Crafting The Perfect DFS Lineup For Fantasy Football Week 7

4 min read

Quarterback

Jimmy Garoppolo: ($6,000DK, $7,500FD)

Jimmy Garoppolo hasn’t really needed to play light outs this year as the 49ers are routinely playing with leads and running the ball successfully. However, a match-up against the Washington Redskins means that Garoppolo will have a high floor in Week 7 and that’s all we need out of our quarterback position in DFS.

Jimmy Garoppolo is projected to be rostered in 1.5% of all DFS lineups.

Josh Allen: ($6,500DK, $7,700FD)

Allen completed 23 of 32 passes for 219 yards and a TD in his Week 5 match-up against the Titans, coming off a bye week, much healthier and playing against a Miami Dolphins defense that is currently ranked 25th against opposing QBs make Josh Allen a must-start in DFS. He won’t blow the barn doors off Miami because the Bills will handle them easily, however, expect him to have a high floor as well due to his legs.

Josh Allen is projected to be rostered in 9.5% of all DFS lineups.

Running Back

Leonard Fournette: ($7,000DK, $7,900FD)

Leonard Fournette is the definition of “chalk” this week, if you are relatively new to DFS chalk plays are favorite plays, Fournette at 38.7% will be that play this week. We are still in the middle of the deep bye weeks, so it’s safe to go the chalk, especially in head to heads and double ups. Fournette will be running the ball against the 31st ranked Bengals defense. He is currently averaging 97.3 yards per game this year, despite only having one touchdown.

Leonard Fournette is projected to be rostered in 38.7% of all DFS lineups.

Matt Breida: ($5,300DK, $5,600FD)

Picking what 49ers running back on a week to week basis that is going to get you points is practically a coin flip. This week it’s pretty safe to go Matt Breida since they’ll be playing against the Washington Redskins, the 28th ranked defense against the run. Expect San Francisco to get a lead early and run the ball often.

Matt Breida is projected to be rostered in 15% of all DFS lineups.

Wide Receiver 

Duke Williams: ($4,100DK, $4,700FD)

Duke Williams led the CFL in receiving yards in 2018 with 1,579 on 88 catches. He also tallied 11 touchdowns, he took a crack at an NFL roster after that season and burst onto the scene in Week 5 with a touchdown. His emergence has led to the departure of Zay Jones and all of a sudden Duke Williams makes himself a very interesting touchdown target in Buffalo. It’s a high risk play because the volume hasn’t been proven yet, however, Willians can be a tournament winner.

Duke Williams is projected to be rostered in an undetermined amount of all DFS lineups.

Will Fuller V: ($6,200DK, $6,300FD)

Maybe a couple weeks late here on the Will Fuller party, however, a boom or bust player like Fuller is always worth putting into your DFS lineup. He fell back down to earth last week with only five catches for 44 yards after going off for 14/217/3 the week before. Fuller finds himself against a Colts defense that is currently ranked 24th against wide receivers.

Will Fuller V is projected to be rostered in 15.2% of all DFS lineups.

Tight End

Evan Engram: ($6,500DK, $6,800FD)

Who else is Daniel Jones going to throw the ball to in the endzone? Evan Engram is that guy despite only 2 touchdowns on the season, he is a high volume play making tight end and will more than likely finish the week as TE1. Engram currently has 33 catches for 373 yards and 2 TDs on the year despite quarterback problems surrounding him. Engram will look to continue gaining a rapport with Jones against the league worst ranked Arizona Cardinals defense.

Evan Engram is projected to be rostered in 14.6% of all DFS lineups.

Jordan Akins: ($3,200DK, $4,600FD)

Akins caught all three of his targets for 39 yards last week against the Chiefs and is starting to find his place on this Texans roster. Akins tied for second behind Will Fuller on red-zone targets last game. Akins currently has 13 catches for 196 yards and 2 TDs. He’s a very cheap, serviceable tight end in Week 7 against a 24th ranked Colts defense.

Jordan Akins is projected to be rostered in 0.6% of all DFS lineups.

Defense/Special Teams

Minnesota Vikings: ($3,100DK, $3,800FD)

The Minnesota Vikings defense this year is performing as expected,  they have forced 10 turnovers and 17 sacks in 6 games so far this year giving them the 10th ranked NFL defense according to Sleeper. They will face an average Lions offense in a divisional match-up.

Minnesota is projected to be rostered in 6.1% of all DFS lineups.
