We scour the news around the NFL to bring you what matters most to you and your dynasty team: the most current news on players, both superstars and the relative unknowns, and analysis to decipher the respective situations. These are many of the major stories and not meant to be an exhaustive look at all the recent happenings around the league.
The Miami Dolphins are in for a wild ride at the quarterback position. After beating the Bears last week with Brock Osweiler under center, Cinderella turned into a pumpkin against the Lions on Sunday. Ryan Tannehill is out a few weeks with a shoulder injury. He has struggled with injuries since arriving from Texas A&M. The team can save $13 million by letting the former first-round pick walk in the offseason. Early Sunday, Ian Rapoport said "it's hard to see" Tannehill returning this week. Back to Osweiler. Those who have followed his career know that it would only take time for him to have one of these games. We can foresee Miami letting Tannehill walk, keeping Osweiler as the backup, and drafting a quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft. The flaw in the logic is the Dolphins will be drafting in the middle of the first round and the top quarterbacks will be gone.
The Buffalo Bills signed Derek Anderson because of the Josh Allen elbow injury. The reason Anderson played over Nathan Peterman was best said by Dianna Russini. She said that coach McDermott "is in danger of losing the locker room" if Peterman got another start. Allen will miss multiple weeks at a time the Bills need him most. McDermott will need to rely on his defense even more than expected.
The Sony Michel injury against Chicago Sunday was ugly. His ankle was trapped under the defender late in the first half. James White dominated touches as Kenjon Barner ran tentatively and was largely ineffective. Michel was slow getting up to speed this season after getting his knee scoped in August. Details of the injury will come out as the week progresses. On Monday, Adam Schefter reported Michel has avoided structural damage and is considered week-to-week.
