FanDuel Week 7 Lineup: Best Player Picks In DFS Fantasy Football


Tired of losing in your season-long fantasy football league each week? It’s time to take your love for fantasy to FanDuel, where you can set a new lineup each week and win prizes.

Check out our Week 7 FanDuel lineup below before you make your weekly player selections.

Quarterback: Kirk Cousins, Washington Redskins ($7,300)
Cousins has a favorable matchup against a Detroit Lions defense that’s allowed a league-high 17 touchdown passes and the fifth-most passing yards per attempt (8.2).

Running Backs: Spencer Ware, Kansas City Chiefs ($7,000); Matt Jones, Washington Redskins ($7,300)
Ware had 131 rushing yards and a touchdown last week, and he should have another quality performance Sunday against the New Orleans Saints’ 26th-ranked run defense. Jones has tallied 100-plus yards and a touchdown in two of the last three games, and he’s facing a Lions defense giving up the third-most rushing yards per carry (4.7).

Wide Receivers: Odell Beckham Jr., New York Giants ($8,600); Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints ($5,700); Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons ($9,200)
Beckham is averaging more than 10 targets and 96.8 receiving yards per game, making him a very safe bet in DFS.

Thomas is a great value play after hauling in a touchdown in three straight games. His chemistry with Saints quarterback Drew Brees has come a long way since Week 1.

Jones is averaging 109.3 receiving yards per game with a total of four touchdowns through six contests, and you know Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan looks his way quite often.

Tight End: Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings ($5,400)
Rudolph has seen seven or more targets and scored a touchdown in three of the last four games. He’s become one of Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford’s go-to pass-catchers.

Kicker: Adam Vinatieri, Indianapolis Colts ($4,900)
Vinatieri is the highest-scoring kicker on a points-per-game basis in FanDuel by more than two points.

Defense: Green Bay Packers ($4,600)
The Packers’ defense looked bad against the Dallas Cowboys last week, but they have a much more favorable matchup in Week 7 against a Chicago Bears offense that ranks 31st in points scored and T-28th in third-down conversion.
