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 Eagles, 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.
Jordan Matthews caught 3-of-4 targets for 10 yards Week 7 against the Vikings.
Matthews had been a steady contributor this season, going for at least 65 yards or a touchdown in every game. Carson Wentz struggled in this game, however, and the Vikings are one of the best defenses in the league. Despite the bad day, Matthews should get back on track next week against the Cowboys, who have struggled to cover slot receivers all season.
Dennis Pitta caught 4-of-10 targets for 40 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Jets.
Pitta has seen ten targets in each of Steve Smith Sr.'s missed games, but he still hasn't scored a touchdown since December of 2013. A high-volume tight end in the Ravens' high-volume passing game, Pitta has PPR value but much less in standard scoring leagues. Baltimore will face Pittsburgh after a Week 8 bye.
Wendell Smallwood rushed four times for 13 yards Week 7 against the Vikings.
Smallwood did see a handful of snaps, but he is clearly behind Ryan Mathews. Perhaps that changes after Mathews fumbled again late in a game, but for now, he is just a handcuff and a weak one at that.
Darren Sproles rushed three times for 26 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 23 yards Week 7 against the Vikings.
Sproles had zero touches at halftime, but he contributed a couple big plays as the offense started to get something going in the second half. It did not matter against Minnesota, but Sproles was surprisingly involved in the red zone. If he starts to become a bigger factor near the end zone, Sproles could become a fantasy factor outside of deep PPR formats. That is not going to happen this week against the Cowboys, however.
Kamar Aiken caught 3-of-6 targets for 55 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Jets.
He finished second on the team in receiving behind Mike Wallace (10-120). Aiken mans the slot in the absence of Steve Smith Sr., whose availability for Week 9 is uncertain. The Ravens will go on a bye in Week 8.
