NFL Recent Player News
|10/23/2016||Kevin Hogan, Cle, QB|
|Hogan replaced an injured Cody Kessler on Sunday and made his first NFL appearance.
Analysis: Hogan, the Browns' sixth quarterback of the season, rushed for 104 yards - including a 28-yard touchdown - but was 12 of 24 for 100 yards and two interceptions.
|10/23/2016||Jerick McKinnon, Min, RB|
|Limited by an ankle injury, McKinnon was held to 43 yards on 11 rush attempts in Sunday's loss at Philadelphia.
Analysis: McKinnon has been underwhelming in his opportunity to be Minnesota's No. 1 back with Adrian Peterson sidelined, averaging just 3.2 yards per carry and generating a mere 29 receiving yards on eight catches. He's become a risky player to use for fantasy purposes.
|10/23/2016||Carlos Dunlap, Cin, DE|
|Dunlap had a sack Sunday.
Analysis: He's recorded all five of his sacks in the last five games.
|10/23/2016||Brandon LaFell, Cin, WR|
|LaFell had four catches for 83 yards and a touchdown Sunday.
Analysis: He's had four TD catches in the last three games.
|10/23/2016||Sam Bradford, Min, QB|
|Bradford received a rude welcome back from the Eagles' defense in his return to Philadelphia. The former Eagles quarterback had three turnovers (2 lost fumbles, 1 interception) and was sacked six times while completing 24 of 41 passes for 224 yards and a touchdown in Minnesota's 21-10 loss.
Analysis: Bradford was likely due for a clunker after completing 70.4 percent of his throws and putting up six touchdowns without an interception in winning his first four starts as a Viking. He should fare considerably better when Minnesota visits lowly Chicago next Monday night.
|10/23/2016||Giovani Bernard, Cin, RB|
|Bernard ran for a season-high 80 yards and scored his first rushing touchdown Sunday.
Analysis: Bernard's value usually comes from his receiving ability, but he had only one reception Sunday. He's caught 30 passes for 263 yards with a TD this season.
|10/23/2016||A.J. Green, Cin, WR|
|Green had eight catches for 169 yards Sunday and made a one-handed 48-yard touchdown catch on the final play of the first half.
Analysis: It was Green's third game with at least 169 receiving yards this season. Overall, he has 50 catches for 775 yards and three TDs in seven contests.
|10/23/2016||Andy Dalton, Cin, QB|
|Dalton passed for 308 yards and two touchdowns, one of which was a 'Hail Mary' to A.J. Green at the end of the first half, to lift the Bengals to a 31-17 victory over the Browns on Sunday.
Analysis: He's played well over the last four games, completing 69.5 percent of his passes for 1,127 yards with six TDs and no INTs.
|10/23/2016||Jeremy Hill, Cin, RB|
|Hill rushed for a career-high 168 yards and had a 74-yard touchdown run Sunday.
Analysis: It was a breakout performance for Hill, who entered with 271 rushing yards in his first six games.
|10/23/2016||Landon Collins, NYG, S|
|Collins picked off a pair of passes, including one he returned for a TD, on Sunday in London.
Analysis: Collins is a solid fantasy option in IDP formats.
|10/23/2016||Tavon Austin, LA, WR|
|Austin had 10 catches for 57 yards and TD on Sunday.
Analysis: This was a season high for receptions by Austin, and he was also targeted 15 times. Consider his fantasy possibility in deeper leagues.
|10/23/2016||Eli Manning, NYG, QB|
|Manning threw for 196 yards without a TD or INT in the win over Los Angeles in London.
Analysis: Manning did not help his fantasy owners with this performance.
|10/23/2016||Case Keenum, LA, QB|
|Keenum remains the starting quarterback for Rams despite throwing four interceptions in Sunday's 17-10 loss to Giants in London.
Analysis: Keenum, who threw for 291 yards and one TD, has been picked off 10 times but for some reason coach Jeff Fisher doesn not believe rookie Jared Goff is ready to take over.
|10/23/2016||Travis Benjamin, SD, WR|
|Benjamin is active for Sunday's game at Atlanta.
Analysis: The speedy wide receiver was listed as questionable with a knee issue that wasn't believed to be serious, though it could explain his low output in San Diego's previous game. Benjamin had just 17 yards on three catches against Denver last week after recording 117 on seven grabs at Oakland the week prior.
|10/23/2016||Josh Norman, Was, CB|
|Norman was ruled out of Sunday's game at Detroit after suffering a concussion in the third quarter.
Analysis: The standout cornerback banged his head against the turf while tackling Marvin Jones on a 52-yard catch and was taken to the locker room following a brief evaluation on the sidelines. Norman will have to pass the NFL's concussion protocol to be cleared for next week's game against Cincinnati.
|10/23/2016||Cody Kessler, Cle, QB|
|Kessler was knocked out of Sunday's game at Cincinnati in the second quarter with a concussion.
Analysis: Kessler had his head slammed hard to the turf on a hit by the Bengals' Carlos Dunlap and was replaced by fellow rookie Kevin Hogan. The former USC quarterback completed 9 of 11 passes for 82 yards prior to departing. The hard-luck Browns are already without their top two quarterbacks, Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown, due to injuries.
|10/23/2016||Geno Smith, NYJ, QB|
|Smith has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and is seeking a second opinion on the injury that would end his season - and likely his time with the team that drafted him.
Analysis: Smith, a second-round pick in 2013, injured his knee while taking a sack from Baltimore's Matt Judon in the second quarter of the Jets' 24-16 win Sunday. Smith, who got the start in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick, had an MRI on Monday. The Jets will now apparently have to turn back to Ryan Fitzpatrick as their starting quarterback.
|10/23/2016||Terron Armstead, NO, T|
|Armstead was carted off the field with a knee injury during the first quarter of Sunday's game at Kansas City, but returned later.
Analysis: Armstead is playing his first game since Week 2, having missed the team's past three with a knee injury as well.
|10/23/2016||Nick Mangold, NYJ, C|
|Mangold exited Sunday's game against Baltimore in the first quarter with a right ankle injury.
Analysis: The Jets have termed their longtime center questionable to return, though he might be done for the day after limping badly to the sidelines and being taken to the locker room. Mangold had been listed questionable for the game with a knee injury he's been battling the past couple weeks.
|10/23/2016||Julius Thomas, Jax, TE|
|Thomas is active for Sunday's game against Oakland.
Analysis: The Jaguars listed the tight end questionable for the contest after he tweaked his ankle during practice this week. Thomas has been a fantasy disappointment so far this season, managing just 13 catches and one touchdown over four games and missing one with an elbow injury.
