  • McCoy's MRI showed 'no significant damage'
    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports LeSean McCoy's (ankle) MRI showed no significant damage.

    Advice: He has a "shot" to play in Sunday's Week 3 showdown against the Ravens. With Damien Williams (groin) also on the mend, rookie Darwin Thompson could be handed a few more touches than usual. McCoy will garner RB3/FLEX status if he's active. Rotoworld.com 42 minutes ago

  • Ty Montgomery gets six touches in MNF loss
    Ty Montgomery rushed three times for 25 yards and caught all three of his targets for 15 yards in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: Montgomery's six touches were a distant second to Le'Veon Bell's 31 as the workhorse. Montgomery picked up most of his on the meaningless final drive down by 20 points. He remains nothing more than a pure handcuff with no standalone value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:47 pm

  • D'Ernest Johnson has 50 yards in MNF win
    D'Ernest Johnson rushed three times for eight yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for 42 yards in the Browns' Week 2 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Johnson took over the No. 2 job this week with Dontrell Hillard (concussion) sidelined. He played a considerable amount as Nick Chubb's change of pace and the preferred third-down back. Johnson doesn't have much, if any, value outside of extremely deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:45 pm

  • Chubb has 98 yards, TD in easy MNF victory
    Nick Chubb rushed 18 times for 62 yards and one touchdown and caught all four of his targets for 36 yards in the Browns' 23-3, Week 2 win over the Jets Monday night.

    Advice: After getting vultured at the goal line Week 1 against the Titans, Chubb didn't let that happen in this one, scoring the Browns' first touchdown on a 19-yard scamper. It hasn't been flashy for Chubb through two weeks, but he's racked up 41 touches, including seven catches. The volume is there to keep Chubb an every-week RB1 ahead of a Week 3 home date with the Rams next Sunday night. The Rams shut down Alvin Kamara in Week 2 after getting eviscerated by Christian McCaffrey in the opener. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:24 pm

  • Le'Veon touches it 31 times for doomed Jets
    Le'Veon Bell rushed 21 times for 68 yards and caught all 10 of his targets for 61 yards in the Jets' 23-3, Week 2 loss to the Browns Monday night.

    Advice: With Trevor Siemian making the start, the Jets were already doomed before this one even kicked off. And then Siemian suffered a left ankle injury in the second quarter. Luke Falk, a 2015 seventh-round pick, entered to make his NFL debut. All of this led to Bell getting fed the ball relentlessly, something he probably loved. But we can't question his effort in this one. Bell could have easily given up and quit on a night the Jets had zero chance to win. But he ran hard. Unfortunately, Bell lost a fumble inside the 10-yard line in the fourth quarter while trying to fight for the end zone. With Falk likely to start Week 3 in New England, Bell should again flirt with 30 touches. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:19 pm

  • Bilal Powell a healthy scratch for Week 2
    Jets declared RB Bilal Powell, LB C.J. Mosley, DL Quinnen Williams, QB Sam Darnold, DL John Franklin-Myers, LB Jordan Willis, and OL Chuma Edgoa inactive Week 2 against the Browns.

    Advice: Powell is a healthy scratch. Mosley has a groin injury, Williams an ankle issue, and Darnold is week to week with mono. The Jets are already a mess. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:04 pm

  • Conner (knee) 'confident' he'll play Week 3
    James Conner (knee) said that he's confident he'll suit up for the Steelers' Week 3 matchup against the 49ers.

    Advice: Conner added that he's not dealing with any tears or anything significant with his knee. It's great news for the third-year RB, although it seems likely that he'll be entering Sunday's game at less than 100%. Conner is best approached as a low-end RB2 due to both heightened risk of re-aggravating the injury as well as the absence of Ben Roethlisberger (elbow, IR). It wouldn't be surprising to see backup RB Jaylen Samuels receive an enhanced workload while Conner is banged up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:18 pm

  • Devin Singletary (hamstring) day to day
    Bills RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) is considered day to day.

    Advice: The Bills are reportedly still gathering information on Singletary's hamstring issue. This setback certainly won't help him separate in a backfield that's been dominated by Frank Gore from a touch standpoint. Overall, Singletary (10 carries, six targets) hasn't received nearly as many opportunities as Gore (30 carries, two targets) despite playing more snaps. Look for T.J. Yeldon to take the bulk of Singletary's reps if the rookie is ultimately forced to miss game time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:13 pm

  • Kingsbury confirms DJ (wrist) is good to go
    Coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters Monday that RB David Johnson (wrist) is fine to play for the Cardinals' Week 3 matchup against the Panthers.

    Advice: The more pressing concern for Johnson is his usage, as he had just seven carries and one target in the team's Week 2 loss to the Ravens. Still, he faces little competition for snaps from backup Chase Edmonds and continues to work as the undisputed three-down back in the Cardinals' pass-first offense. Johnson has a prime chance to bounce back in Week 3 at home vs. a Panthers defense that has yielded solid days to the likes of Todd Gurley (14-97-0), Malcolm Brown (11-53-2) and Peyton Barber (23-82-1) through two weeks.

  • Josh Jacobs dealing with a groin injury
    Coach Jon Gruden told reporters Monday that RB Josh Jacobs is dealing with a groin issue.

    Advice: It's unclear if Jacobs is at risk of missing the Raiders' Week 3 matchup against the Vikings. He continues to work as the offense's undisputed lead back, but he might be a bit more game-script dependent than originally thought. Overall, Jacobs (26 snaps, zero targets) was behind each of DeAndre Washington (six snaps, two targets) and Jalen Richard (10 snaps, three targets) when it came to pass-game usage in Week 2. Jacobs is best approached as a lower-end RB2 ahead of his tough matchup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:03 pm

  • McGuire promoted to Cleveland's active roster
    Browns promoted RB Elijah McGuire from their practice squad.

    Advice: Fittingly, McGuire will make his Browns debut against the Jets, who waived him at final cuts this summer. He gives Cleveland some backfield depth with Dontrell Hilliard in the concussion protocol. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:24 am

  • Ito Smith outplays Freeman again
    Ito Smith rushed four times for 32 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 13 yards in Week 2 against the Eagles.

    Advice: Smith led the Falcons in rushing despite getting seven fewer carries than Devonta Freeman. It's the second straight week he's outplayed Freeman. Smith doesn’t have much standalone value, but with Freeman struggling, he’s one of the top handcuffs. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:01 pm

  • Devonta Freeman struggles again in Week 2
    Devonta Freeman had 11 carries for 22 yards in the Falcons' Week 2 win over the Eagles.

    Advice: Freeman was shut down in the run game, but he salvaged his night with three catches for 42 yards. There should be better days ahead for Freeman, who was held to 19 yards in the opener. Freeman has been losing significant snaps to Ito Smith through the first two games but remains the clear lead back. He gets a matchup with the Colts in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:58 pm

  • Miles Sanders starts, but held in check
    Miles Sanders rushed 10 times for 28 yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for nine yards in Week 2 against the Falcons.

    Advice: The Eagles gave Darren Sproles a nominal start in the season opener, but Sanders got the start over Jordan Howard this week. He out-touched Howard for the second straight game, but neither back was effective. Sanders has struggled in the early going, averaging just 2.5 YPC on 53 rushes. The Lions are a potential breakout spot for Sanders in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:54 pm

  • Howard held to 18 yards on eight carries
    Jordan Howard had eight carries for 18 yards in Week 2 against the Falcons.

    Advice: Howard was the No. 2 back behind Miles Sanders, who started and finished with two more carries. The Eagles lost multiple receivers to injuries, but they were forced to throw while playing from behind. Both Howard and Sanders failed to get in the end-zone on their goal-line chances. Howard hasn’t had much of a role with just 17 touches over the first two weeks. He's a touchdown-dependent FLEX for Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:51 pm

  • Davis overshadowed by Montgomery in Week 2
    Mike Davis collected one yard on three carries Sunday in the Bears’ Week 2 win over Denver.

    Advice: A week after leading the Bears' backfield with nine touches, Davis operated as a distant third wheel to David Montgomery and Tarik Cohen, playing a mere 15 snaps. Davis ran four routes but wasn't targeted by Mitchell Trubisky. With Montgomery taking on a feature role and Cohen working in his usual receiving-down capacity, it's hard to see where Davis fits in this backfield. Maybe his usage against the Redskins in Week 3 will enlighten us. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:21 pm

  • Ty Johnson gets five carries in Lions victory
    Ty Johnson handled seven touches for 36 yards in Detroit's Week 2 win over the Chargers.

    Advice: Johnson was surprisingly used ahead of C.J. Anderson on the ground, out-touching the latter 7-5 on the day. It continues to be awful news for Kerryon Johnson, who did lead this backfield with 12 carries and three targets, but saw all of Anderson (5/8), J.D. McKissic (2/2), and the rookie get involved on early downs. Johnson looks to be Kerryon's handcuff at this time. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:00 pm

  • Lindsay outplayed by Royce Freeman Sunday
    Phillip Lindsay went for 36 yards on 13 carries while turning seven targets into four catches for 30 yards Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 2 loss to Chicago.

    Advice: The second-year back showed occasional signs of life including a 19-yard burst in the second quarter (that came off a well-designed screen by Joe Flacco), but otherwise his contributions paled in comparison to Royce Freeman, who dwarfed Lindsay's output by delivering 102 yards from scrimmage (54 rushing, 48 receiving). Running into the teeth of a daunting Bears defense is not an enviable task, though on Sunday, Freeman showed more proficiency than Lindsay in that area. This backfield should continue to be a near-even split, which makes both players difficult to employ in fantasy. Lindsay and the Broncos will pack their bags for Lambeau Field, where the Packers await them in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:55 pm

  • Tarik Cohen bottled up at Mile High
    Tarik Cohen earned 18 yards on four carries while notching two catches for seven yards on five targets Sunday in Chicago’s Week 2 triumph over the Broncos.

    Advice: Cohen was slightly more involved in the Bears' rushing attack this week after essentially operating as their slot receiver in Week 1, but was mostly a non-factor, submitting just 25 yards on six touches while seeing fewer snaps (22) than ascendant rookie David Montgomery (27). We're not sure what to make of Cohen's early usage, though it stands to reason that Montgomery's presence will work against him from a fantasy perspective. Perhaps we'll get a clearer window into Cohen's role next week when the Bears travel to Washington to face the Redskins on Monday Night Football. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:55 pm
