In Week 6 our top 3 suggested Must Start players all performed so good it was almost like they knew they were on our list. Hopefully you listened and had Bortles, Blount & Sanders in your starting lineups and they helped lead your team to victory. In Week 6 we grade our Clock Dodgers Must Start trio a perfect 3/3.
That was last week, and before us lies a new week of challenges. Week 7 is filled with big names on bye, so this is where the depth of your lineup starts to really come into play. At this point it is also very important you make the correct lineup decisions. One wrong player started could cost you a game and at this point in the season, depending on your record, that loss could make your playoff run much more difficult.
As always in this segment we mention 3 players that we feel must be in your lineups for Week 7. 1 QB, 1 RB, and 1 WR. This is not a sleeper list or deep player list. It is merely a trio of players you don’t want to outsmart yourself and keep out of your lineup, although they are not the most obvious all the time. Without a further ado, your Fantasy Football Week 7 Must Starts.
Ryan Tannehill, QB, Dolphins
The Dolphins are playing the Texans, which if he can avoid the likes of Watt & Cushing then he should have a good game. The Dolphins looked like a new team last week and we hope that it continues. He is a talented group of WR’s in Landry, Matthews & Stills, along with TE’s who can catch the ball in Cameron & Sims. Lamar Miller also looked great last week, so all things considered Tannehill should be set for a big game. Ryan Tannehill is our Week 7 Must Start QB of the week.
LeSean McCoy, RB, Bills
He came back from injury last week after being out for an extended period of time and did well. This week McCoy goes up against the Jaguars defense who has not been great at stopping RB’s. Whether running the ball or catching passes out of the backfield, RB’s have found a bunch of success against them. If Taylor is back it will be even easier for McCoy to get his points but if not, it will not hurt him. LeSean McCoy is our Week 7 Must Start RB of the week.
John Brown, WR, Cardinals
I know what you’re thinking, isn’t Fitzgerald the #1 WR in Arizona? If so, you would be correct, however, the Cardinals have the type of offense where everyone can get a slice. I expected Brown to have a huge season and although he has started off slow within my expectations, he actually hasn’t been half bad. My belief is that the second half of the season is going to be the John Brown show in Arizona. This week he faces a terrible Ravens secondary that can’t seem to handle any WR, especially burners like Brown who can take the top off the defense. Look for Brown to be big time again as our Week 7 Must Start WR of the week.
*As mentioned to us on Twitter by a fellow Clock Dodger. John Brown may be out this week (tweaked hamstring after the article was written). If so, get Michael Floyd in your lineups. Fitzgerald & Floyd should be in for a big day.
