  • Charcandrick West (ankle) ruled out Week 4
    Charcandrick West (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 4.

    Advice: Jamaal Charles (knee) has been upgraded to questionable and apparently has an outside chance to contribute on Sunday Night Football against the Steelers. Spencer Ware is locked in as Kansas City's feature back. West can be dropped in all leagues, although he never should have been on fantasy rosters anyway. Rotoworld.com 25 minutes ago

  • Markus Wheaton has discomfort in shoulder
    Markus Wheaton is still dealing with "discomfort" in his shoulder.

    Advice: An AC sprain in Wheaton's shoulder cost him the first two weeks. He returned in Week 3, dropped three passes, and got benched before returning when Eli Rogers (turf toe) left the game. The Steelers can't count on Wheaton to make meaningful contributions at this point. He's droppable in 14-team leagues. Rotoworld.com 46 minutes ago

    Advice: Doctson didn't practice this week and coach Jay Gruden hinted that he could be facing a multi-week absence. Achilles issues sidelined Doctson for most of the offseason and apparently the injury has resurfaced. Doctson has logged just 31 snaps this year. He isn't worth a bench stash in re-draft leagues.

Brian Hoyer quietly finished as a top-12 fantasy passer in Week 3 against the Cowboys and has an enticing Week 4 matchup against a porous Lions pass defense.

  • Josh Gordon caught with pound of weed?
    A TSA spokesperson from Cleveland International Airport denies a report Josh Gordon was caught with a pound of marijuana when trying to go through airport security on Thursday.

Regardless, Gordon checked himself into a rehab facility on Thursday and the Browns have washed their hands of him. We don't expect Gordon to play football in 2016. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:20 am

    Advice: Coach Todd Bowles said it's too early to tell if Decker will need surgery. He's considered week to week for now, but there's obviously concern he could miss quite a bit of time.

  • Janoris Jenkins to shadow Stefon Diggs on MNF
    The Bergen County Record's Art Stapleton expects Giants CB Janoris Jenkins to shadow Stefon Diggs on Monday night.

    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. Diggs is still locked in as a strong WR2 who should be funneled targets. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:18 am

Gordon was scheduled to come off suspension on Monday, but he checked into rehab Thursday, leaving his status with the league in question.

    Jacksonville QB Blake Bortles threw for 548 yards and four touchdowns in two 2015 meetings with Indianapolis.

    Advice: Bortles has six interceptions through three weeks but will look to replicate his past success against the Indianapolis defense. The Colts are coughing up 304.3 passing yards per game, so a repeat performance could be in the cards when the AFC South rivals meet in London. While the Colts D/ST will struggle against the pass in this matchup, Bortles will provide plenty of playmaking opportunities for the Indianapolis defense, making this group a mid-level fantasy option for owners in a pinch.

Gordon has been given 10th and 11th chances by the Browns, and burned them every time. It's good to see Gordon trying to get his life in order by checking into rehab, but he's lucky to have lasted as long as he did in Cleveland. Gordon is still somehow only 25 years old, but he's dangerously close to forcing his way out of the league. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:02 pm

  • Josh Gordon entering rehab, return unknown
    Suspended WR Josh Gordon has decided to enter an in-person rehab facility, and will not return to the Browns when first eligible in week 5.

    Advice: "After careful thought and deep consideration I’ve decided that I need to step away from pursuing my return to the Browns and my football career to enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility," Gordon said in a statement. "This is the right decision for me and one that I hope will enable me to gain full control of my life and continue on a path to reach my full potential as a person." It's unknown when Gordon will return to the team, but fantasy owners should proceed as if he won't play in 2016. There have been no indications Gordon is facing further suspension. An All-Pro in 2013, Gordon has made only five appearances since. His extended absence locks in Terrelle Pryor as the Browns' No. 1 receiver. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:33 pm

Specifically, the injury is a "hairline fracture of the tibial plateau on his right knee."

    C.J. Uzomah caught 2-of-4 targets for 31 yards in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: Tyler Kroft got the nominal start, but Uzomah was more active in the passing game as Kroft was never so much as targeted by Andy Dalton. Either way, Uzomah and Kroft will be fantasy irrelevant soon with Tyler Eifert on his way back. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:38 pm

  • Tyler Boyd goes 3-18 against Broncos
    Tyler Boyd caught 3-of-4 targets for 18 yards in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Broncos.

    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. Green. For Week 4 on Thursday night against Miami, Boyd will be a fantasy WR4/5, just like Brandon LaFell. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:34 pm

NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reports Doctson's Achilles' did not feel good in warmups after being limited all week in practice. It does not sound like he suffered a setback, but his practice participation should be closely monitored this week. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:50 am

  • Sammy Watkins (foot) to be inactive vs. ARZ
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Sammy Watkins (foot) will not play Sunday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Watkins tweeted something Saturday night suggesting he was planning on playing, but it sounds like he failed to receive medical clearance. Schefter reports the Bills will turn to one-trick speedster Marquise Goodwin opposite Robert Woods. Losing Watkins is a huge downgrade to Tyrod Taylor's outlook in an already-tough matchup. Watkins can only be considered week to week. Battling a recurring foot injury, he'll likely be week to week for the rest of the year. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:51 am

  • Tweet from Watkins indicates he plans to play
    A Saturday night tweet from Sammy Watkins (foot, questionable) indicated he plans to play Sunday against Arizona.

    Advice: The tweet -- linked below -- reads, "Ready to go out there and compete at the highest level." CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported earlier in the day the Bills were "still holding out some hope" Watkins would give it a go against the Cardinals, despite Rex Ryan's Friday statement that chances were "not real good" Watkins would be able to play. If Watkins does play, he'll be a low-floor WR3 option against Patrick Peterson. The Bills' offense matches up poorly with the Cardinals' defense, which can shut down No. 1 receivers and the running game. Buffalo doesn't have much beyond that. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:58 pm

  • Wheaton will share snaps with Coates, DHB
    PennLive's Jacob Klinger reports Markus Wheaton (shoulder) will rotate with Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey opposite Antonio Brown.

    Advice: Wheaton was slated to be the clear No. 2 to open the season, but a sprained right shoulder kept him out the first two weeks. Now he is returning to a timeshare. "I mean coming in I kind of wanted to take over that role, but things happen," Wheaton said. "Things happen and all I can do is get better now and keep continuing to grow." Splitting snaps, Wheaton is not worth using even in a decent matchup this week, but he could establish himself as the clear starter with a strong showing. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:22 am

    Markus Wheaton (shoulder) was not listed on the final injury report for Week 3 against the Eagles.

    Advice: Wheaton said his absence last week was because of a lack of game preparation rather than his troublesome shoulder, and he is ready after another full week of practice. Sammie Coates was heavily involved as a deep threat against the Bengals, but Wheaton should return to the starting role opposite Antonio Brown. He is a deep league option in a decent matchup against the Eagles. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:49 pm

Zimmer confirmed he is "confident" Diggs will play against the Panthers. Diggs is the NFL's leader in receiving yards through two weeks and will be the focal point of the Vikings' offense following the loss of Adrian Peterson. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:39 am

  • Cutler 'politicking coaches' to play Week 3?
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Jay Cutler (thumb) is "pushing to play" Sunday, and "politicking" the coaching staff.

    Advice: We don't doubt it, but it seems pretty clear that Cutler won't be ready for Sunday Night Football. Master strategist, in his mind, John Fox has yet to rule his quarterback out, but all signs suggest it will be Brian Hoyer under center against the Cowboys. Daily Slant: Even if Cutler is somehow able to play, the Bears offense has been a mess and it's not likely to improve at all if Brian Hoyer is under center. The Cowboys D/ST unit isn't a cash game play this week, but they are an interesting GPP punt for a few reasons. The Bears have scored on just 13% of their possessions this season, the lowest rate in the league, and they've also lead the league in sack rate allowed (12.1%) on their drop backs. Getting pressure on the QB is paramount for D/ST success, as it breeds turnovers. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:25 pm

  • Stephen Anderson could be used in slot
    Texans rookie TE Stephen Anderson could be used in the slot with Braxton Miller (hamstring) sidelined.

    Advice: "Yeah, definitely at Cal I was doing that most of the time," Anderson said. "So, that would put me right back in my comfort zone sliding to the outside." Miller had just six targets in two games, so it is not like Anderson is stepping into a high-volume role. He could see five or six targets each week with Miller out, however. Anderson is a name to watch in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:23 am

    Advice: "Dorsett has been getting better and better," Chudzinski added. With Moncrief out, Dorsett is set to be the No. 2 target on a team which throws 40-plus times a game. That kind of workload matched with his big-play ability makes him an interesting play every week. He is an upside WR3 even in a tough matchup against the Chargers. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:18 am

    An NFL spokesman told the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot that suspended WR Josh Gordon remains on track to return Week 5 despite an arrest warrant being issued for him in Cleveland on Wednesday.

    Advice: The warrant has nothing to do with Gordon's suspension and is expected to be settled either in or out of court. It's still troubling that Gordon is even continuing to have off-field matters creep up in his life. Gordon can't be trusted in Dynasty leagues, and whatever we get from him is viewed as a bonus.

  • 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.

  • Jay Cutler (thumb) expected to miss 2-3 weeks
    Jay Cutler's thumb injury is expected to cost him 2-3 weeks.

    Advice: This assumes the thumb heals normally. The Bears have been saying Cutler's right (throwing) thumb is only sprained, and called him day to day. He's clearly more week to week. Brian Hoyer will take over at quarterback with the Cowboys, Lions, Colts, and Jaguars next up on Chicago's schedule and needs to be added in two-QB leagues. Hoyer is a competent enough backup that Alshon Jeffery shouldn't be downgraded heavily. It's perhaps worth noting that Josh McCown outplayed Cutler when Cutler missed extensive time during the 2013 season with groin and hamstring injuries. Cutler has proven himself to be a bottom-tier NFL starter. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:25 am

    Jay Cutler has been diagnosed with a sprained thumb, and is day to day.

    Advice: Cutler does not need surgery. Even by his standards, Cutler was monumentally ineffective playing through the issue on Monday, so he's probably going to be held out for Week 3. The Bears guard injury information like the lost scrolls of Babylon (not an actual thing), so he could end up a "game-time decision," or some other nonsense. The Bears are playing in the Sunday night game, meaning Cutler won't be worth waiting on in two-quarterback leagues.
