Expert 
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
 Coach Bruce Arians said CB Patrick Peterson (quad) has looked "fine" and will play Week 7 against the Rams.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Thomas has been limited in practice this week with a calf issue, but he should be good to go Sunday against the Chargers. Even if it isn't the prettiest matchup, with Emmanuel Sandrs out, he should see upwards of a dozen targets. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Watkins has two catches on six targets for 28 yards over his last three games, and is simply not a part of the Rams' offensive gameplan. The Arizona secondary gives up plenty of points to opposing wide receivers, but Patrick Peterson is still capable of locking down any foe. Peterson should play through an injury this week, and will likely be matched up against Watkins. Given that Jared Goff seems to avoid the opposing team's top cornerback, it's likely that Watkins' targets will continue to be limited on Sunday, and he should again be considered only a desperation play.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 Sammy Watkins had a talk with Sean McVay about getting more targets and that led to just four targets against the Jaguars last week. He's going to struggle again if Patrick Peterson is out there, as Peterson has shut down every receiver he's played against this year. If Peterson plays, Watkins belongs on fantasy benches. If Peterson is misses this game, Watkins needs to be in lineups as a WR3 with upside.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Chargers are just 26th against fantasy receivers and with WR Emmanuel Sanders out this week, Thomas could have nice WR2 value in a great matchup.
