Heading into Week 7, a very good chunk of fantasy homeowners need to be ecstatic that they are getting a few of their prime working backs again from byes. Alvin Kamara, Josh Jacobs, Chris Carson, Joshua Kelley, Justin Jackson, and Latavius Murray have been all off final week, however they’re again in our Week 7 fantasy RB rankings, including power to the highest tier. The center tier takes a little bit of successful, although, because the Week 7 byes take away a number of key backs, and elevated competitors for touches causes just a few extra RBs to drop.

The Colts, Ravens, Dolphins, and Vikings are all off this week. Which means no Dalvin Prepare dinner, Alexander Mattison, Jonathan Taylor, Mark Ingram, JK Dobbins, Gus Edwards, and Myles Gaskin. Prepare dinner and Taylor have been must-starts when wholesome, and Ingram and Gaskin have been key RB2s/flex backs. Edwards, Dobbins, and even Mattison have been in a position to fill in at flex in a pinch, too.

It additionally does not assist that extra RB committees are rising throughout the league. Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay are sharing work for the Broncos, and with Zack Moss again, he and Devin Singletary are splitting time for the Payments. In Kansas Metropolis, Le’Veon Bell will now be taking some touches away from rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Maybe much more unexpectedly, J.D. McKissic has been stealing touches from Antonio Gibson the previous two weeks in Washington. This makes it tougher to seek out true RB2s, so fantasy homeowners might need to gamble on some high-upside flexes this week who they might not in any other case go for.

For that cause, it might behoove fantasy homeowners to belief the Lions’ backs in Week 7. Adrian Peterson and D’Andre Swift ought to each be RB2/flex performs towards a weak Falcons protection. Moreover, Chargers backs Justin Jackson and Joshua Kelley will be utilized in lineups towards the Jaguars. The Chargers might experience the new hand, however each ought to get loads of touches and be flex performs, on the very least.

Per normal, we’re not liking the Jets’ backfield a lot this week. Frank Gore may very well be a volume-based flex in normal leagues towards the Payments due to the byes, however he hasn’t posted a giant sport but this yr. It is solely a matter of time earlier than rookie La’Mical Perine takes over for him, however you may’t belief the younger man but both. When you can keep away from beginning both participant, do it. The upside simply is not nice sufficient with Gore and the ground is simply too low for Perine proper now.

Reminder: As all the time, we count on to make loads of modifications to those RB rankings all through the week, so verify again for updates and evaluation.
