We provide Week 7 NFL fantasy football projections for wide receivers courtesy of numberFire.com.
We're back for Week 7 of the 2012 NFL season. Thursday Night Football got the week going with the 49ers and Seahawks in a game that was not pretty in the passing department. The 49ers got one passing touchdown to a tight end, but otherwise this game was all about the rushing game and defense.
The wrap of Thursday Night Football means we can get ready for the rest of the Week 7 slate. Make sure and double check your lineups with the Falcons, Broncos, Chiefs, Dolphins, Eagles and Chargers taking the week off.
We have been providing you with rankings all week long, but as Sunday dawns, it would be helpful to have some projections as well. Our Week 7 wide receiver rankings are based on our pool of knowledge and often a bit of gut instinct. To improve your chances this year, we are going to provide Sunday projections courtesy of the folks at numberFire. numberFire uses series of mathematical models, to break down the action and figure out who exactly is performing well.They use the power of predictive and regressive modeling to more accurately project future performance.
numberFire claims a higher predictive rate than the major companies (ESPN, CBS, Yahoo!). However, as with anything in fantasy football, we at SB Nation Fantasy view numberFire as one more weapon in your arsenal to claim victory. The numbers can help over the long term, but there are enough variables week-to-week that multiple sources can provide great value.
