  • Derrick Coleman hurts foot in pregame
    Seahawks FB Derrick Coleman broke his foot during pre-game warmups for Sunday's Week 7 loss at St. Louis.

    Advice: Coleman somehow took a wrong step while warming up and suffered the fracture. The Seahawks were forced to use Robert Turbin as their fullback. Rotoworld.com

    Calvin Johnson (ankle) will travel with the Lions to London.

    Advice: This doesn't shed any light on Johnson's Week 8 status. He's still very, very questionable to play against the Falcons after not coming close to suiting up against the Saints. The Lions would do well to rest Megatron through the Week 9 bye and then unleash him. Rotoworld.com

  • Tre Mason leads STL RBs in snaps
    Tre Mason led Rams running backs by playing on 27-of-51 snaps in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

    Advice: Benny Cunningham played 19 snaps and Zac Stacy got one. It's clear that Mason has surged to the front of the pile here as the most talented natural runner and is a must-add, but there are major concerns -- most notably in the form of game flow. Mason is a zero in the pass game, which we know is a red flag when a team gets behind. See Andre Williams, Alfred Morris and even Marshawn Lynch for evidence of that. The Rams next five games are at KC, at SF, at ARZ, vs. DEN, at SD. Rotoworld.com

  • Paul Richardson third in snaps Sunday
    Paul Richardson played on a season-high 43-of-73 snaps in Sunday's loss at St. Louis.

    Advice: In terms of playing time, Richardson is the big winner of the Percy Harvin trade. The second-round rookie's previous high in snaps was 10. But in terms of targets, Richardson saw just five even though Russell Wilson attempted 36 passes. Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse, both playing more than 85 percent of the snaps, are far better re-draft bets. Rotoworld.com

  • Titans expect Jake Locker to return next week
    Coach Ken Whisenhunt said he "would expect" Jake Locker (thumb) to return Week 8.

    Advice: Locker practiced early last week, but his thumb became sore and the Titans were worried about mistakes with ball handling. So they went with Checkdown Charlie Whitehurst again, who predictably crippled the team in a narrow loss at Washington. Locker's return will be great news for Justin Hunter, whose vertical strengths need a big arm. Rotoworld.com

    Calvin Johnson (ankle) wasn't particularly close to playing in Sunday's win over the Saints.

    Advice: Johnson didn't practice at all last week and was only able to run at about 60 percent in pre-game drills before sitting out warmups. With the bye coming after the Week 8 game in London, it's looking like Megatron won't be back until Week 10. In the four games he's either been out or hobbled in this year, Golden Tate is averaging 8.0 catches, 112.0 yards and 0.5 touchdowns. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Dixon thinks he'll be a workhorse
    Anthony Dixon is under the impression he'll be the Bills' feature back going forward.

    Advice: Fred Jackson (groin) could miss a month and C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is out for the season. "This is an opportunity I've been waiting for, to get back in that workhorse role and show people what I can do," said Dixon, who went on to insist he's been mislabeled as a short-yardage back. The problem for Dixon is that the Bills traded for Bryce Brown this summer, a far more talented, versatile and explosive runner. We're expecting Brown to lead the committee, with "Boobie" filling a big back role. Rotoworld.com

  • Denard Robinson expected to keep starting job
    When asked if Denard Robinson will keep the feature back job, coach Gus Bradley said, "Yeah, I think so."

    Advice: Coaches are loathe to make depth chart declarations, especially right after games. But Bradley had to at least suggest he'd give it up for Shoelace after a 22-127-1 outing as the starter. When Toby Gerhart returns from his foot injury, he'll slide into a complementary role along with Storm Johnson. Gerhart has been a drop candidate in 10- and 12-team leagues for a few weeks now.

    Jimmy Graham played on 30-of-75 snaps in Sunday's loss at Detroit.

    Advice: Graham played enough snaps to be a factor, but he oddly wasn't really a part of the gameplan. He had zero catches on two targets and the Lions defenders said afterward they weren't worried about him. ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett says it's difficult to predict if Graham's role will increase going forward, as the tight end's ability to block and absorb contact are in doubt. Owners can just hang their hat on the fact that he didn't appear to suffer any setbacks Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Hyde didn't get his first carry until the third quarter. The 49ers were forced to abandon the run, with Hyde and Frank Gore combining for just 14 touches. Hyde played limited snaps and was mostly used in mop-up duty. The 49ers could look to get Hyde more involved in the second half of the season. Rotoworld.com

    Stevie Johnson caught five passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: Johnson played in the majority of three-wide sets with Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. He wasn't limited by the hip injury that cost him practice time this week. Johnson's touchdown came on a four-yard strike from Colin Kaepernick in the back of the end-zone. He doesn't have a major role in the 49ers' offense, but has been productive with three touchdowns in his last four games. Johnson remains just a WR5 for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Crabtree was shut down by Chris Harris for most of the game. He dropped two passes in first half, and had a touchdown called back in the fourth quarter. Crabtree doesn't have a 100-yard game this season, and will need to continue to get red-zone targets. He has a 32/322/3 line through seven weeks. Rotoworld.com

He was able to bounce back after being held to one catch last week, but has only four targets over the last two games. Welker will remain just a WR3 for Thursday night against the Chargers.

    Advice: Sanders scored his first touchdown of the season on the Broncos' opening possession. He also had a second touchdown called back, and drew a pass interference call in the end-zone. Sanders was quiet for the rest of the game with just three targets. He'll be a higher-end WR2 in Week 8 against the Chargers. Rotoworld.com

    Daniel Thomas rushed for 25 yards on seven carries and caught three passes for 25 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bears.

    Advice: Thomas operated as Lamar Miller's clear No. 2. He got a couple series to himself, at one point touching the ball on 5-of-7 plays on a second-quarter drive, but that was mostly it. With Knowshon Moreno (knee) done for the season, we'd expect Thomas to be Miller's backup for the duration of the season. Rotoworld.com

    Colin Kaepernick completed 24-of-39 passes for 263 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in Sunday night's Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: He added 18 yards on three carries. Kaepernick failed to lead the 49ers to a scoring drive in the second half. His lone touchdown came on a four-yard pass to Stevie Johnson in the back of the end-zone. The 49ers' offensive line struggled to pass protect all game, and Kaepernick was sacked six times. Kaepernick will be a borderline QB1 option in Week 9 when the 49ers come out of their bye. Rotoworld.com

    Anthony Dixon had 13 carries for 51 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Vikings.

    Advice: Dixon took over as the lead back after C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson left with injuries in the second quarter. He plodded his way to 3.9 yards per carry, but showed good power between the tackles. With Spiller and Jackson sidelined, Dixon will likely be used in the lesser half of a committee with Bryce Brown and could potentially see goal-line work. Brown is the preferred add in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Mason takes control of Rams backfield in win
    Tre Mason rushed for 85 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in the Rams' 28-26, Week 7 win over the Seahawks.

    Advice: After shining last Monday night on nine snaps, Mason was handed the reins against Seattle, out-touching Benny Cunningham 18-7, while Zac Stacy rode the bench, playing one snap and not registering a touch. It sure looks like a changing of the guard. After picking up 24 yards on his first NFL carry last week, Mason ripped off a 28-yarder Sunday. He found the end zone from six yards out in the first quarter. The Rams are going to ride the "hot hand," and Mason has it. Coach Jeff Fisher likes to ride one back.

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

    Advice: We've seen the Saints do this with Graham before, as recently as last season when he often played limited snaps while battling foot and elbow injuries. 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. It's just like all the other ones I've ever had," he said, reiterating his status as a true game-time call. "It's painful, but we'll see. Maybe in two days I'll feel better." Rotoworld.com

  • Tre Mason debuts, leads Rams RBs in rushing
    Making his NFL debut, Rams rookie RB Tre Mason rushed for 40 yards on five carries in St. Louis' Week 6 loss to San Francisco on Monday night, adding one catch for 12 yards.

    Advice: Mason had been a healthy scratch each of the first four games of the season. He entered the game in the first quarter, taking the place of Trey Watts as the No. 3 back behind Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham. Mason turned his first NFL touch into a 12-yard gain in the red zone. His first carry went for 27 yards and would have likely gone for a touchdown if Brian Quick hadn't gotten in the way downfield. Mason showed that it's clear he has the most talent as a runner in the Rams' backfield. Stacy and Cunningham are plodders in the Shonn Greene mold and haven't showed anything to keep Mason off the field. Mason is worth a look in 12- and 14-team leagues. This is the same time Stacy entered the fantasy picture last season. Rotoworld.com

  • Kaep totals 370 yds, 3 TDs in MNF comeback
    Colin Kaepernick completed 22-of-36 passes for 343 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the 49ers' 31-17, Week 6 win over the Rams on Monday night, adding 37 rushing yards on three carries.

    Advice: The 49ers struggled to get anything going much of the first half, but the wheels fell off the Rams defense after Kaepernick hooked up with Brandon Lloyd for an 80-yard touchdown behind Janoris Jenkins with 14 seconds left in the second quarter. It was mostly cake from there on out, as the 49ers moved the ball with ease. Kaep scrambled left in the third quarter and threw an off-balance 11-yard TD to Anquan Boldin before hooking up with Michael Crabtree later in the quarter for a 32-yard score. He should have had a fourth touchdown pass, but TEs Vance McDonald and Vernon Davis fought over a target in the end zone with no Rams around them, letting the ball fall to the turf. Kaepernick gets the Broncos on the road in Week 7. Rotoworld.com

  • Jake Locker remains starter when healthy
    Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday that Jake Locker (hand) remains the Titans' starting quarterback when healthy.

    Advice: Whisenhunt acknowledged he doesn't know whether Locker will play in Week 7 against the Redskins, however. Still nursing an injury to his thumb region, it sounds like Locker will end up coming down to a late-week or even a game-time decision. Locker was able to throw passes on Saturday. He showed up to the Titans' facility on Monday to do rehab. Rotoworld.com

  • Lions could rest Megatron through Week 9 bye
    Lions coach Jim Caldwell was coy on Calvin Johnson's (high-ankle sprain) status in Monday's presser, but did not rule out the idea of resting him through Detroit's Week 9 bye.

    Advice: "The fact of the matter is I leave it up to the doctors," Caldwell said. "Those are the professionals. They know exactly what it takes, what can be done." Coaches are typically more pessimistic about injuries than players, but Caldwell's words are an ominous sign for Johnson's Week 7 status. For now, owners need to plan on their WR1 missing another game. Megatron's status will be updated no later than Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Wes Welker held to one catch in New York
    Wes Welker caught his lone target for eight yards in Denver's Week 6 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Welker's grab came late in the fourth quarter as the Broncos were trying to drain the clock. The one-look day comes after Welker caught at least six passes on nine targets in each of his first two games of the season. He should bounce back as a WR3 in Week 7 against the 49ers. Rotoworld.com

  • Emmanuel Sanders finally has quiet afternoon
    Emmanuel Sanders caught 3-of-6 targets for 38 yards in Denver's Week 6 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Wes Welker wasn't Sanders' problem — Welker drew only one look — the Broncos just weren't in their normal rhythm on the road in New York. The quiet afternoon snaps Sanders' 7-100 streak at three. Although he has yet to find the end zone this season, Sanders should get back on track as a WR1/2 in Week 7 against the 49ers. Rotoworld.com

  • Calvin Johnson officailly inactive for Week 6
    Lions declared Calvin Johnson inactive for Week 6 against the Vikings.

    Advice: This was the best case scenario for his fantasy owners. Instead of lumbering through the rest of the season on a bum ankle, Johnson will not get the time to fully recover and come back 100 percent. Corey Fuller will start in his place for the Lions. Rotoworld.com

  • Lions list Megatron (ankle) doubtful to play
    The Detroit Free Press considers Calvin Johnson (ankle) "highly unlikely" to play in Week 6 at Minnesota.

    Advice: Megatron missed practice all week and is officially listed as doubtful to face the Vikings. The Lions figure to start Golden Tate and Corey Fuller at wide receiver, with Jeremy Ross and perhaps Ryan Broyles mixing in. Sitting down Johnson is in the best interests of both the Lions and fantasy owners alike. Rotoworld.com

  • Toby Gerhart has been injured since Week 1
    The foot injury Toby Gerhart aggravated in practice this week has plagued him since Week 1 against the Eagles.

    Advice: "It's something that's been dragging on since the horse collar at Philly," said Gerhart. There were whispers Gerhart suffered a high ankle sprain when he was horse collared on Opening Day. "Trying to push through it and starting to feel good and then have a play and it takes a step back." Rookie Storm Johnson will get his chance to run with the Jaguars' tailback job in Week 6.

  • Jake Locker listed as questionable
    Jake Locker (hand) is listed as questionable for Week 6 against the Jaguars after missing practice again on Friday.

    Advice: Beat writers foresee Charlie Whitehurst getting the start. If Whitehurst struggles and rookie Zach Mettenberger comes on, Locker might not make another start for the Titans. He is in a contract year and has consistently been unable to stay healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Storm Warning? Gerhart (foot) out for Week 6
    Toby Gerhart (foot) has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Titans.

    Advice: Gerhart sprained his foot last Sunday, got in a full practice Wednesday, but suffered a setback and will not play. Look for rookie Storm Johnson to handle the early-down work and possibly see 12-15 carries in what should be a competitive football game between two bad teams. Johnson is worth grabbing in 12-team leagues. He easily could take off with the lead-back job in Jacksonville. Rotoworld.com

  • Gerhart (foot) has setback, misses practice
    Toby Gerhart (foot) did not practice again on Friday.

    Advice: The Florida Times Union confirmed Gerhart suffered a setback in Wednesday's practice after he sprained his foot last Sunday against the Steelers. He's missed practice each of the past two days and is looking like a game-time decision at best for Week 6. The AP's Mark Long quipped there may be a "Storm warning" coming to Nashville. He's alluding to rookie Storm Johnson, who would likely assume early-down duties for the Jaguars against the Titans should Gerhart sit. Rotoworld.com

  • Toby Gerhart (foot) suffered setback on Wed.
    The Florida Times Union confirms Toby Gerhart (foot) suffered a setback in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Gerhart was downgraded from "full" on Wednesday to "DNP" on Thursday. We'll have to see how Friday's practice shakes out, but it looks like there's a chance Gerhart may miss Week 6. Storm Johnson is the favorite to lead the Jaguars in carries against the Titans. He'd be worth a look as a cheap FanDuel option. Rotoworld.com
