Week 7 Fantasy Rankings

Injuries have had a big impact on the upper rungs of the NFL’s Week 7 fantasy rankings for wide receivers. Top-level stars Calvin Johnson and A.J. Green are both slated to miss their second straight games, leaving openings for stars to rise to truly elite status.

Frontrunners to replace Johnson and Green would be Pittsburgh Steeler Antonio Brown and Green Bay Packer Jordy Nelson, who occupy the top two wide receiver spots in fantasy. And although the Cowboys have been running the ball way more than usual, Dez Bryant is still one of the most reliable receivers in the league.

It could be argued that Atlanta’s Julio Jones should be assuming the role of top receiver, but the Falcons’ continued issues with pass protection make him a more unreliable option until quarterback Matt Ryan can find a way to stay upright. The Falcons will go into Baltimore to play the Ravens in Week 7, and Ryan has notoriously done terrible in outside away games. He isn’t doing all that great at home anymore, either.

Here are the Week 7 fantasy rankings for the Top 30 wide receivers in the league:

1 Antonio Brown PIT vs. Hou
2 Demaryius Thomas DEN vs. SF
3 Jordy Nelson GB vs. Car
4 Brandon Marshall CHI vs. Mia
5 Dez Bryant DAL vs. NYG

8 Randall Cobb GB vs. Car
9 Steve Smith BAL vs. Atl
10 Michael Floyd ARI at Oak
11 DeSean Jackson WAS vs. Ten
12 Mohamed Sanu CIN at Ind
13 Mike Wallace MIA at Chi
14 Emmanuel Sanders DEN vs. SF
15 T.Y. Hilton IND vs. Cin
16 Golden Tate DET vs. NO
17 Terrance Williams DAL vs. NYG
18 Julian Edelman NE vs. NYJ
19 Andre Johnson HOU at Pit
20 Rueben Randle NYG at Dal
21 Kendall Wright TEN at Was
22 DeAndre Hopkins HOU at Pit
23 Larry Fitzgerald ARI at Oak
