Week 7 is just about in the books with just tonight’s Monday Night Football clash between the Vikings and Giants left to finish your victory or complete your defeat. This week felt like whichever fantasy owner had the healthiest team got the W since so many players left early due to injury.
Every week, there are players who step up, let their owners down, and turn in surprising performances. In this post, we’ll look at the studs, duds, and surprises from each of the week 7 games starting with the Thursday Night game.
Studs: Russell Wilson finished with his biggest game in weeks throwing for 235 yards and three scored to three different receivers. He added 29 yards on the ground, but did lose two fumbles. Overall, he turned in a QB1-type performance and got Seattle a tough divisional road win. Also with solid games: Marshawn Lynch, Michael Floyd.
Duds: Larry Fitzgerald had just two catches for 17 yards and Andre Ellington finished with just 13 total yards on five touches. The Seahawks defense was a bad matchup, and it showed across the Cardinals numbers.
Surprises: Rob Housler the Cardinals TE who is coming back from injury had the most catches for Arizona with seven going for 53 yards. Arizona throws the ball often enough to make Housler worth owning if he develops into a bigger role for Carson Palmer. On the other side of the field, Zach Miller also made a successful return with five catches for 40 yards and a touchdown.
