week 7 fantasy rankings

The running back position continues to be a volatile one in terms of fantasy football Many of the top stars are on the sidelines with injuries, paving the way for some unexpected names like Branden Oliver and Lamar Miller to step into much bigger roles (and bigger fantasy scores).

Dallas Cowboys star DeMarco Murray joined Jim Brown as the only to backs to start the season with six straight 100-yard games, and with his insane workload, he should continue that trend in Week 7.

Another Texas back, Houston’s Arian Foster, should also continue his dominance (as long as he’s healthy) when the Texans take on the suddenly not-so-fearsome Pittsburgh rush defense.

Chicago’s Matt Forte has been catching a ton of passes and is lighting up the score sheet. Kansas City’s Jamaal Charles should be in for a big day at home against the San Diego Charger, and the same could be said for Seahawk Marshawn Lynch as long as the Seahawks give him more carries as planned.
