Week 7 Preview

Here's what you missed yesterday at CBS Fantasy:

The Cardinals made a change

I do not know what that change could mean, but at this point the cardinals have to do something. Rookie Josh Rosen struggled through his worst game, completing 21

of 39 for 194 yards and three picks, with just a touchdown, but they must stay through his fights, given the talent and descent. The obvious answer – and a coach Steve Wilks did not deny on Thursday after the game – would be to get rid of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

McCoy's last three stops were hardly inspiring, with the Broncos finishing 27th last season with him as the offensive coordinator, while the Chargers only managed to beat 17 in his last three years as head coach. The Cardinals are now in 31st place and last in the last few yards, and their offensive has made David Johnson almost completely ineffective. On average, he consumed only 3.2 meters per driver, and the game on Thursday was an example of the problems he faced: too many crashed into stacked boxes in the middle, only three goals and too few opportunities to make space games out of them close.

Of course, there is no miracle cure for what offends the Cardinals because they are not overcrowded with talent. But a better scheme would help, and that's the obvious place to hope for improvement. If nothing else, things probably can not get any worse. I do not know if there's any hope for anyone else here, but I'll make some good deals for Johnson over the next few days. He is too talented not to be better.

Update: The Cardinals fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Friday and backed quarterback coach Byron Leftwich to the post. Leftwich is a highly respected coach who can hopefully reverse this moribund offense. According to reports, frustration with Johnson's use played a role in McCoy's shoots, so hopefully Leftwich will be able to turn his season around. Johnson is a good candidate for buying low prices – hey, it can not get any worse, right?

Phillip Lindsay sliced ​​all of the Broncos' RBs

This was an almost even split throughout the season, with Royce Freeman taking the obvious rushing downs. Devontae Booker took the obvious passages and Lindsay split the rest, but Thursday was not. Booker only played six snapshots as the Broncos seldom relied on their passing game. But it was Freeman's use, which was the most notable, since he only played 18 snapshots, compared to 35 for Lindsay.

Before you get too excited about what this might mean for Lindsay to move forward, note that Freeman suffered an ankle injury at the end of the game that probably explains at least part of the discrepancy. In line with the seasonal trend, Lindsay was once again the team's most effective player. He raced 14 times for 90 yards and a touchdown. Freeman also had a touchdown to go 13 yards with 37 yards.

There is no reason to believe that this is a fundamental change in the way the Broncos use their back, but it is worth noting that Vance Joseph told reporters a few weeks ago that he was Lindsay and Freeman would like to use more. Maybe that's a sign of what they will look like if they do not play from behind like in the past.

Other comments by TNF

  • Ricky Seals-Jones is injured … Seals-Jones took a helmet on his right arm in the third quarter of the game on Thursday, failing to return the injury. The scale is not yet known, but with Seals-Jones, who has not reached more than 60 yards in six out of seven games, he will not be worthy of staying in most formats.
  • Emmanuel Sanders continues to make big games … Sanders met a long touchdown and threw for another Thursday, giving him five points in the season. He also has at least 96 yards in four out of seven games and averaging 86.1 yards per game in 2018, the second best mark of his career. He left the game with an ankle injury late, but with three extra days to recover before week 8, we hope he will not be restricted.

Other comments from the NFL

  • Dalvin Cook (hamstring) not training Thursday … First, there were reports that showed that Cook had practiced on Thursday, but he was on the official practice report on "DNP "downgraded. This is particularly worrisome as Cook had fully exercised on Wednesday and had several setbacks with this injury. We will observe his status with an eagle eye, but at this point prepare an emergency plan in case he sits outside again. Latavius ​​Murray would obviously be in every lineup if Cook missed the time.

Update:

Cook did not rehearse on Friday and seems to have a long chance to come back for Week 7. Murray should start, and at that point, Cook owners just have to hold onto him. It was a frustrating process, but you can not cut it well. The top is too high. But the Vikings were as cautious as you could hope with Cook, and he's still not healed properly. Hopefully week 8 will be against the saints, but I'm pessimistic.

  • Isaiah Crowell (foot) did not train on Thursday … Crowell has missed the first two days of training this week and is considered week 7 against the Vikings as legally questionable. Bilal Powell would see an increased workload if Crowell is marginalized.
  • Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) can not be back for week 8 … Although surgery does not seem to be an option, dolphins will likely be without tannehill for at least two more games, as ESPN reported Thursday "hard fight" to play Thursday night in week 8. He is already ruled out for Week 7, with Brock Osweiler making his second start.
  • Theo Riddick (knee) did not train Thursday … The crowded Lions backfield could be a bit more manageable in week 7, as Riddick has not been training this week. Kerryon Johnson would see an increased workload in the passing game when Riddick is out and worth starting in all formats.
  • T.J. Yeldon (ankle, foot) was back in training … Yeldon was in training on Wednesday, but it looks like it was just a precaution, as he was not limited on Thursday. He looks like he's ready for this week's game against the Texans.
  • Allen Robinson (groin) did not train on Thursday … Now it's time to get worried. Robinson was limited on Wednesday so obviously this is going in the wrong direction. The training on Friday will be enlightening, but do not be surprised if Robinson is not out there Sunday. Taylor Gabriel would be a starting caliber Fantasy WR with Robinson out there.
  • Ted Ginn (knee) was placed on injured reserve … The Saints had apparently hoped to fight the injury with Ginn, who was injured in week 4, but it turns out that's not enough was. This creates a great opportunity for Tre & # 39; Quan Smith and Cameron Meredith, who both have breakout potential for the second half of the season.
  • Mohamed Sanu (hip), Calvin Ridley (ankle) did not train on Thursday. Well, if Julio Jones can not get to the endzone now … Sanu and Ridley were both unable to train all week, although Falcons coach Dan Quinn showed some optimism before Thursday's practice, so Will We See If They Do It
  • Will Fuller (hip) was restricted in training … Fuller is no stranger to training, but in this case, it's a new injury that makes it remarkable. He was struggling with thigh muscle injuries throughout the season, but was largely able to play through. We'll see if that stays the same for week 7 with this injury.
