  • Jace Amaro active for first time with Titans
    Titans TE Jace Amaro is active for the first time this season.

    Advice: It is notable with Delanie Walker sidelined by a hamstring injury. TitanInsider's Terry McCormick reports Amaro has been working with Marcus Mariota after practice to get up to speed after being claimed off waivers earlier this month. Amaro could have a bigger than expected role against the Raiders, but he is not worth using in any format. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:20 am

  • Chris Ivory (illness) active against Baltimore
    Chris Ivory (illness) is active for Week 3 against the Ravens.

    Advice: Ivory is finally ready to make his Jaguars debut after missing the first two games with what the team is calling a "general medical issue." He won't see a full workload in his first game back but Ivory is still the favorite for goal-line carries. That makes him a touchdown-or-bust RB3. Obviously Ivory's return will put a major dent in T.J. Yeldon's fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:54 am

    Advice: Rawls is not surprising, but Prosise did practice in full all week. Prosise is still wearing a cast on his injured hand, however, so he likely would not have helped out much on offense either way.

  • O. Darkwa expected to take R. Jennings' role
    Orleans Darkwa is expected to share carries with Shane Vereen in the absence of Rashad Jennings (thumb) against the Redskins.

    Advice: Beat writer Jordan Raanan still expects Vereen to be New York's Week 3 lead back, but Darkwa is a sneaky bet for goal-line work and should also handle 9-13 carries off the bench. Raanan leaves the door open for "maybe a slight infusion of Bobby Rainey and Paul Perkins." Vereen is a strong RB2 play in PPR leagues. Darkwa is worth a look if you're desperate for a flex play.

  • Vikings want Peterson to retire in Minnesota
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Vikings want Adrian Peterson to retire "as a valued member of the organization."

    Advice: There's been speculation the team could move on from Peterson this offseason because of his contract, but apparently the Vikings are willing to do whatever they can to keep him in Minnesota for the long run. After taking on Sam Bradford's expensive salary, the Vikings will probably have to renegotiate Peterson's deal. He's slated to earn $11.75 million in base salary next season along with a $6 million roster bonus due on the third day of the new year. Peterson is expected to miss at least the rest of the regular season after going down with a torn meniscus in Week 2. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:35 am

    Advice: Jay Ajayi, Isaiah Pead and Damien Williams will be left to fight for Drake's scraps on Sunday. All three of those players have been in coach Adam Gase's doghouse at some point this year. Ajayi showed nothing in his season debut against the Patriots last week, plodding his way to 14 yards on five carries while committing a costly fumble. Even with Arian Foster (groin) on the shelf, it doesn't look like he'll have much of a role. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:53 am

    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Rashad Jennings (thumb) is expected to miss Sunday's Week 3 game against the Redskins.

    Advice: It's a stunner as Jennings attended practice throughout the week and never looked to be in serious danger of missing Week 3. His thumb injury is obviously more severe than the Giants were letting on. He's week to week. It's unclear how the backfield will shape up in his absence, though Shane Vereen logged 17 touches with Jennings ailing against the Saints in Week 2.

    Advice: Fantasy owners got a mild scare when Jeffery was held out of Thursday's practice, but he returned to a limited session Friday and should be loaded into fantasy lineups. Jeffery's outlook is barely hindered by the Bears' "loss" of Jay Cutler, who was playing poorly. Brian Hoyer can do just as well as Cutler did. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:53 am

    Giants OC Mike Sullivan said the team is confident Rashad Jennings (questionable) can adjust to the cast on his injured thumb.

    Advice: "It’s something that’s not natural. He’s used to doing that without the cast," Sullivan said. "It’s definitely an adjustment that we have great confidence he’ll be able to make." Coach Ben McAdoo also said he is "comfortable" with his No. 1 back. It seems clear Jennings is going to play, but he could see limited touches after playing fewer snaps than Shane Vereen last week.

    Advice: Schefter concedes it's "too early to say for sure," but Garoppolo will be under center if he's able, particularly following Jacoby Brissett's thumb injury. Tom Brady has one more game on suspension, then will return in Week 5. As of Thursday, however, Garoppolo was still in a "tremendous amount of pain" due to his throwing-arm injury.

"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.

    Advice: It's just a formality as Peterson was already expected to miss the remainder of the regular season after suffering a torn meniscus in Week 2. Technically, the earliest Peterson can return is Week 11, although that isn't happening. Season-long fantasy owners should have dropped him a few days ago.

    Advice: He was originally not listed on the injury report. Per NJ.com's Jordan Raanan, the "expectation remains he'll play with small cast on his left thumb." Jennings' passing-game and ball-carrying usage could be limited by the injury.

    Advice: Obviously it won't be Arian Foster, who has already been ruled out with a groin injury. We're guessing Jay Ajayi will get the nod, though he might share work with third-round rookie Kenyan Drake. For what it's worth, Ajayi out-touched Drake 9-4 against New England in Week 2.

    Alshon Jeffery (knee) returned to a limited practice on Friday and is questionable for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Coach John Fox said Jeffery is dealing with "knee soreness." Jeffery sat out Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday. It's possible the Bears were just managing his reps.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) doubtful for TNF
    Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 3 against the Texans.

    Advice: Garoppolo was always a long shot to play this week, despite the painstaking efforts New England went through to make it look like he might. He was having trouble lifting his arm as recently as 24 hours ago. It looks like the Pats are content to ride it out with former college QB Julian Edelman backing up third-round rookie Jacoby Brissett. Expect a heavy dose of LeGarrette Blount on Thursday. Daily Slant: With both offenses projected for around 20 points (41.5 total, tied for the lowest of the weekend), this game is best left alone for those playing in Thursday-Sunday/Monday contests. Given that the Patriots are generally thought of as a top offense, it's likely the options on their side are going to be more popular than they should be. Houston's big names (Hopkins, Miller, Fuller) are also likely to be popular. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:14 pm

    Coach Adam Gase suggested the Dolphins could use a full-blown running back by committee with Arian Foster (groin) likely out Week 3 against the Browns.

    Advice: Gase added that practice this week will determine who gets the start. With Foster expected to sit, the Dolphins are left with Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake, Damien Williams, and Isaiah Pead. Gase went on to talk about each back's strengths on Wednesday. It's conceivable it could be a straight-up rotational backfield and hot-hand approach. Through two games, the Dolphins have the third-fewest rushing attempts as a team. This is simply a situation to avoid. Ryan Tannehill and the receivers are far more attractive fantasy options Week 3.

  • Ron Rivera says Stewart could miss 2-4 weeks
    Coach Ron Rivera said Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) could be out "two weeks, three weeks, four weeks."

    Advice: This sounds like a classic coach answer. Rivera is simply being facetious with his answer and not trying to tell the whole truth. Stewart has long been a slow healer, however, and hamstring issues in running backs and receiver can linger. Stewart seems pretty certain to miss multiple games. In his absence, OC Mike Shula said the Panthers will use a committee in the backfield. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:46 am

    Alshon Jeffery (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: It's not a big concern, but any time Jeffery gets listed with an injury it's notable. He missed so much time last season with nagging issues. The good news this time is that it's not a soft-tissue -- hamstring, calf, quad -- ailment that he seemed to battle all of 2015. Jeffery should be fine for Week 3 at the Cowboys, though his fantasy owners would surely appreciate more targets. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:33 am

  • Adrian Peterson needs surgery, out 3-4 months
    ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Adrian Peterson will undergo surgery to repair his torn meniscus on Thursday and will be out a "minimum" of 3-4 months.

    Advice: Peterson has a "bucket handle tear." He's likely headed to season-ending I.R. with a recovery that "usually" requires six months. At best, it sounds like Peterson could maybe play in the playoffs if the Vikings make it. But in all likelihood, this is Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata's backfield for the remainder of 2016. With just one year left on his contract and set to count $18 million against the cap in 2017, we may have seen Peterson's last carry in a Vikings uniform. He'll turn 32 next March with two serious knee injuries on his record. The Vikings can clear all $18 million off the salary cap by releasing Peterson after the season.

Yeldon didn't do much in Ivory's absence, turning 28 carries into 67 yards (2.8 YPC) and one touchdown, while also catching 12 passes for 40 yards (3.3 YPR).

    Advice: According to Werder, depending on how the Vikings treat Peterson's torn meniscus, he could be out as little as 1-3 weeks. But as of Wednesday morning, the team is still soliciting opinions on the knee. In Peterson's absence, Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon will split the work, with Asiata the best bet for red-zone and goal-line work. McKinnon is the big-play threat between the 20s.

    Advice: Per reporter Jeff Howe, Garoppolo is "still struggling to lift his right arm," so it continues to seem like his supposed up-in-the-air status is just a ruse.

  • Rashad Jennings expects to play in Week 3
    Rashad Jennings has a cast on his left thumb, but is expected to play without it in Week 3.

    Advice: Per ESPN's Jordan Raanan, Jennings "seems confident" he'll suit up against the Redskins. The Giants will update his status after Wednesday's practice. Daily Slant: Jennings averaged just 2.1 YPC against the Saints - who allowed the most FPPG to RBs last season - on Sunday, while fellow RB Shane Vereen averaged just 3.0 YPC. Neither back has stood out this season and with Vereen arguably looking like the better between the tackles runner through two games, the carries may even out a bit more compared to Week 1 (18 for Jennings, 6 for Vereen). Vereen's extended usage Sunday was likely just a result of Jennings' injury, but at this point it's best to leave both of them untouched for DFS purposes. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:39 pm

  • AD's timetable depends on course of action
    The timetable for Adrian Peterson's return from a torn meniscus will depend on the severity of the injury and how the doctors choose to treat it.

    Advice: The best-case scenario would be for Peterson to avoid surgery, which could allow him to return in a couple weeks. Peterson has two options if he needs to go under the knife. Having the meniscus trimmed or removed could allow him to come back as early as Week 7, but that surgery is unlikely to offer a complete recovery. If Peterson chooses to have the meniscus repaired, he could be looking at a 3-4 month timetable. Until all of those decisions are made, Peterson's status is completely up in the air.

  • Jeffery posts 5-96 line in MNF loss to Eagles
    Alshon Jeffery caught 5-of-7 targets for 96 yards in the Bears' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

    Advice: Jeffery led the Bears in targets, but once again the ball was spread around like it was in the season opener. With Kevin White and Eddie Royal back healthy after missing much of last season, Jeffery doesn't appear to have a dominant market share on the targets in Chicago. He still was easily the best offensive player on the field for the Bears, setting up their lone offensive touchdown with a 49-yard catch on a double-move past rookie CB Jalen Mills. He also drew a DPI penalty in the end zone two plays later. Jeffery remains a WR1, but it would be nice to see him back in the 10-12 targets range. He's seen just 13 through two games. Jeffery gets a decent matchup on the road against the Cowboys in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:49 pm

    Advice: It could have been a lot worse, though it's still likely Peterson is looking at a multi-week absence. Zimmer didn't completely dismiss the idea of Peterson playing against the Panthers in Week 3, but given the nature of his injury, we'd consider that an extreme long shot. With Peterson sidelined for most of the second half, Matt Asiata out-touched Jerick McKinnon 7-3 against the Packers in Week 2. Both are worth a speculative add. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:50 am

Jennings' status likely will not be updated until the Giants release their first practice report on Wednesday.

Peterson reportedly has some ligament damage, but it sounds like he is dealing with just a sprain. Considering how bad the injury looked when he was hobbling into the locker room, a sprain might be the best possible outcome.

    A source told Bleacher Report's Jason Cole that Adrian Peterson has some ligament damage in his right knee.

    Advice: Cole says "there is confidence he'll play again this year," but Peterson is likely staring at a multi-week absence. USA Today's Tom Pelissero reported Peterson "didn't have that much swelling" and he is able to extend his leg. It sounds like Peterson may have a sprained MCL or something similar. The Vikings were struggling mightily to run the ball before Peterson's injury and had a ton of success in the passing game when he went out.

Rawls should be fine for Week 3 against the 49ers, but he looked bad Sunday, while Christine Michael averaged 6.0 YPC and outplayed Rawls for the second week in a row to begin the season.

    Advice: Wright has been limited at practice this week and wasn't going to be ready in time for Sunday. He'll set his sights on a return against Oakland in Week 3.

He's not worth a bench stash in 10 and 12-team leagues.Daily Slant: With Wright out in the season opener, Tajae Sharpe ate up 11 targets (7-76) and was clearly the focal point of the passing game, something that should continue in Week 2. Delanie Walker is also very likely to be heavily involved against a Detroit defense that surrendered three TDs to the TE spot last Sunday.
