    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 a low-end FLEX against a Saints secondary that's allowed the third most pass yards in the league. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:32 pm

    Advice: Green-Beckham had four targets Week 2 after seeing two in the season opener. "We actually had DGB targeted a couple of times from a play call standpoint in the red zone, it's just that the play design went to the other side of the field," Pederson said. "We've increased his workload the last week and we want to continue to do that and move him around the more comfortable he gets with our system."

You're not in college anymore. You're not going to throw that ball through that guy.'"

  • 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

"If we can ride somebody, we’ll ride him, whether it be a receiver, quarterback or running back. It really doesn’t matter."

OC Rob Boras and LG Rodger Saffold have expressed confidence this week the team will be able to run against stacked boxes, but the easiest solution to the running woes is a passing game which averages more than 5.7 yards per attempt.

The Saints will hold another practice on Saturday ahead of Monday night's clash with the Falcons. Although beat writers have not expressed concern about Snead's availability, this remains a situation to closely monitor.

    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.

  • 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

    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.

    Advice: It's what held Snead out of Thursday's practice. At least right now, we don't have reason to believe Snead will miss Monday's game against the Saints, but we need more information.

    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

"And then we just have to be able to read and put ourselves in the best situation."

    Advice: "He's outstanding," said Fisher. "When the season is said and done, people are going to go, 'Wow.'" If only it were that simple. Gurley is being held hostage in an offense that is fundamentally broken. He's going to have a hard time mustering anything of fantasy significance with Case Keenum guiding the listless Rams.

    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.

    Advice: He caught his lone pass-game target for 19 yards.

  • Willie Snead scores Saints' only TD in Week 2
    Willie Snead snagged five catches for 54 yards and a touchdown on eight targets Sunday in the Saints' Week 2 loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Snead saved his best for last, splitting two defenders for a wide open 17-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Saints’ offense was uncharacteristically stagnant on Sunday but as usual, Snead still filled up the stat sheet. His current pace—113 receiving yards per game—is unsustainable but Snead’s chemistry with Drew Brees is undeniable. He’ll be an upside WR3 and possibly even a back-end WR2 next time out against the Falcons. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:37 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

  • Gurley thinks he was 'trying to do too much'
    Todd Gurley thinks he was "trying to do too much" and was not "patient enough" Week 1.

    Advice: "I’ve just got to stick to the game plan," Gurley said, "and just know that everything is going to be fine, and we’re going to break one." Gurley came out of the gates on fire as a rookie, but he struggled down the stretch last season and continued those struggles in Week 1. With either Case Keenum or a guy who could not beat out Case Keenum slated to be under center all season, Gurley's life is not going to get any easier. He is a borderline RB1 this week against Seattle. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:23 am

  • Saints TE Josh Hill (ankle) ruled out
    Saints TE Josh Hill (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 2.

    Advice: Hill is week to week with a high-ankle sprain. His absence increases Coby Fleener's snaps. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:21 pm

  • Rams remove Gurley from Week 2 injury report
    The Rams released an updated injury report Friday which no longer includes Todd Gurley.

    Advice: Gurley was laughably listed as questionable due to "rest" on the Rams' initial injury report. (Is there anything the Rams do these days that couldn't be preceded by the adjective "laughably?") Gurley will start versus Seattle. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:55 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

    Todd Gurley (rest) is listed as questionable for Week 2 against Seattle.

    Advice: Gurley practiced in full all week. He's not in any danger of missing Sunday's game. Gurley is Rotoworld's No. 8 running back for Week 2. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:49 pm

  • Mohamed Sanu not on injury report
    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

  • Saints TE Josh Hill misses practice all week
    Saints TE Josh Hill (ankle) missed practice all week and is not expected to play in Week 2 against the Giants.

    Advice: He has a high-ankle sprain. Hill isn't a fantasy factor by himself, but his absence ensures Coby Fleener will not be losing any playing time, and will also force the Saints to use more of Michael Thomas as a base three-receiver team, as opposed to one that could employ doses of two-tight end sets.

  • 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

  • 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

  • Aaron Dobson works out for Chargers
    Free agent WR Aaron Dobson worked out for the Chargers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Dobson's workout tour continues. He's already had auditions with the Eagles and 49ers this week. The Chargers are likely updating their emergency list should they suffer another injury after already losing Keenan Allen. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:12 am

  • 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.
