Week 7 of the NFL season will be a challenging one to navigate for our DFS lineups. There are six teams on bye, including big-time offenses like the Bills, Cowboys, Chargers, and Vikings. But, according to Vegas, we are also presented with many heavy favorites, with four games featuring a double-digit favorite.

All of this is a long way to say there aren’t many ideal spots for back-and-forth shootouts, which we crave for our GPP lineups. Even adding in the three island games doesn’t help much with all three games coming in with a Vegas total of 44 or fewer points. So, what that means for our GPP lineups is we might need to eat a little bit more of the chalk than usual and look for secondary options in passing games with favorable matchups to be a little bit different.

The players below are ones I’m looking at for large-field tournament considerations for Week 7 full slates:



Lamar Jackson (BAL): $7,400 vs. CIN
Yes, Jackson will be a popular option this week with his high floor and upside in one of the better game environments on the slate at home against the Bengals. However, as I mentioned in the intro, we will have to eat some chalk, and the quarterback is one of the positions that I’m willing to do since even chalky quarterback ownership never gets too high.
