H2H Salary Cap

Latest Player News

Mychal Rivera (W, Oak)

Mychal Rivera hauled in one reception for 13 yards on his lone target during Sunday's win over the Jaguars.


Rivera along with fellow tight end Clive Walford combined for just two total catches for 18 yards, while quarterback Derek Carr connected with his core of four different wide receivers a total of 17 times. The Raiders' tight end situation in recent weeks hasn't looked promising despite the team's offensive success, while Rivera remains slightly behind Walford in the pecking order at this point.

Seth Roberts (W, Oak)

Seth Roberts saw nine targets during Sunday's win over the Jaguars, leading to four catches for 42 yards.


Roberts recorded season highs in receptions, receiving yardage, and targets during the Raiders' Week 7 tilt. Quarterback Derek Carr continues to favor his wide receivers over tight ends Clive Walford and Mychal Rivera, so given his volume lately Roberts could produce in deeper leagues eventually. He'll next look to take advantage of his opportunities Week 8 in Tampa Bay.

Clive Walford (W, Oak)

Clive Walford reeled in just one catch for five yards on two targets during Sunday's win over the Jaguars.


Walford has caught no more than two balls in a given week since Week 2 against Atlanta when he made six receptions for 50 yards and a score. He wasn't even the leading tight end for the Raiders on Sunday, with Mychal Rivera securing one catch for 13 yards. Quarterback Derek Carr seems to be clicking much more consistently with his top receivers in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, limiting the value of his tight ends at this point. Walford will look to turn things around next week against the Buccaneers.

Jalen Richard recorded one yard on just one carry to go along with one catch for no gain on one target during Sunday's win over the Jaguars.


The Raiders elected to heavily involve usual starter Latavius Murray in his return from a turf toe injury, leaving Richard with little opportunity behind fellow backup rookie running back DeAndre Washington. This marks Richard's worst career performance thus far through seven weeks, while his value is somewhat limited to return yardage with Murray healthy.

DeAndre Washington (R, Oak)

DeAndre Washington carried the ball five times for 16 yards to go along with one catch on two targets for six yards during Sunday's win over the Jaguars.


Washington saw a reduced role Week 7 due to the return of usual starting running back Latavius Murray from a turf toe injury. Murray found the end zone twice on 18 carries, but failed to hit the 60-yard mark. Washington did outplay fellow rookie Jalen Richard, who had just two touches for one total yard. Washington continues to be the No. 2 option out of the backfield for the Raiders, but when Murray is healthy his fantasy value is limited to deeper leagues.

Derek Newton was diagnosed with torn patella tendons in both knees after exiting Sunday's game against the Broncos, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.


A single patella rupture would be a season-ending injury, and it's almost unheard of for a player to suffer similar tears in both legs during a single incident. Depending on the extent of the additional damage, Newton may still have a shot to return at some point next season.

Head coach Pete Carroll indicated in his press conference Monday that Bradley Sowell suffered a sprained MCL in Sunday's game, and is expected to be sidelined for a few weeks.


J'Marcus Webb will presumably fill in at left tackle while Sowell is sidelined. Expect an update on Sowell's status when the team makes more information available.

Lamar Miller (R, Hou)

Lamar Miller appeared to injure his shoulder in the first half of Monday's game against Denver, KPRC-TV's Adam Wexler reports.


Miller was in and out of the game in the second quarter, ceding more work than usual to top backup Alfred Blue. Both running backs finished the first half with six carries – a number that equals Blue's previous season-high mark. The Texans haven't announced an injury, suggesting Miller could be available after halftime, though possibly in a limited capacity.

Chris Boswell (K, Pit)

Chris Boswell converted three of five field-goal attempts and his only PAT during Sunday's game against the Patriots.


The 60 percent accuracy certainly left points on the table for fantasy owners, but Boswell's game-long from 46 yards out proved he possesses the leg necessary to convert field goals from distance. With Ben Roethlisberger (knee) uncertain to return even after the Steelers' Week 8 bye, Boswell may continue to be relied on to rack up points for a sputtering, Landry Jones-led offense.

Head coach Chip Kelly indicated Monday that Arik Armstead (shoulder) "seems to be fine" after leaving Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers early, Matt Maiocco of the CSN Bay Area reports.


Armstead recorded four tackles before making a premature exit Sunday. The 49ers are entering their bye week, so the 22-year-old will have some extra time to recover from the injury.

The Patriots opted to waive Anthony Johnson on Monday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.


The decision to waive Johnson comes a day after he received his first start of the year. The 23-year-old recorded two tackles in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He is considered a strong candidate to return to the team's practice squad.

Eli Rogers (W, Pit)

Eli Rogers was active but did not see the field Sunday against the Patriots.


Antonio Brown, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Cobi Hamilton lead the Steelers' wideout corps in snaps Sunday. Considering the injured Sammie Coates (finger) was the only other pass catcher to see the field – despite there being nothing to suggest Rogers is also operating at less than full strength – the Louisville product appears to have fallen out of favor with the Pittsburgh coaching staff.

Rashard Robinson (knee) sustained an MCL sprain in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.


Robinson had recorded three tackles prior to being forced out of Sunday's contest. There is currently no time table for his recovery, but the 49ers are entering their bye week.

Cobi Hamilton caught three of six targets for 36 yards Sunday against the Patriots.


Hamilton saw much more attention in the passing game during his second career regular season game than he did in his first last week against the Dolphins, though his catch rate undoubtedly left something to be desired. However, with teammate Sammie Coates (finger) likely to return to full strength sooner rather than later and the Steelers on bye in Week 8, Hamilton could quickly fall off the fantasy radar.

Aaron Lynch suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.


Lynch had recorded three tackles and a sack before being forced out of Sunday's game. The 49ers are currently entering their bye week, so he will have some extra time to rest before their next game against the Saints on Nov. 6.

Jesse James (W, Pit)

Jesse James caught both of this targets for 18 yards Sunday against the Patriots.


The second-year tight end out of Penn State has operated as the Steelers' top option at tight end this season, especially in the receiving department. The amount of targets he receives is variable week-to-week, though, making James a touchdown-dependent fantasy option moving forward. However, the impending return of Ladarius Green (ankle) may dampen his prospects in the near future.

Head coach Pete Carroll indicated Monday the team is "very optimistic" Kam Chancellor (groin) can return to action this week, Liz Mathews of ESPN reports.


Chancellor has missed the previous two contests for Seattle as he has dealt with a groin injury. While his status should continue to be monitored throughout the week, he appears to be trending toward a return Sunday. Kelcie McCray has filled in at strong safety in Chancellor's absence.

La'el Collins (toe) continues to rehab, and has not ruled out the possibility of returning in 2016.


Collins was placed on injured reserve after Week 4 due to a foot injury. Each team in the NFL is allowed to activate one player from the IR during the season after a minimum of eight weeks, thus Week 13 would be the earliest Collins could return. It is unclear at this time how far along the second-year guard is in his recovery, but he indicated he is focused on his rehab. While this update is cause for optimism, it remains to be seen how realistic of a goal it is.

Joe Callahan was claimed off waivers by the Browns on Monday, Cleveland.com reports.


After an impressive preseason with the Packers followed be a brief stint with the Saints, Callahan was presumably claimed by Cleveland due to the fact that starting signal caller Cody Kessler resides in concussion protocol. Moreover, it's still uncertain when Josh McCown (collarbone) will return. If neither Kessler or McCown can play this week, rookie Kevin Hogan will likely get the start given his familiarity with head coach Hue Jackson's offensive scheme, leaving Callahan to claim backup status for his first game with his new team.

Head coach Hue Jackson reiterated Monday that Joe Thomas is not on the trading block, NFL.com reports.


The veteran left tackle has often been mentioned in trade conversation given the point he is at in his career, and where the Browns currently are as a franchise. However, Jackson stated Monday that Thomas has "a lot to do with what we're trying to accomplish here in the future". The 31-year-old is signed through the 2018 season, and still considered one of the best left tackles in football.
