  • Marquise Goodwin to be Bills' featured receiver
    With Sammy Watkins (foot) out, Marquise Goodwin is expected to be the Bills' featured receiver against the Cardinals in Week 3.

    Advice: Good luck with that. Goodwin torched washed-up Darrelle Revis for an 84-yard touchdown in Week 2 but was useless otherwise, connecting on just one-of-four targets for 28 yards the rest of the night. Though Goodwin is set up for an increased workload with Watkins out and Charles Clay (knee) banged up, he has a nightmare matchup waiting against Arizona's elite secondary. It's possible he'll draw coverage from All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson. Goodwin won't be a recommended fantasy play in Week 3. Rotoworld.com 59 minutes ago

  • Schefter: Brandon Marshall to have snap count
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Brandon Marshall (knee/foot) is expected to play at Kansas City, but he will be on a snap count.

    Advice: Schefter also tweeted something about the weather in Kansas City being "bad," although Weather.com has Arrowhead experiencing a 0-15 percent chance of rain with mild winds (8-10 MPH) and temperatures in the 70s during Sunday's game. We're not concerned about the weather at all. The snap-count concern should downgrade Marshall from a WR1 to a WR2/3, but snap counts do have a tendency to be thrown to the wind if a player starts hot. Schefter reported Marshall's knee "felt much better" on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:54 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 Today, 4:53 am

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Sammy Watkins (foot) will not play Sunday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Watkins tweeted something Saturday night suggesting he was planning on playing, but it sounds like he failed to receive medical clearance. Schefter reports the Bills will turn to one-trick speedster Marquise Goodwin opposite Robert Woods. Losing Watkins is a huge downgrade to Tyrod Taylor's outlook in an already-tough matchup. Watkins can only be considered week to week. Battling a recurring foot injury, he'll likely be week to week for the rest of the year. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:51 am

  • Tweet from Watkins indicates he plans to play
    A Saturday night tweet from Sammy Watkins (foot, questionable) indicated he plans to play Sunday against Arizona.

    Advice: The tweet -- linked below -- reads, "Ready to go out there and compete at the highest level." CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported earlier in the day the Bills were "still holding out some hope" Watkins would give it a go against the Cardinals, despite Rex Ryan's Friday statement that chances were "not real good" Watkins would be able to play. If Watkins does play, he'll be a low-floor WR3 option against Patrick Peterson. The Bills' offense matches up poorly with the Cardinals' defense, which can shut down No. 1 receivers and the running game. Buffalo doesn't have much beyond that. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:58 pm

    Advice: It's not much of an update. Watkins will go through pre-game warmups, but all signs continue to point to him sitting out. Marquise Goodwin will start in base sets if Watkins doesn't play, with Charles Clay the favorite to lead Buffalo in targets. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:21 pm

"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 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.

    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

    Willie Snead (undisclosed) was absent from the portion of Saints practice open to the media on Thursday.

    Advice: It's the Saints' first practice of the week, as they're playing in the Monday night game. It's possible Snead isn't injured and is away from the team on personal business, but that's not the most-likely scenario. It's also not the "veteran's day" portion of the season for a 23 year old. Snead's status will be updated soon. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:07 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.

    Julio Jones (calf) didn't practice on Thursday.

    Advice: He was listed as a DNP despite attending the team's walkthrough. The Falcons play on Monday night this week so it's not time to panic yet. He's dealing with a bruised calf. Assuming he suits up and plays his usual snaps, Jones will be an elite play against the Saints' swiss cheese secondary. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:15 am

    Bills coach Rex Ryan said there is "some concern" Sammy Watkins (foot) will miss Week 3 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Watkins didn't practice for the second day in a row. His foot injury doesn't seem to be getting any better and at this point, sitting out might be the best thing for him. Even if he plays, Watkins has a tough matchup against ace corner Patrick Peterson. Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin would be the featured receivers if Watkins can't get the green light.

He is expected to be limited on Thursday, but the injury does not look like it will affect his availability for Monday night's clash with the Saints. Jones will be an elite WR1 in that game.

    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.

    Advice: Both of his grabs came on the opening possession.

    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.

    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.

    Advice: Fitz was the Cardinals' most-targeted receiver for the second time in two 2016 games, and now has three touchdowns. He was mere feet away from a fourth, but his knee hit down as he extended the ball for the goal line. Fitz isn't winning based on volume alone, and is dominating his 1-on-1 matchups. He looks like a future Hall-of-Famer still in his prime. He's rendered John Brown a non-factor and Michael Floyd a clear No. 2.

    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.

  • Doctson sees 3 end-zone targets in Week 2
    Josh Doctson caught 1-of-5 targets for 57 yards in the Redskins' Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

    Advice: The stat line doesn't stand out, but Doctson was targeted three times in the end zone as the Redskins attempted to feature him in scoring position. He is still in something of a rotation with Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garcon behind No. 1 wideout DeSean Jackson. Doctson should be owned in 14- and 16-team fantasy leagues.

  • DeVante Parker goes 8-106 in 2016 unveiling
    DeVante Parker caught 8-of-12 targets for 106 yards in Miami's Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: On the field from Miami's opening drive, Parker benefitted from pass-happy comeback mode, but also made a number of contested catches against tight coverage. He wasn't just catching wide-open bunnies. Ryan Tannehill was throwing the ball up and letting his sophomore wideout go and get it. It was an extremely encouraging performance. Parker will be on the WR3/4 borderline for Week 3, but offer a ton of upside against the Browns' ragged defense. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:43 pm

  • DeVante Parker officially active for Week 2
    Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is active for Week 2 against the Patriots.

    Advice: Parker could be on a snap count as he returns from his latest hamstring injury, but will be a big-play threat in New England. He's an upside, if high-risk, WR4. He probably won't be worth the investment in daily leagues. Inactive for the Dolphins are WR Justin Hunter, C Mike Pouncey, OG Dallas Thomas, RB Damien Williams, RB Isaiah Pead, ILB Donald Butler and DB Jordan Lucas. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 8:37 am

  • 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 Sep 18, 8:26 am

  • DeVante Parker expected to suit up Sunday
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports DeVante Parker (hamstring, questionable) will play Week 2 against the Patriots.

    Advice: Parker had been trending towards active all week. After missing much of camp and Week 1 with a hamstring issue, it is likely the sophomore is eased back into action. He is also possibly behind Kenny Stills in the pecking order. With all of that working against him, it is tough to trust Parker as anything more than a WR4 flier. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 5:17 am

  • DeVante Parker thinks he is 'even better'
    DeVante Parker (hamstring, questionable) thinks he is "even better" this season.

    Advice: "I know I'm better even though I haven't been able to play a lot," Parker said. "I know I'm better this year than last season. I know I can do a lot better than last season." The sophomore sat out Week 1, but he should get a shot to show he is "better" this week against the Patriots despite a questionable tag. He is no more than a WR4. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 8:17 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 Sep 16, 4:42 pm

  • Chris Hogan questionable after Fri. downgrade
    Chris Hogan (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 2 after his practice participation was downgraded to "limited" on Friday.

    Advice: He practiced fully on Wednesday and Thursday. The Patriots don't give out injury information beyond their injury report, so we have no clue whether Hogan suffered some sort of setback. He was limited throughout the offseason coming off of shoulder surgery. The Patriots play the Dolphins at 1PM ET on Sunday, so we will know whether Hogan is active before all the games start.

    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 Sep 16, 11:57 am

  • Josh Docton (Achilles) questionable for Week 2
    Josh Doctson (Achilles) is questionable for Week 2 against the Cowboys.

    Advice: He was a full participant at practice this week, so his status isn't in doubt. Doctson was only on the field for 12 snaps in Week 1, securing his only target for nine yards in a loss to Pittsburgh. His role should increase steadily throughout the year, but right now Doctson doesn't offer much fantasy appeal. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 10:47 am

    Bills WR Marquise Goodwin is in the league's concussion protocol.

  • Greg Salas, on the Bills, goes 4/89/1 vs. NYJ
    Greg Salas caught 4-of-5 targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in Buffalo's Week 2 loss to the Jets.

    Advice: We hadn't heard Salas' name since before camp, when he was bandied about as a candidate for the Bills' No. 3 receiver job. Apparently he's still in the mix, though his outburst came after a catch-less Week 1. 71 of Salas' yards also came on one catch, a touchdown where the Jets lost track of him with Tyrod Taylor on the move. It's hard to see Salas coming into WR5 value in any format. Rotoworld.com Sep 15, 9:21 pm

  • Marquise Goodwin scores 84-yard TD on Revis
    Bills WR Marquise Goodwin caught 2-of-5 targets for 108 yards and a touchdown in Buffalo's Week 2 loss to the Jets.

    Advice: The Olympic sprinter ran right by Darrelle Revis in the first quarter, catching a perfectly-lofted pass in stride and never looking back as he scored an 84-yard touchdown. He went mostly silent for the rest of the night. Goodwin's 108 yards this evening represent 23.6 percent of his career total. There are plenty of goose eggs in the fourth-year pro's 2016 future.

  • Touchdown-machine Decker scores again vs. BUF
    Eric Decker caught 6-of-8 targets for 126 yards and a touchdown in New York's Week 2 win over the Bills.

    Advice: Decker shook his Week 1 rust all the way off, ripping gigantic holes in the Bills' discombobulated secondary. He scorched Ronald Darby on his five-yard score in the second quarter. Decker could have had an even bigger night, but had a 53-yard grab called back by holding. The touchdown was his 15th in his past 17 games. Quincy Enunwa emerging as a factor has some worrying about Decker and Brandon Marshall's week-to-week consistency, but there should be enough volume to go around for all three in the Jets' high-flying offense. Decker will be a rock-solid WR2 for Week 3 against the Chiefs. Rotoworld.com Sep 15, 8:56 pm

    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.

  • T.Y. Hilton misses practice with knee issue
    T.Y. Hilton was added to the Colts' injury report on Thursday, missing practice with a knee issue.

    Advice: It's concerning on two fronts, as Hilton wasn't on Wednesday's injury report and was "DNP" instead of "limited." Typically players who get hurt mid-practice are listed as limited. Perhaps it was simply a maintenance day for a previously-undisclosed minor issue, but Hilton owners can't take his Week 2 status for granted until we get an update. That might not come until Friday.

  • Wright (hamstring) officially ruled out for Week 2
    Titans coach Mike Mularkey has ruled Kendall Wright (hamstring) out for Week 2 against the Lions.

    Advice: Wright has been limited at practice this week and wasn't going to be ready in time for Sunday. He'll set his sights on a return against Oakland in Week 3. When healthy, Wright is no better than the Titans' fourth-best receiving option. He's not worth a bench stash in 10 and 12-team leagues.Daily Slant: With Wright out in the season opener, Tajae Sharpe ate up 11 targets (7-76) and was clearly the focal point of the passing game, something that should continue in Week 2. Delanie Walker is also very likely to be heavily involved against a Detroit defense that surrendered three TDs to the TE spot last Sunday. That was a problem that carried over from last season, when Detroit allowed a league-high 12 TDs to the position. Rotoworld.com Sep 15, 12:06 pm

    Advice: He was officially "limited." Parker was running routes at the portion of practice that was open to the media. That bodes well for his availability Sunday against New England.

    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 Sep 15, 10:12 am
