Week Seven Fantasy Football Rankings FREEBIE: Frank Stampfl Fantasy Football Rankings
NOBODY CIRCLES THE WAGONS LIKE THE BUFFALO BILLS. Welcome to Bills week as they come off their bye to face the Miami Dolphins. We’re entering that stretch of the Fantasy Football season where things get really tough. We have four teams on a bye and are dealing with a bunch of injuries to big-name players, including Davante Adams, Amari Cooper, Hollywood Brown, Josh Gordon, Tyrell Williams, and the list goes on and on. All we can do is keep plugging along so let’s do just that.
It’s definitely chalky but like I mentioned, it’s Buffalo Bills week. Josh Allen will face the Dolphins in Week 7, a defense that is allowing the most Fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. In fact, they’ve allowed 14 passing touchdowns with just one interception. Allen has improved as a passer this season, seeing his completion percentage rise from 52.8-percent in 2018 to 62.6-percent this year. Allen will still make mistakes and turn the ball over but it’s somewhat mitigated by his rushing upside. Allen’s 41 rushing attempts this season are second-most at the QB position behind only Lamar Jackson. He’ll get it done here against the Dolphins. A little further down the ranks, Danny Dimes should be able to bounce back against the Arizona Cardinals at home. Yes, Patrick Peterson is back but Daniel Jones should still be able to take advantage of the Evan Engram and Golden Tate matchups. This total is up to 50.5 so we should expect points both ways.
Hold your nose and cover your mouths because this might be the worst threesome I’ve ever presented. I am on Carlos Hyde, Royce Freeman, and Frank Gore heading into Week 7. Hyde is coming off season-highs in carries (26), rushing yards (116), and he added a touchdown against the Chiefs. In Week 7 Hyde faces the Colts who are allowing 4.71 yards per carry to opposing running backs. Royce Freeman plays tonight so make sure to get him in there! Over the past two games, the Chiefs have allowed Marlon Mack and Hyde to average 124 rushing yards per game. Yes, Phillip Lindsay is going to get his, but Freeman should have success running plus he’s accounted for 13-percent of the Broncos target share this season. Everybody is hyping up Devin Singletary and rightfully so but Frank Gore isn’t gone yet. Gore is averaging 4.4 yards per carry on the season and is facing the Dolphins who just allowed another senior citizen in Adrian Peterson to run for 118 yards. Expect Gore to see 12-16 touches in a great matchup and if they get down near goal-line, Gore will score.
This Los Angeles Rams-Atlanta Falcons game is an interesting one for many reasons. Can Jared Goff bounce back? Will Jalen Ramsey play and shadow Julio Jones. The one thing we do know is this total is 54.5, by far the highest on the slate. There will be points and I want exposure to this game. Personally, I do believe Ramsey plays and shadows Julio as well. Enter Calvin Ridley. Ridley has now had at least six targets in five of six games and has scored a touchdown in back-to-back weeks. As I mentioned earlier, I think Tate is in a good spot against the Cardinals, matched up against Tramaine Brock Sr. in the slot. Just two weeks ago, Tyler Boyd torched the Cardinals in the slot for 10 receptions, 123 yards, and a touchdown. Since rejoining the Giants, Tate has accounted for 22-percent of their target share and just torched the Patriots for 6-102-1. Tate is in play as a low-end WR2, high-end WR3.
Just before the bye, we saw Dawson Knox with a season-high five targets. Knox is a freak athlete who has big upside in dynasty leagues because he should get better as the years go on. He might not be there yet but he’s worth a stream going against this awful Dolphins team. On the season, Miami is allowing the 11th most Fantasy points to opposing tight ends. If Knox sees 4-6 targets, he should make the most of that matchup.
