Rob Kelley RB WAS (9) 13 hours ago
Kelley rushed the ball four times for 15 yards and one reception for a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Lions.
With Matt Jones sidelined for the majority of the game after being involved in two fumbles in the first quarter, Kelley and Chris Thompson got increased carries. The rookie scored his first career touchdown on a one-yard play action pass. "It felt pretty good. It's something you dream about as a kid, and it actually happened for me this time," Kelley said. If Matt Jones continues to struggle against the Bengals this week, look for Kelley to see extra action.
QRoy Miller DL JAC (5) 13 hours ago
Miller suffered an Achilles injury in Sunday's loss to the Raiders, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.
The severity of the injury is unknown, but it should be noted that Miller was unable to return to the game. The Jaguars have a short week, as they play the Titans Thursday, so Miller's status will have to be monitored going forward.
Caleb Sturgis K PHI (4) 14 hours ago
Sturgis converted both of his field-goal attempts and his only PAT during Sunday's 21-10 victory over the Vikings.
Sturgis has operated as one of the more consistent fantasy options at kicker all season, having converted at least two kicks in every game and only missing one attempt on the year. With the Eagles' offense having largely been able to move the ball effectively as well, Sturgis' fantasy totals have concurrently been supplemented with a healthy dose of PATs. However, the Eagles will travel to Dallas in Week 8 to take on a Cowboys defense allowing the sixth-least points per game to opposing offenses this year.
Pierre Garcon WR WAS (9) 14 hours ago
Garcon hauled in two receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
Garcon had a very quiet day when he had an opportunity to produce big numbers with Jordan Reed (concussion) and DeSean Jackson battling a shoulder injury. Look for the 30-year-old to bounce back this week against the Bengals.
Josh Huff WR PHI (4) 14 hours ago
Huff caught all four of his targets for 39 yards Sunday against the Vikings, also returning a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown.
Huff broke free to house his second career kickoff return in the second quarter, marking the first time in Eagles history the team scored on kick returns in consecutive games. What's more, Huff -- for the first time all season -- led Philadelphia in both receptions and receiving yards despite Nelson Agholor pacing the team in targets (6). However, Huff is a long shot to receive this kind of attention on a weekly basis and remains an ancillary option behind all of Jordan Matthews, Agholor, Dorial Green-Beckham, Darren Sproles and Zach Ertz in the passing game.
QTevin Coleman RB ATL (11) 14 hours ago
Coleman (hamstring) appears unlikely to play Sunday against the Packers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Meanwhile, ESPN.com relays that coach Dan Quinn said he'll know more about Coleman's hamstring strain in the next couple of days, but at this point the running back is looking pretty iffy for Week 8. For now, Devonta Freeman the only running other back on the Falcons' active roster, though Terron Ward is on the team's practice squad and seems likely to be promoted in short order. If Coleman ends up missing Sunday's game, it would presumably result in added touches in the Atlanta offense for Freeman this weekend.
DeSean Jackson WR WAS (9) 14 hours ago
Jackson hauled in five receptions for 35 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Lions.
The veteran was dealing with shoulder issues all week causing him to miss practice Wednesday or Thursday. Jackson has only found the end zone once this season in Week 3's win over the Giants and hasn't had a game with over five receptions since Week 1. With Jordan Reed still questionable due to concussion issues, the wideout could see increased targets this week against the Bengals.
QHunter Henry TE SD (11) 14 hours ago
Henry has entered the NFL's concussion protocol, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.
In the aftermath of Sunday's win in Atlanta, Henry experienced concussion-like symptoms and will thus be subject to a five-step process in order to be cleared for action. There's little doubt that his practice participation will be impacted this week, but every head injury is its own test case, so the release of Wednesday's injury report will be one to examine closely. If he requires time to recover, veteran Antonio Gates will chew up the majority of TE snaps Sunday at Denver.
Robert Quinn DL LA (8) 14 hours ago
Quinn logged just 11 snaps during the Rams' 17-10 loss to the Giants on Sunday.
Eugene Sims received the start since Quinn hadn't suited up since Week 4 due to a shoulder injury. With the Rams on bye in Week 8, though, it seemed the Los Angeles coaching staff was comfortable with almost exclusively deploying Quinn during obvious passing situations and not much else. However, with a week of rest to look forward to, Quinn should enter Week 9's matchup against the Panthers healthier and ready for his usual allotment of playing time.
Clay Harbor TE DET (10) 14 hours ago
Harbor secured both of his targets for 16 yards Sunday against the Redskins.
With Eric Ebron (knee) and Brandon Pettigrew (knee - ACL) still out of commission, only a trio of Harbor, Khari Lee and Cole Wick remained to make up the Lions' tight end corps Sunday. Out of those three, Harbor was the only one to see any attention at all in the passing game, and that's now been the case for two consecutive weeks. The Missouri State product hasn't been able to carve out a significant target share amongst all Lions pass catchers, though, as Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and Anquan Boldin have operated as QB Matthew Stafford's go-to options downfield. Such a trend is unlikely to change anytime soon, and with both Ebron and Pettigrew each nearing a return, Harbor's receiving totals only stand to decrease in the coming weeks.
