  • Diontae Johnson (toe) held out of practice
    Diontae Johnson (toe) did not practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Johnson left Sunday's game against the Titans after 15 targets, limping off with trainers. He just returned from a back injury that kept him out for Week 6. A massive game against the Ravens is in store on Sunday, and the Steelers are obviously better with their top target on the field. Continue to monitor the injury reports each day this week.

  • Arians: Antonio Brown will be ready for Week 9
    Bucs coach Bruce Arians said WR Antonio Brown will be "ready to go" for Week 9 against the Saints.

    Advice: Arians adds that Brown "looks fantastic" and is already participating in meetings and strength work. The Bucs are considered one of the top teams in the NFL through seven weeks of the season, but adding a volatile ingredient like Brown to a currently well-designed recipe will either hurt the final product or act as the missing piece, helping it reach its best form. Chris Godwin has been ruled out for Week 8 with a broken finger, so if his Week 9 status is in doubt Brown could be instantly in line for a significant role. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:51 pm

  • Travis Homer (knee) will not practice on Wednesday
    Seahawks RB Travis Homer (knee contusion) will be held out of practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Homer suffered the injury against the Cardinals and head coach Pete Carroll added the back was "moving better" on Wednesday than earlier in the week. Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde are also dealing with their own injuries, with Carson's appearing to be the most severe. Through six games played, Homer's season-high in touches is five.

  • Carroll calls Hyde's hamstring 'nothing major'
    Coach Pete Carroll called Carlos Hyde's hamstring tightness "nothing major."  

    Advice: We will update Hyde's designation once his practice status is announced. With Chris Carson a game-time decision, Hyde has a great chance of absorbing Carson's entire workload, an average of 14 touches per game, against the 49ers if he handles this week of practice well.

  • Miles Sanders (knee) misses Wednesday's practice
    Miles Sanders (knee) did not participate in Wednesday's practice. 

    Advice: Sanders missed Week 7's game last Thursday with the injury, and early reports suggested a 1-2 week timeline for the running back's return. More information will arrive in Thursday and Friday's injury reports. Boston Scott handled 15 touches in Sanders' absence last week, totaling 92 yards. Sunday night's matchup against the Cowboys is an exciting one for whichever lead back gets the call. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:15 pm

  • Arians labels Fournette his 'nickel' runner
    Bucs coach Bruce Arians has labeled Leonard Fournette his "nickel" running back. 

    Advice: Per reporter Greg Auman, Fournette has supplanted LeSean McCoy in "hurry-up and obvious passing situations." That much was clear in Sunday's rout of the Raiders. The new role has severely narrowed Fournette's committee with Ronald Jones, though RoJo is seemingly still the lead dog on early downs and near the goal line. We probably haven't seen the last development in this never-ending backfield competition. Both Fournette and Jones are in the RB22-28 range for Week 8 against the Giants.  Rotoworld.com Today, 3:07 pm

  • Chris Carson (foot) draws 'game-time decision' tag
    Coach Pete Carroll called RB Chris Carson (foot) a game-time decision ahead of Week 8's contest against the 49ers.

    Advice: Just two days ago, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport termed Carson's injury "week-to-week," but Pete Carroll is among the most optimistic of head coaches when referencing injury timelines. Sunday's game against the 49ers is in the 4:00 window, so hopefully more clarity will arrive before lineups are settled in the first window. An educated guess would suggest Carson will sit for at least one week, leaving Carlos Hyde in line for 15 touches. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:04 pm

    Advice: Mixon is allegedly considered day to day, but coach Zac Taylor has long been coy about his players' true statuses with injuries. We need to see Mixon practice before even thinking he'll be able to play. Giovani Bernard will be a borderline RB1/2 for however long Mixon is sidelined. Cincinnati hosts the Titans in Week 8.

    Julio Jones was limited in Tuesday's practice with a hip issue. 

    Advice: Jones was also limited on Monday. It's a new issue. We haven't heard anything about it being serious, but it is best not to assume things with Jones and his health. At least based on what we know Tuesday afternoon, Jones should be out there as an elite WR1 for Thursday evening's mouthwatering matchup with the Panthers.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:48 pm

  • Carlos Hyde dealing with hamstring tightness
    Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde is dealing with hamstring tightness and is uncertain to play Week 8 against the 49ers. 

    Advice: Hyde joins Seattle's backfield injury report with Chris Carson, who's week to week with a mid-foot sprain, and Travis Homer, who has a bruised knee. That leaves rookie DeeJay Dallas as the only healthy running back on the roster. Rashaad Penny is recovering from a knee injury and won't be available anytime soon. The Seahawks may be unable to bring in running back reinforcements in time to play the Niners, thanks to COVID-19 testing protocols for incoming players. Dallas could be the default workhorse back for Seattle in Week 8. He should be picked up in all leagues.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:38 am

  • Chris Carson 'week-to-week' with mid-foot sprain
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Chris Carson (foot) is considered "week-to-week."

    Advice: Carson is expected to miss "some time" with the 49ers, Bills, Rams and Cardinals on deck in Seattle's next four games. With Travis Homer (knee) also exiting early on Sunday night, Carlos Hyde unsurprisingly played 41-of-84 snaps, soaking up a team-high 18 backfield touches. Hyde is expected to stay the team's bell-cow over rookie DeeJay Dallas until Carson returns. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:08 pm

  • Taylor: Joe Mixon (foot) considered day-to-day
    Bengals coach Zac Taylor said Joe Mixon (foot) is considered "day-to-day."

    Advice: Taylor has always been coy with Cincinnati's injuries, so this type of non-answer was expected. With the team's bye right around the corner in Week 9, it would not be shocking if Taylor chose to hold out LT Jonah Williams (neck), C Trey Hopkins (neck) and Mixon to ensure all an extended rest. Giovani Bernard would again rank as a high-end RB2 with a bell-cow role if Mixon isn't able to return to practice. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:19 pm

  • Tim Patrick (hamstring) considered 'day to day'
    Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Tim Patrick (hamstring) is "day to day."

    Advice: Like the rest of Denver's offense, Patrick was a non-factor on Sunday, becoming limited in-game with a soft tissue injury. He was replaced in the interim by both DaeSean Hamilton and Tyrie Cleveland. Coming off back-to-back 100-yard performances prior to injury, Patrick would garner WR4 status against the Chargers if he's cleared for Week 8. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:24 am

  • Antonio Brown to start practicing Wednesday
    Bucs WR Antonio Brown will start practicing with the team Wednesday. 

    Advice: Brown, who signed a one-year contract with Tampa worth up to $2.5 million, will be eligible to play Week 9 against the Saints. Brown could further sink Mike Evans' fantasy prospects. Evans has three receptions in two games since Chris Godwin returned to the lineup. He'll likely become a shaky flex option with Brown in the Bucs lineup. After saying in March that Brown was "not a fit" for the Bucs, head coach Bruce Arians said the team signed the volatile wideout -- who has been accused by two women in the past year of sexual misconduct -- because he has "matured." Brown should be picked up in all formats.  Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:21 am

  • Uncle Lenny out-snaps Ronald Jones vs. Raiders
    Bucs RB Leonard Fournette led the backfield with 40 snaps in Week 7 against the Raiders. 

    Advice: Ronald Jones saw 31 snaps against Vegas. Fournette rushed 11 times for 50 yards, tacking on six catches for 47 yards in Tampa's Week 7 victory. Fully recovered from his ankle injury, Fournette took over pass catching duties from Jones, who has been awful in that role. A healthy Fournette lowers Jones' weekly floor, which seemed sturdy just a week ago. Fournette could be a flex option next week against the Giants.  Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:54 am

    Advice: Carson suffered a mid-foot sprain Sunday night against Arizona and did not return in the second half. He's undergoing an MRI today. Fantasy managers should keep a close watch over the Seahawks' injury report this week. Carlos Hyde could see a spot start if Carson is held out of the team's Week 8 game against the Niners.  Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:39 am

  • Chris Carson to have MRI on injured foot
    Seahawks RB Chris Carson has a mid-foot sprain and will have an MRI Monday. 

    Advice: The results of the MRI should tell the team how much time Carson will miss. Though he returned to the sideline Sunday night against Arizona after leaving the game in the first half, Carson did not reenter the game. Carlos Hyde took over for Carson, carrying the ball 15 times for 68 yards and a touchdown. Hyde, who should be rostered in all formats, would be an RB2 candidate next week against the 49ers based on volume alone.  Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:00 am

  • Hyde has expanded role with Carson sidelined
    Carlos Hyde rushed 15 times for 68 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Hyde took over late in the second quarter after Chris Caron left with a foot injury. He averaged 4.5 YPC and scored on a 20-plus yard run, but ceded pass down work to Travis Homer and DJ Dallas. Carson was seen walking around the sidelines, so it’s possible he returns next week. If not, Hyde would be a plug-in RB2. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:31 pm

  • N'Keal Harry has one catch in Week 7 vs. 49ers
    N'Keal Harry caught his only target for six yards in the Patriots' Week 7 loss to the 49ers. 

    Advice: Harry was knocked out of the game at the end of the first quarter with a head injury. Appearing woozy after a big hit over the middle, Harry was helped to the blue medical tent, then to the locker room. In his place, Jakobi Meyers led the team in targets and had 60 yards receiving against the Niners. Harry should be on the waiver wire, whether or not he plays in Week 8 against Buffalo.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:03 pm

    Tim Patrick caught 3-of-4 targets for 44 yards in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chiefs. 

    Advice: Coming off back-to-back 100-yard efforts, Patrick appeared headed for another big day after registering 2/32 in the first quarter. Instead, he caught only one more pass as Drew Lock put a brutal game on film. Patrick is the closest thing the Broncos have to a No. 1 receiver right now, but that does not amount to consistent WR3 value with Lock pulling the trigger. The Chargers are on tap for Week 8.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:53 pm

  • Fournette handles 17 touches to RoJo's 14 Sunday
    Leonard Fournette rushed 11 times for 50 yards, tacking on six catches for another 47 yards in Tampa Bay's Week 7 win over the Raiders.

    Advice: For those thinking Fournette was only used because the game got out of hand, think again: 10 of his backfield-high 17 touches came in the first half to help build Tampa Bay's 21-10 lead at the intermission. It was basically Fournette's first appearance since he initially rolled his ankle back in Week 3, and he admittedly looked spry and explosive in opening the game with a 25-yard dash and picking up a crucial 3rd-and-13 through the air to help close this one with a 21-0 run. Ronald Jones (13/34/1) fell into the end zone in the fourth quarter, but Fournette had numerous chances inside the 10-yard line throughout play. His stock is rising as a potential RB2 in Tampa Bay's Week 8 matchup against the Giants. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:39 pm

  • Julio Jones has 97 yards in loss to Lions
    Julio Jones caught 8-of-9 targets for 97 yards in the Falcons' Week 7 loss to the Lions.

    Advice: The nine targets led the team, and Jones has now posted back-to-back big games, totaling 17-234-2 over the last two weeks after missing Week 5 with a hamstring injury. Jones' hamstring may not be 100%, but an 80% Julio is still better than the vast majority of NFL wideouts. Anytime he's active, Jones is a high-upside WR1. He'll get a date with the Panthers in Week 8. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:10 pm

  • Diontae Johnson sees 15 targets, leaves in 4th QT
    Diontae Johnson caught 9-of-15 targets for 80 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Titans.

    Advice: Johnson, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Chase Claypool played most of the receiver snaps with James Washington primarily hanging around on the sidelines. Johnson was peppered with targets early in the game. He still made a few bad plays, but he was a chain mover and ended with two short touchdowns to cap off drives. When healthy, Johnson has led the Steelers in targets. The issue is he left late in the game with another ailment. This time a leg or ankle injury. He limped off with trainers. His practice reports are worth tracking. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:12 pm

  • Austin Hooper officially out for Week 7
    Browns declared WR Taywan Taylor, LB Jacob Phillips, G Wyatt Teller, TE Austin Hooper, and DE Joe Jackson inactive for Week 7 against the Bengals.

    Advice: Hooper (appendicitis) was ruled out earlier in the week. That gave the team enough time to get Harrison Bryant the requisite practice reps to start at tight end over David Njoku. A former first-round pick of a past Cleveland regime, Njoku will likely look for a new home in the spring. Bryant is a risky TE2 this week. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:34 am

    Advice: With both Jones and Ervin inactive Sunday, the Packers made all three of Jamaal Williams, A.J. Dillon and Dexter Williams available against Houston. Fantasy players should expect Williams to carry the load as an RB2 while Dillon mixes in as an RB4/FLEX on early downs. Robert Tonyan was also made available for Sunday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:33 am

    Advice: Mixon has already been ruled out for Week 7 against the Browns. Giovani Bernard figures to get the bulk of the backfield work for Cincinnati in his absence. Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams will back up Bernard as long as Mixon is out.

    Advice: Thomas hasn't played since Week 1 after suffering an ankle injury in his opener, getting suspended for an altercation with a teammate, and now dealing with a hamstring injury. Emmanuel Sanders is on the COVID-19 list and will not play this week, leaving the WR1 job in New Orleans to Tre'Quan Smith. Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harris will start in three-receiver sets. Expect to see a lot of snaps with Latavius Murray and Alvin Kamara on the field. Taysom Hill could also earn a larger role versus the Panthers this week.

  • Antonio Brown contract worth up to $2.5 million
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown's one-year contract has a max value of $2.5 million after incentives.

    Advice: The deal includes a $750,000 bonus for a Super Bowl win. It also features bonuses for receptions, yards, TDs thresholds, each of which is worth $250K. All three statistical bonuses include the caveat that Tampa Bay must make the playoffs. The rest of his contract is $1 million in base salary and roster bonuses. Brown's range of outcomes is incredibly wide in Tampa Bay. Fantasy managers should view him as a flex option once he takes the field. His ceiling could be much higher if he takes on a large role and looks like the Brown of 2018 when he last played in Pittsburgh.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:20 am

  • Aaron Jones travels, will attempt to play Week 7
    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Packers RB Aaron Jones has traveled to Houston with the team and remains a game-time decision for Week 7 against the Texans.

    Advice: Pelissero also added that the Green Bay medical staff has historically been cautious with their players. An MRI revealed a mild calf strain and if "Jones isn't 100%, he won't go." That likely means that Jones is still set to miss this week. Davante Adams recently attempted to play through a hamstring injury only for the medical staff to shut him down. Jamaal Williams will be a borderline RB1 if Jones is ruled out and rookie A.J. Dillon could see enough carries to be worth a shot at flex. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:19 am

    Advice: Per Wood, Green Bay "isn't expected to push" Jones despite his own confidence in his ability to play through the injury. If Jones is indeed inactive, Jamaal Williams immediately becomes a borderline RB1/2 with rookie AJ Dillon possibly flirting with double-digit carries. Jones' issue doesn't seem like a long-term one.

  • Schefter: Bucs sign Antonio Brown to a 1-year deal
    Bucs signed Antonio Brown to a one-year contract.

    Advice: The final details of the contract have to be finalized and Brown must go through COVID-19 protocols, but Brown is eligible to play as soon as Week 9 according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Brown and Tom Brady have a relationship dating back years, and Tampa Bay is all in for a 2020 Super Bowl run. For fantasy, it will be difficult for Brown, Chris Godwin, and Mike Evans to see sustained production unless Brady turns into a true MVP candidate for the rest of the season. Brown's upside, however, is undeniable, making him at least a WR3/flex option once he gets his feet wet in the new system. Mr. Big Chest will have to keep his head on straight to make this signing pay off. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:06 pm

    Advice: A bit of good news for Jones drafters looking forward to a superb matchup against Houston's terrible run defense. Jones remains a game-time call. Jamaal Wiliams will likely lead the backfield in touches if Jones is inactive, and AJ Dillon should see some usage behind Williams.  Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:40 pm

  • Aaron Jones (calf) a game-time call vs. HOU
    Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) will be a game-time decision in Week 7 against the Texans. 

    Advice: Jones suffered the setback in practice. He has a plus matchup against a Houston team being gouged for 177.5 rushing yards per game -- the highest mark in the league. Jamaal Williams, who will likely take lead-back duties if Jones is out, should be rostered in all formats. He'll be a mid-range RB2 against Houston. AJ Dillon should be mixed into the backfield workload too, though he's no more than a desperation flex in deep leagues if Jones is inactive.  Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:33 am

  • Diontae Johnson not listed on final injury report
    Diontae Johnson was removed from Pittsburgh's Week 7 injury report.

    Advice: Steelers are hoping to have Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster available for a full game for the first time since Chase Claypool's emergence. With James Washington still active as the team's go-to deep threat, the fallout of Pittsburgh's expanded target tree is something worth monitoring on Sunday. Both Claypool and Johnson remain fantasy players' safest options with Smith-Schuster falling in line as a FLEX play. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:45 am

  • Aaron Jones DNP Friday, will be on injury report
    Packers RB Aaron Jones did not practice Friday and will be on the team's final Week 7 injury report. 

    Advice: Jones appearing on the week's final injury report after not being listed with an injury this week is a bad sign for his availability against the Texans. RB Tyler Ervin (wrist) is still being held out of practice, meaning Jamaal Williams could be in for a considerable workload against Houston. Rookie RB AJ Dillon would presumably chip in too. Williams should be added in all leagues.  Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:26 am

  • Austin Hooper (appendicitis) could miss Week 8 too
    Browns TE Austin Hooper (appendicitis) could miss the team's Week 8 game against the Raiders as well as Week 7 against the Bengals. 

    Advice: Hooper was been declared out for this week after undergoing surgery for appendicitis today. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Hooper is no sure thing for the team's Week 8 game against Vegas. David Njoku has run more pass routes than Harrison Bryant since Njoku returned to the Browns' lineup two week ago, and has one more target than Bryant over that stretch. We could see a fairly even split between Bryant and Njoku with Hooper out, but Njoku makes for the slightly more preferable waiver wire add for fantasy players in deep leagues and tight end premium formats.  Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:13 am

    Advice: Mixon played through his foot injury in the second half of Week 6. It didn't respond to treatment this week and the Bengals held him out of practice. Mixon will miss at least one game and could potentially be looking at a multi-week absence. Gio Bernard will start for Mixon, with Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams backing him up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:03 am

    Advice: He's logged two full practices after being inactive last week against Green Bay. Fournette for now is nothing more than a bench stash in 12 and 14-team leagues. Ronald Jones has dominated snaps and backfield touches of late.

    Advice: Thomas apparently tweaked a hamstring this week. His Week 7 status is now in doubt. Thomas, who missed a month with a high ankle sprain, missed the Saints' Week 5 game after he punched a teammate. If Thomas drafters are still in the playoff hunt, they might have to make it another week before getting their first rounder back.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:15 pm

    Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) did not practice Thursday. 

    Advice: Mixon didn't practice Wednesday either, meaning his Friday status will likely determine his availability against the Browns. Mixon had his usual workhorse role before leaving last week's game against the Colts. Gio Bernard would take over as the team's primary ball carrier if Mixon is out. Bernard would be a high-end RB3 in Week 7 against Cleveland, with more value in PPR formats.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:09 am

  • Michael Thomas now dealing with hamstring injury
    Saints WR Michael Thomas tweaked his hamstring in practice.

    Advice: NFL Network's Tom Pelissero said Thomas is considered a "fast healer," so there remains some hope he can play this week against Carolina. Thomas has missed the past month with a high ankle sprain he suffered on opening day against the Bucs. He was then held out of the Saints' Week 5 game after punching a teammate. An excellent 2020 continues for the Saints' No. 1 receiver. If he's inactive against the Panthers, Emmanuel Sanders and Tre'Quan Smith will retain some fantasy usefulness.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:19 am

    Advice: Jones played through his hamstring issue last week against Minnesota, exploding for 8-137-2 on 10 targets in the Falcons' first win.

  • Schefter: SEA, others interested in Antonio Brown
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Seahawks and "other teams" are interested in signing suspended free agent Antonio Brown.

    Advice: A.B. is finalizing his eight-week suspension to open the season, but with that coming to a close in 12 days, teams are starting to make some calls to the 32-year-old. The Seahawks have always been linked closest to Brown dating back to the summer. According to Schefter, Seattle is "positioned to make a push to sign" Brown. His addition would likely push David Moore out of three-wide sets and have an effect on DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:00 pm

  • Diontae Johnson (back) practicing fully for Week 7
    Diontae Johnson (back) is practicing in full for Week 7 against the Titans.

    Advice: With Johnson now healthy, it will be very interesting to see how the Steelers divvy up the receiver snaps between he, JuJu Smith-Schuster, stud rookie Chase Claypool, and James Washington. It was Washington who led the team in targets last week with Johnson sidelined. JuJu has easily been the least explosive of the group through six weeks, but Johnson also hasn't been able to stay healthy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:40 pm

With the Eagles playing on Thursday night, Sanders has a few extra days to get ready for Week 8. It's possible Philly holds out Sanders through their Week 9 bye. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:51 am

  • Tomlin: Diontae (back) will practice Wednesday
    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Diontae Johnson (back) will be on the field when the team returns to practice Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a significant development since Johnson had previously taken Wednesdays off to recover from past injuries. He's clearly trending in the right direction to return to the field against the Titans. Johnson has yet to play a full game since Chase Claypool was thrust into the lineup, but the two are expected to remain afloat ahead of JuJu Smith-Schuster even when all three are (finally) on the field together. This situation could become a mess for fantasy if James Washington also keeps involved. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:41 am

  • Eagles expect Miles Sanders (knee) to sit Thursday
    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Miles Sanders (knee) is not expected to play in Week 7 against the Giants.

    Advice: Sanders is only expected to miss "1-2 weeks," making him questionable for the team's Week 8 game against the Cowboys. Boston Scott out-snapped (38 to 25) and out-touched (11 to 8) Corey Clement minus Sanders in Week 1 but neither offered much in terms of production. Scott is a viable filler for those struggling to fill spots over the bye weeks even if he is projected to split touches with Clement (and perhaps Jason Huntley, too). Both will be mentioned in John Daigle's Waiver Wire column on Tuesday.  Rotoworld.com Oct 19, 10:28 am

  • Aaron Jones totals 41 yards, TD in Week 6 loss
    Aaron Jones rushed 10 times for 15 yards and one score, catching 3-of-5 targets for 26 yards in Green Bay's Week 6 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Advice: Jones' lone highlight was his one-yard touchdown run up the gut after Aaron Rodgers' quarterback sneak was negated. The Packers were shut down on the ground despite Vita Vea's absence as Jones merely averaged 1.5 yards per carry while the starters were still on the field. Fantasy player should simply forget this one and go back to Jones as a strong RB1 in Week 7 against Houston's flimsy front-seven. Rotoworld.com Oct 18, 6:13 pm

    Advice: Zach Ertz (ankle) also needs an MRI. Sanders is the "greater concern" after his knee bent at the end of a 74-yard run in the second half. Even if Sanders avoids structural damage, it's going to be hard for him to get cleared with the Eagles playing on Thursday night in Week 7. Boston Scott will be the Eagles' lead back if Sanders misses time.

    Joe Mixon rushed 18 times for 54 yards and one score, catching 2-of-3 targets for 15 receiving yards in Cincinnati's Week 6 loss to the Colts.

    Advice: Mixon actually exited for a short period in the first half but was able to return after the intermission. His lone touchdown was set up by Tee Higgins' (6/125) 67-yard catch along the sideline in the second quarter. WIth 47 carries in his last three starts, Mixon's role (assuming he's healthy in Week 7) remains that of a workhorse RB1.

  • Sanders rushes for 118, leaves with knee injury
    Miles Sanders rushed nine times for 118 yards in the Eagles' Week 6 loss to the Ravens, adding one reception for -6 yards. 

    Advice: For the second straight week, Sanders got most of his rushing yardage on a single carry, busting off a 74-yard run that ended with a fumble into the end zone; J.J. Acega-Whiteside recovered the ball for a touchdown. Sanders had an ugly touchdown drop just before his big run -- he was unable to adjust his body after turning the wrong way in pursuit of the ball. Sanders would be a low-end RB1 next week against the Giants if he gets the green light to play through the knee injury.  Rotoworld.com Oct 18, 2:50 pm

    Advice: Hooper led the Browns in targets, catches, and yards on a day they scored just seven points and Baker Mayfield was benched late in the game while playing through injury. Hooper is starting to turn it on a bit with 15 catches over the last three games on 23 targets. He's trying to throw himself back into the TE1 mix ahead of a Week 7 date with the Bengals.

    Advice: He was targeted twice by Cam Newton.

  • Julio Jones (8-137-2) brings life to ATL offense
    Julio Jones caught 8-of-10 targets for 137 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 6 win over the Vikings.

    Advice: It's safe to say Jones was truly healthy for this one. He was as explosive as always, showing off big-play potential on his two touchdowns. His first was a 20-yard strike and his second was a 40-yard run-and-catch on a broken 4th-down play. Jones' reinjury risk is the only thing separating him from the other elite fantasy receivers. With Atlanta expected to play little defense and find themselves in shootouts, Jones has a top-three ceiling for the rest of the season. Hopefully his hamstring injury is behind him. The Detroit Lions are Jones' next victim. Rotoworld.com Oct 18, 1:04 pm
