  Dolphins | Arian Foster doubtful for Week 4    Mon Sep 26, 11:08 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) won't be rushed back, according to head coach Adam Gase, which casts him as doubtful for Week 4 Thursday, Sept. 29.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins will continue to move forward with a RBBC featuring Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake, Isaiah Pead and Damien Williams. As you saw in Week 3, this situation is a bit of a mess for fantasy owners. Avoid if you can.

  Dolphins | Jordan Cameron out for Week 4    Mon Sep 26, 11:06 AM

Miami Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) will be out for Week 4 due to a concussion.

Footballguys view: Cameron will be in the concussion protocol, and his return date is yet to be determined. Without him, the Dolphins will use more of Dion Sims.

  Raiders | Marcel Reece due back in Week 4    Mon Sep 26, 10:33 AM

Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece will be eligible to return in Week 4 from a four-game suspension stemming from last season.

Footballguys view: Reece is a weapon for the Raiders offense as he can be used effectively as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. The Raiders are already splitting time in the backfield between starter Latavius Murray and rookies DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard. Adding Reece to the mix may take a few touches away in that rotation.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell back in action    Mon Sep 26, 10:19 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will return from his three-game suspension in Week 4.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Steelers here. Getting Bell back will help a lethargic offense that failed to score a TD in Week 3 against the Eagles. Bell will lead the way on the ground, but he's also a fantastic receiver out of the backfield. It will be interesting to see the role of DeAngelo Williams now that Bell is back.

  Panthers | Cam Newton twists ankle    Mon Sep 26, 08:48 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) twisted his ankle in Week 3, but he's in the facility Monday, Sept. 26, and feels fine.

Footballguys view: Newton has been taking a beating this year, and the Panthers need to do a better job of protecting their star QB. He's a big, physical player himself but the human body is only designed to take so much punishment. The Panthers dropped the game against the Vikings, but should have an easier time with the Falcons in Week 4.

  Lions | Theo Riddick plays starter's snaps    Mon Sep 26, 08:28 AM

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick played in 45 of the 68 offensive snaps in Week 3. RB Dwayne Washington played in 25 snaps.

Footballguys view: As expected, without Ameer Abdullah most of the backfield work was going to go to Riddick. He's still a RB3/flex option in PPR leagues but he doesn't excite as a runner. We'll see if rookie Dwayne Washington mixes in a bit more going forward..at least when the team wants to run the ball.

  Cowboys | Dez Bryant to have MRI    Mon Sep 26, 08:26 AM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) will undergo an MRI on his knee Monday, Sept. 26, after initial X-rays revealed a sprained knee.

Footballguys view: It's a situation that needs to be monitored by fantasy owners. Bryant's status going forward should be revealed when we know more about the extent of the knee sprain. Stay tuned.

  Eagles | Ryan Mathews absent down stretch    Mon Sep 26, 01:13 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) carried just twice for minus-5 yards in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Head coach Doug Pederson did not have information on Mathews' status after the game, but said he would have an update Monday, Sept. 26.

Footballguys view: Mathews has been bothered by this ankle injury, but he has not missed time despite having an ankle heavily taped. Get on your waiver wire to see if you can add Kenjon Barner or Wendell Smallwood.

  Bears | Jeremy Langford carted off    Sun Sep 25, 10:11 PM

Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford (Achilles') was carted off to the locker room in the third quarter of the Week 3 game against the Dallas Cowboys due to a possible Achilles' injury.

Footballguys view: Jordan Howard was more impressive than Langford before he went out, so this could just accelerate a changing of the guard in the Chicago backfield. Next week he'll face the Detroit defense that gave up a 100-yard game to Eddie Lacy today.

Footballguys view: Landry was able to get free downfield twice, once for a score and another time to set up the game-winning score in overtime. He predictably had a great game against the Browns without Joe Haden. Next week, he'll be at least a solid WR3/Flex against the Bengals.
