Fantasy Football Week 7 Start or Sit Quarterbacks
Which quarterbacks should you start or sit in fantasy football for Week 7? Here are my recommendations below.
Russell Wilson should be back on track in Week 7 facing the St. Louis Rams who currently give up the eighth most fantasy points to quarterbacks. Sweep Wilson’s last week dud game under the rug and start him in Week 7.
Joe Flacco is hot so how can you not start him against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7? Atlanta has allowed an average of 277 passing yards per game to quarterbacks.
Cam Newton is a start in Week 7 as “Superman” has finally emerged. The Packers’ defense who’ve allowed only seven passing TD’s this season shouldn’t scare you off from starting Cam. Temper expectations just a bit if Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) doesn’t play though.
Brian Hoyer makes a suitable start in Week 8 facing a Jaguars’ defense who have allowd 314 yards to quarterbacks per game this season. Believe it or not, Hoyer only has one interception in five games. He’ll suffice as a fill-in for Nick Foles if need be.
Starting Brian Hoyer over Drew Brees in Fantasy this week. I think the Mayans were just 2 years early on their prediction. #Apocalypse

Tony Romo remains a start in Week 7 against the NY Giants. Anyone quarterback who can give Seattle the business deserves a start and these Dallas/NY Giants matchups tend to be barnburners.
Colin Kaepernick had a clean game last week with three TD’s. The Broncos have allowed an average of 255 passing yards per game. Add that to Kaep’s mobile game and he’s a QB2 start in Week 7.
Alex Smith faces the San Diego Chargers where Derek Carr of all quarterbacks just passed for four touchdowns. The odds are in Smith’s favor in Week 7.
Ben Roethlisberger in Week 7 should get back on track against Houston’s defense who’ve allowed an average of 280 passing yards per game and 10 total QB touchdowns.
Tom Brady, New England Patriots is a definite start in Week 7 against the New York Jets. Coming off of two awesome games and playing the Jets where he has averaged two TD’s and almost 300 yards per game in his past seven games against them gives Brady the green light in Week 7.
Drew Brees – yes you are seeing Brees as a Week 7 sit. Reasons: Brees isn’t great on the road, he’s likely going to be without Jimmy Graham, the Detroit Lions are the No. 1 ranked defense against QB’s and they have allowed only 6.80 fantasy points on average per game to opposing QB’s this season. I’d start Rivers or Flacco over Brees given the choice. I’m not saying to start someone like Ryan Fitzpatrick or Teddy Bridgewater over Brees, but if you have better options, Brees is a sit if Graham doesn’t play.
Eli Manning is just too hard to trust after screwing up what should have been a field day against Philadelphia last week. He’s lost his chemistry with TE Larry Donnell, he’s without Victor Cruz. Dallas had limited Russell Wilson last week, so imagine Eli’s fate in Week 7.
Obvious Quarterback Sits:
Geno Smith, Teddy Bridgewater, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Kyle Orton
