Patriots WR DeVante Parker (concussion) will not travel with the team to Germany and is out for Sunday morning's game vs. the Colts. That again leaves WR Demario Douglas as the favorite to lead New England in targets this weekend. Jalen Reagor, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Tyquan Thornton will round out the WR corps.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he can get cleared for Sunday morning's game vs. the Colts. Parker isn't a fantasy option, but his return would mean a bit more target competition for WR Demario Douglas.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert is expected to have surgery on his fractured forearm on Monday and miss "about four weeks," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Eagles have a Week 10 bye, so it's possible that Goedert ends up missing only three games. If he ends up landing on IR, he'd be out four games. We'll see how Philly handles the situation. Goedert, who sits ninth among TEs in PPR points, is worth keeping stashed on fantasy benches in most cases.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert suffered a fracture in his right forearm in Sunday's win over the Cowboys, according to multiple reports. Goedert will have an MRI Monday morning to determine the severity of the damage and how long he'll be out. A Week 10 bye can only help, of course, but we'll be surprised if he doesn't land on IR for at least the minimum of four games. TE Jack Stoll gained the most playing time after Goedert left, with TE Grant Calcaterra out. TE Albert Okwuegbunam would also be in the replacement mix. That likely replacement committee will make it tough for any single player to emerge as fantasy relevant. We'll update as we hear more on Goedert's expected return timeline.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was already playing through a left-knee injury that has him in a brace. He took another shot to the knee in the first half of Sunday's win over the Cowboys that briefly hobbled the QB. But Hurts didn't miss any time. He was efficient on low passing volume, completing 17 of 23 passes (73.9%) for 207 yards (9.0 per attempt) and 2 TDs. Hurts found WRs A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith for scores. He also pushed in a score from 1-yard out amid 36 rushing yards on 10 carries. A Week 10 bye can only help Hurts gear up for a challenging final stretch of opponents.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert suffered an apparent right forearm injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys. He immediately headed back to the locker room with trainers. We'll update Goedert's status when we know more.

Update: Goedert is officially questionable to return.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Commanders. We’ll see if he can get cleared for Week 10. With WR Kendrick Bourne done for the season with his torn ACL, New England is down to WRs Demario Douglas, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Jalen Reagor, Tyquan Thornton, and Kayshon Boutte. Thornton (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 9. Douglas is the favorite for targets here and a viable WR4 or flex play in PPR leagues.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He's unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Commanders. With WR Kendrick Bourne out for the season with his torn ACL, rookie Demario Douglas is the best Week 9 fantasy bet in New England's WR corps.

Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (rib) is not listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He put in a full practice on Wednesday and is set to start Thursday night's game vs. the Titans. The rib issue still adds some risk to Pickett's fantasy profile -- and he wasn't a very attractive option to begin with

Steelers QB Kenny Pickett told reporters Tuesday that he's "playing for sure" Thursday night against the Titans. We had been expecting that Pickett would sit with the rib injury that knocked him out of the loss to the Jaguars. But you can now find Pickett in the Week 9 QB rankings. We don't see much difference between the QBs in terms of their impact on Steelers WR production against Tennessee.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Steelers are "keeping an open mind" about QB Kenny Pickett potentially rebounding from Sunday's rib injury to play Thursday night against the Titans. There's obviously nothing wrong with the team refusing to rule out its starting QB three days ahead of kickoff. We'd be surprised if Pickett is ready for the game, though. We're expecting Mitchell Trubisky to line up behind center against Tennessee. Of course, this situation doesn't matter a whole lot for fantasy purposes, because neither QB is very good.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport "didn't sense a lot of optimism" about Steelers QB Kenny Pickett's availability for Thursday night's game vs. the Titans. We're still waiting for details on the rib injury Pickett suffered in the Week 8 loss to the Jaguars, but he was always a long shot to be ready on the short turnaround. Look for QB Mitchell Trubisky to start vs. Tennessee. He's completed 63.7% of his passes at 6.6 yards per attempt with five TDs and seven INTs in nine appearances (five starts) for the Steelers since the start of 2022.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts delivered a huge fantasy line in Week 8 with 319 yards, 4 TDs, and 1 turnover. Hurts added just 6 rushing yards on 4 attempts – one of which included a fumble at the goal line. We also learned earlier in the day (per insider Jay Glazer) that Hurts has played through a left knee bruise. Perhaps that’ll keep the rush volume low in the short-term. But note that Hurts wasn’t even listed on Philly’s injury report. With a healthy group of pass-catchers, the 25-year-old will retain a top-3 ceiling next week vs. Dallas.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith broke out of a funk with 7 catches, 99 yards, and 1 score in Week 8. Smith got behind the Washington secondary for a 38-yard deep-ball score. Overall, he saw an 18.4% target share – just behind A.J. Brown’s tally (21%). While the Commanders supplied an ideal matchup, Sunday should serve as a reminder that Smith remains in the WR2/3 mix. He’ll face a stiffer test next week vs. Dallas.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown continued to roll in Sunday’s win over Washington, snagging all 8 targets for 130 yards and 2 scores. He’s now the first WR in league history to reach 125+ yards in six straight. Brown’s physical dominance really showed up, especially on a pair of end zone TDs. He’ll continue to rank as a top-three WR for Sunday’s showdown vs. Dallas.

RB Saquon Barkley essentially served as the Giants’ entire offense in Week 8 vs. the Jets, totaling 36 carries for 128 rushing yards with 3 catches. The team had to pivot early on after starting QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) and TE Darren Waller (hamstring) left in the second quarter due to injury and settled on pounding the rock all the way through OT. It’s difficult to draw any meaningful fantasy-based conclusions from this game due to the dire circumstances. Keep an eye on the practice reports this coming week to see who’ll be available to suit up vs. the Raiders in Week 9.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker has been ruled out of Week 8 with a head injury. The veteran posted 1 catch for 14 yards before departing.

Steelers QB Kenny Pickett suffered a rib injury in the first half of Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars and has been ruled out. He's been replaced by QB Mitchell Trubisky. We'll update Pickett's status when we know more.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is not listed on the Week 8 injury report. He appeared to be playing through a knee injury in last week’s win over Miami but will be out there for Sunday’s plus matchup vs. the Commanders.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (elbow) is not listed on the final Week 8 injury report. He hyperextended his elbow last week but returned to that game and will be ready for a full workload vs. the Jets on Sunday.
