New York Jets running back Frank Gore has taken over the lead-back duties with the departure of Le'Veon Bell. The veteran back has done what he can, but the Jets offensive line doesn't give him much help. He saw 11 carries for 46 yards against the Miami Dolphins last week. Gore is expected to have a similar workload against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7. Gore has some deep league value because of his role as the lead back for Gang Green, but it's difficult to trust anyone on the Jets not named Jamison Crowder.
New York Jets quarterback Joe Flacco has started each of the last two games with Sam Darnold (shoulder) sidelined. The veteran quarterback has not been able to do much of anything in his two starts. Luckily, Darnold was practicing on a limited basis on Wednesday, so hopefully he can suit up here. Flacco has not shown any signs of life out on the field, so he'll be avoidable in basically every format, assuming he draws the start against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.
New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder) was able to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday. That's a good sign that Darnold could return against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7. He has missed each of the last two games with an AC joint sprain. Veteran Joe Flacco has looked horrendous as the starter, so they desperately need Darnold back. Sadly, the Jets offenses is terrible, so the return of Darnold doesn't give them that big of a boost. The Bills Defense was able to hold Darnold in check during Week 1, so expect a similar result here, assuming he plays.
Buffalo Bills tight end Tyler Kroft is expected to draw the start against the New York Jets in Week 7. Dawson Knox (calf) was not able to practice on Wednesday and is unlikely to suit up for this one. Kroft hasn't done much this season besides his fluke two touchdown performance in Week 3. He'll likely get the start, but Kroft is avoidable in just about every fantasy format. The Bills have too many weapons on offense, so there is a good chance Kroft only gets two or three targets.
Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (calf) was unable to suit up for practice on Wednesday. It sounds like the second-year tight end is going to miss his second straight game in Week 7. Knox hasn't been a big part of the offense when he plays, so fantasy owners aren't going to miss much. There really is no reason to own Knox in any format right now. Tyler Kroft is expected to draw the start against the New York Jets in Week 7, assuming Knox is unable to play.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown (knee) was unable to suit up for practice on Wednesday. He was barely able to make it through the Week 6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. There is a good chance that the team holds him out of the Week 7 matchup with the New York Jets. Brown was unable to haul in any of his four targets in his last game. Fantasy owners should probably look for a suitable replacement since it sounds like Brown's status is trending in the wrong direction. He hasn't exactly been reliable lately, so standard league owners might want to add some insurance.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley has been one of the biggest surprises for this team this season. He continues to be a reliable option for this offense and has seen four or more targets in every game. Fantasy owners should be able to count on Beasley as a solid flex play against the New York Jets in Week 7. Beasley has put up reliable numbers in PPR formats in just about every game this season.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs has built instant chemistry with his new quarterback Josh Allen. The two of them continue to be on the same page and destroying opposing defenses. Diggs is in line for a big game against the New York Jets in Week 7. Somehow, the Jets have allowed the 15th fewest fantasy points to wide receivers, but take that with a grain of salt. Diggs should have no problems running all over this secondary. Fantasy owners should be able to lean on him as a reliable WR1 for this matchup.
Buffalo Bills running back Zack Moss returned for the Week 6 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. He missed the last three games prior to that with a toe issue, but did basically nothing in his return. Moss rushed five times for 10 yards in the loss. Devin Singletary was the lead back and it's expected to remain that way versus the New York Jets in Week 7. Moss probably won't see enough touches to be worth a look in standard leagues. However, he might be able to have deep league value against the Jets awful run defense.
Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary has not looked sharp over the last two games, but he has a chance to rebound in Week 7 against the winless Jets. He'll get a favorable matchup against the shaky New York Jets Defense, a unit that has surrendered the fifth-most fantasy points to running backs this season. Singletary will lose some of his touches to rookie Zack Moss, but that won't kill his value. Fantasy managers should be able to trust Singletary as an RB2 this week.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen has not been the ideal fantasy quarterback over the last two weeks. Last week, he only threw for 122 passing yards in the loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. However, Allen has a great chance to rebound against the horrendous New York Jets in Week 7. Allen was looking like an MVP candidate through the first few weeks of the regular season. This is a fantastic opportunity for him to look like that guy once again. Allen is going to be an elite QB1 for the Week 7 matchup against the Jets.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Gabriel Davis was not able to do much damage against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6. He finished with one reception on his lone target of the game for seven yards in the loss. Quarterback Josh Allen did not have a good game throwing the ball, so that was part of the problem as well. Davis is likely going to get lost in the shuffle with the Bills receivers healthy at the moment. He might have desperation deep league appeal against the awful New York Jets Defense in Week 7.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown returned on Monday night after a one-game absence, but it looks like he took this game off as well. Brown failed to haul in any of his four targets during the Week 6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Quarterback Josh Allen had a tough time connecting with his receivers in this one. However, both Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley found the end zone. Brown should have WR4/flex value with upside against the New York Jets next week as he puts his injury further in the rearview mirror.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley has been reliable all season long, and that continued against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6. He hauled in four of his seven targets for 45 yards and one touchdown. The Bills weren't able to get the air attack going in this game, but that should change next week against the horrendous New York Jets Defense. Beasley continues to be a reliable PPR option, and that should be the case next week as well in a plus matchup.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs had a fairly quiet game against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6. He hauled in six of his eight targets for 46 yards and one touchdown in the loss. He led the Bills in all receiving categories, but quarterback Josh Allen finished with a total of 122 passing yards in this game. Diggs salvaged his fantasy value with the touchdown, but he should rebound nicely next week. He'll get a favorable matchup against the New York Jets in Week 7. Fantasy owners should be able to lean on him as a WR1 for that game.
Buffalo Bills running back Zack Moss (toe) was able to suit up for the Week 6 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. He missed each of the last three games due to a toe issue, but honestly he could've missed this one too and it wouldn't have changed anything. Moss finished with 10 yards on five carries in the loss to the Chiefs. Devin Singletary remained the lead back and that will probably be the case going forward. Moss should have increased value against the New York Jets next week. He could be worth a stash for that matchup.
Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary was the lead back once again, but failed to do much damage on the ground. He rushed 10 times for 32 yards on the ground in the loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Singletary also hauled in one of two targets for 13 yards through the air. Rookie Zack Moss did return in this game, but Singletary still managed to get double digit carries. Fantasy owners should be able to lean on Singletary as a low-end RB2 against the New York Jets next week.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen had arguably his worst game of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6. He completed 14 of 27 passing attempts for 122 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the loss. He also added 42 yards on the ground with eight rushing attempts. Allen started off red-hot to begin the season, but hasn't looked the same over the last two weeks. He should be a top tier QB1 for the Week 7 matchup against the New York Jets.
New England Patriots wide receiver Damiere Byrd outplayed his fellow receivers during the Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos. He hauled in three of his four targets for 38 yards in this one. Sadly, a 38-yard performance was the best showing from a Pats wide receiver in this game. Quarterback Cam Newton was unable to get anything going against Denver. Byrd is be a desperation deep league option versus the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7.
New England Patriots wide receiver N'Keal Harry was held without a catch during the Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos. He was targeted twice and wasn't able to haul in anything here. Quarterback Cam Newton continues to struggle, so Harry's value has been all over the place this season. It's tough to predict what he's going to do on a weekly basis. He'll likely be someone to avoid in most formats against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman continues to struggle with three straight dud performances. In Week 6, Edelman caught two of his six targets for eight yards in the loss to the Denver Broncos. He now has seven total receptions over the last three games combined. Quarterback Cam Newton struggled to move the ball on offense and Edelman's value continues to fall. He'll be a low-end WR3 against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7.
New England Patriots running back James White has been a big part of the passing attack over the last few weeks. He rushed four times for eight yards and caught eight of his nine targets for 65 yards during the Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos. Quarterback Cam Newton struggled to move the ball on offense, so there were plenty of checkdown chances for White here. The Pats continue to heavily involved White in the gameplan, so that should remain the same against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7. He'll be a PPR flex option for that game.
New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead has seen his role basically disappear with the return of James White. In Week 6, Burkhead rushed five times for 14 yards in the loss to the Denver Broncos. He was unable to do anything in the receiving game and it pretty much killed his fantasy value. Damien Harris is the lead back and James White is the main receiving back on the Pats. Which means, Burkhead is the odd man out right now. He has pretty much become a desperation deep league option at this point.
New England Patriots running back Damien Harris was set up for a big workload for the Week 6 matchup against the Denver Broncos. Sadly, Harris was unable to carry over the momentum for his 100-yard performance in Week 4. He rushed six times for 19 yards and caught one pass for 14 yards in the loss. He basically fell out of the gameplan in the second half with the Pats trailing. Harris is expected to be the lead back once again versus the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7. He'll be a low-end RB2 for that one.
New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton was unable to get much going against the Denver Broncos in Week 6. He completed 17 of 25 passing attempts for 157 yards and zero touchdowns with two interceptions in the loss. He was able to somewhat salvage his fantasy value with 76 rushing yards and one touchdown. However, it was a fairly disappointing performance from Newton. He might have low-end QB1 value against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7.
New York Jets wide receiver Jeff Smith was not able to do much damage during the Week 6 loss to the Miami Dolphins. He saw 20 total targets over the last two games coming into this one. However, Smith was only targeted four times here and hauled in one of them for eight yards. The return of Breshad Perriman basically killed all the momentum for Smith. He won't be on the fantasy radar for the Week 7 matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon has been disappointing all season long and that continued during the Week 6 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Herndon was not even targeted during this game, which is pretty sad considering the Jets don't have many weapons on offense. Ryan Griffin saw three targets, but Herndon remained off the board. At this point, Herndon has basically fallen off the fantasy radar. It's tough to see him having much fantasy value against the Buffalo Bills next week.
New York Jets wide receiver Breshad Perriman returned for the Week 6 matchup versus the Miami Dolphins after missing each of the last three games. He was able to haul in four of his eight targets for 62 yards in the loss. The Jets offense is horrendous, so really no one on that roster is worth using besides Jamison Crowder. Perriman might have some PPR value, but is not worth owning in most formats. It's unlikely that he'll carry much value against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.
New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder continues to be basically the only player worth using in fantasy leagues on this roster. He hauled in seven of his 13 targets for 48 yards in the loss to the Miami Dolphins. Crowder has seen double digit targets in all four games he has played in this season. The Jets offense is horrendous, but Crowder will continue to hold fantasy value. He'll be a solid WR2 against the Buffalo Bills next week.
Miami Dolphins running back La'Mical Perine should see an increased workload going forward after the release of Le'Veon Bell. He saw seven carries for 27 yards and hauled in two receptions for nine yards in the receiving game. For some reason the Dolphins continue to use veteran Frank Gore as the lead back. Perine has potential and deserves a longer look going forward. Perine is worth stashing in most formats, but won't be an ideal fantasy option against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.
