Matt Ryan – IND
Week 6 stats: 389 YDS, 3 TD, 27.16 PPR points
Week 7 matchup: @ TEN
Matt Ryan finally had a breakout day in the Colts’ high scoring win over the Jacksonville Jaguars last week. With Jonathan Taylor likely to return, and Ryan finding his footing in the offense, he could be a solid plug-in this week. Furthermore, the Titans offer a favorable matchup, as they are currently ranked 28th against quarterbacks in fantasy. If that was not enough, Ryan put up 356 yards and two touchdowns on the Titans the last time they faced off, and he had not even settled into the offense at that point. With the Colts offensive line improving, and stars getting healthy, things are looking up for Matty Ice.
Aaron Rodgers – GB
Week 6 stats: 246 YDS, 1 TD, 1 FUM, 11.84 PPR points
Week 7 matchup: @ WSH
Aaron Rodgers has been a shell of himself through six weeks, averaging a paltry 13.5 fantasy points per game. However, the back-to-back MVP will get a favorable matchup this week, as he faces off against the Washington Commanders secondary, which ranks 25th against quarterbacks this year. Managers might be tempted to bench Rodgers, who has not scored more than 16 points in a single game this year. However, after a string of difficult defensive matchups, the Commanders offer a good ‘get right’ matchup for Rodgers and the struggling Packers offense.
BYE WEEKS: Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts, Matthew Stafford, Kirk Cousins
Justin Fields – QB
Week 6 stats: 190 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT, 12 CAR, 88 YDS, 18.4 PPR points
Week 7 matchup: @ NE
Justin Fields has been a surprisingly reliable fantasy QB for the last two weeks, scoring 17 and 18 points, respectively. However, Fields’ on-field play has looked drastically worse than his fantasy numbers would indicate. Fields does have solid upside as a runner, but do not expect defensive mastermind Bill Bellicheck to make it easy for the young quarterback in Foxborough.
Daniel Jones – NYG
Week 6 stats: 173 YDS, 2 TD, 1 FUM, 6 CAR, 6 YDS, 13.52 PPR points
Week 7 matchup: @ JAX
In contrast to Justin Fields, Daniel Jones has looked very good for the Giants this year, but his fantasy numbers have not reflected that on-field success. Jones has been a solid game manager for the 5-1 G-Men, and they have tried to get him involved in the run game as well. However, this offense ultimately runs through Saquon Barkely, who is really the only viable fantasy option the Giants have.
