  • Kamar Aiken back at Ravens practice
    Kamar Aiken (thigh) returned to Ravens practice Thursday, getting in a "full" session.

    Advice: Aiken will be good to go for Week 4, but has fallen off the map in the Ravens' receiver corps. He has three catches for 19 yards. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:53 pm

  • Norman not expected to shadow Terrelle Pryor
    Redskins CB Josh Norman is not expected to shadow Terrelle Pryor on Sunday.

    Advice: Pryor is coming off a monster game, but has five inches on the 6-foot-0 Norman. He's also used all over the alignment. "We’re still working on our game plan now and (Pryor's) all over the place," coach Jay Gruden said. "Team defense is gonna have to take him away, somebody different every time possibly." Gruden lays out the situation pretty accurately. Pryor is an upside WR2. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:51 pm

  • Josh Gordon's Browns career considered over
    Both the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Akron Beacon-Journal believe Josh Gordon has played his last snap for the Browns.

    Advice: Per the Beacon-Journal's Nate Ulrich, Gordon is "not expected to receive another shot with this regime." Gordon has been given 10th and 11th chances by the Browns, and burned them every time. It's good to see Gordon trying to get his life in order by checking into rehab, but he's lucky to have lasted as long as he did in Cleveland. Gordon is still somehow only 25 years old, but he's dangerously close to forcing his way out of the league. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:02 pm

  • Terrelle Pryor: I'd love to stay if Hue stays
    Contract-year WR Terrelle Pryor says he'd love to re-sign with the Browns "if Hue Jackson's here."

    Advice: "I want to be here if Hue's going to be here for awhile, because I know this is a building process — and it's not really," Pryor said. "We're right the there. We're competing with everybody, we've just got to put teams away and I'd like to be where Hue's at." Coming off a monster performance where he was used like a 21st century Kordell Stewart, Pryor is locked in as the Browns' No. 1 receiver with Josh Gordon entering rehab. He's an upside WR2 for this weekend's matchup with the Redskins, and a fascinating case going forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:42 pm

  • Josh Gordon entering rehab, return unknown
    Suspended WR Josh Gordon has decided to enter an in-person rehab facility, and will not return to the Browns when first eligible in week 5.

    Advice: "After careful thought and deep consideration I’ve decided that I need to step away from pursuing my return to the Browns and my football career to enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility," Gordon said in a statement. "This is the right decision for me and one that I hope will enable me to gain full control of my life and continue on a path to reach my full potential as a person." It's unknown when Gordon will return to the team, but fantasy owners should proceed as if he won't play in 2016. There have been no indications Gordon is facing further suspension. An All-Pro in 2013, Gordon has made only five appearances since. His extended absence locks in Terrelle Pryor as the Browns' No. 1 receiver. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:33 pm

  • Alshon now listed with knee/hamstring issues
    Alshon Jeffery remained limited in Thursday's practice, getting listed with a hamstring issue in addition to his knee ailment.

    Advice: Jeffery seems to get hurt every other practice. The fact that he was still "limited" — as opposed to DNP — is good news, but we suppose his Week 4 status is back in question. A "limited" session Friday would have Jeffery on track to play against the Lions. Daily Slant: Even if Jeffery is able to play this week, Kevin White is looking like the superior $/pt option. White has seen a higher percentage of workload compared to Jeffery - White has 26.5% of the Chicago targets with Jeffery sitting at 19.6%. Jeffery has still been the more productive of the two, but with White being much cheaper across the DFS industry, he's a very interesting GPP play for a team that has the fewest rushing attempts per game through three weeks.

    Advice: Targets are not really the problem for Tate, who is on pace for 117 through three games. The problem is he is averaging just 7.2 yards per reception a season after gaining just nine yards per catch. Tate has the after-catch skills to break a couple big plays, but his usage limits his yardage upside. Marvin Jones will remain the clear No. 1 in Detroit. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:10 am

  • Cowboys fine Dez for missing MRI, meetings
    The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys have fined Dez Bryant for missing meetings and an MRI related to his knee injury.

    Advice: This explains why the Cowboys took so long to disclose the results of Bryant's MRI, which revealed a hairline fracture in his knee and will likely cost him multiple weeks. Specifically, the injury is a "hairline fracture of the tibial plateau on his right knee." It's unclear how much Bryant has been fined, but at least for now he seems to be in hot water with the organization. Hopefully, he will now focus on rehab and this is the last we hear of this.

    Advice: Garrett called it a "day by day, week by week" thing, so who knows what that means. If we were to simply make an educated guess, we'd say Bryant doesn't play Sunday. Hairline fractures in the fibula, which is at the base of the leg rather than the knee, often require multiple weeks of recovery.

Jones came into the game with calf and ankle ailments, and he wasn't in on every offensive snap, but didn't look to be any worse for the wear.

    Advice: Austin entered Week 3 with an inconceivable 63 yards on 22 targets, but finally had a productive afternoon. The Rams continued to scheme him the ball, and Austin chewed up some yardage in space. His score was a 43-yarder where he was somehow left on a 1-on-1 island with Chris Conte. The result was predictable. Austin nearly cost the Rams late in the fourth quarter, fielding a kickoff like a punt and setting his team up at the six-yard line.

    Advice: Hilton did battle against Chargers rising star CB Jason Verrett for much of the day, but got the better of him when all was said and done. Hilton made a slick grab deep down the sideline with Verrett draped on him in the third quarter, and then accounted for the game-winning 63-yard score late in the fourth quarter, running right by the defense down the middle.

  • DeSean Jackson goes 5/96/1 vs. Giants
    DeSean Jackson caught 5-of-8 targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 3 win over the Giants.

    Advice: D-Jax proved he was over his ankle injury by running by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for a 44-yard score. Jackson suffered what looked to be another ankle injury late in the first half, but escaped with only a tweak or bruise. It's always a bit of a rollercoaster with one of the league's top deep threats, but Jackson is the owner of a 14/238/1 line through three games. He's firmly back in the WR2 conversation. He has a juicy Week 4 matchup with the Browns. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:18 pm

  • Golden Tate quiet again against Packers
    Golden Tate caught 4-of-6 targets for 40 yards Week 3 against the Packers.

    Advice: He "added" -8 yards on one carry. Tate has 13 catches through three games, but he has yet to top 45 yards or find the end zone. At this point, he is not even an exciting play in PPR formats. Marvin Jones is the clear No. 1 in Detroit. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:08 pm

  • Michael Floyd held to 65 yards on 11 targets
    Michael Floyd caught 4-of-11 targets for 65 yards in the Cardinals' Week 3 loss to the Bills.

    Advice: The Cardinals tried numerous deep shots to Floyd early in the game, but connected on none of them and wound up trying to nickel and dime Buffalo's defense underneath, which didn't work. Floyd scored a touchdown in Week 2 and has gone over 60 yards in his other two games, but he has been a disappointment in fantasy early in the season. He'll get a tougher draw in Week 4 when the Cardinals take on a Rams defense that suffocates perimeter wideouts. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:00 pm

  • Marvin Jones drops 6/205/2 on Packers
    Marvin Jones caught 6-of-8 targets for 205 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions' Week 3 loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Jones easily found space down the right sideline all game. He got open against tough coverage for a 38-yard gain in the second quarter, found the soft spot in the Packers’ zone coverage for several chunk gains, stiff-armed a stumbling corner to the ground for a 73-yard touchdown late in the first half, and got the Lions within one score late in the fourth with a 35-yard touchdown. The Lions could not complete the comeback, but it was not for lack of effort from Jones. He blew past his previous career-high in yardage, and an even bigger day bounced off his hands on a diving attempt in the end zone. Jones has proven himself to be the clear No. 1 in Detroit. He will be a borderline WR1 next week against the Bears. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:57 pm

    Advice: Coach Dan Quinn reportedly told Glazer the Falcons expect Jones to play Monday night against the Saints, but they will test him again before the game. All signs have pointed to Jones being active this week, and this news just solidifies his status. He is an elite WR1. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:54 am

    DeSean Jackson (ankle) is active for Week 3 vs. the Giants.

    Advice: D-Jax was removed from the injury report, so it's not exactly a surprise. Jackson probably still isn't at 100 percent. He's a boom-or-bust WR3 against the Giants' resurgent defense. Inactive for the Redskins are QB Nate Sudfeld, WR Josh Doctson, CB Kendall Fuller, LB Martrell Spaight, DE Anthony Lanier, OG Arie Kouandjio and DE Kendall Reyes. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:31 am

  • Alshon Jeffery (knee) to play against Dallas
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Alshon Jeffery (knee) is expected to play Sunday night at Dallas.

    Advice: Fantasy owners got a mild scare when Jeffery was held out of Thursday's practice, but he returned to a limited session Friday and should be loaded into fantasy lineups. Jeffery's outlook is barely hindered by the Bears' "loss" of Jay Cutler, who was playing poorly. Brian Hoyer can do just as well as Cutler did. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:53 am

    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 Saturday, 2:32 pm

  • Shanahan plans to keep spreading ball around
    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.

  • Alshon (knee) practices, listed as questionable
    Alshon Jeffery (knee) returned to a limited practice on Friday and is questionable for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Coach John Fox said Jeffery is dealing with "knee soreness." Jeffery sat out Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday. It's possible the Bears were just managing his reps. True to form, the perpetually frustrating Jeffery is playing in the Sunday night game this week. We'd expect him to suit up, though fantasy owners would be wise to have a contingency plan in place.

    Advice: While he hasn't practiced each of the past two days, coach Dan Quinn has expressed optimism about Jones' status for Monday night. We'd love to see him practice on Saturday, but by all accounts he should be good to go for Week 3. Despite the minor injuries, Jones is maybe the top WR1 of the week. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:01 am

Hilton was added to the injury report on Thursday due to a limited practice. It sounds like he will be starting versus San Diego. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:54 am

  • T.Y. Hilton (knee) gets in limited practice
    T.Y. Hilton was added to the Colts' injury report Thursday, getting in a limited practice with a knee issue.

    Advice: A similar move caused alarm last week, but it turns out this is just going to be Hilton's ritual for the time being. Hilton was actually held out last Thursday before ultimately starting against the Broncos. He's a solid WR2 for a decent matchup with the Chargers. Jason Verrett is unlikely to follow Hilton into the slot. Daily Slant: Hilton is second in targets (23) and tied for fourth in red-zone targets (4) in the early going, which sets him up for a huge afternoon against the Chargers. He's going to avoid Verrett while he's lined up in the slot, and with Donte Moncrief out there is little reason to expect his target total to drop. This contest is one of the better targets of the week on the fast Indy track. Hilton is playable in any format. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:32 pm

  • Gruden: Friday practice will be key for D-Jax
    Redskins coach Jay Gruden says DeSean Jackson's (knee, ankle) Friday practice will be key in determining his Week 3 status.

    Advice: "With a sprinter like that, he needs to be full go," Gruden said, suggesting D-Jax's limited Thursday participation wasn't enough. Gruden said a few deep balls will be fed to Jackson on Friday to see if he's "full speed." Owners can keep Jackson penciled in as their WR3, but need to have an alternative ready.

  • Alshon Jeffery downgraded to 'DNP' Thursday
    Alshon Jeffery (knee) was downgraded to "DNP" in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Jeffery was "limited" on Wednesday. "Just something that we're monitoring," coach John Fox said, apparently seeking a competitive advantage. "We'll see what tomorrow brings." It's unknown when Jeffery suffered his latest "injury." No player in the league gets listed with more random practice ailments. It's possibly just gamesmanship on the part of the Bears. For now, we'd still consider Jeffery likely to suit up against the Cowboys, but it can't be considered a given. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Chicago is playing in the Sunday night game.

    Suspended WR Josh Gordon's warrant for a paternity test has been rescinded after he complied with a year-old court order to have his DNA examined.

    Advice: Per Gordon's attorneys, their client was "unaware" the request was ever made before Wednesday, at which national reports of Gordon's non-compliance surfaced. A hearing has been scheduled for November 8.

    Advice: It's not a big concern, but any time Jeffery gets listed with an injury it's notable. He missed so much time last season with nagging issues. The good news this time is that it's not a soft-tissue -- hamstring, calf, quad -- ailment that he seemed to battle all of 2015. Jeffery should be fine for Week 3 at the Cowboys, though his fantasy owners would surely appreciate more targets. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:33 am

    An NFL spokesman told the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot that suspended WR Josh Gordon remains on track to return Week 5 despite an arrest warrant being issued for him in Cleveland on Wednesday.

    Advice: The warrant has nothing to do with Gordon's suspension and is expected to be settled either in or out of court. It's still troubling that Gordon is even continuing to have off-field matters creep up in his life. Gordon can't be trusted in Dynasty leagues, and whatever we get from him is viewed as a bonus.

  • Jeffery posts 5-96 line in MNF loss to Eagles
    Alshon Jeffery caught 5-of-7 targets for 96 yards in the Bears' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

    Advice: Jeffery led the Bears in targets, but once again the ball was spread around like it was in the season opener. With Kevin White and Eddie Royal back healthy after missing much of last season, Jeffery doesn't appear to have a dominant market share on the targets in Chicago. He still was easily the best offensive player on the field for the Bears, setting up their lone offensive touchdown with a 49-yard catch on a double-move past rookie CB Jalen Mills. He also drew a DPI penalty in the end zone two plays later. Jeffery remains a WR1, but it would be nice to see him back in the 10-12 targets range. He's seen just 13 through two games. Jeffery gets a decent matchup on the road against the Cowboys in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:49 pm

Decker played 72-of-77 snaps in Thursday night's win over Buffalo and led the team with 126 receiving yards. As long as he makes it back to practice by the end of the week, Decker should be fine for Sunday's Week 3 matchup against Kansas City. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 11:31 am
