Week 7 Half PPR Rankings
Kenny Golladay Note

Golladay has been borderline unstoppable ever since he came back from his injury. In this matchup, fire him up as a mid-range WR1.

D'Andre Swift Note

The Lions came out this past week with a clear plan to get Swift more involved in this offense. His talent was on full display and he put up a dominant fantasy performance. The question now becomes, will he receive the same amount of work in a game that the Lions aren't playing with a huge lead? Swift should still be heavily involved in this offense in the future, but it's going to be hard to trust him as anything more than a high-end RB3 until we see him start to take over the majority of the touches. As long as AP is still on the roster, it's unlikely that that ever happens.

T.J. Hockenson Note

Hockenson is Stafford's second receiving option in this offense. While he didn't put up good numbers last week, his touchdown reception saved his fantasy day. He should be viewed as a solid mid-range TE1 every single week with ridiculous upside in this matchup against the Falcons.

Adrian Peterson Note

Peterson continues to get carries in this offense and he can be viewed as a fine fill-in option if fantasy teams are in a pinch. He can be viewed as a RB3 this week.

Marvin Jones Jr. Note

Here are a few receivers who have more yardage than Jones on the year: Dontrelle Inman, Olamide Zaccheaus, Willie Snead, David Moore, Jalen Guyton, and Kalif Raymond. There are a lot more, as he ranked 91st in yards among receivers through six weeks. This game is the last hope for a resurgence. The Falcons have already allowed 11 different receivers to post top-36 numbers against them, so essentially two per game. Jones has seen at least five targets in 3-of-5 games this year, and knowing teams have thrown the ball 63.6 percent of the time against the Falcons, we should expect at least five targets in this game. The Falcons have allowed a massive 10.2 yards per target to wide receivers, and it's not on a small sample size anymore, as they've seen 128 targets, which ranks as the third-most in the league. They are who they are, but the question now is: Is Jones who he appears to be, or does he have a big game left? My gut tells me he's going to have a top-36 performance, but he has to be considered a WR4 with how poorly he's produced.

Danny Amendola Note

He's now seen declining targets in three straight games, which coincides with the return of Golladay to the lineup. You never played Amendola for the ceiling, so knowing his floor is no longer there, it's tough to trust him, even during bye weeks. The Falcons have struggled with slot receivers, but that's easy to do when you play against Justin Jefferson, Tyler Lockett, and CeeDee Lamb in three of your games. It seems they've moved Isaiah Oliver into the slot for good and he's done better there than on the perimeter, as he's allowed just 74 yards on 11 targets over the last two weeks in the slot. Because of that, Amendola isn't a great streaming option.
