Must Start Fantasy Players for Week 7
Fantasy quarterbacks to start week 7:
Matt Ryan - Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has been torching defenses since week 1 of the 2016 season. He is currently leading all quarterbacks in passing yards through week 6. Ryan has a history of dropping down the ranks late in the season, but as long has he is healthy, protected, and has Julio Jones open to through to he will have a day. He does have two top-seven finishes over the last four seasons. Ryan is averaging 30 points at home this season.
Andy Dalton - Dalton turned out to be a great fantasy option last week showing that he can step up when needed. He will be facing off against a week cleveland defense that has allowed three touchdown passes to opposing teams in the last four games. Considering he is completing 67.4 percent of his passes this season, he is expected to have a big day this weekend.
Fantasy running backs to start week 7:
Le'Veon Bell - The loss of Ben Roethlisburger (four about four weeks) may spook some fantasy owners of Le'Veon Bell, but there is no need to worry. Sure switching over to Landry Jones is a downgrade, but Bell is still a reliable runner and will see plenty of touches on the ball. Lock him in as a RB1 per usual.
Jaquizz Rodgers - Rodgers has a great matchup for week 7 against the 49ers. The 49ers defense has been allowing 5.0 yards per carry and over 160 total rushing yards more than any other team.
Fantasy Wide receivers to start week 7:
Marvin Jones - Jones has been a consistent WR1 so far. He is the only receiver to go on a streak of scoring at least seven fantasy points. Jones has become more of an aerial threat than Golden Tate. Wide receivers around the league have been averaging six catches for 88 yards and three touchdowns. I doubt Josh Norman will be able to contain him the whole game. He is expected to have some big plays.
Tyrell Williams - Williams continues to see a ton of red zone targets which makes him a valuable fantasy option. He has the most targets on the team with nine. He will likely be matched up against Desmond Trufant, so count him as a WR2 or high end WR3.
