Report: Lions sign TE Kellen Davis
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:56 pm ET) The Lions have signed tight end Kellen Davis, a league source told Pro Football Talk on Monday. The move will give the team more depth at tight end after Joseph Fauria (ankle) and rookie Eric Ebron (hamstring) all sat out Week 7. The only healthy tight end on the roster, Brandon Pettigrew, injured his ankle on Sunday against New Orleans.

Davis caught three passes in 15 appearances last season for the Seahawks. He has yet to play a game this season.


Bears K Robbie Gould downplays Brandon Marshall 's rant
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:49 pm ET) Bears kicker Robbie Gould has downplayed his teammate Brandon Marshall 's dramatic postgame rant in a radio appearance on WSCR 670-AM on Monday, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"I wouldn't give this any more attention than it obviously needs," Gould said. "Everyone's trying to make this a story out of something that really wasn't that big of a deal. … Obviously everyone's frustrated. Everyone wants to win. Our fans want to win. Coaches want to win. The players want to win. And everyone's obviously frustrated."

After losing to his former team on Sunday, the star wideout was heard screaming at his teammates -- including Gould -- through the locker room doors before venting to the media. The Bears have lost their first three games at home this season, matching their home loss total from each of the previous five seasons.

They'll look to get back on track Week 8 at New England.


Demaryius Thomas clearly the top wide receiver
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1:38 pm ET) Coming into the season, Demaryius Thomas wasn't the clear No. 1 wide receiver in Fantasy. Calvin Johnson was. And while Thomas was in the discussion for the No. 2 spot, so were A.J. Green and Julio Jones.

But with Johnson and Green battling injuries and Jones an indirect victim of the Falcons' offensive line woes, Thomas has emerged as the top dog at the position. Frankly, he'd probably be there even if those other three played exactly as they were supposed to. He's the most talented wide receiver the (soon to be) most prolific passer in league history has ever had to work with, and the two are beginning to click like never before. Over his last three games, Thomas has averaged 8.7 catches for 173.7 yards with five touchdowns.

Certainly, he won't maintain that pace for the rest of the season. If he did, he'd finish with about 2,400 yards. But if Peyton Manning continues to give him preferential treatment instead of reverting to the equal opportunity passer he was in his first two years with the Broncos, the two could challenge the record books.

Nothing against Jordy Nelson, who has actually been the best wide receiver in standard CBSSports.com leagues to date, but I think Thomas blows him and every other wide receiver out of the water going forward.


Dolphins attribute read option to Ryan Tannehil's recent success
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:37 pm ET) Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor credited quarterback Ryan Tannehill's ability to successfully run the read option as a reason for his team's success as of late. Tannehill completed his first 14 pass attempts and finished 25 for 32 with 277 yards and two scores in a 27-14 victory over the Bears in Week 7.

"Every day, practice and games, he gets better at it," Lazor said, per the Palm Beach Post. "He's confident in it. It helped us win the game."

In the past six quarters, Tannehill has completed 37 of 47 attempts for 437 yards, with four touchdown passes. He's also carried the ball seven times for 88 yards and a score.


Idzik: Percy Harvin could be 'a potential coup for the Jets'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:21 pm ET) Although wide receiver Percy Harvin arrives in New York amid rumors of multiple physical altercations with former Seattle teammates, Jets general manager John Idzik is excited to have Harvin on the roster.

"This can be a potential coup for the Jets," Idzik said Monday, per the New York Daily News.

Despite Harvin's past, Idzik said the team did "a ton" of background work on Harvin and doesn't believe Harvin will be disruptive.

"You never know how a player is going to behave, react, respond until you put him in your environment," Idzik said. "In Percy’s case, University of Florida, Minnesota, Seattle, they’re all different environments than here in New York. We have a very healthy environment for Percy Harvin. 

"It’s really immersing him in what it is to act like a Jet, be a Jet, play like a Jet."


No reason for concern over Emmanuel Sanders
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1:17 pm ET) It was good news, bad news for Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders Week 7 against the 49ers. The good news is he scored his first touchdown of the season, catching a 3-yard pass from quarterback Peyton Manning in the first quarter. The bad news is it was one of just three catches he had all day ... for only 41 yards.

The performance was especially discouraging coming on the heels of a three-catch, 38-yard effort at the Jets in Week 6. Prior to then, he may not have had any touchdowns, but he delivered three straight 100-yard games.

I still say it's nothing to worry about in Fantasy. You can't expect every game to unfold the exact same way. You know the Broncos are going to throw the ball. Demaryius Thomas has been getting most of the looks lately, but if he maintained his pace from the last three weeks, averaging 173.7 yards per game, for the rest of the season, he'd have nearly 2,400 yards.

He won't have 2,400 yards, and on the days when he falls of pace, Manning's favorite target figures to be Sanders. He has too big of a role in too productive of an offense for you to lose faith in him.


Panthers' Bene Benwikere expected to get starting nickel job back
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:13 pm ET) Panthers cornerback Bene Benwikere is expected to get his starting job back at the nickel once he's fully recovered from an ankle injury, the Associated Press reports. Benwikere was inactive Sunday against the Packers and has not played since Week 5 against the Bears.

Jaguars reconfigure LB depth chart after losing MLB for season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:12 pm ET) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Monday linebacker J.T. Thomas will take over at middle linebacker in the wake of Paul Posluszny suffering a season-ending pectoral injury. Bradley added LaRoy Reynolds and Dekoda Watson will take over at outside linebacker, where Thomas had been starting.

Jaguars CB Alan Ball not expected to practice Wednesday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:08 pm ET) Jaguars cornerback Alan Ball is not expected to practice on Wednesday because of a bicep injury, coach Gus Bradley told reporters on Monday, per ESPN. Ball has 22 combined tackles and one interception on the year. His status remains uncertain for Week 8 at home against Miami.

Jaguars LB Paul Posluszny done for season due to torn pectoral
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:06 pm ET) The Jaguars announced Monday linebacker Paul Posluszny will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn pectoral Sunday against the Browns. He will have surgery this week.

Posluszny leads the Jaguars in tackles (69). He also has two sacks and one pass defense through seven games. Posluszny had recorded 100-plus tackles in his previous six seasons. J.T. Thomas will replace Posluszny at middle linebacker for Jacksonville.
