Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Uzomah is a good streaming option for Week 7 and Week 8 (versus Tampa, last in the league in TE aFPA), and is a cheap way to get a piece of the Cincinnati passing attack in a great matchup against the Chiefs. Last week, against the Steelers, he posted 6-54 on seven targets.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, LeVeon Bell does not plan to report this week to the Steelers, despite what he previously said.

Related players: James Conner

Fantasy Impact:

The next target date for Bell could be Monday, Oct. 22, when the work week rolls over and the Steelers begin preparations for their Week 8 divisional matchup against the Browns. The story added there is some belief he may wait until after the trade deadline on Tuesday, Oct. 30 to report. Doing so would shut down any opportunity the Steelers have of trading him -- they cannot do so until he signs his franchise tender.

This just in from Steelers source : The Steelers are not expecting Le’Veon Bell to show up this week despite previous reports.

Related players: James Conner

Fantasy Impact:

And here we go again. The timing to show up this week made a lot of sense with the team's bye week, giving Bell extra time to get up to speed - if he even remained with the team. But for now, Bell remains out. It's possible he still actually shows up this week.

Le'Veon Bell Watch: no sign of Steeler RB Monday

Steelers starting to get into HQ this morning after yesterday’s big win. One player just messaged me: No sign of RB LeVeon Bell.

Related players: James Conner

Fantasy Impact:

This could likely be the first of many updates this week. Steeler players meet today, Kinkhabwala went on to say, practice Tuesday and Wednesday and are then off until next Monday. There is not a lot of clarity to this situation, and the Steelers are predicted to continue to use Conner even if Bell returns. It could be a long couple weeks for both Conner and Bell owners until there are more answers.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) took limited practice reps all week. Sanu should be fine to face the Bucs. Tampa slot corner M.J. Stewart has yielded a hefty 2.38 fantasy points (PPR) per target this season and he’ll be on Sanu for most of Sunday’s game in Atlanta. Sanu is quietly turning into a fantasy starter with three straight usable lines: 4-36-1 (7) against the Saints, 6-111 (9) against the Bengals and 4-73-1 (7) last week against the Steelers.
