Week 7 Quarterback (QB) Ranks and Analysis – Fantasy Football 2013

Another week in the books, another frustrating week for fantasy QB owners.  Brady led the Patriots to victory, but put up just 14 fantasy points in standard scoring leagues, while guys like Mike Glennon of the Bucs and Thad Lewis of the Bills both went for over 20.  This has certainly been a crazy season for quarterbacks, and as you will see from the week 7 rankings, there has been quite a shakeup at the top since week 1.

Feel free to post all comments and questions below, I respond to all of our readers.  If you want multiple opinions on who you should start in week 7, join us in the forums as we feature one of the fastest growing fantasy sports communities online today.

Week 7 Quarterback (QB) Ranks and Analysis

Rank Player Team Analysis AVG PPG Week 7
1 Peyton Manning DEN Manning is mortal?  Who knew!  13 fantasy points in week 6 against one of the league’s worst defenses was a head scratcher, but you can be sure he will get up for this game against his former team 28.16 @IND
2 Andrew Luck IND Luck was a victim of the Charger’s playing the ball control game in week 6.  Week 7? the Broncos don’t know how to play that game, they simply push the pedal to the floor and go a mile a minute.  Luck and the Colts will have to throw to keep up 17.21 DEN
3 Jay Cutler CHI Cutler has been one of the top fantasy QB’s this season thanks to the Bears’ new offense. Washington secondary should keep the points coming in 18.07 @WSH
4 Cam Newton CAR   19.28 STL
5 Tony Romo DAL The real culprit in Romo’s poor fantasy output in week 6 was Dwayne Harris and the DST.  The Cowboys were able to manage the clock, and Romo was removed from the equation.  Week 7 is another solid matchup for Romo, he remains a QB1 20.02 @PHI
6 Philip Rivers SD Good matchup, might see a heavy dose of run game again 19.80 @JAC
7 Aaron Rodgers GB Could be a tough week if both Cobb and Jones are out…, but this is still Aaron Rodgers 20.83 CLE
8 Matthew Stafford DET   19.03 CIN
9 Matt Ryan ATL Will the loss of Julio significantly alter the Falcons offense?  Only time will tell 19.83 TB
10 Robert Griffin III WAS Good to see the read option back in play against the Cowboys.  RG3 is a borderline QB1 play in week 7 16.56 CHI
11 Russell Wilson SEA   16.26 @ARI
12 Andy Dalton CIN   14.18 @DET
13 Nick Foles PHI 30 fantasy points in week 6.  Juicy matchup with Dallas in week 7.  Foles is rapidly moving up the QB ranks in Chip Kelly’s fast paced offense 17.33 DAL
14 Eli Manning NYG   12.37 MIN
15 Ryan Tannehill MIA   17.46 BUF
16 Sam Bradford STL Carolina is one of the top defenses against opposing QB’s this season, matchup isn’t as juicy as owners might believe 17.71 @CAR
17 Tom Brady NE Yet another sub-par Brady performance in week 6.  Remains a QB2.. Can Gronk save this season? 13.75 @NYJ
18 Alex Smith KC   15.70 HOU
19 Colin Kaepernick SF Still waiting for Kaep to perform on the road until he can rejoin the QB1 discussion.  In his 2 road games (@SEA, @STL) Kaepernick threw for 127 and 167 yards respesctively.. Oh, and the titans are a top 10 defense against fantasy QB’s this season 13.34 @TEN
20 Joe Flacco BAL   13.43 @PIT
21 Mike Glennon TB Just keep feeding Vincent Jackson, it’s one of the few recipes for fantasy success for Glennon and his few owners 12.27 @ATL
22 Brandon Weeden CLE   14.95 @GB
23 Josh Freeman MIN Cassel out, Freeman in.  Nice matchup against the Giants, but Freeman is new to the offense, and Adrian Peterson should be able to handle a heavy workload 8.28 @NYG
24 Thaddeus Lewis BUF Jeff Tuel or Matt Flynn may end up making the start as Lewis has been diagnosed with a mid-foot sprain 22.34 @MIA
25 Chad Henne JAC Averaging just 9 fantasy points per game, disappointing performance in week 6.  Arrow down 9.37 SD
26 Ben Roethlisberger PIT   13.64 BAL
27 Geno Smith NYJ   13.17 NE
28 Carson Palmer ARI   10.57 SEA
29 Ryan Fitzpatrick TEN   11.71 SF
30 Case Keenum HOU Keenum was named surprise starter.  Surprise! Enjoy the NFL’s top defense this year, Case 0 @KC
BYE Drew Brees NO   26.78 BYE
BYE Terrelle Pryor OAK   16.27 BYE
INJ Michael Vick PHI Likely to sit out week 6 – Hamstring 20.38 DAL
INJ Jake Locker TEN Should be back around week 9-11 17.16 SF
INJ E.J. Manuel BUF Should be out at least 6 weeks (Putting his return around week 11) 13.81 @MIA
INJ Blaine Gabbert JAC Questionable for week 6 (Hamstring) 4.15 SD
INJ Brian Hoyer CLE Out for season   @GB
