Hello everyone, and welcome to Thursday! Football is back tonight! My apologies for having to publish my rankings a day late, as I was a bit tied up outside of the womb that is Razzball.com, but don’t worry, I am back and better(?) than ever!

Today after my rankings, I will be providing some of the players that I am high on, that also pretty much correlates with the Razzball projections to get you guys an early look at some Razzball certified picks for Week 7!

Let’s have it then!

*Note*: All projections are based off of standard league scoring in our Razzball projection system.




Players I’m High On

Marcus Mariota @ CLE: Proj: 23.93 (#1 QB)

After missing Week 5, Mariota came back into our lives last week against the Colts and had a pretty good performance, throwing for 300+ yards, 1 TD and 1 INT, and now draws a good matchup against the Browns. I like me some Mariota this week, and so does our projections, ranking him as our #1 QB.

Tyrod Taylor vs. TB: Proj: 16.91 (#9 QB)

I really do like Taylor this week as he draws a matchup against the weak Bucs defense at home; a defense that can be punished through the air, and on the ground, so it wouldn’t surprise me if we see Taylor have a nice game running the ball as well.

Jay Ajayi vs. NYJ: Proj: 14.85 pts (#3 RB)

Ajayi has been a little disappointing to start the year, but I’m still confident on him ROS as he has been getting quite the workload as the bell-cow in South Beach to open the year. Now he’ll be back in Miami at home against a Jets defense that ranks 25th against the run. I love me some Ajayi this week.

Marlon Mack vs JAX: Proj: 5.59 (#40 RB)

I think Mack is a little low in our projections. I’m expecting a big week from him against a Jaguars defense that will probably shut down the Colts passing game, but still ranks 31st against the run, per Football Outsiders. If the Colts want to have any success this week, they’ll get Mack and Gore involved as much as they can.

Michael Crabtree vs. KC: Proj: 8.37 pts (#12 WR)

Crabtree has been on fire this year through 6 weeks, and now draws another great matchup against Chiefs CB Marcus Peters, in what PFF deems to be a 82% advantage for Crabtree. Fire him up in all leagues tonight.

Demaryius Thomas @ LAC: Proj: 8.61 pts (#10 WR)

With Sanders being out for the foreseeable future, I expect Thomas’ usage rate to increase dramatically this week against Los Angeles. If the Broncos want to be successful after a letdown Week 6 performance against New York, they’ll have to get Thomas involved.

Jimmy Graham @ NYG: Proj: 6.58 pts (#9 TE)

I love me some Graham this week. The Giants’ linebackers are the worst part about this defense, and it’s a great matchup for Graham. Fire him up.

Players I’m Not High On

Eli Manning vs. SEA: Proj: 12.93 pts (#23 QB)

They may get Shepard back this week, and they are at home, but I don’t want to have Manning at all this week.

Javorius Allen @ MIN: Proj: 8.78 pts (#18 RB)

He’s getting the workload as Baltimore’s only productive RB, but I don’t want to even think about him this week at Minnesota.

Washington Receivers (Crowder/Pryor)

They’ve been very disappointing so far through 6 weeks, and I don’t want to have them in Week 7 either as they match up very poorly against the Eagles CB’s.

Coby Fleener @ GB: Proj: 4.35 pts (#20 TE)

He’s been invisible thus far in the offense to start the year, and it’s too tough of a matchup for me to want to start Fleener.


Alright guys, that about does it for me. Again, my apologies for having to publish this on Thursday morning As always, leave your questions and comments below and I will answer them in a timely manner.  Take it easy.

  1. Jose says:

    Picked up Brissett last week with Prescott on BYE last week, not that either is a good option, but would you start him this week over Flacco?

    Also, for WR, WR, TE, FLEX, FLEX would you change any of Crabtree, Landry, Brate, Davante Adams, Bennett: For either of Javorius Allen or Stefon Diggs (If healthy). I saw your not big on Allen, but are you lower on him than Bennett?


    • Jose says:

      @Jose: Ryan Fitzpatrick is also available

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Jose: I would start Prescott over Brissett and Flacco.

      I would keep your current team in tack the way that it is. I like Allen ROS, sure, but not this week

      • Jose says:

        @Zach: We start two QBs. Prescott would be one of the two. Who would you have as the second QB.

        • Zach

          Zach says:

          @Jose: Honestly I hate Brissett and Flacco this week. I would rather have Fitzpatrick if Jameis is out

  2. James says:

    Thanks for these rankings each week.

    Way down on Cam. What’s the reasoning?

    I’m likely starting Wentz over him but #13 is very low for Cam, who just padded his passing stats by running 11 for 70 with a TD last week…

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @James: Thank you James! I’m expecting this game to be low scoring, and I’m concerned about his performance last week, which shows signs of what I didn’t like about Cam heading into the year. I love Wentz this week a lot. Fire him up

      • James says:

        @Zach: Yeah, I share those concerns… Would love to see the fun-loving MVP Cam appear with some consistency. Wentz it is. Thanks!

  3. Noam Levenson says:

    Thank you Zach!

    For my PPR flex spot, pick 2 RB and 1 Flex:
    James White, Chris Thompson, Jordan Howard, Cooper Kupp, Joe Mixon, Marlon Mack

      Zach says:

      @Noam Levenson: Jordan Howard, Mack, James White
