Field Level Media

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones, wide receiver Christian Watson, left tackle David Bakhtiari and cornerback Jaire Alexander were ruled inactive for Sunday's game against the visiting New Orleans Saints.

All four players were listed as questionable on Friday by the Packers (1-1), who have a quick turnaround with a home game against the Detroit Lions on Thursday.

Jones sustained a hamstring injury at the end of his 35-yard touchdown catch-and-run in Green Bay's 38-20 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sept. 10. He finished with nine carries for 41 yards and a score and two receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown.

Fellow running back A.J. Dillon likely will see a boost in playing time with Jones sidelined for the second straight game.

Watson has yet to make his season debut due to his hamstring injury. He recorded 41 catches for 611 yards and seven touchdowns in 14 games (11 starts) as a rookie in 2022.

Bakhtiari is nursing a knee injury. The three-time Pro Bowl and two-time All-Pro first-team selection has made 130 regular season starts for Green Bay, although a knee injury limited him to one start in 2021 and 11 in 2022.

Alexander was added to the Packers' injury report on Friday with a back injury. The two-time Pro Bowl selection has eight tackles and two pass deflections in two games this season.

The Packers also listed defensive backs Anthony Johnson Jr. and Zayne Anderson as well as offensive guard Elgton Jenkins as inactive.

As for the Saints (2-0), they listed the following as inactive for Sunday's game: cornerback Paulson Adebo, tight end Foster Moreau, wide receiver A.T. Perry, offensive lineman Nick Saldiveri and defensive lineman Kyle Phillips.

Pick'em Plays: Week 3

Player Notes
Joey Bosa Sep 24 11:40am ET
Joey Bosa

Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa (hamstring) is officially active for Week 3 versus the Minnesota Vikings. He had been listed as questionable. Bosa also shed a questionable designation in order to play last week, and although he was held to just 19 percent of snaps, he amassed four tackles and two sacks. The 28-year-old is expected to see an uptick in snaps this Sunday as the Chargers look to slow down Kirk Cousins and company.

Salvon Ahmed

Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed (groin) is officially inactive for Week 3 versus the Denver Broncos. This comes as no surprise after the Dolphins listed him as doubtful heading into the weekend. Rookie De'Von Achane will operate as the No. 2 option behind Raheem Mostert but isn't a viable fantasy starter.

DeAndre Hopkins Sep 24 11:40am ET
DeAndre Hopkins

Tennessee Titans wide receiver De'Andre Hopkins (ankle) is officially active for Week 3 versus the Cleveland Browns. He had been listed as questionable after missing practice on Friday. Hopkins will continue to operate as the Titans' top receiver, ranking as a strong WR3 in fantasy football.

Aaron Jones Sep 24 11:40am ET
Aaron Jones

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (hamstring), who was listed as questionable for Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints, has been ruled out for the second straight week. Jones will now miss back-to-back games after tweaking his hamstring in the season opener in Week 1. Fantasy managers hoping to get him back this weekend will now have to wait until Week 4 on a short week next Thursday against the Detroit Lions. Consider Jones very questionable to play in that game as well. AJ Dillon will get another chance to deliver for fantasy managers this Sunday after disappointing in a lead role last weekend, but it won't be easy against a stingy Saints defense. Behind Dillon will be rookie Emanuel Wilson and Patrick Taylor.

Greg Zuerlein

New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein (groin) is officially active for Week 3 versus the New England Patriots. He had been listed as questionable, but it seemed likely that he would play after the Jets opted against adding another kicker to their roster on Saturday. Although Zuerlein is healthy, poor offensive play coupled with adverse weather conditions have rendered the veteran an unappealing option in fantasy football leagues this week.

Joey Bosa

Los Angeles Chargers LB Joey Bosa (hamstring) will be active for Week 3's game against the Minnesota Vikings and he will receive more playing time than he had in Week 2. Bosa had been listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in two of the team's three practice sessions on a limited basis.

Robbie Anderson Sep 24 11:20am ET
Robbie Anderson

The Miami Dolphins elevated wide receiver Robbie Chosen from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster on Saturday in time for their Week 3 contest against the Denver Broncos. Linebacker Cameron Goode also joins Chosen on the active roster. Chosen will give the Dolphins an extra receiver for Sunday's clash in Miami after the Dolphins ruled Jaylen Waddle (concussion) out. The 30-year-old Chosen was cut on Aug. 29 but re-signed to the team's practice squad to give them extra receiver depth. Chosen hasn't really come close to replicating his 1,000-yard season in 2020 with the Carolina Panthers and isn't likely to have much of a role on Sunday with Waddle out. Behind Tyreek Hill, Braxton Berrios, River Cracraft and Erik Ezukanma will have expanded roles in Week 3.

Quez Watkins

Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott (concussion) and wide receiver Quez Watkins (hamstring) have been ruled out ahead of Week 3 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Scott had reportedly cleared concussion protocol, but he still practiced in a limited capacity on Saturday and evidently wasn't going to be ready in time for kickoff. Philadelphia's backfield will feature D'Andre Swift, Kenneth Gainwell, and Rashaad Penny on Monday night. Watkins, on the other hand, did not practice at all this week. Olamide Zaccheaus will operate as the Eagles' No. 3 receiver in his absence.

Bryce Young

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young (ankle) has already been ruled out for Week 3, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport notes that there is "some optimism" he'll be able to return as early as Week 4. The rookie completed 42 of 71 passes for 299 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions through his first two games in the league. If he does play next week, he'll rank as a low-end fantasy QB2 versus Minnesota.

Austin Ekeler

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler (high-ankle sprain) is "hopeful" that he can return in Week 4, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. However, with a Week 5 bye, the Chargers could choose to hold him out until Week 6. He had 154 scrimmage yards and one touchdown in the season opener. Until Ekeler can return, Joshua Kelley will operate as the lead back while Isaiah Spiller and rookie Elijah Dotson also earn opportunities.

Josh Reynolds Sep 24 10:40am ET
Josh Reynolds

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds (groin), who had been listed as questionable, will be active for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. The 28-year-old has played a key role in Detroit's passing attack this season, totaling nine catches, 146 yards, and two touchdowns through just two weeks of action. Fantasy managers in need of help at WR/FLEX should feel comfortable playing Reynolds, especially amidst speculation that teammate Amon-Ra St. Brown (toe) might not be 100 percent healthy.

Jaylen Waddle

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (concussion) has already been ruled out for Week 3, but he's "progressing well and there's been no setbacks," per NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe. Waddle entered the concussion protocol after taking a hit to the head versus the Patriots in Week 2. Although he'll miss Sunday's game between the Dolphins and Broncos, it sounds like there's a chance he could be cleared in time for next weekend's clash with the Bills. Until then, Braxton Berrios and River Cracraft should see more snaps as Miami's No. 2 receiver behind Tyreek Hill.

Joe Burrow Sep 24 10:20am ET
Joe Burrow

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (calf) is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 3 versus the Los Angeles Rams. According to's Ian Rapoport, Burrow's pre-game workout will decide whether or not he suits up. His status remains a true question mark, but given that Burrow doesn't play until Monday, it would be wise for fantasy managers to make backup plans. Pulling Burrow, the QB32 overall in fantasy football, from lineups on Sunday allows for managers to find his replacement within a larger list of candidates. On the other hand, waiting until Monday night comes with risk, because if he's ruled out, managers will have to pivot to Matthew Stafford or Baker Mayfield.

Jaylen Warren Sep 24 10:10am ET
Jaylen Warren

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Warren is expected to "get a bigger role" against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 3, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 24-year-old has arguably looked better than Najee Harris so far this season, especially in the passing attack. It's worth noting that Rapoport reported Warren and Harris would split the workload back in Week 1, and while Warren finished that game with just 18 yards, he and Harris both had eight touches. Heading into Sunday Night Football versus Vegas, Warren ranks as a fantasy RB3.

Detroit Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs is expected to operate as the team's top rusher versus the Atlanta Falcons. While Craig Reynolds should see additional opportunities in David Montgomery's (thigh) absence, "Gibbs will receive the bulk of the carries," according to a post from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fantasy managers should deploy Gibbs as a high-end RB2 ahead of a relatively favorable matchup against Atlanta.

Saquon Barkley

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) could return to the field in Week 4, per's Ian Rapoport. The talented 26-year-old missed Week 3 with a high-ankle sprain, but now that he has 10 days of potential recovery before the Giants' Monday Night Football appearance, Barkley could get healthy in time to play. He has 114 rushing yards, 41 receiving yards, and two touchdowns so far, making him the RB7 overall in fantasy football.

Seattle Seahawks S Jamal Adams (quadriceps) is not expected to play in Week 3's game versus the Carolina Panthers, according to a source. He had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging two full practice sessions and one limited session during the week. Adams has a strong chance to return to action in Week 4's game against the New York Giants, according to a source.

Amon-Ra St. Brown

Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (toe) is optimistic of playing in Week 3's game versus the Atlanta Falcons, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: St. Brown had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging one full practice session and one limited session during the week. It's an encouraging sign that as the week progressed, his participation in practice also increased, so he should be in uniform this afternoon. When healthy, St. Brown is a weekly starting option in all fantasy formats.

Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams (knee) had been listed as questionable for Week 3 but is not expected to play, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. The 27-year-old hasn't played in a game since Week 1 last year, and while there was hope that he could return Sunday versus the Carolina Panthers, that won't be the case. The Seahawks face the Giants next week and are on bye in Week 5, meaning there's a possibility Adams doesn't return until Week 6. However, Schefter notes that the safety has a "strong chance" to play versus New York next Monday.
