  Redskins | Robert Griffin says he won't rush    Fri Oct 24, 02:46 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) said he won't rush back to play until his ankle is fully healed. 'It's our job to help this team win, and I've been there for Kirk (Cousins) and Colt (McCoy) as much as I possibly can, and being there for this team to make sure they're as ready as possible during this process. And it sucks that I can't get out there and play with them and help them get wins, but I've been listening to the doctors, listening to the trainers, listening to the coaches and we're not going to rush my ankle,' Griffin said. The team is leaving open the possibility that Griffin will play Monday, Oct. 27, against the Dallas Cowboys.

  Cowboys | Gavin Escobar seeing more playing time    Fri Oct 24, 02:45 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar is moving closer to 50 percent of the offensive snaps as the team uses fewer three-wide receiver sets. Escobar had three catches for 65 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 7 win over the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Escobar is a good desperation play at tight end this week if you are covering a bye or filling in for an injured Owen Daniels. He is also clearly worth a stash in TE premium and deep dynasty leagues.

  Patriots | Shane Vereen misses practice     Fri Oct 24, 02:44 PM

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (illness) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 24, because of an illness, according to a source. The team does not appear to be worried since Vereen is not injured.

  49ers | Stevie Johnson very productive    Fri Oct 24, 02:39 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson has played only 20 percent of the snaps in the last month, but he's been the team's most effective receiver in that time. WR Brandon Lloyd has played 40 percent of the offensive snaps, but QB Colin Kaepernick has a passer rating of 127.8 on passes to Johnson and just 87.8 to Lloyd.

Footballguys view: Both of them are capping the Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree's weekly value without creating much of their own. It is a help for Colin Kaepernick's value as a passer.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Johnthan Banks (neck) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 24, and is probable for Week 8.

  Jaguars | Allen Robinson on top of depth chart    Fri Oct 24, 02:35 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson has risen to the top of the team's depth chart, and he's played 90 percent of the offensive snaps in the last three weeks. Robinson is well ahead of WR Marqise Lee on the wide receiver pecking order.

Footballguys view: If you're going to own or play any Jaguars wide receiver, Robinson is the one. The upside for the Jaguars passing game is limited, but most of it comes from Robinson's budding playmaking ability.

Pittsburgh Steelers DT Steve McLendon (shoulder), CB Ike Taylor (forearm) and SS Shamarko Thomas (hamstring) have been ruled out for Week 8. OT Marcus Gilbert (concussion) is listed as doubtful, while DE Brett Keisel (non-injury), FS Mike Mitchell (non-injury), SS Troy Polamalu (non-injury) and LB Ryan Shazier (knee) are listed as probable.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard will play    Fri Oct 24, 02:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 24, and is probable for Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: You can't bench Bernard unless your team is stacked, but the deck is stacked against him with a tough Ravens defense coming to town and no AJ Green in the lineup this weekend.

  Lions | Calvin Johnson will be game-time decision    Fri Oct 24, 01:47 PM

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) will truly be a game-time decision against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8 in London. Johnson was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. "He did work yesterday. I thought he did a pretty good job, but we'll see where he is today," head coach Jim Caldwell said of Johnson before Friday's practice.

  Colts | Trent Richardson could be game-time decision    Fri Oct 24, 01:46 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) has been doing rehab work this week but hasn't practiced. He could be a game-time decision in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Ahmad Bradshaw is a must start against the Steelers porous defense either way. Richardson is very risky if he is active because of the risk of re-injury of his hamstring.

  Broncos | Ronnie Hillman continues to impress    Fri Oct 24, 01:25 PM

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman continues to run with confidence in the absence of RB Montee Ball (groin), and Ball will likely find it hard to win his starting job back when he's healthy. He showed impressive footwork and showed breakaway speed in the team's Week 8 win over the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Oct. 23, and he could have easily finished with two touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Hillman is established as a strong RB2 going forward. Montee Ball is not going to get a full feature back job when he returns, if he is even the starter.

  Broncos | Wes Welker an afterthought in Week 8    Fri Oct 24, 01:21 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker had just two catches for five yards on two targets in Week 8, and he's averaging just 36 yards per game this year, which is less than half his average (77) in the last seven seasons.

  Ravens | Owen Daniels won't play in Week 8    Fri Oct 24, 01:16 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee) underwent a cleanup procedure on his knee and will not play in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach John Harbaugh said he doesn't expect Daniels to miss much time.

Footballguys view: Rookie Crockett Gilmore will get more run with the ones in this game, but look for Torrey and Steve Smith, along with Justin Forsett as potential recipients of extra targets this week.

  Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew set for more touches?    Fri Oct 24, 01:09 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew needs to see more carries, according to head coach Tony Sparano.

Footballguys view: That doesn't mean you should go out and pickup Jones-Drew, but it could hurt the limited upside of Darren McFadden, who has been a decent flex play since he emerged in the Oakland backfield.

  Colts | Reggie Wayne won't play    Fri Oct 24, 01:00 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) has officially been ruled out for Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: The Colts did not commit to Donte Moncrief or Hakeem Nicks as the replacement for Wayne, but Moncrief looks much more capable than Nicks and he's the pickup if you want to try to take advantage of this.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald has owned Philly    Fri Oct 24, 12:53 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has at least one touchdown (10 total) and averages 6.7 catches for 107 yards in six career games against the Philadelphia Eagles, his Week 8 opponent. However, Fitzgerald is tempering his expectations this time around, as he knows he isn't the target magnet he once was. He's only on pace for 61 catches for 755 yards this season. Head coach Bruce Arians isn't concerned with anyone on the team building their stats, and the offense thrives on spreading the ball around. Only RB Andre Ellington (25 catches) has more than Fitzgerald on the team.

Detroit Lions OT LaAdrian Waddle (concussion) returned to practice Friday, Oct. 24, and he said he did everything in practice. However, he's still unsure if he'll play in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons, and he's listed as questionable for the game. 'I'm feeling good,' Waddle said. 'Came out here, did some stuff today. Go back, do some more tests and stuff like that and see how it feels later on in the day and we'll see where we go from here.' Waddle wasn't sure he suffered a concussion in Week 7, and he said he didn't inform the doctors of his condition at the end of the game. Head coach Jim Caldwell said doctors will determine if Waddle will suit up Sunday, Oct. 26.

  Bengals | A.J. Green not practicing    Fri Oct 24, 11:35 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is not practicing Friday, Oct. 24. It's the third straight day he has missed practice, making it unlikely that he'll be able to play in Week 8.

Footballguys view: Green won't be back to save the Bengals offense this week. Mohamed Sanu is a boom/bust WR3/Flex play and Giovani Bernard could get more targets, but do less with them.

  Rams | Zac Stacy could remain a factor    Fri Oct 24, 10:53 AM

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy, who didn't have a touch in Week 7, could remain a factor in the backfield in Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Earlier in the week, head coach Jeff Fisher said Stacy could have 25 carries Sunday, Oct. 26. However, the team is likely to give RB Tre Mason every opportunity to develop the hot hand this weekend.

Footballguys view: Mason is still the best Rams back to own and play this weekend. If there is going to be a Rams RB emerge with consistent weekly value this year, it will be Mason.

  Lions | Calvin Johnson listed as questionable    Fri Oct 24, 10:47 AM

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26. Johnson was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 24.

Footballguys view: Johnson is a true game time decision. With the Lions saying they won't play him unless he's really ready to return, and a Week 9 bye giving them every incentive to sit him if there is any question, Johnson is worth playing if he is active. We should know around 8 am eastern whether that is the case on Sunday. Go to bed on Saturday with Johnson on your bench just to be safe.

  Lions | Reggie Bush listed as doubtful    Fri Oct 24, 10:45 AM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is listed as doubtful for the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26.

Footballguys view: Don't listen to Bush saying he'll play. With the early start and his limited upside and risk of an early end to his day in London, you can go to sleep Saturday night with Bush on your bench.

  Lions | Reggie Bush says he'll play Sunday    Fri Oct 24, 09:57 AM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) missed practice Friday, Oct. 24, but said he will play in Week 8 Sunday, Oct. 26.

Footballguys view: Bush is still not trustworthy because he is coming in banged up, and he is not as effective on natural tracks (especially potentially muddy tracks like Wembley Stadium often is).

  Lions | Brandon Pettigrew a game-time decision    Fri Oct 24, 09:15 AM

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (foot) will be a game-time decision Sunday, Oct. 26. TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) is unlikely to play this weekend.

Footballguys view: New Lion Kellen Davis could get significant snaps at tight end for Detroit with all of the injuries at the position, but he has no fantasy value.

  Broncos | Juwan Thompson handles goal-line duties    Fri Oct 24, 12:14 AM

Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson had seven carries for 24 yards, including a pair of short touchdown runs, in the team's Week 8 victory Thursday, Oct 23.

Footballguys view: Don't expect this Jerome Bettis-esque stat line to be repeated again. Ronnie Hillman had a few scores called back, and Thompson scored once as the up back lined up in front of Hillman in a goal line set. He is still the back to handcuff to Hillman if you want to secure the top two option in the Denver running game right now.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders scores three TDs    Fri Oct 24, 12:06 AM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had nine catches on nine targets for a team-high 120 yards and three touchdowns in the team's Week 8 game Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Sanders hadn't hit paydirt through the first five weeks, but we know that was just a temporary condition. He has the same low WR1/high WR2 value that Eric Decker had last year.

  Titans | Zach Mettenberger could open up offense    Thu Oct 23, 11:18 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger prides himself in his strong arm, WR Kendall Wright said, and the team is hoping that Mettenberger can bring a new element to a passing attack that ranks 27th in the NFL in completed passes of 20 or more yards.

Footballguys view: Justin Hunter could be the main beneficiary here, but he has to also pick up his level of play and consistency to become relevant in fantasy leagues this year. If you've been holding him, the installation of Mettenberger is a good enough reason to hold onto Hunter for at least one more week.
