  • Garoppolo & Brissett both practicing Thursday
    Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) both were at practice Thursday.

    Advice: Both were limited on Wednesday. It was just a walkthrough, but it is looking more and more likely Garoppolo will play Sunday. He will be a solid streaming option at home against the Bills. Rotoworld.com 44 minutes ago

  • Dirk Koetter says Bucs throwing 'too much'
    Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said the team has "thrown too much" in the last two games.

    Advice: Jameis Winston has thrown 110 times total in the last two games after attempting more than 40 passes just three times as a rookie. "For our team to be successful," Koetter said, "we can't be throwing in the 50s and we can't be running in the 20s." Game scripts and the injury to Doug Martin have certainly played a role in the pass-heavy approach, but Koetter knows he needs to reel it in. After the Bengals had success running at the Broncos last week, the Bucs could try a similar gameplan on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:43 am

  • Brice Butler 'more confident' in offense
    Cowboys WR Brice Butler said he is "more confident" in the offense this season.

    Advice: The Cowboys traded for Butler after Dez Bryant broke his foot in the season opener last year. Butler did not do much while Bryant was out the first time, but he did manage eight catches for 134 yards over the final two weeks of the season. With Bryant likely to miss time again with a hairline fracture in his knee, Butler should get his chance in the starting lineup. He is an interesting sleeper against the 49ers.

Gruden said Doctson will "take it easy" again this week. Though tests have shown no further damage, Doctson is week to week.

He simply isn't getting it done, as the 49ers have been rocked in two-straight games.

Meanwhile, rookie Jacoby Brissett (thumb) replied "oh yeah" when asked if he's feeling in tip-top shape. If the Patriots were to play today, Brissett would likely be the one under center.

  • Marshall to take Seferian-Jenkins under wing
    Brandon Marshall is planning to mentor newly-acquired Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

    Advice: "I've been talking to Austin for a week now, even before this even happened," Marshall said. "When I saw what he was going through I reached out to him. We've been talking for a while. He is a great talent. When I heard we claimed him I was like 'This is God sent.' If he needs me, I am there. I've already connected him with the right people in the city if he needs them. Guys need second chances. When you make a mistake, it doesn’t mean you are a bad person. You need people to believe in you, and sometimes a fresh start is a good start." Marshall had numerous off-field run-ins before he got to New York and Chicago, but he's cleaned up his act considerably and has become a voice for mental-health awareness.

    Advice: Garoppolo almost played against Houston last week and has reportedly made steady progress in his recovery from a sprained AC joint. Meanwhile Brissett wasn't wearing any protective covering on his sprained thumb during the Patriots' media availability on Tuesday.

  • Jets claim Austin Seferian-Jenkins on waivers
    Jets claimed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins off waivers from the Bucs.

    Advice: Jets OC Chan Gailey has a reputation for "not using tight ends," but he also has a reputation for maximizing talent, which Seferian-Jenkins obviously has in spades despite all of his issues off the field. Seferian-Jenkins was popped for DUI last week, leading to his release from the Bucs. Picking him up is an extremely low-risk, high-upside maneuver by Jets GM Mike Maccagnan. Assuming Seferian-Jenkins is intent on continuing his football career, he should be able to earn a role in the offense by the middle of next month. ASJ still lacks re-draft value, but he remains a hold in Dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:17 pm

  • Jameis Winston throws for 405 yards in loss
    Jameis Winston completed 36-of-58 passes for 405 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Tampa Bay's 37-32, Week 3 loss to the Rams.

    Advice: Winston's attempts and yardage totals were goosed by two final drives where he got to pick apart prevent defenses. The Bucs ended up with a chance to tie the game, but Winston took a sack on 2nd-and-10 from the Rams' 15. The Bucs were cost by absolutely awful clock management late. Winston's pick was a pass that bounced off Charles Sims' hands. Winston also lost a fumble, one that was housed for a 77-yard touchdown by the Rams. It was a much better performance than last week's five-turnover debacle, but Winston has looked a step slow with his thought process the past two weeks. He'll be a bottom-barrel QB2 against the Broncos' league-best defense in Week 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:40 pm

  • Gabbert continues to struggle in defeat
    Blaine Gabbert completed 14-of-25 passes for 119 yards and an interception in the 49ers' Week 3 loss to Seattle.

    Advice: He added 22 yards on five scrambles. After the performance, Chip Kelly continued to insist that he never considered inserting Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers simply do not have a passing game with Gabbert under center, and they seem content to get their grills pushed in by opponents before piling up rushing stats late in blowout losses. In Week 4, Gabbert will be a low-end two-quarterback-league option against the Cowboys. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:21 pm

Tom Brady has one more game on suspension, then will return in Week 5. As of Thursday, however, Garoppolo was still in a "tremendous amount of pain" due to his throwing-arm injury.

  • Bucs give up on Seferian-Jenkins after arrest
    Buccaneers waived TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

    Advice: Cameron Brate and Luke Stocker will be the Bucs' tight ends the rest of the way. The 38th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Seferian-Jenkins was known to have drinking problems at the University of Washington and was popped for DUI on Friday morning, leading to his release. Some team will undoubtedly give the 24-year-old another chance, but Seferian-Jenkins will eventually face a suspension from the NFL. ASJ's loss is a blow to Jameis Winston's fantasy outlook. Seferian-Jenkins at least had potential, and the Bucs have gotten very little from their complementary pass catchers behind Mike Evans. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:08 am

It's his second DUI after being busted for one in 2013 while he was still in college.

  • Brissett does just enough as Pats rout Texans
    Jacoby Brissett completed 11-of-19 passes for 103 yards in New England's 27-0, Week 3 win over the Texans, adding eight carries for 48 yards and a touchdown.

    Advice: Making an emergency start on three days' rest, Brissett wasn't asked to do much, but set the tone with a 27-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Brissett briskly faked a handoff and was off to the races. He undressed Andre Hal on his way to the house. Brissett avoided mistakes, and had surprising command of the offense. More than once, he hurried the team to the line, a la Tom Brady. Teams can't win often with this kind of keep-it-hidden performance, but Brissett won't have to do much more in Week 4 against the Bills if Jimmy Garoppolo remains sidelined.

He was never going to be ready to go 96 hours later. Third-round rookie Jacoby Brissett will get the start, and is nothing more than a thoughts-and-prayers dart throw for DFS purposes.

    Advice: Garoppolo is reportedly still in "tremendous" pain and does not seem at all ready to play, but the Patriots will have him active in case of emergency. If something were to happen to starter Jacoby Brissett, it is still possible Julian Edelman would see snaps over Garoppolo. The Patriots are obviously hoping it does not come to that.

  • Josh Doctson (Achilles) limited Wednesday
    Josh Doctson (Achilles) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Doctson didn't look to suffer any setbacks in his return last week. Washington surprisingly featured him with three red-zone targets, but he failed to come down with any of them. Doctson should be fine for Week 3. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:25 pm

    Braxton Miller (hamstring) did not practice Monday.

    Advice: Miller exited Week 2 after catching one ball for three yards on three targets. He was set to undergo an MRI on Monday. Miller seems unlikely to play Thursday night against the Patriots. Jaelen Strong would be in line for more work. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:18 pm

  • Chip Kelly: I'm not yet considering QB change
    49ers coach Chip Kelly said Monday that he is not yet considering a quarterback change.

    Advice: He probably will eventually, but not quite yet. The 49ers are second to last in the NFL in both yards per play (4.4) and yards per pass attempt (5.8), ahead of only the Rams in those categories. That includes a 75-yard touchdown to Vance McDonald. "He's our starter. I've got a lot of confidence in Blaine," said Kelly. "We're not thinking or talking about not having Blaine in there. It's about everybody on offense playing better right now." Kelly's mind may change following a Week 3 trip to Seattle's CenturyLink Field. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:14 pm
