Everybody loves to dip ‘em, but these Nuggets are tasty enough to enjoy just the way they are.
After a wacky week six during which a host of nobodies scavenged fantasy points week seven featured the return of the studs. Megatron topped all fantasy scorers his 2-touchdowns and nearly 200 receiving yards, making winners of many of his owners. Eric Decker came up big this week, along with Matt Forte, AJ Green, Matt Stafford, Andrew Luck, Vincent Jackson and Eddie Lacy.
Big names who were major let downs include Jay Cutler, who is our 4-6 weeks with a ripped groin, Adrian Peterson, Nick Foles, Tom Brady, DeSean Jackson, Alfred Morris, Tony Gonzolez and Josh Gordon.
Several lesser-known fantasy players posted big numbers in weeks six, including Jacquizz Rogers (whose production will fall off when Steven Jackson gets healthy), Harry Douglas (who many fantasy experts whiffed on), Roy Helu JR (who looks to be the better back than Alfred Morris), Jordan Reed, Jarrett Boykin and Jake Locker (whose availability came as a shock).
Week seven was the toughest yet in terms of injuries. It looks as though Doug Martin, Jermichael Finley and Reggie Wayne were all lost for the year.
Heading into week eight, with six teams on the bye and at least two starting quarterbacks hurt, this is a fine time to trade your extra QB. Speaking of QBs, it looks like Michael Vick is finally back.
