Fanduel NFL Week 7 NFL Picks 10/22/2017 Denver Broncos vs. Los Angeles Chargers DFS Top Picks for Fanduel NFL and DraftKings
Denver will be somewhat undermanned as it tried to bounce back from a surprising 23-10 loss to the Giants. Wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie suffered right ankle sprains against New York and both will be sidelined from this week’s trip to Los Angeles. Sanders is second on the team in catches (25) and yards (266) to go along with his two touchdown receptions. On a good note, fellow receiver Demaryius Thomas is good to go for Sunday. Thomas had his right lower leg x-rayed in the third quarter against the Giants before he returned to the game. An MRI on Monday revealed nothing more than a bruise. The former Georgia Tech standout could be limited in practice this week but will suit up to face the Chargers. And even a less-than-100-percent Thomas is clearly still a force. Against the Giants he made 10 catches for 133 yards. Meanwhile, quarterback Trevor Siemian–who left the recent loss for a brief time due to a shoulder injury–has also been cleared to play. Throughout the Philip Rivers era, the Chargers have almost always boasted a stellar offense while putting a subpar defense on the field. The story has been a similar one this season in Los Angeles, with the team currently eighth in total offense and a decent 18th in total defense. But it was the defense that stepped up in a major way during last week’s 17-16 victory over Oakland. Los Angeles forced two turnovers and limited the Raiders to 274 total yards. Oakland scored only six points in the second half and the Chargers put up a 10-spot in the fourth quarter to complete a comeback victory. Derek Carr threw for just 171 yards in the loss. Los Angeles must get off to a good start in this one to compete. Even though the Broncos lost to the Giants last week, they boast the No. 1 overall defense in the NFL and will not be easy to mount a comeback against. The Chargers have been outscored 50-7 in the first quarter so far, this season.
