Cincinnati Bengals RB Samaje Perine was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Oct. 21.
Fantasy Spin: Averaging 4.3 yards per carry, Perine is a must-own for Joe Mixon owners in fantasy as a handcuff.
Indianapolis Colts safety Julian Blackmon (Achilles) suffered a torn Achilles during Wednesday's practice and will miss the rest of the season. He went down with an injury in Wednesday's practice, and after further evaluation, the Colts announced that the 23-year-old tore his Achilles. This is a significant blow to the Colts' defense as Blackmon started all six games this season and had a vital role in their secondary. He racked up 34 tackles, one pass defense, and a forced fumble. Blackmon will look to rehab and focus on getting healthy for the 2022 season. Khari Willis, Andrew Sendejo, and George Odum are the only other active safeties on the Colts roster.
New York Giants running back Devontae Booker is expected to lead the Giants backfield in Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. The former Denver Bronco rushed 12 times for 41 yards and secured all four targets for 28 yards in the Giants' 38-11 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6. Giants star RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is expected to be ruled out ahead of Sunday's game; Booker should draw the start once again. The 29-year-old logged 73% (54-of-74) of the snaps, but backup RB Elijah Mitchell had the Giants' only touchdown in Week 6. Booker could have a tough time finding room as the Panthers have been stout against the run and rank seventh in rush DVOA. If Barkley is officially ruled out, fantasy managers can start Booker as an RB3/flex play in Week 7.
Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (foot, quad) is expected to play in Thursday's game against the Cleveland Browns. He is officially listed as questionable for Thursday after being limited in practice all week with a foot issue. The 28-year-old will look to bounce back against the Browns after turning the ball over three times (three interceptions, one fumble lost) in the Week 6 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. This season, he has been excellent for fantasy managers, throwing for 1,514 yards and a 10:4 TD: INT ratio while rushing for 66 yards on 15 attempts over six games. Bridgewater is a mid-range QB2 in Week 7 against a Browns defense, allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks in 2021.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) is dealing with a significant shoulder injury and faces an "uphill battle" to play in Thursday's game against the Denver Broncos. He hasn't practiced all week and is listed as questionable for Thursday's game. The 28-year-old reportedly is not expected to play, but the Browns have yet to rule him out officially. Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry (knee) is expected to be activated from the injured reserve ahead of Thursday's game and will be QB Case Keenum's No.1 target. Donovan Peoples-Jones, Rashard Higgins, and Anthony Schwartz could also see an increase in target share while Beckham is sidelined. Stay tuned.
Denver Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater (foot, quadriceps) is expected to play Thursday, Oct. 21, against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Spin: Bridgewater will have to deal with Myles Garrett and a very good Browns pass rush with possibly even more limited mobility. That's not a good recipe in fantasy. He's a QB2 this week.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton restructured his contract Thursday, Oct. 21, to create $2.3 million in salary cap space.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton is iffy with a quadriceps injury as he was injured in his first action of the season last week. He'll be a flex candidate if he can play.
The Cleveland Browns are expected to activate wide receiver Jarvis Landry (knee) from the injured reserve. If officially activated, the 28-year-old will play in Thursday's game against the Denver Broncos. He has been sidelined since Week 2 with an MCL sprain. The Browns will need Landry as they are missing some vital pieces on the offensive side of the ball. QB Baker Mayfield (shoulder), RB Nick Chubb (calf), and Kareem Hunt (calf) were already ruled out ahead of Thursday's game. Landry could be Browns QB Case Keenum No.1 target as top wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) faces an "uphill battle" to play in Week 7. Landry has hauled all six targets for 80 yards over two games in 2021. Fantasy managers should monitor Landry's status throughout the day, and if active, is a borderline flex play in Week 7.
Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) is expected to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 21, and should play against the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Spin: Landry is expected to be the only one out there with Baker Mayfield, Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb out, and OBJ is expected to be out. Landry is a risky flex option with Case Keenum under center.
Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) has an uphill battle to play Thursday, Oct. 21, due to a significant shoulder injury, but he hasn't been ruled out yet.
Fantasy Spin: Jarvis Landry looks to be ready to return, and he'll be a flex option fresh off of IR.
Carolina Panthers CB Stephon Gilmore (quadriceps) returned to practice on Wednesday, Oct. 20. The team now has 21 days to activate Gilmore from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list or place on him on Injured Reserve.
The Denver Broncos re-signed free agent WR David Moore to the practice squad on Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods hasn't been the elite fantasy option we've come to known from recent seasons, but he's still a solid flex option in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. Woods scored his third touchdown of the season in Week 6 and he's currently averaging just under 60 receiving yards per game. He's still averaging over seven targets per game and has 18 more than the third option on the team. Woods has a good matchup against a bad Lions secondary, and he should still be a flex option for this week.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee has been fading over the last few weeks, and he remains a TE2 option in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. There are multiple fantasy tight ends that are out this week on bye, and that bumps up the viability of Higbee. Higbee has seen at least five targets in four out of six games this season, and he's recorded at least 36 receiving yards in those same games as well. The Lions allow an average of 10.5 fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends, and with Higbee playing nearly all of the tight end snaps for the Rams, he has some playability this week.
Los Angeles Rams kicker Matt Gay has been quite consistent this year, and he remains a safe play in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. Gay has made 31 of his 33 kicking attempts this year, and the only reason he doesn't get put higher in the weekly kicker rankings is because of his offense's efficiency. He's kicked 12 field goals compared to 21 extra points. When the Rams have the ball, they're generally scoring touchdowns. In Week 7, the Rams draw the Lions, who have given up at least 19 points in all six games this season, and they've allowed 34 or more points in three of six games. Gay has a very high floor and should be a safe play in fantasy lineups against the winless Lions.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is the QB9 after six weeks, and he can easily move up the rankings in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions, where he spent the first 12 seasons of his career. Stafford is averaging over 300 yards and 2.7 passing touchdowns per game this season, and the Rams offense has been really clicking all year. The Lions have done a surprisingly decent job of containing quarterbacks in fantasy this year with games getting out of hand and offenses running on them. Even in a game against the New York Giants in Week 6 where the Rams blew out their opponent, Stafford still had over 250 yards and four passing touchdowns. In a revenge spot against his old team, Stafford is a strong start this week.
Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson Jr. has been one of the most consistent running backs in fantasy football this season, and that consistency should continue in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. In four complete games, Henderson has run for at least 70 yards and he's scored a touchdown in four out of five games overall. The Lions have been the worst defense in the NFL against running backs for fantasy. They're allowing an average of 33.5 PPR points to opposing running backs this year, due in large part to their 12 total touchdowns allowed, which is the most in the league. If you have Henderson on your roster, he should be in your lineup this week.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp is on another planet for fantasy wideouts entering Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. Kupp's 152.8 fantasy points in PPR setups are 15.1 more than any other wideout. He has a 47-point cushion between him and the WR12 on the year. Kupp leads the Rams with 68 targets, which is 24 more than any other Rams pass-catcher, and he has seven of the team's 16 receiving touchdowns. The Lions have only given up four touchdowns to opposing wideouts this year because they've been very forgiving to opposing running backs. Regardless of that, you're starting Kupp with confidence this week.
New Orleans Saints kicker Brian Johnson is not worth starting in Week 7. The Saints added Johnson this week after Cody Parkey was placed on injured reserve. The team's original starter, Wil Lutz, started the season on injured reserve with a core muscle injury. Johnson is now the fourth kicker New Orleans will start this season. The 22-year-old rookie went undrafted out of Virginia Tech. In four seasons at Tech, he went 54-for-71 in field goals and 131-for-131 in extra points. Once Johnson starts for the Saints, it will be his first kicking action in the NFL. Therefore, it's not worth starting him as he's not proven yet.
The New Orleans Saints defense is a strong play in Week 7 against Seattle. The unit has eight sacks, nine picks, and three forced fumbles on the season. Meanwhile, the Seahawks have lost starting QB Russell Wilson to a finger injury and are starting backup Geno Smith. Smith hasn't been terrific in two games thus far, posting 209 yards with a score in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. He also lost a costly fumble that sealed the game for Pittsburgh. The Saints' defense is potent enough to cause some mistakes from this offense, meaning they are worth the start.
