Player Notes

  • Jets work out Corey Coleman, Rishard Matthews
    Free agent WRs Corey Coleman and Rishard Matthews worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

    Advice: Coleman was cut twice by the Patriots in September and he's not a bet to make a 53-man roster anytime soon. Matthews is the better receiver of the two and would make sense from the Jets perspective given Quincy Enunwa's injury. The Jets also worked out RT Derek Newton (both knees) and RB Donnel Pumphrey. Yesterday, 4:14 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • No surgery for Josh Allen, but he's out weeks
    Josh Allen (elbow) will miss at least the next two or three games and will be week to week after that.

    Advice: A second opinion on his elbow from Dr. James Andrews confirmed that Allen has UCL damage to his throwing arm, but he will not need Tommy John surgery. Instead Allen will rest and rehab with the hope that he can return in about one month. With Allen out, the Bills can either start Nathan Peterman or Derek Anderson, who they signed just last week. Streaming defenses against this Bills offense is an attractive strategy. Yesterday, 4:09 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Greg Zuerlein (groin) returning for Week 7
    Greg Zuerlein (groin) will resume kicking for the Rams in Week 7 against the 49ers.

    Advice: The Rams telegraphed Zuerlein's return by releasing Cairo Santos, and Santos confirmed his now ex-teammate's good health in a farewell tweet. Zuerlein is an elite K1 on a weekly basis. Yesterday, 2:52 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Devonta Freeman undergoing groin surgery
    ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports Devonta Freeman (injured reserve) will undergo groin surgery on Thursday.

    Advice: Freeman injured both his foot and groin in his Week 5 return against the Steelers. He mulled playing through the groin issue but opted to go under the knife. He will be a candidate for return from injured reserve but must sit a minimum of eight weeks. Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith could form a near-even committee in Freeman's absence. Yesterday, 2:15 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Rams signal Zuerlein's return, cut K Santos
    Rams released K Cairo Santos.

    Advice: Santos spent two games in L.A. His release should mean Greg Zuerlein is returning for Week 7 against the 49ers. Yesterday, 2:05 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Gruden gives Derek Carr vote of confidence
    Speaking Tuesday, Jon Gruden gave Derek Carr a vote of confidence as the Raiders' quarterback.

    Advice: "He is the strength of this football team," Gruden said. "He is on my watch. I said it when I got here, if he doesn't play well, I've failed." This goes beyond a normal coachspeak vote of confidence. Gruden seems completely sincere. Plus, the Raiders don't have a legitimate option behind Carr. Gruden has actually managed to dramatically increase both Carr's completion percentage and yards per attempt, but Carr has been a turnover machine and seemed to lack confidence at times. He was unspeakably bad in the Raiders' London loss to the Seahawks. The duo has two weeks to draw something up for the Colts in Week 8. Yesterday, 1:48 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Ed Dickson (quad) could return in Week 8
    Ed Dickson (quad, NFI) will practice when the Seahawks come off their bye in Week 8 and could return against the Lions.

    Advice: Speaking Tuesday, coach Pete Carroll apparently sounded more optimistic about Dickson's status than K.J. Wright's. With Nick Vannett dealing with a bulky back, Dickson's return would be a boost for the Seahawks' undermanned offense. Dickson would start out as a low-end TE2 in fantasy. Yesterday, 1:26 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Cole Wick
    49ers waived TE Cole Wick Yesterday, 1:16 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Raiders concerned about Lynch's groin injury
    Raiders coach Jon Gruden admits the team is concerned about Marshawn Lynch's groin injury, and that it could be a long-term issue.

    Advice: Yikes. It sounds like Lynch will be seeing some doctors during the Raiders' Week 7 bye. Ageless Lynch has a been rare bright spot for Jon Gruden's unmitigated disaster of a team so far this season. His loss would be massive on offense. Although Jalen Richard is catching a ton of passes, Doug Martin is the next man up for Lynch's role. Yesterday, 1:06 pm

  • Meritocracy: 49ers sign pocket sloth Savage
    49ers signed QB Tom Savage.

    Advice: The NFL's "meritocracy" strikes again. The 49ers have wanted to add a third quarterback since Jimmy Garoppolo was lost for the season. For some reason they have settled on Savage, one of the worst quarterbacks we have ever seen take regular snaps in the NFL. Savage has zero movement skills or accuracy. It would be pure cataclysm for the 49ers were he forced into a game behind C.J. Beathard. Considering the reckless nature of Beathard's game, Savage could certainly see snaps. Second-year UDFA Nick Mullens is the other quarterback on the roster. Yesterday, 12:54 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Browns elevate WR Da'Mari Scott to 53-man
    Browns promoted WR Da'Mari Scott from the practice squad.

    Advice: A 23-year-old UDFA out of Fresno State, Scott caught six balls for 86 yards during the preseason. Typically, he would not be in line for any snaps on offense, but the Browns are in a true crisis situation at wideout. Scott could get some run against the Bucs. Yesterday, 12:30 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Rams sign veteran WR Nick Williams
    Rams signed WR Nick Williams.

    Advice: Coach Sean McVay knows journeyman Williams from his days in Washington. He will round out the Rams' receiver corps while Cooper Kupp (knee) is on the mend. Williams is highly unlikely to see targets on offense. Yesterday, 11:56 am

  • Miami-based writer: Le'Veon reporting Monday
    Miami-based writer Jonathan Skurowitz reports Le'Veon Bell will end his holdout and report to the Steelers next Monday. Yesterday, 11:50 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Rishard Matthews working out for Jets
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent WR Rishard Matthews is working out for the Jets on Tuesday.

    Advice: Matthews visited with the Browns and Cardinals last week. Cut by the Titans at the end of September, it is surprising Matthews has not found a new home yet, but perhaps he is just looking for the best possible landing spot. New York just lost Quincy Enunwa to an ankle injury. Yesterday, 9:19 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Eagles hoping to get Mike Wallace back
    Eagles OC Mike Groh hopes to get Mike Wallace (broken leg, IR) back this season.

    Advice: "Hopefully, Mike's progressing and we get a chance to get him back here this season," Groh said. Wallace suffered a fractured fibula in Week 2 and was placed on injured reserve. He is not eligible to return until Week 11, and it is unlikely he is even ready to go then. Wallace can be left on the wire. Yesterday, 8:52 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Falcons bring back K Giorgio Tavecchio
    Falcons signed K Giorgio Tavecchio.

    Advice: Tavecchio will replace Matt Bryant, who is dealing with a hamstring injury. Tavecchio spent time with Atlanta during training camp. Yesterday, 8:49 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Evan Engram (knee) practicing Tuesday
    Evan Engram (knee) participated in Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Engram appeared close to playing last Thursday, so it is not a surprise he is back on the practice field early this week. Engram said he is very optimistic about playing Monday night against the Falcons. Daily Slant: Engram should be good to go this week, and for DFS slates that include Monday's game, Engram makes for a strong tournament play. Most guys coming off multi-week injuries see a big drop in ownership, and Engram's upside in a matchup with Atlanta is huge at an ownership level a fraction of what it would have been if he was healthy all year. Yesterday, 8:42 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Mara wants Odell to play more, talk less
    Giants owner John Mara thinks Odell Beckham "needs to do a little more playing and a little less talking."

    Advice: "I wish he would create the headlines by his play on the field as opposed to what he says and what he does off the field," Mara added. It is good Mara has identified Beckham as the Giants' real problem and not Eli Manning's ever deteriorating skill set. Yesterday, 8:33 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Belichick: Gordon's role 'expanding weekly'
    Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Josh Gordon's "role is expanding weekly."

    Advice: That was certainly the case against the Chiefs when Gordon played 63-of-78 snaps on his way to nine targets. He only managed five catches for 42 yards with that opportunity, but he is clearly trending in the correct direction. He will be an upside WR3 this week against the Bears. Daily Slant: Gordon got 9 targets last week, and with his role expanding weekly he should be looking at 10+ targets this week, especially against a Bears defense that is much better at stopping the running game. Gordon is still too risky to use in DFS cash games, but is an elite tournament play this week. Yesterday, 8:29 am
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Cody Latimer (hamstring) heads to IR
    Giants placed WR Cody Latimer (hamstring) on injured reserve.

    Advice: Latimer suffered the injury covering a punt in Thursday's loss. Latimer opened the season as the No. 3 receiver, but he caught just six passes for 108 yards in four games. He will be a free agent in the spring. Bennie Fowler was added in his place. Yesterday, 7:45 am
