  Colts | Robert Turbin out for season    Tue Oct 17, 06:37 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Robert Turbin (arm) is expected to miss the rest of the season with an arm injury he suffered against the Tennessee Titans Monday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Turbin had been playing around 20 snaps per game but not getting many touches for the Colts in 2017. His injury opens the door for rookie RB Marlon Mack to do more for the Colts going forward.

  Titans | No setbacks for Marcus Mariota    Tue Oct 17, 05:52 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) made it through the Titans' Week 6 win without any setbacks to his ailing hamstring.

Footballguys view: Mariota did most of his damage against the Colts through the air (306 yards passing). He only had two rushing attempts that went for zero yards. No setbacks is a good thing, and as his hamstring continues to feel good we should see Mariota get back to running a bit more.

  Titans | DeMarco Murray has tight hamstring    Tue Oct 17, 05:47 PM

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is dealing with hamstring tightness, but head coach Mike Mularkey believes Murray should be fine for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Just make sure Derrick Henry was not dropped previously in your league. He might not be out there, but some fantasy owners were getting frustrated with his lack of production in 2017....then Henry went off for 131 rushing yards and a touchdown on Monday Night Football against the Colts. With Murray a bit banged up, we could see more touches for Henry.

  Chiefs | Tyreek Hill also full go    Tue Oct 17, 05:31 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (neck) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: Neck injuries are tricky, so keep an eye on this situation. Right now, it looks like Hill should be able to go on Thursday night against the Raiders.

  Chiefs | Kareem Hunt a full participant     Tue Oct 17, 05:25 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: Even when Hunt is shut down as a runner like he was against the Steelers (21 yards), he can rack up fantasy points as a receiver (five catches, 89 yards). He's practicing and is clearly on track to play against the Raiders on Thursday night.

  Packers | Jerod Evans signed by Packers    Tue Oct 17, 05:08 PM

Free-agent QB Jerod Evans (Eagles) was signed to the Green Bay Packers' practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: With Joe Callahan promoted from the practice squad to back up new starter Brett Hundley, the Packers needed a scout team quarterback. Evans has great athleticism and a good arm...but he struggles with accuracy and decision making. He'll run the scout team for the Packers but that's about it. Even in deep dynasty leagues we've seen enough of Evans to leave him on the fantasy waiver wire.

  Falcons | Garrett Grayson signed by Falcons    Tue Oct 17, 04:56 PM

Free-agent QB Garrett Grayson (Saints) was signed to the Atlanta Falcons' practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: Grayson was a developmental quarterback for the Saints but he didn't come along as they hoped. Now he'll get a chance to develop as a scout team quarterback for the Falcons. We stubbornly haven't given up on him in super deep dynasty formats.

  Colts | Two practice squad moves for Colts    Tue Oct 17, 04:36 PM

Free-agent RB Josh Ferguson (Colts) was re-signed to the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 17. WR Cyril Grayson was released from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Ferguson is a good receiving back who has spent plenty of time in the Colts system after they picked him up as a college free agent out of Illinois in 2016. He's a good all-purpose back who gets another opportunity now that Robert Turbin is done for the year.

  Seahawks | Luke Joeckel will miss several weeks    Tue Oct 17, 04:23 PM

Seattle Seahawks OT Luke Joeckel (knee) will miss four to five weeks following the knee surgery he had during the Seahawks' Week 6 bye. OG Mark Glowinski and C Ethan Pocic will compete for the starting left guard position in his absence and both could play in Week 7, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise should play this week    Tue Oct 17, 04:06 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) is expected to take the field this week against the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Prosise can bring some spark to the Seahawks offense...provided he doesn't get banged up again. With Prosise back in action, J.D. McKissic should see fewer opportunities.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson chasing history    Tue Oct 17, 03:57 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson is on pace to become the fourth running back ever to rush 100 times and eclipse 1,000 receiving yards in one season. Thompson must average 5.8 carries and 60.0 receiving yards per game.

Footballguys view: Thompson had a career high 16 carries in Week 6 against the 49ers. With Rob Kelley likely back this week, Thompson's carries are unlikely to be that high again. However, his role as a receiving weapon is clear and that gives him flex appeal in PPR leagues every week.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott's future will be decided Tuesday    Tue Oct 17, 03:17 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott and the rest of the NFL will know his fate by the end of Tuesday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are waiting patiently as more decisions about Elliott's playing status are made. If he's actually suspended, expect the Cowboys to move forward with Darren McFadden as their lead back while Elliott is out.

  Titans | Tennessee's passing game improving?    Tue Oct 17, 02:50 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota and the Titans' offense totaled three passes of at least 25 yards in Week 6. The Titans had produced only four such plays through the first five games of the season.

Footballguys view: Let's pump the brakes a little here. The Titans played against the Colts on Monday night, so it's not like they torched the 'No Fly Zone' of the Broncos. The Colts pass defense gives up an average 295.8 yards per game, ranking 30th in the league in that category.

  Saints | Coby Fleener becoming a non-factor    Tue Oct 17, 02:33 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener has caught just three passes for 42 yards in his last three games. Furthermore, he was targeted only once in the Saints' 52-38 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 6.

Footballguys view: Fleener has ran 101 routes for the Saints this year, that mark ranks 31st in the NFL for the TE position. He's just not that involved with the team's offense...even though the Saints have a high-powered passing attack with QB Drew Brees. Fantasy owners have much better options than hoping for Fleener to start doing anything.

  Raiders | Oakland struggling on offense    Tue Oct 17, 02:08 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr and the rest of the offense have yet to hit their stride this year. On the season, there have been 42 300-yard passing games, 44 100-yard receiving games and 32 100-yard rushing games by individual players. The Raiders boast zero of those 118 such games.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson to play bigger role?    Tue Oct 17, 12:06 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson is expected to see more playing time going forward, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: He's only played about 20 snaps per game, but as he continues to produce we could see Doctson get more of a chance to prove what he can do. He's got two touchdowns over the last three games, but only has four receptions during that time. We might see Doctson targeted more going forward.

  Titans | Pressure no sweat for Marcus Mariota    Tue Oct 17, 09:29 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 87.5 percent of his passes for 145 yards and a touchdown under pressure in Week 7, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Mariota is cool under pressure because he's athletic enough to get out of trouble that is swarming around him. It's no surprise he would put up these numbers with his athleticism and the pass-catching talent around him.

  Packers | Not likely to add Colin Kaepernick    Tue Oct 17, 07:46 AM

The Green Bay Packers are not likely to pursue free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers), mainly because head coach Mike McCarthy does not want to go after a veteran QB without previous ties to the Packers offense.

Footballguys view: McCarthy said he's got three years in Brett Hundley and two years in Joe Callahan and that's the guys they're going with.
