Austin Hooper caught 3-of-4 targets for 48 yards in the Falcons' Week 7 win over the Giants.

It was a fall back to earth for the tight end after totaling 18 catches for 145 yards and a touchdown the previous two weeks. Hooper made a big 36-yard catch in this one. He maybe should have had a 22-yard touchdown as well, but Matt Ryan threw it behind him at the goal line in the first half. Hooper will remain a TE1 going forward coming out of the bye in Week 9 against the Skins.

Evan Engram caught 2-of-4 targets for 16 yards in the Giants' Week 7 loss to the Falcons.

It was Engram's first game back from a sprained MCL suffered in Week 3. His four targets were a distant fourth on the team behind Odell Beckham (11), Saquon Barkley (10), and Sterling Shepard (8). Engram has better days ahead and will remain a default TE1 next week against the Redskins.

Calvin Ridley caught 5-of-6 targets for 43 yards in the Falcons' Week 7 win over the Giants.

Ridley's ankle didn't seem to be a problem at all. His six targets were second-most on the team to Julio Jones' 12, but Ridley was unable to do anything big with them. Ridley will get the bye week to get back to 100 percent ahead of a Week 9 road date with the Redskins where he'll again be a WR2/3.

Mohamed Sanu caught both of his targets for 21 yards in the Falcons' Week 7 win over the Giants.

Sanu had no issues with his hip injury; he just didn't see many targets as Julio Jones garnered 12 and deep reserve WR Marvin Hall also caught a 47-yard score. Sanu will be a WR4 in Week 9 at the Redskins after the bye.

Ito Smith rushed seven times for 16 yards in the Falcons' Week 7 win over the Giants.

He added two catches for 29 yards on two targets and was out-touched 13-9 by Tevin Coleman, who amassed 82 yards and scored a touchdown. Smith's biggest play was a 20-yard catch on a blitz-beater. Smith will remain on the FLEX map as Coleman's 1B coming out of the bye in Week 9.
Oct 22 - 11:52 PM

Eli Manning completed 27-of-38 passes for 399 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 7 loss to the Falcons.

Manning had a huge second half, but the offense really struggled in the red zone. Manning didn't throw his touchdown until he heaved a prayer for a one-yard score to Odell Beckham with five seconds left on the clock after Manning failed to score on consecutive QB sneaks from the one-yard line. Earlier in the game, he missed OBJ on an open nine-yard touchdown before the Giants had to settle for a field goal. Manning's 399 yards mark a season-best, but this offense is still broken. Manning won't be a recommended play next week against the Redskins.
Oct 22 - 11:48 PM

Tevin Coleman rushed 11 times for 50 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons' Week 7 win over the Giants.

He added 32 yards through the air by catching both of his targets. Coleman started the night off with a 14-yard run and ended it with a 30-yard touchdown run where he went untouched through the right side. He lives off big plays and hasn't been making many of them this season. But Coleman out-played Ito Smith by a wide margin, out-gaining him 82-45 on four more touches. Coleman gets a bye and will remain an RB2 in Week 9 against the Redskins.
Oct 22 - 11:45 PM

Sterling Shepard caught 5-of-8 targets for 167 yards in the Giants' Week 7 loss to the Falcons.

Shepard had monster gains of 53 and 58 to aid his huge evening against this porous defense. It was Shepard's first 100-yard game of the season and the most of his career after topping 100 yards just four times his first two seasons. Shepard will be a solid if unspectacular WR3 next week against the Skins.
Oct 22 - 11:37 PM

Matt Ryan completed 31-of-39 passes for 379 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons' Week 7 win over the Giants.

Ryan took three first-half sacks but wasn't sacked after the break; anytime he had time to throw, Ryan was dicing up this defense with relative ease. He hit deep reserve WR Marvin Hall for a 47-yard touchdown over the top. Ryan should have had a 60-yard touchdown to Julio Jones on top of that but underthrew the ball as he hit his hand on a helmet on the follow-through. Atlanta had to settle for a trio of Giorgio Tavecchio field goals tonight. Ryan and the Falcons are going into their bye week ahead of a road date with the Redskins in Week 9.
Oct 22 - 11:33 PM

Saquon Barkley rushed 14 times for 43 yards and one touchdown and caught 9-of-10 targets for 51 yards in the Giants' 23-20, Week 7 loss to the Falcons on Monday night.

It's the first time this season Barkley has been held to fewer than 100 yards from scrimmage, but he made up for it with a boat load of catches, the short touchdown, and a two-point conversion at the end of the game. Barkley just did not have much room to work with on the ground behind this pitiful offensive line and against a defense that got DT Grady Jarrett back from injury. Barkley still remains an elite RB1 no matter the matchup and will get the Redskins in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 11:28 PM

Julio Jones caught 9-of-12 targets for 104 yards in the Falcons' 23-20, Week 7 win over the Giants on Monday night.

Standard day at the office for Jones; he got his 100 yards and remains without a touchdown on the season. There was an opening for one, but Matt Ryan underthrew Jones on what should have been a walk-in 60-yard touchdown. Ryan hit his hand on a helmet on the follow-through, and Jones had to stop for the ball, drawing a 38-yard pass interference instead. On two of the next three plays, Ryan tried to get Jones the ball in the end zone, but Jones was double-covered both times. Jones also lost a fumble in this one. The Falcons are on their bye now before going to D.C. in Week 9.
Oct 22 - 11:23 PM

Odell Beckham caught 8-of-11 targets for 143 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' 23-20, Week 7 loss to the Falcons on Monday night.

Beckham had a relatively quiet first half with three catches for 57 yards, but he beat the defense for a 51-yard strike on a double-move in the third quarter then caught a pair of sideline passes in the fourth quarter to set up a Saquon Barkley touchdown run. With the Giants then trailing 23-12 with five seconds left in the game, Beckham caught a meaningless-to-the-game one-yard touchdown. But that score likely swung a lot of fantasy matchups and also allowed the Giants to backdoor the +4 spread for bettors. OBJ has four 100-yard games this year and gets the Redskins at home in Week 8.

49ers placed FS Adrian Colbert on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain.

He's out until Week 16 at the earliest and should be fully healthy by then. Colbert was injured in the Week 7 loss to the Rams. Rookie D.J. Reed replaced him. Colbert is Pro Football Focus' worst cover safety out of 89 qualifiers.
Oct 22 - 7:07 PM

Ed Dickson (groin, NFI) returned to practice Monday.

Dickson is fully expected to be activated to make his Seahawks debut this week. Coach Pete Carroll says Dickson has a chance to play "quite a bit" in his return. Dickson could become a streaming option at a weak position. With Will Dissly (knee) out for the year, Dickson's competition is Nick Vannett.
Oct 22 - 6:56 PM

Giants declared QB Kyle Lauletta, OG Patrick Omameh, WR Jawill Davis, S Kamrin Moore, WR Russell Shepard, CB Mike Jordan, and DT John Jenkins inactive for Week 7 against the Falcons.

No surprises here. Davis, Omameh, and Shepard are all injured.
