Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadricep, questionable) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Week 7. Since the game is in London, Arizona plays in the early round of games on Sunday. If Ellington is out, Adrian Peterson and Kerwynn Williams may get his passing game work.

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quad) keeps trending in the wrong direction. After being limited in practice on Wednesday, he's missed the last two practices. It's looking doubtful he suits up this week.

Fantasy Impact:

Adrian Peterson should see the bulk of the work at RB for the Cards this week against the Rams. Our aFPA metric has the Rams ranked 32nd against RBs, meaning Peterson has the best matchup of the week of any back. We currently have him ranked as our No. 15 RB in standard leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington missed practice on Thursday. He was limited in yesterday's practice as well and is on his way to earning a questionable tag designation for the week. Ellington isn't startable in standard leagues, but we have him ranked as our No. 27 RB in PPR leagues, so if you're counting on him, you might need to make contingency plans.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston thinks shoulder injury is minor

USA Today - [Full Article]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston, who left Sunday’s game versus the Cardinals with a shoulder injury, says that his X-rays came back negative but he will have an MRI on Monday to determine the extend of the injury.

Winston was hurt attempting a throw during the second quarter of the game when Cardinals pass rusher Chandler Jones dropped the 23-year-old gunslinger to the ground while the Bucs were being shut out by Arizona. Shortly after, Ryan Fitzpatrick took over for Winston. Fortunately for Tampa Bay, Fitzpatrick carried the workload well, completing 22 of 32 passes for 290 yards, three touchdown passes and two interceptions.

Fantasy Impact:

Winston was seen on the sidelines throwing as if he was going to return to the field but never did. Following the game, Winston seemed optimistic and felt that the injury was minor, the story said. Winston told Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, that he was in pain but didn’t feel that it was anything serious at all. Rick Stroud's tweet within the story said Winston expects to play Week 7. Keep in mind it's hard to trust a player's stance on an injury so we'll monitor the situation this week.

ESPN - [Full Article]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has left the Bucs' game against the Arizona Cardinals with a shoulder injury.

His return is doubtful, according to team officials.

On third down of the opening possession of the game, Winston took a hit from Cardinals outside linebacker Chandler Jones and fell awkwardly onto his right shoulder.

Fantasy Impact:

After the offense left the field, Winston was seen tossing the ball on the sideline to try to loosen his arm up, and he briefly returned to action. Based on sideline shots, it seemed like Winston was upset he wasn't able to continue to play.

Mike Jurecki - [Full Article]

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said newly acquired RB Adrian Peterson won't play on third downs.

Fantasy Impact:

This is good news for Andre Ellington, who is used more in the passing game. This season, Ellington has caught 35+ yards in 4-of-5 games and has averaged 7.6 receptions and 70 yards receiving his last three games. In a somewhat difficult matchup versus the Bucs this week, we have Ellington ranked as our No. 21 PPR back. Feel confident starting him as your RB2/Flex option in PPR leagues.
