Saints Beat: Mark Ingram fumbles could open door for Alvin Kamara

Monday, October 30, 2017, 8:32am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Sean Payton loves and trusts Mark Ingram, as evidenced by the Saints’ decision to ship Adrian Peterson out of town earlier this month.

However, there is one thing that could block Ingram’s path to redemption. Or, rather, one rookie running back Payton also has developed a love and trust in: Alvin Kamara.

Fantasy Impact:

Kamara finished out the game after Ingram fumbled twice in the fourth quarter. But the story said Payton knows he's going to need Ingram if the Saints are going to make a playoff run. However, one more thing the story pointed out was how Ingram's two fumbles in last year's loss to Kansas City opened the door for more work for Tim Hightower over the next few weeks before Ingram eventually re-established himself as the lead man.

Report: Colts QB Andrew Luck to visit shoulder specialist

Sunday, October 29, 2017, 5:31pm

USA Today - [Full Article]

The Indianapolis Colts shut down quarterback Andrew Luck two weeks ago after he suffered a setback in his throwing shoulder due to soreness. They will reportedly have their star quarterback see a specialist.

Jay Glazer reported that Luck will see a specialist on his surgically repaired right shoulder and that if they don’t find answers, they could shut him down for the rest of the season, per WTHR’s Bob Kravitz.

Related players: Jacoby Brissett

Fantasy Impact:

It's certainly not looking good for a Luck return this year. Reports say the Colts would play Luck if he does return this season no matter what their record is, but right now it seems they don't have answers to Luck's shoulder pain.

Eric Branch on Twitter - [Full Article]

Pierre Garcon (neck) indicated he would play next week vs. Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact:

Seems like Garcon is OK, but as we've said many times we can't trust what a player says about his status when it comes to an injury. Continue to monitor this week.

Browns RB Duke Johnson clears concussion protocol

Sunday, October 29, 2017, 2:59pm

Cleveland Browns on Twitter - [Full Article]

Injury Update: Duke Johnson has cleared the concussion protocol.

Related players: Isaiah Crowell

Fantasy Impact:

Johnson left the London game this morning leaving Crowell to put up pretty nice fantasy numbers, especially in the passing game. The Browns have a bye in Week 9 but Johnson should be good to go for Week 10.

Michael Silver on Twitter - [Full Article]

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, to me just now: 'We are NOT trading Jimmy Graham. That's total bulls---'

Fantasy Impact:

There was a report out that Graham was mentioned in trade talks, specifically to the Texans. But it seems like the team is denying it. Graham will be a free agent at the end of this season.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders questionable, no practice all week

Saturday, October 28, 2017, 7:42pm

Chiefs official site - [Full Article]

Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders did not practice again Saturday, meaning he did not practice all week with his ankle injury; however, he is listed as questionable for Monday night against the Chiefs.

The questionable tag, by definition, is supposed to mean the player has a 50-50 chance to play. Generally, players who do not practice all week do not play, but it is not unprecedented for a player to still play after not practicing at all. T.Y. Hilton, for example, did it for the Colts in recent years.

Related Players: Demaryius Thomas, Bennie Fowler

Fantasy Impact:

Sanders owners, if they do not have a better Sunday back-up option, should handcuff him with teammate Bennie Fowler for Monday night. Hopefully, there is more clarity on this before Sunday kickoffs; however, prepare accordingly. Also, move Sanders into your FLEX as well, if at all possible, to give you more options for Monday night than just another receiver.
