Fantasy Savvy Player Rankings Week 7

1.    Drew Brees (vs CLE)
2.    Phillip Rivers (vs NE)
3.    Aaron Rodgers (vs MIN)
4.    Kyle Orton (vs OAK)
5.    Tony Romo (vs NYG)
6.    Joe Flacco (vs BUF)– Playing the Bills, they are pretty good against the pass(10th) but Flacco is a beast at home and the Bills have zero pass rush.
7.    Tom Brady (@SD)
8.    Jay Cutler (vs WAS)-Going up against the 31st ranked pass defense, is in for a big game at home.
9.    Ben Roethlisberger (@MIA)
10.    Eli Manning (@DAL)– Has had big games in the past against the Cowboys, things won’t change this week.
11.    Matt Cassel (vs JAC)-Second straight week he gets a BAD defense, and could put up big numbers once again, difference is the Chiefs will win this one.
12.    Kevin Kolb (@TEN)
13.    Donavan McNabb (@CHI)
14.    Matt Ryan (vs CIN)
15.    Brett Favre (@GB)-The Packers will have Al Harris back this week, but won’t be 100% quite yet, so Favre could have a good day.
16.    Carson Palmer (@ ATL)
17.    Vince Young (vs PHI)-Assuming he plays, if not Kerry Collins will start and would only be a starter in 2QB leagues.
18.    Matt Hasselback (vs ARI)
19.    Josh Freeman (vs STL)-Posted 15+ fantasy points in 4 out of 5 games, this will be the 5th.
20.    Chad Henne (vs PIT)-Pit has a great run defense but a suspect pass defense, and Henne puts up big numbers at home.
21.    Max Hall (@SEA)-The rookie makes his second start, and Seattle is a tough place to play, but they can be passed on.
22.    Alex Smith (@CAR)
23.    Sam Bradford (@TB)
24.    Colt McCoy (@NO)-Posted solid numbers on the road last week in Pittsburgh, could do the same again this week.
25.    Matt Moore (vs SF)
26.    Ryan Fitzpatrick (@BAL)
27.    Raiders QB (@DEN)- Could be Campbell, Gradkowski or Boller, Gradkowski would be the only viable starter out of this group.
28.    Jaguars QB (@KC)-Most likely will be Todd Bouman and he has no value, and the receiving corps has little to no value as well.

1.   Roddy White (vs CIN)

3.    Miles Austin (vs NYG)
4.    Anquan Boldin (vs BUF)
5.    Marques Colston (vs CLE)-Will score his first TD this week, I guarantee it. He’s in for a big day.
6.    Brandon Marshall (vs PIT)
7.    Greg Jennings (vs MIN)-Packers said going into last week he would get more involved, and boy did he (6 catches 133 yards and a TD). Look for more of the same this week.
8.    Randy Moss (@ GB)
9.    Hakeem Nicks (@DAL)
10.    Jeremy Maclin (@TEN)-No Desean Jackson this week, he’ll be Kolb’s main target.
11.    Santana Moss (@CHI)
12.    Terrell Owens (@ATL)
13.    Mike Wallace (@MIA)-Big play threat, has Big Ben back. He’ll have at least one long TD catch, with a few more long receptions a swell. High end WR2 this week.
14.    Michael Crabtree (@CAR)- Has scored in two straight, and is starting to become the go to guy.
15.    Dwayne Bowe (@JAC)-Top WR scorer last week, will have another big game this week against another bad pass defense.
16.    Percy Harvin (@GB)
17.    Brandon Lloyd (vs OAK)-Tough matchup with Nnamdi Asomugha, but has produced against other worthy opponents so won’t drop him too far but not a #1 option this week.
18.    Steve Smith(CAR)-(vs SF)-Back already from ankle injury, Matt Moore back under center.
19.    Wes Welker (@SD)
20.    Mike Williams(TB)-(vs STL)
21.    Johnny Knox (vs WAS)- The Redskins are 31st against the pass, is in for a pretty solid day.
22.    Chad OchoCinco (@ATL)
23.    Steve Smith(NYG)-(@DAL)
24.    Hines Ward (@MIA)
25.    Donald Driver (vs MIN)
26.    Mike Williams(SEA)-(vs ARI)-10 catches for 123 yards, has no competition for #1 spot and is Hasselbacks favorite target, health and mentality is the only thing that can hold this kid back
27.    Kenny Britt (vs PHI)-Scored in 4 straight games, if Kerry Collins gets the start, bump him down 10 spots.
28.    Deion Branch (@SD)
29.    Patrick Crayton (vs NE)-Possibly no Floyd, Naanee or Gates so could see a boatload of targets.
30.    Roy Williams (vs NYG)
31.    Jabar Gaffney (vs OAK)
32.    Derrick Mason (vs BUF)
33.    Davone Bess (vs PIT)
34.    Danario Alexander (@TB)- Had a big game in his debut, could be in for another one as he develops a solid relationship with QB Sam Bradford.
35.    Buster Davis (vs NE)-Patriots rank 29th vs the pass and with Floyd and Naanee banged up, could put up solid numbers.
36.    Lance Moore (vs CLE)
37.    Steve Breaston (@SEA)-Expected back from injury which kept him out last two weeks, solid flex play against terrible Seahawks pass defense.
38.    Lee Evans (@ BAL)
39.    Dez Bryant (vs NYG)
40.    Danny Amendola (@TB)
41.    Anthony Armstrong (@CHI)
42.    Mike Thomas (@KC)-This ranking is based on Todd Bouman starting, obviously if Garrard plays, Thomas moves up about 7-8 spots.
43.    Robert Meachem (vs CLE)-Plays much better on the road than at home, but has put up double-digit points last two weeks.
44.    Devin Aromashadu (vs WAS)-Slowly working back into the Bears good graces, could have a big time game against terrible Redskin pass defense.
45.    DeMaryius Thomas (vs OAK)
46.    Stevie Johnson (@BAL)
47.    Mario Manningham (@DAL)
48.    Nate Washington (vs PHI)
49.    Deon Butler (vs ARI)
50.    Jason Avant (@ TEN)-The number two with Desean Jackson out, talented receiver who has some upside this week.
51.    James Jones (vs MIN)
52.    Legedu Naanee (vs NE)-If he plays, move him up about 10 spots.
53.    Louis Murphy (@ DEN)
54.    Golden Tate (vs ARI)
55.    Mike Sims-Walker (@KC)-Has little value without Garrard
56.    Michael Jenkins (vs BUF)
57.    Devin Hester (vs WAS)
58.    Devery Henderson (vs CLE)
59.    Brian Hartline (vs PIT)
60.    Chansi Stuckey (@ NO)-With Massaquoi and Cribbs likely out with concussions, Stuckey could be the benefactor.
