  • Player Notes
    Rashard Higgins Sep 18 12:20pm ET

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins (knee) returned to limited practice on Wednesday. Higgins' knee injury prevented him from playing in his team's Week 2 win over the New York Jets. The receiver's ability to return on Wednesday, even on a limited basis, bodes well for his availability for Cleveland's Week 3 showdown against the Los Angeles Rams. Look for Higgins to slot back into his role as the team's No. 3 wide receiver.

    Cam Newton Sep 18 12:20pm ET

    Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (foot) is not practicing on Wednesday. Newton aggravated the foot injury he suffered in the preseason and is looking questionable for Week 3 against the Cardinals. Consider him more of a QB2 this week with his status up in the air. If he's forced to sit, Kyle Allen would take snaps under center in Arizona, making all of Carolina's pass-catchers less attractive in fantasy. The Panthers would likely feed running back Christian McCaffrey even more.

    James Conner Sep 18 12:20pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (knee) isn't sure if he'll practice on Wednesday, but he said based on how his knee feels he'll be good to go for Week 3 against the 49ers on the road. With Conner potentially being less than 100 percent this weekend, we could see backup Jaylen Samuels get a little more run. Conner's ceiling is lowered because of the injury and the fact that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) is out for the year. Consider the running back a low-end RB2/high-end RB3/flex this Sunday if he plays.

    Dallas Goedert Sep 18 12:10pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said that wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin) and tight end Dallas Goedert (calf) are all day-to-day. There's a possibility that both Jeffery and Jackson miss both Weeks 3 and 4, as the Eagles play on a short week next Thursday. Continue to keep an eye on their day-to-day practice status, but it'd be smart to plan around them this Sunday against the Lions. Nelson Agholor, Mack Hollins and rookie JJ Arcega-Whiteside would function in three-wide sets if both Jeffery and Jackson were out this weekend. Even if Goedert plays against Detroit, he's not much of a fantasy option with Zach Ertz ahead of him.

    Dontrell Hilliard Sep 18 12:10pm ET

    Cleveland Browns running back Dontrell Hilliard (concussion) has cleared the league's concussion protocol and returned to practice on Wednesday. Hilliard was injured during his team's Week 1 loss to the Tennessee Titans and was not able to play in Week 2. He is expected to return to the passing down role in the Cleveland offense, although he may have to split touches with D'Ernest Johnson, who filled in well while Hilliard was out. Neither amounts to much more than a handcuff to Nick Chubb in fantasy leagues.

    Sterling Shepard Sep 18 12:00pm ET

    New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard continues to work his way back from a concussion he suffered in Week 1. He was on the field at practice Wednesday but was in a non-contact jersey, which suggests he has still not reached the final step in the league's concussion policy. His presence would be a boost to rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, but we need to see him practice in full before even thinking about putting him into any fantasy lineups.

    T.J. Jones Sep 18 12:00pm ET

    After being re-signed just before last week's game, New York Giants wide receiver T.J. Jones found himself thrust into the lineup and hauling in a touchdown pass. With Cody Latimer (concussion) not practicing and Sterling Shepard (concussion) still not cleared to play, Jones could have sneaky fantasy value in Week 3. He had established a good rapport with new starting quarterback Daniel Jones in the preseason and has the big-play ability to take advantage of the Bucs defense. Keep an eye on Shepard's status, but if he's unable to go, Jones could be a good option in deep leagues and a great low-cost play in DFS lineups.

    New York Giants Sep 18 12:00pm ET

    The New York Giants Defense will get a good matchup when they face Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Bucs on Sunday. Winston's turnover issues have been well-documented, but the Giants secondary has played so poorly that they can't be trusted to really take advantage of them right now. However, the Giants were able to sack Josh Allen a few times last week, and the Bucs offensive line has been struggling so far this season, so there is a chance that they could put pressure on Winston and create sacks and turnovers. They shouldn't be started in season-long leagues, but if you wanted to punt defense in DFS, they could be an interesting option. You'll just have to hold your breath.

    Saquon Barkley Sep 18 11:50am ET

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley finds himself even more solidified as the face of the Giants franchise after the team's decision to bench quarterback Eli Manning. Although the offense already revolved around Barkley, he will be leaned on even more as a safety blanket for rookie quarterback Daniel Jones. However, the Bucs defense is no longer an easy target. Under new coordinator Todd Bowles, they've allowed only 3.9 yards per carry and just held Christian McCaffrey to 37 yards on 16 carries. Hopefully Jones will include Barkley more in the passing game than Manning had been this year, which would give the second-year back more upside since you still need to run him out there as an RB1 in season-long leagues. But in another tough test for the Giants runner, it would be wise to look elsewhere in DFS.

    From RotoBaller

    Daniel Jones Sep 18 11:50am ET

    The New York Giants will turn to Daniel Jones as their starting quarterback in Week 3. His first test will be against a Tampa Bay Bucs defense that just allowed 333 yards through the air to a banged-up and inaccurate Cam Newton. The Bucs defense has certainly improved this year, but there were many big-play opportunities for Newton and the Panthers last week, which could provide Jones with similar chances at splash plays. Still, with the Giants likely to be run-heavy on Sunday, the team's wide receiver corps banged up and this being Jones' first test not against a backup defense in the preseason, the rookie signal-caller is best left to two-quarterback leagues and ignored in DFS for the time being.

    From RotoBaller

    Evan Engram Sep 18 11:50am ET

    New York Giants tight end Evan Engram is one of the few Giants whose value is not impacted by the change to a rookie quarterback. Engram is a matchup nightmare for most defenses and remains the Giants top receiving option. In Week 3, he'll get to face a Tampa Bay Bucs defense that just allowed Greg Olsen to put up 110 yards on six catches. Despite the fact that Engram will likely be a central focus for the defense, he can still be fired up as a locked-and-loaded TE1 in season-long leagues and an underrated pivot for DFS lineups.

    From RotoBaller

    Jordan Howard Sep 18 11:50am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard is not a recommended fantasy option in a Week 3 matchup against the Detroit Lions. Howard picked up just 18 yards on the ground in Week 2 and will only put up a decent fantasy score if he scores a touchdown. A running back that is so touchdown-dependent without any passing game upside is only worth considering in the deepest of formats. Howard could suddenly have some legitimate value if other members of the Eagles backfield were to get injured, but for now, he's little more than a bench stash just in case.

    From RotoBaller

    Carson Wentz Sep 18 11:40am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz likely won't be quite as strong a fantasy option as usual against the Detroit Lions in Week 3. Wentz watched both of his top wide receivers, DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery, leave the game in Week 2 with injuries. Both are officially questionable for Week 3, but most beat writers are expecting the two wide receivers to miss at least one game. Wentz will still have tight end Zach Ertz to throw to, but his top wide receiver will be drop-machine Nelson Agholor. Wentz is still a QB1 for Week 3, but he's on the lower 10-12 range instead of his usual 4-6.

    From RotoBaller

    Miles Sanders Sep 18 11:40am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles rookie running back Miles Sanders was one of the few Eagles offensive starters to escape Week 2 without an injury, but he's still not a very exciting fantasy choice for Week 3. Taking on a decent Detroit Lions run defense, Sanders is currently ranked on the RB2/3 turn. He could make for a decent FLEX play, but shouldn't be trusted as a starting running back in most lineups. Sanders has had some decent flashes and is being used in a way that could ultimately end up making him a fantasy starter, but for now he looks like he's still somewhat acclimating to the NFL game and might need some time before he becomes a set-and-forget fantasy starter.

    David Njoku Sep 18 11:00am ET

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (concussion) will not practice on Wednesday. Njoku was knocked out of the team's win over the Jets on Monday night during the first quarter when he was upended while trying to make a leaping catch. It doesn't come as a surprise that Njoku is still in the league's concussion protocol just two days after suffering the head injury. Njoku's fantasy owners will want to make alternate plans at the tight end position as he will have a tough time getting cleared on a short week. The Browns take on the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night in Week 3.

    David Fales Sep 18 8:43am ET

    Free-agent QB David Fales (Lions) signed an undisclosed deal with the New York Jets Wednesday, Sept. 18.

    Sep 18 2:33am ET

    Atlanta Falcons DE Austin Larkin and TE Carson Meier were released from the practice squad on Tuesday, Sept. 17. To fill their spots, free agents P Matt Wile (Vikings) and Nate Wozniak (Vikings) were signed. In a separate move, DT Ra'Shede Hageman (undisclosed) cleared waivers and was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

    Darius Jackson Sep 18 2:23am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darius X. Jackson was released from the practice squad Monday, Sept. 16; in a corresponding move, RB Jordan Chunn was re-signed.

    New England Patriots Sep 18 12:20am ET

    The New England Patriots Defense have allowed only three points all season and now will go up against third-string quarterback Luke Falk and the Jets in Week 3. The Patriots have been suffocating through the first two games and picked up two defensive pick-6 touchdowns against the Dolphins. With the offense humming and perhaps their most talented defensive secondary in the Bill Belichick era, the Patriots are to a great start. The defense suddenly is a must-own in all fantasy formats and will be a top play against the Jets in Week 3.

    From RotoBaller

    Antonio Brown Sep 18 12:10am ET

    New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown's first game with the Patriots was a rousing success, catching four passes for 56 yards and one touchdown in Week 2. Brown sat out the first offensive play but then immediately got in on the action and his quick chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady was evident. This week the Patriots will take on a banged up Jets team and Brown's snaps should increase. The All-Pro receiver still is learning the offense but has the kind of elite talent that can shine in any system. He may not be fully up to speed but Brown should still deliver solid fantasy numbers in Week 3.
