Week 7 in the NFL presents several interesting fantasy football scenarios. Here’s who to add, drop, start, or sit in week 7.

Owning your fantasy football league means scouting the waiver wire, making those tough start ’em or sit ’em decisions, identifying favorable match-ups, and staying alert on injury news.
With plenty of action sure to go down in week 7, here’s a positional breakdown to help grab your team a “W” this week.
QB Stud: Jaguars Blake Bortles has posted several surprising stat lines since a rough opening game
A Jaguars player, relevant in fantasy? You read that right. Outside of week 1, Bortles has thrown for at least 242 yards and possesses a 12:5 TD-to-INT ratio. Look, the Jaguars as a team are going to find themselves losing more times than not, but this gives Bortles great value. They’ll be throwing often to get back in the game, and garbage time stats count all the same in fantasy. Bortles is a great backup option, just be wary of the tough Bills and Jets defenses he faces over the next few weeks.
QB dud: Peyton Manning just simply isn’t what he used to be
After throwing 3 more picks against Cleveland, Manning now leads the league with 10 INT’s. His age is showing, as he’s struggling to throw the ball down the field. If you have another QB on your bench, play the better match-up. Peyton is no longer an automatic start.
Honorable mention: The Bears Jay Cutler, who has thrown for at least 250 yards, 5 touchdowns and committed just 3 turnovers over the last 3 weeks.
