  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick relegated to bench    Tue Oct 20, 11:37 AM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will be replaced as starter after the Week 7 bye by QB Tua Tagovailoa.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick has done his job and the team is ready to move on. This was the team's plan all along, it just comes as a bit of a surprise as Fitzpatrick has mostly played well this season and the Dolphins are 3-3 heading into their Week 7 bye.

  Dolphins | Tua Tagovailoa taking the reins    Tue Oct 20, 11:36 AM

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa was named starting quarterback in Week 8 after the team's bye this week.

Footballguys view: We all knew this day would come...the timing is just interesting. Tagovailoa has the upside to be a franchise quarterback -- something the Dolphins have not had since the days of Dan Marino. They have a bye in Week 7 to give the rookie first-round pick more time to get ready to go. Fantasy GMs in 2-QB leagues or superflex formats should be adding Tagovailoa on the waiver wire this week.

  Eagles | Jalen Hurts' role to increase soon?    Mon Oct 19, 01:08 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has rushed seven times for 49 yards and one catch for three yards through six weeks, and head coach Doug Pederson told reporters Monday, Oct. 19, that he 'could see things continuing' in terms of his role increasing in the offense moving forward.

Footballguys view: We could see the Eagles use Hurts more as the season goes on. He's a quarterback but he's the Eagles version of Taysom Hill. Hurts can hurt a defense as a runner, receiver...and even as a passer on gadget plays. The Eagles need more playmakers on offense and Hurts can be one.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield sore, but OK    Mon Oct 19, 11:54 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (ribs) came out of Week 6 sore, but nowhere near as sore as he was after last week, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.

Footballguys view: The Steelers got after Mayfield early and often. He was sacked four times and generally under pressure from the first snap. Mayfield will be limited in practice with this ribs injury for most of the year. Browns coach Kevin Stefanski announced Mayfield will start Week 7 against the Bengals so long as he's healthy.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins' job on the line?    Mon Oct 19, 11:19 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins said after throwing three interceptions in Week 6: 'The reality is if the pace I'm on in terms of the interceptions, if that were to continue, I won't finish the season,' Cousins said. 'I won't - you know what I mean? There's a little bit of, you got to improve. Whether it's them telling me, 'Hey, we gotta improve,' or them pulling me; we got to get better. That's what the rest of the season will be about for me is trying to protect the football as best I can. Because when you turn the ball over, it really hurts your chances to win. I know that. I just need to improve as we look ahead to the rest of the season.'

Footballguys view: We'll see what kind of changes the Vikings offense makes during their Week 7 bye. They come back in Week 8 in a big game against the Packers and Cousins should perform like a QB2 for Fantasy GMs. Getting RB Dalvin Cook back in Week 8 will greatly help this offense and the performance of Cousins.
