  • Damien Williams could be odd man out
    Damien Williams could be a healthy scratch this week.

    Advice: Jay Ajayi is expected to start and get the majority of Arian Foster’s snaps. Miami should also keep Kenyan Drake involved after scoring a touchdown last week. The Dolphins will go with either Isaiah Pead or Williams as their No. 3 back. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:20 pm

  • Kyle Rudolph removed from injury report
    Kyle Rudolph (groin) has been removed from the injury report.

    Advice: Rudolph should see an expanded role in the red-zone with Adrian Peterson out. He's a low-end TE1 against a Panthers secondary that gave up a 75-yard touchdown to Vance McDonald last week. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:32 pm

    Mohamed Sanu (ankle) has been removed from the injury report.

    Advice: The Falcons held Sanu back early in the week, but he practiced in full Saturday. His status was never in doubt. Sanu is an intriguing WR3/flex against a Saints secondary that's allowed the third most pass yards in the league. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:32 pm

You're not in college anymore. You're not going to throw that ball through that guy.'" Siemian has three interceptions through two games, but Kubiak believes he is going to become more comfortable with the speed of the NFL each game.

  • Isaiah Crowell should keep lead-back job
    ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon believes Isaiah Crowell will continue to be the lead back moving forward.

    Advice: There was some concern Duke Johnson would take over as the lead back before the season, but Crowell has impressed with 195 yards and two scores through two weeks. Those numbers do not tell the whole story, however. Crowell earned 40 yards on three meaningless draws at the end of a loss Week 1, and he had an 85-yard touchdown last week. He has averaged just 2.7 yards on his other 26 carries. With the offense sure to nose dive with Cody Kessler under center, Crowell is a great sell high. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:42 am

    Jets coach Todd Bowles said he is not concerned about Matt Forte's early-season workload.

    Advice: Forte is on pace for 472 touches, but neither OC Chan Gailey nor Bowles seems to care. "I like to see us successful," Bowles said. "If we can ride somebody, we’ll ride him, whether it be a receiver, quarterback or running back. It really doesn’t matter." Bilal Powell has been an afterthought this season, but he is a hold with the Jets seemingly intent on running the 30-year-old Forte into the ground. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:06 am

    Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan plans to keep spreading the ball around in the passing game.

    Advice: "You don’t have to force it into tough looks. You can go where the coverage tells you," Shanahan said. "You might not have the same numbers for [Julio Jones] and stuff, but I think the result ends up improving the offense." Julio has nine catches for 172 yards and two scores already this year, but he is on pace for just 104 targets after seeing 203 last season. That pace will certainly pick up, but it seems clear he is not going to be the target monster he was the last two years. Even so, he will be an elite WR1 if he suits up Monday night.

  • Wheaton will share snaps with Coates, DHB
    PennLive's Jacob Klinger reports Markus Wheaton (shoulder) will rotate with Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey opposite Antonio Brown.

    Advice: Wheaton was slated to be the clear No. 2 to open the season, but a sprained right shoulder kept him out the first two weeks. Now he is returning to a timeshare. "I mean coming in I kind of wanted to take over that role, but things happen," Wheaton said. "Things happen and all I can do is get better now and keep continuing to grow." Splitting snaps, Wheaton is not worth using even in a decent matchup this week, but he could establish himself as the clear starter with a strong showing. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:22 am

    The San Francisco defense has forced six turnovers through two weeks of the 2016 season.

    Advice: The 49ers saw two drastically different results in the opening weeks of the season, but their defense has been successful in taking the ball away from opponents. "We want our guys to play fearless," DC Jim O’Neil said. "We don’t want our guys to play scared." San Francisco will need to win the turnover battle in Week 3 to have a shot at a victory in Seattle, where the 49ers D/ST will not be a recommended fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:54 am

  • Markus Wheaton (shoulder) will suit up Week 3
    Markus Wheaton (shoulder) was not listed on the final injury report for Week 3 against the Eagles.

    Advice: Wheaton said his absence last week was because of a lack of game preparation rather than his troublesome shoulder, and he is ready after another full week of practice. Sammie Coates was heavily involved as a deep threat against the Bengals, but Wheaton should return to the starting role opposite Antonio Brown. He is a deep league option in a decent matchup against the Eagles. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:49 pm

  • Delanie Walker doesn't practice, questionable
    Delanie Walker (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Raiders after missing Friday's practice.

    Advice: Walker missed Wednesday's session, was limited on Thursday, and was held out on Friday, which constitutes a downgrade. Even if Walker is indeed active versus Oakland, he will be tough to trust as a surefire fantasy TE1. The Titans are very thin in the pass-catcher corps, which is concerning for Marcus Mariota. Tajae Sharpe will likely have to do the heaviest lifting. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:12 am

  • 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 Yesterday, 11:08 am

  • Virgil Green (calf) expected to miss Week 3
    Virgil Green (calf) missed another practice on Friday and is not expected to play against the Bengals.

    Advice: He didn't practice at all this week. Calf injuries tend to linger, so Green is potentially staring at a multi-week absence and can be dropped in 12-team leagues. Look for Jeff Heuerman and blocker John Phillips to share snaps at Cincinnati. Neither Heuerman nor Phillips is streamer worthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:13 am

    Advice: While he hasn't practiced each of the past two days, coach Dan Quinn has expressed optimism about Jones' status for Monday night.

  • Delanie Walker listed questionable for Week 3
    Delanie Walker (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Raiders.

    Advice: Walker blames the hamstring "tweak" on Lions defenders holding him last week. He apparently stretched with the team at the start of Friday's practice, but didn't do much else. We're looking at a possible game-time call. While we still anticipate Walker playing, his absence would likely translate to a few more targets for Tajae Sharpe on the off chance Walker can't go.

  • Delanie Walker blames injury on holding
    Delanie Walker says he "tweaked" his hamstring because Lions defenders were holding him in last Sunday's win over Detroit.

    Advice: "I did it in the game. They were holding a lot," he said. "Their defense was holding a lot, and it made me tweak my hamstring a little bit." This sounds humorous, but in Walker's defense the Lions did commit an incredible 17 penalties in Week 2. Walker returned to a limited practice on Thursday and remains on track to play in Week 3 against the Raiders, where he'll be an elite TE1. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:42 am

  • Seferian-Jenkins popped for DUI on Friday AM
    Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested and charged with DUI Friday morning.

    Advice: Seferian-Jenkins was stopped by Florida Highway Patrol around 4 AM and booked at the Orient Road Jail around 6 AM. It's his second DUI after being busted for one in 2013 while he was still in college. ASJ had an offseason full of letdowns, from being kicked out of practice in the spring to losing his starting job to Cameron Brate. This could be the final straw for him in Tampa Bay.

    Jets OC Chan Gailey believes it's too early to start monitoring Matt Forte's workload.

    Advice: Forte has gotten the ball 59 times through two games, but Gailey evidently hasn't seen any sign of early-season wear and tear. It's inevitable that Forte's workloads will be curtailed, especially with a competent backup in Bilal Powell, but Week 3 won't be it. Forte is playing on 10 days' rest after getting the ball 32 times against the Bills in Week 2. Forte is locked in as a high-end RB1 while he dominates touches. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:13 am

    Trevor Siemian completed 22-of-33 passes for 266 yards with one interception and also rushed once for seven yards Sunday in the Broncos' Week 2 win over the Colts.

    Advice: Aside from a careless interception, Siemian had his way with Indy in the first half, carving up the Colts’ injury-plagued secondary for 215 yards on 17-of-25 passing. Denver’s defense scored touchdowns on interception and fumble returns, keeping Siemian off the field for much of the second half. Siemian still had trouble finishing drives but at least he made fewer mistakes than he did in last week’s opener. He won’t be a recommended streaming option against the Bengals in Week 3.

  • Justin Hardy catches 8-yard TD in Week 2
    Justin Hardy caught 1-of-3 targets for an eight-yard touchdown in the Falcons' Week 2 win over the Raiders.

    Advice: Hardy's touchdown was one of the luckiest ones you'll ever see, as Matt Ryan's pass ricocheted off of Tevin Coleman with a defender all over him and into the waiting arms of Hardy. The Falcons' lightly-used slot receiver, Hardy has no fantasy value and is not a must-hold in Dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:27 pm

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins has two-catch day
    Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 2-of-2 targets for 14 yards in the Bucs' Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: ASJ remains mired in a timeshare with Cameron Brate. He has three targets through two games. There are better ways to use a roster spot in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:05 pm

  • Mohamed Sanu has slow Week 2 game
    Mohamed Sanu caught 3-of-5 targets for 19 yards in the Falcons' Week 2 win over the Raiders.

    Advice: Sanu's Week 1 was a bit of a tease because 59 of his 80 yards came on a blown coverage by the Bucs. It's notable that Julio Jones could not finish Sunday's game after apparently re-tweaking his troublesome ankle. Normally a WR4, Sanu would become a legitimate WR2 if Jones missed Week 3 at New Orleans. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:47 pm

  • Crowell runs for 133 yards, TD in Week 2 loss
    Isaiah Crowell rushed for 133 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in the Browns' 25-20, Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: Crowell kicked off the Browns' second possession with an 85-yard touchdown run. He ran untouched right through the left side of the line and up the middle of the field into the end zone. On his other 17 carries, Crowell managed 48 yards (2.82 YPC). He also caught his lone target for 15 yards. After Josh McCown injured his left shoulder late in the first quarter, the Browns didn't hide the fact they were going to try and run the ball with Crowell. It rarely worked, and the Browns blew a 20-point lead. Crowell will be an RB2 next week at the Dolphins. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:43 pm

  • Delanie Walker comes alive as TEN upsets DET
    Delanie Walker caught 6-of-6 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 2 upset of the Lions.

    Advice: The Titans promised Walker would be more involved and he was, dusting the Detroit defense in the middle of the field and turning in a standout fantasy performance capped by a 30-yard touchdown throw from Marcus Mariota. The Titans proactively fed Walker on tight end screens. It remains slightly concerning that Walker has only 11 targets through two games, but he will continue to be a strong TE1 option in Week 3 against the Raiders. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:17 pm

  • Report: Markus Wheaton inactive for Week 2
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Markus Wheaton (shoulder) will be inactive Week 2 against the Bengals.

    Advice: This is not surprising after Wheaton was downgraded to limited in Friday's practice after being full earlier in the week. Rapoport seemed to suggest he will be ready to go next week. With Wheaton out, Sammie Coates will see more snaps, but Eli Rogers should see the second-most targets behind Antonio Brown. Jesse James will also be heavily involved. Pittsburgh also declared QB Zach Mettenberger, CB Senquez Golson, FB Roosevelt Nix, C Cody Wallace, LB Steven Johnson, and DE L.T. Walton inactive for Week 2. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:26 am

  • Markus Wheaton downgraded to limited Friday
    Markus Wheaton (shoulder, questionable) was limited in Friday's practice.

    Advice: Wheaton got in full sessions Wednesday and Thursday, so this represents a downgrade. Officially listed as questionable, it remains likely Wheaton plays, but his status can no longer be taken for granted. He will be at best a WR4 if active. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:42 pm

  • Hue Jackson promises to feed Isaiah Crowell
    Browns coach Hue Jackson indicated Friday he is intent on feeding Isaiah Crowell in Week 2 against the Ravens.

    Advice: It sounds like the Browns want to attack Baltimore with a ground-and-pound approach. "We just have to hand it to him enough times," Jackson said. "If you have a runner you believe in, you have to give him the ball. He has to get a feel for the game and be able to play within the structure of what you are trying to accomplish with the offensive line. That’s why I said I take responsibility for that. I think (Crowell) is off to a good start. We just have to give him opportunities to go show his ability." Crowell posted a 12-62-1 rushing line in Week 1 against the Eagles, but got 40 of the yards on the game's final three plays. He'll be a low-end flex option for Week 2. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:51 pm

  • Julio (ankle) not on injury report for Week 2
    Julio Jones (ankle) returned to a full practice on Friday.

    Advice: So did Mohamed Sanu (ankle). Neither of them are on the injury report for Week 2. Julio has a great matchup waiting against an Oakland secondary that yielded more than 400 passing yards last week. Julio is a top-shelf WR1. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:57 am

    Mohamed Sanu is not on the Falcons' Week 2 injury report.

    Advice: Sanu was limited early in the week after tweaking his ankle against the Bucs, but he practiced fully on Friday and will start Sunday against the Raiders. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:55 am

  • Matt Forte on pace for 472 touches this year
    Matt Forte is on pace for 472 touches this season, and coach Todd Bowles called him a "workhorse."

    Advice: Through two games, Forte has 59 touches and is coming off a three-touchdown night in Thursday's win over the Bills. "I’m going out there to play," Forte said. "As long as we keep winning, I don’t care if I have a 1,000 touches." In his age-31 season, we didn't expect Forte to come out and be this much of "the guy" after signing a three-year, $12 million deal. Bilal Powell figured to have a role, but he's been stuck on the bench, playing just 34-of-148 snaps through two games. If -- big "if" -- Forte can stay healthy, he's a lock to finish as an RB1 at this rate. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:41 am

  • Matt Forte drops three TDs on hapless Bills D
    Matt Forte rushed 30 times for 100 yards and three touchdowns in New York's 37-31, Week 2 win over the Bills.

    Advice: He caught 2-of-3 targets for nine additional yards. Forte ran much better than his 3.3 YPC suggests, making slick cuts and looking as smooth as ever at age 30. He got off to a slow start, but was soon wearing down a vastly-underperforming defense. Forte has a truly absurd 59 touches through his first two games as a Jet, usage that is likely to keep up for Week 3 since he'll be on 10 days rest against the Chiefs. Forte has quickly established himself as an every-week RB1 in his new home, and laid waste to committee concerns with Bilal Powell. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:40 pm

  • Markus Wheaton practicing in full for Week 2
    Markus Wheaton (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 2.

    Advice: Barring a setback, Wheaton will be good to go against the Bengals after missing the opener. Wheaton is ticketed for a big role this season, but he can't yet be trusted as more than a WR4. Jesse James and Eli Rogers are looking like real competition for targets behind Antonio Brown. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:55 pm

  • Mohamed Sanu (ankle) limited on Thursday
    Mohamed Sanu (ankle) will be limited at Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Coach Dan Quinn is optimistic Sanu will return to a full practice on Friday. He'll be fine for Sunday's meeting with Oakland. Sanu led Atlanta with 80 receiving yards in last week's opener and should be in the WR3/flex mix for Week 2. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:12 am

  • Kyle Rudolph practicing through knee injury
    Kyle Rudolph (knee) is practicing in full for Week 2.

    Advice: Rudolph is coming off a solid Week 1, catching 4-of-8 targets for 65 yards. He's a touchdown-dependent TE2 for Sunday night's matchup with the Packers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:50 pm

  • Mohamed Sanu limited on Wednesday
    Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Sanu twisted his ankle in the Week 1 loss to the Bucs, but played through it and should be ready to roll against the Raiders after a 5-80-1 line in the opener. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:52 am

  • Mularkey admits Walker should have seen more
    Coach Mike Mularkey admitted the offense should have done a better job getting Delanie Walker more involved early in the Week 1 loss to the Vikings.

    Advice: His five targets were fewer than Andre Johnson and the same amount as Harry Douglas. That should never happen in 2016 with Johnson at his advanced age and Douglas as ineffective as they come. Look for the Titans to make better use of Walker this week against the Lions, who gave up three combined touchdowns to Colts TEs Dwayne Allen (1) and Jack Doyle (2) in the opener.
