catch on his 1 target. Gore is a bit hit or miss so far this season and has been replaced near the endzone then a back with no pass catching skills would like.

 

 

 

Bishop Sankey Pyro Character

33.     Bishop Sankey (at Was - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-29 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Bishop finally got his chance last week against the Jaguars to show what he could do as a lead back, and the results were not what his owners were hoping for. Sankey finally got a decent workload, with 19 total touches, but he only amassed 68 total yards, and was held out of the endzone. The most frustrating moment of the game happened when the Titans got down to the 1-yard line, and they went with Jackie Battle over Sankey for the touchdown. Bishop’s value takes a major hit if they don’t trust him around the goal line. This week he heads to Washington, and will face a tough run defense. Washington is allowing quarterbacks to tear them apart, but they are holding opposing running backs to 11.7 fantasy points per game, which is third best in the league. While Bishop is getting the chances, he has still not shown enough in games to trust this week in fantasy.

Jets RB - Pyro Character

36.     Chris Johnson (at NE - Thursday Night, 8:25pm ET - TV: CBS/NFL Network)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #16 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Johnson has become an afterthought in fantasy football this year, and has been dropped in 29% of CBS fantasy leagues. It’s hard to blame them, since Week 1 when he rushed for 68 yards, Johnson has not run for more than 50 yards in any game. In fact, in his last five games CJ only has 132 yards on 38 carries, with one touchdown. Over the past two weeks he only has 33 yards on 10 carries. His use in the offense continues to diminish and he can’t be recommended this week.


Baltimore Ravens Rookie - Pyro Character

41.     Steven Jackson (at Bal - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-29 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Steven Jackson has settled in as a weekly flex option for fantasy owners. Those who expected more need to temper their expectations and realize that he is part of one of the leagues largest committees, with 4 players who all see snaps. Jackson is a guy who could have 10+ touches each week but you are really counting on him to score in order to have a big day. This week against the Baltimore Ravens I would look elsewhere as they have allowed just 11.9 fantasy points a game to opposing runners, and on the road they are more likely to put the game in Ryan’s hands to win.

 

 

Pittsburgh Steelers - Pyro Character

44.     Mark Ingram (at Det - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-26 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Mark Ingram is returning to health this week after missing the last month with a wrist injury. Unfortunately for him and his owners he is going up against a very stiff run defense in the form of the Detroit Lions. While Ingram was on a tear to start the season averaging 6 yards a carry and scoring three times in two games it is unfair to expect that production this week. Pretend like he is still out this week and go with another option.

Zac Stacy - Pyro Character

47.     Zac Stacy (vs. Sea - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #25 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Stacy was quite ineffective last week with only 17 yards on eight carries, with 17 more yards on two receptions. The result of that performance was that Jeff Fisher has decided to go with a committee approach going forward. Zac only has 3.9 YPC average, and has not had any big plays this season, with his longest run going for 16 yards. Last week Benny Cunningham, Tre Mason and Tavon Austin all received rushing attempts. The Rams are looking for big plays, and Stacy is just not producing those. This week he will travel to Seattle, who is coming off an embarrassing loss at home to the Cowboys. This is not going to be a good week for Stacy, and his prospects look slim going forward.


Oakland Raiders - Pyro Character

48.     Maurice Jones-Drew (vs. Ari - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

49.     Bernard Pierce (vs. Atl - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #1 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Bernard Pierce has been entrenched in a committee in the Ravens backfield as of late, and as a group the unit is putting up a very respectable 23.5 fantasy points a game, so there is no reason to think that they will go away from this approach. Pierce did score his first touchdown of the season last week against the Bucs, but other than that he was his unproductive self this season, rushing 15 times for 32 yards. While the matchup is the best it could possibly be against an Atlanta rush defense that is allowing 29.1 fantasy points a game to opposing runners, Pierce is clearly third in the pecking order right now and should be avoided.

Wide Receivers                 (Updated:  Sunday, Oct. 19 - 11:37AM CT)

 

Jordy Nelson - Pyro Character

1.         Jordy Nelson (vs. Car - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #8 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Nelson continues to be one of the most dominating receivers in fantasy football. Over the past three weeks he has 20 receptions for 281 yards and four touchdowns. Touchdowns are hard to count on at the wide receiver position, but the chemistry that Nelson has with Aaron Rodgers makes him a higher likelihood to score a touchdown each week. This week he will matchup against the Panthers who have allowed 12 passing touchdowns against them this season, which is tied with Jacksonville…that says it all. Nelson should have a field day against this defense.


Demaryius Thomas - Pyro Character

2.         Demaryius Thomas (vs. SF - Sunday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: NBC)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #19 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

How good has Demaryius been over the past two weeks? How does 18 receptions for 350 yards, with three touchdowns and 53 fantasy points sound? Pretty, pretty, pretty good. This week he welcomes the 49ers to Mile-High on Sunday Night, and he and Peyton Manning will look to buck the recent trend for the 49ers defense, which is holding down opposing quarterbacks to 13.1 fantasy points. The good news is that the 49ers have not faced a legitimate quarterback since Jay Cutler in Week 2, and he threw four touchdowns against them. Peyton targeted Demaryius 28 times over the past two weeks, and he should once again see double-digit targets. Thomas is back on top of his game, and a must-start.

 

 

Antonio Brown - Pyro Character

3.         Antonio Brown (vs. Hou - Monday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: ESPN)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #7 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Brown had his third 100-yard game of the season last week, but he was held out of the endzone for the second week in a row. Antonio continues to be heavily targeted by Big Ben, with double-digit targets in each of his last five games. The Texans have been a decent defense this season, but their weak spot is their defense of receivers, who are scoring 25.1 fantasy points per game. The Texans have allowed 10 passing touchdowns against them this season, so there is a good chance that Brown ends his touchdown drought.


Brandon Marshall - Pyro Character

4.         Brandon Marshall (vs. Mia - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

Julio Jones Pyro Character

6.         Julio Jones (at Bal - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #9 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Jones has been held out of the endzone the past three weeks, and in that time has only one 100-yard receiving game. Last week was his worst performance of the season, with only four receptions for 68 yards, even though he was targeted 12 times in the game. This week he will look to get back on track as he travels to Baltimore. The Ravens have been a stout defense, ranking fourth overall in fantasy points allowed, but they are allowing receivers to score 25.4 fantasy points, which ranks them twenty-fifth in the league. Julio has always been a better player on the road, with 15 touchdowns compared to eight scored at home. Jones also averages 98 receiving yards per game on the road. He should be able to get back on track this week.

T.Y. Hilton - Pyro Character

10.       T.Y. Hilton (vs. Cin - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #28 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

T.Y. is coming off a career game with 223 yards on nine receptions, including a 33-yard touchdown. Hilton continues to be Andrew Luck’s favorite receiver, and it was only a matter of time before he blew up with the amount of targets he has seen. This week he will face a Bengals defense that has struggled over the past two weeks, allowing four passing touchdowns over the past two weeks. Luck has been on fire this season, throwing for over 370 yards four times this season, and he will look to pressure the Bengals defense through the air with Hilton in this one. T.Y. has been strong over the last three weeks, but found the endzone for the first time on the season last week. He will look to keep his hot streak going this week, and like in roulette, you have let the winning bet ride, so start him this week.


Michael Floyd - Pyro Character

11.       Michael Floyd (at Oak - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #23 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Floyd was happy to see Carson Palmer back under center last week, which led to him scoring his first touchdown on the season. He only had 47 yards on four receptions, but it is clear that he is a bigger part of the offense when Palmer is under center. This week Floyd travels to Oakland, and will look to continue his touchdown streak. The Raiders have been good at defending receivers, only allowing 19.8 fantasy points game, good for ninth in the league. The reason they have had success against receivers, is because they can’t stop the run. Bruce Arians likes to shots downfield, and now that Palmer has a game under his belt, look for him to open up the offense this week, which is good news for Floyd.


Alshon Jeffery - Pyro Character

12.       Alshon Jeffery (vs. Mia - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #20 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Bears are home to the Dolphins in week #7. Miami’s D is tough against the run. Only 7 teams have given up less rushing yards on the year. That smells like a big day for Bear receivers. In the last 3 weeks, only 6 teams are giving up more fantasy points to opposing WRs. So far this year, Edelman had  95 yards against the Bears. Sammy Watkins scored a TD and had his only 100 yard receiving day. Jordy Nelson went for 107 and 1 TD. In his last 2 games, Alshon scored 1 TD and has gone for 97 yards and 136 last week. He should continue to roll as Cutler will find success in the passing game against Miami.


Golden Tate - Pyro Character

13.       Golden Tate (vs. NO - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #3 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Tate is going to be the main man again this week, while Calvin Johnson sits this one out. Golden has been targeted 31 times over the last three weeks, with 22 receptions for 294 yards and a touchdown. This week the Lions welcome the Saints to town, and when the Saints come marching in, receivers score a lot of points. The Saints are allowing 27.1 fantasy points per game to receivers, which is fourth worst in the league. Stafford is going to target Tate early and often, and he should be able to have a nice game on Sunday against the Saints.


Baltimore Ravens WR - Pyro Character

DeSean Jackson Pyro Character

15.       DeSean Jackson (vs. Ten - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #17 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Jackson has been torching defenses the last two weeks with eight receptions for 272 yards and two touchdowns. DeSean has three 100-yard games in his last four, and has become the best weapon that Kirk Cousins has at his disposal. So far this season Jackson has a 20.8 YPR average, which is the second highest mark in his career. This week he will face a Titans defense that has struggled as of late. The Titans held their first three opponents to under 200 passing yards, but over the past three weeks have allowed 974 passing yards against. DeSean should give the Tennessee defense fits, and is a good bet to connect on a long pass this week.


Rueben Randle - Pyro Character

Julian Edelman - Pyro Character

17.       Julian Edelman (vs. NYJ - Thursday Night, 8:25pm ET - TV: CBS/NFL Network)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #11 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)


After two subpar weeks Edelman got back on track last week. He finished the game with nine receptions for 91 yards, and added another 10 rushing to get over 100 total yards and hit bonuses for owners last week. The bad news is that Julian was held out of the endzone for the fourth straight week. Last year when the Jets came to Foxborough Edelman had 13 receptions for 78 yards on 18 targets. With Tom Brady and the passing game getting going over the last two weeks, should allow for Edleman to find more open space against the Jets. It also doesn’t hurt that the Jets defense is allowing 24.7 fantasy points per week to opposing receivers.

 

 

Pierre Garcon - Pyro Character

18.       Pierre Garcon (vs. Ten - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #17 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Washington is home to the Titans in week #7. In the last 3 weeks, only 8 teams are giving up more fantasy points to opposing WRs. Chances are, however, that is only good news to one Washington receiver. (Insert picture of Garcon cursing here). But, since Cousins checked in during week #2, he has clicked with DeSean Jackson, not Garcon. There was a brief glimmer of hope for Garcon owners in week #3, but since then, he has only caught 8 passes. So in the last three games, that is 8 passes from 15 targets and not even 100 receiving yards to show. In those three games, he doesn’t even have one pass that has gone for 20 yards. Now, the Titans allowed Reggie Wayne his only 100 yard game and only score of the season. Still, Garcon is a WR#2 at best, and even then it may depend on your roster.

 

 

Sammy Watkins Pyro Character

19.       Sammy Watkins (vs. Min - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #18 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Bills are home to the Vikings in week #7. As far as fantasy points allowed, during the last 3 weeks, the Vikings are just about smack in the middle of the pack. But, they have given up 5 TDs in that time. Only 3 teams have allowed more receiving TDs. In his two games as a starter, Orton has at least 299 yards, connected on at least 63% of his passes and has a total of 3 TDs. He is spreading it around and the entire team is benefiting. Last week, Watkins was stuck on Reevis island, but against Detroit, who is one of the toughest defenses out there, he managed 7 receptions for 87 yards. This will be his best matchup to date with Orton as his QB. I am starting him in my dynasty league over Reggie Wayne. In the last 2 weeks, Sammy has 3 plays of at least 20 yards.

 

Mohamed Sanu - Pyro Character

20.       Mohamed Sanu (at Ind - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-29 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

A.J. Green is questionable for this week, and Marvin Jones is out for the season, which means Sanu is locked in as the #2 the rest of the way and could be working as the #1 this week. Sanu showed last week that he could handle being the lead dog with 10 receptions for 120 yards, with a touchdown on 14 targets. The Bengals are going to have to put up points in order to keep up with the Colts. So even while Indianapolis is only allowing receivers 15.4 fantasy points, second best in the league, Sanu should see enough targets to make up for it. The other benefit is that Mohammad is a versatile player who is used in many different ways by Cincinnati.

22.       Brandin Cooks (at Det - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #32 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Cooks and the Saints are coming off the bye week, but they have a very tough defense waiting for them in Detroit. The Lions are holding receivers to a league low 14.4 fantasy points per game, which is fantastic, but the Packers are the only real good offensive team they have faced this season. Cooks is also going see a lot more targets in this game, as Jimmy Graham will sit this one out. Sean Payton should try to get the ball into the rookies hands in a multitude of ways, and I would not be surprised if he gets a couple rushing attempts. Brandin has disappointed to this point, but the bye week, and the extra targets should help he get back on the right track.

 

 

Andre Johnson - Pyro Character

23.       Andre Johnson (at Pit - Monday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: ESPN)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #26 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Johnson finally scored his first touchdown of the season last week, and it came during his best performance of the year. Andre had seven receptions for 99 yards on 12 targets, to go along with the score. This was the third week in a row that Johnson’s targets have increased. The Texans still do not the throw the ball enough, and will most likely rely heavily on Foster and the running game in this one. The Steelers are also a top ten defense at defending receivers, which limits Andre’s big game potential. There is still life left in Johnson’s game, and he is finally seeing more targets, but he is not a strong contender to score a touchdown.


Marques Colston - Pyro Character

24.       Marques Colston (at Det - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #32 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Colston is in the same situation as Cooks, in that he is going to see a lot more targets this week with Jimmy Graham out of this game. The Lions defense should be able to shut down the Saints running game, and force them to pass, which helps Colston’s fantasy outlook. Marques is also the most trusted target for Drew Brees when they are in the redzone.


Cecil Shorts - Pyro Character

Mike Wallace - Pyro Character

26.       Mike Wallace (at Chi - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #16 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The big game has eluded Wallace this season. The highest yardage total he has on the season is only 81 yards, but he has still been a very effective fantasy receiver. Wallace has four touchdowns in five games this year, which has helped to rank him tenth overall amongst receivers in fantasy points per game. This week he travels to Solider Field to face the Bears, whose defense has been much improved over the past three weeks. In that span Chicago has not allowed 100 yards rushing in any game, and have held them under 60 yards rushing twice. The Dolphins will most likely be forced to go to the air, in order to keep up with the Bears offense. Wallace should be matched up against rookie standout Kyle Fuller, who has done a great job on top receivers this season, and helped hold Julio Jones and Roddy White in check last week. That hurts Wallace’s ceiling in this game.


Cordarrelle Patterson - Pyro Character

27.       Cordarrelle Patterson (at Buf - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #5 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Patterson has yet to make the splash that his talent says he should. Cordarrelle has only two receptions in each of his last three games, and has been held to 61 receiving yards in that span. When head coach Mike Zimmer was asked why Patterson has not been getting more targets, his answer was “He needs to get open”. This may be just the kick in the ass the Cordarrelle needs to take his game to the next level. He will have a good chance to get back on track against the Bills. Buffalo is best in the league at stopping running backs, but are allowing 25.7 fantasy points to receivers.

 

Keenan Allen - Pyro Character

28.       Keenan Allen (vs. KC - Sunday, 4:05pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #15 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

It has been a very disappointing start to the season for Keenan Allen. He has yet to record a touchdown, and only has one 100-yard receiving game. In Allen’s five other games he only has 161 yards on 18 receptions. Philip Rivers is having a fantastic season, but Keenan has not gotten in on the action. This week he will face division rival Kansas City, and last season he had 14 receptions for 213 yards, but no touchdowns in two games. Defenses are keying on Allen, which has forced Rivers to look elsewhere. A familiar foe may be just the thing Keenan needs to get back on track.

31.       Reggie Wayne (vs. Cin - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #28 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Colts are home to the Bengals in week #7. In 5 games against the Bengals, Wayne is averaging 5 receptions a game for 68.2 yards per game and a total of 2 touchdowns. Luck has been on a mission this year. Wayne has been a big part of it. While Hilton is the big play guy, Wayne is your consistent play. In the last 3 weeks, Wayne has been given 29 targets. The Bengals are a tough D. In the last 3 weeks, only 5 teams are allowing fewer points to opposing WRs. They are allowing the most attempts to #2 receivers, 8.9 per game. As usual, I like Wayne fare more in a PPR format.

36.       Torrey Smith (vs. Atl - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)


Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #13 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Torrey had his best game of the year last week, as did Joe Flacco, with four receptions for 51 yards and two touchdowns. Both of those touchdowns came in the first quarter, but he was not able to garner a lot of yards in this game. That has been the story all season long for Smith, who has been held to 53 yards or less and four or less catches in every game this season. Joe Flacco seems more comfortable throwing the ball to Steve Smith, and it is hard to blame him with the success they have had. Torrey drops too many passes, and does not see enough targets to be a great start, but if you are in a pinch he could make one of those receptions count this week. The Falcons have a horrible defense, and are allowing opposing receivers 23.8 fantasy points per week.

42.       Kendall Wright (at Was - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #12 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Wright was coming off his best game of the year heading into last week, and was looking to carry that momentum from his two-touchdown game, but he fell flat last week. Wright only had one reception for six yards, on six targets. Kendall has not been good this season, and has been held under 50 yards in all but one game this season, and in that one he only mustered 55 yards. There has not been any consistency in the Titans offense, so even while they are facing a Washington defense that is susceptible to receivers, it is hard to recommend Wright right now.

43.       Wes Welker (vs. SF - Sunday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: NBC)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #19 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Oh Wes, where has your once dominant game gone? Last week Welker was ignored in the offense, with only one reception for eight yards on one target. Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Julius Thomas are the top three options in the Denver passing attack, which leaves Welker hanging around looking for table scraps. Wes also has the concussion history, and Peyton is most likely going to look elsewhere instead of threading the needle to Welker in heavy traffic. The 49ers are a hard-hitting defense, so don’t expect Wes to be targeted a lot in this game. Even when he does make receptions, they are not going very far, averaging 9 YPR, and Welker has no touchdowns in three games.

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-29 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Giants head to Dallas in this classic division rivalry game. In his two games this year, Beckham has a total of 9 targets and 6 receptions. He has a total of 72 yards and one TD. Everyone became very excited when he scored in his first game, and the Cruz injury just swelled the Beckham enthusiasm. Well, tap the breaks a bit. Although Eli is maddening to figure out, I expect Randle and Donnell to be the benefactors of Victor’s absence. Hell, Preston Parker has more yards in the last two games. Dallas is riding a high after beating Seattle on their home turf. Dallas returns to Texas with some swagger. In the last 3 weeks, only two teams are allowing fewer fantasy points to opposing WRs. Depending on your roster, I would most likely keep Beckham on my bench this week. I might even float some trade offers out there, see what you can get for him.

49.       Doug Baldwin (at StL - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #6 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Seahawks head to St. Louis this Sunday. While I was one of those guys who loved Baldwin coming into the season, it just has not panned out. Statistically, he is still one of the best long ball catchers in the league. But, they are just not a passing team, nor are they using him correctly. Can I get an amen Percy Harvin? While the Silver Fox (Pete Carroll) knows defense and the ground game, he appears clueless as seeing his talent and using it correctly when it comes to the receivers. The Rams are just giving up 155 receiving yards per game. Baldwin only has 3 targets in the red zone this year. Percentage wise, only 4 teams are passing the ball less than Seattle. While I think (and pray) they get this thing figured out for Harvin, an increase for Baldwin is just not in the cards.

50.       Michael Crabtree (at Den - Sunday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: NBC)


Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #31 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Crabtree was able to catch a touchdown pass last week, which prevented him from having his third horrible fantasy-scoring week in a row. Over the past three weeks, other than his touchdown catch, Crabtree has nine receptions for 108 yards. Those are not numbers befitting a supposed #1 receiver. It is not going to get easier this week, as he travels to Denver, where he will likely spend his Sunday being shadowed by Aqib Talib. That is bad news for Crabby, and a reason to bury him in the sand this week.

Quick was shut down by the 49ers last week, with only one reception for 10 yards on four targets. In the two weeks prior, Quick had seven receptions for 149 yards and three touchdowns. This week he faces off against the Seahawks, who are going to be angry coming off a home loss to the Cowboys. The 49ers exposed a weakness in Austin Davis, by putting him under constant pressure, which the Seahawks should be able to duplicate this week. The return of Tavon Austin also complicated matters for Quick. This is a situation to be avoided this week.

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #27 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Eric Decker has been hobbled for much of the season with a hamstring injury but is coming off of one of his better games as a Jet. Against his old team last week he was targeted 10 times and caught 6 passes for 54 yards and a score. However this game doesn’t shape up nearly as nicely for Decker. In three games against the Patriots Decker has just 6 total catches for 48 yards and a score. On the short week with a quarterback prone to turn overs this game could get ugly fast. Decker might get some garbage time points this week but facing a set of New England croners that has Darrelle Revis against his old team and holding opposing wide receivers to just 16.5 fantasy points a game, I wouldn’t count on it.

The Bengals head to Indy in week #7. If you ask Nicks, he is the best player in the league. That is exactly the kind of receiver you want on your team. Accept, you don’t really want him specifically, not for fantasy anyway.  In the last 3 weeks, only 5 teams are allowing fewer points to opposing WRs. Only 9 teams are allowing fewer yards to opposing #3 receivers. In 2 of the last 3 weeks, Nicks failed to get 20 yards. His snap count has been in decline the last 3 games. I am only gambling on Nicks in the absolute deepest of leagues.

Stills is just not a big enough part of the Saints offense to be able to start with any confidence. Now Jimmy Graham is going to be out this week, which should mean more targets, but he will also be facing a tough as nails Lions defense that is holding receivers to a league low 14.4 fantasy points per game. Kenny is the third receiver behind Colston and Cooks, and in this game he is not going to see enough targets to be worth starting.

Tavon Austin - Pyro Character

78.       Tavon Austin (vs. Sea - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)


Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #22 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

In his second game back, the Rams looked to get Austin more involved in the offense. After only six targets in his first three games played, Tavon was targeted five times last week, finishing with four receptions for 35 yards. St. Louis also lined Austin up in the backfield as a running back, and he had 16 yards on three carries. This week he faces the Seahawks, and he is going to have a hard time finding a lot of space, and it would wise for the Rams not to expose him to the hits he took last week on the inside running plays. There is no consistency here, so don’t start Tavon.

Tight Ends                 (Updated:  Sunday, Oct. 19 - 11:51AM CT)

 

Rob Gronkowski - Pyro Character

1.      Rob Gronkowski (vs. NYJ - Thursday Night, 8:25pm ET - TV: CBS/NFL Network)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #8 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Rob Gronkowski is coming off a game in which he was targeted 9 times and caught 7 passes for 94 yards on the day. Taking on a Jets defense that is allowing nearly 12 points a game to opposing tight ends should be a cake walk for the tight end who looks better and better each week. Gronk has been a dominator on Thursday nights, and has in fact played just 1 Thursday night game catching 5 passes for 65 yards. Gronk has dominated the Jets though with nearly 5 catches for 60 yards and 4 touchdowns in six games against gang green. Gronk should have a nice day on Thursday night as the Patriots will have to attack the Jets through the air to secure a victory.


Julius Thomas - Pyro Character

2.      Julius Thomas (vs. SF - Sunday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: NBC)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #22 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)


Jordan Cameron - Pyro Character

3.      Jordan Cameron (at Jac - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #3 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Cameron had his first big game of the season last week, with 102 yards on three receptions, including a 51-yard touchdown catch. The interesting fact is that Cameron did not see a lot of targets in this game, with only five. In fact, Jordan is only averaging five targets per game on the season. This week he heads to Jacksonville to face the second worst defense in the league at defending tight ends. This is a great matchup for Cameron, and even if he does not see a lot of targets, he should be able to find a lot of space when he does. He is a big play waiting to happen in this game.


Jordan Reed - Pyro Character

4.      Jordan Reed (vs. Ten - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #6 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)


Delanie Walker - Pyro Character

5.      Delanie Walker (at Was - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-12 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)


Martellus Bennett - Pyro Character

6.      Martellus Bennett (vs. Mia - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-16 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)


Greg Olsen - Pyro Character

7.      Greg Olsen (at GB - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #29 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Olsen has been a very busy tight end over the last two weeks. Greg has been targeted 20 times, and has 12 receptions for 134 yards, with three touchdowns. Olsen is on pace to finish this season with 136 targets, which is nearly two more targets per game than he has had over the last two seasons. The chemistry that he and Newton have make him a must start every week, even when the matchup is tough like this week. The Packers are holding tight ends to only five fantasy points per game. Olsen will still see a lot of targets, which should allow him to find success, but he is not going to have a huge game against the Pack.


Dwayne Allen - Pyro Character

8.      Dwayne Allen (vs. Cin - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #2 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)


Vernon Davis - Pyro Character

9.      Vernon Davis (at Den - Sunday Night, 8:30pm ET - TV: NBC)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #T-12 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Since scoring two touchdowns in the season opener Davis has been shut down in fantasy. In the three games he has played since Week 1, Vernon has not had more than three catches or 40 yards in any of them, and has been held out of the endzone. This week the Davis will face the Broncos, and that should mean the 49ers should be passing the ball more in this game, trying to keep pace with Peyton Manning. Denver has only allowed two touchdowns to tight ends this season, but they have not faced tough tight ends, with Dwayne Allen being the best the have seen, which came in Week 1. Vernon did see six targets last week, and this may be a good chance for him to end his touchdown drought.


New York Giants TE - Pyro Character

10.    Larry Donnell (at Dal - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #1 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Donnell has done nothing over the past two weeks, with just one reception for six yards, on just three targets. The season ending injury to Victor Cruz should help to shift a lot more targets back in his direction. This week he faces the Cowboys, whose defense has been playing very well as of late. The area the Cowboys have been exposed is in the middle of the field by opposing tight ends, who are scoring 12.7 fantasy points against them, which is the third most in the league. Larry should be able to find open space in this game, and is a sneaky start, especially after his performance over the last two weeks.

 

 

Jimmy Graham - Pyro Character

11.    Jimmy Graham (at Det - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #15 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

 

Antonio Gates - Pyro Character

12.    Antonio Gates (vs. KC - Sunday, 4:05pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #18 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Gates has been Mr. Redzone with three touchdowns over the last two weeks. Philip Rivers is playing fantastic football, and Gates looks rejuvenated this season. Antonio loves playing against the Chiefs. In 18 career games against them, he is averaging five receptions for 61 yards, and has 14 touchdowns. Those 14 touchdowns are more than he has against any team, and that level of comfort should comfort his fantasy owners, as they must start him this week.

 

 

Travis Kelce - Pyro Character

13.    Travis Kelce (at SD - Sunday, 4:05pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #30 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

 

Coby Fleener - Pyro Character

14.    Coby Fleener (vs. Cin - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #2 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)


Jared Cook - Pyro Character

15.    Jared Cook (vs. Sea - Sunday, 1:00pm ET - TV: FOX)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #9 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

The Rams have the mighty Seahawks head to town this Sunday. Seattle is coming off a loss at home. They are going to be out for blood in week #7. However, if they are weak against one position, it is the tight end. Only two teams are allowing opposing TEs more fantasy points. Not only that, Seattle has let opposing tight ends score 7 touchdowns on the year. No other team has allowed more to the position. They have already had their bye, so that means they have given up those 7 TDs to tight ends in just 5 games. 3 of those TDs came in one away game against San Diego. Again, they are away this week.


Jacksonville Jaguars TE - Pyro Character

Mychal Rivera - Pyro Character

29.    Mychal Rivera (vs. Ari - Sunday, 4:25pm ET - TV: FOX)

Ladarius Green - Pyro Character

30.    Ladarius Green (vs. KC - Sunday, 4:05pm ET - TV: CBS)

 

Week 7 PYRO Strength of Schedule:  Rank #18 (Rank: 1=Easiest  32=Hardest)

 

Green was finally involved in the offense again last week, with four receptions for 60 yards. Antonio Gates is still the main threat at the tight end position for the Chargers, and until that changes the results from Green are going to continue to be as inconsistent and erratic as they have been to this point in the season. Don’t roll the dice on Green, it most likely will end up in a craps roll.


Garrett Graham - Pyro Character
