Fantasy Football: Talkin’ About Practice Week 7

Oct 21, 2009

Felix Jones (knee) managed to practice for the Cowboys, but his fantasy value took a hit when he went down.  Tashard Choice has passed him as Marion Barber’s primary backup.

Jerious Norwood (hip) will miss this week’s game against Dallas.  Jason Snelling will be Michael Turner’s primary backup, but doesn’t offer much fantasy value.

Limited in Practice:
Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle) – Should be fine, but has tough matchup this week against Arizona.
Jerricho Cotchery (hamstring) – Could be a game-time decision.  Proceed with caution.
Percy Harvin (shoulder) – Forgotten man in Minny.  Wouldn’t play him anyway.
Eli Manning (foot) – He’ll be good to go against Arizona’s weak pass D.
Rashard Mendenhall (knee) – He’ll be good to go, but has tougher test against the Vikings.
Adrian Peterson (ankle) – He’ll play on Sunday.  Gotta start him despite tough matchup.
Jeremy Shockey (shoulder)  – Should be fine against Miami.

Missed Practice:
Donnie Avery (hip) – Likely game-time decision.  Stay away.
Trent Edwards (concussion) – He’ll miss this week, but who’s using him anyway?
Jerome Harrison (flu) – Should be fine on Sunday, but should not be in lineups.
Sammy Morris (knee) – Likely won’t play this week.  Hard to get a read on his status.
Clinton Portis (ankle) – He’ll likely play, but has tough test against Eagles.
Jonathan Stewart (heel) -  Heel be good to go (pun intended).  This is part of his routine.
