 You can confidently start Watson every single week this season except in their two games versus the Jaguars. In fact, Jacksonville has been so great against the pass that it would be in your best interest to stream Manning or even Flacco ahead of him this week.
Tim McCullough
FantasyPros
 Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - SIT - Watson took some big hits against the Cowboys in Week 5, resulting in a ribs injury. He play through the injury last week, but he was extremely ineffective. If he takes a big hit to the mid-section in Week 7, it could take him out of the game. Watson isn't worth the risk against an elite Jacksonville defense.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Watson struggled last week against Buffalo, and now has just a 9-to-7 TD-to-INT ratio on the season. Now he'll have to travel to Jacksonville to face a Jaguars D that may have something to prove after getting eaten up by Dak Prescott last week. It's not an ideal spot for a rebound, so Watson is hard to trust as a QB1 this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 This was supposed to be a game we looked forward to, but Watson is dinged-up and the Jaguars defense has been demolished the last two weeks. It's now the story of who can get back on track the quickest. After totaling at least 36 rushing yards in each of the first five games, Watson was held to just two rushing yards against the Bills last week, leaving us to wonder just how much this chest injury was bothering him. The Jaguars are going to bring the pressure and although they didn't look like it last week, they're still one of the elite defenses in the game who'll be back at home. Dak Prescott was the second quarterback over the last two years who's posted top-12 numbers against them and the first quarterback who posted more than 22 fantasy points. Considering Prescott had failed to score more than 18 points in any game this year prior to that one, we're going to accept it as an outlier to the Jaguars defense. Prior to that, the Jaguars had held Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes to a combined 547 yards and two touchdowns. If Watson can't run, he's got issues against this defense. He's also known to throw the ball up to Hopkins and Fuller in one-on-one situations, though that may not be wise against Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye. Watson is just a QB2 whose floor is lower than we thought given his lack of mobility at the moment.
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. Watson is not a very good play this week, the Jaguars D has struggled the last two weeks, but they are at home and the Texans offense only scored 13 points last week at home against the Buffalo Bills.
