Player Notes

  • Diontae Johnson (toe) held out of practice
    Diontae Johnson (toe) did not practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Johnson left Sunday's game against the Titans after 15 targets, limping off with trainers. He just returned from a back injury that kept him out for Week 6. A massive game against the Ravens is in store on Sunday, and the Steelers are obviously better with their top target on the field. Continue to monitor the injury reports each day this week. 33 minutes ago

  • Arians: Antonio Brown will be ready for Week 9
    Bucs coach Bruce Arians said WR Antonio Brown will be "ready to go" for Week 9 against the Saints.

    Advice: Arians adds that Brown "looks fantastic" and is already participating in meetings and strength work. The Bucs are considered one of the top teams in the NFL through seven weeks of the season, but adding a volatile ingredient like Brown to a currently well-designed recipe will either hurt the final product or act as the missing piece, helping it reach its best form. Chris Godwin has been ruled out for Week 8 with a broken finger, so if his Week 9 status is in doubt Brown could be instantly in line for a significant role. Today, 3:51 pm

  • Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) DNP Wednesday
    Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: He's dealing with a Grade 1 hamstring strain after missing several weeks with an ankle injury. This is shaping up as a lost season for Thomas, but managers should have him for the fantasy stretch run. His Week 8 status is in doubt. Today, 1:49 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Julio Jones (hip) cleared to play against Panthers
    Julio Jones (hip) was removed from the Week 8 injury report and will play Thursday night against the Panthers.

    Advice: Off back-to-back strong games, Jones is a lock-and-load top-six WR1. Today, 1:22 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • N'Keal Harry (concussion) absent Wednesday
    N'Keal Harry (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Harry was knocked out of the Week 7 loss to the 49ers in the first quarter and is in the protocol. He has a combined 19-172-1 line on 32 targets through six games and is well of the fantasy map. Today, 1:19 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Tim Patrick (hamstring) not practicing Wednesday
    Tim Patrick (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Patrick was injured against the Chiefs last Sunday, catching 3-of-4 targets for 44 scoreless yards in the loss. He'd emerged as the Broncos' No. 1 wideout in recent weeks. Today, 11:43 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Colts designate Michael Pittman (calf) to return
    Colts designated WR Michael Pittman (calf) to return from injured reserve.

    Advice: It opens Pittman's 21-day practice window to return from I.R. following his compartment syndrome. Pittman has a meager nine catches for 73 scoreless yards in three games of action. He's well off the redraft radar. Today, 10:56 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Report: Teams have called HOU about Randall Cobb
    The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports teams have called the Texans about the availability of Randall Cobb.

    Advice: Cobb is coming off an 8-95 line on 10 targets against the Packers in Week 7, so this might be the time to sell high on him ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline. The 30-year-old slot man inked a three-year deal with Houston in the offseason and has posted a meager 30-372-2 line on 38 targets through seven games. It wouldn't take much to acquire him. Today, 10:37 am

  • Report: Packers have 'inquired about' Will Fuller
    The Athletic's Aaron Reiss reports the Packers are "among the teams to inquire about" the availability of Will Fuller.

    Advice: Reiss adds that "no deal is imminent," and the Texans aren't interested in a fire sale and "won't trade just to trade." Fuller is in the final year of his rookie deal and obviously needs a new contract after this season. Houston may not be willing to pay him the kind of money he's seeking, so trading him ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline could be their best move to get compensation back in return. Fuller is a top-20 NFL wideout when healthy. Pairing him with Davante Adams and Aaron Rodgers would be really fun. Today, 10:28 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Allen Robinson in league's concussion protocol
    Allen Robinson is in the league's concussion protocol.

    Advice: Robinson exited late in the fourth quarter of Monday night's loss to the Rams after getting his head driven into the turf face-first. On a short week ahead of a Sunday afternoon tilt against the Saints, Robinson will have to quickly progress through the protocol to gain clearance. Consider him questionable for Week 8 at the moment. Today, 10:17 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Jalen Reagor (thumb) cleared to practice
    Jalen Reagor (thumb) is practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Reagor was activated from IR earlier this week. He looks on track to return Sunday night against the Cowboys. With DeSean Jackson sidelined, Reagor and Travis Fulgham should lead the Eagles in Week 8 targets. Today, 8:51 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • John Brown (knee) back at practice
    John Brown (knee) is practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a good start to the week for Brown, who missed Week 7. He'll likely be listed as limited. Brown's return would cut into rookie Gabriel Davis' snaps. Today, 8:41 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Texans' Isaiah Coulter: Activated from IR
    Texans activated WR Isaiah Coulter (neck) from injured reserve.

    Advice: Coulter missed most of training camp and spent the first seven weeks on IR. The rookie fifth-rounder could make his debut after Houston's Week 8 bye. Today, 7:51 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Russell Gage limited with knee issue on Tuesday
    Russell Gage was limited in Monday and Tuesday's practices with a knee issue.

    Advice: It's a new "injury" for Gage, who was listed with a shoulder in Week 7. He was removed from the injury report on Friday before operating in his normal role against the Lions. That figures to also be the case for Thursday night's game against the Panthers. Gage offers low-end WR4 value in PPR leagues. Yesterday, 1:51 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Ravens sign Dez Bryant to practice squad
    Ravens signed WR Dez Bryant to their practice squad. 

    Advice: At long last, Bryant is with the Ravens after working out for the team in August. Bryant has been out of the league since tearing his Achilles' tendon with the Saints last year. He could be a decent speculative add in super-deep fantasy leagues, but it's hard to imagine the Ravens offense supporting another fantasy relevant pass catcher. Yesterday, 8:55 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Chris Godwin (finger) out for Week 8 vs. NYG
    Bucs WR Chris Godwin fractured his index finger and is out for Week 8 against the Giants. 

    Advice: Apparently Godwin broke his left index finger making a touchdown grab last week against Vegas. He had surgery to repair the fracture and will miss at least one game. Godwin has played in just four games for the Bucs this season. The team believes he has a shot to play in Week 9, according to The Athletic's Greg Auman. When Godwin has been out of the lineup, Mike Evans' has seen his opportunity spike, averaging nine targets, 6.33 receptions, and 89 yards. Evans goes from a flex option to a must-start for Week 8 against the Giants. Antonio Brown is not expected to play for Tampa until Week 9 against the Saints. Yesterday, 8:03 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Robinson runs 21 routes, sees 1 target in Week 7
    Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson caught his only target for four yards in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over Denver. 

    Advice: Robinson ran 21 pass routes against the Broncos, second only to Tyreek Hill. Mecole Hardman ran just 11 routes and saw two targets in Week 7. It was a slow day for the KC passing attack, as the team's defense dominated the Broncos from start to finish. Robinson remains a superior fantasy option to Hardman for as long as Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is out. Yesterday, 7:45 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Bruce Arians: Bucs WRs struggling with injuries
    Bucs head coach Bruce Arians said Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Scotty Miller are all dealing with nagging injuries and are not 100 percent healthy. 

    Advice: Arians cited the receivers' health in explaining why the team signed Antonio Brown to a one-year deal. “They’re hurting,” Arians said, “they’re playing, but they’re nowhere near full speed. I think we can get better and better. ... Offensively we’ve been struggling all year with injuries. I wanna be able to make that playoff push with whoever’s available.” Arians said Godwin (hamstring) is playing at 80 percent, Evans (ankle) at 80 percent, and Miller (hip) at 85 percent. This probably doesn't explain Evans' lack of involvement in the Tampa offense when Godwin is in the lineup. Evans drafters should look to him as a flex option going forward. Yesterday, 7:28 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Robert Woods has 3-22 receiving night in MNF win
    Robert Woods caught 3-of-5 targets for 22 yards in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Bears.

    Advice: He added 23 yards on four rushing attempts but fumbled away one of those that was easily scooped up by Eddie Jackson and returned for a short touchdown after Woods was blown up in the backfield. Woods hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 1 in this run-dominant offense. He and Cooper Kupp have devolved into weekly WR3 plays ahead of a Week 8 date on the road at the Dolphins. Monday, 8:55 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Anthony Miller goes 3-20 in loss to Rams
    Anthony Miller caught 3-of-5 targets for 20 yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

    Advice: One of his missed connections was an end-zone shot that was broken up. Miller hasn't scored since Week 3 and hasn't topped 41 yards since Week 1. He's obviously well off the fantasy radar as the Bears' fourth or fifth option in a horrid offense. Monday, 8:53 pm
