HOT OR NOT 🔥❄️ (D.Reed)

What’s Hot🔥
QB
Andy Dalton (Cleveland @ Cincinnati)
Dalton gets a golden matchup in week 7 against a Cleveland Browns defense, allowing 16 touchdown passes in their first 6 games!! In the two games against the Browns last season, Dalton was phenomenal, scoring 27 points in both meetings!! Andy Dalton may be set up to have his best statistical game of the year by far!!! Lock Dalton in for QB 1 numbers this week!!!
Kirk Cousins (Washington @ Detroit)
Kirk Cousins and company will travel to the Motor City to face a very inviting Lions secondary who were aired out by Case Keenum and the Rams last week!! In the first six games, no one has given up more points to opposing QBs than the Lions!!! This matchup has all the makings of an old-fashioned shootout. Therefore, I expect Cousins to put up major numbers this week!!! Beam “Captain Kirk” into your QB1 slot with confidence!!!
RB
Spencer Ware/Jamaal Charles (New Orleans @ Kansas City)
Kansas City head coach Andy Reid wants to put a cap on Jamaal Charles workload by splitting carries with Spencer Ware. Although Ware had a monster game and dominated Charles in touches last week, I expect things to even up between them both as Charles works his way back to rare form. The Saints rank 30th in the league against the rush, therefore you can’t go wrong with either RB in the Kanas City backfield this week!!!
Devonta Freeman (San Diego @ Atlanta)
Freeman had a poor outing last week on the road against a tough Seattle defense, rushing for 40 yds on 12 carries and catching 3 passes for a measly 10 yds. This week, he has a more favorable matchup against a San Diego defense allowing 9 TDs to running backs this season!!! Even while ceding carries to backfield mate Tevin Coleman, I look for Freeman to make a strong rebound at home this week!!!
WR 
Allen Robinson (Oakland @ Jacksonville)
Robinson is coming off his worse game of the season on the road against Chicago, catching 3 balls for only 49 yards!!! Many owners who drafted Robinson are somewhat displeased with his production thus far, as he’s failed to eclipse the 100-yard mark in any game this season. However, a date with Oakland at home this week may be just what the doctor ordered!!! I foresee Robinson getting back to WR1 numbers, while gaining over 100 yds this week against a poor Oakland secondary!!!
Amari Cooper (Oakland @ Jacksonville)
Early on, Cooper’s fellow wideout Michael Crabtree seemed to have more rapport with QB Derek Carr, but the tables have turned in the last few weeks where Cooper has been on fire with 267 yards and a score!! Crabtree seems to be more reliable in the redone but Cooper is still the clear cut number one guy in Oakland’s pass attack!! Up next is a meeting on the road against a porous Jags secondary where I see Cooper adding beautifully to his stellar stretch!!
TE
Hunter Henry (SanDiego @ Atlanta)
Since joining the lineup 4 games ago, Henry has caught 18 of 24 targets for 290 yards and 3 scores!!! At this point, we’ve seen enough from Henry to label his as a true TE 1!!! It seems as if Henry locked up the starting TE job over future Hall of Famer, Antonio Gates. Henry is up against an Atlanta defense who’s already surrendered 5 scores to TEs already this year!!! If you have Henry, play him and feel confident in doing so!!!
D/ST 
Baltimore (@ New York Jets)
The Jets have turned the ball over at least one time every game this season and that stat alone makes the Baltimore defense a very attractive stream in week 7!!!! Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched in favor of Geno Smith last week, but both QBs still had at least one turnover!!! If the Jets offense continues to struggle and turn the ball over, Baltimore could be a legit top 5 play this week!!!
What’s Not❄
QB 
Brock Osweiler (Houston @ Denver)
Statistics show that Osweiler performs terribly when blitzed this season, and guess who’s one of the highest ranked blitzing defenses. . .yup that’s it, the Denver Broncos!! Not many QBs have faired well @ Mile High stadium, and I’m adding Osweiler to that list!!! I expect for Denver to suffocate Osweiler and force him into making a bad decision or two. If you can help it, bench Brock as he faces his former team this week!!!
RB
Matt Forte (Baltimore @ New York Jets)
I know it’s tough to sit a name as big as Matt Forte’s, especially since he was a top RB in the first 3 games of the season. At this point, the Jets offense is a joke!!! During the 4 game skid, Forte is averaging 41 yards and no TDs per contest!!!  This week, Forte gets matched up against a top Baltimore run defense looking to bottle him up on all accounts!!! If I have better options, I’m playing it safe and benching Forte this week until the Jets offense decides to show up!!!
WR
Jordan Matthews (Minnesota @ Philadelphia)
Matthews has been solid all year, either scoring a TD or 65 receiving yards in every game, but his targets have taken a slight dip in the last 3 games (only being targeted 14 times)!! This week Matthews draws a matchup against a suffocating Vikings secondary that shut down the likes of Odell Beckham, Kelvin Benjamin, and DeAndre Hopkins!!! This isn’t a great matchup for any wideout so it’ll be best to bench Matthews if you have better options!!!
TE
Zach Ertz (Minnesota @ Philadelphia)
Ertz has one toughest matchups this week against the Vikings, who have yet to allow a TD to a TE all year!!! Ertz hasn’t been particularly productive since coming back from injury, and this game will be far from a coming out party!! This matchup is much too dangerous for Ertz owners!!!
D/ST
Pittsburgh (vs New England)
The Steelers are coming off of the worst defensive performance of the season on the road against Miami where they allowed a 200-yard rusher in Jay Ajayi!! Even though the Pittsburgh D plays much better at home, this week they play host to Tom Brady and company, and they have the tough task of stopping their dual TE tandem of Gronk and Martellus Bennett!! It’s going to be long afternoon for the Steelers D!!!
