Latest Player Updates

The Washington Redskins D/ST allowed just three field goals in a Week 7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, recording two sacks and forcing one interception in poor weather conditions.

Fantasy Impact: The weather contributed to what was an ugly 9-0 game on Sunday, but the Washington defense did their part in slowing down the 49ers and their high-powered offense. The nine points allowed were their fewest of the season, though they face a tougher task against the Vikings in Minnesota next week.

Micah Hyde had five solo tackles and also took the Dolphins onside kick attempt to the house in a 31-21 win over the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Hyde had a quiet game until he came up big in a crucial moment. The Dolphins had a chance to tie or take the lead had they recovered an onside kick, but Hyde had other ideas and ran the ball into the endzone.

Washington wide receiver Paul Richardson could not haul in his only target in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: While poor weather conditions contributed to his lackluster showing on Sunday, Richardson now has zero catches on five targets over his last two games. Until he provides some kind of production, he can't be trusted in any format.

Marlon Humphrey recorded five total tackles, one TFL, and a scoop and score to seal a 30-16 win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Humphries has had an under the radar season, with a solid floor in each game. However, his low upside and touchdown dependency means that you can leave him on the waiver wire.

Joey Bosa recorded six total tackles, one TFL, two sacks, three QB hits, and a forced fumble against the Titans. The Chargers still lost 23-20.

Fantasy Impact: After going without a sack last week against the Steelers, Bosa made up for it with two on Ryan Tannehill. He a surefire play against the Bears next week.

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed 20 times for 81 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: Peterson did not have a ton of success in poor weather conditions on Sunday, but the new regime in Washington is making it clear that it wants the veteran running back a focul point of the offense.

Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught one pass for 11 yards in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: McLaurin's final line was impacted by the weather conditions and the Washington gameplan, as Case Keenum threw just 12 passes on the day. McLaurin will face off against a tough Vikings defense next week, but the weather will not be a factor since the game will be played in Minnesota's domed stadium.

Washington quarterback Case Keenum completed nine of his 12 passes for 77 yards in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He did not throw any touchdown passes or interceptions.

Fantasy Impact: Keenum was barely part of the gameplan on Sunday due to bad weather conditions in what ended up being a very ugly 9-0 loss to the 49ers. The new regime in Washington is committed to running the ball, but Sunday's box score was significantly impacted by the weather. Keenum and Washington face off against the Vikings and their stingy defense next week in Minnesota.

The Los Angeles Chargers D/ST allowed 403 yards and had two sacks and one interception in a 23-20 loss to the Tennessee Titans Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The Chargers D/ST yielded more than 300 yards to Ryan Tannehill en route to a 23-20 loss Sunday. This unit is struggling and a date with a sorry Chicago offense next week should help.

Giants tight end Rhett Ellison caught both of his targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: The touchdown was Ellison's first of the season, and his value should be fairly limited going forward with the return of Evan Engram to the lineup. Through seven games, Ellison has 12 catches for 109 yards and one touchdown.

Chase McLaughlin was 2-for-2 on field goal and 2-for-2 on extra point attempts in the Chargers' 23-20 loss to the Titans Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: McLaughlin had a solid day Sunday and continues to fill in for injured Michael Badgley (groin).

Giants wide receiver Cody Latimer caught four of his five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: The Giants are rotating receivers with Sterling Shepard out, and Latimer is just one of the options seeing targets. Over the last three weeks, he has just four catches for 33 yards on seven targets.

Virgil Green brought in his lone target for nine yards in the Chargers' 23-20 loss to the Titans Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Green is not a viable fantasy option and is used primarily as a blocking TE.

Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas made all three of his extra point tries but missed his only field goal attempt in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Rosas has attempted just six field goals through the first seven weeks of the season, but he has already missed two of them. He has connected on all 16 of his extra point tries, but his fantasy value remains limited by an inconsistent Giants offense.

Hunter Henry had six receptions for 97 yards on eight targets in the Chargers' 23-20 loss to the Titans Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Henry has posted strong performances in both weeks since his return to the lineup. He was second on the team in targets, yards, and receptions Sunday. He is a strong TE going forward.

Austin Ekeler rushed five times for seven yards and had seven receptions for 118 yards and one touchdown in the Chargers' 23-20 loss to the Titans Sunday. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Impact: Ekeler had a big fantasy day through his receiving numbers Sunday. He continues to have value even with Melvin Gordon back. Consider him a flex option each week.

The New York Giants D/ST blocked a punt and recovered it for a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals, but they also allowed 27 points while recording just two sacks.

Fantasy Impact: The New York Giants D/ST remains a work in progress, but they have rewarded fantasy owners with touchdowns in back-to-back weeks. They have now allowed at least 27 points in six of their seven games this season, and things will not get much easier when they take on the Lions in Detroit next week.

Mike Williams had four receptions for 47 yards on six targets in the Chargers' 23-20 loss to the Titans Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Williams had a disappointing game Sunday with Austin Ekeler and Hunter Henry leading the Chargers in receiving. With Henry back in the lineup, Williams is entering WR3/flex territory.

Melvin Gordon rushed 16 times for 32 yards and had two receptions for a loss of three yards and one touchdown in the Chargers' 23-20 loss to the Titans Sunday. He was targeted three times and lost one fumble.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon was held in check by a tough Tennessee run defense Sunday. His day was made by a short receiving touchdown, but he fumbled on the goal line with just seconds left to lose the game for Los Angeles. Owners need to be patient as he works his way back to RB1 level.

Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton caught both of his targets for 28 yards in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Even with Sterling Shepard out, Slayton is not making the most of his role in the New York offense. Over the last two weeks, he has just five catches for 60 total yards. Next week, Slayton and the Giants will face off against a tough Detroit defense.
