Week Seven Picks: QBs & RBs

We’re nearly at the midpoint of the NFL season, therefore we have a pretty good feel of the strengths and weaknesses of each team. DFS is all about picking the right matchups to build your lineup. Here are the quarterbacks (QBs) and running backs (RBs) that I like in this week’s games.

QBs

Carson Palmer vs. Baltimore

Have you seen Baltimore’s defense lately? Neither have I. Opposing QBs have produced at least 21 fantasy points against them. Palmer is having an excellent season and figures to continue that against the Ravens.

Andrew Luck vs. New Orleans

Luck put up over 30 fantasy points against New England last week after missing the two previous games with a shoulder injury. New Orleans does not have a very stout defense. They lack the pass rush and secondary needed to slow down any good QB. Though the Colts have struggled to keep Luck protected all season, they should keep him on his feet long enough to pick apart the Saints defense.

RBs

Latavius Murray vs. San Diego

Murray should be feeling fresh after the Raiders bye week. The Chargers 29th-ranked run defense has been a dream matchup for opposing RBs, giving up more fantasy points to tailbacks than any other team.

Adrian Peterson vs. Detroit

Peterson has started to look like his old self. He’s 6th in the NFL in yards rushing and produces 17 fantasy points per game. Detroit ranks 26th against the run this season without Suh. Expect Peterson to get plenty of carries against the Lions.

 

London Fletcher

London Fletcher

London Fletcher is a former American football linebacker who played in the National Football League (NFL). Undrafted in 1998, he was signed by the St. Louis Rams as a rookie free agent and became a Super Bowl champion with the team. He was also a member of the Buffalo Bills, where he played for five seasons, and the Washington Redskins, where he played for seven seasons. Fletcher was well known for never missing a game in his career, being one of only four players in NFL history to play in over 250 consecutive games. Fletcher also holds the record for consecutive starts at the linebacker position. He eventually finished his career with 215 consecutive games started, which ties him for 6th all time along with Alan Page and Ronde Barber. London has agreed to be a writer and representative for the FantasyDraft brand and serves as an ambassador to the site. He has no more access to the site than the typical user.
