Week 7 PPR Rankings: Risers and Fallers
At quarterback, Russell Wilson returns from a bye week and jumps back into to the top overall spot at the position. He faces off against a solid Cardinals defense, but there aren’t many teams out there who can stop this high-flying attack. Kyler Murray and Matthew Stafford are huge risers this week.
Murray is the QB2 on the week, as he is almost assured a shoot out against the aforementioned Wilson and the Seahawks. Stafford goes against a Falcons defense who has given up the most points to quarterbacks on the year.
Falling at quarterback is Baker Mayfield, who is only ranked ahead of the Jets quarterback situation. Mayfield just simply isn’t getting it done, and his job could be in jeopardy after being pulled in Week 6.
It is really starting to become clear that there are only a few really good options week in and week out at running back. Outside of the top eight or nine, it starts to become 100% dependent on high-volume, low-efficiency players. D’Andre Swift takes a huge bump after his impressive Week 6 showing, as he is up to the RB20 for our Week 7 PPR rankings.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire starts his initial fall with the acquisition of Le’Veon Bell. He is down to the RB13, and will likely continue trending down if Bell fills the pass-catching and goal-line role he will likely see. Edwards-Helaire has been excellent in the open field this year but just hasn’t got the job done in the red zone.
Kenny Golladay is up to the overall WR2 in the Week 7 PPR rankings. He draws the Falcons, and he’s been excellent in the limited games he has played. Julio Jones returns to WR1 status after he finally looked healthy for the first time since Week 1. Michael Thomas should be back, and he starts off as the WR4 on the week.
The Rams wide receiver duo of Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp fall down to low-end WR2 status, as the volatile Rams offense faces off against a tough Chicago Bears defense on Monday night.
Last week, I had Travis Kelce as the TE3, I will not make that mistake again, as he comes in as the top overall option. Rob Gronkowski is all the way up to the TE8, as he drew eight targets in Week 6, and looks like he could be rounding into form in the second half of the year.
