Lions "not planning" on having Bush

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 04:46

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the Lions are "not planning" on having RB Reggie Bush (ankle) for today's game against the Vikings.  No surprise there.  Bush is listed as questionable but was unable to practice all week.  Look for Joique Bell to serve as Detroit's lead back and see 15+ touches today.  RBs Theo Riddick and George Winn will mix in behind Bell.

Graham to miss 2-3 games

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 04:43

Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) is expected to miss 2-3 games, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  The bye week saved him a game, but it sounds like New Orleans will be without Graham for games against the Lions and Packers.  Ben Watson figures to step in as the Saints' starting TE.  Josh Hill could see some additional work, too.  Neither guy will be a strong fantasy play, though.  Potential waiver-wire adds such as Dwayne Allen, Heath Miller and Owen Daniels will be better bets.  Graham owners should also check to see if Jordan Reed is available.

Jackson, Evans will play Week 6

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 04:08

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Bucs will have both starting WRs for today's game against the Ravens.  WR Vincent Jackson (ribs) only put in a limited practice on Friday, but the rib issue isn't believed to be a major concern.  He's worth keeping in fantasy lineups as a WR2.  Evans (groin) got in 3 limited practices and will return after missing just 1 game.  The rookie is a risky WR3 for Week 6.

Jackson "good to go"

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 04:05

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Bills RB Fred Jackson is "good to go" for today's game against the Patriots.  Fred Jax was limited early in the week with a minor ankle injury and then sat out Friday with an illness.  Neither ailment should be a major issue today.  Jackson is a strong fantasy play against New England's 23rd-ranked RB defense

Palmer the favorite to start Week 6?

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 04:03

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Carson Palmer is the Cardinals QB "most likely" to start against the Redskins this afternoon.  Palmer reportedly made major progress late in the week and took the 1st-team snaps in Friday's practice.  Schefter adds that a final decision on Arizona's Week 6 starter won't be made until a couple hours before game time.  If you can afford to wait on Palmer, he'll be a high-risk/high-reward fantasy play against the league's worst QB defense.

Brady will start Week 6

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/12/2014 - 03:58

ESPN's Adam Schefter is the latest to confirm that Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) will start against the Bills today.  Brady tweaked his ankle in Friday's practice, but there's been nothing to suggest it's a concern.  He never moved in our Week 6 QB Rankings.

Vernon Davis unsure if he'll play Monday night

Fantasy Football Today - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 19:00

No setbacks in practice

Tight end Vernon Davis made it through practice Saturday, the third straight day he did so without any setback from a back injury he suffered two games ago. "I don't feel like I'm where I need to be at the moment," Davis said Saturday, "but I'm getting there." He said he will huddle with the head athletic trainer on Sunday and decide whether he is healthy enough to play against the St. Louis Rams on Monday night. (San Francisco Mercury News)

FF Today's Take: Vance McDonald and Derek Carrier would fill-in if Davis doesn't play. The fact that Davis didn't have any setbacks this week is a good sign, but he is no sure thing to suit up Monday night and we may not know his status before the early games kick off today.

Stacy probable for Week 6

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 13:42

Rams RB Zac Stacy (calf) is probable for Monday night's game against the 49ers.  He put in full practices on Friday and Saturday, so that calf shouldn't be a concern.  But San Francisco ranks #1 in fantasy points allowed to RBs, making Stacy a low-end RB2 for Week 6.

Davis questionable for Week 6

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 13:06

49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Rams.  He put in 3 limited practices this week but still isn't sure if he'll be able to play in prime time.  “I don't feel like I'm where I need to be at the moment, but I'm getting there," Davis said Saturday.  He added that he wants to make a decision on his status on Sunday, but we might not find out what that decision is until inactives are announced Monday night.  Davis should be on fantasy benches for now.  We'll see if we find anything out tomorrow morning.

Lattimore still part of 49ers' plans

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 11:41

49ers RB Marcus Lattimore is still in the team's 2014 plans, according to insider Matt Maiocco.  Lattimore is currently on the NFI list and can begin practicing after this week.  San Francisco reportedly plans on waiting until after their Week 7 bye to get Lattimore on the practice field, though.  They'd then have another 21 days to activate him.  We wouldn't consider that a lock to happen.  And even if it does, Lattimore would be 3rd on the depth chart behind Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde.

Brady travels to Buffalo sans boot

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 11:37

Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) traveled with his teammates to Buffalo with a boot on his injured ankle.  It's further confirmation that he'll play against the Bills on Sunday.  Brady is listed as questionable, but there's been no indication that his ankle injury is serious.  Per insider Jeff Howe, Brady has been "questionable" 4 previous times in his career and is 3-1 in those games.

Reed to play "a decent amount"

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 07:45

Redskins insider John Keim expects TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) to play "a decent amount" if he's active for tomorrow's game against the Cardinals.  "He apparently looked good during the week," Keim added.  The toughest part about Reed's Week 6 fantasy profile is that we probably won't know his official status until 3 pm ET.  If he's active, though, he'll be a risk/reward TE1.

Johnson to get "most of the carries"

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 07:43

John Oehser of the Jaguars' official website guesses that RB Jordan Todman will start Sunday's game against the Titans, but that RB Storm Johnson will get "most of the carries."  It'd make sense for Jacksonville to give the veteran the starting nod, but Johnson has a clear talent edge over Todman and looked like the Jaguars' best RB last week.  We're expecting him to carry somewhere between 10-15 times tomorrow, putting him on the RB3/flex radar.  Todman and Denard Robinson are unlikely to reach double-digit touches.

Jones downgraded to out

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 06:42

The Bengals have ruled WR Marvin Jones out for Sunday's game against the Panthers with his ankle sprain.  Jones had been listed as questionable but missed practice all week.  No fantasy owners should have been planning on using him.  This confirmation of his status boosts the upside for WR Mohamed Sanu a bit, as the Bengals also seem likely to be without WR A.J. Green.  RB Giovani Bernard also only looks better as a receiver given all the injuries.  And an offense likely to go run-heavy might even pump some fantasy value into #2 RB Jeremy Hill in a positive rushing matchup.

Moore expected to return

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 04:07

Raiders OLB Sio Moore is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.  But Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Moore will play unless he suffers a setback during Saturday's walkthrough.  An ankle sprain has kept the 2nd-year LB out since Week 2, but his big fantasy start to the year makes him worth getting back into most IDP lineups right away.  If your roster's deep, you could wait a game to make sure Moore is all the way back.

Briggs out vs. Falcons

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 04:01

Bears OLB Lance Briggs has been ruled out for Sunday's trip to Atlanta because of a rib injury.  Second-year LB Khaseem Greene looks like the best bet to start in his place, but we'd look elsewhere for an IDP fill-in.

Chancellor a game-time decision

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 03:53

HC Pete Carroll says Seahawks S Kam Chancellor is a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with Dallas because of a hip injury, according to the Seattle Times.  The injury is reportedly to the opposite hip from the one that required offseason surgery.  Chancellor missed both days of practice this week in the short turnaround after Monday night's win over Washington.  The 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday will make it tough for many IDP owners to wait on Chancellor in a high-upside matchup.

Several Bills defenders questionable

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 03:45

The Bills list defensive starters LB Nigel Bradham, LB Brandon Spikes, DT Kyle Williams and S Aaron Williams as questionable for Sunday's battle with the Patriots.  WGR 550 reports that Bradham is "likely to be a true game-time decision," with Williams even less likely to play.  IDP owners should plan to be without both a week after each sat out the Lions win with a knee injury.  If Bradham doesn't play, it'll help the fantasy outlook for rookie LB Preston Brown.  We've seen no indication that MLB Spikes won't play, but his inconsistent playing time makes him a very iffy IDP prospect.  Williams put in limited practices all week despite a wrist injury.  We'd bet on him playing against the Pats.

Burfict back

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 03:31

Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict put in full practices all week and is probable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.  Burfict missed the past 2 contests with lingering concussion symptoms, which came after he returned from a Week 1 concussion.  Let's hope the added caution this time around helps him to stay on the field.  Last year's league tackle leader is worth sticking back into most IDP lineups right away.  We've bumped him up to starter range in our Week 6 IDP rankings.

Eagles expect to have 1 ILB

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/11/2014 - 03:27

Eagles LB DeMeco Ryans is officially questionable for Sunday night's clash with the Giants because of the groin injury he suffered in Week 5.  The veteran said he expects to play, though we'd try to find a safer option to go in IDP lineups -- especially considering the late kickoff for the Eagles game.  Philly will once again miss other ILB Mychal Kendricks, who has yet to return since suffering a calf injury in Week 2.
