RB Todd Gurley: The man is an animal. Rams running back Todd Gurley has secured the starting running back position for years to come, as long as he can stay healthy. I’m buying into this rookie as he’s rushed the ball 49 times for 305 yards the past two games including 30 rush attempts against the Packers in week five. Since Gurley is the only form of offense for the Rams, they will continue to feed their star. I look for Gurley to make the most of his carries and wouldn’t be surprised if he found the end zone at least a couple of times in week seven against the Browns.
Prediction: 29 carries, 127 yards 2 TD, 3 rec, 25 yards
QB Tom Brady: I’m saying it. Tom Brady will return to human form Sunday when the Jets come in to Foxborough. The Patriots look like they have another legitimate shot at an undefeated season this year with Tom Brady looking like his 2007 self. However, the Jets and their defense led by Darrelle Revis will be Brady’s toughest task this season so far. I think he has a non-Brady day in what should be a close, physical game.
Prediction: 27-44, 235 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT
WR Martavis Bryant: The Steelers have two of the best players in the league on the offensive side of the ball in Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown. However, fresh off his four-game suspension, Bryant was the one who showed out week six against the Cardinals. Bryant caught six balls for 137 yards and two touchdowns including an 87-yard touchdown. Whether it’s third-string Landry Jones throwing the ball or hobbled Big Ben possibly coming back, I could see Bryant having another huge fantasy week.
Prediction: 5 rec, 101 yards, 1TD
