10/25:Denver Broncos quarterback Paxton Lynch (shoulder) is practicing Wednesday for the first time since he had surgery on his shoulder Aug. 19. It's good progress for Lynch, but he still has a ways to go before he's considered an option at quarterback. However, with Trevor Siemian looking awful under center the last four weeks, there's a chance that Lynch could see starts down the stretch if nothing improves. So far Lynch has been a first-round bust, though, and he's only worth stashing in deep dynasty leagues for now.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: 9 News - Mike Klis

10/25:Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said wide receiver Stefon Diggs (groin) is making the trip to London and has a good chance of playing in London in Week 8 against the Browns. Diggs has missed the last two games, but his return would be a nice boost to the offense overall. Because he's still likely questionable to play in London, Diggs is a risky WR3 option. If he plays, it'll be a slight downgrade for the fantasy value of Adam Thielen.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Minneapolis Star Tribune - Ben Goessling

10/25:Tarik Cohen will take his explosive playmaking abilities to New Orleans as the Bears take on the Saints in Week 8. The Saints defense has been tough on the opposing running game, allowing only three total touchdowns to running backs. The good news for Cohen is the Saints have allowed the fifth most receiving yards out of the backfield so the rookie running back will have some opportunities to catch the football. Cohen was sparsely deployed against the Panthers in Week 7 but did bring in a 70-yard catch and run that almost became a touchdown. The touches may be limited but Cohen is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. Playing in the dome of New Orleans equates to boom-or-bust fantasy potential for Cohen in Week 8.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Chicago Bears

10/25:Jordan Howard will need to produce in Week 8 if the Bears hope to have a chance against the Saints in New Orleans. The Bears lean on Howard heavily and he has produced 560 rushing yards and four touchdowns this season. He will certainly see the carries in the game but the Saints rush defense has allowed only three total touchdowns all season. Some of that can be attributed to teams being forced to throw the ball to compete with Drew Brees and the Saints offense but the Bears do not have that luxury with a rookie quarterback and a talent-less wide receiving corps. Howard could see the type of volume touches to deserve borderline RB1 status for Week 8.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Chicago Bears

10/25:Mitch Trubisky and the Bears will face a surpassingly improved Saints defense in New Orleans for Week 8. The Bears will also face the explosive offense of Drew Brees and will need to score points in the game. Trubisky and the Bears offensive game plan this season has been to hand the ball off and play defense. That tactic will not work against the Saints and Trubisky has only attempted 23 passes the past two weeks. If he is forced to throw the football he could make a few mistakes against a secondary that has eight interceptions this season. The rookie has potential, but possesses zero fantasy potential right now as he is learning the ropes of the NFL.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Chicago Bears

10/25:Carolina Panthers tight end Ed Dickson (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday. Dickson's injury isn't believed to be serious, so he should ramp up his practice activity later this week. He had a big game against the Lions three weeks ago with five catches for 175 yards, but he hasn't done much outside of that while filling in for Greg Olsen (foot), and he remains a low-end streaming option this weekend against the Bucs.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Charlotte Observer - Joseph Person

10/25:Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (arm) is slated to have surgery to fix his broken arm Wednesday, according to a source. The team is hoping he will be out less than eight weeks. Even though the Cardinals are hoping for a late-season return for Palmer, one has to wonder if this is the end for the 37-year-old veteran. Even if he returns, he's likely to be of much use for fantasy owners and can be dropped in the majority of leagues. Drew Stanton replaced Palmer in Week 7 and was atrocious. It may not be long until Blaine Gabbert gets his shot under center in the desert.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - Marc Sessler

10/25:Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly (concussion) is practicing Wednesday, but he remains in the league's concussion protocol, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport. Kuechly will need full clearance in order to play in Week 8 against Tampa. Given Kuechly's extensive history with head injuries, there's no guarantee he gets clearance to allow him to play this weekend. He remains week-to-week. As long as he remains out, it'll weaken Carolina's interior defense.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - Marc Sessler
10/25:Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is shaping up as a decent option in Week 8 against Washington. Even though the Washington defense defends the pass fairly well, they are susceptible to strong tight end play, allowing the third most fantasy points to the position so far this season. Witten's 20.4 percent target share is fourth among all tight ends, and Washington has allowed a TE1 finish in every game this season except one. Don't expect an enormous, matchup-winning performance out of Witten, but a solid 50+ yards and a touchdown is something most owners would happily agree to.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource:

10/25:Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley hasn't made much noise in fantasy leagues this season, but he may be a sneaky option for Week 8. With several teams on bye and some fantasy owners potentially struggling to fill their starting lineups, Beasley is worth consideration this week. The two highest scoring games allowed by the Washington defense so far this season have been to Eagles primary slot receiver Nelson Agholor. Beasley plays a similar role in the Cowboys offense and has gone for at least five catches and at least 56 yards the last two times these teams matched up. Beasley won't return WR1 numbers, but he could put together a WR3 week and with a touchdown catch perhaps even a WR2 performance. Not bad for a guy that can be picked up off most waiver wires.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource:

10/25:The Carolina Panthers signed free-agent place kicker Roberto Aguayo to their practice squad Wednesday with Graham Gano dealing with knee soreness. Aguayo has been a monumental second-round bust for the Buccaneers and was released earlier this year, only to be picked up by the Bears and then released. Aguayo will likely only be kept around in Carolina until Gano is ready to kick again, which may not be long. He's not a legitimate fantasy option.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - Jeremy Bergman
10/25:The Detroit Lions have locked up kicker Matt Prater, signing him to a three-year, $11.4 million extension that will keep the Pro Bowler in Detroit through 2020. Prater has made 10-of-12 attempts so far this season, with three makes from 55 yards or further, an NFL single season record. Prater is one of the best long distance kickers in the NFL and as long as the Lions keep scoring points he will remain a starting fantasy kicker in all formats.--Andy P - RotoBallerSource: Ian Rapoport

10/25:Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) is missing from practice Wednesday, and he hasn't been seen at the portion of practice open to the media in over two weeks. Bradford continues to get treatment for his troublesome knee, and there remains no timetable for his return. Case Keenum is holding down the fort, but Teddy Bridgewater (knee) could be called on as the starter as soon as Week 10. Bradford's fantasy stock has hit rock bottom at this point.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - Courtney Cronin

10/25:Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is a solid starting option in Week 8 despite a somewhat tough matchup against Washington. Elite cornerback Josh Norman should be back on the field in Week 8, making things a bit more difficult for Bryant. Still, Dez is averaging 4.7 catches per game, the highest rate for him since 2014. Including the playoffs, he's scored 14 times in his last 17 games. While he might not rack up a ton of yards against the Washington secondary, he's always a threat to score a touchdown. He's a mid-to-low WR1 this week.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource:

10/25:Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry is on a roll these days, scoring a touchdown in three straight games for the first time in his career. Having Matt Moore enter as quarterback should only solidify his position as a WR2 for fantasy teams. Landry should also have a big advantage facing slot corner Lardarius Webb this week. Landry has gotten heavy usage this season, seeing at least 10 targets in five of six games. That should continue against Baltimore, making him a must-start, especially in PPR leagues.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: Omar Kelly
