It was a fun week of football with some massive point totals. Some guys planted their flag, while others took steps back. Here are my takeaways from Week 7.
Melvin Gordon is the second best player in fantasy- He’s not Todd Gurley, but he’s getting close. Gordon’s involvement in the passing game is staggering, and the Chargers offense should continue to give him plenty of opportunities for touchdowns. If someone is looking to sell high on Gordon, you need to take advantage of that. I don’t see him going away any time soon.
Marlon Mack is must own- The Colts’ offense is going to be in a lot of high-scoring games, and Mack is going to get all of the early down work if he’s healthy. He looked fantastic on Sunday, and this could be just the beginning. Mack is going to be in your lineup every single week if he remains healthy.
The Raiders are really bad- I honestly don’t know what to do here. Don’t drop Amari Cooper or Marshawn Lynch, but I wouldn’t feel good about playing them either. Other than Cooper and Lynch, I’m fine with letting anyone else go.
Mike Evans could be in trouble- Remember Mike Evans the bust? Everyone forgot all about it during the Ryan Fitzpatrick stint. Now that Jameis Winston has returned, Evans may be heading back in the bust direction. I’m not saying you should go out and sell, but listening to offers or putting out some feelers doesn’t hurt. If you could turn him into Odell Beckham, I would easily do that.
Tyreek Hill will be frustrating- Don’t get me wrong, Hill will get his numbers. He will likely finish in the top 12. However, the way he gets there will be extremely frustrating. There will be weeks like last week where he literally carries your team. But there will also be weeks where he does nothing. Boom or bust players can be frustrating. This is a great sell high opportunity if you choose.
