Player Notes

  • Report: Colts not ready to shut down Luck
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Andrew Luck (shoulder) will return if he's healthy this season, regardless of the Colts' record.

    Advice: The Colts are giving somewhat mixed signals as Jacoby Brissett has been told to prepare as if he'll be the starter for the rest of the season, though Rapoport said it's a "fact" that Luck will return if healthy. Per Rapsheet, Luck will not practice this week following his latest setback and a late November return is probably his best case scenario. The Colts will continue to hold off on placing Luck on season-ending I.R., but his lack of tangible progress may eventually force their hand. Rotoworld.com 53 minutes ago

  • Ben Watson active for Week 7
    Ben Watson (knee) is active for Week 7 against the Vikings.

    Advice: He was listed as questionable, but Watson was always expected to play. He could see more usage than usual this week due to Baltimore's wide receiver injuries. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:53 am

  • DeVante Parker (ankle) officially inactive
    Dolphins declared WR DeVante Parker, LB Stephone Anthony, G Isaac Asiata, CB Byron Maxwell, S Maurice Smith, DT Vincent Taylor and OT Sam Young inactive for Week 7 against the Jets.

    Advice: Parker is still nursing a sprained ankle he suffered against Tennessee in Week 5. Slot receiver Jarvis Landry should see a massive workload in Parker's absence. Andre Branch (knee), Xavien Howard (ankle) and Mike Pouncey (concussion) are all active for the Fins. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:50 am

  • Mike Wallace active, but struggled in warmups
    Mike Wallace (back) is active for Week 7 against the Vikings.

    Advice: Unfortunately, multiple beat writers noted Wallace looked stiff and uncomfortable in warmups. He's a legitimate goose-egg candidate at less than 100 percent facing off with Xavier Rhodes. The Ravens' inactives are WR Jeremy Maclin, TE Maxx Williams, WR Chris Matthews, RG Matt Skura, RB Terrance West, and LB Tim Williams. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:49 am

  • As expected, Jameis Winston starts at Buffalo
    Jameis Winston is active for Week 7 at Buffalo.

    Advice: He'll play through a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder. Ryan Fitzpatrick will be available in relief. The Bucs' Week 7 inactives are TE Antony Auclair, OL Caleb Benenoch, DE Ryan Russell, DT Sealver Siliga, CB Josh Robinson, S Isaiah Johnson, and G/C Joe Hawley. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:46 am

  • Jordan Matthews returns to lineup against TB
    Jordan Matthews is active for Week 7 against the Bucs.

    Advice: He used the bye to get a splint fitted for his surgically repaired thumb. Matthews is in the conversation as a WR4/flex play due to Buffalo's shortage of receiving options. The Bills' Week 7 inactives are OGs John Miller and Connor McDermott, TE Charles Clay, OT Seantrel Henderson, LB Ramon Humber, WR Kaelin Clay, and DT Cedric Thornton. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:41 am

  • DeMarco Murray officially active on Sunday
    Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's Week 7 game versus the Browns.

    Advice: Murray has been battling a hamstring injury for over two months, but with Derrick Henry continuing to press the veteran, Murray has been playing through the injury. The last time that Murray only put in a limited practice during the week, he out-snapped Henry 48-to-30 versus the Seahawks. With the Titans having a bye week upcoming in Week 8, Tennessee may lighten Murray's workload today, especially if they are able to control this game like we believe they should. Murray is a risky RB3/flex option while Henry is an upside flex option or emergency RB2. Inactive for the Titans are WR Darius Jennings, DB Kalan Reed, S Johnathan Cyprien, OL Corey Levin, WR Corey Davis, OLB Kevin Dodd and DL David King. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:41 am

  • Marqise Lee active vs Colts
    Marqise Lee (knee) is active for Week 7 against the Colts.

    Advice: Lee isn't 100 percent, but will play despite only getting in one practice this week. Jacksonville's inactives are RB Leonard Fournette, WR Jaelen Strong, OL Josh Walker, C Brandon Linder, OL William Poehl, CB Jalen Myrick, and CB Lafayette Pitts. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:37 am

    Cardinals declared RB Andre Ellington, QB Blaine Gabbert, WR Chad Williams, RB D.J. Foster, OL Daniel Munyer, DL Olsen Pierre, and TE Ricky Seals-Jones inactive for Week 7 against the Rams.

    Advice: Ellington is battling a quad injury. Adrian Peterson will again get all he can handle. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:35 am

  • Willie Snead officially inactive vs. Packers
    Saints declared WR Willie Snead (hamstring) inactive for Week 7 against the Packers.

    Advice: The Saints haven't been telling the truth about Snead's health since his return from suspension. Ted Ginn is now set up for another nice day in Snead's absence. Also inactive for the Saints are CB Sterling Moore, QB Taysom Hill, DE Hau'oli Kikaha, OG John Greco, WR Austin Carr and DT John Hughes. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:34 am

  • Benny Cunningham inactive for Week 7
    Benny Cunningham (hamstring) is inactive for Week 7 against the Panthers.

    Advice: Cunningham has eaten into Tarik Cohen's snaps when active this season, so this is an upgrade to Cohen's fantasy outlook. Chicago also declared Markus Wheaton (groin), CB Sherrick McManis (hamstring), LB John Timu (ankle, knee), C Hroniss Grasu (hand), DL John Jenkins, and QB Mark Sanchez inactive for Week 7.

  • Kelvin Benjamin (knee) officially active
    Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is active for Week 7 against the Bears.

    Advice: Benjamin missed the first two practices of the week, but it seems like the Panthers are just managing his balky knee. He will be a solid WR2 against Chicago. C Ryan Kalil (neck) is also active for the first time since Week 1. Carolina declared Luke Kuechly (concussion), Fozzy Whittaker (ankle), OT John Theus (concussion), S Demetrious Cox (ankle), S Kurt Coleman (knee), C Greg Van Roten (shoulder), and QB Garrett Gilbert inactive for Week 7.

  • Arians wants Peterson getting 25 carries/g
    Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he "would love" if Adrian Peterson saw 25 carries per game.

    Advice: He added they could get Peterson involved in the passing game now that he has more of the playbook down, something they may need with Andre Ellington unlikely to play against the Rams. Peterson is a must-start this week in a great matchup. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:58 am

  • Report: Prosise will be inactive or limited
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports C.J. Prosise (ankle) will either be inactive or play "minimal snaps" Week 7 against the Giants.

    Advice: This is a surprise. A full participant in practice both Thursday and Friday, Prosise was fully expected to return after sitting out two games and the bye with a bum ankle. With Prosise expected to be at best limited, J.D. McKissic should retain a role in the passing game, but neither is worth starting in fantasy. Prosise is not a must-hold in shallow leagues.

  • Sterling Shepard to return versus Seahawks
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Sterling Shepard (questionable, ankle) will play Week 7 against the Seahawks.

    Advice: Shepard was expected to be a game-time call, but apparently he showed enough to get the green light from New York's medical staff. It's a bad matchup but with Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall both out with season-ending ankle injuries, Shepard should see plenty of looks from Eli Manning. Shepard's return could come at the expense of Evan Engram, who led the G-Men with 82 yards on seven targets a week ago. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:03 am

  • Bengals to be without John Ross (knee) Sunday
    John Ross (questionable, knee) is not expected to play Week 7 against the Steelers.

    Advice: Ross still needs another week to recover from a nagging knee injury. Holder of the fastest forty time in the history of the NFL Combine, Ross will be a nice deep threat for Andy Dalton if he can ever get healthy. So far, he's played just five snaps this year.

  • Martavis Bryant to see increased role Sunday
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Martavis Bryant will have an "increased role" against the Bengals in Week 7.

    Advice: It's possible the Steelers are looking to showcase Bryant in hopes of trading him before the October 31 deadline, though perhaps it's more of a "squeaky wheel getting the grease" situation. Either way, Bryant should be in for close to a full workload Sunday after losing snaps to JuJu Smith-Schuster in recent weeks. Given his recent lack of production, fantasy owners might want to wait a week before reinserting Bryant into their starting lineups. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:30 am

  • Aaron Rodgers can resume throwing in 6 weeks
    According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, doctors have told the Packers that Aaron Rodgers (collarbone, I.R.) can resume throwing in six weeks.

    Advice: That would give Rodgers at least a "chance" to return this year, though most reports suggest that it's still unlikely. Now that he's on I.R., the earliest Rodgers could return is December 17 against Carolina. Former UCLA standout Brett Hundley will lead the offense during his absence. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:26 am

  • Melvin Gordon to suit up versus Broncos
    Melvin Gordon (questionable, shoulder) will play Week 7 against the Broncos.

    Advice: The injury limited Gordon at practice this week but there was never much concern about his status for Sunday. Gordon had some lean weeks early in the year but has come on strong with 313 yards from scrimmage and four touchdowns over his last two outings. He'll be a rock-solid RB1 against a Denver run defense that somehow let up 117 rushing yards to Orleans Darkwa in Week 6. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:03 am

  • Keenan Allen gets the green light for Week 7
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Keenan Allen (questionable, shoulder) will play Week 7 against the Broncos.

    Advice: It wasn't looking good for Allen after he injured himself at practice this week but apparently the Chargers think he's well enough to play. It's a tough assignment against the Broncos, though Allen scored his only touchdown of the year against them back in Week 1. Getting this information now is a huge help as it would have been tough on fantasy owners to wait on Allen's status with the Chargers kicking off at 4:25 PM ET. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:58 am
