Week 7 is upon us and we’ve seen a flurry of trades this week that has changed the makeup of a few teams and matchups. This is another big bye week that sees four teams on break, like last week, including Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Seasoned fantasy players know about the studs and chalky plays so at Bruno Boys we try to help wade through the matchups on those tougher decisions, or point out when there’s a great matchup that you should go all-in on.
Still, we feel very strong about these recommendations and you should use them to help guide you to your starting lineup.
Here are your Week 7 Fantasy Football Quarterbacks to Start.
Gardner Minshew, Jacksonville Jaguars, at Cincinnati Bengals
So far, Minshew has had just one bad game, and that was last week against the New Orleans Saints who are playing great football right now. Minshew had been defying matchup and was creating a high floor for himself and is in line for another opportunistic matchup against a bad defense, raising his ceiling for Week 7.
Cincinnati is coming off back-to-back weeks where they chased the quarterbacks up and down the field. Kyler Murray and Lamar Jackson each scored 25+ fantasy points against the Bengals. While Minshew won’t chew up yards on the ground like those dual threats, he can get success once Leonard Fournette has established himself in the game.
