The NFL heads into Week 7, and we add to the degree of difficulty for daily fantasy football. Last week marked the first week of four teams going on bye, and this week we get again. However, this week removes some bigger names with a broader mix of fantasy talent getting the week off.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns, Carolina Panthers, and Pittsburgh Steelers are all on bye. This means sidelined players include JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Conner, Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Ronald Jones, and of course Christian McCaffrey, among many others.
The injury report was not quite as busy coming out of Week 6, but we still have some big names to watch. Emmanuel Sanders and Sammy Watkins are question marks if you’re considering them for Showdown conte. Thursday Night Football Showdown contests. The biggest name up for debate is Saquon Barkley, who is close to returning from a high ankle sprain.
The week will feature plenty more news, injury and otherwise, and we’ll be tracking it all here. Feel free to bookmark this story stream and return for the latest daily fantasy football news and analysis.
