  • 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 Today, 2:30 pm

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 Today, 12:53 pm

Spencer Ware is still expected to lead the Chiefs' backfield in Week 4, though it's possible Charles could cut into his red-zone work. Charcandrick West (ankle) won't be in action Sunday night.

    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 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.

  • 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.

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

  • Gronkowski (hamstring) still limited Wednesday
    Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Gronkowski only logged 14 snaps in last week's win over Houston and was mostly used as a decoy. He should have a much bigger role against Buffalo in Week 4. As always, Gronkowski is a locked-in TE1. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:37 pm

    C.J. Prosise (hand) will be in a cast for at least three more weeks.

    Advice: Coach Pete Carroll said earlier this week that he expected Prosise to return against the Jets in Week 4, but it's going to be hard for him to catch passes with a cast on his hand. He's no threat to Christine Michael's workload. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:20 pm

  • Dez has fracture in knee, hopes to play at SF
    Coach Jason Garrett said Dez Bryant has a hairline fracture in his knee, but the Cowboys are hopeful he'll be able to play Week 4 at the 49ers.

    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. Hairline fractures in the fibula, which is at the base of the leg rather than the knee, often require multiple weeks of recovery. Bryant didn't practice Wednesday and will likely be a game-time decision Sunday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:41 am

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Kenneth Dixon (knee) is targeting a Week 5 return.

    Advice: RapSheet riled up the masses with a tweet earlier Wednesday morning that Dixon was returning to practice Wednesday, but he didn't do much of anything besides working out by himself on a side field. Dixon is still recovering from a sprained MCL. Coach John Harbaugh expressed frustration with the running game Wednesday, so Dixon could be given a decent workload as soon as he hits the field. He's worth picking up as a bench-stash flier if you have roster room. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:36 am

He appeared to re-tweak the ankle but quickly returned. At this point, we'd expect Jackson to play Sunday against the Browns. Check back Thursday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:22 am

    Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) said he's experienced "no setbacks" since last Thursday night's win over the Texans.

    Advice: In his first action of the season, Gronkowski splayed just 14-of-64 snaps in a very limited offensive role. The Patriots still steamrolled the Texans. Gronk should be closer to full go this week against the Bills and will be a top-end TE1 since he'll likely be in the game for red-zone situations at the very least. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:09 am

  • Sammy Watkins testing foot later this week
    NFL.com's Mike Garofolo reports Sammy Watkins will test out his injured foot on Wednesday or Thursday, and that it will determine his Week 4 availability.

    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. Even a limited session Thursday would have him tentatively on track to return against the Patriots. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:46 pm

  • 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

    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.

"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."

    Raiders released FB Marcel Reece.

    Advice: Ryan said the Bills are still in "wait-and-see" mode regarding Watkins' playing availability week to week. The Bills will see how Watkins is feeling later in the week and make a decision thereafter. Watkins' injured foot was stepped on by a teammate last week. He may come down to a game-time decision.

    Advice: Carroll said Rawls' injury is "a little worse than we thought." NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Rawls has a hairline fracture. After taking a shockingly long time to recover from the ankle injury which ended his 2015 campaign, it is not a given Rawls will return anytime soon.

  • Kenny Britt has four-catch afternoon
    Kenny Britt caught 4-of-6 targets for 38 yards in the Rams' Week 3 win over the Bucs.

    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.

  • Dorsett goes 3-27 on 4 targets in Week 3 win
    Phillip Dorsett caught 3-of-4 targets for 27 yards in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Chargers.

    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.

  • Wheaton dreadful (1-2-0) in 2016 debut
    Markus Wheaton secured one-of-five targets for two yards Sunday in the Steelers' Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

    Advice: It took him four quarters to gather his first catch. Wheaton dropped a sure touchdown in the first quarter and was benched until Eli Rogers left the game with a toe injury. He proceeded to drop his next two targets. Wheaton missed the first two games of the season with a shoulder injury and it looked like he forgot how to play football during his time off. Perhaps he’ll redeem himself next week against the Chiefs. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:09 pm

  • Matt Forte held in check in Week 3 loss
    Matt Forte rushed 15 times for 65 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for -1 yard Week 3 against the Chiefs.

    Advice: Forte again looked good, getting everything that was blocked and creating yards on his own with great moves in the backfield. Unfortunately, the offense struggled to get anything going all game, and OC Chan Gailey apparently forgot Forte existed when the team was in the red zone. Gailey did, on the other hand, allow Ryan Fitzpatrick to throw three end-zone interceptions. Things will not get any easier against the Seahawks next week, but Forte’s workload keeps him in the RB1 conversation. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:39 pm

    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.

    Advice: D-Jax proved he was over his ankle injury by running by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for a 44-yard score. Jackson suffered what looked to be another ankle injury late in the first half, but escaped with only a tweak or bruise. It's always a bit of a rollercoaster with one of the league's top deep threats, but Jackson is the owner of a 14/238/1 line through three games. He's firmly back in the WR2 conversation.

    Stefon Diggs caught 4-of-7 targets for 40 yards in Minnesota's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

    Advice: Sam Bradford entered halftime with 26 yards, torpedoing the Vikings' entire offense. He was a different player after the break, but it was too late for Diggs' compiling odds. Diggs drew three fewer looks than Kyle Rudolph. Diggs is going to be the focal point of the Vikings' offense going forward, but Bradford will make for a few hairy situations.

  • 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: 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

  • 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.

"If we can ride somebody, we’ll ride him, whether it be a receiver, quarterback or running back. It really doesn’t matter."

    Advice: "You don’t have to force it into tough looks. You can go where the coverage tells you," Shanahan said. "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.

"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."

Sammie Coates was heavily involved as a deep threat against the Bengals, but Wheaton should return to the starting role opposite Antonio Brown.

  • Jamaal Charles (knee) doubtful for Week 3
    Jamaal Charles (knee) is doubtful for Week 3 against the Jets.

    Advice: Coach Andy Reid gave Charles owners some false hope Friday by hinting at a return in Week 3, but his doubtful listing confirms that won't be the case. Spencer Ware is looking at another week atop the Chiefs' running back depth chart. Charles has worked with the first-team offense at practice the past few days after being relegated to scout team duty the previous two weeks. He's getting close. Daily Slant: The backfield will very likely be left to Ware and West yet again, although this is the toughest draw they've faced so far. The Jets haven't allowed much to opposing backs this year, holding them to a shade under 4.0 YPC on 29 totes, and they've struggled to get pressure on opposing QBs. They managed to hit Tyrod Taylor just once (no sacks) last week, setting up Alex Smith and Jeremy Maclin as sneaky GPP plays. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:45 pm

"He wasn’t able to practice Wednesday, Thursday, so we’re just hoping by the weekend he’ll have a chance to play," Carroll said. "We won’t know until then." Even if Rawls is active for the game, Christine Michael is set up to start and quite possibly handle 20-plus touches. Michael is shaping up as a legitimate RB1 play in fantasy leagues.

We have no idea whom the Patriots are going to start at quarterback in Week 4 against the Bills. They have nine days to figure it out.

Charles' role would undoubtedly be limited were he able to play against the Jets, but his progress is a very good sign. Spencer Ware should remain the Chiefs' lead back in Week 3.

    Advice: Walker missed Wednesday's session, was limited on Thursday, and was held out on Friday, which constitutes a downgrade. Even if Walker is indeed active versus Oakland, he will be tough to trust as a surefire fantasy TE1. The Titans are very thin in the pass-catcher corps, which is concerning for Marcus Mariota.

  • Snap-counted Gronk draws one target in debut
    Rob Gronkowski was held without a catch on one target in New England's Week 3 win over the Texans.

    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. Teams can't win often with this kind of keep-it-hidden performance, but Brissett won't have to do much more in Week 4 against the Bills if Jimmy Garoppolo remains sidelined.

Gronk offers mammoth upside every time he takes the field, but comes with far more downside than usual this week.

It's inevitable that Forte's workloads will be curtailed, especially with a competent backup in Bilal Powell, but Week 3 won't be it.

  • Markus Wheaton says shoulder is 'fine'
    Markus Wheaton said his shoulder is "fine."

    Advice: Wheaton missed his second game in a row Sunday, but he said the injury did not play a role in the decision. "It's just a matter that I missed a lot of football," Wheaton said. "And so with that little bit of practice it was an easy call." Wheaton practiced in full early last week before being limited on Friday. Another week of full practices should have him ready for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:30 am
