Week 7 Position Rankings

Got a few sleepers on this list, but that post is yet to come.

Again, we have a ton of injuries to think about. San Diego’s Antonio Gates will probably play, but there is no way he will be 100%. Malcom Floyd looks like he might not be playing either. And Naanee is questionable. This greatly increases Patrick Crayton and Ryan Mathews, but brings Philip Rivers down a bit.

Vince Young’s status is still uncertain, but don’t expect a ton out of Britt or Washington if Young is out. Scaife’s production will increase though with Kerry Collins as QB.

So, as always, this is just a rough look at the league this week. Tons of great matchups for all the big names. Pray that you arent matched up against the owner of Steven Jackson or Ray Rice, or really anyone that plays for the Cowboys or Giants. Remember to check on injury status before throwing any of these guys in, because we are definitely to the point where 50% of the NFL is injured.

Lets do this…

    what do you think about Danny Woodhead?
    can this player continue like he did in is previous matchup?
    what do you think about Eddie Royal? does the harmstring injury can manage less point in the futures week? if i pick woodhead I must drop Royal!
    hightower or brandon jackson for the rest of the season?

    • Kevin

      Quick answer from me to help you out. Disclaimer is that I’m not Andrew but I had Hightower earlier in the season.

      The fact is that as long as Beanie Wells is healthy Hightower is going to come out on the short end of a 60-40 timeshare. Couple that with the fact that Arizona is arguably the worst team in the NFL and it makes for a very bad run for Hightower. Just look at his production since Wells returned from injury. IMHO Jackson is better going forward assuming Wells stays healthy. It’s a gamble for you on the pick up either way but unless your league is very deep Hightower will be left alone until such a time as Wells is picked up.

    • woodhead could be alright this year. he’ll see about half the carries and get a handful of receptions out of the backfield. I’m not positive about the RB injuries situation in NE, but i think woodhead has proved that he is good enough to play every week. his production will fluctuate, but he is there if you need him.
      Royal is a #1 receiver. He will likely not play this week, but i think he’ll only be affected by the injury for a week or 2. its a tough call to drop him, because he has been productive. Royal will see the endzone more, but yardage wise, (with rushing and receiving combined) they are about even.

      BJax is much better for the rest of the year than hightower.

    I see Marshawn Lynch much higher than Felix Jones on this list…I have to choose between the 2 of them…Cardinals D kinda sucks…but felix tends to see a lot of action…anyone have a scale-tipping suggestion on this one?

    • Jeff

      I’m goin with lynch vs the shitty D.

    • Arizona give up 27 points and 140 rushing yards per game. Lynch is primed for a breakout week and this is the best team in the NFL to do it against. Felix jones always has potential, but with the Cowboys being my team, I know that they are having trouble on the ground, and since they are always tied up at the end of games due to massive penalties and mistakes, they are much more of a passing team. Even if for some reason they do get way ahead in this game and run the ball, I have to imagine that Marion Barber will get the majority of late carries.

      Lynch will rack it up this week, count on it.
      Jones always has potential to break one, but he hasnt done much this year at all.
