Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 7

The highlights have been few and far between so far this season for Allen Lazard and Green Bay's other wideouts.

Something is really wrong in Green Bay. And it is why I am so down on every Packer in my Week 7 fantasy wide receiver rankings.

I know Aaron Rodgers thinks the solution is to "simplify" the offense. Let's just say I don't see that happening and if so, with any kind of success.

Rodgers' receivers are having trouble getting open and even when they do, they are dropping passes far too often. They have the fifth-most dropped passes in the league. And that's assuming that Rodgers is getting the passes there. He's far too often had to throw the ball away or take a sack. Like Mark Cuban, for those reasons, I'm out.

Do I think things can improve with the Packer passing game? Sure. But until they do, I'm staying away from the likes of Allen Lazard, Romeo Doubs, and even Amari Rodgers, who will fill in for an injured Randall Cobb for the next several weeks.

To see who else I'm out on and who I'm in on, check out the rest of my Week 7 WR rankings.
