    Giants coach Ben McAdoo said Rashad Jennings (thumb) could be a "game-day" decision.

    Advice: Jennings was limited again on Friday. The back said he hoped to have a better idea of his Week 4 status following Friday's practice, but there have not been any reports on what that idea is. It still is unlikely Jennings plays Monday night, but the uncertainty makes it tough to trust him or Orleans Darkwa in a tough matchup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:32 pm

    Advice: It's good news for his chances of returning this year, as Jones fractures have a high rate of second surgery. Watkins will visit Dr. Robert Anderson, but it sounds like he just needs rest/recovery. Buffalo is hoping Watkins can return in Week 12. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:06 pm

  • Buffalo sends Sammy Watkins (foot) to IR
    Bills placed WR Sammy Watkins (foot) on injured reserve.

    Advice: Watkins was already ruled out for Week 4. His foot injury wasn't showing any signs of improving, though the reports were he was only dealing with pain management. Watkins will miss at least the next eight weeks on I.R, making Week 12 his earliest possible return. It's a huge blow to an offense that doesn't have any playmakers outside of LeSean McCoy. Buffalo signed Justin Hunter to add depth behind Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:30 pm

  • Dez Bryant officially is questionable
    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.

    RotoGrinders.com 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: Coach Rex Ryan said there's "major concern" about Watkins' availability moving forward.

  • 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: Rapoport reports the Cowboys hope Bryant can play this week, but they are "aware" he could be looking at a "three-week injury." It would be surprising at this point if Bryant suited up against the 49ers, and he is questionable at best for Week 5 against the Bengals.

  • Cowboys fine Dez for missing MRI, meetings
    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." It's unclear how much Bryant has been fined, but at least for now he seems to be in hot water with the organization. Hopefully, he will now focus on rehab and this is the last we hear of this.

    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.

    Advice: Per Garofolo, "there are no structural issues" with Watkins' foot, and it remains "an issue of pain tolerance." Watkins tried to play through the injury on short rest in Week 2, but had a sub-par night against the Jets' leaky secondary. It sounds like Watkins will probably be listed as "DNP" on Wednesday.

  • 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.

  • Julio Jones (calf) 'good to go' Monday night
    Julio Jones (calf, ankle) is active and "good to go" for Monday night's Week 3 game against the Saints.

    Advice: There was never much doubt despite the questionable tag. Jones may not be 100 percent, but he came into the week as the elite WR1 play against a Saints defense that lost its Nos. 1 and 2 cornerbacks to injury Weeks 1 and 2. Hybrid S/slot CB Kenny Vaccaro (ankle) is also inactive. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:00 pm

    Advice: Spiller played for OC Chan Gailey in Buffalo and had the best season of his career in Gailey's final year as the Bills' head coach in 2012. Spiller amassed 1,703 total yards and eight touchdowns in Gailey's spread scheme that season. In New York, he'd be insurance behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:30 pm

"Yeah, we’ve got to find a way to get him the ball more," said Shula. "That starts with me. But we’ve got to make sure we’re doing it in a way that we’re not just trying to force him the ball."

    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.

There's likely renewed urgency to get Jennings back on the field, however, with the news that Shane Vereen is done for the season.

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.

    Advice: Britt also drew a defensive pass interference penalty and lost a fumble. The giveaway got punched out from behind. Britt has at least four grabs in all three games, but yardage will be hard to consistently come by and touchdowns scarce for the Rams' boxed-in offense. He's a WR5 fill-in.

    Advice: Dorsett played in all two-wide sets with Donte Moncrief (shoulder blade) on the shelf, but he ran into a tough draw against the Chargers' solid trio of corners. T.Y. Hilton dominated targets (11) and turned them into an explosive 8-174-1 line. Dorsett is going to take a backseat to Hilton with Moncrief down and isn't going to be a factor in the red zone.

    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

    Jimmy Graham caught 6-of-9 targets for 100 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 3 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Graham and Christine Michael were monsters in this one, giving Seattle a 37-3 lead before the 49ers chipped away in garbage time. Coming off a ruptured patellar tendon, Graham looked fully back to form by skying to make contested catches in the open field and appearing in excellent shape physically. Graham needs to be picked up in all fantasy leagues ahead of a Week 4 date with the Jets. He is back to being a full-time player in Seattle's offense. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:30 pm

  • Kelvin Benjamin: Zero catches on one target
    Kelvin Benjamin was held without a catch on one target in Carolina's Week 3 loss to the Vikings.

    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. The WR1 overall through the season's first two weeks, Benjamin should bounce back as a borderline WR1 against the Falcons in Week 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:41 pm

    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

  • Eric Ebron matches career high with 5 catches
    Eric Ebron caught 5-of-8 targets for 69 yards Week 3 against the Packers.

    Advice: Shockingly, the five catches matched Ebron's career-high, and he likely would have had more if not hobbled by an apparent ankle injury in the second half. Ebron played through the injury, but he had to come off the field after a catch in the third quarter and did not appear to be 100 percent. Ebron looked great before the issue, but his biggest play of the game was one he would like to forget. With the Lions driving, Ebron had the ball ripped out of his hands on what should have been a catch. Despite that mistake, Ebron will be a must-play option if healthy next week against the Bears.

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

"You might not have the same numbers for [Julio Jones] and stuff, but I think the result ends up improving the offense." Julio has nine catches for 172 yards and two scores already this year, but he is on pace for just 104 targets after seeing 203 last season. That pace will certainly pick up, but it seems clear he is not going to be the target monster he was the last two years. Even so, he will be an elite WR1 if he suits up Monday night.

    Advice: So much for that. Gronk was on the strictest of snap counts, checking in for 7-of-18 plays across the Patriots' first four drives as they took control of the game. He ended up taking 14 reps. Gronk was in for some money downs near the goal line, but it was an otherwise hopeless night for fantasy owners. The good news, of course, is that he escaped without setbacks and has 10 days to rest up for Week 4, where he should be on the field much more often. He'll be a top-three TE1 against the Bills.

    Jacoby Brissett completed 11-of-19 passes for 103 yards in New England's 27-0, Week 3 win over the Texans, adding eight carries for 48 yards and a touchdown.

    Advice: Making an emergency start on three days' rest, Brissett wasn't asked to do much, but set the tone with a 27-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Brissett briskly faked a handoff and was off to the races. He undressed Andre Hal on his way to the house. Brissett avoided mistakes, and had surprising command of the offense. More than once, he hurried the team to the line, a la Tom Brady.

  • 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
