  • Report: Teams calling about Nate Washington
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports teams have been calling the Titans about Nate Washington's availability.

    Advice: This unofficially translates to, "We, the Titans, would love to trade Nate Washington." Already demoted in favor of Justin Hunter, Washington is just taking up roster and cap space on Tennessee's 53, and could probably be had for a conditional seventh-round pick. Unfortunately for the Titans, Washington has a guaranteed $4.8 million base salary and isn't worth half that much. They'd be lucky to get a bag of punctured footballs for him. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: "Zac [Stacy] could get 25 carries this week," Fisher continued. "We had some things in early this week. It was working so we decided to stay with [Tre Mason]. It’s nothing that Zac has done or hasn’t done." Fisher clearly hates fantasy football. He's also never been a coach who favors a committee approach in the backfield. Most weeks, it's going to either be Mason or Stacy. And beat writer Nick Wagoner expects Mason to get the first look Week 8 against the Chiefs. Rotoworld.com

  • Defenses pressing Keenan Allen more in '14
    The Chargers say defenses are using more press-coverage against Keenan Allen in 2014, leading to his disappointing start to the season.

    Advice: "People, they aren't stupid," WRs coach Fred Graves said. "They're not just going to let him run free. They're going to take some things away." Allen has a team-high 34 catches, but has turned them into just 354 scoreless yards. His YAC per reception is down from 6.0 to 2.9 this season. Defenses are slapping a cornerback on Allen and rolling safeties to his side, leaving Philip Rivers to spread the ball around. Allen is a WR3/4 for Thursday night in Denver. Rotoworld.com

But I feel great," Lattimore said. "It's been a long road." Once Lattimore steps on the practice field, it will start a 21-day clock for him to either be activated or shut down for the remainder of the season. He's determined to play in 2014, but it remains to be seen if it'll happen. Lattimore says he feels better than ever. He'll turn 23 next Wednesday.

    Advice: After initially fearing a torn ACL, Sproles says he "felt pretty good" at Tuesday's practice. An MRI last week revealed no structural damage and just a mildly sprained MCL.

Lynch ended up rushing for 53 yards on 18 carries against the Rams. But he had a 15-yard touchdown and 18-yard run called back on penalties.

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.

    Arian Foster rushed for 102 yards on 20 carries in the Texans' 30-23, Week 7 loss to the Steelers on Monday night, adding four catches for 13 yards and one touchdown.

    Advice: Foster got off to a blazing start, rushing for 59 yards on the Texans' 94-yard opening touchdown drive, but was vultured by Alfred Blue for the 11-yard touchdown catch to cap it off. The wheels then fell off the Texans later in the half, and they never recovered. Foster was part of the problem, as he lost a fumble at his own three-yard line, setting up Le'Veon Bell's easy TD. Foster gave fantasy owners a scare on the third series of the game when he appeared to twist his knee while getting bent backward on a tackle. He shook it off and remained in the game. His score came from one yard out late in the fourth quarter. A locked-in RB1 any week he plays, Foster gets a date with the Titans in Week 8. Rotoworld.com

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.

It confirms that the Chiefs did not come out of the bye with an emphasis on featuring Kelce more, as he had zero first-half targets and finished with just 4-33-0. Owners need to stop banging their heads against a brick wall and expecting Andy Reid to unleash Kelce fully -- it's clear that's not in the immediate plans, especially after an excellent road win.

    Travis Kelce caught 4-of-4 targets for 33 yards in Kansas City's Week 7 win over the Chargers.

    Advice: Kelce had a fifth grab wiped out by an offensive pass interference call on Anthony Fasano. Kelce ripped off back-to-back gains of 16 and eight yards on the Chiefs' game-winning drive, but was bafflingly limited to just two targets beforehand. It was confounding usage from coach Andy Reid, who watched Junior Hemingway and Dwayne Bowe commit brutal drops, and A.J. Jenkins display stunningly-little awareness. Kelce is the Chiefs' most-effective pass catcher not named Jamaal Charles, but until Reid starts utilizing him as such, he'll remain a boom-or-bust TE1. Rotoworld.com

It's worth noting that one of his missed targets came in the painted area, but it wasn't a performance that will have Allen's owners feeling warm and fuzzy moving forward.

    Advice: Atlanta entered the week having surrendered the fewest fantasy points in the league to tight ends. Daniels got on the Falcons quick, however, tallying a five-yard TD in the first quarter and getting all of his production in the first half. In the old Dennis Pitta role, Daniels offers minimal week-to-week upside but is very much involved under tight end-friendly OC Gary Kubiak.

  • Khiry only gets three touches in Saints' loss
    Khiry Robinson rushed three times for 26 yards against the Lions' Week 7.

    Advice: Robinson lost a fumble early in the second quarter, and did not get another touch until the fourth. With Mark Ingram back, Robinson has been relegated back to the four-to-eight touch zone he occupied before Ingram's injury. He is a hold in all formats, but is not startable as long as Ingram is healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Clay goes 4-58-1 in win over Bears
    Charles Clay caught four passes for 58 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bears.

    Advice: It was easily Clay's best game of the season. He was targeted five times and scored his first touchdown of the year, beating SLB Shea McClellin, who fell down in coverage, for the 13-yard score in the first quarter. Clay has a decent matchup with the Jaguars next week, but he's still more of a middling TE2. Rotoworld.com

  • Reggie Bush totals 32 totals yards against NO
    Reggie Bush rushed four times for 10 yards and added five catches for 22 yards against the Saints Week 7.

    Advice: Bush seemed to be hobbled by his ankle injury at various times in the game, and was out-snapped heavily by Joique Bell in the second half. Despite being limited, Bush drew a crucial pass interference penalty on fourth-down on the Lions' final drive. Matthew Stafford hit Corey Fuller for the game-winning touchdown three plays later. Bush has another week to get fully healthy, and should be great PPR play against the Falcons horrible defense in London next week. 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. Mason needs to be owned in all formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Bengals humiliated, Bernard totals 16 yards
    Giovani Bernard rushed seven times for 17 yards and caught two passes for negative-one yards in Sunday's 27-0 Week 7 loss at Indy.

    Advice: The Bengals offense was an absolute train wreck from the opening whistle. They started the game with eight straight 3-and-outs, posted 27 total yards in the first half and Kevin Huber finished with 11 punts. There was just no shot for Bernard, who took two big hits on short passes but didn't suffer any serious injuries, to get anything going. Getting A.J. Green (toe) back for next week's game against the Ravens would be a boost to the entire offense. Rotoworld.com

Thomas walked to the locker room under his own power. Travaris Cadet will get more passing-down work with Thomas sidelined. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: "They are getting a ton of calls on him," Rapoport said. "With just one win, I'm told they are open to anything even though they love him as a player." Jackson has a $10 million non-guaranteed base salary, and a $9.8 million non-guaranteed base salary in 2015. If the Buccaneers traded away Jackson, they could move forward with Mike Evans as Mike Glennon's No. 1 receiver. V-Jax turns 32 in January. We suspect he could be had for a third-round pick.

    Advice: The team was informed of the Harvin trade before boarding a bus to the airport for Sunday's game at Saint Louis. Lynch reportedly "went off" before almost not boarding the bus. Lynch, Cliff Avril and Bruce Irvin also voiced displeasure about the move on Twitter. The Seahawks hoped shifting Harvin would remedy issues that had been developing in the locker room, but it appears the trade may have initially done more harm than good. Lynch is still likely to play against the Rams this weekend. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Bevell inexcusably forgot about Lynch in the loss to the Cowboys, giving him just 10 carries (which went for 61 yards). It's not the first time this season either, as Lynch is on pace for just 252 carries after going over 300 in each of the last two seasons. But Bevell appears to see the error of his ways now. "The fantasy owners … I'm not a fantasy owner," he said. "I don't care about anyone's (fantasy) points. But I do care about us winning the game. And Marshawn is a huge key for us winning the game."

    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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • RG3 ticketed for individual drills next week
    Redskins coach Jay Gruden expects Robert Griffin III (ankle) to resume individual drills next week.

    Advice: Gruden even left open the possibility that RGIII could get a few team reps. With Kirk Cousins playing extremely up-and-down football in RGIII's absence, the Redskins aren't going to stagger his return. The absolute earliest Griffin is likely to come back is Week 9, but he'll probably remain sidelined through Washington's Week 10 bye. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Bush's absence was precautionary
    Profootballtalk reports Reggie Bush (ankle) was held out of Sunday's win "largely as a precaution," and that he "could have played if necessary."

    Advice: The report jibes with Bush's Sunday insistence that he'll "100 percent" be back for Week 7. His status will be updated when the Lions return to practice on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • 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

  • Report: Sproles is probably out a few weeks
    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
