Khalil Mack (ankle) active for Bears versus Patriots

Chicago Bears linebacker Khalil Mack (ankle) is active for Week 7 versus the New England Patriots.

What It Means:

Even at less than 100 percent, Mack is better than most and should be able to take advantage of a Patriots offensive line that will be without its starting right tackle, Marcus Cannon (concussion).

numberFire's models currently Mack for 4.0 tackles, 0.6 sacks, and 0.3 pass deflections versus the Patriots. The Bears D/ST is 20th in numberFire's Week 7 fantasy rankings.

DeVante Parker inactive in Week 7 for Miami

Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker will not play in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions.

What It Means:

Parker has been a full participant in practice all week, so the absence is not injury related. With rumors circulating regarding his availability on the trade block, Parker can be considered a healthy scratch.

In sparse snaps across some of two games, Parker has just two catches for 40 yards.

Carlos Hyde inactive for Jacksonville in Week 7

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Carlos Hyde will not play in Week 7 against the Houston Texans.

What It Means:

Hyde wasn't expected to play after being traded down south just two days ago, as he hasn't gotten an ample amount of time to learn the playbook.

Our models project Hyde for 201.97 rushing yards, 85.50 receiving yards, and 1.90 touchdowns going forward.

Joey Bosa (foot) expected to make season debut in Week 9 for Los Angeles

Los Angeles Chargers defensive lineman Joey Bosa could make his return to the team in Week 9 against the Seattle Seahawks.

What It Means:

The timing would make sense, as the Chargers are on a bye week during Week 8. The superstar pass-rusher has been held out since suffering the injury during preseason, and he's a vital part of the defense.

Our models currently project Bosa for 20.78 tackles, 1.80 sacks, and 0.68 forced fumbles going forward this season.

Carlos Hyde could make Jacksonville debut in Week 7

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Carlos Hyde has a chance to play in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.

What It Means:

Hyde was traded just two days ago, and while it was originally thought to be unlikely he could grasp the playbook that quick. But it seems that he could be available, and if he suits up, he'd eat into TJ Yeldon's workload.

So far this season, Hyde has 382 rushing yards, 29 receiving yards, and five touchdowns.

Rob Gronkowski (back, ankle) out for New England in Week 7

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will not pay in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

What It Means:

Gronkowski didn't even make the trip to Chicago, leaving him with no chance of playing. The team expects him back for Week 8, so this missed game is hopefully a one-time thing.

Our models project Gronkowski for 49.84 catches, 587.15 yards, and 5.90 touchdowns going forward.

Allen Robinson (groin) expected to play for Chicago in Week 7

Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson will likely suit up in Week 7 against the New England Patriots.

What It Means:

Robinson has been questionable all week, although his status was never really in question. While he will play, he'll likely be shadowed by Stephon Gilmore.

Our models project Robinson for 3.5 catches, 51.1 receiving yards, 0.4 touchdowns, and 8.9 FanDuel points.

Isaiah Crowell (foot) expected to play for New York in Week 7

New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell will likely suit up in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings.

What It Means:

Crowell has been questionable all week, and like last week against the Indianapolis Colts, he will play through the injury.

Our models project Crowell for 37.9 rushing yards, 16.6 receiving yards, 0.3 touchdowns, and 8.6 FanDuel points.

Travis Benjamin (foot) active for Los Angeles in Week 7

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Travis Benjamin will be available to play in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.

What It Means:

Benjamin hasn't played since Week 4, and he'll finally make his return across the pond in London. Expect Benjamin to take some targets away from Tyrell and Mike Williams, but at least early on, he figures to be eased in.

Our models project Benjamin for 1.0 catches, 13.2 receiving yards, 0.1 touchdowns, and 2.2 FanDuel points.

Chris Thompson (ribs, knee) not expected to play for Redskins in Week 7

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson is unlikely to play in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

What It Means:

Thompson missed last week's game against the Carolina Panthers, and it seems as though an extra week of recovery wasn't enough time.

So far this season, Thompson has 100 rushing yards, 200 receving yards, and one touchdown.
