DeSean Jackson (abdomen) still sidelined for Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is not practicing Wednesday.
Jackson has been sidelined since Week 2. Consider him questionable at best for Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
The Bills are 4th in the NFL in receiving yards allowed per game.
A.J. Green (ankle) expected to remain on Bengals' sidelines Sunday
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green (ankle) is unlikely to play Week 8 against the Los Angeles Rams, per Ben Baby of ESPN.
Green is set up to make his season debut in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens after the team's bye, unless the team trades him of course. Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate, and Alex Erickson will run in three-wide sets against Jalen Ramsey and company on Sunday.
Operating under the assumption Green returns Week 10, he's the WR29 in numberFire's season-long fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 71.5 targets, 39.5 receptions, 540.4 yards, and 3.21 touchdowns.
Chris Herndon (hamstring) back at Jets practice
New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon (hamstring) is returning to practice on Wednesday.
Herndon is participating on a limited basis in his first official practice of the season. He was suspended for the first four games and then missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury. The 2018 fourth-round pick could emerge as one of Sam Darnold's preferred targets at the shallowest position in fantasy.
Herndon is currently the TE20 in numberFire's season-long fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 276.0 yards and 1.79 touchdowns on 23.6 receptions and 35.8 targets.
James Conner (quad) expects to play for Steelers Monday
Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (quad) expects to play Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night.
The Steelers were on bye last week and don't play until Monday this week, so Conner has had extended time off and still gets an extra day of rest. He should eat in a home matchup that favors the Steelers by 14.5 points over the winless Dolphins. Conner totaled over 115 yards in two of the last three games before the bye.
numberFire's models project Conner for 20.6 FanDuel points on Monday, at a cost of $7,000. He's the RB3 in our Week 8 fantasy rankings.
Adrian Peterson still intends to play for Washington versus Vikings
Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson (ankle) said he plans to play in Thursday's Week 8 game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Peterson has reportedly been diagnosed with a Grade 1 high-ankle sprain and Grade 2 low-ankle sprain, but he says his foot is "feeling good." If Peterson winds up being ruled out, Wendell Smallwood may be asked to lead Washington's backfield.
Peterson is currently the RB30 in numberFire's Week 8 fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 8.9 FanDuel points, at a cost of $5,700.
Cardinals reportedly adding Alfred Morris to backfield
The Arizona Cardinals signed free agent running back Alfred Morris.
This may be an indication that David Johnson (back) isn't playing in Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints. Morris has been on the open market all season after spending training camp with the Dallas Cowboys. Chase Edmonds is still expected to handle lead-back duties if Johnson is ruled out.
Morris rushed 111 times for 428 yards (3.9 per carry) and 2 touchdowns in 12 games for the San Francisco 49ers last season.
