Week 7 Open Thread

Welcome to the open thread for Week 7. The Denver Broncos have already played and lost, so sit back and enjoy a day of no rage.

If you are like me, you are still reeling from the ****show we witnessed from the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football, so I’ve decided to take this day and relax. Spend time with the family and also catch some red zone for fantasy football fun. I’ll go back to fretting over the Broncos’ spiral into the pit of doom on Monday.

Looking over to the NFC, I’m going to pick the Green Bay Packers as my team to root for this year. Let them block Tom Brady from another Super Bowl title and keep the Kansas City Chiefs from surging back to another title as well. Plus, it would be nice to see Aaron Rodgers peace out on the Packers for greener (hopefully Denver) pastures in 2022.

There’s always a chance Denver gets back into it, but it sure seems bleak at this point in time. We’ll just have to wait and see if they find a way to claw their way out of this hole.

In any case, enough about the Broncos. Let’s talk fantasy football in the comments section below.

I’m facing Bye Week Armageddon. I only play in two keeper leagues, both 14-team leagues with just four bench slots. It’s tough. I am the defending champion in one of them and I lucked out with Javonte Williams scoring a touchdown for me with both Zeke Elliot and Dalvin Cook on the bench with Byes this week. That is going to be huge for me there. In the other league, I have no viable quarterback but someone inexplicably dropped Russell Wilson. He’s out for a good while, but he’ll be back before the season is over. Huge pick up there.

How about you? How is your fantasy situation going this week?
