Redskins Excited To Have RG3 Back Under Center
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (ankle) will start Sunday against Minnesota, according to NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini.

Fantasy Spin:
Griffin practiced in full on Wednesday, so we feel that Russini's report is correct. However, owners need to wait until coach Jay Gruden gives official word, which should come on either Thursday or Friday.

Chargers Won't Rush Mathews Back Into Action
Chargers running back Ryan Mathews will not be rushed back because Branden Oliver is playing so well in the San Diego backfield.

Fantasy Spin:
Mathews have not played since Sept. 14, and it "appears likely" he will be held out through the Week 10 bye according to the Union-Tribune San Diego. If you have held on to him this long, don't drop him. Remain patient because Mathews may return to be the starter.

D Martin (TBB)

Bucs RB Martin In Walking Boot
Buccaneers running back Doug Martin was in a walking boot on Wednesday due to an ankle injury he suffered in Week 8 against the Vikings.

Fantasy Spin:
He did not practice on Wednesday, and his status for Week 9 is unclear. Bobby Rainey and Charles Sims will have a chance to start if Martin can't go. Check back on Thursday for another Martin update.

A Green (CIN)

A.J. Green Back At Practice
Bengals receiver A.J. Green practiced on Wednesday according to ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey.

Fantasy Spin:
We don't normally care that much if a player practices or not on Wednesday, but this was Green's first Wednesday practice in about a month. He is going to try and play against the Jaguars on Sunday. If he does, we do not expect his snaps to be limited.

B Weeden (DAL)

Romo Will Be A Game Time Decision
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is calling quarterback Tony Romo a game-time decision according to ESPN's Ed Werner.

Fantasy Spin:
Werner also added Romo will sit out all practices this week and could miss some time, 1-to-2 games. That is enough for fantasy owners to want to pick up another quarterback, just in case, Brandon Weeden will start in place of Romo.
02:57 PM
C Johnson (DET)

Calvin Johnson Will Return After Bye Week
Lions receiver Calvin Johnson expects to return to action after the Lions' Week 9 bye.

Fantasy Spin:
Johnson has been out since Week 5 and will be a huge addition to any team thats has been able to survivor his absence. He will be good to go for the plyaoffs.

J Graham (NOS)

Jimmy Graham Still Limited In Practice
Saints tight end Jimmy Graham remained limited in Tuesday's practice due to his shoulder.

Fantasy Spin:
This is simply a formality. There is no reason Graham owners should be concerned even on a short week. The tight end played in 43-of-69 snaps against Green Bay and did not suffer a setback. He is a top-three tight end option for Week 9.

Gruden On RG3: "Close" To Returning
Redskins coach Jay Gruden continued to say on Tuesday that Robert Griffin III is close to returning

Fantasy Spin:
Gruden has said for weeks that Griffin might play probably to give opponents the feeling that they need to prepare for him. We believe Gruden when he says Griffin is close, but we expect him to return in Week 11 after the Redskins Week 10 bye. That just makes too much sense.

J Cameron (CLE)

Browns TE Cameron Expected To Miss Two Weeks
Browns tight end Jordan Cameron is dealing with a concussion and his availability for the next two weeks is reportedly in doubt, according to a Cleveland Plain Dealer report.

Fantasy Spin:
Cameron's concussion is the third in two years and that's a huge red flag. He suffered the injury on a hit from Brandian Ross of the Raiders.

D Williams (CAR)
J Stewart (CAR)

DeAngelo Williams Will Start In Week 9
Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams will start in Week 9, according to Panthers coach Ron Rivera

Fantasy Spin:
Williams will still share time with Jonathan Stewart so his fantasy value still has an upper limit. Williams hasn't played since Wee4 due to an ankle injury.

J Bell (DET)
R Bush (DET)

Three Man Rotation In Lions Backfield?
Lions running back Theo Riddick could be added to the Reggie Bush/Joique Bell tandem going forward after a solid game against Atlanta, according to Lions beat writer Tim Twentyman.

Fantasy Spin:
Riddick was Matthews Stafford's primary backfield receiver catching eight balls for 74 yards and a touchdown. A three-man rotation would pretty much rule out any of the trio being fantasy worthy.
03:36 AM
T Romo (DAL)

Tony Romo Has Back Contusion
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo left Monday Night's game against the Redskins but returned to the game for the last drive of the fourth quarter and overtime.

Fantasy Spin:
Washington sacked Romo for the fourth time early in the third quarter. Romo took the brunt of the hit in his back. The Dallas quarterback had surgery on his back in the offseason. Romo's status is unknown, and the Cowboys turn to Brandon Weeden.

G Smith (NYJ)

Jets Name Mick Vick Week 9 Starter
Jets quarterback Michael Vick will start in Week 9 against the Chiefs according to the New York Daily News.

Fantasy Spin:
This is great news to anyone with the Kansas City defense or hoping to pick the Chiefs in a survivor league. Actually, it doesn't really matter if Geno Smith or Vick, Kansas City's defense is a great start next week. Vick can more the offense better than Smith, but Vick is just as turnoever prone.

S Taylor (ARI)
M Grice (SDC)

Cardinals RB Taylor Will Miss At Least A Month
Cardinals No. 2 running back Stepfan Taylor is expected to miss time due to a calf injury suffered early in the game against Philadelphia.

Fantasy Spin:
Andre Ellington has been carrying the workload, but Taylor has been usefull in the red zone. Marion Grice figures to inherit the backup role.

B Quick (STL)

Quick May Be Done For The Season With Torn Rotator Cuff
Rams receiver Brian Quick's injury is a dislocated shoulder and torn rotator cuff, according to Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Spin:
Quick is likely done for the season, if that's true. he had taken a giant leap forward this season and in the seven games he played, he had already set career highs for receptions (25), yards (375) and touchdowns (3).
