Fantasy football rankings, Week 7: Quarterbacks

The SB Nation Fantasy Staff projects the top performing fantasy quarterbacks for Week 7.

Just when fantasy owners think they have quarterbacks pegged, weeks like Week 6 happen, where fantasy owners have to kick themselves for not starting players like Joe Flacco, Colin Kaepernick and Tom Brady. Each of the aforementioned has been susceptible to killing lineups rather than saving them, and they will have to be examined closely as Week 7 approaches.

The usual suspects top the list once again, but it's a real possibility that we see the likes of Jay Cutler and Philip Rivers hovering around the top five for the rest of the season. It's at least that way for this week. And that Cam Newton guy? Yeah. His legs are back, and so is he. Start him.

Fantasy Rankings: QB RB WR TE D/ST

Brady was back at practice for the New England Patriots on Tuesday. He was one of the more notable players to pop up on last week's injury report. He got in a limited session, but will be good to go for Thursday Night Football against the New York Jets. The only other notable injury news relates to Robert Griffin III. RG3 is out with a dislocated ankle, and the latest news has him potentially returning as early as Week 8, according to CSN Washington. This situation will likely change by the week, so keep an eye on that if you have stashed RG3.

Week 7 has the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers on bye. That means no Nick Foles, and no Mike Glennon.
