  • Austin Pettis was late for a team activity
    Austin Pettis was late for a Rams team activity over the weekend.

    Advice: Pettis and practice squad WR Emory Blake were both late, and both have since been cut. But that was likely just the straw that broke the camel's back on Pettis. The former third-round pick had already agreed to a paycut and somehow averaged just 9.66 yards per reception in his NFL career. Stedman Bailey and Chris Givens are better prospects. Rotoworld.com

  • Calvin Johnson has resumed running
    Calvin Johnson (ankle) has resumed running.

    Advice: Johnson is in London with his teammates as they get ready for a game against the 2-5 Falcons. We're expecting him to sit that one out and then take the Week 9 bye to get truly back to 100 percent. Megatron's ability to get some running in on his severe sprain is great news for his outlook upon return -- he's an excellent buy if anyone is selling. Rotoworld.com

  • Whaley thought Brown had star potential
    Bills GM Doug Whaley traded for Bryce Brown because he felt the former Eagle had the potential to be a star.

    Advice: Whaley gave up a fourth-round pick to get Brown this summer, relatively steep compensation by NFL standards. Note that Brown was the unquestioned No. 1 high school player in the country coming out, getting compared to Reggie Bush by Lane Kiffin. He has 4.48 speed at 6'0/220 and is excellent in the pass game. As the Buffalo News speculates, Brown will at worst be a "co-feature back" with Anthony Dixon while Fred Jackson (groin) is out. He's a plug-n-play RB2 with potential to stick in the C.J. Spiller role even once F-Jax returns. Rotoworld.com

    Coach Mike Pettine said Brian Hoyer is "still firmly our starter."

    Advice: Hoyer laid an egg in a loss to the previously winless Jaguars in Week 7, looking uncomfortable in the pocket and displaying concerning inaccuracy. But he earned enough leash early in the year to get another start, this time against the 0-6 Raiders. If Hoyer loses that game, the calls for Johnny Manziel will become deafening. Rotoworld.com

    Mike Glennon is expected to start Sunday's game against the Vikings.

    Advice: Josh McCown (thumb) has resumed practicing, but Glennon has outperformed the veteran badly this season. Over the last three games, Glennon has gone 1-2 with two 300-yard games and a 6:3 TD-to-INT ration. He'll be a two-QB league option against a very burnable Vikings secondary this week. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Pierre Thomas (shoulder) out 2-3 wks
    According to NFL Network, Pierre Thomas (shoulder) will miss 2-3 weeks.

    Advice: Thomas, currently third on the Saints in both catches and rush attempts, sustained the injury during Sunday's narrow loss at Detroit. 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

    Lance Moore caught two passes for 12 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Texans.

    Advice: Moore saw just the two targets. His score came on a fake WR sweep-turned-reverse to Antonio Brown where Brown hit Moore in stride for the three-yard touchdown. Moore has touchdowns in back-to-back games, but isn't a fantasy option as the Steelers' No. 3 or 4 receiver. He's merely a role player. Rotoworld.com

    Martavis Bryant caught a 35-yard touchdown in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Texans on Monday night.

    Advice: Making his NFL debut, the fourth-round pick out of Clemson drew five targets -- good for third on the team behind Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell -- and roasted CB Andre Hal on an in-and-out double-move up the right side for the touchdown. Ben Roethlisberger tried to hit Bryant deep a couple other times with no success. Still, Bryant played a healthy amount of snaps and could be making a move on Markus Wheaton for No. 2 duties.

    Advice: Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins each saw a team-high nine targets. There was nothing special about Johnson's night. His biggest play was a 24-yard grab on a deep in route in front of the safeties. Johnson has just one touchdown on the season. He could have had another on Monday if Ryan Fitzpatrick would have hit him in stride on a corner route in the end zone. But Fitzpatrick overshot Johnson, who had a step on the defensive back. Johnson remains a WR2 thanks to volume. He and the Texans travel to Tennessee in Week 8. Rotoworld.com

Hopkins' biggest play of the night was a 32-yard catch in the fourth quarter, but he ended up losing a fumble on the play, crushing the Texans' hopes of a comeback. Hopkins is more of a boom-or-bust WR3 than WR2. He'll have a plus matchup on the road against the Titans in Week 8. Rotoworld.com

Foster is an every-down back, leaving just a handful of touches for Blue weekly, but Blue is one of the top handcuffs to own thanks to Foster's recent injury history. Rotoworld.com

    Ben Roethlisberger completed 23-of-33 passes for 265 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Texans on Monday night.

    Advice: Roethlisberger absorbed three sacks and lost his right tackle and left tackle for stretches in this one. The offense got off to a really slow start, being held scoreless until there was 3:08 left in the first half. That's when Big Ben hooked up with rookie WR Martavis Bryant for a 35-yard touchdown over the top of the defense. The flood gates opened for Pittsburgh. Antonio Brown found Lance Moore for a three-yard touchdown 1:41 later, and Ben then found Le'Veon Bell for a two-yard score just 49 seconds after that. Roethlisberger hooked up with Brown nine times for 90 yards and had a 16-yard score called back when Brown couldn't get a second foot in bounds. Ben will be a mid-range QB2 vs. the Colts next week.

The Steelers have understandably soured on Justin Brown, and will move forward with Lance Moore in three-receiver sets along with Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton.

  • F-Jax on Bryce Brown: He's an every-down back
    When asked about Bryce Brown, Fred Jackson said he's "an every-down back."

    Advice: "We won't miss a beat," Jackson said. Although Anthony Dixon is under the impression he'll be a workhorse now, he's more likely to stick in a big back and special teams role while serving as the complement. Brown struggled with fumbles and bouncing too many runs outside as an Eagle, but is excellent in the pass game and has serious juice in his legs. On 190 career NFL carries, he's produced 878 yards (4.62 YPC) and six touchdowns. With C.J. Spiller out for the season and F-Jax sidelined as much as a month, Brown is a plug-n-play RB2.

  • 'No guarantee' Bryce Brown will play in 2014
    According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, "there's no guarantee" Bryce Brown will play at all for the Bills this season.

    Advice: Brown doesn't play special teams, so he's technically Buffalo's No. 4 running back behind Fred Jackson, C.J. Spiller, and Anthony Dixon. The Bills traded a fourth-round pick to acquire Brown this offseason. It's fair to wonder if they're regretting that decision now. Brown remains a hold in Dynasty leagues, but he's barely worth a roster spot in 14- and 16-team re-draft formats. He needs F-Jax or Spiller to suffer an injury to get active. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: It was a standard day for Brown against Joe Haden and the Browns, only this time, it came in a loss. The 5/50 effort was Brown's 22nd straight. The elite WR1 should have little trouble making it 23 against the Texans in Week 7. Rotoworld.com

  • Ben Roethlisberger manages only 228 yards
    Ben Roethlisberger completed 21-of-42 passes for 228 yards, one touchdown and an interception in Pittsburgh's 31-10, Week 6 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: Big Ben and the Steelers could never get in rhythm, and in continuing a running theme, got less efficient the closer they got to the end zone. Roethlisberger has now been held to just one touchdown in back-to-back games, but the pick was his first since Week 2. The ball got batted at the line of scrimmage. Roethlisberger will take an 8:3 TD:INT ratio into next week's game against the Texans. He'll be a low-end QB1 against a defense that just got dominated by Andrew Luck. Rotoworld.com

  • Glennon throws for 314 yards, 2 TDs in loss
    Mike Glennon completed 24-of-44 passes for 314 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Bucs' 48-17, Week 6 blowout loss the Ravens.

    Advice: Glennon was sacked five times and hit another handful of times as the Tampa line proved once again it can't block anyone. The offense couldn't get anything going until the scoreboard read 38-0 early in the second quarter. With the Ravens playing soft defense after the break, Glennon and the Bucs padded their stats. Glennon's two scores went to Mike Evans and Louis Murphy. The Bucs head into their bye week before hosting the Vikings in Week 8. It's unclear if Glennon or Josh McCown (thumb) will get that start.
