Marvin Jones, Detroit Lions
Just a 4 touchdown day on 10 catches for 93 yards, no big deal. An absolute monster day that led to disappointment for Kenny Golladay owners. The bad news for Marvin Jones owners is that you just saw his best game of the year, so don’t trust this too much. Based on his other stat lines this year Marvin is at best a bye week fill in.
Latavius Murray, New Orleans Saints
For any of you that listen to the podcast you know that I have professed my love Latavius Murray more than a few times. The truth is that he has been a monumental disappointment this year. I really thought that he would take over the Mark Ingram role that was vacated, and that just hasn’t been the case. But, with Alvin Kamara missing this game Latavius had 119 rushing yards, 5 catches for 31 yards and 2 touchdowns. As long as Kamara is out I think that Latavius is a borderline top 12 running back and needs to be started every single week.
Hunter Henry, Los Angeles Chargers
He’s back, in a big way. Henry followed up a huge 100 yard and 2 touchdown week 6 with 6 catches for 97 yards this week. After the injury early in the year it seems like owners have totally forgotten about Hunter Henry, but the dude has shown that he is an absolute stud and a locked and loaded every week starter at the tight end position.
Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers
The future Hall of Famer just hasn’t looked like himself this year, but that all changed in week 7. 429 yards with 5 passing touchdowns and a 6th touchdown on the ground, all without his best pass catcher Davante Adams. This team still wants to run the ball more than ever before, and Davante isn’t back yet, but this was an encouraging game and bodes well for Rodgers future fantasy value.
Darren Waller, Oakland Raiders
7 grabs for 126 yards and 2 touchdowns. Waller just keeps doing it. On the season he has 44 catches for 485 yards and 2 touchdowns through 6 games, a pace of 117 catches, 1,293 yards and 5 touchdowns. Not too shabby of a year for a guy that you grabbed at the end of drafts.
