22 October 2017NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Jaguars do not expect Leonard Fournette (ankle) to play in Week 7 against the Colts. Fournette's ankle injury is not believed to be serious, but he has battled ankle problems since LSU. With a bye on deck in Week 8, it makes sense for the Jaguars to be as cautious as possible with their offensive centerpiece, particularly in a winnable game against the Colts. Ivory should be locked into 18-plus touches against Indy. Corey Grant ...
21 October 2017Rob Kelley (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game with the Eagles. Kelley didn't have any setbacks in practice this week and is expected to play. Sidelined since Week 4, Kelley is unlikely to see a full workload in his return. The Redskins are expected to use a three-back committee with Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson
21 October 2017Redskins CB Josh Norman (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Eagles. Norman was able to get in two limited practices this week but sat out Saturday's practice. Quinton Dunbar is expected to start in his place. In addition to Norman, OL Tyler Catalina (concussion) and OL Ty Nsekhe (abdomen) have also been ruled out for the Redskins.
20 October 2017NFL suspended RB Marshawn Lynch one game for unsportsmanlike conduct. The suspension comes after Lynch was ejected for shoving a referee in Thursday's night game. Lynch will miss Week 8 if he doesn't appeal. It's the latest in what's been a rough month for Lynch. The Raiders should go with a committee with Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington against Buffalo.
20 October 2017ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Packers are "holding out hope" Aaron Rodgers (collarbone, IR) can return Week 15 against the Panthers. Rodgers is out for at least the next eight games, but the Packers think there's a chance he'll be back when first eligible. It's an aggressive timetable that sounds like a best-case scenario. Rodgers missed only seven games with a 2013 collarbone fracture. The Packers will need to stay in playoff contention for Rodgers to retu ...
20 October 2017Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Dede Westbrook (core muscle surgery, IR) is "on track" to return in Week 9. Westbrook was cleared to catch passes last week and has been running on the side at practice. Barring setbacks, he should be back when first eligible Week 9 against the Bengals. Westbrook is expected to have an immediate role, and looks likely to make a second-half impact. With Jacksonville not getting much from Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee, Westbrook cou ...
20 October 2017The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the NFL is "considering all options" for discipline with Marshawn Lynch. Lynch was ejected for leaving the sidelines and shoving a referee on Thursday night. He's facing fines in excess of $60,000 and could potentially miss Week 8 against Buffalo. There should be a decision on Lynch's status early next week. DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard would form a committee if Lynch is forced to sit.
20 October 2017Keenan Allen (questionable, shoulder) is "very hopeful" of playing against the Broncos in Week 7. Allen fell on his shoulder at Thursday's practice and was listed as a DNP on Friday, casting doubt on his status for Week 7. However, Allen feels he can play through it, so perhaps will see him out there on Sunday. With the Chargers kicking off at 4:25 PM ET, Allen owners need to have a backup plan in place.
20 October 2017Willie Snead (hamstring) is questionable for Week 7 against the Packers. He should be ready to roll after getting in a limited week of practice. Snead played just 27.3 percent of the Saints' snaps in his season debut last week, but should play a much bigger role against the Packers.
20 October 2017Chris Hogan (ribs) wasn't listed on the Patriots' final injury report for Week 7 against the Falcons. Hogan took a hard hit to the ribs in last week's win over the Jets but played through it. He returned to a full practice on Friday after being limited on both Wednesday and Thursday. Hogan is RotoPat's No. 10 receiver for Week 7.
20 October 2017Packers placed Aaron Rodgers (broken right collarbone) on injured reserve. He'll miss at least the next eight weeks. The Packers have yet to rule Rodgers out for the season, so there's a chance he could return in Week 15. Brett Hundley will take over as the starter, but is a downgade to the entire pass offense. The Packers should become a more run heavy team with Rodgers sidelined.
20 October 2017Terrance West (calf) has been ruled out for Week 7. West hasn't practiced since Week 5 and was never expected to play. The Ravens will continue to go with a committee of Alex Collins and Buck Allen. West isn't a lock to regain his starting role when healthy.
20 October 2017Keenan Allen (shoulder) is questionable for Week 7 against the Broncos. Allen was downgraded to DNP at Friday's practice, which is obviously concerning after being a late add to the injury report this week. He now appears to be on the wrong side of questionable for Sunday's 4:25 PM ET start in Los Angeles. Allen's absence would open up more looks for Tyrell Williams and Hunter Henry, though it's not an ideal matchup against Denver's vaunted "no-fly zone" secon ...
20 October 2017Melvin Gordon (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Broncos. There hasn't been concern over Gordon despite a limited practice week. He should be fine for Sunday, but there's a chance his workload is scaled back. Gordon is Rotoworld's No. 8 running back this wwek.
20 October 2017DeVante Parker (ankle) is doubtful for Week 7 against the Jets. Parker is likely to miss his second straight game after suffering a sprained ankle against the Falcons in Week 5. Jarvis Landry drew 14 targets with Parker sidelined last week and should again be a target hog Sunday versus the Jets.
20 October 2017Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he expects Rob Kelley (ankle) to start against the Eagles on Monday Night Football. Kelley is back after missing Week 6 with an ankle injury. Though it appears Kelley will draw the start, Gruden said he expects all of the Redskins' running backs to be involved throughout the game including rookie Samaje Perine and pass-catcher Chris Thompson. Fat Rob will be a no-frills RB3 for Monday night's divisional showdown.
20 October 2017Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (concussion) returned to a full practice on Friday. He's still listed as questionable, but this is a good sign for Pouncey's availability against the Jets. Pouncey is a true difference maker in the trenches.
20 October 2017The NFL insisted it is not trying to reach a settlement with Ezekiel Elliott regarding his delayed six-game suspension. The Dallas Morning News reported Elliott's camp and the league "discussed the possibility of a settlement," but it sounds like the NFL came away from those discussions disinterested. "We're not looking to make a deal," said league spokesman Joe Lockhart. "We're very confident our arguments will prevail in court." Althou ...
20 October 2017Amari Cooper's slot-route percentage was a season-high 35% in Thursday night's breakout game against the Chiefs. Per Fantasy Guru/Rotoworld analyst Graham Barfield, Cooper logged just 15% of his snaps in the slot in Weeks 1-6. The Raiders began moving Cooper around more against the Chiefs and he capitalized in a major way, parlaying a season-high 19 targets into 11 catches for 210 yards and two touchdowns in Oakland's upset win.
20 October 2017Vikings coach Mike Zimmer doesn't expect Sam Bradford (knee) to miss the rest of the season. Bradford has missed four of the last fives games and is already ruled out for Sunday. He got Regenokine treatments for his knee this week, but remains without a timetable. The Vikings should continue to move Bradford slowly given his history of setbacks. With Teddy Bridgewater close to getting cleared, Bradford may be returning to a backup role when healthy. ...
