Week 7 fantasy football rankings: Injuries, byes leave lineups extremely thin

Good luck trying to field a full, healthy lineup this week. With six NFL teams on bye and a flurry of injuries to key players, a season plagued by low scoring could potentially get even worse.

ON BYE: Carolina Panthers, Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, New York Jets, Tennessee Titans

Fantasy football rankings for Week 7 are based on the point-per-reception (PPR) scoring used in most seasonal and daily fantasy football formats. One point is awarded for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 20 passing yards. Six points are awarded for touchdowns scored, four points for passing TDs and one point for receptions.

Rankings are compiled by Daniel Dobish, TheHuddle.com

QUARTERBACK

Notes: Kyler Murray (knee) could get the start over Joshua Dobbs; Daniel Jones (neck) is inactive so Tyrod Taylor gets another start; Deshaun Watson (shoulder) practiced fully on Friday could start; Justin Fields (thumb) is out.
