  • Roddy White officially inactive versus Bucs
    Roddy White (hamstring) is inactive for Week 3 against the Bucs.

    Advice: The Falcons had intimated all week that White would suit up, but that changed on Thursday afternoon. White should return for Week 4, but the former iron man has now missed four of the Falcons' past 19 games, and played at less than 100 percent in many more. His absence leaves Julio Jones as a target monster, and Harry Douglas as a legitimate WR3. Devin Hester will run deep routes as the Falcons' No. 3 receiver. Also inactive for the Falcons are QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, C James Stone, OT Ryan Schraeder and DT Cliff Matthews. Rotoworld.com

    Jerricho Cotchery was added to the Panthers' injury report Thursday, getting in a limited session with a thigh issue.

    Advice: Cotchery likely tweaked his thigh in Thursday's practice. It shouldn't hold him out for Week 3, where he'll be a touchdown-dependent WR5, as usual. Rotoworld.com

  • Vikes give up on troubled WR Jerome Simpson
    Vikings released WR Jerome Simpson.

    Advice: Simpson's three-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy was set to end on Monday, but it was revealed Thursday that he was busted on marijuana and alcohol charges in July. Simply stunning immaturity from a 28-year-old receiver who's dealt with various legal issues throughout his NFL career. Simpson is a competent deep threat, but has had trouble staying on the field thanks to his bans. Considering the current climate for NFL troublemakers, he's unlikely to find a new home any time soon.

It's a surprise after White played every snap in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, and the Falcons intimated he'd play Thursday. White has been removed from Rotoworld's Week 3 ranks. The Falcons will roll with Harry Douglas and Devin Hester behind Julio Jones. Douglas is a safe, but low-upside, WR3. Hester remains off the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Carrier came off the bench in last Sunday night's loss to Chicago, turning four targets into 41 yards on three catches. The former Beloit (WI) college basketball player and track star runs 4.5-flat at 6-foot-3, 238 pounds with a 38-inch vertical. In an ideal matchup against a Cardinals defense that hemorrhages fantasy points to tight ends, Carrier is on the Week 3 streamer radar. Rotoworld.com

  • Jamaal Charles officially limited on Thursday
    Jamaal Charles (ankle) was officially limited in Thursday's return to practice.

    Advice: It's quite possible the Chiefs are just trying to confuse the situation for the Dolphins, but reporters present for practice noted that Charles was moving well, and even cutting in position drills. What's clear is that Charles does not have a traditional high-ankle sprain, if he has one at all. For now, he should be considered slightly less than 50-50 to play. Even if Charles did suit up against Miami, it's quite possible he'd be on a snap count. His status should be updated multiple times over the next 24 hours. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Per ESPN's Adam Teicher, Charles participated in warmups, spent a "brief period" being tended to by the team's trainer and then joined position drills. Charles was apparently even "cutting through cones." It would suggest Charles isn't dealing with a high-ankle sprain at all, and that the Chiefs have been misapplying the phrase. There's still more reason to believe Charles will sit than suit up this weekend, but we obviously don't have enough information right now. Charles owners should not count on him being active for Week 3, while Knile Davis owners simply need to sit tight. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Turner added that he might use one back more than the other if someone gets a hot hand. Asiata will have the first crack to get that hot hand as he'll almost certainly start the game, but we know this low-upside bulldozer with a career 3.56 YPC won't help the Adrian Peterson-less Vikings move the ball consistently.

Allen Robinson missed the entire preseason. UDFA Allen Hurns knows the offense like the back of his hand. Once Cecil Shorts is healthy, we'd imagine he and Hurns are the starters. Rotoworld.com

    The Falcons are not concerned about Roddy White's (hamstring) Week 3 status.

    Advice: White didn't miss a snap in Sunday's loss. "It's not important for Roddy to practice,'' coach Mike Smith said after White sat out Tuesday's session. "We'd like for Roddy to practice, but it's all about getting Roddy ready on a short week." Even if White sits again on Wednesday, you won't have to sweat his status for Thursday's game against the Bucs. Rotoworld.com

    Speaking after Tuesday's practice, Falcons coach Mike Smith "indicated" Roddy White (hamstring) will play in Thursday's game against the Bucs.

    Advice: White missed Monday and Tuesday's practices, but it appears the Falcons are just trying to manage his reps on a short week. That being said, it's possible he could end up a game-time decision on Thursday. After struggling through an injury-plagued 2013, White has started out 2014 with a variety of nicks and bruises. With his status still up in the air, White should be considered a mid-range WR2 for Week 3. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: "But it does have the component of a high-ankle sprain," Reid added in fluent coachspeak. Regardless of Reid's remarks, high-ankle sprains are multi-week injuries, and typically require at least a month's absence. If Charles can come back sooner, the Chiefs may have been stretching the definition of "high-ankle sprain," much like the Bills seemed to do with C.J. Spiller in 2013. Either way, fantasy owners should plan on being without Charles for at least the rest of September. Backup Knile Davis is this week's top waiver add. Rotoworld.com

  • Marshall and Jeffery looking doubtful for SNF
    A source informed ESPN's Adam Schefter that he's "75 percent" sure neither Brandon Marshall (ankle) nor Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) plays Sunday night against the 49ers.

    Advice: Both are listed as questionable. Marshall didn't practice at all this week, while Jeffery squeezed in a limited session on Friday. They're both shaping up as game-time decisions. The Bears signed two receivers from the practice squad Saturday. Santonio Holmes is the next man up for Chicago. Rotoworld.com

    The Broncos' defense expects Jamaal Charles to get "a lot of touches this week."

    Advice: "We definitely know they're going to have a heavy gameplan for Jamaal," said Broncos CB Aqib Talib. It is the logical conclusion after coach Andy Reid called it "negligence" that Charles only saw 11 touches Week 1. Charles will be force fed the ball against Denver, and remains an elite RB1 despite the tough matchup. Rotoworld.com

    ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim believes DeSean Jackson will get "more opportunities to go downfield" against the Jaguars Week 2.

    Advice: According to Pro Football Focus, Jackson was targeted more than 10-yards downfield only once Week 1. Keim attributes the lack of downfield attempts to the large cushion Texans' corners were giving Jackson and Pierre Garcon, and expects the Redskins to be much more aggressive against the Jaguars. Jackson is a high-upside WR2/3 this week. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: It's the first we've heard of Hurns being ahead of Marqise Lee on the depth chart. Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco says it's because Hurns has a better grasp of the offense after playing for OC Jedd Fisch at the University of Miami. 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. Hurns is going to start opposite Lee against the bad Redskins secondary on Sunday and has WR4 appeal. Rotoworld.com

It's not a surprise, as the plodding yet reliable Asiata ran ahead of the third-round rookie for the entire preseason. Asiata also started two games last season (for the old regime), totaling 44 carries for 166 yards and a flukish three touchdowns along with five catches for 13 yards.

    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

    Bernard Pierce got the start in Baltimore's Week 2 win over the Steelers, rushing 22 times for 96 yards with a seven-yard reception.

    Advice: Pierce was clearly the leader of the Ravens' committee, starting over Justin Forsett and touching the ball on seven of Baltimore's first nine plays. He didn't do a whole heck of a lot before garbage time, however, notching 20 of his yards on two meaningless final carries with the Ravens winning 26-6 with less than two minutes remaining. Pierce got the rock four times inside the Steelers' five-yard line, but failed to find the end zone. With that pessimism out of the way, Pierce will undoubtedly start against the Browns in Week 3.

The No. 2 option in the pass game, Hilton doesn't run high-percentage routes and is going to have week-to-week inconsistency. He's a boom-or-bust WR3. Rotoworld.com
