Arian Foster to have season-ending back surgery
Sunday, November 10, 2013, 9:29am
Foster was expected to meet with the Texans in the next day or two to help determine how soon he should have the surgery.
Arian Foster should head to IR later this week and is droppable in all redraft leagues. With Foster on the shelf, Ben Tate will continue to carry the load with Dennis Johnson, Ray Graham and Deji Karim behind him on the depth chart. Tate is playing with four broken ribs himself and is a free agent at the end of this season.

Midway through his first season with the Lions, RB Reggie Bush has 119 carries for 518 yards and 31 catches for 335 yards. That puts him on pace for more rushing yards than he ever had in New Orleans, more catches than he ever had in Miami, and more receiving yards than he’s ever had anywhere.
Bush told Albert Breer of NFL Network that he gives the credit for his success this season to the Lions’ offense, which is the first system he’s played in that provides just the right blend of running and receiving.
“It’s because of the system, the way I’m used,” Bush told Breer. “It’s pretty even. When I was in New Orleans, it was more passing. When I was in Miami, it was a lot more running and very little passing. Here’s the best of both worlds for me.”

I still see the Browns looking hard at a quarterback in the first round, because Brian Hoyer is coming off a torn ACL and Jason Campbell will be 32 in December. I still think the Browns need to determine if their quarterback of the future is in this draft class.
But the play of Hoyer and Campbell has taken the pressure of for having to draft one with their first pick in the round one. If they see a good developmental quarterback in round two or three, they could always go that route and let Hoyer and Campbell battle it out for the starting job in 2014.
The Browns really liked Hoyer coming into the season but pretty much had to go with Brandon Weeden as the starter. It's a shame what happened to Hoyer and having to miss the rest of the season, so there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the position. But at least Hoyer could be given another serious look with Weeden's status kind of up in the air at this point. The Browns will need to add a running back in the offseason to give them some balance.

According to a jail spokesperson, Simpson refused a breathalyzer and was arrested on probable cause. Jail records show he was booked at 5:39 a.m. Saturday.
Simpson, 27, is on a 36-hour hold, the spokesperson said. Because it's a weekend, Simpson could be held until noon Tuesday, though a judge could review his case sooner, the spokesperson said.

"He's almost like a punt returner that's playing running back," Ravens defensive end Chris Canty said. "He's a jitterbug. He gets in and out of cuts very quickly. He can accelerate very quickly. He gets into those small holes.
"He's got good vision for a young back. He's fearless. He'll cut it all the way back to the back side. We're going to have to play disciplined team defense."
"Very dynamic back," strong safety James Ihedigbo said. "The things he can do out of the backfield create mismatches. He's a good player."
Bernard has rushed for 361 yards on 81 carries, averaging 4.5 yards per carry. He's caught 30 passes for 267 yards and two touchdowns. He rushed for two touchdowns against the Dolphins, gaining 79 yards on nine carries. Bernard is still losing carries to BenJarvus Green-Ellis, but Bernard continues to impress this season. It's a tough matchup for Bernard this season who is ranked 24th in our PPR rankings, making him a flex or RB3 play.

The Eagles have 25 offensive TDs this season, and are averaging an astondingly low 1:48 in time of possession on those drives. They are the fastest scoring team in the NFL, by a mile.
Amazingly, the Eagles' longest drive of the season was 3:58. There are 5 teams who average at least 3:58 per scoring drive.
The story points out the Eagles hurry-up offense has a lot to do with faster drives. However, the Eagles have more explosive plays (plays of 20+ yards) than any other team in the NFL, and the next closest team, the Broncos, is 12 plays off the Eagles' pace (The Eagles have not yet had their bye, which also factors in). Unfortunately for the Eagles, they have been inconsistent, going two full games without an offensive score. Any kind of consistency this season and who know what we'd be seeing from guys like DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy in terms of fantasy production. But under HC Chip Kelly for just his first year, the consistency could eventually come...
