  • Ex-Packers WR J'Mon Moore works out for SEA
    Free agent WR J'Mon Moore worked out for the Seahawks.

    Advice: We haven't heard much about the 2018 fourth-rounder since he was waived by the Packers in August. A big play/deep threat specialist, Moore would certainly fit into the Seahawks' offense, but he showed shockingly little during his 1.5 years in Green Bay. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:57 pm

  • Chris Thompson (toe) misses another practice
    Chris Thompson (toe) remained sidelined on Tuesday.

    Advice: All signs point toward Thompson missing another game. With Adrian Peterson battling elements of a high-ankle sprain, the hopeless Redskins could have to rely heavily on Wendell Smallwood vs. the Vikings on Thursday. For what it's worth, Peterson has insisted he will suit up against his former team. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:08 pm

  • Tim Patrick (hand) due back in Week 11
    Broncos WR Tim Patrick (broken hand, injured reserve) is expected to be activated following the team's Week 10 bye.

    Advice: Sidelined since Week 1, Patrick will miss his required eighth game in Week 9. The Broncos suddenly have a big need at receiver after trading Emmanuel Sanders. 25-year-old Patrick flashed a bit down the stretch last season. It's not entirely outside the realm of possibility he will have WR5 re-draft value following his return. He's not worth stashing, of course. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:01 pm

  • With DJ banged up, Cards sign Alfred Morris
    Cardinals signed RB Alfred Morris.

    Advice: We learned the hard way that David Johnson's injury issues were more serious than the Cardinals were letting on, while reserve D.J. Foster is also banged up. Morris spent training camp with the Cowboys but couldn't crack the squad. He worked out for the Cardinals in September. Morris' signing could be as much about Foster as Johnson, but it is obviously a worrying sign for Johnson's Week 8 availability vs. the Saints. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:36 pm

  • Peterson still claiming he'll play Thursday
    Speaking Tuesday, Adrian Peterson (ankle) said he still plans to suit up for Thursday's game against the Vikings.

    Advice: Peterson is reportedly battling a high-ankle sprain, but has claimed he is "feeling good." Even by 34-year-old Peterson's standards, playing four days after suffering a high-ankle issue would be superhuman. It would also be futile and pointless. Peterson would be guaranteed to struggle against the Vikings' elite defense. Wendell Smallwood is the next man up for the comically-undermanned, expansion-level Redskins. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:17 pm

  • Kerryon Johnson headed to IR; Could return
    Lions placed RB Kerryon Johnson on injured reserve with a knee injury.

    Advice: Johnson is undergoing surgery Tuesday, but coach Matt Patricia is optimistic he can return later this season. "I feel really bad for Kerryon that he's in this situation," Patricia said. "But very optimistic going forward." That's all good and well, but Johnson's fantasy season is functionally over. The earliest he could return is Week 16 against the Broncos. Sixth-round rookie Ty Johnson will move forward as the Lions' early-down back with J.D. McKissic changing the pace. McKissic already had a role even before Johnson's injury. With Tra Carson the only alternative on the 53-man roster, the Lions could be looking at promoting Paul Perkins from the practice squad or adding a veteran free agent. Johnson has now dealt with knee issues each of his first two years in the league. Limiting his workload will be a bigger theme for the Lions in 2020. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:07 pm

    Adam Thielen (hamstring) didn't practice Tuesday.

    Advice: Both Thielen and coach Mike Zimmer have expressed optimism that he will suit up for Thursday's game against the Redskins, but he didn't take the field for Tuesday's walk-through. Thielen is undoubtedly receiving round-the-clock therapy and rehab. It ultimately makes little sense for the Vikes to rush Thielen for a game where they are massive home favorites.

  • WR-desperate 49ers acquire Emmanuel Sanders
    49ers acquired WR Emmanuel Sanders from the Broncos in exchange for third- and fourth-round draft picks.

    Advice: The Broncos are also sending a fifth-round pick the 49ers' way. Truly receiver desperate, the 49ers haven't been able to settle on a receiver rotation all season. Although it's a role 32-year-old Sanders is probably miscast for at this point in his career, they now have their No. 1. Still providing WR3 relevance in Denver despite Joe Flacco's unsurprising awfulness, Sanders will have a chance to push for WR2 value in San Francisco, though the 49ers' offense will remain run heavy to the extreme. 2019 is the final year of Sanders' contract.

    Adam Thielen (hamstring) is optimistic he will be able to suit up against the Redskins on Thursday.

    Advice: He joins coach Mike Zimmer in saying he might play just four days after going down in Detroit. Thielen said he's gotten "quite a bit better." We are still skeptical he will play. The Vikings need Thielen healthy for the stretch run, and they won't need him to beat the pathetic Redskins on a short week at home. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:28 am

  • Thielen (hamstring) has 'a chance' to play
    Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Adam Thielen (hamstring) is "improving fast" and has "a chance" to play Thursday against Washington.

    Advice: Dreariness has turned into optimism overnight as Thielen suddenly sounds like he's headed for a true game-time call. There's always the chance he's "active" and not actually active from a participation standpoint against Washington, but fantasy players would likely be coaxed into starting him if he's officially in barring any reported limitations. There's low target floor potential for all involved given that Minnesota's run-first offense is laying -15.5 points at home. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:21 am

  • Jaylen Samuels (knee) returns to practice
    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Jaylen Samuels (knee) is back practicing "partially."

    Advice: It's only been two weeks since Samuels was initially diagnosed with a 4-6 week timetable following a knee scope, which is great news for his availability in the near future. Fourth-round RB Benny Snell has since worked as Conner's backup, most recently handling 17 carries for 75 yards and one score once Conner left Week 6 with a knee injury. Whomever wins the backup role with all three healthy has an obvious path to opportunity given the fact Conner's now dealt with two week-long injuries in only six games played.

  • Shepard confident he'll be back this season
    Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) has "no doubt" he'll play again this season.

    Advice: "Oh, I'll be back out on the field," Shepard told NorthJersey.com. "It's just whether it's gonna be this week or next week." Shepard insists he's been symptom-free for two weeks but remains in the league's concussion protocol and is uncertain for Sunday's game against Detroit. His return to practice as a non-contact participant was a step in the right direction but it's clear both he and the team are exercising the utmost caution following his second concussion in a four-week span. Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer will continue operating as New York's starting wideouts in the interim. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:08 am

  • Adrian Peterson's MRI shows high ankle sprain
    ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Adrian Peterson (ankle) has a grade 1 high-ankle sprain and grade 2 low-ankle sprain.

    Advice: Even so, Peterson claimed to be "good" for Thursday Night Football against his former Vikings squad. Washington's backfield remains in complete disarray during this short turnaround as Derrius Guice (knee) isn't eligible to return from the team's PUP list until after their Week 10 bye (assuming he's activated two weeks ahead of time) and Chris Thompson is currently battling turf toe. At this rate, Wendell Smallwood would make for a desperation RB4/FLEX as the only available option aside from Peterson if the veteran's limited. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:53 am

  • Bryce Love expected to undergo second surgery
    NBC Sports' JP Finlay reports Redskins fourth-round RB Bryce Love (ACL) is expected to undergo another surgery on his previously injured right knee on Tuesday.

    Advice: This season was always expected to be a redshirt year for Love after the All-American Stanford product labored through an injury-plagued senior campaign that ended with a torn ACL. Redskins interim coach Bill Callahan has been non-committal on Love's progress, stating he'll "just see where he’s at" following the rookie's rehabilitation process. As it stands, Derrius Guice is on injured reserve but on track to return after Washington's Week 10 bye, Adrian Peterson's (ankle) status is unknown following an undisclosed MRI and Chris Thompson is dealing with turf toe.

  • Pats acquire Mohamed Sanu for 2nd-round pick
    Patriots acquired WR Mohamed Sanu from the Falcons in exchange for a 2020 second-round pick.

    Advice: New England reportedly offered a second-round pick for Sanu before the draft and the Falcons turned them down. Now 1-6 and projected to be $8.7 million over the 2020 salary cap, Atlanta had no choice but to begin shedding weight. Sanu's departure is the first domino to fall and clears around $3.7 million from Atlanta's books this year (and $10.2 million in all). The versatile slot wideout is expected to be active against Cleveland in Week 8 but likely won't be fully integrated into New England's offense until their Week 10 bye. Expect more roster news to follow as this acquisition puts the Patriots $1.2 million over the cap this season. Russell Gage will take over for Sanu in Atlanta moving forward, while either Phillip Dorsett or Josh Gordon (pending the severity of his ankle injury) are now on the outside looking in with the Patriots.

  • Ben Watson sees five targets in 2019 debut
    Ben Watson caught 3-of-5 targets for 18 yards in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Making his season debut after serving a suspension, getting cut, and then being re-signed, Watson had his first target clang off his face-mask and fall incomplete. All five of his targets came in the first half. Watson may score a touchdown here or there, but he's well off the fantasy radar for now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:04 pm

  • Schefter: Kerryon Johnson to miss 'some time'
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Kerryon Johnson (knee) is considered week to week and is expected to miss "some time."

    Advice: We still have very little clarity on what's going on with Johnson, but it sounds like he's going to miss at least Week 8 at the minimum against the Giants. Ty Johnson is expected to slide into Kerryon's role on early downs, making him arguably the top waiver add of the week, while J.D. McKissic remains the Lions' pass-down back.

    Advice: The Redskins didn't actually practice Monday, but are required to submit an estimated injury report. Thompson is dealing with turf toe. It'd be surprising if he suits up Thursday night against the Vikings. Wendell Smallwood posted 5-23-0 rushing and 1-18-0 receiving lines in Week 7 with Thompson sidelined. Neither backup RB is a realistic fantasy option in this impossible road spot as long as Adrian Peterson (ankle) continues to command 20-plus touches a game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:11 pm

    Adrian Peterson (ankle) was listed as a DNP for Monday's practice.

    Advice: The Redskins didn't actually practice Monday, but are required to submit an estimated injury report. Peterson reportedly had an MRI done Monday on his ankle and is awaiting the results. He's racked up 20-plus carries in back-to-back weeks as the focal point of the new-look Redskins offense that has scored 17 points in eight quarters under interim head coach Bill Callahan. Peterson holds some RB3 value based on volume alone, but is in about the worst spot imaginable this week at less than 100 percent against the Vikings' fearsome front seven.

    Advice: The Vikings didn't actually practice Monday, but are required to submit an estimated injury report. Thielen is reportedly aiming to return in Week 9 against the Chiefs. The Vikings will roll with Stefon Diggs and Olabisi Johnson in 2-WR sets during his absence. It wouldn't be surprising to see athletically-gifted rookie TE Irv Smith get more reps as a true pass catcher as well. Still, there's a low target floor for everyone involved in the Vikings' run-first offense in this blowout spot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:38 pm

    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Adam Thielen (hamstring) is targeting a Week 9 return.

    Advice: Thielen is reportedly aiming to return in Week 9 against the Chiefs. Ian Rapoport has also reported that it's unlikely the Vikings' stud WR suits up for the team's Thursday night matchup against the Redskins. Olabisi Johnson will start in Thielen's place if he's ultimately sidelined. Johnson caught 4-of-8 targets for 40 yards and a touchdown against the Lions. He's in play as a solid streaming option, although it'd be far from shocking if the Vikings run the ball as much as possible as 16-point home favorites. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:44 am

    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Adam Thielen (hamstring) is 'unlikely' to play Thursday against Washington.

    Advice: Thielen personally is "optimistic" he'll continue his consecutive 87-game playing streak on Thursday, but all signs point to rookie Olabisi Johnson starting in his place. Even so, Pelissero adds there's "optimism he won't miss much time."

  • 'Real possibility' Thielen misses Week 8
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it's "hard to imagine" Adam Thielen (hamstring) playing against the Redskins in Week 8.

    Advice: Thielen's hamstring injury doesn't appear to be a major setback, though he won't have much time to recover with Minnesota back to work Thursday night against the Redskins. The short turnaround obviously works against Thielen and the Vikings probably won't need him playing at home against a lesser opponent. Perhaps Thielen will receive good news from Monday's MRI but Rapoport still believes there's a "real possibility" he sits this one out. If he does, it would be his first career absence.

    Advice: Sanu's second quarter reception was his lone target on an afternoon where the Falcons' offense bottomed out. That included a fourth quarter Matt Ryan injury.

The Vikings have a short turnaround to get prepped for Thursday Night Football, so it's truly a question mark whether Thielen will be ready nearly 96 hours later after being unable to return with his nagging soft tissue injury from the first quarter on.

    Advice: The Redskins remained run-heavy under Bill Callahan, but they had just one red-zone trip and failed to score any points. Peterson got off to a great start with seven straight carries to open the game but faded in the second half with the Redskins playing from behind. He had costly fumble with the Redskins driving late in the third quarter. Peterson has been the focal point of the Redskins' post-Jay Gruden offense.

    Kerryon Johnson handled five carries for 23 yards before exiting in the first quarter with a knee injury in Detroit's Week 7 divisional tilt against the Vikings.

    Advice: Johnson exited in the first quarter and returned to the sideline with a knee brace on — a grim sign for his availability for Week 8. He spent a few minutes on the bike before walking with a noticeable limp for the remainder of the game. Rookie Ty Johnson notably replaced Kerryon ahead of J.D.

    Adam Thielen hauled in one of his two targets for a 25-yard touchdown before exiting in the first half of Week 7 against the Lions.

    Advice: Thielen's hamstring was injured on a diving 25-yard touchdown catch that saw Kirk Cousins nail the 29-year-old behind two defenders on a beautiful bootleg play-action toss from outside the pocket. It's unfortunate as Thielen (along with teammate Stefon Diggs) had both hit their strides from Cousins of late, seeing the former spike four touchdowns in Minnesota's past three games. Time will tell on the extent of Thielen's injury since he was in noticeable pain and agitated on the sideline. He was replaced by rookie Olabisi Johnson. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:07 pm

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Broncos are open to trading Emmanuel Sanders ahead of next Tuesday's deadline.

    Advice: Per Schefter, the Broncos want more than the fourth-round pick they received for Demaryius Thomas last October. That makes sense, but it is probably still a tough ask for a 32-year-old wideout coming off a torn Achilles' tendon and headed to free agency. Schefter lists the Panthers, Patriots, Eagles and 49ers as teams who could be in the market.

Per Raanan, it's uncertain if he'll be ready for Week 8 against Detroit as the Giants plan to exercise the utmost caution coming off Shepard's second concussion in a four-week span.

Speaking after the game, Sanders was asked what went wrong. "You know the answer," Sanders said. "You watched the same game." If you watched the game, you saw a completely immobile Flacco getting devoured by the Chiefs' previously stagnant pass rush. With 10 days between now and the Broncos' Week 8 trip to Indianapolis, it's possible contract-year Sanders has played his final game in Denver. The trade deadline is in 12 days.

    Advice: As was Adrian Peterson (quad), though Peterson's absence appeared to be more of a rest day. Thompson's status is very much in doubt for Sunday's daunting date with the 49ers. Wendell Smallwood is the next man up at the change-of-pace/pass-catching position in the Redskins' backfield. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:09 pm

  • Saints add Zach Zenner as Kamara's insurance
    Saints signed RB Zach Zenner.

    Advice: New Orleans also worked out Travaris Cadet before making this move, signs that lead us to believe Alvin Kamara (ankle) will truly be limited until the team's Week 9 bye. Zenner most recently rushed for 10/51 with Detroit this preseason and closed out Week 17 with a 22-touch, 123-yard performance. Even if Kamara's ruled out for Sunday, Latavius Murray is expected to take on the lion's share of reps over Zenner. Murray needs to be universally rostered in fantasy leagues.

  • Sterling Shepard (concussion) limited Wed.
    Sterling Shepard (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: He remains in the league's protocol. It would be wise for Shepard to sit this one out after suffering two concussions in the season's first five weeks. The Giants should be treating him carefully. If/when Shepard sits, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton should soak up the bulk of the receiver work, though Slayton will likely have to deal with Patrick Peterson's coverage outside.

  • Emmanuel Sanders upgraded to 'full' Tuesday
    Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was upgraded to "full" in Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: In other words, he will be out there against the Chiefs. Even in a plus matchup, Sanders will be a low-end WR3. Courtland Sutton has taken control of the Broncos' receiver corps, currently checking in as ninth in the league in receiving (477). Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:16 pm

  • Chris Thompson diagnosed with turf toe
    Chris Thompson has been diagnosed with turf toe.

    Advice: Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Thompson's case is "mild," but that his Week 7 availability is in "some doubt." We would say it's in major doubt. Davante Adams had 10 days to get ready for the Packers' Week 5 game against the Cowboys and still couldn't get cleared. He remained sidelined eight days later for Week 6. The Redskins' first practice report will come Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:00 pm

  • 'Optimism' Emmanuel Sanders plays Thursday
    NFL.com's James Palmer reports there is "optimism" Emmanuel Sanders (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Chiefs.

    Advice: Sanders practiced again on Tuesday, an excellent sign he will be ready to go on the short week. Joe Flacco has been having trouble making multiple fantasy receivers relevant any given week — and it's usually been Courtland Sutton — but there should be room for the two of Sutton and Sanders against the Chiefs' shaky defense. The game's over/under is near 50. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:46 am

  • Kerryon Johnson totals 61 yards, TD vs. Pack
    Kerryon Johnson rushed 13 times for 34 yards and one touchdown in the Lions' Week 6 loss to the Packers, adding two catches for 27 yards on four targets.

    Advice: Johnson wasn't nearly as involved as he was in Detroit's previous game against the Chiefs when he logged 28 touches as a true workhorse. J.D. McKissic sprinkled in for five touches in this one, but Johnson was able to score from one yard out in the first quarter for the Lions' lone touchdown. Detroit settled for too many field goals. Johnson will be a middling RB2 in a tough Week 7 date with the Vikings on a short week. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:00 pm

  • Manny Sanders (knee) listed as limited Monday
    Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Monday.

    Advice: The Broncos didn't actually practice, but were required to submit an estimated injury report. Sanders got banged up on Sunday, but reportedly isn't dealing with a serious injury and has a real shot to suit up Thursday night against the Chiefs. The 32 year old has quieted down a bit after a hot start to the season with just two catches for nine scoreless yards over the last two weeks. Sanders (38 targets) has worked as the offense's No. 2 WR behind Courtland Sutton (46). Rotoworld.com Oct 14, 2:01 pm

  • New England brings back veteran TE Ben Watson
    Patriots signed TE Ben Watson.

    Advice: Watson's an upgrade in the passing game over in-line blockers Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo even at the ripe age of 38. The Patriots previously released Watson only seven days ago, but backup FB Jakob Johnson's trip to injured reserve vacated a spot for the vet to re-sign with the team. He made two catches on three targets this preseason. Rotoworld.com Oct 14, 9:56 am

  • Shepard practicing but 'long shot' to play
    Sterling Shepard (concussion) took part in individual drills at Monday's practice.

    Advice: It's a good first step for Shepard, though SNY beat reporter Ralph Vacchiano cautions that he's still a "long shot" to suit up against the Cardinals in Week 7. Shepard suffered his second concussion of the season in a Week 5 loss to Minnesota. Golden Tate and Darius Slayton will continue to soak up targets in his absence. As insurance, the G-Men re-signed Bennie Fowler on Monday. Rotoworld.com Oct 14, 8:23 am

  • Report: Not much concern for Sanders (knee)
    NFL Network's James Palmer reports Emmanuel Sanders (knee) isn't dealing with a serious injury.

    Advice: Specifically, Palmer stated Sanders' injury, "Doesn’t appear to be at all serious. Not much concern right now even with a short week." Ian Rapoport also stated that his understanding is that there is optimism that Sanders will suit up Thursday night against the Chiefs. At the very least, it appears Sanders has avoided a serious injury and has a real shot to suit up in Week 7 despite the quick turnaround. Rotoworld.com Oct 13, 5:57 pm

  • Sanu has 3 grabs for 29 yards in ATL loss
    Mohamed Sanu caught 3-of-4 targets for 29 yards in the Falcons' Week 6 loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: With the state of the defense, Sanu can pop up for a decent fantasy line while the Falcons play catch-up in games, but Sanu will typically have 3-6 receptions and fewer than 60 yards. Sanu is arguably the fourth pass-catching option for Matt Ryan with Austin Hooper's fourth-year breakout season. Sanu is a bye-week WR4 option at home against the Rams next week.

  • Manny Sanders (knee) done for the afternoon
    Emmanuel Sanders left Sunday's Week 6 game against the Titans with a knee injury and will not return.

    Advice: Sanders was slowed by a knee injury in practice this week and must have aggravated it during the first half. He'll finish the afternoon with just one catch for no yards on three targets. Without him, Denver will rely on Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton and tight end Noah Fant to lead the team's pass-catching corps in the second half. Rotoworld.com Oct 13, 3:10 pm

  • Peterson rushes for 118 yards in feature role
    Adrian Peterson rushed 23 times for 118 yards in Week 6 against Miami.

    Advice: The Redskins stuck to their plan of featuring Peterson, who had a season high in carries. He also got involved in the pass game with two catches for 18 yards. Peterson ran hard and looked the best he has all season, though it came against a tanking Dolphins team. This was a statement game from Peterson after fired coach Jay Gruden made him a healthy scratch in Week 1 and rarely used him the last few weeks. With the Redskins moving to a run-heavy scheme under Bill Callahan, Peterson is on the RB2 map against the 49ers in Week 7. Rotoworld.com Oct 13, 1:23 pm
