1. TB - ILB Kwon Alexander may have torn ACL

Source: NFL Network - Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Kwon Alexander (knee) may have suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the team's Week 7 game, according to sources. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The Bucs also lost backup Jack Cichy in this one. They'll be tested by the Bengals next week with a lot of key players missing at every level of the defense.

2. CHI - Big day for TE Trey Burton in loss

Source: 1 No Source

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton posted game bests with nine catches and 126 yards in the Week 7 game against the New England Patriots while scoring a touchdown with 11 targets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Burton had his career best game as Mitchell Trubisky seemed to trust him and be in tune with him more than any other targets. We will see if it can persist against the Jets next week and Trubisky did throw the ball 50 times, but we will have to treat Burton as a must start if that relationship doesn't cool off next week.

3. CHI - QB Mitchell Trubisky accounts for three TDs

Source: 1 No Source

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 26-of-50 passes for 333 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions with six runs for a game-high 81 yards and a score in Week 7 against the New England Patriots.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Trubisky was too much for the slow Patriots defense as a scrambler and he had to pass a ton in the second half to make up a deficit that the Bears special teams issues helped create. He'll remain a top-end streamer until he lets us down. Next week brings the Jets.

Back to Top


4. NE - WR Chris Hogan racks up six catches

Source: 1 No Source

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan finished with six receptions for 63 yards in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears on seven targets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Hogan had a larger role with Rob Gronkowski out, but wasn't a real fantasy difference maker. He might be worth bye/injury WR3/Flex looks against his old Bills team next week in deeper leagues, but he isn't an essential hold right now.

Back to Top


5. NE - WR Josh Gordon hits century mark

Source: 1 No Source

New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon posted four receptions for a team-high 100 yards on seven targets in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Gordon had a 55-yard catch and run to key his day, he is proving to be worth a weekly WR3/flex start in his new expanded role, although he might draw Tre'Davious White at Buffalo next week.

Back to Top


6. NE - RB James White scores pair of TDs

Source: 1 No Source

New England Patriots RB James White rushed 11 times for a team-high 40 yards in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears and he added eight receptions for 57 yards and two scores on a team-high 10 targets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

White got a larger rushing workload with Sony Michel out, and he remained a force in the red zone passing game. He's a PPR RB1 and strong RB2 in non-PPR leagues heading to Buffalo next week.

Back to Top


7. JAX - WR Donte Moncrief finishes with 76 yards

Source: NFL.com

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief caught seven passes for 76 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Moncrief was the leading Jaguars receiver but it's going to be tough to trust any Jacksonville receiver with the current state of their passing game.

Back to Top


8. NE - QB Tom Brady tosses three touchdowns

Source: 1 No Source

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 25-of-36 passes for 277 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Brady wasn't limited in the box score even though he was without Rob Gronkowski. He faces a Buffalo defense next week that we saw as a tough matchup coming into this week, but maybe not coming out of this week.

Back to Top


9. JAX - RB T.J. Yeldon reaches end zone

Source: NFL.com

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon caught five passes for 40 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 7. He also rushed for 28 yards on 12 carries during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Yeldon made a terrific sprawling play on his touchdown catch but his window of value is closing with Carlos Hyde likely to suit up next week. He's not an essential hold despite his recent contributions.

Back to Top


10. NYJ - WR Jermaine Kearse invisible in loss

Source: 1 No Source

New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse had no catches on two targets in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Kearse was one of the busts of Week 7 doing nothing the week after a 9-94 line in relief of Quincy Enunwa. He'll be put back on the waiver wire.

Back to Top


11. NYJ - TE Chris Herndon gets into the end zone

Source: 1 No Source

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon finished with four receptions for 42 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Herndon almost had a second touchdown and he was the most reliable target for Sam Darnold. He's streamable against the Bears next week and should be added in deep leagues.

Back to Top


12. HOU - Six catches for WR Will Fuller

Source: NFL.com

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller caught six passes for 68 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Unlike Keke Coutee, Fuller seems to be over his hamstring issue. His weekly ceiling will keep him in lineups unless Deshaun Watson goes down. He'll face some vulnerable Bears corners with a weakened pass rush next week.

Back to Top


13. HOU - RB Lamar Miller rushes for 100 yards

Source: NFL.com

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed for 100 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Miller got on track for the first time in a while when the Jaguars lost their nerve in this one. The Texans should want to foster a stronger running game to take pressure of Deshaun Watson, but Miller is still only bye/injury/emergency material unless this positive trend continues.

Back to Top


14. NYJ - RB Isaiah Crowell bottled up in loss

Source: 1 No Source

New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell rushed 11 times for 29 yards in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added one grab for 21 yards on three targets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Crowell was predictably contained by the Vikings, but he could be starting next week against the Bears with Bilal Powell's afternoon cut short by a neck injury.

Back to Top


15. HOU - QB Deshaun Watson held to 139 yards

Source: NFL.com

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson went 12-for-24 for 139 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Watson didn't pass much but he also didn't take too much punishment in the easy win. He'll have a smoother time next week against Miami and might be startable again after a two-week downturn.

Back to Top


16. NYJ - QB Sam Darnold makes mistakes in loss

Source: NFL

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed just 17-of-42 passes for 206 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings and he also rushed for a score.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Darnold looked like a rookie and didn't support much fantasy value for his offense against a tough Vikings defense. Next week he'll go on the road and face a Bears defense that is starting to show cracks, but it will be tough to trust him or any of his targets.

Back to Top


17. IND - WR T.Y. Hilton catches two TDs

Source: NFL.com

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton caught four passes for 25 yards and two touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Hilton wasn't a vertical threat and didn't have an easy time of it against the Bills defense, but he was effective on goal to go plays and that was enough for a solid day. Unless his hamstring doesn't respond well in practice, he'll be a strong WR2 play against the Raiders next week.

Back to Top


18. IND - TE Eric Ebron held to 31 yards

Source: NFL.com

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron caught three passes for 31 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Ebron was a victim of low passing volume and Erik Swoope catching a touchdown, but Swoope is hurt and Ebron still led the Colts in targets. He'll be a strong TE1 play against the Raiders next week.

Back to Top


19. MIN - TE Kyle Rudolph quiet in Week 7 win

Source: 1 No Source

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph hauled in just one reception for 16 yards on four targets in Week 7 against the New York Jets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Rudolph didn't do much despite high volume. We can't get too picky at tight end, but his arrow is pointing down heading into a matchup with the Saints.

Back to Top


20. MIN - WR Stefon Diggs makes eight grabs

Source: 1 No Source

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs posted eight receptions for 33 yards on 14 targets in Week 7 against the New York Jets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Diggs is getting volume, but he's not making much happen after the catch. He might draw Marshon Lattimore next week, but eventually defenses are going to give Adam Thielen more attention and Diggs will have some big games.

Back to Top


21. MIN - WR Adam Thielen goes over 100 yards again

Source: ESPN Stats and Information

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen finished with nine receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets in Week 7 against the New York Jets. He has seven straight 100-yard games, one shy of matching the NFL record set by former Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson in 2012.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Thielen can't be stopped. He is the most valuable fantasy receiver and probably is untouchable in your league right now.

Back to Top


22. MIN - RB Latavius Murray pays dividends

Source: 1 No Source

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 15 times for 69 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 7 against the New York Jets and he added two grabs for 14 yards on his two targets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Murray was timely with his big runs, including one long run for a score, and probably deserves to be more than a mere backup when Dalvin Cook is back. He'll be a low ceiling RB2 play against the Saints if Cook can't go next week.

Back to Top


23. MIN - QB Kirk Cousins tosses two TDs in road win

Source: 1 No Source

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 25-of-40 passes for 241 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 7 road win against the New York Jets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Cousins was a solid fantasy play despite the wind and holding the lead for most of the game. He'll be a high ceiling play against the Saints playing indoors at home next week.

Back to Top


24. IND - RB Marlon Mack accounts for two TDs

Source: NFL.com

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed for 126 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7. He also caught two passes for 33 yards and one touchdown during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Mack was one of the MVPs of Week 7 and he has the look of a league winner if this is how he is going to perform against a previously stout defense like Buffalo. Mack should be in all lineups next week against the Raiders and might be a buy high candidate.

Back to Top


25. PHI - TE Dallas Goedert finds end zone

Source: 1 No Source

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert posted four grabs for 43 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers on five targets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Goedert's role has been inconsistent, but he clearly has talent as a receiver and should remain in consideration any time we have to grab a tight end off of the waiver wire.

Back to Top


26. IND - Four touchdowns for QB Andrew Luck

Source: NFL.com

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck went 17-for-23 for 156 yards and four touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Luck defied a tough matchup and low volume to put up a great day in a romp over the Bills. With TY Hilton back, Luck should be a strong play against the reeling Raiders next week.

Back to Top


27. PHI - TE Zach Ertz rolls for 138 yards

Source: 1 No Source

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz racked up nine receptions for 138 yards on 11 targets in the Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Ertz is on his way to crushing his career highs in catches and yardage, and he might end up being the most valuable tight end in PPR leagues.

Back to Top


28. PHI - QB Carson Wentz tosses 310 yards, two TDs

Source: 1 No Source

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz completed 30-of-37 passes for 310 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers and he also lost a fumble.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Wentz wasn't the reason the Eagles lost on a windy day. He is in tune with Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery and the Week 8 opponent Jacksonville suddenly isn't a scary defense any longer. Leave Wentz in your lineup unless you have an obviously better option.

Back to Top


29. BUF - WR Kelvin Benjamin posts 71 yards

Source: NFL.com

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin caught four passes for 71 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Benjamin has been a viable play every time he has been on the field with Derek Anderson, so he'll have some bye/injury/emergency play value against the Patriots next week unless Nathan Peterman is installed.

Back to Top


30. CAR - RB Christian McCaffrey totals 80 yards

Source: 1 No Source

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed seven times for just 29 yards in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles and he added six receptions for 51 yards.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

McCaffrey's day was salvaged by catches during the successful comeback bid, but the running game never got established in a tough matchup down early and McCaffrey didn't have any big plays. He's a low ceiling RB1 in PPR and not essential play in nonPPR at this point.

Back to Top


31. CAR - QB Cam Newton tosses two TDs in comeback

Source: 1 No Source

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 25-of-39 passes for 269 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a Week 7 comeback win against the Philadelphia Eagles. Both TD strikes came in the fourth quarter, and he led the team in rushing again with 49 yards.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Newton started slow on a windy day but carried his team to victory. He is matchup and weather proof heading into another tough matchup against the Ravens.

Back to Top


32. BUF - QB Derek Anderson struggles in Week 7

Source: NFL.com

Buffalo Bills QB Derek Anderson went 20-for-31 for 175 yards and three interceptions against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Keep starting the defense against the Bills no matter who is at quarterback for Buffalo.

33. NE - RB Sony Michel injured

Source: Patriots.com

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) left the game because of his knee injury.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Michel's injury looked serious. Stay tuned. The Patriots should be in the market for a running back, but in the meantime Kenjon Barner will have some waiver wire value.

Back to Top


34. NYJ - RB Bilal Powell injures neck

Source: NewYorkJets.com

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) suffered a neck injury during the Week 7 game and will not return.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Isaiah Crowell has another tough matchup against the Bears next week, but neck injuries can be delicate so he might start for more than just one fill-in week. Elijah McGuire is getting healthy and should take over a role in this offense if Powell is out for a while.

Back to Top


35. JAX - QB Blake Bortles benched

Source: The Associated Press - Mark Long

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was benched during the team's Week 7 game and has been replaced by QB Cody Kessler.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Will the Jaguars turn back to Bortles against the Eagles next week? Does it matter for the Jaguars passing game when it comes to fantasy football? Can the defense get their swagger back? The Jaguars season is in free fall.

Back to Top


36. BUF - RB LeSean McCoy ruled out

Source: BuffaloBills.com

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (head) will not return to the Week 7 game because of his head injury.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Chris Ivory was good in McCoy's stead even with a terrible game script. There should be another terrible game script for the Bills running game against the Patriots next week, so Ivory won't be a top waiver wire priority.

37. LAC - Five catches for WR Keenan Allen

Source: NFL.com

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught five passes for 72 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Allen was frustrated on the sidelines and hasn't had any huge games in a balanced offense, even without Melvin Gordon. He is still a high floor weekly play, but the big numbers might not come this year.

Back to Top


38. LAC - WR Tyrell Williams posts 118 yards

Source: NFL.com

Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams caught four passes for 118 yards and one touchdown against the Tennessee Titans in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Williams is only going to get 4-5 targets a week, but he's showing that he can put up strong numbers on that small share. He'll at least be good bench depth going into the bye.

Back to Top


39. LAC - RB Austin Ekeler receives 17 total touches

Source: NFL.com

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed for 42 yards on 12 carries against the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. He also caught five passes for 26 yards during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Ekeler was quiet despite being the lead back when Melvin Gordon was scratched because the Chargers didn't put many long drives together and instead scored via the long pass.

Back to Top


40. LAC - QB Philip Rivers surpasses 300-yard mark

Source: NFL.com

Los Angeles Chargers WR Philip Rivers went 19-for-26 for 306 yards and two touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans in Week 7.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Rivers was almost too efficient for fantasy purposes as the Chargers didn't possess the ball for long because of long touchdowns. He's as steady as any fantasy quarterback but won't give you a great chance of a top 3 quarterback score heading into his bye.

Back to Top


41. TEN - RB Derrick Henry reaches end zone

Source: NFL.com

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed for 33 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 7. He also caught two passes for 32 yards during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Henry had an easy touchdown and wasn't covered well on his receptions. The offensive success gave him his best result of the season heading into the bye, and finally gave us a reason to carry him through that bye.

Back to Top


42. TEN - RB Dion Lewis involved in run, pass game

Source: NFL.com

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis rushed for 91 yards on 13 carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 7. He also caught six passes for 64 yards during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Lewis was back in top form as a receiver and runner and for the second time this year looked like a foundational piece for this offense. His usage and the offense's overall effectiveness are unpredictable, but he's healthy and looking good going into his bye. Lewis might help PPR teams get to the playoffs yet.
