Russell Wilson still remains the top-scoring quarterback this year, but Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson are not far behind. For the past three weeks, Patrick Mahomes has regressed from his dominant performances to start the season. In this article, I will show my quarterback rankings for Week 7. There are a few lower-tier quarterbacks with good matchups that you might want to look out for this week if you find your quarterback on a bye this week. There are plenty of good options to pick up this week.

New Top Dog

For the first week, I’m taking Patrick Mahomes out of my number one position. This is the third week in a row where he has scored below his projection. He threw his first interception of the season last week against the Texans and also fumbled the ball. He threw for a season-low 273 yards but did have 3 touchdowns to help boost his point total. He faces the Broncos this week who possess one of the top pass defenses in the league which is why I have moved him down a spot this week. Replacing him is Lamar Jackson who I’ve had a number 2 for a while. Jackson has been the best dual-threat quarterback in the league and his ability to run makes his fantasy value skyrocket. Despite having no passing touchdowns, he scored as one of the top quarterbacks last week due to his rushing. He rushed for 152 yards with a touchdown. Having a quarterback like this is basically a cheat code for fantasy owners.

Big Week 6

Matt Ryan went off against the Cardinals but still managed to lose because of how bad the Falcons’ defense is. Ryan threw for 356 yards with 4 touchdowns. This marks his second week in a row for exceeding projections. The Cardinals have had one of the worst pass defenses in the league this year, and Ryan took full advantage of that fact. This week he faces a tougher challenge against the Rams. The Rams rank as an above-average pass defense who managed to keep Jimmy Garoppolo in check last week despite the Rams’ offense looking terrible. I think Ryan will continue his dominance with all of his top targets remaining healthy.

Good Matchups

Josh Allen should have a great game this week. The Dolphins have allowed just under 3 passing touchdowns per game this season to go with 270.2 yards per game. He also is fully capable of using his legs which makes him an even more solid option this week. The Dolphins are also terrible at stopping the run (they’re just a bad defense in general). The only problem with Josh Allen is the options he has to throw to. The Bills don’t have any elite tier receivers which holds Allen back slightly, but regardless, he will still have a crazy game this week. Daniel Jones is another quarterback in a favorable matchup. The status of Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram are still up in the air which would hurt Jones’s production if they sit out, but Golden Tate is a solid option. The return of Saquon Barkley is also possible this week which would be amazing for the Giants. They have had a mess at the running back position which hasn’t helped Jones at all. The Cardinals have a terrible pass defense and have given up the most passing touchdowns in the NFL. I’d expect three touchdowns for Daniel Jones this week.

Bad Matchups

Philip Rivers faces a tough matchup against the Titans’ defense this week. They have allowed just 217.3 passing yards per game on average with 8 total passing touchdowns in 6 games. Just last week they held Joe Flacco to 177 yards and no touchdowns. Rivers has Hunter Henry back and used him like crazy last week. His return will make this matchup a lot better since the only little weakness in the Titans’ defense is guarding tight ends. Carson Wentz also has a tougher matchup this week against the Cowboys. The Cowboys have had one of the easier schedules this season so far, but they have looked against them nonetheless. They have held opposing quarterbacks to under one touchdown per game with only 238 yards per game. It will hurt Wentz more if DeSean Jackson has to miss another week with his abdomen injury. I would keep an eye on that when deciding to start Wentz this week.
