Dede Westbrook caught 4-of-4 targets for 17 yards in the Jaguars’ Week 7 loss to the Texans.

Westbrook got loose for no big plays as the Jaguars switched quarterbacks, benching Blake Bortles for Cody Kessler early in the third quarter. Donte Moncrief, T.J. Yeldon, Keelan Cole, and rookie D.J. Chark all drew more targets than Westbrook, who will be a dicey WR4/flex option when the Jaguars head to London to face the Eagles next.

Baker Mayfield completed 23-of-34 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 7 loss to the Buccaneers.

Mayfield added a season-high 43 rushing yards on four carries on the ground. The day overall was a disappointment for fantasy owners as the Bucs had allowed a 300-yard passer in every game to date prior to Sunday. Mayfield and the Browns were invisible in the first half as he threw for just 62 yards through the opening two quarters. In the second half, Mayfield found David Njoku for a 15-yard score to open the half and then connected with Jarvis Landry for a 16-yard score to tie the game with 2:28 left in regulation. Mayfield was under constant duress once again, taking five sacks, the third straight game in which he was sacked at least five times. His one blemish on the day was when he rushed for a clear first down deep in Tampa Bay territory on fourth down, but then fumbled the ball backwards out of bounds behind the sticks, costing the Browns at least a field goal attempt. After failing to cash in a great matchup, Mayfield will only be a QB2 option Week 8 when the Browns head to Pit

Nick O'Leary caught 2-of-3 targets for 23 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Lions.

Oct 21 - 5:47 PM

Danny Amendola caught 6-of-7 targets for 84 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Lions.

With DeVante Parker inactive and Albert Wilson (hip) banged up early, Amendola posted a new season-high for yardage. He now has 14 grabs on 18 targets over his past two games. With Kenny Stills joining Wilson on the shelf late against the Lions, Amendola could have some Week 8 relevance against the Texans.
Oct 21 - 5:43 PM

Keelan Cole caught 2-of-7 targets for 21 yards in the Jaguars’ Week 7 loss to the Texans.

It was an inefficient day for Cole as the Jaguars benched Blake Bortles and turned to game-manager backup Cody Kessler for 30 second-half pass attempts. Even in a favorable matchup, Cole will be a low-floor WR4 option as the Jaguars head to London for Week 8 to face the Eagles.

Jordan Howard rushed 12 times for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

He added nine yards on one catch. Howard continued to split carries with Tarik Cohen even when the game was close and struggled to find consistent success on the ground, but he helped out his fantasy backers with a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He appeared to have another score on the first drive of the second half, but the play was negated by an illegal formation penalty. He did surprise with a twisting catch on his only target, but Howard mostly took a backseat from that point on with the Bears trailing. He now has 14 or fewer touches in each of his last three games. Howard will be an RB3/FLEX option next week against the Jets.

Cameron Brate caught 3-of-4 targets for 23 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

Brate lost a fumble on one of his three catches that the Bucs were fortunate to have come back to haunt them. Brate has just 15 targets on the season and only has true fantasy value if something were to happen to O.J. Howard.
Oct 21 - 5:42 PM

Mike Gesicki caught 3-of-3 targets for 44 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Lions.

Gesicki was also evaluated for a concussion but thankfully cleared. The 44 yards were a new career high. He could break that number again in Week 8 if neither Albert Wilson (hip) nor Kenny Stills (leg) can get cleared for Thursday Night Football against the Texans. That being said, Gesicki will remain a last-gasp TE2.
Oct 21 - 5:41 PM

Donte Moncrief caught 7-of-10 targets for 76 yards in the Jaguars’ Week 7 loss to the Texans.

Moncrief led the team in targets and receiving in a game where Blake Bortles was benched for losing multiple fumbles, and Cody Kessler wound up attempting 30 passes in a half as the Jaguars played from behind. The week before, Moncrief went catch-less on three targets. Although Week 8 against the Eagles poses a favorable matchup, Moncrief’s wild week-to-week inconsistency will render him a boom-bust WR3/flex option.
Oct 21 - 5:40 PM

O.J. Howard caught 5-of-9 passes for 67 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

Howard's nine targets were the most he's had in a game this season. His best play of the day came on a 24-yard catch over a defender in which he was down at the 2-yard line. Howard now has 20 catches for 351 yards and two scores through six games and will be a lower-TE1 option against a Bengals team that has struggled to defend the tight end position all season.
Oct 21 - 5:39 PM

Jakeem Grant caught 2-of-2 targets for 32 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Lions.

Grant has just 84 yards receiving over his past four games but will likely be needed for a bigger role in Week 8. Both Albert Wilson and Kenny Stills got banged up against the Lions, and the Dolphins are headed on a short week for Thursday Night Football. Grant is a waiver wire add to keep in mind.
Oct 21 - 5:39 PM

T.J. Yeldon rushed 12 times for 28 yards and caught 5-of-7 targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars’ Week 7 loss to Houston.

Yeldon operated as Jacksonville’s feature back for one last week; Carlos Hyde will likely take over as the Jags’ primary ball carrier in Week 8 against the Eagles in London. Yeldon should continue to dominate passing-game work until Leonard Fournette (hamstring) returns, but he has devolved from an every-week RB2 to a low-end flex option going forward.
Oct 21 - 5:37 PM

Jordan Wilkins collected 46 yards on six carries while securing his lone target for an eight-yard gain Sunday in the Colts’ Week 7 win over Buffalo.

Oct 21 - 5:35 PM

Cody Kessler completed 21-of-30 passes for 156 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Jaguars' Week 7 loss to the Texans.

Kessler replaced Blake Bortles a little after halftime following Bortles’ second lost fumble. A weak-armed game manager, Kessler engineered just one touchdown drive. Kessler’s pick came on a dropped pass, which deflected to Texans S Tyrann Mathieu. Kessler will presumably get the Week 8 start against Philadelphia in London, although he won’t be more than a low-end two-quarterback-league play.
Oct 21 - 5:34 PM

Chester Rogers came down with four catches for 40 yards on four targets Sunday in Indianapolis’ Week 7 win over the Bills.
