Fantasy football scoring is highly variable on a week-by-week basis. Even the top producers rarely come up big in every single game, making it important not to overreact to one or two poor showings.

Here are five players that were Week 6 fantasy football busts that should still prove to be startable options in Week 7.

1. DJ Chark, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars

DJ Chark just turned in his worst fantasy outing of the 2019 season, notching 7.3 PPR points. Don't let that sour you on him though, as the wideout still accounted for seven of the Jaguars' 28 targets in Week 6. He gets a much better matchup in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals, a team that ranks 31st in Football Outsiders' pass defense DVOA rankings. Expect Chark to bounce back this week, where we have him ranked 16th in our Week 7 PPR fantasy football rankings.

2. Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans were awful in their Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos, and that included running back Derrick Henry. He tallied 33 yards on 18 opportunities (15 carries and three targets), despite averaging 4.2 yards per opportunity on the season. A one-week hiccup isn't something to overreact to as the back hasn't had less than 18 opportunities in a game all season, and that workhorse volume keeps him firmly in play against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 7.

3. Tyler Boyd, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Tyler Boyd scored a season-low 4.0 PPR points in Week 6, but he still finished with seven targets, bringing his season average to exactly 10.0 points per game. Even in an Andy Dalton-led offense, that kind of volume is going to keep Boyd in play every week. He's a WR2/3 this weekend.

4. Matt Breida, RB, San Francisco 49ers

Matt Breida only managed 36 yards on the ground in the 49ers' Week 6 win, but his 13 carries and four targets matched a season-high 17 opportunities from Week 3. Even with Tevin Coleman back in action, Breida has 24 carries and seven receptions over the last two games. He also gets a nice boost from his Week 7 matchup, as the Washington Redskins have allowed top-10 fantasy scoring to opposing RBs so far this season.

5. Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams

Quarterback fantasy scores don't get much worse than Jared Goff's 1.12 points from Week 6, but that was in a brutal matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Things get far easier in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons, a team that is allowing the second most fantasy points per game to the QB position. Despite last week's struggles, we have Goff as a QB1 option this week. He sits ninth at the position in our Week 7 fantasy football rankings.
