Fantasy Impact: Can we say “running back by committee?” Ty Johnson should be the first priority for all waiver claims and situation-dependent, owners should use 50%+ of their FAAB. J.D. McKissic would warrant 10-20% of FAAB. Please note, this news makes a trade or bringing back C.J. Anderson more of a reality for the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: After Mohamed Sanu was dealt to the Patriots this morning, Sanders was one of the few established wideouts on the market. His role is unclear at the moment, but he should immediately start and carve out a prominent role in the 49ers offense. Sanders snagged 30 of 44 targets for 367 yards and two touchdowns in seven games for the Broncos this season.

Fantasy Impact: Sanu , who caught 33 passes for 313 yards and a TD in seven games with Atlanta prior to the deal, gives the Patriots some valuable depth at wideout, with Josh Gordon (knee/ankle) banged up and both Julian Edelman (chest) Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) having been on the team's injury report of late. Since it's unclear how much the Patriots will use him in the offense, he is a borderline WR3/4 in fantasy.

Fantasy Impact: Mosley has missed New York's last four games with a groin injury but was able to practice this week and is active for the divisional tilt against the Patriots and should be an added boost to a defense that has already been playing well in recent weeks.

Adam Thielen’s MRI revealed no major damage to his right hamstring, but he is unlikely to play in Thursday’s Week 8 matchup against the Redskins. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thielen suffered the injury in a 25-yard touchdown reception, his only catch of the day. The MRI results show that Thielen avoided a major injury, it will be a tough to gain medical clearance before Thursday’s game. Stefon Diggs would serve as the Vikings top target with Thielen sidelined.

Fantasy Impact: Fuller who suffered a “rather significant” hamstring pull in Sunday’s 30-23 loss and is expected to miss several weeks as a result of this injury. The Texans should provide an update in the next few days. He will most likely miss Sunday’s Week 8 matchup against the Raiders and additional contests. Keke Coutee and Kenny Stills will fill in as the Texans deep ball threat.
