Before setting your Week 7 Fantasy football lineups, you need to see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, the model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. And the model was closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it best pinpointed where every player would finish each week. That could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.
Last week, the model was high on Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston. The result: Winston exploded for 395 passing yards and four touchdowns against the Falcons. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge week.
Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its latest Week 7 Fantasy football rankings.
One player the model loves this week: 49ers running back Matt Breida. He leads the NFL with 6.8 yards per carry among featured backs and gets a date with a Rams defense that's allowing 4.7 yards per carry and 40 receptions to enemy backs.
And a massive shocker: Saints quarterback Drew Brees stumbles big-time this week against the Ravens and finishes well outside the top 15. He's a player to bench in Week 7.
The model is also calling for a surprising quarterback you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 5 of the rankings. This pick could be the difference between winning BIG and going home with nothing. You absolutely need to see it before you lock in your lineups.
So who should you sit and start this week? And where does every player stack up?... Join SportsLine right now to get Fantasy football rankings for every single position, and see which shocking QB finishes in the top 5 this week, all from the model that out-performed experts big time last season!
