RB | Cedric Benson | Cincinnati Bengals | Fantasy
Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski is excited to have WR Terrell Owens as part of the team, reports Geoff Hobson, of Bengals.com. "We now have a very talented group. They're big, they're fast, they've got experience. It' excellent," Bratkowski said. He was also quick to point out that the Bengals are still going to stick with who they are as an offense. "We are a big, physical running team and that's what we're going to do. But they can't stack it up on us now and double Chad (Ochocinco) like they have been."

RB | Felix Jones | Dallas Cowboys | Injury, Fantasy

New England Patriots WR Wes Welker (knee) is expected to be ready for the team's Week 1 game, according to Albert Breer, of the Boston Globe.

Although Welker is on the active/Physically Unable to Perform list, no one within the organization expects Welker to land on that list and miss six games. Or, for that matter, a single game. In fact, if the Patriots were preparing for a playoff game Welker could go out and play. He is ready for contact, and is physically well enough to participate in all football activities.
