Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday.

Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Martin’s injury could open the door for Charles Sims, who is a good bet to be active in Week 9. The Bucs may want to proceed with caution, but a Martin injury would press Sims into service sooner rather than later.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) did not practice Wednesday. It looks like Mathews will try to return in Week 11, after the team’s Week 10 bye.

Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm, questionable) did not practice Wednesday. Robinson will very likely miss Thursday’s game against the Panthers, so Mark Ingram will once again be an excellent play against a leaky Carolina rush defense.

Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) practiced fully Wednesday. Sproles is expected to return in Week 9 and is a so-so option coming off injury in a mediocre matchup against the Texans.

Wednesday, October 29, 2014, 6:48pm

Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder, out) did not practice Wednesday. Thomas is expected to miss at least another week, so Travaris Cadet is a viable RB2/flex play, especially in PPR formats.

Broncos RB Juwan Thompson (knee) practiced fully Wednesday. Thompson is a decent desperation play with Montee Ball out and six teams on bye. He’s a threat for another touchdown or two in the Broncos’ high-octane offense.

Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (thigh, out) was ruled out for Week 9.

Wednesday, October 29, 2014, 6:48pm

Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle, probable) practiced fully Wednesday. Williams is expected to start for the Panthers, per HC Ron Rivera. His return kills the value of Jonathan Stewart, though they are both decent flex/RB3-type starts during the Week 9 Byepocalypse in a nice matchup with the Saints.

Chiefs WR Donnie Avery (groin) was ruled out for Week 9.

Wednesday, October 29, 2014, 6:48pm

Rams WR Kenny Britt (hip) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Britt is expected to play against the 49ers. He’ll be the team’s WR1 going forward with Brian Quick out for the year.

Ravens WR Michael Campanaro (thigh) did not practice Wednesday.

Wednesday, October 29, 2014, 6:48pm

Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday. Decker should be good to go for a tough matchup against the Chiefs, who are #7 in WR aFPA.
