Ryan Fitzpatrick, Zach Pascal, and Kyle Rudolph were among the excellent fantasy performers who weren’t owned by many.

As we do each week, let’s take a look at the Week 7 fantasy football players who performed well despite mostly being unowned.

Every week, one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end are highlighted. In order to be considered, the player must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues.

Note: It wasn’t a very strong week for running backs who were eligible for the list. Chase Edmonds of the Cardinals almost made it for a third straight week, but he just missed out as he was owned in 28.9 percent of ESPN leagues.

1

Quarterback - Ryan Fitzpatrick, Dolphins (282 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, 1 interception, 13 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown)

Regaining his spot as Miami’s starting quarterback from Josh Rosen, Fitzpatrick had the most-productive game by a Dolphins quarterback this season. His 282 passing yards easily was the most by a Miami quarterback this season surpassing Josh Rosen’s 200 in Week 3.

2

Running back - Ty Johnson, Lions (29 rushing yards, 4 receptions, 28 receiving yards)

A sixth round pick by Detroit in April, Johnson’s 10 carries nearly equaled the 13 he accumulated going into Sunday and his four receptions were the same amount he caught in the first five games. CBS Sports believes that he needs to be picked up as he will continue to receive more playing time as starting running back Kerryon. Johnson left Sunday’s game with a knee injury.
