  Bears | Brandon Marshall unhappy with QB    Sun Oct 19, 06:09 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall called out QB Jay Cutler in a heated locker room discussion after the team's Week 7 loss against the Miami Dolphins, a source said Sunday, Oct. 19. The source said there 'are some very selfish individuals in the locker room.' But it's not out of the ordinary for Marshall to strongly voice his opinion to Cutler, as the two are close friends off the field. Marshall also reportedly yelled at PK Robbie Gould.

Footballguys view: This is probably something would stand out less if Marshall and Cutler didn't have pre-existing narratives that are continued with this story. It shouldn't affect your view of them heading into a "get well" game against the weak Patriots defense.

  Cowboys | Dan Bailey hits game winner    Sun Oct 5, 04:38 PM

Dallas Cowboys PK Dan Bailey drilled the game-winning field goal in overtime from 49 yards in Week 5 against the Houston Texans. It was his ninth career game-winning field goal.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys are winning right now with a great offensive line and bend, but don't break defense, which usually puts the kicker in the spotlight. Bailey is one of the best fantasy kickers to own this year.

  Broncos | Matt Prater being released    Fri Oct 3, 01:47 PM

Denver Broncos PK Matt Prater is being released before he comes off his four-game suspension, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Broncos making an interesting statement here. There's about $2.3 million in dead money remaining on his contract. PK Brandon McManus has won the team's kicking job, and now Prater will have to look for a job elsewhere. He was almost suspended a full year for another alcohol violation, but his lawyer got the suspension reduced to 'only' four games.
