Let’s kick off the Week 7 edition of our Tweet Storm in style – here’s Jared Smola with some sobering statistical information for Ezekiel Elliott owners:

You obviously aren’t benching Elliott if you own him, but this might be a good week to temper expectations – particularly in daily fantasy, where Zeke’s potential return on investment could pale in comparison to other options with more appealing matchups at lower salaries.

Tevin Coleman owners waited a while for a payoff – but as Graham Barfield points out, Coleman is in great position to produce consistent fantasy value moving forward:

Coleman has a sensational matchup this week against a Washington team that hasn’t done much on defense; combine that with what should be a positive game script for San Francisco running backs, and it’s clear that Coleman belongs firmly in the high-end RB2 conversation.

This one might not represent a pure fantasy take, but it does offer some value as Hayden Winks breaks down how plays per minute and NFL team totals correlate this week:

So if we’re understanding this correctly, the Rams are going to score a bunch and run a lot of plays, the Bills are going to score a bunch despite not running a bunch of plays, and the Dolphins … have a great shot at drafting Tua Tagovailoa next spring. Got it.

Jacob Gibbs offers hope to Brandin Cooks owners who are still waiting for their guy to break out; could it happen against the Falcons this week? This note suggests it just might:

Cooks is in must-start territory most weeks, but this could be the kind of matchup that either restores owners’ faith, or increases his trade value. Whatever the case, he’s a great season-long play and could be a sneaky daily fantasy option that might not be widely owned.

And it wouldn’t be a Tweet Storm without some perspective from Scott Barrett, who simultaneously fetes the newly-retired Brock Osweiler while sending Jared Goff owners into full tilt:

Look for Goff to get right against the Falcons this week; if he doesn’t, he’s easily on the list of most disappointing fantasy options of 2019.

Here’s a sampling of the other notable tweets we discovered this week:
