Josh McCown was reportedly "humming the ball" in his return to Browns practice Wednesday.
He also reportedly had a "pep in his step." The Browns listed McCown's participation as "full," suggesting he has a better-than-average chance to start against the Jets. He'll be more so on track if he bounces back for another full practice on Thursday. McCown will be playable in two-QB leagues and worth a look as a QB1 streamer if he's green lighted for this favorable matchup.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports Eli Rogers did not play in the Steelers' Week 7 loss to New England because he was disciplined by coach Mike Tomlin.
Rogers was disciplined for "an unspecified reason." He still has his roster spot and should resume playing after the Steelers' Week 8 bye, but Rogers has not reached 40 receiving yards in a game since Week 1. A previous unconfirmed report claimed Rogers was placed on team-imposed suspension for showing up late to a practice walkthrough. Rogers lacks fantasy value in 14-team leagues.
Tyler Lockett (thigh) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
It's a new injury for Lockett, who played through a torn PCL earlier this year. Lockett should be fine for Sunday's Saints matchup.
Jimmy Graham (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.
It's likely a rest day after Graham played the entire game against Arizona last week. Graham is a must-start for a revenge matchup with the Saints in Week 8.
Russell Wilson (knee, pec) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Seattle is managing Wilson's reps after Sunday night's overtime tie with Arizona. Wilson hasn't look close to fully healthy this year, but isn't in danger of missing Week 8. He'll have a chance to get on track with a matchup against the Saints.
Seahawks LT Bradley Sowell (knee) thinks he can play this week.
Sowell was carted off with a sprained MCL on Sunday night against Arizona. He was expected to miss multiple weeks, but coach Pete Carroll says he "looks like he's not hurt." Sowell is still on the doubtful side for Week 8. George Fant will likely draw the start in his place.
Jaguars owner Shad Khan met with coaches and players this week.
Jacksonville is spinning it as a "constructive meeting," but it's a concern any time an owner intervenes. The Jaguars (2-4) have been a massive disappointment despite a talented roster, ranking in the bottom of the league in total offense and allowing over 26 points per game. Jacksonville also leads the NFL in penalty yards (554) and are second in penalties (59) under HC Gus Bradley. Coming off an embarrassing loss to Oakland, Bradley is on the hot seat entering Thursday night's game against Tennessee.
The Philadelphia defense will be tasked with stopping Dallas RB Ezekiel Elliott and Dallas' top-ranked rushing attack in Week 8.
The Cowboys have rushed for 161.2 yards per game this season, including 191 per game over their last four outings. Philadelphia is surrendering 4.5 yards per carry but has allowed just one 100+ yard rusher in 2016 (Matt Jones, Week 6). The Eagles D/ST has been phenomenal for fantasy owners in 2016 but expectations should be tempered for this road matchup.
