Week 7 of the NFL season is an awful one for fantasy owners as countless studs and other starters are off. Specifically, four quarterbacks who are starters in most leagues are off, including the Atlanta Falcons‘ Matt Ryan, the Denver Broncos‘ Peyton Manning, the Philadelphia Eagles‘ Michael Vick and the San Diego Chargers‘ Philip Rivers.
Fantasy owners of any of these passers are in desperate need of a fill-in for Week 7 whether they’re trying to keep a lead in their league or just trying to stay alive in the playoff race. If they got lucky with Ryan or Manning in the middle to late rounds, they’re slightly panicking this week with those two studs off, but never fear – there are six quarterbacks who aren’t typical starters, but have excellent matchups this week. All six of them should be considered as bye week fill-ins for Week 7.
The best thing about these six players is they’ll likely be more than just one-week wonders for fantasy owners needing a fill-in. All six of these guys could be great sell-high candidates after their Week 7 performances, so fantasy owners who pick them up and start them may get double value out of them. So whether you just need a quarterback fill-in for Week 7 or you’re in need for some juicy trade bait, RantSports.com has you covered.
