Falcons' Julio Jones (hip) removed from the injury report
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is no longer on the injury report.
Jones appeared to be healthy last week, but it's still a good sign moving forward. Coach Dan Quinn also indicated he wants Jones to get the ball more, so he could see an increased role against the New England Patriots this week.
In Week 7, numberFire's models rank Jones as the WR2, projecting him for 6.2 receptions, 77.0 yards, and 0.6 touchdowns off 9.3 targets. That would net him 14.5 FanDuel points.
Matt Forte (knee, toe) limited for Jets at Wednesday's practice
New York Jets running back Matt Forte (knee, toe) was limited at practice on Wednesday.
Bilal Powell (calf) remains out, so Forte and Elijah McGuire will likely carry the load for the Jets again in Week 7 versus the Miami Dolphins. He's rushed 32 times for 116 yards and caught 14 passes for 117 receiving yards in four games this season.
Without accounting for Powell's potential absence, numberFire's models project Forte to score 6.8 FanDuel points at a cost of $5,500 versus the Dolphins, making him the RB44 in our Week 7 fantasy rankings with a projection of 7.7 carries for 28.0 yards and 0.01 touchdowns with 2.6 catches for 22.2 yards and 0.09 touchdowns.
Patriots' Chris Hogan (ribs) limited at practice on Wednesday
New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan (ribs) was limited in practice on Wednesday.
Hogan took a hard hit against the New York Jets on Sunday, but still played 93% of the snaps, so he should be good to go this week against the Atlanta Falcons.
numberFire's models project Hogan for 4.0 receptions, 57.2 yards, and 0.5 touchdowns off 6.5 targets, good for 10.6 FanDuel points.
Mike Wallace (back) limited at Ravens' practice on Wednesday
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace (back) was limited at Wednesday's practice.
Jeremy Maclin was also limited, and Breshad Perriman didn't practice at all, so the Ravens are dealing with a very banged up receiving core. Even if Wallace is able to play on Sunday, he has a tough matchup against the Vikings' secondary.
Our models project Wallace for just 4.1 FanDuel points at a cost of $5,400 in Week 7.
DeMarco Murray (hamstring) doesn't practice for Titans Wednesday
Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday.
Despite some hamstring tightness that limited Murray on Monday Night Football, head coach Mike Mularkey said on Tuesday that the Titans' running back will play against the Cleveland Browns in Week 7. He'll likely be limited in a game where Tennessee is favored by just under a touchdown, giving Derrick Henry potential standalone fantasy value.
numberFire's models project Murray to score 13.7 FanDuel points at a cost of $6,500 versus the Browns, making him the RB9 in our Week 7 fantasy rankings with a projection of 13.9 carries for 64.5 yards and 0.50 touchdowns with 3.1 catches for 26.6 yards and 0.03 touchdowns.
Marcus Mariota a full participant at Titans' Wednesday practice
Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota practiced in full on Wednesday.
It was just a light practice, but it's still a good sign that Mariota escaped Monday night's game against the Colts without a setback on his hamstring. As long as he keeps practicing this week, Mariota should be good to go in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.
Our models project Mariota for 21.5 FanDuel points at a cost of $8,200 against Cleveland.
