    Ravens signed RB Fitzgerald Toussaint from their practice squad.

    Advice: It's a sign that Bernard Pierce (questionable, thigh) could be held out this week. If active, Toussaint will provide depth behind Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro. Rotoworld.com

  • Darren McFadden to receive heavy workload
    Darren McFadden is expected to receive a heavy workload even if Maurice Jones-Drew (hand surgery) is active for Week 3.

    Advice: McFadden was an every-down back last week, and will remain Oakland's starter. He's going to get the majority of carries over Jones-Drew and Latavius Murray, but isn't more than a low-end RB3/FLEX against the Jets' run defense. McFadden had just 37 yards on 12 carries in Week 2. Rotoworld.com

  • Raiders want to get Marcel Reece involved
    Raiders OC Greg Olson said he will "continue to find ways" to use RB Marcel Reece.

    Advice: "Continue" is an interesting choice of words considering Reece only has four touches through the first two games of the season. Olson at least recognizes Reece needs to get the ball more, but he is unlikely to ever become a fantasy option as the Raiders' Swiss-army knife. Oakland ranks in the bottom of five of points scored, total yards and rushing yards this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Reiss: Hard to tell which back will lead the
    ESPN Boston admits it's "tough to tell" which running back will lead the way in Sunday's game against the Raiders.

    Advice: This should be a perfect spot for the Patriots to ground-n-pound with big back Stevan Ridley. But Bill Belichick often zigs when everyone assumes he'll zag, leaving a little risk in both Ridley and Shane Vereen. Beat writer Mike Reiss does note that the Patriots "like their chances" to run against a Raiders team that has already given up 100-yard games to Chris Ivory and Arian Foster this season. In theory, there's enough room for both of the Patriots' backs to eat. Rotoworld.com

    ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano has gotten indications from the coaches that Rashad Jennings will be asked to help in pass protection this week.

    Advice: The Giants' shaky offensive line is going to need all the help they can get dealing with J.J. Watt. It appears they'll ask Jennings to stay in and help, or at least chip. Jennings, who has four catches in each of the first two games, may not get there this week. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Even on a bad foot, Ellington has rushed 28 times for 144 yards (5.14 YPC) and caught six balls for 37 yards through two games. Now he's getting healthier, has a home game against a 49ers defense that is far from dominant Sunday and then gets the Week 4 bye to rest up. Owners just need to realize that Ellington will lose goal-line work to Jalen Parmele. Rotoworld.com

"We appreciate his effort," coach Andy Reid said of Charles. "He came in and pushed through this thing. If he can't go he can't go. The other guys have practiced."

Still, it's fair to wonder if an injury to Pierce could be the opening rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro needs to grab playing time. Pierce was ineffective for most of last Thursday night's game, before racking up garbage-time yards. Justin Forsett remains a change-up back. Rotoworld.com

He leads the NFL in carries through two games. Foster also has a scary injury history when it comes to hamstrings.

A Week 6 return would be right at four weeks, and comes directly after the Dolphins' Week 5 bye. Players are always more optimistic about their own injuries, so we're not going to hold Moreno to this. Owners need to continue to stash Moreno.

Rodgers received a carry from the Bucs' five-yard line in the first quarter, but got stuffed for a three-yard loss.

    Antone Smith rushed four times for 50 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta's Week 3 win over the Bucs, also losing a fumble.

    Advice: Smith's score was one of his patented big plays, as he rushed 38 yards through a tired and miserable Bucs defense to put the Falcons up 56-0 in the fourth quarter. He found the hole, then the edge and was off to the races. Smith's fumble came at the Bucs' one-yard line the end of a shifty 10-yard scamper in the second quarter. Smith has proven time and again he's worthy of more work as a change-of-pace back, but the Falcons don't appear ready to give it to him. That keeps him off the radar in 12-14 team leagues.

    Advice: Getting major second-half run in a game the Falcons led 35-0 at halftime, Freeman had a chance to stuff the stat-sheet, but instead got stuffed.

    Advice: Per ESPN's Adam Teicher, Charles participated in warmups, spent a "brief period" being tended to by the team's trainer and then joined position drills. Charles was apparently even "cutting through cones." It would suggest Charles isn't dealing with a high-ankle sprain at all, and that the Chiefs have been misapplying the phrase. There's still more reason to believe Charles will sit than suit up this weekend, but we obviously don't have enough information right now.

  • Reid: Plan won't change much if Knile starts
    Coach Andy Reid confirmed that the game plan won't change much if Knile Davis starts in place of Jamaal Charles (ankle) against the Dolphins Sunday.

    Advice: Charles has missed all or most of the three games across the last two seasons. In those games, Davis is averaging 22.3 carries, 5.0 catches, 97.0 total yards and has scored six touchdowns. Reid and the Chiefs have every reason to be confident in the second-year back as someone they can build offense through. The RB-dependent scheme Reid has installed would stay intact, leaving Davis as a RB1 candidate. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Arian Foster has taken the rock an absurd 55 times through the Texans' first two games, putting him on pace for 440 carries. That would break Larry Johnson's single-season record by 24. Owners may cringe at the idea of a reduced workload, but it's not like Foster would suddenly be a part of a committee. The Texans have to scale back his work to keep him healthy.

    Advice: "But it does have the component of a high-ankle sprain," Reid added in fluent coachspeak. Regardless of Reid's remarks, high-ankle sprains are multi-week injuries, and typically require at least a month's absence. If Charles can come back sooner, the Chiefs may have been stretching the definition of "high-ankle sprain," much like the Bills seemed to do with C.J. Spiller in 2013. Either way, fantasy owners should plan on being without Charles for at least the rest of September. Backup Knile Davis is this week's top waiver add. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Although OC Greg Olson promised late in the week to involve Latavius Murray, the sophomore runner only touched the ball once aside from kickoff returns, gaining six yards on his lone carry. McFadden was the every-down back and struggled, having two longer runs called back by penalties at the line of scrimmage and failing to create any of his own running room.

    Advice: Jamaal Charles exited the game early in the first half with a sprained ankle and never returned. Davis was dropped into the every-down role and became the focal point of the offense, as if he actually were Charles. Davis was targeted nine times in the passing game to lead the team. His college tape wasn't very impressive at Arkansas, but Davis has looked plenty athletic and shifty since being drafted by the Chiefs. He'll be in the RB1/2 conversation next week against the Dolphins should Charles miss the game. Davis will be the top waiver add this week. Rotoworld.com

The Jaguars offensive line is playing like a bottom-five unit, the box is getting stacked because of Chad Henne's ineptitude, Gerhart's athleticism has been sapped by an ankle issue and the Jags aren't sustaining drives into the red zone.

    Advice: "We'll start with Darren, and it probably will be more series-wise with Latavius and Darren," Olson said. DMC is guaranteed to start, but that's about it. The Raiders will give Murray a chance to show what he can do after he rushed for 94 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries (4.1 YPC) in the preseason. McFadden will be a shaky RB3/FLEX play. Murray is athletically-gifted. Rotoworld.com

  • Bernard Pierce rushes for 96 yards in start
    Bernard Pierce got the start in Baltimore's Week 2 win over the Steelers, rushing 22 times for 96 yards with a seven-yard reception.

    Advice: Pierce was clearly the leader of the Ravens' committee, starting over Justin Forsett and touching the ball on seven of Baltimore's first nine plays. He didn't do a whole heck of a lot before garbage time, however, notching 20 of his yards on two meaningless final carries with the Ravens winning 26-6 with less than two minutes remaining. Pierce got the rock four times inside the Steelers' five-yard line, but failed to find the end zone. With that pessimism out of the way, Pierce will undoubtedly start against the Browns in Week 3. He'll be on the RB2 borderline, and a viable FLEX play. Rotoworld.com

  • Christine Michael not practicing Thursday
    Christine Michael (hamstring) remained sidelined Thursday.

    Advice: Coach Pete Carroll had been optimistic Michael would return Thursday. Michael will almost certainly miss Sunday's game against the Chargers, again leaving Robert Turbin as Marshawn Lynch's unquestioned No. 2. Rotoworld.com

  • Knowshon Moreno still 'limited' on Thursday
    Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: It's not a concern. Moreno is just banged up after taking the ball 24 times in Sunday's win over the Patriots. Moreno is shaping up as a legit RB2 in OC Bill Lazor's run-heavy attack. Rotoworld.com

  • Arian Foster (ribs) practicing in full
    Arian Foster is on the Week 2 injury report with a ribs issue, but is practicing in full.

    Advice: Foster's health is a long-term question mark, but his ribs "injury" is a nonissue. Ticketed for some of the league's heaviest workloads, Foster is a locked-in RB1. Rotoworld.com

  • Toby Gerhart (ankle) expects to play Sunday
    Toby Gerhart (ankle) confirmed he expects to play in Sunday's game against the Redskins.

    Advice: He was officially limited in Thursday's practice. Gerhart thought he suffered a severe injury when Fletcher Cox tackled him from behind in Week 1, but he escaped with a sprain. He's going to get some work in during Thursday's practice, a great sign that he'll be ready to rock Sunday. The Redskins will be playing without starting nose tackle Barry Cofield. Rotoworld.com

  • McCluster has no idea how many reps he'll get
    Dexter McCluster said his weekly carry count could range anywhere from two to 20.

    Advice: McCluster is exaggerating some here, but his point is that the Titans running backs don't even know how much they'll be used each week. In Week 1, starting two-down back Shonn Greene led the way with 15 carries and 32 snaps, while McCluster was next with nine carries on 19 snaps. Leon Washington added 18 snaps and Bishop Sankey got 10. "It's just kind of all how the game unfolds. It's how the game comes," McCluster said. The committee approach here keeps ceilings capped even in a dream matchup like Sunday's with the Cowboys. Rotoworld.com

  • Arian Foster: Heavy workloads here to stay
    Arian Foster said the heavy workload he saw in Week 1 is here to stay.

    Advice: Foster racked up 27 carries and two catches as the Texans grinded through the Redskins in Week 1. New coach Bill O'Brien is something of a rare breed these days as he has no interest in any kind committee in the backfield. "He said that all offseason, and (it's) not lip service," Foster said. "That's what he wants to do." Arian is going to pile up touches in a cake matchup at Oakland Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Toby Gerhart is 'making good progress'
    Coach Gus Bradley said Toby Gerhart (ankle) is "making good progress."

    Advice: Gerhart didn't practice Wednesday, but he appears headed toward the good side of a questionable tag. This game against the Barry Cofield-less Redskins should be a good spot for Gerhart to rack up quality volume. Rotoworld.com

  • McFadden to start if MJD can't play
    Darren McFadden will start at tailback in Week 2 against the Texans if Maurice Jones-Drew (hand surgery) can't play.

    Advice: Coach Dennis Allen is saying MJD "won't miss a significant amount of time," but his Sunday availability is definitely in doubt. If Jones-Drew can't play, McFadden will start and Latavius Murray and Marcel Reece will each "get some carries." DMC would become an interesting RB2/flex play in a favorable matchup. Redskins coach Jay Gruden inexplicably abandoned the run against the Texans last week, but Alfred Morris posted a 6.5 YPC average and Roy Helu chipped in 46 yards on four carries. The Houston defense is quite vulnerable on the ground. Rotoworld.com

  • Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) limited Wed.
    Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: It's a new injury for Moreno, but we've seen no reason to be concerned about his availability for Week 2. Moreno piled up 134 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries in the opener against the Patriots. He's a comfy RB2 vs. the Bills. Rotoworld.com

    Christine Michael (hamstring) will not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Michael is expected to resume practicing Thursday, according to coach Pete Carroll. He was inactive for Seattle's Thursday night opener, and is questionable to play this week. The missed time has allowed Robert Turbin to handle all the work behind Marshawn Lynch. Rotoworld.com

    Toby Gerhart (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: The Jaguars are likely just playing it safe with Gerhart. He sprained his ankle against the Eagles, but later returned. Coach Gus Bradley already said he expects Gerhart to be limited in practice this week. We'd be surprised if he didn't play against the Redskins. Gerhart will be a solid RB2 option. Rotoworld.com

    De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring) has yet to resume practicing.

    Advice: Thomas missed Week 1 after suffering a hamstring injury during the week. He was replaced by Frankie Hammond on punt returns. Thomas will need to return by Friday to have any chance of playing against the Broncos. Rotoworld.com

  • Pierce expected to lead Ravens in carries
    ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley still expects Bernard Pierce to lead the team in carries this season.

    Advice: Despite his Week 1 benching, coach John Harbaugh said Pierce remains a big part of the plans at running back. "You don't lose faith in a player because of a bad play," Harbaugh said. "Bernard is still on his way to becoming, I would say, a very good player." While Justin Forsett may get the start Thursday night against the Steelers, the Ravens know the undersized scatback can't carry a full load. Pierce can at 6'/230. Long-term, Pierce is the back to own in fantasy. Rotoworld.com
