  Broncos | Denver not expected to sign RB    Tue Nov 18, 05:52 PM

Free-agent RBs Ben Tate (Browns) and LeGarrette Blount (Steelers) aren't expected to draw interest from the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: It is late into the season and is tough for a new running back to learn a Peyton Manning-led system. The Broncos are thin at running back right now with Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball banged up. C.J. Anderson should continue to be the lead back, and Juwan Thompson his primary backup. Rookie Kapri Bibbs should be active for the first time this year in Week 12 against the Dolphins.

  Chiefs | Travis Kelce a full participant    Tue Nov 18, 05:48 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ribs, shoulder) fully participated in practice Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Footballguys view: Kelce played 96 percent of the snaps in the game against the Seahawks. Too bad the Chiefs didn't pass more in Week 11. Kelce still has great upside, but Alex Smith and this average passing game is holding him back.

  Saints | Brandin Cooks placed on IR    Tue Nov 18, 05:29 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) was placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Footballguys view: The rookie's season is now over. Cooks flashed playmaking ability for the Saints this year, and he will be missed. Without Cooks, we could see Kenny Stills become a more fantasy relevant player.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson can stay on list    Tue Nov 18, 05:24 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson can be kept on the commissioner's exempt list until the appeal on Peterson's suspension is heard, according to an arbitrator.

Footballguys view: Some thought Peterson would be back soon, but there's been a holdup. Now, the appeals process will have to be exhausted. That means there's a chance Peterson doesn't get back in action this year.

  Patriots | Jonas Gray facing tough opponent    Tue Nov 18, 04:46 PM

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray had a huge performance in Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts, but ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss expects a difference offensive approach in the backfield against the Detroit Lions, who are ranked No. 1 in the league against the run.

Footballguys view: The Patriots have a plan for the Colts--running them over with a power back like Gray works well. Facing the Lions is a different story, and fantasy owners need to adjust. Coming off a white-hot week, fantasy owners need to dial back expectations for Gray because of the opponent.

  49ers | NaVorro Bowman to be evaluated    Tue Nov 18, 04:07 PM

San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman (knee) has a 21-day practice/evaluation window during which the team will decide whether to activate him or place him on Reserve/Injured. The same window applies to TE Garrett Celek (back), OT Brandon Thomas (knee) and CB Keith Reaser (knee).

Footballguys view: Getting Bowman back would be a boost for the 49ers defense. Head coach Jim Harbaugh did not indicate either way whether Bowman would practice this week.

  Steelers | Promote Josh Harris    Tue Nov 18, 03:02 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers promoted RB Josh D. Harris to the 53-man roster Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Footballguys view: This moves corresponds with the release of LeGarrette Blount. We're not expecting much from Harris in a reserve role for the Steelers.


  Colts | Make more roster moves    Tue Nov 18, 02:59 PM

  Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw placed on IR    Tue Nov 18, 02:54 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg) was placed on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Nov. 18. Bradshaw suffered a broken leg in Week 11.

Footballguys view: The Colts have an opening at the running back position behind Trent Richardson. Dan Herron is going to get the first crack as the team's change-of-pace back, but they might go out and sign a back in free agency.

  Steelers | Interested in Ben Tate?    Tue Nov 18, 02:32 PM

Free-agent RB Ben Tate (Browns) may already have drawn interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers after being released by the Cleveland Browns Tuesday, Nov. 18. A Steelers staff member reportedly called a Cleveland Browns staff member asking about Tate's release.

Footballguys view: We could see this happening. The Steelers have a need behind Le'Veon Bell since they themselves released LeGarrette Blount on Tuesday. Tate is out of a job for now, but it won't be long before some team takes a chance on the veteran back.

  Panthers | Activate Mike Tolbert     Tue Nov 18, 02:07 PM

The Carolina Panthers activated FB Mike Tolbert (leg) from the short-term Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Footballguys view: This is good news for the Panthers, but it might be bad news for fantasy owners. Tolbert is a touchdown vulture who could steal some goal line looks from guys like Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams.

  Eagles | No updates on Nick Foles    Tue Nov 18, 02:01 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone), who cracked his clavicle in Week 8, is expected to miss at least another month, but head coach Chip Kelly said there have been no recent updates on his condition. "No," Kelly said. "He'll get a re-check at some point in time, but they said it's usually three to four weeks out before they ever take another x-ray. So he has not had that done yet." Foles has been working out, but not in game conditions.

Footballguys view: We could see Foles shut down for a month or more. In the meantime, Mark Sanchez will continue as the starter for the Eagles.

  Eagles | Jason Kelce struggled with snaps    Tue Nov 18, 02:01 PM

Philadelphia Eagles C Jason Kelce (hernia) had some trouble with snaps in Week 11 after recovering from a sports hernia. "I just think he's been a little more erratic at times, and he has got to be a little more consistent," head coach Chip Kelly said. "I think that the layoff has hurt him a little bit. He will be the first to admit that. So we just need to get more consistent with the snap." Kelce also had his thumb wrapped, but Kelly doesn't think that's the issue.

  Steelers | Release LeGarrette Blount    Tue Nov 18, 01:29 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers released RB LeGarrette Blount Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Footballguys view: There were rumblings out of Pittsburgh that players wanted Blount gone because he was bad in the locker room. Blount was unhappy with his limited role in Pittsburgh, and he may find it difficult to latch on with another team. We'll see how many teams show interest in the big power back.

  Panthers | Jason Avant released    Tue Nov 18, 01:01 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Jason Avant was waived Tuesday, Nov. 18, according to a source informed of the transaction. Avant had just 21 catches in 11 games this season. Head coach Ron Rivera said the team wants to give WRs Philly Brown and Brenton Bersin more playing time after the Week 12 bye.

Footballguys view: Getting cut from a team like the Panthers is not a good sign for Avant's future in the NFL.

  Steelers | Martavis Bryant shut down    Tue Nov 18, 12:46 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant, who had six touchdowns in his first four games entering Week 11, was held to just two catches (five targets) and 11 yards against the Tennessee Titans Monday, Nov. 17.

Footballguys view: Bryant had two end zone targets against the Titans, but he couldn't haul either pass in. The role is still there for the rookie to come through as a what the heck flex each week for fantasy owners.

  Colts | Indy to sign Joshua Cribbs    Tue Nov 18, 12:39 PM

Free-agent WR Joshua Cribbs (Jets) will sign with the Indianapolis Colts, according to two sources with knowledge of the process. Cribbs' last touchdown came all the way back in 2011.

  Falcons | Atlanta expects heavy dose of Josh Gordon    Tue Nov 18, 12:32 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will make his season debut against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12, and Falcons head coach Mike Smith doesn't expect the Browns to ease their best receiver back in. 'Absolutely I do,' Smith said. 'They've stated that they want to get him out on the field as quickly as possible. And he's a game-changer. He's a guy that with the ball in his hands, he can make plays. So we're anticipating that we're going to get a full dose of him this week.' Gordon had a league-leading 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games in 2014. Smith said they aren't afraid to put CB Desmond Trufant, their best cornerback, in a shadow role on Gordon.

Footballguys view: The Falcons should be expecting a lot of Gordon in Week 12. Fantasy owners can look at him with confidence this week. Gordon was a fantasy star in 2013 with guys like Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden throwing him the ball.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray ready to carry the load    Tue Nov 18, 12:30 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray, who has already passed career highs for rushing yards and carries, said he is ready for an even bigger role down the stretch. "I'm ready," Murray said. "Like I've said before, whatever they ask me to do I'm going to do it times 10. It's going to be an exciting next couple of weeks for us." He said the team's bye week allowed him to relax and recharge.

Footballguys view: The bye week comes at a good time for Murray. He's never played a full 16-game regular season during his four-year pro career. Fantasy owners who have Murray should also be carrying Joseph Randle if they can.

  Browns | Ben Tate waived    Tue Nov 18, 11:19 AM

The Cleveland Browns have waived RB Ben Tate.

Footballguys view: The Browns are moving on with rookie backs Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West. Tate may draw some interest from teams like the Colts or the Steelers. He wasn't doing much for the team this year, and he certainly was a disappointment as a free agent signing. We'll see how long it takes Tate to find a new job.

  Colts | No interest in Ray Rice    Tue Nov 18, 10:37 AM

Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) is not a player the Indianapolis Colts would consider if he were to be reinstated.

Footballguys view: Nothing to see here people. Head coach Chuck Pagano was defensive coordinator with the Baltimore Ravens during Rice's best seasons, which spawned speculation between the two parties.

  Vikings | More on Adrian Peterson suspension    Tue Nov 18, 09:06 AM

Updating earlier reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson would be eligible for reinstatement no earlier than April 15, if his suspension is upheld.

Footballguys view: The appeals process has already started, and this story is far from over. Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a letter to Peterson that he 'has shown no meaningful remorse' and laid out a counseling and treatment program that will determine how long the ban lasts.

  Jaguars | Allen Hurns to start    Tue Nov 18, 09:01 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns will replace WR Allen Robinson (foot) in the starting lineup instead of WR Marqise Lee.

Footballguys view: Lee has been disappointing this year, while Hurns has had a few big games here and there. With Cecil Shorts healthy and producing, Marcedes Lewis coming back, and the shaky outlook for this passing game from week to week, Hurns makes for a what the heck flex play in deeper leagues.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson suspended rest of season    Tue Nov 18, 09:00 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was suspended without pay for at least the rest of the 2014 season for violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Footballguys view: Many fantasy owners thought Peterson would be back at some point this year. His playing status is certainly in question now. Peterson is appealing the suspension (of course), so stay tuned.
