Green "has a shot" to play Week 8

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 08:53

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) "has a shot" to return for Week 8, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer. Green received "positive" news when he visited his specialist on Friday.  He was able to get on the field in pregame warmups today.  Cincinnati would love to get Green back for next week's showdown with the Ravens.

Shazier questionable for Monday night

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 08:29

Steelers LB Ryan Shazier remained limited Saturday in his return from a knee sprain and is questionable for Monday night's game against the Texans.  There's certainly IDP upside in the matchup if he returns, but the late kickoff means that you probably can't wait for him.  Let's hope that Shazier at least puts in a full game to make himself useful for IDP owners in the coming weeks.

Riley out again

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 08:24

Washington LB Perry Riley will miss his 2nd straight game with a knee injury today against the Titans. He put in limited practices all week but will instead watch Will Compton start in his place again.

Robinson starting Week 7

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 07:42

Jaguars RB Denard Robinson is listed as the starter for today's game against the Browns.  We'd still bet on RB Storm Johnson leading the team in carries, but this is a reminder that the rookie is a shaky RB3 or flex play.  

Willson inactive

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 07:41

Seahawks TE Luke Willson (groin) is inactive for today's game against the Rams.  With TE Zach Miller (ankle) also out, Seattle is left with Cooper Helfet as the lead TE.  The former undrafted free agent caught his first 2 passes last week.  He's not a fantasy option.  WR Doug Baldwin could easily see 8+ targets today.  He's a sneaky WR3.

Boykin active

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 07:35

Packers WR Jarrett Boykin (groin) is active for today’s game against the Panthers. He’s likely lost the #3 WR job to rookie Davante Adams and isn’t a fantasy option.

Locker inactive

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 07:34

Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) is inactive for today’s game against the Redskins. Charlie Whitehurst gets the start vs. the league’s 32nd-ranked QB defense, but he remains a shaky QB2.

Stewart active

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 07:33

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He has a good chance to see 15+ touches, putting him on the RB3/flex radar. RBs DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Fozzy Whittaker (quad) are inactive. RBs Darrin Reaves (questionable, calf) and Chris Ogbonnaya will play behind Stewart.

Ebron inactive

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 07:31

Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Saints. TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) is also out. That should mean a few extra targets for TE Brandon Pettigrew, but he remains a desperation fantasy play.

Bush active

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 07:31

Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He’s averaged 14.3 touches in his 4 full games this season. Bush is a solid RB2 in a plus matchup. RB Theo Riddick (hamstring) is inactive.

Johnson inactive

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 07:30

Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Saints. He did some running prior to the game but didn’t seem close to playing. Consider him no better than 50-50 for Week 8.

Benjamin active

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 07:29

Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) is officially active for today’s game against the Packers. The rookie has scored in 4 of 6 games this season and should be in Week 7 lineups as a strong WR2.

Ingram active

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 07:24

Saints RB Mark Ingram (hand) is active for today’s game against the Lions. In his 1st action since Week 2 and in a tough matchup, consider Ingram a RB3 or flex option.

Rice could be reinstated within 4 weeks

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 06:05

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora hears that RB Ray Rice could be reinstated within the next 4 weeks.  A date for Rice's appeal hearing has been set, and a decision is expected quickly.  Rice's legal team is arguing that, as a 1st-time offender, his suspension should have been no more than 6 games.  La Canfora has spoken to multiple legal experts who believe that Rice has an "exceedingly strong case."  Of course, even if he's reinstated, Rice would need a team to take on the PR nightmare that would come with signing him.  Considering he's no longer an elite RB, that's no lock to happen.  We wouldn't bother adding Rice to fantasy rosters.

Green ruled out Week 7

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 05:58

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis confirmed to ESPN's Lindsay Czarniak that WR A.J. Green (toe) will not play against the Colts today.  Green was listed as doubtful but didn't practice all week and never had a shot to play.  There's still no timetable for his return.

Benjamin cleared to play Week 7

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 04:22

Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) has been cleared to play against the Packers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  He put in a full practice on Friday, so we're not worried about the rookie being rusty.  Benjamin is a strong WR2 against a Packers secondary definitely without CB Sam Shields (knee) and possibly without CB Tramon Williams (ankle).

Graham expected to play Week 7

Draft Sharks - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 04:17

Insiders Adam Schefter, Ian Rapoport and Albert Breer all report that Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) is expected to play against the Lions today.  All 3 guys add that a final decision won't be made until after pregame warmups.  And Schefter hears that Graham is not expected to start.  He'll likely be limited to obvious passing downs and red-zone snaps.  But he's still capable of doing plenty of damage.  Note that in 5 games playing less than 55% of the snaps last year, Graham posted lines of 10-135, 3-37-2, 5-59, 5-73-1 and 5-71-1.  Click here to see where he sits in our Week 7 TE Rankings.

Kelvin Benjamin cleared to play

Fantasy Football Today - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 02:11

Panthers WR gets concussion clearance from doctor

Panthers rookie WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) has been cleared, source says. He'll play today vs. the Packers. (Ian Rapoport via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: It sounds like Benjamin will be on the field today against Green Bay. He's a solid WR2 but keep in mind the Packers haven't allowed any wide receiver to gain more than 82 yards (Calvin Johnson).

Jimmy Graham expected to play, may not start

Fantasy Football Today - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 01:27

Will test shoulder in pregame warmups

So for now, Saints TE Jimmy Graham is expected to play, though not expected to start due to shoulder injury. Will test injury in pregame. (Adam Schefter via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: The good thing here is, we will know soon whether or not Graham is active for the game. If he is, it will difficult for Graham owners not put him in their lineups considering he will likely be used around the goaline. More to come on Graham's status later this morning...

Benjamin travels with team to Green Bay

Draft Sharks - Sat, 10/18/2014 - 16:06

Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin made the trip with his team to Green Bay for Sunday's game against the Packers.  We still haven't heard if the rookie has been cleared to play, but it sure looks like he has.  "All signs point to him playing," insider Joe Person tweeted Saturday.  We'll find out Benjamin's official status by noon ET on Sunday.  He'l be a solid WR2 play if active.
