The New England Patriots are still getting respect from the sports books on the heels of last year even though they have an offense that has been horrible so far this season.
QB Kyle Orton, Chicago Bears
Coming into the 2008 fantasy football season, many considered Kyle Orton to be too bad to even put on a roster. Now, after another good performance in Week 7, Orton is starting to look like a legitimate fantasy football starter. In Week 7, he put up 283 passing yards and two touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings.
RB Steven Jackson, St. Louis Rams
In fantasy football drafts, Steven Jackson was almost always a top five pick. Although he hadn’t lived up to that billing so far in 2008, his explosion in Week 7 was very impressive. He had three touchdowns to go with 160 rushing yards and 16 receiving yards. The bad news is that Jackson left the game late with an apparent injury.
WR Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions
With Roy Williams now with the Dallas Cowboys, Calvin Johnson showed what he can do as a lead receiver. The former first round draft pick had 154 receiving yards and a touchdown in Week 7. With most of the targets in Detroit heading his way now, Johnson is a player that could explode in any given week.
TE Owen Daniels, Houston Texans
Coming into Week 7, Owen Daniels didn’t have a touchdown. But the Texans tight end busted out in a big way with two touchdowns and 66 receiving yards this week. Daniels is quietly one of the better fantasy football tight ends in the NFL and he should continue to play better and better as the Texans offense improves.

The grid is set for the race to the BCS national championship game. Texas holds
the pole position and Alabama is second. Penn State joins the Longhorns and
Crimson Tide in the front row, but the Nittany Lions already might have too much
ground to gain.
The NFL prides itself on bringing the people games they want to see, they have not succeeded this Sunday night however, by offering the Buccaneers and Seahawks to gamblers and fans.
