Last week was a decent one for my fantasy studs as Steve Breaston had a big game and Joseph Addai didn’t do much against the Ravens defense before he got injured. The last few weeks have been good for me though and hopefully it will continue this week. Here are my week 7 fantasy studs.
QB: Matt Schaub vs Lions: Schaub has done very well his last couple games and that shouldn’t change against the Lions defense. Schaub looks like he is starting to connect with Andre Johnson again which will really help his value considering Johnson is one of the best receivers in the league. Schaub won’t be the only one benefiting from the matchup as Steve Slaton and Owen Daniels are also good starts this week. Expect around 270 yards and 3 touchdowns.
RB: Mewelde Moore vs Bengals: With Willie Parker out, Moore will be getting the majority of carries this week against a struggling Bengals defense. Moore is available in most leagues and could do very well in points per reception leagues. Expect around 110 total yards and a touchdown.
WR: Bernard Berrian vs Bears: Surprisingly, Berrian isn’t owned in some leagues but has been one of the best fantasy receivers over the last couple of weeks. Look for Berrian to have another big game against his former team. Expect around 90 yards and a touchdown.
TE: Dustin Keller vs Raiders: Keller has only caught 6 passes this year but 2 of them have been for touchdowns. He may not put up big numbers but he could have a solid week as the Jets will pass the ball early and often against the Raiders. Expect around 30 yards and a touchdown.
K: Matt Bryant vs Seahawks: Bryant has been very consistent so far this year and with the way the Seahawks defense is playing, he could have a very good fantasy game. Expect around 3 field goals and 3 extra points.
Def: Dolphins vs Ravens: The Dolphins defense has played OK this year but if the Ravens offense plays anything like last week, the Dolphins could be in for a big day. Expect around 3 sacks and 2 interceptions.
Star to sit: Julius Jones vs Buccaneers: Jones has been pretty productive this year but could struggle against a Bucs defense that ranks 9th in the league against the run. If you have other options this week, it might be worth considering starting them over Jones.
