  • Report: Lions mulling kicker change
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions are "kicking around idea of new kicker," and have worked out free agents Rob Bironas, Alex Henery and Garrett Hartley.

    Advice: Seventh-round rookie Nate Freese is just two for his first five on field goals, and on extremely thin ice. Arguably any of the three veterans the Lions worked out would be an improvement. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon won't earn longer ban for DWI charge
    Josh Gordon has pled guilty to DWI charges in Wake County, North Carolina, and been sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation.

    Advice: He must also pay a $390 fine. The league's new drug policy mandates a two-game suspension for players who are convicted or plead out in drunk-driving cases, but Gordon's arrest occurred under the old policy. Per Profootballtalk, he'll only be subject to a fine, and won't have his current 10-game ban lengthened. NFL.com's Albert Breer reports Gordon has been "assured" that's the case. It means he's still on track to return in Week 12, and no longer has any outstanding legal issues. Now hopefully Gordon can stay on the straight and narrow. Rotoworld.com

If Davis does have to sit a game out, the 49ers may have to turn to Derek Carrier at tight end with Vance McDonald (knee) questionable. Rotoworld.com

    Tony Romo has attempted only five passes over 20 yards in the Cowboys' first two games.

    Advice: Of the five passes, only one was completed -- a 56-yard catch to Dwayne Harris that was underthrown. Romo attributed his downfield struggles to "poor body positioning" and not decreased arm strength coming off two back surgeries. Still, it's clear the Cowboys are taking less chances downfield, and relying more on getting touches to DeMarco Murray. Coach Jason Garrett said he isn't concerned about the pass offense, but admitted that Romo's back injury "remains a work in progress." Romo is averaging 6.9 YPA this season. The Cowboys rank 22nd in the NFL with 201.5 pass yards per game. Rotoworld.com

PFF credited him with 15 missed tackles forced on 75 rushes last season (including playoffs) and he graded out higher than the likes of Reggie Bush and Matt Forte in Elusive Ratings. Unlike Ivory, Robinson is also a plus in the pass game. Now looking at the goal-line work and a share of the base snaps with Pierre Thomas, Khiry is worth adding in all formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Zach Ertz catches four balls for 81 yards
    Zach Ertz caught 4-of-6 targets for 81 yards in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts on Monday night.

    Advice: Outside of Darren Sproles, Ertz was the Eagles' leading receiver. But after playing 60 percent of the snaps in Week 1, we'd bet that number dipped in Week 2. He just wasn't on the field enough despite making highlight-reel catches when he did touch the ball. Ertz had a big catch on a 3rd-and-11 when he went up and got the ball to set up LeSean McCoy's one-yard touchdown. He's a back-end TE1 thanks to his playmaking ability, but we want to see more usage.

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Josh Gordon will be able to attend the Browns' facility during his ten-game suspension.

    Advice: The Browns reportedly pushed hard for Gordon to be allowed to attend meetings and work out in the team weight room, which makes sense because he seems like a young player in need of a constant support system. Fantasy owners can continue to cling to Gordon, but we suspect he'll end up getting dropped in most normal-sized leagues during bye-week crunches. He'll be eligible in Week 12. Rotoworld.com

Thankfully, he made a habit of targeting Dez Bryant, looking his way 14 times, and finding him for 10 catches and a touchdown.

    According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Josh Gordon "has been notified" his suspension will be reduced from 16 to 10 games, "pending final approval" of the NFL's new drug policy.

    Advice: Profootballtalk.com has now joined the Plain Dealer and ESPN's Adam Schefter in reporting Gordon's suspension will indeed be ten games, reduced from 16. The new substance abuse policy reduced the ban. PFT's Mike Florio reports Gordon will be subject to another two-game suspension stemming from his offseason DUI arrest, but Florio considers it "unlikely" that the additional ban will be enforced during the 2014 season. So Gordon's projected return date this year is November 23 against the Falcons. That's Week 12. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Gordon's suspension will be 10 games
    The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Josh Gordon will be suspended ten games under the terms of the NFL's new drug policy.

    Advice: It's two more games than expected, but at least Gordon will be available, technically, in Weeks 12-17 for the Browns. That assumes he makes no mistakes during the ten-game ban, and no more games are tacked on for his offseason DUI arrest. We suspect fantasy owners will have a tough time hanging onto Gordon as bye-week crunches set in, but it's certainly worth trying in 12- and 14-team leagues. Gordon was already suspended for Week 1, and the Browns' bye is in Week 4, so the projected return date is Week 12. Asked Friday whether he thinks Gordon will rejoin the Browns at any point this year, coach Mike Pettine responded "I'll believe it when I see it." Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Werder reports Williams "did some running" on Friday, but "still has pain" in his thigh. The Panthers figure to turn to Jonathan Stewart as their lead back against Detroit's stingy run defense, with Mike Tolbert and Fozzy Whittaker mixing in.

With Marshall looking highly questionable, as well, there's a chance the Bears could be forced to go on the road with Santonio Holmes as their No. 1 receiver. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Romo bounces back well off debacles
    In his nine previous games following a three-interception day, Tony Romo has a 94.2 passer rating.

    Advice: Romo (back) is on the Week 2 injury report, but practicing in full. Romo was out of sorts in the Week 1 loss to the 49ers, tossing three picks in the first 20 minutes. A bounce-back game against the Titans Sunday should surprise no one. He's been especially strong off three-interception performances lately, throwing seven touchdowns against four picks while averaging 279.7 passing yards in the last four instances. Note that Dallas is only a 3.5 point underdog in a game with a healthy over/under of 49.5. Rotoworld.com

  • NFLPA vote on drug policy won't be Thursday
    The vote among NFLPA reps on a new drug policy is not expected until Friday at the earliest.

    Advice: Josh Gordon, Wes Welker and other recently suspended players remain in limbo. The union is awaiting a response from the league to its latest recommendations before they actually hold their vote, and the league office is a engulfed with the Ray Rice scandal right now. The two sides appear close on a deal, but there are "issues with language on multiple issues, including commissioner authority in the appeals process." Gordon remains worth stashing in all formats even though this isn't going to get sorted out before Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Jeffery missed the fourth quarter and overtime of Sunday's loss to Buffalo. He's considered day to day, but his status for Week 2 remains uncertain. Jeffery will be a borderline WR2 if active for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins' right foot in boot
    Austin Seferian-Jenkins (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: ASJ has his right foot in a walking boot. It's the same foot he suffered a stress fracture in in February, which required surgery. It's unclear if the new injury is related or if the Bucs are just being cautious, but it's something to monitor. Seferian-Jenkins secured his lone target for 26 yards in Week 1. Rotoworld.com

  • Ertz plays 60 percent of snaps in Week 1 win
    Zach Ertz played 52-of-87 (60 percent) of the offensive snaps in the Eagles' Week 1 win over Jacksonville.

    Advice: Ertz started in the slot, but moved around the formation. He saw just five targets, but turned them into three catches for 77 yards and one touchdown. The Jaguars were one of the worst teams when it came to defending tight ends in 2013, but Ertz is a red-zone dominator who has six touchdowns in his last ten games. Playing 60 percent of the snaps is an increase on his 41-percent usage as a rookie. Fire Ertz up as a TE1 for Week 2 against the Colts. Rotoworld.com

  • Vernon Davis drops two TDs on Cowboys
    Vernon Davis caught 4-of-6 targets for 44 yards and two touchdowns in San Francisco's Week 1 rout of the Cowboys.

    Advice: One of the league's premier red-zone threats, Davis notched scores of 29 and two yards in the first quarter. Davis can be a disappointing fantasy play when he doesn't find the zone, but he does so with such regularity that he's an every-week TE1. Rotoworld.com

  • Seferian-Jenkins goes 1-26 in NFL debut
    Bucs rookie TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins secured his lone target for 26 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Panthers.

    Advice: "ASJ" appeared headed for a potentially big game when he ripped off the 26-yarder in the first quarter -- shedding several tackles -- but he wasn't targeted again. The Bucs need to get that fixed, as plodder Brandon Myers was targeted eight times. Seferian-Jenkins has a lot more playmaking ability. Rotoworld.com

  • Romo tosses three picks in Week 1 meltdown
    Tony Romo completed 23-of-37 passes for 281 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in Dallas' 28-17, Week 1 loss to the 49ers.

    Advice: All three of Romo's picks came in the game's first 20 minutes, and were forced into double or triple coverage. Combined, there were three Cowboys and eight 49ers in the vicinity of Romo's turnovers. He might have gotten benched were his name not Tony Romo. Romo simply wasn't on the same page with any of his weapons after being babied along this offseason as he recovered from his second back surgery in 16 months. He needs to get better in a hurry if the Cowboys are to avoid total embarrassment this season. Dallas heads to Tennessee next Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Tolbert gets 9 touches in Week 1
    Mike Tolbert managed 11 yards on seven carries and caught 2-of-4 targets for six yards in the Panthers' Week 1 win over the Bucs.

    Advice: A plodding ball carrier with some power and receiving skills, Tolbert was used to kill the clock against Tampa Bay. He's more of a drain on DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart's fantasy value than a standalone option. Tolbert remained involved in red-zone packages and will score touchdowns in some weeks, but they'll be impossible to predict. Tolbert is not really even an RB4. Rotoworld.com

  • DeAngelo Williams goes 14-72 vs. Bucs
    DeAngelo Williams rushed 14 times for 72 yards in the Panthers' Week 1 win over the Buccaneers.

    Advice: 31-year-old Williams showed some juice on perimeter runs and remained Carolina's lead back, ahead of Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert. Not involved in the passing game, however, Williams is tough to trust as anything more than a low-upside flex option. His weekly ceiling is about 17 touches, with a floor in the single digits. The Panthers square off with a stout Lions defense next. Rotoworld.com

  • Alshon's hammy injury doesn't appear serious
    Following Sunday's loss to the Bills, coach Marc Trestman downplayed Alshon Jeffery's hamstring injury.

    Advice: Jeffery missed the fourth quarter and overtime, finishing with a 5-71-0 line on six targets. "Alshon was prepared to go in there at specific times. I'll just leave it at that," Trestman said. Jeffery was also spotted in the locker room walking without any limp or discomfort. We'll consider him day to day for now. Rotoworld.com

  • Robinson only gets six carries, nabs a TD
    Khiry Robinson rushed six times for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 1 matchup with the Falcons.

    Advice: Robinson busted a 21-yard score early in the second quarter, and then finished the drive with a two-yard touchdown plunge. Four of Robinson's six carries came in the second quarter, while Mark Ingram dominated the early-down work the rest of the game. Robinson will have a role in New Orleans' offense, but it appears he will need Ingram to falter before he gets any meaningful work. Rotoworld.com

  • Zach Ertz puts 77 yards, TD on the Jaguars
    Zach Ertz caught three passes for 77 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Jaguars.

    Advice: The breakout is on. Ertz only saw five targets in a predictably "spread the wealth" passing attack, but he dominated the seam while lining up both as an in-line tight end and in the slot. Most importantly, he got some reps in "11" personnel while Brent Celek stood on the sideline -- and scored his touchdown out of that formation. A red-zone dominator with gobs of upside, Ertz will be a fine TE1 at Indy next week. Rotoworld.com

    Alshon Jeffery was forced from Sunday's Week 1 game against the Bills with a hamstring injury.
