Jalen Richard rushed nine times for 31 yards in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chiefs, adding four receptions for 45 additional yards.

Marshawn Lynch was ejected for shoving a referee in the second quarter, but neither Richard nor DeAndre Washington could take control of the Raiders' backfield. Richard out-touched D-Wash just 13-12, though he did out-gain him 76-40. Washington got a goal-line carry and score. If Lynch is suspended for Week 8, it will be hard to trust either Richard or Washington as more than a volatile FLEX option.

DeAndre Washington rushed nine times for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

He added three catches for seven yards. Marshawn Lynch got ejected in the second quarter, but Washington still couldn't manage more than an even timeshare with Jalen Richard. D-Wash got the ball 12 times, Richard 13. Washington's score was a churning four-yarder that would have made Beast Mode proud. Washington refused to go down. If Lynch is suspended for Week 8 — he pushed a ref — Washington and Richard should continue to rotate, rendering both fantasy dart throws.

Demarcus Robinson caught 5-of-8 targets for 69 yards in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

A 2016 fourth-rounder, tonight was the most involved Robinson has ever been on offense. Pressed into duty by injuries in the Chiefs' receiver corps, Robinson made some nice chain-moving grabs. Robinson was a compiler in college, but that sort of role isn't available behind Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce in the Chiefs' big-play offense.

Albert Wilson scored a 63-yard touchdown in Kansas City's Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

Wilson's score was one of only two targets on the evening. It was as fluky of a touchdown as you will ever see, as Raiders DB Keith McGill should have had an interception. Instead, the ball clanged off his hands right into Wilson's mitts, who promptly housed it for the score. With the Chiefs running low on healthy wideouts, Wilson could have some WR5 appeal in the season's second half.
Oct 20 - 12:39 AM

Jared Cook caught 6-of-7 targets for 107 yards in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

The 100-yard night was Cook's first as a Raider, and just the fifth of his nine-year career. Cook was making huge plays all evening, including a late defensive holding penalty he drew in the red zone with no time remaining. Seconds prior, Cook appeared to have a game-winning, 29-yard score, but was ruled down at the half-yard line. (The Raiders were then backed up by a Michael Crabtree penalty.) Producing as a reliable TE2, Cook gets the Bills for Week 8.

Michael Crabtree caught 3-of-7 targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

Crabtree caught the game-winning touchdown, but not before committing offensive pass interference on another would-be game winner. It was that kind of night in Oakland, as the Raiders and Chiefs treated fans to a thrilling, sometimes incomprehensible, game. Crabtree is now up to six 2017 touchdowns, and has scored in 4-of-6 appearances. He gets the Bills for Week 8.
Oct 20 - 12:25 AM

Travis Kelce caught 4-of-5 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

The touchdown was Kelce's third of the season. It was a quiet night by Kelce's 2017 standards, but he's now caught at least four passes in 6-of-7 games. He's averaging 60 yards, putting him on pace for 967. That should increase. Kelce and the Chiefs host the Broncos in Week 8.
Oct 20 - 12:24 AM

Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 87 yards in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Raiders, adding four receptions for 30 additional yards.

Hunt got the ball five times on the Chiefs' opening drive, including the first four plays, but his usage was frustratingly scattershot thereafter. Hunt has now eclipsed 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first seven NFL games, but the Chiefs still go bafflingly-long stretches without getting him the ball. Either way, the numbers have been there every week, and Hunt has left no doubt he's an elite player both in real life and fantasy. Matchups do not matter for the third-round rookie.
Oct 20 - 12:23 AM

Tyreek Hill caught 6-of-8 targets for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

Hill added two rushes for seven yards. The Chiefs entered Week 7 manufacturing frustratingly few touches for their mega-play threat, but finally got proactive this evening, getting the ball in Hill's hands a number of different ways. The biggest play of the night was Hill's 64-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Dispatched downfield in ordinary fashion, Hill took ownership of David Amerson's soul, running right by the 6-foot-1, 205-pound corner. The 100-yard game was Hill's first since Week 1, though he's now averaging a healthy 74 yards. It's going to remain a wild ride, and this peak could be followed by a valley in Week 8 against the Broncos' elite secondary.

Derek Carr completed 29-of-52 passes for 417 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Raiders' 31-30, Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

The Raiders franchise has played a lot of insane games over the decades, but this one will rank right up there with them. In a contest beset by penalties — many questionable — big plays and bigger miscues, Carr never stopped throwing, piling up the second most yards of his career. Carr struggled much of the evening, airmailing some easy throws and failing to pick on the Chiefs corners in 1-on-1 coverage. CBS analyst Tony Romo was beside himself more than once. But Carr locked onto Amari Cooper, who made a number of deep grabs, and indeed started attacking the perimeter late. His pass catchers responded with huge catches. Carr now has 10 days to rest his recently-broken back. Oakland ventures to Buffalo for Week 8.
Oct 20 - 12:06 AM

Alex Smith completed 25-of-36 passes for 342 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Chiefs' 31-30, Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

The 342 yards were the fourth most of Smith's career, while he's now the owner of a 15:0 TD:INT ratio through the season's first seven games. Victimized by awful calls by the referees and big plays by the Raiders, the Chiefs did everything but win. "New Alex" continued to aggressively target his weapons downfield, resulting in a 64-yard Tyreek Hill touchdown and fluky 63-yard Albert Wilson score on a ball that should have been picked. Smith's hot play will be put to the test in Week 8, where the Chiefs host the Broncos' imposing defense for Monday Night Football.
Oct 20 - 12:05 AM

Amari Cooper caught 11-of-19 targets for 210 yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

Targeted on the first snap of the game, it was clear early on we were finally seeing a different Cooper. The third-year pro entered the evening the owner of an 18/146/1 line, good for 125th in the league in yardage. He exited it doubling his totals across the board, and with a new career high in yards. It was a fittingly bonkers performance, as Cooper's first touchdown, a 38-yarder on a flea flicker, featured a fairly blatant pushoff. It was not called by the referees. Cooper's second score was a 45-yarder where he ripped a hole in soft zone coverage. Along the way, Cooper committed a brutal drop and drew a 47-yard defensive pass interference penalty. Truly, everything happened. Cooper will look to get a hot streak going in next week's road trip to Buffalo.

Marshawn Lynch was ejected from the Raiders' Week 7 game against the Chiefs after shoving a referee.

For some reason, the Raiders dialed up a draw for Derek Carr on a second quarter 3rd-and-10. It failed spectacularly, with Carr taking numerous hits. The Raiders took exception and Lynch came racing in from the sideline. He then shoved a referee during the ensuing scrum. The crew had no choice but to eject him. Lynch carried the ball just twice for nine yards before being tossed, and was ceding lots of snaps and touches to Jalen Richard. It's possible he earns a suspension for Week 8 against Buffalo.

A source tells the Miami Herald DeVante Parker (ankle) is feeling "much better" despite missing Wednesday and Thursday's practices.

Speaking earlier Thursday, OC Clyde Christensen said the team was "holding out hope" Parker would return. Apparently it wasn't just coachspeak. The tea leaves still suggest Parker will be sitting against the Jets. If he does play, his health will make him a fantasy wild card.
Oct 19 - 7:34 PM

Aaron Rodgers underwent surgery on his broken right collarbone Thursday.

Coach Mike McCarthy announced on Monday that Rodgers would be going under the knife. The Packers are holding off placing Rodgers on injured reserve, but it's believed his season is likely over. An absolute best-case scenario would probably have Rodgers returning for Week 16.
