  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.

  Broncos | Wes Welker an afterthought in Week 8    Fri Oct 24, 01:21 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker had just two catches for five yards on two targets in Week 8, and he's averaging just 36 yards per game this year, which is less than half his average (77) in the last seven seasons.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald has owned Philly    Fri Oct 24, 12:53 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has at least one touchdown (10 total) and averages 6.7 catches for 107 yards in six career games against the Philadelphia Eagles, his Week 8 opponent. However, Fitzgerald is tempering his expectations this time around, as he knows he isn't the target magnet he once was. He's only on pace for 61 catches for 755 yards this season. Head coach Bruce Arians isn't concerned with anyone on the team building their stats, and the offense thrives on spreading the ball around. Only RB Andre Ellington (25 catches) has more than Fitzgerald on the team.

  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.

  Bengals | A.J. Green not practicing    Fri Oct 24, 11:35 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is not practicing Friday, Oct. 24. It's the third straight day he has missed practice, making it unlikely that he'll be able to play in Week 8.

Footballguys view: Green won't be back to save the Bengals offense this week. Mohamed Sanu is a boom/bust WR3/Flex play and Giovani Bernard could get more targets, but do less with them.

  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 | Calvin Johnson listed as questionable    Fri Oct 24, 10:47 AM

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26. Johnson was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 24.

Footballguys view: Johnson is a true game time decision. With the Lions saying they won't play him unless he's really ready to return, and a Week 9 bye giving them every incentive to sit him if there is any question, Johnson is worth playing if he is active. We should know around 8 am eastern whether that is the case on Sunday. Go to bed on Saturday with Johnson on your bench just to be safe.

  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.

  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).

  Lions | Brandon Pettigrew a game-time decision    Fri Oct 24, 09:15 AM

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (foot) will be a game-time decision Sunday, Oct. 26. TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) is unlikely to play this weekend.

Footballguys view: New Lion Kellen Davis could get significant snaps at tight end for Detroit with all of the injuries at the position, but he has no fantasy value.

  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.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders scores three TDs    Fri Oct 24, 12:06 AM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had nine catches on nine targets for a team-high 120 yards and three touchdowns in the team's Week 8 game Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Sanders hadn't hit paydirt through the first five weeks, but we know that was just a temporary condition. He has the same low WR1/high WR2 value that Eric Decker had last year.

  Titans | Zach Mettenberger could open up offense    Thu Oct 23, 11:18 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger prides himself in his strong arm, WR Kendall Wright said, and the team is hoping that Mettenberger can bring a new element to a passing attack that ranks 27th in the NFL in completed passes of 20 or more yards.

Footballguys view: Justin Hunter could be the main beneficiary here, but he has to also pick up his level of play and consistency to become relevant in fantasy leagues this year. If you've been holding him, the installation of Mettenberger is a good enough reason to hold onto Hunter for at least one more week.

  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.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III back in Week 11?    Thu Oct 23, 09:38 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could return in Week 11, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'I would think -- I would guarantee Tampa, most likely, unless something happens between now and then,' Gruden said Tuesday, Oct. 23. 'You've got a good bye week, you've got a couple weeks to make sure it's ready. Obviously Robert is a quick healer. He works extremely hard in the training room. So the process could be sped up a little bit depending on how he feels.'

Footballguys view: Griffin won't be back for this week or next, making Colt McCoy a rosterable player in leagues where every starting QB is kept and has value such as QB flex and 2 QB leagues.

  Packers | Randall Cobb in a groove    Thu Oct 23, 09:04 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said he feels much better about his level of play in recent weeks than he did at the start of the year. 'You just kind of get in a zone,' Cobb said. 'It's like a runner's high, or writing an exam paper and you're on page 7, and the next thing you know you're on page 12. It's just one of those things where you continue to press on, and things happen.'

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin had just 3.08 yards per target through the air this year with the Seattle Seahawks, compared to 9.49 yards per target in his rookie season with the Minnesota Vikings.

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (ankle) did not practice in full Thursday, Oct. 23.

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks has been targeted 22 times in just two home games so far this year. He totaled eight catches for 74 yards in Week 3 and nine catches for 56 yards in Week 5.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson wants to stay    Thu Oct 23, 06:31 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson, who has been the subject of trade rumors lately, said he prefers to remain with the team. 'In this business, those kinds of things get talked about quite often. Each and every year, there's going to be guys moved around to different teams,' Jackson said. 'I'm not surprised by it. Obviously I appreciate teams' interest, but I'm happy here in Tampa. I've heard nothing here that would suggest I'm going anywhere. I'm going to let that pass on and keep doing my job.' Jackson leads the team in with 25 catches for 344 yards and two touchdowns this year.

Footballguys view: There were rumors swirling that Jackson was on the trade block. Never say never, but the Bucs would be wise to keep their best offensive asset around....unless they get a deal they can't refuse.
