Player Notes

  • Demaryius Thomas draws questionable tag
    Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is officially questionable for Week 2 against the Browns.

    Advice: Thomas is truly questionable after not practicing all week. Even if he suits up, he's not a recommended play with Trevor Siemian. The 31-year-old is a candidate to replace Quincy Enunwa's snaps whenever he gets cleared to play. Yesterday, 2:34 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Rashard Higgins officially questionable Wk 2
    Rashard Higgins (knee) is questionable for Week 2 against the Jets.

    Advice: Earlier in the week, Higgins said he'd be good to go for Monday Night Football, but Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said he wasn't really sure if that was the case. Higgins was a limited participant all week, a sign that he's most likely on track to suit up. With Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, and David Njoku all involved, Higgins is just a low-volume WR5 whenever he's healthy. Yesterday, 11:49 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Deebo to lose Week 2 snaps to Dante Pettis?
    San Francisco Chronicle's Eric Branch believes Deebo Samuel will lose snaps to Dante Pettis in Week 2.

    Advice: Samuel played 60-of-68 offensive snaps Week 1, while Pettis was limited to just two. "The disparity won’t be as great against the Bengals," says Branch, who notes Samuel had just 19 receiving yards with a fumble and a false-start penalty in the opener. Coach Kyle Shanahan also said it was his fault for playing Samuel "too much." Marquise Goodwin's status as a near full-time player seems somewhat safe, but Samuel and Pettis are in a battle now that Pettis' groin is improving. Yesterday, 11:19 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Marqise Lee (knee) downgraded, out for Sunday
    Marqise Lee (knee) has been ruled out for Week 2.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise after Lee didn't practice Friday. Lee only played 21 percent of snaps last week and is now dealing with a setback. The Jaguars will go with a three-wide set of Dede Westbrook, DJ Chark, and Chris Conley against the Texans. Yesterday, 10:56 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Antonio Brown 'expected to play' in Week 2
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Antonio Brown is expected to play in Week 2 against Miami.

    Advice: Brown is facing serious allegations in a civil lawsuit and only has two weeks in New England's scheme. It's still possible he ends up inactive, but he made the trip to Miami and looks on track to play. The Patriots gave Brown a $9 million signing bonus and likely want to get whatever they can from him before his accuser meets with the NFL next week. Brown's role is hard to forecast, but his matchup is good enough to overcome playbook and playing time concerns. Yesterday, 9:28 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • J.J. Nelson (ankle) officially ruled out
    Raiders WR J.J. Nelson (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 2.

    Advice: Nelson was never expected to play after missing practice all week. With Nelson out, rookie Keelan Doss could make his regular season debut. Yesterday, 9:22 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Cowboys add WR Cedrick Wilson to roster
    Cowboys promoted WR Cedrick Wilson from the practice squad.

    Advice: Wilson will serve as the No. 5 receiver with Tavon Austin (concussion) out. Dallas waived LB Chris Covington to clear a spot for Wilson. Yesterday, 8:16 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Byron Pringle promoted from practice squad
    Texans promoted WR Byron Pringle from the practice squad.

    Advice: They waived CB Tremon Smith in a corresponding move. Keke Coutee (ankle) was removed from the injury report, but Pringle's addition is notable after coach Bill O'Brien said the inactives "would be interesting" this week. Pringle has only been in Houston for three days, so his role will be limited role if active. Yesterday, 8:02 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Giants WR Darius Slayton out for Week 2
    Giants WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 2.

    Advice: Slayton has still yet to practice since his late preseason setback. The Giants are desperate for a receiver to step up with Sterling Shepard (concussion) sidelined and Cody Latimer (questionable, calf) less than 100 percent, but Slayton doesn't look close to returning. Yesterday, 7:02 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Trent Taylor (foot) out again for Week 2
    Trent Taylor (foot) is out for Week 2 against the Bengals.

    Advice: RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) and WR Jalen Hurd (back) will join him on the sidelines. Taylor doesn't seem any closer to returning from his broken foot—an injury he suffered over a month ago—though there's no indication he'll be placed on injured reserve. Richie James will continue to serve as the Niners' primary slot receiver. Friday, 5:41 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • David Moore trending toward Week 3 return
    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said David Moore (shoulder) could be back for Week 3 against New Orleans.

    Advice: He was ruled out for Sunday's matchup with Pittsburgh despite getting in a full week of practice. At one point it looked like Moore could be headed to I.R., but he's made a rapid recovery and could return to Seattle's pass-catching corps as soon as next week. Moore won't provide any redraft value, but he's still a helpful depth piece for the Seahawks. Friday, 2:21 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Brown (hip) listed questionable, will play
    Ravens WR Marquise Brown (hip) will play through his questionable tag for the team's Week 2 matchup against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Brown didn't practice Friday, but this was also the case in Week 1. Coach John Harbaugh clarified to reporters Friday that Hollywood is again expected to suit up come game time. The question is whether that will include a full-time role; Brown played on just 14-of-76 offensive snaps in Week 1. The Ravens' passing offense is set up brilliantly against the Cardinals' mediocre secondary that will continue to be without their top-two CBs for the foreseeable future. Friday, 1:57 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Coutee (ankle) ready to make season debut
    Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) is good to go for the Texans' Week 2 matchup against the Jaguars.

    Advice: It's worth noting that coach Bill O'Brien stated Friday that, "Inactives will be interesting, lot of guys playing well." We expect Coutee to be active, but he's more of a candidate to take DeAndre Carter's (42% snaps in Week 1) role and split reps with Kenny Stills (42%) than he is a threat to Will Fuller (97%). The entire Texans offense is worth getting exposure to when at full strength; they've averaged 30.6 points in 12 games with each of Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins and Fuller active. Friday, 1:25 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Tyler Lockett (back) cleared to face Steelers
    Tyler Lockett (back) wasn't listed on the Seahawks' final injury report for Week 2 against the Steelers.

    Advice: Lockett didn't practice Wednesday and was limited Thursday due to back spasms, but he wasn't listed on the Seahawks' final injury report. Coach Pete Carroll clarified to reporters earlier in the day that Lockett is indeed "fine." He's set up brilliantly this week against a Steelers defense that has historically struggled to slow down elite slot WRs. Lockett possesses one of the week's top-nine matchups in terms of the difference in 40-yard dash times between himself and his projected matchup against CB Mike Hilton. Friday, 1:16 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Nuk (ribs) not listed on final injury report
    DeAndre Hopkins (ribs) is good to go for the Texans' Week 2 matchup against the Jaguars.

    Advice: Hopkins was limited all week due to a ribs injury, but he'll be a full go Sunday against Jalen Ramsey and company. Nuk hasn't had a problem producing in Ramsey's shadow over the years, posting 5-48-0, 8-87-0, 7-55-1, 4-80-1, 3-50-1 and most-recently 12-147-0 receiving lines in their six career matchups. Will Fuller is set up brilliantly on the other side of the field against a Jaguars defense that could be without No. 2 CB A.J. Bouye (hip, questionable). Friday, 1:08 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • JuJu (toe) not listed on final injury report
    JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) is good to go for the Steelers' Week 2 matchup against the Seahawks.

    Advice: JuJu (90% snap rate) and Donte Moncrief (90%) were the Steelers' only full-time WRs in Week 1, as each of Ryan Switzer (69%), James Washington (52%) and Diontae Johnson (36%) were featured more as auxiliary options. JuJu is locked in as a WR1 as the undisputed lead target in what looks like one of the league's most pass-heavy offenses. The whole passing game is set up well against a Seahawks defense that just allowed Andy Dalton to throw for 418 yards and a pair of scores in Week 1. Friday, 1:02 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Mike Williams a game-time decision for Sunday
    Coach Anthony Lynn told reporters Friday that Mike Williams (knee, questionable) is a game-time decision for the Chargers' Week 2 matchup against the Lions.

    Advice: Lynn specifically noted, "I just need to see that he can go out and play, and not hurt himself ... He has a couple more days, so we'll go day by day." Lynn also didn't reject the idea that Williams could be on a snap count if active. Williams is incredibly difficult to trust this week in any fantasy format. Expected the Chargers' passing game to heavily flow through Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler with Hunter Henry (knee, out) and potentially Williams sidelined. Friday, 12:26 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Tavon Austin (concussion) out for Week 2
    Cowboys WR/RB Tavon Austin (concussion) has been ruled out for their Week 2 matchup against the Redskins.

    Advice: Austin played 25-of-68 (37%) snaps in the Cowboys' Week 1 win over the Giants. He's tentatively expected to be replaced as a punt returner by WR Cedric Wilson. The Cowboys will continue to utilize Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Randall Cobb in 3-WR sets. Friday, 12:20 pm
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Albert Wilson (calf, hip) out for Week 2
    Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (calf, hip) has been ruled out for the Dolphins' Week 2 matchup against the Patriots.

    Advice: Wilson was being force fed targets in Week 1 prior to being injured. Allen Hurns will takeover for Wilson in the slot and is expected to be flanked by DeVante Parker as well as a combination of Jakeem Grant and Preston Williams. Each is a thin play this week against the Patriots' dominant secondary, which is headlined by CB Stephon Gilmore, who is expected to travel with Parker for the majority of the afternoon. Friday, 11:44 am
    Week 2 Projected Rank
  • Hurd (back), Taylor (foot) out again Week 2
    49ers WRs Jalen Hurd (back) and Trent Taylor (foot) have been ruled out for the team's Week 2 matchup against the Bengals.

    Advice: Last week the 49ers played five WRs. Deebo Samuel (88% snaps) and Marquise Goodwin (73%) emerged as the only full-time players, as each of Richie James (39%), Kendrick Bourne (25%) and Dante Pettis didn't even line up for half of the offense's snaps. Neither Samuel nor Goodwin is set up particularly well on the outside this week against Dre Kirkpatrick and William Jackson. Friday, 11:14 am
