Fantasy football sizzlers, fizzlers: No one can keep up with Marvin Jones
These players saw their fantasy values increase or decrease most based on their performances in Week 7:
QB Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers: Playing without star receiver Davante Adams for a third consecutive week, Rodgers spread his 429 passing yards among eight different receivers — throwing for five touchdowns and running for another.
QB Jacoby Brissett, Indianapolis Colts: Brissett was efficient and unafraid to throw the ball in the red zone, which resulted in season highs of 326 yards and four touchdown passes.
WR Marvin Jones, Detroit Lions: Jones seems to have one "blow-up" game like this every season, but it doesn't usually come with four touchdown catches. With the Lions in catch-up mode, the targets (13) were more plentiful than usual.

RB Chase Edmonds, Arizona Cardinals: It was a surprise when David Johnson was active and only had one carry. Edmonds definitely picked up the slack, rushing for 126 yards and three touchdowns. All three of the scores came from at least 20 yards out.
TE Darren Waller, Oakland Raiders: Waller is more a big wide receiver than a tight end, and he catches almost everything thrown his way. With Oakland's wide receivers struggling badly, Waller has been the only dependable option in the passing game.
WR Will Fuller, Houston Texans: A significant hamstring injury cut Fuller's week short and may now cause him to miss several weeks. As a result, Kenny Stills becomes an interesting waiver wire target.
TE Evan Engram, New York Giants: Engram had a quiet week, managing just one reception from five targets. The concern with Engram is that he just isn't utilized as much with Daniel Jones at quarterback as he was with Eli Manning.
RB David Montgomery, Chicago Bears: It was a bad afternoon for Montgomery as he only rushed twice for six yards and lost a fumble. Game flow may have been a contributing factor with the Bears trailing most of the game, but the rookie's involvement seems to be going in the wrong direction.
RB Devonta Freeman, Atlanta Falcons: Freeman was ineffective against the Rams before being ejected for throwing a punch at Aaron Donald. The frustration in Atlanta is palpable as the entire offense is sputtering and quarterback Matt Ryan is dealing with an ankle injury.
WR Terry McLaurin, Washington Redskins: Maybe it was the steady rain or maybe interim coach Bill Callahan has a firm commitment to the run, but QB Case Keenum had just 12 pass attempts and McLaurin was held to one catch for 11 yards.
