    Advice: TE Chase Coffman was signed in a corresponding roster move. A 2012 third-round pick of the Bills, Graham was claimed off waivers at final cuts, but had yet to be active this season. Graham's draft pedigree and 4.34 wheels should earn him another look, but he's looking less and less likely to carve out a career as a situational deep threat. Rotoworld.com

  • Rex: Ivory could start getting more carries
    Speaking Tuesday, Jets coach Rex Ryan said Chris Ivory could get more playing time going forward.

    Advice: "Maybe Chris Ivory will get more time," were Ryan's exact words. "He's running hard. ... There's not a whole lot of guys who want to tackle him." Ivory has run circles around Chris Johnson the past two weeks, but only out-touched him 28-23. CJ?K has out-snapped Ivory 54-52 since Week 2. For the season, Ivory is averaging a robust 5.7 yards per carry compared to just 3.5 for his more famous teammate. Ivory, who's never been known for his hands, has even out-caught Johnson 5-1 over the past two games. The Jets seem to be seeing what everyone else is seeing: Ivory is their best back, and it's not close. Ivory is an upside RB2/FLEX, with Johnson shaping up as a middling RB3. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: "Crazy things have happened in NFL," Gruden said. "I'm not going to discount anything." Gruden is just admitting the obvious, but it's telling he isn't being more diplomatic barely a week after RGIII went down. Gruden was trying to square peg Griffin into a round hole as his quarterback, while Cousins is a perfect fit for what he's trying to do. RGIII owners need to move forward realizing there's a good chance he doesn't start another game this season. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Foster missed the first two weeks of camp way back in late-July due to this hamstring. After racking up 59 touches in the first two weeks, he had to sit out the Week 3 loss to the Giants. "As soon as I feel 100 percent, I'll be out there," he said. "It's my hamstring's call." Recurring or chronic soft-tissue issues are always scary, even if this latest strain is considered minor.

    Alshon Jeffery caught eight passes for 105 yards in the Bears' Week 3 win over the Jets.

    Advice: With Brandon Marshall (ankle) clearly not 100 percent, Jeffery saw a team-high 13 targets. His big catch was a 42-yard gain down the left sideline in Antonio Allen's coverage. Jeffery also drew a 33-yard DPI penalty against Darrin Walls. Both plays led to scores for the Bears. Jeffery could have caught a touchdown, but Jay Cutler overshot him on a 2nd-and-3 pass in the end zone. Jeffery looked like his hamstring wasn't a problem. He'll be a WR1/2 next week vs. Green Bay.

  • Chris Ivory averages 4.4 YPC in MNF loss
    Chris Ivory rushed for 44 yards on ten carries in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Bears.

    Advice: He added four catches for 52 yards. Ivory entered the season with five career catches across 39 games, but he now has five grabs through three contests. Chris Johnson continues to get the starts over Ivory, with each splitting touches, but it's clear Ivory is the more talented back. Jets beat writers even notice that the offense needs to go through Ivory. He's not afraid of contact and runs as hard as any back in the league. Entering the night, Ivory was averaging 4.4 YPC after contact. If the Jets are smart, they'll increase Ivory's touches at Johnson's expense. Ivory gets a tough Detroit run defense in Week 4.

    Kirk Cousins completed 30-of-48 passes for 427 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Philadelphia.

    Advice: Robert Griffin III may never get his job back. Cousins turned in one of the best performances by a quarterback all season, repeatedly throwing perfectly into tiny windows all over the field. He's clearly very comfortable in this Jay Gruden scheme that turned Andy Dalton into fantasy's No. 5 overall quarterback last season. Cousins has tough matchups coming up (vs. NYG, vs. SEA, at ARZ), but needs to be owned in all formats. If he holds off RG3 all year, note that the Redskins host this rancid Eagles pass defense in Week 16 -- also known as fantasy Super Bowl week. Rotoworld.com

  • Alshon Jeffery escapes without setbacks
    Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) escaped Sunday's win over the 49ers without setbacks.

    Advice: He'll be good to go for Week 3 against the Jets' shaky secondary, and is getting an extra day of rest with the game coming on Monday night. Likely still playing at less than 100 percent health, Jeffery will be a borderline WR1. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Vernon Davis avoids serious injury
    A source tells CSN Bay Area that Vernon Davis has avoided a significant left ankle injury.

    Advice: Davis' Monday MRI revealed a deep bruise and no structural damage, meaning he could suit up for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Cardinals. It sounds like a mild, "low" kind of sprain. 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

  • Texans: We'll try to lighten Foster's load
    Speaking Monday, coach Bill O'Brien said the Texans will try to do a better job of "(spreading) out" carries going forward.

    Advice: Arian Foster has taken the rock an absurd 55 times through the Texans' first two games, putting him on pace for 440 carries. That would break Larry Johnson's single-season record by 24. Owners may cringe at the idea of a reduced workload, but it's not like Foster would suddenly be a part of a committee. The Texans have to scale back his work to keep him healthy. Even a scaled-back Foster would be a locked-in RB1, and among the league leaders in totes. Rotoworld.com

  • Vernon Davis undergoing MRI on left ankle
    Vernon Davis is undergoing an MRI on his left ankle.

    Advice: Davis suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss, and was spotted on crutches afterward. It's quite possible he has a high-ankle sprain, which would sideline him in the neighborhood of four weeks. Backup Vance McDonald is dealing with a knee injury, meaning third-year UDFA Derek Carrier could be the next man up on the depth chart. Rotoworld.com

  • Jay Gruden noncommittal on RG3's starting job
    Coach Jay Gruden was noncommittal Monday when asked if Robert Griffin III (dislocated ankle) would get his starting job back when healthy.

    Advice: Reports Monday morning surfaced in D.C. stating that Gruden believed Kirk Cousins was a better fit for his offense than RG3. Gruden's refusal to anoint Griffin his starter when healthy adds fuel to that fire. "We'll cross that bridge when it comes," Gruden said. If Cousins plays well in the Andy Dalton role during RG3's 6-8 week absence, it's possible he'll remain the late-season starter. Griffin could then be placed on the offseason trade block.

  • Report: Gruden preferred Cousins over RG3
    A source tells the Washington Post that Jay Gruden preferred Kirk Cousins to Robert Griffin III even before Sunday's injury.

    Advice: Gruden had no interest in developing a scheme to suit Griffin's strengths. Instead, he tried to shoehorn RG3 into a pocket passer role and the early results were troubling. The Post says the silver lining of RG3's dislocated ankle is that Gruden now gets to insert Cousins free of political backlash. "Kirk is a special guy. ... obviously has a skill set that I feel like is very much suited for what we do," Gruden said. Cousins will be a reasonable QB2 bet at Philly in Week 3. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Ivory, CJ share snaps evenly again
    Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson each played 27 snaps in Sunday's loss at Green Bay.

    Advice: It's further proof that Johnson is the starter in name only. Through two weeks, CJ?K has 31 touches on 60 snaps and Ivory has 24 touches on 57 snaps. Of course, Ivory has been far more effective as he's averaging 6.30 YPC with two touchdowns on the ground vs. 3.56 YPC and zero rushing touchdowns for Johnson. Ivory will be a flex option against the Bears in Week 3. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeffery plays through injury Sunday night
    Alshon Jeffery secured 3-of-6 targets for 47 yards in Sunday night's Week 2 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Jeffery was clearly playing injured, and had just one catch for four yards at half. His only notable play was a 29-yard fade route he caught over 49ers CB Chris Culliver. With the Bears playing on Monday night, Jeffery will have an extra day to get healthy for Week 3. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Forte held in check by 49ers
    Matt Forte had 12 carries for 21 yards in Sunday night's win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Forte was shut down by the 49ers' run defense, and had five catches for just 15 yards on eight targets. The Bears offense wasn't effective despite scoring four touchdowns, and capitalized off good field position following Colin Kaepernick's second-half interceptions. This might end up as Forte's worst game of the season. Forte has another tough matchup in Week 3 against the Jets. Rotoworld.com

    Jace Amaro caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

    Advice: Jeff Cumberland saw two targets, Tommy Bohanon got two and Zach Sudfeld got one. In other words, the Jets aren't scheming the tight-end and H-back looks to their pass-catching rookie. Amaro has two catches on five targets through two games. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Ivory gets another TD in loss at GB
    Chris Ivory rushed 13 times for 43 yards with a touchdown and caught one pass for three yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

    Advice: Ivory's 3.3 yards per carry isn't impressive until you consider "starter" Chris Johnson rushed 12 times for 21 yards (1.8 YPC). Ivory continues to clearly be the Jets' best runner and the coaches know it, giving him 14 touches compared to 13 for CJ?K. As long as Ivory can stay healthy, he's going to be a weekly candidate for a touchdown and double-digit touches. He gets a dream matchup at home against the Bears in Week 3. Rotoworld.com

  • Arian Foster gashes Raiders for 150 yards, TD
    Arian Foster rushed 28 times for 138 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 2 win over the Raiders, adding two catches for 12 yards.

    Advice: He's now on pace for 440 carries this season after toting the rock 27 times in Week 1 and adding 28 rushing attempts in Sunday's 30-14 drubbing of Oakland. Foster's fantasy owners should actually be hoping coach Bill O'Brien scales back Foster's workload in an effort to keep the centerpiece of his offense healthy. For now, of course, Foster remains an elite RB1 and every-down back on a team that knows it must run the football voluminously to stay competitive. Expect another mammoth workload in Week 3 against the 0-2 Giants. Rotoworld.com

  • Kirk Cousins, Niles Paul dominate w/ RG3 out
    Kirk Cousins completed 22-of-33 passes for 250 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 2 blowout of the Jaguars.

    Advice: Robert Griffin suffered a potentially serious ankle injury on the second series of the game, bringing Cousins on in relief. The third-year man immediately shredded, completing his first 14 passes while showing total command of the Jay Gruden scheme from the pocket. He did it without DeSean Jackson (shoulder) and Jordan Reed (hamstring), but with Niles Paul (8-99-1). It's a lot like what we saw in the preseason when Cousins thoroughly outplayed RG3. Cousins will be a fine QB2 play against the Eagles in Week 3 if Griffin remains sidelined. Rotoworld.com

  • Alshon Jeffery appears doubtful for SNF at SF
    A source informed ESPN's Adam Schefter that both Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) are "75 percent" certain to miss Sunday Night Football against the 49ers.

    Advice: They're both likely to be game-time decisions. Jeffery got in a limited practice Friday, while Marshall missed the entire work week. If neither can go, Santonio Holmes will fill the No. 1 receiver hole for Jay Cutler and become an intriguing WR3 option. Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte would also play expanded roles. Rotoworld.com
