Fantasy Football: Week 7 Player Rankings

As we venture into the second third of the NFL season, a few WRs have made big moves up the Cosby Sweaters Fantasy Football Player Rankings, especially second-year playmaker A.J. Green of the Cincinnati Bengals.  As the top scoring wide receiver in most scoring formats, he finally grabs the #1 spot in Week 7, just edging out the Giants’ Victor Cruz who continues to prove 2011 was no fluke and the do-it-all Percy Harvin.

Two tight ends that also continue to move up are Harvin’s teammate and TD-catching maching Kyle Rudolph along with Owen Daniels of Houston.  Without a dynamic Gronkowski or Graham-like performance from any TEs thus far in 2012, the Cosby Sweaters rankings have seen heavy movement in the top 5 all season.
