  • Tony Romo back at Cowboys practice Thursday
    Tony Romo (back) returned to Cowboys practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Romo sat out Wednesday with "tightness" in his surgically-repaired back, but it's not a concern for his Week 3 status. Still rounding into form as the Cowboys go run heavy, Romo is on the QB1 borderline against the Rams. Rotoworld.com

  • Carson Palmer only able to throw a little
    Carson Palmer (shoulder) has only been able to throw a little this week.

    Advice: Palmer is waiting for the nerve in his throwing shoulder to "fire." He's tried ice, massage, acupuncture and dry needling without much success. At this point, it doesn't sound like Palmer will have much arm strength even if he can suit up against the 49ers Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Tannehill blames footwork for inaccuracy
    Ryan Tannehill is blaming poor footwork for an inaccurate start to the season.

    Advice: Even a lot of Tannehill's completions haven't been in the ideal spot. Through two games, he ranks 29th in completion percentage (60.5) and 29th in passer rating (76.1). It's a troubling step back for a player that appeared poised to take the next step in his third NFL season. The good news is that footwork is correctable, and Tannehill gets to face a bad Chiefs secondary at home on Sunday. He's still firmly in the QB2 conversation. Rotoworld.com

    Tony Romo (back) is fully expected to practice Thursday.

    Advice: Romo sat out Wednesday's session due to "tightness" in his surgically-repaired back. He spent that time in the weight room doing core strength and back exercises, but did not even require an MRI. It's no reason for owners to panic. Rotoworld.com

    Carson Palmer (shoulder) was limited in Cardinals practice Wednesday.

    Advice: This doesn't really help us guess Palmer's status because he was reported at "limited" in practice all last week, but beat writers said he didn't even throw. And he was inactive against the Giants. Palmer's availability for Week 3 is entirely up in the air. Drew Stanton could be in line for another start. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Davis gets bulk of Rams QB reps Wed.
    The St. Louis Post Dispatch's Jim Thomas reports Austin Davis got the "lion's share" of the Rams' first-team quarterback reps at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Shaun Hill (thigh) participated in individual drills and remains day-to-day. Case Keenum received a couple of reps with the starters in 11-on-11 drills. But Austin Davis is the clear favorite to start against the Cowboys after leading the Rams to a 19-17 win over the Bucs last Sunday. The Rams will pound the ball on the ground and let Davis "manage" the game with short passes. He's a low-end QB2/3. Rotoworld.com

    Coach Bruce Arians said Carson Palmer (shoulder) has a "nerve that just won't fire," and it "could be a day, or it could be a month" before he returns to the lineup.

    Advice: It gels with what Arians said Monday. Palmer is anywhere from day-to-day to week-to-week. Consider him highly questionable for Week 3 against the 49ers at 4:05 PM ET. Drew Stanton will continue to start for however long Palmer is out. Stanton is merely a game manager with accuracy issues. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Romo struggling with downfield throws
    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 fewer 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

    Tom Brady is 3-of-20 on passes of that travel 15 yards or more this season.

    Advice: Brady was 2-of-18 looking down the field in Week 1 and then barely even attempted to push the ball to the intermediate range in Week 2. It reminds of last season, when the 37-year-old struggled with both accuracy and zip on longer passes. If Brady can't shred the Raiders at home in Week 3, we'll have some real concerns. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Foles lets Sproles do the work on MNF
    Nick Foles completed 21-of-37 passes for 331 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Eagles' Monday night, Week 2 win over the Colts.

    Advice: The stat line is deceiving. Foles couldn't complete anything downfield outside of a couple shots to Zach Ertz. Instead, he simply dumped balls off to Darren Sproles and LeSean McCoy and let them do all the dirty work. Foles just isn't seeing the field like he did in 2013. He'd be a bigger story if the Eagles hadn't been able to overcome 14-point halftime deficits in back-to-back weeks. He missed a wide-open Jeremy Maclin in the end zone Monday, and threw another pass well behind Ertz. Foles will remain on the QB1 map next week vs. Washington. Rotoworld.com

    Andrew Luck completed 20-of-34 passes for 172 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Colts' 30-27, Week 2 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

    Advice: Luck saved his night with the three touchdowns, but he could have easily tossed three or four more interceptions. And the interception he did throw shouldn't have been one, as T.Y. Hilton was completely mugged on the play. The 5.1 YPA average is nearly two yards off his career mark. OC Pep Hamilton continues to be the problem in Indy. He consistently dialed up runs to Trent Richardson, who was having an okay night, but not a good enough one to warrant 22 touches. When Luck was asked to throw, it was short passes. The Colts travel to Jacksonville in Week 3. Luck is an obvious QB1 in a favorable matchup. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Palmer has a bruised nerve in his shoulder. "Anytime you're dealing with nerves, you're concerned," Arians said, before adding it's "just a bruised nerve that's being ornery." Palmer himself said he doesn't know when he'll be back. For now, he should be considered week to week, and highly questionable for Week 3. Palmer could end up a game-time decision for Sunday's 4:05ET tilt with the 49ers. 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.

    Robert Griffin III (dislocated ankle) is without a timeline for a return.

    Advice: "We'll know in a few more weeks to know how long he'll be out," coach Jay Gruden said Monday. The Redskins have no plans to place Griffin on I.R., and are "optimistic" he'll return this season. Gruden stopped well short of guaranteeing RGIII would be returning to his starting job, however. "We'll cross that bridge when it comes," Gruden said of Griffin and Kirk Cousins. Although it's entirely possible Cousins face-plants during Griffin's absence, RGIII is droppable in 10-12 team fantasy leagues. He appears likely to miss at least six weeks. Rotoworld.com

  • RG3's dislocated ankle could cost him 6-8 wks
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Robert Griffin III's ankle dislocation could still shelve him 6-8 weeks despite the fact that Monday's MRI revealed no fracture.

    Advice: Initial reports had the timetable at 4-5 weeks. Griffin's absence will simply depend on how quickly he recovers. Whether he regains his starting job upon return is entirely unclear, as well. Fantasy owners can freely drop Griffin in 10- and 12-team leagues. He was playing poorly before the injury, and is now in danger of losing the first-team quarterback job outright to Kirk Cousins. Rotoworld.com

    Jaguars coach Gus Bradley confirmed Monday the team will stick with Chad Henne at quarterback for Week 3 against the Colts.

    Advice: According to reporter Ryan O'Halloran, however, Bradley "took 30 seconds" to answer the question at Monday's press conference. Henne took ten sacks in Sunday's loss to Washington and was victimized on several drops, including on a would-be 80-yard touchdown bomb to UDFA receiver Allen Hurns. Still, signs point to the Jaguars beginning to waffle on their pre-season pledge to keep rookie Blake Bortles plastered to the bench. If the Jags get blown out again versus Indianapolis in Week 3, it could be Bortles time. Rotoworld.com

It's fantastic news for his outlook, as there seems to be a real chance now that he can return in 4-5 weeks. Multiple reports and on-field signs over the last couple months have shown that new coach Jay Gruden appears to prefer Kirk Cousins.

  • 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

    Coach Gus Bradley did not rule out starting Blake Bortles in next week's game vs. the Colts.

    Advice: When asked directly if he'll consider throwing Bortles into the fire in Week 3, Bradley gave some coachspeak instead of saying no. "Right now, we've got a lot of things we need to correct," he said. "We'll take a look at that all on film." The Redskins crowded the box against Chad Henne on Sunday, giving up zero lanes in the run game and sacking him 10 times. The only reason not to make the move to Bortles at this point is protection concerns. We know he'll give the Jags a better chance to win games than Henne. Rotoworld.com

    Colin Kaepernick completed 21-of-34 passes for 248 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in Sunday night's loss to the Bears.

    Advice: He also lost a fumble and took four sacks. Kaepernick had another interception overturned or it would have been an even bigger disaster. His back-to-back picks to Bears CB Kyle Fuller in the fourth quarter cost the 49ers the game. Kaepernick's lone touchdown was a three-yard throw in the flats to Michael Crabtree. The only positive is he managed to come away with 66 rushing yards. With Vernon Davis dealing with an ankle injury, Kaepernick should be avoided for a matchup with the Cardinals in Week 3.

    Advice: It was a tale of two halfs for Cutler. His first two quarters were filled with overthrows and near-interceptions. He bounced back with three touchdowns in the second half, which were set up by Colin Kaepernick's interceptions. Cutler hooked up with Brandon Marshall on three of his scores, and hit Martellus Bennett on a fade in the fourth quarter. Cutler needs to be in fantasy lineups for a matchup with the Jets in Week 3.

His interception was a horrible decision that was picked off by Rodney McLeod at the Rams' two-yard line. Through two games, McCown is looking like the career journeyman he was before 2013.

He moved the offense down the field and didn't make any mistakes, hooking up with Brian Quick seven times for 74 yards.

Newton did take five sacks and spent much of the second half hobbling around on his surgically repaired ankle. Derek Anderson warmed up at one point, but Cam stayed in the game like a warrior.

    Advice: That's a pitiful 5.1 YPA average. Hoyer didn't do anything to help the Browns win this one; the Cleveland defense and running game earned coach Mike Pettine his first win. Hoyer missed badly on literally all of his throws down field, and has zero arm strength on passes outside the numbers.

    Advice: The Saints' outdoor road struggles continue. Brees and the offense got off to an extremely slow start, as they totaled just 14 yards on 12 first-quarter plays. The only thing that worked for Brees was his connection with Jimmy Graham, whom he hooked up with for both touchdowns. Brees' interception was a back-breaking 62-yard pick-six before halftime to put the Browns up 16-3. Brees should get back on track next week at home against the Vikings. Rotoworld.com

  • Drew Stanton leads Cardinals to Week 2 win
    Backup QB Drew Stanton completed 14-of-29 throws for 167 yards and no touchdowns in the Cardinals' Week 2 win over the Giants.

    Advice: Getting the nod in place of Carson Palmer (arm), Stanton was largely ineffective but got a big boost from Arizona's defense and special teams, where Ted Ginn ripped off a 71-yard punt return. We suspect Palmer will return next week against the 49ers, and Stanton only got the nod with the Cardinals realizing it's a long season. Either way, this performance was not an indication that the Cards have a great backup. Michael Floyd only had 19 yards, and John Brown 28. Larry Fitzgerald had six catches for 51 yards. Rotoworld.com

Meanwhile, Kirk Cousins came on in relief and shined by going 22-of-33 for 250 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions as the Redskins won 41-10. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Romo has quiet afternoon in win
    Tony Romo completed 19-of-29 passes for 176 yards and one touchdown in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Titans.

    Advice: Romo took a backseat as the Cowboys rode DeMarco Murray and the running game. Thankfully, he made a habit of targeting Dez Bryant, looking his way 14 times, and finding him for 10 catches and a touchdown. Romo still appeared rusty after his limited offseason, often missing low. Either way, it was a major improvement on his Week 1 debacle, and an altogether encouraging afternoon. He has a strong Week 3 matchup in the inept Rams. 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

That performance left Brady with not much to do, and he operated in more of a game-manager role all game long. Brady has 398 yards and two touchdowns through two games this season.

It's a serious ding to the outlooks of both Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald, as athletic yet inaccurate backup Drew Stanton hasn't started a game since 2010.

He did take some check-downs that ended up being pretty sizable plays for us." It's notable because in the past Stafford had been known to force the ball to Calvin Johnson. He didn't do that Monday. Stafford completed 68.8 percent of his passes, a feat he'd accomplished just twice in his previous 32 starts.

    Advice: He added a five-yard rushing touchdown on the ground. One of the goals of the new coaching staff was to make Stafford more efficient. All signs are positive after one game. Stafford entered 2014 with a 59.5 career completion percentage; he completed 68.8 percent of his passes Monday. Stafford went through his progressions and was his usual self, making some ridiculous throws thanks to his rocket arm. While moving away from his receiver, Stafford flicked a 16-yard touchdown pass into the back of the end zone to Calvin Johnson. (Both scores went to Megatron.)
