2019 Fantasy Football: Week 7 PPR Rankings

Frank Ammirante | October 16th, 2019 

Week six featured the triumphant return of Tyreek Hill, continued dominance from Deshaun Watson, and a breakout performance from Kyler Murray. The biggest question we have heading into week seven is the health of Patrick Mahomes, as he’s been slowed down by a bum ankle over the last two weeks. Will Mahomes rebound against a rejuvenated Broncos’ defense on a short week?

19Philip Riversat Titans
20Derek Carrat Packers
21Mitchell Trubiskyvs. Bears
22Sam Darnoldvs. Patriots
23Teddy Bridgewaterat Bears
24Joe Flaccovs. Chiefs

Wilson has been the best fantasy quarterback this season, so he claims the position of QB1 in a projected shootout with a 50.5 total against Jackson and the Ravens. The dark horse for QB1 is Allen, who faces the worst defense in football in the Miami Dolphins. Allen should be able to rack up yards both on the ground and in the air against this putrid defense.

33Devin Singletaryvs. Dolphins
34Kenyan Drakeat Bills
35Jamaal Williamsvs. Raiders
36Chris Thompsonvs. 49ers

Cook claims RB1 spot for the week with Christian McCaffrey on the bye. He takes on a Lions defense that is allowing 133.8 rushing yards per game. The dark horse for RB1 is Lindsay, who should be the focal point of a run-heavy game-plan against a Chiefs’ defense that is getting shredded on the ground for 161.8 yards per game.

43Robby Andersonvs. Patriots
44Demarcus Robinsonat Broncos
45Anthony Millervs. Saints
46Preston Williamsat Bills
47Willie Sneadat Seahawks
48Demaryius Thomasvs. Patriots

Thomas has been one of the most consistent wide receivers in the NFL this year, so he claims WR1, even in a tough match-up against the Bears. The dark horse for WR1 is Cooks, who should get loose on the fast track against a porous Falcons’ secondary. This is a smash spot for him in a game with a 54 point total.

Tight Ends

1Evan Engramvs. Cardinals
2George Kittleat Redskins
3Travis Kelceat Broncos
4Austin Hoopervs. Rams
5Zach Ertzat Cowboys
6Hunter Henryat Titans

8Darren Wallerat Packers

18Jack Doylevs. Texans
19Jordan Akinsat Colts
20Tyler Eifertvs. Jaguars
21Mike Gesickiat Bills
22Luke Willsonvs. Ravens
23Trey Burtonvs. Saints
24Jeremy Sprinklevs. 49ers

Engram returns to action as the TE1 against the Cardinals, who we continue to pick on every week for their lack of coverage towards opposing tight ends. The dark horse for TE1 is Walker, who should see an uptick in production with the quarterback change from Marcus Mariota to Ryan Tannehill.

D/STs

RankTeamOpponent
   
1New England Patriotsat Jets
2Buffalo Billsvs. Dolphins
3San Francisco 49ersat Redskins
4Chicago Bearsvs. Saints
5Tennessee Titansvs. Chargers
6Jacksonville Jaguarsat Bengals
7Los Angeles Chargersat Titans
8New Orleans Saintsat Bears
9Green Bay Packersvs. Raiders
10Minnesota Vikingsat Lions
11Houston Texansat Colts
12Detroit Lionsvs. Vikings

The Patriots defense is on a historic run right now, producing similar fantasy points to an elite running back. They remain as D/ST1 against Darnold and the Jets. The dark horse for D/ST1 is the Titans, who should be rejuvenated by the quarterback change. Look for them to force a couple of turnovers from Rivers.
