  • Gerald McCoy not expected to play Thursday
    The Bucs are not expecting DT Gerald McCoy (hand) to play in Thursday night's game against the Falcons.

    Advice: McCoy just broke his hand four days ago against the Rams. He'll be able to play through it with a club, but it's just too soon. Look for Da'Quan Bowers to start. Rotoworld.com

  • PFT: Peterson most likely done in Minnesota
    ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio considers it unlikely that Adrian Peterson will ever play for the Vikings again.

    Advice: Peterson won't be allowed to play until after his child-abuse case is resolved. Florio is saying the case is likely to go to a trial, and therefore wouldn't be over until well after the season. However, Peterson has plenty of incentive to work out a plea deal as soon as possible if it means the NFL will reinstate him. As for 2015, Peterson is owed $12.75 million -- an untenable number for a 30-year-old running back. Rotoworld.com

  • Vikings to expand McKinnon's role this week?
    ESPN 1500 Twin Cities says Jerick McKinnon "should definitely be more of a factor starting Sunday."

    Advice: Anyone who has seen Matt Asiata stagger his way to a career 3.56 YPC knows this should be the case. The question is if the Vikings see it. Perhaps now that the coaches have a full week of preparation without Adrian Peterson, they'll install the freaky McKinnon as a major part of the gameplan. He's not startable yet in fantasy, but he's a must hold. If the Vikings want to move the football on the ground, McKinnon is their best bet. Rotoworld.com

  • Rainey to start over Doug Martin Thursday?
    The Tampa Bay Times says Bobby Rainey will start Thursday's game against the Falcons.

    Advice: "Not just because of Doug Martin's knee. Coaches really like [Rainey]," said beat writer Rick Stroud. To be clear, this looks like educated speculation, not sourced reporting. Coach Lovie Smith has declined to name a starter, only saying he wants to use a committee. But it's not that far-fetched to think that the Bucs want to ride Rainey's hot hand after he put up 174 total yards on 25 touches in Week 2. It's a messy situation, but at this point we'd give Rainey the edge as the better flex play in this cake matchup. Martin is averaging a pathetic 3.41 YPC over the last two seasons (seven games).

Now he's staring a monster opportunity in the face as he'll pair with passing back Pierre Thomas for the next month. A powerful, elusive runner that's underrated in the pass game, Robinson is definitely on the flex radar for this week's home game against the shell-shocked Vikings.

It's a troubling step back for a player that appeared poised to take the next step in his third NFL season. The good news is that footwork is correctable, and Tannehill gets to face a bad Chiefs secondary at home on Sunday. He's still firmly in the QB2 conversation. Rotoworld.com

That aggressive kind of scheme won't be a weekly occurrence though, as the vast majority of defensive coordinators will fear Aaron Rodgers and play coverage.

After a Jarrett Boykin red-zone drop in Week 2, Adams came on and shined with a 5-50-0 line on seven targets and 37 snaps. As the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says, Boykin is "steady" but Adams can "stress a defense." The second-round rookie is the one to stash as the potential home run if he can fully pass Boykin. As for this week's potential shootout with the Lions, expect a rotation. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Fantasy owners of A.P. are left in the dark as they wait for the court's decision. It's worth noting Peterson is a first-time offender with no known criminal background, so it's entirely possible he merely gets a slap on the wrist for punishing his son too harshly. Peterson's first court hearing is not until October 8, but expect his attorneys to push hard for a quick resolution. Matt Asiata needs to be owned everywhere, as does rookie Jerick McKinnon.

    Tony Romo has attempted only five passes over 20 yards in the Cowboys' first two games.

    Advice: Of the five passes, only one was completed -- a 56-yard catch to Dwayne Harris that was underthrown. Romo attributed his downfield struggles to "poor body positioning" and not decreased arm strength coming off two back surgeries. Still, it's clear the Cowboys are taking fewer chances downfield, and relying more on getting touches to DeMarco Murray. Coach Jason Garrett said he isn't concerned about the pass offense, but admitted that Romo's back injury "remains a work in progress." Romo is averaging 6.9 YPA this season. The Cowboys rank 22nd in the NFL with 201.5 pass yards per game. Rotoworld.com

  • Khiry Robinson's role set to grow
    Khiry Robinson's role is set to expand with Mark Ingram (hand) out at least a month.

    Advice: Robinson is a former UDFA out of West Texas A&M that has a lot of Chris Ivory in his game. PFF credited him with 15 missed tackles forced on 75 rushes last season (including playoffs) and he graded out higher than the likes of Reggie Bush and Matt Forte in Elusive Ratings. Unlike Ivory, Robinson is also a plus in the pass game. Now looking at the goal-line work and a share of the base snaps with Pierre Thomas, Khiry is worth adding in all formats. Rotoworld.com

    The NFL says the Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy cases are under review.

    Advice: The Vikings chose to reinstate Peterson Monday, but deferred any questions about further discipline to the league office. The NFL's new hire Lisa Friel, a former New York prosecutor, is examining both cases. No one seems to know if the NFL has the power to step in and suspend Peterson before the case goes to trial, but we do know that FOX's Jay Glazer reported Sunday it falls under the new domestic violence policy. First-time offenders of that policy get a six-game ban. We'd try to hold Matt Asiata until the dust settles here. Rotoworld.com

The Rams don't do a lot well as a team, but they do stop the run. They finished 2013 as a top-nine run defense and held Adrian Peterson to 75 yards on 21 carries last week. Start Rainey at your own risk. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Doug Martin (knee) won't play Sunday
    According to FOX's Jay Glazer, Doug Martin (knee) will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.

    Advice: A knee injury that originally seemed minor is serious enough to cause Martin to sit. Consider him questionable for a dreamy Week 3 matchup at Atlanta. Backup Bobby Rainey, who averaged just 3.88 YPC on 137 rushes last year, steps in as a shaky RB3 type against a very strong Rams run defense. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: It should be noted that this doesn't appear to be a firm report, and more along the lines of speculation. Krasniqi "expect(s) to see a lot of Bobby Rainey" ... "regardless" of Martin's availability versus St. Louis. Rotoworld.com

    Roddy White (knee) is officially active for Week 2 against the Bengals.

    Advice: Fire him up as you normally would. White is in the WR1 conversation for what should be a high-scoring game. Inactive for the Falcons are LT Jake Matthews, QB Sean Renfree, WR Courtney Roby, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, C James Stone and DE Cliff Matthews. Matthews' absence leaves Gabe Carimi on Matt Ryan's blindside, and Lamar Holmes on the right. It's a concern, but not enough to downgrade Matt Ryan. Rotoworld.com

  • Jerick McKinnon is a freak athlete
    Jerick McKinnon's SPARQ score of 147.5 was one of the top scores among all running backs over the last 16 years.

    Advice: As you can read in the Zach Whitman column linked below, SPARQ is a metric developed by Nike to apply a single composite score to a player's athleticism. An elite NFL athlete is around 140 and the 150+ range is reserved for the Calvin Johnson types. The point is that although McKinnon is very raw as he comes out of Georgia Southern and has very little pass pro experience, he's a freak. "Backs with McKinnon's speed, lower-body explosiveness and upper-body strength just don't exist," wrote Whitman. He'll be a change-of-pace back behind Matt Asiata to start, but his fantasy ceiling is far higher. McKinnon is a solid stash while we see where Adrian Peterson's case goes. Rotoworld.com

  • Doug Martin (knee) expected to play vs. Rams
    Despite his questionable tag, the Tampa Bay Times reports Doug Martin (knee) is expected to play in Week 2 against St. Louis.

    Advice: Coach Lovie Smith has been adamant all week that Martin was not benched in last week's loss to the Panthers, despite rumors to the contrary. Smith also promised the Buccaneers will stay committed to the running game moving forward. "I've talked about how important Doug is to us," Smith insisted. "Just our running game in general, we were trying to get it going with all of our guys. Doug is our lead guy. We weren't able to for whatever reason this first game, but we'll stay committed to it." Martin is an RB2 against the Rams. Rotoworld.com

  • Bucs list Doug Martin questionable for Week 2
    After practicing on a limited basis Thursday and Friday, Doug Martin (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 2 against the Rams.

    Advice: The fact that Martin participated in practice on back-to-back days to finish out the week, even in limited form, suggests he is tentatively on track to play. Still, he may officially come down to a game-time decision, and is also in danger of losing some touches to Bobby Rainey, on whom the Bucs' coaching staff is clearly high. The Rams and Bucs don't play until 4:05PM ET on Sunday, so Martin owners need to have an alternative ready in an early game, or at the very least have Rainey rostered as a handcuff. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Lacy took a thundering helmet-to-helmet hit from headhunter Brandon Meriweather in Week 2 last season, sidelining Lacy with his first NFL concussion. He now believes the helmet wasn't the problem. This really has nothing to do with Lacy's performance. He's fully expected to start against the Jets on Sunday.

Flacco didn't do anything fancy, instead relentlessly targeting Steve Smith and his tight ends on short-to-intermediate routes. He looked Smith's way a whopping 10 times compared to only three for Torrey Smith. Flacco will remain a low-end QB2 for Baltimore's Week 3 trip to Cleveland. Rotoworld.com

    In his nine previous games following a three-interception day, Tony Romo has a 94.2 passer rating.

    Advice: Romo (back) is on the Week 2 injury report, but practicing in full. Romo was out of sorts in the Week 1 loss to the 49ers, tossing three picks in the first 20 minutes. A bounce-back game against the Titans Sunday should surprise no one. He's been especially strong off three-interception performances lately, throwing seven touchdowns against four picks while averaging 279.7 passing yards in the last four instances. Note that Dallas is only a 3.5 point underdog in a game with a healthy over/under of 49.5. Rotoworld.com

    Stepfan Taylor caught three passes for 21 yards and one touchdown in Arizona's Week 1 win over the Chargers, adding five yards rushing on one attempt.

    Advice: Taylor was the third back in the game behind Andre Ellington (foot) and Jonathan Dwyer. He got some run in the red zone early in the fourth quarter while Ellington nursed his injury. Taylor ended up catching a five-yard score from Carson Palmer on a rollout. Taylor isn't a fantasy option, and won't be anything more than a weak one in the event Ellington ever misses extended time.
