    Advice: Avant was more involved after a quiet opener with Derek Anderson under center, securing 5-of-7 targets from Cam Newton against the Lions. Avant is not worth grabbing in fantasy leagues as the Panthers' No. 3 receiver behind Kelvin Benjamin and Jerricho Cotchery, and No. 4 option when you include Greg Olsen as well. Rotoworld.com

    Tavon Austin suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of Sunday's Week 2 game against the Bucs.

    Advice: Austin's knee got twisted and bent up beneath him on short pass while being tackle by Mark Barron. It looked like it could potentially be serious. Austin hobbled off, but we may not see him the rest of the afternoon. Austin had a gain of 18 yards on an end-around earlier in the game, but that was about it. Rotoworld.com

    Roddy White caught 5-of-8 targets for 42 yards in the Falcons' Week 2 loss to the Bengals.

    Advice: It was a quiet day for White in a game where the Falcons' passing attack could never get on track. White now has 10 grabs for 114 yards and a touchdown through two games. It's a slower start than we envisioned, but White still has WR1 upside for an offense that's going to throw all day long. The Falcons are hosting the Bucs for Thursday Night Football in Week 3.

    Advice: Charles hobbled to the training table in the first quarter before making his way to the locker room. He didn't need a cart, but Charles could be dealing with a sprain. Knile Davis has been filling in admirably for Charles, tallying 76 yards and one touchdown on 17 touches with over 9:00 left in the first quarter. Charles should be considered highly questionable for Week 3. Davis would immediately enter into the RB1 conversation as the offensive centerpiece. Rotoworld.com

    Andre Ellington gained 91 yards on 15 carries and caught 1-of-3 targets for 10 yards in the Cardinals' Week 2 win over the Giants.

    Advice: Ellington ripped off a number of big plays on the ground, but lost nine carries to Jonathan Dwyer, including a valuable goal-line plunge. Through two weeks, Ellington has rarely been a part of Arizona's red-zone offense, which is a major concern for his fantasy value in standard (non-PPR leagues). He's more of an RB2/flex in those scoring systems. He's an every-week RB2 in PPR. The Cardinals will take on San Francisco's depleted defense next. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The Chiefs' offensive line got no movement in the run game and Charles was obviously underutilized on a day where Donnie Avery was targeted 13 times. This isn't the way Kansas City needs to play to be competitive on a weekly basis. Put simply, Charles needs the ball more. He takes on the Broncos next in what may be a difficult matchup, but should be a high-scoring game. Rotoworld.com

  • Tavon Austin totals 39 yards on six touches
    Tavon Austin caught all three of his targets for 34 yards in the Rams' Week 1 loss to the Vikings.

    Advice: He added five yards rushing on three carries, as the Rams lined Austin up in the backfield a couple times. The Rams simply aren't getting enough out of Austin. He doesn't create space or make defenders miss on a regular enough basis, and OC Brian Schottenheimer isn't creative enough to make anything work. Austin's main impact will come on punt returns as a sophomore. He's not start-able outside of deep leagues or return-yardage formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Streater leads Raiders in receiving Week 1
    Rod Streater caught five passes for 46 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders' Week 1 loss to the Jets.

    Advice: Streater led the team in catches and yards while seeing a team-high seven targets. The Raiders kept it easy for Derek Carr, limiting him to high-percentage throws in the short-to-intermediate levels. That's where Streater makes his money. On his touchdown, Streater turned a flat route into a 12-yard score to put the Raiders up 7-3 in the first quarter. If Streater isn't scoring touchdowns, then there really isn't much upside. He's a WR4/5. Rotoworld.com

  • DeSean Jackson used underneath in WAS debut
    DeSean Jackson caught eight passes for 62 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss at Houston.

    Advice: Making his Redskins debut, Jackson was simply a YAC guy. The Redskins threw him quick passes behind the line of scrimmage and asked him to make the first guy miss, which he typically did. Surprisingly, there weren't any deep shots to Jackson -- probably because RG3 had J.J. Watt in his grill the whole game. D-Jax will be a borderline WR2 in a better matchup at home against the Jags in Week 2. Rotoworld.com

  • Joe Flacco struggles against Bengals defense
    Joe Flacco completed 35-of-62 passes for 345 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in the Ravens' Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

    Advice: He added seven yards on the ground and took three sacks. At the end of a miserable, 10-for-23 first half, Flacco made a brutal mental error, continuing to scramble outside the pocket with the Ravens in field goal range, and ultimately throwing an incompletion into the dirt as time expired. He cost his team three points. Flacco also tossed a terribly ill-advised interception to Bengals LB Emmanuel Lamur early in the third quarter. He did rebound to hit Steve Smith for an 80-yard touchdown in the fourth frame, but overall this was an unimpressive performance from Baltimore's entire offense. Flacco will be a low-end QB2 option in Week 2 against the Steelers. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Davis shell-shocked in relief of Hill
    Austin Davis completed 16-of-23 passes for 192 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in relief of Shaun Hill (thigh) in the Rams' 34-6, Week 1 loss to Minnesota.

    Advice: Davis opened the second half at quarterback after the Rams said Hill suffered a thigh injury. We're not believing it, as Hill was flat-out terrible in the first half. Davis wasn't much better. He took four sacks and tossed an 81-yard pick-six to Harrison Smith in the fourth quarter. The Rams are in for a nightmare season with these two at quarterback. Case Keenum will likely be called on to make starts in the very near future. Davis isn't a fantasy option in Week 2 at Tampa. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Fiedorowicz blocks mostly in start
    C.J. Fiedorowicz had no catches on one target in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Redskins.

    Advice: With Garrett Graham (back) sidelined, Fiedorowicz started. But he was mostly an in-line blocker, leaving Ryan Griffin to do the "move" things. Rotoworld.com

  • Dri Archer leaves game with two injuries
    Steelers RB/KR Dri Archer was forced from Sunday's game against the Browns with left knee and ankle injuries.

    Advice: He was immediately ruled out. Archer had one touch on offense before going down. He returned two kicks. Standing in at 5-foot-8, 173 pounds, it's not a good sign that the third-rounder got hurt in his first NFL game. Rotoworld.com

  • Arian gets 29 touches and 120 yards in win
    Arian Foster rushed 27 times for 103 yards and caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's 14-6 Week 1 win over the Redskins.

    Advice: Just as the Texans had promised all season, Foster was an unquestioned workhorse (Jonathan Grimes and Alfred Blue combined for two touches). He didn't find many big lanes to get through and lost a fumble in the red zone, but ran with power while looking truly 100 percent. Sustaining health will be a question here, but the schedule is appetizing. Foster will be a RB1 against the Raiders next week, and also gets to face Dallas in Week 5. Rotoworld.com

  • Suspended WR Welker cleared from concussion
    Suspended WR Wes Welker has been medically cleared from his concussion.

    Advice: If Welker's four-game suspension gets peeled back by the league's new drug policy, Welker will be ready to play. Welker will be inactive regardless for Sunday night's game against the Colts, even if the NFL and NFLPA reach a new agreement before the contest. Welker should remain rostered in all leagues.
