TV:

It’s Thursday, which means Week 7 in fantasy football is officially upon us. It’s also time for our weekly Start/Sit list, so let’s take a closer look at the numbers and matchups to see who will be affecting our lineups for better or worse.

Start ‘Em:

Fantasy Football 2015: Week 7 Start/Sit

USA TODAY Sports

Brian Hoyer, QB, Houston Texans: The Texans are sticking with Hoyer as the QB, at least for the time being. He’s coming off a nice game against the Jags, tossing 293 yards and three touchdowns.
He’ll get a favorable matchup this week against the Dolphins and could provide some solid value for his fantasy level.

Chris Thompson, RB, Washington Redskins: Thompson is the Redskins’ third-down and passing RB, and with the team struggling most of the time, he should see a lot of work in Week 7.
Thompson is more of a sleeper play than anything, but may provide some nice value to the RB-needy, especially in PPR formats.

Ben Watson, TE, New Orleans Saints: Want to take a chance on a readily-available tight end? Watson is your guy this week, as he’s coming off a career week that really proved his ceiling.
Watson posted 10 grabs for 127 yards and a score against Atlanta, and if that sticks in Drew Brees’ mind we could get a repeat--or at least a decent game.

Sit ‘Em:

Jordan Matthews, WR, Philadelphia Eagles: If there’s one thing we took away from that Eagles game last week, it’s that the offense has a ton of faults. Matthews gets a rough individual matchup this week against the Panthers, and after Week 6 we don’t have a lot of confidence in anything on that side of the ball aside from DeMarco Murray.

Chris Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals: This one’s a matchup play, and it looks bad on paper. Johnson is more of a between-the-tackles runner, and probably won’t give too much trouble to the Ravens front. We’d expect the Cards to dig a little deeper in their RB corps this week and avoid any downhill running.

Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons: Here’s another matchup play you might want to avoid, but for the opposite reason. Ryan and company will face off against the Titans this week, which figures to be a run-heavy game plan. As a result, he probably won’t have to do too much throwing and his numbers will reflect that.
