    NFL Player News - Week 9

    ARI - RB Chase Edmonds likely out multiple games

    Source: NFL Network - Tom Pelissero


    Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) is expected to miss 'a few weeks' with a hamstring strain, according to a source.


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


    The hamstring injury is fairly serious, so the team is shutting him down for a bit. That's why they went out and traded for RB Kenyan Drake on Monday. Drake could be the starter for the Cardinals in Week 9 on Thursday night against the 49ers.

    ARI - RB Kenyan Drake headed to Cardinals

    Source: ESPN - Adam Schefter


    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake was acquired by the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 28, in exchange for a conditional 2020 draft pick.


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


    The Cardinals needed help in the backfield with David Johnson and Chase Edmonds both banged up. It's a short week for the Cardinals as they play on Thursday night in Week 9, so Drake only has a few days to get up to speed. He could be in for a heavy workload in his first game with his new team.

    CHI - Chicago sticking with QB Mitchell Trubisky

    Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky will remain the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future, according to comments made by head coach Matt Nagy on Monday, Oct. 28.


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


    Trubisky is their starter but he's not playing well. They'll stick with him because he was such a high draft pick in 2017, but Trubisky has clearly taken a step back in his third year of starting.

    Flacco is going to miss Week 9 against the Browns. The Broncos have a bye week after that, then we'll see if Flacco can return to the field. The possibility of him ending his season on Injured Reserve is there but we'll have to wait to see if that happens in a couple of weeks.

    Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone has not yet thought about the quarterback situation. He doesn't need to right now with Foles still injured and Minshew playing good football. We'll see if Foles can get back to the field in a couple of weeks and if the Jaguars would put him on the bench.

    Wednesday Update

    CIN - QB Ryan Finley named the starter

    Source: NFL Network - Tom Pelissero


    Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley was named the starting quarterback Tuesday, Oct. 29.


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


    The move to the rookie has been expected for some time now. Andy Dalton goes to the bench since the team isn't winning, and the Bengals get to take a look at Finley to determine whether or not he could continue to be a starter in the future. They are looking at a premium pick in the 2020 NFL draft and could be in the market for a premium passer. Finley is a big, tall, pocket passer with the arm strength to hit all throws required in the NFL.

    It's a short week for the Cardinals...and Drake was just traded to the Cardinals on Monday. Both David Johnson and Chase Edmonds are banged up, but with an 'eased in' role Drake might not perform like anything more than a deep 'what the heck' flex in a bad matchup.

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


    Flacco has not been playing well for the Broncos this year. They will go with Brandon Allen as their starter in Week 9 against the Browns and he will be able to run more bootlegs than Flacco did (which was basically none). Allen is a deep add for Fantasy GMs in start-2 QB leagues or deep streaming leagues.

    Case Keenum is still in concussion protocol, although he has extra time to get out of protocol compared to a typical week because he played on a Thursday last week. If Haskins starts, the Buffalo D/ST becomes an even better play.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) is targeting a Week 10 return against the Dallas Cowboys, which is when he is eligible to come back from the Reserve/Injured list.


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


    We can't imagine Doctson having a ton of fantasy value when he returns. He's competing for the No. 3 or No. 4 receiving job with the Vikings behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. The Vikings like to run the ball a lot and that doesn't leave much for wide receivers further down the depth chart.

Brandon Allen starts for the Broncos in Week 9 with undrafted rookie Brett Rypien backing him up.

    Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers, Deon Cain, and Parris Campbell will try to pick up the slack, although Eric Ebron is also a candidate to get more targets with Hilton out. Jacoby Brissett's value takes a hit, as does Marlon Mack with the offense less likely to sustain drives without Hilton.

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


    They say that, but the reality of the situation is that Mahomes may be better off just missing another game. Matt Moore showed last week the offense wouldn't go under without Mahomes, but it certainly is not the same without the superstar quarterback. We'll see if the team actually gets Mahomes back in the starting lineup in Week 9. Fortunately, it's a 1:00 PM kickoff so we'll have official word early.

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


    Thielen was limited in practice this week. He's pushing to get back out there but Thielen is no lock to play.

In other moves, DT Joey Ivie was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster while OT Greg Senat (unspecified) was placed on the Injured/Reserve list and QB Kyle Shurmur was waived.

    With Patrick Mahomes likely down again this week, Henne will serve as the backup to Matt Moore.

    NYG - WR Sterling Shepard has no concerns

    Source: ESPN.com - Jordan Raanan


    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) researched concussions and sought out legal supplements during his three-game absence but has few concerns going forward. 'I don't need to play this game if I can't go out and be the player that I am,' Sherpard said.


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


    Shepard has been concussed twice this season, and that's why he's missed a handful of games. He's back this week for the Giants, but we can only trust him as a WR3 or deep flex play against the Cowboys on Monday night.

    New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (ankle) is being activated off the Reserrve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 2.


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


    Harry has been back at practice the last two weeks for the Patriots. Their first-round pick out of Arizona State in 2019, Harry is a big receiver who has a game that thrives off of his run-after-the-catch ability. We'll see what kind of a role he can carve out in a WR corps that features Mohamed Sanu and Julian Edelman.

    Free-agent RB Alex Collins (Ravens) has received a three-game suspension from the National Football League for violating the league's personal conduct policy after being arrested last spring, according to multiple sources.


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


    We'll see if some team takes a chance on Collins in the near future or on a futures contract for 2020. He eventually received probation in his legal situation. Collins is also recovering from a broken leg sustained in mid-July and is expected to receive medical clearance next week.

    Monday Update

    NYG - WR Sterling Shepard to miss Week 9

    New York WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) is back in the concussion protocol and has been ruled out of the team's Week 9 game.

    This is a setback for the Giants offense and worrisome for Shepard's 2019 outlook.

    JAX - Jacksonville to make QB decision during bye

    Source: NFL.com - Grant Gordon


    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles (collarbone) is expected to return for the team's Week 11 game, and head coach Doug Marrone said he will take the bye week to decide whether Foles or QB Gardner Minshew will be the starting quarterback for that game.


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


    Minshew had been playing well enough for the Jaguars to string together a few wins going into this week, but Foles experience will probably win out.

    Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 9 game and did not return.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) left the Week 9 game early because of a hamstring injury and did not return.

    Thielen might have re-injured the hamstring and he certainly has to be considered very doubtful for next week vs. Dallas and could easily be out through the Week 12 bye. Laquon Treadwell and Olabisi Johnson will get more snaps with Thielen out.

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz finished with nine receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in Week 9 against the Chicago Bears.

    Ertz is back and fantasy teams that doubted him today will regret it. The buy low window is closed heading into the bye. The wide receivers continue to play at an underwhelming level for the Eagles, so Ertz will be key to the second half push.

    Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki caught six passes for 95 yards against the New York Jets in Week 9. He was targeted six times during the game.

    Gesicki showed signs of life earlier in the year, and this week was the first time that the superior athleticism he possesses showed up play after play on an NFL field. The Jets are certainly a matchup to exploit with Evan Engram and the Giants up next, but Gesicki is in streaming consideration against the Colts next week.

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 24-for-36 for 288 yards and three touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 9.

    This team wants to win with Fitzpatrick as their leader despite the odds that have been stacked against them. They'll be a game unit against a Colts team that is unlikely to blow them out of the water next week, so Fitzpatrick is establishing himself as a streaming option.

    Montgomery got free for a few nice gains and scored twice from short range, but never really got in a groove despite the good fantasy result. This will give us hope to play him against Detroit next week.

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels spun his wheels with eight runs for just 10 yards in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts, but he posted 13 receptions for 73 yards on his 13 targets.


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


    Samuels had a costly fumble but was helping move the chains all day in a very conservative pass offense. If James Conner is out next week as expected, Samuels will be an excellent PPR RB2 and worthy nonPPR flex.

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

    Peterson is leaving everything on the field even though his team is going nowhere. He'll likely be joined by Derrius Guice after the bye, which deflates what little value he generated in a hopeless situation.

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


    The Colts offense was functional with Hoyer and he should be able to exploit the Dolphins defense if Brissett can't go next week. The Colts lost a heartbreaker in a situation where this outcome could end up being the difference between a playoff spot and staying home, although they should be able to recover in the standings next week.

    Johnson gobbled up yards on a few catches when the Texans had a long ways to go for a first down and won a collision at the goal line to score in his best game of the season. He's an emergency play with upside worth rostering through the bye in PPR leagues.

    Wednesday Update

    CAR - QB Cam Newton to IR

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 5, which will end his season.

    Newton's Lisfranc injury was not getting better as the season wore on. He met with foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson last week and didn't receive good news on his recovery. Kyle Allen continues as the starter for the team, and we may have seen the last of Newton in Carolina. He's owed a non-guaranteed $19.1 million in 2020.

    Foles is healthy and ready to go against a huge divisional game in Week 11 against the Colts. He's got a big contract and it was only a matter of time, regardless of the hype around Gardner Minshew. The Jaguars are in win-now mode as they try to make a playoff push.
