We ran the table again last week since I went 3-0 with my recommendations. For the season, my record now sits at 15-3. Let’s try and keep the heater going with three more wagers to consider for Week 7 of...

Tevin Coleman, Jordan Reed Return To Practice
Written by Staff 4 hours ago Category: Injuries, Matchup-Outlook, Sit-Start, Top-Headlines San Francisco 49ers, San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers opened their 21-day practice window for running back Tevin Coleman (knee) and tight end Jordan Reed (knee) on Wednesday. Both players are still on the team's Injured Reserve, so they're not listed on the official injury report leading up to Week 8 against the Seahawks. If they make it through the week without any setbacks, there's a chance they could be activated from IR and play on Sunday. With both Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. on IR as well, Coleman would return to a backfield currently occupied by Jerick McKinnon and rookie JaMycal Hasty. It's time to add Coleman if he's available in your league, although he'll be a risky starting option this week if he returns, as he'll be at risk of being eased back in. McKinnon and Hasty are both low-end RB2/high-end RB3 backs this week if Coleman isn't ready to return. Reed would simply be a backup to George Kittle and wouldn't have any standalone value.
Lions Defense Won't Have Everson Griffen In Week 8
Written by Staff yesterday Category: Lineup, Sit-Start Detroit Lions
Because of COVID-19 protocols, the Detroit Lions Defense will not have newly acquired defensive end Everson Griffen available to play in Week 8 against the Colts. Griffen's debut with Detroit will come on Nov. 8 against the Vikings, the team that he spent the first 10 years of his career with while earning four Pro Bowl nods. The Lions sent a sixth-round draft pick in 2021 to the Cowboys for Griffen's services on Tuesday, and he'll be a veteran present for Detroit's defensive line the rest of the season. While the 32-year-old isn't an IDP starting option at his position on a weekly basis, he should help improve their defensive line. However, the Lions defense overall is near the bottom of the league in fantasy points through seven weeks, so you should continue to avoid them everywhere.
Cooper Kupp Bounces Back In Week 7
Written by Staff 2 days ago Category: Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp was shut down in Week 6, but he bounced back against a tough Chicago Bears Defense in Week 7 on Monday night. He caught all six of his targets for 43 yards and he added one run for 16 yards. Kupp was second on the team in targets and he remained an integral part of this offense. Quarterback Jared Goff has looked Kupp's way more than any other pass-catcher this season, and that's probably not going to stop. Kupp's WR1 ceiling isn't really there like it was last year, but he does still have a safe WR2 floor on a week-to-week basis.
Russell Wilson Explodes in Week 7
Written by Staff 3 days ago Category: Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson couldn't quite get the job done on the actual gridiron on Sunday night, but he got it done on the virtual one during Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals. He completed 33 of 50 passes for 388 yards with three touchdowns to go with three interceptions. He also added six carries for 84 yards, which led the team on the ground. It doesn't matter what the matchup is on a weekly basis, because Wilson is lighting up literally everyone right now. He should be locked into your lineups each and every week. He has a couple of tough matchups over the next couple of weeks, but his schedule softens up again for your playoff push.
Jimmy Garoppolo Fails To Score Touchdown In Week 7
Written by Staff 3 days ago Category: San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had a decent game overall against the New England Patriots in Week 7. Unfortunately, it didn't result in a solid fantasy day. Garoppolo completed 20 of 25 passes for 277 yards. He was unable to throw a touchdown pass in the game and he had two interceptions. The 49ers cruised to a 33-6 victory in the game, but all four of their offensive touchdowns came on the ground. Garoppolo threw three touchdown passes against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6, his best fantasy game of the year so far. He should be able to have success in fantasy terms next week, when he faces a weak Seattle Seahawks secondary.
