  • Cam Newton dealing with constant soreness
    Coach Ron Rivera admits Cam Newton is dealing with "constant nagging soreness" in both his ankle and ribs, and he'll do so for the remainder of the season.

    Advice: Newton's current routine is to get treatment every Monday and Tuesday in an effort to get everything calmed down before practice on Wednesday. It's a reminder that Newton is still banged up, and will be until February. He rushed just four times in his Week 2 debut and was sacked five times. Expect Carolina to lean more on Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tobert near the goal line. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike James totals -1 yards in blowout loss
    Mike James rushed four times for four yards in Tampa Bay's Week 3 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: James caught a pass, but lost five yards. James briefly spelled Bobby Rainey after Rainey's first of two lost fumbles, but the Bucs quickly thought better of it. A distant third behind Rainey and Doug Martin, James is off the radar in 12-14 team leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Myers has five-catch night
    Brandon Myers caught 5-of-5 targets for 33 yards in Tampa Bay's 56-14, Week 3 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: We suppose Myers was a highlight on a night where the Bucs suffered one of the worst losses in team history. The barely-there TE2 now has 13 catches for 107 yards through three games. You can make better use of a roster spot in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Levine Toilolo loses fumble in blowout win
    Levine Toilolo caught 2-of-2 targets for 25 yards in Atlanta's Week 3 win over the Bucs, also losing a fumble.

    Advice: Toilolo nearly killed the Falcons' second drive by letting the ball get punched out from behind, but the Falcons got it back after Devin Hester forced a fumble of his own on Mark Barron's return. Toilolo wasn't targeted in the red zone this evening even though Atlanta scored 56 points. Toilolo is Joseph Fauria 2.0 for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com

    Jacquizz Rodgers rushed five times for six yards in Atlanta's Week 3 romp over the Bucs, adding a three-yard reception.

    Advice: On a night where the Falcons scored 56 points, Quizz managed all of nine yards. Rodgers received a carry from the Bucs' five-yard line in the first quarter, but got stuffed for a three-yard loss. Rodgers has proven time and again that he's a replacement-level back, at best, but remains a firm No. 2 in the Falcons' four-man committee. He has no value in 12-14 team leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Antone Smith finds pay dirt in easy win
    Antone Smith rushed four times for 50 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta's Week 3 win over the Bucs, also losing a fumble.

    Advice: Smith's score was one of his patented big plays, as he rushed 38 yards through a tired and miserable Bucs defense to put the Falcons up 56-0 in the fourth quarter. He found the hole, then the edge and was off to the races. Smith's fumble came at the Bucs' one-yard line the end of a shifty 10-yard scamper in the second quarter. Smith has proven time and again he's worthy of more work as a change-of-pace back, but the Falcons don't appear ready to give it to him. That keeps him off the radar in 12-14 team leagues.

    Advice: Getting major second-half run in a game the Falcons led 35-0 at halftime, Freeman had a chance to stuff the stat-sheet, but instead got stuffed. His fumble was soft, as he let the ball get tomahawked out from behind. Still a clear No. 4 on the Falcons' running back depth chart, Freeman isn't looking like much of a stash in 12-team re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com

He now has 10 days to get ready for Atlanta's Week 4 trip to Minnesota. A former iron man, White hasn't been anyone's idea of durable over the past two seasons, but is a cinch WR2 whenever he's healthy and playing opposite all-world beast Julio Jones. Rotoworld.com

    Harry Douglas was forced from the Falcons' Week 3 game against the Bucs with a left foot injury.

    Advice: Douglas is technically questionable to return, but it did not look good when he went down. He tried to make it to the sideline before collapsing on the field. He could barely put any weight on his left foot as he headed to the locker room. Even if the injury isn't serious, he won't be returning to a blowout. Douglas was having a nice night in Roddy White's absence before going down, catching 2-of-2 targets for 14 yards and a touchdown. Rotoworld.com

    Roddy White (hamstring) is inactive for Week 3 against the Bucs.

    Advice: The Falcons had intimated all week that White would suit up, but that changed on Thursday afternoon. White should return for Week 4, but the former iron man has now missed four of the Falcons' past 19 games, and played at less than 100 percent in many more. His absence leaves Julio Jones as a target monster, and Harry Douglas as a legitimate WR3. Devin Hester will run deep routes as the Falcons' No. 3 receiver. Also inactive for the Falcons are QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, C James Stone, OT Ryan Schraeder and DT Cliff Matthews. Rotoworld.com

    Vikings released WR Jerome Simpson.

    Advice: Simpson's three-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy was set to end on Monday, but it was revealed Thursday that he was busted on marijuana and alcohol charges in July. Simply stunning immaturity from a 28-year-old receiver who's dealt with various legal issues throughout his NFL career. Simpson is a competent deep threat, but has had trouble staying on the field thanks to his bans. Considering the current climate for NFL troublemakers, he's unlikely to find a new home any time soon.

    Advice: It's quite possible the Chiefs are just trying to confuse the situation for the Dolphins, but reporters present for practice noted that Charles was moving well, and even cutting in position drills. What's clear is that Charles does not have a traditional high-ankle sprain, if he has one at all. For now, he should be considered slightly less than 50-50 to play. Even if Charles did suit up against Miami, it's quite possible he'd be on a snap count. His status should be updated multiple times over the next 24 hours. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Per ESPN's Adam Teicher, Charles participated in warmups, spent a "brief period" being tended to by the team's trainer and then joined position drills. Charles was apparently even "cutting through cones." It would suggest Charles isn't dealing with a high-ankle sprain at all, and that the Chiefs have been misapplying the phrase. There's still more reason to believe Charles will sit than suit up this weekend, but we obviously don't have enough information right now. Charles owners should not count on him being active for Week 3, while Knile Davis owners simply need to sit tight. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Peterson won't be allowed to play until after his child-abuse case is resolved. Florio is saying the case is likely to go to a trial, and therefore wouldn't be over until well after the season. However, Peterson has plenty of incentive to work out a plea deal as soon as possible if it means the NFL will reinstate him. As for 2015, Peterson is owed $12.75 million -- an untenable number for a 30-year-old running back. Rotoworld.com

Now he's staring a monster opportunity in the face as he'll pair with passing back Pierre Thomas for the next month. A powerful, elusive runner that's underrated in the pass game, Robinson is definitely on the flex radar for this week's home game against the shell-shocked Vikings.

    Advice: Fantasy owners of A.P. are left in the dark as they wait for the court's decision. It's worth noting Peterson is a first-time offender with no known criminal background, so it's entirely possible he merely gets a slap on the wrist for punishing his son too harshly. Peterson's first court hearing is not until October 8, but expect his attorneys to push hard for a quick resolution. Matt Asiata needs to be owned everywhere, as does rookie Jerick McKinnon.

    Advice: Instead of dying down, the firestorm has only intensified since the Vikings welcomed back their franchise back, with the NFL looking into the case and the governor of Minnesota calling for AD to be suspended. Although the Vikes are unlikely to release Peterson outright like the Ravens did with Ray Rice, they'll probably do the same math. That would be concluding that the controversy isn't worth it, and suspending AD until his legal situation is resolved. He's less than 50-50 to be active for Week 3. Rotoworld.com

He reportedly woke up "sore" on Monday, but we certainly wouldn't count him out of Week 3 yet. Jackson and the Redskins face the team that cut him this offseason, the Eagles. Rotoworld.com

  • Jamaal Charles' ankle MRI was negative
    A source confirms to PFT that Sunday X-rays on Jamaal Charles' ankle were negative.

    Advice: As reported Sunday, it's a sprain that knocked Charles out of Sunday's loss to the Broncos. The severity of that sprain will be known after further testing Monday. Talented backup Knile Davis came on to total 105 yards and two touchdowns on 28 touches in relief. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Charles' timeline will be based on how he feels and how he can move on it. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Vikings won't release Adrian Peterson
    A source tells the New York Post that the Vikings will not release Adrian Peterson.

    Advice: The Post has sources on this story because Minnesota's ownership group is New Jersey-based. The Vikings are expected to make an announcement regarding Peterson's status at some point Monday and it's possible they'll choose to suspend him even before the NFL steps in. They could also try to trade Peterson. Note that the NFL is expected to review the case under the new domestic violence policy, not the personal conduct policy. First-time offenders of the domestic violence policy get a six-game ban. With Peterson inactive Sunday, Matt Asiata totaled 84 yards and a touchdown on 18 touches as the Vikings lost 30-7 to the Patriots. Rotoworld.com

  • Jamaal Charles' ankle sprain believed 'mild'
    According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, "early indications" are Jamaal Charles' ankle sprain is "mild."

    Advice: The same goes for SS Eric Berry, who like Charles exited Sunday's loss to Denver and did not return. Per La Canfora, the team is "hopeful neither will miss significant time." Charles is believed to be scheduled for a Monday morning MRI. It does sound like Charles has a shot to play in Week 3 at Miami, but Knile Davis needs to be owned everywhere. The fact that Charles never reentered after the first-quarter injury suggests he was in a lot of pain. Rotoworld.com

    Brandon Myers caught two passes for 33 yards in the Bucs' Week 2 loss to the Rams.

    Advice: Myers saw just the two targets after seeing eight passes come his way in the opener. Myers isn't a big-play threat and is merely a low-upside TE2/3. Rotoworld.com

  • Jamaal Charles diagnosed with sprained ankle
    Coach Andy Reid said Jamaal Charles suffered a sprained ankle in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Denver.

    Advice: It must be a pretty good sprain, as Charles left in the first quarter and was ruled out for the day shortly thereafter. Talented backup Knile Davis came on to total 105 yards and two touchdowns on 28 touches. Consider Charles very questionable for Week 3 at Miami as we await the results of a Monday morning MRI.

    Advice: Clay led Miami in receptions and tied for a team-high eight targets. He didn't make his first catch until the third quarter, and was in and out of the game due to his knee injury. Clay will remain on the TE1 borderline for Week 3 against the Chiefs. Rotoworld.com

    Devonta Freeman caught 2-of-4 targets for 22 yards in Atlanta's Week 2 loss to the Bengals, but was held without a rushing attempt.

    Advice: The Falcons scaled back their committee, only giving carries to Steven Jackson and Jacquizz Rodgers. Freeman has done all he can to prove he's deserving of a bigger role, but Atlanta isn't ready to give it to him. He's little more than a deep stash in 12-14 team leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Douglas' seven looks were third behind Julio Jones and Roddy White, which is how the Falcons hope to draw it up on a weekly basis. Douglas is firmly established as a low-end WR3, one who skews more toward WR4 status in non-PPR leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Khiry Robinson rushed for 31 yards on eight carries in the Saints' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: Robinson continues to play behind Mark Ingram, who is running the ball with the best of them right now. Robinson gives Ingram breathers and is really nothing more than a RB3/4 who is ultra touchdown-dependent. He'll need Ingram to go down with an injury to have any real meaningful work. Rotoworld.com

  • Cam Newton totals 300 yards in win over Lions
    Cam Newton completed 22-of-34 throws for 281 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 19 yards in the Panthers' Week 2 win over the Lions.

    Advice: He scrambled four times and added a two-point conversion toss to Jerricho Cotchery for a productive fantasy game, albeit not a huge one. 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. Newton's fantasy day could have been much bigger if not for three drops by Kelvin Benjamin. Cam will be a high-ceiling QB1 in Week 3 against the Steelers' swiss cheese defense. Rotoworld.com

  • Jamaal Charles done for day with ankle injury
    Jamaal Charles exited Sunday's Week 2 game against the Broncos in the first quarter with a left ankle injury and will not return.

    Advice: Charles hobbled to the training table in the first quarter before making his way to the locker room. He didn't need a cart, but Charles could be dealing with a sprain. Knile Davis has been filling in admirably for Charles, tallying 76 yards and one touchdown on 17 touches with over 9:00 left in the first quarter. Charles should be considered highly questionable for Week 3. Davis would immediately enter into the RB1 conversation as the offensive centerpiece. Rotoworld.com

It's an injury D-Jax has battled in the past, and sounds similar to the one that caused Jordan Cameron to sit out Sunday. Jackson has been ruled out for the day as the Redskins pummel the Jags and is listed as day to day going forward. Rotoworld.com

    DeSean Jackson left Sunday's game against the Jaguars in the first quarter with a left shoulder injury and will not return.

    Advice: Jackson was trying to haul in a deep ball from Kirk Cousins when Jaguars S Josh Evans came across his body. Jackson ended up awkwardly falling with a ton of weight on his left elbow and shoulder. The former Eagle walked to the locker room under his own power, where he joins Robert Griffin (ankle). Andre Roberts has taken Jackson's spot as an every-down player opposite Pierre Garcon. Rotoworld.com

It is the logical conclusion after coach Andy Reid called it "negligence" that Charles only saw 11 touches Week 1. Charles will be force fed the ball against Denver, and remains an elite RB1 despite the tough matchup. Rotoworld.com

  • Jackson will get more opportunites downfield?
    ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim believes DeSean Jackson will get "more opportunities to go downfield" against the Jaguars Week 2.

    Advice: According to Pro Football Focus, Jackson was targeted more than 10-yards downfield only once Week 1. Keim attributes the lack of downfield attempts to the large cushion Texans' corners were giving Jackson and Pierre Garcon, and expects the Redskins to be much more aggressive against the Jaguars. Jackson is a high-upside WR2/3 this week. Rotoworld.com

    One Redskins player told beat writer John Keim that the team expects DeSean Jackson to have a "huge" Week 2 against the Jaguars.

    Advice: "Huge day," the player said. "Huge. If it goes the way we think in the run game." The Redskins are going to build off Alfred Morris and the play-action pass game. Working in their favor is that top CB Dwayne Gratz has been banged up at practice this week, and SS Johnathan Cyprien (concussion) is likely to sit out. After a quiet Week 1, Jackson is a high-upside WR2/3 play at home. Rotoworld.com
