  • It's not Johnny Football time quite yet
    Coach Mike Pettine said Brian Hoyer is "still firmly our starter."

    Advice: Hoyer laid an egg in a loss to the previously winless Jaguars in Week 7, looking uncomfortable in the pocket and displaying concerning inaccuracy. But he earned enough leash early in the year to get another start, this time against the 0-6 Raiders. If Hoyer loses that game, the calls for Johnny Manziel will become deafening. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Glennon fully expected to start Sunday
    Mike Glennon is expected to start Sunday's game against the Vikings.

    Advice: Josh McCown (thumb) has resumed practicing, but Glennon has outperformed the veteran badly this season. Over the last three games, Glennon has gone 1-2 with two 300-yard games and a 6:3 TD-to-INT ration. He'll be a two-QB league option against a very burnable Vikings secondary this week. Rotoworld.com

  • Big Ben throws for 265 & 2 TDs in MNF win
    Ben Roethlisberger completed 23-of-33 passes for 265 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Texans on Monday night.

    Advice: Roethlisberger absorbed three sacks and lost his right tackle and left tackle for stretches in this one. The offense got off to a really slow start, being held scoreless until there was 3:08 left in the first half. That's when Big Ben hooked up with rookie WR Martavis Bryant for a 35-yard touchdown over the top of the defense. The flood gates opened for Pittsburgh. Antonio Brown found Lance Moore for a three-yard touchdown 1:41 later, and Ben then found Le'Veon Bell for a two-yard score just 49 seconds after that. Roethlisberger hooked up with Brown nine times for 90 yards and had a 16-yard score called back when Brown couldn't get a second foot in bounds. Ben will be a mid-range QB2 vs. the Colts next week.

  • FitzMagic tosses 2 TDs, INT in MNF loss
    Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 21-of-32 passes for 262 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Texans' Week 7 loss to the Steelers on Monday night.

    Advice: Fitzpatrick played well for much of the first half, leading the Texans on three consecutive scoring drives to open the game. It was a train wreck thereafter. One play after the Steelers had just scored a three-yard touchdown on an Arian Foster fumble at the goal line, Fitzpatrick comes back and tosses an interception at his own 20-yard line with 53 seconds left in the first half. The Steelers scored another TD and totaled 24 points in 2:54 before the break after trailing 13-0 with 3:08 left in the half. The Texans struggled on third downs passing the ball all night. Fitz's TDs went to Alfred Blue and Foster. He's a back-end QB2. Rotoworld.com

  • Browns 'briefly' considered going to Manziel
    Coach Mike Pettine said the Browns "briefly" considered benching Brian Hoyer in favor of Johnny Manziel in Cleveland's 24-6 loss to Jacksonville.

    Advice: How could they not have thought about it? Hoyer dropped the worst game of his career on the Jaguars, going 16-of-41 passing, turning it over twice, and taking three sacks. He missed a number of throws. "It was discussed briefly, but it was a situation where we still wanted to at least try to end the game with Brian on a positive note,'' Pettine said. Pettine went on to say Hoyer is "firmly our starter," but that's hard to believe. Once you start thinking about going to the backup, it's just a matter of time. Hoyer can't afford to lose to the 0-6 Raiders. Rotoworld.com

After facing the Cowboys, the Redskins will play the Vikings in Week 9. That seems like Griffin's earliest-possible return date. In a home game against noodle-armed career journeyman backup McCoy, Dallas' fantasy defense will be worth a look as a Week 8 streamer. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Davis completes 86% of passes in win
    Austin Davis completed 18-of-21 passes for 152 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Seahawks.

    Advice: Davis dinked and dunked his way down the field all afternoon, settling for short passes to his running backs and tight ends. It wasn't flashy by any means, but successful after struggling badly in Week 6 against San Francisco. The lone shot he took downfield was a 30-yard completion to Chris Givens. Davis completed 86 percent of his passes and hooked up with Benny Cunningham and Lance Kendricks for five- and four-yard scores, respectively. Davis is a back-end QB2 with a dreadful schedule (at KC, at SF, at ARZ, vs. DEN, at SD) ahead. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: In other words, it wasn't a one-time thing as the Redskins searched for a "spark." McCoy will get the starter's reps in this week's practices, and get the call against the Cowboys if Robert Griffin III (ankle) isn't ready. Cousins can be safely dropped in all formats of fantasy.

    The Redskins aren't ruling Robert Griffin III (ankle) for Week 8, but he has a "long way to go."

    Advice: "He's got to be 100 percent," coach Jay Gruden said at Monday's presser. Gruden went on to say that Colt McCoy will get the starter's reps in this week's practices, and be under center against the Cowboys if RGIII isn't ready to go. It sounds like Griffin is highly unlikely for Week 8, though he does have an extra day to heal up with the Redskins playing on Monday Night Football. Rotoworld.com

    Coach Jay Gruden wouldn't rule out Robert Griffin III (ankle) returning for Week 8.

    Advice: In the outside chance Griffin looks "great" in practice, top beat writer John Keim expects him to get the nod Monday night against Dallas. If not, it's expected to be Colt McCoy under center. Kirk Cousins has played his way off the map with nine interceptions in the last five games. Griffin was not playing well in Jay Gruden's pocket-passer scheme prior to his injury, but is on the QB1 map anytime he starts due to dual-threat ability. RG3 is a must-add for anyone in need of quarterback help. 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

    Colt McCoy replaced Kirk Cousins at halftime of Washington's 19-17, Week 7 win over the Titans, completing 11-of-12 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown.

    Advice: McCoy found Pierre Garcon for a 70-yard touchdown on his first pass, but was quiet thereafter. Garcon did all the work, making fools of Titans DBs Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Michael Griffin. Coach Jay Gruden didn't want McCoy to do anything other than mind the store, and he obliged by avoiding mistakes. We'd guess Robert Griffin III (ankle) will return for next week's game against the Cowboys, but if not, McCoy will likely get the start over Cousins. He'll be a bottom-three option. Rotoworld.com

    Brian Hoyer completed just 16-of-41 passes for 215 yards and an interception in the Browns' Week 7 loss to Jacksonville.

    Advice: He was sacked three times and lost a fumble. Browns coach Mike Pettine admitted after the game that Cleveland's offense took a "huge step backwards" against the Jaguars, getting dominated in both the run and pass games. Hoyer was terribly inaccurate, most notably missing Jordan Cameron for a wide-open touchdown early in the game. It'll be interesting to see if Hoyer can afford another game like this before the Browns consider Johnny Manziel. It's a good thing for Hoyer that the Browns take on the Raiders next. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: On paper, it looked like a great matchup for Cutler and the passing game. It didn't work out, even with Miami playing two small corners against the Bears' twin towers at receiver. Cutler couldn't get anything going through the air, tossing a bad interception to Reshad Jones with none of his receivers close to Jones. Cutler also lost a fumble at his own 16-yard line. He also took three sacks. Cutler and the Bears go on the road to New England in Week 8. He'll be a back-end QB1. Rotoworld.com

With OC Pep Hamilton taking the chains off, Luck has gone over 300 passing yards in 6-of-7 games and has at least 40 attempts in five of them. Note that he had more than 40 attempts in a game just four times all of last season.

    Advice: Tannehill added 48 yards on the ground. With the Bears minus WLB Lance Briggs, FS Chris Conte, and CB Kyle Fuller, Tannehill completed his first 14 passes of the day, and ended the day with a cool 123.6 passer rating. Tannehill found Charles Clay wide open for a 13-yard touchdown early when SLB Shea McClellin fell down in coverage before then delivering a 10-yard score to Mike Wallace, beating CB Tim Jennings. The only negative was Tannehill was swallowed for four sacks. He has a plus date with the Jaguars on the road next Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Redskins pull plug on Cousins, turn to McCoy
    Kirk Cousins was benched at halftime of Washington's Week 7 game against the Titans.

    Advice: Colt McCoy is now in the game, and threw a 70-yard touchdown to Pierre Garcon on his first attempt. Cousins' benching was richly deserved, as he committed two first-half turnovers, and appeared genuinely spooked. CBS commentator Rich Gannon was less than impressed with Cousins' body language as he went 10-of-16 for 139 yards, zero scores, one pick and one lost fumble. Cousins' fumble was a sack where he held onto the ball for far too long, while his pick was thrown right to LB Wesley Woodyard. Cousins leads the NFL in interceptions despite his part-time slate. Robert Griffin III is shaping up as a strong bet to return in Week 8. Cousins is safely droppable in all formats of fantasy. Rotoworld.com

Kirk Cousins has "led" the Redskins to four consecutive losses, but there's always a chance he could catch fire and force Gruden to keep him in the lineup. The chances of that happening are minimal, as Cousins is a turnover machine and has never shown the ability to win games at the NFL level.

    Austin Davis completed just 21-of-42 passes for 236 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Rams' 31-17, Week 6 loss to the 49ers on Monday night.

    Advice: Davis entered the game completing about 68 percent of his passes. That version of Davis was nowhere to be found tonight. He couldn't hook up with any of his receivers deep and made some very questionable throws. With the 49ers taking Brian Quick away or Quick not winning his routes, Davis leaned on Jared Cook in the passing game, targeting his tight end 11 times. Davis is fun to watch as a risk-taker and cold-blooded passer, but he's more 2013 Case Keenum than the Drew Brees, Brett Favre, and Jay Cutler comparisons we've heard over the past month.

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.

With Kirk Cousins playing extremely up-and-down football in RGIII's absence, the Redskins aren't going to stagger his return. The absolute earliest Griffin is likely to come back is Week 9, but he'll probably remain sidelined through Washington's Week 10 bye. Rotoworld.com

  • Kirk Cousins productive in fantasy Sunday
    Kirk Cousins completed 24-of-38 passes for 354 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Redskins' Week 6 loss to Arizona.

    Advice: Cousins got the Redskins on the board early in the second quarter by threading a 64-yard touchdown dart to DeSean Jackson, who whipped Patrick Peterson. Cousins hit Pierre Garcon for a five-yard score to give Washington some late-game life, but was pick sixed on the Redskins' ensuing possession by Cardinals S Rashad Johnson. Just a week-to-week streamer QB in fantasy, Cousins will continue to be a turnover-prone option next week against the Titans, albeit with upside. Jay Gruden is letting Cousins be a gunslinger.

  • Jay Cutler throws for 381 yards in road win
    Jay Cutler completed 26-of-38 passes for 381 yards and one touchdown in Chicago's 27-13, Week 6 win over the Falcons.

    Advice: The 381 yards were Cutler's most as a Bear as he averaged a cool 10.0 yards per attempt. Cutler spent his afternoon peppering Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery with deep bombs, finding his two mountainous wideouts for a combined 11/249. It was a fluke that Cutler escaped the dominating effort with only one score. The Dolphins present a much-stiffer defensive test in Week 7, but Cutler should keep rolling as a QB1 at home.

  • Ryan Tannehill finds groove in 2nd half
    Ryan Tannehill completed 19-of-30 passes for 227 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Tannehill was absolutely atrocious in the first half, looking nothing like the quarterback we saw shred the Raiders in London prior to the bye. But he really composed himself in the second half, finding a new reliable slot option in Jarvis Landry and letting Mike Wallace make plays after the catch. Tannehill has now gone over 200 yards and thrown at least one touchdown in four straight games. He'll be a low-upside QB2 at Chicago in Week 7. Rotoworld.com

  • Ben Roethlisberger manages only 228 yards
    Ben Roethlisberger completed 21-of-42 passes for 228 yards, one touchdown and an interception in Pittsburgh's 31-10, Week 6 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: Big Ben and the Steelers could never get in rhythm, and in continuing a running theme, got less efficient the closer they got to the end zone. Roethlisberger has now been held to just one touchdown in back-to-back games, but the pick was his first since Week 2. The ball got batted at the line of scrimmage. Roethlisberger will take an 8:3 TD:INT ratio into next week's game against the Texans. He'll be a low-end QB1 against a defense that just got dominated by Andrew Luck. Rotoworld.com

  • Hoyer piles up 217 yards on only 17 attempts
    Brian Hoyer completed 8-of-17 passes for 217 yards and one touchdown in Cleveland's 31-10, Week 6 rout of the Steelers.

    Advice: That's a 12.8 YPA if you're counting at home. The Browns didn't need Hoyer to make big plays as they gashed Pittsburgh on the ground, but he did anyways, finding Jordan Cameron for strikes of 42 and 51 yards, with the latter going for a score. Hoyer also found Travis Benjamin and Jim Dray for completions of 30-plus yards. Hoyer's fantasy upside remains extremely limited in Cleveland's run-first offense, but he's doing exactly what the Browns hoped he would when they installed him over Johnny Manziel. Rotoworld.com

  • Glennon throws for 314 yards, 2 TDs in loss
    Mike Glennon completed 24-of-44 passes for 314 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Bucs' 48-17, Week 6 blowout loss the Ravens.

    Advice: Glennon was sacked five times and hit another handful of times as the Tampa line proved once again it can't block anyone. The offense couldn't get anything going until the scoreboard read 38-0 early in the second quarter. With the Ravens playing soft defense after the break, Glennon and the Bucs padded their stats. Glennon's two scores went to Mike Evans and Louis Murphy. The Bucs head into their bye week before hosting the Vikings in Week 8. It's unclear if Glennon or Josh McCown (thumb) will get that start.

  • Redskins declare Week 6 inactives
    Redskins declared QB Robert Griffin III, WR Aldrick Robinson, CB Tracy Porter, LB Perry Riley, LB Jackson Jeffcoat, OG Spencer Long, and OT Morgan Moses inactive for Week 6 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Griffin (ankle) did some running and throwing on the field during pre-game warmups Sunday, but remains out indefinitely. Kirk Cousins' performance over the next few games will determine whether RG3 has any opportunity to regain the Redskins' starting job when healthy. Rotoworld.com
