Tony Romo    QB   Dallas Cowboys
 
Romo (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Romo didn't practice all week, making it hard to buy in to the optimism coach Jason Garrett expressed all week about Romo's chances of playing against Arizona. Romo is shaping up to be a game-time decision Sunday, but luckily for his owners Dallas has an early kickoff.
Brandon Weeden    QB   Dallas Cowboys
 
If Tony Romo (back) is unable to play against Arizona on Sunday, Weeden would start for Dallas.

Charles Clay    TE   Miami Dolphins
 
Clay (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, the Sun Sentinel reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Though he's been a hit-or-miss option of late, Clay's Week 9 fantasy cause could be boosted a bit by the absence of Dion Sims (toe).
Dion Sims    TE   Miami Dolphins
 
Sims (toe) is out for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Sims out, Gator Hoskins slots in as the Dolphins' No. 2 TE behind Charles Clay heading into Sunday's game.

Justin Forsett    RB   Baltimore Ravens
 
Forsett (ankle) practiced fully Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday night's game against the Steelers, the Ravens' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Given the Ravens' late kickoff this week, the probable designation is a relief for Forsett owners, with the running back -- who has combined for 40 carries over his last two outings -- once again on track to head the Ravens' backfield in Week 9.
Ryan Mathews    RB   San Diego Chargers
 
Mathews (knee) was a limited participant in practice Fiday, but he is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With regard to the status of Mathews, who last suited up on Sept. 14, coach Mike McCoy said, "he's getting close." For his part, Gehlken suggests that barring a setback, it would "be a shock" if the running back isn't available for the Chargers' Nov. 16 game against the Raiders, which follows the team's Week 10 bye.
Robert Griffin    QB   Washington Redskins
 
Griffin (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin is ready to return to the field after practicing fully all week, and the Washington coaching staff has made clear that Griffin is the team's starter despite the Colt McCoy-led upset over Dallas on Monday. While Griffin is an intriguing fantasy option now that he's back on the field, it's worth noting that the Vikings possess one of the league's most intimidating and athletic pass rushes.
Ronnie Hillman    RB   Denver Broncos
 
Coach John Fox indicated that Hillman (shoulder) participated fully in Friday's practice, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

Jeremy Hill    RB   Cincinnati Bengals
 
With Giovani Bernard sidelined, Hill is in line to start at running back for the Bengals against the Jaguars on Sunday, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Though Hill is coming off a 10-carry, 25-yard rushing effort in Week 8, given that he is set the head the team's Week 9 backfield, he should see enough carries Sunday to merit lineup consideration in most formats. Meanwhile, with Bernard (who logged 16 carries in Week 8) out, Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead are on hand to serve in complementary roles in the Bengals' backfield this weekend.
Bobby Rainey    RB   Tampa Bay Buccaneers
 
Rainey is expected to start against Cleveland on Sunday since Doug Martin (ankle) is not expected to play, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Rainey will need to hold off Mike James and rookie third-round pick Charles Sims, but Rainey is much more proven than the other two. Considering he has above average pass-catching skills and is facing a Cleveland defense allowing 4.8 yards per carry, Rainey could have a surprising amount of fantasy upside this week.
A.J. Green    WR   Cincinnati Bengals
 
Green (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While Green's questionable listing is an acknowledgment that he isn't a lock to play, things do appear to be trending in that direction after the wideout turned in a full week of limited practice participation. "A.J. has looked fine," coach Marvin Lewis said Friday. "He wants to play. He's telling everybody he wants to play. If everything stays the way it is, he'll play." We'll track Green's status as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches, but at this stage, it appears that it would take a pre-game setback to keep him out of action this weekend.
Giovani Bernard    RB   Cincinnati Bengals
 
Bernard (hip/clavicle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Per ESPN.com, coach Marvin Lewis indicated that it's too early to get a read on Bernard's status for this coming Thursday's game against the Browns, but with regard to the running back sitting this weekend, Lewis noted, "the rest is going to be good for him." With Bernard ruled out, Jeremy Hill is in line to head the Bengals' Week 9 rushing attack, with Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead available to work in complementary roles on Sunday.
Cecil Shorts    WR   Jacksonville Jaguars
 
Shorts (groin) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
