  Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill limited again    Thu Nov 20, 06:50 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: Tannehill faces a tough defense, but has been playing well. We are optimistic that he produces, though only as a solid QB2.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers a full participant    Thu Nov 20, 06:11 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: Rivers hasn't looked right since San Diego was curb-stomped by Miami a while back. We don't trust him much this week, ranking him as a QB2....and a middle-of-the-road one at that.

  Texans | Ryan Mallett a full participant    Thu Nov 20, 05:59 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett (chest) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: Mallett looked OK last week, but we wouldn't roll him out there in your fantasy lineup. He's a QB3 at best.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo practices in full    Thu Nov 20, 04:52 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) returned to a full practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: After resting during the bye in Week 11, Romo looks very good for this week's match. We have Romo as a solid QB1 against the Giants.

  Patriots | Tom Brady participates fully    Thu Nov 20, 04:52 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: We're not worried about Brady and expect QB1 numbers from him again this week.

  Bills | Kyle Orton limited again    Thu Nov 20, 04:36 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Kyle Orton (toe) was limited for the second straight day in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. The Bills did not actually practice Thursday, so Orton's status is an estimation.

Footballguys view: The Jets are a tempting target for any fantasy quarterback, and we have him as a QB2. We don't know when the game will be played or where, much less in what conditions and the Bills aren't practicing so they will come into the game cold (pun not intended). So there is an element of the unknown to this, but if you're stuck he's worth the risk.

  Jets | Thursday practice report    Thu Nov 20, 04:17 PM

New York Jets CB Jaiquawn Jarrett (calf) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. OG Oday Aboushi (shoulder), LB Antwan Barnes (knee), OG Willie Colon (knee), WR T.J. Graham (neck), LB David Harris (shoulder), C Nick Mangold (shoulder), LB Trevor Reilly (knee), WR Greg Salas (wrist), QB Geno Smith (shoulder) and CB Darrin Walls (calf) practiced in full.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles a full participant    Thu Nov 20, 04:12 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: Bortles needs to sit back in this matchup against the Colts and watch how Andrew Luck gets it done. The rookie has struggled to improve this year, and this minor wrist injury doesn't help.

  Cowboys | Tomy Romo will practice    Thu Nov 20, 11:43 AM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: Romo seemed to come out of last week with no back-issues (or more honestly, no new back issues) and should be ready to go against the New York Giants this week in a great matchup. The Giants secondary has a lot of injury issues, and he'll take advantage of it. Start Romo as a QB1 and don't look back.

  Giants | Eli Manning wants to stay    Thu Nov 20, 03:33 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning told reporters on Wednesday, Nov. 19, that he wanted to retire from football as a Giant. No details of a new contract or extension were announced, but sources indicate the team would like to keep him. Giants owner John Mara, in a separate interview, said he believes Manning has 'a lot of good years left.'

Footballguys view: It's hard to find a franchise quarterback--just as fellow Metlife tenant the New York Jets--so casting Manning aside without a plan isn't wise. Ryan Nassib looked good in preseason but we all know preseason and regular season action don't mix. Manning has mostly been good this year, last week's debacle aside and considering the awful state of his offensive line and the shattered receiver corps he has had to work with.

  Texans | Ryan Mallett fully practices     Wed Nov 19, 06:15 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett (chest) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Footballguys view: Mallett was 'okay' in his first start with the Texans last week. Expect the team to run the ball a lot in order to keep things simple for their inexperienced quarterback.

  Raiders | Derek Carr probably against Chiefs    Wed Nov 19, 05:54 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (quadriceps) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 19, and is probable for Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: The rookie is going to be under duress early and often against the Chiefs on Thursday night. Don't expect much from the passing game unless it's during garbage time.

  Bills | Kyle Orton listed as limited    Wed Nov 19, 04:35 PM

  Cowboys | Tony Romo not practicing    Wed Nov 19, 03:53 PM

  Eagles | Nick Foles throws during warmups    Wed Nov 19, 02:50 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone) did some throwing during warmups Wednesday, Nov. 19, but did not participate in practice.

Footballguys view: There's no word on Foles' timetable right now. If Mark Sanchez performs well, there's no guarantee that Foles would even come back to a starting job. It's a good sign that he's throwing, but it's no indication of how quickly he'll be back on the field. It's a step in the process....but we're still early in that process.

Cincinnati Bengals QB A.J. McCarron (shoulder) returned to practice Tuesday, Nov. 18, but he is still on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list. McCarron's 21-day window begins Tuesday where he can practice with the team without counting on the active roster. He can be activated at any point during that window.

  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.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers not receiving treatment    Mon Nov 17, 04:41 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (rib) is not receiving treatment on the rib injury he suffered in Week 11, according to head coach Mike McCoy.

Footballguys view: Rivers was a bit banged up in the Week 11 game against the Raiders. In addition to his ribs, the team also checked out his left knee (it was fine) during the game. Rivers could be limited in practice this week.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin critiqued by coach    Mon Nov 17, 03:21 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III had fundamental flaws and below average footwork Sunday, Nov. 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Griffin looks like a shadow of his former self. It's not just the knee problems that have slowed him down, Griffin looks like he's rushing things mechanically as a passer. His technique runs hot and cold---and so does his decision making. With his propensity for making mistakes, Griffin makes for a risky fantasy play.

  Bills | Staying with Kyle Orton    Mon Nov 17, 02:24 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Kyle Orton will continue to be the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

Footballguys view: Of course they're staying with Orton. He's largely uninspiring, but their next option is to turn things over to E.J. Manuel again.

  Panthers | Cam Newton checked for concussion    Mon Nov 17, 01:18 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (head) was checked for a possible concussion in the first quarter of the team's Week 11 game but was cleared to play.

Footballguys view: Newton looked better this week than he did on Monday night in Week 10 against the Eagles. That's a good sign for his health status moving forward.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford breaks record    Mon Nov 17, 12:47 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford passes 20,000 career passing yards in Week 11, to become the faster quarterback in NFL history to reach that mark. Sunday's game was just Stafford's 71st career game. Dan Marino previously held the mark in 74 games.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers battling rib injury    Sun Nov 16, 10:34 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (ribs) suffered a rib injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 11 game against the Oakland Raiders. TE Antonio Gates said Sunday, Nov. 16, Rivers has been playing with a severe rib injury, but 'he's been toughing it out these last three or four weeks.' Rivers downplayed the situation, and said he is no more banged up than any other quarterback in the league.

Footballguys view: Rivers didn't look like himself against the Dolphins, and now we might have a reason why. It'll be tough to want to play him against the Rams defense that just ate up Peyton Manning if all Rivers can muster against the Raiders is 13 points.

  Texans | Ryan Mallett wins first start    Sun Nov 16, 09:39 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett made his first career start in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns. He threw for 211 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Mallett revived the value of Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins and made the offense look very smooth. He should keep the viability of the Texans offense intact and probably at a higher level than Ryan Fitzpatrick set it during his stint as the starter.

  Browns | Brian Hoyer struggles in loss    Sun Nov 16, 09:36 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer completed 20 of his 50 pass attempts for 330 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 11 game against the Houston Texans. He is the fourth NFL quarterback since 1988 to at throw at least 50 passes with a complete percentage of 40 percent or lower.

Footballguys view: Hoyer was let down by some drops, but his scattershot accuracy was a problem as the Browns tried to get back into this game. He should be helped by the return of Josh Gordon next week, but Hoyer is not a viable option.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning's record streak ends    Sun Nov 16, 08:19 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning saw his NFL record streak of 15 games with at least two touchdown passes ended in Week 11 against the St. Louis Rams.

Footballguys view: The seven points were the fewest for Peyton-led team since a playoff loss to the Patriots in 2004 when the Colts had only three points. Next week brings another ferocious pass rush in the Dolphins.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers able to continue    Sun Nov 16, 06:11 PM

  Bengals | Andy Dalton steps up his game    Sun Nov 16, 06:09 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 16 of his 22 pass attempts for 220 yards and three touchdowns in Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints, posting a career-high passer rating of 143.9 in the process. He credited former Bengals QB Boomer Esiason for a conversation earlier in the week. 'He said, 'Go play your game',' Dalton said Sunday, Nov. 16. ''Get this thing going. Don't let that Thursday game mean anything. Get everyone going because we're talented'. It meant a lot to me. I'm glad he reached out. He's somebody I can talk to.'

Footballguys view: Dalton's swing was the biggest one-week spread in passer rating in NFL history. While it's good to see him regain form, the wide range of possible outcomes makes us queasy at the idea of plugging him in our lineups.

  Bears | Mixed results for Jay Cutler    Sun Nov 16, 04:50 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler completed 72 percent of his throws for a 98.0 passer rating and three touchdowns in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. However, he also threw two interceptions.

Footballguys view: Cutler was better, but a lot of his success was based on his receiver playing much better and finishing his aspirational throws with great plays. The Tampa defense ate up Robert Griffin III this week, but Cutler should still be in strong consideration to be in your lineup against them next week.
