Fantasy Football Week 7: Starts and sits, sleepers and busts for every game – CBS Sports

Looking for some lineup advice? You’ve come to the right place. Week 7 brings us four more byes, and the most impactful ones of the season with Christian McCaffrey and the receiving options for Carolina out, Chris Godwin and Mike Evans off for Tampa, Nick Chubb and the rest of the Browns resting and Pittsburgh and their less-explosive but still-notable offense rounding it out. 

With all those Fantasy-relevant names on benches, you’ll have some tough decisions this week. Luckily, you can go through every game on the schedule right here to find out who Dave is starting and sitting for all 28 teams on the Week 7 schedule.

Start Them: Seahawks DST

DSTs against the Ravens have posted 11-plus points in standard scoring leagues weekly since Week 4. That’s thanks to Lamar Jackson‘s five interceptions in Weeks 4 and 5 and a lucky kickoff-return for a touchdown by the Bengals in Week 6. It wouldn’t be surprising in the least to see Jackson lose a couple of turnovers in an unfriendly road environment. Visiting offenses have six turnovers in three games at Seattle this season. 

Sit Them: Ravens DST

Meanwhile, the Ravens DST will have the unenviable task of slowing down MVP candidate Russell Wilson. He hasn’t thrown an interception all year and had three in eight home games in 2018. Baltimore has given up just six passing scores all season but has played Andy Dalton, Steelers backup quarterbacks, Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray in his first NFL road start and the  Dolphins duo as part of their slate. Patrick Mahomes lit them up for three scores and so too can Wilson. That alone is enough to bench the Ravens — seeing them go on bye in Week 8 and then play the Patriots in Week 9 is enough to cut them.
