Week 7 PPR Rankings

Jaylen Waddle Note

Fresh off his first top-5 performance of the season, Waddle gets an unbelievable matchup with the Falcons, where he'll look to build on the impressive 10/7/2 line he posted last week.

Mike Gesicki Note

Gesicki's weekly fantasy finishes since Week 3: TE3, TE7, TE17, TE2. He's the TE8 on the season but the TE4 since Week 3. Gesicki's average depth of target is 9.8 yards, which is 2.0 yards deeper than Travis Kelce's aDOT and notably deep for any tight end. Yet Gesicki still has a 69.8% catch rate, so he's cashing in on those high-value targets. I'm slightly nervous about what might happen to Gesicki's target count once WRs Jaylen Waddle, DeVante Parker and Will Fuller are all active at the same time, but the best approach is to just keep riding Gesicki until there's a good reason to stop. I have him at TE6 this week. Gesicki also looks like one of the best values on the board, if not the best, at a price of $4,700 on DraftKings.

Myles Gaskin Note

The Dolphins' RB situation has become a fantasy swamp. It seemed as if Gaskin might have regained control of this backfield in Week 5, when he played 69% of the offensive snaps and had 10 catches for 74 yards and two touchdowns. That now appears to have been either a mirage or an opponent-specific gameplan against a Buccaneers defense that's impregnable against the run but can be had through the air. Last week, Gaskin played the same number of snaps as Brown (a 36% snap share for each) and had 5-9-0 rushing and 2-5-0 receiving. Woof. Even with six teams on bye, Gaskin is just a high-end RB3 this week. Ahmed, who at times looks like he has the most juice of anyone in this backfield, played 27% of the snaps in Week 6 and had a season-high seven carries. He's the RB44. Brown has had at least five carries in all five of the games he's played this year, but never more than eight. He's the RB45. I'm not touching any of these guys in DFS.
