For most leagues, your team needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. You never want to concern yourself with what your opponent is doing, just aim to get to this number, hope for more and let the chips fall where they may. To reach this goal you will need (at minimum) 12 points from each of your starting skill positions (over 20 from your QB; more than a few from your kicker and at least 11 from your defense). This is the threshold for the IN/OUT predictions.

 

Here are the basic league settings that we are basing our predictions on…

Week 7 Injury notes:

On Sunday, Jay Cutler exited the Bears’ loss to the Redskins in the second quarter with a groin injury. His legs appeared to stretch awkwardly after taking a sack. Cutler then hobbled very gingerly to the locker room. He was sent for an MRI later that night.

Monday afternoon rolled around and Cutler was diagnosed with a torn groin. He’s going to be sidelined for a minimum of four weeks and will likely miss more time than that. The good news for the Bears is that they’re heading into their bye week. The bad news, however, is that Josh McCown is going to have to start football games for this team. McCown played decently in relief of Cutler on Sunday, but the Washington defense is a complete joke. McCown’s insertion into the lineup makes Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett shaky fantasy plays. Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall remain elite plays. Look for the Bears to lean on Forte, while McCown could certainly force-feed the veteran Marshall.

Reggie Wayne was forced from Sunday night’s win over the Broncos with what was initially called a “sprained” knee. A Monday MRI revealed a much more serious injury. Wayne was diagnosed with a torn right ACL and meniscus and is obviously done for the season. Wayne was attempting to lunge for an under-thrown Andrew Luck pass on the play he was injured. It’s a devastating blow for the 5-2 Colts.

Indianapolis will move forward with Darrius Heyward-Bey, T.Y. Hilton, and LaVon Brazill as its top three receivers. However, we wouldn’t put it past GM Ryan Grigson to swing a deal for a receiver ahead of the October 29 trade deadline. Kenny Britt, Josh Gordon, and Hakeem Nicks are just a few names that could be in play. The Colts only have a little over $1 million in salary cap space, so that could complicate matters. Hilton will likely become Luck’s favorite target, but Coby Fleener could take over as the safety valve in the middle of the field that Wayne was for the second-year quarterback. Brazill will be a deep threat. We wouldn’t expect a major uptick in production from Heyward-Bey.

Doug Martin left Sunday’s loss to the Falcons with a left shoulder injury after he landed hard on it while attempting to make a catch near the end zone. Sunday evening X-rays came back negative and the second-year running back insisted his shoulder wasn’t separated.

On Monday morning, multiple news outlets reported Martin had suffered a torn labrum. That would almost certainly end his disappointing season. However, coach Greg Schiano came out and said the team doesn’t believe Martin’s injury is season-ending. Schiano simply said it would be a “stretch” for Martin to play this upcoming Thursday night against the Panthers. For now, we’ll consider Martin out indefinitely until an update is provided.

In the meantime, rookie Mike James is fully expected to carry the load for the Bucs while Martin is sidelined. James has rumbled for just 57 yards on 17 carries (3.4 YPC) through the first six games on his career. In the preseason, he piled up 130 yards on 32 totes (4.1 YPC). The Panthers have allowed just two touchdowns on the ground to opposing running backs this season. James will be a middling flex option but is definitely worth a pickup in all formats.

Free agent JaMarcus Russell is reportedly still battling knee and weight problems. … Sam Bradford (torn ACL) is done for the season, but coach Jeff Fisher committed to Bradford for 2014 in his Monday presser. Of course, things can change, but this is the likely route the Rams take. Kellen Clemens will start for the Rams next Monday night. … The Browns have yet to decide on a Week 8 starting quarterback. It will either be Brandon Weeden or Jason Campbell. … Coach Gary Kubiak called Matt Schaub the Texans’ starting quarterback but said the position will be evaluated during the Week 8 bye. … Nick Foles has been diagnosed with a concussion. Michael Vick will likely start Week 8, though we can’t rule out Matt Barkley just yet. … The Jets released Brady Quinn and shifted David Garrard to the active roster. … Ben Tate revealed that he suffered four broken ribs on Sunday. He plans to play in two weeks following Houston’s Week 8 bye. That’s going to be awfully tough. Coach Gary Kubiak called Arian Foster (hamstring) day-to-day. … The Steelers released Isaac Redman. … Steven Jackson (hamstring) is expected to resume practicing this week. We’ll believe it when we see it. … Jonathan Stewart (ankles) is expected to practice this week for the first time this season.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports three teams have contacted the Browns about trading for Josh Gordon. Two teams reportedly have offers on the table. … Percy Harvin (hip) returned to practice Monday. He has a chance to suit up next Monday night against the Rams. … Danny Amendola (concussion) remains without a timetable for return. … The Cowboys may “shut down” Miles Austin (hamstring). Tony Romo says Terrance Williams has improved as much as anyone on the team the past six months. … Coach Mike McCarthy “hopes” to have James Jones (knee) back for Week 8, but said he was given a 2-3 week timetable initially. … Jermichael Finley (neck) was released from the intensive care unit at the hospital Monday evening and has feeling in all of his extremities. Coach Mike McCarthy said it was “premature” to put a timeline on Finley’s recovery. … Greg Olsen (foot) and Brandon LaFell (knee) were limited in Panthers practice Monday. Neither is in danger of missing Thursday night’s game. … The Redskins are reportedly trying to trade Fred Davis. They won’t get much in return if they’re successful. … ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Jimmy Graham’s (foot) status for Week 8 is uncertain. We’ll know more later this week.

With all that behind us, here are the FANFOOD Fantasy Football 3 IN/OUT results for week 7 followed by a recipe for Pumpkin Chili.

The Dolphins DST failed to really take advantage of the inexperience Thad Lewis Sunday, in a 23-21 loss to the Bills in Week 7. They held Buffalo to just 268 yards of total offense in the game, but failed to come up with many big plays. Miami forced just one turnover in the game, but came up with four sacks. Of the 23 points allowed by the Dolphins defense, seven of them did not come against Miami’s defense; the Bills scored on an interception return for a touchdown. Miami had a decent Fantasy performance in Week 7, but it was still somewhat disappointing. The bottom line is that they helped more than hurt and ended up being a good streaming D.

Coby Fleener caught five passes for 38 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against Denver. Fleener was coming off back-to-back weeks of being held under 20 yards, so it was a much needed bounce back. He did all of his damage in the Colts final drive before halftime and was a non-factor in the second half. Fleener will still struggle with week-to-week consistency, but should be a solid TE2 option when the Colts come out of their bye in Week 9 against the Texans. If you started him in week 7 like we thought you should, he gave you good points for your TE1.

 

Larry Fitzgerald caught just two passes for 17 yards in Arizona’s Week 7 loss to the Seahawks. Fitz’s biggest play of the night came in the fourth quarter, where he laid a bone-rattling block on Seahawks CB Richard Sherman. Otherwise, he didn’t make an impact as he attempted to play through his latest hamstring injury. Fitzgerald was clearly hobbled, struggling to create drive off the line of scrimmage. He now has 10 days to get healthy for Week 8, where the Cardinals will take on the Falcons’ banged-up defense. This was a great week to have him on your bench, hope you took our advice.

 

Miles Austin was held without a catch on three targets in Sunday’s Week 7 win at Philadelphia. The Cowboys opened the game in a three-wide receiver set and Austin was not part of it. From there, he played limited snaps as rookie Terrance Williams (6/71/1) continued to emerge and Cole Beasley shined in the slot.  He let your team down this week and may be droppable.

 

 

Misses

 

Stevan Ridley rushed 11 times for 50 yards and a touchdown in New England’s Week 7 loss to the Jets. He “added” two catches for three yards. Ridley was the invisible man through the game’s first 1.5 quarters, notching only one touch as passing-down/hurry-up back Brandon Bolden monopolized snaps. The Pats began feeding Ridley on their third drive, however, where he broke loose on the outside for a 17-yard score. Why he didn’t touch the ball more on an afternoon where Tom Brady was clearly off is unclear. Ridley brings the stress on a weekly basis, but is still more RB2 than RB3. We told you to bench him and hope you didn’t take our advice. At this point with all the RB injuries, you may have to just roll will Ridley and ride it out.

 

Rueben Randle caught three passes for 40 yards and one touchdown in Monday night’s Week 7 win over the Vikings. Randle secured all three of his targets. He beat Chris Cook from 24 yards out to reel in the touchdown. Randle is clearly the Giants’ most-talented weapon on the outside. But he remains a bit raw and mistake-prone. Randle coughed up a fumble on a punt return to set the Vikings up in the red zone. Josh Freeman gave it away on an interception two plays later. Randle will be a strong WR3 play next week against the Eagles. He burned them for two touchdowns in Week 5. If it wasn’t for the fumble, he would have made the HIT list. 10+ points is not a stinker, but not enough to qualify as an “IN”.

 

Alfred Morris rushed 19 times for 95 yards in Sunday’s Week 7 win over the Bears. This one is going to make Alf’s owners pull their hair out. The Redskins ran at will on the Bears and scored 45 points, but Morris couldn’t find the end-zone as he watched Roy Helu score three times. Helu’s scores came mostly out of the hurry-up, but it’s certainly a concern going forward. Simply put, Helu is earning more and more work as the season moves along. Still, Morris is averaging 5.18 YPC on the season and continues to churn up yards after contact. He’s the clear-cut starter and high-end RB2, but one without a ton of upside thanks to his inability in the passing game and Helu’s emergence. He was another player that helped your team more than he hurt it, but he didn’t make it to the 12-pt threshold to be considered a HIT pick.
