10/16:Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen (elbow) received a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews and while he will not need surgery, the expectation is that Allen will miss at least two or three games and will be week-to-week after that, according to a source. The rookie is dealing with damage to the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Although it'll be a hit to the team's already inconsistent offense, the good news is that Allen won't need Tommy John surgery, which would keep him out for around a year. Either Nathan Peterman or Derek Anderson will start in Week 7 against the Colts. Anderson is probably the better bet at this point, but all Bills offensive weapons have to be downgraded in fantasy.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL Network - Tom Pelissero

10/16:The Los Angeles Rams cut kicker Cairo Santos on Tuesday. He went 2-for-3 in the Week 6 win over the Broncos, but Greg Zuerlein (groin) is expected to return from his injury in Week 7 to face the 49ers. If Zuerlein is on your league's waiver wire, pick him up. He'll be one of the top fantasy kickers moving forward in the high-scoring Rams offense.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Lindsey Thiry

10/16:Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said he is standing by quarterback Derek Carr despite his struggles this year. "He is the strength of this football team. He is on my watch. I said it when I got here, if he doesn't play well, I've failed," Gruden said. Carr has improved his completion percentage (71.7 percent), but he's often gun-shy about taking deep shots and has seven touchdowns and eight interceptions through six games going into the Week 7 bye. It doesn't help that his receivers are mediocre, at best. Carr will remain a low-end QB2 when he returns to action in Week 8 against the Colts.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Athletic - Vic Tafur

10/16:Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman (groin) will undergo surgery on his groin in Philadelphia on Thursday, according to a source. Freeman was placed on Injured Reserve on Tuesday and will be out for at least the next eight weeks. It means he's unlikely to contribute much to close out the year if he even returns. He'll go down as a big early-round bust for fantasy owners. Tevin Coleman and rookie Ito Smith will continue to split the backfield with Freeman sidelined. Coleman will remain an RB2, while Smith will be more of a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Vaughn McClure

10/16:Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said he is concerned that running back Marshawn Lynch's (groin) injury could be a long-term injury. Lynch will be evaluated during the team's Week 7 bye. Beast Mode started off the season with a touchdown in three straight games, but he's gone scoreless in three games since then and has 86 yards on 24 carries in the last two games with the Raiders frequently playing from behind. He's a volume-based RB2 that needs favorable game script when healthy, but it appears the 32-year-old back could already be breaking down. If his owners don't already have Doug Martin or Jalen Richard handcuffed, take the bye week as an opportunity to pick one or both of them up. Richard has been the more effective fantasy back in PPR leagues with the Raiders often needing to pass to play catch-up.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Athletic - Vic Tafur

10/16:Seattle Seahawks tight end Ed Dickson (knee) and linebacker K.J. Wright (knee) could make their season debuts following the Week 7 bye against the Lions on Oct. 28. Head coach Pete Carroll said both players will practice next week, but he sounded more confident about Dickson, who spent the first six weeks on the Non-Football Injury list. Wright had a setback a few weeks after his arthroscopic knee surgery but "has had a couple really good days." Tight end Nick Vannett (back) will get some "special work" in this week and could also return in Week 8. Seattle's defense will be much stronger in the middle whenever Wright returns. Dickson should serve as the main pass-catching tight end whenever he returns, but he'll merely be a TE2 for fantasy owners.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Brady Henderson

10/16:New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard has 31 catches on the season for 341 yards and two touchdowns. He will have a sparkling matchup against a Falcons defense that already has allowed 13 different receivers to score more than 10 fantasy points against them through six games. Atlanta is surrendering the fifth most fantasy points to opposing pass-catchers and have allowed 11 receiving touchdowns. There should be plenty of opportunities for the struggling Giants to score points and Shepard should be in the mix. Shepard has solid WR3 appeal in fantasy for this Monday night matchup.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New York Giants

10/16:New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will have a dynamite matchup against a porous Falcons secondary this Monday night in Week 7. Beckham Jr. leads the team with 45 receptions for 506 yards and one touchdown but has been bottled up most of the season. He will have a chance to breakout in Week 7 against a Falcons defense is allowing the fifth most fantasy points to opposing receivers this season. Atlanta has allowed an astounding 13 receivers to score more than 10 fantasy points against them through only six games this season. They have already allowed 11 touchdowns to receivers and Beckham Jr. could be in line for a huge performance. Beckham Jr. will be a top fantasy option among receivers in fantasy for Week 7.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New York Giants

10/16:New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley will have a fantastic matchup in Week 7 against a Falcons defense that is allowing the third most fantasy points to running backs this season. Barkley has lived up to his preseason hype through the first six games of his career, racking up 373 receiving yards, 438 rushing yards and six total touchdowns. He has registered at least 100 yards from scrimmage in each of the first six games of his career and is second on the team with 40 receptions. The Falcons defense has allowed four different running backs to post more than 100 total yards and six different runners have scored more than 18 fantasy points against them. Barkley will be a top option in fantasy for Monday night's matchup against Atlanta in Week 7.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New York Giants

10/16:The San Francisco 49ers signed free-agent quarterback Tom Savage on Tuesday, according to a league source. Savage will now serve as a backup to C.J. Beathard alongside Nick Mullens with Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) out for the season. Savage completed just 56.1 percent of his passes with six interceptions and five touchdowns while fumbling eight times in eight games for the Texans in 2017 while filling in for the injured Deshaun Watson. If Savage is forced into action with the Niners this year, they'll be in dire straights on offense.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Jordan Schultz
10/16:New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has struggled through his first six games of the season but will have a favorable matchup in Week 7 against a vulnerable Falcons defense. Manning lacks mobility and has hesitated to push the ball down the field but will face a Falcons defense that is allowing the fourth most fantasy points to quarterbacks. Atlanta has allowed five different quarterbacks to throw for three touchdowns or more against them and four of those have thrown for more than 335 yards. The Giants have explosive weapons on offense but it simply has not equated to points and victories this season. Manning has not been a fantasy option in most formats this season but should have top-15 appeal among quarterbacks for Monday Night Football.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New Orleans Saints

10/16:San Francisco 49ers running back Kyle Juszczyk was held to three catches for 30 yards in Week 6. He also lost a fumble. Juszczyk created some noise after notching 87 scrimmage yards in Week 5 but an active Matt Breida (ankle, shoulder) and relentless ground attack reduced him to his standard blocking role. Game script will occasionally give Juszczyk an opportunity to factor into the Niners passing game but he’s nothing more than a deep PPR handcuff for the banged up Breida.--Andrew Le - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

10/16:San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Pierre Garcon secured four of six targets for 37 yards in Week 6’s loss to the Green Bay Packers. Garcon shook linebacker Clay Matthews on a checkdown for a nifty 18-yard gain but was otherwise quiet on the evening. Despite 39 targets through six weeks, Garcon is rarely quarterback C.J. Beathard’s first read and has been held under 50 yards in four contests. Lacking meaningful fantasy upside, Garcon is likely droppable in favor of more exciting receiving or flex options.--Andrew Le - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

10/16:New Orleans Saints wide receiver Cameron Meredith is coming off his most impressive game of the season in Week 5 with five receptions for 71 yards. For the first time, Meredith looked smooth in the Saints offensive system and his arrow is pointing up heading into a tough matchup against the Ravens. Baltimore currently has allowed the 13th fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers and have not allowed a receiver to register more than 91 yards this season. Meredith should continue to progress over the next few weeks but will be a touchdown-dependent option in fantasy for Week 7.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New Orleans Saints

10/16:New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas will go up against a Ravens defense in Week 7 that has not allowed a 100-yard receiver yet this season. Thomas exploded out of the gate this season with 38 receptions in his first three games but has only eight catches over his last two. The Saints offense can struggle playing outdoors and on the road and Thomas recently racked up only 47 yards against the Giants in New York. Thomas will be the top option in the passing game for the Saints but they could look to lean on the running game in what should be a tight scoring game. Thomas is a must-start but could fail to crack the top-15 among wide receivers in fantasy for Week 7.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New Orleans Saints
