Rashad Jennings, RB, NYG10/31/2014 9:54:00 AM
Description: Giants running back Rashad Jennings has already been ruled out for this Monday night game against Indianapolis, but said his goal was to return for Week 10, according to a Newark Star-Ledger report.
Insight: Jennings has missed four weeks with a left knee injury. He's running, but hasn't cut on the knee yet which comes before practicing.
Jerricho Cotchery, WR, CAR10/31/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: Wideout Jerricho Cotchery caught two balls for a team-high 59 yards against the Saints.
Insight: He's normally the third option behind Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen and fantasy owners can't make a living on a receiver catching two passes.
Greg Olsen, TE, CARCold10/31/2014 9:47:00 AM
Description: Panthers tight end Greg Olsen has non-factor in the Thursday night game against New Orleans.
Insight: Olsen was targeted just four times, catching three, for 30 yards. Cam Newton simply has to use him more than that.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CARCold10/31/2014 9:45:00 AM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin was targeted 10 times, but caught just two for 18 yard..
Insight: That included a drop in the end zone that might have salvaged the day for fantasy owners. Unfortunately, that's what rookies do, and you knew that when you drafted him.
Cam Newton, QB, CARCold10/31/2014 9:43:00 AM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was ugly, completing just 10-of-28 for 151 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception.
Insight: The only saving grace for fantasy owners was his seven carries for 43 yards and a touchdown. He hasn't thrown for more than 205 yards in three games and even his running isn't making him a very good fantasy option.
DeAngelo Williams, RB, CAR10/31/2014 9:41:00 AM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams was active for Thursday night's game against the Saints and produced 50 yards of offense.
Insight: Williams rushed eight times for 20 yards and caught one screen pass for 30 yards. Nine touches is not going to allow him to be fantasy worthy.
Jonathan Stewart, RB, CARCold10/31/2014 9:38:00 AM
Description: Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart had to share the workload with DeAngelo Williams and Cam Newton and it killed his fantasy total.
Insight: Stewart ran the ball just eight times for 46 yards. The return of DeAngelo Williams has significantly reduced Stewart's fantasy value.
Marques Colston, WR, NOSCold10/31/2014 9:37:00 AM
Description: The handwriting is on the wall for Saints wide receiver Marques Colston's owners.
Insight: Colston just isn't a primary target anymore and his fantasy value, save for one big game in Week 7, has been minimal. Thursday night against Carolina he saw three targets, catching all of them, for 36 yards.
Brandin Cooks, WR, NOS10/31/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: Saints rookie wideout Brandin Cooks was a non-factor for most of the game against Carolina, catching just three balls for 38 yards.
Insight: Carolina was protecting against Cooks and the deep ball, so the Saints ran the ball 37 times and threw it just 34 times. The low percentage makes it hard to keep all the receivers happy.
Kenny Stills, WR, NOS10/31/2014 9:30:00 AM
Description: Saints receiver Kenny Stills saw a team-high eight targets, catching five for 72 yards.
Insight: Stills, Brandin Cooks and tight end Jimmy Graham are the future for the Saints receiving corps as older guys like Marques Colston and Robert Meachem slowly gets fazed out.
Jimmy Graham, TE, NOS10/31/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: As Saints tight end Jimmy Graham's shoulder continues to improve, so too do his fantasy numbers.
Insight: Graham played 52-of-76 snaps (68 percent) up from 62 percent in Week 8 and caught all seven targets for 83 yards and a touchdown.
Drew Brees, QB, NOS10/31/2014 9:24:00 AM
Description: Saints quarterback Drew Brees didn't reach the 300-yard passing mark after earning the bonus in four consecutive games.
Insight: Brees threw for 297 yards and one touchdown, but did run one in from a yard out. The Saints offense has been much more balanced with the blossoming of Mark Ingram over the past two games and Brees has averaged just 33 passing attempts over that span.
Travaris Cadet, RB, NOSCold10/31/2014 9:19:00 AM
Description: Saints running back Travaris Cadet was once again the backup to Mark Ingram, but was barely utilized.
Insight: Cadet rushed just two time for one yard and caught three of five targets for 29 yards. Fantasy owners who picked him up a couple of weeks ago can see it was a wasted claim. His minimal value will be reduced even more when the injured running backs (Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas) return to the lineup.
Mark Ingram, RB, NOSHot10/31/2014 9:16:00 AM
Description: New Orleans running back Mark Ingram and his fantasy owners enjoyed another day as the Saints workhorse running back, rushing the ball 30 times for 100 yards and two scores.
Insight: Coming off a 172-yard game in Week 8, one has to wonder what the Saints will do when Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas are ready to return from injury. In the meantime, fantasy owners must start Ingram ever game.
Greg Hardy, DE, CAR10/30/2014 7:27:00 PM
Description: Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy's domestic violence trial has been postponed until after the season, according to Profootballtalk.
Insight: There is no word how this will affect Hardy's suspension, but he most likely try to get it lifted. Carolina could desperately use him.
DeAngelo Williams, RB, CAR10/30/2014 7:25:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is officially active for Thursday night's game against the Saints.
Insight: He will start, but split time with Jonathan Stewart. Williams is no more than a flex play.
Khiry Robinson, RB, NOS10/30/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: Saints running back Khiry Robinson is inactive for Thursday's game against the Panthers due to a forearm injury.
Insight: With him and Pierre Thomas out, Mark Ingram is a borderline RB1 this week. Robinson will look to get back into action for Week 10.
Pierre Thomas, RB, NOS10/30/2014 7:22:00 PM
Description: Saints running back Pierre Thomas (shoulder) is inactive for Thursday night's game against Carolina.
Insight: This will be his second-consecutive game missed. Mark Ingram is line for another big workload.
Jimmy Graham, TE, NOS10/30/2014 7:20:00 PM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is actice for Thursday Night Football.
Insight: No surprise here. Make sure Graham is in all lineups.
Charles Sims, RB, TAM10/30/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie running back Charles Sims (broken ankle), who was on injured reserve/designated for return, is expected to see work Sunday.
Insight: Sims could be in for a nice share of the workload if starter Doug Martin (ankle), isn't ready to play.
Bobby Rainey, RB, TAM10/30/2014 4:12:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers backup/change-of-pace running back Bobby Rainey may be in for a heavy workload with starter Doug Martin dealing with an ankle issue.
Insight: Rainey did rush for 144 yards in Week 2, but isn't thought of as a workhorse back. Charles Sims returned from the injured list this week and could get nearly an even split with Rainey.
Doug Martin, RB, TAMCold10/30/2014 4:09:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin is no longer in a walking boot, but is still unlikely to be ready to go Sunday.
Insight: This Doug Martin, the one we have witnessed all season, isn't fantasy worthy even when healthy. In five games, he's failed to run for more than 45 yards.
Bruce Carter, LB, DAL10/30/2014 4:04:00 PM
Description: Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter has a broken left ring finger, but is expected to play with a splint, according to Dallas beat reporter Todd Archer.
Insight: Carter just returned from a quad injury that cost him three games.
Stepfan Taylor, RB, ARI10/30/2014 2:35:00 PM
Description: Cardinals No. 2 running back Stepfan Taylor is expected to miss 2-4 weeks due to a calf injury suffered early in the game against Philadelphia.
Insight: Andre Ellington has been carrying the workload, but Taylor has been usefull in the red zone. Marion Grice figures to inherit the backup role.
Jason Verrett, CB, SDC10/30/2014 2:30:00 PM
Description: Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett has a torn labrum and will miss 2-3 weeks, according to Ian Rapoport.
Insight: The rookie has played well this season, though his statistics aren't exciting with one interception and 19 tackles.
Giovani Bernard, RB, CIN10/30/2014 2:26:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard missed a second practice due to a hip injury and its looking like he won't play Sunday unless things change very quickly.
Insight: If Bernard can't play, rookie Jeremy Hill becomes a solid RB2 and possibly an RB1 against a weak Jacksonville defense.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/30/2014 2:25:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green (toe) was on the practice field Thursday.
Insight: While he also practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday, Green admitted that he does not want to make the toe injury any worse, so expect this to be a true game-time decision.
Robert Griffin III, QB, WAS10/30/2014 2:23:00 PM
Description: Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (ankle) will start Sunday against Minnesota barring any setbacks, according to coach Jay Gruden.
Insight: Griffin practiced in full again on Thursday, so at this point he's a go. He may not be 100 percent as fantasy owners who don't want to gamble should wait a week and see whether he gets through the game and how he performs.
Reggie Wayne, WR, IND10/30/2014 2:20:00 PM
Description: Colts receiver Reggie Wayne (elbow) matchup against Pittsburgh and didn't practice Thursday, but could return later this week and be ready come Monday night's game.
Insight: Wayne has only posted fantasy-worthy numbers once this season and we'd sort of like to see what Donte Moncrief can do after last week's 100-yard performance.
Vontae Davis, DB, IND10/30/2014 2:15:00 PM
Description: Colts cornerback Vontae Davis was back at practice Thursday and is expected to be in the lineup Monday against the Giants.
Insight: Coach Chuck Pagano and the defense dodged a big one there as he's been one of the best players on the defense.
Donte Moncrief, WR, INDHot10/30/2014 2:08:00 PM
Description: Colts rookie WR Donte Moncrief stepped up and produced when called on last weekend and coach Chuck Pagano specifically called his name out when saying he'd like to get him "as many touches as possible."
Insight: Moncrief was way ahead veteran Hakeem Nicks as a No. 2 option. He caught seven balls for 113 yards and a touchdown and looked as fast as anyone on the field. Don't hurry back Reggie.
Justin Forsett, RB, BAL10/30/2014 2:05:00 PM
Description: Ravens running back Justin Forsett missed Wednesday'a practice but was back to work on Thursday and should be ready for Sunday's division game against Pittsburgh.
Insight: He's dealing with an ankle issue. Forsett has been a pleasant surprise this season, and will remain an RB2 in the Ravens trio of running backs.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/29/2014 7:33:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green (toe) indicated that he is still unsure about his status for Week 9.
Insight: While he practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday, Green admitted that he does not want to make the toe injury any worse. As a result, it is looking likely that he will come down to a game-time decision on Sunday.
Robert Griffin III, QB, WAS10/29/2014 5:23:00 PM
Description: Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (ankle) will start Sunday against Minnesota, according to NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini.
Insight: Griffin practiced in full on Wednesday, so we feel that Russini's report is correct. However, owners need to wait until coach Jay Gruden gives official word, which should come on either Thursday or Friday.
Robert Griffin III, QB, WAS10/29/2014 3:38:00 PM
Description: Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III took first-team reps in practice on Wednesday according to The Washington Post.
Insight: Coach Jay Gruden said Griffin and Colt McCoy will share first-team reps until he makes a decision on who the starter will be this week. Gruden should make up his mind by Friday.
Ryan Mathews, RB, SDC10/29/2014 3:35:00 PM
Description: Chargers running back Ryan Mathews will not be rushed back because Branden Oliver is playing so well in the San Diego backfield.
Insight: Mathews have not played since Sept. 14, and it "appears likely" he will be held out through the Week 10 bye according to the Union-Tribune San Diego. If you have held on to him this long, don't drop him. Remain patient because Mathews may return to be the starter.
Doug Martin, RB, TAM10/29/2014 3:32:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin was in a walking boot on Wednesday due to an ankle injury he suffered in Week 8 against the Vikings.
Insight: He did not practice on Wednesday, and his status for Week 9 is unclear. Bobby Rainey and Charles Sims will have a chance to start if Martin can't go. Check back on Thursday for another Martin update.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/29/2014 3:30:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green practiced on Wednesday according to ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey.
Insight: We don't normally care that much if a player practices or not on Wednesday, but this was Green's first Wednesday practice in about a month. He is going to try and play against the Jaguars on Sunday. If he does, we do not expect his snaps to be limited.
Vontaze Burfict, LB, CIN10/29/2014 3:27:00 PM
Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict had his left knee scoped on Wednesday and is expected to miss at least two games according to ESPN.
Insight: It seems highly unlikely, however, that Burfict will recover in two weeks time. It takes most players about four weeks to come back from a scope. 2014 has been an injury-plagued season for Burfict as he has missed time with concussions, a neck injury, and now his knee.
Tony Romo, QB, DAL10/29/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is calling quarterback Tony Romo a game-time decision according to ESPN's Ed Werner.
Insight: Werner also added Romo will sit out all practices this week and could miss some time, 1-to-2 games. That is enough for fantasy owners to want to pick up another quarterback, just in case, Brandon Weeden will start in place of Romo.
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/29/2014 10:57:00 AM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson expects to return to action after the Lions' Week 9 bye.
Insight: Johnson has been out since Week 5 and will be a huge addition to any team thats has been able to survivor his absence. He will be good to go for the plyaoffs.
Jimmy Graham, TE, NOS10/28/2014 4:55:00 PM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham remained limited in Tuesday's practice due to his shoulder.
Insight: This is simply a formality. There is no reason Graham owners should be concerned even on a short week. The tight end played in 43-of-69 snaps against Green Bay and did not suffer a setback. He is a top-three tight end option for Week 9.
Robert Griffin III, QB, WAS10/28/2014 4:53:00 PM
Description: Redskins coach Jay Gruden continued to say on Tuesday that Robert Griffin III is close to returning
Insight: Gruden has said for weeks that Griffin might play probably to give opponents the feeling that they need to prepare for him. We believe Gruden when he says Griffin is close, but we expect him to return in Week 11 after the Redskins Week 10 bye. That just makes too much sense.
Todd Herremans, G, PHI10/28/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Eagles right guard Todd Herremans has been diagnosed with a torn left biceps, but his plan is to keep playing.
Insight: Offensive line injures have decimated the Eagles this season, but at least fellow interior linemen Jason Kelce and Evan Mathis are getting ready to return to the starting lineup. Herremans likely won't make it through the whole season playing with a torn biceps. We will keep an eye on this situation for LeSean McCoy owners.
Tony Romo, QB, DAL10/28/2014 4:32:00 PM
Description: Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tony Romo's back injury is not related to the back issue he had at the end of the 2013 season.
Insight: That is encouraging news, but the Cowboys are still waiting for the MRI results. Fantasy owners will collectively hold their breathe until then. We will have a much better idea of Romo's status for Week 9 in about a day or so.
Champ Bailey, CB, NOS10/28/2014 3:43:00 PM
Description: Former Redskins and Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey has retired from football.
Insight: Bailey was a three-time All-Pro and 12-time Pro Bowler.
Jordan Cameron, TE, CLE10/28/2014 3:40:00 PM
Description: Browns tight end Jordan Cameron is dealing with a concussion and his availability for the next two weeks is reportedly in doubt, according to a Cleveland Plain Dealer report.
Insight: Cameron's concussion is the third in two years and that's a huge red flag. He suffered the injury on a hit from Brandian Ross of the Raiders.
Jason Kelce, C, PHI10/28/2014 3:37:00 PM
Description: Eagle center Jason Kelce practice said he would be a game-time decision for the Week 9 matchup against Houston
Insight: Kelce would be an immediate upgrade in the middle of the Philadelphia offensive line, which has really struggled without him. LeSean McCoy owners cannot wait for Kelce to get back on the field and neither can Nick Foles owners.
DeAngelo Williams, RB, CAR10/28/2014 3:33:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams will start in Week 9, according to Panthers coach Ron Rivera
Insight: Williams will still share time with Jonathan Stewart so his fantasy value still has an upper limit. Williams hasn't played since Wee4 due to an ankle injury.
Darrin Reaves, RB, CAR10/28/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back Darrin Reaves has been waived.
Insight: Reaves had a chance in Week 3 and Week 4 to show what he could do, but failed to impress and with Jonathan Stewart healthy and DeAngelo Williams ready to return, his roster spot was needed elsewhere.
Michael Campanaro, WR, BAL10/28/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Ravens wideout Michael Campanaro is expected to miss time due to a hamstring injury, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
Insight: Campanaro was targeted three times Sunday and caught all three for 40 yards.
Joique Bell, RB, DET10/28/2014 11:59:00 AM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell's fantasy value appears will take a hit with the addition of Theo Riddick to the mix.
Insight: With Reggie Bush, Bell and Riddick all looking for their share of the workload, we don't think any are fantasy worthy. At least not until we see how it plays out.
Reggie Bush, RB, DET10/28/2014 11:56:00 AM
Description: Detroit running back Reggie Bush's fantasy value, even when he gets healthy, could be in question moving forward as it appears the Lions will use three backs - Bush, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick.
Insight: We are as confused as anyone as to how it will play out, but at the moment it's hard to recommend any of the trio as fantasy worthy.
Theo Riddick, RB, DET10/28/2014 11:53:00 AM
Description: Lions running back Theo Riddick could be added to the Reggie Bush/Joique Bell tandem going forward after a solid game against Atlanta, according to Lions beat writer Tim Twentyman.
Insight: Riddick was Matthews Stafford's primary backfield receiver catching eight balls for 74 yards and a touchdown. A three-man rotation would pretty much rule out any of the trio being fantasy worthy.
Tony Romo, QB, DAL10/27/2014 11:36:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo left Monday Night's game against the Redskins. UPDATE: Romo returned to the game for the last drive of the fourth quarter and overtime.
Insight: Washington sacked Romo for the fourth time early in the third quarter. Romo took the brunt of the hit in his back. The Dallas quarterback had surgery on his back in the offseason. Romo's status is unknown, and the Cowboys turn to Brandon Weeden.
Justin Durant, LB, DET10/27/2014 11:31:00 PM
Description: Cowboys linebacker Justin Durant left Monday night's game against the Redskins.
Insight: Durant suffered an arm injury in the fourth quarter. He will not return.
Nick Fairley, DT, DET10/27/2014 6:42:00 PM
Description: Detroit defensive tackle Nick Fairley will be sidelined for 4-to-5 weeks after spraining his MCL and PCL, according to ESPN Chicago's Michael C. Wright.
Insight: This should actually be considered good news, as many thought he'd be out for the season. Fairley should be back for the Lions' stretch run.
Isaiah Crowell, RB, CLE10/27/2014 6:05:00 PM
Description: Browns coach Mike Pettine admitted running back Isaiah Crowell's role has been reduced because of his ball security issues according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
Insight: The Browns did not give Crowell any carries after he fumbled twice, losing one, against the Raiders in Week 8. Crowell is talented, but he is useless in fantasy if he can't learn to take care of the ball.
Michael Vick, QB, NYJ10/27/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick will start in Week 9 against the Chiefs according to the New York Daily News.
Insight: This is great news to anyone with the Kansas City defense or hoping to pick the Chiefs in a survivor league. Actually, it doesn't really matter if Geno Smith or Vick, Kansas City's defense is a great start next week. Vick can more the offense better than Smith, but Vick is just as turnoever prone.
Jimmy Smith, CB, BAL10/27/2014 5:58:00 PM
Description: Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith will miss "a few weeks" according to The Baltimore Sun.
Insight: The team said doctors believe Smith suffered a mild Lisfranc sprain in Sunday's defeat to Cincinnati. This is music to Ben Roethlisberger owner's ears as Big Ben was firing on all cyclinders in Week 8 and faces Baltimore next.
Richard Crawford, CB, SDC10/27/2014 3:53:00 PM
Description: The Chargers made two moves in their secondary Monday including this one signing Richard Crawford.
Insight: The former Washington Redskins defensive back takes the place of the just released Richard Marshall.
Patrick Peterson, CB, ARI10/27/2014 3:48:00 PM
Description: Cardinals top cornerback, Patrick Peterson, left Sunday's game with a concussion and will have to proceed throught he required protocol before he can play next week.
Insight: Peterson is the Cardinals best defender and dangerous kick returned when called upon. The needs him to be on the field next Sunday when they face Dez Bryant and the Cowboys.
Stepfan Taylor, RB, ARI10/27/2014 3:45:00 PM
Description: Cardinals No. 2 running back Stepfan Taylor is expected to miss time due to a calf injury suffered early in the game against Philadelphia.
Insight: Andre Ellington has been carrying the workload, but Taylor has been usefull in the red zone. Marion Grice figures to inherit the backup role.
Vontae Davis, DB, IND10/27/2014 1:15:00 PM
Description: Colts cornerback Vontae Davis appears to have escaped a serious knee injury Sunday.
Insight: Coach Chuck Pagano said he didn't think it was serious after the MRI came back negative. That still doesn't mean he'll be ready to go Monday night against the Giants.
Jon Beason, LB, NYG10/27/2014 1:10:00 PM
Description: New York linebacker Jon Beason is out for the season and will need surgery on his right foot, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.
Insight: He missed most of the preseason due to a torn ligament and fractured bone in his toe and had only played in a few regular season games.
Brian Quick, WR, STL10/27/2014 1:05:00 PM
Description: Rams receiver Brian Quick's injury is a dislocated shoulder and torn rotator cuff, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: Quick is likely done for the season, if that's true. he had taken a giant leap forward this season and in the seven games he played, he had already set career highs for receptions (25), yards (375) and touchdowns (3).
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, MIN10/27/2014 11:14:00 AM
Description: Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson had his best receiving day of 2014, but left the stadium in a walking boot, according to a St. Paul Pioneer Press report.
Insight: He had six receptions for 86 yards, and one carry for 10 yards. he said it was just precautionary, but fantasy owners should watch him this week in practice.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, GBP10/27/2014 11:11:00 AM
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers appeared to tweak a hamstring late in Sunday's game, but he didn't miss any time.
Insight: Rodgers doesn't expect this to keep him out of the next game, which isn't until Week 10.
Nick Fairley, DT, DET10/27/2014 11:10:00 AM
Description: Detroit defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who injured a right knee in Sunday's game, will have an MRI Monday.
Insight: All early comments have called this one bad, so we aren't too hopeful at this point.
Jake Long, T, MIA10/27/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: Rams left tackle Jake Long apparently tore the right ACL in Sunday's game and has already been placed on injured reserve.
Insight: It's the same knee that he tore up last season and this could be the end for the four-time Pro Bowl lineman.
Jimmy Smith, CB, BAL10/27/2014 11:05:00 AM
Description: Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith, who left in the first quarter with a foot injury will have an MRI on Monday.
Insight: The Ravens secondary would take a hit if Smith is out for any length of time as he's one of the league's best cover men.
John Brown, WR, ARI10/27/2014 11:01:00 AM
Description: Third-round selection John Brown exploded in the final minutes with a 75-yard touchdown catch and run which turned out to bethe game-winner.
Insight: He's a small, fast receiver and beat the Eagles secondary. It was his first fantasy-worthy game since Week 2, but he seems to have a future.
Michael Floyd, WR, ARICold10/27/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Arizona wide receiver Michael Floyd wasn't part of the offensive explosion in this one against Philadelphia.
Insight: Floyd was targeted four times, but didn't catch a pass. Sunday was Larry Fitzgerald's day to be the guy.
Larry Fitzgerald, WR, ARI10/27/2014 10:58:00 AM
Description: Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has always "owned" the Eagles and Sunday was an extention of that.
Insight: Fitzgerald finished the day with seven receptions for 160 yards and a score, highlighted by an 80-yard touchdown catch and run.
Carson Palmer, QB, ARI10/27/2014 10:56:00 AM
Description: Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer wasn[t very good in this one, but two huge plays, pushed his numbers into the stratisphere.
Insight: Touchdown passes of 80-yard and 75-yards amounted for about half his total for the entire afternoon (20-of-42 for 329 yards and two scores).
Jordan Matthews, WR, PHI10/27/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews saw 11 targets in Sunday's game against Arizona.
Insight: Given that many opportunities, we would have liked to see more than six receptions for 47 yards. But then he's a rookie and that's what rookies do.
Andre Ellington, RB, ARI10/27/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington rushed for 71 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Ellington is usually also involved in the passing game, but he wasn't a big part in this one which limited his fantasy value.
Jeremy Maclin, WR, PHIHot10/27/2014 10:50:00 AM
Description: Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin was a huge factor in this one with a dozen receptions for 187 yards and two touchdowns.
Insight: Maclin has been Foles' favorite target for most of the season. In this one his usually low percentage of receptions was a solid 75 percent and he produced in a big way.
LeSean McCoy, RB, PHI10/27/2014 10:48:00 AM
Description: Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was given 21 carries and saw five targets, but only produced a combined 97 yards and didn't get into the end zone.
Insight: Not horrible, but not what we need from a top-three fantasy selection.
Jordan Cameron, TE, CLE10/27/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Browns tight end Jordan Cameron was held to three catches for 40 yards.
Insight: We keep thinking Cameron will do more and get disappointed. It's time to lower expectations.
Nick Foles, QB, PHI10/27/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Eagles quarterback Nick Foles threw the ball a stunning 62 times in a 24-20 loss to Arizona.
Insight: Foles is still struggling with turnovers and it looks bad after last season's 27-2 TD-to-interception ratio, but he's still putting up decent fantasy numbers. Sunday he threw for 411 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions.
Andrew Hawkins, WR, CLE10/27/2014 10:44:00 AM
Description: In a game with very little offense, Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins was one of the few fantasy-worthy players.
Insight: Hawkins caught seven of nine balls for 88 yards and a touchdown. That's two double-digit fantasy totals back-to-back.
Brian Hoyer, QB, PIT10/27/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer threw for 275 yards and a touchdown without a turnover.
Insight: Hoyer wasn't great, but fortunately he was playing the one team that "wasn't great" can still get you a win and keep your job. he should hold off the "Johnny Football Era" for another week.
Ben Tate, RB, CLE10/27/2014 10:37:00 AM
Description: Browns running back Ben Tate salvaged an ugly performance with alate touchdown run.
Insight: Tate totaled 26 yards on 15 carries and caught one ball for eight yards. Considering he had minus five yards on his first five carries to finish with nine fantasy points is probably a miracle.
Andre Holmes, WR, OAK10/27/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Raiders receiver Andre Holmes caught five balls for 69 yards and a late garbage-time touchdown.
Insight: Holmes has been inconsistent, like his rookie quarterback, but a late touchdown counts as much as any other and his fantasy owners will take the double-digit production.
James Jones, WR, OAK10/27/2014 10:34:00 AM
Description: Raiders receiver James Jones was targeted a team-high 11 times.
Insight: Jones caught six for 62 yards. He's not been consistent this season, but with a rookie quarterback what did you expect?
Derek Carr, QB, OAK10/27/2014 10:33:00 AM
Description: For most of the game Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr's offense could only produce a couple of field goals.
Insight: But Carr kept throwing and a late touchdown pass and 54 attempts, many in garbage time, helped him produce decent fantasy totals - 328 yards and a touchdowns against two interceptions.
Darren McFadden, RB, OAK10/27/2014 10:31:00 AM
Description: Raiders running back Darren McFadden rushed 12 times for 59 yards and caught four for 26 yards.
Insight: Not pretty, but at least he's getting the opportunities. Maurice Jones-Drew ran six times for eight yards. He's an emergency fill-in ... at best.
Heath Miller, TE, PITHot10/27/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Steelers tight end Heath Miller caught seven of eight targets for for 112 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: The Steelers were wearing their throwback uniforms (really ugly, sorry) so we shouldn't be surprised they resurrected Miller too. Miller is far too inconsistent for fantasy owners to start on a regular basis.
Martavis Bryant, WR, PITHot10/27/2014 10:23:00 AM
Description: Steelers rookie wideout Martavis Bryant has been active for two games and has three touchdown catches.
Insight: Against the Colts he caught five for 83 yards and two touchdowns. Bryant has shown elite speed in running by most cornerbacks and should become the guy opposite Antonio Brown. If he's available in your league he should be claimed.
Antonio Brown, WR, PITHot10/27/2014 10:22:00 AM
Description: Steelers receiver Antonio Brown continued his streak of at least five catches, hauling in 10 of 13 targets for 133 yards and two scores.
Insight: Brown's fantasy owners were probable unhappy when Ben Roethlisberger's first two touchdown passes went to wideouts other than Brown, but "Big Ben" didn't forget his No. 1 guy and hit him for two scores in the second quarter.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, PITHot10/27/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger can now say he's done something no other quarterback in the history of the NFL has done.
Insight: Big Ben can say "I've thrown for 500 yards in a game two times in my career." Sunday he was 40-of-49 for 522 yards and six touchdowns. Simply amazing!
Le'Veon Bell, RB, PITHot10/27/2014 10:19:00 AM
Description: Agasinst Indianapolis Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell continued to show the versatility that makes him a threat in every game.
Insight: Bell didn't score but totaled 148 yards from scrimmage. It's a tossup between Bell and Matt Forte for the most versatile back in the NFL.
Hakeem Nicks, WR, INDCold10/27/2014 10:17:00 AM
Description: Colts wideout Hakeem Nicks caught just one of six targets for 27 yards.
Insight: Nicks should be able to see the handwriting on the wall. He's fallen well down the depth chart and isn't going to get many opportunities. Fantasy owners can safely drop him, if thay haven't already.
Donte Moncrief, WR, INDHot10/27/2014 10:13:00 AM
Description: With Colts starter Reggie Wayne (elbow) missing Week 8, rookie Donte Moncrief stepped up and produced.
Insight: Moncrief was way ahead veteran Hakeem Nicks as a No. 2 option. He caught seven balls for 113 yards and a touchdown and looked as fast as anyone on the field. By next season he'll be starting opposite Hilton on a regular basis.
Andrew Luck, QB, INDHot10/27/2014 10:11:00 AM
Description: Colts QB Andrew Luck was 26-for-45 for 400 yards and three touchdowns against Pittsburgh.
Insight: Luck did throw two interceptions but continued his stellar season with another 300-plus passing day as the Colts. Unfortunately, on this day, he was the second best quarterback on the field.
T.Y. Hilton, WR, INDHot10/27/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton continues to produce and the Andrew Luck to Hilton combination is becoming one of the league's best.
Insight: Hilton had six catches for 155 yards and a score. As long as Luck is under center, Hilton is a must start.
Ahmad Bradshaw, RB, IND10/27/2014 10:07:00 AM
Description: Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw became a good fantasy option with Trent Richardson likely sideline by a hamstring injury.
Insight: Bradhaw combined for 87 yards and a touchdown, despite seeing just six carries. The Colts abandoned the run early after falling behind 21-3 in the second quarter or Bradshaw would have been a much better option.
Kenny Stills, WR, NOS10/27/2014 10:05:00 AM
Description: Saints receiver Kenny Stills caught all four targets for 57 yards Sunday night against Green Bay.
Insight: Rookie wide receiver Brandin Cooks is the third receiver with Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham still get the bulk of the targets from Drew Brees which limits Stills' abilityt to produce on a consistent basis. We like his long-term outlook, but that might not become reailty until Colston retires.
Marques Colston, WR, NOS10/27/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston wasn't very active against Green Bay, catching four balls for 49 yards.
Insight: Colston had six catches for 111 yards on 10 targets in Week 7, but took a back seat to Brandin Cooks and even Kenny Stills in this one. As the young receivers grow, Colston's production is likely to be more and more inconsistent.
Jimmy Graham, TE, NOS10/27/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is obviously not 100 percent and it shows up particularly when he's trying to block.
Insight: Graham was still productive in the passing game catching five balls for 59 yards and a score. Fantasy owners can't be happy that backup tight end Josh Hill scored a late touchdown instead of Graham.
Brandin Cooks, WR, NOSHot10/27/2014 9:58:00 AM
Description: Saints rookie wideout Brandin Cooks was clearly Brees' favorite target Sunday night against Green Bay.
Insight: Cooks caught six of seven targets for 94 yards and a touchdown, but the one he dropped would have been a big gainer as well. On a team with Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham, to be Brees' No. 1 target, says a lot.
Travaris Cadet, RB, NOS10/27/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Saints running back Travaris Cadet was the backup to Mark Ingram, but was only used as a receiver,
Insight: Cadet rushed just one time for seven yards, but was targeted five times and caught four for 40 yards. His minimal value will be reduced even more when the injured running backs (Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas) return to the lineup.
Drew Brees, QB, NOS10/27/2014 9:52:00 AM
Description: Saints quarterback Drew Brees produced like we expect him to in this battle against Aaron Rodgers.
Insight: Brees threw for 311 yards and three scores without a turnover. In typical Brees fashion he completed passes to nine different receivers.
Mark Ingram, RB, NOSHot10/27/2014 9:46:00 AM
Description: Saints running back Mark Ingram was the primary guy out of the backfield with Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas sidelined by injury and produced big numbers for fantasy owners.
Insight: Ingram posted 172 yards and a score on 24 carries. It was a great game, but as soon as the injured guys return this will once again be a shared situation.
Davante Adams, WR, GBP10/27/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: Packers rookie receiver Davante Adams was targeted a team-high nine times and caught seven for 75 yards.
Insight: Adams was a big part of the offense as the No. 3 wideout ahead of Jarrett Boykin. He's still growing, but with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb his upside is severely limited.
Randall Cobb, WR, GBPHot10/27/2014 9:30:00 AM
Description: Green Bay wideout Randall Cobb put up a 70-yard touchdown catch and run on the first series.
Insight: Cobb finished the day with 126 yards and the score on five receptions. Jordy Nelson has been the better of the two receivers for most of the season, but the Saints made an effort to take Nelson out of this game. Cobb has scored in five straight and seven out of eight.
Jordy Nelson, WR, GBP10/27/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: You would think when Aaron Rodgers throws for 418 yards that receiver Jordy Nelson would get his share, but it didn't happen.
Insight: Nelson caught just three of five targets for 25 yards. It was obvious the Saints weren't going to let Nelson beat them. Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and Eddie Lacy did the heavy lifting.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, GBP10/27/2014 9:23:00 AM
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers put up the yards, but threw just one touchdown against two interceptions.
Insight: Rodgers had been spoiling fantasy owners with at least three scores and no interceptions a game for the past four contests. He did throw for a season-high 418 yards.
Eddie Lacy, RB, GBP10/27/2014 9:20:00 AM
Description: Packers running back Eddie Lacy had 13 carries for 59 yards, but for a change was a big factor in the passing game.
Insight: Lacy caught eight of nine targets for 123 yards. Although he didn't get into the end zone, his combined 182 yards made him a great fantasy play. Now if he can just do it a couple of times in a row.
Brandon LaFell, WR, NEP10/26/2014 7:36:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell had a big day against the Bears.
Insight: He caught 11 balls for 124 yards and a score. LaFell should now be considered a borderline WR2, as the season progresses.
Rob Gronkowski, TE, NEP10/26/2014 7:34:00 PM
Description: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski broke out on Sunday.
Insight: He had nine receptions for 149 yards, and three touchdowns. Gronkowski is fully healthy, and playing great football.
Shane Vereen, RB, NEP10/26/2014 7:32:00 PM
Description: New England running back Shane Vereen did not produce on Sunday.
Insight: He had five carries for 22 yards and three catches for 23 yards. Vereen seems to be a boom-or-bust option each week, moving forward.
Jonas Gray, RB, NEP10/26/2014 7:31:00 PM
Description: Patriots running back Jonas Gray rushed for 86 yards on 17 carries.
Insight: This could have been a product of New England's blowout win. Owners should still consider Gray an RB3 option.
Khiry Robinson, RB, NOS10/26/2014 7:29:00 PM
Description: Saints running back Khiry Robinson is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers due to a forearm injury.
Insight: Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet will get all the work out of the New Orleans backfield against the 31st ranked rush defense versus Green Bay.
Tom Brady, QB, NEP10/26/2014 7:27:00 PM
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was unstoppable in Sunday's win over Chicago.
Insight: He was 30-of-35 for 354 yards and five touchdowns. Brady is clearly back to being a QB1.
Pierre Thomas, RB, NOS10/26/2014 7:27:00 PM
Description: Saints running back Pierre Thomas (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday night against Green Bay.
Insight: Khiry Robinson is also out leaving the workload to Mark Ingram and Tarvaris Cadet.
James Starks, RB, GBP10/26/2014 7:26:00 PM
Description: Packers running back James Starks (ankle) is active.
Insight: With Eddie Lacy as the starter, Starks has a limited upside, but he is getting steady work.
Brandon Marshall, WR, CHI10/26/2014 7:26:00 PM
Description: Bears wideout Brandon Marshall was not a factor in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Insight: He had only three catches for 35 yards, frustrating fantasy owners yet again. As of now, consider Marshall a WR2.
Alshon Jeffery, WR, CHI10/26/2014 7:24:00 PM
Description: Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery scored his third touchdown of the season.
Insight: He managed five catches for 59 yards, and is really more of a WR2, at this point in time.
Martellus Bennett, TE, CHI10/26/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett led the team in receiving druing Week 8's loss to New England.
Insight: He had six receptions for 95 yards and a score. It was Bennett's first touchdown since Week 3, a nice sight for owners.
Matt Forte, RB, CHIHot10/26/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte had another productive day on Sunday.
Insight: He had 114 rushing yards on 19 carries, along with 54 receiving yards on six catches. Forte also caught a touchdown, and is clearly an RB1 for the rest of the season.
Jay Cutler, QB, CHI10/26/2014 7:20:00 PM
Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had a decent fantasy-day, despite being blown out 51-23, on Sunday.
Insight: Cutler was 20-of-30 for 227 yards, three touchdowns, one interception, and one fumble lost. He will continue to be a borderline QB1 for 2014.
Clay Harbor, TE, JAC10/26/2014 7:17:00 PM
Description: Jaguars tight end Clay Harbor had pnly 27 yards in Week 8.
Insight: Harbor had two catches on four targets, and is not a recommended fantasy-play moving forward.
Cecil Shorts III, WR, JAC10/26/2014 7:15:00 PM
Description: Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts had 41 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He did so on three receptions, and with him playing for a lousy team, Shorts' numbers will continue to be inconsistent.
Allen Robinson, WR, JAC10/26/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Jaguars rookie receiver Allen Robinson led the team in receiving during Week 8.
Insight: Robinson had a nice afternoon catching 5 balls for 82 yards and a touchdown. He accumulated 10 targets as well, but will remain a WR4/5 option.
Denard Robinson, WR, JACHot10/26/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: Jaguars running back Denard Robinson conitued hot play on Sunday.
Insight: He rushed for 108 yards on 18 carries, along with 10 yards on one catch. Robinson is developing into a nice RB2 option.
Blake Bortles, QB, JAC10/26/2014 7:10:00 PM
Description: Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 221 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions on Sunday.
Insight: He continues to be inconsistent, and we simply cannot recommend him to owners, until we see more.
Charles Clay, FB/TE, MIA10/26/2014 7:08:00 PM
Description: Dolphins tight end Charles Clay had a day to forget Sunday against the jaguars.
Insight: he had only one reception for one yard, and is no more than a TE2 moving forward.
Mike Wallace, WR, MIA10/26/2014 7:07:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace led the team in receiving during Week 8's win.
Insight: He had two catches for 59 yards, on seven targets. Although this was not Wallace's best performance of the season, he will continue to be a good option for fantasy owners.
Lamar Miller, RB, MIA10/26/2014 7:05:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller had a solid afternoon.
Insight: He had 14 carries for 78 yards, and three catches for 21 yards. Miller will continue to be a solid RB2 option.
Ryan Tannehill, QB, MIA10/26/2014 7:04:00 PM
Description: Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for 196 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.
Insight: Tannehill is simply a QB2, and if owners have better options, a better quarterback is recommended.
Jermaine Gresham, TE, CIN10/26/2014 7:01:00 PM
Description: Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham totaled 34 yards in Sunday's win.
Insight: He did so on four catches, but will continue to be a low-end TE2.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, CIN10/26/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu had another productive day with A.J. Green sidelined.
Insight: He had five receptions for 125 yards, on nine targets. Even when Green returns, Sanu will still be a valuable fantasy player, as we move forward.
Patrick Peterson, CB, ARI10/26/2014 6:59:00 PM
Description: Cardinals top cornerback, Patrick Peterson has left the game with a concussion.
Insight: Peterson is already an excellent cornerback and dangerous punt returner, but he can't stop Jeremy Maclin from the bench and that's where he'll be stuck for the rest of the game.
Giovani Bernard, RB, CIN10/26/2014 6:58:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard scored a touchdown before leaving the game with a hip innjury.
Insight: The score saved his fanatsy-day, as he had only 45 yards on 16 carries, along with two catches for two yards. As long as he is able to suit up for Week 9, Bernard will maintain his borderline RB1 status.
Andy Dalton, QB, CIN10/26/2014 6:55:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton threw for 266 yards in Sunday's win over Baltimore.
Insight: He had a one-yard rushing touchdown, along with an interception and a fumble lost. Dalton is no more than a QB2 for the rest of 2014.
Steve Smith Sr, WR, BAL10/26/2014 6:53:00 PM
Description: Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. managed only 35 receiving yards on Sunday.
Insight: He had three receptions, but will look to get back on track in Week 9. Smith is still a solid WR2 play.
Lorenzo Taliaferro, RB, BAL10/26/2014 6:51:00 PM
Description: Ravens tailback Lorenzo Taliaferro scored two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.
Insight: He had seven carries for 27 yards, and also led the team in receiving, with two catches for 42 yards. Taliaferro will remain a touchdown-dependent fantasy-play.
Justin Forsett, RB, BAL10/26/2014 6:49:00 PM
Description: Ravens running back Justin Forsett rushed for 68 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He did so on 17 carries, and also chipped in three receptions for 17 yards. Forsett has been a pleasant surprise this season, and will remain an RB2.
Joe Flacco, QB, BAL10/26/2014 6:48:00 PM
Description: Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was completely ineffective in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.
Insight: After throwing for a total of seven touchdowns over the previous two weeks, Flacco threw for only 195 yards, no scores, and two interceptions during Week 8. Flacco will remain a borderline QB1, moving forward.
Greg Olsen, TE, CAR10/26/2014 6:44:00 PM
Description: Panthers tight end Greg Olsen has non-existent in Sunday's loss to Seattle.
Insight: He had only one catch for 16 yards, but owners should not worry, as Olsen will remain a solid TE1, moving forward.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR10/26/2014 6:42:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin caught four passes for a team-high 94 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He failed to find the end zone, but it was another solid afternoon for the Panthers' top receiving threat.
Jonathan Stewart, RB, CAR10/26/2014 6:40:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart had a solidouting against the Seahawks.
Insight: He had 16 carries for 79 yards, as well as three catches for 15 yards. With Deangelo Williams expected back soon, Stewart's value will plummet, however.
Cam Newton, QB, CAR10/26/2014 6:38:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton conitued his lousy season during Sunday loss to Seattle.
Insight: He was 12-of-22 for 171 yards, no touchdowns, one interception, and one fumble lost. Newton did contribute 12 carries, but for only 24 yards. Newton, as of right now, is a low-end QB2.
Doug Baldwin, WR, SEA10/26/2014 6:35:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin led Seattle in receiving during Week 8.
Insight: He had six catches for 61 yards, on eight targets, and clearly looks like Seattle's top receiving threat.
Marshawn Lynch, RB, SEA10/26/2014 6:33:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had a subpar day on Sunday.
Insight: He had 14 carries for 62 yards, and was unable to find the end zone. Lynch has failed to reach the 100-yard plateau on the ground in each game since Week 1.
Russell Wilson, QB, SEA10/26/2014 6:31:00 PM
Description: Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 199 yards and rushed for 35 yards in Sunday's win over Carolina.
Insight: He threw one touchdown, as well as an interception, and led the Seahawks to a game-winning, fourth-quarter touchdown. It wasn't a great fantasy day for Wilson, but he remains a solid QB1.
Vincent Jackson, WR, TAM10/26/2014 6:28:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a day to forget on Sunday.
Insight: He had only one catch for 13 yards, as his inconsistent play continues. Playing on a team like Tampa Bay only hurts Jackson's value, as owners will hope he is dealt by Tuesday's trade deadline.
Mike Evans, WR, TAM10/26/2014 6:25:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans totaled 78 yards in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.
Insight: He caught four passes, on seven targets, and led the team in receiving. Consider Evans a WR3, moving forward.
Mike Glennon, QB, TAM10/26/2014 6:23:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay QB Mike Glennon was ineffective during Week 8's loss to the Vikings.
Insight: He threw for only 171 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Glennon is nothing more than a low-end QB2 for the rest of 2014.
Greg Jennings, WR, MIN10/26/2014 6:21:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings scored his second touchdown of the season, during Sunday's win.
Insight: He will never produce the way he did in Green Bay, as Jennings had only three catches for 38 yards. He is a WR4 at best.
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, MIN10/26/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson had his best receiving day of 2014.
Insight: He had six receptions for 86 yards, and one carry for 10 yards. However, Patterson's inconsistent play will result in him being a low-end WR3.
Jerick McKinnon, RB, MIN10/26/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon had another nice outing during Sunday's overtime victory over Tampa Bay.
Insight: He racked up 83 yards on 16 carries, and is cemented as an RB2, heading into next week.
Teddy Bridgewater, QB, MIN10/26/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had arguably his best start as a pro.
Insight: He was 24-of-42 for 241 yards and one touchdown, but will remain a QB2 for the foreseeable future.
Delanie Walker, TE, TEN10/26/2014 6:14:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker hauled in his fourth touchdown of 2014.
Insight: He had not caught a touchdown since Week 4, so it was nice for owners to see him get back into the end zone. Walker will continue to be a borderlin TE1.
Justin Hunter, WR, TEN10/26/2014 6:12:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Justin Hunter scored a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Houston.
Insight: It was his second touchdown of the season, but owners should expect inconsistent production for the rest of 2014.
Kendall Wright, WR, TEN10/26/2014 6:11:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright manged three catches for 53 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He had five targets, and with Zach Mettenberger under center, Wright is nore than a WR3.
Nate Washington, WR, TEN10/26/2014 6:10:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Nate Washington led the team in receiving during Week 8's loss to the Texans.
Insight: He totaled four catches for 68 yards, on only four targets. Washington does not hold much fantasy appeal as the season moves on.
Bishop Sankey, RB, TEN10/26/2014 6:08:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey had only 35 rushing yards on Sunday.
Insight: He did so on nine carries, and even though Shonn Greene had only one carry for one yard, Sankey has not been able to produce for owners in 2014. Consider him an RB3, at best.
Zach Mettenberger, QB, TEN10/26/2014 6:06:00 PM
Description: Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger had a decent line in his first-career NFL start.
Insight: He was 27-of-41 for 299 yards and two touchdowns, but also threw an interception and lost a fumble. Mettenberger is a low-end QB2 for the duration of the season.
Andre Johnson, WR, HOU10/26/2014 6:04:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson totaled 12 targets during Week 8.
Insight: He caught seven of them for 55 yards, but owners would like him to score some more touchdowns, as he has only one in 2014.
DeAndre Hopkins, WR, HOU10/26/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins led the team in receiving on Sunday.
Insight: On 11 targets, Hopkins had five catches for 95 yards, but was unable to find the end zone. He will be a WR3, moving forward.
Arian Foster, RB, HOUHot10/26/2014 6:01:00 PM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster had another big game, Sunday against the Titans.
Insight: He rushed for 151 yards, his fourth-consecutive 100-yard rushing game, and had two touchdowns on the ground as well. Foster also chipped in with four catches for 22 yards, and additional score. He is one of the best halfbacks in football right now.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, HOU10/26/2014 5:59:00 PM
Description: Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had a decent afternoon against Tennessee.
Insight: He threw for 227 yards and a score, but should be considered a QB2 the rest of the season.
Travis Kelce, TE, KAN10/26/2014 5:57:00 PM
Description: Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce had a decent afternoon against the Rams.
Insight: He had four receptions for 45 yards, on six targets. Kelce has shown glimpses of stardom, but ultimately is a TE2, as the season continues to progress.
Dwayne Bowe, WR, KAN10/26/2014 5:56:00 PM
Description: Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe led the team in receiving duriong Sunday's win over the Rams.
Insight: He caught all six targets for 64 yards, but did not find the end zone. Bowe is no more than a WR3.
Jamaal Charles, RB, KAN10/26/2014 5:55:00 PM
Description: Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles had a solid afternoon for fantasy owners.
Insight: He rushed the ball 13 times for 73 yards and two touchdowns, as well as hauling in four passes for an additional 44 yards. Kniles Davis took some production away from Charles, with 49 rushing yards and a touchdown as well. Charles will be a top-five back for the rest of the season.
Alex Smith, QB, KAN10/26/2014 5:52:00 PM
Description: Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith's managed the Chiefs to victory on Sunday.
Insight: He was 24-of-28 for 226, but had no touchdowns, and one fumble lost. Smith did contribute 24 rushing yards, but will be no more than a QB2 moving forward.
Lance Kendricks, TE, STL10/26/2014 5:51:00 PM
Description: Rams tight end Lance Kendricks caught a touchdown for the third-consecutive game.
Insight: He had only one catch for one yard, and the touchdown, and St Louis' other tight end Jared Cook did not contribute much as well, with one reception for 11 yards. Neither player is a recommended play.
Kenny Britt, WR, STL10/26/2014 5:47:00 PM
Description: Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt led the team in receiving during Sunday's loss to Kansas City.
Insight: Britt had only two catches for 52 yards, as no Rams' player was able to breakout against the Chief's tough defense. Britt is a WR4, at best.
Tre Mason, RB, STL10/26/2014 5:46:00 PM
Description: Rams running back Tre Mason did not contribute much on Sunday.
Insight: After breaking out for 85 yards and a touchdown during Week 7, Mason had only seven carries for 32 yards, and one catch for one yard. The tailback situation in St. Louis continues to be extremely cloudy, making it a tough call for fantasy owners every week.
Austin Davis, QB, STL10/26/2014 5:43:00 PM
Description: Rams quarterback Austin Davis was unable to continue his magic during Week 8 against the Chiefs.
Insight: After leading St. Louis to an opening-drive score. Davis was ineffective the rest of the afternoon. He finished the day 15-of-25 for 160 yards, one touchdown and one interception, and was also sacked a total of seven times. Davis is no more than a QB2.
Eric Decker, WR, NYJ10/26/2014 5:39:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker hauled in seven passes during Sundays's loss to Buffalo.
Insight: He had only 40 yards however, but did manage 11 targets. There is no denying Decker's talent, but with him being on such a lousy team, he should be considered a WR3.
Jace Amaro, TE, NYJ10/26/2014 5:38:00 PM
Description: Jets tight end Jace Amaro led the team in receing with 51 yards, on Sunday.
Insight: He had five catches on all five targets, and will be a TE2 moving forward.
Percy Harvin, WR, NYJ10/26/2014 5:36:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Percy Harvin totaled seven touches in his team-debut.
Insight: He had three catches for 22 yards and four carries for 28 yards. Harvin should see more touches than he did in Seattle, but his production will continue to remain hit-or-miss.
Chris Ivory, RB, NYJ10/26/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory was unable to buildoff his impressive Week 7 performance.
Insight: After 107 yards and a touchdown last week, Ivory rushed for only 43 yards on Sunday. Chris Johnson was not any better, totaling only three carries for seven yards. Ivory is clearly the lead dog in New York.
Michael Vick, QB, NYJ10/26/2014 5:30:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick came in relief of a benched Geno Smith, and totaled 153 passing yards and 69 rushing yards.
Insight: Vick also threw an interception and fumbled the ball four times (lost two), as turnovers continue to haunt him. Heading into Week 9, both Smith and Vick will hav a chance to start under center.
Sammy Watkins, WR, BUF10/26/2014 5:27:00 PM
Description: Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins had a nice afternoon, but made a big rookie mistake on Sunday.
Insight: Watkins had three catches for 157 yards and one touchdown, but fantasy owners will be talking about his 84-yard reception in the second quarter, as he thought he had a walk-in score. However, Watkins was caught from behind, leading to a two-yard Frank Summers touchdown-run.
Bryce Brown, RB, BUF10/26/2014 5:25:00 PM
Description: Bills backup running back Bryce Brown managed only seven carries for 15 yards in Sunday's win over the Jets.
Insight: He was clearly the backup tailback to Anthony Dixon, and unless something drastic changes, Brown will not hold any fantasy value.
Anthony Dixon, RB, BUF10/26/2014 5:23:00 PM
Description: Bills running back Anthony Dixon handled the majority of the running back workload on Sunday.
Insight: He had 22 carries, but produced only 44 yards, and did not contribute in the receiving game. Dixon is no more than an RB3, heading into Week 9.
Kyle Orton, QB, BUF10/26/2014 5:21:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback Kyle Orton played his best game as a member of Buffalo, during Sunday's win against the Jets.
Insight: He was 10-of-17 for 238 yards and an impressive four touchdowns. Orton has vaulted himself to a borderline QB1, moving forward.
Kyle Fuller, CB, CHI10/26/2014 3:24:00 PM
Description: Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller left Sunday's game after aggravating his hip injury.
Insight: He went down in the first half and is technically questionable to return, but Fuller has yet to see the field in the second half. Losing him for an extended period time would be a huge blow to Chicago's defense.
Doug Martin, RB, TAM10/26/2014 3:18:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin was forced out of Sunday's contest against the Vikings.
Insight: He left with an ankle injury during the third quarter, and had his helmet offf and ankle wrapped. It looks like Martin is done for the day after posting 27 yards on 10 carries. Bobby Rainey will handle the halfback duties, with Martin out.
Robert Woods, WR, BUF10/26/2014 3:15:00 PM
Description: Bills receiver Robert Woods left Sunday's game against the Jets with an apparent back injury.
Insight: He went into the locker room towards the end of the second quarter, and Buffalo is calling his return questionable. Before he went down, Woods had three receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown.
Trent Richardson, RB, IND10/26/2014 3:13:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson (hamstring) is surprisingly active Sunday against the Steelers.
Insight: He was unable to practice all week, and most reports indicated Richardson would sit out Week 8. However, he will take the field, but will most likely be on a snap count, making him an RB3 at best. Ahmad Bradshaw is still in line for a heavy workload.
Torrey Smith, WR, BAL10/26/2014 2:56:00 PM
Description: Ravens wideout Torrey Smith is being checked out for a concussion.
Insight: Smith hasn't put up the yardage this season, with a game-high of 81, but he has scored four times in the past four games heading into today versus Cincinnati.
Darren Sproles, RB, PHI10/26/2014 2:44:00 PM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles (slight MCL tear in his left knee) was hoping to get back for the Cardinals game, but he's been declared inactive.
Insight: Sproles' absence will yield time for Chris Polk, though he won't be fantasy worthy.
Jimmy Smith, CB, BAL10/26/2014 2:10:00 PM
Description: Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith left in the first quarter with a foot injury and is doubtful to return.
Insight: At least the Ravens secondary minus Smith doesn't have to face A.J. Green so they may survive.
Luke Joeckel, OT, JAC10/26/2014 2:09:00 PM
Description: Jaguars tackle Luke Joeckel left Sunday game against Miami with an apparent concussion and isn't expected to return.
Insight: The Jaguars will now have an undrafted rooke guarding Blake Bortles blind side - Josh Wells.
Brian Quick, WR, STL10/26/2014 2:05:00 PM
Description: Rams receiver Brian Quick left Sunday's game with a left shoulder/arm injury.
Insight: Quick had just the one catch for 10 yards on the play which he was injured.
Michael Vick, QB, NYJ10/26/2014 1:43:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick was thrusted into action Sunday, after Geno Smith was benched.
Insight: Smith threw three interceptions in the first quarter, giving Vick the opportunity to be the Jets' starting quarterback, moving forward.
Geno Smith, QB, NYJ10/26/2014 1:41:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was benched in the first quarter, in favor of Michael Vick.
Insight: Coach Rex Ryan had no choice as Smith was 2-for-8 for five yards and a dreadful three interceptions. With the Jets playoff hopes all but lost, Smith could still find himself under center, as the season progresses.
Roddy White, WR, ATL10/26/2014 1:09:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White led his team in targets, but it was just six.
Insight: He caught five for a team-high 66 yards, but he couldn't find the end zone. The two touchdown passes were scored by Devonta Freeman and Bear Pascoe. That couldn't have helped many fantasy owners.
Julio Jones, WR, ATL10/26/2014 1:08:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones was limited to just 58 yards on four catches.
Insight: That won't make any of his fantasy owners happy. He was tied with Roddy White for targets with six, but we like to see him targeted 10 times or more per game.
Steven Jackson, RB, ATL10/26/2014 1:05:00 PM
Description: Falcons running back Steven Jackson got off to a quick start, but like his team he failed in the second 30 minutes to help his team of fantasy owners.
Insight: Still, he finished with 60 yards and a touchdown for double-digits. it's just the third time this season he's scored 10 points or more.
Matt Ryan, QB, ATL10/26/2014 1:02:00 PM
Description: Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was impreesive in the first half against the Lions but disappeared after the break and finished with 228 yards, two scores and one interception.
Insight: Since he was 14-of-17 for 160 yards and both scores in the first half, the second 30 minutes must have been torture for his fantasy owners.
Golden Tate, WR, DETHot10/26/2014 1:00:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Golden Tate was a must-start in Week 8 with Calvin Johnson sidelined.
Insight: Tate was Matthew Stafford's No. 1 target once again. Tate caught seven of 15 targets for 151 yards and a touchdown.
Theo Riddick, RB, DETHot10/26/2014 12:58:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Theo Riddick (hamstring) returned to play well in Week 8.
Insight: After missing Week 7 due to a hamstring injury, Riddick was Matthews Stafford's primary backfield receiver catching eight balls for 74 yards and a touchdown.
Joique Bell, RB, DET10/26/2014 12:57:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Joique Bell was expected to have a big day against Atlanta with Reggie Bush inactive.
Insight: It didn't happen. Bell rushed for just 39 yards and Theo Riddick did the bulk of the receiving out of the backfield. Ugh!
