NFL Week 7 DFS Lineup Strategy

Bank on the plus matchups this week as the Ravens and Commanders playmakers are solid lineup bets while Tyler Lockett and Rondale Moore should round out your lineup in a game that should have some downfield fireworks. 

Check out the rest of our DFS lineup strategy for NFL Week 7 below. Good luck this weekend!

QB Lamar Jackson (BAL) Salary: $7,600

Detroit is bottom of the league in FPPG allowed, completions, attempts, and yards to the quarterback position.

With a newfound elite receiving duo in Zay Flowers and Mark Andrews, the Ravens' offense is clicking with Lamar Jackson as potent as ever on the ground.

With over 320 rush yards and 4 rush TDs thus far, expect an elite dual-threat performance against a shaky defense in Week 7 for the former MVP.

RB Kenneth Walker III (SEA) Salary: $7,000

It’s been an incredible start to the season for Seattle’s RB1, Kenneth Walker. Six TDs alongside a fantastic 4.16 YPC have propelled Walker into a fantasy RB1 role as Pete Caroll trusts in Walker to touch the ball about 20 times in each outing.

Facing an Arizona defense that has allowed points, especially to the running back position, expect KWIII to put up his second 100-yard outing.

RB Brian Robinson Jr. (WAS) Salary: $5,800

A second RB in our lineup with a fantastic matchup, Brian Robinson is a great play with a sub $6,000 salary against the Giants, who he torched for over 200 total yards at the end of last season.

With NYG still trying to find their identity on both sides of the ball, Bienemy’s offense is clicking with Brian Robinson as the focal point.

He’s gone for 10+ attempts in all but one game while securing 5 total TDs in just six outings.

WR Zay Flowers (BAL) Salary: $5,700

One of the two beneficiaries of Lamar Jackson lighting up the Lions' secondary, rookie wideout Zay Flowers is due for his best game of the season.

With Detroit sitting in the bottom half of the league in YPG, catches per game, and TDs per game allowed to the WR position, Flowers becomes a borderline WR1 this week after commanding 8+ targets in four games this season.

WR Terry McLaurin (WAS) Salary: $5,400

A low-risk, high-reward play, Terry McLaurin's past success against the Giants and his current hot streak of either 6 receptions or 50 yards in five out of six games this season leads us to believe there is a breakout game on the way for the talented wideout.

While not commanding the same red zone usage as normal, Bienemy has turned to McLaurin to still lead this team in targets as a top-tier playmaker.

Against a struggling Giants secondary, we think McLaurin is a solid WR1 this week.

WR Tyler Lockett (SEA) Salary: $6,000

Our downfield assassin this week is Tyler Lockett. While his status heading into Thursday night is questionable, the veteran wideout dominates against the Cardinals.

In 2022 he scored a TD against AZ, in 2021 had one game with 115 yards and another with 2 TDs. Finally, in 2020, he broke out for 200 yards and 3 TDs post-bye week against the Cards.

While he’s had a slow start to this season, the downfield ability is still there as shown against the Bengals and Lions. Trust in Lockett to break down this Arizona secondary in a high-scoring affair.

TE Mark Andrews (BAL) Salary: $5,700

Our second Ravens playmaker in Week 7’s DFS lineup is Mark Andrews. Andrews faces a Lions defense allowing a league-high 15.3 TRG/11.3 REC/131.7 YDS per game to the tight end position.

That is the most in the league… by a landslide. This could turn into one of those 100-yard, 2-TD weeks for the top tight end who hit the century mark three times last season.

FLX Rondale Moore (ARI) Salary: $3,500

Moore had a quiet Week 6 in the first game with James Conner on IR, but with a 66% snap percentage, the past two weeks could be a huge sleeper against one of the weaker downfield defenses in Seattle.

Gannon is a huge fan of the speedy playmaker who should get opportunities in the air and on the ground. Last season, Rondale had 41 receptions for over 400 yards in just six games.

When healthy, he’s an impact player against poorer secondaries. In a plus matchup, Moore is a solid flex play for Arizona and your DFS Lineup.

D/ST Browns Salary: $3,300

The best defense in the league takes on Gardner Minshew after a week with four turnovers against a lesser defense in Jacksonville.

While we won’t expect four turnovers in this one, Cleveland has allowed over 17 points just once this season and played the 49ers extremely tough in Week 6.

With the best ground defense, expect this unit to put the clamps on JT, Moss, and the Colts.
