  Titans | Kendall Wright has full practice    Wed Sep 28, 05:42 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Wright should be back for the Titans this week, but we can't see that making a world of difference. Keep him on your bench (must be in a super deep league) or on your waiver wire (standard-sized league).

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 26, and is listed as doubtful for Week 4.

Footballguys view: He's getting close, but you'll have to wait another week. The Bengals have a short week as they play against the Dolphins on Thursday night.

  Titans | Tajae Sharpe limited at practice    Wed Sep 28, 05:35 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Sharpe has plenty of talent, but he's been hyped up quite a bit in fantasy circles with little payoff. He had seven catches in Week 1, but Sharpe has only had 7 catches combined over the last two weeks. We hold onto him, but don't trust him as anything more than a mid-range WR4 or 'what the heck' flex in Week 4.

  Titans | Delanie Walker does not practice    Wed Sep 28, 05:18 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: There's some waiver wire help (Jack Doyle, etc) to help you if you're a Walker owner. Check back Friday as we'll know more about his availability then.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson not on the field    Wed Sep 28, 05:17 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle, knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: It could just be a day off on Wednesday for the seasoned veteran. We like him as a WR3 with upside against the Browns in Week 4.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson misses practice    Wed Sep 28, 05:10 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: We still appreciate Doctson's talent in dynasty formats, but all re-draft owners should drop him for better options on the waiver wire.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Check back on Friday to see what Hilton's status is like. We've got him as a WR1 with the upside to be a top-5 fantasy play in Week 4 against the Jaguars.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited in practice    Wed Sep 28, 04:37 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: There were no setbacks for Gronkowski after playing in Week 3 against the Texans. He should be good to go -- and a TE1 for fantasy players -- in Week 4 against the Bills.

  Patriots | Jacoby Brissett limited in practice    Wed Sep 28, 04:30 PM

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan takes part in practice    Wed Sep 28, 04:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: The thumb injury is not a big deal, and the Falcons need Ryan in a big way in Week 4. They get a huge test on the road against the Carolina Panthers this week. Ryan is a low-end QB1 in this matchup.

Matt Ryan player page


  Falcons | Julio Jones listed as limited    Wed Sep 28, 04:25 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Jones just didn't look right against the Saints on Monday night. This week, consider Jones more of a low-end WR1 until we see him look like his old self. He'll be facing an inexperienced secondary against the Panthers on Sunday.

Julio Jones player page


  Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo limited at practice    Wed Sep 28, 04:24 PM

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that Garoppolo has limited motion in his shoulder and he's still bothered by the pain. It's early, but it seems like Garoppolo is going to miss the game against the Bills on Sunday. If that's the case, rookie Jacoby Brissett would get his second consecutive start for the Patriots.

  Patriots | Wednesday practice report    Wed Sep 28, 04:23 PM

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman limited Wednesday    Wed Sep 28, 04:22 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Coleman was a beast for his fantasy owners in Week 3 as he scored three TDs versus the Saints. It's a much tougher opponent this week as the Falcons travel to take on the Panthers. Consider Coleman (and his backfield mate Devonta Freeman) both low-end RB2 with upside.

  Jaguars | Chris Ivory limited in practice    Wed Sep 28, 04:05 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (ankle, knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Ivory was banged up in his first game back last week on only 32 snaps. He's someone fantasy owners can drop for better options on the waiver wire. You could even get a better 'lottery ticket' back like Kenneth Dixon instead of carrying Ivory.

  Jaguars | No practice for Julius Thomas     Wed Sep 28, 03:49 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (elbow) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Thomas should be fine -- even though he's banged up....AGAIN. Consider him a low-end TE1 this week against the Colts.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson will practice    Wed Sep 28, 03:49 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle, knee) will participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and is on track to play in Week 4, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: Wilson may play in Week 4, but other options -- even waiver wire guys like Trevor Siemian (Broncos) -- could be better fantasy starters in Week 4. Since he's banged up, consider Wilson a high-end QB2 for fantasy on the road against the Jets this week.

  Bears | Wednesday injury report for Bears    Wed Sep 28, 03:42 PM

Chicago Bears RB Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring), DT Eddie Goldman (ankle), SS Harold Jones-Quartey (concussion), RB Jeremy Langford (ankle) and LB Danny Trevathan (thumb) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) aggravated his shoulder injury during the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Sept. 25, and he will likely undergo an MRI exam, according to head coach Todd Bowels.

Footballguys view: Decker missed practice on Wednesday, so make sure to check back on Friday if you plan on (or want to) starting him.

  Cowboys | Dez Bryant has hairline fracture    Wed Sep 28, 02:50 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) has a hairline fracture in his knee, but head coach Jason Garrett hopes Bryant will be able to play against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to find another option if possible just in case Bryant can't play. Bryant is considered day-to-day at this point. If he's out against the 49ers, then the team would turn to WR Cole Beasley and TE Jason Witten to do the heavy lifting in the passing game. WR Terrance Williams would also be likely to be more involved without Bryant.

  Panthers | Vernon Butler injury update    Wed Sep 28, 02:45 PM

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers DT Vernon Butler (ankle) said he expects to miss two to three weeks because of his high ankle sprain. He is currently in a walking boot because of the injury.

  49ers | Torrey Smith should be fine    Wed Sep 28, 02:36 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (ankle) suffered an apparent ankle injury during the team's Week 3 game, but head coach Chip Kelly said Smith will be fine.

Footballguys view: Smith will be fine, but fantasy owners aren't going to trust Smith in the lineup. He's a WR4 at best this week against the Cowboys.

Torrey Smith player page


  49ers | Vance McDonald may miss time    Wed Sep 28, 02:31 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald's (hip) status for Week 4 is uncertain because of a hip injury he suffered in Week 3. Head coach Chip Kelly said McDonald is not dealing with a long-term injury, but his status will not be known until later in the week.

Footballguys view: Garrett Celek and Blake Bell are the two behind McDonald on the depth chart. Bell, a converted QB from Oklahoma who has only played one year at TE, has the athleticism to make plays after the catch. Celek may get first crack at the starting job, but Bell is the player we'd be more excited about...but only in deep dynasty leagues.

  49ers | Keshawn Martin may be returner    Wed Sep 28, 02:28 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Keshawn Martin is expected to be used as a kick and punt returner.

Footballguys view: That's why the team signed him. He'll do little to nothing as a receiver and Martin has no fantasy value.

  49ers | Garrett Celek limited at practice    Wed Sep 28, 02:24 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE Garrett Celek (undisclosed) is wearing a no-contact jersey during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28. Celek received a big hit during the team's Week 3 game.

Houston Texans OT Duane Brown (quadriceps) will be doing more during practice this week in hopes of being able to play in Week 4, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien said he expects Brown to play in Week 5 if he is not able to play in Week 4.

  Patriots | Dont'a Hightower making progress    Wed Sep 28, 02:11 PM

New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower (knee) is making progress in his recovery from a knee injury but his status for Week 4 is uncertain at this point, according to a source. He has been participating in practice since last week.

  Patriots | Jacoby Brissett on the field    Wed Sep 28, 02:08 PM

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) was throwing passes during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and did not appear to be bothered by his thumb injury.

Footballguys view: With Jimmy Garoppolo banged up, Brissett could start again this week. The rookie ran a limited number of plays last week against the Texans, but he led the team to a big win. If he starts against the Bills, consider him a QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Jacoby Brissett player page


  Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo throwing Wednesday    Wed Sep 28, 02:06 PM

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) was able to throw some passes during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and also worked on pocket mobility. He did not favor his shoulder during stretching or when he threw the ball.

Footballguys view: Garoppolo is experiencing limited motion and soreness in his injured shoulder according to reports. At this time, we'd say it looks like rookie Jacoby Brissett is going to start on Sunday against the Bills.
