8 things to know for week 7 fantasy football

I put 30+ hours of weekly research into a lineup setting resource called the Heat Map that analyzes the matchup and overall outlook for every single player, in every single game, every single week.

Here are 8 interesting nuggets I've found so far this week:

🏈 Josh Downs had 12 and 8 targets in the two games that Gardner Minshew started. He had fewer than 8 in each of the other 4 games that Minshew didn’t.

🏈 Just 2 WRs in 5 games have been able to reach even just 10 PPR points against the Browns, and only 1 was able to get past 12.

🏈 Terry McLaurin has NEVER scored fewer than 13 PPR points in 7 career games against the Giants, averaging 19 PPR points per game against them with 24+ PPR points in 3 of 7 games.

🏈 TWO of Saquon Barkley’s seven best career games came against Washington, including the best game of his career (26 touches—including 4 targets/catches—for 279 yards and 2 TDs—43.9 PPR points).

🏈 The Patriots are even more difficult on WRs than they might appear. They’re holding WRs to the 14th fewest PPR points per game which is only slightly subpar. That said, they've been particularly tough at the individual level where just 3 WRs in 6 games have been able to reach 15 PPR points against the Pats, none of which were able to get to 18, a list that includes AJ Brown, DeVonta Smith, Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle, Garrett Wilson, CeeDee Lamb, Chris Olave, Michael Thomas, Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers.

🏈 The Lions have allowed the 3rd most catches, 4th most yards, 14th most TDs AND 5th most PPR points per game to TEs, BUT... somehow after all that, they have not allowed a single TE to reach 10 PPR points against them.

🏈 The Rams are technically allowing the 13th most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs. That said, they’ve actually held QBs to the 13th fewest passing yards and FEWEST TD passes. They only look like a good matchup because they’ve also allowed 30.67 QB rushing yards per game and 0.5 QB rushing TDs per game

🏈 This WAS on the list prior to last night... Going into Thursday Night Football, the Saints are the only defense in the NFL that has not yet allowed a single touchdown to a running back.

There's A LOT more where that came from inside the Heat Map every single week.

If you'd like access to a week-winning resource that your friends don't even know exist, subscription costs less than one beer or Starbucks per month!
