Fantasy Friday Week 7: Start'Em, Sit'Em

After a thrilling Week 6, that featured some amazing Fantasy performances from Noah Touré, Glen Toogna, and Zach Edwards, we have everything you need to move up the leaderboard this weekend. Make sure to login every week and check on where you are in the leaderboard standing of thousands of Fantasy manager players across the globe. 

With that out of the way, let me, Felix Pahl, take a look at some key players to consider in your lineup this week!

Start’Em Week 7

Jakeb Sullivan, Berlin Thunder, (3,220,000 GC)

Jakeb Sullivan is the passing leader and second in passing touchdowns and will be the go-to guy in the upcoming game. In week three, these teams already played, and Sullivan scored 31.1 points. I don’t see why it should be different this time.

Sandro Platzgummer, Frankfurt Galaxy, (2,420,000 GC)

To take some pressure off Luke Zahradka and reduce turnovers, Platzgummer will have a more important role in the Galaxy's offense. In the last game against the Sea Devils, he scored 21.4 points, showing what he can do. Against the Madrid Bravos on Saturday, he should perform similarly and help Zahradka lead the Galaxy to victory.

Malik Stanley, Munich Ravens, (2,700,000 GC)

The bye week gave Stanley time to learn more of the Ravens' playbook and build team chemistry. Together with his quarterback Chad Jeffries, Stanley will exploit the weaknesses in the Dragons' defense and have an outstanding game, continuing his strong performance from the first game.

Sit’Em Week 7

QB Javarian Smith, Hamburg Sea Devils, (3,000,000 GC)

Javarian Smith has had a solid season with an average of 20.50 points. However, both games that boosted this average were against the Prague Lions, while games against playoff contenders were below average. This isn’t necessarily Smith’s fault but rather the whole offense, which is traveling to Paris with the second-weakest rushing offense and yards gained. The Paris Musketeers have the strongest passing defense, which already controlled the Sea Devils' offense in their first meeting. I expect a similar game, with the Sea Devils' offense clearly showing its limits.

RB Tobias Bonatti, Raiders Tirol, (3,060,000 GC)

In their first matchup, the Vienna Vikings stood out with their excellent defensive performance. Overall, the Vikings' defense is outstanding and will, in my opinion, have an answer to the strong rushing game of the Raiders, preventing Bonatti from continuing his strong form.

WR Willie Patterson, Madrid Bravos, (2,470,000 GC)

Patterson has played at a high level this season, but his limits were shown in the last game. The Frankfurt Galaxy have two very strong defensive backs in Divine Buckrham and Jamalcolm Liggins, with at least one always covering Patterson. To give their quarterback Steven Duncan more confidence after last week’s game against Rhein Fire, I expect the Bravos to focus more on the rush, which means Patterson might not get many targets.
