Week Seven is staring down the barrel, and it seems like I might be starting to get into a groove. Don’t get me wrong, some of my picks last week were still atrocious, but I gave you Fields (who had a great fantasy game, not so much a great real game) and Claypool, who scored 39 points between the two of them. Here’s how all my picks from last week played out:

QB: Justin Fields, 19 Points

QB: Zach Wilson, 5 Points

RB: Joshua Kelley, DNP

RB: Tevin Coleman, 0 Points

WR: Chase Claypool, 20 Points

WR: Rondale Moore, 8 Points

I’m going to try and keep the room-temperature ball rolling here in week seven, so if you want to ride along with me, you can be sure to take prop bets on any of my sleepers through these New Jersey Online Casinos.

Quarterbacks:

Jimmy Garoppolo (Owned in 47% of leagues)

Garoppolo has been in great form recently, scoring 18 fantasy points in both weeks five and six. Here in week seven, he’ll be looking to keep the momentum flowing against the Kansas City Chiefs, who have allowed a league-leading 2.5 touchdown passes per game to opposing QBs. The Chiefs have also given up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing QBs this season, so Garoppolo may be in store for his third great week in a row. He’s thrown for at least 238 yards in each of his last three games, and has two touchdowns in each of his last two.

Jacoby Brissett (Owned in 10% of leagues)

Brissett really hasn’t been terrible this year (in fantasy terms, at least). He’s scored over 10 points in every game so far this season, and has only failed to throw for 200+ yards once. He has a bit of trouble keeping the ball away from opposing defenders (with 5 picks on the year) but he’s managed to score a touchdown in five of this year’s six games. He’ll also be taking on a Baltimore Ravens defense in week seven, who have allowed 11 passing touchdowns all season (which is tied for third-highest in all of the NFL).

Running Backs:

Kenyan Drake (Owned in 48% of leagues)

Kenyan Drake emerged to lead the Baltimore backfield in Week six, after JK Dobbins was sidelined with an injury. While Dobbins remains out, Justice Hill returns here in week seven, which may offer some competition for Drake. However, the Ravens will be taking on the Browns in week seven, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points to opposing running backs so far this season. 

Sony Michel (Owned in 6% of leagues)

Running backs are tough, so if you’re rolling your eyes at this pick, just hear me out. Michel moved up on the Chargers' depth chart last week into the #2 RB slot thanks to an injury to Joshua Kelley. While he only totaled 28 yards in the Chargers' week six win over the Broncos, they still looked to him 8 times throughout the game (and three through the air). They’ll be going up against the Seattle Seahawks this week, who have given up the ninth most points to opposing running backs on the year. I’m not saying Michel will have a monster week, but he may be a good filler for a bye or injury.

Wide Receivers:

Wan’Dale Robinson (Owned in 25% of leagues)

Robinson was sidelined for the first five weeks of the 2022 season, but his coming-out party in week six went about as good as he could’ve hoped. While he only totaled 37 yards on three receptions, one of them was for a touchdown–which was good for 11 fantasy points. The Giants will be taking on the Jaguars in week seven, who have allowed 244.5 passing yards per game.

Russell Gage (Owned in 28% of leagues)

Gage has had a season to forget, only breaking the 5 fantasy point threshold once so far this season. However, he’s remained the Buccaneers #3 WR in the absence of Julio Jones, and still see’s 4+ targets a week. The Buccs are taking on the Panthers here in week seven, who have allowed the fourth-most receptions to wide receivers so far this season.
