Week 7: Top Performers of the Week

  • With Week 7 in the books, it’s time to take a look at the fantasy options who made their GMs scream with joy as they watched the points roll in. This article is not to help with waiver wire pickups, but rather just to give gold stars to the top performers of the week. To find our waiver wire column, click here. If you are looking for some buy-lows, sell-highs, sell-lows or buy-lows you can find that here.

    All stats are based on PPR scoring.


    Joe Burrow, Bengals

    39.24 Fantasy Points, QB1

    34-for-42, 481 passing yards & three touchdowns, three carries for 20 yards & one touchdown

    Burrow has absolutely turned it around for the Bengals since they went to a shotgun-heavy approach and the rushing touchdown was the cherry on the top that allowed him to take the top spot over the next guy. For a QB who doesn’t do much on the ground to be this explosive for fantasy is very difficult, but that’s just who this guy is. Start him with confidence every week moving forward and anyone who bought low after the first few disappointing performances with a revamped offensive line that had to work out the kinks should be very pleased with themselves.


    Daniel Jones, Giants

    30.48 Fantasy Points, QB2

    19-for-30, 202 passing yards & one touchdown, 11 carries for 107 yards & one touchdown


    With a matchup vs. a Seahawks team that has surrendered a lot of points throughout the year, Jones makes for a very reasonable start in single QB leagues because of the rushing ability he brings to the table. He’s not as safe of an option as the other rushing QBs out there, but he deserved a shout-out with his best QB finish of the season for fantasy. Anyone who pivoted to Jones that had either Josh Allen or Jalen Hurts on bye didn’t even miss a beat.
