Fantasy football outlooks and picks for week seven


QB, Matthew Stafford (DET) – I had Stafford as my sleeper last week, and to no surprise, he delivered. With no depth in the backfield, the Detroit offense has been playing primarily in the air, and a matchup against the Washington Redskins’ injury-plagued pass rush is favorable.

RB, LeSean McCoy (BUF) – Shady McCoy went off on San Francisco, led by his former coach Chip Kelly, last weekend. McCoy continues to be the focal point of Buffalo’s offense, and he’s a really great start against the mediocre Miami Dolphins this weekend.


TE, Hunter Henry (SD) – I was hesitant about Henry’s production when Antonio Gates returned, but that hasn’t seemed to make a difference. The rookie owned in 49 percent of leagues has scored three touchdowns in three games, and will look to continue the streak against Atlanta.

WR, Cameron Meredith (CHI) – Since Kevin White was placed on the season-ending IR, Meredith has accrued over 140 yards and a touchdown. He’s only owned in 33 percent of leagues, and looks to continue to strive on an offense that throws the ball 40 times per game.


WR, Kenny Britt (LA) – Don’t even think about starting Kenny Britt. One multi-score game this season does not justify a reason to start a player who took six weeks to find the end zone.

QB, Brock Osweiler (HOU) – Somebody explain to me why the Texans are paying Osweiler $72 million for the way he’s played this season. He hasn’t thrown more than two touchdowns in a game, and playing Denver this weekend won’t be a walk in the park.

TE, Coby Fleener (NO) – Fleener might have three touchdowns through three games, but his involvement and shares of pass attempts fluctuates and makes him a highly risky flex. Look elsewhere if you can.
