Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown was absent from meetings and film review Monday, Sept. 17, and it's not known whether it was excused or not.
Fantasy Spin: A former Steelers employee was critical of AB on social media saying he was a product of the positive circumstances the team had when he was drafted. Brown fired back: "Trade me and let's find out." Clearly, there is a disconnect of some sorts here. Keep tabs on this when practice opens Wednesday to see if there is potential punishment for the elite WR1.
Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory (concussion) is expected to be able to play in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. He was forced to miss Week 2 because of a concussion, but has already returned to practice and should be able to clear the league's concussion protocol in time for Sunday's game. Gregory's presence will be a boost to the Dallas defense, but they're still not a recommended fantasy unit.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is lowering the expectations of wide receiver Josh Gordon, who the Patriots acquired via a trade on Monday. "You know, I hate to make projections and expectations. That's not fair," Brady told Jim Gray on Westwood One on Monday night. "I've never met Josh personally, just like I hadn't met some of the guys that have come in the last couple weeks. So we'll see how it goes this week and hopefully he can work hard, put the team first and end up helping us in any role that he can find for himself on the team." He also cautioned that it could take time to develop chemistry with Gordon. The embattled receiver surely upgrades New England's receiving room with Julian Edelman suspended two weeks, but it'll depend on whether Gordon can clean up his act and learn this offense quickly enough. It's unclear if Gordon will be active in Week 3 against the Lions on Sunday night. If he is, he'll be a boom-or-bust WR3.
New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple (groin) suffered a groin injury in Week 2 that will likely keep him out this weekend against the Texans. B.W. Webb replaced Apple in the lineup and will likely move into a starting role if Apple is inactive. Apple sitting out this weekend would be an upgrade for Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson and his receivers.
Free-agent WR Brice Butler (Cardinals) is expected to sign with the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday, Sept. 18. Terms weren't disclosed.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said running back Chris Carson was "gassed" from playing special teams in Monday night's loss to the Bears, which is why he didn't touch the ball at all on offense in the second half. The team also wanted to see what rookie Rashaad Penny could do, too. It seems a bit fishy, but perhaps the Seahawks just wanted to change thing up after not doing anything at all on offense in the first half. Carson had six carries for 23 yards and didn't catch a single pass. This comes a week after Carson made strides as the lead back over Penny. The biggest obstacle to Carson's production is Seattle's terrible offensive line and inability to move the ball consistently. If he now has to deal with more of a committee backfield, he won't be a very attractive fantasy option. Seattle's backfield is looking like one to avoid.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Taylor Gabriel caught four passes for 30 yards and added 17 rushing yards in the Bears win over the Seahawks. Gabriel was targeted throughout the game and it is clear his role has expanded now that he is on the Bears. Quarterback Mitch Trubisky has not targeted the speedster down the field yet but Gabriel has been a reliable presence in the intermediate passing game. The Bears offense isn't explosive enough yet to make Gabriel worthy of fantasy consideration but he is a huge part of their offense right now.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller caught his first professional touchdown in the Bears Week 2 win over the Seahawks. Miller sprung free on an out-route for the 10-yard catch to put the Bears up 17-3 at the time. Miller has earned raves from the coaching staff throughout training camp and the preseason but is still earning snaps at the NFL level. He may be a few weeks away from being considered fantasy viable but the rookie is already making plays in big moments.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught four passes for 20 yards, including a touchdown in the Bears 24-17 win over the Seahawks in Week 2. Burton scored on a fantastic play-call by head coach Matt Nagy, catching a shovel pass from quarterback Mitch Trubisky for the 7-0 lead. Burton even took a snap from the wildcat in the game as the Bears are intent on flashing a variety of formations on offense. Burton will continue to factor heavily in the Bears offensive game-plan moving forward.
Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard carried the ball 14 times for 35 yards and added three catches for 33 yards in Week 2. Howard had some nice runs to move the chains but the new-look Bears offense has meant less touches for the third-year running back. The most impressive aspect of Howard's game, through two games, is his improved ability to catch the football. Howard is a huge part of the Chicago offensive attack and big things should be on the horizon in the coming weeks. Howard should see plenty of scoring opportunities next week against the Cardinals.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson caught 10 passes for 83 yards in the Bears 24-17 win over the Seahawks in Week 2. Robinson was quarterback Mitch Trubisky's favorite target and came up with some big catches. The Bears tried to unleash Robinson downfield in the first half but Trubisky under-threw the pass and it was intercepted. Otherwise, the talented receiver made some nice catches in traffic and picked up several first downs. The chemistry is building between Trubisky and Robinson and both will have a positive matchup next week against the Cardinals.
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 25 of 34 passes for 200 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions as the Bears beat the Seahawks 24-17. Trubisky passed for multiple touchdowns for the first time in his career but still left some plays out on the field. The Bears got on the board off of a nifty shovel pass in the red zone to tight end Trey Burton for a touchdown. Trubisky endured some missed opportunities based on bad throws and shaky decision-making led to two interceptions. But he rebounded to find rookie receiver Anthony Miller outside of the pocket in the second half to keep the Bears up two scores. The Bears offense is still a work in progress but will have an excellent matchup next week against the Cardinals. Trubisky, however, will remain a risky play in fantasy until he can improve his execution.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen did not finish the Bears 24-17 win over the Seahawks because of an ankle injury. The versatile speedster caught only one pass for 17 yards and racked up only eight rushing yards. Cohen is a dynamic player with the ball in his hands but the Bears are still searching for ways to utilize him. Cohen's status should be monitored over the next week but the injury does not appear to be serious.
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson's touches on offense in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears were limited because he was 'gassed' after also playing special teams, head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Spin: If you were wondering why Rashaad Penny led the running backs in touches, and not Carson, it's because of his work on special teams, too. He also added the team wanted to see more of Penny. Fantasy owners of Carson cannot be terribly pleased he is doubling on special teams, as there is nothing to gain from a fantasy perspective in that capacity. The backfield picture is rather muddled heading into Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton had four grabs for 20 yards and a touchdown on his four targets in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Spin: The touchdown was nice for Burton, but he still has just five catches and 35 yards through two games on 10 targets. He'll need to bump up those totals before becoming a regular outside of the deepest of fantasy formats. The Bears travel to meet the Cardinals in Week 3.
Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel posted four receptions for 30 yards on seven targets in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, Sept. 17, and he rushed three times for 17 yards.
Fantasy Spin: Gabriel is a Swiss Army Knife who came be a difference maker, and it appears head coach Matt Nagy wants to get the ball in his hands. However, he remains more of a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller had two grabs for 11 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 win against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Spin: The rookie out of Memphis was dominant in college and he has speed to burn. He has a ton of upside, and he is a tremendous long-term keeper fantasy option. However, in redraft leagues he is more of a WR5 for now. The Bears travel to meet the Cardinals in Week 3.
Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson posted 10 receptions for 83 yards on 14 targets in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Spin: Robinson's numbers were game highs across the board, as he reeled in plenty of short and intermediate balls from Mitchell Trubisky. Going forward, it doesn't look like Trubisky is going to be looking downfield a whole lot, so Robinson could post some big catch totals on the short stuff. He's a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues heading into Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 14 times for just 35 yards in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, Sept. 17 while adding three grabs for 33 yards on four targets.
Fantasy Spin: Howard totaled 17 touches, but he was mostly spinning his wheels in a game which turned out to be a defensive slog. He'll likely have a lot more success in Week 3 on the road against the Arizona Cardinals, a team which allowed three rushing TDs to Todd Gurley in Week 2.
Chicago Bears WR Mitchell Trubisky completed 25-of-34 passes for 200 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Spin: It was Trubisky's first career game with two touchdowns in a single game. Both of the TD strikes came on play-action. Last season he had a total of two play-action TDs. He is showing some growth under Matt Nagy this season, but not enough to warrant fantasy consideration on a regular basis. The Bears travel to meet the Cardinals in Week 3.
