  Browns | Elijah McGuire let go    Wed Oct 23, 12:17 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Elijah McGuire was released from the practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the Browns try to keep McGuire around on the practice squad. He's a good change-of-pace back but has now failed to impress with the Jets and the Browns.

  Falcons | Calvin Ridley promoted to No. 2 role    Tue Oct 22, 10:44 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley was listed as the No. 2 receiver on the version of the Falcons' depth chart released following the trade of WR Mohamed Sanu Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Ridley was already the No. 2 receiver as Sanu was primarily the slot receiver for the Falcons. Russell Gage takes over the slot duties for the Falcons now.

  Bills | Duke Williams stays highly involved    Tue Oct 22, 10:39 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Duke Williams ranked third among the team's receivers with 30 offensive snaps played in the Week 7 matchup against the Miami Dolphins Sunday, Oct. 20.

Footballguys view: We're monitoring Williams in super deep dynasty formats. The leading receiver in the CFL in 2018, Williams has a good size/speed combination and is earning the trust of QB Josh Allen.

  Lions | Kerryon Johnson placed on IR    Tue Oct 22, 09:45 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) was placed on Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Lions head coach Matt Patricia believes that Johnson will be able to return towards the end of the regular season. This is two years in a row that Johnson has dealt with knee problems. The Lions now turn to rookie Ty Johnson as their starter. They'll use J.D. McKissic working as a change-of-pace back.

  Eagles | Miles Sanders' time coming?    Tue Oct 22, 09:06 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders led his team's running back committee with 35 offensive snaps in the Week 7 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: The team is wanting to get Sanders move involved in the offense. So long as he can pass protect at an acceptable level, Sanders could be the lead back in the offense. Jordan Howard should remain as a banger when the team needs to run the ball and pick up tough yards.

  Texans | Duke Johnson gets more work    Tue Oct 22, 09:00 PM

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson out-snapped RB Carlos Hyde 39-to-26 in the Week 7 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Oct. 20.

Footballguys view: Johnson has the skill to handle a larger workload. We'll see if the Texans continue on this trend of getting Johnson more snaps than Hyde. Johnson has flex appeal in PPR leagues.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard confident he'll return soon    Tue Oct 22, 08:32 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) said Tuesday, Oct. 22, he's confident he'll return to the field soon. 'Oh, I'll be back out on the field,' Shepard said. 'It's just whether it's gonna be this week or next week.'

Footballguys view: Shepard has been concussed twice this season, but he's symptom free over the last two weeks. He should be back at some point, but expect the Giants to be cautious. In the meantime, Golden Tate will be the top target in the passing game.

  Seahawks | Seattle adds Penny Hart to practice squad    Tue Oct 22, 06:04 PM

Free-agent WR Penny Hart (Colts) was signed to the practice squad of the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Hart is an electric slot receiver who can get open with ease. He's got speed and quickness, so we'll be monitoring him but only in crazy deep dynasty formats.

  Broncos | Tim Patrick likely back after bye week    Tue Oct 22, 04:55 PM

Denver Broncos WR Tim Patrick (hand) is expected to return to the active roster following the team's Week 10 bye, according to general manager and president of football operations John Elway.

Footballguys view: Patrick could factor into the passing game upon his return. The team needs wide receiver help after trading Emmanuel Sanders to the 49ers on Tuesday. Patrick is big and fast, so he's likely to play on the outside opposite of Courtland Sutton when he's ready.

  Cardinals | Alfred Morris finds new home in Arizona    Tue Oct 22, 04:34 PM

Free-agent RB Alfred Morris (Cowboys) signed an undisclosed contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals worked Morris out back in September and now go back to the veteran back. With David Johnson banged up, Morris gives the team veteran depth behind starter Chase Edmonds.

Footballguys view: Patricia believes that Johnson will be able to return towards the end of the regular season. This is two years in a row that Johnson has dealt with knee problems.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen a no-go Tuesday    Tue Oct 22, 03:37 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Thielen is going to miss one week of action with this hamstring injury. The Vikings play on Thursday night, so expect him to get back to practice next week. All the reports about his hamstring injury have been quite positive.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders dealt to 49ers    Tue Oct 22, 02:56 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders was traded along with a 2020 fifth-round pick to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for 2020 third- and fourth-round picks on Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: The Broncos weren't using Sanders that much anyway. Their passing game is not that great outside of Courtland Sutton and that's not going to change by getting rid of Sanders. DaeSean Hamilton gets to step into Sanders role but don't expect a lot from the disappointing second-year pro who has dropped too many passes and struggled to get open in 2019.

  49ers | San Fran lands Emmanuel Sanders    Tue Oct 22, 02:50 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders was traded along with a 2020 fifth-round pick to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for 2020 third- and fourth-round picks on Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: The 49ers needed help at the wide receiver position. Sanders has been a little banged up for the Broncos this year, and he was clearly frustrated by his lack of involvement in the offense. He should get plenty of work as the top receiver for the 49ers. Sanders has WR2 value for Fantasy GMs now that he's the 49ers No. 1 receiver.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen rapidly improving    Tue Oct 22, 12:34 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) is improving quickly, and he has a chance to play in Week 8 Thursday, Oct. 24, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Vikings here. Thielen is going to miss their game in Week 8...primarily because it's on Thursday night. We should see him back in action for Week 9.

  Panthers | Braxton Miller signs with Panthers    Tue Oct 22, 11:54 AM

Free-agent WR Braxton Miller (Browns) was signed to the Carolina Panthers' practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 22. CB Natrell Jamerson (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list, and WR DeAndrew White was signed to the 53-man roster.

Footballguys view: Miller has never played up to his potential as a pro. The converted college quarterback has been trying his hand at wide receiver for some time. He's super athletic but has never really put it all together. We'll see if he can impress on the Panthers practice squad.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson update    Tue Oct 22, 11:31 AM

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) has a Grade 1 high ankle sprain and a Grade 2 low ankle sprain.

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to see if Peterson is ready for Week 8. Washington travels to play Minnesota on Thursday night. With this banged up ankle, perhaps Peterson will get a smaller role. He claims to be good to go for Thursday, but Wendell Smallwood might get more work.

  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu sent to Pats    Tue Oct 22, 08:36 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu was traded to the New England Patriots Tuesday, Oct. 22, in exchange for a second-round pick.

Footballguys view: The Falcons move on from the veteran here and get quite the exchange in this trade. A second-round pick is a lot more than most expected they could get for Sanu. Russell Gage will take over the slot duties in Atlanta with Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley on the outside.

  Patriots | Mohamed Sanu acquired by Patriots    Tue Oct 22, 08:34 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu was acquired by the New England Patriots Tuesday, Oct. 22, in exchange for a second-round pick. The Patriots previously tried to acquire Sanu during the NFL draft.

Footballguys view: It's a pretty high price tag for the Patriots to pay, but they wanted him before the draft and now get their man since the Falcons season is in the tank. The addition of Sanu means Phillip Dorsett and Josh Gordon could be in for a smaller role. Also, expect to see Sanu used on a trick play here or there.
