Steelers signed fourth-round QB Landry Jones to a four-year contract.

The maddeningly inconsistent Jones looked like a future first-round pick at times in college, but he sees ghosts in the pocket and crumbles under pressure. He'll be the No. 3 behind Ben Roethlisberger and Bruce Gradkowski as a rookie, but some think the Steelers will try to groom Jones as Big Ben's successor.

Marcus Mariota completed 21-of-34 passes for 203 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

He added eight yards rushing on the ground, but this was a thoroughly disappointing game for the Tennessee passing offense with Cleveland missing Jason McCourty and Jabrill Peppers. Mariota kept everything close to the vest, rarely pushing the ball downfield and missed a wide-open Delanie Walker for a easy touchdown in the first half. Mariota has been a lackluster fantasy asset so far this season and doesn't need to be held through the Titans bye week as he comes back with games against Baltimore and Cincinnati.

Jordy Nelson caught 1-of-4 targets for 13 yards in the Packers' Week 7 loss to the Saints.

The Packers' passing attack went all the way off the rails without Aaron Rodgers, as Brett Hundley could complete just 12 passes for 87 yards in his first career start. Hundley rarely challenged outside the numbers, and seemed to have no feel for the speed of the NFL game. He thought he could wait forever for things to develop instead of forcing the issue with timing. Nelson now has the looks of a volatile WR2, and will have to deal with the Lions' solid secondary in Week 8.

Cowboys K Dan Bailey was forced from Sunday's game against the 49ers with a groin injury, and will not return.

Up 20-3, the Cowboys bizarrely went for a two-point conversion. We now know why. Safety Jeff Heath took the ensuing kickoff, and will finish the game as Dallas' leg man. The fact that Bailey was ruled out so quickly suggests he will be doubtful for Week 8.

Adrian Peterson rushed 11 times for just 21 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

He was targeted four times in the pass game, catching just one for 12 yards and dropping a pair. Peterson had a monster debut with the Cardinals in Week 6, but he crashed all the way back to Earth in this one, especially with the Cardinals falling in a deep hole and losing 33-0. Now with Carson Palmer (arm) out for eight weeks, the Cardinals will try to lean on Peterson on the ground. But with Drew Stanton under center, defenses are going to jam up the running lanes.

O.J. Howard caught 6-of-6 targets for 98 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs' Week 7 loss to the Bills.

Used lightly as a receiver and primarily as a blocker in the first five games, Howard scored twice on Sunday on beautifully-designed plays that got him wide open, including a 33-yard score on which Howard ran far behind the Bills' defense. While we wouldn't exactly call Howard trustworthy from a fantasy standpoint yet, he will be on the low end of the streaming radar in Week 8 against Carolina.
Oct 22 - 4:27 PM

Todd Gurley rushed 22 times for 106 yards and one touchdown in the Rams' 33-0, Week 7 win over the Cardinals.

He caught 4-of-8 targets for 48 yards in the passing game. After not having a single 100-yard game as a sophomore last season, Gurley now has four of those in his last five games. Gurley's touchdown was an 18-yard scamper around the left side where he turned the corner and out-ran everyone else to the end zone. An elite RB1 under coach Sean McVay, Gurley now heads into his bye.

Jameis Winston completed 32-of-44 passes for 382 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Bucs' Week 7 loss to Buffalo.

He only took one sack against a Buffalo defense that struggled to generate pressure. The Bills entered this one having allowed only two touchdown passes through five games, so Winston's big statistical output wasn't entirely expected. He threw two scores to O.J. Howard and one to Mike Evans. Winston draws a slightly softer matchup at home against the Panthers in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 4:24 PM

Mike Evans caught 7-of-10 targets for 91 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Week 7 loss to the Bills.

Evans was quiet with short catches for most of the game, but he toe-tapped a touchdown in the fourth quarter that gave the Bucs a short-lived 27-20 lead. The Bills rallied back with a LeSean McCoy touchdown and Stephen Hauschka's game-winning field goal. Keep Evans rolling as an every-week elite WR1 when the Bucs host Carolina next.
Oct 22 - 4:22 PM

T.J. Yeldon had nine carries for 122 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Colts.

He added two catches for 15 yards. Chris Ivory started with Leonard Fournette sidelined, but Yeldon was the better back. He made a double cut and scored from 58 yards out on his TD, outrunning the entire Colts secondary. Yeldon had been a healthy scratch the last few weeks, but should have a role moving forward. The Jaguars are on their bye in Week 8.

Carson Palmer suffered a broken left arm Week 7 against the Rams and needs surgery.

He's going to miss eight weeks, so this is a potential season- and career-ender for Palmer depending on his plans for 2018 and beyond. Drew Stanton was absolutely horrid in relief against the Rams, going 5-of-14 for 62 yards and a mind-numbing interception. The Cardinals' offense is one to avoid moving forward. Stanton simply isn't -- and never has been -- capable of moving the ball.

Kizer completed 12-of-20 passes for 116 yards with two interceptions and was benched for Cody Kessler in the 3rd Quarter of Cleveland's Week 8 game versus the Titans.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. After sitting out last week, Kizer had a promising start, completing 6-of-6 passes on the opening drive of the game which led to a field goal, but then quickly fell apart afterwards. His first interception came towards the end of the first half at the Tennessee 28 on an overthrow. He then threw a pick on the opening drive of the second half in Cleveland territory, which ended his day. Head Coach Hue Jackson is basically grasping at straws at this point, but it's hard to envision Cleveland going back to Kizer in the immediate future.
