  • Colts looking to contain Bortles
    Jacksonville QB Blake Bortles threw for 548 yards and four touchdowns in two 2015 meetings with Indianapolis.

    Advice: Bortles has six interceptions through three weeks but will look to replicate his past success against the Indianapolis defense. The Colts are coughing up 304.3 passing yards per game, so a repeat performance could be in the cards when the AFC South rivals meet in London. While the Colts D/ST will struggle against the pass in this matchup, Bortles will provide plenty of playmaking opportunities for the Indianapolis defense, making this group a mid-level fantasy option for owners in a pinch.

  • Tyler Boyd has one-catch evening vs. Miami
    Tyler Boyd caught 1-of-3 targets for 10 yards in Cincinnati's Week 4 win over the Dolphins.

    Advice: The second-rounder has 12 catches for 130 yards through four games, putting him on pace for 48/520. That could slacken with Tyler Eifert expected to return for Week 5. Boyd has a weak PPR case. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm

    C.J. Uzomah caught 4-of-5 targets for 45 yards in the Bengals' Week 4 win over the Dolphins.

    Advice: The catches were a season high. Uzomah has cleared 30 yards in 3-of-4 games, but his moment in the sun is coming to an end with Tyler Eifert expected back for Week 5. There's no real reason to own Uzomah in any format. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm

  • Snead (toe) gets in another limited practice
    Willie Snead (toe) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Snead is on track to return against the Chargers, but it isn't a slam dunk. Unfortunately, the game is at 4:25ET, and the Saints are one of the league's least-honest teams with injury information. Owners can pencil Snead in, but still need to have a back-up plan ready. Daily Slant: With Snead expected to play this weekend, both Michael Thomas and Brandon Coleman aren't viable DFS targets. They combined for 19 targets against Atlanta (Thomas had 11), but they may only receive about half of that assuming Snead is active. Coby Fleener's emergence also diminishes the value of the 3rd WR spot in the Saints offense. Cooks, Snead and Fleener are fine targets against SD, but it's worth noting that the Saints have massive home/road discrepancies. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:44 pm

    Advice: It's just a heads up. Freeman is in zero danger of missing Sunday's game against the Panthers. It's a tough matchup, and Freeman remains in a rotation with Tevin Coleman, but he has too much upside to rank outside the RB2 area of the board. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:31 pm

    Jerick McKinnon (toe) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: The Vikings play on Monday night so this was their first practice of the week. Clearly McKinnon is over the toe injury that bothered him earlier this month. McKinnon collected 45 yards 16 carries in last week's win over Carolina. Though he might lose red zone work to Matt Asiata, McKinnon is still in the RB2/3 conversation.

  • Rivera says J-Stew could miss four weeks
    Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) could miss up to four weeks.

    Advice: Including this week's absence, Stewart has now missed 25 games since the start of 2012. Stewart is an effective workhorse when healthy but that's rarely been the case. Cameron Artis-Payne and Fozzy Whittaker saw similar workloads last week with Artis-Payne going for 58 yards on 13 touches while Whittaker tallied 56 yards on 10 touches. Until a frontrunner emerges from the Carolina backfield, it's hard to endorse either of them as anything more than flex plays. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:03 pm

    Tevin Coleman rushed 12 times for 42 yards and three touchdowns in the Falcons' 45-32, Week 3 win over the Saints, adding three catches for 47 yards on three targets.

    Advice: Coleman and Devonta Freeman continued to split the snaps and touches Monday night, but Coleman was the one getting all the scoring chances inside the 10-yard line, with touchdown runs of two, two, and six yards. Freeman owners still have plenty to be happy about after Freeman piled up 207 total yards and a touchdown of his own on 19 touches to Coleman's 15 touches. This offense can support both backs with the tempo it plays at and all the touches it funnels to the two runners. Coleman will be back on the RB2 map next week in a home date with the Panthers.

  • Devonta Freeman piles up 207 yards, TD on MNF
    Devonta Freeman rushed 14 times for 152 yards and caught 5-of-5 targets for 55 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons' 45-32, Week 3 win over the Saints on Monday night.

    Advice: It was about as perfect a stat line as one can have against the Saints' not-there defense. Freeman and Tevin Coleman continued to split snaps as they had the first two weeks, but Freeman ran with anger right out of the gates. On his first carry, Freeman shoved CB Sterling Moore to the ground with a violent stiff-arm, and it only got better from there. Two of Freeman's three longest career runs came Monday night, as he broke off 36- and 48-yard gains, running through gaping holes all evening. His touchdown came on a walk-in, 13-yard swing pass. Backfield mate Tevin Coleman did have three rushing scores of his own, but Freeman owners will be extremely happy with this performance. Keep firing him up as an RB2 next week vs. Carolina.

    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.

  • Jerick McKinnon bottled up for 47 yards
    Jerick McKinnon rushed 16 times for 45 yards in the Vikings' Week 3 win over the Panthers, adding one catch for two yards.

    Advice: Matt Asiata got the "start," but McKinnon out-touched him 17-7 and out-snapped him 36-19. Yards were just extremely hard to come by behind the Vikings' truly pathetic offensive line, which lost LG Alex Boone to a hip injury early in the proceedings. McKinnon has a major leg up on Asiata — except for perhaps in short-yardage situations — but will face more tough sledding against the Giants' improved defense in Week 4.

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.

    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.

  • 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

  • J-Stew (hamstring) officially out for Week 3
    Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) is officially out for Week 3 against the Vikings.

    Advice: Coach Ron Rivera said he expects Stewart to miss about 2-3 weeks. Cameron Artis-Payne will serve as the starter during his absence, though Fozzy Whittaker and Mike Tolbert are also expected to have roles. Artis-Payne will be little more than an RB3/4 against the Vikings' stout run defense. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:13 am

  • Snead's Thursday absence due to toe injury
    Willie Snead is dealing with a toe injury.

    Advice: It's what held Snead out of Thursday's practice. At least right now, we don't have reason to believe Snead will miss Monday's game against the Saints, but we need more information. Toe injuries are no laughing matter. Snead played 54-of-65 snaps against the Giants in Week 2. Even a "limited" session Friday would put him on track to play. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:42 pm

  • Snead missing from Saints practice Thursday
    Willie Snead (undisclosed) was absent from the portion of Saints practice open to the media on Thursday.

    Advice: It's the Saints' first practice of the week, as they're playing in the Monday night game. It's possible Snead isn't injured and is away from the team on personal business, but that's not the most-likely scenario. It's also not the "veteran's day" portion of the season for a 23 year old. Snead's status will be updated soon. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:07 pm

  • Gruden: Friday practice will be key for D-Jax
    Redskins coach Jay Gruden says DeSean Jackson's (knee, ankle) Friday practice will be key in determining his Week 3 status.

    Advice: "With a sprinter like that, he needs to be full go," Gruden said, suggesting D-Jax's limited Thursday participation wasn't enough. Gruden said a few deep balls will be fed to Jackson on Friday to see if he's "full speed." Owners can keep Jackson penciled in as their WR3, but need to have an alternative ready.

  • Ebron (back) returns to Thursday's practice
    Eric Ebron (back) returned to practice on Thursday.

    Advice: He was officially "limited." Ebron missed Wednesday's session but it was probably just a maintenance day. He'll be a firm TE1 against Green Bay in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:41 am

  • OC: Too early to worry about Forte's workload
    Jets OC Chan Gailey believes it's too early to start monitoring Matt Forte's workload.

    Advice: Forte has gotten the ball 59 times through two games, but Gailey evidently hasn't seen any sign of early-season wear and tear. 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. Forte is playing on 10 days' rest after getting the ball 32 times against the Bills in Week 2. Forte is locked in as a high-end RB1 while he dominates touches. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:13 am

  • Eric Ebron (back) held out on Wednesday
    Eric Ebron (back) didn't practice Wednesday.

    Advice: The missed practice isn't a good sign, but Ebron played 71-of-74 snaps last week. It's possible the Lions are getting him some rest. Ebron is a TE1 for Sunday's matchup with the Packers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:49 pm

  • Jerick McKinnon (toe) practicing in full
    Jerick McKinnon (toe) is practicing in full for Week 3.

    Advice: McKinnon isn't fully healthy, but it hasn't cost him any games. He'll start and get the first chance at replacing Adrian Peterson against Carolina. Matt Asiata remains the favorite for short-yardage and red-zone work. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:32 pm

  • Reid thinks 'another week' will help Charles
    When asked about Jamaal Charles' (knee) status for Week 3, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said "another week is going to help him."

    Advice: Reid said Charles could play "today or tomorrow," but it looks like the Chiefs will err on the side of caution by keeping him out one more week. Charles practiced with the scout team on Wednesday, just as he did last week. With Charles a long shot for Sunday, Spencer Ware should see another heavy workload against the Jets in Week 3.

  • Matt Forte limited on Wednesday
    Matt Forte (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Forte balled out last Thursday night with 109 total yards and three touchdowns on a whopping 32 touches, so he's likely just getting some veteran rest during practice. He's a locked-in RB1 this week against the Chiefs. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:29 pm

  • DeSean Jackson (knee, ankle) DNP on Wednesday
    DeSean Jackson (knee, ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Jay Gruden said Jackson's injury happened around the third quarter in the Week 2 loss to the Cowboys. Jackson was at practice Wednesday, but was merely a spectator. If he plays Week 3 against the Giants, Jackson will be hard to trust as more than a boom-or-bust WR3 in a tough matchup. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:50 am

  • 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

  • Jamaal Charles again w/ scout team Wednesday
    Jamaal Charles (knee) is again working with the scout team at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Coach Andy Reid said Charles is getting better every day, and he'll get a couple first-team reps at Wednesday's practice. But he's still not ready. Odds are it will be Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West against the Jets. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:06 am

  • McKinnon officially named Vikings starting RB
    Coach Mike Zimmer confirmed Jerick McKinnon will be the Vikings' starting running back moving forward.

    Advice: As expected. McKinnon will get the first crack at replacing Adrian Peterson after it was revealed he needs likely season-ending surgery to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee. Expect McKinnon and Matt Asiata to form a sort of committee with Asiata the favorite for short-yardage and goal-line work, though that's not set in stone. McKinnon is the top waiver add this week.
