Montgomery has missed time due to an illness related to sickle cell trait, but returned to practice, and should be in line to resume his starting role at RB. With no concrete word on Stacks, and the releasing of Davis, it looks like Montgomery will play on Sunday, and have a large role in the offense again.
He got the start and out-touched LeGarrette Blount 9-3 in the first half, but only saw one carry after that without any more targets once the Eagles established a solid lead. Despite missing a couple games with swelling in his knee, Smallwood slid right back into his regular role. He could be an interesting play in Week 8 against a 49ers team that struggles defending passes to running backs and just gave up 219 total yards to Ezekiel Elliott.
The Eagles had the game well in hand when his 45-yard attempt clanged off the right upright in the fourth quarter, ending his streak of consecutive attempts made at 12. Prior to the miss, he had made from 42 and 50 yards. The rookie continues to provide solid fantasy numbers from the kicker position as the Eagles head into a Week 8 matchup with the 49ers.
Kelley overcame injury to make his first appearance since Week 4, but facing a stout Philadelphia rush defense always figured to make matters difficult. Still, Kelley has now only topped 3.3 yards per carry in one of his four appearances this season and is yet to find the end zone. Fellow Redskins tailback Chris Thompson caught a touchdown pass while garnering seven carries Monday, but after he was eventually forced to leave with a toe injury, Kelley could be in line for more work in Week 8 versus the Cowboys.
Reed scored late in the third and fourth quarters, catching passes from five and 12 yards, respectively. In doing so, the tight end finally was able to find pay dirt this season, making for easily his best performance of the campaign. Although Reed still isn't feeling fully healthy, his display Monday suggests he's trending in the right direction ahead of Week 8's matchup against the Cowboys.
Cousins was responsible for all of Washington's end-zone trips, which all occurred from inside the red zone. With two touchdowns to tight end Jordan Reed and another to tailback Chris Thompson, though, Cousins once again didn't get much production out of his wide receivers. In fact, none of the Redskins wideouts topped 40 yards. To his credit, Cousins has still tossed for 300 yards three times in his past four outings, while totaling 11 touchdowns versus two interceptions over that span as well. That illustrates the signal caller's strong form ahead of Sunday's next divisional matchup, a home date with the Cowboys.
Sanu was targeted 10 times on the day, which trailed only Julio Jones, who was targeted 13 times. It appears that Sanu's hamstring injury is officially behind him, and he could benefit if teams decide to double team Jones. His return also means fewer targets for guys like Taylor Gabriel and Justin Hardy.
His lone target fell incomplete, so it was a rough outing for Coleman all around. He has a decent match up against the Jets in Week 8, but the Patriots defense had been horrendous through the first six weeks, so he was expected to have a decent stat line in this contest as well. Devonta Freeman looked much more effective against New England, running for 72 yards on 12 carries.
Jeffery only made a couple of catches, and although one was a 24-yard gain, he's now failed to reach the 40-yard plateau in three of the last four games. While tight end Zach Ertz has emerged as a favorite of quarterback Carson Wentz, Jeffery still managed to lead the Eagles in targets Monday, providing hope for a resurgence in Week 8 against the winless 49ers.
Freeman also hauled in three passes for 18 yards, meaning he averaged six yards per touch. He was one of the few bright spots for Atlanta, who never really seemed in this contest. He has a nice match up in Week 8 against the Jets, who rank near the bottom of the league in rushing yards allowed this season.
Agholor's slot resurgence has been clear to see, as he's now scored five touchdowns this season, including one in each of Philadelphia's last three outings. Deemed a first-round bust through his first two years, Agholor currently sports 366 yards, which is not only new career high already, but also ranks in the top 25 league-wide. On the back of another solid performance, Agholor boasts an enticing matchup against the 49ers in Week 8.
The exact severity and specificity of the ankle injury remains unclear, although the linebacker's condition following the game suggests it'll be a tough road to recovery in time for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.
