Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 7 Half PPR Rankings
Robert Woods Note

Woods has struggled to live up to the offseason hype with this offense being as run-heavy as it is, but he's still been a consistent option for your starting lineup every single week. Woods should be viewed as a high-end WR3 in this matchup against the vaunted Bears pass defense.

Cooper Kupp Note

Kupp has not been as steady of a contributor as we all were hoping at the beginning of the season. Over the last two weeks, Kupp has been the WR55 in Half PPR formats. Now, he has a matchup against the Bears defense that are suffocating opposing wideouts and allowing very little to opposing QBs from a fantasy perspective. Kupp should be viewed as a WR3 this week against the Bears that will need to find the end zone to finish higher than that mark.

Darrell Henderson Note

Henderson continues to see the majority of the work in this backfield. He's looked fantastic with his opportunity and I expect McVay to stick with him as the primary back yet again this week. With Akers being a non-factor in this offense, Henderson can be rolled out as a safe RB2 every week with upside.

Tyler Higbee Note

Higbee's a touchdown-dependent TE2 at this point and should be avoided if you have the opportunity. Everett's usage is simply too spotty to trust him for fantasy right now. He's outside the TE2 range.

Malcolm Brown Note

It's been pretty apparent who the Rams best running back is but don't go getting overconfident. I know I sound like a broken record, but Sean McVay has said he's modeling his run-game after Kyle Shanahan and that he'll play the hot hand on a game-by-game basis. The Bears have been a team you can run the ball against more than in years past, as running backs have averaged a solid 4.31 yards per carry while scoring five touchdowns through six games. That's been Henderson's primary area of usage, as he's tallied 69 of the Rams 118 carries (58.5 percent) over the last five games. If his usage continues in this game, he should be able to deliver a top-25 performance. The Bears have dominated running backs in the passing game while allowing just 1.12 PPR points per target to them on the year, which is the second-lowest number in the league. It's not a small sample size, either, as they've averaged a solid 6.7 targets per game. Because of all these factors, the Bears have yet to allow a top-15 running back against them. There have been three running backs who've totaled at least 80 yards on the ground, so Henderson is the only one I'd consider startable when you factor in their roles, though he's still just a high-end RB3 with the uncertainty in this backfield. Brown's role typically comes down to passing usage, though he's still yet to total more than 31 yards through the air, and the Bears have yet to allow a running back more than 36 yards through the air, making him a weak RB4. Akers is a wait-and-see bench stash, but not a great one.
