  • CB Claiborne limiting damage
    Dallas CB Morris Claiborne leads NFL cornerbacks in lowest completion percentage when targeted.

    Advice: In 24 targets, Claiborne has allowed nine catches for 90 yards and a 37.5 completion percentage from opposing quarterbacks. While Claiborne has held his own, the Dallas pass defense still ranks 23rd among NFL defenses through three weeks and has given up consecutive 300+ passing yard performances. The Cowboys D/ST will be a middling Week 4 fantasy option on the road at San Francisco. Rotoworld.com Just now

Garoppolo is still the favorite to start after practicing on a limited basis all week, but his status can't be taken for granted. Rotoworld.com 53 minutes ago

    Advice: Dixon will not play this week, and he will likely be limited even if he returns against Washington Week 5. Once healthy, Dixon should be in something of a timeshare with Terrance West and perhaps Justin Forsett. Dixon is a good bench stash in deeper formats, but he will likely spend most if not all of the season in a committee. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:23 am

    Advice: Langford will be out at least another month, so this is not an immediate concern to Howard's fantasy value. More importantly, Langford was terrible before going down, so Howard could certainly win the starting job outright with good performances the next several weeks.

"You know that if you put the ball in his area, he’s going to go up and he’s going to make a play and he’s going to get it." The veracity of that statement is up for debate, but it is clear Bradford trusts his big tight end.

    Dez Bryant (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Advice: Bryant has no chance of playing at San Francisco, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones likes to create his own realities, and then try to live in them. Daily Slant: With Bryant all but ruled out for Week 4, Cole Beasley could take on an even bigger role, especially with 49ers slot CB Jimmie Ward ruled out already. Ward has graded out as the 49ers top CB through three games (per PFF) and with Beasley running 89% of his snaps out of the slot, he should have a plus match-up all afternoon. He's still cheap across the DFS industry and has seen at least six targets in each game this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:53 pm

    Advice: The Giants are expected to be without both CBs Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and first-rounder Eli Apple due to injuries. It makes sense to have Jenkins trail Diggs any time he's lined up on the outside, with Leon Hall covering Diggs when he's in the slot. Jenkins and Hall have graded out as the GIants' two-best cover corners at Pro Football Focus, both being in the top-20 out of 104 qualifiers.

  • Jamaal Charles (knee) still limited at practice
    Jamaal Charles (knee) remained limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Another day, another limited practice for Charles. ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher said it's "difficult to picture" Charles playing against the Steelers on Sunday night unless he returns to a full practice at some point during the week. Look for Spencer Ware to carry the mail again in Week 4. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:56 pm

    ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets are "concerned" about Eric Decker's shoulder injury.

    Advice: Decker is headed for an MRI after missing Wednesday's practice. Per Cimini, the injury "sounds like it could be serious." Fantasy owners should be prepared to be without Decker this week and maybe much longer. Last week's loss to Kansas City ended Decker's six-game touchdown streak. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:37 pm

    Titans coach Mike Mularkey expects Delanie Walker (hamstring) to play Sunday.

    Advice: Walker was held out of Wednesday's practice. He was close to playing against the Raiders, but didn't show enough in pre-game warmups. It sounds like Walker should miss only one game, though the early DNP isn't a good start. Walker's return is a needed upgrade to a Tennessee offense that was held to one touchdown last week.

    Coach Todd Bowles said Eric Decker aggravated his shoulder injury in the Week 3 loss to the Chiefs, and it's "worse" than it was before the game.

    Advice: Decker didn't practice Wednesday and needs an MRI. This doesn't sound good for his chances of playing Sunday against the Seahawks. If Decker can't go, Quincy Enunwa will be the No. 2 behind Brandon Marshall. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:26 pm

  • Dez has fracture in knee, hopes to play at SF
    Coach Jason Garrett said Dez Bryant has a hairline fracture in his knee, but the Cowboys are hopeful he'll be able to play Week 4 at the 49ers.

    Advice: Garrett called it a "day by day, week by week" thing, so who knows what that means. If we were to simply make an educated guess, we'd say Bryant doesn't play Sunday. Hairline fractures in the fibula, which is at the base of the leg rather than the knee, often require multiple weeks of recovery. Bryant didn't practice Wednesday and will likely be a game-time decision Sunday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:41 am

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Kenneth Dixon (knee) is targeting a Week 5 return.

    Advice: RapSheet riled up the masses with a tweet earlier Wednesday morning that Dixon was returning to practice Wednesday, but he didn't do much of anything besides working out by himself on a side field. Dixon is still recovering from a sprained MCL. Coach John Harbaugh expressed frustration with the running game Wednesday, so Dixon could be given a decent workload as soon as he hits the field. He's worth picking up as a bench-stash flier if you have roster room. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:36 am

Meanwhile, rookie Jacoby Brissett (thumb) replied "oh yeah" when asked if he's feeling in tip-top shape. If the Patriots were to play today, Brissett would likely be the one under center.

    ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Patriots are "hopeful" Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) will both be available for Week 4 against the Bills.

    Advice: Garoppolo almost played against Houston last week and has reportedly made steady progress in his recovery from a sprained AC joint. Meanwhile Brissett wasn't wearing any protective covering on his sprained thumb during the Patriots' media availability on Tuesday. The Pats only need to cobble together one more week of Garoppolo and Brissett before Tom Brady makes his return in Week 5. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:30 am

  • 'Optimism' Rashad Jennings returns this week
    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports there is "optimism" Rashad Jennings (thumb) returns for Week 4.

    Advice: There's optimism and urgency, as the Giants' unsettled backfield has lost Shane Vereen (triceps) for the season. Jennings was a surprising scratch on Sunday, so we'd still consider his status far from certain. He's unsure of his ability to contribute in the passing game, something that will be even more of a necessity with Vereen out. The Giants will issue their first injury report on Thursday.

    Advice: Spoiler alert. Every injured player is evaluated throughout the week. The problem is Jennings' ability to contribute in the passing game, something that won't be magically cleared up after only one absence. There's likely renewed urgency to get Jennings back on the field, however, with the news that Shane Vereen is done for the season.

    Bears fifth-round RB Jordan Howard said he is "comfortable" playing a bigger role.

    Advice: That is good news considering Jeremy Langford was carted off the field Sunday night and spotted in a walking boot after the game. 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 Monday, 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.

    Jordan Howard had nine carries for 45 yards in Week 3 against Dallas.

    Advice: He added four catches for 47 yards on six targets. Howard replaced Jeremy Langford on the third drive and had a 36-yard run on his first carry. He stared the second half over Langford and finished the game after he was carted off with an ankle injury. With Langford struggling even before going down, Howard has potential to run away with the starting job. He’s one of this week’s top waiver pickups. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:46 pm

  • Luck throws for 331 yards, TD, INT in victory
    Andrew Luck completed 24-of-37 passes for 331 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Chargers.

    Advice: Luck -- and the Colts offense as a whole -- was dreadful for much of the day, but he found T.Y. Hilton for a 63-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter with the Colts trailing 22-20. Luck could have had a more productive afternoon, but Dwayne Allen dropped a six-yard score early in the first quarter. His interception was a terrible sideline shot that set the Chargers up at Indy's six-yard line. Luck's shoulder "injury" was a non-issue, as he uncorked 37 attempts.

  • Streak Over: Decker catches 1 for 31 in loss
    Eric Decker caught 1-of-6 targets for 31 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: And with this horrendous performance by the Jets offense, Decker’s streak of 18 consecutive games with 80 yards or a touchdown is snapped. Decker had just one target in the first half, and he did not get his first catch until early in the fourth quarter. Decker was targeted in the end zone in the second half, but Eric Berry went up high to break up the pass. Ryan Fitzpatrick was terrible Sunday, and it will not get any easier with the Seahawks coming to town next week. Still, Decker will be a good bet to start a new streak in that game.

    Kyle Rudolph caught 7-of-10 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Minnesota's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

    Advice: Rudolph was the Vikings' most-targeted pass catcher, and caught their lone touchdown. Rudolph could have had a second score, but committed the rare combo drop/offensive pass interference. A much bigger part of Minnesota's offense this year, Rudolph has 14/166/2 through three games. He's on the TE1 radar in an extremely down year for the position. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:58 pm

    Advice: Sam Bradford entered halftime with 26 yards, torpedoing the Vikings' entire offense. He was a different player after the break, but it was too late for Diggs' compiling odds. Diggs drew three fewer looks than Kyle Rudolph. Diggs is going to be the focal point of the Vikings' offense going forward, but Bradford will make for a few hairy situations.

    Advice: The Chiefs will get RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif back after he sat out last week with an ankle injury, but he will not start.

Some parts of the DFS community got worried when the Colts-Chargers game was pulled off the board at a few Vegas sportsbooks on Wednesday, but it is up at every meaningful sportsbook at the moment.

    Advice: Jay Ajayi, Isaiah Pead and Damien Williams will be left to fight for Drake's scraps on Sunday. All three of those players have been in coach Adam Gase's doghouse at some point this year. Ajayi showed nothing in his season debut against the Patriots last week, plodding his way to 14 yards on five carries while committing a costly fumble.

His thumb injury is obviously more severe than the Giants were letting on. He's week to week.

    Jamaal Charles (knee) is doubtful for Week 3 against the Jets.

    Advice: Coach Andy Reid gave Charles owners some false hope Friday by hinting at a return in Week 3, but his doubtful listing confirms that won't be the case. Spencer Ware is looking at another week atop the Chiefs' running back depth chart. Charles has worked with the first-team offense at practice the past few days after being relegated to scout team duty the previous two weeks. He's getting close. Daily Slant: The backfield will very likely be left to Ware and West yet again, although this is the toughest draw they've faced so far. The Jets haven't allowed much to opposing backs this year, holding them to a shade under 4.0 YPC on 29 totes, and they've struggled to get pressure on opposing QBs. They managed to hit Tyrod Taylor just once (no sacks) last week, setting up Alex Smith and Jeremy Maclin as sneaky GPP plays. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:45 pm

Even if Walker is indeed active versus Oakland, he will be tough to trust as a surefire fantasy TE1. The Titans are very thin in the pass-catcher corps, which is concerning for Marcus Mariota.

We're guessing Jay Ajayi will get the nod, though he might share work with third-round rookie Kenyan Drake. For what it's worth, Ajayi out-touched Drake 9-4 against New England in Week 2.

    Advice: He was held out on Wednesday, "limited" on Thursday, and "full" on Friday, which locks in Decker as a surefire bet to start against the Chiefs. Brandon Marshall (knee) is dinged, which could give Decker an uptick in Week 3 targets. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:10 am

  • Andre Luck fine for Week 3 against Bolts
    Andrew Luck (questionable, shoulder) will play Week 3 against the Chargers.

    Advice: There was never any doubt, even after Luck sat out practice Wednesday. Coach Chuck Pagano said the team is simply going to manage his reps this season. Luck is a top-end QB1 in a plus spot at home. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:54 am

  • Bears OC happy with Howard's practice week
    Bears OC Dowell Loggains said rookie RB Jordan Howard had a good week of practice.

    Advice: Beat writer Brad Biggs believes it could be an indication Howard is ready to start taking carries from No. 1 back Jeremy Langford. Howard showed good burst on his five touches last Monday night, something Langford hasn't displayed much of in his career. Howard also broke a tackle, which is one more than Langford has broken all season on 31 touches. Howard is worthy of a bench stash in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:47 am

  • Charles Clay returns to practice Thursday
    Charles Clay (knee) returned to Bills practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

    Advice: Clay's Sunday status is not in doubt. With Sammy Watkins (foot) looking 50-50, at best, Clay's role should be bigger than usual. He still can't be trusted as more than a mid-range TE2. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:11 pm

  • Andrew Luck (shoulder) limited on Thursday
    Andrew Luck (shoulder) returned to Colts practice Thursday, getting in a "limited" session.

    Advice: The Colts' handling of Luck has been raising more questions than answers, but there's zero doubt about his Week 3 status. Luck is ready to go for a plus matchup with the Chargers in what figures to be a high-scoring game. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:10 pm

  • Eric Decker back at Jets practice on Thursday
    Eric Decker (shoulder) returned to Jets practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

    Advice: Decker is going to be fine for Sunday's trip to Kansas City. He's a mid-range WR2 who will tick higher if Brandon Marshall (knee) can't go. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:38 am

  • Kyle Rudolph limited Wednesday
    Kyle Rudolph (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: It's a new injury for Rudolph, but not anything that should keep him out. Even with Adrian Peterson sidelined, Rudolph is just a touchdown-dependent TE2. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:25 pm

  • Andrew Luck misses practice Wednesday
    Andrew Luck (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: The Colts have been monitoring his practice reps the first few weeks and likely will do so all season. He'll be fine for Sunday's showdown with the Chargers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:59 pm

  • Fins could use full-blown RBBC without Foster
    Coach Adam Gase suggested the Dolphins could use a full-blown running back by committee with Arian Foster (groin) likely out Week 3 against the Browns.

    Advice: Gase added that practice this week will determine who gets the start. With Foster expected to sit, the Dolphins are left with Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake, Damien Williams, and Isaiah Pead. Gase went on to talk about each back's strengths on Wednesday. It's conceivable it could be a straight-up rotational backfield and hot-hand approach. Through two games, the Dolphins have the third-fewest rushing attempts as a team. This is simply a situation to avoid. Ryan Tannehill and the receivers are far more attractive fantasy options Week 3.

  • Bears rookie RB Howard to see increased role?
    The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs "would not be surprised" if Bears fifth-round RB Jordan Howard "sees his role grow soon."

    Advice: Biggs notes Howard impressed in the Bears' preseason finale -- 16 carries for 107 yards and one touchdown with two catches for 33 -- and also provided a brief spark in the Monday night Week 2 loss to the Eagles with gains of eight, 10, and four yards on his three carries. 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. Biggs "would like to see" Howard get 12-plus carries Week 3 at the Cowboys. He may get a chance to pass Langford in short order. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:00 am

  • Charles Clay not practicing Wednesday
    Charles Clay (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been getting Wednesdays off through three weeks. Clay's knee has been an issue for months, if not years, but he'll be fine to play Week 3 vs. Arizona. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:45 am
