10/23/2017 Graham Gano, Car, K
Gano is considered questionable for Week 8.

Analysis: is reporting that Gano has some type of injury, so keep an eye on this situation.
10/23/2017 Jay Cutler, Mia, QB
Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase says quarterback Jay Cutler has multiple cracked ribs, making it unlikely he'll play Thursday at Baltimore.

Analysis: Matt Moore is expected to start in Cutler's place after coming off the bench Sunday to lead a 31-28 comeback victory against the New York Jets.
10/23/2017 Joe Thomas, Cle, T
Numb from losing, the Cleveland Browns suffered perhaps their biggest loss yet - Joe Thomas won't play again this season.

Analysis: The perennial Pro Bowl left tackle - and iron man - tore his left triceps Sunday against Tennessee, and an MRI taken on Monday confirmed the severity of an injury that has dealt another devastating blow to an already floundering franchise.
10/23/2017 Kareem Hunt, KC, RB
Hunt is on pace to finish with 284 carries, which would have ranked fifth in the league last season. He is also on pace to catch 57 passes, giving him well over 300 touches. That would surpass any kind of workload he had during his four years at Toledo.

Analysis: The Chiefs hope to have Charcandrick West for their game Monday night against Denver, but that probably doesn't mean that Hunt's workload is going to ease much. That's music to fantasy owners' ears.
10/23/2017 Ezekiel Elliott, Dal, RB
Elliott will play at least one more game before another ruling from a federal judge on his six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations.

Analysis: U.S. District Judge Katherine Polk Failla in an order posted Monday turned down the NFL's request for an expedited hearing on a preliminary injunction. She set one for Oct. 30, a day after the Cowboys visit Washington.
10/23/2017 Martavis Bryant, Pit, WR
Bryant appears to be asking for a trade again when he posted "give me what I want" on social media.

Analysis: Bryant on a since-deleted Instagram post late Sunday night also called out rookie receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who caught a 31-yard touchdown in the the Steelers' 29-14 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon. "He wants out," a source close to Bryant told ESPN. "Point blank." Last week, the NFL Network reported that Bryant wanted out due to a lack of playing time. He was targeted three times and had one catch for three yards Sunday against the Bengals.
10/23/2017 Duane Brown, Hou, T
Brown has returned to the Texans after a holdout.

Analysis: Brown, whose contract expires after the 2018 season, has been losing almost $553,000 a week in game checks for not reporting because of a contract dispute. The Texans can get a two-week roster exemption if they need that long for him to be ready to play.
10/23/2017 Malcom Brown, NE, DT
Brown exited Sunday's game against Atlanta in the third quarter with an ankle injury.

Analysis: No word on the severity, though that's par for the course with the Patriots. Brown isn't a real difference maker on a statistical level but is a key starter and run-stopper on the interior of New England's defensive line.
10/23/2017 Matt Bryant, Atl, K
Matt Bryant missed both of his field-goal attempts, a 37- and 36-yarder, in the Atlanta Falcons' 23-7 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. Bryant tacked on one PAT.

Analysis: Bryant has now missed three of four field goal attempts over the last two games after going 9 for 9 over the first four. The 42-year-old leg tends to be a bit shakier in outdoor games, and he's got another coming up with a visit to the Jets next weekend.
10/23/2017 Stephen Gostkowski, NE, K
Stephen Gostkowski converted three of three field-goal attempts Sunday as the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons 23-7. He made kicks of 29, 21 and 38 yards. Gostkowski tacked on two PATs.

Analysis: Gostkowski booted through at least three field goals for the fourth time in seven games this season and is now 16 for 17 on 3-point tries for the year. Fantasy owners should keep rolling with a kicker who's annually among the scoring leaders in all formats.
10/22/2017 Laquon Treadwell, Min, WR
Laquon Treadwell had three receptions for 28 yards Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 24-16 win over the Baltimore Ravens.
10/22/2017 Benjamin Watson, Bal, TE
Benjamin Watson had five receptions for 38 yards Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 24-16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
10/22/2017 Kai Forbath, Min, K
Kai Forbath converted six of six field-goal attempts Sunday as the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Baltimore Ravens 24-16.

Analysis: Forbath made kicks of 52, 51, 43, 43, 34 and 32 yards to back another suffocating effort from the defense for the Vikings (5-2).
10/22/2017 Reuben Foster, SF, LB
Foster sustained a rib injury in the third quarter Sunday against the Cowboys.

Analysis: Foster returned to action for the first time since sustaining an ankle injury in Week 1 against Carolina and started.
10/22/2017 Jay Cutler, Mia, QB
Cutler left Sunday's game against the Jets due to cracked ribs, according to multiple reports.

Analysis: Cutler, who tossed two touchdown passes in the first half, was hit hard by Jets linebacker Jordan Jenkins and left the game in the third quarter clutching his chest. NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport tweeted that Cutler is feared to have cracked ribs and that he will likely miss Thursday's game against Baltimore pending test results. Matt Moore replaced Cutler and led the Dolphins to a 31-28 comeback win.
10/22/2017 DeShone Kizer, Cle, QB
Kizer has been benched again after throwing interceptions on consecutive passes.

Analysis: Kizer was picked off late in the first half and on Cleveland's first possession of the third quarter - both picks by Titans safety Kevin Byard. He obviously isn't a fantasy option right now.
10/22/2017 Malik Hooker, Ind, S
The Indianapolis Colts have lost safety Malik Hooker, their first-round draft pick, late in the first half with what appears to be an injured right knee.

Analysis: Hooker was injured on a 50-yard pass play from Blake Bortles to Allen Hurns - yet another tough moment in a rugged first half in which the Colts trailed Jacksonville 17-0. There was no immediate update on the injury.
10/22/2017 Andre Ellington, Ari, RB
Ellington is inactive for the Cardinals' game against the Rams.

Analysis: Useless as a running back, Ellington had recorded nine reception in two of his past three games, but won't play in this one.
10/22/2017 Mike Wallace, Bal, WR
Wallace is being evaluated for a concussion in Sunday's game against the Vikings, his former team.

Analysis: He won't return and is likely to be entering concussion protocol.
10/22/2017 Leonard Fournette, Jax, RB
Fournette has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Analysis: It seemed like he might give it a go despite missing three straight days of practice, but Fournette will sit after getting 49 carries the past two weeks.
