NFL Start'em Sit'em Week 7

NFL Start'em Sit'em Week 7
By Wild on Sports Analyst Jason Gillson

A look around the NFL at the Week 7 fantasy football landscape as we give you 5 players who are under the radar players to start as well as five usual starters that might look better on your bench this week.

Start'em 5

Nick Foles QB PHI
Foles is coming off a monster week last week where he threw for three touchdowns and ran for another. This week Foles and the Eagles draw a Cowboys team that has given up the third most points to fantasy quarterbacks this season. Still available in many leagues, Foles would be a nice pick up in a bye week for a QB like Drew Brees.

Joseph Randal RB DAL
With DeMarco Murray on the shelf for a few weeks the scramble is on to grab back-up Joseph Randal off the waiver wire. Owned in just 4% of leagues he is sure to be the most highly sought after player this week. Grab him while you can!

Harry Douglas WR ATL
With both Julio Jones and Roddy White out Douglas rises to the top of the WR depth chart this week and is sure to be a popular target for Matt Ryan's depleted offense. While he may not put up dazzling yard totals he is likely to get 6-8 targets and likely a couple of looks in the end zone after double teams to Tony Gonzalez.

Riley Cooper WR PHI
Cooper was Foles favorite target last week, which is surprising given the end of game totals of fellow receiver DeSaun Jackson. Jackson, for obvious reasons is going to get the bulk of the attention from a mediocre Cowboys secondary. This should open things up for Cooper to be the top target for the second week in a row. If you were plagued by a injury to a big time receiver, Cooper would be a nice short term waiver pick-up.

Dallas Clark TE BAL
Joe Flacco loves to throw the ball to big tight ends. Dennis Pitta had been his favorite target for a couple seasons before an injury forced him to the sidelines early in the season. Clark has quietly reemerged as a viable option, particularly in the red-zone. While he is not the same player that he was in his days as Peyton Manning's running mate in Indy, he can still create space for himself and has the hands to be dangerous. While not a top tier start like some of the others listed above, Clark is worth monitoring in the coming weeks after a strong week 6.

Sit'em 5
Joe Flacco QB BAL
Don't look now but the Steelers are out for blood. Mike Tomlin's team is coming off their first win of the season against the Jets and would like nothing better than to help dampen the playoff hopes of their inner-division foe.

Steven Ridley RB NE
Ridley has reemerged as the starting back after a stint in the doghouse early in the season due to fumble troubles. This week he goes up against a Jets defense that has allowed the fewest points to fantasy backs of any team in the league.

Roddy White WR ATL
As mentioned above in the Harry Douglas piece, White is out for week 7 and has been a virtual non-factor to this point anyway. He should be buried deep on your bench for the foreseeable future.

Larry Fitzgerald WR ARI
Fitzgerald had a nice little bounce back week last week but draws Richard Sherman and the stingy Seahawks secondary this week. There are far better options out there.

Joesph Fauria TE DET
Everybody's wonder child after a three touchdown performance last week. Unfortunately, as not even the top TE on his own roster. Flash in the pan, don't over pay for the hype.
