  Giants | Rashad Jennings not ready    Tue Oct 28, 10:24 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not ready to go for Week 9, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings said he is not able to make cuts yet and has been limited to linear running.

Footballguys view: Some thought Jennings would be back after the team's bye week. Now, it looks like Jennings needs a little bit more time. This means rookie Andre Williams could be their lead back in the Week 9 game against the Colts on Monday night.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo has back contusion    Tue Oct 28, 10:04 AM

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) suffered a contusion near the surgical site in his back Monday, Oct. 27.

Footballguys view: Romo left the stadium a bit gingerly as he deals with this latest back problem. Pain tolerance and mobility will be two factors in play in the short term.

  Jaguars | Denard Robinson's vision improving    Tue Oct 28, 09:40 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson's vision is improving, according to offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.

Footballguys view: Robinson has back-to-back 100-yard rushing games over the last two weeks. Ride the hot hand as he's one of the few Jaguars worth starting in fantasy. With his role and production, Robinson makes for a great RB3/flex play or low-end RB2 with upside.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson settling in     Tue Oct 28, 12:22 AM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson had six catches on seven targets for 136 yards in Week 8, and he has topped 100 receiving yards three times in his last four games after managing just one 100-yard game in the first four games of the season.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray reaches 1,000 yards    Tue Oct 28, 12:00 AM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray became the first running back to reach 1,000 yards this season during the team's Week 8 game Monday, Oct. 27. He finished the game with 19 carries for 141 yards and four catches for 80 yards.

Footballguys view: Murray extends his NFL record with his eighth-straight 100-yard rushing game to begin the season. With 11 more carries he'll surpass the number of carries he had last year in 14 games. Murray has never played a full 16-game schedule before in his pro career, and we think it would be wise for the Cowboys to ease his workload just a tiny bit. Fantasy owners need to grab Joseph Randle off the waiver wire just in case.

  Bengals | Greg Little fitting in fast    Mon Oct 27, 08:43 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Greg Little was targeted five times in Week 8 in his second start since signing with the team, and head coach Marvin Lewis said he feels Little 'has the ability to make plays' for the offense.

Footballguys view: Little has good run-after-the-catch's the catching part that has been difficult for him throughout his NFL career. We'll see if he can continue to impress with the Bengals. His target count will drop when A.J. Green (toe) returns to the lineup.

  Lions | Nick Fairley out 4-5 weeks    Mon Oct 27, 06:41 PM

Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee) injured his medial collateral ligament and posterior cruciate ligament in Week 8, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The team now turns to C.J. Mosley and Caraun Reid as options on the defensive line next to Ndamukong Suh. The team hopes he will be able to return in four or five weeks. This is a more optimistic outlook than was first feared. Fairley should be able to return for a postseason run.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams does some drills    Mon Oct 27, 06:10 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) was limited during the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 27.

Footballguys view: It looks like Williams should be back on the field in Week 9. The Panthers play the Saints at home on Thursday night. Williams will split time with Jonathan Stewart, and he's nothing more than a low-end flex play for fantasy owners.

  49ers | Glenn Dorsey practicing    Mon Oct 27, 05:40 PM

San Francisco 49ers DT Glenn Dorsey (biceps) is participating in practice Monday, Oct. 27. Dorsey is currently on the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Dorsey can return to the field for the 49ers in Week 10. Since his injury, nose tackle Ian Williams has filled in admirably. The 49ers could ease Dorsey back into the lineup once he's back from this injury.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings not ruling himself out    Mon Oct 27, 05:38 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not ruling out the possibility of playing in Week 9 but will not return until he is ready.

  Giants | Giants GM wants aggressive offense    Mon Oct 27, 04:53 PM

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese said the team's offense has been cautious up to this point and wants that unit to be more aggressive. 'I just think, as an offense, we have to be more aggressive,' Reese said. 'At times, we're a little bit almost too cautions with what we're doing offensively. This is the National Football League. You've got to go out there and you've got to win the game. You can't expect something to fall into your lap. You've got to take the game. And I think we've got to be more aggressive offensively.'

Footballguys view: The McAdoo system is more of a West Coast design than it is a vertical attack. Without Victor Cruz, the team will have to rely on wide receivers like Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. to be vertical threats.

  Jets | Michael Vick to start in Week 9    Mon Oct 27, 04:49 PM

New York Jets QB Michael Vick will start this week against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: With the way that Geno Smith has been playing, this should come as no surprise. Vick didn't exactly set the world on fire in Week 8 after replacing an ineffective Smith. We'll see if a full week of practice helps Vick look better against the Chiefs.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans may receive more work    Mon Oct 27, 04:20 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans could receive more targets moving forward, because head coach Lovie Smith said the team wants Evans to be more involved.

Footballguys view: It's a good idea for the team to involve Evans more. The big target has a large wingspan and can play above the rim. He'll help the team as a downfield target, and he's a strong presence in the red zone as well.

  Rams | Rams split RB snaps evenly in Week 8    Mon Oct 27, 04:10 PM

St. Louis Rams RBs Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham each were on the field for 18 snaps in Week 8. RB Zac Stacy received 15 snaps during the game.

Footballguys view: Just what fantasy owners did not want to see. Mason led the team in rushing for the third week in a row, but his performance was barely 'what the heck' flex worthy. This is a situation to largely avoid until one (Mason?) emerges from the pack.

  Buccaneers | Mike Glennon to keep job    Mon Oct 27, 04:01 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon will remain the starting job even though head coach Lovie Smith said the team has two quarterbacks capable for starting.

Footballguys view: Phew! We were afraid that Smith would do something crazy and go back to Josh McCown. While Glennon has not played the best, he's still a better option to start than McCown.
