Dennis Johnson will the third running back

|Arian Foster is officially active. Dennis Johnson gets the call to be the Texans third active running back. (Tania Ganguli via Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Foster (hamstring) and Ben Tate (ribs) were both limited in practice this week. Neither will be 100% and Tate's value will now be limited with Foster active.
|McFadden, Pryor hurt in loss|
McFadden re-aggravates hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 3 2013, 6:10 pm
|Running back Darren McFadden, meanwhile, aggravated the right hamstring he strained against Washington on Sept. 29. McFadden was injured on a 5-yard carry early in the second quarter. It would appear as though Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor's pride was hurt more than his right knee. Pryor was taken out of the game midway through the fourth quarter after being hit going out of bounds. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: It sounds like Pryor was removed from the game simply as a precaution. He will be re-evaluated on Monday. McFadden may be a different story. His troublesome right hamstring flared up again and he might have a difficult time returning to the field in Week 10. Rashad Jennings will be a hot waiver wire pickup this week.
|Sproles leaves early with concussion|
Injured in first quarter
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 3 2013, 5:00 pm
|The Saints lost a piece to their offensive puzzle on the third play from scrimmage. Running back Darren Sproles sustained a concussion after being hit on a 2-yard reception. (The Times Picayune)|
FFToday's Take: Sproles early exit left many fantasy owners with a goose egg on the scoreboard. The Saints did very little rushing in the game. Pierre Thomas lead the charge with six carries for 24 yards.
|White and Colston, inactive|
Big name wide receivers will sit this week

|Falcons WR Roddy White and Saints WR Marques Colston both inactive. (Adam Schefter via Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Harry Douglas remains a solid WR2 while Lance Moore should see increased targets with Colston on the sidelines.
|James Jones likely to play|
Packers play Monday night

|Packers believe WR James Jones, listed as questionable with a knee injury, is likely to play Monday night vs. the Bears. (Adam Schefter via Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Jones was limited in practice on Friday and Saturday. He'll be a risky play consider the Monday night start time.
|QB Jeff Tuel to start for Bills|
Matt Flynn expected to be the backup

|Jeff Tuel will start for the Bills, per source. (Ian Rapoport via Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: With EJ Manuel (knee) and Thaddeus Lewis (ribs, flu) unable to go, the Bills will start Tuel at home against Kansas City in Week 9. He should be no where near your fantasy lineup. Downgrade WR Steve Johnson as well.
|James Jones 50/50 for Monday night|
Packers receiver listed as Questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 2 2013, 3:00 pm
|James Jones (knee) is nearing his return. The wide receiver did more at practice this week for the Green Bay Packers and is officially listed as "questionable" for Monday night's game against Chicago.
After doing more at practice Saturday, he'll see how the knee responds Sunday morning and the team will make a decision from there.
"I don't know if I'll go this week, next week, but it felt better," Jones said. "It felt a little better than last week so I'm excited about that.
"If I was a betting man, 50/50."

FFToday's Take: Jones was limited in Saturday's practice and will be a gametime decision. If he plays, his presence will have a negative effect on Jarrett Boykin's fantasy value. We probably won't know Jones' official status until the Inactives come out on Monday night.
