Best: Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals
DK: $6,200 | FD: $7,200
Burrow has quietly become one of the most consistent players in fantasy football and DFS. The 2020 first overall pick has scored 20-plus FanDuel points in his past three games and over 18.5 FanDuel points in five of his past six.
His consistency is a huge draw ahead of Week 7, but his upside in this game is even higher than usual. The Baltimore Ravens defense is decent, but it is given up the the third-most explosive passing plays through six weeks (42) and ranks 25th in explosive pass percentage (16.8%). They aren’t good against explosive passes of 15-plus yards, which has been an area of strength for this Bengals passing attack so far.
Joe Burrow has 4 touchdown passes of 30+ air yards this season, most in the NFL. All of them have been thrown to Ja'Marr Chase.
Burrow had zero such completions as a rookie.

Worst: Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans
DK: $6,400 | FD: $7,600
Tannehill is expected to be rostered in around 3.3% of lineups this week, according to PFF’s rostership projections. He’s got a great matchup against the Chiefs, but the Titans quarterback has only topped 20-plus fantasy points once this season (Week 3) and has scored fewer than 14 points in the past two games.
The Chiefs present a fruitful opportunity to score points galore, but they’re every bit as terrible against the run — and the Titans always prefer to ride Derrick Henry before resorting to the pass. This matchup feels like a trap, particularly after King Henry’s recent performances. Tannehill is an easy fade until proven otherwise.
