  • Thomas Rawls expected to miss multiple weeks
    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Thomas Rawls (fibula) will miss multiple weeks.

    Advice: Carroll said Rawls' injury is "a little worse than we thought." NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Rawls has a hairline fracture. After taking a shockingly long time to recover from the ankle injury which ended his 2015 campaign, it is not a given Rawls will return anytime soon. Christine Michael is locked in as the No. 1 back in Seattle. He will be a solid RB1 even in a tough matchup with the Jets. Rotoworld.com 38 minutes ago

  • Jared Cook's ankle injury not season-ending
    ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky reports Jared Cook's ankle injury is not season-ending.

    Advice: Cooks was spotted on crutches and in a boot after being carted to the locker room Week 3 against the Lions. The concern is the injury is to the same foot which required surgery in June. Demovsky reports the Packers are still trying to determine if he is looking at a multi-week absence. The Packers are on bye this week before hosting the Giants in Week 5. Rotoworld.com 43 minutes ago

  • Pete Carroll confirms Wilson has MCL sprain
    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Russell Wilson has an MCL sprain.

    Advice: Carroll said Wilson "feels great" and is recovering well, but he will wear a brace if he plays this week. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday night Wilson expected to play this week against the Jets, and the confirmation of a sprain suggests that is still the plan. Still, Wilson's mobility was hindered even before this injury, and he has not proven to be a quality fantasy asset while hurt. He will be difficult to trust even in a good matchup.

  • Eagles will use RBBC even if Mathews healthy
    Eagles coach Doug Pederson said the team will continue to use a backfield rotation even when Ryan Mathews (ankle) is healthy.

    Advice: Pederson confirmed Mathews' is dealing with some stiffness and swelling in the ankle he injured prior to training camp. He should be able to recover over the team's Week 4 bye, but he is looking at a timeshare with at least Darren Sproles and likely rookie Wendell Smallwood as well. Mathews is shaping up as a touchdown-dependant FLEX play at best. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:09 am

Peterson is officially able to return Week 11, but it would be surprising to see him before late December.

It was never likely Foster would return on a short week, but he could make it back for the Dolphins' Week 5 clash with the Titans.

Howard was already earning more work even before the injury, however, and was much more effective with his touches than Langford has been at any point this season. Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) should also have a role once he gets healthy, but Howard could run away with the starting job. He is a must-add in all formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:25 am

    Advice: Jennings said he has no problem holding the ball in his right hand when rushing, but the thumb injury does affect his ability to catch and pass protect. Jennings said he is "going to do everything I possibly can" to be ready for Monday night's matchup with the Vikings, but it would not be surprising if he sat out again.

    Advice: Bryant briefly exited with a knee injury on the opening drive. He stayed in the game, but was noticeably limited. Bryant managed to save his night with a 17-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, but his lack of yards in two of three games is concerning.

Elliott’s highlight was a hurdle over S Chris Prosinski at the end of a third quarter run. He didn't have any ball security issues after two fumbles last week.

    Ryan Mathews lost five yards on two rushes Sunday in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Steelers.

    Advice: Mathews didn’t play a snap after the first quarter as his backfield mates took turns embarrassing Pittsburgh in a lopsided victory. The Eagles haven’t explained his absence, though we’re guessing it’s related to an ankle issue he’s been dealing with since training camp. Mathews has averaged just 3.15 yards per carry this year, though he's managed to stay relevant in fantasy with a trio of goal-line touchdowns.

    Advice: It's perhaps more notable that both coach Pete Carroll and Wilson himself expressed confidence after Sunday's win that Wilson will be able to play in Week 4 against the Jets. NBC's Mike Florio reported Wilson will undergo an MRI on Sunday night to determine the full extent of the damage. Wilson insisted he "doesn't think the knee injury is as serious as it looked."

    Advice: The left leg injury originally appeared to be to Wilson's ankle, but it turned out to be to Wilson's knee, on which a brace was placed by trainers on the sideline. The fact that Wilson kept his helmet on and was lobbying to reenter on Sunday suggests he fully intends to play in Week 4 against the Jets. "Most likely he's going to be fine," coach Pete Carroll conceded. "Because that's just how he operates." On the off chance Wilson can't get clearance, UDFA Trevone Boykin would make the start.

He finally got going against the Bills, drawing 11 targets to tie Michael Floyd for second on the team behind Larry Fitzgerald (12) in a game where Carson Palmer attempted 50 throws.

    Cam Newton completed 21-of-35 passes for 262 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions in Carolina's 22-10, Week 3 loss to the Vikings, adding 7/26/1 as a rusher.

    Advice: Newton got beaten to a pulp by Minnesota's swarming defense, taking eight sacks and tweaking his ankle. Time and again, the Vikings' pass rush was in Newton's face before he had time to so much as blink. On one of the only throws where Newton had time, he took a coverage sack in the end zone, resulting in a safety. His first quarter rushing score on a leisurely play fake was his only saving grace.

    Kelvin Benjamin was held without a catch on one target in Carolina's Week 3 loss to the Vikings.

    Advice: Benjamin's one and only target came with 2:34 remaining. The Panthers' offense was out of sync all day — no running game, no pass protection — but it was still a baffling effort. Cam Newton attempted 35 passes, targeting Greg Olsen 10 times. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer made it his mission to eliminate Benjamin, and succeeded beyond his wildest imagination.

    Advice: Green's lowlight was a third-down drop late in the game that would have given the Bengals a fighting chance, before Demaryius Thomas' game-sealing 55-yard touchdown bomb.

  • Shocker: Rashad Jennings (thumb) will sit
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Rashad Jennings (thumb) is expected to miss Sunday's Week 3 game against the Redskins.

    Advice: It's a stunner as Jennings attended practice throughout the week and never looked to be in serious danger of missing Week 3. His thumb injury is obviously more severe than the Giants were letting on. He's week to week. It's unclear how the backfield will shape up in his absence, though Shane Vereen logged 17 touches with Jennings ailing against the Saints in Week 2.

  • RapSheet: Dolphins will start Kenyan Drake
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Dolphins are "treating Kenyan Drake as the starter today" in the absence of Arian Foster (groin).

    Advice: RapSheet does acknowledge the Dolphins will "mix in other runners" against the Browns. Jay Ajayi is understandably in coach Adam Gase's doghouse due to his total ineffectiveness and last week's lost fumble against the Patriots. The Dolphins used a third-round pick on Drake and want him to succeed. RapSheet reports Damien Williams and Isaiah Pead "missed a meeting" prior to the Dolphins-Pats game, which is why they were both inactive. We'd expect at least one of Williams and Pead to play against the Browns. Even against the Browns, Drake is a low-floor flex option in season-long leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:01 am

    Advice: Snead's status is up in the air after missing most of the practice week. He's "hopeful" of playing, but knows it'll come down to how he feels Monday. Even if Snead starts, the late game and possibility of a setback make him a risky WR3 play. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:02 pm

Coach Ben McAdoo also said he is "comfortable" with his No. 1 back. It seems clear Jennings is going to play, but he could see limited touches after playing fewer snaps than Shane Vereen last week.

    Advice: Wheaton was slated to be the clear No. 2 to open the season, but a sprained right shoulder kept him out the first two weeks. Now he is returning to a timeshare. "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."

Sammie Coates was heavily involved as a deep threat against the Bengals, but Wheaton should return to the starting role opposite Antonio Brown.

He also caught both of his pass-game targets. Jeremy Langford has been brutal through two games, averaging 3.0 YPC with a lost fumble. He's not making defenders miss.

    Advice: Peterson has a "bucket handle tear." He's likely headed to season-ending I.R. with a recovery that "usually" requires six months. At best, it sounds like Peterson could maybe play in the playoffs if the Vikings make it. But in all likelihood, this is Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata's backfield for the remainder of 2016. With just one year left on his contract and set to count $18 million against the cap in 2017, we may have seen Peterson's last carry in a Vikings uniform.

    Advice: Per ESPN's Jordan Raanan, Jennings "seems confident" he'll suit up against the Redskins. The Giants will update his status after Wednesday's practice. Daily Slant: Jennings averaged just 2.1 YPC against the Saints - who allowed the most FPPG to RBs last season - on Sunday, while fellow RB Shane Vereen averaged just 3.0 YPC. Neither back has stood out this season and with Vereen arguably looking like the better between the tackles runner through two games, the carries may even out a bit more compared to Week 1 (18 for Jennings, 6 for Vereen). Vereen's extended usage Sunday was likely just a result of Jennings' injury, but at this point it's best to leave both of them untouched for DFS purposes. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:39 pm

  • Ertz (ribs) to be a game-time decision in Week 3
    Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Zach Ertz (ribs) will be a game-time decision against the Steelers in Week 3.

    Advice: Ertz sat out practice last week and didn't suit up for Monday night's game in Chicago. Trey Burton drew the start in his place and played reasonably well, hauling in five catches for 49 yards and a touchdown. Pederson said cornerback Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) will also be a game-time decision for Week 3. Daily Slant: Assuming Ertz sits out again this week, Trey Burton will be a fine GPP play at the TE position against a Steelers defense that has been picked on in that regard over the first two games. Cincinnati targeted their TEs a total of 12 times, and while those were turned into just 44 yards, they barely missed on some TD opportunities. Jordan Reed saw 11 targets against this defense in Week 1. Burton tied for 2nd on the team in targets Monday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:13 am

    Advice: Elliott was pulled after his second fumble against the Redskins on Sunday, but the Cowboys do not seem worried it is a long-term issue. "He fundamentally carries the ball really sound," Jones said. "He carries it. He carries it up against him. We won't get into all of that detail, but if you asked the question: Is he very sound in the way he holds the football? He is." Alfred Morris might be in line for more work, but Elliott will remain the clear workhorse moving forward. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:07 am

  • Markus Wheaton says shoulder is 'fine'
    Markus Wheaton said his shoulder is "fine."

    Advice: Wheaton missed his second game in a row Sunday, but he said the injury did not play a role in the decision. "It's just a matter that I missed a lot of football," Wheaton said. "And so with that little bit of practice it was an easy call." Wheaton practiced in full early last week before being limited on Friday. Another week of full practices should have him ready for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:30 am

  • AD's timetable depends on course of action
    The timetable for Adrian Peterson's return from a torn meniscus will depend on the severity of the injury and how the doctors choose to treat it.

    Advice: The best-case scenario would be for Peterson to avoid surgery, which could allow him to return in a couple weeks. Peterson has two options if he needs to go under the knife. Having the meniscus trimmed or removed could allow him to come back as early as Week 7, but that surgery is unlikely to offer a complete recovery. If Peterson chooses to have the meniscus repaired, he could be looking at a 3-4 month timetable. Until all of those decisions are made, Peterson's status is completely up in the air.

  • Jordan Howard rushes for 22 yards in MNF loss
    Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed three times for 22 yards in Chicago's Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

    Advice: Howard was active for the Week 1 opener but didn't play a snap. That changed Monday night after Ka'Deem Carey left with a hamstring injury and Jeremy Langford again failed to impress with an 11-28-1 rushing line and a lost fumble at midfield in the fourth quarter. Howard rushed for gains of eight, 10, and four yards and also caught both of his targets for nine yards. On limited snaps, he looked far better than Langford has at any point through two games. He's worth adding right now in 14-team leagues with Langford's grip loosening on the starting job. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:07 pm

  • Ryan Mathews scores two goal-line TDs in win
    Ryan Mathews rushed nine times for 32 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' 29-14, Week 2 win over the Bears on Monday night.

    Advice: The yardage and touch total wasn't there for Mathews, and he only carried the ball two times for five yards in the first half. (Darren Sproles handled five carries for 13 yards before the break.) But Mathews converted two carries at the goal line for three- and one-yard touchdowns. On his three-yard score, Mathews was stuffed at the one, but bounced off the tackle to the outside and into the end zone. His one-yarder was a walk-in score on a sweep to the left. The Eagles' infatuation with Sproles as a ball carrier is frustrating for Mathews owners, but he has three touchdowns through two games. Things won't be as easy next week at home against the Steelers. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:34 pm

    Vikings coach Mike Zimmer announced that Adrian Peterson has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus.

    Advice: It could have been a lot worse, though it's still likely Peterson is looking at a multi-week absence. Zimmer didn't completely dismiss the idea of Peterson playing against the Panthers in Week 3, but given the nature of his injury, we'd consider that an extreme long shot. With Peterson sidelined for most of the second half, Matt Asiata out-touched Jerick McKinnon 7-3 against the Packers in Week 2. Both are worth a speculative add. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:50 am

Reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain, Wilson was not his normal self in the Week 2 loss to the Rams.

Jerry Jones said after the game he and the coaches are not worried about Elliott's fumbles, but the benching suggests otherwise.

    Advice: Foster suffered a groin injury early in the Week 2 loss to the Patriots and did not return. The team should know more after a Monday MRI. With Foster on the shelf at least a week and likely more, the Dolphins will turn to a committee headed by Jay Ajayi. Ajayi has not done much to engender goodwill among the fantasy community and lost a fumble against the Pats, but he does get the Browns this week. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 5:09 am

    Advice: "He might miss a week. I don't know if he will or not," Zimmer said. "Whatever it was has calmed down now, so we'll see." Peterson reportedly has some ligament damage, but it sounds like he is dealing with just a sprain. Considering how bad the injury looked when he was hobbling into the locker room, a sprain might be the best possible outcome. He still could miss a few games, but it looks more and more like Peterson will be back this year. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 5:05 am

  • Report: Peterson (knee) has ligament damage
    A source told Bleacher Report's Jason Cole that Adrian Peterson has some ligament damage in his right knee.

    Advice: Cole says "there is confidence he'll play again this year," but Peterson is likely staring at a multi-week absence. USA Today's Tom Pelissero reported Peterson "didn't have that much swelling" and he is able to extend his leg. It sounds like Peterson may have a sprained MCL or something similar. The Vikings were struggling mightily to run the ball before Peterson's injury and had a ton of success in the passing game when he went out. We would not be surprised if Minnesota became more of a pass-oriented team going forward. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 10:38 pm

Rawls was seen trying to stretch himself out on the sideline, and there never seemed to be much worry, even though Rawls didn't return to the game after losing seven total yards on seven carries. Rawls should be fine for Week 3 against the 49ers, but he looked bad Sunday, while Christine Michael averaged 6.0 YPC and outplayed Rawls for the second week in a row to begin the season. Rawls shouldn't be handed the workhorse job. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 5:17 pm

    Advice: Once again, Brown was a distant third behind Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. He got out-targeted by Darren Fells, and watched Jaron Brown score a 51-yard touchdown. Brown has shown the potential to be an elite playmaker, but he simply doesn't have a fantasy viable role right now. He's caught two passes on seven targets through two games. He remains worth stashing in 12-team leagues because of his upside, but won't be startable against the Bills in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 4:56 pm

    Russell Wilson completed 22-of-35 passes for 254 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions in the Seahawks' 9-3, Week 2 loss to the Rams.

    Advice: He rushed for 14 yards on five attempts, but Wilson was clearly limited by his ankle injury. Wilson had his ankles heavily taped, and FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Wilson is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Wilson delivered a couple good deep balls to Tyler Lockett, picking up 35 and 53 yards on them, but that was about it. The Rams' front four was living in the Seahawks' backfield most of the afternoon, sacking Wilson two times and hitting him a number of times.

  • Cowboys not worried about Elliott's fumbles
    Owner Jerry Jones said he and the Cowboys' coaches have no concerns about Ezekiel Elliott's fumbles.

    Advice: It's been a rough start for the No. 4 overall pick. Through two games, he's managed just 134 yards on 41 carries (3.27 YPC) but has saved his fantasy days with three total touchdowns. Elliott fumbled twice in Week 2, and was vultured by Alfred Morris for a short touchdown. Morris received more carries late in the game after Elliott's fumbles, so it's fair to wonder if he'll get more chances moving forward.

    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. He’ll be an upside WR3 and possibly even a back-end WR2 next time out against the Falcons. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 2:37 pm

    Kelvin Benjamin caught 7-of-9 targets for 108 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 2 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Benjamin was a non-factor in the first half, managing one target. He blew up for six of his seven catches and both touchdowns in the final two quarters, taking advantage of a mismatch against Jimmie Ward in the red-zone. Benjamin came through multiple times on third down for the Panthers, including a highlight one-handed catch in traffic that set up his first TD. He has 29 percent of Carolina's targets through two games and has reestablished himself as the clear No. 1 option. Benjamin gets a Vikings defense that could be without CB Xavier Rhodes in Week 3.

Newton connected with Kelvin Benjamin on two of his scores, and had deep TDs to Greg Olsen and Devin Funchess. He wasn't a huge factor in the run game, adding 37 yards on six carries. Newton passed Jake Delhomme as Carolina's all-time leader in pass touchdowns. Even in a tough matchup, Newton is a top-five quarterback play against Minnesota in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:55 pm

Bryant may continue to struggle with consistency with rookie Dak Prescott under center, however. He does have a terrific matchup in Week 3 against the Bears.
