The Atlanta Falcons Defense had another quiet statistical day in a 23-22 loss to the Detroit Lions. Not only did they record just two sacks and no interceptions, but they also gave up the game-winning score to tight end T.J. Hockenson. This unit is definitely one to avoid for fantasy purposes, especially considering they offer no upside. Leave them on the waiver wire.
Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo had just two opportunities- a pair of extra-points- and he made both of them in a 23-22 loss to the Detroit Lions. It was Koo's first game this year without at least one field-goal made. Otherwise, he's been an excellent fantasy kicker playing on a team whose offense constantly finds itself in or near the red zone. That alone gives Koo upside in most weeks. He should be in lineups for next week's divisional clash against the Panthers.
The Pittsburgh Steelers Defense was quiet in a 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. Pittsburgh was unable to force a turnover and was credited with just two sacks in the game. While it wasn't a fantasy-scoring bonanza for the Steelers, they held their own against a Tennessee offense that had been one of the highest-scoring in the league coming into Week 7. T.J. Watt and Vince Williams both led the way in the win with one sack apiece. Pittsburgh's defense draws another tough matchup in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Hayden Hurst caught six of seven targets for 68 receiving yards against the Lions. Hurst and Matt Ryan had a rhythm all game, as the former worked the intermediate routes to perfection. That's two games in a row for the 27-year-old with at least 50 yards receiving, as the coaching staff seems to be finding more ways to get him the ball. A tough matchup with the Panthers awaits- they held him to just eight yards- though Hurst is playing too well to bench right now.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage hauled in six of seven targets for 54 receiving yards in a loss to the Lions. Gage tied with Calvin Ridley and Hayden Hurst for second on the team in targets. The 24-year-old did injure his knee in the first quarter but was able to return to the action. He has seen at least seven targets in two of the three games that fellow wideout Julio Jones has been healthy for, indicating that Jones' presence does wonders for Gage in terms of opening up opportunities on the outside. As long as Matt Ryan continues to play well, Gage should be in the conversation as a WR3/4.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Eric Ebron caught six of his eight targets for 50 yards in a 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. Ebron finished third on the team in receiving, behind Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster, and surprisingly ahead of rookie Chase Claypool. It continues a strong stretch of play for Ebron, who has caught at least five passes in three of his past four games. While he only has one touchdown on the year, Ebron is turning out to be a high-end TE2 for fantasy purposes in his first season with the Steelers. He will face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 8.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool lost two yards on his lone reception in a 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. It goes down as a disappointing outing for the rookie, who had scored five total touchdowns in the previous two games. The return of Diontae Johnson certainly played into Claypool's slow outing, as did the resurgence of JuJu Smith-Schuster, who drew 14 targets. Claypool's fantasy value going forward appears to be tied to the availability of Johnson, who is the clear alpha wide receiver in Pittsburgh. That being said, Johnson injured his ankle late in the game. The injury doesn't appear to be serious but neither did the back injury that held him out of almost all of the past two games. After looking like a must-start heading into Week 7, Claypool is all of a sudden a shaky flex play for Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley caught five of seven targets for 69 receiving yards and a touchdown in a narrow 23-22 loss to Detroit. Ridley corralled Matt Ryan's lone touchdown throw of the day and made a couple of highlight-reel grabs, including a nifty sideline catch where he got both feet in-bounds. Ridley has produced at least seven targets in all but one game and has eclipsed 100 yards four times already, after doing it twice all of last year. The breakout is in full effect and should continue into Week 8 against the Panthers, who Ridley torched for 136 receiving yards back in Week 6.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski had another terrific performance in Week 7, getting five receptions for 62 yards and a score on eight targets. Gronk is starting to look like himself and that's encouraging for fantasy managers. The big tight end has now scored a touchdown in two straight games. He has also seen at least six targets in the past three games and has gotten over 52 yards in those games as well. Gronk is definitely in the starting conversation going forward.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones paced the team in targets, nine, receptions, eight, and receiving yards, 97, in a 23-22 loss to the Lions. He may not have found the end zone, but it's the kind of consistent performance that fantasy managers have come to expect from the former Alabama star. Jones has now averaged 10.3 targets per game in the contests that he's been healthy for, which places him where he's been for the last seven or so seasons- in the elite WR1 conversation. Week 8 brings a matchup against the Panthers, who have struggled to contain opposing number-one wideouts this season.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin recorded nine receptions for 88 yards and a score on nine targets in Week 7. The WR finally had his breakout game of the season and proved on Sunday why he was a very high pick in drafts this year. Assuming Godwin stays healthy, he is a solid play each week given his large role in this offense.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner gained 82 yards on 20 carries and added three receptions for 29 yards in a 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. It goes down as the first time Conner has failed to find the end zone since Week 1 this season. To make matters worse for fantasy managers, Conner had to watch as Benny Snell Jr. vultured him with a one-yard touchdown run in the game. Conner has been a reliable fantasy asset this season but he draws a tough matchup against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 8.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans had a quiet day in Week 7, grabbing two receptions for 37 yards on two targets. It was certainly a disappointing day for Evans considering several of his teammates had a terrific game. With many mouths to feed on this offense, days like this are bound to happen and the addition of Antonio Brown will only saturate this unit more. Nevertheless, Evans is a top target for Tom Brady and remains in the starting conversation each week given his potential.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster caught nine of 14 targets for 85 yards in a 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. It was a welcome sight as Smith-Schuster wound up leading the Steelers in receiving in the outing after doing very little on the field over the previous two weeks. Smith-Schuster still has a way to go before fantasy managers can fully trust him in their lineups but at least he turned in a useful stat line in Week 7. He may struggle to repeat his success in a tough Week 8 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II ended Week 7 with 13 carries for 34 yards and a rushing touchdown along with one reception for two yards on two targets. Jones had a disappointing week as he had over 100 yards rushing the past three games. In addition, Leonard Fournette received 11 carries and was a bigger factor. Going forward, Jones is still the safest RB option from this team considering his good workload each week and general consistency.
Atlanta Falcons running back Todd Gurley II enjoyed a nice bounce-back performance in a loss to the Lions. Gurley II handled a season-high 25 touches, turning them into a disappointing 82 scrimmage yards, though he found the end zone twice. It's become somewhat of a theme for the veteran back, as he's been largely unimpressive on the ground aside from games against the Bears and Panthers. Still, he's been a rock-solid RB2 for fantasy purposes. A juicy matchup awaits in Week 8 against the Panthers, who allowed Gurley II to run wild for 121 rushing yards in Week 6.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger struggled in a 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. Roethlisberger completed 32 of 49 passes for 268 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the win. He connected with wideout Diontae Johnson for both of his touchdowns, giving the veteran 13 scores on the year. Overall, it was a rough outing for Roethlisberger, who came into the game with just one interception on the year. Roethlisberger may struggle to shake off the poor outing in Week 8 against a tough defense employed by the Baltimore Ravens.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Scotty Miller paced the team with six receptions for 109 yards and a score on nine targets in the Week 7 win over the Raiders. This was by far Miller's best game of the season in terms of receptions, yards, and targets. The addition of Antonio Brown will likely impact Miller's production going forward and the WR has been inconsistent, meaning he's a risky flex play at best for fantasy.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady may be 43, but he sure didn't look like it on Sunday. The QB torched the Raiders by going 33-for-45 for 369 yards and four touchdowns. He also added a rushing touchdown. It was another terrific performance by Brady and the addition of Antonio Brown very soon could only elevate his play. The QB remains in the starting tier each week considering the numbers he has been putting up this season.
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan completed 31 of 42 passes for 338 yards and a touchdown in a 23-22 loss to the Lions. Ryan found Calvin Ridley for his lone score of the game, though there certainly opportunities for more. Still, the takeaway from this game is that Ryan has righted the ship after there were some reasons to be concerned about his performances- Julio Jones certainly helped in that regard. The veteran signal-caller will look to do better in his second try against the Panthers Defense after they held him under 250 passing yards without a score.
