Whether you are turning over every stone in pursuit of the perfect DFS lineup, looking for a tiebreaker in a difficult start/sit decision in season-long leagues, or simply loading up on obscure stats to reference in an attempt to impress your fellow nerdy football friends while watching the games this Sunday, you are in the right place. SportsLine Fantasy analyst Jacob Gibbs spends his days sifting through advanced stats for every player and every team in order to properly prepare you with the most important information for the upcoming week of football.

Gibbs' Fantasy football draft rankings were the eighth-most accurate in the nation across the 2018-20 seasons, per FantasyPros, and he is back with weekly Fantasy rankings and a DFS Helper for SportsLine users. In 2018, Gibbs predicted Patrick Mahomes' Fantasy explosion. In 2019, he projected big-time breakouts for Lamar Jackson and Chris Godwin, while also identifying Darren Waller as the top late-round tight end pick. Last season, Gibbs was one of the few analysts who ranked Davante Adams as Fantasy's WR1 entering the season, and he was all over the breakout seasons for Calvin Ridley and Antonio Gibson. Anyone who has followed Gibbs advice over the past three seasons has been well on their way to a league title.

Now, Gibbs has analyzed every angle for each Week 7 matchup and shared the 50 stats that stand out as the most noteworthy for this week's set of games. 

One matchup Gibbs is especially excited for in Week 7: Atlanta receiver Calvin Ridley against a Miami defensive scheme that uses man coverage and brings the blitz at near league-high rates. Ridley has excelled against man coverage throughout his career, and he's who Matt Ryan has leaned upon when blitzed. If Matt Ryan can stand in and deliver against Miami's blitz, Ridley has the ceiling to eclipse 200 receiving yards against a struggling Dolphins secondary.

Which star receiver is a risky play in his Week 7 matchup? And which running back is primed for a bounceback performance? ... Join SportsLine here to see Jacob Gibbs' 50 Stats to Know for Week 7, all from one of the nation's most accurate experts as graded by FantasyPros!
