-- Patriots Sign Griff Whalen --
Thu Dec 8, 2016 --from FFMastermind.com

-- Mike Gillislee to Continue to See Red Zone Carries --
Thu Dec 8, 2016 --from FFMastermind.com

Gillislee had two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to Oakland, getting goal line carries over RB LeSean McCoy and RB Jonathan Williams.

-- Jets IR Nick Mangold; Sign One --
Thu Dec 8, 2016 --from FFMastermind.com

AP reports the New York Jets have placed C Nick Mangold (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season. The team has signed S Doug Middleton from their practice squad.

-- Rams Front Office & HC Jeff Fisher Have Toxic Relationship --
Thu Dec 8, 2016 --from FFMastermind.com

SI.com reports the struggling 4-8 Los Angeles Rams host Atlanta on Sunday, then head to Seattle before closing the season with San Francisco and Arizona at home. If the Rams split those four, they’ll match the 2014 low-water mark for HC Jeff Fisher’s five years at the helm. If things don’t get better over the next month, there’s no assurance the club will go forward with any of the current power brokers on the football side. And when you say “get better,” that means more than just beating the Niners or Falcons. It also means seeing the middle-school lunchroom sniping—the kind that earned the building the “Junior High” nickname—fixed to a reasonable degree. Fisher’s take about the talent on the roster provides a window into the issue dividing the Rams front office. You can infer that a certain amount of water must flow under a team’s bridge before a high-ranking executive, like Fisher, publicly pees in the company pool. “It pissed me off because I knew it was meant as a shot,” said one Rams source. “You see it under that umbrella—‘We need to do a better job in personnel.’ OK, but you want everyone to think that you have full control. You can’t have it both ways, and it can’t always be the talent. Look at the roster, 2012 to now. In ’12, Jeff did a masterful job with what he was given. But we’ve gotten more talent, and we’ve gotten worse.”
