  Bengals | A.J. Green absent at practice    Wed Oct 22, 04:32 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) wasn't feeling good enough to return to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Head coach Marvin Lewis said Green won't play in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens unless he's 'significantly healed,' but left the door open for Green to play. "It's hard for me to put a guy out there Sunday that I don't think can last a full game," Lewis said. "If we have A.J. for part of the game doing certain things, that would be great. I think we could operate offensively ... I guess we'll cross that bridge when the time comes."

  Jets | Percy Harvin won't play 50 snaps    Wed Oct 22, 02:18 PM

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin won't play 50 snaps in his debut with the team in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: The Jets made an interesting move by adding Harvin here, but fantasy owners should wait and see how things work out before rushing to get him in the lineup. In the first week with his new team, Harvin is a low-end WR4.

  Jets | Eric Decker limited     Wed Oct 22, 02:10 PM

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

  Dolphins | Jarvis Landy moving up depth chart    Wed Oct 22, 02:07 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has moved ahead of WR Brandon Gibson on the team's depth chart. Gibson said no one has explained to him why he was inactive for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Landry is an exciting rookie for fantasy owners to monitor. He's a good route-runner and Landry has the ability to make tough catches seem routine.

  Falcons | Julio Jones looking to improve    Wed Oct 22, 01:35 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said he should be blamed for the team's offensive struggles, because he needs to make plays when given the chance. 'It starts with me,' Jones said. 'I got to go out there and make plays when they are presented to me. I got to go out there and catch the ball, be more of a deep threat. ... We are out there misreading or dropping balls. We have to fix that. It's nothing that the defense is doing, we have to fix that here.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to stick with Jones. He's a huge part of the passing game, and the team lacks a ton of assets on offense. We like Jones as a WR1 in Week 8 even though he's been a bit disappointing over the last two weeks.

  Falcons | Julio Jones limited    Wed Oct 22, 12:08 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners have been disappointed with Jones in the last couple of weeks. He's a little banged up with this ankle injury, but he needs to be in your lineup as a low-end WR1.

  Lions | Calvin Johnson sitting out    Wed Oct 22, 10:03 AM

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Lions head coach Jim Caldwell stated earlier this week that Johnson would need to be 100 percent healthy in order to play against the Falcons. The Lions have a bye next week, so they might be better off shutting down Johnson for one more week.

  Falcons | Harry Douglas not practicing    Wed Oct 22, 08:43 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) will not practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Douglas traveled to London with the team and hopes to play in Week 8.

Footballguys view: We're not trusting anyone in the Falcons passing game not named Julio Jones or Roddy White. Douglas may play, but fantasy owners don't need to pay much attention to it.

  Giants | Looking at free agents    Wed Oct 22, 02:49 AM

  Lions | Golden Tate making consistent impact    Tue Oct 21, 11:28 PM

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate is one of just two receivers to have at least five receptions in each of the first seven games of the season.

Footballguys view: Tate has been amazing for the Lions this year. He was certainly one of the most underrated free agent additions this offseason. Tate has especially shined with the team missing Calvin Johnson in the lineup.

  Seahawks | Paul Richardson earns targets    Tue Oct 21, 08:22 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson caught four passes on five targets for 33 yards in Week 7. Richardson was targeted just once in the team's first five games.

Footballguys view: Richardson is an exciting rookie for fantasy owners to keep tabs on. He has a skill set reminiscent of DeSean Jackson because his speed can get on top of the defense in the blink of an eye. We'll see if he can continue to earn a larger role going forward.

  Rams | Sign two to practice squad    Tue Oct 21, 05:14 PM

The St. Louis Rams signed free-agent WRs Kadron Boone (Eagles) and Devon Wylie (49ers) to their practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Footballguys view: Wylie was once an interesting prospect in dynasty leagues. He's been unable to stick on more than one roster despite having incredible natural ability. Wylie is quick, fast and agile--but he struggles staying healthy and with consistency. We're no longer interested in him...even in the deepest of deep dynasty leagues.

  Lions | Calvin Johnson must be 100 percent    Tue Oct 21, 05:11 PM

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) will only return in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons if he's 100 percent healthy, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. 'It's not going to be a thing of degrees,' Caldwell said. 'When they say he's cleared, he's ready to go and he's feeling great, when they doctors say, OK, that's when it's going to happen. It's not going to be a whole lot of in between.' Johnson has missed six straight practices.

Footballguys view: We're okay with the team holding out Johnson until he's fully ready to return. We saw him struggle with this ankle injury for a couple of weeks, and he just didn't look the same. Keep watching for Johnson's practice status each day.

  Jets | Jeremy Kerley's extension official    Tue Oct 21, 04:06 PM

New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley officially signed a four-year, $16 million extension Tuesday, Oct. 21. Kerley will receive $5.4 million of guaranteed money. He has 22 catches for 201 yards and a touchdown this year.

Footballguys view: Kerley was nearing the end of his rookie contract, and now he's locked up through the 2018 season. The Jets just acquired Percy Harvin last week, and they added Eric Decker in free agency earlier this year. Even though the future of their quarterback position is up in the air, the Jets are setting themselves up at wide receiver.

  Dolphins | Make two roster moves    Tue Oct 21, 02:29 PM

The Miami Dolphins signed free-agent WR LaRon Byrd (Cowboys) and re-signed DT Deandre Coleman Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Footballguys view: Byrd is a huge target with a large wingspan. We're keeping an eye on him in super super deep dynasty leagues, but that's it.

  Lions | Calvin Johnson resumes running    Tue Oct 21, 01:03 PM

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) said he is back to running Tuesday, Oct. 21. Johnson sat out in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints and appears to be trying to return sooner rather than later.

Footballguys view: Watch Johnson's practice status to see if he's ready to play in Week 8. They play the Falcons this week, but then the Lions have a bye the week after that. It might be wise to let Johnson rest through the bye.

  Steelers | Martavis Bryant emerges as another WR option    Tue Oct 21, 12:48 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant cut into WR Markus Wheaton's workload in Week 7 against the Houston Texans, and QB Ben Roethlisberger took three 'shot' plays down the field to Bryant. The team is unsettled at receiver behind WR Antonio Brown, with WRs Wheaton, Lance Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey fighting for targets. It was the first game in which Bryant was active this year.

  Colts | Reggie Wayne could miss a game or two    Tue Oct 21, 12:45 PM

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne's (elbow) injury isn't believed to be serious, but it could cause him to miss a game or two, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Head coach Chuck Pagano hasn't revealed the results of Wayne's MRI exams, however. Wayne said his injury wasn't serious after the Week 7 win. He finished the game against the Cincinnati Bengals with just four catches for 15 yards, and he had two drops. WR Hakeem Nicks could receive a heavier workload if Wayne needs some time to heal from his injury. Nicks had zero catches on one target against the Bengals after catching just two passes for 18 yards the previous week.

Footballguys view: We're way more excited about rookie Donte Moncrief than we are Nicks. With Wayne out, we could see Moncrief get a real opportunity to impress in one of the league's more robust passing games. He's a big target who can make plays above the rim because of his size, wingspan and leaping ability. Fantasy owners in deeper leagues need to take a look at Moncrief.

  Bengals | A.J. Green's status up in the air    Tue Oct 21, 12:09 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) said his return from a toe injury is 'still up in the air' heading into Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens. However, Green said he's making nice progress, and his toe feels much better. Green hasn't played since Week 5 against the New England Patriots. 'It's probably not going to be 100 percent,' Green said. 'I hope it's just manageable and I can get through the season and be fine and still play at a high level.'

Footballguys view: The team is going to monitor Green as he works through the week of practice. This situation could go either way, so make sure to check back each day for practice status updates.
