FF Pickups WEEK 7


Another week and some more starting RBs went down with injuries. DeMarco Murray is out this week and possibly a lot longer, T-Rich is also out, but I expect him to be back sooner. The first week with new starters in Green Bay and Arizona have shown us who is going to be the backs going forward. We know now that Green and Powell are the ones to roster, starting them is a different story.

Here are the players to pick up this week followed by a recipe for Salisbury Steak that is sure to be a hit.

If you need to pick up a starting QB, TE, or DST, you may be in serious trouble. There are not too many options. If for some reason, someone dropped the likes of Locker, Keller, and the Vikings, grab one.

Pickups of the week (by position)



Felix Jones

DeMarco Murray hobbled off the field with a foot injury midway through Sunday’s loss to Baltimore. He checked back into the game after halftime, but was obviously limited and was only given one carry. In his place, Felix Jones had 18 for 92 and a score. In Week 7, Jones will get the start against a very accommodating Carolina defense that has allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing backs. Should Murray miss closer to a month, Jones would draw the Giants, Falcons and Eagles in subsequent weeks.



Vick Ballard

After getting down early to the Jets, Indianapolis pretty much abandoned the running game and effectively kept Ballard on the shelf. The rookie flashed some big time potential during the preseason, but had no opportunity to showcase his talent in Week 6. he has a better shot at 15-18 touches this week against a more suspect Browns front seven on Sunday. Unfortunately, he probably remains a short term solution as Donald Brown is due to make his return in Week 8 or 9.





Brandon Gibson

With Danny Amendola gone for at least a month, the Rams desperately needed Brandon Gibson to step up and embrace an alpha role. He delivered in Miami, catching seven of his nine targets for a team high 91 yards. With St. Louis expected to stay airborne versus the Packers and Patriots over the next two weeks, Gibson will undoubtedly see a high volume of passes thrown his way.



Donnie Avery

Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne both had poor performances against the Jets secondary, but Avery was still able to find his openings. As a number two, Avery has been a remarkably consistent option this. His star is back on the rise and he is a great candidate should you need bye week WR or flex support over the next few games.



Josh Gordon

I recommended you pick up the rookie in Cleveland, as he has shown the ability to sprint past defenders on go routes with a pair of deep touchdowns the past two weeks. The matchup is right this week against a Colts defense. He may be a one or two week fill in for byes as your FLEX.



Domenik Hixon

Back to full health, Hixon is locked in as the No. 3 receiver after making a series of tough catches at San Francisco in Week 6. With Hakeem Nicks clearly playing at less than full strength, Hixon could be the second-most targeted receiver again in an ideal matchup versus a Redskins defense allowing the most fantasy points to opposing receivers.



Stephen Hill

Returning from a hamstring injury, Hill played just 18 snaps versus the Colts, posting a 3/23/1 line. With another week to get closer to full health, Hill will soon vie with Jeremy Kerley for the No. 1 receiver role on a team likely to rack up garbage-time production the rest of the way.
