      Samuel rushed twice for nine yards and a touchdown and caught his only target for 16 yards in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Eagles.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Samuel also returned two kicks for 51 yards. His undoubted highlight, though, was his 14-yard touchdown run around the right side to start the fourth quarter. That gave Samuel two scores in three games this season, but considering he's gotten just five touches and played under a third of Carolina's offensive snaps Sunday, his role isn't big enough to put significant stock in.

      Moore caught three of five targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Eagles.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Moore played just under half of Carolina's offensive snaps, but has now seen five targets in back-to-back games. While that's the high mark for him thus far, Moore remains mixed in with Torrey Smith and Jarius Wright for looks behind top targets Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen and Christian McCaffrey, capping his upside on a weekly basis.

      Wright caught both his targets for 37 yards and gained 34 yards on a rush in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Eagles. He also hauled in a successful two-point conversion.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Wright had a couple big plays, taking a handoff for a team-long rush along the left sideline during the second quarter before catching a 28-yard pass to help set up a touchdown during the fourth quarter. In doing so, Wright's 71 total yards marked his most this season. Nonetheless, in playing under 55 percent of Carolina's offensive snaps once again Sunday, Wright's role remains a tough one to put much fantasy stock in.

      Anderson did not get any touches in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Eagles.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Anderson played just three offensive snaps, but that shouldn't be surprising considering how sparingly he's been used since joining the Panthers this season. Unless something were to happen to Christian McCaffrey, the veteran backup figures to remain in a restricted role.

      Goedert hauled in four of five targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-17 loss to Carolina.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Goedert got four of his looks on a single drive in the third quarter that ended with his touchdown catch. He wasn't very involved otherwise, but his reception, target, and yardage totals were all still good for his second-best numbers of the season. The rookie has seen 31-37 snaps in each of his last four games and is likely to see a similar workload Week 8 against Jacksonville at Wembley Stadium.

      Savage re-signed with the 49ers on Monday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Savage became an option following Adrian Colbert's (ankle) placement on injured reserve. For now, San Francisco seems comfortable with C.J. Beathard at the helm. Savage will provide a veteran safety blanket should anything happen to Beathard, but even if he did find his way onto the field in 2018 his fantasy value figures to rank near the bottom of the league.

      Colbert was placed on injured reserve Monday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Upon further examination, it was determined that Colbert is nursing a right high ankle sprain. The timetable for a return would be about 6-8 weeks, prompting San Francisco to designate the veteran to IR. According to the report, Colbert is an unlikely candidate to return this season. All signs point to D.J. Reed taking over at the free safety spot.

      Agholor caught six of seven targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 21-17 loss to Carolina.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: It was a strange game for Agholor, as his six catches represent his third-best total of the season while the yardage total is a season low. Word that the Eagles were in on Amari Cooper prior to his being sent to the Cowboys certainly doesn't bode well for Agholor, who has struggled to produce consistently behind Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery this season. Adding another receiver to the fold would likely reduce the USC product's volume and value even further going forward. For now though, the 25-year-old has a pretty decent floor in PPR leagues as he has at least four catches in all but one game this year.

      Vanderdoes practiced for the first time this season Monday, Jerry McDonald of The Mercury News reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Vanderdoes remains on the PUP list, and his return to practice begins a three-week period in which he can be activated to the 53-man roster at any point, or placed on injured reserve after the three-week window concludes. The second-year defensive tackle suffered a torn ACL last December, but appears to be progressing in his recovery and nearing a return to the field. Expect a decision on Vanderdoes' ongoing regular-season status in the coming weeks.

      Shepard (neck) is inactive for Monday's game against the Falcons.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Shepard's lack of availability is no surprise, given that he was limited in practice throughout the week after sitting New York's loss to the Eagles in Week 6. In Shepard's absence, expect Bennie Fowler and Quadree Henderson to suit up in three receiver sets alongside Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard.
