Samaje Perine, RB | CIN

Week 7 role unclear

After a week-long stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Perine returned to practice Thursday and looks to be back to full speed. Though Perine had served as the clear No. 2 back behind starter Joe Mixon through the first five games, his absence in the Week 6 win over the Lions allowed rookie Chris Evans to see his largest role to date. Evans was efficient with his 16 snaps (four carries for 18 yards, three receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown), and his strong showing may have allowed him to leapfrog Perine in the pecking order. Taylor noted that Evans and Perine are both capable pass catchers, runners and blockers, so no particular game script would seem to suit one better than the other.

Ricky Seals-Jones, TE | WAS

Ricky Seals-Jones (quad) is not on the injury report for Week 7.

There was never much doubt over his status. Seals-Jones has been featured in an every-down role with Logan Thomas on IR, seeing 14 targets (three red-zone) while running a route on 88% of dropbacks the last two weeks. He'll be a back-end TE1 for a matchup with a Packers secondary that's middle of the road at defending tight ends, allowing an average of 50 yards and six catches per game to the position this season.

Terry McLaurin, WR | WAS

Terry McLaurin (hamstring) is not on the injury report for Week 7.

McLaurin was upgraded to a full practice Friday, a great sign after he played through the injury last week. Fantasy managers should expect McLaurin, who has the third most deep targets in the league, to be close to 100 percent for Sunday's matchup with the Packers. Green Bay's secondary has allowed the fourth fewest passing yards, but have given up 13 touchdowns through the first six weeks.
