Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 7 PPR Rankings

Calvin Ridley Note

It seems only a matter of time before the runway is clear for Ridley to take off. He's averaged 10.5 targets in his four games, but he's averaging just 6.1 yards per target, well below his career average of 9.0. There's a correction coming, and it could happen this week, particularly if Dolphins CBs Xavien Howard and Byron Jones remain sidelined after being out with injuries last week. He's my WR7, though I'll probably drop him a spot or two if Howard and Jones both play. I wish Ridley were a bit cheaper than $6,600 on DraftKings, but I may very well throw him into one of my lineups even without a discount.

Cordarrelle Patterson Note

I'm unapologetically ranking Patterson as RB8 this week, and there's a case to be made that he deserves a higher ranking. The RB12 on the season, Patterson has been heavily involved as a runner and receiver thus far, and the matchup with Miami's putrid run defense boosts his value significantly.

Kyle Pitts Note

Pitts' breakout in London came while Calvin Ridley was sidelined, so it'll be interesting to see if he can continue being productive with Ridley back in action this week. Regardless, Pitts is locked in as a top-4 option in Week 7.

Mike Davis Note

Though Mike D has been a disappointment for fantasy managers thus far (in large part due to the emergence of Cordarrelle Patterson), he's still scored in back-to-back contests and gets a juicy matchup with the Dolphins in Week 7. Both he and Patterson should be considered top-15 plays.

Russell Gage Note

Gage is due back from an ankle injury, and I expect he'll find his way into some season-long lineups in a bye-heavy week. A lot of fantasy managers seemed to fall in love with Gage during his 72-786-4 season in 2020. Those numbers just barely made Gage fantasy-relevant, but I suspect that relevance is going to evaporate now that Kyle Pitts and Cordarrelle Patterson have become major contributors to the Atlanta passing game. I have Gage ranked WR54 this week and have zero interest in him in DFS.
