Barring a setback, Graham is going to play, but his workload will be hard to predict after he was limited to two targets in Week 4.

"You've got a good bye week, you've got a couple weeks to make sure it's ready. ... You know, it's a very difficult position to play, and just because he's healthy, he hasn't taken a meaningful rep in about six weeks," Gruden said.

Cadet, a strict passing back, has been integrated into the gameplan early over the last three weeks anyway, posting a 15-129-1 line through the air.

    Advice: Gerhart is practicing on a limited basis this week and said he feels "pretty good" after taking the last two weeks off. However, his role is more uncertain than ever after Denard Robinson put a 22-127-1 line on the Browns last week. "I think we'll continue to mix and match a little bit," said OC Jedd Fisch. "I don't know exactly how that will all play out yet." We'd expect Robinson to start, but he's going to find the sledding very tough against an excellent Dolphins front. Gerhart will be a complementary early-down piece and Jordan Todman will handle a lot of third downs. It's not a terribly high-upside situation. Rotoworld.com

    The Broncos do not expect to do new contracts with Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas until after the season is over.

    Advice: This doesn't mean the Broncos are necessarily going to lose their superstars. Both Demaryius and Julius are in the final year of their rookie deals, yet GM John Elway will have a window between the end of the season and the free agency period to get new contracts done. He could also slap one with the franchise tag. If allowed to hit the market, Julius will at least get what Jimmy Graham recently landed (four years, $40M with $20.9 guaranteed) and Demaryius will rightfully be asking for Calvin Johnson money (eight years, $150.5M with $60 million guaranteed).

    The Nashville Tennessean reports the Titans will start sixth-round rookie Zach Mettenberger at quarterback in Week 8 against the Texans.

    Advice: Having already lost hope for the 2014 season, the Titans will start playing their pups. Injury-prone, contract-year quarterback Jake Locker has been formally demoted. It's believed Mettenberger was informed of coach Ken Whisenhunt's decision to start him on Tuesday night, which perhaps explains why none of Tennessee's quarterbacks were allowed to speak with the media on Wednesday. A strong-armed LSU product albeit with zero mobility, Mettenberger will make his first NFL start against J.J. Watt's Texans in a home game.

The earliest he'll return is likely Week 10, as the Saints play on Thursday night in Week 9. It opens up a nice window for Khiry Robinson to get a bump in snaps and Travaris Cadet to get on the PPR radar. Cadet's role was expanding a bit even before Thomas' injury, as he has 15-129-1 through the air over the last three weeks while exclusively playing in the pass game. Rotoworld.com

  • Skins 'planning' to start Colt McCoy Week 8
    Coach Jay Gruden announced Monday he is planning to start Colt McCoy at quarterback in Week 8 against the Cowboys.

    Advice: NBC's Dianna Marie Russini passes along that Robert Griffin III (ankle) "has been medically cleared to add to his workload," but the plan for now is to give McCoy the nod. After facing the Cowboys, the Redskins will play the Vikings in Week 9. That seems like Griffin's earliest-possible return date. In a home game against noodle-armed career journeyman backup McCoy, Dallas' fantasy defense will be worth a look as a Week 8 streamer. Rotoworld.com

    James Starks rushed seven times for 36 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 7 rout of the Panthers, but left early with a tweaked ankle.

    Advice: He also caught a seven-yard pass. Starks went down late in the third quarter, but almost certainly could have continued running were the Pack not running away with the game. He remained on the sideline in his helmet, which is almost always an indication a player could check back in. Starks continued to rotate with Eddie Lacy before going down, getting three series to himself. Starks cut back on his 13-yard score in the first quarter, displaying excellent vision. It was clear Lacy remained the 1A, however. Starks is a touchdown-dependent RB3, albeit one who should get plenty of scoring opportunities in Green Bay's elite offense. Rotoworld.com

    The New Orleans Times-Picayune suggests Jimmy Graham (shoulder, questionable) could be a situational red-zone player if active Sunday.

He was still dominant, closing the season with six touchdowns in the last six games despite playing on just 69.2 percent of the snaps during that span. The bottom line is that if Graham suits up Sunday, he has to be in lineups regardless of role. "It's an injury.

    A.J. Green (toe) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

    Advice: Green isn't going to play this week against the Colts. It'll be Mohamed Sanu, Brandon Tate, and Dane Sanzenbacher at receiver again for Cincinnati. Rotoworld.com

  • Eric Decker goes 4/65 versus Revis, Pats
    Eric Decker caught 4-of-7 passes for 65 yards in New York's Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: All things considered, it wasn't a terrible night on Darrelle Revis Island, but not an effort that got fantasy owners' weeks off to a roaring start. The best news is, Decker looked 100 percent healthy, and now has 10 days to rest his troublesome hamstring for Week 8 against the Bills. Decker should begin trending back toward WR2 status after his injury rendered him a WR3 for the better part of the season's first seven games. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Johnson totals 80 yards in Foxboro
    Chris Johnson rushed 13 times for 61 yards in New York's Week 7 loss to the Patriots, adding two catches for an additional 19 yards.

    Advice: Both the touches and yards were Johnson's most since Week 1. It was a game-plan specific outcome, as the Jets were committed to running the ball down New England's throat. CJ?K still got-touched 25-15 by Chris Ivory, and out-gained 125-80. Johnson will remain a middling FLEX play for Week 8, as the Jets will be doing battle with the Bills' elite run defense.

  • Decker and David Nelson both active vs. Jets
    Eric Decker (hamstring) and David Nelson (ankle) are active for Week 7 against the Patriots.

    Advice: Decker will lead the Jets' receiver corps after escaping his Week 6 return without setbacks, but has an extremely tough short-week assignment in CB Darrelle Revis. He's a low-end WR3. Rotoworld.com

    Pierre Thomas (illness) missed Thursday's practice.

    Advice: It's not a concern for Thomas' Week 7 status. He'll almost certainly be listed as "probable" on Friday's injury report. He'll be good to go as a FLEX option against the Lions. Rotoworld.com

  • RGIII (ankle) getting in limited practices
    Robert Griffin III (ankle) was limited in Wednesday and Thursday's practices.

    Advice: RGIII isn't returning for Sunday's game against the Titans, but Week 8 is beginning to look like a real possibility. The Redskins' bye isn't until Week 10, and there's no reason for foot dragging after Kirk Cousins predictably went in the tank. If Griffin was dropped in your 12-14 team league, now could be a good time to take a flier if you're looking to mix things up at quarterback. Rotoworld.com

    There's no timetable for Harry Douglas' return from a foot injury.

  • Payton won't say how carries will shake out
    When asked how running carries will be distributed Sunday, coach Sean Payton said, "we will kind of see how we handle that."

    Advice: Mark Ingram's return from a broken hand is obviously awful news for Khiry Robinson. Ingram was running at an elite level before his injury and it's not like he's coming off a knee or ankle issue. We expect him to hit the ground running as the primary big back, leaving Robinson for something like 6-8 touches against the Lions. Rotoworld.com

    Eric Decker (hamstring) is probable for Thursday night's game against the Patriots.

    Advice: It confirms he didn't suffer any setbacks in Sunday's loss. Decker will likely be matched up with Patriots CB Darrelle Revis, making him just a WR3 for Week 7. Rotoworld.com

  • Gruden: RGIII will be the starter once cleared
    Coach Jay Gruden confirmed Robert Griffin III (ankle) will be the Redskins' starting quarterback once he's cleared and "ready physically and mentally."

    Advice: Gruden said that could happen in one week, or it could be five weeks. But it's clear at the moment RGIII is going to get the starts under center in Washington once healthy. Kirk Cousins has "led" the Redskins to four consecutive losses, but there's always a chance he could catch fire and force Gruden to keep him in the lineup. The chances of that happening are minimal, as Cousins is a turnover machine and has never shown the ability to win games at the NFL level. There remains a chance Griffin could be back before the Week 10 bye. Rotoworld.com

    Reggie Bush (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Bush missed Week 6 mostly as a "precaution." He's fully expected to play this week versus New Orleans. Bush will be an RB2 in a potential shootout against a Saints defense that is surrendering the tenth-most PPR fantasy points to opposing running backs. Theo Riddick's role will be scaled back.

    Toby Gerhart (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Gerhart suggests he still may play Week 7 against the Browns. Don't look for the Jaguars to push Gerhart out there at less than 100 percent when he's merely a marginal talent when fully healthy. It could be the Storm Johnson show again versus Cleveland. Neither back would be more than an RB3. Rotoworld.com

  • Lions not planning increased Pettigrew looks
    The Lions have no plans to increase Brandon Pettigrew's role as a pass catcher.

    Advice: Pettigrew averaged 100 targets from 2010-13, but has drawn just eight looks through six games. That, of course, is how the Lions drew up it when they spent their first-round pick on Eric Ebron and brought back Pettigrew to block. Neither Ebron nor Joseph Fauria has made much of an impact as a receiver, but Pettigrew was always amongst the league's least efficient players as a pass catcher. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Griffin III could return in Week 8
    CSN Washington suggests it's possible Robert Griffin III (ankle) could return for the Redskins' Week 8 game against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Griffin has been cleared for individual drills, and coach Jay Gruden said he could get in some practice reps next week. The Redskins want to get him a full week of practice before playing in a game, so Week 8 would be his earliest return. Griffin's timetable remains a fluid situation, but there's now at least a chance that he'll be back before Washington's Week 10 bye. Rotoworld.com

  • Julio Jones have soreness in left foot
    Julio Jones was spotted "slowly dragging his left foot" as he left the locker room Monday afternoon.

    Advice: Thankfully, this is not the foot that Jones has had two surgeries on since 2011. It stems from a tweak sustained during the Week 4 loss at Minnesota and he's displayed his usual speed/explosion since then. Jones will likely be limited in practice this week before suiting up as a top-five option at Baltimore Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Redskins don't know when RG3 will return
    The Redskins "still aren't sure" when Robert Griffin III will return from his dislocated ankle.

    Advice: It isn't as if the Skins have a timetable but aren't revealing it. They genuinely don't know when RG3 will be back. "As far as taking practice reps, that will be at least another week," coach Jay Gruden said Monday. "[Wednesday] will be the first step and next week maybe we'll try to get him in practice situations and see where he is." Griffin will perform some individual drills this week. He won't begin team reps until before Week 8 at the soonest. Rotoworld.com

    Chris Johnson played 21 of the Jets' 63 offensive snaps in Week 6.

    Advice: That's 33.3 percent. Slowly but surely, CJdoneK is being phased out of the Jets' offense. His carry totals with New York, in chronological order from Weeks 1-6, are 13, 12, 10, 6, 7, and 3. Johnson is Pro Football Focus' No. 52-graded runner out of 56 qualifiers.

  • Eagles not yet ruling Sproles out for Week 8
    Speaking Monday, Eagles coach Chip Kelly refused to rule Darren Sproles (sprained MCL) out for Week 8.

    Advice: Kelly believes Sproles could be sidelined only "a week or two." The Eagles are on bye in Week 7. Per Kelly, the team isn't planning to make a roster move at running back, an indication they truly believe Sproles' injury is minor. At the latest, Sproles' status will be updated early next week. Despite Kelly's optimism, Sproles is probably going to miss at least one game. Rotoworld.com

He's going to get beat back into the lineup by Jonathan Stewart (knee), who is expected to practice Wednesday and has an excellent chance to start against the Packers in Week 7. Williams, who will just be a low-upside committee back even once he gets healthy, is a RB4/5 kind of hold. Rotoworld.com

  • Sproles expected to miss at least one game
    Darren Sproles has been diagnosed with a slight MCL tear in his left knee and is expected to miss at least one game.

    Advice: Sproles' official timetable is 2-3 weeks. The Eagles are on a bye in Week 7, face the Cardinals in Week 8 and then the Texans in Week 9. At 5-1, the Eagles won't rush their valuable punt returner and change-of-pace back. Owners in need of wins can move on from Sproles and not lose much -- he was only averaging 5.5 touches per game on offense anyway over the last four weeks. Rotoworld.com

    CSN Philadelphia is hearing that Darren Sproles (knee) will probably be out a few weeks.

    Advice: Beat writer Geoff Mosher reports Sproles did not suffer an ACL tear when his left knee awkwardly twisted Sunday night. It sounds like some kind of sprain, possibly to his MCL. We'd consider Sproles doubtful for Week 8 when the Eagles come out of their bye. Rotoworld.com

  • Darren Sproles headed for MRI on left knee
    Darren Sproles will have a Monday MRI on his twisted left knee.

    Advice: Following Sunday night's win, Darren Sproles (knee) told Chip Kelly he was OK. That likely means that Sproles believes he has avoided a ligament tear, but it doesn't mean he's avoided an injury altogether. The MRI will determine if any of his ligaments were sprained and to what degree. With Chris Polk (hamstring) also sidelined right now, the Eagles may be in the market for a backup runner during their Week 7 bye. Rotoworld.com
