Playbook Fantasy Week 7 Hits and Misses

Fantasy Tips, Inside the Game, Nick Condit

Hard to believe that Week 8 is already approaching. Let’s look back and review the Playbook War Room’s fantasy hits and misses from Week 7.

HIT

Mike Wallace, Steelers: Wallace is probably the premiere deep threat in the league right now and the Playbook guys liked him against the Arizona secondary. Wallace had 118 receiving yards, including a 95-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown.

Cam Newton (AP)

Cam Newton and Steve Smith, Panthers: Smith is clearly still one of the best in the game and his big-armed quarterback has certainly helped. Playbook liked the pair’s chances to put up big numbers against Washington. Newton threw for 256 yards and a touchdown, while running for 59 yards and another score. Smith caught seven passes for 143 yards in Carolina’s victory .

Michael Turner, Falcons: The Playbook guys saw no reason why Turner shouldn’t have another big week against Detroit, after a big game against Carolina. Turner ran 27 times for 122 yards, including a 50-yard scamper, to give him his second straight 100-yard rushing game. The Falcons are 3-1 when he runs for 100 yards.

Chris Johnson (AP)

MISS

Chris Johnson, Titans: Johnson has been a totally different player this year and Playbook thought that the Titans offensive line would step up against the Texans and finally open some holes for CJ. Nope. Johnson ran 10 times for a grand total of 18 yards, with a long of three.
