  • Fantasy football waiver wire: 6 adds and 4 drops for Week 7

    It’s time for our weekly look at the top fantasy football adds and drops to be making on your waiver wire entering Week 7. ADD Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson AP is officially back. After being traded from the Saints to the Cardinals, it took all of one game for Peterson to show he’s still got it. On Sunday, Peterson rushed for 134 yards on 26 carries in the team's 38-33 victory over the Buccaneers. He looked like the old AP that was an RB1 every week, no matter the matchup. It remains to be seen if that will be the case in Arizona, but he’s at least the No. 1 pickup to make on your league’s waiver wire this week. Washington RB Samaje Perine Washington is finally making Samaje Perine the

  • Khiry Robinson: Running back works out for New Orleans Saints

    Oct. 16 (UPI) -- The New Orleans Saints worked out running back Khiry Robinson on Monday, following the departure of Adrian Peterson. A source told the New Orleans Advocate that Robinson was in town for the workout. Robinson entered the NFL in 2013 as an undrafted rookie free agent signing by the Saints.

  • Just-released NaVorro Bowman might have his next job in Oakland

    Former 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman might not leave the Bay Area for his next job. There’s strong mutual interest between Bowman and the Raiders, NFL Network reported Sunday. Bowman is expected to visit the team’s Alameda headquarters in “the coming days,” according to the report. Asked about the possibility of Bowman visiting Monday, head coach Jack Del Rio said after Sunday’s 17-16 loss to the Chargers, “I’m fresh off this game. (general manager) Reggie (McKenzie) is in charge of that part. We’ll talk about it.” The Raiders were not especially strong at linebacker to start the season, and now they’re dealing with injuries. Rookie Marquel Lee missed Sunday’s game because of an ankle injury,

  • Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has requested trade, per reports

    Martavis Bryant's return to action for the Pittsburgh Steelers hasn't gone as many had hoped it would. With just 17 catches for 231 yards this year, the wide receiver has requested a trade from the Steelers, according to ESPN and NFL Network. Bryant missed the 2016 season while serving a yearlong suspension. In 2015, he had 50 catches for 765 yards and six touchdowns. But Bryant has yet to have more than five catches in a game this year, and he eclipsed 50 yards just once (91 against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2). The trade deadline is on Oct. 31.

  • Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara run wild over Detroit in Saints' first game without Adrian Peterson

    When New Orleans traded Adrian Peterson away to the Arizona Cardinals for a sixth-round pick on Tuesday, Saints coach Sean Payton insisted that he believed the trade could be a win for both sides.  Payton's words look prescient after the early returns.  While Peterson was tearing through Tampa Bay's defense on Sunday afternoon, Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara were celebrating the Saints' best rushing performance of the season in a 52-38 win over a Detroit Lions defense that entered the game ranked third in the NFL against the run.  "I was kind of watching the stats as we were going, the pass to run, and it was about 50-50 the entire game," fullback Zach Line said. "Almost exactly 50-50, which is

  • Follow all the Week 6 scores and highlights here

    Let’s enjoy another NFL Sunday, shall we? Unfortunately, a major injury dominated the news again. Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone and could be out the rest of the season. Where do the Packers go from here? The Falcons blew a 17-point lead at home and lost to the Dolphins. Deshaun Watson led the Texans to another big offensive performance against the Browns, who fell to 0-6. Another rookie quarterback, Mitchell Trubisky, got his first win for the Bears — and might have helped saved John Fox’s job. In the afternoon, the NFL’s last remaining unbeaten team finally lost. The Steelers beat the Chiefs, in part because they finally let Le'Veon Bell run wild. Adrian Peterson made his debut for the

  • NFL Week 6 notebook: NFC is up for grabs after Packers lose Aaron Rodgers

    Consider the NFC officially up for grabs. On another wild weekend in which the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints traded bizarre scoring drive for bizarre scoring drive. One where the Atlanta Falcons found a way to blow a 17-0 lead at home at the half. And one that also saw the Skins threaten to blow a big home lead to the winless 49ers. The single most significant development happened early in the day in Minnesota, where Aaron Rodgers ' season likely came to an end with a broken collarbone, taking Green Bay's Super Bowl aspirations with it. Couple that with the decision on Friday, by the NFL, announcing Zeke Elliott is indeed now suspended for the next six-games (pending further potential
