  Dolphins | Arian Foster will not play    Wed Sep 28, 05:52 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 4.

Footballguys view: Without Foster, the team will continue to feature a three- and four-headed backfield. Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake, Isaiah Pead and even Damien Williams could see playing time with Foster down.

  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.

  Panthers | Jonathan Stewart out of practice    Wed Sep 28, 12:36 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) is out of practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Cameron Artis-Payne should start for the Panthers again this week. The rookie is worth considering as a RB3/flex play in Week 4 against the Falcons.

  Ravens | Kenneth Dixon suited up    Wed Sep 28, 11:32 AM

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) was working off to the side in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: Dixon should be a preemptive pickup for all fantasy owners. He needs to get into shape, but he could emerge as the primary back in the Ravens backfield. Add him now and stash him. Dixon may not play this week against the Raiders but he's close.

  Jaguars | Chris Ivory banged up in Week 3    Wed Sep 28, 01:10 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (knee, ankle) suffered a sprained knee and ankle during the team's Week 3 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He played through the injuries, however, and was able to finish the game.

Footballguys view: Ivory was an interesting late-round pick in your fantasy draft, and there's a ton of you who have already moved on. The Jaguars defense isn't going to keep them in many games, so their rushing attack featuring T.J. Yeldon (and Ivory) won't get fed as much as hoped. The RB position may be thin on the waiver wire i your league, but Ivory isn't a must hold for fantasy owners. See if you can upgrade.

  Bills | Reggie Bush could be released    Tue Sep 27, 11:45 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Reggie Bush's spot on the roster could be in trouble, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak. Bush was active but did not play in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Stay tuned here as the primary backup to LeSean McCoy could end up being Mike Gillislee. The Bills will need to clear room after Week 4 when both DT Marcell Dareus and OT Seantrel Henderson return from suspension.

  Falcons | Atlanta RBs snap distribution    Tue Sep 27, 11:24 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman was on the field for 38 of the team's 64 offensive snaps in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints. RB Tevin Coleman logged 27 snaps.

Footballguys view: The snaps are going to continue getting split almost down the middle for these two. Coleman got into the end zone three times against a weak Saints defense on Monday night. Perhaps next time out it will be Freeman as the most fantasy relevant back of the two. It's a split fantasy owners will have to navigate carefully with both backs cutting into the others value. They're both low-end RB2 with upside, but the potential for a RB1 week is always there for one of them.

  Cardinals | David Johnson is an every-down back    Tue Sep 27, 11:13 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson played 79 of a possible 82 snaps against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3. RBs Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington logged just three and one, respectively.

Footballguys view: Any concern about Johnson splitting time in the backfield has been squashed this year. David Johnson is a star player, and he's the centerpiece of the Cardinals offense. While they are struggling in the passing game at times, Johnson is solid on the ground. He's also one of the best receivers out of the backfield in the league. There is no doubt that Johnson is a set-it-and-forget-it starter each week for fantasy owners.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell in good condition    Tue Sep 27, 09:00 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's conditioning isn't a concern to head coach Mike Tomlin. 'We have seen him every day, he has been a part of us, and he has been in the building,' Tomlin said. 'He is up to speed on what we are doing from a schematic standpoint and really in tune there.'

Footballguys view: Good news for the star back here. The Steelers offense needs more punch, and Bell should be able to provide that. He's in good shape right now, but it will be a couple of weeks before he's in football shape. Bell is a RB1 immediately upon his return this week against the Chiefs. DeAngelo Williams goes back to being the backup. We like Williams as a 'what the heck' flex going forward with Bell in the lineup.

  Seahawks | Zac Brooks re-signs with Seattle    Tue Sep 27, 08:27 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Zac Brooks re-signed to the practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 27.

Footballguys view: Brooks was drafted by the team in the seventh round out of Clemson this year. He was cut during training camp, and now he's back with the team. Brooks is an all-purpose developmental RB who we will be monitoring in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Giants | Shane Vereen goes to IR    Tue Sep 27, 04:37 PM

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 27.

  Bears | Chicago signing Joique Bell    Tue Sep 27, 02:30 PM

Free-agent RB Joique Bell (Lions) is signing an undisclosed deal with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, Sept. 27.

Footballguys view: With Jeremy Langford (ankle) down, the Bears had to add another body at the RB position. We should see rookie Jordan Howard as the team's lead back, but Bell gives them veteran depth. In fact, Kadeem Carey (hamstring) is also banged up so we could see Bell as the primary backup to Howard this week.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell to be featured upon return    Tue Sep 27, 01:05 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell can expect to see a heavy workload in his season debut in Week 4 versus the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: In other obvious news -- water is wet. Fantasy owners have been waiting patiently for Bell to return from his three-game suspension, and this week they get to see him in action. He's a plug-and-play RB1 in Week 4.

  Giants | Paul Perkins ready for bigger role    Tue Sep 27, 12:29 PM

New York Giants RB Paul Perkins is among the candidates who will be asked to fill the void left behind by the absence of Shane Vereen (triceps) after the team's leading rusher suffered a triceps injury in Week 3 that is expected to sideline him at least two months. Head coach Ben McAdoo stated a committee will replace Vereen and that Perkins is 'ready to step up'.

Footballguys view: Bobby Rainey should get first crack at the Shane Vereen role in the Giants backfield behind starter Rashad Jennings. However, Perkins is a player who cannot be forgotten about. At UCLA, Perkins drew a lot of comparisons to Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) because of his speed and ability to break off field-flipping plays. Watch to see if Perkins can do more with his opportunity now that Vereen is hurt.

  Lions | Dwayne Washington emerging into timeshare    Tue Sep 27, 09:29 AM

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington has emerged into a timeshare with RB Theo Riddick, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Footballguys view: Washington is the larger back, and he could get a larger workload when the team needs to run between the tackles. Riddick is a great receiver, but he struggles when asked to run inside. Perhaps Washington could do enough to consider him a deep flex for fantasy owners.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise to return in Week 4    Mon Sep 26, 10:06 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (wrist) will return to action in Week 4 against the New York Jets, head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Sept. 26. He has missed the past two games due to a cracked bone in his hand.

Footballguys view: Prosise (a converted WR) is a good receiving option and change-of-pace back behind starter Christine Michael. His fantasy value is low unless something happens to Michael.

  Bears | John Fox believes in Jordan Howard    Mon Sep 26, 09:56 PM

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard might be in line to shoulder the load with RB Jeremy Langford (ankle) sidelined, and head coach John Fox said it would not be impossible. 'I think there's guys in the league that do,' Fox said. 'Remember, Jordan is a rookie that we've seen for three real NFL football games. So we'll kind of evaluate as we move forward.'

Footballguys view: It must be difficult for Fox to admit that. He's known as a coach who doesn't really trust rookies. He's forced to trust Howard with Jeremy Langford down for a few weeks. Howard is a powerful runner who can wear down a defense as the game goes on. Consider him a low-end RB2 while Langford is out.

  Bears | Jeremy Langford out a few weeks    Mon Sep 26, 07:42 PM

Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford (ankle) will miss four to six weeks with an ankle sprain, according to a source.

Footballguys view: With Langford out, the team turns to rookie Jordan Howard as their lead back. Howard is a big back with good instincts for running the ball. Consider Howard a low-end RB2 while he's the starter for the Bears.
