Wide Receiver Rankings-Who to Start Week 7 in Fantasy Football

With 6 teams on a bye, it’s even more important to have strong backups like Tampa’s Mike Williams (19). Photo by Rob Foldy-US PRESSWIRE

“Go deep” has a difference meaning this week as fantasy owners are forced to test their team’s depth in a week with six teams on a bye. The Falcons, Eagles, Broncos, and Chiefs all have valuable wide receivers that owners need to replace in their lineup this week. This list of the top 40 should help you make your decisions.

Joining me in this week’s rankings were staff members Steve Copps (SC) and Jeffrey Littrell (JL). Our rankings have been combined to come up with a solid composite ranking which should give you a good idea who to pick up and start this week. NR stands for not rated and counts as 45 for averaging purposes.
