According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Packers' organization views No. 61 pick Eddie Lacy as an every-down back.

"We feel really good about taking him," said GM Ted Thompson. "We really did. He's big and powerful. He's got a great lateral cut and spin move." Added Packers college scouting director Brian Gutekunst, "He catches it very, very well. As a pass blocker, he's able to step in there and stop people." If Lacy wins the every-down back role in training camp, he'll offer mammoth first-year fantasy upside in the Packers' high-scoring offense.

Coach Bruce Arians intimated Tramon Williams will be starting ahead of CB Justin Bethel for Week 7 against the Rams.

It has been looking like this was going to be the course of action all week. Per Arians, Williams is "in a bunch of packages, and he’ll be playing a bunch." Bethel has been getting flamed in coverage all year, allowing six touchdowns, two more than any other corner charted by Pro Football Focus, and is the site's No. 99 cover corner out of 108 qualifiers. Williams is 34 and coming off a horrific 2016 with the Browns, when he graded out as PFF's No. 102 cover man out of 120 corners. It's still a matchup to exploit. Williams should see a lot of Robert Woods on Sunday.

Coach Bruce Arians said CB Patrick Peterson (quad) has looked "fine" and will play Week 7 against the Rams.

Peterson had to be pulled from Week 6 against the Bucs and was limited in practice this week. However, he's ready to roll for his date with Sammy Watkins, who has been a complete non-factor since his big game against the 49ers a few Thursdays ago. Watkins will remain that way in Peterson's shadow coverage. Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp have better matchups.

Andre Ellington (quad) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Ellington was limited Wednesday before being downgraded to DNP Thursday and Friday. Second in the league among running backs in targets over the past four weeks, Ellington has been a big asset in PPR leagues. But in Adrian Peterson's first game with the team last week, Ellington put up a zero.

Tyreek Hill caught 6-of-8 targets for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

Hill added two rushes for seven yards. The Chiefs entered Week 7 manufacturing frustratingly few touches for their mega-play threat, but finally got proactive this evening, getting the ball in Hill's hands a number of different ways. The biggest play of the night was Hill's 64-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Dispatched downfield in ordinary fashion, Hill took ownership of David Amerson's soul, running right by the 6-foot-1, 205-pound corner. The 100-yard game was Hill's first since Week 1, though he's now averaging a healthy 74 yards. It's going to remain a wild ride, and this peak could be followed by a valley in Week 8 against the Broncos' elite secondary.

Derek Carr completed 29-of-52 passes for 417 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Raiders' 31-30, Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

The Raiders franchise has played a lot of insane games over the decades, but this one will rank right up there with them. In a contest beset by penalties — many questionable — big plays and bigger miscues, Carr never stopped throwing, piling up the second most yards of his career. Carr struggled much of the evening, airmailing some easy throws and failing to pick on the Chiefs corners in 1-on-1 coverage. CBS analyst Tony Romo was beside himself more than once. But Carr locked onto Amari Cooper, who made a number of deep grabs, and indeed started attacking the perimeter late. His pass catchers responded with huge catches. Carr now has 10 days to rest his recently-broken back. Oakland ventures to Buffalo for Week 8.

Alex Smith completed 25-of-36 passes for 342 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Chiefs' 31-30, Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

The 342 yards were the fourth most of Smith's career, while he's now the owner of a 15:0 TD:INT ratio through the season's first seven games. Victimized by awful calls by the referees and big plays by the Raiders, the Chiefs did everything but win. "New Alex" continued to aggressively target his weapons downfield, resulting in a 64-yard Tyreek Hill touchdown and fluky 63-yard Albert Wilson score on a ball that should have been picked. Smith's hot play will be put to the test in Week 8, where the Chiefs host the Broncos' imposing defense for Monday Night Football.

Amari Cooper caught 11-of-19 targets for 210 yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

Targeted on the first snap of the game, it was clear early on we were finally seeing a different Cooper. The third-year pro entered the evening the owner of an 18/146/1 line, good for 125th in the league in yardage. He exited it doubling his totals across the board, and with a new career high in yards. It was a fittingly bonkers performance, as Cooper's first touchdown, a 38-yarder on a flea flicker, featured a fairly blatant pushoff. It was not called by the referees. Cooper's second score was a 45-yarder where he ripped a hole in soft zone coverage. Along the way, Cooper committed a brutal drop and drew a 47-yard defensive pass interference penalty. Truly, everything happened. Cooper will look to get a hot streak going in next week's road trip to Buffalo.

Marshawn Lynch was ejected from the Raiders' Week 7 game against the Chiefs after shoving a referee.

For some reason, the Raiders dialed up a draw for Derek Carr on a second quarter 3rd-and-10. It failed spectacularly, with Carr taking numerous hits. The Raiders took exception and Lynch came racing in from the sideline. He then shoved a referee during the ensuing scrum. The crew had no choice but to eject him. Lynch carried the ball just twice for nine yards before being tossed, and was ceding lots of snaps and touches to Jalen Richard. It's possible he earns a suspension for Week 8 against Buffalo.

A source tells the Miami Herald DeVante Parker (ankle) is feeling "much better" despite missing Wednesday and Thursday's practices.

Speaking earlier Thursday, OC Clyde Christensen said the team was "holding out hope" Parker would return. Apparently it wasn't just coachspeak. The tea leaves still suggest Parker will be sitting against the Jets. If he does play, his health will make him a fantasy wild card.
Oct 19 - 7:34 PM

Albert Wilson (knee) is active for Week 7 against the Raiders.

Wilson was trending toward not playing before being declared a game-time decision. He's evidently healthy enough to soak up snaps for the Chiefs' banged up receiver corps. Wilson is not an advised Week 7 fantasy option. Inactive for the Chiefs are RB Charcandrick West, OG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, C Mitch Morse, QB Tyler Bray, LB Ramik Wilson, CB D.J. White and DL Roy Miller.

Seahawks DE Cliff Avril (neck, injured reserve) says he's not considering retirement.

Avril said he's getting "numerous" opinions, but that he plans to return for an 11th NFL season in 2018. Coach Pete Carroll is one of the sources who has suggested Avril has played his final down of football. It's always a possibility with neck issues. Due $7.5 million between salary and bonuses next season, Avril turns 32 in April.
