Zach Ertz caught 1-of-3 targets for 14 yards Week 7 against the Vikings.
Ertz probably should have had catches on his other two targets as well, but Carson Wentz struggled with his accuracy all day. Even so, Ertz has now failed to top three targets in the three games he has played since returning from injury. He can be cut in standard-sized leagues.
Kenneth Dixon managed zero yards on his lone carry and lost a yard on his lone catch in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Jets.
He shared backup work with Lorenzo Taliaferro, who was active for this one over Buck Allen and carried once for no yardage. Dixon can be dropped in 12-team leagues during the Ravens' Week 8 bye.
Nelson Agholor caught 2-of-6 targets for 10 yards Week 7 against the Vikings.
Agholor is not very good, but the Eagles keep feeding him targets. He now has 191 yards on 32 targets (6 YPT) on the season and has yet to top 65 yards in a game in his career. Philly needs to find someone else.
Terrance West rushed eight times for 10 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Jets.
He had a 49-yard run negated by a holding penalty on LG Alex Lewis, and was barely heard from otherwise. It's not surprising West struggled against the run-tough Jets, but it is surprising that he only saw eight touches in a game where the Ravens' backup running backs got next to no work. In 12-team leagues, West is worth holding onto through the Ravens' Week 8 bye. Baltimore faces a struggling Pittsburgh run defense in its next game.
Jay Ajayi rushed 29 times for 214 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' 28-25, Week 7 win over the Bills.
After running for 204 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries last week against the Steelers, Ajayi proved it was no fluke. Ajayi joins O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell, and former Dolphins great Ricky Williams as the only running backs in NFL history to post back-to-back 200-yard rushing games. Ajayi's longest run was a 53-yarder with the Dolphins backed up at their own goal line in the fourth quarter. His touchdown was a four-yard pounder. Ajayi has solidified himself as the Dolphins' clear lead dog as Arian Foster fades to black. Ajayi gets the bye week before a home date with a tough Jets run defense in Week 9. He's on the RB1/2 map from here on out.
Dorial Green-Beckham caught 2-of-4 targets for eight yards and a touchdown Week 7 against the Vikings.
Green-Beckham has seen his role in the offense grow steadily over the last month, but he has yet to really deliver on the field. That did not change against the Vikings, but he did manage to find the end zone from five yards out in the third quarter. He ran a slant into cleared out space created by a corner route and boxed out two defenders at the goal line. It is the type of route DGB should dominate on, but he consistently fails to play to his size. The Eagles need someone on the outside, however, and Green-Beckham should get every chance to earn that role. He is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues.
Breshad Perriman caught 1-of-5 targets for 11 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Jets.
Mike Wallace and Dennis Pitta both drew double-digit targets, while Perriman and Kamar Aiken (6 targets) took backseats. Perriman has all kinds of potential, but he's yet to realize it coming back from last year's season-ending PCL injury. Perriman's role will lessen whenever Steve Smith Sr. (ankle) returns.
Kirk Cousins completed 30-of-39 passes for 301 yards and a touchdown in Washington's 20-17, Week 7 loss to the Lions, adding three carries for 19 yards and a touchdown.
With the Redskins trailing 13-10 with 1:05 remaining, Cousins appeared to give his team the victory with a brilliant 19-yard keeper on a read option. Instead Matthew Stafford marched right down the field and stole the game for the Lions. Cousins was highly accurate, but couldn't hit any big plays. He continued to show zero chemistry with DeSean Jackson. He also lost a fumble on an ill-advised handoff decision as he was falling backward. Cousins has been keeping his head above water in fantasy, but lacked his 2015 ceiling. He'll be on the QB1/2 borderline against the Bengals in London next week.
