  Bengals | A.J. Green likely to play    Thu Sep 18, 09:45 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) is likely to play in Week 3, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Footballguys view: Great news for fantasy owners....oh and the Bengals of course. Green is currently rated as our No. 9 WR for the week but make sure you temper your expectations. Dalton will still force the ball to Green--how can you not?--and ultimately half a Green is still better than most receivers. But he's not going to get back to that Week 1 131 yard total this week.

  Jets | Eric Decker encouraged    Thu Sep 18, 09:31 AM

Updating previous reports, New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) was encouraged that he was able to do some jogging in the rehab area of the practice field Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Decker has been rehabbing a lot over the last few days and the Jets are hopeful to have him against the Chicago Bears. The offense clearly missed Decker when he went out against the Green Bay Packers, so his presence would be huge. That said, we currently have him as a WR4 and if you do want to start him, make sure you have an option on the Jets or Bears since he could be deactivated Monday, after all your other options are gone.

  Buccaneers | Tampa to use RB committee    Thu Sep 18, 09:20 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) and RB Bobby Rainey are expected to split carries in Week 3 and in the near future.

Footballguys view: This will negate some of both running back's production. This wek Martin is a mid-range RB3 while Rainey is just a little behind him. Both are OK starts but are limited because of the split.

  Giants | Victor Cruz having drops issue    Thu Sep 18, 08:39 AM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz had three drops in Week 2 after demanding to see the ball more before the game. He vowed to get better moving forward.

Footballguys view: This was one of the worst case scenarios coming into the season - the one guy who was always reliable becoming unreliable. He should still get targets (especially with Rueben Randle on injured reserve)but his production is being hampered by his strange inability to hold onto the ball. We've got him as a WR3 this week against the Houston Texans, in part due to the drops and in part due to the pressure Eli Manning will be feeling in the pocket. The timing for the offense is already a mess and the pass-rush won't help.

  Dolphins | Lamar Miller not on injury report    Thu Sep 18, 12:32 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) was not on the team's injury report Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Kansas City is reeling and Lamar Miller will get the first crack at the starting job since Knowshon Moreno is out for the next 4-8 weeks. Miller is a solid RB2 against the Chiefs with the upside for more.

  Giants | Seek exemption for Eric Herman    Wed Sep 17, 11:08 PM

New York Giants OL Eric Herman is eligible to return to the team after having his four-game suspension for violation of the drug policy voided. The team has applied for a roster exemption for Herman, giving them a week to decide how to handle the roster spot. The team would have to cut a player to open a spot for Herman, or, if they want to place him on the practice squad, they must waive him and hope he is not picked up by another team.

Footballguys view: The Giants are desperate for Oline help but won't throw Herman in there if he's not ready and risk getting Herman--or more critically, Eli Manning--hurt.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard leads explosive duo    Wed Sep 17, 11:07 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard is on pace for 328 carries, while rookie RB Jeremy Hill is ticketed for 152 for a total of 480. That would be the most by two Bengals backs in a single season, shattering the previous record of 405, set in 2000. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson isn't estimating how many carries each will get on a given day, and said Wednesday, Sept. 17, that is varies from series to series. He calls plays on the sidelines rather than up in the booth so he can sense the ebb and flow of the game. 'It's the way things unfold. But Gio is the starting tailback on this football team. So at the end of the day, he's going to get some chances that maybe everybody else doesn't get until he proves he can't or the other guy proves that he's better,' Jackson said.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill finding stride    Wed Sep 17, 11:05 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is on pace for a total of 152 carries, while RB Giovani Bernard is on pace for 328 carries. The most runs in franchise history by two backs is 405, set in 2000. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson isn't outing any particular numbers out there for carries, and said it goes from series to series who will see the ball. He said that is why he calls plays from the sidelines, so he can sense the ebb and flow of the game.

  NFL | BenJarvus Green-Ellis drawing interest    Wed Sep 17, 08:00 PM

Several clubs have reportedly reached out to free-agent RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (Bengals), who is still in the process of rehab after suffering a hip injury in the preseason.

Footballguys view: It's after Week 1 of the regular season, so teams won't have to guarantee Green-Ellis' salary for the rest of the year. With all the RB injuries around the league, we could see someone take a shot on the veteran back.

  Cardinals | Jonathan Dwyer deactivated    Wed Sep 17, 07:58 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Jonathan Dwyer has been deactivated from all team activities Wednesday, Sept. 17. The team was made aware of allegations by the Phoenix police and are cooperating fully with authorities.

Footballguys view: The team plans to closely monitor the situation as it develops and evaluate additional information as it becomes available. Without Dwyer, the Cardinals will turn to Stepfan Taylor as the primary backup behind Andre Ellington.

  Cardinals | Drew Stanton in line to start for Cards    Wed Sep 17, 07:51 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton is in line to start his second straight game against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3 with QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) sidelined. "It hasn't changed today," head coach Bruce Arians said. "We'll be status quo with Drew as the starter, Logan as the backup and we'll still be waiting on Carson."

Footballguys view: Stanton has plenty of experience in the Arians offense dating back to their days together with the Colts. Against the 49ers, we see Stanton as a low-end QB2. He certainly had zero issue forcing the ball to Larry Fitzgerald in Week 2.

  Seahawks | No practice for Marshawn Lynch    Wed Sep 17, 07:40 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

  49ers | No practice for Vernon Davis    Wed Sep 17, 07:38 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and he is still on crutches.

Footballguys view: Still on crutches means he's at least questionable for the game in Week 3. Fantasy owners should make different plans in case he can't play.

  Rams | Limited practice for Shaun Hill    Wed Sep 17, 05:35 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Hill may not be able to play again this week. If not, then the team will continue to feature Austin Davis as their starter. Davis plays within the offense, but he doesn't exactly fill the air with footballs. This limits the fantasy value of those in the Rams passing game.
