Fantasy Football Week 7 Start Rankings

October 21, 2009 | Thyrl Nelson

Week 6 was a big one for offense, despite a number of noteworthy byes. Hopefully some of that scoring mojo will continue into week 7, as there are 6 byes on tap for this week’s action. The number of gigantic week 6 performances served to boost a lot of teams, while on the other side of that coin, a number of owners likely saw huge efforts wasted in losing causes too.

 

There was a big shakeup in the WNST Fantasy football rankings last week too, as week 6 opened the door for the top 5 scoring performances of the season so far. Congrats to Ravenators, who currently sit in first place with 209 points, followed by Goobirds in 2nd with 195 points, and RavenCanes moved into 3rd place with 190 points.

 

Remember that the money goes to the highest single week scorers, so that means that you still have 11 chances left to submit a winning lineup. And by now, I’m guessing that a lot of you are feeling let down by the teams that you drafted. This is a nice way to get back the excitement of competitive fantasy football, as each week provides you with a fresh opportunity to win real money.

 

So without further ado, here are the week 7 Fantasy Flavor Formulary Rankings. The results are generated mathematically using 2 parts player performance, and one-part defensive expectations, with adjustments made for injuries, anomalies and changes in playing time. The formulary numbers are listed in parentheses behind each player, with the lower numbers being better and a lowest possible number of 3.

 

As always, keep an eye on the injury reports, good luck, and remember to have fun. If you aren’t having fun playing fantasy football, you’re simply doing it wrong.
