  Patriots | Rex Burkhead absent from practice Wednesday    Wed Sep 20, 01:58 PM

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (rib) was not at practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Footballguys view: Watch to see if Burkhead can practice later in the week. If he's able to play in Week 3 against the Texans, Burkhead would only be a what-the-heck flex for fantasy owners.

  Texans | Ryan Griffin cleared    Wed Sep 20, 01:53 PM

Houston Texans TE Ryan Griffin (concussion) is no longer in the league's concussion protocol.

Footballguys view: Griffin is soon to be back on the field for the Texans, but it doesn't mean there's a ton of fantasy relevance. Even with C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) on Injured Reserve, Griffin still shouldn't get enough work to make a viable option for fantasy owners.

  Patriots | Key Patriots practice Wednesday    Wed Sep 20, 01:36 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) and WR Danny Amendola (knee, concussion) were among a group of injured players who were able to practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski has previously stated that his groin injury was no big deal, and it certainly wasn't enough of a concern to keep him off the field for Wednesday's practice. If he plays - and it certainly looks like he will, he's a TE1 for your fantasy team.

  Colts | Andrew Luck still not ready to practice    Wed Sep 20, 01:16 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will not practice at all prior to the team's Week 3 game versus the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: It's going to be some time before we see Luck back on the practice field...let alone the playing field for the Colts. At this point, a return in Week 5 or Week 6 seems a bit outlandish. Perhaps something will hint towards which direction the team goes in the near future.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell wants more work    Wed Sep 20, 12:58 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell reportedly asked head coach Hue Jackson about the lack of carries through two games, and said Jackson told him he wants to get Crowell the ball more often.

Footballguys view: Crowell's snap count went from 52 in Week 1 to only 32 in Week 2, and he only has 27 carries in two games so far this season. He could be the bellcow for the Browns if called upon with a workload that includes 20-plus carries a game. Instead, Crowell is barely being used compared to what some fantasy owners expected before the season started. So far in 2017, the Colts have only allowed an average of 73.0 rushing yards per game. Crowell has a tougher than some think matchup in Week 3, and we can only recommend him as a RB2/flex option for fantasy owners.

  Falcons | Vic Beasley, Courtney Upshaw ruled out Week 3    Wed Sep 20, 12:09 PM

Atlanta Falcons LB Vic Beasley (hamstring) and LB Courtney Upshaw (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 20, and have already been ruled out for Week 3 against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Losing Beasley hurts the Falcons pass rushing impact. We'll see more asked of rookie Takkarist McKinley while Beasley is out. Brooks Reed and Adrian Clayborn will help get pressure on the quarterback too.

  Vikings | Sam Bradford improving    Wed Sep 20, 11:33 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was feeling better Tuesday, Sept. 19, and he's being considered day to day, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Footballguys view: Bradford missed the Week 2 game against the Steelers due to this knee injury. It looks like Case Keenum will head back to the bench and Bradford will be out there against the Buccaneers. His return should help the numbers for guys like WRs Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs and TE Kyle Rudolph.

  Texans | Deshaun Watson has rough framing for NE matchup    Wed Sep 20, 10:22 AM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson has a tough matchup against the New England Patriots in Week 3 based on historical data. No rookie quarterback has won in New England since head coach Bill Belichick was hired in 2000. They are 0-8 with five touchdowns, 16 interceptions and a 50.7 passer rating.

Footballguys view: So you're saying there's a chance? Things don't look good for Watson this week, but the Patriots defense is not reminding anyone of the '85 Bears this season. The Patriots have the 31st ranked pass defense after two weeks and allow an average of 350.0 passing yards per game. Their run defense isn't much better, ranking 27th in the league by allowing an average of 133.0 yards per game. That being said, the Texans (and Watson) have their work cut out for them in Week 3.

  Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers dealing with flu    Wed Sep 20, 09:50 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers (illness) started in Week 2 despite batting with the flu.

Footballguys view: Watch Rodgers during the week of practice to monitor his participation. Doug Martin is still suspended for two more games, so Rodgers remains as the primary back for the Buccaneers. That makes him a RB2/flex option for fantasy owners in all formats.

  Bears | Tarik Cohen taking his time    Tue Sep 19, 11:33 PM

Chicago Bears rookie RB Tarik Cohen is averaging 6.6 yards per carry on his 12 rushing attempts through two games but is spending an average of 4.17 seconds per run before crossing the line of scrimmage - nearly a full second more than any other player in league with at least 10 carries this season.

Footballguys view: That's an unusual stat but it shows how Cohen is patient when waiting for his runs to develop. It also shows how many of his carries go outside the tackles (no6 in the NFL with nine carries outside the tackles in 2017). No matter the time, Cohen has shown that he's worth getting the ball to in many different ways. His speed and playmaking ability give him flex appeal every week no matter the matchup.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville RBs running into a crowd     Tue Sep 19, 11:14 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RBs Chris Ivory (73.3 percent) and Leonard Fournette (52.5) rank first and fifth, respectively, in the NFL in regards to how often they face eight defenders in the box.

Footballguys view: Opponents know the Jaguars want to run the rock and keep the ball out of the hands of QB Blake Bortles. They are responding by loading the box and daring the Jaguars to throw. If a game goes according to plan, Fournette is going to get plenty of work and he has no problem slamming it against an 8-man front all day. When games go off script (see Week 2 vs Tennessee), the running backs are put on the back burner.

  Packers | Martellus Bennett struggling with fundamentals?    Tue Sep 19, 10:33 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett finished with five catches for 47 yards in a Week 2 loss to the Atlanta Falcons but committed four drops - a problem offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett believes is rooted in fundamentals.

Footballguys view: Multiple drops and a pass interference penalty hurt Bennett's production in Week 2. He's got eight receptions for 90 yards over the first two weeks of the season, but fantasy owners were expecting more in a high-powered Packers passing attack. We'll see if Bennett can round into form as the season goes on.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins leading NFL in targets    Tue Sep 19, 10:31 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has 29 targets through Week 2, making him easily the most targeted receiver in the league through two games.

Footballguys view: That makes a lot of sense as the other WRs for the Texans are either hurt or avergae at best. Feed the machine, and rookie QB Deshaun Watson should have an absolute mandate to feature Hopkins early and often when going to the air.

  Saints | Sterling Moore could miss Week 3    Tue Sep 19, 09:00 PM

New Orleans Saints CB Sterling Moore (pectoral) suffered a pectoral injury in Week 2 against the New England Patriots. According to the New Orleans Advocate's Nick Underhill, it is 'unclear' if Moore will be able to play in Week 3 versus the Carolina Panthers.

  NFL | Dalvin Cook, Kareem Hunt living off big plays    Tue Sep 19, 08:31 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook and Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt lead the NFL with six big-play rushes - defined as runs that cover more than 10 yards - through two games.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners who took a chance on the rookie duo are getting a lot of rewards in return. Both backs have big play ability, and their respective teams are being creative in the ways they're used on a weekly basis. Cook and Hunt have RB1 upside every week no matter the opponent.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville claims Jaelen Strong    Tue Sep 19, 04:37 PM

Free-agent WR Jaelen Strong (Texans) was claimed off waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars Tuesday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: With Allen Robinson (knee) done for the year and rookie Dede Westbrook (core) banged up, the Jaguars wanted to add talent at the position. Injuries and inconsistency have knocked Strong's career off track. We'll see if a new home can help the third-round pick (2015) play better.

  Jets | Kalif Raymond waived    Tue Sep 19, 04:23 PM

New York Jets WR Kalif Raymond was waived Tuesday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: Raymond competed in training camp with the Broncos this year but couldn't make the roster. Undrafted out of Holy Cross in 2016, Raymond is super quick and electric with the ball in his hands. It's not a good sign that he can't stick with the WR-depleted Jets.
