Strong has been out a month with a sprained ankle. The timetable was for him to return around Week 14 but he isn't quite ready. Strong is the 4th receiver on the depth chart for the Texans so his fantasy impact is minor even when on the field.

Browns rookie WR Jordan Payton suspended for four games.

The suspension will end Payton's rookie season. He was a fifth-round pick out of UCLA who only played 30 snaps for the Browns and is listed as the 7th receiver on the depth chart. With this news, it would be hard to imagine him making the Browns roster in 2017.

Raiders OLB Aldon Smith met with NFL officials Friday regarding reinstatement.

Smith has yet to learn his status regarding his punishment. Smith would be returning from an indefinite ban for multiple violations/arrests of the NFL's substance abuse policy. He is a great athlete and would help the Raiders down the stretch of the season and in the playoffs but he needs to get his life under control before he should be able to play in the NFL.
