Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (ribs) was a limited participant in Wednesday\'s practice.
Insight: He was most likely limited as a result of taking a few big hits in Sunday\'s loss to Indianapolis. The injury is not considered serious, making Bernard an RB1 option for Week 8 against Baltimore.
Description: Pistons guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will receive additional playing time with Jodie Meeks sidelined until at least the middle of December.
Insight: Caldwell-Pope suffered a left knee strain last week, which allows other younger players to show what they can do, but Caldwell-Pope should still be the starter on opening night. He is a late round flier in standard leagues.
Description: Pistons guard Jodie Meeks is no longer a late-round fantasy flier with his back injury.
Insight: Meeks is expected to miss at least two months, which sidelines him until basically Christmas. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will reap the benefits from Meeks\' injury, and fantasy owners should target Caldwell-Pope in the late rounds of standard league drafts.
Description: Wild center Charlie Coyle signed a five-year, $16 million extension with the team on Wednesday according to the startribune.com.
Insight: Coyle is in his last season of his entry-level contract. The new deal will come with a $3.2 million annual cap hit starting next season. Many experts have said this is a great move for Minnesota, but it likely has no effect on fantasy owners.
