Your Guide to the Week 7 Primetime Slate
Cash Game Locks
Saquon Barkley at Atlanta
Barkley is insanely talented, is tied for fifth in the league in opportunities per game (22.5), and gets to face a Falcons defensive roster that couldn’t stop opposing RBs to save their lives. The Falcons rank 24th in rushing yards allowed per game and 31st in Run DVOA. They’ve struggled mightily to stop RBs from catching passes out of the backfield and Barkley is one of the best in the league at doing just that.
Joe Mixon at Kansas City
Giovani Bernard will miss yet another game and that means it will be the Mixon show. Mixon is tied with Saquon Barkley for fifth in the league in opportunities per game (22.5) and gets to play against a bad Chiefs defense that ranks 27th in rushing yards allowed per game and 32nd in Pass DVOA.
