John Brown photo 33. John Brown WR - BUF (vs . PHI)
He's seen at least five targets in every game, but there's no way his 73.3 percent catch-rate will hold strong for the rest of the year. He's going to need more targets in order to remain consistent in fantasy football, but knowing he's tallied at least 51 yards in each of their six games, you kind of have to play him until he gives you a reason not to. The Eagles cornerbacks are definitely not a reason to fade a wide receiver anyway, as they've allowed an NFL-high six wide receivers to score 20-plus PPR points against them this year. By comparison, the Bears have allowed just five wide receivers to reach 10 PPR points. The Eagles also play a lot of man coverage, which is where Brown has straight up dominated the competition, allowing Josh Allen to post a QB Rating of nearly 110.0 when targeting in man coverage. Somehow, seven wide receivers have been able to post 100-plus yards against the Eagles, so go ahead and fire up Brown as a high-end WR3 with upside in this matchup.

Stefon Diggs photo 35. Stefon Diggs WR - MIN (vs . WAS)
Knowing that Adam Thielen won't play definitely helps us feel better about Diggs' fantasy floor. Do we really believe he would've finished with eight targets had Thielen not exited last week's game so early? The Redskins were without Josh Norman last week, and though some will be paying attention to whether or not he's available this week, it shouldn't matter all that much, as he's been pretty terrible in coverage since the start of last year. With him out of the lineup, we saw a mixture of Quinton Dunbar, Fabian Moreau, and Jimmy Moreland for the Redskins; three cornerbacks who wouldn't be starting on a good team. Even with the mess of a game last week, the Redskins secondary has allowed wide receivers 2.08 PPR points per target this year, which includes a 73.1 percent completion-rate to them. That's important because there will be limited pass attempts out of Cousins this week, so Diggs will need to make the most of them. The Redskins have already allowed three wide receivers to post 25-plus PPR points against them this year despite no receiver topping 10 targets. Diggs should be in fantasy lineups as a low-end WR1 with Thielen out of the mix.

Melvin Gordon photo 36. Melvin Gordon RB - LAC (at CHI)
This backfield has been a disaster since Gordon returned. The two have combined for just 109 yards on 49 carries (2.2 yards per carry) and have yet to find the end zone on the ground. Their value has all come through the air, as they've combined for a ridiculous 34 receptions for 252 yards and two touchdowns in three games. They are getting their starting left tackle back, which should help, as should the matchup against the Bears, who've seemingly hit rock-bottom. Over their last two weeks without defensive tackle Akiem Hicks, they've allowed the Raiders and Saints (without Alvin Kamara) to rack up 277 yards and five touchdowns on 63 carries (4.40 yards per carry). To give you how drastic that change has been, the Bears had allowed five rushing touchdowns over their previous 20 games. This is not the same defense that opponents once feared. It also doesn't hurt that they've allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game (13.3/game) through the air to running backs, and that's despite not allowing a receiving touchdown to them. You should keep Gordon in your lineup as a solid RB2 with touchdown upside knowing he's received 73.5 percent of the team's carries since his return.

Carlos Hyde photo 37. Carlos Hyde RB - HOU (vs . OAK)
Courtland Sutton photo 38. Courtland Sutton WR - DEN (at IND)
We're now seven weeks into the NFL season and Sutton sits as the No. 10 wide receiver in PPR formats. Keep in mind that's despite Flacco throwing one or zero touchdowns in 6-of-7 games. He's yet to see 10 targets in a game but has seen at least seven targets in every game. If the Broncos are set to deal Sanders, it would make sense for him to be not put in harm's way this week, which could make Sutton worth even more. There have been just five receivers who've seen at least seven targets against the Colts this year. The finishes of those receivers? WR3-WR7-WR7-WR12-WR26. Those are some great odds for Sutton this week against the Colts zone-heavy coverage. On 25 targets against zone this year, Sutton has caught 17 balls for 173 yards and two touchdowns. He should be in lineups as a WR2 who has top-12 upside in this game.

Joe Mixon photo 46. Joe Mixon RB - CIN (at LAR)
What a horrendous ride it's been for the third-year running back, as the offensive line crumbling has been worse than anyone could've imagined. He was without three starters on the offensive line last week, and that's not even including the two offensive linemen they lost prior to the season beginning. Over the last two weeks, he's totaled 18 carries. Even worse, he's totaled just 12 yards on those carries. The worst news is that they've regressed his usage in the passing game. After seeing 15 targets over the first four games, he's seen just six targets over the last three games. Now onto the Rams in a game they're double-digit underdogs, it doesn't appear to be a winning combination. There have been five running backs who've totaled at least 18 carries against them, and each of those running backs were top-20 PPR options. The issue's that Mixon has reached that number just once this year, and it was against the Cardinals in a closely fought game. The Rams have allowed just 3.70 yards per carry on the year, so it's required volume to get it done against them. The good news is that they've allowed six rushing touchdowns, which ranks as the seventh-most in the league. This all comes down to whether you believe the Bengals will keep this game somewhat close because the Bengals drop back to pass 76 percent of the time when they trail big, which is the sixth-highest mark in the league. Knowing Mixon has run just 29 routes over the last two weeks (ranks 23rd among running backs) is the biggest concern. He cannot be considered anything more than a mediocre RB3 with his usage and projected gamescript right now.

Marvin Jones photo 52. Marvin Jones WR - DET (vs . NYG)
That's going to pad the stats a bit, eh? After his four-touchdown performance, Jones currently sits as the No. 16 wide receiver in PPR formats, ahead of his teammate Golladay. That doesn't even begin to tell the whole story, as his finishes this year are WR55-WR52-WR11-WR33-WR74-WR1. That's a rather large variety of outcomes, but he's been outside the top-50 more than he's been inside the top-30. He has seen at least five targets in each of the last five games, so he should at least be in the WR3/4 conversation most weeks, especially when it's a good matchup, like the one he has in Week 8 against the Giants. They've allowed 10 wide receivers to finish as top-40 options against them, including five of them to finish as top-16 wide receivers, including the Cowboys No. 2 receiver Michael Gallup who tagged them for 7/158/0. The bottom line is that this is no matchup to run from, especially if the Giants decide to shadow Golladay with Janoris Jenkins, though I don't think that happens. Jones obviously comes with some volatility, but he should be a startable WR3 in this game.

Zach Ertz photo 55. Zach Ertz TE - PHI (at BUF)
Alshon Jeffery photo 56. Alshon Jeffery WR - PHI (at BUF)
It's official - the Eagles offense is among the most frustrating in all of football. After seeing at least seven targets in each game he'd played, Jeffery saw just five targets against the Cowboys in Week 7 leading to a two-catch, 38-yard performance. He gets no consolation prize this week against the Bills, as he's going to have a date with Tre'Davious White. He's one of the better cornerbacks in football, allowing just 17-of-30 passing in his coverage for 234 scoreless yards, as well as intercepting three passes through six games. If DeSean Jackson were on track to play, it would make a bit more sense to like Jeffery, but this is not a matchup to get excited about. He's nothing more than a low-end WR3/high-end WR4 who you can bench if you have an option you're considering.

Terry McLaurin photo 57. Terry McLaurin WR - WAS (at MIN)
It was a very disappointing game for McLaurin last week, but if you watched the game, you know why he didn't perform. The field was a giant slip-and-slide with mud, and that's going to affect a route-runner like him. Now heading out to Minnesota, we at least know he'll be playing in a dome this week. The Vikings have allowed 14 different wide receivers to finish as top-50 options against them through seven weeks. While top-50 isn't necessarily startable, it highlights the fantasy floor they've allowed to opposing receivers. That's an average of two per game. Nine of those wide receivers have finished as top-32 options, which is absolutely inside the startable range. While many will point to Kenny Golladay as a point against McLaurin this week, but I'd point to his two targets as the reason, not the matchup, as Marvin Jones seemed to do just fine. Knowing McLaurin has seen a league-leading 50 percent of his team's air yards (which is ridiculous, as no other wide receiver is over 42 percent), you can lock him in for volume in this game. In non-mudslide games, McLaurin has seen at least seven targets in every game. Keep him in lineups as a WR2 this week.

Frank Gore photo 67. Frank Gore RB - BUF (vs . PHI)
Gore managed to out-touch Singletary 12 to 8, but it didn't amount to much for either of them. Oddly enough, it was the lowest volume and production Gore had since Week 1. Let's write that up as a trap game coming off the bye, shall we? The Eagles aren't nearly as good of a matchup, as the 3.32 yards per carry they've allowed ranks as the second-lowest number in football. Prior to Ezekiel Elliott smashing them for 111 yards and a touchdown on Sunday night football, they'd yet to allow a running back more than 63 yards on the ground. He was also the first starting running back who was able to average more than 2.87 yards per carry against them, which included a sample size of Aaron Jones, Le'Veon Bell, Dalvin Cook, Kerryon Johnson, and Devonta Freeman. It doesn't help that they were down to just two linebackers last week, something that could be a problem moving forward. Singletary getting 35-40 percent of the touches is going to be problematic for Gore's fantasy floor, because we'll see those 10-12-touch games that are brutal when he's not involved in the passing game. Gore should be considered a low-floor and low-ceiling RB4-type option in this game.

Adrian Peterson photo 71. Adrian Peterson RB - WAS (at MIN)
Over the two games under Bill Callahan, Peterson has now totaled a massive 43 carries. He has just two targets, which really limits his appeal, especially when the gamescript is expected to go south in a hurry this week. The Redskins are projected for just 12 points in this road game, which is the exact opposite of good correlation with a two-down running back. There have been just three running backs who've been able to post double-digit PPR games against the Vikings, and two of them scored receiving touchdowns, while the third one was Aaron Jones. Outside of Jones, there hasn't been a running back who's totaled more than 53 yards on the ground against the Vikings this year. They've allowed just 3.85 yards per carry and just one touchdown on 144 carries this season. Many will want to follow the volume under Callahan and say Peterson is startable because of it, but this is your friendly reminder that the Redskins won their game against the Dolphins and lost just 9-0 against the 49ers, which is what allowed them to run the ball that much. Peterson is nothing more than a high-end RB4 with a limited ceiling against his former team.

Gerald Everett photo 72. Gerald Everett TE - LAR (vs . CIN)
He's now seen at least five targets in four straight games, and has averaged a robust 8.5 targets in that stretch. Is Everett an every-week lock-and-load play? With that volume, it's hard to say no. He's finished as a top-eight tight end in three of the last four weeks. The Bengals have not faced many targets this year, as just one tight end has totaled more than four targets against them. That tight end was Mark Andrews, who turned eight targets into 6/99/0. So, while it's true the Bengals have allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to tight ends, they've allowed the fourth-most yards per target. It's pretty easy to look good when you see just 4.9 targets per game to the position. With Everett's spike in volume, you have to ride him right now, though you have to understand the volatility in this offense, as there are many mouths to feed with not a lot of pass attempts expected. He should be considered a low-end TE1.

Miles Sanders photo 73. Miles Sanders RB - PHI (at BUF)
Golden Tate photo 74. Golden Tate WR - NYG (at DET)
He's been a favorite of Jones since entering the lineup, amassing 26 targets over three games, though it has helped that Sterling Shepard has been out of the lineup. Tate has been good, totaling six catches in each of the last two games with yardage totals of 102 and 80 yards. He now gets to play against his former team. He's going to be matching up with Justin Coleman in the slot, a cornerback who's done a solid job for the Lions this year. He's allowed just 4.81 yards per target while covering the slot which is among the better marks in football, though the silver lining for Tate is that he's allowed three touchdown on 37 targets in coverage. Of the top-six performances the Lions have allowed to wide receivers this year, four of them were to slot-heavy receivers, including Larry Fitzgerald, Nelson Agholor, Keenan Allen, and Olabisi Johnson. Wide receiver groups have averaged 24.3 targets per game against the Lions, so knowing that Tate has 26-of-62 receiver targets (41.9 percent) since entering the lineup is pretty big. Keep him in lineups as a solid WR3 whose floor will dip a bit when Shepard returns, though he has the better role for production in this offense.

Mike Williams photo 76. Mike Williams WR - LAC (at CHI)
His targets (6) came back down to realistic territory last week, which is a bit of a downer, but the good news is that he's seen eight red zone targets this year. He's only caught one of them, and it wasn't for a touchdown, so positive regression should catch up at some point. As a gauge, there are 13 other receivers who have as many red zone targets, and 11 have scored at least two touchdowns. The Bears cornerback duo of Kyle Fuller and Prince Amukamara have not been very good this year, though they have been better against big receivers the last few years while struggling with premier route runners. Look at the big performances they've allowed this year: Emmanuel Sanders, Paul Richardson, Michael Thomas, Terry McLaurin, and Stefon Diggs. None of them are big-bodied wide receivers who are the box-out with my body types, but pure route runners. Williams is likely to take a backseat to Allen this week and should be considered a middling WR4 who likely needs a touchdown in order to avoid being a bust.

Ronald Jones II photo 83. Ronald Jones II RB - TB (at TEN)
Coming out of the bye week, this is likely our last chance to hope for a workhorse out of this backfield. That's the time you can make dramatic changes if you want to, so here's to hoping. The two split just 12 carries in London and neither of them saw a single target. You'd think an offense that's averaging 28.8 points per game (4th in the NFL) would produce some useful fantasy performances, right? The Titans aren't a great matchup for running backs who aren't involved in the passing game, as they've allowed just 10 rushing touchdowns over the 23 games under Mike Vrabel. They have faced a league-high 61 targets to running backs, which has propelled them to allow the 16th-most fantasy points to running backs. Breaking it down a bit further, they've allowed the 12th-fewest fantasy points on the ground to running backs, but the third-most points through the air. Knowing that Barber has nine targets on the year while Jones has six, this matchup can be a problem for fantasy owners. The fact that opposing running backs have combined for just 19.7 carries per game doesn't bode well for a timeshare. Both of these running backs should be considered middling RB4s with minimal upside and low floors.

Corey Davis photo 86. Corey Davis WR - TEN (vs . TB)
Targeting your best receiver? Who would think of such a thing? Despite throwing the ball just 29 times, Tannehill managed to target Davis a season-high seven times where he caught six of them for 80 yards and a touchdown. It was his second top-10 performance of the year and now he gets to play a Bucs defense that has allowed 44.1 PPR points per game to wide receivers, which is the second-most in the league. They have faced 23.8 targets per game against them, so it's natural to expect them to allow some production, but allowing 12 receivers to reach 10.9 or more PPR points through six games? There have been eight wide receivers who've been targeted more than six times, and every one of them scored at least 13.1 PPR points, with four of them scoring 23-plus points and finishing as top-six wide receivers. Knowing the Bucs have stymied opponents on the ground (2.72 yards per carry), the Titans will be forced to lean on the pass. Knowing that Davis saw 27 percent of the team's air yards from Tannehill, he should be safe bet for WR3 production this week with upside among the top-12.

Jarvis Landry photo 87. Jarvis Landry WR - CLE (at NE)
Auden Tate photo 88. Auden Tate WR - CIN (at LAR)
Since John Ross left the lineup, Tate has seen at least six targets in each game, including double-digit targets in two of them. Did you know Tate is a top-36 targeted wide receiver through seven weeks? He actually has more targets than Adam Thielen and T.Y. Hilton, and that's despite seeing just two targets in Week 2 and not playing in Week 1. He's totaled at least 50 yards in 4-of-5 games, so his floor has been stable. This week will likely be a down one, though, as he's going to see a lot of Jalen Ramsey in coverage. Ramsey just battled with Julio Jones in Week 7 and though Jones was able to get some production in, Ramsey didn't make it easy. It seems somewhat unlikely that the Rams would have Ramsey shadow Tate, but it's certainly possible with how much he's been targeted. The risk of that happening is enough of a reason to keep Tate out of lineups this week. He's not completely off the table for those strapped at the wide receiver position, but he's nothing more than a risky WR4 this week.

Darius Slayton photo 104. Darius Slayton WR - NYG (at DET)
It was odd to see Slayton rank fourth among Giants wide receivers in targets last week, but he did play 68 snaps, so his role isn't in jeopardy. The Lions are likely to be without Darius Slay, their top cornerback, which means they'll be starting Rashaan Melvin and Mike Ford in coverage. Melvin has been phenomenal this year, allowing just a 55.3 percent completion-rate in his coverage and has yet to allow a touchdown on 38 targets in coverage. Ford hasn't seen much action but going back to last year, we saw him allow 28-of-34 passing for 428 yards and a touchdown in his coverage. Slayton is on the fantasy radar, but barely, as he's presented no stability to this point and hasn't topped four receptions in any game. You can find better hail-mary options.

Cole Beasley photo 105. Cole Beasley WR - BUF (vs . PHI)
He caught his first touchdown of the season last week and has now totaled at least 9.0 PPR points in 5-of-6 games this year while seeing an average of 7.3 targets per game. He's not a sexy play by any means, but if you're strapped with injuries/bye weeks, he's offered a high floor for those in need. The Eagles have allowed eight different wide receivers at least 15 PPR points, though none of them have been slot receivers. The biggest games for slot-heavy receivers against them have been Geronimo Allison's 3/52/1 performance, Trey Quinn's 4/33/1, and Danny Amendola's 4/37/0. As you can see, no slot-heavy receiver has totaled more than four receptions against them, though that's likely due to the perimeter wide receivers having phenomenal matchups. We should expect Brown to be featured while Beasley would be a bit more utilized if the Eagles threw up points on the Bills defense, which is not what we're expecting. Because of that, he's just an average WR4 with a limited ceiling, though it's important to note he's been a top-40 PPR receiver in 4-of-6 games, which is high-end WR4 or better.

The Chargers have limited plays to their opponents, while the Bears have lacked plays in general. Cohen carries value in PPR formats, but this is a game where David Montgomery should be fed early and often, which can phase Cohen out, especially if Montgomery has success. With oddsmakers expecting a Bears win, this could be a game to fade Cohen.
