    Advice: Vernon Davis (ankle) and Vance McDonald (knee) remain questionable, but seem likely to be held out after the 49ers promoted TE Asante Cleveland from the practice squad. Carrier had 41 yards on three catches filling in last week and is worth a look as a streaming option. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: We tentatively expect Pierce to play after he practiced fully on Friday, but he is still listed as questionable, and the Toussaint move was an eyebrow raiser. If Pierce were inactive or aggravated the injury early Sunday against the Browns, the Ravens would figure to give Justin Forsett lead back work with rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro handling increased playing time off the bench.

  • Jeffery plays through injury Sunday night
    Alshon Jeffery secured 3-of-6 targets for 47 yards in Sunday night's Week 2 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Jeffery was clearly playing injured, and had just one catch for four yards at half. His only notable play was a 29-yard fade route he caught over 49ers CB Chris Culliver. With the Bears playing on Monday night, Jeffery will have an extra day to get healthy for Week 3. Rotoworld.com

    Brandon Marshall had five catches for 48 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday night's win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Marshall had arguably the best catch of the season on a one-handed 17-yard touchdown over 49ers CB Jimmy Ward at the end of the first half. All three of his scores came against Ward. He tied for the team lead with eight targets and played the entire game despite his questionable status. Marshall has 13 catches for 119 yards and four touchdowns through two weeks. Rotoworld.com

  • McFadden gets 14 touches against Texans
    Darren McFadden managed 37 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries and caught two passes for 31 yards in the Raiders' Week 2 loss to Houston.

    Advice: Although OC Greg Olson promised late in the week to involve Latavius Murray, the sophomore runner only touched the ball once aside from kickoff returns, gaining six yards on his lone carry. McFadden was the every-down back and struggled, having two longer runs called back by penalties at the line of scrimmage and failing to create any of his own running room. Ultimately, neither DMC nor Murray showed any signs of proving a superior option to Maurice Jones-Drew (hand), who was inactive on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Antonio Gates scores three TDs in upset win
    Antonio Gates caught 7-of-7 targets for 96 yards and three touchdowns in San Diego's Week 2 win over the Seahawks.

    Advice: Gates' vise-like mitts were the reason the Chargers were able to play keep away and upend the defending champs. Two of his scoring grabs came on third down, while the third came on a 2nd-and-20. Gates' third TD was a one-handed circus catch perhaps 3-4 other players in the NFL are capable of making. Even at 34, his hands are just unfathomably strong. Gates' big day came as backup Ladarius Green received zero targets. Whatever questions there were at tight end for the Chargers have been answered. Gates is still far and away No. 1, with Green more of an upside dream than actual fantasy option. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Hopkins' TD came on a back-shoulder throw by Ryan Fitzpatrick on the right side of the end zone. The sophomore wideout has two touchdowns through two games, but that's an unsustainable pace, and Hopkins' usage has been that of no more than a lower-end WR3. He'll be a dicey fantasy play against the Giants next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Beat writer guesses one of Bear WRs will play
    Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune's "hunch" is that one of the Bears' starting wide receivers plays Sunday night against the 49ers, but doesn't provide a guess as to whom it will be.

    Advice: We would add however, that ESPN's Adam Schefter stated Sunday he would be "really" surprised if Alshon Jeffery (hamstring, questionable) played. Our guess all along has been that Brandon Marshall (ankle, questionable) had a better shot of suiting up against San Francisco, but obviously there were never and are still never any guarantees. Just from reading tea leaves, we'd advise fantasy owners to sit tight with Marshall while handcuffing him with Santonio Holmes. Jeffery owners should explore early-game alternatives. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: They're both likely to be game-time decisions. Jeffery got in a limited practice Friday, while Marshall missed the entire work week. If neither can go, Santonio Holmes will fill the No. 1 receiver hole for Jay Cutler and become an intriguing WR3 option. Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte would also play expanded roles. Rotoworld.com

    Bernard Pierce got the start in Baltimore's Week 2 win over the Steelers, rushing 22 times for 96 yards with a seven-yard reception.

    Advice: Pierce was clearly the leader of the Ravens' committee, starting over Justin Forsett and touching the ball on seven of Baltimore's first nine plays. He didn't do a whole heck of a lot before garbage time, however, notching 20 of his yards on two meaningless final carries with the Ravens winning 26-6 with less than two minutes remaining. Pierce got the rock four times inside the Steelers' five-yard line, but failed to find the end zone. With that pessimism out of the way, Pierce will undoubtedly start against the Browns in Week 3. He'll be on the RB2 borderline, and a viable FLEX play. Rotoworld.com
