    NFL Player News - Week 9

    SF - QB Jimmy Garoppolo acquired by 49ers

    New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo was acquired by the San Francisco 49ers Monday, Oct. 30, in exchange for a 2018 second-round draft choice, according to sources.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    An upgrade for the 49er receivers and obviously a big uptick for Garoppolo who goes from backup to soon to be starter.

    DAL - Judge denies retraining order for RB Ezekiel Elliott

    A federal judge denied the NFL Players Association's request for a preliminary injunction in the Ezekiel Elliott case on Monday, meaning the Dallas Cowboys running back's six-game suspension will be reinstated.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    There will be a 24 hour window for an appeal but if that's not successful, Elliott will begin his suspension immediately. Reports are that Dallas would use a committee approach for RB if Elliott were to miss with McFadden, Morris and Smith seeing work.

    Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (knee) is no longer in danger of losing his leg due to complications from his knee injury, according to head coach John Fox. Fox said doctors feel good about Miller's status.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    There was serious concern that Miller could lose his leg, but it sounds like his doctors have prevented that from happening. Miller will stay in the New Orleans hospital to undergo further testing.

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 9, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Fantasy owners who drafted Reed are already prepared for him to miss time given his long injury history. We'll see Vernon Davis start for Washington in Week 9, and he's certainly got TE1 upside.

    DET - WR Calvin Johnson rumors swirl

    Source: ESPN - Adam Schefter

    Retired WR Calvin Johnson, whose rights the Detroit Lions own, has been the subject of trade calls from two teams over the past week, according to sources. Figuring they had nothing to lose, the Lions told teams to reach out to Johnson to gauge his interest, but so far it has been noncommittal at best, diminishing any hope for a deal, sources said.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    It's great to think about Johnson returning to the football field, but the reality of that happening is likely slim. Several teams would love to add Megatron, and reports/rumors seem to indicate the Eagles and the Jaguars could be most interested. We'll see if anything happens before the Tuesday trade deadline at 4pm ET.

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch was activated from the Reserve/Suspended list Monday, Oct. 30. The team also waived RB Elijah Hood.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Lynch is back, and the team is trying to find their way after dropping another game in Week 8. The Raiders are 3-5 and Lynch's role has not been as large as some originally thought. He's averaging about 10 carries per game, and we'll see if the team expands that role now that he's back and they need to get on the winning track with the season slipping away.

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) has been designated as one of the players to return from the Reserve/Injured list this season.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    A move that was expected when Westbrook was initially put on the Reserved/Injured list. Westbrook is electric with the ball in his hands and gives the team another playmaker on offense. He'll work his way into the no3 WR position behind Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee. The Jaguars will have three weeks to add Westbrook to the 53-man roster.

    Davis hasn't played since Week 2, but he had seven catches for 73 yards in those first two games. When fully healthy, the talented rookie WR should be a big part of what the Titans do on offense. Check the waiver wire to see if he's been dropped and stash him if you can.

    The Panthers didn't think Benjamin was worth keeping around, especially with his contract coming up. Benjamin is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in 2019 as his $8.4 million fifth-year option was picked up for 2018. Without Benjamin, we'll see more targets for Devin Funchess.

    The Dolphins move forward with Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake in the backfield. Williams has over 20 receptions each of the last three years and has some PPR value. Drake has straight-line speed and can be dangerous in space, plus Dolphins head coach Adam Gase called him the no2 back earlier this month. It's a RBBC either way, but it looks like Drake may be the lead back in this situation.

    Wilson and the Seahawks converted $6.26 million of his 2017 base salary into a signing bonus. That money is now prorated over the remaining three seasons of his contract. The restructured deal freed up $4.17 million against Seattle's 2017 salary cap.

    We'll see if that's the case, although it's difficult to believe that Blount would remain at the top of the depth chart. In Week 9 against the Broncos, we're not encouraged about any Eagles running back. Ajayi will take some time to get up to speed, and we expect him to be the starter.

    Bryant was a healthy scratch for Week 8 against the Lions. We saw rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster go off with seven catches for 193 yards and one touchdown. With Bryant more involved that will take some targets away from Smith-Schuster, but we still like him as a flex option. Bryant is more of a 'what the heck' flex in deep leagues until we see that he's focused and actually used in the offense. He's only been targeted 36 times so far in 2017.

    Broncos have big problems if they're starting Osweiler. New England always ends up getting the better end of the deal in their backup Qb trades, this may be no different.

    Thursday Update

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been reinstated by the NFL on a conditional basis and will begin practicing with the Browns starting Monday, Nov. 20.
    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    He can immediately take part in meetings and individual workouts and can be added to the active roster Monday, Nov. 27. That makes him eligible for a return to the field in Week 13 of the regular season. Gordon led the league in receiving in 2013 (1,646 yards), but that was years ago and he hasn't played in an NFL game since 2014. All that being said, fantasy owners should add him in all formats due to his tremendous upside and the Browns need at the position.

    Friday Update

    HOU - QB Deshaun Watson's torn ACL confirmed

    Source: NFL Network - Mike Garafolo

    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson's (knee) torn anterior cruciate ligament has been confirmed, according to a source. He is out for the rest of the season.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    This is awful news, and confirms that Watson is done for the season. We're not excited by Tom Savage, and what he could do with DeAndre Hopkins either. This represents a severe hit to the Texans playoff hopes and offensive output, though Lamar Miller could see more work out of the backfield, which could make him more productive.

    Drake will get to split carries with Damien Williams, and Williams is likely to get the goal line looks. This offense has been pretty rough, so we're not terribly excited by either runner.

    Get him back in your lineup and Alfred Morris out. There will be a hearing on the merits, possibly as soon as next week, so we can't count on Elliott playing in Week 10. If his suspension is reinstated next week, he will not return until Week 16.

    Niles Paul is also out, leaving Vernon Davis as the only top three Washington tight end to be able to go on Sunday. Davis is a good bye week fill-in and could be a Top 10-12 fantasy tight end for as long as Reed is out.

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is listed as questionable on the injury report for Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Sanders is fully expected to play and should get a lot of targets against an Eagles defense that is very tough on the run and usually draws higher than average pass attempts.

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is 'on track' to return after missing the last three games with a knee injury he suffered in Week 5, according to WGR Sports Radio 550's Sal Capaccio.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    With the return of Clay and addition of Kelvin Benjamin, the Bills passing game should be improved against the Saints next week.

    Preseason sensation Dede Westbrook will return from injured reserve this week, but it appears Lee will play and relegate Westbrook to the #3 role for now.

    DET - RB Ameer Abdullah hoping for more red zone work

    Source: Detroit Free Press - Dave Birkett

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah recently told reporters while he has no plans to ask Otis for a bigger role in the red zone, he is more than willing to help the team improve on its last-place ranking in short-yardage conversions (33.3 percent conversion rate on third- and fourth-and-1, far below the NFL average of 66.5 percent).

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Abdullah has a decent matchup against a Packers defense that has been giving up a lot to opposing running backs since Aaron Rodgers went out. He might be worth a flex play this week with six teams on bye.

    ARI - RB Adrian Peterson to be featured

    Source: AZCardinals.com - Kyle Odegard

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be featured in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers. 'Feed the beast,' offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said of Peterson. 'It's like an old stove. The more wood you put in it, the hotter it gets. We've just got to make sure we feed him the ball so he can get comfortable.'
    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    Peterson is a borderline RB1 this week with six teams on bye and a very favorable matchup against the 49ers banged up defense.

    Sunday Morning Injury Updates

    QUARTERBACK

    JAMEIS WINSTON | SHOULDER | QUESTIONABLE | EXPECTED TO PLAY

    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Full
    Last Friday, Winston's shoulder injury looked to be a minor issue. After a limited week of practice, Winston worked out on Friday, then completed 32 of 44 passes for 384 yards on the road in Week 7. One week later, there's much more concern. Dirk Koetter told Sirius XM radio Winston aggravated his shoulder sprain in Week 7 and was also receiving treatment for a bruise in his deltoid muscle. Winston's poor performance against Carolina -- 21 of 38 for 210 yards with multiple poorly thrown passes -- raises concerns about whether his shoulder injury/aggravation or a divisional opponent who knows the Tampa Bay offensive well was the primary limiting factor.

    While Carolina's defense certainly played a role, it's reasonable to think Winston's shoulder is affecting his accuracy. The Buccaneers again limited Winston's throwing in practice this week before returning him to the usual Friday full -- but minor -- workout. Winston will play this week but until we see his accuracy improve and Tampa Bay comfortable increasing his practice load during the week, expect some hiccups in his performance.


    Jay Cutler
    | Ribs | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Full | Thurs - Full | Fri - Full

    Cutler had no chance to recover on a short week to play in the Week 7 Thursday night game. But Adam Gase had seen enough of Matt Moore and told reporters in his post-game press conferences Cutler would start ten days later. Though he's listed questionable, Cutler fully practiced and will start this week. There's a risk of inaccuracy and an in-game aggravation but Cutler can reasonably be expected to finish the game.


    Others of note: Joe Flacco
    (concussion), Cam Newton (shoulder) and Blake Bortles (chest) have practiced, are not listed on the game status report, and are expected to play without limitation. Deshaun Watson (knee) and Andrew Luck (shoulder) were placed on injured reserve. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    RUNNING BACK

    Leonard Fournette | Ankle | Not Listed | Expected to Play

    Practice Participation: Wed - Full | Thurs - Full | Fri - Full

    Fournette's low ankle sprain kept him out of last week's game after he responded more slowly than expected to rehab and the medical staff wasn't quite comfortable with his ability to cut at speed late in the week. Now, three weeks from the ankle injury, Fournette had no practice restrictions this week and the Jaguars intend to return him to his pre-injury role. Expect Fournette to play with minimal, if any, limitations this week.


    Devonta Freeman
    | Neck / Shoulder | Not Listed | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Television replays of Freeman's shoulder injury were not clear enough to determine a precise injury. By midweek, it was reported Freeman suffered a stinger. The Falcons chose to keep him in a non-contact jersey this week, though Dan Quinn jokingly said Freeman didn't have to wear it on Thursday -- he just liked the look of it. The Falcons consistently told reporters Freeman's shoulder would not limit him this week and supported their contention by not listing him on the game status report despite no full practices this week.

    It's a little disconcerting to see a player restricted from contact after a stinger. If there are lingering pain, weakness, or range of motion concerns after a stinger, players usually are restricted from practice until they can protect themselves. And that can take days to weeks. If Freeman had a stinger, his symptoms likely resolved quickly, with this week's restrictions more likely due to a sprain or contusion. While the game status report is reassuring, be aware that handicapping the Falcons' offensive target share this season has been difficult. If there are any in-game issues, Atlanta may increase Tevin Coleman's usage -- as they did at the end of last week's game.

    Unfortunately, we don't know enough about Freeman's condition to approximate odds on that happening. Watch for Sunday morning updates. If the Twitter feeds of Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport are quiet, Freeman can likely be expected to see his pre-injury workload.

    ***Sunday Morning Update: Freeman was not mentioned by either Schefter or Rapoport this AM. While there's no guarantee the Falcons won't use Coleman more this week, I see the lack of "need" to update the public on Freeman's condition as a positive sign.


    Rob Kelley
    | Ankle | Questionable | Likely to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Washington had a quarter of the players on their active roster out or limited in practice this week including Kelley, who's been playing on a sprained ankle. There doesn't seem to be any concern locally about Kelley's availability. However, Washington continues to use multiple backs in multiple roles, at least two starters on the line are out with another two starters limited at best, and both Vernon Davis and Niles Paul will be inactive. Though Seattle's defense has its own injury issues, any limitation for Kelley will be rough. After only 12 offensive snaps and eight carries last week, don't expect much more from Kelley this week.


    Matt Breida
    | Knee | Not Listed | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Although I didn't see it specifically confirmed anywhere else, Stephania Bell tweeted early this week that Brieda suffered a low-grade MCL sprain last week. The 49ers limited him to non-contact work until late in the week but did not list him on the game status report. He's expected to play.


    C.J. Prosise
    | Ankle | Questionable | Game-time Decision


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Full

    Two weeks ago, Prosise fully practiced on Thursday and Friday but had only a lukewarm Friday endorsement from Pete Carroll and played just two snaps against the Giants. On Friday, Prosise told reporters the pain he was experiencing two weeks ago is gone and Carroll told reporters Prosise was "full speed and looking good." Still, the Seahawks have a stable running back depth chart and Carroll wouldn't fully commit to Prosise returning to the active roster. He's officially considered a game-time decision. While Prosise looks to be ready to return, it's not clear whether the Seahawks fully trust him to take up a roster spot and execute their game plan.


    Andre Ellington
    | Quad | Questionable | Game-time decision


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    There were no actionable local reports on Ellington through Friday night. The limited practices, after a bye week to rest and now three weeks after what's been reported as a contusion, are worrisome. Hopefully, Ellington is being eased back in to work without much concern from the team. But watch the Sunday reports and inactive list closely if the market share in the Arizona backfield interests you.

    ***Sunday Morning Update: Ellington is expected to play today.


    Others of note: Lamar Miller
    (knee), Ty Montgomery (ribs/wrist), Jonathan Stewart (toe), and Paul Perkins (ribs) have practiced, are not listed on the game status report, and are expected to play without limitation. Terrance West (calf) has been declared out. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    WIDE RECEIVER

    Emmanuel Sanders | Ankle | Questionable | Likely to Play

    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Full

    Sanders was reportedly given a six week timetable after his ankle injury in Week 6 and was still limping significantly during practice last week. This week, Sanders told reporters he could make all the cuts he needed to make and returned to a full Friday practice. Sanders also told reporters he isn't "all the way" himself yet but expected to play. The potential of a limited route tree and quarterback change to Brock Osweiler are both concerns for Sanders' upside.


    DeVante Parker
    | Ankle | Questionable | Likely to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Full | Thurs - Full | Fri - Full

    The practice line looks good for Parker and all indications are that Parker will return this week. However, Adam Gase has pulled no punches with his team over the past two weeks and wasn't ready to say all is well with Parker on Friday. While Gase told reporters Parker has looked good and isn't restricting himself in practice, he also said Parker wasn't ready for a physical secondary last week and said there were no guarantees Parker was healthy enough to finish a game yet. It's dangerous to read too much into observations in the locker room, but at least one beat reporter noted a limp during the week. I expect Parker to play but there are enough red flags to worry about a lower than usual floor for Parker in his return. Working in Parker's favor will be a matchup against a banged-up Oakland secondary that will be without David Amerson again.


    Sterling Shepard
    | Ankle | Not Listed | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Full | Fri - Full

    Shepard fully practiced out the Giants' bye week, is not listed on the game status report, and will play. One of many players close to playing in Week 7 before their team elected to hold them out to rest through a Week 8 bye, the extra two weeks of rehab and recovery are positive signs for those looking for Shepard to play without limitation.


    Marqise Lee
    | Knee | Questionable | Likely to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Limited

    Lee was very limited in practice in the Jaguars' Week 7 game but played. He's remained limited despite a bye week recovery period. Observers expect him to play this week. Despite the limited practice, Lee played 47 snaps and was targeted 6 times in Week 7.


    Jeremy Maclin
    | Shoulder | Questionable | Likely to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Mike Wallace | Back | Questionable | Expected to Play

    Practice Participation: Wed - Full | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Full

    The Ravens listed 12 players questionable this week but expect nearly all of them to play. That includes Maclin and Wallace. Maclin has been listed with a shoulder injury for weeks and missed time, including one unexpected absence in Week 6. Watch pregame notes closely but expect him to play. Wallace has recovered from a recent concussion but continues to have sporadic practice participation due to back pain. His full practice on Friday suggests he'll be fully available barring an unexpected pre-game flare.


    Jamison Crowder
    | Hamstring | Questionable | Inactive


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - DNP | Fri - DNP

    Crowder aggravated a mild, but nagging hamstring strain last week. Jay Gruden was not optimistic on Crowder's availability at all this week and Washington did not clear Crowder to practice. Crowder isn't reassuring either and told reporters after Friday's DNP he does not want to further aggravate his injury and "have it linger the rest of the season." An important note for those watching Washington's inactive list: The team has more than six players who are not healthy enough to play this week. At least three offensive linemen are going to be inactive. Two tight ends have already been ruled out. It's possible Crowder will be on the active roster but not play. If he is active and dresses, he'll likely see very few snaps at best.

    ***Saturday Update: Crowder did not travel with the team and has been declared out.


    Cole Beasley
    | Concussion | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Full

    Beasley's practice participation increased throughout the week and Dallas cleared him to visit the independent neurologist for clearance to return to game action. At the time the team's game status report was published, the outcome of that visit was still unknown and the Cowboys list him questionable. Beasley is expected to be cleared and play.


    Dede Westbrook
    | Core abdominal muscle repair | Not yet on active roster


    Westbrook was officially designated to return this week and practiced. He's not listed on the team's game status report because the Jaguars haven't yet moved him to their active roster. Doug Marrone was still unsure whether the team would do so this week. They have until Saturday afternoon to decide. If Westbrook is activated, he'll have no surgical restrictions and is ready to play. However, the Jaguars have said they'll limit his offensive role early. I'll update after Jacksonville makes their roster decision.

    ***Saturday Update: Westbrook was not moved to the active roster and is not yet eligible to play.


    Corey Davis
    | Hamstring | Not Listed | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Full | Thurs - Full | Fri - Full

    Davis admitted he wasn't fully recovered before his most recent aggravation. Unfortunately, aggravations are a common occurrence -- particularly in young players who may not understand the fine line between "still injured" and "limited but ready." After another month of rehab, Davis fully practiced out of the Titans' bye week and is ready to play. Mike Mularkey told reporters Davis wasn't yet ready for a full snap count but would have a significant role in the offense despite the limited snap count. If Davis is effective and finishes the game healthy, he'll see a full workload in the weeks to come.


    Adam Humphries
    | Rib | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Full

    The Buccaneers routinely use the questionable tag as a surrogate for probable. Humphries increased his practice participation all week and is expected to see his usual snap count.


    Others of note: Dez Bryant
    (knee), Terrelle Pryor (ankle), Brandon LaFell (hamstring), and Taylor Gabriel (tooth) have practiced, are not listed on the game status report, and are expected to play without limitation. Kenny Golladay (hamstring), Tyler Boyd (knee), and Albert Wilson (hamstring) have been declared out. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    TIGHT END

    Zach Ertz | Hamstring | Questionable | Game-time Decision

    Practice Participation: Wed - Not Listed | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Ertz left Thursday's practice with a tight hamstring and was short with reporters who asked questions about his status. The Eagles cleared him to return to a limited Friday practice, which is generally a good sign. At minimum, the medical staff was looking to see how Ertz responded the following day with the hopes of clearing him. Doug Pederson told reporters he expects Ertz to play, noting the medical staff decided to "back him down" and "not push him any farther." I expect Ertz's status to be addressed in the Sunday morning Schefter/Rapoport tweet updates.

    ***Sunday Morning Update: Adam Schefter tweeted this AM that Doug Pederson said Ertz will play. Shortly after, Ian Rapoport tweeted a source told him Ertz is expected to play. There were no reports of limitation. I'll continue to monitor news on Ertz this morning.


    Delanie Walker
    | Ankle | Questionable | Game-time Decision


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Limited

    Walker wants to play this week and the Titans have no concerns putting veteran offensive talent on the field on game day whether they practice or not. Walker admitted his return would depend on how well he "can take the pain." That's an obvious response but a meaningful one. Bone bruises are painful, especially if it's in a weight-bearing area of the ankle. Given Walker's inability to do much in practice -- Mike Mularkey said Walker could only "do some things" and didn't trust him to do much on the indoor turf field -- it's clear Walker's bone bruise remains painful.

    I think Walker is on the doubtful side of his questionable tag. If he is active, he'll be limited and at risk of an early exit if he's unable to perform.

    *Martellus Bennett | Shoulder | Doubtful | Likely Inactive

    Practice Participation: Thurs - DNP | Fri - DNP | Sat - DNP

    The Packers have not published their Saturday practice report and game status report yet but Bennett is looking doubtful to play. Mike McCarthy said the team was still waiting on test results at the end of the week and multiple beat writers believe Bennett will be rested. I'll update after Saturday's release.

    ***Saturday Update: Bennett did not practice Saturday and is listed doubtful. He is likely to be inactive.

    C.J. Fiedorowicz
    | Concussion | Not yet on Active Roster


    Fiedorowicz was designated to return this week and returned to practice. As of Friday, his recovery continued to progress and Bill O'Brien told reporters Fiedorowicz had a good chance to be ready. As of Saturday morning, the Texans had yet to move him to the active roster. I'll update after the NFL's Saturday transaction press release.

    ***Saturday Update: Fiedorowicz was not moved to the active roster and is not yet eligible to play.


    Others of note
    : Jimmy Graham (ankle), Ryan Griffin (hip), and Maxx Williams (ankle) have practiced, are not listed on the game status report, and are expected to play without limitation. Jordan Reed (hamstring) and Niles Paul (concussion) have been declared out. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    DEFENSIVE PLAYER NOTES

    EDGE:

    Olivier Vernon didn't practice after resting through the bye week and will again be inactive.

    Dee Ford aggravated his back injury and is out this week. Hopefully, this won't be a prolonged absence. It's reassuring there has yet to be reports of a specialist visit or steroid injection, but the missed games over two separate time frames are concerning.
    DEFENSIVE LINE:
    Sheldon Richardson is considered a game-time decision with a mid-week strain of his oblique muscle. Pete Carroll wasn't particularly optimistic and it's a tough injury to play through.
    LINEBACKER:
    Bobby Wagner generally plays whether he practices or not but Pete Carroll told reporters the team would see how he looked in pregame before deciding on his game day status.
    Reuben Foster is expected to play this week, according to Kyle Shanahan.
    B.J. Goodson and Jonathan Casillas are both out this week.
    Todd Davis is recovering from a high ankle sprain. He's made good progress but remains a game-time decision.
    DEFENSIVE BACK:
    Earl Thomas is out with a hamstring injury and could miss multiple weeks.
    Ronald Darby will likely be inactive this week and return after Philadelphia's Week 10 bye.
    Kam Chancellor is listed questionable but Pete Carroll told reporters Chancellor was ready to play.

    Sunday Update

    PHI - RB Jay Ajayi might not play Sunday

    Source: NFL.com - Edward Lewis

    Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said he hasn't decided if RB Jay Ajayi will play in Week 9's game against the Denver Broncos.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting much from Ajayi if he does play against the Broncos. Ajayi has only been given a limited portion of the playbook, featuring just '10 to 15 plays' to focus on for now. If he's on the field it is likely a 'tell' that the Eagles are going to run as Ajayi may not yet be trusted in pass protection.

    OAK - Normal load for RB Marshawn Lynch

    Source: Sacramento Bee - Matt Kawahara

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch's won't have a diminished role in the offense when he returns from a one-game suspension to face the Miami Dolphins in Week 9, according to offensive coordinator Todd Downing.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    A normal load for Lynch just isn't that much as he's been averaging around 12 carries per game recently. With the Raiders season spiraling down, they might turn to Lynch more in order to help them out. Of course, they should have been doing that already so we're not going to get too excited about the possibility of an increased role for Lynch until we see it. With his current role, Lynch is a RB3 or flex option for fantasy owners.

    JAX - WR Dede Westbrook not activated

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) was not activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 4, and will not play in Week 9.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Westbrook can make an instant impact for the Jagaurs passing game as a big-play specialist when healthy. The rookie WR from Oklahoma has burst, speed and the attitude to gash defenders regularly. Stash him in deep bench leagues if you can.

    Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs, wrist) fully participated in practice Saturday, Nov. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Even though Aaron Jones is the lead back for the Packers now, more touches for Montgomery as a reserve may be in the future. The team needs to limit QB Brett Hundley and run early and often when they can. Montgomery is a deep flex or RB4 in Week 9 against the Lions.

    GB - Doubtful tag for TE Martellus Bennett

    Source: Packers.com

    Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) did not participate in practice Saturday, Nov. 4, and is listed as doubtful for Week 9.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    This injury forces Bennett out of the lineup for the first time in 2017. He's not been doing much with the Packers as a receiver this year, but Bennett is a strong blocker who helps blast open holes for the rushing attack. Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers will fill in for Bennett in Week 9 against the Lions.

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited during practice Saturday, Nov. 4, and is listed as doubtful for Week 9.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Golladay hasn't been on the field since Week 3. We like the rookie WR in dynasty formats but redraft owners should have moved on a long time ago.

    HOU - QB T.J. Yates to be No. 2 QB

    Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates will serve as the backup quarterback against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    The Texans did add Matt McGloin after Watson's injury. McGloin played under Texans head coach Bill O'Brien in college at Penn State. It shouldn't take him long to get up to speed in the offense. In the meantime, Yates is the veteran behind starter Tom Savage.

    BAL - TE Nick Boyle a game-time decision

    Baltimore Ravens TE Nick Boyle (toe) will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 9 game, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Boyle had a season-high four catches for 29 yards in Week 8 against the Dolphins. We'd say he's on the doubtful side of questionable for Week 9 against the Titans.

    DET - TE Eric Ebron still has support

    Source: The Detroit News - Justin Rogers

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron's chances of being traded before the deadline were exaggerated, according to head coach Jim Caldwell, and Caldwell said he expects Ebron's production to improve as the season goes on.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Ebron has support, but that is unlikely to lead to fantasy points. He's barely used this year, and should only be projected for a small handful of catches each week. The Lions are using TE Darren Fells more in the red zone, and that's why he has three receiving TDs compared to Ebron's lone score in 2017.

    DEN - More carries for RB Devontae Booker?

    Source: The Denver Post - Nick Kosmider
    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker has made the most of his limited touches, according to head coach Vance Joseph. 'He's a young guy with strong, fresh legs,' Joseph said. 'He has great ball skills. As we go along here, he should get more opportunities.'
    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    All fantasy owners need to take note here. Booker may be on some waiver wires out there, and he needs to be stashed on your bench if possible. The Broncos really like Booker and had plans for him to be the starting back before he injured his wrist in June. As Booker gets more touches..and perhaps even starts for the Broncos...it will decrease the role for C.J. Anderson. Using more Booker could also really impact the touches for backup Jamaal Charles.

    Jay Ajayi

    If you're a Jay Ajayi guy, know that it looks like he'll play today with his new team, but he's expected to have a limited role.

    From the NFL.com article by Kevin Patra

    "Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Friday he was still mulling whether to play Ajayi in his first week with the team, noting the tailback could be in on 10 to 15 plays.

    "He's done a nice job," Pederson said Friday. "He's a smart guy. He comes from an offense that uses very similar terminology, so he's familiar with that. He's picked it up, he's had some extra meetings with [running backs coach] Duce [Staley] this week, so we're trying to get him up to speed as fast as he can and we can and he's done a nice job."

    "This week, LeGarrette Blount should remain the early-down back with Wendell Smallwood playing the pass-catching role. Rookie Corey Clement could see his few snaps go to Ajayi."

    Make sure to understand, Doug Pederson doesn't have to do what he said here. But this is what he said and we tend to believe and see Ajayi with a limited role this week.

    Here's to Football.

    Jay Ajayi must be damaged goods for Miami to trade him for so little. He was great last year.

    Monday Update

    IND - QB Jacoby Brissett posts 308 yards, two TDs
    Source: The Associated Press
    Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett completed 20 of his 30 pass attempts for 308 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 9 game against the Houston Texans. He also ran twice for 12 yards.
    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    Brissett was able to ride T.Y. Hilton to a good fantasy day against the Texans. He's proving that he has a future as a starting quarterback, but could have a lot rougher time against the Steelers next week.

    Ivory is the still the backup to Leonard Fournette and ahead of TJ Yeldon. He ran hot despite his low yards per carry and should be held as a handcuff to Fournette even after Fournette returns to face the weak Chargers run defense next week.

    Green had enough of Jalen Ramsey and threw punches at him three times while wrestling him to the ground. He is clearly frustrated beyond Ramsey's coverage and trash talking. He's still a WR1 against Tennessee next week but the cracks are showing in the Bengals team.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick is in. The shoulder injury was possibly affecting Winston's accuracy. The team has been allowing him to play through shoulder ailments, but since they are going to 2-6 and effectively out of the playoff hunt with no bye, they might rest him against the Jets next week.
