      Quinn (ankle) could be cleared to resume practicing next week, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The rookie seventh-round pick out of SMU appeared set to win a Week 1 roster spot with the Redskins before sustaining a high-ankle sprain in the preseason. Quinn ultimately needed surgery to address the injury, resulting in his placement on injured reserve prior to the opener. The wideout said Monday that he's progressing well from the procedure and expects to continue his rehab through this week before the Redskins determine if he's fit for practice. If Quinn does rejoin the team for practice, the Redskins would have to designate him as one of their two players eligible to return from IR. Since he'll have already missed the first eight weeks of the season, the Redskins could activate Quinn prior to their Nov. 4 game against the Falcons, though it's possible he'll need more time to get back in football shape after the long layoff. Once reinstated, Quinn could have an immediate role in a banged-up Washington wideout corps.

      Conner is expected to remain the Steelers' lead back Sunday against the Bengals with Le'Veon Bell (contract dispute) not planning to report to the team this week, Jim Trotter of NFL.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: There had previously been whispers that Bell was planning on rejoining the team during its Week 7 bye, but that never came to pass. Bell remained absent from the squad when it reconvened Monday and looks like he could continue his holdout through the Oct. 30 trade deadline, if not longer. However long Bell is out of the Steelers' backfield mix, Conner should make for a strong lineup option across all leagues, as he entered the bye week ranked among the NFL's top five in both rushing yards (453) and rushing touchdowns (seven). Conner turned in arguably his best outing of the season against this same Cleveland squad in Week 1, racking up 192 yards from scrimmage on 36 touches (31 carries, five receptions) while finding paydirt twice.

      Smith tallied 16 rushing yards on seven attempts, adding two receptions for 29 yards during Monday's 23-20 win against the Giants.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: In Week 6, Smith became the first rookie in Falcons franchise history with touchdown runs in three consecutive games, but overall he has been inordinately inefficient as a ball carrier in 2018. Atlanta's fourth-round pick has averaged fewer than 3.1 yards per carry during the regular season, after establishing a 2.5 yards per rush clip during the preseason slate. With Devonta Freeman (groin/foot) unable to return until at least Dec. 16th, expect Smith to garner somewhere between 8-to-12 offensive touches on a weekly basis as a complementary option to Tevin Coleman. Following a Week 8 bye, Atlanta takes on Washington and a Redskins front seven that has allowed the second-fewest number of rushing yards to opposing tailbacks this year (380).

      Coach Adam Gase said Tuesday that Tannehill (shoulder) would be able to resume light throwing at practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Dolphins have already ruled Tannehill out for a third straight game Thursday versus the Texans, but it appears the quarterback is at least making progress in his recovery from the right shoulder injury, which is believed to be an AC joint sprain. Tannehill has been practicing with the team on a limited basis since he was first revealed to be dealing with the injury, but he's mostly been limited to conditioning work while the Dolphins have barred him from throwing. Gase said that Tannehill may use a Nerf ball to limit the strain on his shoulder while he initiates his throwing program, so it appears the signal-caller will require additional healing time before he's able to throw a regular football without restrictions. Brock Osweiler will draw another start while Tannehill turns his focus to a potential return Week 9 against the Jets.

      Gallup will probably see a reduction in snaps following the acquisition of Amari Cooper.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Cowboys had finally settled on Gallup and Allen Hurns as their regular outside receivers, but with Cooper coming in and expected to immediately become Dak Prescott's No. 1 target, the two holdovers will be fighting for the other starting spot. The rookie showed flashes of his upside while putting together his best performance to date in Sunday's loss to Washington, catching three of five targets for 81 yards and his first NFL touchdown, but Hurns' experience as a possession complement to a more explosive teammate -- the role he filled in Jacksonville opposite Allen Robinson -- will likely provide him with an edge over Gallup in the playing-time battle. The third-round pick is still a big part of the Cowboys' future, but the team's low-volume passing game won't provide him with many chances to make a fantasy impact in a depth role behind Cooper, Hurns and slot receiver Cole Beasley.

      Hurns could see his snap count fall following the acquisition of Amari Cooper.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Cowboys had finally settled on Hurns and rookie Michael Gallup as their regular outside receivers, but with Cooper coming in and expected to immediately become Dak Prescott's No. 1 target, the two holdovers will be fighting for the other starting spot. Hurns is coming off his best performance of the season, catching five of six targets for 74 yards in Washington, and while on paper he makes a strong possession complement to Cooper's more explosive skill set -- potentially filling the role Michael Crabtree did opposite Cooper in Oakland the last few years, or that Hurns himself did opposite Allen Robinson in Jacksonville -- the team won't want to neglect Gallup's development.

      Nelson will serve as the Raiders' No. 1 outside receiver Week 8 against the Colts following Amari Cooper's transition to Dallas, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Nelson's potential volume in the Raiders' aerial attack figures to benefit from Cooper's departure, though expectations for a significant uptick in production may need to be tempered with a struggling Derek Carr at the helm. Running back Jalen Richard and tight end Jared Cook are slated to continue vulturing plenty of looks, while Martavis Bryant and Seth Roberts (concussion) present Nelson with underwhelming competition at receiver.

      Bryant is expected to start at wide receiver across from Jordy Nelson in Week 8 against the Colts following Monday's decision to trade Amari Cooper, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Bryant's underwhelming 2018 campaign has been marred by drops and a lost fumble, but he'll have additional opportunities to flash his upside moving forward with Cooper leaving town for Dallas. Bryant has yet to catch more than four passes in a single game this season, but his big-play ability led to a 91-yard performance against a respectable Chargers secondary Week 5. Fortunately for the Raiders' receiving corps, a pair of intriguing matchups against porous pass defenses await with the Colts and 49ers next up on the schedule.

      Sanu caught both of his targets, piecing together 21 receiving yards during Monday's 23-20 win against the Giants.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The veteran receiver was eased back into the fold during a Monday Night Football victory over the G-Men, fielding just two targets (fifth on the team) after exiting Atlanta's Week 6 game against Tampa Bay with a groin injury. Headed into Monday's tilt against the desperate Giants, Sanu had accounted for 100 receiving yards or a touchdown over each of his past four games. Following a bye week, Sanu and the Falcons will reemerge on Nov. 4th to take on a Redskins defense that has held opponents to seven yards per attempt this season, tied for fifth-fewest in the NFL.

      Snead caught three of seven targets for 23 yards Sunday against the Saints.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Coming off his best game of the season in Week 6, Snead fell flat against his former team Sunday. He caught less than half his targets and averaged a meager 3.2 yards per target. On the plus side, Snead's volume is still consistent and his nearly 70-percent catch rate coming into Sunday should keep the targets coming despite his dud against the Saints. He has seen at least five targets in every game this season and has seen at least seven targets in four straight contests. He'll face the Panthers in Week 8.
