  • Donte Moncrief out for Week 4 vs. Jaguars
    Donte Moncrief (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 4 against the Jaguars.

    Advice: There was never any doubt. Moncrief is expected to miss about another month with a broken shoulder blade. Phillip Dorsett will continue to fill in as the No. 2, with Jack Doyle getting more snaps in "12" personnel. Rotoworld.com 43 minutes ago

  • Kelvin Benjamin 'pumped up' for Week 4
    Kelvin Benjamin said he's "pumped up" for Week 4 against the Falcons after not catching a pass in the Week 3 loss to the Vikings.

    Advice: Benjamin expects to do battle most of the day with Falcons LCB Desmond Trufant. In two previous matchups with Trufant, Benjamin got the best of him in one with a 9-109-1 line before Trufant won Round 2, holding Benjamin to 1-9-0 in a 31-point Panthers win where they ran the ball all day. The Panthers have been talking all week how Benjamin is going to be heavily involved. Even in a tough matchup, he needs to be locked into lineups as a WR1/2 that's going to be fed.

    Advice: The second-rounder has 12 catches for 130 yards through four games, putting him on pace for 48/520. That could slacken with Tyler Eifert expected to return for Week 5. Boyd has a weak PPR case. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm

  • Jarvis Landry posts empty 7/61 vs. Bengals
    Jarvis Landry caught 7-of-10 targets for 61 yards in the Dolphins' Week 4 loss to the Bengals.

    Advice: Landry had one catch for seven yards at halftime. The vast majority of his production came with the game out of reach in the fourth quarter. There wasn't much Landry could do on a night where Ryan Tannehill couldn't keep his shoes tied. Landry has caught at least seven passes in all four games, and is on pace for 124 grabs. It's certainly doable in an offense that doesn't have many ideas beyond funneling Landry the ball. He'll be a mid-range WR2 against the Titans in Week 5. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:33 pm

    A.J. Green caught 10-of-12 targets for 173 yards and a touchdown in Cincinnati's Week 4 win over the Dolphins.

    Advice: Going to work against no-names Xavien Howard and Tony Lippett, Green already had eight catches for 123 yards and his score by halftime. He didn't need to do more after the break of a non-competitive game. 3/77/1 of Green's production came on one first quarter drive. He beat perfect coverage from Howard for a 51-yard catch down the right sideline before clownsuiting Lippett on a screen for his score. The 10-catch effort was already Green's second of 2016. He's now averaging eight grabs per game. He should feast again against the Cowboys in Week 5. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:28 pm

"We’re still working on our game plan now and (Pryor's) all over the place," coach Jay Gruden said. "Team defense is gonna have to take him away, somebody different every time possibly."

    Advice: "I want to be here if Hue's going to be here for awhile, because I know this is a building process — and it's not really," Pryor said. "We're right the there. We're competing with everybody, we've just got to put teams away and I'd like to be where Hue's at." Coming off a monster performance where he was used like a 21st century Kordell Stewart, Pryor is locked in as the Browns' No. 1 receiver with Josh Gordon entering rehab. He's an upside WR2 for this weekend's matchup with the Redskins, and a fascinating case going forward. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:42 pm

  • Snead (toe) gets in another limited practice
    Willie Snead (toe) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Snead is on track to return against the Chargers, but it isn't a slam dunk. Unfortunately, the game is at 4:25ET, and the Saints are one of the league's least-honest teams with injury information. Owners can pencil Snead in, but still need to have a back-up plan ready. Daily Slant: With Snead expected to play this weekend, both Michael Thomas and Brandon Coleman aren't viable DFS targets. They combined for 19 targets against Atlanta (Thomas had 11), but they may only receive about half of that assuming Snead is active. Coby Fleener's emergence also diminishes the value of the 3rd WR spot in the Saints offense. Cooks, Snead and Fleener are fine targets against SD, but it's worth noting that the Saints have massive home/road discrepancies. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:44 pm

  • Alshon now listed with knee/hamstring issues
    Alshon Jeffery remained limited in Thursday's practice, getting listed with a hamstring issue in addition to his knee ailment.

    Advice: Jeffery seems to get hurt every other practice. The fact that he was still "limited" — as opposed to DNP — is good news, but we suppose his Week 4 status is back in question. A "limited" session Friday would have Jeffery on track to play against the Lions. Daily Slant: Even if Jeffery is able to play this week, Kevin White is looking like the superior $/pt option. White has seen a higher percentage of workload compared to Jeffery - White has 26.5% of the Chicago targets with Jeffery sitting at 19.6%. Jeffery has still been the more productive of the two, but with White being much cheaper across the DFS industry, he's a very interesting GPP play for a team that has the fewest rushing attempts per game through three weeks.

    The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys have fined Dez Bryant for missing meetings and an MRI related to his knee injury.

    Advice: This explains why the Cowboys took so long to disclose the results of Bryant's MRI, which revealed a hairline fracture in his knee and will likely cost him multiple weeks. Specifically, the injury is a "hairline fracture of the tibial plateau on his right knee."

  • Julio Jones held to 1-16 line in blowout win
    Julio Jones was held to one catch for 16 yards on seven targets in the Falcons' 45-32, Week 3 win over the Saints on Monday night.

    Advice: Jones' seven targets were a team-high, but he and Matt Ryan just couldn't connect on much of anything on a night the Falcons' running backs -- Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman -- combined for 296 yards and four touchdowns dominated on offense. Jones came into the game with calf and ankle ailments, and he wasn't in on every offensive snap, but didn't look to be any worse for the wear. The Saints simply sold out to stop Jones, and the rest of the offense made them pay. Jones will look to bounce back next week at home against the Panthers. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:06 pm

He didn’t get any red-zone looks, with Zach Miller getting both Chicago touchdowns. It’s the third straight game Jeffery has been held out of the end-zone.

    Advice: Austin entered Week 3 with an inconceivable 63 yards on 22 targets, but finally had a productive afternoon. The Rams continued to scheme him the ball, and Austin chewed up some yardage in space. His score was a 43-yarder where he was somehow left on a 1-on-1 island with Chris Conte. The result was predictable. Austin nearly cost the Rams late in the fourth quarter, fielding a kickoff like a punt and setting his team up at the six-yard line. It was a ball that should have been given up on. Going up against the Cardinals' solid secondary in Week 4, Austin will be a low-end WR4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:38 pm

    T.Y. Hilton caught 8-of-11 targets for 174 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' 26-22, Week 3 win over the Chargers.

    Advice: Hilton did battle against Chargers rising star CB Jason Verrett for much of the day, but got the better of him when all was said and done. Hilton made a slick grab deep down the sideline with Verrett draped on him in the third quarter, and then accounted for the game-winning 63-yard score late in the fourth quarter, running right by the defense down the middle. The knee "injury" that had Hilton listed questionable proved to be a non-issue. Hilton will be a WR1/2 next week when the Colts travel to London to face the Jaguars. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:46 pm

    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.

    Advice: Sharpe was mostly a non-factor much of the day. Prior to the Titans' final drive, Sharpe had just one catch for six yards on five targets. His two final-drive catches were big to get the Titans in the red zone, but Tennessee predictably failed to convert for the score. With Delanie Walker (hamstring) out of the lineup, Sharpe's line was a big disappointment.

    Advice: The Cardinals tried numerous deep shots to Floyd early in the game, but connected on none of them and wound up trying to nickel and dime Buffalo's defense underneath, which didn't work. Floyd scored a touchdown in Week 2 and has gone over 60 yards in his other two games, but he has been a disappointment in fantasy early in the season.

    Advice: Benjamin's one and only target came with 2:34 remaining. The Panthers' offense was out of sync all day — no running game, no pass protection — but it was still a baffling effort. Cam Newton attempted 35 passes, targeting Greg Olsen 10 times. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer made it his mission to eliminate Benjamin, and succeeded beyond his wildest imagination.

    Advice: The rookie slot man's yardage totals through three games are 9, 78, 18, and we expect Boyd to continue to deal with inconsistency as a role player in a Bengals offense that is dominated by the running backs and A.J.

Still, PPR owners should be happy Green was able to emerge from this game with 15.7 fantasy points against the Broncos' elite defense.

    Marvin Jones caught 6-of-8 targets for 205 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions' Week 3 loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Jones easily found space down the right sideline all game. He got open against tough coverage for a 38-yard gain in the second quarter, found the soft spot in the Packers’ zone coverage for several chunk gains, stiff-armed a stumbling corner to the ground for a 73-yard touchdown late in the first half, and got the Lions within one score late in the fourth with a 35-yard touchdown. The Lions could not complete the comeback, but it was not for lack of effort from Jones. He blew past his previous career-high in yardage, and an even bigger day bounced off his hands on a diving attempt in the end zone. Jones has proven himself to be the clear No. 1 in Detroit.

  • Willie Snead misses second straight practice
    Updating a previous item, Willie Snead (toe) was held out of Saints practice on Friday.

    Advice: A previous report indicated Snead was suited up, but the Saints' official injury report had Snead not taking part. The Saints will hold another practice on Saturday ahead of Monday night's clash with the Falcons. Although beat writers have not expressed concern about Snead's availability, this remains a situation to closely monitor. The "toe" injury could conceivable indicate that Snead is dealing with a turf-toe sort of injury. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:38 pm

  • Willie Snead returns to Saints practice
    Willie Snead (toe) returned to Saints practice Friday.

    Advice: Snead was given Thursday's practice off, but he should be good to go for Monday night's tilt with Atlanta. Snead has settled in as an every-week WR2. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:21 pm

  • Doctson (Achilles) questionable for Week 3
    Josh Doctson (Achilles) is questionable for Week 3 against the Giants.

    Advice: Dotson has been a limited participant at practice this week. His status for Week 3 has never been in doubt, though the first-round rookie is little more than a role player at this point. Doctson is best viewed as a WR5. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:46 am

  • Alshon (knee) practices, listed as questionable
    Alshon Jeffery (knee) returned to a limited practice on Friday and is questionable for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Coach John Fox said Jeffery is dealing with "knee soreness." Jeffery sat out Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday. It's possible the Bears were just managing his reps. True to form, the perpetually frustrating Jeffery is playing in the Sunday night game this week. We'd expect him to suit up, though fantasy owners would be wise to have a contingency plan in place.

  • Mohamed Sanu returns to full practice
    Mohamed Sanu (ankle) returned to a full practice on Friday.

    Advice: He'll be all systems go for Monday night's showdown with the Saints. Julio Jones (calf, ankle) remains hobbled, increasing Sanu's WR4/flex appeal. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:17 am

  • Eric Decker returns to full practice
    Eric Decker (shoulder) returned to a full practice on Friday.

    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

  • Julio Jones misses another practice on Friday
    Julio Jones (calf, ankle) did not practice Friday.

    Advice: While he hasn't practiced each of the past two days, coach Dan Quinn has expressed optimism about Jones' status for Monday night. We'd love to see him practice on Saturday, but by all accounts he should be good to go for Week 3. Despite the minor injuries, Jones is maybe the top WR1 of the week. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:01 am

  • Colts hold Hilton out of Friday practice
    T.Y. Hilton (questionable, knee) was held out of Colts practice on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Chuck Pagano said Hilton is just "sore," and was "rested" on the last day of the practice week. "He's going to be fine," Pagano promised. Hilton was added to the injury report on Thursday due to a limited practice. It sounds like he will be starting versus San Diego. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:54 am

  • Tyler Lockett (knee) upgraded to 'full'
    Tyler Lockett (knee) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Lockett is going to play against the 49ers. With the Seahawks looking to spark their offense, Lockett should be in for a heavy complement of snaps. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:48 pm

    Texans declared WR Braxton Miller, LT Duane Brown, LB Brian Cushing, OG Oday Aboushi, S Eddie Pleasant, QB Brandon Weeden and DT Devon Still inactive for Week 3 vs. the Patriots.

    Advice: Miller is week to week. His absence creates an opening for Jaelen Strong in three-receiver sets. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:08 pm

  • Snead's Thursday absence due to toe injury
    Willie Snead is dealing with a toe injury.

    Advice: It's what held Snead out of Thursday's practice. At least right now, we don't have reason to believe Snead will miss Monday's game against the Saints, but we need more information. Toe injuries are no laughing matter. Snead played 54-of-65 snaps against the Giants in Week 2. Even a "limited" session Friday would put him on track to play. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:42 pm

  • T.Y. Hilton (knee) gets in limited practice
    T.Y. Hilton was added to the Colts' injury report Thursday, getting in a limited practice with a knee issue.

    Advice: A similar move caused alarm last week, but it turns out this is just going to be Hilton's ritual for the time being. Hilton was actually held out last Thursday before ultimately starting against the Broncos. He's a solid WR2 for a decent matchup with the Chargers. Jason Verrett is unlikely to follow Hilton into the slot. Daily Slant: Hilton is second in targets (23) and tied for fourth in red-zone targets (4) in the early going, which sets him up for a huge afternoon against the Chargers. He's going to avoid Verrett while he's lined up in the slot, and with Donte Moncrief out there is little reason to expect his target total to drop. This contest is one of the better targets of the week on the fast Indy track. Hilton is playable in any format. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:32 pm

  • Mohamed Sanu (ankle) not practicing Thursday
    Mohamed Sanu (ankle) didn't practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Sanu played his normal snaps in Week 2 and should be fine for Monday night's game in New Orleans. The Falcons are likely just managing his reps. Sanu has secured eight-of-13 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown this season and should be on the WR3/4 borderline for Week 3. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:25 pm

  • Snead missing from Saints practice Thursday
    Willie Snead (undisclosed) was absent from the portion of Saints practice open to the media on Thursday.

    Advice: It's the Saints' first practice of the week, as they're playing in the Monday night game. It's possible Snead isn't injured and is away from the team on personal business, but that's not the most-likely scenario. It's also not the "veteran's day" portion of the season for a 23 year old. Snead's status will be updated soon. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:07 pm

  • Doctson gets in another 'limited' session
    Josh Doctson (Achilles') remained limited Thursday.

    Advice: The Redskins are likely just managing Doctson's reps after he barely practiced over the summer. Doctson is a WR5 as he gets his NFL feet wet. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:44 am

  • Alshon Jeffery downgraded to 'DNP' Thursday
    Alshon Jeffery (knee) was downgraded to "DNP" in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Jeffery was "limited" on Wednesday. "Just something that we're monitoring," coach John Fox said, apparently seeking a competitive advantage. "We'll see what tomorrow brings." It's unknown when Jeffery suffered his latest "injury." No player in the league gets listed with more random practice ailments. It's possibly just gamesmanship on the part of the Bears. For now, we'd still consider Jeffery likely to suit up against the Cowboys, but it can't be considered a given. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Chicago is playing in the Sunday night game.

  • 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

  • Josh Doctson (Achilles) limited Wednesday
    Josh Doctson (Achilles) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Doctson didn't look to suffer any setbacks in his return last week. Washington surprisingly featured him with three red-zone targets, but he failed to come down with any of them. Doctson should be fine for Week 3. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:25 pm

  • Tyler Lockett limited on Wednesday
    Tyler Lockett (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Coach Pete Carroll said Lockett is on track to play Sunday against the 49ers. After a few big grabs against the Rams last week, Lockett is back on the WR3 map in a tasty home date with the lowly 49ers this week. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:44 pm

  • Alshon Jeffery (knee) limited on Wednesday
    Alshon Jeffery (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: It's not a big concern, but any time Jeffery gets listed with an injury it's notable. He missed so much time last season with nagging issues. The good news this time is that it's not a soft-tissue -- hamstring, calf, quad -- ailment that he seemed to battle all of 2015. Jeffery should be fine for Week 3 at the Cowboys, though his fantasy owners would surely appreciate more targets. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:33 am

  • Moncrief out 4-6 weeks with fractured scapula
    Coach Chuck Pagano announced Donte Moncrief will miss 4-6 weeks with a fractured scapula.

    Advice: This is a bit worse than initially feared, but at least it isn't a season-ender. Moncrief won't need surgery, only rest. In his absence, the Colts will turn to 2015 first-rounder Phillip Dorsett as an every-down player in two-wide sets, with UDFA Chester Rogers taking over as the No. 3 receiver. Moncrief was the lone Colts receiver with some size, so this could lead to more scoring chances for TEs Dwayne Allen and Jack Doyle. Allen is entrenched as a TE1 while Moncrief is out.

  • Colts remain unsure of Moncrief timeline
    The Colts are awaiting further test results on Donte Moncrief's shoulder.

    Advice: The Indianapolis Star senses it's a matter of how many, not "if," when it comes to the number of games Moncrief will miss. Reporter Stephen Holder does believe the issue is not "season ending." Moncrief has yet to be formally ruled out for Week 3, so there's really not much to go on for the time being.

  • Eric Decker: No concern about Week 3 status
    Eric Decker (shoulder) said he isn't concerned about his Week 3 status.

    Advice: "I'm fine," Decker said in a Tuesday radio interview. "I'm definitely playing." Coming off a dominant Week 2 effort, Decker has scored in both games this season. He's as solid of a WR2 as they come. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:20 am
