Tevin Coleman is among the top RBs for Week 7 Fantasy Football.

Kevin Hanson joins SI for the 2019 season. His fantasy rankings have placed him in the Top 20 in each of the past two seasons among all the industry experts tracked by FantasyPros.com, and he has been in the Top 25 in six of the past eight years.

Check out more of Kevin’s rankings: QB, WR, TE, DST, flex and kicker.

RB Start of the Week: Tevin Coleman, San Francisco 49ers (at WAS)

The 49ers have the league’s highest run-play percentage (56.03%), and Tevin Coleman is emerging as the back to own in San Francisco’s backfield. Coleman has a pair of productive outings since returning from a two-game absence and the team’s Week 4 bye.

Even though Coleman rushed for just 45 yards last week, he had a team-high 18 carries and added a pair of receptions while also rushing for a touchdown. With 36 touches over the past two weeks, Coleman has scored in back-to-back games and has a total of 158 yards from scrimmage.

With the 49ers as nearly double-digit favorites, a positive game script could allow Coleman to approach 20 touches once again in Week 7. Washington has allowed the fifth-most rushing yards per game (134.0) and a robust 4.6 YPC this season.

Both Coleman and teammate Matt Breida are inside my top-24 fantasy running backs for the week.

RB Sit of the Week: All Kansas City Chiefs Running Backs (at DEN)

The Chiefs rank 24th in the NFL in rushing offense, and there is little reason to trust any of their running backs at this point of the season.

LeSean McCoy led the team with 10 touches last week, but he had zero carries and two receptions the prior week with a lost fumble. Meanwhile, Damien Williams had 12 touches in Week 6, but just two touches last week.

As explosive as the Chiefs' offense can be in any given week, there is potential for a running back to have a big game. Given their inconsistent workloads, it is difficult to know whether it would be McCoy or Williams that would lead the team’s backfield in workload and have the highest potential for a big week.

Heading into Week 7, neither McCoy nor Williams should be viewed as anything more than a flex option.
