|Ezekiel Elliott suspension back on|
2nd Circuit has denied Elliott's latest request
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 9 2017, 3:37 pm
|That was fast: 2nd Circuit has denied Ezekiel Elliott's request to have suspension continue to be lifted. Suspension is back on. As predicted, once case got to appellate court, NFL in good shape with precedent. (Andrew Brandt on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The saga continues. With this ruling today it appears the NFL's 6-game suspension is back on. If Alfred Morris, Darren McFadden or Rod Smith are available in your league, they are all viable options on the waiver wire. All were expected to see action last week with Morris expected to get the start.
|Paul Richardson expected to play, could be limited|
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 9 2017, 1:15 pm
|Seahawks WR Paul Richardson, listed as questionable for tonight due to a groin injury, is expected to play but could be limited some, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Richardson is dealing with a groin injury and coming off a short week, he's difficult to trust in fantasy lineups. He'll also face Patrick Peterson about half the time, making Richardson an easy fade in Week 10.
|Forte misses second straight practice|
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 9 2017, 11:45 am
|Jets practice report (early version): RB Matt Forte (knee) wasn't spotted at practice, the second straight day he's sitting out. This is officially a concern. It also appears that CB Morris Claiborne (foot) and DE Mo Wilkerson (foot, shoulder) won't practice. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Forte's knee swelled up causing him to miss practice yesterday as well. We'll see how he does Friday but he's trending in the wrong direction for Sunday. If he sits, Bilal Powell and rookie Elijah McGuire would handle running back duties. Powell would be in the RB2 conversation against the Bucs.
|Chris Hogan misses practice Wednesday|
Arm still in a sling
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 8 2017, 3:30 pm
|Wide receiver Chris Hogan (shoulder), right tackle Marcus Cannon (ankle) and defensive tackle Malcom Brown (ankle) missed another practice today, leaving each player's status in question for the Patriots’ trip to Denver this weekend. (Boston Herald)|
FFToday's Take: Fantasy owners should have plan B in place for Hogan who is still dealing with a shoulder injury. Expect Brandin Cooks, Danny Amendola and Phillip Dorsett to be the top 3 wideouts for Brady against the Broncos.
|Martellus Bennett out for Week 10|
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 8 2017, 2:10 pm
|Packers coach Mike McCarthy says TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) is out this week vs. #Bears. He’s still getting opinions on his injury. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Bennett was scratched in Week 9 as well. Given his week-to-week nature and lack of explosiveness in the Packers passing game, Bennett can be safely dropped in most 12-team redraft leagues. Richard Rodgers and Lance Kendricks will hold down tight end duties but neither are viable fantasy options.
|Reed and Crowder limited on Wednesday|
Redskins receivers do individual drills
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 8 2017, 2:00 pm
|Redskins TE Jordan Reed, G Brandon Scherff, WR Jamison Crowder, TE Niles Paul, C Spencer Long, G Shawn Lauvao all are going through individual drills. All did not play Sunday. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Reed and Crowder missed Week 9 but hope to be back on the field in Week 10 against the Vikings. Both are dealing with hamstring injuries.
| Dez Bryant misses practice Wednesday|
WR Terrance Williams limited in practice
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 8 2017, 12:00 pm
|The Cowboys will kick off their practice week without wide receiver Dez Bryant or left tackle Tyron Smith on the field.
Both players emerged from Sunday’s victory over the Chiefs with injuries and coach Jason Garrett said that they will not be practicing on Wednesday. Garrett said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, that they hope Smith will be able to practice at some point this week after hurting his groin against Kansas City. Bryant hurt his ankle and knee during the game and Garrett described the latter injury as a bruise on Wednesday. Wide receiver Terrance Williams also hurt his ankle and Garrett said he will be limited in practice.
FFToday's Take: Dez Bryant's injury appears more likely to keep him limited or completely out of action for Week 10 so be sure to monitor his status throughout the week. Williams is coming off his best game of the year after catching all nine of his targets for 141 receiving yards.
|Sam Bradford lands on IR|
Teddy Bridgewater activated
By: Jake Gordon | Nov 8 2017, 11:38 am
|We haven't seen Sam Bradford since early October -- and we won't see him again this season.
The Vikings quarterback had his troublesome knee scoped by Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday to clean it out, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per sources informed of the situation. With the return of Teddy Bridgewater from the physically unable to perform list, Bradford was placed on injured reserve.
FFToday's Take: Minnesota has been winning with Case Keenum keeping the offense rolling for fantasy owners. Keenum figures to maintain his starting role this week on the road against a Redskins defense that has given up 24.2 points per game in 2017 (ninth worst in the NFL). Teddy Bridgewater may force his way back into the lineup in the near future if he can prove he is fully recovered from his knee injury. He is worth monitoring and could provide a fantasy boost down the stretch.
|DeShaun Watson undergoes surgery |
No additional damage found
By: Jake Gordon | Nov 8 2017, 11:00 am
|Doctors did not find any additional damage in the knee of Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson while they performed ACL surgery Wednesday morning in Houston, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. (ESPN.com)|
FFToday's Take: With the surgery complete, Watson will begin his recovery to get back onto the field for 2018 season. In the meantime, Houston will continue to deploy Tom Savage as their quarterback. The 2014 fourth-round draft pick threw for 219 yards and one touchdown in Week 9's loss to the Colts.
|Packers lose T Bryan Baluga for season|
By: Jake Gordon | Nov 7 2017, 10:00 pm
|GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Bryan Bulaga sustained a season-ending knee injury in Monday night's loss to the Detroit Lions, ensuring the Green Bay Packers' preferred offensive line will have played together for less than a full game all year.
Bulaga suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament, ESPN confirmed on Tuesday. NFL Network was first to report that the 28-year-old, eighth-year veteran tore his ACL.
FFToday's Take: Add Bryan Baluga to the list of crippling injuries on the offensive side of the ball for the Packers. Green Bay's offense will continue to sputter as they limp forward without Aaron Rodgers. The loss of one of their best offensive lineman comes at a bad time with the Packers playing on the road against the Bears this week. Continue to downgrade Green Bay's fantasy players for Week 10.
|Martavis Bryant back working with first team|
Steelers giving embattled WR prime reps in practice this week.
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Nov 7 2017, 11:10 am
|Martavis Bryant was back working with the first-team offense Monday when the Steelers resumed practice after a four-day break on their bye.
After being benched against the Detroit Lions on Oct. 29 because of his controversial social media posts, Bryant is looking for a chance to rejoin his teammates on the field. He has been given no indication the benching will extend past that one game. (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review)|
FFToday's Take: You can go ahead and give Bryant a look as a WR3/4 or flex in super-deep formats and large-field GPPs in DFS in a great match-up with Indy, but don't be surprised if JuJu Smith-Schuster out-snaps him and outperforms him the rest of the way in 2017. In standard leagues, JSS is the better play.
|Panthers HC: "We believe" in Jonathan Stewart|
Shakeup at RB duties still looming with Christian McCaffrey shining
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Nov 7 2017, 11:05 am
|“We believe in Jonathan," coach Ron Rivera said Monday. “That is why we brought him back in and gave him the football again. That's why we gave him the carry at the end of the game as well."
The Panthers might believe in Jonathan Stewart, but it might be time to admit that he has become a complementary piece to rookie Christian McCaffrey, instead of vice versa. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Stewart fumbled twice against the Falcons and played his fewest snaps of the season, but Rivera is till stubbornly giving the veteran plenty of early down carries. He has to say this, but the writing is on the wall that McCaffrey is easily the better fantasy option and should be deployed in all formats as a RB3 or better moving forward.
|Elliott's next day in court coming Thursday|
Emergency injunction motion at the Second Circuit Court of Appeals
By: Doug Orth | Nov 6 2017, 6:00 pm
|BREAKING: Second Circuit schedules oral argument on Ezekiel Elliott emergency injunction motion for Thursday at 2 pm. (Daniel Wallach on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We know roughly as much about Zeke's playing status now as we did back in August. Elliott's most recent stay was not given an end date, so he will be allowed to play until the three-man Second Circuit panel makes their decision, which could take days or weeks. It's unclear if the NFL or Elliott has more legal moves left, but owners should still err on the side of caution and expect the second-year back to serve his suspension until he is cleared for good.
|DeMarco Murray battling knee problem|
HC says RB past shoulder and hamstring issues
By: Doug Orth | Nov 6 2017, 5:50 pm
|HC Mike Mularkey: DeMarco Murray gets right back in, doesn't let anything hold him back. If he's effective we'll allow him to continue to play. (Paul Kuharsky)|
FFToday's Take: Regardless of what Mularkey says, Murray has not been effective for the bulk of the season. He is averaging 3.3 yards per carry or less over his last three games, and the Titans' offense in general has been tough to watch for most of the season. But since it appears the Titans have no plans to let Murray get healthy, owners in most leagues should consider him a low-end flex option.
|Julio Jones battling lower leg injury|
Expects to be limited throughout the week
By: Doug Orth | Nov 6 2017, 5:30 pm
|Dan Quinn said Julio Jones was dealing with a lower leg injury in the game, will be limited this week. (AtlantaFalcons.com)|
FFToday's Take: Jones likely aggravated many a fantasy owner by dropping a potential 39-yard touchdown pass on a play he would usually make. For what it is worth, Matt Ryan overthrew Jones by about a yard on another potential 45-yard score. The Falcons have been making much more of an effort at getting Jones in the end zone in recent weeks, so his blowup game is likely coming soon. Perhaps it will come in Week 10 against a sub-par Dallas secondary.
|Dez Bryant dealing with multiple injuries|
"Day-to-day" with knee and ankle injuries
By: Doug Orth | Nov 6 2017, 5:25 pm
|Jason Garrett said Dez Bryant is dealing with knee and ankle injuries from Sunday's game and said the receiver is "day by day." Garrett said he did not believe the knee injury was too troublesome. (ESPN - Todd Archer)|
FFToday's Take: Bryant injured his ankle in the second half of the Cowboys' Week 9 win over the Chiefs and did not return. The 29-year-old hasn't exceeded the 73 yards receiving he posted Sunday and isn't seeing as many "high-point" balls in the end zone as he used to. With that said, he's seeing enough volume to be trusted as a WR2 on a weekly basis.
|Mike Evans suspended one game|
Cheap shot on Marshon Lattimore
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 6 2017, 4:13 pm
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans was suspended one game on Monday for violating the NFL's policy on unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness.
Evans hit New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore in the back Sunday during a confrontation started by Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston in Tampa Bay's 30-10 loss (USA Today)|
FFToday's Take: Evans blasted Lattimore from behind after Lattimore and Evans will having a "conversation". Evans should have been kicked out of the game but instead, he will miss a Week 10 matchup with the Jets. Cameron Brate and DeSean Jackson should receive more looks with Evans out. Expect Evans to appeal.
|Winston will miss two weeks with shoulder injury|
Ryan Fitzpatrick will start Week 10
By: Doug Orth | Nov 6 2017, 1:00 pm
|The Bucs have decided Jameis Winston needs a couple weeks off to rest his injured shoulder.
The Bucs quarterback, who has failed to finish two of the past four games following a sprained AC joint in his right throwing shoulder at Arizona Oct. 15, will be shut down for at least two weeks following an MRI he received Monday. (Tampa Bay Times)|
FFToday's Take: Winston has been battling a shoulder injury for a few weeks and his performance has suffered with a completion percentage of 54 percent the last two weeks. Ryan Fitzpatrick took over in the 2nd half yesterday and will start Week 10 against the Jets.
|Leonard Fournette inactive today|
Violated team rules
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 5 2017, 11:30 am
|By deactivating RB Leonard Fournette for today’s game vs Cincinnati for violating team rule, HC Doug Marrone trying to establish a culture. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Whoa. Chris Ivory will get the start with T.J. Yeldon seeing as well. Last time Fournette missed, Yeldon had the better fantasy day. Bengals giving up the 7th fewest FPTs to RBs.
|Zach Ertz will be inactive today|
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 5 2017, 11:25 am
|Eagles TE Zach Ertz is out today, per source. Struggled through warmups and Eagles decided to hold him out. (https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter)|
FFToday's Take: This is a bit of shocker as Ertz was expected to play despite being listed as questionable with a hamstring injury. Trey Burton now becomes an interesting streaming option for owners looking for help at TE.
|Rob Kelley likely to be limited|
Nursing ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 5 2017, 7:30 am
|#Redskins RB Rob Kelley, listed as questionable and still nursing an ankle injury, is expected to play. But he won't have a full workload. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Despite getting some early-down work Kelley isn't a real option for fantasy owners. Chris Thompson is the back to own in Washington and is a viable RB2 especially in PPR leagues. Kelley hasn't seen double-digit carries since Week 2.
|Mike Wallace expected to play|
Back injury kept Wallace out Week 8
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 5 2017, 7:15 am
|Ravens WRs Mike Wallace (back) and Jeremy Maclin (shoulder), listed as questionable for Sunday, both expected to play vs Titans, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Ravens will have their two starting wide receivers in the lineup against a Titans defense that's given up the 13th most fantasy points to the position. Both are nothing more than WR3 dart throws in a limited Baltimore offense.
|Marqise Lee expected to play|
Jags WR listed as questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 5 2017, 7:00 am
|Jaguars WR Marqise Lee, listed as questionable for Sunday with knee injury, will play vs. Bengals, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Lee was limited on Friday but is expected to play and with DeDe Westbrook not activated the Jags will roll with their usual wide receiving corps of Lee, Allen Hurns and Keelan Cole. Lee is still looking for his first touchdown on the season.
|No DeDe Westbrook in Week 9|
Rookie receiver will have to wait another week for his debut
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 4 2017, 6:00 pm
|No roster moves for #Jaguars today so rookie WR Dede Westbrook won't debut tomorrow vs. Bengals. (Ryan O'Halloran on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Westbrook is coming off hernia surgery but will have to wait another week for his debut. Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee (knee) and Keelan Cole will be the top three wide receiver for Blake Bortles. None are appealing options in the Jaguars run-heavy scheme.
|Jay Ajayi to be limited in Week 9?|
Eagles have a bye in Week 10
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 4 2017, 1:15 pm
|Neither Doug Pederson nor running back Jay Ajayi would say whether Ajayi definitely will play Sunday when the Eagles host the Denver Broncos, but the most likely scenario seems to be that Ajayi will be active, working with a limited package of plays. (Philadelphia Enquirer)|
FFToday's Take: The most likely scenario is Ajayi being limited in Week 9, especially with the Eagles bye week looming in Week 10, giving him more time dive into the playbook. LeGarrette Blount should see the majority of snaps against a difficult Broncos run defense that's given up the fewest amount of fantasy points to running backs this season.
|New kicker for the Bengals on Sunday?|
Marshall Koehn signed
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 4 2017, 1:00 pm
|Looks like the Bengals are making a kicking move for Sunday's game at Jacksonville. Cincinnati signed kicker Marshall Koehn today. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Randy Bullock has been dealing with a back injury this week and the signing of Koehn suggest Bullock will likely be inactive. Facing the Jaguars, the Cincinnati kicker is not one to own in fantasy football for Week 9.
|Jordan Reed out, Crowder questionable|
Vernon Davis to start at TE
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 3 2017, 1:30 pm
|Washington ruled out TEs Jordan Reed and Niles Paul for Sunday at Seattle. OT Trent Williams doubtful, RB Rob Kelley and Jamison Crowder Q. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Reed will miss Week 9 with a hamstring injury while Crowder will go through a workout on Saturday to determine his status. Crowder has missed practice all week. If he sits, Ryan Grant should see increased work along side Josh Doctson and Terrelle Pryor.
|Game on for Zeke, eligible to play Week 9|
Judge grants stay
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 3 2017, 10:02 am
|Ezekiel Elliott is back for this week. 2nd Cir just granted request for administrative stay. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The absurdness of this process and it's existence can't be understated. However, for Week 9 fantasy owners can now deploy Zeke in their lineup. He's quickly vaults into the top running back play on the board against a Chiefs defense that struggles to stop the run. Backups Alfred Morris, Rod Smith and Darren McFadden can be sent back to your bench.
|Kelvin Benjamin to sit for TNF in Week 9|
Traded to Bills on Tuesday
By: Doug Orth | Nov 2 2017, 7:00 pm
|Kelvin Benjamin is out. (ESPN - Josina Anderson)|
FFToday's Take: The odds Benjamin was going to suit up for Buffalo just over 48 hours after his trade from the Panthers were long, so this shouldn't come as a shock. On the plus side, perhaps a week off will give his knee some more time to heal. Expect KB to suit up in Week 10 and pick up where he left off - keeping in mind the usual caveats about players changing teams midseason and learning the playbook - and remain a fantasy WR2 once Tyrod Taylor gets comfortable with him.
|Pierre Garcon headed to IR|
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 2 2017, 7:00 pm
|#49ers GM @JohnLynch49ers tells us Staley likely back after bye, WR Pierre Garcon to IR (Neck), done for year @KNBR (John Lund on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Garcon left last week's game with a neck injury and missed practice Wednesday and Thursday. Without Garcon the 49ers will be left with Marquise Goodwin, Aldrick Robinson and Trent Taylor as their starting three wide receivers. 49er wide receivers have a grand total of 2 touchdowns through eight games.
|Deshaun Watson reportedly tears ACL|
Team awaiting results of MRI
By: Doug Orth | Nov 2 2017, 5:40 pm
|Sources: Texans QB fear Deshaun Watson suffered a torn ACL in practice today. A non-contact injury. MRI coming to confirm. (NFL.com - Ian Rapoport)|
FFToday's Take: Absolutely awful and stunning news for the Texans, who had become the league's highest-scoring team since Watson took over for good in Week 2. If Watson is in fact done for the season, Tom Savage will lead the offense the rest of the way, and the fantasy values of DeAndre Hopkins along with Will Fuller will take a sizable hit as a result. Per the Houston Chronicle, Houston will sign Matt McGloin to back up Savage.
|Alfred Morris expected to start|
Rod Smith No.2, Darren McFadden No.3
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 2 2017, 2:00 pm
|A source informed of the decision tells me Alfred Morris will start Sunday for the Cowboys at running back. #2 Rod Smith #3 Darren McFadden on depth chart. All will get touches though. (Jane Slater on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We've assumed Morris would get the start. The real news here is that Rod Smith will be the next man up with McFadden third in line for carries. All are expected to see action. Morris gets the benefit of making the first good impression giving him a slight lead in fantasy value.
|Colts place Andrew Luck on IR|
Out for the year
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 2 2017, 1:00 pm
|The #Colts have made a decision: QB Andrew Luck is going on Injured Reserve. His 2017 is over before it began. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: If you haven't already dropped Andrew Luck, you may do so now. Luck will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a setback a few weeks ago with his injured shoulder. Luck will continue seeking medical opinions in hopes of returning to the field in 2018. Jacoby Brissett will continue to start at quarterback for the Colts.
|Emmanuel Sanders returns to practice|
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 1 2017, 3:30 pm
|Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and inside linebacker Todd Davis returned to practice as the Broncos moved closer to being back at full strength in advance of their Week 9 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Sanders practiced after missing the last two games because of a sprained ankle suffered in the third quarter of the Oct. 15 loss to the New York Giants. (DenverBroncos.com)|
FFToday's Take: Sanders is expected to play this week and will do so with Brock Osweiler as his quarterback. The Eagles have allowed the 14th most fantasy points to wide receivers. Sanders will be in the WR3 discussion for Week 9.
|TE Charles Clay ruled out for Thursday night|
Knee injury keeps Buffalo TE sidelined for third straight week
By: Jake Gordon | Nov 1 2017, 12:00 pm
|Charles Clay (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. (CBSSports.com)|
FFToday's Take: Charles Clay (knee) can be removed from your week 9 lineup. Nick O'Leary will serve as the team's tight end for Thursday night. Buffalo's backup tight end caught one of three balls thrown to him last week and isn't a recommended fantasy option.
|Siemian out, Osweiler in for Broncos|
Denver makes change at quarterback
By: Jake Gordon | Nov 1 2017, 11:21 am
|Brock Osweiler will replace Trevor Siemian as the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos when they face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was announced Wednesday. (ESPN.com)|
FFToday's Take: Denver's passing offense continues to struggle and will now change on the fly with Brock Osweiler getting the first shot to take over as Trevor Siemian's replacement. Demaryius Thomas and the rest of Denver's pass catchers have a slightly better match up this week against the Eagles, however, the quarterback situation makes them very risky plays for Week 9.
|Bills acquire WR Kelvin Benjamin|
Panthers receive a third- and a seventh-round pick in the 2018 draft
By: Mike Krueger | Oct 31 2017, 3:35 pm
|The Carolina Panthers have traded top wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin to the Buffalo Bills for a third- and a seventh-round pick in the 2018 draft. By heading to Buffalo, Benjamin will be reunited with Bills head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane, both of whom used to work in Carolina. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The Bills are certainly a WR-needy team. McDermott is familiar with Benjamin from his days as the defensive coordinator in Carolina. This seems like a lateral move for Benjamin's fantasy value and slight bump up for Devin Funchess in Carolina.
|Danny Woodhead returns to practice|
Eligible to return in Week 11
By: Jake Gordon | Oct 31 2017, 3:10 pm
|The Baltimore Ravens' do-it-all running back returned to practice after spending most of this season on IR, the team announced Tuesday.
Danny Woodhead is eligible to return to game action after the Ravens' Week 10 bye.
FFToday's Take: Danny Woodhead (hamstring) was hand picked for OC Marty Mornhigweg's offense and will undoubtedly have a role in the backfield if he can return to the field this season. He has always been a productive PPR player when healthy so consider adding him now as a speculative play. Alex Collins should continue to see the majority of carries in Baltimore's backfield when Woodhead or Terrance West (calf) return from injury.
|Broncos QB situation a tangled mess|
Trevor Siemian could yield to Paxton Lynch if a change is made
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Oct 31 2017, 10:25 am
|Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) on Twitter: "Broncos are considering a QB change, only if a change is made, it likely would be to former first-round pick Paxton Lynch, per source."
We also heard from Nicki Jhabvala on Twitter: "Joseph said he’ll go back and watch the film before deciding on QB situation. (Last week he was adamant on sticking with Siemian.)" (Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Trevor Siemian was horrendous on Monday night and even when he delivered the ball it was dropped by one of his WRs. There's just no value to be found in the Broncos passing game at the moment aside from deep PPR formats. If a change is made, expect Paxton Lynch, and not Brock Osweiler, to get the nod. This is a fantasy situation to avoid, if possible.
|Alfred Morris to be No. 1 RB in Dallas|
Jerry Jones confirms Morris in wake of Ezekiel Elliott suspension
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Oct 31 2017, 10:15 am
|Jon Machota (@jonmachota) on Twitter: "Jerry Jones on @1053thefan said Alfred Morris will get more carries but Darren McFadden and Rod Smith will get more work too" (Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Morris looks like the best bet for consistent carries as a fantasy RB2 in the Dallas backfield now that Ezekiel Elliott's suspension has been upheld by the courts. Elliott won;t return to action until December 17.
