10/23/2017 Mychal Kendricks, Phi, LB
Kendricks (hamstring) is inactive for Monday night's game against Washington.

Analysis: Kendricks, third among Philadelphia players with 32 tackles, was listed as questionable coming in. Middle linebacker Jordan Hicks, also questionable with a calf injury, is in the starting lineup for this key NFC East matchup.
10/23/2017 Wendell Smallwood, Phi, RB
The Eagles will have Smallwood (knee) back from a two-game absence for Monday night's game against Washington.

Analysis: The second-year back shouldn't have any restrictions after practicing fully during the week. Though LeGarrette Blount has since established himself as the Eagles' best ground-gainer, Smallwood could have a prominent role on passing downs.
10/23/2017 Bashaud Breeland, Was, CB
Breeland (knee) is active for Monday's game at Philadelphia.

Analysis: Breeland had been expected to play despite being listed questionable on the final injury report, and the Redskins need him to be available with shutdown corner Josh Norman still out with a broken rib.
10/23/2017 Trent Williams, Was, T
Williams (knee) is active for Monday night's game at Philadelphia.

Analysis: The Redskins' standout left tackle had been listed as questionable after practicing sparingly during the week. Williams' availability is good news for a Washington offensive line that had trouble protecting Kirk Cousins in the team's Week 1 loss to the Eagles, in which Philly recorded four sacks and returned a Cousins fumble for a touchdown.
10/23/2017 Rob Kelley, Was, RB
Kelley (ankle) is active for Monday's game at Philadelphia.

Analysis: Kelley, Washington's leading rusher last season, returns from a one-game absence and should regain his role as the team's primary back on running downs. The second-year pro led the backfield in touches in Week 1's matchup with the Eagles, but managed just 30 rushing yards on 10 attempts.
10/23/2017 Andrew Sendejo, Min, S
Sendejo was suspended one game by the NFL on Monday for a hit Sunday on Mike Wallace that caused the Ravens wide receiver to leave the game with a concussion.

Analysis: Sendejo is tied for second on the Vikings with 42 tackles and has on INT in six games.
10/23/2017 Malik Hooker, Ind, S
Hooker will miss the rest of the season after injuring his right knee in Sunday's game.

Analysis: Coach Chuck Pagano told reporters Monday that an MRI revealed the rookie had torn the ACL and MCL during a 27-0 loss to Jacksonville. Hooker, the No. 15 overall pick in April, played well after becoming a starter in Week 2. His three interceptions were tied for third in the NFL and he was seventh on the Colts (2-5) with 22 tackles.
10/23/2017 Delanie Walker, Ten, TE
Coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that exams showed Walker more of a bone bruise than a sprained ankle for Walker, who suffered in the injury in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Analysis: Whether or not Walker is available Nov. 5 when the Titans (4-3) host Baltimore (3-4) will depend on how the veteran handles the pain. Walker currently is in a walking boot.
10/23/2017 Eli Manning, NYG, QB
Ben McAdoo is sticking with Eli Manning as the New York Giants' quarterback in what has become a frustrating, lost season.

Analysis: McAdoo made it clear Monday that the Giants' 1-6 record is not grounds for handing the quarterback job to third-round draft pick Davis Webb so the team can evaluate him in regular-season action. There is no question the offense has struggled as it heads into a bye week. It has scored 112 points, which is the fifth fewest in the league.
10/23/2017 Jay Ajayi, Mia, RB
Ajayi was limited in practice on Monday due to ongoing knee and elbow issues.

Analysis: Ajayi has been a bit of a disappointment so far, but we don't believe he's in jeopardy of sitting Week 8.
10/23/2017 Graham Gano, Car, K
Gano is considered questionable for Week 8.

Analysis: NFL.com is reporting that Gano has some type of injury, so keep an eye on this situation.
10/23/2017 Jay Cutler, Mia, QB
Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase says quarterback Jay Cutler has multiple cracked ribs, making it unlikely he'll play Thursday at Baltimore.

Analysis: Matt Moore is expected to start in Cutler's place after coming off the bench Sunday to lead a 31-28 comeback victory against the New York Jets.
10/23/2017 Joe Thomas, Cle, T
Numb from losing, the Cleveland Browns suffered perhaps their biggest loss yet - Joe Thomas won't play again this season.

Analysis: The perennial Pro Bowl left tackle - and iron man - tore his left triceps Sunday against Tennessee, and an MRI taken on Monday confirmed the severity of an injury that has dealt another devastating blow to an already floundering franchise.
10/23/2017 Kareem Hunt, KC, RB
Hunt is on pace to finish with 284 carries, which would have ranked fifth in the league last season. He is also on pace to catch 57 passes, giving him well over 300 touches. That would surpass any kind of workload he had during his four years at Toledo.

Analysis: The Chiefs hope to have Charcandrick West for their game Monday night against Denver, but that probably doesn't mean that Hunt's workload is going to ease much. That's music to fantasy owners' ears.
10/23/2017 Ezekiel Elliott, Dal, RB
Elliott will play at least one more game before another ruling from a federal judge on his six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations.

Analysis: U.S. District Judge Katherine Polk Failla in an order posted Monday turned down the NFL's request for an expedited hearing on a preliminary injunction. She set one for Oct. 30, a day after the Cowboys visit Washington.
10/23/2017 Martavis Bryant, Pit, WR
Bryant appeared to be asking for a trade again when he posted "give me what I want" on social media Sunday night and then did not show up to team meetings on Monday due to an illness. Bryant's agent, Thomas Santanello, told ESPN that Bryant went to see a doctor Monday morning.

Analysis: Bryant on a since-deleted Instagram post late Sunday night also called out rookie receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who caught a 31-yard touchdown in the the Steelers' 29-14 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon. "He wants out," a source close to Bryant told ESPN. "Point blank." Last week, the NFL Network reported that Bryant wanted out due to a lack of playing time. He was targeted three times and had one catch for three yards Sunday against the Bengals.
10/23/2017 Duane Brown, Hou, T
Brown has returned to the Texans after a holdout.

Analysis: Brown, whose contract expires after the 2018 season, has been losing almost $553,000 a week in game checks for not reporting because of a contract dispute. The Texans can get a two-week roster exemption if they need that long for him to be ready to play.
10/23/2017 Malcom Brown, NE, DT
Brown exited Sunday's game against Atlanta in the third quarter with an ankle injury.

Analysis: No word on the severity, though that's par for the course with the Patriots. Brown isn't a real difference maker on a statistical level but is a key starter and run-stopper on the interior of New England's defensive line.
10/23/2017 Matt Bryant, Atl, K
Matt Bryant missed both of his field-goal attempts, a 37- and 36-yarder, in the Atlanta Falcons' 23-7 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. Bryant tacked on one PAT.

Analysis: Bryant has now missed three of four field goal attempts over the last two games after going 9 for 9 over the first four. The 42-year-old leg tends to be a bit shakier in outdoor games, and he's got another coming up with a visit to the Jets next weekend.
10/23/2017 Stephen Gostkowski, NE, K
Stephen Gostkowski converted three of three field-goal attempts Sunday as the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons 23-7. He made kicks of 29, 21 and 38 yards. Gostkowski tacked on two PATs.

Analysis: Gostkowski booted through at least three field goals for the fourth time in seven games this season and is now 16 for 17 on 3-point tries for the year. Fantasy owners should keep rolling with a kicker who's annually among the scoring leaders in all formats.
