Player Notes

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Justin Fields collapses vs. TB: 5 turnovers, 0 TDs
    Justin Fields completed 22-of-32 passes for 184 yards, three interceptions, and two fumbles in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Bucs, adding eight rushes for 38 yards. 

    Advice: Fields made a handful of mind-numbing throws against a soft Bucs defense that had given up solid fantasy days to most QBs they've faced in 2021. Nearly every time Fields had a clean pocket and stepped into a throw, the ball sailed clear over his pass catcher's head -- sometimes into the arms of an awaiting Bucs defender. Head coach Matt Nagy continues to treat Fields as a pure pocket passer, refusing to mix in designed runs for the speedy signal caller. Chicago's offense is a fantasy football blackhole right now with little hope of offering reliable production for any of its main players. Fields will barely be startable in superflex formats next week against the 49ers.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 4:49 pm

  • Jalen Hurts throws two TDs in loss to the Raiders
    Jalen Hurts completed 18-of-34 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' 22-33, Week 7 loss to the Raiders, adding 13 carries for 61 yards.

    Advice: Hurts scored on the Eagles' opening drive of the game and didn't make it back to the end zone until the contest was nearly decided. His fourth-quarter touchdown throw to Jalen Reagor got him over 20 fantasy points for the seventh time this year. He is the only quarterback to hit 20 points in every game of the 2021 season. As a passer, it was an up-and-down night for Hurts. He missed a number of valuable deep throws that could have kept Philly in the game a bit longer. His value as a fantasy option ultimately comes down to his legs. His consistent rushing production locks him into QB1 numbers every week. He'll be a top-five fantasy quarterback in his Week 8 date with the Lions. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 4:46 pm

  • Davis Mills averages 4.2 YPA in loss to Cardinals
    Davis Mills completed 23-of-32 passes for 135 yards in the Texans' 31-5, Week 7 loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: He absorbed two sacks, lost one fumble, and led zero touchdown drives after the Texans jumped out to a 5-0 lead. Mills averaged a pitiful 4.2 yards per attempt, and fellow rookie WR Nico Collins was the team's leading receiver with 28 yards on two grabs. Mills brings up the rear of the fantasy quarterback rankings every week. The team is still waiting for Tyrod Taylor to get healthy. The Texans host the 6-1 Rams in Week 8.

  • Tom Brady has four easy TDs in Week 7 win
    Tom Brady completed 20-of-36 for 211 yards and four touchdowns in the Bucs' 38-3 Week 7 win against the Bears. 

    Advice: Brady lamented after the game that Tampa "left a lot of points out there." And he wasn't wrong, as Chicago had no answer for the Bucs' pass-heavy offense slicing and dicing the Bears' secondary throughout the game. The Bucs proved again that they'll keep passing no matter the game script -- a massive fantasy boon for Brady and his main pass catchers. Brady now leads the league with 21 passing scores through seven weeks and is on pace for 51 touchdowns at the tender age of 44. He'll be a top-7 QB option next week against New Orleans.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 4:29 pm

  • Stafford posts turnover-free 334/3 vs. Lions
    Matthew Stafford completed 28-of-41 passes for 334 yards and three touchdowns in the Rams' 28-19, Week 7 win over the Lions. 

    Advice: In the "revenge bowl" between Stafford and Jared Goff, it was Stafford who unsurprisingly took the belt, though the Lions made it much more difficult than expected with a cavalcade of trick plays and aggressive decisions. Stafford responded by keeping his cool and relentlessly targeting Cooper Kupp, finding fantasy's WR1 overall thus far for 10/156/2. Stafford also endured what seems to be his weekly ribs shot to remain in the game. Today was a layup and Week 8 will be another, albeit this time on the road as the Rams travel to Houston. The Texans got decked by Kyler Murray on Sunday and have no resistance to offer.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 4:29 pm

  • Goff's late end zone INT dooms revenge bid in LA
    Jared Goff completed 22-of-36 passes for 268 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Lions' 28-19, Week 7 loss to the Rams. 

    Advice: On a day where the Lions emptied out their bag of tricks — they converted two fake punts and recovered a first quarter onside kick — Goff reminded the Rams why they traded him, throwing what proved to be a game-sealing end zone interception with 4:53 remaining. It killed a marathon Lions drive, one that would have culminated with a Lions lead had they found the end zone. Goff was hit as he threw and let Jalen Ramsey run T.J. Hockenson's route for him. Goff added another pick for good measure with the Lions out of timeouts and trailing 28-19 with 0:32 remaining. Ultimately, it was a decent day for a quarterback without weapons, though D'Andre Swift did all of the work on the duo's 63-yard screen score in the opening frame. The Lions know Goff is not their future, but they lack better options for the present. Seeing as they are 0-7, it doesn't hold water that they would need to bench Goff to tank for better draft position. The Eagles are on deck for Week 8.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 4:22 pm

  • Kyler sleep-walks to 261/3 in easy win over Texans
    Kyler Murray completed 20-of-28 passes for 261 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Cardinals' 31-5, Week 7 win over the Texans.

    Advice: Houston briefly held a 5-0 lead after Murray took a sack in the end zone in the first quarter, but Arizona went on to put up 31 unanswered points as the Cardinals found their stride after a slow start. Murray had to go to the blue medical tent on the sideline a couple times after absorbing some hits, but he checked out fine every time and was eventually rested with a few minutes to play in the fourth quarter. Murray's touchdown passes were one- and five-yard hookups with DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk in the second quarter before he found new TE Zach Ertz wide open for a 47-yard score in the third frame. Murray only rushed for 10 yards on six scampers. He gets the Packers on a short week this upcoming Thursday night. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 4:20 pm

  • Carr completes 91-percent of his passes vs. Philly
    Derek Carr completed 31-of-34 passes for 323 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Raiders 33-22, Week 7 win over the Eagles. 

    Advice: It was the closest thing to a flawless performance you'll see in the NFL. Even Carr's one interception was the result of Jalen Richard tipping it into the hands of a defender. Carr eviscerated the Eagles despite being down his top pass-catcher, Darren Waller, for this game as well. He now has at least 300 passing yards in all but two games and a pair of touchdowns in every game but one. Carr is playing the best football of his career and the only thing holding him back from being an elite fantasy option is his lack of rushing production. He'll project as a high-end QB2 with QB1 upside after returning from the Raiders' bye week to face the Giants in Week 9.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 4:16 pm

  • P.J. Walker closes after Sam Darnold gets benched
    P.J. Walker completed 3-of-14 passes for 33 yards in the Panthers' 3-25, Week 7 loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Sam Darnold was benched early in the fourth quarter, giving Walker his first regular-season snaps since Week 17 of last year. He looked worse than Darnold and Panthers coach Matt Rhule has already said that Darnold remains the team's starter. With five interceptions and just one passing touchdown in his career, Walker would be a considerable downgrade from Darnold. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 3:44 pm

  • Rhule: Darnold is 'our quarterback moving forward'
    Panthers coach Matt Rhule said Sam Darnold is "our quarterback moving forward."

    Advice: Rhule benched Darnold in the fourth quarter of an embarrassing loss to the Giants. The Panthers scored three points and totaled 173 yards of offense. P.J. Walker stepped in for Darnold but somehow looked worse, completing 3-of-14 passes for 33 yards. Despite Darnold's struggles, he is the best option they currently have on the roster. Carolina gets the Falcons next week. Atlanta entered Week 7 ranked 31st in points allowed per game. Darnold will be a volatile QB2 in the easy matchup.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 2:43 pm

  • Tua Tagovailoa throws for four touchdowns in loss
    Tua Tagovailoa completed 32-of-40 passes for 291 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in the Dolphins' 30-28, Week 7 loss to the Falcons, adding four rushes for 29 additional yards. 

    Advice: With the four-score performance, Tagovailoa more than doubled his season touchdown total, though he literally doubled his interception total. Pick No. 1 was an awful end zone giveaway where Durham Smythe had no window to make the catch in traffic. No. 2 was even more unforgivable. Instead of just accepting a fourth quarter sack, Tagovailoa forced the ball up as he was going down and LB Foysade Oluokun nearly returned it for a touchdown. When he wasn't giving the ball away, Tagovailoa did just fine dinking and dunking it, but big plays were in short supply. Only one of Tagovailoa's completions went for more than 20 yards, and it was a 27-yarder to Mike Gesicki. Deshaun Watson trade rumors will continue to swirl. The Dolphins visit the Bills next Sunday, which is two days before the trade deadline.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 2:10 pm

  • Matt Ryan has two-touchdown day in Miami
    Matt Ryan completed 25-of-40 passes for 336 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Falcons' 30-28, Week 7 win over the Dolphins. 

    Advice: Leaning on Kyle Pitts for chunk gains — five of the rookie's seven grabs went for 20-plus yards — Ryan nearly equalled his pre-bye performance in London for his best outing of the season. His scores went for five yards to Calvin Ridley and 49 to Russell Gage, who ran right by Jevon Holland. Ryan did lose a fumble on an ill-fated fourth quarter scramble, though his "interception" was actually a catch that Ridley simply let get ripped away. Ridley has remained an issue for Ryan, as he can't get his alpha wideout going. Hopefully that changes in Week 8 against the collapsing Panthers.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 2:02 pm

  • Zach Wilson may have injured PCL, getting an MRI
    Zach Wilson will get an MRI after suffering a knee injury against the Patriots.

    Advice: Wilson's injury is believed to be to his PCL, and he will likely miss some time. The MRI will help determine how long he will be out. Wilson completed 6-of-10 passes for 51 yards in the Jets' 54-13, Week 7 loss to the Patriots. Wilson will a very low end QB2 when he eventually returns, in a rookie year that is beginning to look like a worst case scenario for Wilson and the Jets.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 2:00 pm

  • Heinicke salvages loss with 95 rushing yards
    Taylor Heinicke completed 25-of-37 passes for 268 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Washington's 24-10 Week 7 loss to Green Bay.

    Advice: Heinicke also scrambled for 95 yards on the ground, salvaging what otherwise would have looked like a lukewarm performance in the box score. He nearly added a one-yard rushing touchdown to his final line but, upon review, was (questionably) called down at the goal line for a turnover on downs. Heinicke also threw a miserable pick in the back of the end zone to open the fourth quarter. Having come up short of 275 yards with four total interceptions in his last three starts, Heinicke can undoubtedly feel Kyle Allen breathing down his neck. A change under center ahead of Week 8 cannot be ruled out. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 1:47 pm

  • Panthers now 'expected to be involved' on Watson
    Citing "league and team sources," Joe Person of The Athletic reports the Panthers are expected to be involved in trade discussions for Deshaun Watson.

    Advice: The Dolphins have been the team most connected to Watson ahead of the November 2 trade deadline, but with Sam Darnold reverting to his Jets form the last few weeks before ultimately being benched after producing three points against the Giants in Week 7, the Panthers now see a need to look past Darnold for their quarterback of the present and future. Panthers GM Scott Fitterer has already shown he's not scared to make trades. Pitting the Dolphins and Panthers against each other in a bidding war would only be good news for the Texans.

  • Mahomes feels 'fine' after taking big hit in loss
    Patrick Mahomes said he feels "fine" after exiting in the fourth quarter of the Week 7 loss to the Titans.

    Advice: Mahomes was checked for a concussion but apparently passed the tests and was able to stay on the sideline for the final minutes of the Chiefs' loss. Already down 27-3 at the time of the big hit he took, the Chiefs were just protecting Mahomes from himself in a game that was already over. Look for Mahomes to be under center next week against the Giants. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 1:40 pm

  • Daniel Jones (203 yards, 1 TD) does little in win
    Daniel Jones completed 23-of-33 passes for 203 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' 25-3, Week 7 win over the Panthers.

    Advice: Jones tacked on 28 yards as a runner. The Panthers were unable to mount a functional offense and didn't push New York to keep the gas pedal down. It was an uneventful day for the young passer until the Giants dialed up a trick play that saw Dante Pettis throwing a back-shoulder pass to Jones, who reeled in the toss with one hand. Jones has just one game with over 300 passing yards or multiple touchdowns through the air but does get a juicy matchup with the Chiefs next week. Normally a high-end QB2, Jones will jump into the back-half of the QB1 ranks versus Kansas City.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 1:30 pm
