  Bengals | Giovani Bernard will play    Fri Oct 24, 02:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 24, and is probable for Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: You can't bench Bernard unless your team is stacked, but the deck is stacked against him with a tough Ravens defense coming to town and no AJ Green in the lineup this weekend.

  Colts | Trent Richardson could be game-time decision    Fri Oct 24, 01:46 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) has been doing rehab work this week but hasn't practiced. He could be a game-time decision in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Ahmad Bradshaw is a must start against the Steelers porous defense either way. Richardson is very risky if he is active because of the risk of re-injury of his hamstring.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams ruled out    Fri Oct 24, 01:34 PM

Footballguys view: Jonathan Stewart gets another start, but his upside is very limited in a tough matchup.

  Broncos | Ronnie Hillman continues to impress    Fri Oct 24, 01:25 PM

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman continues to run with confidence in the absence of RB Montee Ball (groin), and Ball will likely find it hard to win his starting job back when he's healthy. He showed impressive footwork and showed breakaway speed in the team's Week 8 win over the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Oct. 23, and he could have easily finished with two touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Hillman is established as a strong RB2 going forward. Montee Ball is not going to get a full feature back job when he returns, if he is even the starter.

  Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew set for more touches?    Fri Oct 24, 01:09 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew needs to see more carries, according to head coach Tony Sparano.

Footballguys view: That doesn't mean you should go out and pickup Jones-Drew, but it could hurt the limited upside of Darren McFadden, who has been a decent flex play since he emerged in the Oakland backfield.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles questionable    Fri Oct 24, 12:15 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Sproles seems likely to play and he has a high ceiling as a what the heck flex on the fast track in Arizona in their indoor stadium.

  Rams | Zac Stacy could remain a factor    Fri Oct 24, 10:53 AM

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy, who didn't have a touch in Week 7, could remain a factor in the backfield in Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Earlier in the week, head coach Jeff Fisher said Stacy could have 25 carries Sunday, Oct. 26. However, the team is likely to give RB Tre Mason every opportunity to develop the hot hand this weekend.

Footballguys view: Mason is still the best Rams back to own and play this weekend. If there is going to be a Rams RB emerge with consistent weekly value this year, it will be Mason.

  Lions | Reggie Bush listed as doubtful    Fri Oct 24, 10:45 AM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is listed as doubtful for the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26.

Footballguys view: Don't listen to Bush saying he'll play. With the early start and his limited upside and risk of an early end to his day in London, you can go to sleep Saturday night with Bush on your bench.

Reggie Bush player page


  Lions | Reggie Bush says he'll play Sunday    Fri Oct 24, 09:57 AM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) missed practice Friday, Oct. 24, but said he will play in Week 8 Sunday, Oct. 26.

Footballguys view: Bush is still not trustworthy because he is coming in banged up, and he is not as effective on natural tracks (especially potentially muddy tracks like Wembley Stadium often is).

  Broncos | Juwan Thompson handles goal-line duties    Fri Oct 24, 12:14 AM

Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson had seven carries for 24 yards, including a pair of short touchdown runs, in the team's Week 8 victory Thursday, Oct 23.

Footballguys view: Don't expect this Jerome Bettis-esque stat line to be repeated again. Ronnie Hillman had a few scores called back, and Thompson scored once as the up back lined up in front of Hillman in a goal line set. He is still the back to handcuff to Hillman if you want to secure the top two option in the Denver running game right now.

  Cardinals | Andre Ellington's foot still sore    Thu Oct 23, 10:52 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) said the partially torn tendon in his foot probably won't feel better until after the year. 'I understand it's never going to feel good,' Ellington said. 'It's probably not going to feel good until January or February or whenever the season is over with.'

Footballguys view: Ellington hasn't hit his ceiling for dynasty leagues, and in redraft he will carry this limited ceiling for the rest of the season, but he is showing his toughness under a heavy workload, and Ellington is still on track to be one of the most valuable fantasy running backs this year and long term.

  Titans | Shonn Green limited again    Thu Oct 23, 05:41 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: We'll see Bishop Sankey as the lead back for the Titans in Week 8 against the Texans. The rookie hasn't been overly impressive, but it looks like Greene's role (if he plays) will be a small one.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard still limited    Thu Oct 23, 04:43 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Right now we have Bernard as an RB2, but if he doesn't go, Jeremy Hill becomes a nice play. Right now, Hill is a RB4, but he could really move up in production if Bernard is out. Keep an eye on this.

  Packers | James Starks limited Thursday    Thu Oct 23, 04:33 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 23, after not practicing Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Starks isn't worth much with Eddie Lacy playing well, even if Lacy isn't as good as he played last season. We have Lacy as an RB2 and Starks way back in the RB4 ranks.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams out again    Thu Oct 23, 04:26 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) didn't practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: You know what would be news? If Williams wasn't out. Maybe that's the bar to set for whether Williams is newsworthy. Last week Jonathan Stewart was awful and he faces a Seattle defense which, even a shadow of its 2013 self, is still enough to keep him as no more than a weak RB3.

  Saints | Khiry Robinson doesn't practice Thursday    Thu Oct 23, 04:22 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Robinson may not play with Ingram (RB2) back. At best, Robinson is an RB5 this week and is best avoided.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas sits out of practice    Thu Oct 23, 04:21 PM

New Orleans RB Pierre Thomas (ribs, shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Thomas is likely out especially with Mark Ingram back. We see Ingram as a lower-end RB2 with Travaris Cadet as a low-end RB3 play.

  Bills | Fred Jackson does not practice    Thu Oct 23, 04:07 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Jackson could return in Week 10 after the Bills Week 9 bye. If you have to put a Buffalo running back in the mix, then try Anthony Dixon as an RB3. The Jets defense hasn't been as good against the run as they were early on so Dixon could have some success.

  Jaguars | Denard Robinson to start    Thu Oct 23, 03:51 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson will start at running back in Week 8 even if RB Toby Gerhart (foot) is active, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Gerhart will receive some playing time if he plays.

Footballguys view: He should start as he's been much more effective than Toby Gerhart. Even when healthy, Gerhart seemed to be wearing molasses shoes. At best, Robinson is a low-end RB2 with upside which really tells you all you need to know about those molasses shoes Gerhart wore (which Nike should not put out for the public).

  Colts | Trent Richardson misses practice    Thu Oct 23, 03:15 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Richardson actually showed up last week but we don't know that we trust it as a trend. We're cautiously optimistic about him but would only try him as a RB3/flex.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles limited     Thu Oct 23, 02:52 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: With the knee injury and a suddenly effective LeSean McCoy, Sproles might be limited this weekend. He's a RB4 start if you need him, but try to find something else if possible.

  Lions | Reggie Bush day-to-day    Thu Oct 23, 02:31 PM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle), who missed practice Thursday, Oct. 23, said he will do his best to push through his injury and suit up for the team's Week 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons in London. "The ankle's good -- just taking it day by day," Bush said. "I'm trying to do my best to just be smart, make sure I'm healthy. Obviously I want to be out there on the field Sunday, and I'm going to do everything I can to be out there on the field Sunday, but I'm also going to be smart about it, too, so it feels good , practiced yesterday, and we'll see how it goes today.'

Footballguys view: Of he plays we have him as no more than an RB3 and as his game is 9:30am EST (that's 6:30am for you poor folks out west), this is a risky play unless you know for sure he will be in the game or that you can avoid hitting the snooze alarm so you can get up and check the inactive list.

  Jets | Full practice for Chris Johnson     Thu Oct 23, 02:21 PM

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Johnson has been a bust in this offense and even when they use him correctly, he hasn't performed. He's a bench warmer for fantasy purposes, no better than a RB4 right now. Ivory aka "a bowling ball made of knives" is the guy to own in this offense and is a low-end RB2 or a great RB3/flex.
