This is simply a depth move for the Packers and no fantasy value is being gained here for anybody on that roster.
Fantasy owners were likely hoping that Moncrief's return to practice would have been a contact practice but this update makes it less likely he suits up in Week 8 against the Chiefs. It is encouraging however that he is finally back at practice and a return could be coming soon.
If Moncrief practices on Wednesday that means there is an outside chance he will suit up in Week 8 against the Chiefs. Moncrief was a popular sleeper play heading into the season and had a solid Week 1 before injury has put him on the shelf since then. His return to the Colts lineup would be a welcomed sight as T.Y. Hilton has been the only productive receiver of the group this season.
In May 2015, Jones was originally signed by the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent following the conclusion of the 2015 NFL Draft. He did make the active roster late last season but never saw the field. He was released by the Jets just before the start of the 2016 season. He'll provide depth to their injury plagued line-backing core.
The Jets quarterback tore his right ACL in the Jets victory in Week 7 over the Ravens. We all know the story of Geno, so there's no need to repeat it but this is likely the end of his career in New York. The Jets have two other young quarterbacks behind him and the possibility of them drafting another one in 2017. The number 39 overall pick in the 2013 draft will likely find another home to maybe get one more shot to make something of his NFL career.
We heard Rex Ryan say just last week that there was no timetable for the return of Marcell Dareus but it looks like that has changed rather quickly. The former All-Pro has yet to see the field in 2016 after serving a four-game suspension to begin the year and then these hamstring issues. We've seen Corbin Bryant fill in at the nose tackle spot but the Bills would love to have him back against the Patriots in Week 8.
This comes as no surprise as McCoy probably should have sat in Week 7 against the Dolphins but he didn't and shockingly, he reinjured the hamstring. The Bills will take it as easy as possible with their star running back in hopes that he'll be able to give it a go in Week 8 against the Patriots in Buffalo. In their first match-up this season in Foxboro, McCoy had over 100 total yards and a touchdown in a victory.
Goodwin suffered the concussion in Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins when his head slammed on the turf after he went up high for a catch. If Goodwin can't go and it looks like Robert Woods won't be able to play again with his foot injury, the Bills are crazy thin at the position. Of all people, Justin Hunter was forced to play the most snaps against the Dolphins.
