Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray is averaging a career-low 3.1 yards per rush this season, and he has a long run of 18 yards.
Huddle Up: While Murray hasn't been making as many big plays with his legs, he has scored three rushing touchdowns while enjoying by far his best season throwing the ball. He may be accumulating his numbers in a different manner, but Murray remains a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (foot) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 23, but is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Metcalf has caught at least five passes in four of the last five games and was productive with Geno Smith last week. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Alex Collins (groin) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Head coach Pete Carroll sounded optimistic about Collins' status for Week 7, but fantasy players will know more when the inactive list is posted. Collins is a risky option because the Seahawks play on Monday Night Football but can be a starting option if he is active. Players that have Collins may want Rashaad Penny or Travis Homer on the roster in case Collins is ruled out.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (ankle) has been added to the Week 7 game and is listed as questionable because of an ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Waller may be a game-time decision this week, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He is one of the better tight ends in the NFL and should be a starting option in all leagues if active.

New Orleans Saints WR Deonte Harris (hamstring) did not participate in practice Saturday, Oct. 23, and has been ruled out for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Marquez Callaway should be the main option in the passing game with Harris out of the lineup and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee/ankle) on Saturday, Oct. 23, was downgraded to questionable for the team's Week 7 game Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles with knee and ankle injuries.
Huddle Up: Waller missed Wednesday's practice -- described as rest day -- and then was listed as limited in Friday's practice, so the Saturday downgrade is mildly surprising and concerning. Waller's fantasy GMs now will have to check in on his status before the game Sunday afternoon.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quadriceps) on Saturday, Oct. 23, was ruled out of the team's Week 7 game with the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Hilton's return from IR lasted one game as he strained a quad after catching all four of his targets for 80 yards in Week 6 vs. the Houston Texans. It's not believed to be a serious injury, though, and Hilton should be able to return in Week 8.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (finger) will have the pin removed from his injured middle finger next week, and there's a chance he could return from the Reserve/Injured list immediately when he's eligible in Week 10.
Huddle Up: That would be the best-case scenario for the Seahawks and Wilson's fantasy GMs as he would miss the minimum three games with the team's Week 9 bye week thrown in for good measure.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase's 553 receiving yards is the second-highest total any rookie receiver has had in their first six games, trailing only retired WR Anquan Boldin.
Huddle Up: Not only is Chase in elite company when it comes to production from a rookie, but he currently ranks fourth in the NFL in receiving yards. He has been an explosive weapon for the Cincinnati passing attack, and his 20.5 yards per reception ranks second. He is already an every-week fantasy starter with WR2 upside.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (calf) was cleared to practice Friday, Oct. 22, and has been designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list. The Seahawks have 21 days to determine if they will activate him or keep him on injured reserve.
Huddle Up: It seems like Penny is close to playing and could see a significant role in Week 7 if Alex Collins is not available to play. Fantasy players may consider adding him if he is available because he could be at least a flex option in leagues.

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Metcalf has been on the injury report for several weeks and has not missed a game, so he should be in uniform against the New Orleans Saints. He can be a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Alex Collins (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Collins appears to be in danger of missing the Week 7 game, but fantasy players should know more after practice Saturday, Oct. 23. Players that have Collins on their roster may want to consider adding Rashaad Penny or Travis Homer as a backup plan in case Collins sits out.

New Orleans Saints WR Deonte Harris (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: It looks like Harris may be a long shot to play in the Week 7 game, but fantasy players will know more in the next day or two. He is a risky option since the Saints do not play until Monday Night Football, so players may want to bench him this week.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Ruggs finished with 97 yards and one touchdown in the last week and has posted at least 75 yards in three games in 2021. He can be considered a low-end No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Bryan Edwards (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Edwards has posted at least 60 yards in three of the six games this season but has been held to five receptions over the last three games. Fantasy players probably have better options available and can keep Edwards on the bench.

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Carr is coming off a 341-yard performance last week and has four 300-yard games this season. He has thrown 10 touchdowns in six games and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or bye week replacement in deeper leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (neck) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Kelce should be able to handle his normal workload against the Tennessee Titans and will continue to be a focal point in the passing game. He should be a starting option in all leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Hill appears to have a good chance to play in the Week 7 game, but fantasy players should check the inactive list for his official status. He should be a starting option in all leagues if he is active, but players should have a backup plan ready in case he sits out.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Garoppolo has played in four games this season but has been held to under 200 yards in two of those games. He has recorded six total touchdowns this season but should only be an option in two-quarterback leagues.

San Francisco 49ers QB Trey Lance (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and has been ruled out for Week 7.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

Los Angeles Rams WR DeSean Jackson (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 22, but is not on the injury report for Week 7.

Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to check the inactive list to see if Michel will be available for the Week 7 game. He should see a decent amount of touches if he is active and can be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (groin) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Swift has been on the injury report for most of the season but is in no danger of missing the Week 7 game. He likely will see a majority of the playing time at running back and should be involved in the passing game. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, but is listed as questionable for Week 7.
