Bills MLB Tremaine Edmunds (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Jets, as expected. He’s a strong starting option for IDP lineups.

Bills MLB Tremaine Edmunds cleared the concussion protocol Saturday and is expected to play today against the Jets. Barring some change, he should be in IDP lineups for Week 10

Bills QB Josh Allen has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Jets. The team announced that Matt Barkley will start in his place. Barkley gets the nod over Nate Peterman, who’s tossed 7 picks — vs. 1 TD — on just 49 attempts. Barkley was signed on October 31st and doesn’t project as much of an upgrade. The Jets D/ST remains an elite option.

Bills MLB Tremaine Edmunds has yet to clear the concussion protocol and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He put in limited practices Thursday and Friday. We'll see if he can gain clearance in time to play. If he doesn't, Julian Stanford showed last week that he's a viable fill-in with 8 tackles (7 solo), a sack and a forced fumble against the Bears.

Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Jets after a limited week of practice. QB Derek Anderson has been ruled out with his concussion. HC Sean McDermott wouldn’t say on Friday whether Nathan Peterman or Matt Barkley will start this weekend if Allen can’t. Regardless, avoid the Bills passing game in fantasy lineups and start the Jets defense.

The Bills have said MLB Tremaine Edmunds will return as a limited practice participant Wednesday. That indicates he has yet to gain full clearance from the concussion that cost him Week 9, but it also suggests Edmunds should be on track to return for Sunday's game against the Jets. We'll keep an eye out for that final clearance. An active Edmunds will belong in IDP lineups.

The Bills have downgraded MLB Tremaine Edmunds to out for Sunday's game against the Bears. Edmunds missed practice all week after suffering a concussion Monday night against the Patriots. We'll see if he can get cleared before a Week 10 visit to the Jets.

Bills MLB Tremaine Edmunds is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears with the concussion he suffered in Monday night's loss to the Patriots. That seems optimistic from the team, though. Edmunds missed the entire week of practice. We'll watch him through the weekend, but make sure you have another plan for your IDP lineup.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (foot, ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's on track to play against the Texans this weekend.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle, foot) did not practice on Wednesday. This is the 4th straight Wednesday he's been limited or held out, and he's yet to miss a game. Yeldon should be available for this weekend's tilt with the Texans, but we'll continue to keep an eye on him.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Bills QB Josh Allen is expected to miss "at least 2 or 3 games" with the sprained UCL in his throwing elbow. Allen is dealing with a partial tear in the ligament and doesn't need surgery. This doesn't sound like a long-term concern, but the Bills figure to play it safe with their 1st-round rookie. We'll see whether they turn to Nathan Peterman or Derek Anderson against the Colts this weekend.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Bills QB Josh Allen has been diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right (throwing) elbow. The team is sending MRI results to Dr. James Andrews for a 2nd opinion. We don't have an official timeline for Allen's return, but former NFL head team Dr. David Chao considers the rookie "week-to-week" and believes "a good outcome for the Bills would be a return by Allen some time in November." Buffalo recently signed veteran QB Derek Anderson. We'll see if they roll with him or QB Nathan Peterman, but neither guy is a fantasy option.

Bills QB Josh Allen injured his right elbow or forearm in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Houston. We'll look for an update on his status. Nathan Peterman is in the game for Buffalo.

UPDATE: Allen is officially questionable to return with an elbow injury.

Bengals TE Tyler Kroft (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That strengthens the case for TE C.J. Uzomah as a Week 6 spot starter. He played 92% of the offensive snaps last week and ran a route on 28 of QB Andy Dalton’s 32 dropbacks. Pittsburgh has allowed the most receptions, 2nd most yards and 3rd most TDs to TEs.

Bengals TE Tyler Kroft missed Wednesday's practice with the foot injury he suffered last weekend. His absence this Sunday would make TE C.J. Uzomah a safer spot-start play against the Steelers' 31st-ranked TE defense.

Bengals TE Tyler Kroft injured his right foot in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Dolphins and is officially questionable to return. Cincinnati, of course, is already without TE Tyler Eifert. It leaves TE C.J. Uzomah as the clear lead dog.

Bills S Micah Hyde is out for today's game against the Titans with a groin injury. He has endured a slow statistical start anyway and would only have been a low-level IDP option.

Bills S Micah Hyde is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans with a groin injury. He missed practice all week, though, and looks risky for the game. Keep him out of IDP lineups, especially after a slow statistical start to the season.

Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Seahawks. He’s just a desperation play in PPR leagues.

Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Seahawks. He popped up on Thursday’s injury report but got in a limited practice on Friday. It seems like Beasley will play on Sunday, but you should continue to avoid Cowboys WRs in fantasy lineups.
