Can Week Six's star keep it going?

Our weekly look at the next matchups for last week's highest scoring fantasy players.

Drew Brees
Week Seven: at Carolina

In a post-Tom Brady world, is there a better fantasy quarterback than Drew Brees? Even without his top receiver, the injured Marques Colston, Brees continues to post big numbers. He'll get another chance on Sunday against a Panthers team that let Jeff Garcia complete 75 percent of his passes last week. Expect a couple more touchdown tosses for Bress in Carolina.

Clinton Portis
Week Seven: Cleveland

So remember when everyone was so quick to say the Broncos got the better end of the Clinton Portis-Champ Bailey swap? The way things are going this year, that trade may be the football equivalent of Josh Beckett for Hanley Ramirez. Portis has simply been the NFL's most productive runner this year, and that shouldn't change on Sunday. The Browns are coming off a big win, but Portis is rolling behind the Washington offensive line. It's a good bet he'll continue his dominance this weekend.

Reggie Wayne
Week Seven: at Green Bay

Last week we saw the old Colts offense for the first time this year. Manning was chucking the ball all over the field, which is a great thing for fantasy owners. Marvin Harrison is on the downside of his career now; Reggie Wayne is Manning's top target. Expect another big game in Green Bay this weekend.
