  • Lamar Miller absent from Week 3 injury report
    Lamar Miller (ankle) is absent from the Week 3 injury report.

    Advice: Miller tweaked his ankle in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss, but it wasn't serious enough to limit his reps this week. Taking over as the No. 1 back in the absence of Knowshon Moreno (elbow), Miller has RB2 appeal in the Dolphins' newly run-heavy offense. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Shaun Hill (thigh) participated in individual drills and remains day-to-day. Case Keenum received a couple of reps with the starters in 11-on-11 drills. But Austin Davis is the clear favorite to start against the Cowboys after leading the Rams to a 19-17 win over the Bucs last Sunday.

Owners may cringe at the idea of a reduced workload, but it's not like Foster would suddenly be a part of a committee. The Texans have to scale back his work to keep him healthy.

    Austin Davis completed 22-of-29 passes for 235 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Rams' Week 2, 19-17 win over the Bucs.

    Advice: Davis looked much better than anyone could have expected. He hung tough in the pocket, staring in the face of pressure, and delivering strikes to his receivers. The second-year UDFA, making his first NFL start, posted an impressive 99.1 passer rating and 8.1 YPA. He moved the offense down the field and didn't make any mistakes, hooking up with Brian Quick seven times for 74 yards. With the win, Davis likely bought himself another start next week at home against the Cowboys even if Shaun Hill (thigh) is healthy. He's a low-end QB2/3. Rotoworld.com

Foster's fantasy owners should actually be hoping coach Bill O'Brien scales back Foster's workload in an effort to keep the centerpiece of his offense healthy.

    Advice: Ellington ripped off a number of big plays on the ground, but lost nine carries to Jonathan Dwyer, including a valuable goal-line plunge. Through two weeks, Ellington has rarely been a part of Arizona's red-zone offense, which is a major concern for his fantasy value in standard (non-PPR leagues).

If true, it would make the UDFA a far more intriguing hold than previously thought. For now, however, it doesn't really matter as Shorts does not appear close to getting over his latest injury.

  • Report: DeAngelo Williams is unlikely to play
    ESPN's Ed Werder reports DeAngelo Williams (questionable, thigh) is "not likely to play" in Week 2 against the Lions, "barring unexpected improvement."

    Advice: Werder reports Williams "did some running" on Friday, but "still has pain" in his thigh. The Panthers figure to turn to Jonathan Stewart as their lead back against Detroit's stingy run defense, with Mike Tolbert and Fozzy Whittaker mixing in. Fantasy owners can hold onto Williams as an injured RB4, but it isn't as if he offers much upside when healthy. The Panthers are clearly committed to using three tailbacks, and Cam Newton's healthy return may siphon a few rushing attempts from the pie as well. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Williams actually missed both Thursday and Friday's practices after waking up "sore" midway through the week. "I'm concerned," Rivera said. "Again he's a running back and he's got to rely on that burst. And based on the way he ran today, we're going to have to see how he is tomorrow morning. If he's just the slightest bit hampered by it ... We'll have to see. It's the burst that you're always worried about."

Per Rapsheet, players currently serving suspensions for positive amphetamine tests - such as Wes Welker, Orlando Scandrick and Dion Jordan - would be immediately reinstated. It's unclear if that would take effect for Week 2 or Week 3, but it's likely Week 2. Josh Gordon's situation is more complicated.

    Advice: Miller got the start over Knowshon Moreno, but ceded the keys to the backfield after losing a fumble midway through the second quarter. Miller was out-carried 20-8 after his cough up, with at least three of those totes coming simply because Moreno was winded. The good news is, Miller continued to operate as the Dolphins' passing-down back. Either way, Moreno should enter Week 2 as the firm No. 1 on early downs.

    Advice: Davis opened the second half at quarterback after the Rams said Hill suffered a thigh injury. We're not believing it, as Hill was flat-out terrible in the first half.
