46 mins agoChicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen has been bottled up in most of the team's first five games heading into Week 7. Cohen has 20 receptions this season but only 37 rushing yards and is averaging only 6.4 yards per catch. The speedster brings explosiveness but has struggled, along with the entire Chicago offense, to this point in the season. Things will not get easier in Week 7 against a Saints Defense that is allowing the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing backs. The Saints also are allowing only an average of 30.1 receiving yards to running backs per game. The Bears will certainly be focused on short passes and the running game as keys to victory, but Cohen's fantasy production will be boom-or-bust.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Chicago Bears

52 mins agoChicago Bears running back David Montgomery will have a tough matchup in Week 7 against the Saints. The rookie is coming off a bye week and has yet to be unleashed this season. He will go up against a Saints Defense that is allowing the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. The Saints have not allowed more than 83 rushing yards to a single runner and only three rushing touchdowns all season. Montgomery has not surpassed more than 67 rushing yards all season and will struggle to post RB2 numbers in Week 7.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Chicago Bears

59 mins agoKansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring) and defensive tackle Chris Jones (groin) have both been ruled out for Thursday night against the Broncos. Watkins will miss his second straight game, although he was limited in practice on a short week, making it likely he'll return after an extended break before Week 8. Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson will be the team's top three wideouts. Hill is a surefire WR1, while Hardman and Robinson are boom/bust flex candidates in this divisional tilt on the road. Jones' absence in the trenches for KC's shaky defense is good news for Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Chiefs.com

1 hour agoBaltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown (ankle) remains out of practice on Wednesday. Brown missed practice all of last week and sat out of Week 6. He's shaping up to be a question mark again in Week 7 against the Seahawks. With Brown out in Week 6, Willie Snead, rookie Miles Boykin and Seth Roberts didn't take advantage for fantasy purposes. Tight end Mark Andrews carried the load through the air and quarterback Lamar Jackson went nuts on the ground. Jackson's upside will be limited if Brown sits for a second straight week, but his ability to put up points with his legs would keep him in the QB1 picture.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Athletic - Jeff Zrebiec

2 hours agoArizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk (ankle) continues to rehab his ankle, and head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Kirk must be 100 percent to play. Kirk has missed the last two games and doesn't really seem likely to suit up in Week 7 against the Giants. He remains stashing in most leagues in an offense that is starting to click with rookie quarterback Kyler Murray at the helm. If Kirk misses another game, Larry Fitzgerald, Damiere Byrd and rookie Keesean Johnson should continue to see expanded roles with Trent Sherfield also battling for a role. However, Fitz is really the only pass-catcher you can trust as a staple for fantasy lineups.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: AZCardinals.com - Darren Urban

2 hours agoChicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said he's "cautiously optimistic" that quarterback Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) will start in Week 7 against the Saints. However, there will be a "balancing act" in practice this week and Chase Daniel will also get some first-team work. Trubisky said he feels close to 100 percent and is practicing in full, so he should return to the starting lineup this Sunday, barring a practice setback. Trubisky and the Bears offense has been wildly mediocre this year, and the Saints Defense has been stingy against opposing quarterbacks in recent weeks. Trubisky will merely be a midrange QB2 if he plays.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Chicago Tribune - Rich Campbell

2 hours agoNew York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol and was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday. Shepard missed last Thursday's game and will likely be questionable for Week 7 against the Cardinals. He'll have to gain clearance from the protocol later this week in order to have a shot at suiting up, making him a risky fantasy option despite the excellent matchup. Golden Tate and Darius Slayton would be the team's top two receivers if Shepard remains out, although the Cardinals will be getting cornerback Patrick Peterson back from suspension this week. Tight end Evan Engram (knee) is also on track to return after missing last week's game.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: New York Post - Paul Schwartz

2 hours agoNew York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) and tight end Evan Engram (knee) were both full participants in practice on Wednesday. Barkley and Engram are both on track to return for a mouthwatering Week 7 matchup against the Cardinals. Barkley's owners have to be ecstatic that he will wind up missing just two games after suffering a mild high right ankle sprain. Barkley and Engram will be high-end fantasy options at their respective positions this weekend. The Cardinals allow the most fantasy points per game to the tight end position. The return of both players should also boost rookie quarterback Daniel Jones' appeal as a QB streamer.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Bergen Record - Art Stapleton

2 hours agoPhiladelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside has not seen a pass thrown his way since Week 3. The hyped rookie saw four targets in Week 2 and three in Week 3, but hasn't seen any since then. He's been mostly working on special teams even without DeSean Jackson (abdomen) available on offense. The Eagles have been rolling with Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, and Mack Hollins in three-wide sets, and that's not likely to change any time soon. Arcega-Whiteside is a dynasty hold for sure, but seems unlikely to develop much redraft value this season.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

3 hours agoPhiladelphia Eagles wide receiver Mack Hollins is not a fantasy option in Week 7. The Eagles will take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football, and even if DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is forced to miss another game, Hollins will only play a bit role. Hollins saw seven targets in Week 3, but has seen just five total targets since then. He's playing plenty of snaps in three-wide sets, but just isn't seeing much of the ball going his way. He's droppable in most formats.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

3 hours agoPhiladelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor is not a great starting option for Week 7. The Eagles hit the road to take on the Dallas Cowboys and their strong pass defense on Sunday Night Football. Agholor managed to catch four of his seven targets in Week 6, but caught only one pass in Weeks 4 and 5. He simply does not possess NFL-level hands and will always battle with drops and fumbles. The Eagles passing game will likely run through Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz, leaving Agholor far behind.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

3 hours agoPhiladelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery should have another solid performance in Week 7 despite a tough matchup. DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is questionable at best for Sunday and would likely be limited even if he were able to play, making Jeffery once again the top target in the passing game. The Cowboys defend well against the pass, but the Eagles will have to move the ball and Jeffery will likely be the one to do it. He's been solid this season although he hasn't shown a ton of upside. He's settled in as an every-week WR2.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

3 hours agoDallas Cowboys wide receiver Tavon Austin could have a legitimate role on offense in Week 7. The Cowboys will host the Philadelphia Eagles and their porous, generous pass defense. With Amari Cooper (quad) and Randall Cobb (back) not sure things for Sunday night, Austin should see more snaps than usual. He somehow led the Cowboys in receiving last week, catching five passes for 64 yards. He's not a huge-upside play, but could end up as a decent bye week filler if Cooper and Cobb are both out.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

3 hours agoDallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson could be elevated to a starting role on Sunday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles. With wide receivers Amari Cooper (quad) and Randall Cobb (back) not sure things for Sunday's matchup, the Cowboys could be forced to roll with Michael Gallup, Devin Smith, and Wilson in three-wide sets. Wilson appeared out of nowhere onto the Cowboys box score in Week 6, catching five passes for 48 yards. He'll get an easy Eagles secondary to contend with, so Wilson could be a near zero-cost moderate upside value in DFS leagues this week.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

3 hours agoDallas Cowboys wide receiver Devin Smith could be back in the starting lineup for a key Week 7 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. With Amari Cooper (quad) and Randall Cobb (back) both questionable at best for Sunday Night Football, Smith could play the biggest role he's played all season against an Eagles pass defense that barely exists. Smith, as usual, will be a boom-or-bust play in fantasy, but could be a solid DFS value if Cooper and Cobb are both out.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com
