Player Notes

  • Jordy Nelson (quad) expects to play this week
    Jordy Nelson (quad) expects to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals.

    Advice: Nelson's status was looking questionable after sitting out the entire second half last week, but he's on track to play after practicing in full. He should be active barring a setback, though expectations should be downgraded at less than 100 percent. The Packers are trending up with Nelson and RT Bryan Bulaga looking likely to return. Randall Cobb (chest) didn't practice Wednesday and is more up in the air for Week 3. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:03 pm

  • Kendall Wright (shoulder) limited on Wednesda
    Kendall Wright (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Wright played his usual snaps in last week's loss to Tampa Bay and should be a go for Week 3 against the Steelers. He leads the Bears with 102 receiving yards in the early going. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:52 pm

  • Paul Richardson (finger) practicing Wednesday
    Paul Richardson (finger) is practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Richardson played through a dislocated finger Sunday, but his Week 3 status isn't in doubt. He should play his normal snaps against the Titans. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:22 pm

  • Amari Cooper (knee) limited on Wednesday
    Amari Cooper (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: This is the same routine Cooper has been following all year. He'll be fine for Week 3 at Washington, though he has a tough matchup against shutdown corner Josh Norman. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:18 pm

  • Bears hoping to have Wheaton for Week 3
    The Bears are "hopeful" Markus Wheaton (finger) will make his season debut against the Steelers in Week 3.

    Advice: He was a full participant at Wednesday's practice. It's taken Wheaton over a month to recover from a broken pinkie but the Bears are confident this will be the week he finally returns to action. He'll join a depleted receiving corps featuring spare parts like Kendall Wright, Keonte Thompson and Josh Bellamy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:52 pm

  • Demaryius Thomas limited with hamstring issue
    Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: It's a new injury for Thomas, who caught 6-of-8 targets for 71 yards last week. The limited practice suggests he's on track to play, but any hamstring issue is a concern. Thomas has a matchup with Buffalo in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:39 pm

  • Phillip Dorsett (knee) limited on Wednesday
    Phillip Dorsett (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: He exited Week 2 with a knee injury but it was never thought to be anything serious. Dorsett impressed with 68 yards last week at New Orleans but we wouldn't expect a repeat performance Sunday versus Houston. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:19 pm

  • Chris Hogan (knee) limited on Wednesday
    Chris Hogan (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Hogan came out of last week's game a little nicked up, but he'll be fine for Sunday's battle with Houston. He's reeled in six-of-11 targets for 86 yards and a touchdown through his first two games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:18 pm

  • Corey Davis (hamstring) ruled out vs Seattle
    Corey Davis (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 3.

    Advice: The early rule out comes as a surprise after Davis played through a mid-game setback last week. Coach Mike Mularkey said Davis was day to day, but the Titans want to rest him in an effort to get fully healthy. Davis will target a Week 4 return. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:16 pm

  • Packers don't clear Randall Cobb to practice
    Randall Cobb (chest) was held out of Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Cobb is listed with a chest injury despite undergoing an MRI on his shoulder. He was considered day to day, but the missed practice isn't a good start to the week. The Packers are hoping to have both Jordy Nelson (quad) and Cobb for Sunday's game with the Bengals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:51 pm

  • Odell Beckham (ankle) limited on Wednesday
    Odell Beckham (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: The Giants are just managing his practice reps coming off Monday night's game against the Lions. Beckham came down with four catches for 36 yards in that game while playing 34-of-56 offensive snaps. Now that he's had a game to shake off the rust, OBJ should be treated as a WR1 in all formats.

  • DeVante Parker limited to start practice week
    DeVante Parker (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: It's a new injury after Parker caught 4-of-9 targets for 85 yards last week. The limited practice suggests he's dealing with a mild sprain. Parker's status will be updated Thursday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:25 pm

  • Allen Hurns a limited participant Wednesday
    Allen Hurns (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: It shouldn't keep him from suiting up Sunday against Baltimore. Hurns led the Jags with 82 yards in Week 2, though most of his production came in garbage time. He's worth a bench stash in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:05 pm

  • Bruce Ellington clears concussion protocol
    Bruce Ellington has cleared the league's concussion protocol.

    Advice: He'll be back this week after missing Week 2. Ellington will fight for targets behind DeAndre Hopkins but isn't a reliable fantasy option for Week 3. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:37 pm

  • Will Fuller ruled out for Week 3 at Patriots
    Will Fuller (collarbone) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Patriots.

    Advice: Fuller was back at practice this week, but he still needs time to recover from the broken collarbone. Bruce Ellington (concussion) will be back for Houston this week to play alongside DeAndre Hopkins and Braxton Miller. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:36 pm

  • Mike Wallace says he 'needs the rock' more
    Mike Wallace said he "needs the rock" more moving forward.

    Advice: Wallace has been targeted a total of four times through two games, securing two of them for a total of 15 yards. "I play wide receiver," Wallace said. "I don't play to block. But at the same time, when you're winning, it makes it all good. I'm going to find ways to make plays. I will make plays." Jeremy Maclin is the new No. 1 in Baltimore, and the Ravens are running the ball more. Wallace will obviously be better, but he's nothing more than a WR5 in fantasy right now.

  • Bennie Fowler dealing with a concussion
    Bennie Fowler (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Fowler caught one pass for eight yards on three targets before leaving with a concussion. Fowler caught a pair of touchdowns in the opener and apparently has solidified the role of No. 3 receiver in Denver. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:31 am

  • Kelvin Benjamin (ribs, knee) DNP Wednesday
    Kelvin Benjamin (ribs. knee) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Benjamin got crunched in the end zone against the Bills, but he stayed in the game. He admitted he's just sore. With Greg Olsen (foot) on I.R., Benjamin could be in for a heavy spike in targets as a possible Week 3 breakout. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:27 am

  • No surprise: John Brown (quad) DNP Wednesday
    John Brown (quad) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: He's not expected to play this week. J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown will fill in as the Nos. 2 and 3 receivers, and Nelson will again be a high-ceiling WR3. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:51 am

  • Jarvis Landry a no-go at practice Wednesday
    Jarvis Landry (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Landry popped up on the injury report with a knee issue last Friday, but ultimately played against the Chargers and led the Dolphins with 13 catches for 78 yards on 15 targets. It could just be a rest day for Landry, who was riding the bike at practice. We'll update Landry again no later than Thursday.Daily Slant: Landry currently owns the lowest air yards per target in the league (3.2). On the opposite end of the spectrum, DeVante Parker is 5th with 18.3 air yards per target and he accounted for 47.7% of the team's total air yards (2nd). A popular breakout candidate, Parker has a beautiful matchup with the Jets secondary this weekend. Last week, Cutler aimed for Landry a ton due to Parker's tough draw against Casey Hayward; this time around, he'll be looking for Parker. Most importantly, he'll be looking for him deep downfield. Parker could be in for a massive game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:30 am
