  Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon idle    Wed Sep 19, 10:12 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) is not expected to practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: Yeldon is missing practice but Leonard Fournette should be back this week. Stay tuned to this backfield as the week goes on, but early signs indicate Fournette should start in Week 3 against the Titans.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is expected to practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

  Steelers | Antonio Brown will be in attendance    Wed Sep 19, 08:55 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is expected to be in the facility Wednesday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: Brown missed practice on Monday due to a personal reason...at least that's what his agent says. Mike Tomlin has met with Brown and it seems like they're on the same page. This added drama doesn't help a team that hasn't won a game and is still dealing with their superstar running back holding out. The Steelers travel to Tampa to take on the Buccaneers for Monday Night Football in Week 3.

  Dolphins | DeVante Parker could've played in Week 2    Wed Sep 19, 02:49 AM

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) was healthy enough to play in Week 2, according to head coach Adam Gase, who cited 'a lot of moving parts' as to why Parker was inactive. Gase, who informed Parker of his decision the night before the game, also indicated that an extra week of rest wouldn't hurt with Parker's health.

  Giants | Eli Apple likely questionable for Week 3    Tue Sep 18, 10:24 PM

New York Giants CB Eli Apple (groin) has graded out as the ninth-best cornerback per Pro Football Focus, but his availability for Week 3 versus the Houston Texans appears to be in some doubt after that coach Pat Shurmur offered a 'we'll see' about Apple's status during an interview with WFAN on Tuesday, Sept. 18.

  Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster staying busy inside 20    Tue Sep 18, 09:09 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster leads the NFL with eight red zone targets through two weeks.

Footballguys view: Smith-Schuster has scored the 7th-most fantasy points in standard scoring leagues after two games. He's done that with only one receiving touchdown so far. If he continues to get this much work in the red zone, Smith-Schuster will get more touchdowns and more points. Most Fantasy GMs can start Smith-Schuster as a WR2 even though he's posting WR1 numbers.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota showing improvement    Tue Sep 18, 08:56 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) is 'probably better than he was Friday or Saturday (of last week),' head coach Mike Vrabel told Nashville's 104.5 FM on Tuesday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: His status was unchanged on Monday but Mariota must be making progress. If he can't play, the Titans would again turn to Blaine Gabbert as their starter.

  Bears | More work for Jordan Howard?    Tue Sep 18, 06:39 PM

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard will 'probably' be given more carries going forward, according to Matt Nagy. Nagy added that the Bears won't plan a certain amount of passes or carries in any particular game, they'll simply 'play it out as is.'

Footballguys view: Howard is tied for the 12th most rushing yards (117) after two games in the 2018 season. He's got 175 yards from scrimmage which is 30th in the league at this point. It's good to hear that he'll 'probably' get more carries, but Fantasy GMs already have Howard locked in as a high-end RB2 most weeks.

  Colts | Jeremy McNichols returns to Colts    Tue Sep 18, 06:21 PM

Free-agent RB Jeremy McNichols (Colts) was re-signed to the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 18. QB Phillip Walker was released from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: McNichols is a decent all-purpose back who is going to try and impress on the scout team. He was a fifth-round pick by the Buccaneers in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Patriots | Josh Gordon trade official    Tue Sep 18, 05:18 PM

New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon passed his physical and was officially acquired by the New England Patriots Tuesday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: It's officially official now. Tom Brady has commented on Gordon's arrival and he wants the receiver to work hard and be a team-first guy. We'll see if Gordon can stop being a malcontent like he was in Cleveland and find a spark with one of the league's best teams. Gordon could play in Week 3, but we'd imagine his role would be limited as he's just going to be learning the complex Patriots offense. We see him as a 'what the heck' flex in Week 3 against the Lions.

  Jets | Quincy Enunwa full go    Tue Sep 18, 04:44 PM

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (thumb) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: Enunwa seems to be Sam Darnold's favorite target this year. He's got 13 receptions in two games so far, and his role on underneath routes makes him a PPR special...but as a flex play.
