Week Seven Picks: WRs, TEs & Defenses

Big plays in the passing game are essential in today’s NFL. Wide receivers and tight ends can give defenses fits trying to stop them. Here are the WRs and TEs that I like in week 7, along with a defense to consider for your lineup this weekend.

WRs

Martavis Bryant vs. Kansas City

Bryant returned from suspension with a bang, catching 6 passes for 137 yards and 2 touchdowns. He’ll get a chance to add to that performance against a Chiefs defense that has been very friendly to WRs, giving up 34.37 FPPG.

Larry Fitzgerald vs. Baltimore

Fitzgerald is Carson Palmer‘s favorite target and the Ravens do not have a very good secondary! Need I say more?

TEs

Jason Witten vs New York Giants

Matt Cassel is known to throw short-to-intermediate passes, which is exactly where Witten works the field. Witten also has 3 TDs in his past two visits to MetLife Stadium.

Delanie Walker vs Atlanta Falcons

Walker had to smile ear to ear seeing the stats Ben Watson put up against the Falcons last week. Walker should be the focal point of the Titans’ offense.

Defense

Atlanta Falcons defense against Tennessee Titans

The Falcons are coming off their 1st loss of the season with 10 days rest and they get Zach Mettenberger. I expect the Falcons defense to play angry after their performance versus the Saints. Tennessee has given up 20 sacks on the season and committed 11 turnovers. The Falcons should be able to get to the quarterback and win the turnover battle to get the win for Atlanta.

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.
