 If you're looking for a matchup the Broncos should exploit this week, it's the one Sanders has. He'll match-up with Budda Baker, the converted safety who's attempting to cover the slot and failing miserably at it. It's not something that just started this season, either, as he struggled in coverage his rookie season as well. On 72 career targets in coverage, he's allowed 56 receptions for 617 yards and three touchdowns. Of the 34 passes that have gone his direction this year, just five of them have hit the ground. When targeting Sanders, Keenum has a 108.2 QB Rating, so there's little reason to think he'll stop targeting him when his job is on the line. Sanders has at least seven targets in 5-of-6 games, which means he should have at least six receptions in this matchup, right? Put him into lineups as a WR2 and expect results.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
This season's QB2 behind Patrick Mahomes, Ryan has averaged 354.75 passing yards and 3.75 touchdowns per game at home. Following a strong defensive start against underwhelming opponents (Jaguars, Cowboys, Texans), the Giants have relinquished at least 33 points in each of their last three games. Not far off from his 2016 MVP production, Ryan remains in consideration for Week 7's top quarterback spot. He's a start either way, but keep an eye on Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu's availability after both wideouts left Week 6's game early. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Giants are 13th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Ryan has 13 touchdowns and just 1 pick in four home games this year. He is a QB1 at home. Sanders has a tough matchup against the Cardinals second ranked wide receiver defense. He is a WR3 that does not have a ton of upside this week.
