Hopefully, you caught a glimpse of our Derek Carr recommendation for Week 7, as he came up big against the Chargers, throwing for 289 yards and three scores. We had some lukewarm calls with Pierre Garcon, Theo Riddick and Jacob Tamme (that’s generous), and a miss with DeAnthony Thomas for whom we knew we were trying to dig deep.
So, now it’s time to focus on the task at hand. Some productive players will hit the bench this week for a bye from Philly, Washington, Buffalo and most of all Jacksonville (amazing, right?). Clearly, Foster going down is a huge blow, and there are others that continue to struggle with injuries like Antonio Gates and Austin Seferian-Jenkins (whose teammate, Vincent Jackson, will also be on the shelf). Let’s see what we can churn up from deep inside the weekly rankings. It’s on…the Sneaky Plays for Week 7!
