Time flies, doesn’t it? It feels like fantasy drafts just wrapped up yesterday.
Nonetheless, here we are. We’ve just about reached the midway point of the fantasy football regular season. Most players have seven weeks remaining before the playoffs begin. That’s it!
In Week 6, some of our fantasy heroes of Week 5 flopped—wide receivers, in particular (Will Fuller, Amari Cooper, D.J. Chark). However, several big-name QBs saved the day by continuing their recent hot streaks—Deshaun Watson, Matt Ryan, and Russell Wilson.
Meanwhile, two hyped-up AFC North running backs—James Conner and Nick Chubb—are proving themselves worthy of the substantial preseason attention they received, while a third (Joe Mixon) still can’t find his rhythm. Given the first-round pick you probably spent on him, we know this suggestion is painful, but it might be time to float Mixon out there to other managers in your league as trade bait—particularly if you’re out of the playoff picture presently. Gotta take a chance and cut your losses.
So, which players and storylines will define Week 7 of the 2019 NFL season? We’re here to give you a heads-up on what might unfold.
Below, we lay out players who are must-starts and must-sits for your fantasy lineup, based on variables such as opponent strength, recent trends, and injuries.
