The San Francisco Chronicle reports Terrelle Pryor will start the Raiders' Week 1 opener against the Colts.

This isn't a surprise. The Raiders will likely wait until the last moment to announce Pryor as the starter, but all signs point to him being under center. Pryor took the first-team reps in Monday's practice. Matt Flynn will be the No. 2 and could even see some playing time in the opener. Pryor is a poor passer and is bound to struggle, but he gives the Raiders their best chance to move the ball. Start the Indianapolis defense in as many leagues possible.

A.J. Green (toe) is listed as doubtful for Week 8.

Green missed every day of practice this week, only working off to the side with rehabbing players. Mohamed Sanu will stay in the No. 1 wideout role for Sunday's clash with Baltimore. Sanu struggled to create separation last week, being asked to win on the perimeter. Cincinnati's passing game is likely in for a long day Sunday. They better get their running game kick started.

Owen Daniels is out indefinitely after having his knee scoped on Friday.

The Ravens are only saying Daniels will be out "at least one game," but he's much likelier to miss more. It's another big blow to OC Gary Kubiak's offense, which already lost Dennis Pitta for the season. Mostly a blocker to this point in Kubiak's offense, third-round rookie Crockett Gillmore will now take over as the Ravens' starting tight end, perhaps with FB Kyle Juszczyk and/or WR Marlon Brown taking on bigger roles in the passing game.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner guesses Tyler Eifert (elbow) will return from the injured reserve/designated for return list in Week 11 against the Saints.

Eifert is worth rostering for forward-thinking fantasy owners in need of tight end help. He was a big part of OC Hue Jackson's game plan in Week 1, before dislocating the elbow, racking up three early catches for 37 yards. Jermaine Gresham has done nothing to instill confidence as a pass catcher during Eifert's absence, while A.J. Green (toe) is now hobbled and Marvin Jones (foot) is on I.R. Eifert could flirt with TE1 stats down the stretch.

Trent Richardson (hamstring) is questionable for Week 8 against the Steelers after missing practice every day this week.

He's going to be a game-time decision. Richardson is already sluggish at 100 percent, so he'd be nothing more than a borderline RB2/3 at less than full health. If he can't play, Dan Herron is expected to handle some of Richardson's workload. "Boom" is a north-south runner who showed he's hard to bring down in the preseason. Ahmad Bradshaw would gobble up a few extra looks.

Reggie Wayne (elbow) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Steelers.

The 5-2 Colts sit comfortably atop the AFC South and Wayne was looking tired in recent weeks. He then landed awkwardly on his elbow last Sunday against the Bengals and missed the entire practice week. Look for Griff Whalen and Donte Moncrief picking up extra work behind T.Y. Hilton. Moncrief may be the biggest beneficiary. He was already eating into Hakeem Nicks' snaps and has gobs of upside. He's not an advised re-draft start, but worth a dart throw in daily leagues. Wayne will eye a Week 9 return.

A.J. Green (toe) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

That's another clean sweep of DNPs for Green, which will likely rule him out for Week 8 against the Ravens. Green has strictly been doing conditioning drills on a side field all week. After last week's debacle against the Colts that saw three-and-out after three-and-out for the offense, the Bengals better figure out how to run the ball against Baltimore. Mo Sanu will dominate targets in the pass game.

Calvin Johnson (ankle) is questionable for Week 8 against the Falcons.

Megatron will "truly be a game-time decision," according to Tim Twentyman of the Lions' team website. Johnson got in three limited practices this week and began cutting and running routes on the sprained ankle. At least we'll know Johnson's status early, as the Lions and Falcons kick off at 9:30 AM ET Sunday.
Oct 24 - 10:39 AM

Reggie Bush (ankle) is doubtful for Week 8 against the Falcons.

We can't trust anything Bush says. He declared himself 100 percent ready for Week 7, and Bush was barely used in the second half. This week, he said he's going to play against Atlanta in London. That appears unlikely. It'll be Joique Bell and Theo Riddick in the backfield for Detroit. Bell is our No. 17 running back.

Keenan Allen caught 9-of-13 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 8 loss to the Broncos.

The touchdown — as you may have heard — was Allen's first of the season. Allen could have had his second 10-catch effort of the year, but committed a drop. He was also the target on one of Philip Rivers' two interceptions. Allen showed why he was so highly valued in summer drafts, putting on a clinic as a route runner against the Broncos' elite secondary. He'll enter San Diego's Week 9 trip to Miami the owner of a 43/427/1 line on 65 targets. There is WR2 hope still.

Ronnie Hillman rushed 20 times for 109 yards in the Broncos' Week 8 win over the Chargers, catching 3-of-4 targets for an additional 29 yards.

The 138 yards from scrimmage were Hillman's most in his three games as starter, but it's his amazingly-bad touchdown luck that will have owners talking on Friday. Hillman had five potential scores wiped away by happenstance and shenanigans. In no particular order, Hillman: Lost a touchdown by stepping out of bounds, had a score wiped out by holding, lost a shot at a goal-line carry thanks to a botched snap and watched Juwan Thompson vulture not one, but two TDs. The good news, if you want to look at it that way, is that Hillman was in position for so many touchdowns, and continues to run circles around the work Montee Ball did before going down with a groin injury. Ball will have a role when he returns, but it's getting harder to believe it won't be as Hillman's caddie.
Oct 23 - 11:56 PM

Antonio Gates caught 5-of-8 targets for 54 yards and two touchdowns in San Diego's Week 8 loss to the Broncos.

The scores were Gates' eighth and ninth of the season. Six of those have come in his past four games. Gates is now just one touchdown away from his first 10-score campaign since 2010. The TDs weren't Gates' only accomplishment this evening, as the yards gave him 9,610 for his career, moving him past Lance Alworth (9,584) as the Bolts' all-time leader. Gates will enter San Diego's Week 9 trip to Miami the owner of 751 lifetime catches, and 96 career touchdowns.
