Bouncing Back: Fantasy Football Week 7 Aww’s And Naw’s

Aww Quarterbacks

Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings (away vs. Detroit Lions) – Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers had 283 yards passing and two touchdowns with no good wide receivers against the Lions’ defense. Cousins should torch them with his stud wideouts.


Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills (home vs. Miami Dolphins) – The Dolphins’ defense has given up the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Allen should have a field day in this favorable matchup.


Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams (away vs. Atlanta Falcons) – It has been a tough few weeks for Goff but it will all change on the road against a bad Atlanta Falcons’ defense. It is time for Goff’s first three touchdown pass game this year.


Naw Quarterbacks

Phillip Rivers, Los Angeles Rams (away vs. Tennessee Titans) – The Titans’ defense has only allowed an average of 15 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks so far and Rivers has been struggling over the past two weeks.


Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions (home vs. Minnesota Vikings) – Here’s an interesting fact: in his past five meetings against Minnesota, Stafford is averaging 201 passing yards per game with three touchdowns, one interception and two fumbles. That’s not encouraging news to insert him in your starting lineup.


Aww Running Backs

Frank Gore, Buffalo Bills (home vs. Miami Dolphins) – Here is a revenge game for Gore, who should be the lead back against his former team even with rookie running back Devin Singletary coming back from a hamstring injury.


Tevin Coleman, San Francisco 49ers (away vs. Washington Redskins) – Since returning from injury, Coleman has averaged 17 carries in two games and a touchdown. He’s still splitting carries with Matt Brieda but don’t worry: Coleman is playing more snaps and getting the goal line carries.


Naw Running Backs

Adrian Peterson, Washington Redskins (home vs. San Francisco 49ers) – A hot waiver wire/flex play last week can now sit on your bench as the Niners’ defense has not allowed a touchdown to an opposing running back yet this season.

Melvin Gordon, Los Angeles Chargers (away vs. Tennessee Titans) – Ten carries for 22 yards is Gordon’s average in his last two games. This weekend does not get any easier against a stingy Titans’ defense.


Aww Wide Receivers

Allen Lazard, Green Bay Packers (home vs. Oakland Raiders) – Lazard has earned quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ trust, plus all the other Packers’ wide receivers are hurt. Someone must catch the ball.


Golden Tate, New York Giants (home vs. Arizona Cardinals) – With starting running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Evan Engram returning, Tate should get more open looks and be a favorite for rookie quarterback Daniel Jones in short yardage situations.


Calvin Ridley, Atlanta Falcons (home vs. Los Angeles Rams) – This game should be a fun-filled, all-offense type of game where Ridley will get tons of looks down the field against a weak Rams’ secondary.


Naw Wide Receivers

Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears (home vs. New Orleans Saints) – New Orleans Saints’ cornerback Marshon Lattimore has shut down wide receivers Amari Cooper, Mike Evans and D.J. Chark in successive weeks. It does not look good for Robinson this week.


Terry McLaurin, Washington Redskins (home vs. San Francisco 49ers) – McLaurin has been on fire this season. This matchup at home against the Niners is tough but there’s no way you are benching him.  The 49ers are tops in the league in pass defense.


Aww Tight Ends

Austin Hooper, Atlanta Falcons (home vs. Los Angeles Rams) – One of the hottest and consistent tight ends in the game, Hooper stays hot in a possible shootout matchup at home.


Hunter Henry, Los Angeles Chargers (away vs. Tennessee Titans) – Here’s an interesting fact: the Titans’ defense has allowed the third most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season. This could lead to strong fantasy numbers for Henry.


Naw Tight Ends

Jared Cook, New Orleans Saints (away vs. Chicago Bears) – Even though Cook has scored a touchdown in his past two games, the Bears’ defense has not allowed a tight end to score since week one.


Aww Team Defense

Buffalo Bills (home vs. Miami Dolphins) – You would want to start any defense against the Dolphins and the Bills’ defense is a good bet to cause multiple turnovers.


Naw Team Defense

Dallas Cowboys (home vs. Philadelphia Eagles) – They could not stop the low scoring New York Jets last week and now they face quarterback Carson Wentz and the high powered Eagles’ offense.
