Kapri Bibbs rushed two times for 16 yards, adding four catches for 43 yards and one touchdown through the air in the Redskins' Week 7 win over the Cowboys.

Oct 21 - 8:47 PM

Adrian Peterson handled a team-high 24 carries for 99 yards in Washington's Week 7 victory over the Cowboys.

Peterson again led Washington's backfield in carries by a healthy margin without Chris Thompson available for the second consecutive week. All Day out-carried third-down back Kapri Bibbs 24-2 on Sunday, now having out-carried the latter 41-4 in the Redskins' last two games. He's bulldozed his way to 196 yards (4.78 YPC) in that span, too. If Thompson remains out in Week 8 against the Giants, Peterson will again be a clear-cut usage-based RB2.
Oct 21 - 8:36 PM

Geoff Swaim clenched all three of his targets for 25 yards in the Cowboys' Week 7 loss to Washington.

Rookie Dalton Schultz was additionally active for the first time all year, giving the Cowboys four active tight ends on game day. Swaim led the group with 25 receiving yards, but all saw at least one target. If you hadn't streamed Swaim to this point, that ship's sailed.
Oct 21 - 8:30 PM

Allen Hurns caught 5-of-6 targets for a season-high 74 yards in the Cowboys' Week 7 loss to the Redskins.

It was the first time Hurns eclipsed the 30-yard mark all year. His only touchdown on the season remains his Week 5 score against the Texans in which he was left wide open in the back of the end zone. The Cowboys can barely support one receiver, let alone two. Hurns shouldn't be owned.
Oct 21 - 8:29 PM

Pierre Garcon took his only target five yards in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

With C.J. Beathard struggling, Garcon never had a chance. He has still failed to top 60 yards in any game this season, and he has scored a touchdown since Week 14 of the 2016 season. He can be left on the wire.
Oct 21 - 8:27 PM

Marquise Goodwin hauled in 2-of-5 targets for 24 yards in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Goodwin left the game briefly with a lower-leg injury, but he was able to return and catch two passes deep into garbage time. It was a disappointing follow up to his 126-yard, two-touchdown explosion on Monday night, but it is promising he easily led the receivers with five targets. The matchup next week in Arizona is not great, but Goodwin will be worth a look as a WR3.
Oct 21 - 8:27 PM

Alfred Morris rushed nine times for 25 yards in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Even with Raheem Mostert once again stacking big gains, Morris led the team with nine carries as Matt Breida struggled with his ankle injury. Mostert would seem to have earned an even bigger role moving forward, especially if Breida is forced to miss time, but it does not seem like Morris is going away. Even so, he is not a fantasy option right now.

Matt Breida rushed five times for 15 yards in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

As has become too common, Breida aggravated his ankle injury early in this game. He quickly came back after getting re-taped, but he limped off the field against during the two-minute touchdown drive at the end of the first half and did not touch the ball again. Perhaps the 49ers were just playing it safe in the blowout loss. Breida has a great matchup next week against the Cardinals, but his injury history will make him a risky play even if he is able to suit up.
Oct 21 - 8:25 PM

Willie Snead caught 3-of-7 targets for 23 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Saints.

Amazingly, this was Snead's worst game of the season. He's averaging a solid 48 weekly yards but not really doing much with them in the way of catches or scores. He hasn't found the end zone since Week 1. Snead is just a desperation PPR fill-in.
Oct 21 - 8:16 PM

Cole Beasley recorded seven receptions on a team-high eight targets for 56 yards in the Cowboys' Week 7 heart-breaking loss to the Redskins.

Beasley came crashing back to Earth following his outta-nowhere 9/101/2 performance against the Jaguars last week, catching his typical seven passes for a median amount of yards versus the Redskins. He reverted back into a possession receiver used strictly over the middle or near the sidelines, helping move the ball rather than erupt for explosive over-the-top plays. Expect a similar performance once the Cowboys return and face the Titans following next week's bye.
Oct 21 - 8:16 PM

Aaron Donald recorded four sacks, six tackles for loss, and a forced fumble in the Rams' Week 7 win over the 49ers.

Donald absolutely dominated this game as the Rams sacked C.J. Beathard seven times and forced four turnovers. One of those turnovers was a play in which Donald ripped the ball right out of Matt Breida's hands, setting the offense up for their first touchdown. After a slow start, Donald now has eight sacks in his last four games.
Oct 21 - 8:15 PM

Ben Watson caught 6-of-6 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

Both the grabs and targets were Watson's most of the season. The score was his first of the year. Watson is averaging just 38 weekly yards, but that is more than enough to make him a weekly TE2 in a down campaign for the position.
Oct 21 - 8:14 PM

Cameron Meredith was not targeted in the Saints' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

It's a step back for Meredith after he went 5-of-5 for 71 yards in Week 5. Drew Brees' volume has been down during that span — coinciding with Mark Ingram's return — and Tre'Quan Smith has looked like the biggest beneficiary of Ted Ginn's absence. Meredith isn't much of a WR5 for the time being.
Oct 21 - 8:12 PM

Tre'Quan Smith caught 3-of-6 targets for 44 yards in the Saints' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

Smith almost made a one-handed catch in the end zone in the first quarter but couldn't haul it in. It was a quiet day thereafter, though Smith made an excellent sideline grab. He has six receptions on nine targets in two contests with Ted Ginn sidelined. Drew Brees is averaging just 30 attempts in two games since Mark Ingram's return, and the Saints are headed on the road to take on the Vikings' tough defense in Week 8. It could be a minute before Smith becomes a legitimate WR4.
Oct 21 - 8:03 PM

Michael Gallup hauled in 3-of-5 targets for a team-high 81 yards and one score in Dallas' Week 7 loss to the Redskins.

With Tavon Austin inactive, Gallup was afforded additional opportunity and delivered with a team- and career-high 81 receiving yards. 49 yards came on a deep-ball over the top in which Gallup simply beat the defense and found himself wide open near the sideline. Dallas' leading receiver seems to rotate weekly, but this is a great development for the rookie in the event Austin misses any further time. The Cowboys are on bye next week.
