Week 7 Fantasy Football Recap!
Amazon Prime gave us a good game Thursday night between the Arizona Cardinals and the New Orleans Saints. All-Pro Wide Receiver DeAndre Hopkins returned from a six-game suspension and helped the Cardinals win 42-34. Eno Benjamin rushed 12 times for 92 yards and a touchdown for the Cardinals.
Quarterback Dak Prescott returned to the Cowboys after missing 5 games with a thumb injury. Unfortunately, he had a low-scoring fantasy football day with only 207 yards passing and 1 touchdown. The fantasy monster of the day was the Cowboys Dooms Day Defense, as they only gave up 6 points and had 5 sacks, 2 interceptions, and 3 fumble recoveries in their 24-6 victory over the Detroit Lions.
The Carolina Panthers traded away superstar running back Christian McCaffrey to the 49ers earlier in the week. Then, they went to Tampa Bay and pulled the year’s upset as they beat the Bucs 21-3. Tom Brady only had 290 passing yards and 0 TDs for the Bucs.
Patrick Mahomes, JuJu-Smith Schuster, Mecole Hardman, and Travis Kelce all had monster fantasy numbers as the Kansas City Chiefs blew out the 49ers 44-23.
Nick Chubb had 16 rushes for 91 yards and a touchdown in the Browns’ loss to the Ravens.
Raider’s running back Josh Jacobs rushed 20 times for 143 yards and 3 touchdowns in the win over the Texans.
The Seahawks don’t rebuild. They reload. Quarterback Geno Smith is one of the top quarterbacks in the league, and rookie running back Ken Walker III has become a fantasy starter since Rashaad Penny injured his leg. Walker rushed 23 times for 168 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Seahawk’s win over the Chargers 37-23. Austin Ekeler rushed nine times for 31 yards and 1 touchdown, adding 12 catches for 96 yards and a touchdown for the Chargers.
Bengals QB Joe Burrow completed 33-of-42 passes for 481 yards and 3 touchdowns, adding 20 rushing yards and a touchdown. His BFF Ja’Marr Chase caught 8-of-11 targets for 130 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Bengals’ win over the Falcons 35-17. However, the Falcon’s Tight End, Kyle Pitts, is a fantasy bust. He has 178 receiving yards and 1 touchdown through six games.
Colt’s quarterback Matt Ryan looked like a fantasy stud throwing for 398 yards and 3 touchdowns last week. This week he threw for 243 yards 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions. Unfortunately, he hurt his should and lost his starting job. His teammate Jonathan Taylor is the biggest fantasy bust of the year. He was the consensus number-one overall draft pick in almost every fantasy football league. He had 58 rushing yards in the Colt’s loss to the Titans 19-10.
Speaking of losses, the Jet’s rookie sensation Breece Hall is out for the season after tearing his ACL. And it looks like Mac Jones lost his starting QB job to Bailey Zappe. On a positive note, Tua Tagovailoa returned to the Dolphins after missing two weeks in the concussion protocol and beat the Steelers 16-10.
