Chris Hogan tallied two catches for 25 yards on two targets Sunday in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Steelers.
Hogan coughed it up on the Patriots’ first play from scrimmage, resulting in the game’s first turnover. He reeled in a 13-yarder early in the second quarter but wasn’t targeted again after that. Sunday extended Hogan’s touchdown drought to six games. He’ll have plenty of motivation to play well next week when he returns to Buffalo. Hogan remains well off the fantasy radar.
Jacob Tamme's lone catch in Atlanta's Week 7 loss to the Chargers was a 17-yard touchdown.
Tamme drew three targets. With Atlanta going with more of a rotation at tight end, Tamme has six catches for 37 yards over his past four games. His TE2 moment has come and gone.
LeGarrette Blount turned 24 carries into 127 yards and two touchdowns and added one catch for seven yards Sunday in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Steelers.
Blount set the tone with 13 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown in the first half. His TD came on a three-yard scamper early in the second quarter. Blount kept the engine running in the second half by contributing his longest run of the day on a 25-yard burst midway through the third quarter. He capped the outing with another touchdown early in the fourth quarter, this time punching it in from five yards. Blount has already established a new career-high in touchdowns with eight, which puts him in a three-way tie with David Johnson and Melvin Gordon for the league lead. He’ll be in play as an RB2 next week against a Buffalo run defense that just allowed 214 yards to Jay Ajayi.
Mohamed Sanu caught 2-of-4 targets for 16 yards in Atlanta's Week 7 loss to the Chargers.
It was an utter flop of a day from a receiver who hasn't cleared 50 yards since Week 1. Even in PPR, Sanu is a last-gasp WR4.
Dontrelle Inman caught 3-of-6 targets for 58 yards in the Chargers' Week 7 win over the Falcons.
The yards were Inman's second most of the season. Inman is a full-time member of the Chargers' pass catcher rotation, but it isn't translating to fantasy value. Even in PPR, he can't be trusted as a WR5.
Martellus Bennett snagged one-of-two targets for five yards Sunday in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Steelers.
His only catch came early in the third quarter on an unsuccessful third-down conversion. Since blowing up for three touchdowns against Cleveland in Week 5, Bennett has managed just six catches for 53 yards over his last two games. New England still runs plenty of two-tight-end sets and Bennett never really had a chance Sunday with the Patriots leaning heavily on LeGarrette Blount. Though his stock is headed in the wrong direction, fantasy owners should still treat him as a borderline TE1 next week at Buffalo.
Tyrell Williams caught 7-of-10 targets for 140 yards in San Diego's Week 7 win over the Falcons.
Williams tied Antonio Gates for the team lead in targets, but compiled 102 more yards. Both the catches and yards were new career highs. Williams has surpassed 100 yards receiving in 2-of-3 games, and is up to 526 on the season. He's forced his way into the WR2 conversation, but has a tough Week 8 matchup in the Broncos, who held Williams to 28 yards in Week 6.
Rob Gronkowski delivered four catches for 93 yards and a touchdown on four targets Sunday in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Steelers.
Remember Gronk’s slow start? Neither do we. Gronkowski was only targeted once in the first half but he let it rip after halftime with 80 yards on three catches. He blew past Robert Golden for a 36-yard score in the third quarter and later chewed up 37 yards on a slant route to set New England up with a first-and-goal at the five-yard-line. Gronk has averaged a preposterous 121.3 receiving yards per game with two touchdowns since reuniting with Tom Brady in Week 5. Back to being the best tight end on the face of the Earth, Gronk should be in for another absurd game next week at Buffalo.
