Geronimo Allison - WR - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: The Packers face the Los Angeles Rams this week, and they actually have yielded a lot of points to WRs the last five weeks. That's because they've been making other teams play catchup, which the Packers defense may be in line to allow the offense this week. Allison is a flex option.
Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: The Los Angeles Rams are a good matchup for Cobb this week if the line can give Aaron Rodgers enough time to throw. The Rams apply the most pressure of any team in the league, which makes Cobb a dicey play.
Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has thrown 15 touchdowns to five interceptions in his last four games. He's averaging 321.5 yards passing per game during the stretch.
Huddle Up: Luck plays the Oakland Raiders this week, which is the worst team in the league at pressuring the quarterback. Luck is known to be one of the best quarterbacks in the league when he has time in the pocket. The Raiders are pressuring the quarterback on just 20.3 percent of dropbacks. Luck is a great QB1 option this week.
Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. exceeded 5,000 receiving yards for his career in the team's Week 7 loss Monday, Oct. 22. He reached that plateau in fewer games (54) than any player since the 1970 merger, surpassing Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, who accomplished the feat in 56 games.
Huddle Up: Despite seeing his real-life team drop to a depressing 1-6, Beckham at least provided plenty of happiness for fantasy teams by logging a season-high 143 yards to go with his second touchdown of the campaign. He's a no-brainer WR1 every week, no matter the matchup.
Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu managed just two receptions for 21 yards on his only two targets in the Week 7 win against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Sanu was battling a hip issue during the week, but he was able to tough it out and play. However, he wasn't much of a factor. He'll get a chance to rest during the bye in Week 8.
Calvin Ridley - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley finished with five grabs for 43 yards on six targets in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: The good news is that Ridley was able to play after being limited due to an ankle during the week. The bad news is that he posted rather marginal numbers for the third consecutive week. He'll get a bye to rest that bum wheel in Week 8.
Austin Hooper - TE - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper posted three receptions for 48 yards on four targets in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Hooper took a bit of a step back after two strong weeks. He still has three or more receptions in six of his seven outings this season to emerge as a borderline low-end TE1/TE2 in most fantasy leagues. You'll need to make alternate plans in Week 8, however, as the Falcons are on a bye.
Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones posted team highs with nine receptions and 104 yards in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22, while he was targeted a game-high 12 times, but he failed to find the end zone again.
Huddle Up: Jones is second in the NFL in receiving yardage (812 yards) with 53 receptions and 81 targets, but he has failed to find the end zone in 12 regular-season games dating back to last season.
Marvin Hall - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Marvin Hall posted three receptions for 63 yards and a 47-yard touchdown on three targets in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Hall was the only Falcons receiver to get into the end zone in the 23-20 victory. Despite the long score he is only worth fantasy consideration in leagues of 16 or more teams in Week 9 when the team returns from a bye.
Atlanta Falcons RB Ito Smith rushed seven times for just 16 yards in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants and he had two receptions for 29 yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Smith was bottled up in the rushing attack, and he did nothing to carve into Tevin Coleman's workload. The Falcons are on their bye in Week 8, so you'll need another flex option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.
Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed 11 times for 50 yards and a 30-yard rushing score in Week 7 against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22, and he added two receptions for 32 yards.
Huddle Up: Coleman's rushing average would have been dismal if not for his big scoring run. Fantasy owners will need to make alternate plans with the Falcons off in Week 8.
Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 31-of-39 passes for 379 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Ryan was very careful with the ball, throwing plenty of short-yardage, low-risk routes, although he did air it out for a 47-yard touchdown to Marvin Hall to open the scoring midway through the second quarter. Ryan continues to be a solid fantasy option, although you'll need to make alternate plans with a bye coming in Week 8 for the Falcons.
Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. racked up eight receptions, a season-high 143 yards and a touchdown on a team-high 11 targets in the Week 7 game against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22 for his fourth 100-yard game of the season.
Huddle Up: Beckham has scored a touchdown in two of his past three games and he has six or more receptions in five consecutive outings, and six of seven contests overall. The offense has been shaky overall, but he continues to post solid fantasy numbers. The Giants host the Redskins in Week 8.
Sterling Shepard - WR - New York Giants
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard pulled down five receptions for a career-high 167 yards on eight targets in the Week 7 game against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: It was Shepard's first 100-yard game of the season, and just the fifth time hitting the century mark in his three-year NFL career. He has three or more receptions in all seven outings this season, serving as a solid WR3 in most PPR formats. The Giants host the Redskins in Week 8.
Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
New York Giants TE Evan Engram posted two receptions for 16 yards and four targets in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22, and he added a 10-yard run.
Huddle Up: Engram returned to the lineup after missing a few games, but he wasn't terribly involved in the offense. It might take a couple of games for him to get back up to speed. Treat him as more of a TE2 heading into Week 8 against the Washington Redskins, but he definitely has TE1 ability.
Saquon Barkley - RB - New York Giants
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 14 times for a team-high 43 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22, and he added nine receptions for 51 yards on 10 targets.
Huddle Up: The best thing that happened was the Giants being behind for a good chunk of the game, as they passed frequently. That meant a ton of short routes and catches for Barkley. He has been everything as advertised despite a terrible offensive line. The Redskins pay a visit to MetLife Stadium in Week 8 to face the G-Men.
Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants
New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 27-of-38 passes for 399 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 7 loss against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Manning rolled up big yardage, but it wasn't a great fantasy stat line and the 23-20 score isn't indicative of how ugly this game was. He'll look for more consistency in Week 8 against the visiting Washington Redskins.
Terrelle Pryor - WR - New York Jets
Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (groin) said Monday, Oct. 22 that he is close to 100 percent and he feels he has made so much improvement from his groin injury that he could be ready to play as soon as Sunday, Oct. 28. He has been contacted by several interested teams and might be an option for those who missed out on trading for Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper.
Huddle Up: Pryor has to find a landing place first, and then he has to learn a new offense, playbook and quarterback. It might take a while for Pryor to re-gain any fantasy relevance.
Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Fuller was targeted eight times in Week 7 and could be more involved this week if Keke Coutee is not able to play. Fuller has a chance to be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.
Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Miller is coming off his best game of the season in Week 7 and should continue to see a solid amount of carries this week against the Miami Dolphins. Owners can consider Miller has a flex option in most leagues.
