Week 7 is upon us and we have 6 teams on a bye this week. So there is some guys out here that I really like.
James Jones - this guy has been on fire as of late and everyone should be riding him as long as Jennings is out. He has 6 TD’s in the last 3 games and has 7 overall for the season. With Jennings most likely out for week 7, Jones will have another nice game this week.
Vick Ballard - Not a great showing in his first game as the starting RB. But wasn’t really his fault either. The Jets jumped ahead early, making the Colts have to resort to the passing game. The Browns have given up at least 100 yards rushing in 4 out of the 6 games so far this year. I look for Ballard to have a nice bounce back week.
Stevan Ridley - Ridley had a really rough week last week against The Seahawks. I don’t think he was given much of a fair shake either though. Ridley the 5th leading rusher in the NFL this year. Should come out against a soft Jets run defense and have a good game.
Matthew Stafford - I know it’s hard to sit someone with the talent of Stafford. But this guy has been really bad in his 3 trips to Soldier Field. He is 0-3 with 2 TD’s and 5 INT’s in 3 starts. Making matters worse the Bears are coming off a bye as well. If you can find another option use them this week.
Any of the Steelers RB - With Mendenhall & Redman out for this week’s game. I am not to big of a fan of Dwyer or Batch. I look for them to pass a little bit more this week. Take in the fact that they are the late game Sunday night as well. I would stay away from this mess for this week.
Shonne Greene - After his breakout performance last week against the Colts. People have jumped back on the Greene bandwagon. I have not, this guy is just not that good. Also cannot be trusted in Fantasy either. Count that in to the fact that the Patriots have held there last 3 opponents under a 100 yards. Stay away and don’t buy last week’s performance as a turnaround.
