  • Scotty Miller (hip) left off final injury report
    Bucs WR Scotty Miller (hip) was left off the final injury report ahead of Week 3 against the Broncos.

    Advice: Miller will be the No. 3 receiver, albeit a distant one, for the Bucs moving forward with Chris Godwin cleared following an early-season concussion. Even with Justin Watson (shoulder) ruled out for Week 3, Miller can't be trusted in fantasy lineups for the foreseeable future. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:27 pm

  • Malcolm Brown (pinky) left off final injury report
    Malcolm Brown (finger) was left off the final injury report ahead of Week 3.

    Advice: Brown left late in Week 2 with a pinky injury that needed surgical repair early this week. It's a common procedure in the NFL, one that has a very quick turnaround. Brown was able to practice in full each of the last two days and shouldn't be too limited in Week 3's contest in Buffalo. Brown was out-dueled by Darrell Henderson in Week 2, but the veteran was the starter in each of the first two games and is more trusted in pass protection. Neither Brown nor Henderson offer any floor given McVay's hot hand approach, but the Rams' league-high neutral run rate (62%) gives them flex consideration if in a pinch. Cam Akers (ribs) has been ruled out. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:58 pm

  • Tyrod (accidentally punctured lung) officially out
    Tyrod Taylor (lung) is out for Week 3 against the Panthers.

    Advice: Justin Herbert will fill in for Taylor, who may have watched his starting job get taken from him last week while in a hospital bed for no fault of his own. The Chargers medical staff accidentally punctured his lung while giving him a pain injection an hour before Week 2. Taylor could be ready to return for Week 4, but if Herbert plays as well as he did last week, we'd assume the Chargers stick with their first-round rookie despite coach Anthony Lynn's soft spot for the bridge quarterback.

  • Darren Waller (knee) questionable for Week 3
    Darren Waller (knee) is questionable for Week 3 against the Patriots after returning to Friday's practice and getting in a limited session. 

    Advice: Waller will be good to go in New England, but it is unclear what percent he will be at physically after soaking up a ridiculous 16 targets against the Saints on Monday. Patriots coach Bill Belichick sung Waller's praises this week, a not-so-subtle indication he will be a focal point of the defensive game plan. At seemingly less than 100 percent going up against a defensive maestro, Waller probably belongs more in the TE5-6 range than TE3-4.  Rotoworld.com Today, 3:11 pm

  • Sammy Watkins still in concussion protocol Friday
    Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol.

    Advice: Saturday's practice report will be key for Watkins. Coach Andy Reid recently said the 27-year-old's injury is "more neck now than the other part," suggesting Watkins could still sit Monday night even if he's cleared from the league's protocol. Mecole Hardman, who recorded a 22-yard catch and three targets once Watkins exited in Week 2, would rotate with Demarcus Robinson if given the nod. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:23 pm

  • Fangio: Jeudy (ribs) will be game time call
    Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said WR Jerry Jeudy will be a game time decision for Week 3 against the Bucs. 

    Advice: Jeudy was listed as questionable. He was targeted seven times last week against the Steelers. If he's inactive this Sunday, rookie KJ Hamler -- who made his debut last week -- becomes a sneaky fantasy play. The speedy wideout could default into volume in what's likely to be a pass heavy Denver offense. Hamler got seven targets while playing 62 percent of the team's offensive snaps in Week 2.  Rotoworld.com Today, 1:55 pm

    Advice: Akers won't be able to go a week after exiting early with a rib injury suffered against the Eagles. Darrell Henderson stepped in after Akers' Week 2 injury and turned 14 touches into 121 yards. He shapes up as a solid RB2 this week against the Bills.  Rotoworld.com Today, 1:47 pm

  • Jets WR Berrios (hammy) questionable for Week 3
    Jets WR Braxton Berrios (hamstring) is questionable for Week 3 against the Colts. 

    Advice: Someone get Laveranues Coles on the phone. The Jets' receiver injury bug has infected Berrios, who caught a touchdown on eight targets last week against the Niners. If Berrios is inactive this week, Chris Hogan could stumble into considerable volume. We're not sure if that matters or not. Jets wideouts should be avoided outside of 20-team fantasy leagues.  Rotoworld.com Today, 1:20 pm

  • Darrynton Evans (hamstring) cleared for debut
    Titans RB Darrynton Evans was removed from the team's injury report.

    Advice: Evans practiced in full on Friday and is expected to make his debut behind Derrick Henry as the team's third-down back. Henry has out-targeted Jeremy McNichols 5 to 1 to this point, simultaneously tying Josh Jacobs for the league lead in running back touches (59), but the King's receiving-game role could change with Evans suddenly in the fold. It's something to monitor in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:09 pm

    Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is questionable for Week 3 against the Cardinals. 

    Advice: Golladay on Friday told reporters he's not 100 percent headed into Week 3. We're cautiously optimistic Babytron will be active, though a snap count might be in order as he comes back from a fairly serious hamstring injury. If he's active, fantasy managers should plug him into their lineups unless they're loaded at wide receiver.  Rotoworld.com Today, 1:09 pm

    Patriots RB James White (personal) is out for Week 3 against the Raiders. 

    Advice: It's unclear when White will return to the team after his father died in a car accident last weekend. His mother was in critical condition after the accident. With White out last week, Rex Burkhead played 71 percent of the team's offensive snaps and saw six targets. He'll be a desperation flex option against the Raiders this week.  Rotoworld.com Today, 1:06 pm

  • Henry Ruggs (knee, hamstring) out for Week 3
    Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (knee, hamstring) is out for Week 3 against the Patriots. 

    Advice: The rookie was downgraded to "limited" in Thursday's practice -- an ominous sign for his Week 3 availability. He wasn't able to practice Friday. Ruggs wasn't getting much opportunity in the Vegas offense -- he has a 9 percent target share -- but the Raiders will miss his speed against New England. Bryan Edwards or Nelson Agholor could see a little more opportunity with Ruggs out.  Rotoworld.com Today, 12:43 pm

    Advice: Jones didn't practice Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Jones be a game-time call for Atlanta this week. Fantasy managers might have to roll with a gimpy Julio if he's active. The Falcons play at 1 p.m. EST Sunday. If he's unable to play, Russell Gage can be confidently started as an upside WR3.

  • Justin Jackson (quad) doubtful to face Panthers
    Chargers RB Justin Jackson (quad) is doubtful for Week 3 against the Panthers.

    Advice: Joshua Kelley and Austin Ekeler will again work in a tandem after handling 25 and 20 touches respectively in Week 2. Jackson's inevitable absence is terrific news for the rookie in particular, who played 52% of the team's snaps against the Chiefs. Ekeler remains a safe RB1 whereas Kelley is an RB2/3 in a terrific spot against Carolina's front-seven, which has been pummeled for the most fantasy points allowed to opposing backfields.

  • Jerry Jeudy questionable, expected to play Week 3
    Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ribs) is questionable for Week 3 against the Bucs. 

    Advice: The rookie wideout is expected to play. Jeudy caught 4-of-7 targets for 62 yards last week against the Steelers in Courtland Sutton's absence. With Sutton done for the year, Jeudy could vacuum up a good amount of volume in an offense that will probably have to throw it a bunch from here on out. He's worthy of flex consideration this week against Tampa.  Rotoworld.com Today, 12:04 pm

  • Kenny Golladay says he's not 100 percent
    Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) said he's not 100 percent but hopes to play in Week 3 against the Cardinals. 

    Advice: Golladay, expected to make his season debut this week, conceded he's not at full health. “Definitely feeling a lot better. Wouldn’t say it’s 100 percent, I really wouldn’t even put a percentage on it," Golladay said. "I just know I’m not 100 percent. I’m going to do everything I can and hopefully I showed enough (in practice this week) that I can be out there.” There's certainly a chance the Lions will limit Babytron's snaps in his return from a nagging hamstring injury. If he's active, fantasy managers should plug him into their lineups unless they're loaded at wide receiver.  Rotoworld.com Today, 11:33 am

  • Justin Jackson (quad) returns to Chargers practice
    Chargers RB Justin Jackson (quad) returned to practice Friday.

    Advice: His official designation is something to monitor. Joshua Kelley (24% snaps) and Jackson (15%) essentially split time behind Austin Ekeler in Week 1, but it was the rookie who flourished with 23 carries and a backfield-high 25 touches as the 1B back without Jackson versus Kansas City. Unless Kelley has already won the role behind Ekeler, Jackson's pending availability could cut into the former's workload as early as Sunday. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:08 am

  • Julio Jones expected to be game-time decision
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Julio Jones (questionable, hamstring) is a game-time decision for Week 3 against Chicago.

    Advice: Jones had a setback with his hamstring last week and didn't do much in practice. There's a chance he plays at less than 100 percent, but the Falcons may want to rest Jones to get him healthy. Jones had just two catches playing through injury last week. Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage are better bets to lead the Falcons in Week 3 targets.

  • Julio Jones (hamstring) could sit out this week
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Julio Jones (hamstring) is "very much up in the air" for Week 3 against Chicago.

    Advice: Jones re-injured his hamstring in Atlanta's Week 2 loss to Dallas. He hasn't practiced the last two days, casting doubt on his status. Jones has battled hamstring issues since training camp and could sit this week to get healthy. Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage would see higher target shares if Jones is out.

    Advice: That's how Thomas is trending after missing Thursday's practice. The Saints don't want to rule out Thomas but he's less than two weeks into a 2-4 week timetable.

  • Malcolm Brown (finger) returns to full practice
    Malcolm Brown (finger) returned to Rams practice Thursday, getting in a full session. 

    Advice: It means that, barring a setback with his surgically-repaired finger, Brown will be ready to go as part of a 1-2 punch with Darrell Henderson in Buffalo. In theory, Brown projects as the touch leader on early downs, but Henderson was by far the Rams' most effective back in Week 2. We would rather bet on Henderson as an RB2/FLEX in fantasy, leaving Brown as an RB4 wherever possible.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:15 pm

    Rams head coach Sean McVay said RB Cam Akers' recovery from his rib injury isn't coming along as quickly as first anticipated. 

    Advice: Akers, who missed practice again Thursday, sounds unlikely to suit up this week against Buffalo. Darrell Henderson stepped in after Akers' Week 2 injury and turned 14 touches into 121 yards against the Eagles.

  • Ruggs (knee, hamstring) downgraded to 'limited'
    Henry Ruggs (knee, hamstring) was downgraded to "limited" in Thursday's practice. 

    Advice: It's especially concerning since the hamstring designation is new. It's possible this is maintenance following Monday evening's rugged win, but Ruggs should now be considered genuinely questionable to suit up against the Patriots. With Josh Jacobs and Darren Waller yet to practice this week, coach Jon Gruden could be forced to dig into his considerable, if underwhelming, depth on offense. Even if Ruggs does play, at less than 100 percent, he will be a zero-floor WR4 for a tough matchup.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:01 pm

    Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Golladay is trending towards making his season debut, and it couldn't come at a better time for all involved. The Lions offense is on the ropes but finds themselves in a get right spot while chasing points in a fast-paced contest against the Cardinals. Golladay should be treated as a high-ceiling WR2 in Week 3. He has top-10 receiver potential if his hamstring cooperates. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:53 pm

    Darren Waller (knee) did not practice Thursday.

    Advice: That makes it back-to-back days without practice reps for Waller, who currently leads the NFL with a 35% target share. Waller will need to at least get in limited work on Friday to be confidently started. When healthy, Waller is a top-five fantasy tight end on volume alone. The Raiders face New England this weekend.

    Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) did not practice Thursday. 

    Advice: ESPN's Vaughn McClure said Jones, who was hobbled for much of the team's Week 2 game against Dallas, strained his injured hamstring. Jones' hamstring has been a concern since the start of the season, and now it could keep him out for Week 3 against the Bears.

    Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) didn't practice Thursday. 

    Advice: It's hardly surprising, considering Thomas is less than two weeks removed from a high ankle sprain. There doesn't seem to be a great chance Thomas will play this week against the Packers, who could be without their No. 1 wideout Davante Adams. Without Thomas, Alvin Kamara should continue to see massive usage in the passing game. Tre'Quan Smith, targeted seven times last week, becomes the Saints receiver to roster if Thomas is out against Green Bay.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:22 pm

Head coach Andy Reid confirmed Thursday that Watkins is in the NFL's concussion protocol, adding that "it's more neck now than the other part." Presumably the other part is Watkins' brain.

    Advice: Jones has been battling the hammy through the first two weeks, but he's coming off a poor 2-24-0 showing on four targets in the 40-39, Week 2 loss to the Cowboys. He appeared to tweak his hamstring on a dropped touchdown on a wildcat throw from Russell Gage.

    Advice: It means Taylor is dealing with a collapsed lung.

His three targets were tied with two others as a distant second on the team to Darren Waller's 16 targets in this one.

    Advice: Waller was second in the NFL among tight ends in receiving yards last season, but he scored just three touchdowns. It was nice to see him find the end zone from one yard out in the second half on a wide-open play-action pass from Derek Carr. Waller's 16 targets were a commanding 42.1% of the Raiders' market share. No other Raiders pass-catcher saw more than three targets Monday. After two weeks, Waller has 18 catches for 148 yards and the one touchdown on 24 targets. Still Carr's favorite target despite an improved supporting cast, Waller is a volume-driven TE1 who should see positive regression in the touchdown department this season. Waller gets the Patriots on the road in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:41 pm

    Henry Ruggs (knee) is active for Week 2 against the Saints Monday night.

    Advice: Ruggs was listed questionable but was always expected to play after practicing on Saturday. He's likely not 100%, but Ruggs is one of the highest-upside plays on tonight's one-game fantasy slate after the Raiders manufactured him touches and deep shots early in Week 1 before his injury. Inactive for the Raiders are RT Trent Brown, MLB Nick Kwiatkoski, OT Sam Young, WR Rico Gafford, CB Amik Robertson, and DT Daniel Ross. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:53 pm

  • Lynn: Tyrod Taylor gives us the best chance to win
    Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said Tyrod Taylor (ribs) gives the Chargers "the best chance to win."

    Advice: "I know we can win with either quarterback," Lynn said, "but the veteran quarterback right now gives us the best chance to win. It’s not like we won the damn game yesterday. We lost last time I checked.” Herbert was impressive in his debut, completing 22-of-33 passes for 311 yards while breathing life into an offense that appeared dreadful in Week 1, but Lynn is clearly having none of it. Assuming Taylor is cleared from his injection gone awry, he'll be under center in Week 3 against the Panthers. Herbert would qualify as the week's top streamer if given the nod.

    Advice: This was expected after Ruggs participated in the team's Saturday walkthrough. Although Marshon Lattimore, who stifled Mike Evans for a single catch on four targets in Week 1, will likely drape Ruggs throughout the evening, the rookie wideout still ranks as RotoPat's WR49 for his big-play ability at any moment.  Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:46 pm

  • Tyrod misses Week 2 due to rib complications
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Tyrod Taylor (ribs) was inactive for Week 2 against the Chiefs because he experienced complications from a pregame injection.

    Advice: He reportedly suffered a rib injury in practice on Friday and was set to play with a flakjacket on until his pain-killing pregame shot went awry. Coach Anthony Lynn said postgame that Taylor will remain the starter if "he's 100 percent ready to go," but that status is still unclear ahead of Week 3. Rookie Justin Herbert, who impressed with 311 yards and two touchdowns (including one rushing) in his debut, would qualify as Sunday's top streamer if given the green light against the Panthers.

  • Really? Lynn says Tyrod is the starter if healthy
    Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said Tyrod Taylor (chest) will be the starter "if he's 100 percent ready to go."

    Advice: We question if Lynn watched the same Chargers games we did the last two weeks. In the season opener, Taylor was inconsistent against a very beatable Bengals defense. Then Justin Herbert took over in Week 2 against a better Chiefs defense, and the L.A. offense played with more life. Herbert's arm talent looks way better than Taylor's, even if Taylor provides less in-game chaos and great leadership for the locker room. The two are in a heated quarterback battle. Herbert should be the starter in most people's eyes. We'll see how Taylor progresses in Week 3 practices. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:25 pm

  • Sammy Watkins leaves Week 2 after hit to the head
    Sammy Watkins (head) left Week 2 against the Chargers.

    Advice: Watkins was making a play after the catch when he took an unexpected hit to the head by a second defender. It's clearly a concussion-related injury, and we presume he's out for the remainder of the game. Watkins was a huge part of the Week 1 offense, but the Chiefs were slow out of the gate in Week 2. If he misses time, Mecole Hardman becomes far more interesting. Hardman wasn't targeted before Watkins left but had a catch on the very next play. Watkins will have to clear concussion protocol this week to have a shot at playing Week 3's Monday night showdown against the Ravens. It's best to keep Watkins around on fantasy benches for now.

    Braxton Berrios caught 6-of-8 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the 49ers.

    Advice: Berrios scored the Jets' lone touchdown of the day but the toucomes of the game had been decided for over a quarter. He got behind the defense on a Sam Darnold scramble and Darnold hit him in stride for a score. That play may have been the single bright spot in an otherwise ugly showing from the Jets offense. Berrios could have some PPR value going forward as long as Jamison Crowder remains sidelined. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:40 pm

    Advice: His four targets were a distant fourth on the team. Jones also dropped what should have been a 42-yard touchdown on a wildcat throw from Russell Gage. Jones does the dirty work between the 20s but gets all of the attention in the red zone, opening up opportunities for his teammates, as Calvin Ridley scored two more times in this one, and Gage also had an eight-yard score. Jones will look to rebound as a WR1 next week against Chicago. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:35 pm

    Advice: Taylor injured his ribs in pregame warmups, allowing first-round rookie Justin Herbert to make a surprise Week 2 start. The Oregon Duck has looked sharp through two quarters, rushing and throwing for a score already. Herbert was a streaky player in college but has already shown enough in two quarters to give him a good shot at starting in Week 3 and beyond. Taylor could be benched for the remainder of the season.

    Scotty Miller caught 2-of-3 targets for 11 yards in the Bucs' Week 2 win over the Panthers. 

    Advice: Your optimism flopped this week, as MIller's opportunities were limited despite Chris Godwin's absence. The Bucs were in positive gamescript throughout leading 21-0 at halftime, but Miller simply was not as involved this week compared to the season opener.

The rookie has drawn 15 targets over two games and should continue to be an every-week option in 12-team PPR leagues.

  • Malcolm Brown bottled up for 47 yards vs. Eagles
    Malcolm Brown rushed 11 times for 47 yards in the Rams' Week 2 win over the Eagles. 

    Advice: Brown was not targeted in the passing game. Brown once again came off the bench behind Cam Akers, but Akers departed early with a rib injury. Instead of seizing control of the backfield, Brown could only watch as talented second-year pro Darrell Henderson out-touched him 14-11 and out-gained him 121-47. Coach Sean McVay did say afterward that a finger injury limited Brown near the end of the game. Provided Brown himself is healthy, Akers' health uncertainty means Brown should still be locked in for 10-plus touches in Week 3, but it will be for a tough matchup with the Bills. Henderson has immediately established himself as the higher-upside play, and should be a Week 3 waiver priority.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:03 pm

    Tyrod Taylor (chest) is questionable to play Week 2 against the Chiefs.

    Advice: Taylor must have suffered a random injury right before kick off. The announcing booth had no idea of the injury until Justin Herbert took the opening snap. Taylor came out of the locker room with the training staff right as the game kicked off and went directly to the bench. Herbert immediately marched the field and scored a rushing touchdown himself. If this keeps up, it will be Herbert's offense moving forward. This is a surprise. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:30 pm

Akers' arm appeared to be dangling a bit. Despite the "questionable" tag, he is likely done for the day.

    Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is out for Week 2 against the Packers. 

    Advice: Babytron will miss his second straight game with the hamstring injury, opening up a bunch of targets in the Detroit offense. Marvin Jones saw 20 percent of the team's targets last week without Golladay active, but was second to Quintez Cephus, who saw 24 percent of Matthew Stafford's passes. Jones should be plugged into lineups this week and Cephus will likely see another generous snap share that could lead to targets again. The Lions should be playing catch up for much of Sunday's game. That might be excellent for Cephus and Jones.  Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:56 pm

If he's out for Week 2, rookie RB Joshua Kelley becomes an ever-so-slightly better fantasy start against Kansas City. As big underdogs, it's unlikely LA will be able to run the ball all that much with Kelley and Austin Ekeler. Kelley played 24 percent of LA's Week 1 snaps, getting 12 carries.

  • Michael Thomas (ankle) will miss 'several weeks'
    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Michael Thomas (ankle) is expected to "miss several weeks."

    Advice: Thomas' ankle injury is "worse than originally believed." It may be bad enough that Thomas has a short stint on the three-week injured reserve, but Thomas is the type of player to attempt to play through an injury. Still, fantasy managers have to assume he's out the next two weeks, and it's worth noting that the Saints' bye week is Week 6. It's a big blow to a Saints offense that goes as Thomas and Alvin Kamara go, especially with Drew Brees playing as a 41-year-old. While Thomas is sidelined, Emmanuel Sanders needs to be viewed as an upside WR3/4 with Tre'Quan Smith operating as a low-volume deep threat. Smith can be added to deep-league benches.

  • Gruden impressed with Henry Ruggs' toughness
    Raiders coach Jon Gruden came away impressed with Henry Ruggs' toughness after he played through a knee injury Sunday. 

    Advice: “I like the fact that he came back and played through something,” Gruden said. “That’s what the great ones do. They play through pain, they play through difficult situations. He did that.” That's great, but the takeaway is that Ruggs has a knee issue — it was initially unclear if it was knee or ankle — and that Ruggs received zero touches after returning to play through the ailment in the second half. He figures to be a limited participant in this week's practices, and will be a volatile WR4 for Week 2 against the Saints.  Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:43 am

    Advice: With Courtland Sutton (shoulder) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) out, Jeudy led the Broncos in targets as the de facto No. 1 receiver. He just wasn't very efficient and had a really bad third-down drop over the middle on a would-be first down on a perfect throw from Drew Lock. The targets were a plus, but Sutton shouldn't be out very long and is Denver's unquestioned No. 1 receiver. Noah Fant caught Lock's lone touchdown on a nine-yarder.
