  • Panthers to face struggling run game
    Carolina will host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3, who are last among NFL offenses in rushing yards through two weeks.

    Advice: The Vikings have racked up just 95 total yards on the ground through two weeks and now will face Carolina without Adrian Peterson (knee). Carolina held San Francisco to 65 rushing yards in Week 2 and will be a tough test for Minnesota's committee of running backs. The Panthers D/ST is a solid fantasy option at home this week.

  • Brandon Marshall expected to play Sunday
    ESPN New York expects Brandon Marshall (questionable, knee/foot) to play Sunday.

    Advice: Marshall only got in one limited practice, but the missed reps aren't a huge concern to his Week 3 status. Marshall clearly isn't fully healthy despite playing through his knee injury last week and remains a game-time decision. He's trending toward being active. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:27 pm

  • 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

"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're not in college anymore. You're not going to throw that ball through that guy.'"

"I mean coming in I kind of wanted to take over that role, but things happen," Wheaton said. "Things happen and all I can do is get better now and keep continuing to grow."

    Advice: Wheaton said his absence last week was because of a lack of game preparation rather than his troublesome shoulder, and he is ready after another full week of practice. Sammie Coates was heavily involved as a deep threat against the Bengals, but Wheaton should return to the starting role opposite Antonio Brown.

    Delanie Walker (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Raiders after missing Friday's practice.

    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.

  • Bucs give up on Seferian-Jenkins after arrest
    Buccaneers waived TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

    Advice: Cameron Brate and Luke Stocker will be the Bucs' tight ends the rest of the way. The 38th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Seferian-Jenkins was known to have drinking problems at the University of Washington and was popped for DUI on Friday morning, leading to his release. Some team will undoubtedly give the 24-year-old another chance, but Seferian-Jenkins will eventually face a suspension from the NFL. ASJ's loss is a blow to Jameis Winston's fantasy outlook. Seferian-Jenkins at least had potential, and the Bucs have gotten very little from their complementary pass catchers behind Mike Evans. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:08 am

We're looking at a possible game-time call. While we still anticipate Walker playing, his absence would likely translate to a few more targets for Tajae Sharpe on the off chance Walker can't go.

  • Delanie Walker blames injury on holding
    Delanie Walker says he "tweaked" his hamstring because Lions defenders were holding him in last Sunday's win over Detroit.

    Advice: "I did it in the game. They were holding a lot," he said. "Their defense was holding a lot, and it made me tweak my hamstring a little bit." This sounds humorous, but in Walker's defense the Lions did commit an incredible 17 penalties in Week 2.

It's his second DUI after being busted for one in 2013 while he was still in college.

    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.

    Advice: "He's outstanding," said Fisher. "When the season is said and done, people are going to go, 'Wow.'" If only it were that simple.

    Advice: McCluster was released by the Titans at final cuts. McCluster has become something of a meme, but should actually slide in to Danny Woodhead's role fairly seamlessly. Woodhead is both a better runner and pass catcher, but McCluster does a decent imitation. He played for OC Ken Whisenhunt in Tennessee. Playing with better teammates for a better coaching staff than he did with the Titans, Dex could come into immediate PPR value. The Chargers want to be a two-back offense.

  • Bowles: Marshall not dealing with sprained MCL
    Jets coach Todd Bowles said Brandon Marshall (knee) does not have a sprained MCL.

    Advice: Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reported Sunday that Marshall is dealing with an "MCL injury." That could still be the case but Bowles is adamant it's not a sprain, which can often lead to a multi-week absence. Marshall wasn't on the field for the start of Monday's practice. We'll continue to monitor his status all week. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:48 am

  • Watkins wants Woods to be more involved
    Sammy Watkins thinks the Bills should get Robert Woods more involved in the offense.

    Advice: Go-to receivers usually ask for the ball more but Watkins seems to want it less. The Bills have promised to make Watkins the focal point under new OC Anthony Lynn but that might be difficult while he's hobbled by a foot injury. Meanwhile Woods has hauled in just five-of-seven targets for 30 yards over his first two games. The Bills are a mess on both of sides the ball right now and in danger of falling into an 0-4 hole with matchups coming up against New England and Arizona. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:38 am

  • Marshall not spotted on practice field Monday
    Brandon Marshall (knee) was not seen at the start of practice on Monday.

    Advice: The Jets are not required to release a practice report until Wednesday, so his official status will not be known until then. Marshall shockingly returned to Thursday night's game after a nasty looking knee injury, and coach Todd Bowles has said the receiver is "fine." Pro Football Talk reports he is dealing with an "MCL injury," however, and says he is "not a lock" to be ready for Week 3. This situation will be closely monitored all week.

  • Siemian shreds Indy for 266 yards in Week 2
    Trevor Siemian completed 22-of-33 passes for 266 yards with one interception and also rushed once for seven yards Sunday in the Broncos' Week 2 win over the Colts.

    Advice: Aside from a careless interception, Siemian had his way with Indy in the first half, carving up the Colts’ injury-plagued secondary for 215 yards on 17-of-25 passing. Denver’s defense scored touchdowns on interception and fumble returns, keeping Siemian off the field for much of the second half. Siemian still had trouble finishing drives but at least he made fewer mistakes than he did in last week’s opener. He won’t be a recommended streaming option against the Bengals in Week 3.

  • Justin Hardy catches 8-yard TD in Week 2
    Justin Hardy caught 1-of-3 targets for an eight-yard touchdown in the Falcons' Week 2 win over the Raiders.

    Advice: Hardy's touchdown was one of the luckiest ones you'll ever see, as Matt Ryan's pass ricocheted off of Tevin Coleman with a defender all over him and into the waiting arms of Hardy. The Falcons' lightly-used slot receiver, Hardy has no fantasy value and is not a must-hold in Dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 5:27 pm

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins has two-catch day
    Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 2-of-2 targets for 14 yards in the Bucs' Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: ASJ remains mired in a timeshare with Cameron Brate. He has three targets through two games. There are better ways to use a roster spot in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 5:05 pm

  • Mohamed Sanu has slow Week 2 game
    Mohamed Sanu caught 3-of-5 targets for 19 yards in the Falcons' Week 2 win over the Raiders.

    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. Normally a WR4, Sanu would become a legitimate WR2 if Jones missed Week 3 at New Orleans. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 4:47 pm

  • Seahawks hold Gurley in check Week 2
    Todd Gurley rushed for 51 yards on 19 carries in the Rams' Week 2 win over the Seahawks.

    Advice: He caught his lone pass-game target for 19 yards. Even with the Rams controlling this defensive-minded field goal-fest from start to finish, Gurley was still unable to find any running room. The Seahawks sold out to stop Gurley and let Case Keenum throw against soft coverage. Things will get a bit easier next week when the Rams travel to Tampa Bay, but no matchup is going to be a cake walk for Gurley this season, as every defense will be out to stop him.

  • Report: Brandon Marshall has an 'MCL injury'
    PFT's Mike Florio reports Brandon Marshall has an "MCL injury" and is "not a lock" to be ready Week 3 against the Chiefs.

    Advice: Marshall had his knee twisted in an awkward fashion this past Thursday night against the Bills. Replays had many fearing the worst, but Marshall emerged from the locker room to return to the game and post a 6-101 line in the win. With 10 days to rest up, Marshall should be good to go next week, but it'll be something to watch as the week unfolds. We'll have plenty of updates. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 4:30 pm

  • Delanie Walker comes alive as TEN upsets DET
    Delanie Walker caught 6-of-6 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 2 upset of the Lions.

    Advice: The Titans promised Walker would be more involved and he was, dusting the Detroit defense in the middle of the field and turning in a standout fantasy performance capped by a 30-yard touchdown throw from Marcus Mariota. The Titans proactively fed Walker on tight end screens. It remains slightly concerning that Walker has only 11 targets through two games, but he will continue to be a strong TE1 option in Week 3 against the Raiders. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:17 pm

  • 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

  • Gurley thinks he was 'trying to do too much'
    Todd Gurley thinks he was "trying to do too much" and was not "patient enough" Week 1.

    Advice: "I’ve just got to stick to the game plan," Gurley said, "and just know that everything is going to be fine, and we’re going to break one." Gurley came out of the gates on fire as a rookie, but he struggled down the stretch last season and continued those struggles in Week 1. With either Case Keenum or a guy who could not beat out Case Keenum slated to be under center all season, Gurley's life is not going to get any easier. He is a borderline RB1 this week against Seattle. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 7:23 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

  • Rams remove Gurley from Week 2 injury report
    The Rams released an updated injury report Friday which no longer includes Todd Gurley.

    Advice: Gurley was laughably listed as questionable due to "rest" on the Rams' initial injury report. (Is there anything the Rams do these days that couldn't be preceded by the adjective "laughably?") Gurley will start versus Seattle. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 3:55 pm

  • Markus Wheaton practicing in full for Week 2
    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. Jesse James and Eli Rogers are looking like real competition for targets behind Antonio Brown. Rotoworld.com Sep 15, 3:55 pm

    Mohamed Sanu (ankle) will be limited at Thursday's practice.

    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
