From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 26): The rollercoaster ride for Fournette's value this year continues, as he was the primary receiving back and outplayed Ronald Jones as a runner in Week 7. This offense will produce copious scoring opportunities and Fournette is poised to take advantage of that along with Jones inability to gain trust as a receiver. He's at least a flex play against the Giants this week.

General News (Thu Oct 29): was tabbed as the nickel back for head coach Bruce Arians, as he is expected to play in hurry-up and obvious passing situations. The role is a big reason he played more snaps in Week 7 against the Las Vegas Raiders, supplanting LeSean McCoy from the role.
