Rumors

Fantasy Impact: One of the Jets' top WRs, Quincy Enunwa, is dealing with a potential multi-week injury, and they haven't had consistent production from the position this season. Matthews was fantasy relevant as recent as a season ago, though he would join a rather crowded group of receivers including Terrelle Pryor, Jermaine Kearse, and Robby Anderson.


Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict is not expected to be suspended for illegal hits made in Sunday’s loss to the Steelers. However, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport is reporting the league is reviewing several plays for a possible fine. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Burfict is no stranger to suspensions and fines for his on-field conduct but seems to be in the clear this time around. The plays in question include an elbow to the head of Steelers WR Antonio Brown, and two instances of leading with his helmet.


There's currently no sign of Le'Veon Bell at the Steelers' facility. There were reports that Bell would show up during the team's Week 7 bye. (Source: Aditi Kinkhabwala on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bell could still show up this week, but it's hard to tell what his future holds. He could be traded, he could rejoin the Steelers, or he could continue to hold out. A trade would seem to be the best bet for fantasy owners to find value from their likely first-round pick, as even if he returns to the Steelers it's not sure what role he'll fill given the success of the offense in general and James Conner specifically.
