  • Juwan Thompson manages six carres
    Juwan Thompson managed six carries for 30 yards in Week 7 against the 49ers.

    Advice: Thompson wasn't involved until late in the third quarter. He didn't play in red-zone or short-yardage situations over Ronnie Hillman. With Montee Ball not expected to return until at least Week 9, Thompson will remain the Broncos' No. 2 back for Thursday night's game against the Chargers. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Hyde gets five touches in Week 7
    Carlos Hyde had three carries for 15 yards in Week 7 against the Broncos.

    Advice: Hyde didn't get his first carry until the third quarter. The 49ers were forced to abandon the run, with Hyde and Frank Gore combining for just 14 touches. Hyde played limited snaps and was mostly limited to mop-up duty. The 49ers could look to get Hyde more involved in the second half of the season. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: It's the first time Thomas has been held out of the end-zone this season. His six targets were behind only Demaryius Thomas. All four of Peyton Manning's touchdowns went to receivers this week. Thomas will look to get back on track against the Chargers on Thursday night. Rotoworld.com

He dropped a touchdown in the second quarter, and was also called for a penalty that cost the 49ers another score. Boldin remains just a low-upside WR3/4.

    Stevie Johnson caught five passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: Johnson played in the majority of three-wide sets with Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. He wasn't limited by the hip injury that cost him practice time this week. Johnson's touchdown came on a four-yard strike from Colin Kaepernick in the back of the end-zone. He doesn't have a major role in the 49ers' offense, but has been productive with three touchdowns in his last four games. Johnson remains just a WR5 for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com

Crabtree doesn't have a 100-yard game this season, and will need to continue to get red-zone targets. He has a 32/322/3 line through seven weeks. Rotoworld.com

He was able to bounce back after being held to one catch last week, but has only four targets over the last two games. Welker will remain just a WR3 for Thursday night against the Chargers.

Sanders was quiet for the rest of the game with just three targets. He'll be a higher-end WR2 in Week 8 against the Chargers. Rotoworld.com

    Frank Gore was held to 20 yards on nine carries in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: Gore was held in check by the Broncos run defense and couldn't get anything going behind an offensive line that was missing three starters. The 49ers abandoned the run in the second half, with Carlos Hyde getting the majority of work over Gore late in the game. Gore is averaging just 4.1 YPC and has one touchdown in seven games. The 49ers could look to get Hyde more involved coming out of their Week 8 bye. Rotoworld.com

    Demaryius Thomas had eight catches for 171 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 7 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Thomas was on the receiving end of Peyton Manning's record-breaking touchdown. He was able to take advantage of being matched up with a less than fully healthy Tramaine Brock for most of the game. Thomas beat Perrish Cox deep down the field for his second score. After getting off to a slow start, Thomas has three straight games with at least 120 yards and a touchdown. He should be a top-three option against the Chargers in Week 8. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Hillman had two third-quarter touchdowns, including a 37-yard score up the middle the of the field. He stayed in for all red-zone situations, with his second touchdown coming from one yard out. Juwan Thompson had just six carries behind Hillman and wasn't used until late in the game. Hillman has put together two straight strong performances and could remain part of the backfield when Montee Ball returns. He'll be an RB2 in Week 8 against the Chargers. Rotoworld.com

    Tavon Austin caught three passes for six yards and rushed for 16 yards on five carries in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Seahawks.

    Advice: Austin was given five carries, second only behind Tre Mason's 18, as a traditional running back. He hits the hole hard, but is too small/fragile to make charging linebackers and linemen miss. As a receiver, we've just about given up hope on Austin. He doesn't do anything near the line of scrimmage with the ball in his hands. His jukes are rendered useless. Austin is simply a gadget player. Rotoworld.com

    Daniel Thomas rushed for 25 yards on seven carries and caught three passes for 25 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bears.

    Advice: Thomas operated as Lamar Miller's clear No. 2. He got a couple series to himself, at one point touching the ball on 5-of-7 plays on a second-quarter drive, but that was mostly it. With Knowshon Moreno (knee) done for the season, we'd expect Thomas to be Miller's backup for the duration of the season. Rotoworld.com

    Colin Kaepernick completed 24-of-39 passes for 263 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in Sunday night's Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: He added 18 yards on three carries. Kaepernick failed to lead the 49ers to a scoring drive in the second half. His lone touchdown came on a four-yard pass to Stevie Johnson in the back of the end-zone. The 49ers' offensive line struggled to pass protect all game, and Kaepernick was sacked six times. Kaepernick will be a borderline QB1 option in Week 9 when the 49ers come out of their bye. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Bowe made some extremely tough-handed grabs while flashing nice agility, but also committed a brutal third-down drop. The 84 yards were Bowe's most of the season, which should tell you all you need to know about his fantasy value. Bowe has yet to find the end zone in 2014. He's a WR4/5. Rotoworld.com

  • Ellington piles up 30 touches, totals 160 yds
    Andre Ellington rushed 24 times for 88 yards and caught six balls for 72 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 win over the Raiders.

    Advice: After struggling a bit in the first half -- 10-34 on the ground -- Ellington was late coming out of the tunnel for the third quarter, reportedly nursing a rib injury. Stepfan Taylor started the second half and ran well before Ellington reentered to drop a critical third-down pass. Ellington retook his featured role for most of the final two quarters, putting Arizona's offense on his back on a highly productive third-quarter drive. Unfortunately, he was vultured by Taylor twice inside the Oakland five-yard line, as Taylor scored a two-yard rushing TD in addition to a four-yard receiving score on a speed out. Ellington missed snaps on the Cardinals' clock-killing possession late in the fourth quarter with cramping, but did return. He'll be a borderline RB1 when the Cardinals take on the Eagles in Week 8.

    Advice: Brown has been inactive in all seven games so far this season. But the Bills lost Fred Jackson (groin) and C.J. Spiller (broken collarbone) on Sunday, leaving Brown as the next man up. A talented runner that was acquired in an offseason trade, Brown looms as the most sought-after waiver wire add this week. He's rushed 190 times for 878 yards (4.62 YPC) with six touchdowns in his NFL career. This preseason, Brown rushed 34 times for 152 yards (4.47 YPC) and caught eight passes for 68 yards.

  • 'No guarantee' Bryce Brown will play in 2014
    According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, "there's no guarantee" Bryce Brown will play at all for the Bills this season.

    Advice: Brown doesn't play special teams, so he's technically Buffalo's No. 4 running back behind Fred Jackson, C.J. Spiller, and Anthony Dixon. The Bills traded a fourth-round pick to acquire Brown this offseason. It's fair to wonder if they're regretting that decision now. Brown remains a hold in Dynasty leagues, but he's barely worth a roster spot in 14- and 16-team re-draft formats. He needs F-Jax or Spiller to suffer an injury to get active. Rotoworld.com

  • Hyde manages 14 yards on 11 carries on MNF
    Carlos Hyde rushed for 14 yards on 11 carries in the 49ers' Week 6 win over the Rams.

    Advice: Hyde saw 11 totes to Frank Gore's 16. The rookie added one catch for one yard. It was Hyde who was getting all of the goal-line and clock-killing work late in the game, much to the surprise and disgust of Gore owners. It's clear the 49ers love Hyde and are willing to use him in critical situations. He's a TD-dependent RB4. Rotoworld.com

  • Gore rushes for 38 yards in Week 6 win
    Frank Gore rushed for 38 yards on 16 carries in the 49ers' Week 6 win over the Rams.

    Advice: Gore out-carried Carlos Hyde 16-11, but it was Hyde getting the work near the goal line and in clock-killing mode late in the fourth quarter. The Rams sold out to stop the run, and limited Gore and Hyde to a combined 52 yards on 27 carries. Gore seemed aggravated, but he'll play the good soldier role after the victory. He'll be a mid-range RB2 next week in Denver. Rotoworld.com

  • Kaep totals 370 yds, 3 TDs in MNF comeback
    Colin Kaepernick completed 22-of-36 passes for 343 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the 49ers' 31-17, Week 6 win over the Rams on Monday night, adding 37 rushing yards on three carries.

    Advice: The 49ers struggled to get anything going much of the first half, but the wheels fell off the Rams defense after Kaepernick hooked up with Brandon Lloyd for an 80-yard touchdown behind Janoris Jenkins with 14 seconds left in the second quarter. It was mostly cake from there on out, as the 49ers moved the ball with ease. Kaep scrambled left in the third quarter and threw an off-balance 11-yard TD to Anquan Boldin before hooking up with Michael Crabtree later in the quarter for a 32-yard score. He should have had a fourth touchdown pass, but TEs Vance McDonald and Vernon Davis fought over a target in the end zone with no Rams around them, letting the ball fall to the turf. Kaepernick gets the Broncos on the road in Week 7. Rotoworld.com

  • Gore had to earn roster spot after Hyde pick
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 49ers informed Frank Gore in the offseason that he had to earn his roster spot in training camp after the team drafted Carlos Hyde.

    Advice: On the surface, it comes as a bit of a shock. But considering Gore is 31 and carries a $6.45 million salary, it's not that surprising. Gore is averaging two fewer carries per game this season compared to last, and we'd expect his carries total to dip deeper into the season. It's probably a good idea to sell Gore in re-draft. Hyde is the future at running back in the Bay. He's a good target for Dynasty owners with Gore set to become a free agent in the offseason. Rotoworld.com

    Vernon Davis (back) is active and will start Monday night's Week 6 game against the Rams.

    Advice: Davis got in a full slate of limited practices this week after missing Week 5 against the Chiefs. The Rams handle tight ends well, but Davis has given them trouble in the past. He's a solid TE1. Inactive for the Niners are CB Tramaine Brock, RT Anthony Davis, WR Quinton Patton, DL Tank Carradine, DE Quinton Dial, C Marcus Martin, and S L.J. McCray. Jon Martin will start at right tackle. Rotoworld.com

  • Andre Ellington gets 25 touches in victory
    Andre Ellington managed 67 yards on 19 carries and caught 6-of-9 targets for 26 yards in the Cardinals' Week 6 win over the Redskins.

    Advice: Ellington ripped off an early 18-yard run, but was otherwise bottled up as the Cardinals resumed pushing the ball downfield with Carson Palmer back healthy. A frustrating player to own beyond PPR leagues this season, Ellington has only scored a touchdown in 1-of-6 targets. In standard-scoring formats, Ellington will be an RB2 next week against the Raiders. Rotoworld.com

  • Juwan Thompson rushes for 38 yards vs. Jets
    Broncos RB Juwan Thompson ran as Ronnie Hillman's backup in Denver's Week 6 win over the Jets, rushing eight times for 38 yards.

    Advice: Thompson wasn't targeted in the passing game, but was Hillman's clear No. 2. C.J. Anderson didn't receive a touch. Five of Thompson's touches came on one third-quarter drive. In other words, though he's Hillman's No. 2, he was used more as a breather back than short-yardage specialist. There isn't much re-draft appeal here as the Broncos wait for Montee Ball (groin) to get healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Wes Welker held to one catch in New York
    Wes Welker caught his lone target for eight yards in Denver's Week 6 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Welker's grab came late in the fourth quarter as the Broncos were trying to drain the clock. The one-look day comes after Welker caught at least six passes on nine targets in each of his first two games of the season. He should bounce back as a WR3 in Week 7 against the 49ers. Rotoworld.com

    Emmanuel Sanders caught 3-of-6 targets for 38 yards in Denver's Week 6 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Wes Welker wasn't Sanders' problem — Welker drew only one look — the Broncos just weren't in their normal rhythm on the road in New York. The quiet afternoon snaps Sanders' 7-100 streak at three. Although he has yet to find the end zone this season, Sanders should get back on track as a WR1/2 in Week 7 against the 49ers. Rotoworld.com

    Demaryius Thomas caught 10-of-12 targets for 124 yards and a touchdown in Denver's Week 6 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Thomas caught a 54-yard pass on Denver's first play from scrimmage, and never looked back en route to his second consecutive 120-yard effort. Thomas now has 18 grabs for 350 yards and three touchdowns since the Broncos' Week 4 bye, and has squashed any concern there was about him falling from the ranks of the elite WR1s. San Francisco won't be able to stop him next Sunday night. Rotoworld.com

  • Ronnie Hillman totals 116 yards versus Jets
    Starting in place of Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman rushed 24 times for 100 yards in the Broncos' Week 6 win over the Jets, adding three receptions for an additional 16 yards.

    Advice: Hillman monopolized the Broncos' running back touches, getting 27 to Juwan Thompson's eight. If C.J. Anderson played a snap, we didn't see it. Going up against one of the league's better run defenses, it was easily the most productive game by a Broncos back this season. Hillman, who's been mistake prone in the past, nearly cost himself dearly with a third-quarter fumble, but the Broncos recovered. Coach John Fox decided it was no harm, no foul, and continued to feed Hillman down the stretch. Ticketed for another start in Week 7, Hillman will be a low-end RB2 against the 49ers' strong run defense. Rotoworld.com

  • It's so easy: Julius rings up two more TDs
    Julius Thomas caught 4-of-6 targets for 51 yards and two touchdowns in Denver's Week 6 win over the Jets.

    Advice: A CBS mic caught Thomas screaming "it's so easy!" after he whipped Darrin Walls for his second touchdown. The scores were Thomas' eighth and ninth of the season, putting him on pace for an astronomical 29. We're obviously not expecting him to reach that number, but 20 shouldn't be considered out of reach. With Jimmy Graham banged up and Rob Gronkowski still not himself, Thomas has No. 1 overall tight end status in his sights. Rotoworld.com

    Joe Flacco completed 21-of-29 passes for 306 yards, five touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Ravens' 48-17, Week 6 rout of the Bucs.

    Advice: Coach John Harbaugh and Flacco talked how they were going to focus on getting Torrey Smith more involved after a very disappointing first month of the season. They weren't lying, as Flacco found Smith for back-to-back touchdowns on the Ravens' first two possessions. Flacco later found Kamar Aiken, Michael Campanaro, and Steve Smith Sr. for scores in the first half. The rout was on, and the Ravens took the foot off the gas in the second half. Flacco and the Ravens will host the Falcons next week in another tasty matchup for Baltimore's passing game. Rotoworld.com

  • 49ers do not want to run Gore into the ground
    49ers OC Greg Roman said the team is deliberately limiting Frank Gore's carries this season.

    Advice: "We don't want to just ride that stallion all day, every day," Roman said. "There's a point of diminishing returns at some point." Gore's 77 carries are his second-fewest attempts through five games in his career, while Colin Kaepernick is on pace to throw 64 more times this season than he did in 2013. Gore has seen an uptick in his usage the last two games, getting 24 carries against Philadelphia Week 4 and 18 against the Chiefs last week. Coincidently, both were wins for the 3-2 49ers. Gore should continue to see around 15 carries a game, and will remain a solid RB2 as long as he is healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Broncos to use 'hot hand' approach at RB?
    The Broncos' official website hinted Denver could use a "hot hand" approach at running back against the Jets.

    Advice: "If any specific runner can heat up against the Jets' run defense," DenverBroncos.com's Andrew Mason said, "the Broncos will be best served by riding him for as long as possible." Ronnie Hillman is expected to get the start, but C.J. Anderson and rookie Juwan Thompson will get early work as well. Hillman is still the best fantasy play of the three, but he is nothing more than an RB3/FLEX play against the Jets' tough run defense. Rotoworld.com

  • Cardinals to lean on Ellington more this week
    ESPN Cardinals reporter Josh Weinfuss expects Arizona to lean on Andre Ellington even more this week against the Redskins with Logan Thomas expected to start at quarterback.

    Advice: The Cardinals get the Redskins at home. Arizona has been a better running team on their own turf this season, and Ellington is going to be the focal point of the offense with rookie Thomas under center. He's a lock for 18-plus touches weekly and should flirt with 20-plus against a Washington defense that was gashed by Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch last Monday night. Ellington is a borderline RB1/2, but there aren't many backs with higher ceilings. Rotoworld.com
