  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.

  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.

  Falcons | Julio Jones probable for Week 3    Wed Sep 17, 02:06 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) practiced for the second straight day Wednesday, Sept. 17, and is probable for Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Falcons here. Jones is good to go for Sunday as the Falcons return home to face the Bucs. We like Julio as a top-5 fantasy receiver in Week 3.

  Cowboys | Dez Bryant not practicing    Wed Sep 17, 01:51 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (shoulder) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, but is catching passes and running sprints on the side.

Footballguys view: Bryant was a little bit banged up in Week 2, but he returned to the game and produced for his fantasy owners. This is likely just a day of rest.

  Falcons | Roddy White could play despite practicing    Wed Sep 17, 01:43 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) doesn't need to practice at all this week in order to play in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Footballguys view: White is a seasoned veteran who doesn't need every rep in practice to play on Sunday. It's looking like White will be a game time decision for the game against the Bucs in Week 3.

  Giants | Odell Beckham unlikely to play in Week 3    Wed Sep 17, 01:40 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is unlikely to play in Week 3 against the Houston Texans. Head coach Tom Coughlin was non-committal when asked if Beckham would play.

Footballguys view: Of course he's unlikely to play in Week 3. We love (LOVE) Beckham's natural talent, but this hamstring injury has crushed his potential as a rookie so far. Buy low in dynasty leagues if you can. Dump him if you were hanging onto him in redraft leagues.

  Redskins | McCoy: DeSean Jackson will play    Wed Sep 17, 01:28 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles, his former team, according to Eagles RB LeSean McCoy. "He's playing," McCoy said. "He said he's definitely playing. That's the first thing he texted, he said 'I'm playing.'"

Footballguys view: Jackson's playing status is unknown because of this shoulder injury. Playing against his old team, Jackson would love nothing more than to single-handedly beat Philadelphia. We'll see if he can play through the pain if he's cleared to go this week.

St. Louis Rams WR Stedman Bailey is expected to practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and play Week 3 after having his four-game suspension lifted. Bailey's role may be limited during the game.

Footballguys view: We'll see how much (if at all) Bailey cuts into the targets for Brian Quick. We've finally seen Quick begin to play up to his potential, and we like him as a flex play in Week 3.

  Bengals | A.J. Green to miss practice    Wed Sep 17, 12:13 PM

  Broncos | Wes Welker reinstated    Wed Sep 17, 10:46 AM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker has been reinstated Wednesday, Sept. 17, after a new drug testing agreement was reached.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Broncos here. Expect the team to take a "less is more" approach with Welker. They should still give him high-value targets when the team is near the red zone, but he may not get double digit targets like he did in 10 of the 13 games he played in 2013. Welker is a threat in the red zone, but we can only recommend him as a "what the heck" flex play in Week 3 against Seattle.

  Browns | Josh Gordon's ban cut to 10 games    Tue Sep 16, 09:18 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon had his season-long suspension officially cut to 10 games Tuesday, Sept. 16. He could also avoid serving the mandatory two-game suspension for his DWI because he pled guilty to his drunken-driving charge early Tuesday before an agreement on the new-drug testing policy was reached, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Now just stay out of trouble Gordon! Nobody questions his talent, but Gordon has had a long history of substance abuse violations dating back to his days in college at Baylor. He's eligible to return in Week 12.

  Bears | Two waived    Tue Sep 16, 06:17 PM

The Chicago Bears placed RB Shaun Draughn and WR Chris X. Williams on no-recall waivers Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: The move to get rid of Draughn is a bit surprising. He looked better than rookie Kadeem Carey in the preseason, but now he's without a team. Carey is now clearly the handcuff for Matt Forte.

Shaun Draughn player page


  Packers | Aaron Rodgers keeping Jordy Nelson busy    Tue Sep 16, 06:14 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has targeted WR Jordy Nelson 30 times in two games so far this year. Rodgers has never targeted one of his wideouts more than 8.3 times per game in a season.

Footballguys view: Keep it up Rodgers! That's what Nelson's fantasy owners are saying. The two have a great connection, so the number of targets should not be overly alarming.

  Giants | Preston Parker to get more snaps?    Tue Sep 16, 06:01 PM

  Giants | Two promoted from PS    Tue Sep 16, 05:57 PM

New York Giants WR Julian Talley and LB Dan Fox were promoted to the team's active roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 16, filling the spots left by WR Jerrel Jernigan and CB Walter Thurmond, who were both placed on Reserve/Injured.

Footballguys view: With Jernigan out for the year, the Giants turn to Talley to take his spot. They've got the market cornered on UMASS wide receivers (Victor Cruz is the other one), and Talley is speedy in the open field. He can give them decent depth at wide receiver, but he's not the threat as a receiver that Jernigan was. Talley can also be used as a return man.
