But during this roller coaster fantasy football season, you are bound to have a week like last one. Here's a recap of last week's big performances and here are my Week 7 likes.
Best of Week 6
Cam Newton (QB, Carolina) – **Newton led his team to a 37-37 tie at Cincinnati behind 284 passing yards and two scores, and he added 107 rushing yards with one score.
Joe Flacco (QB, Baltimore) –I was all about Flacco last week. Flacco totaled 306 passing yards and five touchdowns, all coming in the first half.
T.Y. Hilton (WR, Indianapolis) –On Thursday Night Football, Hilton registered nine receptions for a season-high 223 yards with one score in a crucial AFC South matchup.
Tom Brady (QB, New England) –Just when everyone started questioning Brady, he goes out and hangs 361 passing yards and four scores on the Buffalo Bills, who have a pretty good defense.
Arian Foster (RB, Houston) –Foster looks like he's back to his old ways and 100% healthy. He totaled 109 rushing yards and 32 receiving yards with two scores.
Week 7 Likes:
Philip Rivers (vs. Kansas City) –The argument can be made that the Chargers are the best team in the AFC and it's largely due to Rivers. He's making all the right reads and throws. Rivers has also thrown for multiple touchdowns in five straight games.
Russell Wilson (at St. Louis) –Wilson might have played the worst game of his career last Sunday. He's primed to bounce back against a division foe. The Rams are last in the league in sacks and are struggling to even get pressure on opposing QBs.
Aaron Rodgers (vs. Carolina) –15 touchdowns to just one interception, and that lone pick came in the opener. Rodgers is just that good and the Panthers struggle to defend the pass.
DeMarco Murray (vs. N.Y. Giants) –He is the best back in the league and he proves it each and every week. He gets plenty of touches, yards and touchdowns, and there are no signs of him slowing down.
Arian Foster (at Pittsburgh) –Foster has played four games this season when healthy, and he has eclipsed the 100-yard mark in each of those four games. Pittsburgh has yet to be consistent when stopping the run.
Le'Veon Bell (vs. Houston) –Bell became the first player in team history to top the 100 yards from scrimmage mark in each of the first six games of a season. The only question is can he finally cross the goal line?
Antonio Brown (vs. Houston) –Brown has recorded at least 80 receiving yards in every game this season. He has been the most consistent receiver in the league and now he will face a questionable Texans' pass defense.
Steve Smith (vs. Atlanta) –Smith has been a great addition to the Ravens and has become a go-to for Joe Flacco. The Falcons have allowed four 100-yard games to receivers this season. Smith has seen plenty of Atlanta throughout his career.
James Jones (vs. Arizona) –Arizona struggles defending the pass. Oakland is winless, and I'm not saying they are going to win this one, but I do think Jones will make some big plays. His QB, Derek Carr, has been on fire as of late.
Jordan Cameron (at Jacksonville) –Cameron last week totaled 100+ receiving yards and one score against a quality Pittsburgh defense. Jacksonville gives up more than 70 receiving yards per game to opposing tight ends.
Martellus Bennett (vs. Miami) –Crazy stat but Bennett is second on the Bears in targets behind Matt Forte. He will continue to get looks this week versus the Dolphins.
Rob Gronkowski (vs. N.Y. Jets) –Gronk has totaled 13 receptions for 194 yards and one score over the last two games. He looks to be back to his old form, which doesn't bode well for the Jets.
Buffalo Bills (vs. Minnesota) –Buffalo has had one bad game defensively all season and that happened last week thanks to Tom Brady. They will bounce back this week against a struggling Vikings' offense.
Cleveland Browns (at Jacksonville) –Cleveland shut down the Steelers last Sunday, a team that ranked top-five in total offense. The team might not make that many splash plays on defense but you have to like their chances against rookie Blake Bortles.
Houston Texans (at Pittsburgh) –The Texans will have had 11 days to prepare for this game. J.J. Watt is a force. Jadeveon Clowney might be back. It could be a long night for the Steelers' offensive line.
Justin Tucker (vs. Atlanta) –Tucker has made multiple field goals in 4-of-6 games this season and hasn't totaled less than seven points the last five games.
Matt Prater (vs. New Orleans) –Prater missed two last week, but he's too good not to bounce back this game.
Stephen Gostkowski (vs. N.Y. Jets) –He has made at least three field goals in four games this season, including eight in the past two weeks.
