Date: Team: Pos:

Kenny Britt (hip) practiced fully again on Friday.

Listed as probable, he will start against San Francisco.
Oct 31 - 2:37 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 9.

V-Jax is coming off a one-catch, 13-yard clunker, but should have openings if the Browns leave Joe Haden at left cornerback on Sunday, something they've done often this season. In that scenario, Jackson would end up running a lot of routes against burnable RCB Buster Skrine. The Bucs pass-game dysfunction has hurt him, but Jackson should be in fantasy lineups this week.
Oct 31 - 2:34 PM

Doug Martin (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 9 against the Browns.

Bobby Rainey is shaping up as a sneaky-good flex option against a porous Cleveland run defense, particularly with rookie Charles Sims uncertain to be activated for the game. If Sims doesn't play, the Bucs would turn to Rainey in the lead back role with Mike James perhaps being utilized as the breather back. Fantasy owners in need of roster space can send Martin packing at this point.
Oct 31 - 2:30 PM

According to the Baltimore Sun, Owen Daniels (knee, questionable) "moved well" during the portion of Friday's practice that's open to the media.

Oct 31 - 2:15 PM

Jadeveon Clowney (illness) is expected to miss Week 9 against the Eagles.

Updating a previous item, Clowney appears to be over his early-season knee injury. But he is dealing with an illness. Clowney's absence is an upgrade to Nick Foles' matchup. Although Clowney did not light up the stat sheet against the Titans, he created pressure and was a nuisance to the Titans' O-Line.
Oct 31 - 2:11 PM

Eagles C Jason Kelce (groin) is listed as probable for Week 9.

It's a big plus for LeSean McCoy's run blocking in a date with the Texans.
Oct 31 - 1:45 PM

Bengals OC Hue Jackson expressed confidence Friday that Jeremy Hill will be a capable lead back in the absence of Gio Bernard (shoulder/hip).

"I feel good that if it happened that way, that [Hill] would go in there and do the job," Jackson said. ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey expects Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead to also supply "production from the running back position" off the bench, although Hill has shown capable of being a true every-down back and is the heavy favorite for touches. Keep in mind the Jaguars have allowed just 3.44 YPC and one rushing score to opposing running backs over their last five games, and Cincinnati's struggling run-blocking unit will be without RG Kevin Zeitler (calf). Hill owners will be hanging their hats on anticipated volume and goal-line chances.
Oct 31 - 1:43 PM

Asked Friday whether Giovani Bernard (hip, out) will be available for Week 10 against the Browns, coach Marvin Lewis replied "We'll see."

"We'll cross those bridges then," Lewis said of Bernard, whose production has dwindled while battling shoulder, rib, and hip injuries the past three weeks. "The rest will be good for him." After hosting the Jaguars on Sunday, the Bengals have a quick Week 10 turnaround as they'll host the Browns on Thursday Night Football. It's conceivable that rookie power back Jeremy Hill will end up making consecutive starts.
Oct 31 - 1:23 PM

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis expressed confidence Friday that A.J. Green (toe, questionable) will play Sunday against the Jaguars after practicing for a third consecutive day.

Green was technically "limited" in all three practices, but he's on course to start. "If everything stays the way it is, he'll play," Lewis said. The Bengals should be thankful to have gone 1-1-1 without Green in the lineup, including getting a critical division victory over the Ravens last week. With Green back and Mohamed Sanu rolling, Andy Dalton is shaping up as a decent two-quarterback-league start against a depleted Jaguars pass defense.
Oct 31 - 1:20 PM

Cowboys playcaller Scott Linehan acknowledged Friday that "it's rare" for a quarterback to play after missing an entire week of practice.

Tony Romo (back), of course, missed the entire week of practice. We were quite surprised when Jerry Jones essentially put the onus on Romo to play, deeming his availability a matter of "pain tolerance." Romo is a 34-year-old human being who's undergone two major back surgeries within the last two years. The chances appear to be rising that Brandon Weeden will start versus Arizona. Stay tuned for updates into Sunday morning.
Oct 31 - 1:16 PM

The Ravens are calling Owen Daniels (knee) a "game-time decision" for Week 9 against the Steelers.

Daniels had his knee scoped last Friday. He may be active for Sunday's critical division game, but it's hard to imagine him playing a full complement of snaps. Although Crockett Gillmore didn't light up the box score in last week's start, he did make several impact blocks and caught both of his targets.
Oct 31 - 1:11 PM

Jordan Cameron (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 9.

He's tentatively expected to miss two weeks. Considering Cameron's lackluster to-date production, likelihood of missing the next two games where six teams are on bye in each, and Josh Gordon's impending return to swipe targets, fantasy owners can consider dropping Cameron in 12- and 14-team leagues.
Oct 31 - 1:10 PM

Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland hurt his knee in Friday's practice and is questionable for Week 9 against the Vikings.

He'll go for an MRI. Breeland is coming off his best game of his rookie season, when he held Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams to four catches for 52 scoreless yards on eight targets. If Breeland is forced to miss Week 9, Tracy Porter and E.J. Biggers would be the Nos. 2 and 3 corners behind David Amerson.
Oct 31 - 12:45 PM

Doug Martin (ankle) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Barring a surprise, Bobby Rainey will get the start at running back against the Browns. Depending on how the Bucs choose to sprinkle Mike James and/or Charles Sims in, Rainey could handle 20-plus touches. If so, he'd be a high-upside RB2 against a Cleveland defense that is yielding the ninth-most fantasy points to running backs. Rainey has easily been Tampa's best runner in 2014.
Oct 31 - 12:37 PM

Darren Sproles (knee) is probable for Week 9 against the Texans.

He'll return from his sprained MCL as Rotoworld's No. 34 running back this week.
