MLB All Star Adrian Gonzalez Challenges Jim Cramer to a Fantasy Football Match-Up

In the third week of our Challenge Cramer fantasy football tournament, Jim Cramer takes on Major League Baseball player Adrian Gonzalez in a head-to-head showdown for eternal bragging rights

Week 7 Challenge Cramer

After defeating Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson in Week 6, Jim Cramer takes on a new challenger for Week 7 in five time MLB All-Star and avid fantasy football player Adrian Gonzalez. The first baseman joined Bull Market Fantasy on Thursday and drafted against the Wall Street Legend.

Gonzalez had the first pick and sniped Jim right out of the gate by taking Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp. The Rams and Kupp have a great match-up this weekend against a really bad Falcons secondary. 

Jim was then on the clock for two picks where he selected Bengals running back Leonard Fournette who has a cupcake match-up against one of the worst run defenses in the league in the Bengals. Jim also selected wide receiver Julio Jones who will play in what should be a high scoring game against Los Angeles.

Gonzalez then grabbed Giants running back Saquon Barkley who is ready to make his return to action and Falcons tight end Austin Hooper. 

Jim's final pick was tight end Evan Engram who is facing a Cardinals defense that is giving up the most points to opposing tight ends. 

Both Gonzalez and Jim have a Giant and Falcon on their team for Week 7. Will be interesting to see who predicted which player from those teams gets the rock on Sunday.
