Fantasy Factor: Week 7

The Broncos racked up 359 total yards on offense and held the Jets to just 204 during their 31-17 win on Sunday. Here are the best photos from the Broncos??? victory.

It's Week 7 of the fantasy season, and trust issues are coming to the forefront. Some major injuries and sputtering or schizophrenic offenses have left many owners wondering who to trust. In Miami, the Dolphins have put Knowshon Moreno on injured reserve with a knee injury. Victor Cruz is done with a patellar tendon injury. And multiple offensive line injuries could affect the Cowboys and Browns. In New York, the Giants continue to deal with growing pains adjusting to a West Coast offense. The Steelers and Bucs look like total busts while the Patriots and Raiders show life. Can you trust these trends to continue as we near November and the playoff push?

The only player I would trust in Pittsburgh is LeVeon Bell. Tampa Bay has been more bad than good, both home and away. I would look away from these rosters for help. The Patriots are a tricky bunch, but the offense seems to be finding rhythm. We'll see if that's disrupted by Stevan Ridley's injury, who has a knee injury. Tim Wright is available in most leagues, if you need a tight end.

On the other side, the Cowboys' offense can be trusted. If you can survive Seattle, you have won me over, especially when you're as balanced as they are. Cleveland lost center Alex Mack to a leg injury, though his long-term season status is still up in the air as they wait on more test results. I would still play my Cleveland guys, but monitor the effect this could have leading up to November.

So here are some guys to target. You can trust some veteran quarterbacks in my mind. Joe Flacco, Alex Smith and Carson Palmer are all available in most leagues. Lamar Miller will be Moreno's replacement in Miami, but Ryan Tannehill needs to play like he did last week, and not like he has most of the season, if Miller is going to be effective. Atlanta's Antone Smith could help in a bye situation, and before jumping on a Denver or New England back, look to Minnesota's Jerick McKinnon as more of a feature back.

At wide receiver I dropped Brandon LaFell, and the Patriots receiver has put a couple of good games together. Malcolm Floyd has been a consistent big-play man for the Chargers, and Oakland's Andre Holmes seems to have some nice chemistry with Derek Carr, but that team can be up and down. Along with Tim Wright, the Browns' Jordan Cameron could be a big pickup at tight end.
