  • Rashad Jennings NYG RB
    Giants' Rashad Jennings: Week 4 return possible
    26m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Rashad Jennings (thumb) stands a chance of returning for next Monday night's Week 4 game against the Vikings, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

    Jennings missed New York's loss over the weekend due to a thumb ailment, but the extra day before the New York Giants ' Week 4 tilt could help his quest to return to the field soon. While Jennings' status is expected to be evaluated and updated accordingly throughout this week, Shane Vereen's season-ending triceps injury makes Jennings' situation particularly worthwhile to monitor.

    49ers' Keith Reaser: Could be in line to start Week 4

    Keith Reaser could start next Sunday against the Cowboys if Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) isn't able to suit up, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Reaser played 48 snaps and recorded two tackles after taking over for the injured Ward on Sunday. The former's injury looked serious and he could miss extended time. If that's the case, then Reaser could be in line to start in his place.

    Eagles' Leodis McKelvin: Week 5 return expected
    40m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) is expected to return in Week 5 against the Lions, according to Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson.

    McKelvin has missed Philadelphia's past two games due to a hamstring injury picked up in the team's season-opener, but should be back in action following the Eagles' Week 4 bye. If that indeed transpires, McKelvin would figure to reclaim his top cornerback position, which would represent an added boost to coordinator Jim Schwartz's current fourth-ranked total defense.

    49ers' Gerald Hodges: Records six tackles in start Sunday
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Gerald Hodges recorded six tackles (one solo) in Sunday's 37-18 loss to Seattle.

    As expected, Hodges got the start alongside NaVorro Bowman on Sunday and turned in a respectable six-tackle performance. He played in 60 of the team's 70 defensive snaps, dismissing any idea of a time-share with Michael Wilhoite. Hodges has racked up 16 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in the two games since Ray-Ray Armstrong (pectoral) went down for the season. He could end up being one of the best IDP values this season due to his reduced draft day price and current situation.

    Chris Ivory sprained both his knee and ankle during Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

    Ivory made his season debut Sunday after missing Jacksonville's first two games due an undisclosed medical issue, but now has a pair of new maladies to start this week. While the rugged runner was able to play though his knee and ankle sprains, Ivory finished with 12 rushes for just 14 yards. If he's limited by his latest ailment ahead of Sunday's Week 4 matchup with Colts in London, T.J. Yeldon could see the bulk of the Jacksonville Jaguars ' backfield work, which was the case when Ivory was out to begin the campaign.

    According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Jeremy Langford likely sustained an ankle sprain during Monday's loss at Dallas.

    There were initial fears that Langford may have come down with the always debilitating Achilles injury, but a mere ankle sprain should induce a sigh of relief from owners. Of course, the sprain could still be of the high variety, which would be accompanied by a lengthy absence. Langford's ability, or lack thereof, to practice this week will provide insight into his Week 4 viability. If he requires a respite, rookie Jordan Howard would likely handle the bulk of the work out of the Chicago Bears ' backfield.

    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Suffered MCL sprain Sunday
    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Russell Wilson suffered a sprained MCL during Sunday's game against the 49ers, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Wilson's injury was confirmed by coach Pete Carroll during a Monday morning interview, when he also said the quarterback has already started rehabbing the injury. As it stands, it's unclear what Wilson's status for this Sunday's game against the Jets will be, especially since he's still nursing an ankle ailment, but escaping the gruesome-looking incident with just a sprained knee should be some relief for all parties involved. While Wilson's situation will certainly have to be monitored in the days, and likely weeks, to come, it wouldn't be surprising if the Seattle Seahawks sign a veteran quarterback to bolster their ranks outside of undrafted rookie Trevone Boykin at the position going forward.

    Bears' Brian Hoyer: Mimicks Cutler as garbage-time hero
    15h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Brian Hoyer completed 30 of 49 passes for 317 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    With Jay Cutler (thumb) sidelined, the Chicago Bears went three-and-out on their first two drives, allowing Ezekiel Elliott and Co. to build a 24-3 lead by the half. Hoyer wasn't actually to blame, as the Bears were held back by penalties and an inconsistent rushing game, in addition to Dallas' dominance of possession. In fact, Chicago only ran 18 plays in the first half, including six on a drive that started at the team's own 25-yard line with 38 seconds remaining before the break. Hoyer finally took advantage of the favorable matchup after halftime, mostly honing in on Zach Miller and Kevin White, with the former accounting for both touchdowns. Things briefly got somewhat interesting midway through the fourth quarter, but Hoyer put the nail in his team's coffin with a sloppy fumble that could've easily been avoided. He'll draw another favorable matchup in Week 4 against Detroit, unless Cutler is ready to return.

  • Dak Prescott DAL QB
    Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Efficient once again
    15h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Dak Prescott completed 19 of 24 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown, adding four carries for 36 yards and another score in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Bears.

    Prescott was once again efficient while taking a backseat to the Dallas running game, though this time around he was actually a part of the rushing attack, most notably on a one-yard plunge at the goal line. He later recorded the first passing touchdown of his career, and he was able to pick up key first downs whenever the Dallas Cowboys seemed like they might be letting the lead slip. While won't be turned loose unless the team has to play from behind, Prescott is shockingly poised and accurate for a rookie, giving him serious upside when such a scenario arises. Dating back to the preseason, he's yet to commit a turnover in the NFL. Next week brings a favorable matchup in San Francisco, though game flow could work in Ezekiel Elliott's favor more so than Prescott's.

  • Jameis Winston TB QB
    Buccaneers' Jameis Winston: Throws for 405 yards, three TD in loss
    16h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Jameis Winston completed 36 of 58 passes for 405 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 37-32 loss to the Rams. He also gained 13 yards on four rushes and lost a fumble on a strip sack that was returned for a touchdown.

    The 2015 first overall pick set career highs in completions, attempts and yards in the marathon contest, but ultimately came up short when it counted most. Following an extended weather delay due to lightning in the area, Winston helped lead the Bucs down the field from their own 44 to the Rams' 15 in the closing minutes before firing four consecutive incompletions and then inexplicably taking a sack on the final play instead of throwing into the end zone. Winston's two turnovers were also costly, with his interception setting up one of Todd Gurley's two touchdown runs and his fumble getting returned 77 yards by Ethan Westbrooks for a touchdown. On the positive side, he encouragingly made use of his full array of weapons, completing passes to eight different receivers. The former Seminole will try to bounce back against what should be one of his toughest challenges of the season when he and the Bucs take on the Broncos in Week 4.

    Jets' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Throws six picks in loss to Chiefs
    16h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 20 of 44 passes for 188 yards, but he was picked off six times during Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Chiefs.

    Two of Fitzpatrick's interceptions were tipped and picked off in the end zone, but it was still a disastrous outing, with five of the interceptions coming in the second half. Amazingly, the New York Jets had the ball down only two scores with about five minutes left in the game, but Fitzpatrick couldn't get them into the end zone. He targeted Quincy Enunwa 11 times and Brandon Marshall 10, but neither caught more than four, and Bilal Powell led the team with 41 receiving yards. Fitzpatrick will look to put the horrible performance behind him, though the schedule only gets tougher, as the Jets will host the Seahawks in Week 4 before traveling to Pittsburgh and Arizona.

    Kirk Cousins completed 21 of 35 passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 29-27 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

    The Giants took a 21-9 lead in the second quarter, but Cousins hit for long touchdowns to DeSean Jackson and Jamison Crowder in the second and third quarters, respectively, to start a comeback that resulted in a victory. He was more decisive Sunday, but he did not have a particularly high completion percentage once again. It was, however, an improved performance, and Cousins will have the opportunity to build off of it in Week 4 versus the Browns.

    Chiefs' Jamaal Charles: May return in Week 4

    Jamaal Charles (knee) may return to action on Sunday night at Pittsburgh, Terez A. Paylor of Kansas City Star reports. "There's a chance he's out there this week," head coach Andy Reid said Monday.

    Per usual, we're kicking off the week with news that Charles is drawing closer to his first appearance since tearing the ACL in his right knee in Week 5 last season. In order to do so, he'll have to take a step up from work with the scout team and instead take part in team drills. Until he reaches that point, the Kansas City Chiefs are likely comfortable entrusting the backfield to Spence Ware, who managed 75 yards on 20 carries and hauled in his sole target for eight yards during Sunday's dominating win against the Jets.

    Orleans Darkwa could be in line for an increased role due to Shane Vereen's season-ending triceps injury, the New York Daily News reports.

    With Rashad Jennings (thumb) on the pine Sunday versus the Redskins, Darkwa split the RB touches with Vereen, garnering 10 carries for 53 yards and one touchdown. Meanwhile, Vereen had 11 runs for 67 yards and a touchdown, which he supplemented with two receptions (on five targets) for 28 yards. With Vereen out of the picture and Jennings' status up in the air, Darkwa could take the reins of the backfield in the short term, though head coach Ben McAdoo stated Monday that rookie Paul Perkins is "ready to step up." The situation will be one to monitor closely as next Monday's game in Minnesota approaches.

    Head coach Ben McAdoo said Monday that Paul Perkins is "ready to step up" in the wake of Shane Vereen's season-ending triceps injury.

    Vereen served as Rashad Jennings' (thumb) replacement Sunday against the Redskins, posting a team-leading 67 rushing yards and corralling two passes to boot. With Vereen sidelined moving forward and Jennings' status up in the air, the New York Giants may employ a committee approach with its backfield in flux in the short term. Granted, Orleans Darkwa spelled Vereen on Sunday and turned 10 carries into 53 yards and a touchdown, while Bobby Rainey caught one of two passes for 24 yards. Active for the first time in his career in Week 3, Perkins didn't manage any touches whatsoever, but Monday's endorsement from McAdoo implies that his professional introduction is near.

    Packers' Ty Montgomery: Plays sparingly in Week 3

    Ty Montgomery did not catch a pass and had one carry for minus-one yard in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

    Montgomery tallied just four snaps Sunday, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, and was even used out of the backfield, but he was at least involved in the game plan to some degree after being shut out in Week 2. A position change is not in the works for Montgomery, but he has not been able to get on the field at his true position, so the Green Bay Packers tried another way to get him involved. He remains part of a fluid situation behind the Packers' top trio of wideouts in Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams.

After an explosive first couple games this season, Snead's absence figures to open more opportunities for rookie Michael Thomas and Brandon Coleman as complements to Brandin Cooks against a vulnerable Falcons pass defense.

    Steelers' Markus Wheaton: Benched in season debut
    3h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Markus Wheaton 's three drops in his season debut Sunday leaves uncertainty around the Pittsburgh Steelers ' No. 2 wide receiver position, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Wheaton dropped a sure-fire touchdown on the Steelers' opening drive Sunday and failed to haul in his next couple targets as well, resulting in him being benched in Pittsburgh's lopsided loss. After he was pulled, Sammie Coates, Eli Rogers, Darrius Heyward-Bey, tight end Jesse James and even reserve running back Darryl Richardson were used ahead of Wheaton at receiver, at least until Rogers exited due to a toe injury. Although the Week 4 return of running back Le'Veon Bell should give the Steelers a unique second option to Antonio Brown in the passing game, the team's need for a consistent supplementary wideout was magnified by Wheaton's struggles Sunday.

    Trevor Davis did not catch a pass in Sunday's victory over the Lions, but he did draw a 66-yard pass interference penalty and was on the field for 12 of the Green Bay Packers ' 54 offensive plays, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

    Davis' name does not show up in the box score out of the punt return category, but he finished fourth among Packers receivers in snaps Sunday and likely would have marked down a 68-yard touchdown for his first career reception had he not been interfered with on the second-quarter play. He's still looking for his first catch and is not officially the No. 4 receiver on the depth chart, but the Packers drafted him for his speed, and it looks like they will continue trying to take advantage of it both on offense and special teams. Davis worked as the team's punt returner Sunday and mustered just one yard on his lone official return, but he did have a lengthy run-back wiped out by a penalty.

  • Davante Adams GB WR
    Packers' Davante Adams: Scores again, but sees snaps cut
    4h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Davante Adams caught two passes for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

    Adams made a quick impact on Sunday afternoon, reaching the end zone for the second time this season on a 14-yard reception less than four minutes into the game. However, his production and opportunities were minimal after that, as he was targeted just once more and was on the field for only 25 plays in all, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. That meant Adams was on the field just 46 percent of the time Sunday after playing over 83 percent of the snaps coming in. In somewhat of a surprise, rookie receiver Trevor Davis picked up most of the extra snaps, though he did total just 12 plays himself. Adams' 16 targets and two scores through three weeks are passable, but it's not clear if he will continue seeing red-zone looks, and he has also tallied just 99 yards. If his playing time remains reduced coming out of the Green Bay Packers ' Week 4 bye, it could be difficult for him to produce viable numbers when not reaching paydirt.

    Pierre Garcon tallied five receptions for 59 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants.

    After a quiet performance in Week 2, Garcon made a bigger impact against the Giants, as he had the best game of the season thus far. While the wideout has failed to get into the end zone yet this season, he showed Sunday that he can still be an impactful possession receiver. However, it seems that Jamison Crowder (five receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown) is quickly replacing Garcon as the team's No. 2 wideout.

    Zach Miller caught eight passes for 78 yards and a pair of touchdowns on nine targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    Although he actually trailed Kevin White for the team lead in targets, Miller finally came through with the breakout performance many were expecting prior to the season. It happened with Brian Hoyer under center, but while Hoyer's final statistics didn't look bad, he was unable to move the ball until Dallas had a three-score lead. Regardless of whether Jay Cutler (thumb) or Hoyer is the quarterback, Miller will be worth keeping a close eye on, as he was startable in most leagues last last December. While unlikely to be efficient, the Chicago passing attack does have some garbage-time potential.

    Hunter Henry could get another start at tight end if Antonio Gates (hamstring) is unable to play, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Gehlken suggests the veteran tight end wasn't even close to healthy enough to play Sunday, a notion that should perk up the ears of Henry fantasy owners. Filling in for Gates against the Colts, Henry played in every offensive snap and caught all five of his targets for 76 yards. While he did suffer a key fumble late in the fourth quarter, Henry figures to have done enough offensively to see more targets in the coming weeks if Gates misses any more time.

    Ertz has been sidelined since suffering a displaced rib during Philadelphia's season-opening win, but with the Eagles now entering a Week 4 bye, he could return for their next appearance. Should that transpire, adding Ertz would only figure to boost an offense that has already impressed to begin this season. That being said, by Ertz reclaiming the Eagles' starting tight end position, both Brent Celek and Trey Burton would probably be pushed down the pecking order in Philadelphia's passing game.

    Rodgers finished with his lowest yardage total of the young season Sunday but was able to reach the end zone for the first time during the current campaign. He worked behind fellow tight end Jared Cook -- Cook played 79 snaps to Rodgers' 61 -- over the first two weeks, but Rodgers was on the field for 80 percent of the plays Sunday, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, in part because Cook left the game with a foot injury.

His absence left Dion Sims and MarQueis Gray to fill the void at tight end, which figures to be the case with him out again Thursday versus Cincinnati.

    Some of the rookie kicker's summer problems have crept into the regular season, as Aguayo has now missed a pair of field goals over the last two weeks, along with Sunday's extra-point try. Partly as a result of the missed point-after attempt, the Bucs had to go for a two-point conversion after their two second-half touchdowns, failing to convert either.

    The extra-point attempts were a big issue last season, when six misses almost cost Carpenter his job. However, Sunday's miss was his first of the season, and he's been true on eight others. With the Buffalo Bills winning big, Carpenter's job seems fairly secure for the time being; however, his 17 points on the season put him just tied for 21st among the league's kickers.

    01/12/2016 • By RotoWire Staff

    The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

    Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the final drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 seconds remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.
