Player Notes

  • David Montgomery (neck) questionable to return
    David Montgomery exited Week 2 against the Giants with a neck injury and is questionable to return.

    Advice: Montgomery went down in the second quarter, came off the field on his own, but had to go to the locker room. Prior to leaving, Montgomery caught a 28-yard touchdown from Mitchell Trubisky and had five carries for 23 yards on the ground. Tarik Cohen and Cordarrelle Patterson should handle most of the backfield work for however long Montgomery is out in this one. 42 minutes ago

  • Saquon Barkley carted off with right knee injury
    Saquon Barkley exited Week 2 against the Bears with an apparent right knee injury.

    Advice: Barkley appeared to injure his hand or wrist on the previous play but stayed in the game and then went down in a heap on the sideline, grabbing at his right knee as soon as he went down. He was writhing in pain before needing to be lifted off the field. Barkley couldn't put any weight on his leg and had to eventually be carted to the locker room. Dion Lewis is the only other Giants running back active this week. 50 minutes ago

  • Cam Akers departs, questionable with rib injury
    Cam Akers was forced from Los Angeles' Week 2 game against the Eagles and is questionable to return. 

    Advice: Akers started and immediately handled three carries for 13 yards, but he then went down awkwardly and was immediately spirited to the locker room. Akers' arm appeared to be dangling a bit. Despite the "questionable" tag, he is likely done for the day. That would leave Darrell Henderson to change Malcolm Brown's pace. Today, 10:28 am

  • Darrell Henderson to have bigger Week 2 role
    NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Rams are expected to give Darrell Henderson more snaps in Week 2.

    Advice: The Rams plan to use Cam Akers, Malcolm Brown, and Henderson "roughly equally." Henderson played just five snaps in the season opener. His role should increase now that he's another week removed from his hamstring injury. We like Akers as the touch favorite but this is a backfield to avoid. Today, 9:33 am

  • T.J. Yeldon inactive for Bills' Week 2 matchup
    Bills declared RB T.J. Yeldon, QB Jake Fromm, LB Del’Shawn Phillips, LB Tremaine Edmunds, LB Matt Milano, G Ike Boettger, and TE Lee Smith inactive for Week 2 against the Dolphins.

    Advice: Edmunds' and Milano's injuries remain the most impactful for Buffalo, though it may not matter in this particular matchup against the Dolphins' under-siege trenches. Sunday also makes for Yeldon's second consecutive healthy-scratched contest. Today, 8:57 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Slot WR Malcolm Perry heads Dolphins inactives
    Dolphins declare RB Malcolm Perry, S Clayton Fejedelem, OT Adam Pankey, LB Elandon Roberts, and DE Jason Strowbridge inactive for Week 2 against the Bills.

    Advice: Lynn Bowden, recently acquired from the Raiders, will take Perry's spot as the team's gadget slot wideout in Week 2. DeVante Parker (hamstring, active) and Preston Williams are both available for Miami on the boundary. Today, 8:56 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Jets RB Lamical Perine (ankle) active for Week 2
    Jets RB Lamical Perine (ankle) is active for Week 2 against the 49ers.

    Advice: Perine logged two limited practices this week before being officially declared active. He could step into an immediate role as a pass-catcher out of the backfield with Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) on IR. Perine caught 40 passes and recorded just one drop on 55 targets in his final season of college football at Florida. Today, 8:46 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Darrynton Evans misses second game
    Titans RB Darrynton Evans (hamstring) is inactive for Week 2 against Jacksonville.

    Advice: Evans opened the week practicing fully before he was downgraded to limited and then didn't practice Friday. It looks like he's dealing with a setback. Jeremy McNichols will back up Derrick Henry. The rest of the Titans inactives are OLB Vic Beasley, OLB Derick Roberson, TE Geoff Swaim, OL Jamil Douglas, and DL Isaiah Mack. Today, 8:34 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Phillip Lindsay among Broncos Week 2 inactives
    Broncos declared RB Phillip Lindsay (toe), ILB Mark Barron (hamstring), DL McTelvin Agim, G Netane Muti, WR Tyrie Cleveland, OLB Anthony Chickillo, and TE Albert Kkwuegbunam inactive for Week 2 against the Steelers. 

    Advice: Courtland Sutton (shoulder) notably was not on the team's Week 2 inactive list, as previously reported. Lindsay's absence should offer a boost for Melvin Gordon. Royce Freeman becomes a desperation flex option in PPR leagues with Lindsay out. Today, 8:32 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Miles Sanders officially active versus Rams
    Miles Sanders (hamstring) is active for Week 2 against the Rams. 

    Advice: Sanders got in a full week of practice and is ready to go as a high-end RB2. Jalen Hurts, meanwhile, will serve as the Eagles' No. 2 quarterback. Inactive for the Eagles are QB Nate Sudfeld, WR Alshon Jeffery, RB Alshon Huntley, DE Genard Avery, OG Jamon Brown and OG Sua Opeta. Today, 8:32 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Bears give RB Tarik Cohen a three-year extension
    Bears signed RB Tarik Cohen to a three-year, $17.25 million extension.

    Advice: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the deal gives Cohen $9.5 million in fully guaranteed money and has the potential to be worth an extra million. Cohen rushed for 444 yards and caught another 725 in 2018 but struggled with efficiency in 2019. He averaged a dismal 4.4 yards per target and bottomed out to 3.3 yards per carry. If Cohen can regain his 2018 form, locking him up for a few years isn't a bad idea. David Montgomery doesn't offer much as a pass-catcher and the Bears have given Cohen a consistent role in the receiving game. He carried the ball seven times for 41 yards in Week 1 while adding two catches for six yards through the air. Today, 4:56 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Jaguars expected to 'lean on' James Robinson
    The Jaguars are expected to “continue to lean” on James Robinson.

    Advice: Jags OC Jay Gruden said Robinson will be a “big part” of Sunday’s gameplan. Robinson was a workhorse in his debut, totaling 95 yards while handling all the carries. The Jaguars trust Robinson in pass protection and he had the longest play of the game on a 28-yard catch. Playing in what projects as a run-heavy gamescript against the Titans, Robinson could see a higher snap rate than last week’s 68 percent. Yesterday, 8:30 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Rashaad Penny 'ahead of schedule' in recovery
    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Rashaad Penny (knee, reserve/PUP)  is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery.

    Advice: Penny is nine months removed from a torn ACL and miss at least the first six games on the PUP list. Carroll’s comments suggest Penny has a chance to be activated in late-October when first eligible. Penny will be returning to a crowded backfield behind Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde. He may not be higher than the No. 3 back. Yesterday, 8:05 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Justice Hill (thigh) questionable vs Texans
    Justice Hill (thigh) is questionable for Week 2 against the Texans.

    Advice: Hill looks on track to play after a full practice Friday. He’ll join a backfield of J.K. Dobbins, Mark Ingram, and Gus Edwards. Hill is unlikely to see touches but should serve as the Ravens’ kick returner. Yesterday, 6:39 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Devonta Freeman visiting with Eagles on Friday
    Free agent Devonta Freeman is visiting with the Eagles on Friday.

    Advice: It's the first time we've heard from Freeman since he left the Jaguars' facilities without a contract prior to Week 1. Miles Sanders was a full participant in practice throughout the week, so this is likely nothing more than the team doing its due diligence for potential depth. Freeman's visits have increased since shedding his former representation for Drew Rosenhaus. Friday, 1:41 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Duke Johnson (ankle) questionable for Week 2
    Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) is questionable for Week 2. 

    Advice: Houston head coach Bill O'Brien said Friday that Johnson is "trending in the right direction" after practicing on a limited basis this week. He's a fantasy non-factor for all but the most desperate fantasy players this week against the Ravens. Friday, 1:07 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Justin Jackson (quad) 'doubtful' for Week 2
    Chargers RB Justin Jackson (quad) is doubtful for Week 2 against the Chiefs. 

    Advice: Jackson played 11 percent of the Chargers' offensive snaps last week against the Bengals and saw two carries. 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. He seems to be the team's preferred goal line back. Friday, 12:16 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • James Conner (ankle) avoids final injury report
    Steelers RB James Conner will play in Week 2 against the Broncos.

    Advice: He participated in full for the second straight practice and was promptly removed from the team's injury report. He'll play against the Broncos, though it remains unclear if he'll enter the starting lineup as Pittburgh's bell-cow one last time. Benny Snell provided a spark off the bench in Week 1 but can't be considered anything more than a thin FLEX with handcuff upside until Conner's role (or another injury) is unveiled. Both are questionable plays for fantasy until we know more. Friday, 11:35 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Washington OC: Gibson's role 'will grow'
    Washington offensive coordinator Scott Turner said RB Antonio Gibson's role would "continue to grow." 

    Advice: Turner indicated RB Peyton Barber got the majority of the team's carries last week because Washington was trying to bleed the clock against an Eagles team that appeared incapable of moving the ball in the second half. "That's why his snap count was so high," Turner said of Barber, who played 41 percent of Washington's offensive snaps while Gibson played 26 percent. "Based on how the games play themselves out, that'll dictate a lot of snaps." Perhaps with neutral or negative game script this week against Arizona, Gibson will be utilized more than the grinder Barber. Still, it would be a stretch to project Gibson for more than a dozen touches against the Cardinals. Friday, 10:40 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Giovani Bernard notches six touches vs. Browns
    Giovani Bernard caught 5-of-7 targets for 22 yards in the Bengals' Week 2 loss to the Browns, adding a three-yard carry. 

    Advice: His passing-game advantage wasn't quite as pronounced as Week 1, but Bernard still out-targeted Joe Mixon 7-4, out-catching him 5-4. Mixon did out-gain him 40-22. Bernard's lone carry appeared to be a four-yard touchdown out of shotgun late in the third quarter, but upon review he was ruled down at the one-yard line. The Bengals are holding back their offense by refusing to commit to Mixon as a three-down back, but there is no reason to expect Bernard's usage to change for the time being. It is not enough to carve out PPR value. Thursday, 9:33 pm
