Bears OLB Khalil Mack (ankle) and S Eddie Jackson (knee) are active for today's game against the Saints. Each arrived questionable but is available if you were waiting on him for your IDP lineup.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (concussion) is active for today’s game against Saints. He remains a volume-based WR1. WR/RB Cordarrelle Patterson (quad) is also active but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) has been downgraded to out for Sunday night's game against the Eagles. 7th-round rookie QB Ben DiNucci out of James Madison will draw the start. He has a strong group of pass-catchers and might bring sneaky rushing upside -- but he's really only in play in 1-game DFS contests.

Bears WR Allen Robinson has cleared the concussion protocol and is now expected to play Sunday against the Saints, according to multiple reports. That comes as a big surprise after the Bears listed him as doubtful Friday. Robinson obviously belongs in fantasy lineups in nearly all cases. His return knocks Chicago WRs Anthony Miller and Darnell Mooney back down the rankings, though it's still a decent spot for Mooney if you're looking for an option in low WR4 range.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (ankle) and S Eddie Jackson (knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. Mack returned to a limited Friday workout after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. You can probably find a better option than Mack in an already tough sack matchup for most IDP lineups. Jackson put in a full Friday practice and seems like a good bet to play. We'll check the status of both on Sunday afternoon.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (concussion) has been downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints. He's not going to play after sustaining a concussion on Monday night.

Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night's game against the Eagles. Look for 7th-round rookie QB Ben DiNucci to get the start in that one. He projects as a significant downgrade for Dallas' offense, although it's not like Dalton played well the past 2 weeks.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints. He didn’t practice all week, though, so Robinson looks like a long shot to get cleared for this one. He should be on fantasy benches right now. Look for Darnell Mooney and Anthony Miller to serve as Chicago’s top 2 WRs this weekend. WR/RB Cordarrelle Patterson (quad) is also questionable for this one.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Saints this weekend. That'd leave Darnell Mooney and Anthony Miller as Chicago's top 2 WRs. We've removed Robinson from the Week 8 WR Rankings and bumped up Mooney and Miller

Bears OLB Khalil Mack missed practice Wednesday with a new injury. It's an ankle this time, which is news after Mack saw his usual playing time in Monday's loss to the Rams. He saw a knee issue limit his practice time and render him questionable for several weeks earlier this season and then entered Monday night questionable with a back issue. Mack played through both ailments and has delivered 4 sacks over his past 3 games. We'll see how this week progresses.

Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday. He seems unlikely to get cleared for Sunday night's game vs. the Eagles after taking a vicious head shot last weekend. Dalton's absence would leave Dallas with QB Ben DiNucci and make all the Cowboys' pass-catchers tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

Bears WR Allen Robinson has entered the league concussion protocol. There was no report of a concussion coming out of Monday night's game, so symptoms must have arisen since then. That doesn't bode well for his chances of making it back in time to face the Saints this Sunday. If Robinson's out, we'd likely see target boosts for WRs Darnell Mooney and Anthony Miller. It's tough to get excited about anyone in that offense as a fantasy option right now, though.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (back) is active for tonight's game against the Rams. He's ready for use if you planned to play him in IDP lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Cowboys QB Andy Dalton is in the concussion protocol. We'll see if he can get cleared ahead of Sunday night's game vs. the Eagles. If not, Dallas will be down to 7th-round rookie QB Ben DiNucci, who completed 2 of 3 passes for 39 yards in relief of Dalton yesterday.

Cowboys QB Andy Dalton exited Sunday's game in Washington in the 3rd quarter after taking a hit to the head from LB Jon Bostic. Dalton will be tested for a concussion and seems unlikely to return today. QB Ben DiNucci is in for Dallas.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Monday night's game against the Rams. He wasn't on the injury report to open the week but then missed Friday's workout with a back issue. Mack returned for limited participation Saturday. We'll update his status Monday, but most IDP owners will probably be better off leaning toward a safer option. Mack played through questionable tags the first 4 weeks, but that was for a knee issue.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (shoulder) is active for tonight's game against the Bucs. He's run more routes and out-targeted WR Anthony Miller over the past 3 weeks. Still, Mooney is really only in play for DFS showdown contests.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (shoulder) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Buccaneers. It's an odd designation, because the Bears listed him as a full practice participant each day this week. We'll assume Mooney will play but will confirm his status when the inactives come out Thursday evening.

Bears HC Matt Nagy announced Monday that RB Tarik Cohen has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the 2020 season. He ran 54 pass routes and garnered 9 targets through 3 games. Most of that work now figures to go to RB David Montgomery.

Bears HC Matt Nagy on Monday delivered the announcement we all expected. QB Nick Foles will start Sunday's game against the Colts. Foles, of course, came on and engineered a comeback win at Atlanta after the Bears yanked Mitchell Trubisky. Foles completed 16 of 29 passes for 188 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT. That's not a stellar outing against a bad Falcons defense, but Foles should offer a bit more stability than Trubisky. He falls short of Trubisky, however, in fantasy upside without the rushing threat. Foles is only a waiver option for 2-QB and superflex fantasy football leagues, especially against an Indy defense that ranks among the league's best pass rushes. Nagy added that it's Foles' job going forward, rather than a week-to-week evaluation. We'll see what happens if/when Foles falters.
