Jake Elliott converted two of three field-goal attempts Monday as the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Washington Redskins 34-24. He made kicks of 50 and 42 yards, and missed a 45-yarder. Elliott tacked on four PATs.
Nick Rose converted his lone field-goal attempt Monday - a 27-yarder - as the Washington Redskins lost to the Philadelphia Eagles 34-24. Rose tacked on three PATs.
Analysis: Signed last week to replace the injured Dustin Hopkins, Rose was perfect in his NFL debut. He still didn't attempt a kick longer than the PAT try, however, so the jury is still very much out on his potential.
Nelson Agholor had four receptions for 45 yards and one touchdown Monday in the Philadelphia Eagles' 34-24 win over the Washington Redskins.
Analysis: All he does is catch touchdown passes. Agholor has now scored in three straight games and five of the Eagles' first seven contests, not too shabby for a player who averages about four catches and 50 yards per outing. The 2015 first-rounder has proven his worth as a legitimate fantasy option in a breakout third season.
Jamison Crowder had two receptions for 28 yards Monday in the Washington Redskins' 34-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He added one rush for three yards.
Analysis: Crowder may be worth dropping in redraft leagues, as he's managed just 19 catches for 149 yards and zero touchdowns through six games. He's been even less productive lately, mustering a paltry 36 yards on six grabs over his last three contests.
Josh Doctson had three receptions for 39 yards Monday in the Washington Redskins' 34-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Analysis: Doctson still has yet to live up to his lofty draft status, but he's starting to get more and more playing time at the expense of free-agent bust Terelle Pryor. The 2016 first-rounder is still too risky to use as a fantasy starter, but makes for a high-upside hold.
Jordan Reed had eight receptions for 64 yards and two touchdowns Monday in the Washington Redskins' 34-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Analysis: Reed finally broke through after opening the season with five straight games of under 50 yards and failing to score in any of them. The Redskins next face rival Dallas, a team the standout tight end hurt for 15 catches, 165 yards and two scores in two meetings last season.
Alshon Jeffery had two receptions for 37 yards Monday in the Philadelphia Eagles' 34-24 win over the Washington Redskins.
Analysis: It's the third time in four games in which Jeffery was held under four catches and 40 receiving yards, and he's still stuck on two touchdowns through seven weeks. A surefire fantasy starter in Chicago, that's no longer the case for the big-bodied wideout in Philadelphia.
Zach Ertz had five receptions for 89 yards and one touchdown Monday in the Philadelphia Eagles' 34-24 win over the Washington Redskins.
Analysis: Ertz found the end zone for a third straight week and now has at least five catches and 55 receiving yards in six of the season's first seven games. With Carson Wentz playing lights-out under center, Philadelphia's leading receiver has become a must-start every week.
Terrelle Pryor Sr. had two receptions for 14 yards Monday in the Washington Redskins' 34-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Analysis: Pryor was just about invisible on this night, much like he's mostly been all season. Signed to a big offseason contract to be Washington's No. 1 receiver, the former quarterback has produced just 18 catches for 223 yards and one touchdown through six games.
Vernon Davis had four receptions for 67 yards Monday in the Washington Redskins' 34-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Analysis: Davis continues to be a big-play threat at age 33, as he's averaged 19.9 yards on his 14 catches over his last four games. He still doesn't see enough targets to merit a starting spot in most fantasy lineups, but may be worth stashing considering fellow tight end Jordan Reed is always hurt.
Corey Clement ran for six yards on one carry Monday in the Philadelphia Eagles' 34-24 win over the Washington Redskins. He added one reception for nine yards and one touchdown.
Analysis: The rookie came out of the backfield to haul in Carson Wentz's third touchdown pass for his second career score, but otherwise was used sparingly. Clement is a clear third behind Wendell Smallwood and LeGarrette Blount in the Eagles' backfield pecking order.
Hunt is on pace to finish with 284 carries, which would have ranked fifth in the league last season. He is also on pace to catch 57 passes, giving him well over 300 touches. That would surpass any kind of workload he had during his four years at Toledo.
Analysis: The Chiefs hope to have Charcandrick West for their game Monday night against Denver, but that probably doesn't mean that Hunt's workload is going to ease much. That's music to fantasy owners' ears.
Elliott will play at least one more game before another ruling from a federal judge on his six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations.
Analysis: U.S. District Judge Katherine Polk Failla in an order posted Monday turned down the NFL's request for an expedited hearing on a preliminary injunction. She set one for Oct. 30, a day after the Cowboys visit Washington.
Bryant appeared to be asking for a trade again when he posted "give me what I want" on social media Sunday night and then did not show up to team meetings on Monday due to an illness. Bryant's agent, Thomas Santanello, told ESPN that Bryant went to see a doctor Monday morning.
Analysis: Bryant on a since-deleted Instagram post late Sunday night also called out rookie receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who caught a 31-yard touchdown in the the Steelers' 29-14 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon. "He wants out," a source close to Bryant told ESPN. "Point blank." Last week, the NFL Network reported that Bryant wanted out due to a lack of playing time. He was targeted three times and had one catch for three yards Sunday against the Bengals.
Analysis: Brown, whose contract expires after the 2018 season, has been losing almost $553,000 a week in game checks for not reporting because of a contract dispute. The Texans can get a two-week roster exemption if they need that long for him to be ready to play.
Brown exited Sunday's game against Atlanta in the third quarter with an ankle injury.
Analysis: No word on the severity, though that's par for the course with the Patriots. Brown isn't a real difference maker on a statistical level but is a key starter and run-stopper on the interior of New England's defensive line.
Matt Bryant missed both of his field-goal attempts, a 37- and 36-yarder, in the Atlanta Falcons' 23-7 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. Bryant tacked on one PAT.
Analysis: Bryant has now missed three of four field goal attempts over the last two games after going 9 for 9 over the first four. The 42-year-old leg tends to be a bit shakier in outdoor games, and he's got another coming up with a visit to the Jets next weekend.
Stephen Gostkowski converted three of three field-goal attempts Sunday as the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons 23-7. He made kicks of 29, 21 and 38 yards. Gostkowski tacked on two PATs.
Analysis: Gostkowski booted through at least three field goals for the fourth time in seven games this season and is now 16 for 17 on 3-point tries for the year. Fantasy owners should keep rolling with a kicker who's annually among the scoring leaders in all formats.
