    Flying High In Philly

    Cross-Sport Dominance – The Philadelphia Phillies have just clinched a World Series berth, while the 6-0 Eagles are the last unbeaten team in the NFL.

    Life is good in the City of Brotherly Love.

    ALL Eagles starters have been prominent fantasy stars in 2022…even Philly D ranks 5th!

    Entering the Week 7 Bye:
    QB3 – Jalen Hurts (148 pts)
    RB10 – Miles Sanders (88 pts)
    WR9 – AJ Brown (95 pts)
    WR15 – DeVonta Smith (85 pts)
    TE4 – Dallas Goedert (68 pts)

    For a fanbase that once booed Santa, optimism is at an all-time high right now in Philly.

    Can Bucs Right the Ship on TNF?

    Brady’s Frustration Grows – The Bucs (3-4) have dropped 4 of 5, including being blown out 21-3 by the lowly Panthers in Week 7.

    Tampa Bay continues to weather the injury storm, especially on the o-line and in the WR room.

    With Russell Gage (hamstring) out, and Julio Jones (knee) and Mike Evans (ankle) limited, Chris Godwin is primed for a huge target share against a vulnerable Ravens secondary.

    Both the Ravens and Bucs have stumbled out of the gate, and this matchup is nearly a must-win if either team seeks to be a legitimate contender.

    We’re guaranteed to have a pissed off Tom Brady on our hands Thursday night, which will end up being a scary sight for Ravens fans.

    We’ve seen TB12 with his back against the wall before. I wouldn’t bet against him there.

    Key Injuries & Value Shifts

    New Injury Headlines Breece Hall (ACL) was the biggest injury blow of the weekend for most fantasy managers. Just a shame for the budding superstar, who showcased his game-breaking talent on a 62-yard TD scamper to start the game.

    Playmakers Mike Williams and David Njoku both suffered high-ankle sprains, and are projected to miss a month or so. Neither injury appears season-ending.

    Value Up:
    James Robinson (NYJ) Acquired in wake of Hall injury, should step into an immediate role
    Josh Palmer (LAC) – Bullish target potential with Williams injury and Keenan Allen remaining out
    Gus Edwards (BAL) – 2 TDs in season debut, led backfield with 36% snap count
    JaMycal Hasty (JAX) – Slides in as RB2 for Jags, value as Travis Etienne handcuff

    Value Down:
    Jeff Wilson (SF) – Played just 33% of Week 7 snaps, CMC addition is a killer to his fantasy stock
    Matt Ryan (IND) – Ranks 4th in passing yards (2,008), but being replaced by late-rounder Sam Ehlinger
    Chuba Hubbard (CAR) – In absence of CMC, injured his ankle while D’Onta Foreman thrived
    Broncos RBs Melvin Gordon and Latavius Murray have struggled, roles remain unclear
