The Fantasy Football 2019 NFL regular season. As we continue the regular season, let’s take a look at the best starts and sits heading into Week 7 of your fantasy football matchups.
Start of the Week: John Brown vs Miami Dolphins
Are you understanding the theme this week? Start all of your Bills. When we last saw John Brown, he had back to back games with 5 catches and he’s operating as clearly the best wide receiver in Buffalo. He also gives you a shot at big points as he is a deep threat facing the worst team in all of football. Terry McLaurin just beat this team for two touchdowns and I definitely think John Brown can find his way into the endzone at least once in this game.
Start – DJ Chark @ Cincinnati Bengals: The Chark-nado finally weakened last week as the Jaguars star receiver reeled in three catches for 43 yards. This week though, things loosen up considerably as he will be facing a struggling Bengals secondary that hasn’t been able to stop anyone all year. This should be a nice bounceback game for Chark.
Start – Adam Thielen @ Detroit Lions: Stefon Diggs gobbled up most of the fantasy points this past week, but Adam Thielen still didn’t kill you as he found the endzone. Thielen has been more consistent on a week to week basis and I think this is lining up as a monster Thielen game against the Detroit Lions.
Start – Robert Woods @ Atlanta Falcons: The entire Rams offense looked horrendous against the 49ers, but Robert Woods saved you with a running touchdown. I think this week the entire offense will rebound against a Falcons squad that is getting burned like a bunch of Ramblin’ Rabbits. Fire up Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and even Brandin Cooks in this matchup.
Start – Darius Slayton vs Arizona Cardinals: The Giants rookie wide receiver has been a bright spot operating as a deep threat for Daniel Jones. Though he hasn’t exploded yet, he’s had some nice games and I think this spot against the Cardinals could lead to a true breakout game for Slayton. If you’re hurting at wide receiver, Slayton is nice dart throw with upside.
Start – Christian Kirk @ New York Giants: If Christian Kirk is able to return from injury against the Giants, I would have no qualms sliding him back into my starting lineup. Kirk was clearly the second target on the offense behind the timeless Larry Fitzgerald and the Giants defense gives it up pretty easily to opposing wide receivers. If he plays, this should be a nice comeback game for Christian Kirk.
Sit of the Week: Terry McLaurin vs San Francisco 49ers
After last week’s performance, it’s going to be hard to sit Terry McLaurin. However, the 49ers defense is operating at such a high level that I would be nervous about starting any offensive players against them. McLaurin is on a historic pace for a rookie wide receiver and on almost any other team he’d be a weekly start, but the Redskins offense is mostly terrible, relying on Adrian Peterson to move the running game. It’s unclear who his quarterback will be for the rest of the year, but the moment Case Keenum comes out again, it’s a downgrade for Scary Terry. Avoid him if you can on Sunday.
Sit – Tyrell Williams @ Green Bay Packers: The Packers run defense can be had but the pass defense has been pretty good all year. With that said, I really like Josh Jacobs in this matchup, but I’m down on Tyrell Williams. You can probably get away with starting him and hope he finds the endzone, but if he doesn’t, you’re likely to be disappointed.
Sit – Marvin Jones vs Minnesota Vikings: Unfortunately, if you drafted Marvin Jones late hoping for value, he simply has not delivered. Jones seems to be an afterthought in this offense, working as a secondary receiver to Kenny Golladay. The targets are spread pretty thin on this team which is surprising given the rest of the skill position players, but until further notice, Jones is a fade, especially in tough matchups.
Sit – Marquise Brown @ Seattle Seahawks: This is more about his health than his talent, but Marquise Brown should stay on your bench. The Seahawks are not a top ten defense anymore, but they’re still decent and they’re playing at home. Brown’s ankle is not fully recovered and so I’m probably not going to play him this week.
Sit – Robby Anderson vs New England Patriots: After exploding last week, Robby Anderson should stay on your bench this week. Stephon Gilmore is playing like the best cornerback in the NFL right now and the Patriots defense as a whole has only allowed 1 offensive touchdown to date. Anderson is a sell-high option in package deals, but it’s probably not a good idea to play him.
Sit – Corey Davis vs Los Angeles Chargers: Perhaps Ryan Tannehill can give this team a boost, as he has been named the starter in this upcoming matchup against the Chargers. It’s definitely a wait and see proposition for this passing offense, so if you scoop up Corey Davis, keep him on your bench until the picture in Tennessee is more clearly defined.
