Player Notes

  • Dwayne Washington listed as questionable
    Dwayne Washington (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Advice: Despite the Q tag, Washington is expected to play against the Redskins. Beat writers believe Washington will share the load with Zach Zenner. Yesterday, 9:06 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Eifert likely to have limited role if active
    Tyler Eifert (questionable, back) is expected to play limited snaps if active for Sunday's game.

    Advice: Coach Marvin Lewis was non-committal when asked about Eifert's Week 7 availability. The Bengals are expected to make a decision on his status Saturday. With his role up in the air coming off multiple setbacks, Eifert is going to be a touchdown-dependent TE2 if he plays. Yesterday, 3:38 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • John Brown (hamstring) doubtful for Week 7
    John Brown (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 7.

    Advice: He's not going to play against Seattle on Sunday night. Brown missed practice all week with a leg issue that stems from sickle-cell. With Jaron Brown's (questionable, knee) status up in the air, J.J. Nelson should see time in three-wide sets. Yesterday, 2:49 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Hurns (shoulder) no longer on injury report
    Allen Hurns (shoulder) returned to a full practice on Friday.

    Advice: He's no longer listed on the Jags' injury report. That cements his status as a WR3 Sunday in a mouth-watering matchup against Oakland's non-existent secondary. Yesterday, 1:38 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Eric Ebron (ankle, knee) ruled out for Sunday
    Eric Ebron (ankle, knee) is out for Week 7 against the Redskins.

    Advice: This will be his third straight absence. Ebron hasn't resumed practicing and remains week to week. Khari Lee and Clay Harbor have been splitting time at tight end with Ebron sidelined. They're merely blockers. Yesterday, 1:13 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Nuk Hopkins (hammy) returns to full practice
    DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) returned to a full practice on Friday.

    Advice: Hopkins will be all systems go for Monday night's clash with the Broncos. Yesterday, 12:32 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Chargers list Travis Benjamin as questionable
    Travis Benjamin (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Falcons.

    Advice: The expectation remains that Benjamin will play in this week's most obvious shootout, although we'll have to keep monitoring his status. On the off chance Benjamin does not play, Tyrell Williams' fantasy outlook would soar. If Benjamin goes -- and he should -- he will be an upside WR2 option in Atlanta. Yesterday, 12:00 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Ravens list Kamar Aiken (thigh) questionable
    Kamar Aiken (thigh) is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Jets.

    Advice: Aiken showed up on the injury report Thursday but has practiced on a limited basis the last two days. He'll be ready to roll on Sunday. Aiken's role takes on greater significance with Steve Smith Sr. still nursing an ankle sprain. Regardless, he isn't a recommended fantasy play. Yesterday, 12:00 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Ravens list Flacco (shoulder) as questionable
    Joe Flacco (shoulder) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Jets.

    Advice: The full practice puts Flacco on track to play in a juicy matchup against New York's porous pass defense. Flacco has been a poor fantasy quarterback this year, but he's not going to get a better matchup (until he faces Cleveland). Yesterday, 11:59 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • O'Brien confirms Fuller will return for MNF
    Texans coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Friday that Will Fuller (hamstring) will play in Week 7 against the Broncos.

    Advice: He's been limited at practice the last two days. Fuller was close enough to playing last week that he was active against the Colts, but he didn't actually set foot on the field. That will change on Monday Night Football. Unfortunately, Fuller is taking on a Denver defense that gives up zilch to opposing wide receivers. He would be a poor fantasy WR3 play. Yesterday, 11:23 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • J. Charles has knee swelling, questionable
    Jamaal Charles experienced knee swelling on Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Saints.

    Advice: Charles was added to Friday's injury report as questionable, going through only a "limited" practice. Charles has encountered multiple setbacks since tearing his ACL last Week 5 and is now in legitimate danger of not playing against New Orleans. Look for another heavy workload out of Spencer Ware regardless of whether Charles suits up. Even if Charles is active, he would be a high-risk flex option. Ware remains an every-week fantasy RB1. Yesterday, 11:14 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Redskins send Josh Doctson (Achilles) to IR
    Redskins placed WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) on injured reserve.

    Advice: He'll miss a minimum of eight weeks, meaning the earliest we'd see Doctson back on the field is Week 15. The more likely scenario is that Docton packs it in for the year. He's been battling Achilles issues off and on since minicamp with no signs of improvement. The first-round rookie has played just 31 offensive snaps this year. Yesterday, 10:40 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • DeAngelo Williams ruled out with knee injury
    DeAngelo Williams (knee) has been ruled out for Week 7.

    Advice: Fitzgerald Toussaint will back up Le'Veon Bell against New England. Williams has no timetable for a return, but we suspect he'll be back after the Steelers' Week 8 bye. This is your cue to drop him in shallower fantasy leagues. Yesterday, 10:39 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Bills rookie Lawson to debut
    The Buffalo Bills will get rookie LB Shaq Lawson (shoulder) back in Week 7 after spending six weeks on the PUP list.

    Advice: Lawson has practiced this week and will be worked into the Bills' defensive rotation on Sunday at Miami. "I’ve seen enough. He looks pretty darn good out there. He’s flying around and looks like the guy we drafted, the guy we wanted him to be," said coach Rex Ryan. Buffalo has allowed just 13.3 points and 214.3 passing yards per game since Week 2 as the Bills D/ST has become a top fantasy option. A welcoming matchup at Miami awaits the Bills in Week 7. Yesterday, 10:23 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins out again for Week 7
    Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Ravens.

    Advice: The Jets will continue to roll four-wide sets with Brandon Marshall, Quincy Enunwa, Charone Peake, and Robby Anderson. ASJ remains week to week. Yesterday, 9:48 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Jerry Jones expects Dez Bryant to play Week 8
    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he expects Dez Bryant (knee) to play Week 8 against the Eagles.

    Advice: Bryant has already said he's playing, so this is just further confirmation. It's a tough matchup right out of the gates between two of the slowest offenses in the league and the Eagles' top-five pass defense, but Bryant will be a must-start as a WR2. Dak Prescott has already been named the quarterback. Yesterday, 9:43 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • T.Y. Hilton (hip) returns to practice Friday
    T.Y. Hilton (hip) returned to practice Friday.

    Advice: Hilton has routinely been getting rest days during the practice weeks. He's not in any danger of missing Week 7 against the Titans. With his massive target share for the depleted Colts, Hilton remains a strong WR1/2. Yesterday, 8:24 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • No more limitations on Green-Beckham in PHI
    Eagles OC Frank Reich said Dorial Green-Beckham doesn't have "any limitations anymore."

    Advice: After playing just 44.4 percent of the offensive snaps in the first four games, DGB was in on 80.1 percent of the plays last week against the Redskins. He's taking more and more snaps away from Josh Huff and could soon start pushing Nelson Agholor down the depth chart. DGB isn't a recommended fantasy option against the Vikings, but he could break out soon. Yesterday, 6:51 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • OBJ taken off injury report, will play vs. LA
    Odell Beckham (hip) will play Week 7 against the Rams.

    Advice: After missing practice Wednesday, OBJ practiced Thursday and Friday and is good to go for the London game. Against the Trumaine Johnson-less Rams, this spot is even juicier than last week when Beckham ripped apart the Ravens for 8-222-2, doing most of his damage after hurting the hip. Yesterday, 6:19 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Carey leads Bears with 48 yards in Week 7
    Ka'Deem Carey managed 48 yards on 10 carries and caught his only target for nine yards Thursday in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Packers.

    Advice: He out-touched Jordan Howard 11-7 and outgained him by 35 yards (57-22). His longest run came on a 24-yard burst midway through the second quarter. Carey’s standalone value is still limited but his increased presence has been a big drain on Howard’s production over the last two weeks. Carey gets a tough matchup against Minnesota in Week 8. Thursday, 9:49 pm
