Fantasy Football Quick Hits: What We Learned in Week 7

Quick Hits: Week 7
Dorian “The Trashman” Colbert,

Some brief thoughts on what happened in yesterday’s games.

FL: Free Agent Press Conference

Vincent Jackson will thrive under rookie QB Mike Glennon. Mike Williams won’t.

Doug Martin’s shoulder isn’t separated, but the Bucs play again on Thursday, so the chances of backup Mike James starting are good. Pick him up.

– WR Harry Douglas will feast for as long as Roddy White is out and maybe beyond. He’s a comfortable start for the future.

– TE Joseph Fauria is an integral part of the Lions offense from here on out, especially in the red zone. It didn’t show up in fantasy this week, but he’s a favorite target of Matt Stafford.

          – The same could be said for WR Kris Durham.

Andy Dalton has actually been playing pretty well over the last few games. He’s worth a bye week filler.

RW Fred Jackson

– The Bills like Fred Jackson in their offense more than C.J. Spiller, at least while E.J Manuel is out.

– Miami WR Brandon Gibson is worth a pickup in most leagues. Ryan Tannehill looks for him constantly.

– I just don’t have very high hopes for Lamar Miller’s fantasy prospects this year. If you can get another good game out him, you need to ship him.

Gronk is back to his old self. Start him with confidence.

          – So is Stevan Ridley.

Aaron Dobson will be a great receiver once he starts catching all those targets.

geno smith

Geno Smith loves TE Jeff Cumberland. He was a few missed catches away from a monster game.

– Looks like Bilal Powell is going to take a back seat to Chris Ivory. Get what you can for Powell while you can.

– The Eagles offense is Michael Vick’s as soon as he’s ready.

– The Dallas defense is legit. This means a lot in division where you play the mistake prone Giants, Redskins, and Eagles twice.

Terrance Williams has eclipsed Miles Austin in the Dallas offense.

Roy Helu Jr. is going to remain a force to be reckoned with in Washington. Pick him up.

– TE Jordan Reed is the new No.2 receiver in D.C.

– The Bears offense can still move without Jay Cutler. Phew.

Sam Bradford is out for the season. Ship your Rams receivers and invest in RB Zac Stacy.

– Like I said in the Garbage Grab, Mike Tolbert, not Jonathan Stewart, is the biggest bane of DeAngelo Williams’ fantasy value.

– Chargers WR Keenan Allen was a couple pass interference calls away from pay-dirt. Keep on rolling with him.

danny woodhead

– Both Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead can find room to flourish on the San Diego offense. Think Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller.

Cecil Shorts won’t go away. He’s the safest Jaguar receiver to own.

Jake Locker appears no worse for the wear after his hip injury.

Josh Gordon is going to suffer as long as Brandon Weeden goes on thinking Greg Little is a real receiving option in Cleveland.

Jordan Cameron will stay viable as Weeden’s safety blanket– which he will need a lot.

– With Randall Cobb, and now possibly Jermichael Finley out of action for the foreseeable future, WR Jarrett Boykin will remain a fixture in the Packers offense.

– Houston will survive without Matt Schaub, who was always a glorified game manager.

jamaal charles pro day

Jamaal Charles is the Kansas City offense. He should be fantasy’s top back by season’s end. If he stays healthy, which we worry about.

– The Ravens offensive line is terrible. Ray Rice isn’t going to get any help.

Trent Richardson is being surpassed by Donald Brown in early down work. You read that right. He is looking like a JAG. His fumble Sunday night won’t help his cause.

Darrius Heyward-Bey is worth a speculative add in most leagues in the aftermath of Reggie Wayne’s knee injury.

– Even in a losing effort, the entire Broncos receiving corps is fantasy viable. If not for the bye week, I would feel totally comfortable in starting all of them on my roster every week.

Ronnie Hillman can’t seem to hold onto the ball when it counts. I see an opening for Montee Ball very soon.
