Bye week hell is upon us. The Packers, Steelers, Seahawks, and Raiders get to rest this week, which means a lot of fantasy teams will be without their studs for Week 7. This is an opportunity for the underdogs to rise up and secure a victory. Attack the studless teams while you can! Use my Week 7 wide receiver rankings to help storm your opponent's castle.
The banged up Green Bay offense runs through Davante Adams. After a slow start against the 49ers, Adams hoisted fantasy teams up on his shoulders and carried them to victory with 10 receptions for 132 yards and 2 touchdowns. His 16 targets was the most in Week 6, and Adams is now behind only Adam Thielen and Antonio Brown on the season.
Speaking of, Adam Thielen continues to be the most reliable receiver in fantasy football. His 15 targets last week made him the only receiver to notch double digit targets in every game this season. Barring injury, Thielen likely finishes the year as a Top 3 wideout.
Brock Osweiler likes his shallow throws, which explains why Danny Amendola saw 11 targets. So long as Ryan Tannehill is sidelined, Amendola makes a decent volume-based flex option.
The same cannot be said for Cole Beasley, who also saw 11 targets this past week to the tune of 9 receptions, 101 yards, and 2 TDs. Against Jacksonville. There's no quarterback switch to explain Beasley's monster outing, likely making it a mirage. Even if your point totals have dried up lately, look for water elsewhere.
Just to demonstrate how utterly indecipherable the Cleveland Browns have become for fantasy owners, Damion Ratley had 8 targets against the Chargers. "Who is Damion Ratley?" you ask. Exactly. The guy literally had ZERO targets going into that game. Filling in for the injured Rashard Riggins, it's fair to wonder whether Ratley slips back into the shadows in the coming weeks.
