    Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Robinson said he has a "little boo-boo," but he's "straight." We'll see if he gets back to practice Thursday. If Robinson can't play, Mark Ingram would likely handle 15-18 carries as a solid RB2 against the Packers' No. 31 run defense. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Dixon expects RBBC w/ Bryce Brown
    Anthony Dixon said he expects to "kinda do it together, as a combination" with Bryce Brown in the Bills' backfield.

    Advice: Again, this isn't unexpected. The Bills are going to go into Week 8 against the Jets with an open mind. Dixon will likely get the start in the Fred Jackson role, with Brown coming in as the change-of-pace speed complement, a la C.J. Spiller. From there, the Bills may gradually work to a hot-hand approach. If it comes to that, we'd expect Brown to be the superior option based solely on talent. It may take a week or two for it to get sorted out, but Brown offers the highest upside. Rotoworld.com

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

  • Giants to use Randle in slot more rest of year
    Giants WRs coach Sean Ryan said the team plans to use Rueben Randle in the slot more over the final nine weeks of the season with Victor Cruz (knee) done for the year.

    Advice: "The other guy that can do certain things in the slot for us is Reuben because he's smart and he's a big target in the middle of the field," Ryan said. Randle is averaging nearly 10 targets per game the past five weeks, and is the No. 23 overall PPR-scoring wide receiver over the past six. Getting him in the slot is just another way to get the ball in his hands. At 6'3/210, he's a mismatch for smaller nickel corners. Randle has picked up his play and put himself into WR2 consideration. We're just waiting for that "boom" game. Rotoworld.com

"It was my goal going into the season because of injuries and not having an offseason to train for this season was to get better all season long."

  • 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. Just note that the Bills face the Jets' rugged run defense this week and then have a bye in Week 9.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

  • Charles Sims hoping to practice next week
    Bucs RB Charles Sims (ankle) has not resumed practicing yet.

    Advice: Sims, who is on IR with a designation to return, was eligible to resume practicing this week. He hopes he gets clearance to get some work in next week as the Bucs come out of their bye with an eye on Week 10 for his NFL debut. Bucs reporter Pat Yasinskas says the Bucs coaches "seemed infatuated with his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield" prior to the injury. With Doug Martin underperforming badly and Bobby Rainey a mediocre talent, Sims is at least worth putting on watch lists. Rotoworld.com

    Reggie Bush (ankle) returned to a full practice Friday and is listed as probable for Week 7 against the Saints.

    Advice: Bush is thankful the Lions made the decision to hold him out last week. "It helped a lot," Bush said Friday. "It helped me rest my ankle and prepare for this week. I think we made the smart decision by not playing last game and risking further injury and just given myself a week to get back healthy." Rotoworld.com

    Coach Jim Caldwell suggested it would take a "miracle" for Calvin Johnson (ankle) to play Week 7 against the Saints.

    Advice: In other words, Johnson isn't going to play Sunday. The Lions may also be without Eric Ebron, who is battling a hamstring injury. It'll be the Golden Tate and Reggie Bush/Joique Bell show. Megatron may be held out through the Week 9 bye. We'd consider him highly questionable for Week 8 against the Falcons. Rotoworld.com

  • Bryce Brown surprised he hasn't been playing
    Bryce Brown says he's surprised that he's been a weekly inactive.

    Advice: "I expected to play and I expected to play right away," Brown said. "Me not playing and inactive was a surprise." Brown rushed for 148 yards on 33 carries in the preseason, and turned nine catches into 73 yards. He hasn't played a single snap through the season's first six weeks after the Bills gave up a fourth-round pick for Brown in the offseason. His time may not come until 2015 when C.J. Spiller is eligible to hit free agency. Brown needs to be owned in all Dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com

    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

  • Payton won't say how carries will shake out
    When asked how running carries will be distributed Sunday, coach Sean Payton said, "we will kind of see how we handle that."

    Advice: Mark Ingram's return from a broken hand is obviously awful news for Khiry Robinson. Ingram was running at an elite level before his injury and it's not like he's coming off a knee or ankle issue. We expect him to hit the ground running as the primary big back, leaving Robinson for something like 6-8 touches against the Lions. Rotoworld.com

  • Gruden: RGIII will be the starter once cleared
    Coach Jay Gruden confirmed Robert Griffin III (ankle) will be the Redskins' starting quarterback once he's cleared and "ready physically and mentally."

    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. There remains a chance Griffin could be back before the Week 10 bye. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Bush missed Week 6 mostly as a "precaution." He's fully expected to play this week versus New Orleans.

    CSN Washington suggests it's possible Robert Griffin III (ankle) could return for the Redskins' Week 8 game against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Griffin has been cleared for individual drills, and coach Jay Gruden said he could get in some practice reps next week. The Redskins want to get him a full week of practice before playing in a game, so Week 8 would be his earliest return. Griffin's timetable remains a fluid situation, but there's now at least a chance that he'll be back before Washington's Week 10 bye. 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

    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

    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

With Victor Cruz out for the season, Randle has a promising going-forward outlook. He's locked in as the No. 1 receiver, with Odell Beckham replacing Cruz in two-wide sets.

Unfortunately, Daniels wasn't one of them. He'll be back on the TE1/2 borderline against the Falcons next week. Rotoworld.com
