Player Notes

  • Garoppolo (ankle) officially absent on Wednesday
    Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: As expected. Nick Mullens is the favorite to start this week against the Giants. Garoppolo is considered week to week with a high-ankle sprain. He'll have a better shot of suiting up for Week 4. Yesterday, 12:57 pm

  • Lynn says Justin Herbert will start vs. Panthers
    Coach Anthony Lynn announced Justin Herbert will start Week 3 against the Panthers.

    Advice: Tyrod Taylor accidentally had his lung punctured by the Chargers' team doctor during an injection for his ribs injury ahead of Week 2. Taylor remains week to week and will not be placed on injured reserve. Herbert was awfully impressive in his NFL debut against the Chiefs last week and gets a much easier draw against the Panthers' young defense in this one. He's a strong streaming option for fantasy. Yesterday, 12:41 pm

  • Nick Mullens expected to start vs Giants
    49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Nick Mullens will "most likely" start Week 3 against the Giants.

    Advice: The 49ers haven't ruled out Jimmy Garoppolo, but he's not expected to play through a high-ankle sprain. Mullens completed 8-of-11 passes for 71 yards with an interception coming off the bench for Garoppolo last week. Even in another good matchup with the Giants secondary, Mullens has a low floor with a downgraded supporting cast for his Week 3 spot start. Yesterday, 9:54 am

  • Report: Team doctor punctured Tyrod Taylor's lung
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Chargers' team doctor accidentally punctured Tyrod Taylor’s lung while trying to administer a pain-killing injection during pregame warmups in Week 2.

    Advice: It means Taylor is dealing with a collapsed lung. That's a serious injury, and Taylor has been advised not to play "indefinitely." Taylor is expected to fully recover, but that's unlikely to happen this week. Justin Herbert is in line to make another start against the Panthers. Yesterday, 8:45 am

  • Tagovailoa 'hasn't been tackled' since hip surgery
    The Palm Beach Post reports “it’s unlikely” Tua Tagovailoa has been tackled since hip surgery.

    Advice: Tagovailoa said at the end of training camp he hadn’t been hit since college. The Dolphins removed him from the Week 2 injury report, but it’s fair to wonder how confident they are in his ability to stay healthy. Tua’s non-contact status suggests he’s not close to taking the starting role from Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick threw for 328 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a loss to Buffalo last week. Yesterday, 8:32 am

  • Denver signs Blake Bortles to one-year contract
    Broncos signed QB Blake Bortles to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Broncos brought Bortles in for a visit last year but will make his signing official this time given the extended absence of Drew Lock (shoulder). Jeff Driskel is expected to start Week 3 against the Bucs, but Bortles provides a backup option since the team only kept two quarterbacks coming into the year. Bortles also offers veteran experience with 76 career starts compared to Driskel's 13. Tuesday, 6:09 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Brees has 312 yards, TD in MNF loss to Raiders
    Drew Brees completed 26-of-38 passes for 312 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Saints' 34-24, Week 2 loss to the Raiders Monday night.

    Advice: Despite missing Michael Thomas (ankle), Brees was still able to eclipse 300 yards. The Saints jumped out to a quick 10-0 lead in the first quarter, but the Raiders controlled the game over the final 45 minutes-plus. Brees' interception was a poor throw over the middle picked off by LB Nicholas Morrow. His touchdown was a short toss to Jared Cook. Most of Brees' passing yards were piled up after the catch by Alvin Kamara, who led the team with 95 yards through the air. Brees is no longer a top-12 fantasy play at the position and won't be a recommended option next week at Green Bay. Monday, 8:54 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Carr tosses 3 TDs in Vegas' MNF win over Saints
    Derek Carr completed 28-of-38 passes for 282 yards and three touchdowns in the Raiders' 34-23, Week 2 win over the Saints Monday night.

    Advice: Carr had just one three-touchdown game all of last season. He had all night to throw with the Saints missing DE Marcus Davenport (elbow), and Carr's three scores went to Alec Ingold (three yards), Zay Jones (15), and Darren Waller (one). It wasn't a very fantasy-friendly output from Carr in terms of his pass catchers outside of Waller, who commanded a whopping 16 targets and posted 12-103-1 on the Saints. Like normal, Carr didn't challenge downfield whatsoever, but he dinked and dunked his way to a strong night. Carr will not be a recommended fantasy play next week on the road at New England. Monday, 8:33 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Lock (shoulder) sidelined 'at least' two weeks
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Broncos QB Drew Lock (shoulder) will be sidelined "at least" two weeks before his injury is re-evaluated again.

    Advice: Lock suffered a severe rotator cuff strain in Week 2 and is expected to miss the next month of the season. Denver's bye is scheduled for Week 8 but the team is reportedly trying to have Lock back under center before then. Jeff Driskel, who averaged 7.3 carries per game in his three spot-starts for the Lions last year, will remain at quarterback until Lock is healed. Driskel isn't the worst option for 2-QB leagues given his rushing floor and the fact the Broncos face the Buccaneers, Jets, Patriots, Dolphins, and Chiefs over the next five games. Monday, 10:21 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Pederson 'not concerned' about Carson Wentz
    Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said he's "not concerned" about Carson Wentz's play this season. 

    Advice: Pederson did call his quarterback's first interception against the Rams "unacceptable." Wentz has completed a paltry 58.8 percent of his passes through two games. He's thrown two touchdowns and four picks. Not great. Unlike in Week 1, when Wentz was under constant duress, the Eagles' offensive line protected him well in Week 2 against the Rams. Wentz was pressured on just 20.5 percent of his drop backs against LA. He saved his fantasy day with a rushing touchdown in Week 2, and goes into Week 3 with a mouth-watering matchup against the Bengals' terrible secondary. Monday, 9:18 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Packers keeping Aaron Rodgers clean through Week 2
    Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been kept clean on a league-high 83.1 percent of his drop backs through two weeks. 

    Advice: Rodgers has been under pressure on an incredibly low 16.9 percent of his drop backs this season. Keeping Rodgers upright has led to 604 passing yards and six touchdowns through two weeks. It's a considerable change from 2019, when Rodgers was under pressure on 34.5 percent of his drop backs. He should remain in lineups this week against the Saints, though Davante Adams' hamstring woes could prove problematic for Rodgers. Monday, 8:05 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Patriots, Newton come up short on final play
    Cam Newton completed 30-of-44 passes for 397 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the Patriots' Week 2 loss to Seattle.

    Advice: Newton led the team in rushing with 47 yards and a pair of scores. The Patriots abandoned the run early and were playing from behind in the second half. That allowed Newton to rack up 44 attempts and run it 11 times. Newton looked as good as he has in years, making decisive throws while completing 68 percent of his passes.  He led the Patriots to a comeback in the final minutes but was stopped on a designed run at the goal-line on the last play of the game. Newton has thrown for 472 yards with four rushing touchdowns (five total) through two games. He gets a matchup with Raiders in Week 3. Sunday, 8:39 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Seahawks stay pass heavy, Wilson throws 5 TDs
    Russell Wilson completed 21-of-28 passes for 288 yards with five touchdowns and an interception in Seattle's Week 2 win over the Patriots.

    Advice: Wilson rebounded from a pick-six on a deflected pass on the opening drive. All five of his touchdowns went to different receivers, with a pair of them coming from 30-plus yards out. Wilson also added 39 yards on five carries after leading Seattle in rushing last week. The Seahawks were able to outlast the Patriots, who were stuffed on the goal-line to end the game. Averaging 305 passing yards with a 9:1 TD/INT ratio through two weeks, Wilson is looking like the early favorite for MVP. Sunday, 8:31 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Dwayne Haskins throws for 223 and a TD in Week 2
    Dwayne Haskins completed 19-of-33 passes for 223 yards and a touchdown in Washington's 30-15 Week 1 loss to the Cardinals. 

    Advice: Haskins missed a few critical throws late in the second half and early in the third quarter. His target distribution was fairly narrow, with 24 of his 33 passes going to Terry McLaurin, Logan Thomas, and Steve Sims. It's clear Washington wants to hide their quarterback's deficiencies with a conservative game plan. Haskins will be a borderline superflex start next week against the Browns. Sunday, 6:11 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Deshaun Watson rolled over by Baltimore's defense
    Deshaun Watson completed 25-of-36 passes for 275 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Houston's 33-16 Week 3 battering from the Ravens.

    Advice: Watson was afforded little time to make plays under center, ultimately taking four sacks, and didn't have Will Fuller (undisclosed) for a majority of play even when he did find time to breathe. The only two threatening possessions for the Texans ended with a fumble from Keke Coutee and a diving interception from Ravens stud CB Marcus Peters. There were already few playmakers on the team, but an extended absence for Fuller would be catastrophic for Houston's anemic offense and, in particular, Watson in the interim. He'll be ranked as a low-end QB1 against Pittsburgh's nightmarish secondary in Week 3. Sunday, 4:50 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Kyler totals three TDs in dominant Week 2
    Kyler Murray completed 26-of-38 passes for 286 yards, one touchdown, and an interception, rushing eight times for 67 yards and two touchdowns in the Cardinals' 30-15 Week 1 win over Washington. 

    Advice: The speedy, elusive Murray again made defenders look silly on his way to the end zone. He has 19 rushing attempts through two games, a marked increase over his rookie year rushing pace. It makes Murray a potential top-3 fantasy quarterback with a massive weekly floor. He's a high-end QB1 next week against Detroit. Sunday, 4:41 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Chargers opt to punt, Mahomes leads KC to OT win
    Patrick Mahomes completed 27-of-47 passes for 302 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 2 overtime win over the Chargers.

    Advice: It was a struggle all game long, but MVPs find ways to win ugly. The Chargers zone defense and defensive end pressure limited Mahomes' big plays. He had to grind things out underneath in the second half and in overtime, only adding one deep TD conversion to Tyreek Hill. Mahomes will have bigger games ahead against far easier defenses, but even today, the Super Bowl MVP threw for 300 yards. The game of the year awaits Mahomes. Next Monday night, the Chiefs will play Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. He'll be a top-two fantasy quarterback once again. Sunday, 4:41 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Lamar runs 16 times in win over lifeless Texans
    Lamar Jackson completed 18-of-24 passes for 201 yards and one score, rushing 16 times for 54 yards in Baltimore's 33-16 Week 3 cakewalk over the Texans.

    Advice: It was smooth sailing for the Ravens, whose front-seven reached Deshaun Watson four times in the backfield as the team's offense cruised to an easy win behind 37 carries for 230 rushing yards (6.2 YPA). Houston's secondary limited Mark Andrews to a single catch but it was Marquise Brown (5/42) who consistently settled in holes throughout the defense to keep moving the chains. Jackson has been terrific when asked to dropback, completing 38-of-49 passes (77.5%) for 476 yards and four touchdowns through two games, but the Ravens' weekly seige on opponents has capped his upside (so far). Expect that to change in next week's primetime showdown against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. Sunday, 4:19 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Fitzpatrick bounces back with 328 yards, 2 scores
    Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 31-of-47 passes for 328 yards and two touchdowns in Miami's 31-28 Week 2 loss to the Bills. 

    Advice: The Dolphins may have lost, but it certainly wasn't for Fitzpatrick's play against Buffalo's stifling secondary. The 37-year-old veteran delivered several pinpoint throws to his receivers on the afternoon, most notably finding Mike Gesicki (8/130/1) for a back-shoulder touchdown to bring Miami within one score with only 2:09 remaining in the final quarter. He also delivered quality throws to DeVante Parker (5/53/1) and Preston Williams (1/26) against All-Pro corner Tre'Davious White. It was likely just enough to hold off Tua Tagovailo from being forced under center in Week 3, setting up Fitzpatrick for a stream-worthy matchup against the Jaguars. Sunday, 3:23 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Rivers attempts 25 passes as IND runs over MIN
    Philip Rivers completed 19-of-25 passes for 214 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Chargers' 28-11, Week 2 win over the Vikings. 

    Advice: Rivers' interception came in the red zone after he targeted Mo Alie-Cox against too tight of coverage. It wasn't an egregious throw, but the defender was able to arrive quickly and bat the ball up into the air for the pick. Other than that, it was a quiet day for Rivers as the Colts dialed up 40 rushing attempts. Rivers should have had a 44-yard touchdown strike to T.Y. Hilton, but his No. 1 wideout committed another inexplicable drop. The picks have been bad, as usual, but Rivers has looked good enough for the Colts to win with. The laughingstock Jets are a plus Week 3 matchup, but the running game will again be the play. Sunday, 2:50 pm
