Latest Player Updates


Saints RB Ty Montgomery carried the ball one time for a four-yard gain and failed to catch his only target in Monday night's Week 7 win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Montgomery is a non-factor in fantasy while Alvin Kamara is healthy. He should linger on the wire.

Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith caught 1-of-3 targets for 11 yards in Monday night's Week 7 win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Smith made his 2021 debut on Monday night but you wouldn't know it from his stat line. He could eventually get going, but there isn't much volume to go around.

Saints TE Adam Trautman caught all three of his targets for 36 yards in Monday night's Week 7 win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Sadly, this was one of Trautman's better games of the year in fantasy. All of his offseason hype went for naught barring an unlikely turnaround. He gets Tampa Bay in Week 8.

Saints WR Marquez Callaway caught 3-of-7 targets for 32 yards in Monday night's Week 7 win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Callaway logged seven targets, his second-most of the year. He's now logged at least seven looks in consecutive games. However, he did not do much with them in this outing. Callaway will be in play next week against Tampa Bay.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 20 times for 51 yards and caught 10-of-11 targets for 128 yards and one touchdown in Monday night's Week 7 win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: It has been a while since Kamara had a Kamara game receiving. We got one on Monday night. Kamara logged 30 touches for 179 total yards and a score. He gets an exploitable matchup with Tampa Bay next week.

Saints QB Jameis Winston completed 19-of-35 passes for 222 yards and one touchdown while adding another 40 yards on eight rushing attempts in Monday night's Week 7 win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Winston played a solid game but was not spectacular by any means in a favorable matchup. His 40 yards rushing helped his fantasy managers in a game they likely expected more from his arm. Winston has a revenge game next week against the Buccaneers.

Tyler Lockett caught two passes for 12 yards against the Saints on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Lockett caught just two passes for the second straight week with Geno Smith undercenter.

Category: Game Recaps


D.K. Metcalf caught two passes for 96 yards and a touchdown against the Saints on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: On the second drive of the game, Metcalf caught an 84-yard touchdown with a couple of broken tackles along the way to open up the scoring. He did not see another target till the fourth quarter. The Seahawks will have to find ways to get Metcalf the ball no matter who is undercenter.

Rashaad Penny took six carries for nine yards against the Saints on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: In Penny's first game action since Week 1, he was completely held in check against New Orleans.

Alex Collins rushed for 35 yards on 16 carries against the Saints on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Collins also added one catch for nine yards. He had a long run of six yards and was met behind the line of scrimmage on almost every run against New Orleans.

Geno Smith completed 12-of-22 passes for 167 yards and one touchdown against the Saints on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Smith completed an 84-yard touchdown to D.K. Metcalf on the second drive of the game. He compiled just 83 passing yards the rest of the game. It will be worth monitoring this week to see if the Seahawks stick with Smith against Jacksonville on Sunday.

The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST allowed 33 points on 442 total yards while intercepting one pass and not recording a sack in Sunday's loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST likely would have given up even more points on Sunday if not for the Las Vegas offense playing conservatively and running out of the clock for much of the fourth quarter. This unit has failed to record a sack in two straight games and only has 11 sacks through the first seven games of the season. Even against the 0-7 Detroit Lions in Week 8, this is not a unit fantasy managers should trust.

Eagles kicker Jake Elliott made both of his extra point tries but did not attempt a field goal in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: Elliott missed his only attempt in Week 6 and has not made a field goal since Week 5 against the Panthers. Through seven games, Elliott is now 7-for-9 on field goal attempts and a perfect 14-for-14 on extra point tries.

Eagles running back Boston Scott rushed seven times for 24 yards and a touchdown and caught one of his two targets for five yards in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: Scott hadn't received any carries through the first six weeks of the season, but he was pressed into action on Sunday after Miles Sanders went down with an ankle injury. It sounds like Sanders could miss at least one week with his injury, and Scott could split time with Kenneth Gainwell and potentially Jordan Howard in Week 8 against the Lions.

The Houston Texans D/ST recorded one interception, a safety, and four sacks in the team's 31-5 Week 7 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: The Texans D/ST surprisingly produced a strong effort against a red-hot Cardinals team. Despite the impressive numbers, they need to be left on the waiver wire for Week 8 against the Rams.

Texans kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn kicked a 53-yard field goal in Houston's loss to Arizona. He did not have any other attempts.

Fantasy Impact: Fairbairn has not been a serviceable kicking option for fantasy purposes this season, though the potential return of Tyrod Taylor for Week 8 should open up more scoring opportunities for the Texans. Nevertheless, fantasy managers are better off looking elsewhere for kickers.

Danny Amendola caught 3-of-5 targets for 17 yards in the Texans' Week 7 blowout loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Amendola made it back to the field after missing the last four weeks with a hamstring issue. As long as he can stay healthy, his production could rise with the potential return of Tyrod Taylor in Week 8 versus the Rams. Regardless, Amendola is off the fantasy radar.

Nico Collins hauled in 2-of-5 targets for 28 yards in Sunday afternoon's loss to Arizona.

Fantasy Impact: Collins actually led the Texans in receiving yards this week, despite being tied for last in receptions among all pass-catchers. If Tyrod Taylor makes his long-awaited return next week versus the Rams, Collins could serve as a sneaky low-end WR5 for that matchup.

David Johnson rushed seven times for 25 yards and hauled in 5-of-6 targets for 27 yards in Houston's Week 7 defeat to Arizona.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson led the team in scrimmage yards in his revenge game versus the Cardinals. He additionally tied Brandin Cooks for the most receptions on offense. Despite serving as one of the lone bright spots for the Texans this week, Johnson cannot be trusted in fantasy lineups in Week 8 against the Rams.

Brandin Cooks hauled in 5-of-7 targets for 21 yards in Sunday afternoon's blowout defeat to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Cooks led the Texans in targets and receptions, but recorded a season-low 21 yards, as Davis Mills averaged merely 4.2 yards per attempt. The good news for fantasy owners is that Tyrod Taylor is targeting a return for next week's contest. Cooks would likely be elevated back to WR2 status in that scenario, despite the daunting matchup versus Jalen Ramsey and the Rams.
