  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.

Footballguys view: We doubt he misses the game against the Broncos on Sunday. The back issue could limit him in practice, so be sure to monitor the practice report on Friday.

  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.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited Wednesday    Wed Sep 17, 06:40 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Yep. This is what we'll see from Gronk--likely for the rest of the year. He's been limited in practice all year long, but he's playing on Sunday and that's all that matters for fantasy owners.

  Patriots | Shane Vereen doesn't do all drills    Wed Sep 17, 06:36 PM

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (shoulder) has been added to this week's injury report, and he was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

  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.

  Texans | Andre Johnson a full participant    Wed Sep 17, 05:28 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Even with Ryan Fitzpatrick as his quarterback, we like Johnson as a top-10 fantasy receiver in Week 3. The Texans sit atop the AFC South at 2-0, and they face a cellar-dwelling NFC East New York Giants (0-2) in Week 3.

  Texans | Arian Foster limited Wednesday    Wed Sep 17, 05:20 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: The Texans may mix in Alfred Blue more in the coming weeks in order to keep Foster fresh. At his current pace, he's going to record over 400 carries this year. That's not going to happen, so expect Foster's workload to be shrunk just a bit.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin could return in eight weeks    Wed Sep 17, 05:11 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could return around eight weeks after head coach Jon Gruden said Griffin will be in a cast for the next 10 days. After that, he'll likely spend four to six weeks rehabbing his dislocated left ankle. QB Kirk Cousins will continue to start in place of Griffin in the meantime.

Footballguys view: Awesome...his season isn't over, but does Griffin come back as the starter? Simply put, Cousins is a better fit for the Jay Gruden system and if he performs well he could hang onto the starting job even when Griffin is healthy.

  Broncos | Wes Welker not committing to Week 3    Wed Sep 17, 05:06 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker feels great physically and is ready to return to the team, but he stopped short of committing to playing in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. 'That's a coach's decision,' Welker said. ' ... I'm preparing like I'm going to play.' Welker was back on the practice field Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are being coy when talking about Welker's potential role in Week 3 against the Seahawks. We think he plays, and we think he'll be used on a limited basis. Welker could produce like a "what the heck" flex play with upside if he does play on Sunday.

  Titans | Dexter McCluster expected to improve    Wed Sep 17, 04:57 PM
