  • Denver pass rush excelling again
    The Denver defense has recorded at least three sacks in each game this season.

    Advice: The Broncos wrapped up Cincinnati's Andy Dalton four times in Week 3 despite the Bengals attempting to limit the impact of the Denver pass rush. "They were committed to the run, chipping us and doing those type of things. But then at the end of the day, we had four sacks out of our two outside guys between Shane (Ray) and Von (Miller)," said coach Gary Kubiak. The Broncos D/ST will be a top-tier fantasy option at Tampa Bay in Week 4. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:38 pm

    Seahawks signed RB C.J. Spiller to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Spiller visited with the Jets and Packers before signing. He was a healthy scratch for the Saints in Week 1, and spent the last two weeks out of football. Spiller hasn't been productive since 2013, but lands in a great situation in Seattle. He will be in the mix for a passing-game role behind Christine Michael with Thomas Rawls (fibula) and C.J.

It sounds like Walker should miss only one game, though the early DNP isn't a good start. Walker's return is a needed upgrade to a Tennessee offense that was held to one touchdown last week.

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.

Terrance West hasn't been much better with 119 scoreless yards on 33 carries (3.6 YPC), but he recorded the Ravens' longest run of the young season last week, a 15-yarder to open the third quarter.

So when those things begin to happen, the trust factor and the confidence level just continues to go up."

    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.

    Advice: Eifert has hinted at a return this week but with Cincinnati playing on Thursday night, time is not on his side. He hasn't gone through a full practice yet and has yet to make an appearance in 11-on-11 drills. The Bengals are still calling him a game-time decision, but he's looking closer to doubtful than probable. Even if Eifert played this week, he would have been on a snap count.

  • Fleener shows life, drops 7-109-1 on Falcons
    Coby Fleener caught 7-of-11 targets for 109 yards and one touchdown in the Saints' 45-32, Week 3 loss to the Falcons on Monday night.

    Advice: After totaling three catches for 35 yards on 12 combined targets Weeks 1 and 2, Fleener busted out in a big way against a soft Falcons defense. He caught his first ball for a meager five yards before capping the Saints' first drive with a two-yard touchdown. Fleener's night was still chock full of mistakes, including a pair of drops and a bad holding penalty that took a long run away from Mark Ingram. But Fleener did damage up the seams with a long catch before the half and then a 36-yard gain in the fourth quarter to set up Ingram's five-yard score. Those that dropped Fleener are probably kicking themselves. He'll be in another elite spot Week 4 at San Diego. The Chargers have elite corners, but had given up the most catches and most yards to tight ends entering Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:51 pm

    Tevin Coleman rushed 12 times for 42 yards and three touchdowns in the Falcons' 45-32, Week 3 win over the Saints, adding three catches for 47 yards on three targets.

    Advice: Coleman and Devonta Freeman continued to split the snaps and touches Monday night, but Coleman was the one getting all the scoring chances inside the 10-yard line, with touchdown runs of two, two, and six yards. Freeman owners still have plenty to be happy about after Freeman piled up 207 total yards and a touchdown of his own on 19 touches to Coleman's 15 touches. This offense can support both backs with the tempo it plays at and all the touches it funnels to the two runners. Coleman will be back on the RB2 map next week in a home date with the Panthers.

    Andrew Luck completed 24-of-37 passes for 331 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Chargers.

    Advice: Luck -- and the Colts offense as a whole -- was dreadful for much of the day, but he found T.Y. Hilton for a 63-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter with the Colts trailing 22-20. Luck could have had a more productive afternoon, but Dwayne Allen dropped a six-yard score early in the first quarter. His interception was a terrible sideline shot that set the Chargers up at Indy's six-yard line. Luck's shoulder "injury" was a non-issue, as he uncorked 37 attempts.

    Advice: He added 22 yards on five scrambles. After the performance, Chip Kelly continued to insist that he never considered inserting Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers simply do not have a passing game with Gabbert under center, and they seem content to get their grills pushed in by opponents before piling up rushing stats late in blowout losses.

Forsett didn’t get much traction on Sunday, particularly in the first half when he was stuffed for only four yards on three carries.

    Jarvis Landry caught 7-of-12 targets for 120 yards and a touchdown in Miami's Week 3 win over the Browns.

    Advice: Landry beat Tramon Williams for a 42-yard touchdown early in the second half. He also set up the game-winning touchdown in overtime on a perfectly run route. Landry has benefitted from Miami's pass-heavy playcalling, and is now up to 35 targets through three games. He's locked in as a WR2 for Week 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:31 pm

  • Tajae Sharpe quiet most of the day in loss
    Tajae Sharpe caught 3-of-7 targets for 48 yards in the Titans' Week 3 loss to the Raiders.

    Advice: Sharpe was mostly a non-factor much of the day. Prior to the Titans' final drive, Sharpe had just one catch for six yards on five targets. His two final-drive catches were big to get the Titans in the red zone, but Tennessee predictably failed to convert for the score. With Delanie Walker (hamstring) out of the lineup, Sharpe's line was a big disappointment. Marcus Mariota has been dreadful through three weeks, leaving Sharpe as a low-upside, low-floor WR4 for Week 4 at Houston. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:06 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

    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.

    Advice: Eifert will not play Sunday against the Broncos. Thursday Night Football against the Dolphins in Week 4 is a possibility, though Eifert won't handle a full complement of snaps if he gets the green light. Per Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson, "Lewis did say when Eifert does come back, he won’t play a full game and is going to play a partial amount of snaps."

  • Cutler 'politicking coaches' to play Week 3?
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Jay Cutler (thumb) is "pushing to play" Sunday, and "politicking" the coaching staff.

    Advice: We don't doubt it, but it seems pretty clear that Cutler won't be ready for Sunday Night Football. Master strategist, in his mind, John Fox has yet to rule his quarterback out, but all signs suggest it will be Brian Hoyer under center against the Cowboys. Daily Slant: Even if Cutler is somehow able to play, the Bears offense has been a mess and it's not likely to improve at all if Brian Hoyer is under center. The Cowboys D/ST unit isn't a cash game play this week, but they are an interesting GPP punt for a few reasons. The Bears have scored on just 13% of their possessions this season, the lowest rate in the league, and they've also lead the league in sack rate allowed (12.1%) on their drop backs. Getting pressure on the QB is paramount for D/ST success, as it breeds turnovers. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:25 pm

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.

Either way, three weeks is a long time after Martin claimed his hammy was only mildly tweaked in Sunday's blowout loss to Arizona. It's certainly possible the injury winds up hindering Martin all season. The Bucs have a brutal schedule forthcoming but new lead back Charles Sims' all-purpose ability will stabilize his floor.

    Jay Cutler's thumb injury is expected to cost him 2-3 weeks.

    Advice: This assumes the thumb heals normally. The Bears have been saying Cutler's right (throwing) thumb is only sprained, and called him day to day. He's clearly more week to week. Brian Hoyer will take over at quarterback with the Cowboys, Lions, Colts, and Jaguars next up on Chicago's schedule and needs to be added in two-QB leagues. Hoyer is a competent enough backup that Alshon Jeffery shouldn't be downgraded heavily. It's perhaps worth noting that Josh McCown outplayed Cutler when Cutler missed extensive time during the 2013 season with groin and hamstring injuries.

  • Bears' Cutler day to day with sprained thumb
    Jay Cutler has been diagnosed with a sprained thumb, and is day to day.

    Advice: Cutler does not need surgery. Even by his standards, Cutler was monumentally ineffective playing through the issue on Monday, so he's probably going to be held out for Week 3. The Bears guard injury information like the lost scrolls of Babylon (not an actual thing), so he could end up a "game-time decision," or some other nonsense. The Bears are playing in the Sunday night game, meaning Cutler won't be worth waiting on in two-quarterback leagues. Owners of Bears skill players should proceed as if Brian Hoyer will be under center against the Cowboys. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:20 am

  • Report: Arian Foster dealing with strained groin
    Arian Foster's injury is believed to be a groin strain.

    Advice: Per Tom Pelissero of USA Today, Foster's status for Sunday is "iffy" but he shouldn't miss more than a game or two. Foster hasn't shown much through two weeks, averaging a mere 2.9 yards per carry on 16 rushing attempts. Jay Ajayi would likely draw the start if Foster has to sit out against Cleveland in Week 3.

  • Doug Martin headed for MRI on Tuesday
    Doug Martin (hamstring) will have an MRI on Tuesday.

    Advice: Martin said he suffered a "slight tweak" of his hamstring in the Week 2 loss to the Cardinals, but the MRI suggests the team is worried it could be something more. Even if it is just a minor hamstring pull, Martin is still extremely questionable for this week against the Rams. Charles Sims needs to be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 am

  • Bears expecting 'lengthy absence' for Cutler
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bears "are preparing for a lengthy absence" for Jay Cutler (throwing thumb).

    Advice: The Chicago Sun-Times' Adam Jahns reported earlier Tuesday Cutler suffered ligament damage in his throwing thumb Week 1. He aggravated the injury Monday night. It is possible he is headed for surgery. Brian Hoyer will start with Cutler sidelined. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:55 am

  • Jay Cutler has ligament damage in right thumb
    The Chicago Sun-Times' Adam Jahns reports Jay Cutler has ligament damage in his right (throwing) thumb.

    Advice: Cutler reportedly first suffered the injury Week 1 against the Texans before aggravating the issue against the Eagles. Cutler is expected to be evaluated on Tuesday, and it is possible he is held out a couple weeks after a poor showing while injured Monday night. Brian Hoyer would start if Cutler is sidelined.

  • 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

  • Jay Cutler leaves MNF with right hand injury
    Jay Cutler exited Monday night's Week 2 game against the Eagles with a right hand injury.

    Advice: Cutler appeared to injure his throwing hand while trying to step up and avoid a sack on the first possession of the third quarter. While climbing the pocket, he was hit and lost a fumble. Later in the third quarter, Cutler tossed a horrific interception to WLB Nigel Bradham deep in his own territory, setting the Eagles up at the two-yard line. Before leaving, Cutler completed 12-of-17 passes for 157 yards, no touchdowns, and the pick. Brian Hoyer is now in the game. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:44 pm

  • DeVante Parker not all the way back
    DeVante Parker admitted his explosiveness is not all the way back after battling hamstring injuries all spring and summer.

    Advice: He could have fooled us with 106 yards on 13 targets in Miami's Week 2 loss to New England. "When I get there, it's going to be a whole different kind of ball game," Parker said of his health. Added coach Adam Gase, "As far as him being a playmaker, that’s pretty obvious. He’s a guy we have to keep on the field." Since breaking into the lineup last Week 12, Parker has averaged 78.7 yards with three touchdowns and five games of 80 yards or more in a seven-game sample.

  • Chip Kelly: I'm not yet considering QB change
    49ers coach Chip Kelly said Monday that he is not yet considering a quarterback change.

    Advice: He probably will eventually, but not quite yet. The 49ers are second to last in the NFL in both yards per play (4.4) and yards per pass attempt (5.8), ahead of only the Rams in those categories. That includes a 75-yard touchdown to Vance McDonald. "He's our starter. I've got a lot of confidence in Blaine," said Kelly. "We're not thinking or talking about not having Blaine in there. It's about everybody on offense playing better right now." Kelly's mind may change following a Week 3 trip to Seattle's CenturyLink Field. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 1:14 pm

    Tajae Sharpe played 67-of-67 snaps Week 2 against the Lions.

    Advice: The next highest receiver, Rishard Matthews, played just 36 snaps. Sharpe only managed four catches for 33 yards, but he is the clear No. 1 receiver in Tennessee. Even in a bad offense, his spot on the depth chart should result in WR3 value most weeks. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 6:26 am

    Advice: He almost doubled the playing time of Terrance West, who played just 21 snaps. Neither back put up big fantasy numbers even in a good matchup. Both are FLEX plays at best heading into a matchup with the Jaguars. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 6:20 am

  • Doug Martin suffered 'slight tweak' to hammy
    Doug Martin said he suffered a "slight tweak" to his hamstring in the Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Martin left and never returned to the blowout loss. He said he's unsure how long he'll be out. Hamstring injuries are always tricky when talking about skill players. If not completely healed before returning to action, it's easy to cause worse damage. Martin is very questionable for Week 3 against the Rams. Charles Sims should be owned in all leagues as Martin insurance. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 5:45 pm

  • Broncos terrorize Andrew Luck in Week 2
    Andrew Luck completed 21-of-40 passes for 197 yards with one touchdown, one interception and one lost fumble and also rushed three times for 21 yards Sunday in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: He was sacked five times for a loss of 27 yards. Luck endured a nightmare first half, completing just 5-of-15 passes for 53 yards. He was getting ambushed from all angles with DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller sinking their teeth into the Colts’ porous offensive line. Luck got a slight reprieve when Ware went out with a broken arm and eventually led a 79-yard touchdown march in the third quarter. Luck’s rollercoaster day continued with a fourth-quarter pick-six followed by a seven-yard touchdown strike to Frank Gore. Miller’s forced fumble with 1:42 remaining was the final nail in Indy’s coffin. The deck was stacked against Luck as soon as Donte Moncrief left the game with a head injury in the first half. Luck will hope for a bounceback game against the Chargers in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 5:12 pm

  • Tevin Coleman handles 14 touches, scores
    Tevin Coleman rushed 12 times for 46 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 25 yards in the Falcons' Week 2 win over the Raiders.

    Advice: Although Devonta Freeman has more touches, Coleman has outscored him in fantasy in back-to-back weeks and is playing himself into the every-week flex conversation. Coleman was targeted twice on Sunday and is getting more passing-game action than Freeman. Coleman will offer plenty of upside as a flex play on Monday Night Football against the Saints in Week 3.

  • Mike Floyd totals eight yards, but scores TD
    Michael Floyd caught 2-of-6 targets for eight yards and a touchdown in Arizona's Week 2 win over the Bucs.

    Advice: Floyd seems to have left John Brown in the dust, but the problem is that Larry Fitzgerald has left both in the dust, drawing 21 targets in two games. Floyd has 15. Floyd's WR2/3 numbers should be there, but he seems poised to remain frustratingly boom or bust after flashing takeover potential in the second half last season. Floyd will be a WR2 against the Bills' scorched-earth secondary in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 4:39 pm

    Charcandrick West rushed six times for 61 yards and caught one pass for two yards Week 2 against the Texans.

    Advice: West played 10 fewer snaps than Spencer Ware, but he outgained him on the ground on the back of two long runs. Ware was still more involved in the passing game, and he is likely to be much more involved overall once Jamaal Charles returns next week. West does not need to be owned in standard-sized leagues.

    Advice: McDonald came out of nowhere for a 75-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, beating Luke Kuechly and outrunning the entire secondary. He has touchdowns in the first two games, but is losing base snaps to Garrett Celek. There’s better streaming options than McDonald for Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 3:20 pm

  • Fleener remains a non-factor in Week 2 loss
    Coby Fleener reeled in just two-of-eight targets for 29 yards Sunday in the Saints' Week 2 loss to the Giants.

    Advice: It was another frustrating afternoon for Fleener, who continues to show little chemistry with Drew Brees. He did have one big play, finding a soft spot in the defense for 21 yards in the fourth quarter. Fleener beat Eli Apple downfield in the first quarter on a play that should have gone for a huge gain but just flat-out dropped it. Brees has been kind to tight ends over the years but Fleener hasn’t shown much of anything in his first two games. Even in a plus matchup against the Falcons in Week 3, he’s nothing more than a low-end TE1. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 2:43 pm

  • Forsett totals 46 yards in win over Browns
    Justin Forsett rushed 14 times for 37 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for nine yards in the Ravens' Week 2 win over the Browns.

    Advice: Forsett got the nominal start, but again split work with Terrance West, who carried it 11 times. Neither running back did a whole lot, as West managed just 42 yards on his totes and dropped his lone target. This is shaping up as a backfield to simply avoid after two weeks. The Ravens are a pass-first team. Forsett won't be anything more than a flex play next week at Jacksonville. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 2:18 pm

  • Gabbert manages 243 yards, 3 total TDs
    Blaine Gabbert completed 17-of-36 passes for 243 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Panthers.

    Advice: He also scored on a one-yard sneak. Gabbert's stat line is misleading in a game Carolina had multiple turnovers. He took six sacks and failed to move the offense when the 49ers' had a chance to tie late in the fourth quarter. Gabbert's yardage was inflated on a 75-yard touchdown to TE Vance McDonald against broken coverage. The 49ers play Seattle in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 2:05 pm

  • 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

    Jarvis Landry caught 10-of-13 targets for 137 yards in Miami's Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: Trying to do too much in a first half where the Dolphins were getting shellacked, Landry also lost a fumble. Landry benefitted from pass-happy comeback mode, but was always open for Ryan Tannehill. He also did some good work after the catch. Landry now has 23 targets through two games. He's a volume-based WR2 in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:40 pm

    Advice: The good news is Sharpe tied DeMarco Murray for the team lead in targets. The bad news is Sharpe only caught passes close to the line of scrimmage with a long gain of 12. He'll be a fringe WR3 option in Week 3 against the Raiders. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:35 pm

He probably won't be worth the investment in daily leagues.

  • 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
