Player News

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3:40 pm ET) The NFL suspended Buccaneers defensive end Da'Quan Bowers two games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Bowers' suspension starts immediately. He is eligible to return to practice Monday, Nov. 3.

In five games this season, Bowers has six tackles and a sack.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Jets give WR Jeremy Kerley contract extension
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3:14 pm ET) The Jets signed receiver Jeremy Kerley to a four-year extension through 2018, reports ESPN's Adam Caplan. The $16 million deal includes $5.4 million guaranteed, per Caplan. Kerley has 22 catches for 201 yards and a touchdown this year.

Report: Panthers release S Charles Godfrey
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Steelers LB Ryan Shazier expected to play Week 8
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:59 pm ET) Steelers rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier, who's missed four straight games with a sprained knee, is expected to suit up Week 8 against the Colts, reports ESPN.com.

LeSean McCoy should see bigger role if Darren Sproles is out
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:59 pm ET) With Darren Sproles likely out for Week 8 against the Cardinals, how will the Eagles fill the hole in their offense this Sunday?  

Chris Polk is the third running back on the depth chart, but he might not have the skills to fill in for Sproles. He has just four career receptions in the NFL, and wasn't much of a pass-catcher in college, with a career-high of 31 catches as a senior. And, of course, he is dealing with his own injury issues, with a hamstring that may still keep him sidelined Sunday.

Of course, the Eagles already have a pretty fantastic option to catch passes out of the backfield in LeSean McCoy. McCoy has taken a step back as a pass-catcher this season, with just 16 through six games, but he does have at least 50 in three of the last four seasons. He should do just fine.

This is a tough matchup for McCoy, as the Cardinals have allowed just 10.7 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Still, with McCoy likely to get a steady workload given the injuries, he has to be in your starting lineup for Week 7, even given his struggles.


Report: Ray Rice's appeal to be held Nov. 5-6
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:46 pm ET) The appeal hearing for former Ravens running back Ray Rice will be held Nov. 5-6, reports NFL Network. Rice is appealing his indefinite suspension from the league for a domestic violence incident in February.

Former U.S. District Court Judge Barbara S. Jones will hear and decide the appeal.


Giants RB Andre Williams asked to show more patience
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:38 pm ET) Giants rookie running back Andre Williams often fails to let his blocks materialize, making it harder to find a crease, according to The Star-Ledger. He averaged 3.1 yards per carry over the past two weeks as Rashad Jennings' replacement.

"I think for all young players, they have a tendency to really get in a hurry, but I think that he is getting more patient as he continues to go," running backs coach Craig Johnson said.

The Giants are on a bye Week 8 before hosting the Colts in Week 9 on Monday Night Football. Jennings hopes to return from his knee injury against Indy, but if he can't Williams will make his third start.


Patriots' running back situation mostly clear
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2:22 pm ET) Forget about Brandon Bolden. The Patriots' use of him against the Jets in Week 7 -- he played only one snap -- pretty much tells the story there. Granted, they've had their share of about-faces at the running back spot over the last few years, so I wouldn't dare claim to know what they're thinking, but if they've decided their next-best choice at the position is Jonas Gray, who at least saw the field for 11 plays Thursday, it's pretty clear what direction they intend to go, right?

With that in mind, I cautiously, carefully and with a preemptive tinge of regret plan to start Shane Vereen Week 8 against Chicago and hopefully every week thereafter. Yes, he played 80 percent of the snaps in Week 7, and yes, he scored two touchdowns. But you'll notice both of them came through the air. True, he also got more than two-thirds of the Patriots' carries, but I can't help but wonder if in a different matchup, one that encouraged them to pound the ball instead of rushing just 15 times as a team, they would have been more creative. That would work to Vereen's detriment, obviously.

For more of my biggest takeaways from Week 7, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.
