Woodson says he's playing in 2015

Draft Sharks - 3 hours 32 min ago

Raiders S Charles Woodson said Wednesday that there's "no question" he'll play again in 2015. That'll be the 18th season for a guy who turned 38 in October. But Woodson remains a productive player for the Raiders and IDP owners. His big game against the Chiefs last Thursday earned AFC defensive player of the week honors.

Rams expecting Long back

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 21:10

The Rams expect DE Chris Long to return this week against the Raiders. Long has been out since ankle surgery following Week 1. HC Jeff Fisher told The Associated Press that the team has missed the veteran pass-rusher's production. Long certainly has a chance to deliver some solid sack numbers the rest of the way on a D-line playing quite well lately.

Foster practices Wednesday, expected to start

Fantasy Football Today - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 19:00

RB missed last two games with groin injury

The Texans got some good news Wednesday when running back Arian Foster was able to practice after missing the last two games with a groin injury. "He looked pretty good," coach Bill O'Brien said. Barring a setback, Foster will start against Tennessee. (Houston Chronicle)

FF Today's Take: Good news for Foster owners as the Texans give up the second-most fantasy points to running backs. Barring any setbacks in practice this week, Foster will be an RB1 in Week 13.

TE Jordan Cameron practices

Fantasy Football Today - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 15:39

Still considered day-to-day in return from concussion

Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron haven't played together in a game since last December. The Cleveland Browns hope to have both Pro Bowl pass-catchers on the field against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, but Cameron's health remains iffy. After the tight end practiced Wednesday, Browns coach Mike Pettine called him "still day-to-day" after missing the past four games with a concussion. It's worth noting that Cameron took part in last Friday's session, too, but he wasn't well enough to suit up for Sunday's win over the Falcons. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: It looks like Jordan Cameron (concussion) may finally be able to return to the field this weekend. He hasn't played since week 8 and has not caught more than three balls in a single game this year. He brings plenty of upside when healthy and should help owners during the fantasy post-season.

Thomas still out Wednesday

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 13:57

Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) remained sidelined on Wednesday.  He's yet to practice since getting hurt 10 days ago.  Consider him 50-50 for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs.

Ryan Fitzpatrick to start for Houston

Fantasy Football Today - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 13:52

Texans sign Thad Lewis, place Mallett on IR

HOUSTON -- The Texans placed quarterback Ryan Mallett on injured reserve on Wednesday, meaning Ryan Fitzpatrick will start on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Fitzpatrick started the first nine games, with a 4-5 record, before being benched during the bye week in favor of Mallett, who went 1-1 as the starter. Also on Wednesday, the Texans signed free-agent quarterback Thad Lewis, who was released by the Bills in training camp (ESPN.com)

FF Today's Take: Despite keeping things conservative through the air, Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown at least one touchdown pass in eight of his nine starts this season. He has enough weapons to provide fantasy owners with QB2 production but doesn't bring much upside to the table. To add depth to the roster in the wake of Mallett's injury the team signed Thad Lewis, while rookie Tom Savage presumably takes over the backup role behind Fitzpatrick.

McKinnon misses practice, Asiata limited

Fantasy Football Today - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 13:46

Kyle Rudolph practices in full

Did not participate: TE Chase Ford (hamstring/foot), FS Harrison Smith (shoulder/ankle), WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee), RB Jerick McKinnon (low back) and DT Sharrif Floyd (knee). Limited participation: RB Matt Asiata (concussion), LT Matt Kalil (knee) and LB Anthony Barr (knee). Full participation: TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen/groin), WR Jarius Wright (hamstring), WR Greg Jennings (rib) and RT Mike Harrison (ankle). (Star Tribune)

FF Today's Take: With Jerick McKinnon banged up, recent addition Ben Tate is likely to be worked into the rotation week 13. Until the backfield situation is worked out in Minnesota it is tough to trust any Viking running back for fantasy purposes.

Bush questionable for Thanksgiving

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 13:29

Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Bears.  He remained limited in practice this week but is expected to play on Thanksgiving.  It's a plus matchup at home, but Bush is tough to trust in fantasy lineups.  He's been held under 45 total yards in his past 3 games.

Foster has a "good chance" to play Week 13

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 13:25

Texans HC Bill O'Brien says that RB Arian Foster (groin) has a "good chance" to play against the Titans this weekend.  Foster practiced on Wednesday and "looked good," according to O'Brien.  Of course, the Texans have been optimistic about Foster the past 2 weeks before deactivating him for the games.  We'll continue to track his progress over the next couple days.  Tennessee ranks 29th in fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Reed says he'll play Week 13

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 13:07

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) says he'll play against the Colts this weekend.  He returned to a limited practice on Wednesday -- his 1st since going down 10 days ago.  We'll see if Reed can avoid a setback over the next couple days.  He caught 7 balls for 40 yards in QB Colt McCoy's 1st start this season.

Murray cleared to practice

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 13:00

Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) has been cleared to practice.  He still has another stage of the concussion protocol to get through, but he's on track to do so ahead of Sunday's game against the Rams.  Murray will be the best bet to lead Oakland's backfield in touches in that one, but Darren McFadden will likely still be involved.  And the tough matchup leaves Murray as just a RB3 or flex for Week 13.

RB Ryan Mathews practices for Bolts

Fantasy Football Today - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 12:56

Running back not expected to miss time

Wednesday brought confirmation to every indication Sunday. A shoulder injury is not expected to force Ryan Mathews to miss time. The Chargers running back was sidelined for much of the second half against the Rams due to the third-quarter ailment, suffered when tackle D.J. Fluker and linebacker Alec Ogletree fell on top of him, about 600 pounds of body weight pushing his left shoulder into the ground. Mathews returned late in the fourth quarter. (San Diego Union-Tribune)

FF Today's Take: Mathews (shoulder) was effective last week despite netting only twelve carries. However, he faces a stiffer test against a Ravens rush defense that ranks 5th in the league. Barring setbacks in practice, Mathews should see enough touches to be a useful RB3 or flex option for week 13.

Fitzgerald making "some progress"

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 12:01

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians says WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is making "some progress."  He was unable to practice on Wednesday, though, and remains iffy for this weekend's game against the Falcons.  Even if Fitz suits up for that one, he'll be tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

Seferian-Jenkins practices Wednesday

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 11:50

Bucs TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) returned to the field for Wednesday's practice.  He should be ready for this weekend's game against the Bengals' 23rd-ranked TE defense, but ASJ has totaled just 3 catches over his past 2 outings.

Allen still out Wednesday

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 11:17

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice.  This ankle injury is turning out to be more serious than initially believed.  We'll continue to track Allen's status, but fantasy owners can't be counting on him playing against the Redskins on Sunday.

Cameron "still day-to-day"

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 10:20

Browns HC Mike Pettine wouldn't commit to TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) returning for this weekend's game against the Bills.  "We're looking for him to practice symptom-free for a couple of days in a row," Pettine said Wednesday.  "Still day-to-day."   We're expecting Cameron to play, assuming he avoids a setback this week.  We'll have a better idea of his status by Friday.

Clay back at practice

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 10:17

Dolphins TE Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) returned to practice on Wednesday.  If he can avoid a setback over the next few days, he should play against the Jets on Monday night.  He'd be a low-end TE1 vs. the league's 31st-ranked TE defense.

Vick benched, Geno Smith to start

Fantasy Football Today - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 08:30

Decision reportedly comes from GM

In a surprise, the New York Jets have decided to return to Geno Smith as their starting quarterback, sending Michael Vick to the bench after only three starts. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: The Jets will Smith another opportunity but don't expect it to go well. The team is coming off an embarrassing loss to the Bills (38-3) and with head coach Rex Ryan a lame duck, the team is simply playing out the string. Expect the Dolphins pass rush to succeed on Monday night.

Smith will start Week 13

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 05:36

Jets QB Geno Smith will start Monday night's game against the Dolphins.  Previous reports that HC Rex Ryan leaning toward QB Michael Vick, so it looks like he was over-ruled by upper management.  Either way, it makes sense for New York to go back to their younger, slightly less crappy QB.  Smith obviously isn't a fantasy option against Miami's 2nd-ranked QB defense.

Redskins going with McCoy for Week 13

Draft Sharks - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 05:34

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Redskins will start QB Colt McCoy against the Colts on Sunday.  QB Robert Griffin has struggled all year in HC Jay Gruden's offense.  And it's only gotten worse the past 2 weeks, with Griffin totaling just 313 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs.  According to Schefter, though, RG3 "still appears to be a significant part of the Redskins' long-term plan ... Washington is hitting the reset button, though it might not last long."  It sounds like the QB situation might be a week-to-week ordeal the rest of the way.  But considering RG3 has a $16 million team option in 2015, we wouldn't consider him a lock to be back with the 'Skins next season.  Avoid both Washington QBs for the rest of this year.
