 Melvin Gordon (hamstring) has been downgraded to questionable for Week 7 against the Titans.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Gordon has been the most valuable fantasy back not named Todd Gurley, as he's significantly improved his rushing efficiency this season and become even more highly-utilized in the passing game. The Titans have done a pretty good job containing running backs, but Gordon is an elite play regardless.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
At this point, wouldn't be it be fun for Jones to break the single-season record for receiving yards without a single touchdown? He's on pace to finish 79 yards shy of Calvin Johnson's 1,964. Having allowed four receiving touchdowns to wideouts (including two to Alshon Jeffery in Week 6) this season, the Giants aren't the ideal opponent to break the end-zone drought. Yet Janoris Jenkins is coming off a rough Thursday-night showing, and it still wouldn't be surprising to see Jones eventually make up for lost time. He's the WR11 (WR6 in PPR) without the benefit of any end-zone trips, so keep trotting him out as an elite option. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Jones was targeted 14 times and he had 10 receptions for 143 last week. He remains a WR1, but it is troubling that he has not found the end zone yet this season. Tennessee is 6th against fantasy running backs, but Gordon is having a monster year and he should have RB1 value, regardless of matchup.
