This is some strange news considering the fact Sims has been a full participant at practice all week. He reportedly passed the concussion protocol but it seems that hasn't happened quite yet. The Dolphins will be thin at tight end this week with Jordan Cameron and Sims out this week.
Hilton has topped 150 yards twice already this season, but has now gone for 30 yards or fewer in both of his efforts the following week. On the back last Sunday's 177 yards -- the second most of his career -- the usually electric Hilton was a non-factor Monday, accounting for under 20 yards for just the seventh time in 84 regular-season outings. To make matters worse, Hilton is tasked with a tough matchup against arguably the league's best starting cornerback duo, A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey, this Sunday.
Doyle overcame a concussion to be cleared to return for Monday's contest. Not only did he lead the Colts in receptions and targets, but Doyle scored the team's lone offensive touchdown with an eight-yard catch to start the second quarter. That being said, a fumble added a sour note to his night, as he's now coughed the ball up in two of his last three appearances.
Through two-plus seasons, Dawson has had no trouble with the longer PAT, missing just two of them, including none of his eleven chances this year. Field goals have been another story, though. After missing one in each of his first three contests as a Cardinal, he's righted the ship with just one misfire (a blocked 51-yarder in Week 5) on six attempts over the last trio of outings. Nevertheless, he ranks only 23rd in scoring (6.8 points per game) among kickers with at least five appearances, likely due to Arizona's status as the 20th-most potent offense (19.8 points per game) of the current campaign.
Moncrief posted season highs in catches and yards on a night when top wideout T.Y. Hilton was restricted to one reception for 19 yards. While that provided a small boost to Moncrief's stock, Jacksonville's dynamic starting cornerback duo of A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey awaits this Sunday.
Gore's 4.9 yards per rush marked a season high, but the veteran's totals have been strikingly similar through six weeks. In fact, Gore has rushed for between 42 and 49 yards in five games, with Week 3's 25-carry, 57-yard outing serving as the outlier. At 34 years old, Gore is still grinding out yardage, but it's clear that his upside is limited, especially if he doesn't find the end zone.
Brissett's night was highlighted by an eight-yard touchdown to tight end Jack Doyle to start the second quarter. On the down side, he came inches short of a critical fourth-down rush in the fourth quarter. With top wideout T.Y. Hilton catching just one pass for 19 yards, Brissett was unable to get much going, but he at least didn't turn the ball over. With Andrew Luck's (shoulder) outlook still unclear, Brissett will now prepare for Sunday's matchup versus a swarming Jaguars defense.
After going without a target in Week 1, Brown was on the receiving end of 35 passes from Carson Palmer over the ensuing four games, helping him rack up 17 catches for 244 yards and one touchdown. The downtick in looks Sunday coincided with his lowest snap count of the season -- 34 of the 65 offensive snaps -- which ranked third among Cardinals wideouts behind Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown. Because (John Brown) has resembled his explosive self (17.8 YPC and two touchdowns) the last two contests, (Jaron) Brown doesn't appear to be any better than the third option in the passing attack at the moment. With a trip to London on tap, (Jaron) Brown will look to bounce back against the Rams' 13th-ranked pass defense.
Taylor scored his first career touchdown by catching a 53-yard bomb midway through the fourth quarter, giving the Titans a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The rookie now boasts two receptions of over 40 yards this season, displaying the kind of explosiveness that led him to be drafted in the third round. After Monday's success, Taylor will now aim to become more consistently involved, as he's yet to top two catches in a game.
Matthews' performance included a reception of 27 yards, giving him a 20-yard catch in five of Tennessee's six games thus far. Although his four targets marked a season low, Matthews made the most from his looks, setting a season high in yards per catch. In Week 7, the trusty wideout sports a fantasy-friendly matchup against the lowly Browns.
Decker led the Titans across the board in receiving, topping the five-catch and 50-yard marks for the first time through six games in Tennessee. Although rookie Taywan Taylor caught the team's lone touchdown of the night, Decker will be happy with his improvement and look to build on Monday's performance against a dreadful Browns team this Sunday.
Murray gave the Titans the lead with a three-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. While that marked his second score of the season, Murray's 16 touches were his second most thus far, trailing only Week 5's 18. That being said, Murray was handed seven fewer carries than teammate Derrick Henry, who finished with 131 yards and a touchdown of his own. Sporting two solid options, the Titans' share of backfield touches should be interesting to monitor in the coming weeks, starting this Sunday against the Browns.
Henry out-carried teammate DeMarco Murray 19 to 12, but was generally held in check until the Titans' final offensive play. Of course, that play was a career-long 72-yard touchdown run by Henry, sealing Tennessee's third win of the season. After the team made a point of getting him more involved following a season-low four carries last weekend, Henry's final numbers Monday certainly won't hurt his case for more work going forward. That being said, Murray remains the team's starter and also scored in Monday's victory, leaving the Titans' share of backfield touches something to monitor in Week 7 versus the Browns.
