Dalvin Cook continues hot start


It was quite an entertaining week of games around the league. There weren’t a ton of high-scoring shootouts but several games were close and decided late. Nine games were decided by less than a touchdown. That is pretty remarkable, showing just how close this league can be on a weekly basis.

From a fantasy perspective, it was just a so-so week. There was good and bad. Six quarterbacks had at least three touchdown passes. And six quarterbacks also hit the 300-yard mark. That isn't a huge week from the quarterback spot but decent. 

Rushing games didn’t see a ton of success for the second straight week. We had six running backs hit the 100-yard mark. There was just one running back that had multiple rushing touchdowns and that was a player no one used (Jeffery Wilson). It was not a great week at the running back spot. 

Receivers had a little more success with 15 players hitting the 100-yard mark. And five receivers had multiple scores in Week 2. So receivers weren’t off the charts but pretty good. 

Overall, it was a mixed bag in Week 2. Here is to hoping you were on the positive end of things and came out on top this week. 

Bucs 20, Panthers 14

Fantasy Stud: Chris Godwin. Godwin scored a touchdown for the second straight game and also hit the 100-yard mark in this one. He had eight receptions for 121 yards and a score. Godwin has outplayed Mike Evans the first two games of the season and sure looks his way to a breakout season, like many predicted.

Fantasy Dud: Christian McCaffrey. McCaffrey had an awful game for his standards. He had just 53 total yards in the game. And it wasn’t for a big lack of touches. He had 16 carries and two receptions. The Bucs just did a good job containing him. It really looked like their focus was accounting for McCaffrey throughout the game. We wouldn’t expect another game like this from McCaffrey in the near future, but it shows he is at least human.

Game Notes: Cam Newton really struggled in this one. He missed on a lot of throws, going 25-of-51 for 333 yards without a touchdown or interception. Newton still doesn't look quite right, missing on a lot of throws he normally makes. 

Petyon Barber dominated the work at running back for the Bucs. He ran 23 times for 82 yards and a touchdown compared to four carries for nine yards from Ronald Jones. Barber seems to have a pretty strong hold on the starter’s job at this point.

49ers 41, Bengals 17

Fantasy Stud: Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo had a great showing the second time out this year, going 17-of-25 for 297 yards and three touchdowns with an interception. It was a very encouraging showing as he returns form his major knee injury. He seems to be rounding into form and could be a help to fantasy teams the rest of the way.

Fantasy Dud: Joe Mixon. Mixon was able to play and had double-digit carries, but did very little. He ran 11 times for just 17 yards. Mixon also had three receptions for just 10 yards. The good news was Mixon didn't look too slowed in the game. He should get better going forward. 

Game Notes: Tyler Boyd had a huge game, catching 10 passes for 122 yards. Boyd has 18 receptions and 21 targets in two games this year, getting a ton of volume in this offense.

Matt Breida did a great job as the lead back for the 49ers, rushing 13 times for 124 Yards. He also had a catch for 11 yards, giving him 135 total yards.

Lions 13, Chargers 10

Fantasy Stud: Austin Ekeler. Ekeler continues to excel as the lead back for the Chargers. He had 17 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown. He also caught six passes for 67 yards. He had 175 total yards and a score. Ekeler has touchdowns each of the first two games and 12 total receptions. He has been a fantasy star to start the season.

Fantasy Dud: Philip Rivers. This doesn’t happen much but Rivers went without a score in this game. He was 21-of-36 for 293 yards with an interception. Rivers had a three-touchdown game to open the season, so this game was a bit of a surprise. Rivers can still produce at a high level but don’t be surprised if he has a few more dud games along the way. He isn’t getting any younger.

Game Notes: Kenny Golladay hit the 100-yard mark, catching eight passes for 117 yards and a touchdown. Golladay has touchdowns each of the first two games this season.

Keenan Allen had eight receptions for the second straight game. He had eight receptions for 98 yards. He has been targeted 25 times in two games.

Colts 19, Titans 17

Fantasy Stud: Jacoby Brissett. Brissett didn’t throw for many yards (146) but had three touchdown passes. He made plays in the red zone and produced well for all the fantasy owners that took a chance on him. Brissett has five touchdowns to just one interception his first two games. He is taking care of the ball and finding the end zone.

Fantasy Dud: Marlon Mack. Mack wasn’t much of a factor in this one after a huge Week 1. He did get 20 carries, but managed just 51 yards. He averaged just 2.5 yards per carry. He also caught two passes for 12 yards, producing little for all his fantasy owners. The good news is he continues to get a ton of volume. This was a tough matchup, so expect Mack to do just fine going forward.

Game Notes: Derrick Henry found the end zone for the second straight game. He had 15 carries for 81 yards and a touchdown. He also had two receptions for 12 yards, going him 93 total yards.

Eric Ebron had a much better showing after catching just a ball in Week 1. He had three receptions for 25 yards and a touchdown. Ebron showed his red-zone prowess once again. 

Packers 21, Vikings 16

Fantasy Stud: Dalvin Cook. Cook had his second straight huge game, making a case for top fantasy back right now. He ran 20 times for 154 yards and a touchdown. He also had three receptions for 37 yards, giving him 191 total yards. Cook has back-to-back 100-yard games to start his season and seems well on his way to a monster season if he can stay healthy.

Fantasy Dud: Jimmy Graham. Graham showed some promise in the opener but didn’t do anything this week. He went without a reception on two targets. It was a disappointing showing after giving fantasy owners some hope last week. Graham is looking like a pure streaming play for fantasy teams.

Game Notes: Jones was a dud last week but looked great here, rushing 23 times for 116 yards and a touchdown. He also had three receptions for 34 yards, giving him 150 total yards. Jones showed his huge potential in this matchup. 

Davante Adams rebounded nicely from Week 1, catching seven passes for 106 yards. He looked a lot more like the Adams from last season. 

Patriots 43, Dolphins 0

Fantasy Stud: Patriots defense. This unit absolutely dominated the Dolphins. It was an unbelievable showing from a fantasy perspective. The Patriots defense scored two touchdowns on interception returns. The team had four interceptions in all and had seven sacks. This defense is looking to be legit and one of the best for fantasy purposes this year. 

Fantasy Dud: Josh Gordon. Gordon had a quiet game, having two receptions for just 19 yards. The addition of Antonio Brown and the Patriots throwing just 28 passes led to the down showing for Gordon. He is still going to have some big games in this offense but could be a little more up and down because of the factors mentioned.   

Game Notes: Antonio Brown was active and led the team in receptions and yards. He caught four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown. Brown was kind of eased back into action this week but should get a lot more work the rest of the way - as long as he is on the field.

Ryan Fitzpatrick was a disaster for the second straight game. He was 11-of-21 for 89 yards with three interceptions. He was replaced by Josh Rosen once again. Rosen wasn’t much better, going 7-of-18 for 97 yards with an interception. 

Bills 28, Giants 14

Fantasy Stud: Saquon Barkley. Barkley got it done on the ground once again. He rushed 18 times for 107 yards and a touchdown. He also had three receptions for 28 yards, giving him 135 total yards. Barkley has two straight 100-yard games to start his season. The Giants might not be very good, but Barkley keeps getting it done for all his fantasy teams. 

Fantasy Dud: Eli Manning. Manning wasn’t much of a help to fantasy teams once again. He was 26-of-45 for 250 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions. You have to wonder how much longer Manning will keep the starting job if the Giants keep losing and Manning keeps struggling. His time could be coming to an end shortly. 

Game Notes: Frank Gore started and had a decent game, rushing 19 times for 68 yards and a touchdown. Rookie Devin Singletary continues to impress with his work, though, running six times for 57 yards and a touchdown. He did injury his hamstring in the game and was lifted. So this is an injury to watch with Singletary playing well when on the field. 

John Brown had seven receptions for 72 yards. He has 14 receptions in two games, having seven receptions each of his first two games.

Seahawks 28, Steelers 26

Fantasy Stud: Vance McDonald. McDonald didn’t have a bunch of yards but racked up seven receptions and scored twice. He had seven catches for 38 yards and two scores. McDonald might not get a ton of yards this year but should get a good amount of targets and red-zone looks in tis offense. He should be considered a low-end No. 1.

Fantasy Dud: Donte Moncrief. Moncrief led the Steelers in targets in Week 1, having 10, so many had some hope for him this week. Well, Moncrief disappointed all those that used him. He failed to catch a pass. So after two games, he has three receptions for seven yards. Moncrief is not a fantasy player to be used right now.

Game Notes: Ben Roethlisberger injured his right elbow and unable to return. He was 8-of-15 for 75 yards without a touchdown or an interceptions. Mason Rudolph played pretty well in relief, finishing 12-of-19 for 112 years and two touchdowns with an interception. 

Rashaad Penny led the Seahawks in rushing. He ran 10 time for 62 yard and a touchdown. He outgained Chris Carson, who had 15 carries for 61 yards. 

Cowboys 31, Redskins 21

Fantasy Stud: Ezekiel Elliott. Elliott got a much bigger workload this week and did well with his chances, rushing 23 times for 111 yards and a touchdown. He also had two catches for nine yards, giving him 120 total yards. Elliott doesn't seem to have any snap restrictions on him going forward and should be an elite fantasy back the rest of the way. He is just getting going. 

Fantasy Dud: Vernon Davis. Davis looked to have a bigger role in the offense once again with Jordan Reed out. He had some big things expected from him after the Cowboys were torched by the tight end in their opener. Davis wasn’t much of a factor, though, having three receptions for 29 yards. He still has some potential in this pass-first offense when starting but expect inconsistent production at this stage of his career. 

Game Notes: Terry McLaurin followed his rookie debut with another strong showing. He led the team in receiving once again, catching five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown. McLaurin has touchdowns each of his first two games and 16 targets during that stretch. 

Devin Smith was a big surprise, catching three passes for 74 yards and a touchdown on three targets. He could be getting more chances going forward after this big game.

Ravens 23, Cardinals 17

Fantasy Stud: Lamar Jackson. Jackson followed his big opener with another great game. He was a much bigger factor as a runner after doing little running in Week 1. He hit the 100-yard mark, rushing 16 times for 120 yards. He also was 24-of-37 for 272 yards and two touchdowns without a turnover. Jackson is off to a fantastic start and looking to be a huge fantasy factor in year two of his career.

Fantasy Dud: David Johnson. Johnson was able to find the end zone but did about zero besides that score. He ran seven times for 14 yards and caught pass for no gain. He also injured his elbow in the game but was able to play with the injury. Johnson had a good game in the opener, but did not look good in this one. It might be more of the same erratic play going forward, playing in an offense that runs the ball little.

Game Notes: Mark Andrews had his second straight 100-yard showing. He had eight receptions for 112 yards and a touchdown. Andrews has eight receptions and at least 100 yard each of his first two games.

The Cardinals had two 100-yard receivers. Christian Kirk had six receptions for 114 yards and Larry Fitzgerald caught five passes for 104 yards. This could be the norm in this pass-first offense. 

Texans 13, Jaguars 12

Fantasy Stud: D.J. Chark. Chark continues his emergence in the Jaguars passing game. He had seven receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown. Chark has touchdowns each of his first two game and 11 total receptions. He is becoming the go-to target in this Jaguars passing attack. He deserves to be owned in all fantasy formats. 

Fantasy Dud: Deshaun Watson. Watson had a really down game for his standards. He did not throw a touchdown pass and failed to even hit 200-passing yards. He was 16-of-29 for 159 yards without a touchdown or interception. He did get a rushing touchdown, which helped his overall numbers, but it was still a really poor showing for Watson. He scored little. 

Game Notes: Gardner Minshew made his debut as the starting quarterback for the Jaguars and didn’t do too badly. He was 23-of-33 for 213 yards and a touchdown without an interception. The Jaguars don’t seem too afraid of going Minshew passing often as their starter. 

Carlos Hyde led the Texans in rushing, getting 20 carries for 90 yards. Hyde has 80-plus rushing yards each of his first two games this season. 

Chiefs 28, Raiders 10

Fantasy Stud: Patrick Mahomes. Not a surprise but Mahomes put on a clinic in this one. And this came after a slow start to his game, getting shutout in the first quarter. That didn’t stop Mahomes from producing big, though. He was 30-of-44 for 443 yards and four touchdowns without an interception. He is the best fantasy quarterback in the game and maybe the best fantasy player. He just posts huge numbers every week.

Fantasy Dud: Damien Williams. Williams had some touches but that didn’t produce much. He ran nine times for just eight yards, averaging less than a yard per carry. He did get a little work in the passing game, catching three passes for 48 yards. But overall, it was a dud of a game from Williams. LeSean McCoy actually out-touched him in the game, having 14 touches for 23 yards. 

Game Notes: Demarcus Robinson had a monster game, getting a chance for an expanded role in the offense. He caught six passes for 172 yards and two touchdowns. Robinson might be playing his way into a bigger role going forward. 

Darren Waller led the Raiders in receiving, catching six passes for 63 yards. Waller has 13 receptions in two games and is a huge part of this passing game right now. 

Rams 27, Saints 9 

Fantasy Stud: Michael Thomas. Thomas didn’t score or hit the 100-yard mark, but he had 10 receptions. He finished with 10 catches for 89 yards. Thomas has double-digit receptions each of his first games to start the year. He is going to have another huge year as the top pass catcher in this offense. 

Fantasy Dud: Alvin Kamara. Kamara was surprisingly quiet in what seemed a great fantasy matchup for him. He ran 13 times for 45 yards and caught just a pass for 15 yards. You expected much better from him, especially in a game setup to be a high-scoring affair. Kamara will be just fine, but this game likely did in a lot of his fantasy owners.

Game Notes: Drew Brees injured his hand early in the game and was unable to continue. He tried to grip and throw a ball on the sidelines to return to the game but was unable to make it work. This is an obvious injury to watch going forward. Keep an eye on the player notes for the latest. 

Cooper Kupp had his first 100-yard game of the season. He finished with five receptions for 120 yards. He has been targeted 19 times in two games. 

Bears 16, Broncos 14

Fantasy Stud: Emmanuel Sanders. Sanders looks all the way back from his torn Achilles’ from last year. He had a huge game, catching 11 passes for 98 yards and a touchdowns. He also converted a two-point try to give the team a brief lead in the game. Sanders is looking like a bargain for fantasy teams right now, having two straight strong showings to start his season. 

Fantasy Dud: Tarik Cohen. Cohen was not a factor in this game, having six touches. He ran four times for 18 yards and caught two passes for seven yards. Cohen is a little hard to trust right now, plashing in an offense that rotates three backs. Cohen has 74 total yards in two games.

Game Notes: David Montgomery dominated carries for the Bears, rushing 18 times for 62 yards and a touchdown. he had 14 more carries than the next back. This could be a trend going forward. 

Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay split the work at running back for the Broncos. Freeman had the better game, rushing 11 times for 54 yards. He also caught five passes for 48 yards, giving him 102 total yards. Lindsay had 13 carries for 36 yards and caught four passes for 30 yards, giving him 66 total yards. 

Falcons 24, Eagles 20

Fantasy Stud: Julio Jones. Jones didn’t get the volume of work he normally gets but made the most of his chances. He had five receptions for 106 yards and two touchdowns. Jones has touchdowns each of his first two game and 11 receptions in those games. He is having another fine season and performing like an elite fantasy receiver once again. 

Fantasy Dud: Miles Sanders. Sanders did lead the team in carries this week but had little room to run. He finished with 10 carries for 28 yards. And he caught three passes for just nine yards. Sanders is off to a slow start to his rookie year with the Eagles struggling to run the ball. The good news for Sanders is Jordan Howard is doing little as well, rushing eight times for 18 yards in this game. 

Game Notes: Both DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery left the game with injuries. Jackson injured his groin and Jeffery suffered a calf injury. Both injuries are something to monitor with both players starting at receiver for the Eagles.

Calvin Ridley had his first 100-yard game of the year and found the end zone for the second straight week. Ridley had eight recipients for 105 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets.

Player Notes
Dallas Goedert Oct 13 9:10pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught five passes in Week 6, gaining 48 yards. He was targeted eight times, and was much more involved than he'd been in previous games, with Zach Ertz seeing just one more target. Goedert is about due for a "blow up" game, but his usage remains too inconsistent to be anything more than a TE2, even with how weak the position has been in fantasy this year.

From RotoBaller

Jake Elliott Oct 13 9:10pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott made all of his kicks in Week 6. Elliott split the uprights on his two extra point attempts and also made field goals from 53 and 40 yards out. It was a solid performance for Elliott, who should continue to be one of the more consistent fantasy kickers going forward.

From RotoBaller

Mack Hollins Oct 13 9:00pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Mack Hollins did nothing in Week 6, making no catches on two targets. Hollins was on the field in three-wide sets but only saw two balls go his way and did nothing with them. With DeSean Jackson (abdomen) targeting a Week 7 return, Hollins should return to his special teams role soon.

From RotoBaller

Darren Fells Oct 13 9:00pm ET

Houston Texans tight end Darren Fells had six receptions for 69 yards in the win over the Chiefs on Sunday. Fells was fresh off of a two-touchdown performance against the Falcons coming into this one and continued to get looks from quarterback Deshaun Watson. If he is available in deeper formats, snag him up before it's too late.

From RotoBaller

A.J. Brown Oct 13 9:00pm ET

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown has been quiet over the last two games after a two touchdown performance in Week 4. Brown caught two of his four targets in the 16-0 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 6. The Titans continue to have struggles on offense and that has hurt Brown's value. Fantasy owners can't expect much at this point, so Brown should be considered a low-end flex option for next week versus the Chargers.

From RotoBaller

JJ Arcega-Whiteside Oct 13 9:00pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside was not even targeted in Week 6. The hyped-up rookie now has two games in a row where he's drawn no targets. With DeSean Jackson (abdomen) on his way back to the field soon, Arcega-Whiteside will continue to have zero value in redraft formats.

From RotoBaller

Demaryius Thomas Oct 13 9:00pm ET

New York Jets wide receiver Demaryius Thomas made four catches for 62 yards in a win over the Cowboys Sunday. The 62 yards are the most Thomas has gained in three games played this season, and he has been getting more involved in the offense overall. On the Jets second drive, the first goal-to-go snap they ran was a quick slant to Thomas for what would have been an easy touchdown, had it not been for pass interference. Despite the Jets trying to get Thomas more involved, it'll be hard for them to support three fantasy-relevant wide receivers and Thomas has been the third guy behind Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder. As long as Anderson, Crowder and running back Le'Veon Bell are healthy, Thomas likely won't see enough targets to be relevant in standard-size fantasy leagues.

From RotoBaller

Zach Ertz Oct 13 9:00pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz caught four passes in Week 6, gaining 54 scoreless yards and losing a fumble. Ertz was targeted nine times, but has now scored just one touchdown through six weeks of the season. He hasn't gone over 72 yards receiving yet either. In a position as shallow as tight end, Ertz is very much still a weekly TE1, but he seems to be working with much less upside than in previous seasons. We'll see if the Eagles start getting Ertz more involved going forward.

From RotoBaller

Alshon Jeffery Oct 13 8:50pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery caught 10 passes in Week 6, gaining 76 yards and scoring a touchdown. Jeffery was faded in many rankings this week as he was taking on the Minnesota Vikings secondary, but he picked up several quick short passes and came down with a three-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Jeffery should be able to maintain his value as a WR2/3 even when DeSean Jackson (abdomen) returns to the starting lineup.

From RotoBaller

Will Fuller Oct 13 8:50pm ET

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller hauled in five receptions for 44 yards during the win over the Chiefs on Sunday. While he was nowhere near the level of efficiency that we saw in Week 5, it was still a semi-decent performance for those who had him in PPR lineups. With nine targets on the night, Fuller should continue to be involved moving ahead despite the potential return of Kenny Stills (hamstring), who is expected back soon.

From RotoBaller

Jamison Crowder Oct 13 8:50pm ET

New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder made six catches for 98 yards in a win over the Cowboys Sunday. Crowder was excited to have starting quarterback Sam Darnold back under center as Crowder had his biggest game since Week 1, the last game Darnold played before being ruled out with mono. In two games with Darnold, Crowder has 20 catches for 197 yards as opposed to the 75 yards total he had in three games with backups starting for New York. Having Darnold back makes Crowder a startable WR3 in fantasy, even with a tough matchup with New England looming next Monday night.

From RotoBaller

Cleveland Browns Oct 13 8:50pm ET

The Cleveland Browns Defense struggled in a 32-28 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6. Cleveland's offense jumped out to a 20-6 lead early in the second quarter but the defense was unable to hold on for the win, allowing 26 points in the final three quarters. The defense didn't get much help as the Cleveland offense committed four turnovers in the loss. Seattle also got excellent field position after blocking a punt. On the plus side, Cleveland's defense continues to sack the quarterback at a high rate, notching another three in the contest while also forcing one turnover. The Browns defense has plenty of talent but they have played a tough schedule thus far. Things won't let up after their Week 7 bye as they draw a brutal road matchup against the undefeated New England Patriots in Week 8. At least fantasy owners have two weeks to make plans to secure a proper replacement defense in their fantasy leagues before that matchup.

From RotoBaller

Nelson Agholor Oct 13 8:50pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor caught four passes in Week 6, gaining 42 scoreless yards. He had one catch in his last two games combined, so while it was nice to see him come down with the four catches, he didn't really do much to inspire confidence in his play going forward. He simply does not have NFL-caliber hands. Agholor will be a desperation-only play going forward, especially when DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is back on the field.

From RotoBaller

Keke Coutee Oct 13 8:50pm ET

Houston Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee had four catches for 39 yards during the win over the Chiefs on Sunday. While DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, and Darren Fells accounted for 28 looks from quarterback Deshaun Watson, Coutee was still semi-involved to the delight of those who had him in fantasy lineups to provide some injury relief. With Kenny Stills (hamstring) potentially returning against the Colts in Week 7, Coutee may not be as involved moving forward.

From RotoBaller

Delanie Walker Oct 13 8:40pm ET

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker has been unable to do much over the last three games, but it's not all his fault. Walker hauled in three of his five targets for 43 yards in the Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos. Both incompletions were bad passes by the quarterback, so difficult to blame Walker there. Walker might have better fantasy value in another system as the Titans really struggle to get him the ball. He'll have low-end TE1 upside against the Chargers in Week 7.

From RotoBaller

DeAndre Hopkins Oct 13 8:40pm ET

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins hauled in nine receptions for 55 yards during the win over the Chiefs. While his 12 targets were a season-high, his lack of scores on the year has severely diminished his fantasy value outside of non-PPR formats. Nonetheless, Hopkins remains a must-start moving forward and hopefully can find the end zone against the Colts in Week 7.

From RotoBaller

Miles Sanders Oct 13 8:40pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles rookie running back Miles Sanders made the most of his touches in Week 6. Sanders carried the ball just three times, gaining six yards. All of his damage came through the air though, where he caught three passes for 86 yards and a touchdown. The rookie's score came on a 32-yard pass from Carson Wentz in the second quarter. Sanders getting only six touches is a bit concerning, but if he can do this much with that little, he'll continue to at least have RB3/4 appeal.

From RotoBaller

Le'Veon Bell Oct 13 8:40pm ET

New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell carried the ball 14 times for 50 yards and scored his first touchdown since a receiving score in Week 1 vs Buffalo. Bell has been the centerpiece of the Jets offense so far playing a 94.3 percent snap share coming into the game, and head coach Adam Gase seemed determined to get his workhorse into the end zone. After a pass interference call in the end zone, the Jets gave Bell the ball not once but twice to score the first touchdown of the afternoon. Bell was limited in the passing game today with only a three-yard catch on one target, but was still the primary back used by New York as no other running back had more than three touches. Bell is a must-start running back despite a tough matchup vs New England in Week 7.

From RotoBaller

Boston Scott Oct 13 8:40pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott carried the ball four times in Week 6, gaining 30 yards. Scott was just elevated to the active roster from the practice squad this week, to take the place of Corey Clement (shoulder) on the running back depth chart. Scott will serve mostly in a complementary role on offense while spending most of his time on special teams, but if Miles Sanders keeps showing nothing in the running game, Scott could suddenly see himself elevated even further in the game plan.

From RotoBaller

Corey Davis Oct 13 8:40pm ET

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis was quiet once again in the 16-0 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 6. Davis caught three of his five targets for 36 yards on Sunday. Davis has put together one good game all season and is making it difficult on fantasy owners to even trust him. The Titans have struggled to get their receivers the ball and that will likely continue. Fantasy owners should consider Davis a low-end flex option for Week 7 versus the Chargers.
