  • CB Claiborne limiting damage
    Dallas CB Morris Claiborne leads NFL cornerbacks in lowest completion percentage when targeted.

    Advice: In 24 targets, Claiborne has allowed nine catches for 90 yards and a 37.5 completion percentage from opposing quarterbacks. While Claiborne has held his own, the Dallas pass defense still ranks 23rd among NFL defenses through three weeks and has given up consecutive 300+ passing yard performances. The Cowboys D/ST will be a middling Week 4 fantasy option on the road at San Francisco. Rotoworld.com Just now

  • Nate Orchard (ankle) lands on injured reserve
    Browns placed OLB Nate Orchard on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

    Advice: Cam Johnson was signed off Arizona's practice squad in a corresponding move. Orchard suffered a high-ankle sprain last week against the Dolphins. The nature of the injury suggests he could be designated for return. Corey Lemonier should see more snaps with Orchard sidelined, but he was added to the injury report Saturday as doubtful for personal reasons. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:51 am

    Advice: An undrafted rookie out of Temple, Anderson is an explosive athlete, but he was considered a developmental prospect in the pre-draft process. Even if he is the "No. 3," the Jets will likely lean heavily on Brandon Marshall and Quincy Enunwa with Decker out. Anderson is just a Dynasty asset right now. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:24 am

    Dolphins coach Adam Gase said he wants to "narrow" the running back rotation.

    Advice: It might not matter if Arian Foster (groin) is able to make it back Week 5, but he is questionable at best. That would leave Miami with the same dreadful four-man committee which has managed 159 yards the last two weeks. Jay Ajayi has played the best of the group, and he should get more work if Gase decides to focus on one back. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:14 am

  • Bobby Rainey should have role with Vereen out
    Giants RB Bobby Rainey should have a role with Shane Vereen (triceps, injured reserve) sidelined.

    Advice: Orleans Darkwa is expected to see the biggest spike in playing time with Vereen out and could start Monday night if Rashad Jennings (thumb, questionable) is forced to sit, but Rainey will have a passing-game role even when Darkwa and Jennings are healthy. Rainey caught 33 passes for 315 yards and a touchdown with the Bucs in 2014, and he is a solid add in deeper PPR formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:00 am

  • Terrance West could become starter this week
    ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley said it "wouldn't be surprising" if Terrance West took over as the starter this week.

    Advice: Coach John Harbaugh talked about making changes in the backfield, and swapping out Justin Forsett for West is the most logical option. Forsett has just 98 yards on 31 carries this season with zero touchdowns. West is not lighting up the scoreboard either (33-for-119), but he has looked like a much better runner. Rookie Kenneth Dixon (knee) should also get a shot once he returns from injury. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:52 am

  • Kenneth Dixon will be eased back into action
    ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley expects rookie RB Kenneth Dixon (knee, doubtful) to be "eased back into the mix."

    Advice: Dixon will not play this week, and he will likely be limited even if he returns against Washington Week 5. Once healthy, Dixon should be in something of a timeshare with Terrance West and perhaps Justin Forsett. Dixon is a good bench stash in deeper formats, but he will likely spend most if not all of the season in a committee. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:23 am

    ESPN Eagles reporter Tim McManus said fifth-round RB Wendell Smallwood should see "plenty of opportunities" this season.

    Advice: McManus cautions Ryan Mathews will still be the lead back when healthy, but he correctly points out Mathews has struggled to stay on the field throughout his career. "There should be plenty of opportunities for Smallwood over the course of the season," McManus said, "and those opportunities will likely grow if he continues to produce like he did against the Steelers." Smallwood had 79 yards and a touchdown against Pittsburgh. He is a great speculative add in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:17 am

    Advice: "He’s a quicker guy, and he’ll come in with some energy," Robiskie said. "Hopefully he’s going to give us a boost — make a play, give us some help and help generate a fast start." Wright managed just 36 catches in 10 games last year and missed most of camp and the early part of the season with a hamstring injury. That said, it is not like the Titans have many better options.

    Markus Wheaton is still dealing with "discomfort" in his shoulder.

    Advice: An AC sprain in Wheaton's shoulder cost him the first two weeks. He returned in Week 3, dropped three passes, and got benched before returning when Eli Rogers (turf toe) left the game. The Steelers can't count on Wheaton to make meaningful contributions at this point. He's droppable in 14-team leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:00 am

    Advice: Williams is the Browns' slot corner and was expected to cover Jamison Crowder most of the day Sunday. With Williams unlikely to suit up, look for undrafted rookie Tracy Howard or FS Jordan Poyer to cover the slot. Whoever it is, Crowder has a massive leg up. He's a locked-in WR3 with upside.

    Advice: It sounds like he's on the right track to play Sunday against the Bills. Garoppolo's return would be a big boost to Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman in the passing game, though LeGarrette Blount would still be the focal point on offense. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:31 am

    Jay Ajayi rushed six times for 33 yards in the Dolphins' Week 4 loss to the Bengals, adding two catches for 13 additional yards.

    Advice: Ajayi and Kenyan Drake were "benched" for Damien Williams, but Ajayi ended up easily leading the backfield in touches. He was arguably the Dolphins' most effective player this evening, reeling off three 11-yard gains. Ajayi should have gotten the ball more, and likely will against the Titans in Week 5 as the Dolphins desperately try to get something going on the ground. Ajayi will still barely be on the RB3 radar for that one. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:52 pm

  • Jay Ajayi, Drake benched for Damien Williams
    The Dolphins have announced Damien Williams as their Week 4 starter at running back.

    Advice: Jay Ajayi was the closest thing the Dolphins had to a nominal "starter" in Arian Foster's absence, but the Dolphins are going to give Williams a whirl after Ajayi and Drake were ineffective in Week 3. Isaiah Pead should also be involved. Despite the "starter" tag, Williams is best avoided in fantasy leagues. The same goes for Ajayi, Pead and Drake. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:06 pm

Brissett seems further along in his recovery. It should be considered far from a certainly Garoppolo suits up.

    Advice: RapSheet riled up the masses with a tweet earlier Wednesday morning that Dixon was returning to practice Wednesday, but he didn't do much of anything besides working out by himself on a side field. Dixon is still recovering from a sprained MCL. Coach John Harbaugh expressed frustration with the running game Wednesday, so Dixon could be given a decent workload as soon as he hits the field.

  • Pederson dumps praise on Wendell Smallwood
    Coach Doug Pederson had nothing but praise for rookie RB Wendell Smallwood's performance following the Week 3 win over the Steelers.

    Advice: "He's the same type of runner that we felt he was coming out of college and what we saw in preseason," said Pederson. "He's a big, powerful guy. He's a downhill guy. He's a one-cut runner. He did a great job for us." At the link below, Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski broke down a bunch of Smallwood's runs from the win, and his burst through the hole was incredible. He also showed great awareness to stay in bounds on a 3rd-and-7 run late in the fourth quarter to keep the clock moving. "To get the first down and stay in bounds as a rookie is tremendous," said Pederson. Smallwood missed much of training camp with a quad injury, but he looks poised to take on a big role in this backfield with Ryan Mathews again banged up and struggling to make plays.

    Kendall Wright (hamstring) is expected to practice fully this week and make his season debut Sunday against the Texans.

    Advice: Wright has been out since early August with the strained hamstring. He returned to limited practices two weeks ago, but now should have "no limitations." The Titans could really use Wright to help jumpstart their No. 24 passing offense. Rookie Tajae Sharpe has taken a step back on the outside, and veterans Harry Douglas and Andre Johnson are providing nothing.

  • Smallwood unleashed in win over Pittsburgh
    Wendell Smallwood racked up 79 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries Sunday in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Steelers.

    Advice: The Eagles’ No. 4 running back (according to their most recent depth chart) announced his presence with a big second half, gashing the Steelers for 64 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries after the intermission. Smallwood saw the vast majority of Philadelphia’s rushing work with Ryan Mathews sidelined for most of the game. It’s notable that Smallwood also got first dibs on goal-line carries with Darren Sproles limited to a receiving role and Kenjon Barner handling change-of-pace work. Obviously Philadelphia’s huge lead afforded Smallwood a longer leash but it will be interesting to see how the backfield duties shake out after the Eagles come off their bye week.

He proceeded to drop his next two targets. Wheaton missed the first two games of the season with a shoulder injury and it looked like he forgot how to play football during his time off.

    Advice: Wheaton was "full" last Wednesday and Thursday before sitting out, but this week should be different. Wheaton might be eased in, but remains Ben Roethlisberger's No. 2 weapon on paper. He's a WR5 for Week 3 who could be much higher next week. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:21 pm

  • Kendall Wright gets in another limited day
    Kendall Wright (hamstring) remained "limited" on Thursday.

    Advice: It looks like the Titans might be easing Wright back in with an eye toward a Week 4 return. Even were Wright to suit up this week, he'd be off the radar in every format. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:10 pm

  • Wheaton gets in a full practice Wednesday
    Markus Wheaton (shoulder) practiced in full Wednesday.

    Advice: He reportedly said after practice he is planning to play this week, but he was a full participant Wednesday and Thursday last week before being held out against the Bengals. Wheaton is certainly trending towards active, but his status cannot be taken for granted. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:25 am

  • Kendall Wright practices Wednesday
    Kendall Wright (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.

    Advice: "It felt good to be out there,’’ Wright said. "Today was a start. Feel like I'm getting close." Wright has missed the last two weeks, but looks on track to return against Oakland. He won't be higher than the No. 4 pass-game option. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:55 pm

  • Orlando Scandrick says he's not fully healthy
    Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstrings) says he's not fully healthy.

    Advice: "I’m just not myself," said Scandrick. "I haven’t played in a year, and after two games, I haven’t been able to play fully. I’m extremely sore." Scandrick's ACL has held up, but his hamstrings could keep him out against Chicago. He's allowed touchdowns in consecutive weeks despite limited playing time. Even if active, Scandrick should lose snaps to Anthony Brown. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:51 pm

  • Fins could use full-blown RBBC without Foster
    Coach Adam Gase suggested the Dolphins could use a full-blown running back by committee with Arian Foster (groin) likely out Week 3 against the Browns.

    Advice: Gase added that practice this week will determine who gets the start. With Foster expected to sit, the Dolphins are left with Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake, Damien Williams, and Isaiah Pead. Gase went on to talk about each back's strengths on Wednesday. It's conceivable it could be a straight-up rotational backfield and hot-hand approach. Through two games, the Dolphins have the third-fewest rushing attempts as a team. This is simply a situation to avoid. Ryan Tannehill and the receivers are far more attractive fantasy options Week 3.
