Arguably the main highlight from Week 6 was an injury to Aaron Rodgers that could mean he’s out for the season – a bad week for Packers fan!
Aside from that bombshell, it was another jam-packed week of NFL action and we made some START picks that proved to be quite fruitful for your Fantasy team. Some highlights were:
Zach Ertz = 9.80 Fantasy points (included 18 yards & 2 TD’s)
Melvin Gordon = 23.00 Fantasy points (included 150 yards & 2 TD’s)
Davante Adams = 9.40 Fantasy points (included 54 yards & 1 TD)
There are only a couple of teams on Bye Weeks this week. These include:
- Detroit Lions
- Houston Texans
Week 7: Which Player Has To Start In NFL Fantasy This Week?Each week members of Into The End Zone makes their one pick for a player must start in your NFL Fantasy Football team.
This could be because we like the match up, they're already scoring points for fun or because we genuinely just fancy it!
IntoTheEndZone Team Player Name Position Team Opponent Reason To Start Them Thomas Leonard Fournette Running Back Jacksonville Jaguars @ Indianapolis Colts This is a no-brainer. He's scored a TD in ever game he's played in 2017 and he has scored more than 10 fantasy points every week.
He came off with a slight injury in Week 6 and still put up 17.80 fantasy points. He will most likely be limited in practice this week to keep him fresh for the Colts - dangerous!
Neil Adrian Peterson Running Back Arizona Cardinals @ Los Angeles Rams [Playing at Twickenham, UK] The Rams currently have the 29th best ranked Rushing defense. Look for Arians to get him involved after a big first week with the team. Matt ("Stats") Charles Clay Tight End Buffalo Bills vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fresh off the Bye week and looking to maintain their 100% home record so far, I think the Bills will win this one.
In every game the Bills have won Clay has managed to score around 10 Fantasy points.
The Bucs give up on average 300 passing yards per game.
Carter Chris Thompson Running Back Washington Redskins @ Philadelphia Eagles The Eagles do have a solid D against the run but I'm going with Thompson on the fact he leads Washington in receiving yards and poses an all round threat, he's a key part of the Redskins Offense and has posted very respectful fantasy scores this season. Ricky Mark Ingram Running Back New Orleans Saints @ Green Bay Packers Ingram had a big week last week against a tough Lions D and will have a lot more movement against a beaten up Packers D, especially now Adrian Peterson isn't there to eat into his snaps.
What do you make of these selections?
