It capped an unusual week when the Colts fired coach Frank Reich and replaced him with Saturday, whose only prior coaching experience was at a Georgia high school.news.yahoo.com

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 9: Damien Harris Settling Into Lead Back Role For Patriots
RB Damien Harris, New England Patriots- Harris has only been active for four of New England’s games this season. The Patriots have lost four consecutive games, but a Week 9 matchup against the Jets should snap that streak. Tight EndsTE Logan Thomas, Washington Football Team- Washington’s Week 8 bye has seemingly quieted the buzz around Logan Thomas.

By Matt Citak(CBS Boston)- With Week 6 in the books, we are now officially halfway through the fantasy season. Between the injuries suffered in Week 6 and four teams having upcoming byes, this week will be an interesting one on the waiver wire. QB Derek Carr, Las Vegas Raiders– The Raiders are also coming off their bye week, which is probably why no one is talking about Carr’s recent performance. Running BacksRB Giovani Bernard, Cincinnati Bengals– Bernard didn’t do much in Week 6, but the injury to Joe Mixon could pave the way for Bernard to step in as the Bengals’ featured running back.

Raiders-Chiefs Preview: Battle For AFC West Lead Heats Up
The Oakland Raiders (6-5) remain one win out of the AFC West lead and in the thick of the AFC wildcard race. The Raiders defense has held up enough to this point in the season. So, I dont expect the Raiders defense to be able to keep up with the Chiefs.Its no secret that Kansas Citys offensive attack relies on the arm of Mahomes. The high-powered Chiefs offense cant overwhelm the patched-together Raiders defense if they cant get on the field. And the Raiders offense can help limit opportunities for the opposition by sustaining drives, controlling the clock and ultimately putting up points.detroit.cbslocal.com

QB Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans Dont look now but in his first two starts of the 2019 season, Tannehill has a 5:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio to go with over 500 passing yards. The Titans are always going to be a run-heavy offense, so Tannehill isnt likely to throw for 300 yards a game. QB Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders Carr picked apart the Texans secondary in Week 8, throwing for 285 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions in a 27-24 loss. Beasley was able to turn seven targets into three receptions for 41 yards and a score in Week 8.

Raiders-Packers Preview: Derek Carr, Josh Jacobs Lead Oakland Into Green Bay
In their resurgence, this Raiders team has relied on the running game, short passes, and a defense that does enough. Rookie Josh Jacobs ran for 126 yards and two touchdowns against a Bears team that featured former Raiders standout Khalil Mack. The Packers defense limited the Lions production, particularly when it mattered. The Packers defense forced five field goals, which, as much as the questionable late calls against Lions, helped determine the games outcome. Thats fortunate for Green Bay, because their running game has struggled at times, despite delivering yards in recent weeks.detroit.cbslocal.com
