Each week, we’re listing players to start or sit in fantasy football.As always, these are less obvious choices — players fantasy owners might be on the cusp of starting or sitting.Here are our start ’em, sit ’ems for Week 7 of the NFL season.Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.Week 7 of the NFL season is here, and we’re back with our weekly start/sits for fantasy football.Last week, we correctly picked five of nine “starts.” Kyler Murray finished in the top 10 among quarterbacks, while at the skill positions, Mark Ingram, Carlos Hyde, Terry McLaurin, and Larry Fitzgerald all finished in the top 30. It would have been six, but James White was stopped at the goal line on one play. (Not that we’re bitter or anything.)Meanwhile, six of our “sits” finished outside the top 30 at their respective positions. We were burned by Carson Wentz, Phillip Lindsay, and Mike Williams producing better-than-expected numbers in fantasy.Check out our start ’em, sit ’ems for Week 7 below. As always, we try to pick less obvious choices — players fantasy owners might be on the cusp of starting or sitting.

START: Josh Allen, QB

Team: Buffalo BillsWeek 7 opponent: vs. Miami DolphinsWhy you should start him: The Dolphins remain a team to target in fantasy. Allen and the Bills are coming off a bye and are at home. Look for Allen to gain some yards on the ground too.

SIT: Kirk Cousins, QB

Team: Minnesota VikingsWeek 7 opponent: at Detroit LionsWhy you should sit him: The Vikings offense has been clicking the past two weeks after a Week 5 stinker in Chicago. However, they were also playing the Giants and the Eagles’ below-average pass defense. Now Cousins goes on the road against the Lions, who rank 10th in pass defense and just gave Aaron Rodgers some trouble in a relatively low-scoring, grind-it-out affair.

START: Daniel Jones, QB

Team: New York GiantsWeek 7 opponent: vs. Arizona CardinalsWhy you should start him: Jones has thrown for fewer than 200 yards in two of his last three starts and has three touchdowns to six interceptions in the past three weeks. But we’re giving him a vote of confidence this week. He should have some offensive weapons back, as tight end Evan Engram looks set to return, and possibly Saquon Barkley.The Cardinals are one of the worst defenses in the league and will be on the road for an early start. We expect Jones to bounce back and put up start-worthy numbers. Look for him on waivers if you have a QB on a bye week.

SIT: Tom Brady, QB
