  • DeVante Parker won't guarantee he'll play vs. BUF
    Speaking Thursday, DeVante Parker (shoulder, hamstring) declined to guarantee he will suit up for Week 8 against the Bills. 

    Advice: "We have to wait and see what happens," Parker said Thursday. "Injuries happen." This was after he said he "felt good." Parker is once again practicing on a limited basis after missing the Dolphins' past three games. If Parker does suit up as a two-touchdown road 'dog in Buffalo, he will be an uninspiring WR4 behind Jaylen Waddle. Fantasy managers should have little confidence Parker could complete a 60-minute contest right now.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 13 minutes ago

  • NO beat: Ingram will let Kamara be 'more dynamic'
    NewOrleans.com's Nick Underhill said the Saints' signing of Mark Ingram will allow the Saints to "move [Alvin] Kamara around the field, and get him some looks as an outside wide receiver and from the slot." 

    Advice: The Saints have used Kamara as more of a traditional, between-the-tackles runner this season while the team's personnel limitations have stopped coaches from deploying Kamara in a more "dynamic" role, Underhill said. Kamara, who handled 20 rushing attempts Monday night against Seattle, already has 61 percent of the carries he had in 2020 and should blow by his career high in rushes this year. Saints coaches wanted to use Kamara more as a pass catcher lining up in the slot and out wide, but "those plans got blown up when Tony Jones Jr. suffered an injury against the Giants," Underhill said, adding that a "higher percentage of [Kamara's] touches are coming on runs up the middle where he’s getting hit by bigger and stronger players than he would be on a reception or run outside the numbers." Ingram absorbing some of those hits on up-the-middle runs should mitigate wear and tear on Kamara and could lead to a more prominent pass-catching role. His PPR prospects don't take a hit with the additional of Ingram. Kamara has a team-high 26 percent target share through Week 7.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 16 minutes ago

  • Sterling Shepard (hamstring) 'feeling good now'
    Speaking after Thursday's return to practice, Sterling Shepard (hamstring) said he is "feeling good now." 

    Advice: Shepard also confirmed his most recent hamstring injury was to the opposite leg of the one that slowed him earlier this season. It's not exactly a positive that Shepard has already had hamstring pulls to both legs with more than half the season to go, but he will be active on Monday against the Chiefs' porous defense as we are unsure of Kadarius Toney (ankle) and Kenny Golladay's (knee) status. Shepard will be a usage-based top-30 option with a good matchup.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 24 minutes ago
