DFS Fantasy Football Sunday Slate\r\nWelcome to Week 7 of the NFL season! It\u2019s time for our DFS Week 7 Starts and Sits. We had a pretty good week last week, so let's keep the good times rolling with another solid week of players who will be a bargain for your lineups and players who will just siphon your precious bankroll.\r\n\r\nI use the DraftKings salary cap as my basis for picks, which operates on a 50k salary but I know we have many FanDuel players as well. For reference, Fanduel operates on a 60k salary, so prices will appear higher on that platform.\r\n\r\nStart \u2018EM\r\nQB: Matt Ryan vs. LAR ($6,300)\r\n\r\nNow the Rams defense will look a bit different come Sunday, with the Jalen Ramsey trade and Aquib Talib on injured reserve. But even if Ramsey plays and is able to lock down Julio Jones, Matt Ryan has other weapons at his disposal.\r\n\r\nCalvin Ridley has been solid, as well as Mo Sanu. Let's not forget Austin Hooper, who has been a surprising TE1 in lineups this year, seeing a lot of volume in this offense. Hooper would be a great stack with Ryan this week against a defense that ranks 21st against opposing tight ends. Just a little bonus nugget for you there.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nRyan is priced below Kyler Murray and Aaron Rodgers this week, and although both of those QBs have good matchups, I still prefer Ryan for cheaper. Rodgers has one game with over 20 fantasy points this season, while Ryan has only one game with fewer than 20 fantasy points this season, as well as four games over 25 fantasy points. For my money, give me Matty Ice.\r\n\r\nRB: Leonard Fournette @ CIN ($7,000)\r\n\r\nI usually like to find cheaper options to feature in this column, but Fournette is outside the top five running backs on the slate this week and I think he will be worth his price tag.\r\n\r\nThe Bengals rank 31st in the league against opposing running backs, last in the league against rushing yards allowed per game, and 31st in total yards allowed per game. That is...not good.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThis is a smash game for Fournette, who has put up over 17 points in each of his last three games, including more than 26 points in two of those three games. The Bengals can't stop anyone, so expect the Jaguars to unleash Fournette on the ground en route to a victory.\r\n\r\nWR: T.Y. Hilton vs. HOU ($5,900)\r\n\r\nWhen Andrew Luck retired, it was assumed the Colts' season was in the toilet. But Jacoby Brissett has proven himself to be a starting QB in this league, and Hilton's production hasn't taken a massive hit as some expected. Bothered by a balky hamstring a couple of weeks ago, Hilton had an underwhelming game against the Chiefs. That was also in part due to Marlon Mack's ground assault on the Chiefs.\r\n\r\nWith the Colts on a bye last week, Hilton had some extra time to get healthy, and now he faces a Texans team that ranks 29th against opposing WR and gives up 266 yards passing per game. Houston's run defense is much better, allowing only 88 yards a game -- good enough for 8th in the league.\r\n\r\nThis will be a potential shootout to keep up with the high-octane Houston air raid, and Hilton has a great chance to be the beneficiary of this matchup. Stefon Diggs and Terry McLaurin are priced higher but have tough matchups. A.J. Green is also more expensive than Hilton, but he is questionable to play and comes with too much risk in my opinion. Hilton is a good mix of boom potential and a fair price tag.\r\nSit \u2018EM\r\nQB: Jimmy Garoppolo @WAS ($6,000)\r\n\r\nJimmy G looks to be in a prime spot against a very bad Washington Redskins team this weekend. They rank 20th against the pass, and the 49ers offense has been rolling. The problem is, most of their damage has been on the ground.\r\n\r\nGaroppolo has one of the lowest average target depths in the league at only 6.7 yards. For comparison, over the last two games DeShaun Watson has 12 total instances where his yards per attempt (YPA) was over 2o yards. Over that same span, Jimmy G has four. Simply put, the Niners don't throw the ball deep. If you are counting on Garoppolo carrying you to victory, you have to hope San Francisco throws inside the 5-yard line. I just don't see that happening. Kyle Shanahan wants to run the ball and beat you with quick throws.\r\n\r\nIf you want to bargain hunt for a QB this week, I'd take Jacoby Brissett, Philip Rivers, or Gardner Minshew over Jimmy G.\r\n\r\nRB: Mark Ingram @SEA ($6,600)\r\n\r\nOn the salary cap slate this week, Mark Ingram is priced above backs like Chris Carson and Marlon Mack, which you could argue is fair, given the matchups. However, I think Ingram is a prime candidate to bust this weekend. The Seahawks are decent against the run, and I think the defense will commit to stopping the run first and make Lamar Jackson beat them throwing the ball.\r\n\r\nSpeaking of Lamar Jackson, another problem with relying on Ingram is the number of designed runs the Ravens dial up for Jackson. Jackson has been very good as a dual-threat QB, but that has resulted in Ingram having only two games in which he has over 15 carries. The volume is a concern. His saving grace is his ability to pound in short-yardage touchdowns, but I don't like counting on a player scoring a touchdown when I am playing DFS. Give me volume and yardage: Those are the statistics that will prove to result in more consistent production.\r\n\r\nWR: Terry McLaurin vs. SF ($6,100)\r\n\r\nMcLaurin has been the bright spot in what has been another disappointing season for the Washington Redskins. He has eclipsed 17 fantasy points in every game this season but one -- and that was against the defensive juggernaut New England Patriots.\r\n\r\nEven with the quarterback mess in Washington, Scary Terry, McLaurin F1, whatever you want to call him, has been a consistent fantasy performer. However, he runs into a buzzsaw of defense in San Francisco. The Niners rank 1st in passing yards allowed per game, and second in both total yards allowed per game and points allowed per game.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThat doesn't inspire a lot of confidence this weekend. The next four cheaper WR are Larry Fitzgerald, DJ Chark,, T.Y. Hilton, and Robert Woods -- all who have much better matchups against teams toward the bottom of the league in passing defense. Feel free to fire up any one of them and don't bother taking F1 for a test drive this weekend.\r\n\r\nThose are your DFS Week 7 Starts and Sits. Good luck! Here\u2019s to hoping your fantasy football players ball out and you cash out.
