• Terrance Williams gets questionable tag
    Terrance Williams (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Williams opened the week with two missed practices, but is trending up after getting in a limited session Saturday. He's clearly less than 100 perecnt and looks like a game-time decision. The Cowboys also listed Brice Butler (ankle) as questionable. Rotoworld.com 11 minutes ago

    Advice: Gresham was held out last week, but the Cardinals expect him to return after practicing on a limited basis. With John Brown sidelined and J.J.

He has a double-plus matchup against a secondary that's without Ronald Darby, Jaylen Watkins, Corey Graham and potentially starting FS Rodney McLeod.

With Allen Robinson out for the year, there’s a clear path to targets when Westbrook gets healthy. Westbrook had a blowup preseason, going over 100 yards or a touchdown in all three games.

    Todd Gurley rushed 28 times for 113 yards and two rushing touchdowns and caught 5-of-7 targets for 36 yards and one receiving touchdown against the 49ers in Week 3.

    Advice: This isn't that same old seven and nine stuff. Gurley's three TDs in the first half got him to six in the first 10 quarters of this season, which matched his entire total in 2016. His usage is headed to be among the league leaders and the Rams' sudden improvement on offense should lead to more scores. Coach Sean McVay blamed himself for Gurley's fumbling issues in Week 2 and talked about his own "uncharacteristic decisions" and "indecisiveness," so clearly he trusts his bell-cow back.

    Advice: He led the Rams receivers in snaps for the first two games and he was even out there in one-wide sets near the goal line tonight. As impressive as this line is after a one-catch Week 2, the Rams do look to be involving Sammy Watkins more and running the rock will be essential to their success, so Woods will have tough time matching this output most weeks. Unless Watkins does have a concussion and needs to miss time, Woods isn't really a great fantasy pickup after this one. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:24 pm

    Advice: He played 37 of the 65 snaps in this game, but this win was all about Todd Gurley and Sammy Watkins. Jared Goff going down the field more than anticipated has cooled the hype on the slot man, but NFL defenses could make an adjustment to help make the rookie as more of a security blanket.

    Advice: Late in the fourth quarter, he needed to be evaluated for a concussion. The Rams have been lining him up out wide and they had him in the backfield because they only had two active backs. He almost scored on a jet sweep from 11 yards out, but he was tackled just shy of the goal line. This week, coach Sean McVay said Austin "has a lot more in him, just as a complete receiver," but he's still getting most of his looks as a gadget guy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:11 pm

    Matt Breida rushed three times for nine yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for 20 yards against the Rams in Week 3.

    Advice: Carlos Hyde suffered an injury in the first quarter and he was able to return, so Breida was the lead back for a couple possessions. Preseason stud Raheem Mostert did fumble, so Breida has likely locked up his status as a strong handcuff to the oft-injured Hyde.

    Jordy Nelson (quad) expects to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals.

    Advice: Nelson's status was looking questionable after sitting out the entire second half last week, but he's on track to play after practicing in full. He should be active barring a setback, though expectations should be downgraded at less than 100 percent. The Packers are trending up with Nelson and RT Bryan Bulaga looking likely to return.

    Odell Beckham caught 4-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions on Monday night.

    Advice: Making his season debut after four weeks of rest following a preseason ankle injury, Beckham played just over 61% of the snaps, according to PFF's Nate Jahnke. He didn't start, and Beckham appeared to only be getting reps in meaningful situations like third downs and in the red zone. The one pass OBJ didn't reel in was a bad drop on a fourth down in the fourth quarter with the Giants down by two touchdowns.

  • John Brown (quad) expected to miss Week 3
    John Brown (quad) is expected to miss Week 3.

    Advice: Coach Bruce Arians said it "doesn't look hopeful" on Monday. J.J. Nelson will continue to feature opposite Larry Fitzgerald in Brown's absence.Daily Slant: While Nelson was the breakout player with 120 yards and a score, Jaron Brown led the team with 11 targets. Although he only caught four, his inefficiency has more to do with Carson Palmer, who tossed Brown just 4 catchable balls. Palmer’s declining play adds risk, but the WR offers plenty of upside in return. His aDOT is 16.6 - 12th this season - and he accounted for 40.2% of Arizona’s air yards this week (8th), per Next Gen Stats. If Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick remains sidelined, Jaron will match up with rookie Chidobe Awuzie the most. It looks like a good spot as receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders combined for a 12/133/2 line against Dallas in Week 2. Jaron is a sneaky GPP option as all of the attention goes to Nelson. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:32 pm

  • Eifert questionable with back, knee injuries
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tyler Eifert is dealing with back and knee injuries which have put his Week 3 status in doubt.

    Advice: Even through his dreadful start, Eifert owners could at least take solace in the oft-injured tight end's health, but that is no longer the case. Going up against a Packers defense which has shut down Jimmy Graham and Austin Hooper to open the season, Eifert will just be a touchdown dart throw even if he is active this week.Daily Slant: Across his career, Andy Dalton has averaged 21.85 fantasy points (255.89 yards, 1.76 touchdowns) with Eifert and 18.49 (226.6 yards, 1.35 touchdowns) without him, per RotoViz. In turn, A.J. Green has seen a dip too; he's averaged 18.55 PPR points with Eifert (6/9.97/88.32/0.62) and 16.91 without him (5.42/9.15/80.88/0.54). Eifert’s absence would allow the Packers to hone in on Green, potentially hurting his efficiency and taking away end zone targets. Green may be riskier than it appears if Eifert is sidelined.

A few minutes after the injury, he was on the exercise bike. If Nelson needs to miss time, that would mean more targets for Davante Adams, Ty Montgomery and Randall Cobb.

    Todd Gurley collected 88 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries while reeling in three-of-four targets for 48 yards and another touchdown Sunday in the Rams’ Week 2 loss to the Redskins.

    Advice: He fumbled twice, but only lost one of them. Sunday represented Gurley’s highest rushing total since Week 14 of his rookie season in 2015. He bulldozed his way to a one-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter and scored again in the third on an 18-yard pass from Jared Goff. Gurley’s second touchdown was one for the ages as Gurley leaped over Bashaud Breeland before diving for the pylon. It probably won’t last, but Gurley is on pace for 832 receiving yards this year, which would be more than he posted in his previous two seasons combined.

    Advice: Gordon couldn't get anything going on the ground against Ndamukong Suh, who was blowing up the run game. Gordon was lucky to get his touchdown on a one-yard plunge; the Chargers gave it to the fullback from the one-yard line on the previous two plays only to see him fail both times. Even when Gordon struggles on the ground, his heavy usage in the pass game makes his floor extremely safe. Keep firing Gordon out there as an RB1 next week against the Chiefs.

Cooper is still among the most talented receivers in the league and the Raiders offense looks like a juggernaut, so there's no need to worry here.

    Advice: Howard declined to talk to the media. Things basically couldn't have gone worse for Howard in Tampa, as he was held without a catch on one target in the passing game while rookie Tarik Cohen out-touched him 15-9. The sling is ominous because Howard was already dealing with a shoulder issue. Coach John Fox is a Venus flytrap of injury information, so we might not really get an update on Howard's status until Wednesday's injury report.

    Advice: Keenum didn't turn the ball over, but that's a pitiful 4.5 YPA in his spot start in place of an injured Sam Bradford. Keenum couldn't move the offense, and in one red-zone possession he was under intense pressure on all three downs before settling for a field goal. Keenum's insertion really bogged down the other Minnesota skill players, while the Pittsburgh defense is much better than the Swiss-cheese one the Saints trotted out against the Vikings in Week 1.

Nelson nearly had two TDs, but he couldn't get both feet in on a first-half end-zone catch. Nelson atoned with a 45-yard scoring rope from Carson Palmer later in the game.

    Advice: Beckham was limited all week, but the expectation is he will be able to play on Monday night. Fantasy owners still should have an emergency plan in place, but Beckham's upside means he has to be in lineups if active. Even with the injury concerns, Beckham is RotoPat's No. 8 receiver this week. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:46 am

  • John Brown (quad) may miss multiple games
    Cardinals coach Bruce Arians "doesn't know" when John Brown (quad) will be healthy.

    Advice: Brown played in the season opener at less than 100 percent. He's already ruled out for Sunday's game and could miss multiple weeks. The Cardinals are trending down with injuries to Brown and David Johnson. Chad Williams will replace Brown in four-wide sets. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:21 pm

  • Mike Williams (back) cleared to practice
    Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) returned to practice Friday.

    Advice: Williams is out for Week 2, but it's his first practice since going down at OTAs. This puts him on track to beat his October timetable. Williams figures to have a limited role when healthy. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:45 pm

  • Jay Ajayi taken off injury report
    Jay Ajayi (knee) has been removed from the Week 2 injury report.

    Advice: Ajayi has been dealing with knee soreness, but it was never expected to keep him out. He's locked into heavy touches as the centerpiece of Miami's offense. Ajayi is Rotoworld's No. 7-ranked running back this week. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:40 pm

  • J. Howard expected to play; could be limited?
    The Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell expects Jordan Howard (questionable, shoulder) to play in Week 2 at Tampa Bay.

    Advice: However, Campbell left open the possibility Howard could see limited snaps by saying it was "fair" to expect a downtick in playing time after Howard did very little in practice all week. It's not inconceivable rookie Tarik Cohen winds up leading the Bears' backfield in snaps after leading them in Week 1 targets. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:37 pm

  • Amari Cooper (knee) taken off injury report
    Amari Cooper (knee) was taken off the Raiders' final injury report for Week 2 against the Jets.

    Advice: Cooper was limited Wednesday but returned to full practice on Thursday and Friday. He's in a great spot against the Jets and should be a DFS staple in Week 2. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:11 pm

  • Jermaine Gresham out of practice all week
    Jermaine Gresham (questionable, ribs) missed practice all week.

    Advice: The Cardinals' website is calling him a game-time decision. Gresham had some dart-throw sleeper appeal in the absence of John Brown and David Johnson, but that should be shelved. Troy Niklas would be next up at tight end. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:57 pm

  • John Brown (quad) ruled out for Week 2
    John Brown (quad) is out for Week 2 against the Colts.

    Advice: Brown wasn't able to practice this week due to a quad injury and won't be traveling with the team to Indianapolis this weekend. It's a big blow to a Cardinals offense that already lost David Johnson (wrist surgery) earlier this week. Larry Fitzgerald should see as many targets as he can handle on Sunday.

  • Terrance Williams returns to practice
    Terrance Williams (ankle) returned to Cowboys practice on a limited basis Friday and is questionable for Week 2 against the Broncos.

    Advice: He sat out Wednesday and Thursday's sessions. Williams sprained his ankle early in Dallas' Week 1 win over the Giants. He'll be out there in Denver. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:10 pm

  • Bears list Jordan Howard as questionable
    Jordan Howard (shoulder) is questionable for Week 2 against the Buccaneers.

    Advice: A shoulder injury has limited Howard at practice this week but there's never been much concern about his status for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay. Fantasy owners who scooped Tarik Cohen off the waiver wire should be feeling even more confident this week with Howard nicked up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:30 am

  • Tyler Eifert held to 3/42 versus Texans
    Tyler Eifert caught 3-of-4 targets for 42 yards in the Bengals' Week 2 loss to the Texans.

    Advice: Eifert appeared to have himself a 12-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but was instead called for illegal touching after going out of bounds and failing to re-establish himself before catching Andy Dalton's end zone pass. He was also shaken up on multiple occasions, but never announced with an injury. Eifert now has just four catches for 46 yards through the Bengals' first two games. With the Bengals' offense in disarray, Eifert will be a low-end TE1 for next week's trip to Green Bay. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:59 pm

    Amari Cooper (knee) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: It's the same routine the Raiders followed last week before removing Cooper from the injury report on Friday. He'll be an elite WR1 against the Jets. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:56 pm

  • Jermaine Gresham (ribs) out again Thursday
    Jermaine Gresham (ribs) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

    Advice: It's not a great sign for his Week 2 availability. The Cardinals are in desperate need of healthy bodies with David Johnson (wrist), John Brown (quad) and Gresham all hurt. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:58 pm

  • John Brown (quad) officially 'DNP' Thursday
    John Brown (quad) was officially "DNP" in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: It remains unclear if the Cardinals are just limiting Brown's reps or if he's had a recurrence of his quad issues. Typically, if a player is being managed, they will get in at least one "limited" session across the first two practices of the week. Brown should be considered legitimately questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:55 pm

  • Jay Ajayi has had knee soreness 'for a while'
    Speaking Thursday, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Jay Ajayi has been dealing with knee soreness "for a while," but that it's "not a big issue."

    Advice: Ajayi's knee is listed on the Week 2 injury report, but he's practicing in full. Ajayi, of course, fell to the fifth round of the 2015 draft over concerns about a right knee that was reportedly "bone on bone." Ajayi's knee was not an issue in 2016 or this summer. As long as his health cooperates, he will be an RB1. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:41 pm

  • Jordan Howard remains 'limited' on Thursday
    Jordan Howard (shoulder) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: There's been no indication it's a serious issue. Bears coach John Fox routinely makes a mockery of the injury report, and won't say anything of value when he meets with the press. For now, fantasy owners should proceed as if Howard will be ready for his normal role on Sunday, which right now appears to be two-down hammer. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:37 am

  • John Brown not spotted at open practice
    John Brown (quad) wasn't seen at the open portion of Thursday's practice.

    Advice: That's two DNPs to start the week for Brown, who battled quad issues throughout training camp. He'll probably have to put in at least a limited session on Friday to get cleared for Sunday's game in Indy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:15 am

    Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

    Advice: It is his second missed session in a row, suggesting he is a long shot to play this week. Brice Butler will pick up the slack if Williams is forced to sit. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:53 am

  • Jordan Howard pops up on injury report
    Jordan Howard (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: He was a late addition to the injury report. Howard looked healthy in Week 1, though fourth-round rookie Tarik Cohen out-gained him by 47 yards. Drafted as a consensus second-round pick in fantasy leagues this summer, Cohen's involvement could downgrade Howard to an RB2 going forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:08 pm

  • Dede Westbrook has core muscle surgery
    Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook underwent core muscle surgery this week.

    Advice: Westbrook was placed on IR ahead of Jacksonville's season opener. The surgery has a six-week timetable, giving Westbrook a chance to return when first eligible in Week 9. With Allen Robinson out for the year, Westbrook has a clear path to targets when healthy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:30 pm
