Nick Foles


Nick Foles was a top 5 QB lat week. Can he keep it up again at home against the Cowoys in week 7?





By Nate Wenneker






Nick Foles, PHI (vs. DAL) – Foles should have been top pick up on the waiver wire this week if you were in need of a fill-in QB. Dallas is allowing the most fantasy points to opposing QBs. Foles should be a solid play for Week 7.


Phillip Rives, SD (@ JAC) – As if Rivers hasn’t exceed expectations so far this season, here is another tasty match-up for him to exploit. He is facing a Jags team that is 3rd opposing QBs. Also, the Jags have only two interceptions on the season.




Joe Flacco, BAL (@ PIT) – Even with Pittsburgh struggling this season, they are pretty solid against opposing QBs, limiting QBs so far this season to only four TDs and the third fewest fantasy points.


Sam Bradford, STL (@ CAR) –If you haven’t heard, the Carolina defense is for real. They are the stingiest defense this season to opposing QBs and have eight interceptions on the season.






Brandon Jacobs, NYG (vs. MIN) – Jacobs rocked the Chicago Bears rushing defense and will look for another opportunity against the worst rushing defense in the league when the Giants face the Vikings this week. If you picked up Jacobs, this is the best week to play him.


DeAngelo Williams, CAR (vs. STL) – Williams has been a bright spot for many fantasy owners this year. He had great match-up against St. Louis this week who has given up an average of 100+ yards to opposing running backs.




Le’Von Bell, PIT (vs. BAL) – Bell looked good in his first game, scoring two TDs but didn’t have strong showing last week and this week looks even worse going against a Ravens team that has given up only one TD to opposing running backs.


Maurice Jones Drew, JAC (vs. SD) – When you think of the Charger defense, you’re not likely to be concerned, but San Diego is ranked third in allowing the fewest fantasy points to running backs. MJD may not be the best option this week.


Wide Receivers




T.Y. Hilton, IND (vs. DEN) – No Defense likes to play the Broncos, but for fantasy purposes, the wide receivers love it. Denver’s ability to pile on the points forces teams to play catch up, which means teams playing the Broncos are forced to throw the ball. While the stats maybe deceiving because of the junk time passing, the Broncos are giving up the third most fantasy points to wide receivers. Given the attention Reggie Wayne should

receive, look for Hilton to benefit this week with a lot of targets.


Brian Hartline, MIA (vs. BUF) – Hartline is a viable WR/Flex this week with Buffalo allowing the second most TDs to WRs. He hasn’t done much since the early part of season but it’s a good matchup if you’re in need.




Dwayne Bowe, KC (vs. HOU) – Bowe is getting closer and closer to droppable after a mostly disappointing season. It doesn’t look to get better against a Texan’s team who gives up the least fantasy points to WRs.


Stevie Johnson, BUF (@ MIA) – Miami is top in five least fantasy points allowed to wide receivers and Johnson's injury concerns haven’t changed since last week. Look for another option in week 7.



Tight Ends



Brandon Myers, NYG (vs. MIN) – Myers has been disappointing so far this season with a strugglingGiants offense, but Minnesota is tied for giving up the most to TDs to tight ends and could be a nice sleeper this week.


Brent Celek, PHI (vs. DAL) – If you are desperate for a tight end this week, Celek has a good match up with Dallas who is giving up the third most fantasy points to TEs.




Garrett Graham, HOU (@ KC) – Graham was a hot name on the waiver wire last week with Owen Daniels now out for several weeks. He didn’t reward owners last week and this week looks worse with Houston play KC. KC is ranked first in giving up the fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends.


Greg Olsen, CAR (vs. STL) – Olsen is probably a tight end you are starting each week, however if you have better options this week, you might want to think about it. STL is the fifth best in limiting fantasy points to tight ends so far this season.






Green Bay Packers (vs. CLE) – The Packers started off Weeks 1 and 2 with two bad fantasy performances, but in the last three games they have been a solid defense. This week they face a Browns team that is tenth in allowing fantasy points to opposing defenses.




Tampa Bay Bucs (vs. ATL) – Even with a struggling offense, the Bucs have been an above average defense. This week they face Atlanta offense that has been hit with a lot of injuries and poor start to the season. This doesn’t appear to be too bad of a match up for Tampa Bay, but keep in mind, Atlanta is giving up the second fewest fantasy to opposing defenses so far this season.
