Player Notes

  • Chris Hogan fumbles in win over Pittsburgh
    Chris Hogan tallied two catches for 25 yards on two targets Sunday in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Steelers.

    Advice: Hogan coughed it up on the Patriots’ first play from scrimmage, resulting in the game’s first turnover. He reeled in a 13-yarder early in the second quarter but wasn’t targeted again after that. Sunday extended Hogan’s touchdown drought to six games. He’ll have plenty of motivation to play well next week when he returns to Buffalo. Hogan remains well off the fantasy radar. Today, 5:19 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Dontrelle Inman totals 58 yards vs. Falcons
    Dontrelle Inman caught 3-of-6 targets for 58 yards in the Chargers' Week 7 win over the Falcons.

    Advice: The yards were Inman's second most of the season. Inman is a full-time member of the Chargers' pass catcher rotation, but it isn't translating to fantasy value. Even in PPR, he can't be trusted as a WR5. Today, 5:15 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • DuJuan Harris gets 13 touches vs. Bucs
    DuJuan Harris rushed 11 times for 39 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Advice: The 49ers opened the game with Mike Davis as the starter, but they went with the hot hand when Harris showed the most juice. Davis wound up with just seven touches to Harris' 13 and Shaun Draughn's 6. As Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is due back after the 49ers' Week 8 bye, this fill-in RBBC is safe to ignore. Today, 5:05 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Torrey Smith goes 1-17 against Bucs
    Torrey Smith caught 1-of-2 targets for 17 yards in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Bucs.

    Advice: Smith was in noticeable pain at times during this game, battling a back injury that had him listed as questionable on the injury report coming in. He is safe to drop in 12-team leagues during the 49ers' Week 8 bye. Today, 4:49 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Kerley goes 2-15 against Tampa Bay
    Jeremy Kerley caught 2-of-5 targets for 15 yards in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Advice: Kerley's fantasy value was zapped when Blaine Gabbert got benched. Today, 4:48 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Julius Thomas finds end-zone against Oakland
    Julius Thomas caught 3-of-7 targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against Oakland.

    Advice: Thomas scored Jacksonville's only touchdown on a nine-yard pass late in the fourth quarter. He looked fully healthy despite missing practice time with an ankle injury this week. Thomas came into Sunday with only 13 catches, but should remain more of a factor going forward. He'll get a matchup with Tennessee in Week 8. Today, 4:34 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Quizz totals 164 yards against hapless 49ers
    Jacquizz Rodgers rushed 26 times for 154 yards and caught his lone target for nine yards in the Bucs' Week 7 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: The 49ers have now given up a 100-yard rusher in six straight games, and they also allowed a 44-yard touchdown run to Bucs No. 2 back Peyton Barber in this one. Bucs coach Dirk Koetter has shown no fear in utilizing Rodgers as a high-volume workhorse, and it doesn't sound like Doug Martin (hamstring) is coming back any time soon. Rodgers will remain a locked-in RB1 when the Bucs face the Raiders next. Yes, Quizz Rodgers is a fantasy RB1. Today, 4:28 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Charles Clay catches 2 balls in loss to Miami
    Charles Clay caught 2-of-5 targets for 29 yards in the Bills' Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

    Advice: Clay made a nice leaping 18-yard catch, but that was about it for him. He's been banged up all season and hasn't established himself as anything more than a TE2 ahead of a Week 8 date with the Patriots. Today, 3:10 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Kendall Wright held to 2-12 against Colts
    Kendall Wright caught 2-of-4 targets for 12 yards in the Titans' Week 7 loss to the Colts.

    Advice: Still only about a 33-percent player in the Titans' offense, Wright is destined to be up and down from a fantasy standpoint. Despite his Week 6 breakout, Wright won't be worth using in fantasy leagues in Week 8 against the Jaguars. Today, 2:33 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Snead impresses with 87 yards in Week 7
    Willie Snead nabbed nine-of-11 targets for 87 yards Sunday in the Saints' Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: It was a nice return to form for Snead, who had averaged just 41.3 yards over his previous three games. Snead was a steady presence all game, hauling in five catches for 51 yards in the first half before adding four receptions for 36 yards after halftime. His longest gain came on a 17-yard pass from Drew Brees on a third-down conversion midway through the first quarter. He’ll be a risky WR3 next week against the Seahawks’ stacked secondary. Today, 2:24 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • DeMarco Murray: 127 total yards, TD vs. Colts
    DeMarco Murray rushed 25 times for 107 yards and a touchdown and caught 3-of-5 targets for 20 yards in the Titans' Week 7 loss to the Colts.

    Advice: Murray was basically the lock of the week in DFS and proceeded to hit, even in a game where the Colts played surprisingly decent run defense and prevented Murray from hitting any runs of longer than 14 yards. On Thursday Night Football in Week 8, Murray will take on a Jaguars defense that has been weaker versus the run than the pass. He is an elite RB1 play every week. Today, 2:20 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Swoope goes 2-51 against Titans
    Colts TE Erik Swoope caught 2-of-5 targets for 51 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Titans.

    Advice: Swoope made catches for gains of 34 and 17 yards, giving the Colts' some big-play ability in the absence of Dwayne Allen, Phillip Dorsett, and Donte Moncrief. A former basketball player, Swoope lacks re-draft fantasy appeal but is a name to keep in mind. The 24-year-old is worth a look in Dynasty leagues. Today, 2:06 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Matt Asiata leads backfield with 80 total yds
    Matt Asiata rushed 12 times for 55 yards and added 25 yards on six catches Week 7 against the Eagles.

    Advice: With Jerick McKinnon in and out of the lineup with an ankle injury, Asiata was the primary back in the second half. He had a couple nice third down conversions including a long run on third-and-13 in the third quarter, but he was stuffed more often than not. Asiata will be interesting if McKinnon is not ready to face the Bears on Monday night. Today, 1:49 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Bilal Powell goes 4-18 against Ravens
    Bilal Powell rushed four times for 18 yards in the Jets' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

    Advice: He was not targeted in the passing game. Powell had out-snapped and out-targeted Matt Forte several consecutive weeks entering Sunday's contest, but he was little more than a "breather" back against the Ravens. Powell can only be viewed as Forte's handcuff entering a Week 8 date with the Browns. Today, 1:46 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Robby Anderson totals 71 yards against BAL
    Jets WR Robby Anderson caught 3-of-3 targets for 41 yards and rushed once for 30 yards in New York's Week 7 win over Baltimore.

    Advice: Anderson showed playmaking ability on his opportunities to touch the ball, and should get more in the absence of Eric Decker. Anderson is an excellent athlete who went undrafted out of Temple. He's worth a look in deep Dynasty leagues. Today, 1:39 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Tyrod throws for 221 yards, runs for 35
    Tyrod Taylor completed 14-of-28 passes for 221 yards and one touchdown in the Bills' Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

    Advice: He also led the team with 35 rushing yards to go along with an additional 10-yard touchdown. LeSean McCoy tried playing through a hamstring injury, only to be completely ineffective before getting yanked shortly after halftime. It's possible he re-tweaked the hammy. With no running game to speak of and no Sammy Watkins or Robert Woods, producing points was a chore for the Bills. Taylor's touchdown was a 67-yard bomb to Marquise Goodwin. Taylor and the 4-3 Bills host Tom Brady and the Patriots in Week 8. Today, 1:38 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Kevin Hogan runs for 104 + TD, throws for 100
    Kevin Hogan completed 12-of-24 passes for 100 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Browns' 31-17, Week 7 loss to the Bengals, adding 104 rushing yards and one touchdown.

    Advice: Cody Kessler was concussed in the first half, forcing Hogan into quarterback duties. The only offense Cleveland had was using Hogan and Isaiah Crowell on read-option plays. It had the Bengals' defense all out of sorts early, with Hogan running for a 28-yard touchdown and Crowell scoring a short one. Cincinnati eventually figured it out, and Hogan collapsed for most of the second half. If Kessler can't get cleared, Hogan will be under center against the Jets in Week 8. Today, 1:13 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Bucs declare Week 7 inactives
    Bucs declared RB Doug Martin, DT Clinton McDonald, DE Robert Ayers, OL Leonard Wester, OL Caleb Benenoch, CB Johnthan Banks, and QB Ryan Griffin inactive for Week 7 against the 49ers.

    Advice: Martin is out indefinitely with a hamstring injury with which he has endured setbacks. Jacquizz Rodgers will be the Bucs' workhorse against the 49ers. Today, 11:55 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Quick makes several big plays, crucial error
    Brian Quick caught 4-of-9 targets for 92 yards Week 7 against the Giants.

    Advice: Quick made a couple big plays, going for 48 yards on a double move in the first half and converting a fourth down on the final drive of the game. Unfortunately, Quick miscommunicated with Case Keenum with the Rams driving for a tie, leading to Keenum's fourth and final interception in the end zone. Coach Jeff Fisher seemed blame Quick after the game for the miscue. Despite the final play, Quick tied for second on the team with nine targets and once again looked good. He will be worth a dart throw in deep leagues against the Panthers after the bye. Today, 10:15 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Dwayne Harris carted off with back injury
    Giants WR/KR Dwayne Harris was carted off the field Week 7 with an apparent back injury.

    Advice: Harris took a big shot to the back on a punt return right before halftime. He stayed on the field for several minutes before riding the cart into the locker room. He is officially questionable to return. Today, 8:05 am
