Player Notes

  • Davis (concussion) listed as limited Monday
    Vernon Davis (concussion) was listed as a limited participant in Monday's practice.

    Advice: The Redskins didn't actually practice Monday, but are required to submit an estimated injury report. Davis was limited in practice all of last week and ultimately didn't suit up Sunday. Even if active, Davis will likely split snaps and targets with Jeremy Sprinkle in the Redskins' run-first offense. The entire offense has a brutal road matchup against the Vikings on a short week. It's best to look elsewhere for a streamer option at TE. 10 minutes ago

  • Chris Thompson (toe) listed as a DNP Monday
    Chris Thompson (toe) was listed as a DNP in Monday's practice.

    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. 12 minutes ago

  • Steven Sims (toe) listed as a DNP Monday
    Redskins WR Steven Sims (toe) was listed as a DNP in Monday's practice.

    Advice: The Redskins didn't actually practice Monday, but are required to submit an estimated injury report. Their undrafted rookie WR converted three targets into five yards last week against the 49ers while playing just six snaps. Sims is nothing more than a showdown slate dart throw as a part-time WR in the Redskins' run-first offense. 20 minutes ago
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Adrian Peterson (ankle) listed as DNP Monday
    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. 23 minutes ago
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Brown (ankle) expected to return Week 9
    Coach John Harbaugh said he's "very optimistic" Marquise Brown (ankle) will return for the Ravens' Week 9 matchup against the Patriots.

    Advice: The Ravens have a Week 8 bye. Hollywood hasn't played since Week 5. He posted 4-147-2 and 8-86-0 lines to start the season before failing to surpass 50 receiving yards in three consecutive games in Weeks 3-5. Brown's field-stretching ability would be a major boost to the entire Ravens' offense, although the matchup against Stephon Gilmore and company is obviously far from ideal. 34 minutes ago
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Thielen (hamstring) listed as a DNP Monday
    Adam Thielen (hamstring) was listed as a DNP for Monday's practice.

    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. 45 minutes ago
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Williams (foot) questionable for Week 8
    Coach Jon Gruden said Tyrell Williams (foot) is questionable for the Raiders' Week 8 matchup against the Texans.

    Advice: Williams ripped off 6-105-1, 5-46-1, 3-20-1 and 3-36-1 lines to start the season before missing the Raiders' Week 5 and Week 7 matchups due to a foot injury. There's a low ceiling and floor here considering Derek Carr hasn't fed Williams even eight targets in a game this season, but the talented fifth-year WR remains plenty capable of working as a WR3 as long as he continues to function as the offense's go-to downfield and red-zone threat. 57 minutes ago
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Kingsbury: David Johnson 'didn't feel right'
    Coach Kliff Kingsbury said David Johnson (back) didn't feel right after a couple plays on Sunday.

    Advice: Kingsbury added that Johnson is a "warrior," but he turned the offense over to Chase Edmonds after the Cardinals' starting RB didn't feel right after a couple plays. Johnson was only active for emergency purposes during the Cardinals' Week 7 victory over the Giants, infuriating fantasy owners all around the globe. For what it's worth (likely not much), Kingsbury did note that he appreciates the passion of fantasy players. It'll be tough to project anything resembling a three-down workload for Johnson in this week's matchup against the Saints. Today, 12:56 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Ito Smith (concussion) ruled out for Week 8
    Falcons head coach Dan Quinn confirmed RB Ito Smith (concussion) won't suit up Sunday against the Seahawks.

    Advice: Brian Hill will take his place as the offense's 1.B back. Smith and Devonta Freeman have largely split reps this season whenever Ito has been healthy. It wouldn't be surprising to see Freeman get more of a 70 percent snap share with Smith sidelined, but it's unlikely we see the Falcons' long-time starting RB get a full three-down workload. Both RBs would be low-floor plays if Matt Ryan (ankle) is ultimately sidelined in favor of 38-year-old backup Matt Schaub. Today, 12:42 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Matt Ryan (ankle) not ruled out for Week 8
    Coach Dan Quinn wouldn't rule out Matt Ryan (ankle) for the Falcons' Week 8 matchup against the Seahawks.

    Advice: Quinn confirmed a report that Ryan is dealing with a sprained right ankle and noted the Falcons QB is already running in the pool as part of his rehab. The Falcons head coach also stated, "Hopefully it's not a long-term thing and more a shorter-term thing." Ryan won't practice Wednesday, but his participation throughout the rest of the week should tell us a lot. He's shaping up as a true game-time decision ahead of Sunday. 38-year-old Matt Schaub would get the start if Ryan is ultimately sidelined. Today, 12:36 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Bengals don't rule out A.J. Green (ankle)
    Coach Zac Taylor wouldn't rule out A.J. Green (ankle) for the team's Week 8 matchup against the Rams.

    Advice: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Green isn't expected to return until after the October 29 trade deadline. Taylor wouldn't rule out Green suiting up Sunday against the Rams, but noted that the team won't roll him out there until the stud WR is able to practice full go. It seems very unlikely that we see Green this week against Jalen Ramsey and company. Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and Alex Erickson will continue to work in 3-WR sets as long as AJG remains sidelined. Today, 12:08 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Rivera names Kyle Allen starter against 49ers
    Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Kyle Allen will start in Week 8 against the 49ers.

    Advice: Cam Newton (foot) will "be with the trainers" and continue to rehab throughout the week. Rivera added that Cam "may or may not" return to practice this week, too. Allen's undefeated streak over Carolina's last four games has certainly made the decision to keep Newton sidelined easier as the former's kept his head above water with 901 yards, seven touchdowns and a 65.5 percent completion rate against the Cardinals, Texans, Jags and Bucs since Week 3. Undoubtedly set to face his toughest test to date in San Francisco's nightmarish pass rush, any stumbles on Sunday could result in Newton returning to practice sooner than expected. It would certainly help to have both Trai Turner (ankle) and Greg Little (concussion) back for Week 8. Today, 11:09 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • James Washington (shoulder) back at practice
    Steelers WR James Washington (shoulder) returned to practice Monday.

    Advice: There's still no hard timetable on Washington's return. The second-year wideout only totaled 12 targets in his three starts following Donte Moncrief's riddance to the bench but was still having his best day (3/52) as a pro from Mason Rudolph before injuring his shoulder in Week 6. Returning for Week 8 against the Dolphins is now firmly in the cards. Today, 10:32 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Penny's two snaps 'just worked out that way'
    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Rashaad Penny's usage against the Ravens in Week 7 "just worked out that way."

    Advice: Penny practiced in full throughout the week and finished with two snaps to C.J. Prosise's six. Even so, Carroll didn't blame the second-year runner's two-snap usage on post-hamstring cautiousness, stating they already "had some plays" for Prosise game-planned. Penny's been an afterthought on 19.6 percent of Seattle's offensive snaps this season despite coming off the board No. 27 overall in '18. It would not be shocking to see him shopped (for less return) before next week's trade deadline. Today, 10:30 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Jacob Hollister goes 3/20 versus Ravens
    Jacob Hollister caught 3-of-6 targets for 20 yards in the Seahawks' Week 7 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: In the first full game after Will Dissly's season-ending Achilles' tear, Hollister was the next man uo at tight end. He saw six targets to Luke Willson's one, and Hollister's six looks were tied for third on the team. Hollister will at least be in the discussion for TE-desperate owners next week against the Falcons. Today, 10:22 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Mayfield 'good to go' following hip injury
    Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said Baker Mayfield (hip) is "good to go" after resting over the bye week.

    Advice: "I thought he looked good today," Kitchens added. Mayfield returned to practice following the team's bye week and should be fully cleared for Sunday. Unfortunately, that's when the Browns are slated to face the Patriots. He'll be a middling QB2 even at full strength in that one. Today, 10:15 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Watkins (hamstring) upgraded to day-to-day
    Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is day-to-day.

    Advice: Having been sidelined for the past two contests, Watkins is trending towards returning against the Packers following an extended rest between games. He's failed to eclipse 65 receiving yards since his three-score performance in Week 1 and now likely gets Matt Moore under center with Tyreek Hill healthy on the outside. Watkins is arguably droppable in 12-team leagues assuming Patrick Mahomes (knee) sits for at least three games. Today, 10:05 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Shurmur won't consider benching Daniel Jones
    Giants coach Pat Shurmur said the team has no plans to bench Daniel Jones despite his recent struggles.

    Advice: Danny Dimes has regressed since his epic debut against the Bucs in Week 3, leading some to wonder if the team would consider turning back to declining vet Eli Manning, though Shurmur doesn't think that would be the right move. "I think Daniel is going to learn from everything that is going on," said Shurmur, acknowledging Jones' poor play during the Giants' three-game losing skid. Pulling the rug out from underneath Jones would be a mistake, potentially damaging the rookie's confidence. It would also be a downgrade for the entire offense as the immobile Manning looked completely spent prior to getting benched. Today, 9:56 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Fuller (hamstring) to miss 'several weeks'
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Will Fuller (hamstring) is expected to miss "several weeks."

    Advice: Fuller's tests reportedly showed a "significant" hamstring pull. Unlike the game-planning required to mesh Kenny Stills with DeAndre Hopkins and Fuller in three-wide sets, Houston's offense shouldn't miss a beat with Stills taking over on the outside and Keke Coutee sliding into the slot. Consider Stills the week's top waiver pickup at his position given his 4/105 receiving on 61 snaps (94%) once Fuller exited against the Colts in Week 7. Today, 9:46 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Spencer Ware to visit Cardinals this week
    Free agent RB Spencer Ware will work out for the Cardinals.

    Advice: He'll be joined by former Dolphins and Eagles bruiser Jay Ajayi. The Cardinals are in search of backfield depth with David Johnson (ankle) and D.J. Foster (hamstring) both hobbled. Ware has been a free agent since the Colts released him from injured reserve last month. Today, 8:46 am
