  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.

  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.

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.

  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.

  Chiefs | KC makes several moves    Tue Oct 22, 12:56 PM

  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.

  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.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) will not be automatically ruled out for Week 8, although head coach Zac Taylor told reporters he won't play Green against the Los Angeles Rams unless he can practice in full.

Footballguys view: Green is getting closer to a return but there's no clear timetable...because there has never really been one. Many have speculated that Green won't return to the field until after the trade deadline on the 29th of October. We'll see if Green can actually get a full practice in this week. Stash him on your bench if he's out there on the waiver wire.

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) underwent an MRI on Monday, Oct. 21, that confirmed much of the optimism reporters heard after the team's Week 7 game. While Thielen will likely miss Week 8 versus the Washington Redskins, he should be fine after that, according to Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Vikings here. Without Thielen on Thursday night, Stefon Diggs should be in for an incredibly large workload.

  Texans | Will Fuller likely to miss several weeks    Mon Oct 21, 12:43 PM

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is expected to miss 'several weeks' after suffering 'a rather significant hamstring pull,' according to a source via NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Fuller is incredibly talented but he's oft-injured. A hamstring injury, especially one this severe, can really limit a speedy receiver like Fuller. The Texans turn to Kenny Stills in his place, and we should see Keke Coutee work as the team's No. 3 receiver with Fuller out.
