Fantasy Football Start’em, Sit’em: Week 7

We are back with more fantasy football lineup advice. Here’s who you should start and sit in Week 7:

Philip Rivers has been on fire lately and he’s going up against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars, so start him with confidence. The quarterback you should sit this week is Colin Kapernick, who hasn’t been effective this year and is going up against the Tennessee Titans, who have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing passers this year.

Giovani Bernard has a terrific matchup against the Detroit Lions and he’s steadily improving, so expect a solid stat line from him this week. On the flip side, Chris Johnson is going up against the brick wall that is the San Francisco 49ers‘ defense, so sit him if you can.

Josh Gordon has been the third-best receiver in fantasy land over the last four weeks and he has a terrific matchup against the Green Bay Packers, so plug him in. However, don’t start Dwayne Bowe because his poor play will continue against the Houston Texans‘ tough pass defense.

Kyle Rudolph is a solid start this week because with Josh Freeman under center, he should provide the security blanket on most plays and he has a terrific matchup against the New York Giants. Garrett Graham is the tight end you should sit because the Texans’ quarterback situation is awful and the Kansas City Chiefs‘ defense isn’t kind to anyone.

If you want fantasy advice for kickers, you won’t find it here…or anywhere else for that matter, because nobody cares. Good luck in Week 7!
