Giants hoping that RB Rashad Jennings will return in Week 9

NJ.com - [Full Article]

The Giants will try to get their running game back on track Sunday in Dallas without Rashad Jennings.

The Giants starting running back will miss his second consecutive game because of a sprained MCL in his left knee. He suffered the injury two weeks ago against the Atlanta Falcons.

The Giants have a bye week after the Cowboys game. The hope is that Jennings returns the following week when they face the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night.

"I hope so," coach Tom Coughlin said. "I can't tell you that for sure but we hope."

Fantasy Impact:

Andre Williams carried the ball 16 times in a blowout loss to the Eagles in Week 6, so we're expecting at least that many touches against the Cowboys this week. There has been no indication that Jennings' job is in danger -- Williams is probably the better runner, but he simply isn't the weapon in the passing game that Jennings is.

Cowboys RB Joseph Randle arrested

Star-Telegram - [Full Article]

Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle was arrested by Frisco police Monday night for shoplifting “a bottle of cologne and underwear” at a Dillards Department Store, according to a source.

Officer Chad Laprelle, a spokesman for the Frisco police department, confirmed that Randle was arrested on a Class B misdemeanor for a theft between $50-$500. Randle, 22, was caught stealing via video surveillance.

The Cowboys have not commented on the incident, nor has Randle or his agents.

The arrest came one day after Randle enjoyed a breakout game in the Cowboys’ 30-23 victory against the Seattle Seahawks. He rushed five times for 52 yards, including a 38-yard scamper in the first quarter to set the tone against Seattle’s top-ranked run defense. Randle also had a key tackle on special teams.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story points out, now the question is how this arrest will impact his status with the Cowboys. The team recently instituted a zero tolerance police regarding charges and arrests for crimes, including domestic violence. Randle is the first Cowboys player to be arrested this season.

Bernard Pierce is back healthy, but Justin Forsett remains the lead dog for the Baltimore Ravens.

There’s been chatter around Baltimore as to who the Ravens’ top running back is in their strong rushing game. On Sunday in Tampa Bay, Forsett took another step in proving he’s the guy.

Forsett and the now healthy Pierce split the carries – Forsett got 14 and Pierce had 15. But Forsett took his for 111 yards (7.9 yard average), and Pierce totaled 32 yards (2.1 average) and a touchdown on his attempts.

Forsett got his fourth straight start, and kick-started the Ravens offense with a 52-yard jaunt on their second play of the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Forsett, who still leads the NFL in average yards per carry (6.4), hadn’t logged a 100-yard game since 2009, his second year in the league when he was with the Seattle Seahawks. Forsett is fifth in the NFL with 408 rushing yards, trailing only Dallas' DeMarco Murray, Pittsburgh's Le'Veon Bell, Houston's Arian Foster and Philadelphia's LeSean McCoy. It didn't appear Forsett would step up to the lead role and keep it with the younger Pierce and rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro as part of the running attack. For now, Forsett is taking advantage of his opportunities despite splitting carries with Pierce.

Arians: Carson Palmer feels 'good' after Week 6

Monday, October 13, 2014, 4:34pm

Darren Urban on Twitter - [Full Article]

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said QB Carson Palmer felt good Monday.

Fantasy Impact:

Urban added that the worst seems to be behind Palmer, which is great news. He's worth grabbing if he ended up on your wire. At apparently less than 100 percent, Palmer threw for 250 yards and two TDs last week against the Redskins - one to Michael Floyd and the other to Larry Fitzgerald. It looks like pretty smooth sailing for the next four weeks with games against the Raiders, Eagles, Cowboys and Rams, who all rank 14th or lower in terms of giving up points to QBs.
