What’s going on everyone, and welcome to the seventh week of the 2018 NFL season! I hope you guys all had a great Week 6 thanks to some awesome performances from Aaron Rodgers, Jameis Winston, Melvin Gordon, Latavius Murray, Tyreek Hill, Albert Wilson, and Cole Beasley (who knew?)

Below are my rankings for Week 7, for all scoring systems, so enjoy!

And like always, be sure to check out Rudy’s fantastic premium tools here, and follow myselfMB, and Jay on Twitter.

In the meantime, I’ll be back on Saturday for the eighth edition of my 2018 Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em series!

  1. Roger Rabbit says:

    Afternoon Zach attack!! Man oh man can’t believe we are at the mid season part heading into week 7.

    My mid season MVP by position would you agree or disagree:

    MVP QB: Patrick Mahomes

    MVP RB: Todd Gurley

    MVP WR: Adam Thielen

    MVP TE: Travis Kelce

    MVP IDP: this is tough but I’ve give the slight edge to Darius Leonard. My next option would’ve been Khali Mack he’s single handed transformed the bears D.

    MVP kicker: Harrison Butker

    MVP Rookie offense: Saquon Barkley

    MVP Rookie IDP: Darius Leonard

    Let’s see if this stays until the end of the season!

    Now onto my team:

    .5 ppr league it’s a 10 team league with 9 bench spots.

    Based on my roster making moves or stand pat? Keep in mind I don’t think really need to make a move maybe you will have a different view: I am 5-1 everyone is either 2-4, 3-3 or one guy is 4-2 who’s not in my division.

    My QB Winston I only roster one QB & he already had his bye

    RB’s: DJ, Melvin Gordon, brieda, Alf Morris, Kerryon Johnson, Ron Jones, ekeler (cuff).

    WRs: Hilton (maybe returning soon?), Keenan Allen, amari Cooper , Sterling Shepard, Doug Baldwin, Geronimo Allison, Tyler Boyd, Chris Hogan, jermaine kearse, kupp.

    TE like QB I only roster one TE , I added oj Howard this AM through waivers.

    Would you do any of these or stand pat:

    1.) deal DJ to get mixon? Or is that a wash? However I like that DJ gets a nice matchup this week vs Broncos

    2.) would you look to buy super low on Fournette? Amari Cooper for Fournette? Or amari for Jordan Howard?

    3.) deal brieda to owner who lost Freeman to get Diggs? Then if I do that flip one of my WR for a RB? If I’m unable to get the RB from another owner I may be screwed for my RB depth

    4.) waiver Q. Drop Ron jones for which one as a stash: nick chubb, donta foreman, jalen Richard ? The available RBs aren’t too hot: ivory, Jamaal Charles, riddick, Blount, Alf blue, juszycz, chase Edmonds, Mark Walton, gallman, d booker, rod smith , kalen ballage in addition to the names I just mentioned.

    5.) waiver Q part 2: I added jermaine kearse this AM hold onto him or drop him or Hogan for one of: Josh Reynolds, Cole Beasley, Callaway, Albert Wilson

    Thanks man!!

      Zach says:

      @Roger Rabbit: What’s up man?! Yeah, I agree with you on most of the mid-season MVP’s, however Saquon makes a serious argument for the #1 spot if Gurley wasn’t so darn good.

      I would deal DJ to get Mixon if you could pull it off. I would try to get Fournette at a cheap cost if you could pull it off. Yes, I would get Fournette for Amari Cooper, or even Jordan Howard. Both scenarios are good for you. I don’t think you could get Diggs for Breida, but hey, if the owner is willing to go for it, pull the trigger on that.

      Based on the available backs, I would keep RoJo. I would also keep both Kearse and Hogan.

      Thanks for the question my dude! Don’t mind answering, no matter how long it is

  2. DiRo says:

    Am I crazy to offer Mahomes and D Johnson for Wentz and Gordon?

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @DiRo: If you could get Wentz and MGIII for David Johnson and Mahomes, I’d pull that trigger. However, I think if you can do that, you’d fleece your league-mate

  3. Re-Pete says:

    My question is a bit shorter than the one from Roger Rabbit:

    While I can follow the rankings, my choices for two flex spots are all within range of each other, and I’m facing the best team in my league (12/non-PPR). So I need to hit on these to win. Got a gut feel for which two of these I ought to start:

    Corey Davis / Chris Godwin / Peyton Barber / Royce Freeman / Marlon Mack

    • Roger Rabbit says:


      Hey I just wanted to go in depth so Zach had everything to work with. The longest part was itemizing the mid season MVPs!

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Re-Pete: Out of these names, I’d go with Royce Freeman and Barber. Thanks for the question dude!

  4. Wabarj says:

    How would you rank R Jones, Drake, ito, and Mack for ROS upside? Thanks!

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Wabarj: Drake, Mack, Ito, then RoJo

  5. Russowl says:

    Standard non ppr with 10 pt bonus @ 100 Rushing and receiving
    Need 2 flexes

    Alshon Jeffery, Golladay, josh Gordon, Lindsay, or Drake

    with the 10 point bonus at a hundred yards I’m leaning Jeffrey and golladay

    • Russowl says:

      @Russowl: I also have Smallwood

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Russowl: Jeffery and Golladay for me as well

  6. Brian says:

    Hey zach. 3 questions if you don’t mind.

    16 team H2H PPR dynasty. 6-0 and have scored most points in league by 85. Looking to cover byes and improve RB depth. Roster is: QB (start 1) – Deshaun, Ben, Chad Kelly; RB (start 2) – Conner, White; WR (start 2) – julio, tyreek; WR/RB/TE flex (start 2) – Alshon, Hyde; TE (start 1) – Gronk; BN – Leveon, josh adams, cja, jaylen samuels, baldwin, demaryius, geronimo, josh reynolds, braxton berrios, ian thomas, asj.

    1. I have some RBs i’m targeting. Can you rank them for me or put them into tiers. my main concern besides depth is hyde going from 15-20 touches down to 10 or so when hue finally gets his head out of his ass and gives duke/chubb more work

    RBs i’m targeting – Yeldon, alex collins, gore (obv just depth for this year), breida, ekeler, bilal, duke, drake, crowell.

    2. my backup TE is ian anderson who didn’t do much even when olsen was out. so i have a small problem when gronk goes on his bye in a few weeks. not much on wire other than ed dickson, aj derby, nick o’leary, james o’shaughnessy. Would you drop josh reynolds or josh adams for any of those guys or wait until it gets closer to gronk’s bye?

    3. reynolds and adams – would you drop either for curtis samuel, kendrick bourne, richie james, or maurice harri

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Brian: I’d go with Collins, Breida, Yeldon, Drake, Crowell, Ekeler, Gore, Bilal, and Duke.

      I would wait until Gronk’s bye approaches.

      Stay put with the WR’s too

  7. Mike says:

    I give up D.Johnson and get Gronk. Would you do it in PPR?

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Mike: I wouldn’t do it. Without taking a look at your roster, just value for value, Johnson holds more value then Gronk

  8. Ron P says:

    .5PPR Redraft – Need 2 .

    Gronk, Golladay or E. Sanders?


    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Ron P: Gronk and Sanders

  9. Nightpandas says:

    16 team std

    Got offered Chris Thompson and M Thomas for my Bell and Conner …what ya think

    Start 2wr 2 Rb 2 flex

    Other rb Henry Hines Duke and Foreman
    Other wr Baldwin Golloday Gordon Stills

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Nightpandas: If you need help at the WR position, I’d pull that trigger. Hines and Foreman, Baldwin and Gordon

  10. Bluety says:

    12 team ppr looking to improve my team 2rbs, 3 wrs, Flex
    P. Mahomes Bench Watkins, cubb, Fournette and Newton
    Would you trade Cam Newton for a WR? I have been offered A. Jefferys. He also has Cooks, Hill and Allen. What is fair

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Bluety: Yes, but I would target Tyreek, or a guy like Cooper Kupp, maybe Hilton? You could do better than Alshon

  11. Ron P says:

    I’m struggling at 2-4. Trade offer is on the table in a standard league.

    Give: Chubb and Crabtree
    Get: Coleman and JuJu

    My other RB are David Johnson, Howard, Mack, Carson and Miller (Need to drop 1 as well for a legal roster – Carson or Miller???)

    My other WR are M. Thomas, D. Adams, Golladay, Baldwin, D. Thomas

  12. William Trill Cauley-Stein says:

    What up?! I hope you are doing well. I am in a ten team .5 PPR league. We do have big play bonuses in my league. Can you help me figure out who to start? I would really appreciate it.

    QB- Malhomes OR Goff

    RB- S.Michel?

    RB2- Ingram?

    WR1- M. Thomas? B. Cooks?

    WR2- Diggs? B.Cooks?

    Flex-B. Cooks? OR L. Murray T. Coleman? OR S.Michel, OR N. Chubb OR M. Ingram?


    K- Butker

    D- Colts
