  Chiefs | Tyreek Hill leads KC in receiving    Fri Oct 20, 01:21 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill had six receptions, 125 receiving yards and a touchdown in a loss to the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Oct. 19.

Footballguys view: Hill's ability to get behind the defense and score from long range makes him a must play every week even if he had been running cold in prior weeks. The Denver matchup next week is brutal, but we saw what we risk missing if Hill is on our benches.

  Chiefs | Alex Smith lights up Raiders    Fri Oct 20, 12:47 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 25-for-36 for 342 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions during the team's Week 7 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Footballguys view: Smith was outstanding throwing downfield, but did get away with a ball that should have been picked and instead turned into a long touchdown for Albert Wilson. Demarcus Robinson might be an upgrade from Chris Conley at #2 wide receiver, and Smith did this without any big gains from Travis Kelce. He'll be a less desirable option against Denver next week, but otherwise a solid QB1 going forward.

  Raiders | Michael Crabtree scores again    Fri Oct 20, 12:38 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree had three receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football.

Footballguys view: Crabtree caught the game-winning score to save his fantasy night, but took a backseat to Amari Cooper the rest of the night. He seemed like a reliable low WR1 going into this one, but his weekly floor is going to be lower in light of this result.

  Raiders | Jared Cook has big night    Fri Oct 20, 12:27 AM

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook logged six receptions (on seven targets) for 107 yards Thursday, Oct. 19, against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Cook had a potential game-winning score clank off of his hands, but he was strong in the middle of the field and also caught a highlight reel play to set up the game-winning situation. He has streamer appeal every week with this upside finally flashed in the Oakland offense and a healthy Derek Carr.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper finally breaks out    Fri Oct 20, 12:16 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper caught 11 passes for 210 yards and a pair of touchdowns during the team's Week 7 win against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Cooper is back. If he was on your bench, you won't make that mistake again.

  Raiders | Derek Carr tops 400 yards passing    Fri Oct 20, 12:11 AM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 29 of 52 passes for 417 yards and three touchdowns against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, Oct. 19. Carr added a 15-yard run and did not turn the ball over.

Footballguys view: Carr was bold throwing downfield, negotiated the pocket well, and avoided mistakes. He is back to being a QB1 going into a matchup with Buffalo next week.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants to play fast    Thu Oct 19, 11:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said they are at their best when using an 'up-tempo' offense, and the Seahawks have scored on nine of the 12 drives when they have used a no-huddle approach.

Footballguys view: If the Seahawks adopt this as a primary approach on offense, Wilson's weekly ceiling and floor will both leap, and there will be more touchdowns for Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham. Watch this closely against the Giants to see if the second half will once again hold better things for the Seahawks offense.

  Bills | Tyrod Taylor looking to improve    Thu Oct 19, 11:27 PM

  Giants | Changes boost NYG run game    Thu Oct 19, 11:00 PM

New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan said they revamped the run game to use more traps, quick dives and outside zone prior to their Week 6 game when the Giants rushed 32 times for 148 yards against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: The Chargers should try to copy that this week with Melvin Gordon. Meanwhile, it will be revealing to see if the Giants can run as well against the Seahawks, who are coming off of a bye.

  Patriots | Dion Lewis' usage trending up    Thu Oct 19, 10:23 PM

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis has rushed 18 times for 105 yards in the last two games after rushing a combined 12 times for 46 yards in the first four games.

Footballguys view: Lewis appears to have an edge over Mike Gillislee to lead the backfield in touches and get the first shot at goal line carries. He's at least a flex play against Atlanta this week.

  Jaguars | Leonard Fournette confident for Week 7    Thu Oct 19, 09:27 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) said he will 'most definitely' be healthy enough to play against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7, but he added that it will be up to the coaching staff to decide his status.

Footballguys view: Fournette isn't a lock to play, but if he's active, he's a lock for our lineups.

  Titans | Coach worried about DeMarco Murray?    Thu Oct 19, 09:08 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Khalfani Muhammad will likely be signed from the practice squad if RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is unable to play against the Cleveland Browns in Week 7, head coach Mike Mularkey said Thursday, Oct. 19.

Footballguys view: This is a different tone than when Murray's hamstring issue came up earlier this year. Even if Murray can go, Derrick Henry is clearly the better play, and Henry should be considered a strong RB1 if Murray is inactive.

  Saints | Drew Brees owns Packers over career    Thu Oct 19, 08:34 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has posted a 114.3 QB Rating over his career against the Green Bay Packers, his second-highest such mark versus any opponent whom he's faced more than four times. In six career games opposite the Packers, Brees has completed 168-of-250 passes (67.2 percent) for 2,215 yards, to go with 17 touchdowns compared to only two interceptions.

  Dolphins | DeVante Parker feeling 'much better'    Thu Oct 19, 08:18 PM

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) is 'feeling much better,' according to a source, who also would not speculate, however, whether Parker had progressed to the point where he can play in the team's Week 7 game Sunday, Oct. 22, against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: If Parker can go, he still won't be a reliable play, but he will also take some of the sleeper appeal from Kenny Stills.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers undergoes surgery    Thu Oct 19, 07:30 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) underwent surgery to repair his collarbone Thursday, Oct. 19, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Rodgers hasn't yet been declared done for the year, but his season is likely over. The Packers haven't even put him on Injured Reserve yet...and even if he could come back it wouldn't be until the very end of the regular season.

  49ers | George Kittle practices in full    Thu Oct 19, 07:19 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (back, elbow) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

Footballguys view: Kittle is an interesting TE streamer in deeper leagues. He's been doing some good things for the 49ers, and he's got chemistry with fellow rookie C.J. Beathard (new starting quarterback) from their days in college at Iowa.

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (calf) was back at practice Thursday, Oct. 19, and got in a full session.

Footballguys view: Thomas has a bruise on his calf and was wearing a compression sleeve on his leg today at practice. With Emmanuel Sanders already being declared out for the game against the Chargers on Sunday, Thomas should be the focal point of the Broncos passing game.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon limited again Thursday    Thu Oct 19, 06:50 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Oct. 19.

Footballguys view: Gordon should be good to go against the Broncos on Sunday. The Giants were the first team to have success on the ground against Denver in 2017, and perhaps Gordon can duplicate that. We like him as a low-end RB1 in Week 7.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen limited in practice Thursday    Thu Oct 19, 06:42 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (shoulder) was added to the injury report Thursday, Oct. 19, getting in a limited practice.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise practices in full Thursday    Thu Oct 19, 06:38 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 19, one day after he was a limited participant.

Footballguys view: Prosise should be back on the field for Seattle this week. He'll serve as the pass-catching back for Seattle as they travel to play the Giants in Week 7. We aren't projecting him as anything more than a 'what the heck' flex for fantasy owners this week.
