The fantasy football season is well underway, as we continue with the Week 7 NFL slate this Sunday and Monday. Here we look at ten sleeper QBs to target.
As we enter the weekend, the fantasy football week got off to a slower start, with the Cleveland Browns and Denver Broncos playing to a 17-14 final. Still, there are plenty of opportunities left to get your week going in the right direction, and there are some quarterbacks out there who could be in for big days on Sunday or Monday.
Here we look at ten signal-callers that could be sleeper picks for your fantasy team in Week 7.
10 QB sleepers to target for fantasy football 2021 Week 7
10. Zach Wilson at New England
The old adage is that you never play a rookie quarterback against Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots, but Zach Wilson could have a favorable fantasy day in Week 7. He is coming off a bye week, and will likely do a better job of protecting the ball, something that has plagued him early on in his NFL career.
New England is still a tough draw, especially for a rookie quarterback, but they are nowhere near the perennial playoff team that we are used to under Belichick. If the Jets can get it going early, it could bring a lot of confidence to Wilson, and this offense, as a win against a division rival would certainly turn some heads on Sunday afternoon.
9. Joe Burrow at Baltimore
The Baltimore Ravens may be the best team in the AFC, as they are the only one-loss team in the entire conference, and have beaten some solid teams as of late. Still, they are a defense that has looked beatable at times this season, and on Sunday, they will be going up against a dynamic young offense in the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bengals have looked outstanding on offense this season, as quarterback Joe Burrow and former collegiate teammate Ja’Marr Chase are tearing up the league. Burrow is going to have another big game this weekend, and while the Ravens may win, it won’t be due to a lack of production by the second-year quarterback.
