Panthers RG Trai Turner (knee) will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Turner didn't return after going down in the second half. He had a brace on after the game, but doesn't expect to miss any time. With Ryan Kalil (neck) suffering a setback, the Panthers interior line is a Week 8 concern.

A.J. Derby hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 66 yards in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chargers.

Derby's day started out horribly with a lost fumble on the opening drive, but he bounced back to lead the team in receiving, although half of those catches came in garbage time. Derby now has sandwiched two solid games around a 10-yard performance last week against the Giants. Against a Chiefs defense which just gave up 107 yards to Jared Cook, Derby will have some streaming appeal next week.

Jordan Taylor hauled in 1-of-2 targets for seven yards in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chargers.

Taylor saw more work with Emmanuel Sanders sidelined, but he took a clear backseat to Bennie Fowler. Taylor is not worth owning in shallow leagues.
Oct 22 - 8:32 PM

Brandon LaFell caught 4-of-7 targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 7 loss.

LaFell actually out-targeted A.J. Green in this one, 7 to 6. LaFell is the second option on a team that struggles to pass at times, making his production very volatile. At the moment he's a touchdown-dependent fantasy start each week.
Oct 22 - 8:30 PM

Bennie Fowler hauled in all five for his targets for 45 yards in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chargers.

Filling in for Emmanuel Sanders, Fowler finished third on the team in targets and second in receiving. Unfortunately, the passing game could not do much of anything on Sunday, and the work did not result in a great fantasy day. He should find more success next week against the Chiefs if Sanders remains out, although he is unlikely to be more than a WR3/FLEX.
Oct 22 - 8:29 PM

Demaryius Thomas hauled in just 2-of-6 targets for nine yards in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chargers.

Often locked up with Casey Hayward, Thomas was almost invisible in the loss aside from what appeared to be an 81-yard catch-and-run in the second half. That play was called back on an offensive pass interference call, however, and Thomas was also the intended receiver on Trevor Siemian's interception. With Emmanuel Sanders looking likely to sit out again this week, the Broncos will need more from Thomas against the Chiefs.
Oct 22 - 8:27 PM

JuJu Smith-Schuster hauled in two of three targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 7 loss to the Bengals'.

Smith-Schuster was wide open for a 31-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He continues to be a solid role player in their offense but won't be worth starting in fantasy until the Steelers need to rely more on their passing game.
Oct 22 - 8:23 PM

Jamaal Charles rushed four times for two yards and hauled in all four of his targets for another 20 yards in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chargers.

Coach Vance Joseph promised to get Charles "more and more touches" moving forward, and he did see just three fewer than C.J. Anderson in this game. Anderson out-gained him by 39 yards, however, and still seemed like the back of choice. Until we see his workload increase -- he has still yet to touch the ball more than 10 times in a game -- Charles is just a bench stash.
Oct 22 - 8:19 PM

A.J. Green caught 3-of-6 passes for 41 yards in the Bengals' Week 7 loss to the Steelers.

Despite typically performing well against the Steelers', Green had a quiet game. QB Andy Dalton was under pressure early and often, struggling in general. One of Dalton's interceptions came on a bad pass that Green laid out for and tipped up. Green will have better games down the road.
Oct 22 - 8:18 PM

C.J. Anderson rushed 10 times for 44 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for 17 yards in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chargers.

The final stat line would suggest the Broncos should have leaned more heavily on Anderson and the runing game, but CJA struggled to produce for most of the day against what has been a porous run defense. He did rack up a few big runs in the second half, but by then it was too late. With the offense struggling, Anderson will be just an RB2 next week in Kansas City.
Oct 22 - 8:14 PM

Antonio Brown caught 4-of-10 targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Bengals.

Brown was targeted on ten of Ben's 24 total pass attempts, but only catching four dampened his fantasy output. He continues to be one of the only reliable options in the Steelers' passing game, racking up targets every week. Brown will be a top-3 receiver play against the Lions next week.
Oct 22 - 8:13 PM

Antonio Gates hauled in his only target for four yards in the Chargers' Week 7 win over the Broncos.

Gates now has just one catch in back-to-back games, and he has still yet to record more than 30 yards in a game this season. Even with the Patriots up next, he is not a fantasy option.
Oct 22 - 8:12 PM

Hunter Henry hauled in 4-of-5 targets for 73 yards in the Chargers' Week 7 win over the Broncos.

Henry started out hot, going for 34 yards on the Chargers’ first play of the game and drawing a DPI in the end zone two snaps later. He picked up another long gain in the second quarter, and he ended up leading the team in receiving on a day Philip Rivers threw just 26 passes. Clearly ahead of Antonio Gates on the depth chart at this point, Henry will be a high-end TE1 next week against the Patriots.
Oct 22 - 8:11 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 14-of-24 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Bengals.

While he didn't complete a high percentage of his passes, Roethlisberger showed up when needed to and made some big throws early in the game. Ben's first touchdown pass showed his chemistry with Antonio Brown, throwing before he was even looking for the ball. With the Steelers continuing to lean on an efficient running game in Le'Veon Bell, Roethlisberger doesn't have the same upside he used to.
Oct 22 - 8:07 PM

Mike Williams failed to catch either of his two targets in the Chargers' Week 7 win over the Broncos.

One of the missed connections was a drop, and Philip Rivers could not find the rookie on third down in the second half. Williams now has three targets in two games. He is just a bench stash right now.
