2017 Power Rankings - Week 7

Rank (LW) Logo Team Record Rating Comment
1 (2) SD 5-1 97.47 San Diego is the hottest team in the league riding a 5-game win streak. They led the league in scoring with 141 points and had POTW honors with Kirk Cousins. They have found success with their 14th round pick of Cameron Brate who has scored a touchdown in 4 consecutive weeks.
2 (1) LA 4-2 95.21 Los Angeles felt another bite of the injury bug. Jameis Winston left the game and never came back due to a shoulder injury. His future is still positive as he is considered day-to-day. Jordan Howard is a work horse getting 36 carries for the Bears in their overtime win over the Ravens.
3 (3) ANC 3-3 88.52 The Ice Knights have matched their longest win streak with their current losing streak, which is 3. The Ice Knights are a .500 team despite being one of two teams to have scored more than 700 points for the season. Their WR duo had a bad day at the office combining for 2 points.
4 (4) DET 3-3 82.82 The champs won again to bring them back to .500. The Devils eclipsed the 110 point mark for the 4th time this season and for the 3rd time in a row. The biggest question is whether Ezekiel Elliott will be suspended or not. The latest of this saga was he had to serve his suspension but he is allowed to play in week 7.
5 (7) SF 3-3 80.92 The Rattlesnakes have turned the corner in the past 3 weeks. They went from averaging 90 points per contest to 130 points per contest. San Fran's first two draft picks accounted for 64 points. It was also the first week where their 7th rounder, Doug Martin, got the nod with a decent 14 point day.
6 (8) TB 5-1 80.65 The Blizzard finally had the look of a team at the top. Tampa Bay had a 50 point carryover from McCoy and Green which set the foundation for a good week. The Texans D had 22 points including a TD and safety and Tucker had a 12 point day. Oh, and Ebron was shut out for the third time this season.
7 (6) ND 3-3 76.47 The Nimrods was the first team to score over 100 points versus the Diamonds. They picked up the victory with a 3-headed monster of Wentz, Brown, and Succup. Wentz and Brown should not be shockers, but Succup was a surprise. The kicker booted 5 field goals and ended the day with 22 points, falling one point short of the all-time list.
8 (5) DEN 4-2 75.13 Ouch! Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone and is likely done for the season. It's a good thing that the Diamonds started off the season 4-0, otherwise this team would be done for. Rodgers left the game in the 1st quarter with zero points. Denver has already gone to the waiver wire to find their QB because Bortles wasn't the answer.
9 (10) CHI 1-5 62.85 It's hard to be optimistic with a 1-5 record but the Triumph may have found the answer they were looking for in Adrian Peterson. AP was traded from the Saints to the Cardinals and dazzled in his Arizona debut. His 35-point day was squandered rididng the bench. And yes, had he been started, then Chicago would have won.
10 (9) SH 2-4 62.21 The Hooligans find themselves outside of the playoff picture for the third time this season. Sterling Heights is struggling because of a super bowl hangover. The Falcons blew a 25-point lead and lost their swag. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones scored 216/131 last year at this time, but have scored 106/58 this year.
11 (11) FW 2-4 54.97 It's really difficult to understand fantasy football sometimes. In week 5, the Pistons knocked off the last undefeated team in the league. In week 6, the Pistons lost to the last winless team in the league. What makes things even more confusing is that the scored more in their week 6 loss (98) than their week 5 win (96).
12 (12) ATL 1-5 53.69 Atlanta is back on the winning wagon. It wasn't a flashy performance but getting that first win is all that matters. Their LA Rams Defense led the team in scoring with 21 points benefiting from 2 TDs. Alex Smith had a quiet Jesters debut with 19 points as he replaced Big Ben.
