Fantasy Football Week 7: Start’em / Sit’em

4 of 4

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports


Roddy White @BAL (76%,13) – Only averaging 5 targets per game over the last two and looks old to me. I’m trying to trade White in the two leagues I have him.

Torrey Smith ATL (47%, 10) – Don’t let last weeks 2 TD game fool you. Smith doesn’t get to play the Bucs every week. The Falcons D isn’t much better, but after 5 bad weeks, I’m not starting Smith because of 1 good one.

Kendall Wright @WAS (39%, 12) – Got only 1 target from Charlie Whitehurst last week. If Jake Locker starts then disregard this recommendation, but if its Whitehurst again then bench all Titan receivers. He’s not good.

Cordarrelle Patterson @BUF (35%, 9) – No way you can start Patterson after 5 consecutive weeks of under 10 points and a lingering hip injury. I need to see at least 7-8 targets per game before I even consider putting him in my lineup. I actually dropped Patterson in two short-bench leagues this week.


Dwayne Allen CIN (39%,10) – Is only averaging 4.5 targets per game which isn’t enough to be a viable fantasy starter unless he finds the end zone every week. His 4 TDs are impressive, but I try to avoid TD dependent players.

Jared Cook SEA (20%,10) – I just don’t trust him. Cook has been inconsistent his whole career and I don’t think the Rams are going to move the ball much this week against the Seahawks.
