Report: Lions DT Nick Fairley limping Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:14 pm ET) Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley walked with a noticeable limp in the locker room Wednesday and declined to answer questions from the media, per the Detroit News.

Fairley has played through a biceps ailment in recent week, but there has been nothing to indicate any problems with his legs. He did manage his first sack of the season Sunday against the Jets.


Mike Glennon could put up numbers vs. Saints
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:14 pm ET) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon put together a solid performance in leading his team to a surprise win over the Steelers in Week 4, and now faces a solid matchup in his encore in Week 5 against the Saints.

Glennon had accuracy issues against the Steelers, but still put up 300-plus yards and two touchdowns. He might find some success this Sunday, against a Saints defense that has struggled to slow down opposing quarterbacks. Only four teams have allowed more Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks than the Saints, who have been tagged for 22.5 per game, including 30-plus twice.

Glennon is tough to rely on, given his lack of track record, but there is a chance for him to put up some numbers here. The Saints are likely to go up early Sunday, so Glennon could be forced to pass often. In a two-QB league, Glennon has some upside in Week 5. 


Brian Quick facing a great matchup
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:12 pm ET) Rams wide receiver Brian Quick has emerged as the team's top option in the passing game, and he has a good chance to put together another solid performance with the Eagles on the schedule in Week 5.

Quick leads the team in targets with 22 through three games, and could be set to turn in a big performance Sunday. The Eagles allow the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receiver, with six touchdowns and 173.5 yards per game allowed.

The quarterback situation in St. Louis is worrisome, but Quick has found success in spit of it so far. He is not a slam dunk by any means, but Quick has some upside for Fantasy purposes in Week 5, given the matchup. 


LB Desmond Bishop back with Cardinals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:08 pm ET) Less than a month after waiving linebacker Desmond Bishop, the Cardinals have re-signed him. He had been let go on Sept. 6.

Bishop was a prolific contributor to the Green Bay defense in 2010 and 2011 with 218 total tackles in those seasons combined. But he had just four tackles and one assist with Minnesota a year ago.


Colts LB Jerrell Freeman returns to practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:02 pm ET) Colts linebacker Jerrell Freeman, who has not played since the opener due to a hamstring injury, returned to practice Wednesday. Indy is preparing to host the Ravens on Sunday.

DE Osi Umenyiora admits he could be doing more for Falcons
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:00 pm ET) Falcons defensive end Osi Umenyiora conceded Wednesday that he needs to contribute more to what has been a failing defense in 2014. Atlanta is yielded 28.3 points per game this season and surrendered 41 Sunday at Minnesota.

"Do I feel like I could be helping more? Yes," he told the New York Daily News. He added that he will continue to do whatever the team asks of him.

Umenyiora has yet to start in four games and has registered just six tackles and no sacks.


Zac Stacy could find success through the air
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:57 am ET) Rams running back Zac Stacy is looking for his big breakout performance, and could have a chance to find it in Week 5 against the Eagles.

The Eagles have struggled mightily against opposing running backs this season, allowing 21.0 Fantasy points per game. That number is even higher since going up against the hapless Jaguars in Week 1, as the team's last three opponents have all put up 24-plus points against the Eagles out of the backfield.

The Eagles have actually held their own in the running game, with opposing backs averaging just 3.7 yards per carry. However, they have struggled to keep track of backs in the passing game, where they have allowed four touchdowns over the last three games. Stacy has not made a big impact as a receiver, but this could be his best chance to do so, especially if the Rams end up in a shootout.

Stacy has been splitting work more than we expected, but he should get a healthy role in Week 5. Keep him active. 


Stay the course with Greg Olsen
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11:51 am ET) Even though Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin continues to emerge as quarterback Cam Newton's favorite target, tight end Greg Olsen should remain a big enough part of the passing game to start across the board in Fantasy.

So what if he was shut down Week 4 at Baltimore? The Ravens have allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game to tight ends this season. It was par for the course. He was the No. 6 tight end in standard CBSSports.com leagues prior to that game, ranking ahead of notables Niles Paul, Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce.

Olsen isn't going to score a touchdown every game, but a tight end who consistently contributes five catches for 60 yards (except when he's facing the Ravens) is going to score enough that you won't be able to justify sitting him in Fantasy unless you just have an embarrassment of riches at the position.

And in that case, make a trade.


Cowboys resting QB Tony Romo on Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:50 am ET) Cowboys sizzling quarterback Tony Romo, who has been dealing with a back issue, is not practicing Wednesday. He has earned a day off.

Romo doesn't seem to need the work, at least based on his performance in Week 4. He buried the Saints with three touchdown passes and a quarterback rating of 137.4. He has completed 40 of 52 passes in the last two games combined.


Calvin Johnson feeling better this week
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:50 am ET) Lions receiver Calvin Johnson told reporters his sprained ankle is feeling better now than it did at this point last week. Johnson was used mainly as a decoy Week 4, catching two passes for 12 yards.

He'll take on the Bills at home Sunday.
