  • Jordan Reed could be 'weeks' away from return
    NBC Sports' JP Finlay reports Jordan Reed (concussion) could be out "weeks."

    Advice: Reed is understandably taking his time with a return from his preseason concussion. The tight end has been a limited participant in some practice drills, but he's still not cleared for contact. At some point, the Redskins will have to debate placing him on injured reserve, though that hasn't been reported quite yet. Vernon Davis will continue to start in his absence.

  • Asking price for Jalen Ramsey is 'too high'
    NFL Media's Mike Garafolo reports it "doesn’t look like anyone is going to match" the Jaguars' asking price for CB Jalen Ramsey.

    Advice: Garafolo and Ian Rapoport believe there aren't serious trade talks right now because the Jaguars aren't lowering their asking price of two first-round picks. Rapoport also notes the longer Ramsey stays, the higher chance he remains on the team long term. Jaguars owner Shad Khan "loves" Ramsey and "wants to pay him," so it's possible Ramsey's trade demands aren't met. Teams will likely circle back with the Jaguars after Week 3's slate of games.

    Chargers downgraded K Mike Badgley (groin) to doubtful.

    Advice: The Chargers are currently set to use their punter to kick field goals once again. That decision arguably cost the Bolts a win last week, but it's completely #OnBrand. Badgley should be viewed as questionable for Week 4. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:31 pm

    Advice: Pineiro suffered a minor knee injury in the weight room earlier, but he was able to kick during Saturday's practice. Coach Matt Nagy said, "I really do think it’ll be OK." The Bears do have a game on Monday Night Football, so if you want to play it extra safe for fantasy, it would be best to find a Sunday replacement if there are capable kickers on the waiver wire.

Ansah's snaps still figure to be limited in his first game, but his return is a boost to Seattle's defensive line. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:13 am

Elliott should regain his every-down status this week, but it's possible he's rested in the second half of a projected blowout. Elliott is our No. 4 running back play for Week 3.

  • Patriots to void Brown's $9M signing bonus
    ESPN Boston reports Antonio Brown is unlikely to get any of his $9 million signing bonus from the Patriots.

    Advice: The Patriots plan to use the "representation warranty clause" to void Brown's signing bonus. Brown didn't disclose he was dealing with an off-field situation before signing with New England, which they view as a breach of contract. The NFLPA could file a grievance, but it sounds like Brown may only end up with his $1 million salary, two game checks ($125K), and a $33,333 roster bonus. Since Brown was released after June 1, any money the Patriots owe can be spread out over the next two years. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:32 pm

    Aaron Donald (back) is questionable for the Rams' Week 3 matchup against the Browns.

    Advice: Donald injured his back in Week 2, but managed to return to action. He was limited in practice throughout the week, but we fully expect him to suit up Sunday night against the Browns. Coach Sean McVay noted that, "Aaron's feeling good. It's probably more semantics than anything else." Donald's likely presence is bad news for the Browns' faulty offensive line, which has allowed eight sacks through two weeks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:33 pm

    Advice: The Pats confirmed the move with the following statement: "The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time." The move comes amidst increasingly disturbing reports regarding Brown's involvement in various sexual assault accusations. The Patriots will move forward with Josh Gordon, Julian Edelman and Phillip Dorsett in 3-WR sets. There is a strong chance 31-year-old Brown never plays another down of NFL football.

  • Report: Jaguars owner wants to extend Ramsey
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jaguars owner Shad Khan "loves" Jalen Ramsey and "wants to pay him."

    Advice: The Jaguars are still expected to trade Ramsey, but this gives some hope the situation can be worked out. Ramsey's issues are with EVP Tom Coughlin and not the coaching staff. If he's not extended, Jacksonville is targeting a pair of first-round picks for the two-time Pro Bowler. Kansas City, the Eagles, Raiders, Ravens, Seahawks and Vikings have been the most aggressive teams linked to Ramsey. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:19 am

  • Report: Antonio Brown harasses latest accuser
    Sports Illustrated's Robert Klemko reports Antonio Brown sent harassing text messages to the unnamed accuser who shared allegations of his unwanted advance toward her in 2017.

    Advice: Brown allegedly sent intimidating messages in a group text, including a screenshot of her kids. The accuser's lawyer has sent a letter to the NFL asking them to step in. This is the latest incident that puts Brown's status with the league in jeopardy, as the Personal Conduct Policy prohibits "harassment, or similar forms of intimidation." With a potential placement on the commissioner's exempt list hanging over him, Brown's Week 3 availability looks up in the air. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:05 am

    Advice: Kirksey is out for Week 3. It sounds like he might have a pec issue. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports surgery is a possibility. The wording of Kitchens' statement suggests Kirksey could be facing a lengthy absence, perhaps necessitating a move to I.R.

    Advice: It means Shepard will be good to go for Daniel Jones' first start after missing Week 2.

  • Ramsey doesn't expect to be on Jags next week
    According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Jalen Ramsey "doesn't anticipate" being a member of the Jaguars beyond Week 3.

    Advice: Ramsey's trade request stems from conflict with executive VP Tom Coughlin. Why the Jaguars would expose their star to injury on Thursday night if they intend on trading him immediately after is beyond our comprehension, though it appears Ramsey will be in uniform versus Tennessee. Per Anderson, the Chiefs, Eagles, Raiders, Ravens, Seahawks and Vikings have been the most aggressive in their pursuit of Ramsey, though "almost every team" has called the Jaguars to gauge his availability. Jacksonville is reportedly seeking a king's ransom for Ramsey, eying a pair of first-rounders as compensation for the two-time Pro Bowler. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:38 am

    Giants WR Sterling Shepard is expected to clear the concussion protocol Thursday.

    Advice: The return of the Giants' No. 1 WR would be much appreciated ahead of their Week 3 matchup against the Buccaneers. Still, it remains unclear what rookie Daniel Jones' pass-game pecking order will look like. Shepard is fully expected to work as the offense's No. 1 WR, but he could still wind up with a fairly mundane target share behind TE Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley. All of the Giants WRs are best approached with extreme caution in this spot. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:26 am

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jalen Ramsey is unlikely to be traded prior to Thursday night's Week 3 game against the Titans.

    Advice: RapSheet notes Friday is the most likely day for Ramsey to be dealt. It remains unclear if Ramsey will actually play Thursday night, but he did say he's preparing as if he'll be out there. If he gets hurt, however, then that would obviously ruin any potential deal. Also, if he plays Thursday and is traded Friday, there's almost no way he could again suit up for his new team Sunday to play two games in essentially three days.

    Advice: As they should for a 25-year-old No. 1 corner capable of eliminating No. 1 wideouts. Ramsey requested a trade, but he insisted Tuesday it was not his camp who leaked the news. Ramsey is disillusioned in Jacksonville, especially with the amount of zone coverage he must play under DC Todd Wash.

Reports are that Jacksonville has already received offers from both an undisclosed NFC and AFC team that includes a 2020 first-round selection and/or a fifth and player to be named, so time will tell if Ramsey's status in Florida holds.

    Advice: For what it's worth, locked-in Chiefs reporter Terez Paylor recently noted he wouldn't expect Kansas City to make a "hard push" for Ramsey. With Patrick Mahomes' and Chris Jones' long-term deals still being worked on, capital to pay up for the former No. 5 overall pick would be hard to come by. Nevertheless, the Chiefs are undoubtedly in the market for help along the sidelines. The 24-year-old Pro Bowler should garner a first-round selection (if not multiple) if traded by end of week.

    Advice: One source told Schefter he believes the team could trade Ramsey this week. Ramsey wants a mega extension -- one he absolutely deserves -- and the Jaguars have yet to give him one after he came to training camp in an armored Brinks truck, a display that obviously made known his desire for more money. The sideline dust-up with coach Doug Marrone Sunday in Houston was the final straw, and Ramsey seems adamant in his wish to be traded. Things should get interesting. Contenders will surely be ringing Tom Coughlin and GM Dave Caldwell in the coming hours. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:30 pm

  • Jalen Ramsey seeks trade out of Jacksonville
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jalen Ramsey has requested a trade following the Jaguars' Week 2 loss to the Texans that involved a sideline altercation with coach Doug Marrone.

    Advice: The Jaguars are already going up in flames following an 0-2 start after so much promise heading into the season. They lost Nick Foles for 2-3 months with a broken collarbone before he could even play half of a game in his new digs, and then the team went and laid an egg in Houston against a Texans team that was begging to lose. Ramsey locked down DeAndre Hopkins in the game, but he and Marrone got in a heated screaming match on the sideline, forcing the two to be separated by other defensive backs. Ramsey is signed through 2020 and has yet to get an extension from the Jaguars. The team is already quitting on Marrone. Again. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:17 pm

  • Second accuser alleges misconduct by Brown
    Sports Illustated's Robert Klemko reports Antonio Brown is facing sexual misconduct allegations from a second accuser stemming from an incident in 2017.

    Advice: The accuser (whose name Klemko did not reveal on the condition of anonymity) was commissioned to paint a mural at Brown's home when AB spoke to her while allegedly naked except for a hand cloth covering his genitals. Klemko goes on to describe numerous instances where Brown reneged on agreements, inventing sources of conflict to get out of paying chefs, publicists, trainers, valets, personal assistants and even a charity. Aside from stiffing his employees, the article also alleges Brown intentionally passed gas in a doctor's face during a check-up and allowed party guests to freely smoke marijuana in the presence of his children while repeatedly "ghosting" those he owed money.

  • Antonio (4-56-1) stars in New England debut
    Antonio Brown soaked up four catches for 56 yards and a touchdown on eight targets while also chipping in a five-yard run on his lone rushing attempt Sunday in the Patriots’ Week 2 win over Miami.

    Advice: As promised, the Pats made a concerted effort to feed him early, gifting Brown three targets, which he converted for 36 yards and three catches, on the opening drive. Brown's touchdown—the first of his career not thrown by Ben Roethlisberger—came on a 20-yard back-shoulder throw from Tom Brady. Brown may have gotten away with a push-off on Jomal Wiltz, but it was still an impressive grab. The Miami native faltered after the break, however, coming up empty on each of his four second-half targets including a missed end-zone connection with Brady. AB didn't see a full complement of snaps in his Patriots debut (he was in on just 24-of-71 offensive plays) as the Pats leaned heavily on their ground game after building an early lead. Brown is still dealing with the fallout from recent sexual assault allegations, but it looks like he'll avoid the commissioner's exempt list, at least until the league concludes its investigation. AB will be on the WR1/2 map when he faces the Jets in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:47 pm

  • Zeke eats for 23/111/1 in Cowboys' Week 2 win
    Ezekiel Elliott handled 23 carries for 111 yards and one touchdown, chipping in two catches for nine yards in the Cowboys' Week 2 victory over Washington.

    Advice: Elliott put this one away in the fourth with an explosive 27-yard run on third-and-five to seal Dallas' second straight win. Although the former holdout split touches evenly with rookie Tony Pollard in Week 1, Elliott was the clear-cut starter against the Redskins, out-touching the fourth-rounder 25-5. With Elliott presumably back on an every-down schedule moving forward, he's undeniably a top three option at his position next Sunday against Miami's tanking defensive trenches.

    Advice: P Ty Long will once again handle kicking duties for the Chargers and is not a recommended fantasy option. Also inactive for the Bols are QB Easton Stick, S Roderic Teamer, CB Michael Davis, LB Jatavis Brown, TE Hunter Henry and DT Cortez Broughton. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:54 am

  • Antonio Brown began settlement talks in April
    According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Antonio Brown began settlement talks with Britney Taylor in April including mediation in May, but ultimately chose not to sign an agreement that would have paid his accuser over $2 million.

    Advice: The deadline for a settlement was last Sunday at 10 PM. When Brown declined the terms, Taylor filed a civil suit in Florida, seeking damages for three incidents of alleged sexual assault. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday, a day after Brown's Patriots contact became official. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport previously reported that New England was unaware of any settlement talks between Brown and his accuser while adding that owner Robert Kraft wouldn't have signed off on his deal had he known AB was facing such allegations. The controversial receiver will make his Patriots debut Sunday against Miami. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:18 am

  • Seahawks to be without Ziggy Ansah (shoulder)
    Ezekiel Ansah (questionable, shoulder) is not expected to play Week 2 against the Steelers.

    Advice: The news comes as a mild surprise after Ansah put in full practices on both Thursday and Friday. It appears he'll have to wait another week to make his Seahawks debut. Ben Roethlisberger should let out a sigh of relief with Ansah absent from Seattle's pass-rush, though he'll still have to contend with Jadeveon Clowney, who sacked Andy Dalton for a two-yard loss in last week's opener.

    Advice: Badgley's right groin is still giving him trouble, though the Chargers tentatively expect him back against the Texans in Week 3. In the interim, punter Ty Long will add kicking to his list of responsibilities Sunday in Detroit. Long converted all three of his PATs as well as a 40-yarder in last week's nail-biter against the Colts. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:45 am

    Advice: Ansah was upgraded to full participation at Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday. Seattle could opt to play it safe by giving Ansah another week to prepare, but there's a good chance we'll see him make his Seahawks debut Sunday at Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:26 pm

    Advice: Austin played 25-of-68 (37%) snaps in the Cowboys' Week 1 win over the Giants. He's tentatively expected to be replaced as a punt returner by WR Cedric Wilson. The Cowboys will continue to utilize Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Randall Cobb in 3-WR sets. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:20 pm

    Advice: Perhaps Reed will be able to clear the concussion protocol by the time the Redskins face off with the Bears in Week 3. Vernon Davis will continue to work as the team's featured TE against a Cowboys defense that was eviscerated by Evan Engram to the tune of an 11-116-1 line in Week 1. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:41 am

    Jordan Reed (concussion) wasn't spotted at practice Friday.

    Advice: There was reportedly optimism surrounding Reed's chances at suiting up for the Redskins' Week 2 matchup against the Cowboys, but now the arrow is pointing in the opposite direction. Vernon Davis had a near-every-down role last week with Reed sidelined, playing 81% of the offense's snaps while catching 4-of-7 targets for 59 yards and a mesmerizing tackle-breaking TD. He's set up well against a Cowboys defense that allowed Evan Engram to hang an 11-116-1 line in Week 1. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:32 am

    Sterling Shepard (concussion) is out for Week 2 against the Bills.

    Advice: It was looking this way after Shepard sat out practice on both Wednesday and Thursday. He remains in the league's concussion protocol. Meanwhile Cody Latimer is questionable with a calf injury. Between their recent string of injuries and Golden Tate's four-game suspension, New York's pass-catching corps is going to be dangerously shorthanded against Buffalo. This is your cue to hammer Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley into your DFS lineups. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:38 am

    According to Ben Standig of The Athletic, there is now "less hope" of Jordan Reed (concussion) returning in Week 2.

    Advice: Redskins coach Jay Gruden was "very optimistic" about Reed's status earlier this week, but he's been mum on the subject the past few days. The Redskins added Donald Parham to their practice squad Thursday as insurance for Reed, who has yet to get in a full practice while working through the concussion protocol. Vernon Davis will be in the streaming discussion if Reed can't go Sunday versus Dallas. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:30 am

    ESPN's John Keim reports there is "more optimism" surrounding Jordan Reed's (concussion) status this week.

    Advice: Reed got in another limited practice on Thursday. The Redskins' offense showed surprisingly well in Philadelphia last week, but Reed's return would provide a major boost. Reed will be a low-ceiling TE2 if he manages to get cleared. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:52 am

Austin logged 25 snaps in last week's opener but was held to one catch for eight yards in the win over New York. Devin Smith could be in line for a bigger role if Austin isn't cleared for Sunday's game in Washington. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:14 am

  • Cowboys 'mindful' of Zeke's limited practices
    Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said the team will "be mindful of how little practice time" Ezekiel Elliott had this summer.

    Advice: Elliott totaled 63 yards on 11 touches in Week 1 but only played 54 percent of Dallas' offensive snaps. The league's highest-paid back claims he's ready for his "normal workload", but Garrett said the team will 'still' be mindful of Elliott's reps, essentially hinting at another 60/40 split with rookie Tony Pollard (13/24) being involved off the bench. With the Cowboys being listed as 5-point road favorites, it's certainly plausible Elliott's featured in the first half only to give way to Pollard down the stretch. Zeke remains a fringe top-10 option as long as he's splitting carries. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:49 pm

    Jordan Reed (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol.

    Advice: Reed worked out along the sidelines Wednesday but has yet to be cleared to practice. Vernon Davis unsurprisingly performed well in his spot-start against the Eagles in Week 1, catching 4-of-7 targets for 59 yards and one score. The veteran's quietly averaged five targets per game in the 16 contests he's played without Reed in Washington. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:54 am

  • Sterling Shepard (concussion) DNP Wednesday
    Sterling Shepard (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Shepard has been experiencing concussion symptoms since after the Week 1 loss to the Cowboys. He remains day to day, but his week isn't off to a good start in terms of his availability against the Bills. If Shepard sits, the Giants would be down to Cody Latimer, Bennie Fowler, and T.J. Jones at receiver. Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley would carry the lion's share of the load. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:29 am
