Rob Kelley, RB WAS

5 hours ago

Kelley could start Week 8

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Wednesday that RB Robert Kelley would be in the "lead role" against the Bengals on Sunday if RB Matt Jones' knee issue keeps him out. “Chris [Thompson] has such an important role as far as third downs and his specialty role that we need him in that role, and he’s not a very big guy," Gruden said. "We don’t want to give him the ball 35 times between the tackles, you know? We’d like to have a more physical guy do that.” The lead role has netted Jones 14.1 carries per game this season. That'd be a fair Week 8 projection for Kelley if Jones sits. Thompson would figure to remain in the 6-10 carry range with the majority of the pass-catching work.

Packers RB Don Jackson (hand) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to play against the Falcons this weekend after exiting last Thursday night's game. It's unclear how the backfield work will be divvied between Jackson, Knile Davis and Ty Montgomery. Jackson and Davis can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. We guess the fact that he was out there at all in encouraging. But after carrying just once and playing 2 snaps last week, Charles needs to earn his way back into fantasy lineups.

Lions RB Dwayne Washington (ankle) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He appears set to return for this weekend's game against the Texans after missing the previous 3. But with RB Theo Riddick also expected back and RB Zach Zenner showing well over the past couple of weeks, Washington's role is uncertain. He's a fine stash but can't be trusted in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

The Seahawks have released RB C.J. Spiller. He was a healthy scratch last week with RB C.J. Prosise healthy again. Spiller hauled in 5 balls for 43 yards and a score in his 2 games with Seattle. His days as a fantasy asset are long gone.

Chargers TE Hunter Henry (concussion) was on the practice field Wednesday. He's evidently already made good progress in the league's protocol and has a chance to be fully cleared in time for this weekend's game against the Broncos. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall was held out of Wednesday's practice with what HC Todd Bowles labeled a sore foot. Bowles added that Marshall has been dealing with the issue for "a couple of weeks." He should be available for Sunday's game against the Browns, but we'll keep an eye on him over the next few days.

Jets HC Todd Bowles revealed that RB Bilal Powell is dealing with turf toe. It's unclear exactly when the injury occurred, but Powell didn't practice on Wednesday and is certainly in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Browns. Turf toe recently cost Raiders RB Latavius Murray 2 games. Powell's absence would lock in Matt Forte for a big workload in a plus matchup.

Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is expected to miss "at least a few weeks" with bone bruise in his knee, according to insider Mike Garafolo. Anderson is getting a 2nd opinion today to determine the exact extent of the damage. We should get a more concrete timetable for his return later this week, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that "being out for the season is also possible." RB Devontae Booker will take over as Denver's lead (feature?) back for as long as Anderson is out. The rookie has been impressive this year, averaging 4.8 yards per carry and 7.7 yards per catch. RB Kapri Bibbs moves up to the #2 spot on the depth chart with Anderson out.

Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) returned to practice on Wednesday, giving him a shot to play against the Texans this weekend. Riddick should return to the same role that netted him 10 carries and 6.4 targets per game before his injury. He'll be a nice RB2 play in PPR leagues.
