Fantasy Football Week 7 Pickup

Boh Suh, Staff Writer

Almost half way to the season! 


  1. Teddy Bridgewater (Carolina Panthers) – Bridgewater has not been consistent this season so far, but the matchup against the Atlanta is hard to ignore.
  2. Derek Carr (Las Vegas Raiders) – Joe Burrow has his best game against the Cleveland Browns, and Carr should be able to produce a good number this week.

Running Backs (RB) 

  1. Wayne Gallman (New York Giants) – With Devonta Freeman being questionable to play, Gallman filled in his shoes well last week with 10 carries 34 yards, five receptions 20 yards, and a Touchdown (TD). The matchup against Tampa Bay this week is not ideal, but if you needaRB this week, Gallman is your guy. 
  2. JaMycalHasty (San Francisco 49ers) – How many San Francisco RBs are going to be out this season? Jeff Wilson Jr. seems to be the star this week with 112 rushing yards and eight receiving yards with three TDs, but he is out now. Hasty should be the next man up.. 

Wide Receivers 

  1. 1.Nelson Agholor (Las Vegas Raiders) – Agholor has been consistent in the past three weeks, and the last week was his best performance (107 receiving yards and a TD). The matchup against the Cleveland Browns is likely a shootout, so expect another big performance from him.
  2. Alshon Jeffrey (Philadelphia Eagles) –I mentioned him last week, and he has been practicing in a limited basis in the past weeks. I really believe that his return is imminent, and he should be the Philadelphia’s number one receiver.  

Tight End 

  1. Mike Gesicki (Miami Dolphins) – Gesickiscoredzero points in week six, and a bye week in week seven made many fantasy football managers to drop him. However, with Tua Tagovailoa now under command, Gesicki’s value goes up. 
  2. Logan Thomas (Washington Football Team) – Thomas has had four targets in the past four weeks. That is a lot of 4s! However, he has also secured twoTDs  fortwo weeks in a row. Washington has a nice matchup the week after this bye week against the New York Giants, and expect Thomas to have a similar performance. 


  1. Green Bay Packers Defense/Special Team (D/ST) – The rivalry matchup against the Minnesota Vikings can be always risky, but with their RB possibly out again, the Packers may not be a bad choice for this week.
  2. Kansas City Chiefs D/ST – I put this as second because they are the most popular add after last week’s performance. And the matchup against New York Jets this week is always a dream matchup.


Hope for the best….
