So is this the NFL or the Trevor Lawrence competition? We currently have 8 teams in the league with 1 win or less. We would’ve had 9 teams but two of those sorry sacks played each other on Thursday night. In a game that seemed like neither team wanted a victory, the Eagles came close to their second tie of the season but pulled out a close win on Wentz’s shoulders. Also was there a sniper in the stands?
Despite the lackluster Thursday Night Football game and the poor records of many teams through Week 7, we still have some attractive games. Check out the matchups, fantasy players, rookies, and injuries below. Welcome in from Week 6, Week 7 awaits you.
Matchups to watch
Pittsburgh Steelers 5-0 at Tennessee Titans 5-0 1pm- This game is game of the week, hands down. We have an undefeated matchup that could be a playoff preview. Can the Steeler defense contain this versatile Titans offense?
Carolina Panthers 3-3 at New Orleans Saints 3-2 1pm- NFC South matchup to really take a crucial position in the division. Right behind the Bucs.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 4-2 at Las Vegas Raiders 3-2 4:05pm– Speaking of the Bucs, they travel to Vegas to slow a little early season success of their former Super Bowl winning head coach. Talk about a story line.
San Francisco 49ers 3-3 at New England Patriots 2-3 4:25pm- Will Jimmy G. outplay Cam? If so, how does that sit in New England?
Seattle Seahawks 5-0 at Arizona Cardinals 4-2 8:20pm- Get ready for an air show especially with Jamal Adams still sidelined.
Fantasy player to watch
Russel Wilson, QB Seattle Seahawks, Like I just mentioned, Wilson will be the pilot of an all out air attack. No defensive back is safe. Endzones will be frequented like your favorite watering hole.
Ronald Jones, RB Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Is the man for this team and his running mate in the backfield has given the team life. Fournette’s injury has also helped Jones. RoJo has accumulated 330 rushing yards and 2 TDs over the last 3 games.
Jerick McKinnon, RB San Francisco 49ers, Mostert is out and McKinnon shines when he is given the opportunity.
Derrick Henry, RB Tennessee Titans, The ball is going to head towards him a lot. He will catch about 3 screens for 35+ yards for your PPR folks.
DJ Chark, WR Jacksonville Jaguars, Hasn’t seen the endzone in a while and I bet he is itching to get back on track with Minshew.
Rookies to watch
James Robinson, RB Jacksonville Jaguars, Consistently Robinson has been leaned on. Many around the facilities are wondering why he is not getting more touches.
Joe Burrow, QB Cincinnati Bengals, Lights it up all the time and is playing the banged up Browns. Burrow will have to carry the team this week if they want to win.
Antonio Gibson, RB Washington Football Team, Gibson hasn’t come close to 100 yard rushing game, but has found the endzone 3 times. He is a bright spot in Washington.
Justin Herbert, QB Los Angeles Chargers, Playing the Jags.
Tee Higgins, WR Cincinnati Bengals, I bet Higgins will give us a similar performance to what Justin Jefferson has given us this season.
Joe Mixon, RB Cincinnati Bengals, Big loss for the Bengals. Seems like Mixon misses games often, throughout his career. Look for Giovani Bernard to help cover his shift.
David Bakhtiari, LT Green Bay Packers, Big loss for the Packers. Bakhtiari is a crucial piece in keeping the ol’ vet Aaron Rodgers upright.
Myles Jack, LB Jacksonville Jaguars, Jack has been performing at a high level this season but has been hampered by injuries of late. He will be out for the Jags and he will welcome the upcoming bye week.
Jamal Adams, S Seattle Seahawks, Missing another game. His presence will be sorely missed this week and the Seahawks face the dangerous Cardinals.
Raheem Mostert, RB San Francisco 49ers, He thought he was back but he must have aggravated his injury. Jerick McKinnon will put up the pieces.
Thanks for Reading everyone. Please enjoy Week 7 and catch us next Sunday for NFL what to watch.
