Week 1 Essential NFL Practice News & Notes for Friday
Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 1. Dak Prescott will get the start and he’s a good-looking Sneaky Start/DFS play this week even though the Cowboys are expected to go run-heavy.
Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (not injury related, out) missed practice Friday and is out for Week 1. Ajayi is out after not even making the trip to Seattle. Arian Foster will be a workhorse in a very tough matchup against the Seahawks.
Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee, doubtful) took limited practice reps all week and is doubtful for Week 1. Andy Reid called it a “stretch” for Charles to play this week, so we’re currently expecting Spencer Ware to carry the load with Charcandrick West serving as the change-of-pace/passing down back. (We’re not too worried about the fact that West was listed ahead of Ware on a recent depth chart.) In two games against the Chargers last year, Ware averaged 7.62 YPC, racking up 148 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries.
