Biggest Winners and Losers NFL Week 7

Aaron NaglerNFL National Lead WriterOctober 21, 2012

He's baaaack. Chris Johnson was undoubtedly a big Week 7 winner, as the Titans running back had 195 yards and two touchdowns against the horrible Bills defense. But hey, CJ2K has put together two solid weeks. Fantasy owners, you better start Johnson every week.

If you are a Vikings fan, you have to be riding high, as Adrian Peterson is putting Minnesota's offense on his back. Once again, "Purple Jesus" was dominant, running for 145 yards and averaging 6.7 yards a carry. Adrian Peterson, huge winner.

For those who said Aaron Rodgers was too inconsistent this year, look at the last two weeks and you'll see the reigning MVP is back and better than ever. Rodgers torched a solid Rams defense for a cool 342 yards and three more touchdowns.

And how about the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 draft, Andrew Luck? Yes, we knew he had a great arm, but who knew he could also win games with his legs? Yes, Luck was a big winner, as he rushed for two touchdowns leading the Colts past the Browns 17-13 in a battle of rookie quarterbacks.

On the losing side, look no further than Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens. This is a team whose defense has carried it for years, but this was supposed to be the year Flacco and the Ravens could win games on offense. When the Ravens needed Flacco to step up against the Texans, he stepped back as a very "non-elite" NFL quarterback, losing to Houston 43-13.

There were rumors the Cardinals were talking about trying out Vince Young at quarterback. Advice to Young and any other Arizona quarterback: Stay away from this mess. The Cardinals offensive line gave up seven sacks to the Vikings and now have given up a whopping 35 sacks. Do the math: That's five sacks a game. Ouch.

Poor Jaguars. Poor fans. Poor MJD fantasy owners. Poor Blaine Gabbert. Yes, the Jags played without the injured Blaine Gabbert and Maurice Jones-Drew to an overtime loss in Oakland. Not only do the Jags lose, they lose their two key offensive players.
