Player Notes

  • Cowboys list Tony Romo (back) as questionable
    Tony Romo (back) is listed as questionable for Week 9 versus Arizona.

    Advice: He missed a third straight practice on Friday. The fact that playcaller Scott Linehan sounded pessimistic about Romo's chances of playing after practice indicates Romo is on the doubtful side of his "Q" tag, but the Cowboys claim the decision will go down to game time. Regardless of which quarterback is under center, expect Dallas to lean heavily on its rushing attack against the Cards. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Mathews (MCL) practices, 'getting close'
    Ryan Mathews (MCL sprain) returned to a limited practice on Friday, and afterwards coach Mike McCoy announced Mathews is "getting close."

    Advice: Mathews has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Dolphins, but he should be back following San Diego's Week 10 bye. He should also be owned in all leagues as the favorite for early-down carries and goal-line work in one of the league's best offenses. We expect Branden Oliver to stay involved once Mathews returns, but likely only as a passing-down back. Mathews is San Diego's bellcow runner and offers stretch-run RB1/2 upside in non-PPR leagues.

  • Bengals express confidence in Jeremy Hill
    Bengals OC Hue Jackson expressed confidence Friday that Jeremy Hill will be a capable lead back in the absence of Gio Bernard (shoulder/hip).

    Advice: "I feel good that if it happened that way, that [Hill] would go in there and do the job," Jackson said. ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey expects Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead to also supply "production from the running back position" off the bench, although Hill has shown capable of being a true every-down back and is the heavy favorite for touches. Keep in mind the Jaguars have allowed just 3.44 YPC and one rushing score to opposing running backs over their last five games, and Cincinnati's struggling run-blocking unit will be without RG Kevin Zeitler (calf). Hill owners will be hanging their hats on anticipated volume and goal-line chances. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandin Cooks held to three catches in win
    Brandin Cooks caught 3-of-3 targets for 38 yards in the Saints' Week 9 win over the Panthers.

    Advice: It was a disappointing night coming off Cooks' 6/94/1 Week 8, especially since he seemed to be finding the soft spots in Carolina's secondary. Either way, Drew Brees was spreading the ball around, finding eight different receivers. Cooks has weekly blow-up potential, but his season-long upside seems capped by the Saints' spread-the-wealth passing attack. With half his rookie year now in the books, Cooks is on pace for 86/820/4 four as a receiver, and 136 additional yards as a rusher. He's a boom-or-bust WR3. Rotoworld.com
