Prior to the concussion scare, Allen was transitioning from streamer to reliable week-to-week starter for fantasy owners. Coming off of a Week 6 bye, Allen will see a nice upcoming schedule against Miami, Philadelphia, Washington, Cleveland and Miami. If your league hit snooze or were impatient with Allen, we recommend an additional immediately.
Darnold was electric in his return, totaling 338 Yards and 2 TDs, but faces a gauntlet of an upcoming schedule against NE and Jacksonville. After those are out of the way, his schedule is a dream the rest of the way (MIA, NYG, WAS, OAK, CIN, MIA).
Mattison shouldn’t be on your waiver wire, but if he is, he should become your top waiver priority this week. In Week 6, Mattison led the Vikes in rushing yards and saw just two fewer carries than Dalvin Cook. The attention to the running attack for the Minnesota Offense makes Mattison an elite handcuff for fantasy owners. So far in 2019, RB Dalvin Cook has already seen 124 Touches, 796 Total Yards and 6 TDs. Hedge your bets and grab Mattison!
After losing a fumble and dropping a TD Pass, Jones was benched for Jamaal Williams and the touch-split concluded 18-15 in Williams favor. Williams made the most of the opportunity, erupting on Monday Night for 104 Rushing Yards & 4 Receptions, 32 Receiving Yards and 1 TD. It appears that they weren’t kidding when they talked “hot hand” in the pre-season and this performance proves why Williams should be owned across fantasy leagues.
Walton received the start in Week 6 vs. Washington, but actually still saw fewer touches than RB Kenyan Drake. Walton totaled 75 Yards on 11 Touches. Consider it a silver lining for the Dolphins and although Miami see’s a challenging upcoming schedule (Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Jets, Indi, Buffalo), we consider Walton a fine Week 7 pick-up for fantasy owners.
With Kamara banged up heading into Week 6 and then leaving for a short period of time during the game, Murray was finally relevant and posted 79 Total Yards. NOLA heads to Chicago this week and this is another speculative move that could develop into more should Kamara not come out of this one clean.
Gurley missed Week 6 with a thigh bruise and still hasn’t exceeded 20 Touches in a game this season. In his absence, Malcom Brown received the start, totaling only 40 Yards on 11 Rushing Attempts, whereas Darrell Henderson notched 39 Rushing Yards on 6 Attempts & 1 Reception for 9 Yards. Overall, the offense was dismal. Jared Goff only threw for 78 Yards … Yeah, you read that right! 78 Yards after coming off of two games where he tossed 517 Yards vs. TB and 395 Yards vs. SEA. Gurley is expected back next week, which slides Henderson back into RB3 duties.
ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio reports Amari Cooper (quad) is in “pretty significant pain” following his exit in Dallas’ Week 6 loss to the Jets. Should this develop into a long-term injury, expect the Cowboys to lean on Gallup, Cobb, Witten and Austin for receiving duties in Cooper’s absence.
Fantasy owners likely hit snooze on Crowder with Darnold out, but the Jets Offense was clicking upon return and Darnold’s hot target benefited with 6 Receptions on 9 Targets for 98 Yards. Pick him up!
With Dorsett missing Week 6 due to a hamstring injury and Josh Gordon exiting with a knee issue, Meyers immediately became the WR2 in New England. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Josh Gordon did not suffer a major knee injury in Thursday night’s Week 6 win over the Giants. Furthermore, Jeff Howe of the The Athletic reports there is “early optimism” Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) misses just one game. To cool off the Jakobi Meyers momentum even more, ESPN’s Mike Reiss notes N’Keal Harry (I.R., ankle) is eligible to resume practicing this week. If anything, due to the bounce-back seen in Edelman, Gordon, Dorsett and Harry, Meyers has a potential 1-2 week window.
Tate saw 12 Targets on Sunday, totaling 5 Receptions for 91 Yards and has seen consistent usage with John Ross on IR and AJ Green still sidelined. With potential trade talks surrounding Green combined with potential upcoming return news, it’s difficult to pinpoint the future for Tate, but production has been consistent and without Green, the WR2 in Cincy has shown to produce. Tate will continue to be a solid bye week flex for fantasy owners until Green ultimately returns.

ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio reports Amari Cooper (quad) is in “pretty significant pain” following his exit in Dallas’ Week 6 loss to the Jets. Should this develop into a long-term injury, expect the Cowboys to lean on Gallup, Cobb, Witten and Austin for receiving duties in Cooper’s absence. Throughout the 2019 Season, Witten has been a pleasant surprise since returning from the booth. Witten’s ceiling is low, but on the season the vet has 2 TDs and is averaging approximately 40 YPG.
Seals-Jones is a name to watch after Cleveland’s Week 7 bye. Although he returns against a stingy NE Defense, Seals-Jones has yielded spotty production so far this season. In Week 4, the TE nabbed 3 Receptions for 82 Yards and 1 TD, followed it up with a goose-egg performance against SF and in Week 6 totaled 3 Receptions for 47 Yards and 1 TD. The disparity at TE in 2019 is scary and with bye weeks coming, fantasy owners are hit with even more famine
