Player Notes

  • Mo Alie-Cox scores TD in second straight
    Mo Alie-Cox caught all three of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the 49ers.

    Advice: It's the second straight game Alie-Cox has found the end-zone. He has at least 50 yards or a touchdown the last four weeks and has done enough to remain a low-end TE1/high-end TE2. Alie-Cox has a shy away Week 8 matchup with a Titans secondary that's allowed the second-fewest points to opposing tight ends.

  • Colts' Zach Pascal: Targeted six times vs 49ers
    Zach Pascal caught 3-of-6 targets for 14 yards in Week 7 against the 49ers.

    Advice: Pascal led the Colts in targets without T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell (IR). That didn't amount to much in a game Carson Wentz threw for 150 yards. Pascal hasn't had over 50 yards in any game and should see his target share decline if Hilton returns in Week 8.

  • Michael Pittman posts 4/105/1 line in win
    Michael Pittman caught all four of his targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 7 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Pittman had a 57-yard catch that set up the Colts’ first scoring drive. He went over the top on a 28-yard fade over 49ers CB Dre Kirkpatrick for his touchdown, sealing the game for the Colts late in the fourth quarter. Pittman also drew a DPI in the end-zone and another one that placed the Colts inside the five-yard line. The four targets were behind Zach Pascal (6), but Pittman has continued to look like a No. 1 receiver this year with T.Y. Hilton sidelined. Pittman's red-zone role shouldn't take much of a hit even if Hilton returns in Week 8. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:41 pm

  • 49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Posts another dud in Week 7
    Brandon Aiyuk was held to one catch for six yards in Week 7 against the Colts. 

    Advice: Aiyuk took another step back after posting his second most yards and catches of the season before the 49ers' Week 6 bye. The second-year wideout has just eight targets over the last three weeks and is still under 100 yards on the season. Even if the 49ers make the move to Trey Lance next week, Aiyuk shouldn't be in fantasy lineups. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:32 pm

  • Deebo Samuel posts third 100-yard game
    Deebo Samuel caught 7-of-11 targets for 100 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Colts.

    Advice: The yards and targets were both team highs. That's nothing new for Samuel, who accounted for 43% of the 49ers’ receiving yards going into Sunday night. Jimmy Garoppolo didn't even attempt to throw it to anyone else, with fill-in TE Charlie Woerner finishing as the team's second leading receiver. Samuel has three 100 yard games and double digit targets in 4-of-7 weeks. He gets a matchup with Chicago in Week 8.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:26 pm

  • 49ers' Trey Sermon: Zero snaps in Week 7 loss
    Trey Sermon was held without a carry in Week 7 against the Colts.

    Advice: Sermon didn't see the field in JaMycal Hasty's return. With Elijah Mitchell coming off an 100-yard game and Jeff Wilson close to being activated from PUP, Sermon is just a deep league stash as the early-down hedge to the 49ers' backfield. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm

  • JaMycal Hasty plays third-down role in return
    JaMycal Hasty caught 3-of-6 targets for 15 yards in Week 7 against the Colts. 

    Advice: Hasty was making his first appearance since going on IR in Week 2. He was used as a pass game complement to Elijah Mitchell, who led the backfield with 18 carries. Hasty played on all third downs, leading to a 34% snap share. There's some value to Hasty's role when the 49ers are in negative game script, but his snaps are likely going to take a hit when Jeff Wilson (knee, PUP) returns. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:15 pm

  • Elijah Mitchell rebounds with 107 yards, TD
    Elijah Mitchell rushed 18 times for 107 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Colts.

    Advice: Mitchell rushed for 57 of his yards and a touchdown on the opening drive of the game. The 49ers featured him early, with nine first-half carries. Mitchell dominated the backfield, getting 66% of snaps, and only leaving the field on third downs for JaMycal Hasty. This was a needed rebound from Mitchell after he was held under 50 yards the previous two games. Jeff Wilson (knee) is nearing a return from the PUP list, but Mitchell looks set to hold down the 49ers' lead back role for at least the next couple weeks.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:09 pm

  • Nyheim Hines gets eight carries in win
    Nyheim Hines rushed eight times for 14 yards in Week 7 against the 49ers.

    Advice: His only catch went for negative yards. Hines was targeted just three times in the pass game. The carries were the most since Week 1 for Hines. With Jonathan Taylor losing a fumble, the Colts used Hines to close out the game. Hines hasn't totaled over 50 yards in four straight weeks. He's off the fantasy radar for a Week 8 matchup against the Titans. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm

  • Taylor over 100 yards, scores in fourth straight
    Jonathan Taylor had 18 carries for 107 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 7 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: It's the second straight 100-yard game for Taylor, who has went over the century mark three of the last four weeks. Taylor fumbled on his first carry of the game, but the Colts stuck with him, giving him a 70% snap share. His touchdown came inside the five-yard line, something Taylor's struggled with despite leading the league in carries from there. Taylor has six touchdowns over the last month after going scoreless in the first three weeks. The Colts should stay run heavy behind Taylor with a matchup against Derrick Henry and the Titans in Week 8. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:53 pm

  • Jimmy Garoppolo has three turnovers in loss
    Jimmy Garoppolo completed 16-of-27 passes for 181 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Colts.

    Advice: Garoppolo also lost a fumble. One of his interceptions was inches from being returned for a touchdown. It was a sloppy night all around for the 49ers, who had seven penalties and converted just one third down. Garoppolo managed to find Deebo Samuel, who he targeted a team-high 11 times, for his only touchdown. His night ended on a duck of an interception, possibly his last throw as the 49ers starter. San Francisco could turn back to Trey Lance (knee) in Week 8 if Lance gets cleared to play. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:39 pm

  • Wentz totals three TDs in SNF win over 49ers
    Carson Wentz completed 17-of-26 passes for 150 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' Week 7 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Wentz added 23 yards on four carries, scoring on a goal-line run in the second quarter. His touchdowns were a red-zone throw to TE Mo Alie-Cox and a fade to Michael Pittman from 28 yards out. Wentz avoided throwing an interception for the fifth straight game but was charged with a fumble that was really a desperation pick trying to avoid a sack. Outside of that, this was another step forward for Wentz, who has won three of the last four games. The Colts get a matchup with the division-leading Titans in Week 8.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:31 pm

  • Cobb sees four targets in Packers' Week 7 win
    Randall Cobb caught 3-of-4 targets for 22 yards in Green Bay's Week 7 win over the Football Team.

    Advice: Cobb bounced back as a possession receiver following his egg of a performance against the Bears, finishing fifth on the team in targets behind Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, Robert Tonyan, and Aaron Jones. With the emergence of Lazard the past two weeks, Cobb can stay glued to waivers even in deeper leagues. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:28 pm

  • Dyami Brown suffers injury in first half, exits
    Washington WR Dyami Brown suffered a knee injury in Week 7 against the Packers.

    Advice: Brown was not targeted before suffering a knee injury in the first quarter of Sunday's loss. He'll return to the lineup in two-wide sets if cleared ahead of Washington's Week 8 matchup against Denver. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:24 pm

  • Adam Humphries totals 36 yards in Week 7 loss
    Adam Humphries caught 3-of-4 targets for 36 yards in Washington's Week 7 loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Humphries benefitted after Dyami Brown exited in the first half with a leg injury. The former's fantasy viability for 14-team leagues will come down to the statuses of Cam Sims, Curtis Samuel, and Brown prior to Week 8 against Denver. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:21 pm

  • Seals-Jones sees seven targets in Week 7 loss
    Ricky Seals-Jones caught 6-of-7 targets for 51 yards in Washington's Week 7 loss to Green Bay.

    Advice: RSJ's targets and receiving yards finished second on the team behind Terry McLaurin's, an encouraging sign after Seals-Jones was on the team's injury report with a bruised quad throughout the week. An every-down option with at least six targets the past three games, it's possible Logan Thomas (hamstring) forces Seals-Jones back to the bench when eligible to return in Week 8. It's something to monitor before Washington's matchup against Denver as whoever starts between the two will qualify as a usage-based high-end option. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:17 pm

  • J.D. McKissic sees six targets in Week 7 loss
    J.D. McKissic rushed four times for 22 yards, hauling in 4-of-6 targets for 34 yards in Washington's Week 7 loss to Green Bay.

    Advice: Antonio Gibson out-carried McKissic 14-4 but it was the latter who accrued six targets to Gibson's two, registering a double-digit target share for the fourth consecutive game (15.2% < 10.0% < 25.6% < 16.7%). With few reliable options to throw to around Terry McLaurin, McKissic has benefitted immensely with at least four targets in each of his last four starts. He'll remain a RB2 for PPR leagues in Week 8 against the Broncos. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:13 pm

  • Antonio Gibson out-touches J.D. McKissic 16-8
    Antonio Gibson rushed 14 times for 51 yards, catching both of his targets for five yards in Washington's Week 7 loss to Green Bay.

    Advice: Gibson out-touched J.D. McKissic 16-8, out-carrying the latter by a significant 14-4 margin. Even so, McKissic earned six targets to Gibson's two, registering a double-digit target share for the fourth consecutive game. Gibson was also encouragingly a shoestring tackle away from scoring a rushing touchdown at one point in the second half as he continues to fight through a fractured shin. He'll continue to rank as a low-end RB1 in Week 9 against Denver as his role in the receiving game remains stagnant. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:05 pm

  • Renfrow (7-58) leads LV in targets with Waller out
    Hunter Renfrow caught 7-of-8 targets for 58 yards in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Raiders.

    Advice: Renfrow could have had a bigger day but he was taken down at the one-yard line, setting up a Bryan Edwards touchdown on fourth down. With Darren Waller sidelined, Renfrow was the preferred target of Derek Carr and paced the team with eight targets. The Raiders are on a bye next week and Waller should be able to return in Week 9, so it's likely that Renfrow is demoted to a fantasy WR3/4 the next time we see him. If Waller remains sidelined, Renfrow will be a high-floor WR2 versus the Giants. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 6:46 pm

  • Rodgers throws three touchdowns in Week 7 win
    Aaron Rodgers completed 27-of-35 passes for 274 yards and three scores in Green Bay's 24-10 Week 7 win over Washington.

    Advice: The Packers cruised to a win due to their elite defensive effort on Sunday, holding Washington to just three total points on four red zone possessions. Rodgers took care of business through the air, finding Davante Adams (6/76/1) for a 17-yard score on Green Bay's first possession and, later on, connecting with both Allen Lazard (5/60/1) and Robert Tonyan (4/63/1) to pad their lead. It was also the sixth consecutive game Rodgers tossed multiple touchdowns in. He'll remain a low-end QB1 in the team's short (and uptempo) turnaround on Thursday night against the Cardinals.
