Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore paced the team in all receiving categories in a brutal 25-3 loss to the Giants. Moore hauled in six of 10 targets for 73 receiving yards, as he produced like elite wideouts do, even in a less-than-ideal environment. The 24-year-old has enjoyed a strong connection with quarterback Sam Darnold, who has peppered him with double-digit targets in five of seven games. Head coach Matt Rhule said that Darnold would be the starter moving forward, which is good news for Moore's value. Moore will be a strong start once again in Week 8 against the Falcons.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams finished with six catches for 76 yards during the win over Washington on Sunday. He also had a touchdown, pulling in a 17-yard throw from Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter. Although the 28-year-old has compiled just three trips to the end zone this year, his ability to rack up yards from week to week keeps him in the running as arguably the top wideout in the league. He remains a must-start for Thursday Night Football against an effective Cardinals defense, although his ceiling is a little lower.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Robby Anderson's struggles continued in a 25-3 loss to the Giants. Anderson saw nine targets, second behind D.J. Moore, but failed to produce anything with them in a rough all-around day. The speedy wideout certainly wasn't helped by quarterback Sam Darnold, who struggled mightily in the loss. Still, Anderson's career-low catch percentage makes him an unreliable fantasy option at the moment, even with a favorable matchup coming up against the Falcons.
The Washington Football Team defense gave up 24 points to quarterbackAaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on the way to a 24-10 loss on the road. With a fumble return and three sacks, the defense pulled out a decent game in terms of fantasy production. Moving forward, they still shouldn't be trusted as a starting lineup option for fantasy managers, considering they have been the league's worst secondary and have shown very little signs of improvement through seven weeks.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (ankle) won't return to Sunday's affair against the Las Vegas Raiders. The 24-year-old sustained an ankle injury after getting smothered by Denzel Perryman after a catch. He was evaluated on the sideline before he was subsequently carted back to the locker room, where his fate was sealed for the remainder of Week 7. Sanders hasn't lived up to expectations this season, although an extended absence would be unfortunate. Nonetheless, Kenneth Gainwell will likely be the primary beneficiary out of the backfield and should be gobbled up off waivers, especially if Sanders misses time moving ahead.
Carolina Panthers running back Chuba Hubbard carried the ball 12 times for 28 rushing yards and caught four passes for an additional 28 receiving yards in Sunday's loss to the Giants. Hubbard couldn't get much of anything going against New York, as he averaged just 2.3 yards per carry and had a long run of just 13 yards. It was a surprising step back for the rookie after he produced two straight strong fantasy efforts, though it didn't help that the Carolina offense as a whole laid an egg. Hubbard should have better days moving forward so long as he is starting, with a favorable matchup against Atlanta coming up in Week 8.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (chest) won't return to the Week 7 matchup against the Eagles. Jacobs sustained a chest injury and was initially listed as questionable to make it back. However, things don't look promising, so in the interim, Kenyan Drake should be the primary option out of the backfield for the rest of the contest. Fortunately, the team has an upcoming bye before returning for a Week 9 game against the Giants. Still, fantasy managers would benefit by picking up Drake if he is available.
Washington Football Team quarterback Taylor Heinicke completed 25-of-47 passes for 268 yards and a touchdown while adding 95 rushing yards to lead the team. His tremendous rushing stat line salvaged a potentially poor fantasy output, so fantasy managers can continue to expect his fantasy floor to be heightened because of his dual-threat ability. The Washington offense should start to click more as the team gets healthy, so Heinicke could continue to provide fantasy managers QB2 value. In Week 7, Washington travels to Denver, so the 28-year-old will remain a streaming option against a defense that has not played well as of late.
Washington Football Team wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught seven passes for 122 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers. McLaurin took advantage of a banged-up secondary and was able to grab a 40-yard touchdown pass from Taylor Heinicke. Considering the lack of weapons who are healthy in the Washington offense, the 26-year-old will continue to have WR1 value based on volume alone. In Week 7, he can be valued as a lower-end WR1 against the Denver Broncos who have a solid secondary which includes Patrick Surtain II, Kyle Fuller, and Justin Simmons. Considering his talent and role in the offense, McLaurin is a must-start player going forward.
Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo made all six of his kicks (three field goals), including the game-winner, as well as all three extra points in Sunday's win over Miami. Koo was busy on a day where the Falcons offense moved the ball well but couldn't cash in on their red-zone trips. The 27-year-old also nailed the game-winning kick to seal his team's second straight win. Koo is absolutely on fire, as he has yet to miss any of his kicks this season. He should remain a dependable option in a Week 8 divisional matchup with the Panthers.
Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson posted his second straight dud in Week 7, as he was held to just 56 total yards on 16 touches. The sophomore has been dealing with a shin injury, and it is clear that it has been holding him back the past couple of games. Considering his role in the passing game is limited, it is safe to say that Gibson should no longer be valued as an RB1 for fantasy managers moving forward. The 23-year-old should provide high-end RB2 numbers for the rest of the season as he figures to still get the bulk of carries out of the backfield.
Washington Football Team tight end Ricky Seals-Jones caught six passes for 51 yards in Sundays 24-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Seals-Jones was efficient as he caught six out of seven targets, as the only incompletion was a pass-attempt into the end zone. As long as Logan Thomas remains sidelined, the 26-year-old should continue to provide lower-end TE1 value. It is apparent that he will have a significant role in the offense as the No. 1 tight end, as he has posted 22 targets in his last three games.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic finished with four carries for 22 yards and four receptions for 34 yards, totaling 56 yards while seeing limited action. McKissic has carved out a significant role in the passing game, so that alone should be an incentive for fantasy managers to stash him moving forward. Not to mention, Antonio Gibson has been dealing with a significant injury that could eventually cause him to miss some time. In Week 7, McKissic could see some extra work against a Denver run defense that was carved up by D'Ernest Johnson and the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.
Washington Football Team kicker Chris Blewitt made one 45-yard field goal and one extra-point attempt in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Blewitt missed one of his field-goal attempts, so he didn't leave a great impression in his NFL debut, but the release of Dustin Hopkins was likely a sign he earned enough confidence from the coaching staff. Moving forward, Blewitt doesn't have enough appeal to be considered in fantasy lineups.
The Atlanta Falcons defense had a decent day in a 30-28 win over the Dolphins. Atlanta's unit intercepted quarterback Tua Tagovailoa twice and sacked him once. They did allow 28 points and 413 total yards of offense, which certainly didn't earn them many fantasy points. Still, it was the kind of performance that could give fantasy managers faith in using them as a streamer in the right matchup. That could be in Week 8 against the Panthers, who benched quarterback Sam Darnold in their loss to the Giants.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had another splendid outing, leading his team to a win over Washington on Sunday. The reigning MVP threw for 274 yards and three touchdowns, finding his favorite target, Davante Adams, in the first quarter for a 17-yard score. He also connected with Allen Lazard and Robert Tonyan, who each had end zone trips of their own. The 37-year-old continues to play well and has made fantasy managers forget about his disastrous Week 1 performance against the New Orleans Saints. Nonetheless, his short-term outlook doesn't look bright, primarily with an effective Arizona Cardinals defense on tap for a Thursday Night Football clash. However, Rodgers remains a must-start in all fantasy formats, but DFS enthusiasts may want to consider other options at the position heading into Week 8.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage enjoyed a solid game in his return to the field in a Week 7 win over Miami. Gage caught four passes for a season-high 67 yards, hauling in his first touchdown catch of the season on a long, 49-yard reception. The 25-year-old seems to be past the ankle issue that sidelined him for about a month- and he could be poised to deliver on the preseason hype surrounding him with the Falcons offense humming. Gage could be on the flex radar in Week 8 against a reeling Panthers team.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts caught seven of eight passes for a career-best 163 yards in Sunday's 30-28 win over Miami. Coming off of the best game of his young career in a win over the Jets in London, Pitts' second act was perhaps even better, as he repeatedly burnt the Dolphins secondary downfield time and time again, averaging an impressive 23.3 yards per reception. The budding star has now caught at least seven passes while exceeding the century mark in each of his last two games played. Pitts is building strong chemistry with quarterback Matt Ryan- which bodes well for his fantasy value in a tough matchup next week against Carolina.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley caught four passes for 26 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. Ridley saw double-digit targets for the fourth time this year but didn't appear to be on the same page as quarterback Matt Ryan- though the two did connect for a touchdown. After averaging a career-best 15.3 yards per reception last year, the star wideout is now averaging less than a first down per catch, an alarming drop-off. Ridley should still be considered among the league's best wideouts- and is seeing the elite-level volume to turn things around. Perhaps a Week 8 matchup with the Panthers, who allowed 178 yards and 11 catches to Ridley last year, can help him turn things around.
The Carolina Panthers are expected to be involved in trade talk for Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson before the November deadline, according to league and team sources. Panthers starter Sam Darnold was benched in favor of P.J. Walker in the fourth quarter of the Week 7 loss to the New York Giants after he went 16-for-25 for 111 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. Darnold got off to a good start in his first year in Carolina, but he's looked more like the QB he was with the New York Jets in recent weeks. With Watson available despite his ongoing legal issues, the Panthers are rethinking their Darnold investment. Watson is not on the commissioner's exempt list, but it remains to be seen if he'll be allowed to play in 2021 if he's traded by the Texans.
