Fantasy Football Projections for Week 7

Looking for some projections for the lineup you submitted for Week 7? Fake Teams and numberFire are here to help.

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Not all league hosting sites provide fantasy football player projections each week, so we are here to help. Weekly projections may help you decide who to start between two players at the same position, or who to start at your flex spot in your lineup. Projections can help you in deciding who to start in your FanDuel DFS cash games and tournaments each week, as well.

The guys at numberFire have offered to provide our readers with fantasy football projections for Week 7, so check them out in the numberFire grids below:

Week 7 Projections

Teams on Bye: Bears, Bengals, Broncos, Packers


numberFire is high on Chargers QB Philip Rivers, who is coming off a huge week 6 performance where he threw for over 500 yards and two scores, and this week, he faces off against division rival Raiders.

Lions Matthew Stafford will be looking to build upon his strong Week 6 performance against the Bears, as he takes on the Minnesota Vikings defense that ranks fourth in the NFL in fewest fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks.

Running Backs

Who saw this coming from Falcons Devonta Freeman this season? Freeman is the top ranked running back throughout the first six weeks of the season, and he faces off against the Titans defense that ranks seventh in fewest fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs this season.

The Steelers get a good matchup against the struggling Chiefs defense that ranks tenth in fewest fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs this season, but Le'Veon Bell should have a big day running and catching the ball out of the back field in Week 7.

Wide Receivers

I look for  Steelers WR Antonio Brown to put up an Antonio Brown-type game on Sunday vs the Chiefs pass defense that is allowing 34 fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Don't be afraid to start Martavis Bryant as well, as he is coming off a two touchdown performance in Week 6.

Cardinals WR Larry  Fitzgerald should have a good day on Sunday as he faces a Ravens secondary that is yielding the second most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers thus far, allowing 31 points per game.
