I could explain my lack of confidence in Aaron Rodgers, along with the entire Green Bay passing game, by way of my Week 7 fantasy quarterback rankings. But I'll save that breakdown for the wide receiver rankings.
Instead, I'd like to discuss Joe Burrow, who unlike the Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR) cracks my top five for this week.
Burrow got off to a bit of "meh" start this season, failing to complete two-thirds of his passes over the first four games. However, over the last two, he has completed 68.6 and 75.7 percent of his passes. He is also coming off his first 3-TD/300-yard effort this past week.
Besides coming off his best game of the year, this week he is facing the Falcons, who have given up the seventh-most fantasy points to QBs this season.
So yeah, I've got Burrow as a top-5 fantasy option this week. See below for the rest of my Week 7 QB rankings.
Teams on bye: Buffalo, Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota, Philadelphia
