Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bears after missing practice all week. He tried to battle through the ankle injury last weekend and ended up tweaking his knee. We’ll see if Kamara can make it back for Week 8, but note that New Orleans has a Week 9 bye. RB Latavius Murray will step in as the lead back on Sunday. It’s not an ideal matchup, but he should be looking at 15-20 total touches, making him a RB2 for the week.
Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Giants, according to HC Kliff Kingsbury. Kirk was limited in practice all week but is "still not all the way there," Kingsbury said Friday. The good news is that we'll get Kirk's game status by noon ET on Sunday. He'll be a risk/reward fantasy play if active.
Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled RB David Johnson (ankle) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Giants. Johnson got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday -- but Kingsbury admitted that he wouldn't have been able to play if the game was on Friday. We'll see how much progress D.J. makes over the next couple of days and should get an update on his status Sunday morning. Cardinals-Giants kicks off at 1 pm ET. If Johnson ends up sitting, Chase Edmonds will step in as Arizona's feature back and become a strong fantasy play.
Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (quad) returned to practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days and is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Eagles. Cooper told reporters after Friday’s workout that he expects to play. We’ll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. If he ends up active, Cooper will be a risk/reward fantasy play in a plus matchup at less than 100%. He made it through just 3 snaps before aggravating that quad injury last week. WR Randall Cobb (hip, back) is also listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game.
Raiders TE Darren Waller (foot) isn’t listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He put in a full practice on Friday after being limited on Thursday. Waller remains a locked-in TE1, especially with WR Tyrell Williams out.
Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) is out for Sunday’s game against the Packers. He wasn’t able to practice all week coming off the bye. Oakland is down to WRs Hunter Renfrow, the recently acquired Zay Jones, Trevor Davis, Keelan Doss and Marcell Ateman. None is a recommended fantasy play. TE Darren Waller should lead Oakland in targets this weekend.
Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He exploded for 3 TDs in his last outing but totaled just 3 catches for 35 scoreless yards over the first 2 weeks. Gabriel remains just a fantasy flier.
The Bears list QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints. He put in 3 full practices, though, so we’re expecting him to get the start. Of course, Trubisky is just a low-end QB2 vs. a hot New Orleans defense.
