  • Roethlisberger won't need Tommy John surgery
    Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) will not require Tommy John surgery. 16 minutes ago
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Cam (foot) could resume practicing Wednesday
    Cam Newton (foot) could resume practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Newton won't be on the field Sunday at Arizona, though his status is "day to day" rather than "week to week." Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, there is a "real chance" Newton will be back in the fold when the Panthers return to practice on Wednesday. Undrafted sophomore Kyle Allen will be at the controls with Newton sidelined in Week 3. It will be his second career start. Today, 6:31 am

  • Teddy to start with Taysom 'sprinkled in'
    ESPN's Dianna Russini reports Teddy Bridgewater will be the "featured" quarterback in the Saints' Week 3 game against the Seahawks.

    Advice: Coach Sean Payton has been frustrating noncommittal on the Saints' plan at quarterback, though it seems logic has prevailed as the veteran Bridgewater will start and see most of New Orleans' QB reps with gadget player Taysom Hill "sprinkled in." Bridgewater is in a favorable spot against a sluggish Seahawks secondary, though he's mostly been a game manager since arriving on the scene in 2014. Payton's inexplicable infatuation with Hill has frustrated Drew Brees owners for the better part of a year and that's not likely to change with Bridgewater under center. Today, 5:20 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Tom Brady (calf) good to go for Sunday
    Tom Brady (calf) wasn't listed on the Patriots' final injury report.

    Advice: Brady was limited in practice all week, but his status was never in doubt. Fire him up as a high-end QB1 in the Patriots' loaded offense. Friday, 1:10 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Titans won't make a change at QB 'right now'
    Coach Mike Vrabel told reporters Friday that the team is not looking at a QB change "right now."

    Advice: Marcus Mariota may have cleared 300 yards in the Titans' Thursday night loss to the Jaguars, but his performance was brutal for the majority of the contest. He's averaging career-low marks in completion rate (61%) and QBR (38) despite being surrounded with easily the most-talented supporting cast of his career. Ryan Tannehill figures to get a chance under center sooner rather than later if Mariota continues to struggle. Friday, 10:17 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Gardner Minshew has two-score night vs. TEN
    Gardner Minshew completed 20-of-30 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns in the Jaguars' 20-7, Week 3 win over the Titans.

    Advice: Minshew was the best quarterback on the field by a long shot. Despite occasional driving rain, Minshew was giving his receivers the opportunity to make plays down the field, especially sophomore D.J. Chark. Minshew could have had a bigger night, but he received a drop-filled performance from his pass catchers, particularly Dede Westbrook. The slot man muffed at least three catches, including what should have been a 22-yard score on a third quarter third down. Minshew also received no help from his running game. Playing an aggressive style, Minshew will have streaming appeal in the right matchups. @DEN for Week 4 probably isn't one of them. Thursday, 8:43 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Swag Kelly reverting to Colts practice squad
    Free agent QB Chad Kelly is expected to rejoin the Colts as a member of their practice squad.

    Advice: Kelly passed through waivers unclaimed after being let go by Indianapolis earlier this week. The Colts will stash him on the practice squad as insurance for starter Jacoby Brissett and veteran backup Brian Hoyer. Thursday, 1:37 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • When the magic stops: 'Fins bench Fitz
    Ryan Fitzpatrick has been benched as Dolphins quarterback.

    Advice: A pawn in the Dolphins' tanking game, Fitz went all the way off the rails in Weeks 1 and 2, running for his life behind an expansion-level offensive line and tossing picks at will. Not all of them were his fault, as his disastrous "skill corps" made myriad mistakes. Considering the league-wide injury landscape at quarterback, there has never been a better year for the Dolphins to trade or release Fitz, but they understandably might want to keep his veteran presence behind shaky sophomore Josh Rosen. Thursday, 1:25 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Flores names Rosen Dolphins' new starter
    Josh Rosen has been named the Dolphins' starting quarterback for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Coach Brian Flores made the decision Thursday afternoon. Ryan Fitzpatrick fared disastrously during his two-week reign as starter, compiling a miserable 39.9 quarterback rating with four interceptions, two of which were housed for scores. It makes sense for the Dolphins to see what they have in Rosen, though it's hard to imagine him succeeding with so few weapons at his disposal. Fitzpatrick spent most of his first two games running for his life behind the Dolphins' anemic offensive line and Rosen is headed for the same fate. Even in two-quarterback settings, Rosen won't carry much fantasy weight. Thursday, 1:06 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Report: Brees' thumb sugery 'went perfect''s Ian Rapoport reports that Drew Brees' thumb surgery was a success.

    Advice: Brees' original time frame of six weeks reportedly remains within reach. The Saints aren't expected to place their longtime franchise QB on injured reserve. Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill are expected to split snaps to some extent during Brees' absence. Thursday, 6:38 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • 'Full confidence' Darnold returns for Week 5
    Sam Darnold (mono) said he has "full confidence" he'll be ready for New York's Week 5 matchup against the Eagles.

    Advice: "I'm not going to promise anything because I don't know exactly where this mono thing is going, but that's the goal that the doctors and I have set," Darnold said on his Week 5 target date. Early-season bye weeks are typically arbitrary for recovery, but Week 4 can't come soon enough so that the Jets can take a break and allow Darnold to heal without missing anymore regular season action. Unfortunately, it's hard to imagine both Jamison Crowder and Robby Anderson offering much production until New York's hitting on all cylinders against Philadelphia. Wednesday, 1:51 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Winston (foot) on injury report; will start
    Jameis Winston (foot) is practicing in full for Week 3 against the Giants.

    Advice: Winston surprisingly popped up on the team's injury report but will start after practicing in full. It's only concerning since recency bias brings to mind Ben Roethlisberger, who (secretly) dealt with an injury heading into Pittsburgh's Week 2 matchup against the Seahawks, struggled, then was promptly ruled out for the year. If healthy, it's likely a week Winston and the Bucs' offense get back on track against a shoddy Giants defense allowing 10.6 yards per attempt. Wednesday, 12:38 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Jets sign QB David Fales
    Jets signed QB David Fales.

    Advice: Fales knows coach Adam Gase's offense after spending time with him in Miami the previous two seasons. With Sam Darnold (mono) and Trevor Siemian (ankle) out, the Jets now have Luke Falk and Fales as options under center. Always good to have the Dolphins' Nos. 3 and 4 QBs from 2018. Wednesday, 6:02 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Kitchens: Mayfield is taking 'too many hits'
    Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said he needs to get the ball out of Baker Mayfield's hands quicker because Mayfield is taking "too many hits."

    Advice: Kitchens is taking the blame here and sounds like he'll change the offensive gameplan to scheme around his below-average offensive line, but Mayfield also needs to work on feeling and avoiding pressure. The change in gameplan is likely opting for more quick-hitting passes, especially when facing defensive lines that can get after the quarterback. Next week, Mayfield will go up against Aaron Donald and the Rams, so now is the time for a change. Mayfield has the fifth-highest sack percentage through two weeks. Tuesday, 3:09 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Kyle Allen would start over Will Grier
    Second-year UDFA Kyle Allen will start over third-rounder Will Grier if Cam Newton (foot) is sidelined for Week 3 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: "I think Kyle's more than ready," coach Ron Rivera claimed Tuesday. "I think he's got a really good arm, makes good decisions. He just needs to speed himself up a bit." "Just needs to speed himself up a bit" sounds like a quarterback about to get dominated. Allen did start last Week 17 and held his own. He also has a plus matchup in the Cardinals, though plus matchups don't really exist for players in Allen's position. Tuesday, 11:43 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Trevor Siemian (ankle) done for the season
    Jets placed QB Trevor Siemian on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

    Advice: Siemian has torn ligaments and is expected to undergo surgery. Siemian, who had not started a game since 2017 in Denver, made it only 18 snaps on Monday evening before Myles Garrett wrecked his ankle. The Jets will now be forced to start 2018 sixth-rounder Luke Falk until Sam Darnold (mono) is ready to go. Going on 28, Siemian has never had success apart from mentor Gary Kubiak. Coming off major injury, he figures to struggle to find backup work in 2020. Tuesday, 10:17 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Lions sign ex-Bengals QB Jeff Driskel Tuesday
    Lions signed QB Jeff Driskel.

    Advice: Backup QB Josh Johnson was released in a corresponding move. Driskel worked out for the Lions last week and clearly showed something...which is more than he showed during his time with the Bengals. David Blough will remain Matthew Stafford's immediate backup. Tuesday, 7:52 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Lions release QB Josh Johnson on Tuesday
    Lions released QB Josh Johnson.

    Advice: Johnson initially beat out Landry Jones for Detroit's backup gig but wasn't needed for any regular season action through the first two weeks. David Blough will backup Matthew Stafford for the rest of the season. Tuesday, 7:25 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Daniel Jones named Giants starter for Week 3
    Giants announced rookie Daniel Jones as the team's Week 3 starter.

    Advice: And the crowd roars. It was an obvious transition once coach Pat Shurmur left the door open for a potential change on Monday, but the good news is the organization didn't hold back any longer despite being on the books for Eli Manning's $23.5 million in 2019. Danny Dimes most recently went 29-of-34 (85.3%) for 416 yards and two scores on just 60 snaps during the preseason. He'll likely battle uphill in his first start without Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Golden Tate (suspension), but it's the correct call to insert the No. 6 overall pick immediately. It's not farfetched to think Week 2 was the last start of Eli's career, finishing with a 116-116 regular season record over 16 seasons. Tuesday, 7:11 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Luke Falk dinks and dunks it in NFL debut
    Luke Falk completed 20-of-25 passes for 198 scoreless yards in the Jets' 23-3, Week 2 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: Trevor Siemian made the start in place of an ill Sam Darnold, but he lasted just over a quarter before suffering an ankle injury. Falk, just promoted from the practice squad, made his NFL debut after being a seventh-round pick in 2015. He knows coach Adam Gase's offense, but Falk simply dinked and dunked down the field before picking up some chunk gains late when the Browns were playing prevent with a big lead. Falk is expected to start Week 3 against the Patriots in New England as it stands right now. Good luck. Monday, 8:36 pm
