Week 7 Half PPR Rankings

Chase Edmonds Note

Edmonds has a fantastic matchup on paper, but this actually might be more to his detriment than benefit. With the projected game script that Arizona is going to be able to run the ball for the entire second half with a big lead, Edmonds probably isn't going to be needed all that much. Especially if he's still dealing with his shoulder injury, we could see the Cardinals rest him in a game that they'll be able to win practically with their eyes closed. Edmonds receives more value in tighter game scripts where he's needed more as a receiving outlet out of the backfield, but that's simply not the case here. He can be viewed as still a solid start due to the other available options at the RB position, but there's not a ton of upside here when you take a closer look.

James Conner Note

Are there any leagues where you have Conner on your roster that you're contemplating not starting him this week? Everything is lining up here for Conner to have a monstrous performance. The Cardinals are 17.5-point favorites at the time of writing, Chase Edmonds doesn't appear to be at 100%, and the Cardinals are most likely going to be running the ball for the entire second half. We should see Conner get plenty of work this week against an abysmal defense that is bleeding fantasy points to opposing RBs and he's going to get goal-line opportunities. Normally, we don't want to rely on Conner over more proven options in our starting lineup, but with so many RBs currently on byes and injured, Conner should be viewed as a mid-range RB2 this week.
