    Amari Cooper Oct 21 5:20pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper may miss the WR1 ranks for the first time this season in Week 7. With Andy Dalton under center in Week 6, Cooper caught seven passes for 79 yards and a touchdown, but most of it happened in garbage time. Combine the Dallas offense's struggles with the fact that the Washington Football Team actually defends opposing wide receivers well (allowing the second-fewest fantasy points so far) and Cooper is looking more like a mid-to-high end WR2 this week and potentially going forward.

    Josh Allen Oct 21 5:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen has not been the ideal fantasy quarterback over the last two weeks. Last week, he only threw for 122 passing yards in the loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. However, Allen has a great chance to rebound against the horrendous New York Jets in Week 7. Allen was looking like an MVP candidate through the first few weeks of the regular season. This is a fantastic opportunity for him to look like that guy once again. Allen is going to be an elite QB1 for the Week 7 matchup against the Jets.

    Jonnu Smith Oct 21 5:20pm ET

    Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith is averaging less than six yards per red-zone catch this year, but he's scored on all five of his red-zone catches (six targets) inside the 10-yard line. Smith has hooked up with quarterback Ryan Tannehill twice for 11 yards and two touchdowns on crossing routes in the red zone, which is tied for the most such touchdowns in the league. The 25-year-old ranks third in fantasy points at his position through six weeks, but he suffered a minor ankle injury in last week's overtime win over the Texans and is questionable for Sunday against the division-rival Steelers. If Smith plays through his injury, fantasy managers may want to temper expectations a bit against a Steelers Defense that is allowing the sixth-fewest fantasy points to tight ends.

    CeeDee Lamb Oct 21 5:20pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is still a decent fantasy option in Week 7, but his upside is severely limited by the new-look Cowboys offense featuring Andy Dalton at quarterback. Last week, in Dalton's first start, Lamb caught seven passes for 64 yards. He remains an exciting playmaker whenever the ball is thrown his way, but the quality of targets he sees will be much different that when Dak Prescott (ankle) was calling the shots. Lamb checks in as more of a high-end WR3 this week, especially with the Washington Football Team allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

    Devin Singletary Oct 21 5:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary has not looked sharp over the last two games, but has a chance to rebound here. He'll get a favorable matchup against the shaky New York Jets Defense. A team that has surrendered the fifth most fantasy points to running backs this season. Singletary will lose some of his touches to rookie Zack Moss, but that won't kill his value. Fantasy owners should be able to trust Singletary as a RB2 this week.

    Jonnu Smith Oct 21 5:13pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

    Fantasy Spin: Smith is coming off his worst game of the season and has only 53 yards in the last two games. He still has five touchdowns on the season and can be a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues despite the tough matchup.

    Tom Brady Oct 21 5:13pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (non-injury) didn't practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

    Fantasy Spin: There shouldn't be any concern here. Brady is off to a quality start for fantasy purposes, but he has topped 300 yards just once and attempted fewer than 30 passes for the first time in Week 6. He's a low-tier QB1 who's relying mainly on touchdown efficiency.

    Mike Evans Oct 21 5:13pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

    Fantasy Spin: Evans hasn't missed a game this season despite limited practices through the week ahead of most games. He was targeted just twice and made only one 10-yard catch in Week 6, but he has six touchdowns on the year and is clearly a go-to option for QB Tom Brady. He'll be a WR1 on Sunday Night Football against the Las Vegas Raiders.

    Andy Dalton Oct 21 5:10pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton does not make for a strong starting option in Week 7 fantasy lineups. Despite a trio of excellent wide receivers along with Ezekiel Elliott running the ball, the Cowboys offense was a mess in Week 6, as Dalton completed 34 of 54 passes for 266 yards. He looked overmatched, overwhelmed, and underprepared. With an extra week of practice, he may be a bit better this week, but he still has a lot to show before he can be counted on as a starting option in standard leagues. He's a low-end QB2 this week.

    Ezekiel Elliott Oct 21 5:10pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will remain an RB1 simply based on volume, but his value will certainly take a hit with Andy Dalton now under center. Elliott was a matchup-proof top-tier RB1 with Dak Prescott around, but with Dalton calling the shots now, he's more of a low-end RB1 option. "Zeke" did fumble twice last week, which had nothing to do with Dalton, and saw Tony Pollard make his way onto the field a lot more than usual. Still, Elliott's role is not at risk and he should still be starting in all lineups. He's run for 413 yards and gained 204 yards in the passing game so far this season, scoring six touchdowns.

    Tony Pollard Oct 21 5:10pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard saw a bit more play in Week 6 after starter Ezekiel Elliott fumbled twice in the first half. Starting over in Week 7, Pollard is almost sure to take a back seat to Elliott again, unless Elliott puts the ball on the ground again. Pollard got 10 chances to run the ball last week, gaining 31 yards. He was also targeted four times in the passing game, catching two for another nine yards. It was his first game with double-digit touches after a previous high of eight. He remains an extremely valuable backup and should be rostered, but he should not be started as long as Elliott remains on the field.

    San Francisco 49ers Oct 21 5:10pm ET

    The San Francisco 49ers acquired outside linebacker Jordan Willis and a seventh-round pick in 2021 from the New York Jets on Wednesday in exchange for a sixth-round pick in 2022, according to a source. Willis has no tackles and one fumble recovery in two games for the Jets this season and has recorded 52 tackles (36 solo), eight tackles for loss, nine QB hits and three sacks in 43 career games (two starts) between the Bengals and Jets since 2017. The 25-year-old will merely be linebacker/defensive end depth for San Francisco, while the Jets continue to accumulate late-round picks amidst their lost 2020 season.

    Marcedes Lewis Oct 21 5:03pm ET

    Green Bay Packers OT David Bakhtiari (chest), RB Tyler Ervin (wrist), DT Tyler Lancaster (shoulder) and S Darnell Savage (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21. LB Krys Barnes (calf, shoulder), LB Rashan Gary (ankle), CB Kevin King (quadriceps), TE Marcedes Lewis (knee), LB Preston Smith (shoulder), LB Za'Darius Smith (ankle) and WR Equanimeous St. Brown (knee) were limited during practice. CB Jaire Alexander (hand, knee) fully participated in practice.

    J.J. Watt Oct 21 5:03pm ET

    Houston Texans TE Jordan Akins (ankle, concussion), CB Keion Crossen (foot) and DE J.J. Watt (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21. LB Dylan Cole (knee), RB Buddy Howell (hamstring), LB Peter Kalambayi (hamstring), OG Senio Kelemete (knee), S Justin Reid (shoulder) and OT Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) were limited during practice.

    Jordan Willis Oct 21 5:03pm ET

    New York Jets LB Jordan Willis and a seventh-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft were acquired Wednesday, Oct. 21, by the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2022 draft, according to a source.

    From TheHuddle

    Russell Gage Oct 21 4:43pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

    Fantasy Spin: Gage is coming off one of his better games of the season in Week 6 but probably will lose a few targets with Julio Jones back in the lineup. He could be a possible flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

    From TheHuddle

    Takkarist McKinley Oct 21 4:43pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons DE Takkarist McKinley (groin) and DT Deadrin Senat (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21. WR Brandon Powell (elbow), CB Kendall Sheffield (foot), S Jaylinn Hawkins (concussion) and DE Dante Fowler (ankle) were limited during practice.

    From TheHuddle

    Calvin Ridley Oct 21 4:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (elbow) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

    Fantasy Spin: Ridley has been targeted at least 10 times in four of the six games this season and has five touchdowns during that span. He can be considered at least a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

    From TheHuddle

    Antonio Brown Oct 21 4:23pm ET

    Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is expected to receive interest from the Seattle Seahawks in the upcoming weeks, according to sources. Brown's suspension will end after Week 8, and he is receiving interest from other teams.

    Fantasy Spin: The Seahawks already have DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, so Brown may only be the No. 3 receiver if he decides to sign with Seattle. Brown has been one of the top receivers in the NFL for nearly a decade and will have fantasy value once he signs with a team.

    From TheHuddle

    Julio Jones Oct 21 4:23pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

    Fantasy Spin: Jones probably will not do much during practice this week but should be able to play in Week 7. He is coming off a two-touchdown performance and should be one of the main options in the passing game against the Detroit Lions. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
