When entering your FanDuel NFL contests for Week 7, here’s a lineup to consider using.
As usual, let’s first take a look at how my FanDuel NFL lineup did in Week 6.
Quarterback: Kirk Cousins-28.8 points
Running Backs: Leonard Fournette-20.8 points, Ameer Abdullah-5.4 points
Wide Receivers: Antonio Brown-25.5 points, Larry Fitzgerald-22.8 points, Michael Crabtree-14.2 points
Tight End: David Njoku-1 point
Kicker: Brandon McManus-4 points
Defense: Baltimore Ravens-20 points
Other than Njoku, McManus and Abdullah, this lineup delivered nicely. I also won $5 in a $1 contest using it, and it turns out I was not the only one to cash in a little bit.

Looking now to Week 7, here’s a FanDuel lineup to think about deploying in Sunday-only contests.
Quarterback: Marcus Mariota, Tennessee Titans-$8,200
After missing a game in Week 5, Mariota returned to action Monday night against the Indianapolis Colts but throwing for 306 yards on 23 of 32 passing with one touchdown and one interception. He was clearly not willing to run on a possibly still-tender hamstring, but he operated well from the pocket in a favorable matchup.
Another favorable matchup is coming for Mariota in Week 7. The Cleveland Browns have allowed multiple passing touchdowns in five of their six games, and they’ve allowed at least two total touchdowns to a quarterback in all six games they’ve played.
Mariota practiced in full on Wednesday, as I’m writing this that night, which is a great sign on a short week and points to him being without limitations on Sunday. Surely the Browns defense won’t put any restrictions on the 2014 Heisman Trophy winner
