Price keeps rising for Ravens QB Jackson

The Baltimore Ravens did not get a contract extension done with star quarterback LAMAR JACKSON before the start of the season, and it looks like it could cost them by theMore end of the year. Jackson had another signature performance that will keep him in the early conversation for MVP in what is a now a contract year. Jackson accounted for 5 touchdowns and rushed for over 100 yards for the second straight week in Baltimore’s win on Sunday against the New England Patriots. Less

Chargers QB Herbert starts but struggles

Will he start? Will he be limited? Will he be effective? These are the types of questions that JUSTIN HERBERT’s fantasy owners asked throughout the week leading up to Sunday’s gameMore against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Herbert did start and he played despite fractured rib cartilage that he suffered on a hit in the September 15th game at Kansas City. Herbert passed for just under 300 yards and a touchdown but also turned the ball over twice. Of note, the start was Herbert's 35th consecutive regular season start. Less

UPDATE: Josh Jacobs will play

UPDATE: Pregame exercises went fine for Raiders RB JOSH JACOBS (illness), and he will suit up today. PREVIOUS POST: Las Vegas RB Josh Jacobs did not travel with his teammates yesterday,More so it looked like he was going to miss today's game at the Titans with the illness that kept him from practicing Thursday and Friday. But it turns out he made the trip to Nashville after all, flying separately from the rest of the team, and will try to play assuming he feels OK in warmups. We don't have tons of running back depth on our teams, so if he's active for the Raiders he'll probably be active for us too. Less

Herbert very much in question for Bolts

Much doubt and intrigue surrounding Chargers QB JUSTIN HERBERT today, as he is not yet recovered from the rib injury he suffered on Thursday night in Week 2. Herbert is reportedlyMore pushing to play through his discomfort, and may receive a pregame injection to assist him in doing so. But reports say the team has tried to encourage him to take a longer view and sit out what should be a winnable-no-matter-what game vs. Jacksonville (we might be pushing for the same thing, given that Herbert's own career as a starter began when a pregame injection administered to Tyrod Taylor went horribly awry). If Herbert winds up playing it'll be hard to sit him down, but be sure to have an alternative lined up just in case. Less

Several Bucs to play, Julio less certain

Tampa Bay is woefully thin on offense this week, with WR CHRIS GODWIN out again with the hamstring injury he picked up in Week 1, and fellow WR MIKE EVANS servingMore a one-game suspension for his involvement in a fight in Week 2. But things could have been worse. All three of RB LEONARD FOURNETTE (hamstring), WR RUSSELL GAGE (hamstring) and WR BRESHAD PERRIMAN (knee) are expected to play despite their questionable designations for the late afternoon game vs. Green Bay. Less certain is WR JULIO JONES (knee), whose status will be determined during warmups. Less

Saints QB Winston, RB Kamara remain limited in practice

New Orleans Saints quarterback JAMEIS WINSON (back/ankle) and running back ALVIN KAMARA (rib) both remained limited in Thursday’s practice session. Kamara did not practice on Thursday or Friday last week beforeMore being inactive for Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay, so the fact that he is at least practicing appears encouraging.
