Rob Gronkowski caught 3-of-7 targets for 51 yards in Week 7 against Atlanta.

Gronkowski had a huge catch overturned for offensive pass interference in the first half. He couldn't get anything going with Tom Brady, and wasn't needed with the Patriots running the clock to protect their lead. This will likely go down as one of his worst games of the season. Gronkowski should rebound against the Chargers in Week 8

Austin Hooper caught one pass for six yards in Week 7 against the Patriots.

Hooper didn't start, and was a non-factor in the pass game. It's a letdown after he was targeted nine times last week. Hooper has been highly inconsistent this year. He's not on the Week 8 streaming radar.

Taylor Gabriel caught two passes for 27 yards in Week 7 against the Patriots.

Gabriel had a goal-line carry on an end around, but couldn't score. He saw his role reduced with Mohamed Sanu back in the lineup. Gabriel can be dropped in redraft leagues.
Oct 23 - 12:13 AM

Mohamed Sanu caught 6-of-10 targets for 65 yards in Week 7 against the Patriots.

Sanu saw seven of his ten targets in the first half. He had a featured role in his first game back from a hamstring injury. Sanu is trending up, but is just a WR4 for Week 8.
Oct 23 - 12:11 AM

Danny Amendola caught 3-of-4 passes for 17 yards in Week 7 against the Falcons.

It was another low-volume week for Amendola. He has just nine targets over the last two games. Amendola should be avoided in Week 8 against the Chargers.
Oct 23 - 12:09 AM

Chris Hogan caught 4-of-6 passes for 71 yards in Week 7 against the Falcons.

Hogan led the Patriots in receiving and finished behind only Rob Gronkowski in targets. He missed some time to be checked for concussion, but returned to the game. Hogan didn't look limited with the rib injury that cost him practice time this week. He should avoid Chargers CB Casey Hayward in Week 8.
Oct 23 - 12:07 AM

Brandin Cooks caught 4-of-5 targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Falcons.

Cooks scored on an 11-yard shuffle pass in second quarter. He's now went over 60 yards in three straight games, but it's his first touchdown since Week 3. Cooks will be a WR2 for Week 8 against the Chargers.
Oct 23 - 12:04 AM

Julio Jones caught 9-of-13 passes for 99 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Patriots.

Jones had just two catches at halftime. He didn't come alive until late in the game with the Falcons in comeback mode. Jones couldn’t come down with his first two red-zone targets, but finally scored on a goal-line fade over CB Malcolm Butler. It was his first touchdown of the season. Even with Matt Ryan struggling, Jones will remain a WR1 in Week 8 against the Jets.
Oct 23 - 12:00 AM

Tevin Coleman rushed six times for 16 yards in Week 7 against the Patriots.

Coleman surprisingly wasn't involved in the pass game despite the Falcons getting blown out. He struggled to get anything going early, and played just 19 snaps. Coleman should be more involved in Week 8 against the Chargers.
Oct 22 - 11:56 PM

Rex Burkhead rushed six times for 31 yards in Week 7 against the Falcons.

Burkhead led the Patriots in first-half carries, but wasn't involved after that. He saw just 13 snaps in his first game back. Burkhead should be avoided in Week 8 against the Chargers.
Oct 22 - 11:54 PM

James White rushed four times for 19 yards and caught five passes for 28 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Falcons.

It was White’s first touchdown since the Super Bowl. He got open on the final drive before halftime for a two-yard TD, but that was his only highlight of the night. White saw the second most snaps behind Dion Lewis and has a secure role in the pass game. He'll get a matchup with the Chargers in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 11:51 PM

Mike Gillislee had eight carries for 31 yards in Week 7 against the Falcons.

Gillislee remained behind Dion Lewis and James White, and saw the same amount of snaps as Rex Burkhead. The Patriots had a four-back committee, with Gillislee getting most of his touches late in the game. Gillislee had a chance to score in the second half, but couldn’t convert his only goal-line carry. He isn't more than a touchdown-dependent RB3 for Week 8
Oct 22 - 11:49 PM

Dion Lewis rushed 13 times for 76 yards in Week 7 against the Falcons.

Lewis started and continued to play ahead of Mike Gillislee. He was the preferred option on early downs, leading the backfield with 26 snaps. Lewis is the touch favorite going forward, but the Patriots are shaping up as a true four-man committee. Lewis will be an RB3/FLEX for Week 8 against the Chargers.
Oct 22 - 11:46 PM

Devonta Freeman had 12 carries for 72 yards and caught three passes for 18 yards in Week 7 against the Patriots.

It's a solid game considering the Falcons played from behind all night. Freeman dominated carries and snaps over Tevin Coleman, who was held to six touches. It's the second straight week Freeman has been held out of the end-zone. Freeman has a matchup with the Jets in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 11:42 PM

Matt Ryan completed 23-of-33 passes for 233 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Patriots.

Ryan played worse than his stats, with most of his yardage coming in the fourth quarter. He salvaged his night on an underthrown end-zone fade to Julio Jones that was almost intercepted. Ryan has been down this year, with just one touchdown or less in 5-of-6 games. Even in a plus matchup, Ryan won't be more than a back-end QB1 for Week 8 against the Jets.
