NFL 2019 Week 7 Defensive Back Rankings

It is week seven and there are four teams on a bye: Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Carolina Panthers, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Cleveland Browns. That is a few pivotal defensive backs.

There are also a few players you want to keep an eye on as they are listed as questionable and therefore not ranked: Byron Jones, Donte Jackson, and Desmond Trufant.

Also Jalen Ramsey is not ranked because his status for this week is uncertain.

Now the rankings for week 7 defensive backs. Remember the rankings are based on potential point scoring for the week.

Fantasy v Reality

A shut-down defensive back…say one named Marshon Lattimore of the New Orleans Saints is a bona fide shut-down corner. But he doesn’t have the glaring stats because quarterbacks (rightly so) are hesitant (the smart ones) to throw his way.
