  • Junior Hemingway questionable for Week 8
    Junior Hemingway (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 8.

    Advice: Hemingway practiced on a limited basis after suffering a hamstring injury last week. He's expected to be a game-time decision. With Donnie Avery sidelined, Hemingway would play in four-wide sets. Rotoworld.com

  • Browns feeling pressure to start Manziel
    ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi reports that internal pressure to play Johnny Manziel has "turned up considerably."

    Advice: Brian Hoyer is coming off a highly-unproductive loss to the Jaguars, leading the Browns to briefly consider going to Manziel in the second half. Hoyer has been mostly solid managing Kyle Shanahan's offense prior to last week, but his leash on the starting job is now in question. It could be only a matter of time before the Browns turn to Manziel. Hoyer is in danger of getting benched if he can't move the offense against the winless Raiders. Rotoworld.com

  • Marquess Wilson eligible to return Week 10
    Bears WR Marquess Wilson (broken collarbone) is eligible to return from the injured reserve-designated for return list in Week 10.

    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

    Advice: The Steelers are averaging 17.5 yards per return, and rank next-to-last in starting field position. Archer has been a disappointment on special teams this season, with his longest return just 23 yards.

  • 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

    Advice: Greene was parked in a handicap parking space in Franklin, Tennessee on Friday evening. When a parking enforcement officer tried to issue Greene a ticket, he got into his car, maneuvered around the officer's vehicle and left the scene. Greene was charged with a handicap parking violation, driving on a revoked/suspended license, reckless driving and resisting stop/halt/frisk. Green turned himself in Friday night after learning there was a warrant out for his arrest, and was released after posting a $2,000 bond. His status for Sunday's game against the Texans is unknown.

  • Jonas Gray the Patriots top big back
    ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss confirms Jonas Gray now projects as the Patriots top "big back."

    Advice: Gray is ahead of both Brandon Bolden and James White. The 2012 UDFA out of Notre Dame was expected to have a bigger role than the three carries he got in Week 7, but the Patriots got absolutely dominated in time of possession and didn't want to challenge the Jets' elite run defense. In different game-flow situations, Gray could have a real role. He's worth adding in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com

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

  • Palmer throws two more TD passes in victory
    Carson Palmer completed 22-of-31 passes for 253 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Cardinals' Week 7 win over the Raiders.

    Advice: He was only sacked once, although Oakland did get pressure on Palmer, particularly in the second half. Palmer put the Cardinals ahead with a two-yard touchdown pass to Stepfan Taylor and a 33-yard score to Michael Floyd in the first half. He was picked in the second quarter by Charles Woodson on a slightly off-target pass that was deflected by TE John Carlson. Cards coach Bruce Arians reportedly emphasized increased balance on offense during the practice week, so Taylor handled more work than usual and Arizona finished with 31 pass attempts compared to 37 runs, one week after Palmer fired off an untenable 44 throws. The good news is Palmer continues to look healthy and has playmaking weapons. He gets another favorable matchup when Arizona takes on Philadelphia in Week 8. Rotoworld.com

    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.

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
