NFL Week 7 Showdown Slate

By on

Not a very exciting game tonight unless you are an Eagles or Giants fan but nonetheless we have a Showdown Slate which means there is money to be made!  With so many star players missing from the game, there is going to be a ton of value and potential for some cheaper players to hit. Here are a few players I will be targeting tonight!

Look, quarterbacks are always popular because of the high number of points they can put up. Wentz actually has not been that bad this year as he has been using his legs more than the last couple of seasons. Rushing touchdowns are difficult to predict, especially for quarterbacks, but with Miles Sanders out, look for Wentz to steal a couple touches at the goal line.

The argument for Jones is that the Eagles are up and the Giants have to throw. The rushing game has been bad since Saquon Barkley went down and the Eagles pass defense has actually been pretty good this year compared to their run defense. Danny Dimes has thrown one passing touchdown since Week 1. One. Wentz has a higher floor and ceiling but he should be pretty popular in the MVP spot tonight and pivoting to Jones could provide you with some leverage.

If I am playing a running back in the MVP spot it is going to be Boston Scott. Freeman just does not seem to have the upside and is sharing with Dion Lewis. Scott has shown in the past that he is capable of getting it done on the ground and through the air. He may share touches with Corey Clement but Scott should be the main guy and look for the Eagles to design some pass plays for him to get away from this surprisingly efficient Giants run defense.

He’s back! We can expect Travis Fulgham to be the Eagles’ main target tonight (welcome to 2020) and James Bradberry has been doing an excellent job shutting down opposing wide receivers. Almost every time Wentz and Jackson have played together they have shown a chemistry, and with deep ball throws, come big chunk plays. In GPPs you want the boom or bust guys, and Jackson is absolutely a boom or bust guy.

If Darius Slay is on Darius Slayton (try saying that three times fast) then I love the other Giants’ pass catchers tonight including Evan Engram who the fantasy community has completely abandoned at this point. You want to target the low-owned guys that have huge potential and talent so Engram fits that bill, especially with Richard Rodgers looking like he is going to be a chalk play at tight end.

Same reasoning as Engram. Sterling Shepard looks like he is going to play but he probably will not be at full health considering his recent stint on the IR. Nobody ever loves to play Tate. Consider playing Tate tonight.

Kickers!! This game is projected to be low scoring so fire up your kickers. Both Elliott and Gano have had good seasons so far, I just think the Eagles will be in the red zone more than the Giants. Kickers are always a fun way to differentiate your lineups and they can often put up just as many points as some position players.

 

Final Thoughts:  Meh, that is kind of how I feel about this game. It could surprise us like the Broncos/Jets game from a couple weeks back, but all in all I am expecting a fairly low-scoring slugfest between two division rivals.
