LeSean McCoy acknowledged he felt "a little pain" in his hamstring while running a pass route in the third quarter of Sunday's loss to Miami.
Asked if it would have been better to sit against the Dolphins, McCoy replied "You might be right." Players always want to play, but it is incumbent on teams to protect themselves from players in situations such as this. Coach Rex Ryan took the ignorance-is-bliss approach after Sunday's game, saying "We thought he was fine" and "I don't know that he wasn't 100 percent." McCoy is now very possibly staring at a multi-week absence. Great job, Bills.
DeVante Parker caught 3-of-4 targets for 20 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bills.
Parker was out-played by Kenny Stills, who hung a 5-100-1 line on the Bills on the back of a 66-yard touchdown. Parker has been held to 28 yards or fewer in three of the past four games. He's hard to trust as anything more than a WR4 with the Dolphins headed into their bye week. Parker gets the Jets in Week 9.
Justin Hunter caught 2-of-4 targets for 25 yards in the Bills' Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.
Hunter played all but four offensive snaps with Robert Woods (foot) hurt, but the increase in playing time didn't lead to any extra production. He was still no more than the No. 3 pass-game option. Hunter isn't a fantasy play.
T.J. Yeldon had six carries for 24 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for four yards in Week 7 against Oakland.
Jacksonville attempted only 11 run plays in a game they played from behind. Yeldon continued to start, but rotated evenly with Chris Ivory and finished with the same touches. The Jaguars have been one of the worst running teams in the league after ranking in the bottom-ten last year. OC Greg Olson is hellbent on making Yeldon split carries with a plodding 28-year-old Ivory (2.4 YPC), but Ivory's been the more relevant back the past two weeks. Even in a plus Week 8 matchup with Tennessee, Yeldon can't be trusted as more than a game-flow dependent RB3.
Tevin Coleman was forced from Atlanta's Week 7 game against the Chargers with a hamstring injury, and is questionable to return.
Coleman went down midway through the third quarter. His injury wasn't obvious in the flow of the game. The explosive sophomore had eight carries for 64 yards and a touchdown before pulling up. His score was a 30-yarder where he got a great block and then out-ran everyone to the house. Coleman was spotted trying to get loose on the sideline, but appeared done for the day.
Jarvis Landry caught 5-of-8 targets for 78 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bills.
Landry's best grab was a 26-yarder. The problem, however, is that Landry isn't and never has been scoring touchdowns. He has just one touchdown on the season. Landry has settled in as a WR2 in PPR leagues thanks to sheer volume. He's seen at least eight targets in 6-of-7 games. The Dolphins are heading into their bye before a Week 9 date with the Jets.
Charles Clay caught 2-of-5 targets for 29 yards in the Bills' Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.
Clay made a nice leaping 18-yard catch, but that was about it for him. He's been banged up all season and hasn't established himself as anything more than a TE2 ahead of a Week 8 date with the Patriots.
Tyler Boyd caught 1-of-3 targets for three yards in the Bengals' Week 7 win over the Browns.
After setting a season-high with 79 yards in Week 6, Boyd's targets disappeared in this one. Brandon LaFell out-produced him big time with a 4-83-1 line on five targets. Tyler Eifert's return also figures to not help Boyd's stock. Boyd isn't worth owning in 12-team leagues at the moment.
