Impact: Virgil Green to start. Team also signed Lance Kendricks.

Mike Badgley K LAC: Groin -- Inactive
Impact: Punter Ty Long will continue to struggle in his place.

Bennie Fowler WR NYG: Hamstring -- Active
Impact: Russell Shepard still in the mix for a few targets.

Donte Moncrief WR PIT: Team decision -- Inactive
Impact: Has been in OC Randy Fichtner's doghouse. No need to have him on fantasy rosters any longer. Go grab James Washington.

Rashaad Penny RB SEA: Hamstring -- Inactive
Impact: C.J. Prosise to backup Chris Carson.

Tevin Coleman RB SF: Ankle -- OUT

Tavon Austin WR DAL: Concussion -- OUT
Impact: Cedrick Wilson becomes potential fantasy dart throw.

Michael Gallup WR DAL: Knee -- OUT
Impact: Devin Smith will take on No. 3 WR role for Cowboys.

Impact: Arm out of sling. Long shot to return next week.

Albert Wilson WR MIA: Calf -- OUT
Impact: Preston Williams sees a value jump.

James White RB NE: Personal -- OUT
Impact: White's wife is about to give birth. Patriots use a cavalcade of backs, so it's hard to know who benefits most. It certainly won't hurt the value of either Sony Michel or Rex Burkhead.

Matt LaCosse TE NE: Ankle -- Inactive
Impact: Has very little fantasy upside even when he does play.

Ryan Izzo TE NE: Calf -- Active
Impact: Even less value than teammate LaCosse.

Impact: Could have impact given all the Eagles' WR woes.
