QB List’s Fantasy Football Rankings: Week 7

Erik Smith and Ryan Heath release their PPR fantasy football rankings for Week 7.

Ryan Heath’s WR Rankings

 

  • I made fun of DeAndre Hopkins drafters plenty this offseason, but he all of a sudden looks like an enticing play with Marquise Brown likely out for the season and a large number of receivers on bye this week. I still prefer Rondale Moore, who ranks 29th among receivers in OPPO per game and is coming off back-to-back games with at least eight targets. He has yet to produce very much, but keep the faith, as the usage suggests he’ll put it together eventually.
  • Speaking of short slot receivers, Wan’Dale Robinson has ascended the rankings far too quickly. Though he ran just 11 of 32 routes in his first game back from injury, Daniel Bellinger was the only Giant with more targets Sunday. Wan’Dale was targeted on an elite 36% of his routes. If he plays full time this week, he easily projects as a top-36 option. Let’s not forget his second round draft capital and dominant production profile in the SEC.
  • 21 dropbacks seems to be about what we can expect out of the Jets if they aren’t forced to throw. The spread against the Broncos this week is only 2 points, so it’s tough to rank any Jets receiver inside the top 36 with such limited projected volume. Garrett Wilson is the best flyer of the three, while Elijah Moore is looking very droppable even in 12-team leagues.
  • Seattle @ Los Angeles is the only game with an over/under above 50 this week. Both offenses are coming off down weeks, but it’s hard not to rank all four of Keenan AllenMike WilliamsD.K. Metcalf, and Tyler Lockett as locked in must-starts. The Chargers and Seahawks rank 4th and 11th (respectively) in pass rate over expected this season, so there is legitimate shootout potential here.
