Spencer Ware rolled to 77 yards on 17 carries and added two catches for 54 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over the Saints.
He contributed 104 yards from scrimmage in the first half with 46 coming on a gorgeous first-quarter touchdown. Ware turned on the jets after hauling in a short screen pass from Alex Smith, juking a number of defenders including Jairus Byrd on his way to the end zone. The play was aided by a solid block from wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. Ware out-touched Jamaal Charles by an overwhelming 19-1 margin on Sunday. He has another enticing matchup next week against the Colts and should be considered an RB1 until further notice.
Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 61 yards and caught 5-of-5 targets for 21 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 7 win over the Titans.
Always a reliable bet for volume, Gore struggled to find running room but atoned with another big workload and an early-game receiving score from three yards out. While Gore is never a good bet for big box-score stats, he keeps the Colts' offense "on schedule" with tough running and has seen his passing game role expand as the season has progressed. He will continue to be a solid RB2 option in season-long leagues when the Colts host the Chiefs in Week 8.
Mike Gillislee rushed five times for 20 yards in the Bills' Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.
Stefon Diggs caught 2-of-5 targets for 18 yards Week 7 against the Eagles.
Diggs looked fully healthy despite coming into the game with a groin injury, but he was once again not a factor with the offense struggling to move the football. After exploding for 285 yards the first two games, Diggs has not topped 47 in his last three. It is a worryingly similar script to the one he followed as a rookie. The Vikings should have more success against the Bears, but Diggs will be nothing more than a WR3.
Justin Forsett rushed eight times for 33 yards in the Lions' Week 7 win over the Redskins, adding two receptions for 15 additional yards.
Zach Zenner started in Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington's continued absence, but rotated pretty evenly with Forsett. Zenner got his veteran backfield mate on snaps, but Forsett had more touches (10-9) and more yards (48-29). With at least one of Riddick and Washington likely to return next Sunday, Forsett won't be on the RB3 radar.
Blake Bortles completed 23-of-43 passes for 246 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Week 7 against the Raiders.
Bortles threw his only touchdown to Julius Thomas deep into the fourth quarter. The entire Jacksonville offense couldn't do anything in a plus spot against Oakland. Bortles faced constant pressures despite taking only one sack. Almost all his yards came on garbage-time check downs to Marqise Lee. In full regression from last year's 35-TDs, Bortles will be a matchup-play QB2 for Week 8 against Tennessee.
Andrew Luck completed 27-of-39 passes for 353 yards and three touchdowns in the Colts' Week 7 win over the Titans.
He finished with 370 total yards, adding 17 with his legs. T.Y. Hilton (7-133-1) was simply unstoppable in this game, carrying the Colts' passing game along with possession target Jack Doyle, who broke out for 9-78-1 receiving. In order to offset their pass-protection woes, the Colts smartly dialed up a quick-hitting attack designed for Luck to get rid of the ball quickly. It worked to perfection. Luck has another unimposing matchup in Week 8 at home against the Chiefs, who are struggling to rush the passer this year.
Giovani Bernard rushed 17 times for 80 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 7 win over the Browns.
He added one catch for seven yards. Jeremy Hill had the huge numbers with 168 yards and one touchdown, but Bernard actually out-carried Hill 17-9 in this one. Hill set up Bernard's early five-yard touchdown with a 40-yard run on the play before. Bernard has been getting more work than Hill for the past few weeks. Both are RB2 plays in a plus date with the Redskins in Week 8.
