Player Notes

  • Robert Tonyan (ankle) absent for Packers Wednesday
    Robert Tonyan (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Tonyan played a season-low 59% of the snaps against the Bucs after limping off in the second quarter. He eventually returned for the second half, but Tonyan's numbers were forgettable with 3-25-0 on four targets on a day Aaron Rodgers was deleted by Tampa's stifling defense. Tonyan will be a TE1 if he suits up this week against Houston. Today, 2:01 pm

  • Jonnu Smith (ankle) gets in limited practice Wed.
    Jonnu Smith (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: After Smith was forced from Week 6 against the Texans and didn't return, it was reported his ankle sprain was minor. Starting the week off with a limited practice is a good sign for his Week 7 availability against the Steelers, but he's unlikely to be at 100 percent. Today, 1:38 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Dawson Knox (calf) DNP Wednesday
    Dawson Knox (calf) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: He left Week 5 with the injury and missed Week 6. The sophomore isn't a fantasy option. Today, 12:56 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Logan Thomas (neck) misses practice on Wednesday
    Logan Thomas (neck) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: It's the first we've heard of a neck issue for Thomas. A popular positive regression candidate early in the year, Thomas simply plays in too bad of an offense despite seeing heavy snaps and routes. He's drawn exactly four targets in three straight games but did score his first touchdown since Week 1 last Sunday in a loss to the Giants. Today, 10:42 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Titans activate MyCole Pruitt from COVID list
    Titans activated TE MyCole Pruitt from the reserve/COVID-19 list. 

    Advice: Pruitt spent 12 days on the coronavirus list. Although Jonnu Smith is currently battling an ankle injury, H-back Pruitt still does not project for more than a catch or two per week. Yesterday, 1:08 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Dalton Schultz catches four passes in loss to ARZ
    Dalton Schultz caught 4-of-5 targets for 35 yards in the Cowboys' Week 6 loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: It's been a forgettable two weeks in the box score for Schultz in the aftermath of the Dak Prescott broken ankle. This offense can no longer support four or five weapons, and Schultz is that fourth or fifth option. He'll be a TE2 for Week 7 against Washington. Monday, 9:05 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Travis Kelce scores twice in Week 6 win over Bills
    Travis Kelce caught 5-of-7 targets for 65 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 6 win over the Bills.

    Advice: Kelce now has five scores on the year, tied for first in the entire league. He did cough up a crucial fumble before halftime that cost Kansas City a shot at a field goal. It also gave Tyler Bass a chance at putting three points on the board for Buffalo but he couldn't connect. Kelce led the Chiefs in targets and outside of a single fumble, had another tremendous outing. Being the top receiving option for Patrick Mahomes gives him a higher weekly touchdown projection than any other tight end. He remains in contention with George Kittle for the title of TE1 overall in fantasy. Monday, 5:01 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Njoku still looking to be traded before deadline's Mary Kay Cabot reports Browns TE David Njoku is still looking to be traded before the November 3 deadline.

    Advice: Njoku initially asked to be dealt on July 3, rescinded that request prior to camp, and has since changed his tune again in looking for a new home prior to the November 3 trade deadline. The Browns have yet to show any interest in trading the 24-year-old but, as Cabot notes, that could change with "an offer they can't refuse." Njoku has been linked to the Patriots as a potential destination dating back to August. Monday, 1:31 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Zach Ertz (ankle) expected to miss 3-4 weeks
    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Zach Ertz (ankle) is expected to miss "3-4 weeks."

    Advice: Ertz will presumably be moved to injured reserve in the coming days with a high-ankle sprain. The Eagles will also be short Miles Sanders (knee) for 1-2 weeks but are expected to get back both DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Dallas Goedert (ankle) Thursday night. Ertz, who had totaled 24/178/1 and 3.9 yards per target through six games, can be universally dropped across re-draft leagues. Monday, 10:29 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Jimmy Graham sees 8 targets in Week 6 win
    Jimmy Graham caught 5-of-8 targets for 34 yards in the Bears' Week 6 win over the Panthers.

    Advice: Graham was on the field for 68 percent of the Bears' snaps this week and was second on the team in targets, only behind clear No. 1 option Allen Robinson. The tight end has recorded 28 targets over the last four games, which also coincides with Nick Foles' entry into the lineup. Graham is a fringe top 15 tight end based on that volume alone. Monday, 10:09 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Tyler Higbee leads Rams in Week 6 receiving
    Tyler Higbee caught 3-of-4 targets for 56 yards in Week 6 against the 49ers.

    Advice: Higbee had a larger role after he was held to two catches last week. He led the Rams in receiving on a night Jared Goff threw for under 200 yards. Higbee's 10% target share was still low, but this was his best game since going off for three touchdowns against the Eagles. Sunday, 9:14 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • George Kittle over 100 yards, TD in 49ers' win
    George Kittle caught 7-of-10 targets for 109 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Rams.

    Advice: Kittle had the play of the night, scoring on a 44-yard pass from Jimmy Garoppolo down the seams. He broke a tackle on a slant and went untouched into the end-zone. This was a bounce back for Kittle, who was held to 44 yards by the Dolphins last week. Kittle will be one of the top tight end plays for a matchup with the Patriots in Week 7. Sunday, 9:11 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Chris Herndon not targeted in loss to Miami
    Chris Herndon wasn't targeted in the Jets' Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

    Advice: Ryan Griffin caught 2-of-3 targets for 17 yards. Herndon has been a colossal 2020 bust after again being hyped all summer. He's not on the fantasy radar at the moment. Sunday, 5:32 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Gesicki posts a goose egg on two targets vs. Jets
    Mike Gesicki failed to catch either of his two targets in the Dolphins' Week 6 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Meanwhile, both Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe caught four-yard touchdowns. Gesicki has a pair of big games to his name this season, but has four duds under his belt, too. He's been extremely frustrating considering the number of routes he's run through six weeks. Gesicki gets a bye before a Week 8 date with the Rams. Sunday, 5:27 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Gronk shakes off dust for 5/78/1 against Packers
    Rob Gronkowski caught 5-of-8 targets for 78 yards and one score in Tampa Bay's Week 6 win over the Packers.

    Advice: His touchdown was his first with the Buccaneers. Gronkowski rekindled an old flame with Tom Brady, finishing with a team-high eight targets (28.5% share). The 31-year-old has now seen at least six targets in three of his last four starts and admittedly looked like his old self in consistently boxing out Green Bay's linebackers and finding holes in the zone on Sunday. With O.J. Howard (torn ACL) done for the year, Gronk remains a TE2 with touchdown upside — especially if he continues play himself into game shape. Fantasy players can go back to him with confidence in Week 7 against Las Vegas. Sunday, 4:34 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Cole Kmet scores first NFL touchdown in Week 6
    Bears TE Cole Kmet caught 2-of-2 targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 6 win over the Panthers. 

    Advice: This was Kmet's first NFL touchdown, as the No. 43 overall pick has made more of an impact in the running game than passing game through six weeks. Until Matt Nagy shows more of a willingness to involve Kmet, he will not be in the fantasy conversation despite the total lack of options at the position this season. Sunday, 3:49 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Anthony Firkser explodes for career day vs. Texans
    Anthony Firkser caught 8-of-9 targets for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Texans. 

    Advice: With Jonnu Smith lost early to an ankle injury, fourth-year UDFA Firkser exploded for a career day. Both his catch and yardage totals more than doubled his previous personal bests. Smith's injury did not have the looks of a season-ender, though he is probably on the wrong side of questionable for Week 7 vs. the Steelers. Firkser will have some TE2 appeal if Smith can't go. Sunday, 3:33 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Eagles TE Jason Croom catches TD vs. Ravens
    Jason Croom caught his lone target for a three-yard touchdown in the Eagles' Week 6 loss to the Ravens. 

    Advice: The former Bills tight end got some second half playing time with Zach Ertz sidelined by a foot injury. He found himself wide open on the end zone and made the most of his one target. If Ertz can't play Thursday against the Giants, it would most likely be Richard Rodgers who operates the team's top tight end. The Eagles use a lot of two-tight end sets, however, meaning Croom will probably be on the field quite a bit if Ertz and Dallas Goedert are out in Week 7. Sunday, 3:28 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Darren Fells goes for 6/85/1 in Akins' absence
    Darren Fells caught 6-of-7 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 6 loss to the Titans. 

    Advice: With Jordan Akins sidelined, Fells posted season highs across the board. His third touchdown was his second in as many games. If Akins remains sidelined for Week 7 against the Packers, Fells will offer legitimate TE2 appeal. If Akins returns, Fells will not be a recommended streamer. Sunday, 3:24 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • T.J. Hockenson goes 2/17/1 versus Jaguars
    T.J. Hockenson caught 2-of-5 targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' Week 6 win over the Jaguars. 

    Advice: It's the second straight week Hockenson has caught only two passes for sub-20 yards, though he managed to score both times out. Hockenson hasn't reached five catches since Week 1, while his season high for yardage is 62. The floor has proven acceptable in an awful year for the tight end position, but Hockenson needs to demonstrate more ceiling. Perhaps he will finally do so against the Falcons' bottom-barrel defense in Week 7. Sunday, 3:10 pm
