Fantasy Impact: Forbath was cut earlier in the season by the Cowboys. He’ll come in and compete with rookie Sam Sloman, who has now missed a kick (either field goal or PAT) in five of six games this season.

WR Sterling Shepard (toe) returned to practice Tuesday and could play in Thursday’s contest against the Eagles. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Shepard is expected to return from injured reserve on Tuesday and could play Thursday Night Football against the Eagles. He hasn’t played since Week 2’s loss to the Bears due to a toe injury. Shepard will give Daniel Jones another weapon and most likely split targets with Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Evan Engram if active for Thursday’s game.

After missing Week 6 due to injury, Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) is scheduled to take part in practice Wednesday, per head coach Mike Tomlin. (Source: Brooke Pryor on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is big news for Johnson, who had been missing Wednesday practices all season with a minor toe injury. Apparently he has overcome both his toe and back injuries enough to be a go at practice tomorrow. He could still be listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Titans, but Johnson is certainly trending in the right direction.

Chase Edmonds rushed five times for 23 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for an additional six yards in Week 6 against Dallas.

Fantasy Impact: It was a positive gamescript the entire night for Arizona, and they just kept feeding Kenyan Drake, who finished the game with 164 yards and two touchdowns. Expect Edmonds to be more involved when the Cardinals take on the Seahawks in Week 7, when he'll likely be utilized much more for his pass-catching ability than he was in a Week 6 blowout. Consider Edmonds a flex play next weekend.

Christian Kirk saw just three targets in Week 6, but managed to turn that into 86 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-10 win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Kirk took a flip pass from Kyler Murray for his first touchdown, and then got loose deep for his second TD of 80 yards. He's now averaging 82 yards and a score in his last two games, and seems to be developing a nice chemistry with Murray. Kirk should be considered a WR3 in a matchup with the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7.

DeAndre Hopkins caught just 2-of-8 targets for 73 yards in a Week 6 win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Kyler Murray completed just nine passes the entire game, so this was a weird game for all the Cardinals pass-catchers. Hopkins managed to salvage his night with a 60-yard catch-and-run, otherwise it would have been a real dud. Look for the All-Pro wideout to redeem himself in a very favorable matchup in Week 7 against the Seahawks.

Bengals wide receiver John Ross recently approached the team about trading him ahead of the league's trade deadline, according to a report from NFL insider Mike Garafolo. Garafolo adds that Ross's agent confirmed that they have inquired about a trade but that those discussions have not gone very far as of yet. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ross is a former first round pick but has just two receptions for 17 yards while playing in three of the team's six games this season. In Week 6, he played exactly one snap on offense. He is still just 24 years old and boasts elite speed, but his production in Cincinnati has been inconsistent at best through his first four seasons. He is a free agent after the 2020 season.

The Miami Dolphins are naming Tua Tagovailoa their starting quarterback, according to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter. Ryan Fitzpatrick will back up Tagovailoa when he starts in Week 8 against the Rams. The Jets have a bye week in Week 7. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tagovailoa was the fifth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, but he was also recovering from a serious hip injury during his final season at Alabama and watched veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick lead the Dolphins to a 3-3 record through the team's first six games. Tagovailoa made his debut against the Jets in mop-up duty in Week 6, and he will be a popular waiver-wire target in all formats this week given his potential.


Kenyan Drake rushed 20 times for 164 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-10 win over the Cowboys on Monday Night Football in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: Drake popped a long 69-yard touchdown run to seal it on Monday night, but also looked great throughout the game. He came just two yards shy of his career-high in rush yards in a game (166). As long as the Cardinals stay in games, Drake should continue to be the feature back, with Chase Edmonds operating in a change-of-pace role on passing situations. Drake played on 68% of the snaps Monday night, which has been close to his average in every game this season. Fire him up as a solid RB2 in a matchup against the Seahawks in Week 7.

Cowboys wide receiver Noah Brown caught both of his targets for 15 yards in Monday's loss for the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Brown is buried on the depth chart in Dallas and has little value in fantasy unless there are multiple injuries to Cowboys pass catchers.

Cowboys kicker Greg Zuerlein made one short field goal and missed one kick from more than 50 yards out in Monday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He also made his only extra point try.

Fantasy Impact: Zuerlein's field goal ultimately would have made little difference in the 38-10 loss, but it is worth noting that he is now 0-for-2 on field goal attempts of longer than 50 yards this season. He is not currently in any danger of losing his job, but his value did take a slight hit with Dak Prescott being lost for the season.

Kyler Murray completed just 9-of-24 passes for 188 yards in Week 6, but managed to throw two touchdowns and run for 74 yards and another score in a big 38-10 win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: After completing 20+ passes in each of his first five games, Murray looked a bit off to start the game on Monday night against Dallas. Even though he ended up completing a season-low nine passes, he still managed to make some big plays, leading to an eventual blowout. The Cardinals take on the Seahawks in Week 7, and Murray should be considered a top-3 fantasy quarterback option in that one.

The Dallas Cowboys D/ST struggled again on Monday night, allowing 38 points on 438 total yards to the Arizona Cardinals while recording one sack and not forcing any turnovers.

Fantasy Impact: Even with linebacker Leighton Vander Esch returning on Monday, the Dallas defense continued to struggle. They have now allowed 36 or more points in four of their last five games and have struggled to get to the quarterback and force turnovers.

Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson caught two of his three targets for 10 yards in Monday's loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson has turned into a solid reserve wide receiver for the Cowboys, but fantasy managers can't trust him for production given his spot on the depth chart behind Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and CeeDee Lamb.

Category: Game Recaps


Cowboys running back Tony Pollard rushed 10 times for 31 yards and caught two of his four targets for nine yards in Monday's loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Pollard's 12 touches were his most of the season, and he saw the field for a decent stretch in the first half after Ezekiel Elliott lost his second fumble of the night. Pollard is still unlikely to provide much value to fantasy managers unless Elliott gets injured, however.

Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz caught four of his five targets for 35 yards in Monday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: After catching just one pass for six yards in Week 5, Schultz had only a slightly better performance in Week 6. The Cowboys threw the ball 54 times on Monday, and that trend is unlikely to continue, which could mean fewer targets overall for Schultz.

Category: Game Recaps


Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup caught two of his six targets for just 23 yards in Monday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: The Cowboys lost 38-10 on Monday and threw the ball 54 times, but Gallup managed just two receptions on six targets in his first full game working with new quarterback Andy Dalton. Dalton looked rusty on Monday, and it's likely that he settles in a bit more as the season goes on, but this was a disappointing first start.

Category: Game Recaps


Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb caught seven of his 10 targets for 64 yards in Monday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Andy Dalton looked Lamb's way often on Monday night, though it is telling that the team had to throw the ball 54 times in a 38-10 loss. Dalton struggled on Monday, and fantasy managers will have to hope that he and the Cowboys turn things around so that the Dallas pass-catchers can continue to produce consistently.

Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper caught seven of his 10 targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in Monday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Cooper bounced back after catching just two passes for 23 yards last week, but his final line may not have looked as rosy if not for a late touchdown with the Cowboys already trailing 31-3 on the night.

Category: Game Recaps


Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 12 times for 49 yards and caught eight of his 11 targets for 31 yards in Monday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He also lost two fumbles.

Fantasy Impact: Elliott still saw close to his usual workload on Monday, but he found himself on the bench in favor of Tony Pollard for a short period of time after his second fumble. Elliott has yet to rush for over 100 yards in a game this season, but he does have six total touchdowns and already has 32 receptions on the year.
