  Falcons | Devonta Freeman surgery update    Tue Oct 16, 05:38 PM

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (groin) will have his groin surgery Thursday, Oct. 18, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Freeman could have tried to have play through this injury but decided surgery was his best option. He could be a candidate to return later this year but per rule Freeman must miss eight weeks of action on the IR list. The Falcons turn to a duo of Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith in the backfield.

  Raiders | Concern for Marshawn Lynch     Tue Oct 16, 04:32 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) could have a long-term issue with his groin ailment, according to head coach Jon Gruden.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation during the Raiders Week 7 bye. If Lynch has to miss time due to this injury then Doug Martin would step into a larger role. Jalen Richard is snaring quite a few passes as a receiver out of the backfield (31 catches, 253 yards) so far this year.

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman out of commission    Tue Oct 16, 02:15 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot, groin) is undergoing surgery on his injured groin and is being placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Freeman decided to go under the knife rather than try to manage this groin injury. He could return later in the year if his recovery goes well. In the meantime, the Falcons turn to a duo of Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith in his absence.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is not expected to report this week, according to a source. The Steelers are on a bye this week, but Bell could report Monday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Bell was supposed to report during the team's bye week (this week) but now that doesn't seem to be the case. We'll see if he shows up next Monday.

  Jaguars | Leonard Fournette runs Monday    Mon Oct 15, 06:19 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) was able to some running Monday, Oct. 15, and looked good, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

Footballguys view: Fournette has only played in two games this year. He hasn't been on the field since the team's Week 4 game against the Jets. It's a good sign that he's running and looking good but it doesn't mean he's back. The Jaguars have a bye in Week 9 and there's a chance Fournette still has to miss some more time. Stay tuned.

  Jets | Two injured players could return to practice    Mon Oct 15, 05:38 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) and FS Rontez Miles (knee) will be eligible to participate in practice this week, but head coach Todd Bowles would not say if either will take part in practice. McGuire is currently on the Reserve/Injured list, while Miles is on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on McGuire if you play in a deep league with a large bench. He can make plays as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. McGuire will be eligible to return after Week 8 of the regular season.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson day-to-day    Mon Oct 15, 03:52 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) is day-to-day with the rib and knee issues that kept him out of action in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries just come down to pain tolerance, so monitor Thompson's work in practice during the week. Head coach Jay Gruden told reporters he was unsure of what Thompson's workload would be in practice early this week.

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman likely to sit again Week 7    Mon Oct 15, 03:21 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot, groin) is not expected to play in Week 7 versus the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: That means Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith continue to share the work in the backfield for the Falcons. Against the Giants in Week 7, Coleman has RB2/flex appeal while Smith is a deep flex or 'what the heck' flex for Fantasy GMs.

  Browns | Nick Chubb to see more work?    Mon Oct 15, 03:11 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb ran for 25 yards on three carries in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers, and head coach Hue Jackson suggested for the second time in three weeks that Chubb needs to get more carries.

Footballguys view: Chubb has the ability to take over in the Browns backfield if he only gets the opportunity. He's a natural runner with instincts and power. Chubb can handle a large workload but he should still split time with Carlos Hyde even if his role does grow.

  Texans | D'Onta Foreman unlikely to be active Week 7    Mon Oct 15, 01:09 PM

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') is not expected to be activated in Week 7 to face the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara not taking a back seat    Mon Oct 15, 12:07 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara's nine offensive touches in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins were a byproduct of the team's several explosive plays in that game and not a reduced role, according to head coach Sean Payton, who expects more balance between Kamara and Mark Ingram going forward.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs are not going to shy away from Kamara. He didn't get much of a chance to perform against Washington with Drew Brees setting records and filling the air with footballs in Week 5. We'll see Kamara back at his normal RB1 production in Week 7.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell absent    Mon Oct 15, 10:44 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is absent from meetings during the bye week Monday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: Bell was supposedly going to report to the team at some point during the bye week. He could show up later in the week, so stay tuned to this fluid situation. Upon his return, reports now indicate the Steelers will use Bell in a RBBC with James Conner.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell still an unknown    Mon Oct 15, 08:13 AM

Updating an ongoing story, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell hasn't told the team when he'll report, but NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport expects Bell to return to a committee with RB James Conner.

Footballguys view: Bell is expected to return at some point in Week 7 when the Steelers are on a bye. No word as to when that exactly will happen. The team is moving the ball with Conner and he should retain a role when Bell comes back. That being said, Bell could be the lead back in the Steelers committee. Stay tuned.

  Steelers | James Conner to remain involved    Mon Oct 15, 08:12 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner is expected to remain involved in a committee when and if RB Le'Veon Bell returns, in the opinion of NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Conner has been doing an outstanding job this year for the Steelers. He has 453 rushing yards (5th highest in the NFL) and a whopping seven touchdowns (2nd most) on the ground after six games. The Steelers may want Bell out there as the lead back to get as much out of him as they can (before they lose him), but Bell first has to report to the team. Stay tuned.
