Fantasy Football 2013 Positional Rankings: Week 7

So through the first five weeks of the fantasy football season, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham had pretty much been setting the pace. So what happened in Week 6? Manning was held in check by the Jaguars, Brees had an average game against the Patriots while Graham has held without a catch for the first time this season.

Fantasy Football 2013 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 7

St. Louis just missed making Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 7 defense/special teams rankings, but that doesn't mean we can't applaud the Rams for their performance last week. The Rams added to the Texans' woes after racking up five quarterback sacks and holding them to just 13 points. The 38-13 convincing win also featured a total of four takeaways and two defensive scores, including a record 98-yard interception return by St. Louis rookie linebacker Alec Ogletree.

Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings: Week 7

Stephen Gostkowski leads the NFL with 16 made field goals
Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings: Week 7

Matt Prater is No. 1 on Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings for Week 7, but no one has made more field goals this season than Stephen Gostkowski. This duo is not only 1-2 in our rankings, but also in fantasy points this season. The interesting thing is that they have done this in different ways. Prater leads all kickers thanks to his league-high 34 PATs kicking for the Broncos' prolific offense. Gostkowski, on the other hand, is 16-of-17 on field goal attempts, as the Patriots haven't scored as many touchdowns this season compared to last.

Fantasy Football 2013 Tight End Rankings: Week 7

Vernon Davis had a monster first half alone last week against Arizona
Fantasy Football 2013 Tight End Rankings: Week 7

New Orleans is on bye in Week 7, so that means no Jimmy Graham atop Athlon Sports' fantasy football tight end rankings, probably the only week he will not be at No. 1. Instead, Tony Gonzalez, the future Hall of Famer, gets our vote.

Fantasy Football 2013 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 7

Brandon Marshall caught two touchdown passes in his last game and could do the same on Sunday against Washington
Fantasy Football 2013 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 7

Wide receiver injuries have been a big storyline in recent weeks, and their impact can clearly be seen by looking at Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 7 rankings. Randall Cobb will miss at least eight weeks after sustaining a fractured fibula in last week's win in Baltimore. Cobb has been placed on injured reserve, but is eligible to return in time to play in Week 15.

Fantasy Football 2013 Running Back Rankings: Week 7

Knowshon Moreno is the No. 4 running back in fantasy and leads the NFL in rushing TDs
Fantasy Football 2013 Running Back Rankings: Week 7

While the top of Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 7 running back rankings includes the usual suspects, there's one guy who has definitely exceeded preseason expectations. Knowshon Moreno, somewhat of an afterthought after Denver drafted Montee Ball in the second round, has not only emerged as the Broncos' No. 1 back, he's become an every-week fantasy starter.

Fantasy Football 2013 Quarterback Rankings: Week 7

Matt Ryan will have to go the rest of the season with a depleted wide receiving corps
Fantasy Football 2013 Quarterback Rankings: Week 7

Peyton Manning may have had more turnovers than touchdowns last week, but that's not nearly enough to remove him from the top spot on Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 7 quarterback rankings. For one, even with the slight hiccup against the Jaguars, he's still the leading fantasy scorer this season by a wide margin.

Fantasy Football 2013 Positional Rankings: Week 6

Fantasy Football 2013 Positional Rankings: Week 6

Regardless of what happens in Week 6, it will be tough to match some of the impressive performances from last week. Denver and Dallas went toe-to-toe with each other for four quarters before the Broncos came out victorious thanks to a field goal as time expired. Although Tony Romo's interception helped seal the Cowboys' fate, he also threw for 506 yards and five touchdowns.

Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings: Week 6

Mason Crosby has made all nine of his field goal attempts this season
Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings: Week 6

Mason Crosby is not No. 1 on Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings for Week 6, but you still have to give the Packers' kicker credit for his early-season turnaround. Last season, Crosby made only 21 of 33 field goal attempts, which translates to a success rate of 63.6 percent. That was lowest in the NFL of any kicker with more than 12 FG attempts. Crosby's struggles were so concerning, that the Packers brought in competition for the job during training camp.

Fantasy Football 2013 Def/Special Teams Rankings: Week 6

NaVorro Bowman and the 49ers' defense has been at its best in the last two games
Fantasy Football 2013 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 6

Even though Seattle lost last week in Indianapolis, the Seahawks are still No. 1 on Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 6 defense/special teams rankings because they are back home and are facing a Tennessee offense that is starting its backup quarterback (Ryan Fitzpatrick). The Titans' DST is not necessarily a bad play this week either. Not only are the Titans a top-five fantasy DST entering Week 6, the unit has done a good job getting to the quarterback (16 sacks) and forcing turnovers (6 INTs, 5 fumbles).
