Jacksonville Jaguars Fantasy Spin
Dede Westbrook (shoulder) won’t practice Thursday. Westbrook wasn’t listed on the injury report Wednesday, so this new shoulder injury is very concerning. Marqise Lee (ankle) is banged up as well. Westbrook is a deserving start option this week if healthy, as he carries a solid floor with at least five targets in every game this season. The entire Jaguars pass offense is set up well against a Bengals secondary expected to be without starting CBs Dre Kirkpatrick (knee) and William Jackson (shoulder) for multiple weeks.
Cincinnati Bengals Fantasy Spin
The Athletic’s Katherine Terrell considers Tyler Eifert a potential trade target for the Saints. Via league sources, Terrell reports the Saints have “shown past interest” in Eifert. Now that he’s finally back to full health, Terrell “(wouldn’t) be surprised” if the Saints made a run at the 29-year-old tight end. There have been reports that the Saints are on the prowl for an additional pass catcher. Eifert is contributing close to nothing to a broken offense in Cincinnati.
