Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 With Kadarius Toney and Sterling Shepard both out in Week 7, Slayton had a team-high nine targets and finished with 5-63-0. He figures to be the lead receiver again if Toney and Shepard remain sidelined, but if those two both play, Slayton won't be playable in Week 8. The tricky thing is, we may not know the status of Toney and Shepard (and hence the status of Slayton) until after Sunday's games since the Giants play on Monday night. Monitor this situation carefully if you have any investments in Giants receivers.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Sanders has quietly been one of the most consistent fantasy football WRs out there this season. Over the past four weeks, he has yet to finish lower than the WR32 on the week and he's bringing plenty of upside as well. In a matchup against the Dolphins secondary that is having trouble stopping anyone, Sanders should be viewed as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Sanders was the 8th ranked fantasy wide receiver from Week 3 to Week 6 with 65.0 fantasy points. He should be a WR2 at home coming off the bye week against a Dolphins team that is 30th against fantasy wide receivers.
