Cushing might not miss games after all

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 10:30

Someone told Texans HC Bill O'Brien about this week's report that LB Brian Cushing would miss at least a game because of knee trouble. Coach says don't buy it. “I wasn’t aware of that report. I was trying to figure out how to get a first down against the Tennessee Titans, because it was third-down night,” O’Brien said, per the Houston Chronicle. “And, secondly, there is no accuracy to that report.” O'Brien said that Cushing is "getting better every day" and traveling with the team to Tennessee. He said the LB missed practice time to "ease him back into the week" after the Monday night game at Pittsburgh. We'll keep an eye on Cushing's status for Sunday's game and have added him back into the Week 8 LB rankings.

Does Green have a chance to play Week 8?

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 10:25

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is listed as doubtful for this weekend's game against the Ravens.  But HC Marvin Lewis sounded more optimistic than expected about Green after Friday's practice.  "He looks good and each day of this week, he has looked better and better, and [Friday], he looked like football form," Lewis said.  While Green didn't officially practice this week, he went through "rehab and conditioning drills that tested his speed, agility, quickness and cut-ability," per insider Coley Harvey.  Green owners shouldn't be counting on having him this week, but don't completely rule him out either.  We'll find out his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Kendricks questionable for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 10:17

Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks is officially questionable for Sunday's game at Arizona after putting in another limited practice Friday. He has been with the team all week after announcing his return to action via his personal website at the beginning of the week. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, however, "some of his teammates" said Thursday that they don't expect the ILB to be ready for the game. We'll obviously track his gameday status. Unfortunately, the late afternoon kickoff will likely mean many IDP owners need to go in a different direction. That might be best anyway, given that it would be Kendricks' 1st game action since Week 2.

Greene probable for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 10:00

Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) is probable for Sunday’s game against the Texans. He was averaging 8.8 carries per game before going down in Week 5. We’re expecting Bishop Sankey to remain Tennessee’s lead back, but Greene could certainly siphon a handful of carries, including goal-line work. Sankey, averaging just 4.0 yards per carry, can’t afford to lose volume.

No final decision on RG3's Week 8 status?

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 09:46

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Friday that a decision on QB Robert Griffin playing against the Cowboys on Monday night will not be made until game day.  This comes a day after Gruden said that QB Colt McCoy would start.  It looks like a case of a HC trying to keep his opponent guessing.  McCoy has received the majority of the 1st-team reps in practice this week and remains a virtual lock to be under center on Monday night.  RG3 has a chance to return for Week 9, but the most likely scenario remains a Week 11 return, after Washington's bye week.

Green doubtful for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 09:40

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens.  There was early-week optimism that Green would return for this one, but he didn't progress as well as hoped over the past few days.  He'll now aim for a Week 9 return.  WR Mohamed Sanu gets another game as Cincinnati's top dog, but he's just a WR3 against Ravens shutdown CB Jimmy Smith. 

Daniels out for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 09:34

Ravens TE Owen Daniels will miss Sunday's game against the Bengals after having a "clean-up procedure" on his knee, according to insider Jamison Hensley.  His status beyond Week 8 is uncertain.  It's bad timing for Daniels, who had a prime matchup vs. Cincinnati's league-worst TE defense.  TE Crockett Gillmore is expected to start in Daniels' place.  The 3rd-round rookie has caught all 3 of his targets for 29 yards this season -- all coming over the past 2 weeks.  He's worth a look as a bottom-priced play in daily fantasy, but you should be able to do better in your season-long lineup.

Richardson questionable for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 08:59

Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers.  He didn't practice all week, though, so he's obviously in danger of sitting out.  And if Richardson plays, he'll be at risk of aggravating the bum hammy.  Throw in the 4:25 pm ET kickoff, and T-Rich is best off on fantasy benches this week.  RB Ahmad Bradshaw should be locked into fantasy lineups regardless of Richardson's status.

Wayne ruled out for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 08:56

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers.  The team tried to play coy all week, but Wayne was never expected to play.  He was originally expected to miss 1-2 weeks, so consider him questionable for Week 9.  WR Hakeem Nicks is the best bet to start in Wayne's place this Sunday, but rookie WR Donte Moncrief could also play an increased role.  Consider Nicks a boom/bust WR3.  Moncrief is only worth considering as a value play in daily games.

Starks probable for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 08:37

Packers RB James Starks (ankle) is probable for Sunday night’s game against the Saints. He practiced on Thursday and Friday, so the ankle shouldn’t be an issue. Starks is averaging about 10 touches over his last 3 games. That type of workload makes him a RB3 flier in this week’s plus matchup.

A.J. Green misses practice Friday

Fantasy Football Today - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 08:30

Bengals receiver doesn't practice all week

A.J. Green not practicing again today. Have to think that will rule him out for Sunday. Will get official injury report around 2. (Paul Dehner Jr. via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Bad news for Green owners as it appears likely that he will sit this week. If he does, Mohamed Sanu remains on the WR2 radar against the Bengals.

Sproles questionable for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 08:15

Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.  He put in 3 limited practices this week, though, and signs point to him playing.  The 4:05 pm ET start time makes starting Sproles in fantasy a bit risky, but if active, he'll be a nice PPR RB3 or flex against a Cardinals team that's much better against the run than the pass.

Douglas questionable for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 07:33

Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) got in 2 limited practices this week and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.  He's been out since Week 3.  Douglas shouldn't be in fantasy lineups if he ends up playing vs. the league's #5 WR defense.

Pettigrew doubtful for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 06:43

Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (foot) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Falcons.  He didn't practice all week.  TEs Eric Ebron (hamstring) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) have already been ruled out.  It leaves Detroit with Kellen Davis and Jordan Thompson at TE. Neither guy is a fantasy option. 

Bush doubtful for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 06:41

Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Falcons.  It looks like he suffered a setback on Wednesday because he didn't practice on Thursday or Friday.  RB Theo Riddick is set to return from his hamstring injury and will play the Bush role this weekend.  He was impressive in his brief Week 6 showing, hauling in 5 balls for 75 yards and a TD.  Riddick is on the RB3/flex radar in PPR leagues.  Joique Bell will serve as Detroit's lead back and is a must-start against a leaky Falcons defense.

Johnson questionable for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 06:37

Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.  He put in 3 limited practices this week and seems to have a legitimate chance to play.  A final decision probably won't be made until pregame warmups, but we'll know Johnson status by 8:30 am ET.  Both Johnson and the Lions have said numerous times that he wouldn't return until he could be effective again.  So if Johnson plays this weekend, he should be in fantasy lineups.

Campbell returns

Draft Sharks - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 19:39

Cardinals DE Calais Campbell returned to the field Thursday for the 1st time since an illegal chop block knocked him out of the Week 5 matchup with Denver. He put in a limited practice, which doesn't necessarily mean he'll be ready to face the Eagles. We'll keep an eye on his status this week, but don't be surprised if the Cards ease him back in a bit even if Campbell does return to game action.

Bengals LBs getting healthy

Draft Sharks - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 19:30

The Bengals have gotten starting LBs Vontaze Burfict and Emmanuel Lamur back in practice this week. Both Burfict (neck) and Lamur (shoulder) followed limited practices Wednesday with full workouts Thursday. That certainly points to both being likely to play on Sunday. MLB Rey Maualuga remains out and appears likely to miss the rematch with Baltimore, which should leave a starting role for Vincent Rey once again. The question, however, is who will stay on the field for passing downs. That's been Burfict and Lamur when all starters are healthy. But might either OLB need a little break this week, leaving Rey to play those snaps? We'll keep an eye out for any signal. But barring some revelation, we'd have to assume that Burfict and Lamur remain the 3-down guys. Thus, they become the better IDP options over Rey, who carries upside whenever he steps into a full-time role.

Burnett a question mark for Week 8

Draft Sharks - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 19:18

Packers S Morgan Burnett missed a 2nd straight practice Thursday because of a calf injury, and HC Mike McCarthy admitted that he's worried about the starter's availability.  "My concern for Morgan is higher than it was yesterday," McCarthy said after Thursday's practice, per "Hopefully with today and what goes on tomorrow, we'll see if he can do anything Saturday." We'll see what happens with Burnett on Friday and Saturday, but Burnett looks quite risky for IDP owners this week and has tumbled down our Week 8 DB rankings. His absence would only help the upside for rookie S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Robinson dealing with forearm injury

Draft Sharks - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 15:42

Saints RB Khiry Robinson has missed the first 2 practices of the week with a forearm injury.  He hasn't expressed much concern, but his status for Sunday night's game seems iffy.  We'll update Robinson status again tomorrow.
