Fantasy Football: Week 7 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em, Picks And Busts

October 16, 2018
Some Notes:

• Atlanta Falcons wide receivers Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu, New York Jets receiver Quincy Enunwa, Oakland Raiders receiver Amari Cooper and Los Angeles Rams receiver Cooper Kupp left their Week 6 games with injuries. 

• Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen will miss some time with an elbow injury.

• The Le'Veon Bell watch continues for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

• The Indianapolis Colts signed wide receiver Dontrelle Inman. Are they so banged up at receiver that he could be a flier in fantasy?

• "Thursday Night Football:" Denver at Arizona

• "Monday Night Football:" New York Giants at Atlanta

• Week 7 Byes: Green Bay, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Seattle
