Predicting NFL Week 7 upset picks, fantasy football sleepers and flops, plus buzz and notes around the league

It's already Week 7 of the 2021 NFL season, and we asked our insiders Dan Graziano and Jeremy Fowler for some insight on the biggest news and for their picks on games and players to watch this weekend.

A handful of quarterbacks are leading the MVP conversation at the moment, but are there any defenders, running backs or receivers who could be considered this season? Fowler and Graziano weigh in with some candidates from other areas of the field. They also dive in on a big looming decision for the Eagles: What will they do at quarterback next season? Could Jalen Hurts remain the starter, or will the team use a stable of draft picks to start over -- or will they do something else?

Graziano and Fowler also share their upset picks for Week 7, including an unexpected AFC North matchup. And for fantasy managers looking to make all the right moves, they name must-start sleepers and point out potential fantasy flops of the week. They get into all of it, emptying their notebooks with everything they've heard this week, including injury updates for the Browns and Cowboys, how Kirk Cousins' confidence is playing a part in the Vikings' late-game comebacks and what the Seahawks plan to do at quarterback. Let's get started with the upset picks of the week, but you can also jump to other big questions for Week 7.
