The Texans have released WR Demaryius Thomas. It was a no-brainer move with Thomas set to make $14 million in 2019. Now 31 and coming off a torn Achilles, DT isn't worth nearly that much coin. He'll probably need to prove he's recovered from that injury before landing a job elsewhere. Houston has a young, talented WR trio in place in DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Keke Coutee.

The Falcons have released K Matt Bryant. The 17-year veteran spent the past 10 seasons in Atlanta. His 86.2% career FG conversion rate ranks 8th among 31 active Ks with at least 50 attempts. Bryant reportedly wants to continue his career and should find a starting gig elsewhere.

Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) and TE Blake Jarwin (ankle) are active for tonight's game against the Rams. Both guys figure to be at far less than 100% after missing practice all week.

Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) missed practice all week and is listed as questionable for Saturday night's game against the Rams. If he suits up, he'll be at far less than 100%. If not, Dallas will be down to WRs Tavon Austin and Noah Brown behind Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup.

Texans WR Demaryius Thomas will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured left Achilles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a devastating injury for the 31-year-old and makes him questionable for the start of the 2019 campaign. It's also a big loss for a Texans team thin at WR. We'll see if they get rookie Keke Coutee (hamstring) back for Week 17. DeAndre Carter and Vyncint Smith are Houston's other WRs.

Texans WR Demaryius Thomas was carted to the locker room after suffering what appeared to be a right knee injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Eagles. This has the look of a serious injury. We'll update Thomas' status when we learn more.

Update: The team announced Thomas with an Achilles injury. If it's torn, he'll be done for the season.

Raiders WR Martavis Bryant has been suspended indefinitely for another violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. He was banned for a year last time and figures to draw at least that long of a suspension this time around. Bryant is still just 26, but his NFL career is likely over.

Redskins QB Josh Johnson will start next weekend's game against the Jaguars, HC Jay Gruden announced shortly after the loss to the Giants. Johnson's mobility gave Washington's offense a semblance of a spark vs. the G-Men. He finished 11-of-16 passing for 195 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT while adding 45 yards and a score on the ground. That rushing ability adds intrigue to Johnson's fantasy stock -- but he'll only be a DFS consideration for Week 15.

Falcons K Matt Bryant (back) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice, so he comes with elevated risk in fantasy lineups.

Falcons K Matt Bryant (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Packers. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. We’ll see if Atlanta adds another K, but we’d go with a healthier option in Week 14 fantasy lineups.

Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (knee) has been placed on IR. There's no reason to push him back with that PCL injury in a lost season. Bryant is set to hit free agency this offseason. Jordy Nelson, Marcell Ateman and Seth Roberts will continue to serve as Oakland's top 3 WRs.

Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. Jordy Nelson, Marcell Ateman and Seth Roberts will again serve as Oakland's top 3 WRs.

Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He didn't practice all week, though, so we'd be surprised if he played. Look for Jordy Nelson, Marcell Ateman and Seth Roberts to again serve as Oakland's top 3 WRs.

Cowboys WR Cole Beasley sprained his right foot late in Thursday night's win over the Saints, according to insider David Moore. Beasley is considered week-to-week. He's averaged 4.4 targets per game since WR Amari Cooper arrived, so there's not a huge fantasy impact here.

Falcons K Matt Bryant (hamstring) will return for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. He’s a fine fantasy play kicking for a strong offense in a dome.

Falcons K Matt Bryant (hamstring) was a full-go in Thursday's practice. That presumably means he'll return for this weekend's game against the Cowboys, sending K Giorgio Tavecchio back to the streets. Bryant is a fine fantasy option the rest of the way kicking for Atlanta's 8th-ranked scoring offense.

The Saints have signed WR Brandon Marshall. It's Plan B after they lost WR Dez Bryant to a torn Achilles. Marshall is 34 now and has looked out of gas for the past couple of seasons. We'll see if he can make an impact in New Orleans, but we wouldn't bother adding him to fantasy rosters right now.

The Raiders believe WR Martavis Bryant tore his PCL in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He'll undergo an MRI to get a better idea of the damage. We should learn more over the next couple of days, but Bryant seems safe to drop from fantasy rosters. He hasn't reached 30 receiving yards since Week 5.

Raiders WR Martavis Bryant injured his knee in the 3rd quarter and was quickly ruled out of Sunday's game against the Chargers. That usually means it's a serious injury. We'll pass along an update on Bryant when we get one.

Falcons K Matt Bryant (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. K Giorgio Tavecchio gets another start and is a fine fantasy option.
