Tyler Eifert Headshot

Update: Tyler Eifert said he's ready to make his 2016 debut.

After Eifert finally got in a full practice on Thursday, he's prepared for his season debut this week. The Bengals offense hasn't reached it's full potential this year and it's clearly due to Eifert's absence. Eifert is Dalton's favorite red zone target on a team that has A.J. Green catching passes as well.

LeSean McCoy Headshot

Coach Rex Ryan says LeSean McCoy's hamstring injury isn't "full blown" and the team hopeful he can play Week 7.

McCoy is all sorts of bang up after hurting his knee during Week 6's game while also pulling a hamstring. If McCoy can't play, Mike "Touchdown Mike" Gillislee will begin line for a full workload. Gillislee has scored a touchdown in the last two weeks so he could be a viable replacement if McCoy doesn't suit up.

Rudy Gay Headshot

Kings and Thunder were seriously engaged on a Rudy Gay-Cameron Payne trade until Payne got hurt.

The Kings have been looking for their point-guard of the future for quite a while and almost had there's before Payne was injured. Payne served as Russell Westbrook's backup during his rookie campaign. The one position the Thunder are lacking at is small-forward, the position Gay plays. Gay would be a solid offensive addition to an already solid offensive team. From a fantasy perspective, Gay's value would have gone down as he would likely be the Thunder's third scoring option as opposed to the second option in Sacramento.

Carson Palmer Headshot

Carson Palmer will not practice Thursday.

Despite the fact he's not practicing on Thursday, this is nothing more than a precaution. Palmer returned to action this past Monday and looked good in the rout of the Jets. Arizona plays the Sunday night game against the Seahawks so starting Palmer in any fantasy formats is a very risky play.

Sharrif Floyd Headshot

Sharrif Floyd will not play Week 7.

Floyd still hasn't played this year due to a knee injury and still won't play in Week 7. He was originally to return after the bye week but that's obviously not the case. The Vikings are the number one rated defense in fantasy and getting Floyd back only makes them stronger.

MyCole Pruitt Headshot

MyCole Pruitt is not practicing Thursday.

Pruitt isn't a big factor in the Vikings offense so this injury doesn't hurt them much. It will, however, if he can't play in Week 7 and starter Kyle Rudolph gets injured.

Odell Beckham Headshot

Giants OC Mike Sullivan is very optimistic and hopeful that Odell Beckham Jr. will play Week 7.

After seeing what Beckham was able to do after returning to action in Week 6, he's more than likely going to play in Week 7. The Giants and Rams play this week's game in London so you'll have to wake up before 9:30 AM ET in order to find out if Beckham is active or not.
