Jaron Brown Headshot

Brown caught two of five targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 33-0 loss to the Rams.

Brown led his team in receiving yards as the entire passing offense struggled with Drew Stanton under center after Carson Palmer broke his left arm in the second quarter. Stanton will take over the quarterback job moving forward and Brown has to compete with John Brown and J.J. Nelson for snaps and attention behind Larry Fitzgerald at the wide receiver position, so things aren't looking good for Jaron's fantasy value.

Trent Brown Headshot

Brown has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Cowboys due to a concussion,

Brown will need to clear the concussion protocol before playing in another game. As long as he remains out, Garry Gilliam will likely be tasked with protecting quarterback C.J. Beathard.
6:53 pm (EST)
Jarvis Landry Headshot

Landry reeled in seven of 11 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Jets.

Landry got Miami rolling early with a four-yard touchdown grab to tie the game at seven apiece. It was his third straight game with a score. Landry really got rolling in the second half, however, when Matt Moore replaced an injured Jay Cutler. Five of Landry's catches, eight of his targets, and 80 of his yards came with Moore in the game. The two might be together again on Thursday as Jay Cutler looks to bounce back on a short week. Landry caught 15 of 22 targets for 213 yards and two touchdowns in three Moore starts last season.
6:49 pm (EST)
Deonte Thompson Headshot

Thompson, signed by the Bills on Tuesday, caught all four of his targets for 107 yards in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.

Apparently, the Bills liked what they saw in Thompson and were more than happy to take him on after he was waived by the Bears on Oct. 11, a move that certainly paid off and was a key component to a big come-from-behind win. Aside from Sunday against a weak Tampa Bay defense, the Bills have a lousy pass offense and games like these won't come around very often for Thompson, even though the Bills might sprinkle him into the offense given he's got a speed threat to his game, something they've been looking for. Just don't expect much more than a few big plays, as Thompson has never caught more than 22 balls in a season.
6:48 pm (EST)
Kevin Minter Headshot

Minter has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Steelers with a right elbow injury.

Minter's injury should create more work for Vincent Rey, who filled in at linebacker during Vontaze Burfict's suspension earlier this season. More will be known regarding Minter's injury in the coming days.
6:47 pm (EST)
Adrian Peterson Headshot

Peterson rushed 11 times for 21 yards and added a 12-yard reception on four targets in Sunday's 33-0 loss to the Rams.

Peterson dominated in his Cardinals debut last week, but looked more like the plodder we saw in New Orleans here. While he was the only running back to get carries for his team, Peterson's workload was limited with his team down big for most of the game. The decorated veteran will be well-rested and should have a better understanding of the playbook when we next see him after Arizona's Week 8 bye, but the team's offense will be operating without starting quarterback Carson Palmer, who broke his left arm in this one.
6:47 pm (EST)
Jay Cutler Headshot

The Dolphins reportedly believe that Cutler suffered two cracked ribs Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Per the report, the injury could sideline Cutler two to three weeks, though such a potential outcome is pending the results of further medical evaluations. At this stage though, it looks like Matt Moore is probably going to start at QB for Miami in Thursday night's game against the Ravens.
6:47 pm (EST)
Kenny Stills Headshot

Stills nabbed six of nine targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Jets.

Stills got it going early with a 36-yard grab on Miami's first possession, setting up the team's first score of the game. He went quiet as Miami fell behind by two touchdowns, but then helped dig them out of trouble with touchdown grabs of 28 and two yards from the arm of backup quarterback Matt Moore. Moore and Stills have a nice rapport, having connected for a touchdown in each of Moore's three starts in 2016. They might be lined up together on Thursday against Baltimore as Jay Cutler battles a chest injury on a short week.
6:40 pm (EST)
Sammy Watkins Headshot

Watkins caught three of five targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 33-0 win over the Cardinals.

Watkins topped his totals in catches (two) and yards (28) from his past three weeks combined in this one, but that says more about how badly he's struggled of late than anything else. While this performance was understandable with stud cornerback Patrick Peterson shadowing Watkins, it was disappointing to see the prized offseason acquisition so quiet in a blowout win. The former Bills wideout still has the explosiveness to go off in any given week, but it's tough to trust Watkins right now.
6:38 pm (EST)
Graham Gano Headshot

Gano converted his only field-goal attempt to give the Panthers their only score in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Bears.

Gano overcame a knee injury to suit up Sunday, when he did all that was needed of him. Although a better offensive performance from Carolina would've helped Gano's output, his relative inactivity perhaps enabled his knee to gain some extra rest. While no fault of his own, Gano's three points still marked a season low, as he hadn't registered fewer than seven prior to Sunday.
