Anything can happen on any given Sunday, we all know that and the unpredictability of each game is what makes playing fantasy football so fun. But wouldn’t it be nice to look ahead and see what is going to happen in Week 8 of the NFL season?
As we look to close the book on Week 7 of the fantasy football season, let’s stop and take a moment of refection first. Let’s look back and see who had an outstanding fantasy game that helped propel your team to victory. And of course let’s look back in anger at those players you were depending on that simpl
Put your hand up if you had Gary Barnidge scoring more fantasy points last week than Rob Gronkowski? Anyone? How about Josh McCown throwing for 457 yards and two touchdowns? Or how about Adrian Peterson scoring zero fantasy points? Ah ha! Got you there! Peterson was on his bye last week.

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.
Tony Romo may not top Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 6 quarterback rankings, but you still have tip your hat to the Cowboys' signal-caller. As far as fantasy owners are concerned, the late interception is entirely forgivable considering the 506 yards and five touchdowns he put against Denver last week.
