Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot)
Has been ruled out for Week 3. He was still in a walking boot on Thursday, so he might be looking at a multi-game absence here. QB Kyle Allen starts this weekend’s game against the Cardinals. He played well in last year’s finale but struggled to a 52.9% completion rate and 4.9 yards per attempt this preseason. Allen is just a low-end QB2 for Week 3 — but he’s worth considering at minimum price on DraftKings.
Steelers RB James Conner (knee)
He’s not listed on the final Week 3 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so that knee shouldn’t be an issue. Conner draws a stout 49ers run defense this weekend, but he should have volume on his side — especially with QB Mason Rudolph making his 1st career start.
Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf)
Listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Falcons. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after missing the first 2 workouts of the week. The Indianapolis media seems to be optimistic about Mack’s chances of playing vs. Atlanta. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, Mack will be a risk/reward RB2. If not, Jordan Wilkins figures to serve as the Colts’ lead back, with Nyheim Hines also playing an increased role.
Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip)
Jacobs wasn’t listed on the final Week 3 injury report. He put in a full workout on Friday after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday. On top of the hip issue, Jacobs said he lost 10 pounds this week with an illness. Throw in a brutal matchup against the Vikings, and the rookie should only be considered a RB3 for Week 3.
Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee)
He’s been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) is listed as questionable. He put in a limited practice on Thursday and was listed as a full participant on Friday. Andy Reid said McCoy “got better each day” and had “a great practice [Friday].” It sounds like McCoy will suit up this weekend, although it’s safe to assume he won’t be at 100%. That, plus a tough Ravens run defense, adds risk to his fantasy outlook. But there’s plenty of upside thanks to Kansas City’s explosive offense. We’re expecting RB Darwin Thompson to mix in behind McCoy, but the rookie is just a fantasy flier.
Bills RB Devin Singletary (hamstring)
He’s been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. He didn’t practice all week and shouldn’t be considered a lock to return for Week 4. Frank Gore will serve as Buffalo’s lead back in a plus spot as a home favorite against a Cincinnati defense that’s allowed 5.4 yards per carry to RBs through 2 weeks.
Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny
He is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Saints after injuring his hamstring in Friday’s practice. His absence would give RB Chris Carson’s volume projection a boost and leave C.J. Prosise as Seattle’s #2 RB. Seahawks-Saints doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET so it gives us some time to
Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad)
Hilton is currently listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. He was limited in practice all week, but we’ve heard no concern about his status. Keep Hilton penciled into fantasy lineups, but check back around noon ET on Sunday to make sure he’s active.
WR Alshon Jeffery (calf)
Currently listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He didn’t practice all week, but the team is evidently holding out hope that he’ll be able to suit up this weekend. Fantasy owners shouldn’t be counting on having Jeffery in Week 3 lineups. We’ll get his official game status by noon ET on Sunday.
Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (groin)
D-Jax has been ruled out for this weekend’s game against the Lions. He didn’t practice all week and is also expected to miss next Thursday night’s clash with the Packers.
Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (calf)
The #1? WR out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. DeVante Parker, Preston Williams and Jakeem Grant should continue to serve as Miami’s top 3 WRs — but none can be trusted in fantasy lineups.
Ravens TE Mark Andrews (foot)
Andrews is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chiefs after limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Andrews was listed as questionable last week before dropping an 8-112-1 line on the Cardinals. He should be fine for Week 3 though and will be in a few of our optimal nfl dfs lineups this week.
Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion)
Reed didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday and is a long shot for Monday night’s game against the Bears. We’ll get another update on him this afternoon, but look for Vernon Davis to get another game as Washington’s lead TE. He’s not a great fantasy play vs. Chicago.
