Player Notes

  • Saints send WR Keith Kirkwood (hammy) to IR
    Saints placed Keith Kirkwood (hamstring) on injured reserve.

    Advice: Kirkwood was injured during pre-game warmups last week, and it must be more severe than originally let on. Kirkwood averaged 10 yards on his 21 targets last year as a rookie, but he wasn't projected for a role in 2019 with Ted Ginn and Tre'Quan Smith as the secondary options to Michael Thomas.

  • Bengals waive WR/KR Pharoh Cooper
    Bengals waived WR/KR Pharoh Cooper.

    Advice: Cooper wasn't able to make any noise in coach Zac Taylor's scheme during the two weeks he spent with the club. The former All-Pro and Pro Bowl special teamer should get another chance elsewhere. Yesterday, 4:11 pm

  • Chargers sign TE Lance Kendricks
    Chargers signed TE Lance Kendricks.

    Advice: The Bolts also re-signed DE Chris Peace, and to make room for the signings, they waived WR Andre Patton and placed S Adrian Phillips on injured reserve. Kendricks will be a depth option while Hunter Henry rehabs back from his knee injury. Yesterday, 4:08 pm

  • Humphries' chemistry is a 'work in progress'
    Adam Humphries chemistry with Marcus Mariota is "a work in progress."

    Advice: Humphries has been on more than half of the Titans' passing plays, but he's only been targeted three times in two games. And to make matters worse, he has a whopping four receiving yards. Humphries points to third downs as a place where he and Mariota need to get on the same page, but there's almost zero ceiling for Humphries in fantasy with Corey Davis, A.J. Brown, and Delanie Walker being more involved. Yesterday, 3:31 pm

  • Cardinals work out Alfred Morris
    The Cardinals worked out free agent RB Alfred Morris.

    Advice: There was some thought Morris would return to San Francisco, but that visit has yet to materialize. David Johnson tweaked his wrist in Week 2 but played through the issue. The Cardinals were likely just updating their emergency list. Yesterday, 3:14 pm

  • AJG says he'll be out longer than 6-8 weeks
    Speaking last week, A.J. Green (ankle) said he expected to be sidelined longer than his publicly reported 6-8 week timetable.

    Advice: Green went down in the opening days of camp in late July. 6-8 weeks would have had him near a return now. Green said that won't be the case. "I don’t know where they got the 6-8 weeks from. It’s going to be longer than that," were Green's words last Wednesday. "It’s just one of those things that has to heal on its own. When I feel I’m healthy enough to play at the level I’m used to playing, I just want to make sure it’s at 100 percent." Contract-year Green sounds like someone who won't be taking the field until he is either 100 percent healthy, extended or both. Fantasy stashers should not count on Green playing in the month of September. Yesterday, 3:04 pm

  • Lions claim Giants bust RB Paul Perkins
    Lions claimed RB Paul Perkins off waivers from the Giants.

    Advice: Perkins spent some time with the Giants' second-team offense during the summer but was a healthy scratch for both Weeks 1 and 2. He is taking C.J. Anderson's roster spot in Detroit but is unlikely to inherit his No. 2 role. Perkins figures to be a healthy scratch for Week 3. Yesterday, 2:49 pm

  • Lions cut bait on C.J. Anderson after 2 games
    Lions released RB C.J. Anderson.

    Advice: Anderson was de-emphasized in the Lions' Week 2 game plan, seeing both his snaps and touches halved. We would like to think it's good news for Kerryon Johnson, though the corresponding move to Anderson's release was claiming Paul Perkins off waivers. Johnson actually saw his snap percentage decline in Week 2 from Week 1. As CJA showed last postseason, there is still some juice in his 28-year-old legs. He should resurface shortly. Yesterday, 2:44 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Marqise Lee returns to full practice
    Marqise Lee (knee) was upgraded to "full" in Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Lee appears poised to return after sitting out in Week 2, but he is no better than the Jags' No. 4 receiver right now. That is not going to play with a backup quarterback at the controls. Lee is miles from re-draft relevance. Yesterday, 2:19 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • D.J. Chark (ankle) upgraded to 'full' Tuesday
    D.J. Chark (ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Chark will be ready to rock for Thursday night's game against the Titans. The owner of 201 yards through the Jaguars' first two games, Chark has an exploitable matchup in the Titans' boundary corners, but Gardner Minshew presents a problem at quarterback. Explosive Chark is a low-floor, high-ceiling WR4 for Week 3. Yesterday, 2:17 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • A.J. Brown (knee) upgraded to 'full' Tuesday
    A.J. Brown (knee) was upgraded to "full" in Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: It means Brown will be good to go for Thursday's game against the Jaguars. Brown has looked like the Titans' best receiver through the first two games of his career, but he is going to have trouble translating that to fantasy value for as long as Marcus Mariota is at the controls of a run-first offense. Yesterday, 2:16 pm

  • Arians on O.J. Howard: 'The balls will come'
    Speaking about O.J. Howard's slow start on Tuesday, Bucs coach Bruce Arians said "the balls will come."

    Advice: "We don't dictate who gets the ball, the defense does," Arians protested. "So sometimes it will spread around for different people every week." That, of course, makes sense in theory, but it is hard to believe Howard could play 55 snaps and draw zero targets, which is what happened in Week 2. Fantasy players wanted to believe Arians' lack of roto-relevant tight ends in Arizona was more because of a lack of talent than scheme, but it is looking like the uber-talented Howard is going to be a season-long rollercoaster in Arians' offense. It does sound like there is some squeaky wheel potential for Week 3 against the Giants. Yesterday, 2:01 pm

  • Report: DeSean could miss next two games's Tom Pelissero reports DeSean Jackson (groin) is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Lions and will likely remain sidelined for the Eagles' Week 4 Thursday night contest.

    Advice: ESPN's Tim McManus reports Jackson is dealing with more of an abdominal strain than groin issue, and has been bothered by it for weeks. With Alshon Jeffery (groin) also expected to sit, the Eagles will be severely undermanned at wideout vs. the Lions. Jackson's injury is not considered overly serious, but it was the worst possible timing for the Eagles to have two games in five days. Nelson Agholor will be the Eagles' fill-in No. 1 with Mack Hollins and JJ Arcega-Whiteside running behind him. Yesterday, 2:00 pm

  • 'Unclear' when league will reach AB decision
    The Washington Post reports it is "unclear" when the league will decide if Antonio Brown will be placed on the commissioner's exempt list.

    Advice: Via reporter Mark Maske, there is "no timeline." Maske confirms the league met with Brown's first accuser, Britney Taylor, for 10 hours on Monday. Per Maske, there is "nothing imminent." It would seem as if Brown will be allowed to play in Week 3 against the Jets. Yesterday, 12:51 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Demaryius Thomas (multiple) week to week
    Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) is week to week.

    Advice: Thomas made it only seven snaps before tapping out on Monday evening. With Gang Green already down to its third-string quarterback, it really doesn't matter if Thomas is available. It sounds like he will miss Week 3. Yesterday, 10:35 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Washington working out RB McNichols Tuesday
    Free agent RB Jeremy McNichols will work out with the Redskins Tuesday.

    Advice: The former 2017 fifth-rounder arguably out-played David Fluellen with the Titans this preseason, but the latter's ability to play fullback kept him on the active roster. The next team McNichols signs with will be his fifth since entering the league. Yesterday, 6:25 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • 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. Yesterday, 5:19 am
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • Ryan Griffin doesn't catch pass in MNF loss
    Ryan Griffin failed to catch his lone target in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: Griffin was on the deep-league and DFS radar after playing every snap in the Week 1 loss, but he was nonexistent as a pass-catcher in this one despite seeing plenty of the field. The Jets simply gave the ball to Le'Veon Bell as many times possible with Sam Darnold (mono) out. Monday, 8:49 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • 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. Monday, 8:47 pm
    Week 3 Projected Rank
  • 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. Monday, 8:45 pm
