Fantasy Football Week 7 Quarterbacks – Rankings Analysis
There really aren’t that many great plays at the top this week, but headlining things is Mr. Matt Ryan. He’s under center for the best offense in the NFL thus far (33.2 PPG) and gets to play at home against a poor SD defense in a game that boasts the highest Vegas point total of the week at a whopping 53.5 points. That’s why Philip Rivers is #3 of course.
Outside of that I’ve got Andy Dalton a couple spots higher than the field, currently at #7 vs. their #10 consensus ranking. They’re facing Cleveland, who rank a “blah” 19th against the run per FootballOutsiders’ DVOA, but are an embarrassing 30th against the pass. With Jeremy Hill likely not at 100%, look for Dalton to whip it himself.
I’ve also swapped Alex Smith and Russell Wilson at #13 and #15, because Arizona is looking a bit revamped out there (though playing the Jets helps) and gets to play at home versus a version of Wilson that clearly isn’t full strength. Meanwhile Smith gets to take on the Saints at home, and while KC’s commitment to the conservative run game can be maddening, the opportunity is still ripe here for a guy who has performed better at home thus far. Aside from that SD-ATL game, this is the only other one with a point projection of over 50.
