The Eagles have Bennie Logan listed as week to week with a strained groin. He suffered the injury in a Week 6 loss to the Redskins. He was inactive for Week 7 in an Eagles win over the Vikings. Philadelphia could really use him for their run defense as they face the Dallas Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott on Sunday night in Week 8. Beau Allen would see the snaps in Logan's absence.
Originally selected by the Patriots at number 208 in the 2016 NFL draft and signed to a contract but was let go at last cuts. The Eagles signed him and brought him in as a special teamer and a hybrid linebacker/safety prospect with great speed. He has amassed just three solo tackled this season. We will have to keep our eye on the practice reports for his status for Sunday.
No one in the media really knows what's going on personally with Montrezl Harrell but he was not at Monday's practice and is officially questionable for Wednesday night's game. The idea this season was for him to split minutes with Nene as the back up for Clint Capela. Harrell should not be owned in any standard leagues.
Daniels should suit up for the opener after missing suffering the knee sprain during the preseason. However, the shooting guard is down on the depth chart and has no fantasy relevance at this point.
Jackson was hoping to play well enough in Week 7 to earn more playing time, but suffered the hand injury after receiving only two carries. At this point, due to Ty Montgomery carving out a nice role in the Packers offense and Knile Davis becoming more acclimated with the playbook, Jackson does not carry any fantasy value.
The Cowboys are continuing to be cautious with their veteran quarterback and it helps that Dak Prescott is playing well. The Cowboys are trying to delay the inevitable for as long as possible, but once Romo is officially cleared to practice, the dilemma of choosing between the veteran and the rookie will finally come to a head. For now, fantasy owners can continue to use Prescott in two quarterback leagues or as a bye week replacement if needed.
Kaminsky suffered a foot sprain towards the end of the preseason schedule and just lost the walking boot that he was in after the injury. The Hornets are encouraged by the progress of their big man so it shouldn’t be long before Kaminsky is back in game action. Marvin Williams should see more minutes and there is a chance Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will play some minutes at power forward as well.
It may take a month before Rose officially feels comfortable, but the point guard started off strong in his first game with the Knicks as he scored 17 points with three rebounds, one assist and one block in 30 minutes. Fantasy owners would love to see more assists and that should come as Rose gets more comfortable, but having the point guard play 30 minutes is most important. As long as Rose remains healthy which is always a huge question, the point guard will fill up the stat sheet this season and help fantasy owners throughout the year.
