Lynch active

Draft Sharks - Sun, 11/16/2014 - 08:36

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (calf) is active for today’s game against the Chiefs. HC Pete Carroll conceded earlier this week that Lynch is “banged up,” but he was never in danger of missing this game. Start him against a Kansas City defense giving up 5.2 yards per carry to RBs.

Rudolph active

Draft Sharks - Sun, 11/16/2014 - 08:34

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) is active for today’s game against the Bears. That’s a juicy matchup, but we’re not expecting Rudolph to play a full slate of snaps. It leaves him as just a bye-week fill in or cheap play in daily games.

Marshall active

Draft Sharks - Sun, 11/16/2014 - 08:33

Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. B-Marsh won’t be at 100% today but is worth keeping in season-long lineups.

C.J. Anderson expected to start

Fantasy Football Today - Sun, 11/16/2014 - 07:45

Monte Ball will be the No.2 running back

C.J. Anderson did enough last week in the Broncos' win at Oakland to earn his first NFL start here Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. Anderson will start while Montee Ball, who grew up about 25 miles from St. Louis, will be the No. 2 back. Ball is returning from a groin injury that sidelined him the previous five games. (Denver Post)

FF Today's Take: This has been the conventional wisdom all week. Anderson and Ball faces a Rams defense that ranks 23rd in fantasy points allowed to running backs, a below average matchup.

Manning plans to play in 2015 unless ...

Draft Sharks - Sun, 11/16/2014 - 06:50

Broncos QB Peyton Manning plans to return for 2015, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  But he could change his mind if Denver wins the Super Bowl this season.  Manning is obviously still operating at a high-level.  But he turns 39 in March and has that history of neck problems.  Dynasty owners can only treat him as a year-to-year asset at this point.

Texans expect Foster to play Week 12

Draft Sharks - Sun, 11/16/2014 - 06:46

Texans HC Bill O'Brien expects to get RB Arian Foster (groin) back for Week 12, according to ESPN's Bob Holtzman.  Foster's injury is reportedly a 2-week deal, and it happened 2 weeks ago today.  We'll track his progress this coming week, but owners can tentatively expect to have Foster back in lineups for Week 12's game against the Bengals' leaky run defense.

Moeaki "part of the game plan" in Week 11

Draft Sharks - Sun, 11/16/2014 - 05:35

Seahawks TE Tony Moeaki is "part of the game plan" against the Chiefs," HC Pete Carroll said.  Seattle signed Moeaki a couple weeks ago, but he hasn't been active for a game yet.  “We were really excited about him first week and thought to play him, but we felt that he would be too limited because he just didn’t have enough time to learn stuff,” Carroll said of Moeaki. “He’s picked things up and practiced with the first group."  TEs Luke Willson (ankle) and Cooper Helfet (knee) are both banged-up, giving Moeaki an opportunity to emerge.  He's always been an intriguing talent but has been unable to stay healthy.  We'll keep an eye on him today, but Moeaki shouldn't be in any fantasy lineups.

Bush won't play Week 11

Draft Sharks - Sun, 11/16/2014 - 05:25

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) won't play against the Cardinals today.  Bush has been ineffective on that bum ankle, so Detroit is holding him out until he's closer to 100%.  Theo Riddick will step in as the Lions' pass-catching RB, making him an intriguing RB3 or flex in PPR leagues.  Riddick racked up 13 catches, 149 yards and 2 TDs with Bush out for 2 games earlier this year.

Lynch expected to play

Draft Sharks - Sun, 11/16/2014 - 04:55

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that teammates and friends expect Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch to play today against the Chiefs, despite his "questionable" listing with a calf injury. That's been our expectation, too, and Lynch obviously belongs in all fantasy lineups when active. He could also gain value in daily-fantasy lineups if other players are scared off by the calf and a deceptively positive matchup. The Chiefs have yet to allow a rushing TD this season, but they're also yielding 5.0 yards per carry to RBs.

Gipson clears concussion protocol

Draft Sharks - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 19:42

Browns S Tashaun Gipson passed through the league's concussion protocol Saturday and was upgraded to probable for Sunday's matchup with the Texans. The NFL's leader in INTs faces a high-upside matchup in the 1st career start for Houston QB Ryan Mallett.

Bush reportedly out Week 11

Draft Sharks - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 17:47

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports that Lions RB Reggie Bush will miss Sunday's game at Arizona with his injured ankle. Bush had been listed as questionable, so it's not a shocking development, and the early decision helps fantasy owners. RB Theo Riddick now becomes a nice upside play in PPR leagues, while Joique Bell faces less competition for carries in a poor matchup. Don't stick Bush in a fantasy lineup until he proves he can make it through a full game.

Verrett done; Ingram returns

Draft Sharks - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 17:44

The Chargers have placed rookie CB Jason Verrett on season-ending IR as he heads toward shoulder surgery. That means San Diego will finish the year without a guy currently tied for 9th in coverage rating at his position by Pro Football Focus. On the plus side, though, the Chargers activated OLB Melvin Ingram on Saturday from short-term IR after a hip injury. Ingram figures to have a little rust to shake off, but he can only help 1 of the league's worst pass rushes.

Walker questionable for Week 11

Draft Sharks - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 14:04

Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Steelers.  He put in a limited practice on Saturday but still needs to pass through a couple more stages of the concussion protocol.  We'd consider him worse than 50-50 to play on Monday and wouldn't be waiting for him in fantasy leagues.

McCluster questionable for Week 11

Draft Sharks - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 14:03

Titans RB Dexter McCluster (knee) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Steelers. He put in 3 limited practices this week.  McCluster isn't a fantasy option, but his absence might mean a few extra touches for RB Bishop Sankey.

Arian Foster officially ruled out, Blue to start

Fantasy Football Today - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 11:30

Foster won't make the trip to Cleveland

Houston Texans star running back Arian Foster has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns because of a groin injury. Rookie Alfred Blue will start in Foster's place Sunday against Cleveland. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Multiple reports yesterday suggested Foster would not play this week and now it is official. Blue will get the start at running back for the Texans. He'll face a Browns' defense that ranks middle of the pack (17th) in fantasy points allowed to running backs.

Peyton Hillis placed on IR, concussion

Fantasy Football Today - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 10:00

Rashad Jennings to return in Week 11

The Giants injured reserve list keeps getting longer. The latest is veteran running back Peyton Hillis, who suffered a concussion in the first half Sunday in Seattle. Hillis was "not good" and sent home from the Giants facility earlier in the week, according to coach Tom Coughlin. (NJ.com)

FF Today's Take: Rashad Jennings will return to the lineup this week and be backed up by rookie Andre Williams. Hillis played a minimal role in the Giants offense, totaling 26 carries, 115 yards; 10 receptions 87 yards.

Foster ruled out for Week 11

Draft Sharks - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 09:43

The Texans have officially ruled out RB Arian Foster (groin) for Sunday's game against the Browns.  Considering that he didn't practice at all this week and was ruled out on Saturday, he's no lock to be ready for Week 12.  RB Alfred Blue will serve as Houston's lead back tomorrow.  The rookie figures to see about 15 touches against a Cleveland defense allowing 4.6 yards per carry to RBs.  Blue is a lower-end RB2 in season-long leagues and a nice cheap play in daily games.

Hillis placed on IR

Draft Sharks - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 09:06

The Giants have placed RB Peyton Hillis (concussion) on IR, ending his 2014 season.  Hillis' concussion last week was his 2nd in the past year.  He hasn't been much of a fantasy factor since that big 2010 season that landed him on the cover of Madden.  The G-Men will move forward with Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams as their top 2 RBs.

Jackson expected to play Week 12

Draft Sharks - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 09:02

Bills HC Doug Marrone said that RB Fred Jackson (groin) could have played against the Dolphins had the game been on Sunday.  That means he should be ready for Week 12.  Jackson will have had a full 2 weeks to rest up before that one, so consider him the early favorite to lead the Bills backfield in touches against the Jets.

Lofton questionable for Week 11

Draft Sharks - Fri, 11/14/2014 - 20:20

Saints LB Curtis Lofton is questionable for Sunday's meeting with the Bengals. He returned for a limited practice Friday after missing Wednesday's and Thursday's workouts with a sprained ankle. We'll see if that ankle is ready for Sunday.
