O Daniels (BAL)

Owen Daniels Out 2-4 Weeks With Knee Injury
Ravens tight end Owen Daniels has his knee scoped on Friday and is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

Fantasy Spin:
The Ravens are likely to use Crockett Gillmore, though you may see more three-wide sets.

R Wayne (IND)
H Nicks (IND)
D Moncrief (IND)

Reggie Wayne Ruled Out For Week 8
Colts receiver Reggie Wayne (elbow) is out for Week 8's matchup against Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Spin:
Wayne has only posted fantasy-worthy numbers once this season and is more security blanket for Andrew Luck than fantasy asset. Donte Moncrief is likelt to see more of an increase than Hakeen Nicks.
06:17 PM
T Richardson (IND)

Richardson Downgraded To Doubtful For Week 8
Colts running back Trent Richardson should be downgraded to doubtful after missing Friday's practice and making it a clean sweep for the week.

Fantasy Spin:
Playing part-time behind Richardson, Ahmad Bradhaw is averaging almost 60 ypg and a touchdown. With Richardson out, Bradshaw becomes a very good fantasy option.

A Green (CIN)
M Sanu (CIN)

A.J. Green Didn't Practice At All Heading Into Week 8
Bengals receiver A.J. Green didn't practice Friday and can't be considered anything but doubtful for Sunday.

Fantasy Spin:
Green's fantasy owners should have another plan in place because it's not looking good for him to start in Week 8. Mohamed Sanu owners get a reprieve.
06:11 PM
C Johnson (DET)

Calvin Johnson Listed As Game Time Decision For Week 8
Lions receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) is expected to be a game-time decision.

Fantasy Spin:
Fortunately for fantasy owners, game-time is 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning so if he doesn't play you have plenty of time to make your alternate plans. Golden Tate will continue to be a borderline WR1 for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons if Megatron sits.

R Bush (DET)
J Bell (DET)

Reggie Bush Not Practicing Friday
Detroit running back Reggie Bush is not practicing again Friday, but claims he'll be ready for Sunday against Atlanta, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Fantasy Spin:
Bush has admitted that the ankle still isn't healed and is bothering him and after his invisible performance in Week 7 fantasy owners shouldn't expect anything against Atlanta in Week 8.

E Royal (SDC)

Eddie Royal Stays Under 50 Yards For 4th Straight Game
San Diego receiver Eddie Royal's caught just three balls for 29 yards in The Thursday night loss to Denver.

Fantasy Spin:
Royal has been quiet over the past four games with just 138 yards and one touchdown over the span. That's not fantasy worthy.
01:40 PM
M Floyd (SDC)

Malcom Floyd Unable To Haul In Deep Targets In Week 8
San Diego receiver Malcom Floyd left the game briefly after falling hard on his shoulder but returned to catch four balls for 58 yards.

Fantasy Spin:
He's a boom-or-bust receiver because he's the Charger's deep threat with Keenan Allen the possession receiver and Antonio Gates the red zone guy.
01:37 PM
K Allen (SDC)

Keenan Allen Comes Alive On Thursday Night Football
Chargers receiver Keenan Allen led the team with 13 targets, catching nine for 73 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Spin:
With the Broncos great pass rush, short, quick passes were the strategy for the night which is why Allen finished the day with just an 8.1 yards-per-catch average.
01:35 PM
A Gates (SDC)

Gates Scores Twice In Week 8
Chargers tight end Antonio Gates continues to be Philip Rivers' favorite target in the red zone.

Fantasy Spin:
Some things never change. Gates is adept at getting just enough room for Rivers to stuff it in there. Thursday night he scored twice from inside the 10-yard line.
01:33 PM
P Rivers (SDC)

Rivers Throws Three TDs for 4th time in Five Games
Chargers QB Philip Rivers was forced to throw more than he would like and ended up 30-of-41 for 252 yards, three scores and two interceptions.

Fantasy Spin:
It wasn't a great night, but it likely won't kill fantasy owners. Rivers is still producing top-five statistics at the quarterback position and one "off" night won't change that.
01:31 PM
B Oliver (SDC)

Oliver Struggles Against Tough Broncos Defense
Charger rookie running back Branden Oliver was once again the workhorse (20 touches), but struggled to find any open space.

Fantasy Spin:
Oliver carried the ball 13 times for just 36 yards and caught seven balls for 27 yards and didn't score. The Denver defense doesn't get noticed with their media-fed offense stealing the show, but they are pretty good and Oliver will have better days down the road against weaker teams.
01:28 PM
W Welker (DEN)

Welker Goes Catchless In Week 8
Broncos receiver Wes Welker's best contributions Thursday night didn't include catching the ball.

Fantasy Spin:
He blocked well on flanker screens and recovered an Emmanuel Sanders fumble late in the game. Welker is the fourth option these days behind the "Thomas Brothers" and Emmanuel Sanders, so his fantasy value is limited.
01:24 PM
J Thomas (DEN)

Julius Thomas The Odd Man Out vs. Chargers
Broncos tight end Julius Thomas posted a second consecutive disappointing output, catching just two of six targets for 23 yards.

Fantasy Spin:
Thomas has been living off touchdown passes without many yards and over the past two games it's caught up with him. It's inevitable that Peyton Manning will start finding him again.
01:22 PM
E Sanders (DEN)

Sanders Gets A TD Hat-Trick In Week 8
Receiver Emmanuel Sanders was Peyton Mannings No. 1 receiver Thursday night catching all nine targets for 120 yards and three scores.

Fantasy Spin:
Sanders has mostly been used as a "move-the-chains-guy" with Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas doing the scoring - until Thursday night. He is averaging 90 yards per game receiving.
