During 2011 fantasy football Week 7, your season could be more than half over. Week 7 fantasy football could be a milestone for your fantasy football team. You could have had a great first half of the season, and be thinking about making the playoffs later on this season. Or your Week 7 fantasy football rankings could just be a microcosm of your season, and in a not-so-good way. Or, if you play in a fantasy football league that starts anew each and every week, Week 7 fantasy football could have been a great week for you, or a lousy week, depending on how your players did.

So let’s take a look at fantasy football Week 7, and how your fantasy football players did on the gridiron. First up, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw for five touchdowns and 325 yards as the Saints walloped the Indianapolis Colts, 62-7. The Colts are woeful this year – they haven’t won a game so far – without quarterback Peyton Manning. It shows how much just one player can make a team, something you may know if you had Manning on your fantasy football team in the past – or you have Drew Brees on your fantasy football team right now.
During fantasy football Week 7, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 361 yards and three TDs in a win over the Arizona Cardinals.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw for 335 yards and three TDs in a win over Minnesota. The Packers are undefeated this year, and Rodgers is having a stellar year, improving your Week 7 fantasy football rankings for anybody who had Rodgers. It’s easy being green this year, as the defending Super Bowl champions continue to win, and Rodgers puts up more good numbers for Week 7 fantasy football.
The Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson ran for 175 yards and a TD.
During fantasy football Week 7, Carson Palmer made his debut for the Oakland Raiders in the second half after Kyle Boller threw three interceptions in the first half. But Palmer threw three more INTs and was just eight of 21 for 116 yards as the Raiders lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, 28-0.
Making matters worse for Oakland, oft-injured Darren McFadden left the game in the first quarter with an injured foot in fantasy football Week 7. If you have him on your fantasy football team, it might be time to find a replacement.
Dallas Cowboys rookie DeMarco Murray ran for a franchise record 253 yards in the Cowboys’ win over the St. Louis Rams.
In fantasy football Week 7, the Chicago Bears’ Matt Forte ran for 145 yards and a TD as the Bears beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Washington Redskins’ Tim Hightower was carted off the field with what looked like a serious knee injury. If he is on your fantasy football team, you might want to consider finding a replacement.
At this point in the season, your Week 7 fantasy football rankings may be indicative of your year so far. There is still time to pick up your season, though, if your numbers are not so hot.
