Creating An Optimal Lineup For Week 7 College Football

  • D’Eriq King is the fifth-ranked quarterback on daily fantasy football sites.
  • Amari Rodgers is priced at $6,200 on DFS Sites.
  • Josh Palmers costs $6,500 on fantasy football sites.

MIAMI – With Week 7 of college football on the horizon, it is time for fantasy football GM’s to begin creating their lineups for Saturday.

There are tons of great matchups in the top-25 in Week 7 so it is always best to not only pick up players who perform well but also players who have favorable matchups as well on online betting sites.

That being said, this lineup is just a suggested lineup and should be switched around to the users liking.

QB – D’Eriq King, $8,100
RB – Jahmyr Gibbs, $5,400
RB – Ainias Smith, $5,200
WR – Amari Rodgers, $6,200
WR – Osirus Mitchell, $6,000
WR – Josh Ali, $5,100
FLEX – Josh Palmer, $6,500
SuperFLEX – Cam’Ron Harris, $7,400

Starting at the top with the quarterback position, D’Eriq King is the fifth rated quarterback on daily fantasy football sites heading into Week 7 as he has a nice matchup with Pitt.

King is coming off of a harsh game against number one ranked Clemson. King was held to season lows across the board but that should not be discouraging as King will very likely bounce back in Week 7 against a Pitt defense that just allowed 358 yards and 3 touchdowns in Week 6.

What sets King aside, however, is his ability to keep the ball and run with it. This should be more than enough for fantasy football owners to select King.

Running Backs

The first running back slot is filled out by Jahmyr Gibbs who has played spectacular thus far in the season. During his freshman season, he has been not only a great running option but also a great receiving option as well.

He has put up 232 rush yards, 2 rushing touchdowns, 146 receiving yards, and 3 receiving touchdowns on the season so far and has scored at least one TD in each game. He has a tough matchup with Clemson this week but will likely continue to serve as a workhorse on offense for Georgia Tech.

The second running back slot is taken by Ainias Smith who has had a great college football season thus far and will look to follow that up this week as well.

Smith, like Gibbs, offers offense both on the ground in the run game as well as the receiving game as he has 103 rush yards and 203 receiving yards so far on the season along with one rushing touchdown and two receiving touchdowns.

Although he is listed as the Aggies RB2, he has been seeing more work than Isaiah Spiller who is the RB1 and can be taken with confidence here.

Wide Receivers

The first wide receiver spot is taken by Amari Rodgers out of Clemson who seems to be one of Trevor Lawrence’s favorite targets.

He has seen over 50 receiving yards in three of four games this season and has also caught three touchdowns on the season as well. Rodgers also has a very nice matchup with Georgia Tech, who in their past three games have allowed the top receivers to reel in 89 yards and one touchdown, 87 yards and one touchdown and 154 yards and two touchdowns.

If that is any indication of what is in store for Rodgers against GA Tech, he should be a no brainer pick.

The second receiver slot is filled out by Osirus Mitchell out of Mississippi State. He has clearly brought in great yardage over the season as he has already got 247 yards and two touchdowns on the year.

He has a favorable matchup here in Week 7 against Texas A&M who ranks 82 in the country against opposing wide receivers. Just to give an example of what Mitchell could do against this weak defense, the Aggies allowed 92 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1, 181 yards and two touchdowns in Week 2 and 72 yards and one touchdown in Week 3 all to the opposing teams top receiving option.

The final receiver slot is taken by Josh Ali out of Kentucky. Ali has been great throughout the season as he is clearly the go-to guy when it comes to passing the ball.

With 18 receptions so far this season, he has been able to put up 208 yards but has yet to make his way to the endzone. That could change here in Week 7 as Kentucky goes up against a bottom tier Tennessee defense that ranks 67 in the nation against opposing wide receivers.

Looking at what Tennessee has allowed to opposing team’s top receiving options, they have given up 302 yards and two touchdowns to just the top options. Ali could very well be in line to join that list of receivers to go off on Tennessee.


The Flex position is taken by wideout Josh Palmer out of Tennessee. Palmer could also be in line for a big game here as Kentucky does not match up well against opposing wide receivers as well as they are 88 in the country.

Palmer has brought in over 70 yards a game in all three games he has played this season and has also caught three touchdowns as well. Kentucky has allowed their opposing team’s top receivers to go for 112 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1, 128 yards, and two touchdowns in Week 2 and 79 yards in Week 3.

This should make Palmer a no brainer pick here.

Super FLEX

The final roster spot here is taken by Cam’Ron Harris out of Miami. Harris could consider this a bounce-back game as he was held to season lows across the board last week against Clemson.

Just to give an indication of just how good Harris is, he has put up 314 yards and five touchdowns in just four games that Miami has played this season.

The Hurricanes offensive line has clearly been on a roll here as they have opened up plenty of opportunities for Harris to break free and will look to continue that in Week 7 against Pitt.
