Lucky number seven…
It’s here, and are you feeling lucky in Week 7? Well, rather than depend on luck, let’s look at some stone-cold facts and let those stats help guide you through your slate. You’ve got this #FANation
Alex Smith is the only quarterback with more than 35 completions on the season who has yet to throw an interception. The Oakland Raiders are the team that hasn’t logged an interception this year.
Derek Carr hasn’t thrown for over 200 yards since Week 2 of this season, and hasn’t thrown for over 265 yards since Week 11 of the 2016 season.
LeSean McCoy only has 279 rushing yards on the season. That is only 90 more yards than his receiving total. And his 189 receiving yards are the second-most on the Bills, just behind Charles Clay, the team’s leading target who will miss at least a month of action.
Cam Newton is second in rushing yards (161) and tied for first in rushing touchdowns (3) among all quarterbacks. He only rushed for 30 yards and didn’t score in the first two games of the year.
Derrick Henry played in a season-high 57-percent of the Titan’s offensive snaps. DeMarco Murray is nursing a hamstring injury. Henry’s snap count and usage has been directly related to Murray’s existence on the injury report all season.
Drew Brees is on pace for 4,227.2 passing yards on the season. That would be his 11th season with 4,200 yards or more. He would be the only quarterback in history to do that.
Jacksonville only passes on 47.52-percent of their plays, the absolute smallest percentage in the league. Therefore, they allow the ninth-fewest fantasy points to opposing defenses.
Marlon Mack has yet to play in more than 34-percent of the Colts’ offensive snaps.
As a season average, the Arizona Cardinal throw the ball on 66.67-percent of their offensive plays, the absolute most in the league. Last week during the debut of Adrian Peterson as a Cardinal, the team threw on 40.68-percent of their plays, and that was the second fewest in the league.
Over the course of the season, Robert Woods has played in 85-percent of the Rams’ offensive snaps. Sammy Watkins has played in 77-percent of the snaps. Cooper Kupp has played in 67-percent of the snaps, and yet it is Kupp who has scored more fantasy points in both standard and PPR formats.
Joe Flacco has thrown four touchdowns to eight interceptions.
In Week 5, Latavius Murray played in 31-percent of the team’s offensive snaps, as compared to McKinnon’s 67-percent. In Week 6, Murray played in 43-percent of the snaps, as opposed to McKinnon’s 57-percent. McKinnon and Murray both carried the ball 15 times last week.
Jeremy Kerley logged his first incomplete pass of the season last week. He holds the best catch rate in the league among all wide receivers who have seen more than two targets on the season.
Dallas has been able to score a touchdown on 66.7-percent of their red zone possessions, which is the second-best rate in the league.
Trevor Siemian logged 50 pass attempts against the New York Giants in Week 6. The team threw on 77.33-percent of their plays.
Philip Rivers has thrown six interceptions in the last three weeks. He threw three interceptions against the Broncos in Week 1 of this year.
Among the bevy of running backs, Thomas Rawls played in a team-high 47-percent of the Seahawks’ offensive snaps in Week 6. C.J. Prosise is projected to play this week for the first time since Week. 3. On the season, Chris Carson is still the only Seattle running back to play in over 50-percent of the team’s snaps.
Even in an upset victory against the Denver Broncos, Eli Manning only logged 11 completions for 128 yards and a touchdown. It was only the second game this season wherein Manning didn’t throw an interception.
Joe Mixon is still only averaging 2.8 yards per carry and has only scored one touchdown in five weeks of play, but the Steelers have allowed 75 or more rushing yards to four running backs this season.
Antonio Brown is the only wide receiver in the league with three games of 150-plus receiving yards so far this season.
Tevin Coleman has 20 targets, 14 catches for 157 yards and a touchdown so far this season. The Patriots allow an average of 76 receiving yards per game to opposing running backs.
James White and Dion Lewis both played in 43-percent of the Patriots’ offensive snaps in Week 6. That was the first time since Week 2 that any other running back had even tied White in snaps, and no running back has been on the field more than White in any game this season.
The Washington Redskins have passed on only 52.7-percent of their plays, down from the 60.7-percent of the time they would pass in 2016. The highest scoring wide receiver on the team in standard scoring is Ryan Grant.
