  Jets | Matt Forte's early workload not a concern     Sat Sep 24, 12:32 PM

New York Jets RB Matt Forte is on pace for 472 touches this season, but head coach Todd Bowles is not among those worried about his 30-year-old holding up for the entire season.

Footballguys view: Bowles perhaps should be worried...and savvy fantasy owners should hold onto Bilal Powell tightly. If anything happens to Forte, Powell would take over with a huge workload and RB1 upside.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings likely to play Week 3    Sat Sep 24, 12:18 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (hand) is continuing to work through his sprained left thumb and done enough to make offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan believe he'll be able to play through the injury in Week 3 versus the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Jennings should play..and he should be the lead back for the Giants. However, fantasy owners should consider him no more than a RB3/flex option against Washington.

  Steelers | Markus Wheaton will share snaps    Sat Sep 24, 12:16 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) is set to return from a sprained right shoulder in Week 3 versus the Philadelphia Eagles, but he will do so in a timeshare with Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Footballguys view: Wheaton was on track to return last week, but the team decided to give him some more rest. In his first action this season, we can't yet trust Wheaton -- even as a what the heck flex. The split between these three WRs (Wheaton, Coates, Heyward-Bey) will negatively impact their fantasy value.

  Colts | Andrew Luck to play Sunday    Sat Sep 24, 10:59 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will play in Week 3's game against the San Diego Chargers, even though he is listed as questionable on the injury report, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. He was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 23, after practicing on a limited basis Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Luck was beat up against the Broncos last week. He's set to light up a bad Chargers defense in Week 3. We wouldn't be surprised to see him finish as the best fantasy QB in this matchup.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz to return in Week 5    Sat Sep 24, 10:52 AM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (rib) will return to action Oct. 9, during Week 5's game against the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Doug Pederson. He has already been ruled out for Week 3's game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers and the club has a bye in Week 4.

Footballguys view: Ertz will get plenty of time to recover from this injury. In the meantime, Trey Burton continues to be a sneaky TE play for DFS players.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said WR Julio Jones (calf) is expected to be available for Week 3's game against the New Orleans Saints, even though he missed practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Footballguys view: The Falcons play the Saints on Monday night. Jones should be ready to go by that time with an extra day of rest. Set him in your lineup as a WR1 (as per usual) in Week 3.

  Dolphins | Jay Ajayi to be part of committee     Sat Sep 24, 12:46 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi has been making the most of his carries, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen, but Christensen said Ajayi will be part of a committee against the Cleveland Browns in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Ajayi should be the biggest part of that RBBC, but fantasy owners should only consider him a low-end RB2 -- even in a great matchup against a weak Browns defense in Week 3.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper stretching the field    Sat Sep 24, 12:32 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper is averaging 18.9 yards per catch this season, which ranks second among players with at least 10 receptions.

Footballguys view: The Raiders defense looks soft as butter after two weeks. This puts more on the team's passing game (and Cooper) to do more to stay in games. That's great news for Cooper's fantasy owners. He's a WR1 in Week 3 against the Titans.

  Texans | Brock Osweiler takes blame for loss    Sat Sep 24, 12:14 AM

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he takes the blame for the performance of the offense against the New England Patriots in Week 3, and he said he will become a better quarterback because of the experience.

Footballguys view: Osweiler should be better than he is right now. He's spent four years developing in Denver, but he looked lost against the Patriots on Thursday night. We'll see how the team gets him more comfortable to see if Osweiler can be more reliable.

  Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo could play in Week 4    Fri Sep 23, 11:49 PM

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) has a chance to play against the Buffalo Bills in Week 4, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We'll know more about this QB situation later in the week. Both Garoppolo and rookie Jacoby Brissett (thumb) are banged up and Tom Brady still has one more game on his suspension.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo's recovery on schedule    Fri Sep 23, 11:29 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) has begun throwing, and his recovery from a back injury is going well, executive vice president Stephen Jones said Friday, Sept. 23.

Footballguys view: We could see Romo back in action for the Cowboys somewhere around Week 8. In the meantime, rookie Dak Prescott will continue to start at QB.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael set for 20 carries?    Fri Sep 23, 11:13 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael is 'ready for a bigger load' against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3, according to head coach Pete Carroll, and Carroll said Michael is ready to carry the ball '20-something times' in a game.

Footballguys view: The split with Thomas Rawls negatively impacts the fantasy value of both backs. This week against the 49ers, Rawls is doubtful with a shin injury. That makes Michael a potential RB1 in Week 3. Consider him if you need a cheaper RB in DFS, and start him as a RB2 in season-long fantasy.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims set for big workload?    Fri Sep 23, 11:01 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers said he only expects to play when RB Charles Sims needs a breather.

Footballguys view: Sims could play like a RB1 this week -- even in a matchup against a tough Rams front four. Put him in your lineup as a mid-range RB2 just to be safe. He should dominate the touches in the Bucs backfield.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson not on injury report    Fri Sep 23, 10:06 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and was not listed on the injury report for Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: The 49ers gave up a huge game to Cam Newton last week. If Wilson is more mobile and able to drive his throws than what we saw last week, he might return to his QB1 ways this week.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin set to play    Fri Sep 23, 09:47 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and he was not listed on the injury report for Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Baldwin had an MRI earlier this week, but it's obvious that everything is good to go now that we are entering the weekend. The 49ers defense was not impressive at Carolina last week and a healthier Russell Wilson should be in position to take advantage of it. Baldwin is a solid WR3/Flex this week.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett listed as questionable    Fri Sep 23, 09:39 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Lockett is a boom/bust WR3/Flex at best this week, but his ability to get free for a long gain after getting injured last week should give you some confidence if you have to turn to him this week. Russell Wilson is getting healthier and the 49ers matchup is a good one, so Lockett could carry over that momentum from the last drive in the loss to the Rams last week.

  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu limited    Fri Sep 23, 08:54 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 24.

Footballguys view: Sanu should be fine for Monday night in one of the highest projected scoring games of the week. The Saints inexperience in the secondary and lack of pass rush should give the Falcons passing game a great chance to keep up their torrid early season pace.

  Falcons | Julio Jones sits again    Fri Sep 23, 08:50 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Footballguys view: The Falcons have reassured us that this injury is not serious and that Jones will play Monday night against the Saints. He has played and produced well through minor leg injuries in the past, so as long as he's active, Jones has to be considered an elite WR1 this week.

  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph on track to play    Fri Sep 23, 08:17 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Rudolph is a strong play this week after a good start to the season and excellent execution in the red zone with Sam Bradford last week. The Panthers should have given up a score to a wide open Virgil Green in Week 1 and Vance McDonald ran away from their defense for a long score last week.
