Week 7 – This week in Fantasy Football featured a lot of games with a lot of talent, including the Super Bowl 51 rematch that New England won easily, 23-7. Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense sputtered again, but Brady, James White and Chris Hogan were the rick for a Pats win. The Hundley show began in Green Bay, but the Saints, who on a tear since trading Peterson got a win in Lambeau field.
The biggest surprise of the weekend was the Thursday Night Game, where the Raiders beat the Chiefs 31-30 on a final play touchdown by Michael Crabtree. The quick healing of Carr was surprising, but his 400 yards and 3 touchdowns make it clear he is ready to go. After 5 straight weeks of duds for Amari Cooper, his 210 yards and two touchdowns added up to 44 fantasy points, and a resurgence of his season.
Carson Palmer went down with a broken arm, and the LA Rams coasted to a 33-0 shutout win against the Cardinals. Greg Zurelein’s 4 field goals helped his fantasy owners, with 17 on the day. And Todd Gurley’s 100 yard day, and a TD helps him get back on track after an off week 6.
Ezekiel Elliot was a monster this weekend against the San Francisco 49ers, gashing them for 220 total yards and three touchdowns. 40.9 big fantasy points.
After a few bad weeks, the Steelers look to be back after two good wins in a row, and this weeks win against the Bengals, a division opponent puts their record at 5-2. LeVeon Bell was a workhorse, rushing the ball 35 times for 135 yards. Antonio Brown got his usual TD, and the offense is rolling on all cylinders.
