  • Decker (hamstring) 'on pace' for Monday night
    According to ESPN New York, Eric Decker (hamstring) remains "on pace" to play in Monday night's game against the Bears despite missing Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday he's "confident" Decker "will be ready ... but I should say I guess I'm hopeful that (Decker) will play." Decker may get in very little practice time ahead of Monday night's game, but the extra day to prepare should help. Although Decker has been a WR2 to this point, he should be treated more along the lines of a WR3 option this week due to the injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Preston Parker to be Giants 3rd receiver
    Preston Parker is expected to take over as the Giants' third receiver after Jerrel Jernigan's year-ending foot injury.

    Advice: The G-Men are turning to journeyman slot-receiver type Parker over UDFA Corey Washington. Parker returns punts, so perhaps he now has some value in return-yardage league. Parker will be the No. 5 option in New York's passing game, behind Larry Donnell, Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, and Rashad Jennings. Rotoworld.com

The Jaguars offensive line is playing like a bottom-five unit, the box is getting stacked because of Chad Henne's ineptitude, Gerhart's athleticism has been sapped by an ankle issue and the Jags aren't sustaining drives into the red zone. Through two games, he's rushed 25 times 50 yards (2.0 YPC) with no touchdowns. The good news is that Gerhart remains the clear-cut three-down back and gets to face the Colts at home next week.

    Toby Gerhart (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 2.

    Advice: Gerhart missed some snaps with the ankle tweak in last week's loss to the Eagles, but appears to be all systems go for Sunday's clash with the Redskins. It's an above-average matchup for Gerhart. Washington did defend Arian Foster well on Opening Day, but lost NT Barry Cofield (ankle) in the process. Rotoworld.com

  • Ben Tate (knee) targeting Week 5 for return?
    Ben Tate (knee) hinted Friday that he's targeting after the Browns' Week 4 bye for his return.

    Advice: The Browns play the Saints and Ravens in their next two games, where the fort will be held down by Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell. After their Week 4 bye, they face the Titans in Week 5. Whether Tate regains clear-feature back duties will likely depend on the performances of West and Crowell in Weeks 2 and 3. The Browns had markered in Tate as their every-down back to open the year. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Foster's health is a long-term question mark, but his ribs "injury" is a nonissue. Ticketed for some of the league's heaviest workloads, Foster is a locked-in RB1. Rotoworld.com

    Toby Gerhart (ankle) confirmed he expects to play in Sunday's game against the Redskins.

    Advice: He was officially limited in Thursday's practice. Gerhart thought he suffered a severe injury when Fletcher Cox tackled him from behind in Week 1, but he escaped with a sprain. He's going to get some work in during Thursday's practice, a great sign that he'll be ready to rock Sunday. The Redskins will be playing without starting nose tackle Barry Cofield. Rotoworld.com

  • McCluster has no idea how many reps he'll get
    Dexter McCluster said his weekly carry count could range anywhere from two to 20.

    Advice: McCluster is exaggerating some here, but his point is that the Titans running backs don't even know how much they'll be used each week. In Week 1, starting two-down back Shonn Greene led the way with 15 carries and 32 snaps, while McCluster was next with nine carries on 19 snaps. Leon Washington added 18 snaps and Bishop Sankey got 10. "It's just kind of all how the game unfolds. It's how the game comes," McCluster said. The committee approach here keeps ceilings capped even in a dream matchup like Sunday's with the Cowboys. Rotoworld.com

  • Arian Foster: Heavy workloads here to stay
    Arian Foster said the heavy workload he saw in Week 1 is here to stay.

    Advice: Foster racked up 27 carries and two catches as the Texans grinded through the Redskins in Week 1. New coach Bill O'Brien is something of a rare breed these days as he has no interest in any kind committee in the backfield. "He said that all offseason, and (it's) not lip service," Foster said. "That's what he wants to do." Arian is going to pile up touches in a cake matchup at Oakland Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Gronkowski didn't have any setbacks in Week 1, but the Patriots aren't ready to clear him for full practice. He played on 38-of-86 offensive snaps Sunday and could continue to be used in mostly red-zone and third down situations. Gronk remains locked in as a TE1 for this week's matchup with the Vikings.

    Toby Gerhart (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: The Jaguars are likely just playing it safe with Gerhart. He sprained his ankle against the Eagles, but later returned. Coach Gus Bradley already said he expects Gerhart to be limited in practice this week. We'd be surprised if he didn't play against the Redskins. Gerhart will be a solid RB2 option. Rotoworld.com

  • Ben Tate (knee) 'definitely out' for Week 2
    Coach Mike Pettine confirmed Ben Tate (knee) is "definitely out" for Week 2 against the Saints.

    Advice: Tate is dealing with a sprained knee and is considered week-to-week. Pettine says rookies Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell will carry the load against the Saints. New Orleans fielded a top-four overall defense in 2013, but finished 19th against the run. The Saints allowed 123 yards on the ground to the Falcons in Week 1. West is an intriguing RB2 option behind an underrated offensive line. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Ben Tate (knee) to miss 2-4 weeks
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ben Tate will "likely" miss 2-4 weeks with a sprained knee.

    Advice: Per RapSheet, the tentative timeline for Tate is "depending on how he heals." Fantasy drafters of Tate knew the risk going in, based on his extensive injury history with the Texans. They should still keep Tate plastered to fantasy benches as an injured RB4. Rapoport says to expect to see Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell carrying the Browns' backfield in Tate's absence. While West had 100 yards on 16 carries in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh, Crowell ripped off 32 yards and two touchdowns on five runs. That usage suggests West is the better waiver target, although Crowell should definitely also be owned. Rotoworld.com

  • Ben Tate says knee injury is not that serious
    Responding to a fan on Twitter, Ben Tate said his knee injury is "nothing that serious."

    Advice: We don't typically like to post injury updates directly from players as they're usually overly optimistic. But the Browns have been extremely tight-lipped on the status of both Tate and Jordan Cameron (shoulder), so we'll take what we can get. "I will be ok thanks for asking," was the rest of Tate's response. We still don't know if he'll be ready for Sunday's Week 2 game against the Saints, making waiver claims a dicey scenario. Terrance West is Tate's direct backup and Isaiah Crowell is the No. 3. Rotoworld.com

    Jonathan Dwyer rushed for 20 yards on seven carries in Arizona's Week 1 win over the Chargers.

    Advice: He added two catches for eight yards. Dwyer entered the game on the second offensive play. But with Andre Ellington (foot) healthy enough, Dwyer was merely a change-of-pace. Dwyer will only be relevant if Ellington misses time. Rotoworld.com

  • Joique Bell totals 56 yards, TD in Week 1 win
    Joique Bell rushed for 51 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries in the Lions' Week 1 victory over the Giants on Monday night.

    Advice: He caught his lone target for five yards. Just as many suspected following Jim Caldwell's hire, Bell was the dominant ball carrier for Detroit, while Reggie Bush mainly worked as a scatback. Bell battled a knee problem during the spring, but had a promising opener even if the stats don't jump off the page. This offense can support two backs. Bell and Bush will be weekly mid-range RB2 options. They have a tough date on the road in Carolina next week. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Pettine also had no update on Jordan Cameron (shoulder). We may have to wait for Wednesday's injury report to get further word on either player. Both left Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh and did not return. Speaking very generally, players who leave a game for good don't typically play the following week. Rotoworld.com

  • Toby Gerhart day-to-day with sprained ankle
    Coach Gus Bradley said Toby Gerhart has a sprained ankle and will be limited in practice this week.

    Advice: Gerhart owners got a scare early in the Jaguars' Week 1 loss to the Eagles when he was dragged down from behind by DE Fletcher Cox. Expect plenty of updates on Gerhart this week, but he should be fine as an RB2 for the Week 2 tilt with the Redskins. The Jags' offensive line needs to open up some running lanes. Rotoworld.com

  • Gronkowski plays 44 percent of Week 1 snaps
    Rob Gronkowski played 38-of-86 (44 percent) of the offensive snaps in the Patriots' Week 1 loss to the Dolphins.

    Advice: Gronkowski still managed to lead the team with 11 targets in the passing game, securing four of them for 40 yards and a score. He didn't play much on early downs, instead coming onto the field for all third downs and red-zone situations. Gronk also didn't look to be 100 percent, which is to be expected. Even if he remains "limited" in games, Gronkowski is a must-start TD scorer. Rotoworld.com
