Eagles hoping to keep Jake Elliott as kicker

Monday, November 20, 2017, 7:04pm

Philly.com - [Full Article]

The Eagles survived without a kicker throughout most of Sunday’s 37-9 win over the Dallas Cowboys, and they now begin a week when Jake Elliott’s health will be an ongoing question while he recovers from a concussion.

Elliott remains the team’s top option at kicker. They have a potential Plan B in former starter Caleb Sturgis, but they’re still maintaining hope that Elliott is healthy enough to play this Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Coach Doug Pederson didn’t answer whether there’s another option they’d consider.

Fantasy Impact:

Elliott is in the protocol so the team's hands are tied for now. Sturgis is eligible to be activated to the 53-man roster as one of the team's two designated to return provisions. Sturgis is getting himself back to where he was before his injury, according to the story. However, if the team activates Sturgis, they would need to burn an extra roster spot or move on from Elliott.

Bears Beat: Dontrelle Inman shines despite crisis at WR

Tuesday, November 14, 2017, 8:58am

ESPN - [Full Article]

It took Dontrelle Inman one game to establish that he is the best wide receiver on the Chicago Bears' roster.

In his Bears debut, Inman, who played 57 of 60 offensive snaps, had six catches for 88 yards on eight targets, good for the second-most single-game receiving yards by a Bears receiver this season.

Inman wasn’t perfect on Sunday. His drop on third down on the Bears’ final drive was a major gaffe that cannot be overlooked. Still, he showed enough to be taken seriously.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said the team is a mess at WR right now, and in the offseason they will likely have to draft one and perhaps overpay in free agency to add another because they can't count on Cameron Meredith or Kevin White and their injury history. For now, Inman could emerge as the team's top target giving him some fantasy value.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) won't return Week 10

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Green Bay Packers may have lost another key member of their offense to a significant injury.

Rookie running back Aaron Jones left Sunday's game against the Bears with a knee injury in the first half and was quickly ruled out for the rest of the game.

Related players: Ty Montgomery, Jamaal Williams

Fantasy Impact:

Jones was carted to the locker room and Rob Demovsky reports there is concern this could be a serious injury. NFL Red Zone reported Montgomery headed to the locker room early so we'll monitor his status as well. Williams could see a boost in fantasy value going forward when everything settles.
