Latest Headlines

Following Tuesday night's trade of Alex Smith, second-year QB Patrick Mahomes is fully expected to enter 2018 as the Chiefs' starter.

The Chiefs and Redskins agreed to a deal that will send Smith to D.C. when the new league year opens March 14. Mahomes started the Chiefs' meaningless Week 17 game against the Broncos, but it was anything but meaningless in the grand scheme of things, as K.C. got a look at the future. And it appears bright. Mahomes went 22-of-35 for 284 yards with a supporting cast of backups. Mahomes can make any throw on the field and should open things up even more with Tyreek Hill deep. Smith at times was averse to taking chances downfield, though he did open up more in a career 2017 season. Mahomes will certainly have his growing pains, but he has scintillating upside. Dual-threat Mahomes is a dark horse fantasy QB1 as soon as 2018.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports injured reserve is a "strong possibility" for Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch is expected to miss at least a month with his groin injury. He'll rehab for now, but surgery hasn't been ruled out. Going on IR would effectively end Lynch's season. Doug Martin will replace Lynch on early downs, with Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington playing change-up roles.

Sony Michel (knee) is questionable for Week 7 against the Bears.

Michel saw limited work at practice this week, just as he did a week ago when he blew up for 106 yards and two touchdowns in a win over Kansas City. Even against a strong Bears front, he'll be in play as a borderline RB1 in all fantasy formats.
Oct 19 - 4:12 PM

Julian Edelman (heel) is questionable for Week 7 against Chicago.

The Patriots limited Edelman in practice all week. There's been nothing to suggest he's in danger of sitting, but we likely won't know his status until Sunday. Josh Gordon (hamstring) was also listed as questionable but is expected to play.
Oct 19 - 4:06 PM

Cardinals coach Steve Wilks doesn't expect Josh Rosen (toe) to miss any time.

It's good news after what looked like a serious injury. There was some concern with Rosen in a walking boot on Friday. Rosen's practice reps may be scaled back next week, but with the Cardinals on a mini-bye, he shouldn't be in danger of sitting out Week 8.
Oct 19 - 3:59 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (foot) wasn't listed on the Texans' final injury report for Week 7 against the Jaguars.

Hopkins worried us a little with Thursday's DNP, though it looks like he was just getting a maintenance day. Nuk draws a tough matchup against Jalen Ramsey this week, though obviously benching him in season-long leagues is not an option.

Jaguars acquired RB Carlos Hyde from the Browns in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2019.

And just like that, trade season has begun. With Leonard Fournette's recovery from a hamstring injury taking much longer than expected, the Jaguars decided they simply couldn't wait any longer. Once he learns the playbook, Hyde should fill a committee role alongside T.J. Yeldon, who has filled in throughout Fournette's absence. With Hyde out of the equation, second-round rookie Nick Chubb should immediately slot in as the Browns' lead ball-carrier, though Duke Johnson will continue to be involved on passing downs. Obviously Chubb needs to be picked up in all fantasy formats.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (calf) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Browns.

McCoy may be looking at a multi-game absence after not practicing all week. It's a huge downgrade to the interior of the Bucs' defense. Nick Chubb and Baker Mayfield get matchup upgrades with McCoy out.
Oct 19 - 3:24 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Marshawn Lynch will miss at least a month with his groin injury.

It's another blow to the Raiders' offense. Lynch has been a bright spot for Oakland this year, averaging a respectable 4.2 yards per carry with three touchdowns through his first six games. Without him, the Raiders will turn to a committee featuring some combination of Doug Martin and Jalen Richard. Perhaps Oakland will scour the free agent market to see what running backs are available.
Oct 19 - 3:06 PM

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (ankle) is questionable for Week 7 against the Patriots.

Lead wideout Allen Robinson (groin) also drew the questionable tag, though both players resumed practicing on Friday. We're guessing Mack will play through his ankle injury, just as he did a week ago in Miami. Mack looked noticeably hobbled in that game and it wouldn't be a surprise if he had similar limitations against New England, which would come as great news for Tom Brady.
Oct 19 - 2:30 PM

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Emmanuel Sanders' ankle is "fine."

Sanders tweaked his ankle late in Thursday's win at Arizona, though the veteran believes he would have re-entered the game had the score been closer. He'll have nine days to rest up before next week's game in Kansas City.
Oct 19 - 2:25 PM

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Royce Freeman (ankle) is day to day.

This would suggest Freeman isn't dealing with a high-ankle spain. Freeman will have an MRI, but the Broncos are hoping this is something he can play through. There should be more clarity on Freeman's status next week.
