NFL Recent Player News
|10/23/2017||Malcom Brown, NE, DT|
|Brown exited Sunday's game against Atlanta in the third quarter with an ankle injury.
Analysis: No word on the severity, though that's par for the course with the Patriots. Brown isn't a real difference maker on a statistical level but is a key starter and run-stopper on the interior of New England's defensive line.
|10/23/2017||Matt Bryant, Atl, K|
|Matt Bryant missed both of his field-goal attempts, a 37- and 36-yarder, in the Atlanta Falcons' 23-7 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. Bryant tacked on one PAT.
Analysis: Bryant has now missed three of four field goal attempts over the last two games after going 9 for 9 over the first four. The 42-year-old leg tends to be a bit shakier in outdoor games, and he's got another coming up with a visit to the Jets next weekend.
|10/23/2017||Stephen Gostkowski, NE, K|
|Stephen Gostkowski converted three of three field-goal attempts Sunday as the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons 23-7. He made kicks of 29, 21 and 38 yards. Gostkowski tacked on two PATs.
Analysis: Gostkowski booted through at least three field goals for the fourth time in seven games this season and is now 16 for 17 on 3-point tries for the year. Fantasy owners should keep rolling with a kicker who's annually among the scoring leaders in all formats.
|10/22/2017||Chris Moore, Bal, WR|
|Moore had two receptions for 36 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 24-16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He added one rush for -5 .
Analysis: Moore could have some value in deeper leagues with Mike Wallace injured.
|10/22/2017||Justin Tucker, Bal, K|
|Justin Tucker converted three of three field-goal attempts Sunday as the Baltimore Ravens lost to the Minnesota Vikings 24-16.
Analysis: He made kicks of 48, 57 and 47 yards.

|10/22/2017||Kai Forbath, Min, K|
|Kai Forbath converted six of six field-goal attempts Sunday as the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Baltimore Ravens 24-16.
Analysis: Forbath made kicks of 52, 51, 43, 43, 34 and 32 yards to back another suffocating effort from the defense for the Vikings (5-2).
|10/22/2017||Reuben Foster, SF, LB|
|Foster sustained a rib injury in the third quarter Sunday against the Cowboys.
Analysis: Foster returned to action for the first time since sustaining an ankle injury in Week 1 against Carolina and started.
|10/22/2017||Jay Cutler, Mia, QB|
|Cutler left Sunday's game against the Jets due to cracked ribs, according to multiple reports.
Analysis: Cutler, who tossed two touchdown passes in the first half, was hit hard by Jets linebacker Jordan Jenkins and left the game in the third quarter clutching his chest. NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport tweeted that Cutler is feared to have cracked ribs and that he will likely miss Thursday's game against Baltimore pending test results. Matt Moore replaced Cutler and led the Dolphins to a 31-28 comeback win.
|10/22/2017||DeShone Kizer, Cle, QB|
|Kizer has been benched again after throwing interceptions on consecutive passes.
Analysis: Kizer was picked off late in the first half and on Cleveland's first possession of the third quarter - both picks by Titans safety Kevin Byard. He obviously isn't a fantasy option right now.
|10/22/2017||Malik Hooker, Ind, S|
|The Indianapolis Colts have lost safety Malik Hooker, their first-round draft pick, late in the first half with what appears to be an injured right knee.
Analysis: Hooker was injured on a 50-yard pass play from Blake Bortles to Allen Hurns - yet another tough moment in a rugged first half in which the Colts trailed Jacksonville 17-0. There was no immediate update on the injury.
|10/22/2017||Andre Ellington, Ari, RB|
|Ellington is inactive for the Cardinals' game against the Rams.
Analysis: Useless as a running back, Ellington had recorded nine reception in two of his past three games, but won't play in this one.
|10/22/2017||Mike Wallace, Bal, WR|
|Wallace is being evaluated for a concussion in Sunday's game against the Vikings, his former team.
Analysis: He won't return and is likely to be entering concussion protocol.
|10/22/2017||Leonard Fournette, Jax, RB|
|Fournette has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.
Analysis: It seemed like he might give it a go despite missing three straight days of practice, but Fournette will sit after getting 49 carries the past two weeks.
