Oct 18, 2012
Welcome to Week 7 of the 2012 NFL season and the fourth week of byes. Six teams are off this week including Denver, Kansas City, Miami, Atlanta, San Diego, and Philadelphia. Off the table are players like LeSean McCoy, Peyton Manning, Jamaal Charles, Brian Hartline, Julio Jones, and Antonio Gates.
Here are our “Fantasy Football Start ‘Ems” for Week 7 of the 2012 season. As a reminder, everyone knows to start elite players like Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, and LeSean McCoy, so when we compile our list we make sure to focus on serviceable players that will benefit from a favorable matchup.
WIDE RECEIVERS–START ’EM
Kenny Britt (Tennessee Titans) at Buffalo Bills
When Britt is healthy, there’s no denying that he’s the Titans’ No. 1 target. In two shootouts, Britt was targeted 11 times, against the Lions and Steelers, plus he’s getting stronger and healthier. The Bills pose another opportunity for Britt to shine, facing a substandard secondary and the potential for both teams to run and gun. He hasn’t hit the century mark yet in receiving yards, but this is a good week to hope for some big numbers for Britt.

Torrey Smith (Baltimore Ravens) at Houston Texans
We’re not sure how many of you saw the Texans get absolutely torched on Sunday Night in Week 5, but the Packers laid a whipping on Wade Phillips’ crew and we think the Ravens can replicate that, even if it’s just with Smith, who isn’t the most heavily targeted Raven but at 65.7 yards per game–a big improvement from 52.6–Smith is becoming a receiver you can regularly start as a WR2.
