 Robert Griffin III, QB, WAS10/23/2014 5:28:00 PM 
Description: Redskins coach Jay Gruden indicated Robert Griffin III will return for Week 11 against the Buccaneers.  Insight: There is still a small chance Griffin returns for Week 9 at Minnesota, but the wise choice for Gruden would be to hold his quarterback out through the Week 10 bye. Colt McCoy is expected to start in Week 8 against the Cowboys.
 Martellus Bennett, TE, CHI10/23/2014 5:24:00 PM 
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett returned to practice on Thursday according to the Chicago Tribune. Insight: Bennett got a limited practice session in on Thursday, so he is on track to play in Week 8. He has not scored since Week 3, but he continues to get catches and yards. If someone other than Matt Forte scores against New England this week, it will likely be Bennett since the giant Bears receivers draw Darrelle Revis.

 Grady Sizemore, OF, PHI10/23/2014 5:41:00 PM 
Description: Outfielder Grady Sizemore signed a one-year, $2 million contract to stay with the Phillies. Insight: The deal also has performance bonuses. The 32-year-old batted .253 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 176 plate appearances with the Phillies last year and will likely remain a part-time player.
 Michael Cuddyer, RF, COL10/23/2014 5:39:00 PM 
Description: Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports the Mets have interest in free agent outfielder Michael Cuddyer. Insight: Martino says the Mets would like to sign Cuddyer to a two-year deal to add power and a veteran presence to their lineup. Cuddyer only had 190 at-bats this past season, but he hit 20 home runs and 84 RBI in 2013. Of course, that was in Coors Field and not Citi Field.

 Ersan Ilyasova, F, MIL10/23/2014 7:20:00 PM 
Description: Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova played in just 55 games last season, but in a 15-game stretch after the All-Star break, he averaged 14.1 PPG and 7.0 RPG. Insight: The question is whether he can get back to that form, especially with less volume of work. Rookie Jabari Parker will lead the team in shots, so Ilyasova might not have as many opportunities.
 John Henson, C, MIL10/23/2014 7:16:00 PM 
Description: Bucks center John Henson showcased a lot of skill last season and has upside going into 2014-2015. Insight: Henson averaged 15.2 PPG, 10.1 RPG and 2.3 BPG in 12 December games last season. He, however, couldn\'t continue that pace, and he might not have the chance to do so again with Jabari Parker, Ersan Ilyasova and Larry Sanders in the front court. Still, Ilyasova and Sanders are injury prone, so Henson has fantasy worth.

 Andrew Shaw, C, CHI10/23/2014 10:55:00 PM 
Description: Blackhawks center Andrew Shaw score his third goal of the season on Thursday against the Predators. Insight: The goal cut the Nashville lead to 3-2 with about seven minutes left in the third period. The Predators held on to win, though, 3-2. Shaw had one shot on goal and a plus-one rating.
 James Neal, LW, NAS10/23/2014 10:53:00 PM 
Description: Predators winger James Neal scored a hat trick on Thursday against the Blackhawks. Insight: Neal scored the only goals of the game for Nashville, but it was enough for a 3-2 victory. Neal was all over the ice with six shots on net. He now has five goals on the season.
