Rams head coach Jeff Fisher plans to continue to use a running back by committee this season.

Tre Mason carried the ball 18 times in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Seahawks, though Fisher asserted Zac Stacy could conceivably touch the ball 25 times in Week 8. The Rams seem poised to frustrate fantasy owners for the rest of the season. Tre Mason should be added in all leagues, but it is probably best to leave him on your bench this week.

The Seahawks will continue to go with Robert Turbin at fullback after he performed adequately in that new position last week.

The Seahawks are one of the few NFL teams to use traditional two-back sets, though that will probably change while Turbin fills in for the injured Derrick Coleman. Lynch struggled in Turbin's first game at fullback, carrying the ball 18 times for just 53 yards. Lynch has a great matchup with the Panthers Week 8, but beyond that his numbers may suffer a bit until Coleman returns.

Seahawks TE Rashaun Allen cleared waivers and became a free agent Wednesday.

Allen will be hoping that another team is in need of a tight end. He has no fantasy value whatsoever.

Junior Hemingway (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Hemingway has eight receptions for 89 yards on the season and shouldn't be a starter in any fantasy line up. His hamstring that he injured in week seven is still bothering him and is jeopardizing his week eight playing status.

Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

While his availability for week eight may be in question, his fantasy value remains extremely low. He has one reception all year which went for 42 yards in week five. Leave Goodwin on the waiver wire and off your fantasy team.

Giovani Bernard (ribs) was limited at practice Wednesday.

While he was limited in practice on Wednesday, there is no evidence that suggests he would be unable to play on Sunday against Baltimore. Bernard owners should check back closer to game time to be on the safe side.

Tom Brady (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday.

While he appeared on the practice report, there is little doubt that Brady would be unable to play this weekend. Brady will be starting under center for New England in week eight.

Kelechi Osemele (knee) practiced in full on Wednesday.

Osemele should be good to go on Sunday as he was able to log a full practice relatively early in the week. If something were to happen the next few days to Osemele, Gino Gradkowski would receive the start.

Josh McCown (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.

Even when McCown comes back to play for the Bucs, he most likely will be wearing a headset, and not a helmet. Mike Glennon has been somewhat efficient, and they are going to stick with him for the time being.

LaAdrian Waddle did not practice Wednesday due to a concussion.

Waddle will be unable to play this weekend unless he can pass all of the league mandated concussion tests. He should be viewed as inactive until he can pass the mandated protocol.
