  • Browns concerned about Ben Tate?
    ESPN Cleveland believes that OC Kyle Shanahan has concerns about Ben Tate as the Browns' feature back.

    Advice: Tate has started or led the backfield in touches in every game he's been healthy, but Shanahan's comments about wanting "one of the backs to separate" suggests the Browns aren't sold on him carrying the load. There could be a changing of the guard if Tate continues to struggle and one of Isaiah Crowell or Terrance West emerges with a hot-hand. Tate has a 2.8 YPC over the last two games. Crowell has been the most productive and could start to see his role increased. The Browns have the most invested in West as a third-round pick. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: After playing the Patriots on Sunday, the Bears have a bye in Week 9. Wilson will be eligible return in the following game. Chicago has been missing a third receiver from its 2014 offense with Santonio Holmes and Josh Morgan sharing the role. A 22-year-old with huge long-term upside, Wilson should be owned in all Dynasty leagues and is worth a look for 16-team re-draft leaguers as well. Rotoworld.com

  • Palmer will continue spreading ball around
    Carson Palmer said coach Bruce Arians' offense is designed to spread the ball around.

    Advice: "I've been in offenses where the majority of the plays are designed to go to one guy," Palmer said. "This system is not designed to go to the 'X' or the 'Z' or the 'Y.' It depends on the coverage." Palmer hit nine different pass catchers against Oakland last week, and connected with 11 and eight different receivers in his first two starts of the season. The emphasis on spreading the ball around has led to disappointing seasons for Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, who are both on pace to fall below their statistical output from last season. Unless something changes, Arizona's offensive philosophy makes Floyd nothing more than an upside WR2, while Fitzgerald is a WR3 moving forward. Rotoworld.com

The Jets will likely push Harvin downfield more, which should help his fantasy value in the long run.

He was picked in the second quarter by Charles Woodson on a slightly off-target pass that was deflected by TE John Carlson.

    Advice: RGIII got in three limited practices this week, and could be targeting a Week 8 return. Santana Moss is up at the expense of Robinson. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Percy gave Tate a black eye last year
    A source tells the Seattle Times that Percy Harvin got into an altercation with Golden Tate during Super Bowl week last season, resulting in a black eye for Tate.

    Advice: This confirms an initial report from The Sideline View's Lance Zierlein. A source also tells the Seattle Times that Harvin had an altercation with Doug Baldwin in August that resulted in Baldwin getting a cut on his chin. A final straw was reportedly Harvin balking about going back into last week's game against Dallas, possibly angry over not being used more early on. Zierlein was told "Harvin's anger issues are just too much to deal with and he could single handedly bring down team chemistry." Rotoworld.com

    Dez Bryant (shoulder) is probable for Week 7.

  • Seahawks had been shopping Harvin for weeks
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks had been shopping Percy Harvin for weeks.

    Advice: Multiple reports suggest Harvin's "anger management issues" led to his trade to the Jets. For the Seahawks, moving on from his contract gets them out of what's left on his $11 million base salary. Harvin has no guaranteed money beyond this year and would have been a release-candidate after the season regardless. It's still an admission of failure from Seattle after they gave up first- and seventh-round picks last year, and a 2014 third-rounder for Harvin. The Seahawks will save $6.47 million in cap space by trading him, which should help towards extending Russell Wilson. Rotoworld.com

  • Jets acquire Percy Harvin for mid-round pick
    FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports the Seahawks have traded Percy Harvin to the Jets for a conditional pick.

    Advice: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds that the compensation is expected to be a mid-round pick. The timing of the trade is surprising, as Harvin is currently dealing with a thigh injury and was listed as questionable this week. The moves leaves the Seahawks with just Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse as their top two receivers, while Jets GM John Idzik is using his Seattle ties in an attempt to upgrade Geno Smith's supporting cast. Harvin had just one game over 50 receiving yards this season and reportedly "wasn't viewed as a fit." With Harvin gone, rookie Paul Richardson is a candidate for an expanded role. Harvin is due a non-guaranteed $41.5 million over the next four seasons. Rotoworld.com

  • Carson Palmer (shoulder) probable for Week 7
    Carson Palmer (shoulder) is probable for Week 7 against the Raiders.

    Advice: Palmer was upgraded to full on Friday after being listed as limited throughout the week. He's good to go as a streaming option against a Raiders defense that's allowed five passing touchdowns over the last two games. Rotoworld.com

  • Seahawks list Harvin questionable vs. Rams
    Percy Harvin (thigh) is listed as questionable for Week 7 at St. Louis.

    Advice: Harvin was added to the injury report on Thursday when he missed practice with a thigh injury. His availability is now a question mark, though the Seahawks have not shown any outward worry that Harvin would miss the game. The Seahawks-Rams game has a 1PM ET start, so we will know Harvin's status before any games are played on Sunday. TE Luke Willson is also listed as questionable. Rotoworld.com

  • Patriots to 'keep going with' Jonas Gray
    Coach Bill Belichick said the Patriots will "keep going with" Jonas Gray and see how he seizes the opportunity.

    Advice: Gray is officially ahead of Brandon Bolden on the depth chart, as if Thursday night's usage didn't confirm it. It didn't mean a whole lot, as Gray saw just two touches compared to one for Bolden. But we'd expect Gray's role to grow as the "big back" complement to Shane Vereen, who handled 17 touches against the Jets. Gray may never be fantasy-useful, but he could see 8-10 weekly carries.

  • Cardinals looking to extend Palmer's contract
    The Arizona Republic reports the Cardinals have begun extension talks with contract-year QB Carson Palmer.

    Advice: Palmer's deal voids five days after the Super Bowl. Not many starting-caliber quarterbacks ever hit the free-agent market, so if there's mutual interest in an extension, which we'd assume there is, then it's likely the two sides will hammer something out. Palmer could likely command upward of $15 million annually on a short-term deal. Palmer has a 12-6 record across 18 starts for Arizona. Rotoworld.com

  • Jonas Gray rushes twice in Patriots debut
    Jonas Gray rushed twice for eight yards in New England's Week 7 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Promoted from the practice squad on Thursday, Gray was surprisingly active over James White. He was No. 2 on the depth chart behind Shane Vereen, but it obviously didn't mean much as he touched the ball only two times. Gray is just as likely to be inactive in Week 8 as he is to stay ahead of White and Brandon Bolden. He's not worth the hassle in re-draft leagues for the time being. Rotoworld.com

  • Percy Harvin (thigh) misses practice Thursday
    Percy Harvin (thigh) was held out of Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Harvin was also "DNP" on Wednesday, but it was designated "not injury related." Harvin missed last Thursday's practice with his thigh issue before ultimately being listed as "probable." There's no reason to expect any different this week. Harvin will be a boom-or-bust WR2 against the Rams. Rotoworld.com

    Carson Palmer (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Palmer has been "full go" in practice, but is still earning limited tags. Either way, he's going to play against Oakland, and be in the QB1 discussion against a defense getting pasted for a 70.2 completion percentage and 7.8 YPA. Rotoworld.com

  • Pats promote RB Jonas Gray to 53-man roster
    Patriots promoted RB Jonas Gray from the practice squad.

    Advice: OG Chris Barker has also been promoted. A third-year undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame, Gray will be No. 3 in the Patriots' "big back" rotation behind Brandon Bolden and James White, but it's not outside the realm of possibility that he'll get an opportunity to establish the "hot hand." He's worth a flier in 14-team leagues if you're absolutely bereft of options at running back. 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
