We’re back to breakdown all of the fantasy football rankings that you need to know to win your Week 7 matchup for fantasy football!

A trade later in the day Friday shakes some things up this week, along with some key inactive players. Hopefully, you were able to race to the waiver wire to get Nick Chubb after news broke that Carlos Hyde got traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He should see something close to the role Hyde had and hopefully that means Duke Johnson gets some more touches as well. Let’s see where they fall in the running back Fantasy Football Rankings this week.

Quarterback – Fantasy Football Rankings

1. Patrick Mahomes, vs Cincinnati Bengals 

2. Matt Ryan, vs New York Giants 

3. Jared Goff, at San Francisco 49ers 

4. Tom Brady, at Chicago Bears – The New England offense is healthy and the Bears defense showed some cracks last week

5. Kirk Cousins, at New York Jets 

6. Cam Newton, at Philadelphia Eagles – The Philly defense is tough but Cam has so many ways to score points

7. Baker Mayfield, at Tampa Bay – This defense can’t stop anyone

8. Andy Dalton, at Kansas City Chiefs 

9. Drew Brees, at Baltimore Ravens 

10. Carson Wentz, vs Carolina Panthers 

11. Philip Rivers, vs Tennessee Titans – In London makes the game harder to gauge but Rivers should still be very solid

12. Matthew Stafford, at Miami Dolphins 

13. Jameis Winston, vs Cleveland Browns 

14. Joe Flacco, vs New Orleans Saints 

15. Andrew Luck, vs Buffalo Bills – The Buffalo defense has quietly been playing very well after getting hammered the first couple of weeks

16. Mitchell Trubisky, vs New England Patriots 

17. Eli Manning, at Atlanta Falcons – He can only check down to Saquon Barkley but that might be all he needs to do against Atlanta

18. Deshaun Watson, at Jacksonville Jaguars 

19. C.J. Beathard, vs Los Angeles Rams 

20. Dak Prescott, at Washington Redskins – This is about the point where you don’t really want any of these players

21. Alex Smith, vs Dallas Cowboys 

22. Marcus Mariota, vs Los Angeles Chargers

23. Brock Osweiler, vs Detroit Lions 

24. Sam Darnold, vs Minnesota Vikings 

25. Derek Anderson, at Indianapolis Colts 

Running Back – Fantasy Football Rankings

1. Todd Gurley, at San Francisco 49ers 

2. Saquon Barkley, at Atlanta Falcons – The slight be the first time all year I’ve at least considered not ranking Gurley number 1 that I can remember

3. Melvin Gordon, vs Tennessee Titans 

4. Kareem Hunt, vs Cincinnati Bengals – He’s been heating up

5. Joe Mixon, at Kansas City Chiefs 

6. Ezekiel Elliott, at Washington Redskins – They have an underrated defense but Zeke is matchup proof

7. Sony Michel, at Chicago Bears 

8. Alvin Kamara, at Baltimore Ravens – We’re going to find out if Week 5 was just a bump in the road or not

9. Tarik Cohen, vs New England Patriots 

10. Christian McCaffrey, at Philadelphia Eagles 

11. Mark Ingram, at Baltimore Ravens 

12. James White, at Chicago Bears 

13. Nick Chubb, at Tampa Bay Buccaneers – The newly crowned starter for the Browns should be able to get off and running this week

14. Latavius Murray, at New York Jets – Don’t expect a repeat of last week but the volume is going to be there

15. LeSean McCoy, at Indianapolis Colts 

16. T.J. Yeldon, vs Houston Texans 

17. Tevin Coleman, vs New York Giants 

18. Kerryon Johnson, at Miami Dolphins – I’m begging the Lions to not give most of the Theo Riddick role to Ameer Abdullah

19. Matt Breida, vs Los Angeles Rams 

20. Jordan Howard, vs New England Patriots 

21. Marlon Mack, vs Buffalo Bills 

22. Corey Clement, vs Carolina Panthers – Clement should be fully healthy now and I think he leads the Philly committee if he is

23. Adrian Peterson, vs Dallas Cowboys 

24. Peyton Barber, vs Cleveland Browns – The Browns haven’t been too tough on running backs and Barber is the clear lead dog if last week was any indication

25. Duke Johnson, at Tampa Bay Buccaneers 

26. Kenyan Drake, vs Detroit Lions – It’s a shame there’s no confidence to play him because the matchup is incredible

27. Alex Collins, vs New Orleans Saints 

28. Wendell Smallwood, vs Carolina Panthers 

29. Frank Gore, vs Detroit Lions – I wouldn’t be shocked if Gore scored more fantasy points in this spot

30. Austin Ekeler, vs Tennessee Titans 

31. Ito Smith, vs New York Giants 

32. Bilal Powell, vs Minnesota Vikings 

33. Chris Thompson, vs Dallas Cowboys 

34. Dion Lewis, vs Los Angeles Chargers 

35. Isaiah Crowell, vs Minnesota Vikings 

Wide Receiver – Fantasy Football Rankings

1. Adam Thielen, at New York Jets

2. Tyreek Hill, vs Cincinnati Bengals 

3. A.J. Green, at Kansas City Chiefs 

4. Odell Beckham, Jr., at Atlanta Falcons – If Beckham and company can’t get it done here, it’ll be time to panic

5. Julio Jones, vs New York Giants – Lots of top flight receivers facing off this week

6. Robert Woods, at San Francisco 49ers 

7. Michael Thomas, at Baltimore Ravens 

8. Keenan Allen, vs Tennessee Titans 

9. DeAndre Hopkins, at Jacksonville Jaguars – The Jaguars defense hasn’t been quite what we though in some spots

10. Brandin Cooks, at San Francisco 49ers 

11. Mike Evans, vs Cleveland Browns – Evans has been quiet the past couple of games

12. Jarvis Landry, at Tampa Bay Buccaneers 

13. Stefon Diggs, at New York Jets – Keep an eye on the wind factor in this game

14. Golden Tate, at Miami Dolphins – He should see the least of Xavien Howard

15. Tyler Boyd, at Kansas City Chiefs 

16. John Brown, vs New Orleans Saints 

17. Alshon Jeffery, vs Carolina Panthers 

18. Josh Gordon, at Chicago Bears – The breakout game is coming sooner than later

19. Devin Funchess, at Philadelphia Eagles 

20. Julian Edelman, at Chicago Bears 

21. Kenny Golladay, at Miami Dolphins 

22. Chris Godwin, vs Cleveland Browns – He just keeps getting work in the red zone

23. Sterling Shepard, at Atlanta Falcons – Despite the glorious matchup, it’s hard to bank on Eli keeping both receivers afloat

24. Allen Robinson, vs New England Patriots 

25. Michael Crabtree, vs New Orleans Saints 

26. Marvin Jones, at Miami Dolphins 

27. Jermaine Kearse, vs Minnesota Vikings – Someone has to catch the ball

28. Corey Davis, vs Los Angeles Chargers – If Marcus Mariota isn’t getting sacked, Davis likely has to deal with Casey Hayward

29. Willie Snead, vs New Orleans Saints – Revenge!!!

30. Taylor Gabriel, vs New England Patriots 

31. T.Y. Hilton, vs Buffalo Bills – Welcome back to the lineup, T.Y. and good luck with Tre’Davious White on the other side

32. Sammy Watkins, vs Cincinnati Bengals 

33. Calvin Ridley, vs New York Giants 

34. DeSean Jackson, vs Cleveland Browns

Tight End – Fantasy Football Rankings

1. Travis Kelce, vs Cincinnati Bengals – He’s been my TE1 for a couple of weeks now

2. Zach Ertz, vs Carolina Panthers – He’s just a receiver masquerading as a tight end

3. Rob Gronkowski, at Chicago Bears – It’s really been a disappointing season for Gronk and the offense has even more mouths to feed than it did two weeks ago

4. David Njoku, at Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Much like the rest of the passing game, Njoku couldn’t draw a better matchup

5. George Kittle, vs Los Angeles Rams – The 49ers are going to have to score a bunch of points in this one and kittle should get his after a quiet week last week

6. Austin Hooper, vs New York Giants – Can the young tight end on the rise make it three straight weeks?

7. C.J. Uzomah, at Kansas City Chiefs – He’s the lone tight end for this team in a game that should be high scoring

8. Eric Eborn, vs Buffalo Bills – Will the return of Hilton make any difference for Ebron?

9. Trey Burton, vs New England Patriots – He’s been finding the end zone but not doing much else lately

10. O.J. Howard, vs Cleveland Browns – I’m not sure how anyone stops this guy

11. Jordan Reed, vs Dallas Cowboys – It’s been a very rough couple of weeks for Reed but it’s hard to bench him

12. Kyle Rudolph, at New York Jets – It’s hard to satisfy two receivers and a tight end every single week

14.  Greg Olsen, at Philadelphia Eagles – He played every snap but didn’t do a ton last week

15. Cameron Brate, vs Cleveland Browns – Even a single touchdown catch from Jameis Winston like last week can make him viable
