    Each week, we're going to go beyond the boxscore and dive into the most interesting situations from around the NFL and discuss how they might shape the Fantasy landscape for the upcoming week. My hope is that you leave this article feeling at least a little bit more confident in the reasoning behind your lineup decisions.

    I'm going to give advice in this space and hope to be right more than wrong, but most importantly, I hope that you leave these columns with a clearer and fuller understanding of what goes into my rankings here on SportsLine. I'm excited to peel back the curtain a bit and invite you to start thinking about your lineup decisions in a less linear way. We're trying to move away from this player ranks two spots higher than this player, so he's the one to start – lineup decisions are almost always more dynamic than that!

    I do my best to create space to answer lineup advice questions on Twitter throughout the week, you might catch me there. My goal is to be more present and available to help SportsLine members with their Fantasy lineup decisions this season. I can't get to every question, though, so I hope that these tiers and comparisons help you feel more confident in your start/sit decisions. Below, you'll find the situations that stood out the most to me when making important lineup decisions.

    If you're starting your Fantasy football draft research or scouring the Internet for Fantasy rankings, you need to see what SportsLine's highly-rated expert Jacob Gibbs has to say. Gibbs uses a data-driven approach that has helped him consistently provide accurate rankings at every position. He has proven to be one of the nation's most accurate Fantasy rankers in recent years -- posting the eighth-most accurate results over the past three seasons, according to Fantasy Pros. Gibbs had the fourth-most accurate rankings in Week 4 and ranks 11th out of nearly 200 experts in terms of rankings accuracy on the year.

    Now, Gibbs has projected every Fantasy-relevant player's stats and shared his findings for Week 6 of the 2023 season. In Week 1's lineup advice column, SportsLine users were advised to start Puka Nacua. Leading up to Week 2, Gibbs predicted a huge week from Nico Collins, and he also advised trusting Nacua and Kyren Williams even in a matchup against the 49ers. Week 3's Beyond the Boxscore highlighted Tank Dell before his 5-145-1 explosion against the Jaguars. In Week 4, Gibbs predicted Khalil Herbert getting his season on track due to the splits between Herbert and Roschon Johnson when the Bears had previously been in neutral game scripts. Week 5's Beyond the Boxscore identified Arizona's strange schematic tendencies as presenting a perfect bounce-back spot for Joe Burrow and the Bengals. In Week 6, Rhamondre Stevenson was highlighted as a bounce-back candidate and went on to finish sixth at the RB position in Fantasy scoring.

    One player Gibbs is especially high on in Week 7: Jaxon Smith-Njigba. Seattle used tons of two-tight end sets early in the year to offset the loss of both starting offensive tackles, but with Charles Cross back in Week 6, the Seahawks used far more three-receiver sets and Smith-Njigba saw a season-high route participation. It's been a slow start for the rookie, but Gibbs believes that the Week 7 matchup lines up perfectly for a breakout game from the slot receiver. Gibbs is also in rolling with a pair of exciting young pass-catchers! You NEED to see Gibbs' analysis before you lock in your lineup.

    So who are the best under-the-radar players to start in Week 7? And which pass-catchers can you trust? Join SportsLine here to see Jacob Gibbs' weekly lineup advice, all from one of the nation's most accurate experts as graded by FantasyPros!
