  Bills | Sammy Watkins won't play Sunday    Sun Sep 25, 09:38 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will not play in Week 3's game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to a source. WR Marquise Goodwin will start in his place.

Footballguys view: Watkins foot injury is going in the wrong direction and we are only three weeks into the season. The rest could help, but that he needs the rest this early is a terrible sign. If the Bills season goes south, Watkins could be put on the shelf.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery expected to play Sunday    Sun Sep 25, 09:31 AM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Dallas Cowboys, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Jeffery is the type of player that you have to start as long as he is active. Brian Hoyer hasn't played much at all with Jeffery, but it only takes a few bold downfield targets for Jeffery to put up a huge game. Jeffery has played well through injuries in the past.

  Jets | Brandon Marshall likely to be limited    Sun Sep 25, 09:18 AM

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) is expected to be on a snap count for Week 3's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Marshall is more of a boom/bust WR3/Flex but even on limited snaps, he should be for high leverage fantasy situations. Quincy Enunwa might be a better play than Marshall with the starter's involvement limited this week.

  Cowboys | Dez Bryant playing more in the slot    Sun Sep 25, 12:50 AM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was given more snaps in the slot in Week 2, which was part of a conscious effort from head coach Jason Garrett and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan to get Bryant more involved in the offense.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins to play tomorrow?    Sun Sep 25, 12:27 AM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) tweeted he was, 'Ready to go out there and compete at the highest level!' on Saturday, Sept. 24, but the tweet was later deleted.

Footballguys view: It doesn't look like Watkins will go in Week 3. The entire Bills offense is a fade with him on the sidelines.

  Bears | Brian Hoyer concerned about chemistry?    Sat Sep 24, 10:38 PM

Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer has pointed out throughout the week that he has not had many reps with WR Alshon Jeffery this season.

Footballguys view: Jeffery is still the kind of receiver who can adjust on the fly to poor passes and otherwise have his talent reign on the field no matter the circumstances. Hoyer was able to feed DeAndre Hopkins enough to make him an elite fantasy wide receiver, so as long as Jeffery is active tonight, you have to play him.

  Packers | Randall Cobb struggling as runner    Sat Sep 24, 10:24 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb is averaging 3.0 yards per carry this season when used as a running back, but head coach Mike McCarthy said Cobb hasn't had enough carries to make a judgement on the effectiveness of the package.

  Bills | Buffalo hoping Sammy Watkins can play    Sat Sep 24, 05:44 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is still considered questionable for Week 3, but the Bills are holding out hope that he will be able to play. His status will depend on how he feels during pregame warmups.

Footballguys view: Find other options if you have Sammy Watkins on your team. The Bills at least have an early game (1pm ET) against the Cardinals in Buffalo.

  Saints | Willie Snead questionable for Week 3    Sat Sep 24, 04:27 PM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate Snead could be a game-time decision. If he plays against the Falcons on Monday night, we expect Snead to perform like a WR3/flex with upside.

  Lions | Aaron Dobson waived    Sat Sep 24, 04:14 PM

Detroit Lions WR Aaron Dobson was waived Saturday, Sept. 24. The Lions also signed practice squad LB Zaviar Gooden to their active roster.

  Saints | Willie Snead a game-time decision    Sat Sep 24, 03:26 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) said he will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 3 game. He hopes to play but indicated that head coach Sean Payton will decide on his status.

Footballguys view: We are all excited about Snead's upside against the Falcons on Monday night. Get him in the lineup if you can take the chance, but make sure to have an emergency option at the ready just in case. With this injury, it's best to consider Snead a WR3/flex with upside in Week 3.

  Falcons | Saturday injury report for Atlanta    Sat Sep 24, 03:09 PM

Atlanta Falcons LB Paul Worrilow (groin) did not participate in practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and has been ruled out for Week 3. LB Brooks Reed (shoulder) was limited during practice but is not on the injury report. DE Dwight Freeney (non-injury), DT Ra'Shede Hageman (illness), WR Justin Hardy (shoulder), FS Kemal Ishmael (shoulder), DE Tyson Jackson (heel), DT Grady Jarrett (elbow) and SS Keanu Neal (knee) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu practices in full    Sat Sep 24, 03:06 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) fully participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Sanu has WR3/flex value against the Saints on Monday night. We should see a shootout between these two rivals in the Superdome in Week 3.

  Falcons | Julio Jones listed as questionable    Sat Sep 24, 03:05 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Jones should play on Monday night against the Saints. He's his usual WR1 anytime he's on the field -- and especially this week against a weak Saints defense.

  Eagles | Bigger role ahead for DGB?    Sat Sep 24, 02:34 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham is a candidate to see his role expanded, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Dynasty owners should be watching the big target. Green-Beckham has always had the physical potential to be a top-15 WR in the game. He's far from producing at that level, but his natural talent should have all fantasy owners intrigued.

  Falcons | Atlanta won't force the ball to Julio Jones    Sat Sep 24, 01:04 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones only has 13 targets through two games this season after recording 204 last year, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan doesn't appear interested in changing that approach anytime soon.

Footballguys view: Six Falcons have four or more receptions through the first two games, while TE Jacob Tamme has two more catches and three more targets than Jones. Jones is still a WR1 for fantasy owners.

  Steelers | Markus Wheaton will share snaps    Sat Sep 24, 12:16 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) is set to return from a sprained right shoulder in Week 3 versus the Philadelphia Eagles, but he will do so in a timeshare with Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Footballguys view: Wheaton was on track to return last week, but the team decided to give him some more rest. In his first action this season, we can't yet trust Wheaton -- even as a what the heck flex. The split between these three WRs (Wheaton, Coates, Heyward-Bey) will negatively impact their fantasy value.

  Falcons | Julio Jones expected to play    Sat Sep 24, 10:22 AM

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said WR Julio Jones (calf) is expected to be available for Week 3's game against the New Orleans Saints, even though he missed practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Footballguys view: The Falcons play the Saints on Monday night. Jones should be ready to go by that time with an extra day of rest. Set him in your lineup as a WR1 (as per usual) in Week 3.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper stretching the field    Sat Sep 24, 12:32 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper is averaging 18.9 yards per catch this season, which ranks second among players with at least 10 receptions.

Footballguys view: The Raiders defense looks soft as butter after two weeks. This puts more on the team's passing game (and Cooper) to do more to stay in games. That's great news for Cooper's fantasy owners. He's a WR1 in Week 3 against the Titans.

  Texans | Braxton Miller to return soon    Fri Sep 23, 10:33 PM

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) isn't expected to miss much time with a hamstring injury, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin set to play    Fri Sep 23, 09:47 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and he was not listed on the injury report for Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Baldwin had an MRI earlier this week, but it's obvious that everything is good to go now that we are entering the weekend. The 49ers defense was not impressive at Carolina last week and a healthier Russell Wilson should be in position to take advantage of it. Baldwin is a solid WR3/Flex this week.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett listed as questionable    Fri Sep 23, 09:39 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Lockett is a boom/bust WR3/Flex at best this week, but his ability to get free for a long gain after getting injured last week should give you some confidence if you have to turn to him this week. Russell Wilson is getting healthier and the 49ers matchup is a good one, so Lockett could carry over that momentum from the last drive in the loss to the Rams last week.

  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu limited    Fri Sep 23, 08:54 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 24.

Footballguys view: Sanu should be fine for Monday night in one of the highest projected scoring games of the week. The Saints inexperience in the secondary and lack of pass rush should give the Falcons passing game a great chance to keep up their torrid early season pace.

  Falcons | Julio Jones sits again    Fri Sep 23, 08:50 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Footballguys view: The Falcons have reassured us that this injury is not serious and that Jones will play Monday night against the Saints. He has played and produced well through minor leg injuries in the past, so as long as he's active, Jones has to be considered an elite WR1 this week.

  Titans | Kendall Wright's status in question    Fri Sep 23, 08:36 PM

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs not on injury report    Fri Sep 23, 08:10 PM

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) is not on the injury report for Week 3 even though he missed practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Footballguys view: This backs up the coaches story that this was merely precautionary. Fire up Diggs as a solid WR1 against the Panthers inexperienced corners this week.

Stefon Diggs player page


  Buccaneers | Friday injury report for Bucs    Fri Sep 23, 07:57 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Robert Ayers (ankle), TE Luke Stocker (ankle), RB Doug Martin (hamstring) and WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) have been ruled out for Week 3. OT Donovan Smith (hip), S Ryan Smith (hand) and LB Lavonte David (shoulder) are listed as questionable. Ayers, Martin, Shorts and Stocker did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23. Donovan Smith, Ryan Smith and David fully participated in practice.

Footballguys view: Charles Sims will get the start for Martin, and he is in line for feature back touches with only Jacquizz Rodgers to share touches. Sims is a great receiver out of the backfield, so he's a stronger play in PPR leagues, but an RB2 for Week 3 in every format, despite the tough matchup against the Rams.

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Thomas's hip issue did not seem to materially affect him in Week 2. He said he has been dealing with it for years, so we won't ding him in projections while he's playing through the injury. That he is not on the injury report is a terrific sign for his season-long outlook with this injury.

Mathis, Martin and Rucker did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23, while Bethel and Nkemdiche were limited during practice.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins questionable    Fri Sep 23, 05:50 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Watkins is on the doubtful side of questionable, and he has showed us little reason to trust him in our lineups, especially when he'll see Patrick Peterson if he goes on Sunday. The Bills offense is in bad bad shape without a full speed Watkins.

  Packers | Friday injury report for Green Bay    Fri Sep 23, 05:28 PM

Green Bay Packers CB Sam Shields (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3. SS Morgan Burnett (groin), DT Letroy Guion (knee), DE Datone Jones (knee), OG T.J. Lang (hip) and LB Clay Matthews (ankle, hamstring) are listed as questionable. Shields, Matthews, Jones, Guion and Burnett did not participate in practice, while Lang was limited during practice. FS Chris Banjo (hamstring), LB Jayrone Elliott (hamstring), CB Josh Hawkins (hamstring), CB Micah Hyde (ankle) and WR Jeff Janis (hand) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report. The Packers did not practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

Footballguys view: Shields being out is a boon for Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and Matthew Stafford. The Lions-Packers game could be one of the highest scoring matchups of Week 3.

  Saints | Another missed practice for Willie Snead    Fri Sep 23, 05:09 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was absent from practice for the second straight day on Friday, Sept. 23, possibly creating some doubt for his Week 3 availability versus the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football.

Footballguys view: We will watch the Saturday practice report closely. Snead is not the type of veteran who can play after not practicing all week. The matchup against the Falcons is a very good one, but rookie Michael Thomas might end up being the receiver who can take most advantage of it if Snead can't go.
