All Player News
  • GB Running Back #33
    The Packers didn’t log an official practice on Monday, but Jones opening the week on a limited basis is what we expected. The veteran running back nearly gave it a go in Week 3 against the Saints before being held out, so it sounds like he’ll be ready to go on Thursday night against the Lions. Jones will project as a high-end RB2, and was explosive in his lone outing in Week 1 against the Bears.
  • NO Quarterback #4
    A week-to-week prognosis for Carr is the best case scenario. Carr exited Sunday’s Week 3 contest against the Packers for what initially looked like a head injury, but was later diagnosed with a shoulder injury and taken to the hospital for further evaluation. Carr won’t play in Week 4 against the Buccaneers, giving Jameis Winston a fun revenge game narrative on the road against the team that drafted him No. 1 overall in 2015.
  • CAR Quarterback #9
    Young is less than a week removed from the ankle injury that ultimately held him out from Week 3. Young didn’t practice in the days leading up to Sunday’s matchup against the Seahawks, and he was ruled out before the weekend, but it’s possible he practices when the team takes the field Wednesday. If Young is unable to go, Andy Dalton will draw his second start on the season. Dalton threw for 361 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions in the Panthers’ loss and could be a worthwhile streaming option in Week 4 against the Vikings.
  • LV Quarterback #10
    It’s a bit alarming to know Garoppolo is in concussion protocol when we consider he played the length of Sunday’s Week 3 loss to the Steelers. He was not available to speak to media after the game due to the team evaluating him for a concussion, and he will now have to clear protocol in time for the Raiders’ Week 4 matchup against the Chargers. Brian Hoyer is listed as the backup to Garoppolo on the depth chart, but rookie Aidan O’Connell could have an outside shot at earning the start after a strong preseason.
  • NO Running Back #41
    Kamara is back after serving his three-game suspension and is eligible to play in Week 4 against the Buccaneers. We’ll see how much of his normal workload Kamara receives in his first game back, but with Jamaal Williams on injured reserve, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him handle the majority of the backfield snaps and touches out of the gate. Kamara can be trusted as a high-end RB2 against the Bucs as he returns to an offense that is likely to be helmed by Jameis Winston.
  • CIN Quarterback #9
    According to Russini, Burrow will go through a workout in the morning to see how he feels, but Burrow is reportedly “trending in the right direction.” Russini also noted that Burrow’s status for the game is “still uncertain” but he’s pushing the coaching staff and trainers to let him play. The 0-2 Bengals need Burrow in this game, as they can ill-afford to start 0-3. Backup Jake Browning is unlikely to lead the Bengals to their first win on the season, and almost certainly won’t lead fantasy squads to a win for fantasy managers banking on Burrow playing.
  • LAC Wide Receiver #81
    The worst was confirmed for Williams and the Chargers on Monday, as the star receiver will now be sidelined for the remainder of 2023 with his injury. Williams was humming to the tune of seven receptions for 121 yards and a touchdown before exiting Sunday’s game, and finishes the year with a line of 19-249-1. Williams was looking good in a revamped Chargers offense through three games, but will now have to wait until 2024 to show what he can offer in a full season in Kellen Moore’s offense. Quentin Johnston and Josh Palmer are both expected to see expanded roles with Williams now done for the season.
  • KC Quarterback #15
    Mahomes’ ankled was rolled up on by a defender late in the second quarter of the Chiefs’ win over the Bears, but he returned to play a few more downs before Andy Reid called off the wolves in the third quarter. The injury didn’t look good on video, but Mahomes isn’t one to take plays off if he thinks he can. We’ll see if he pops up on Wednesday’s injury report, but it sounds like he’ll be fine for Week 4 against the Jets.
  • KC Running Back #10
    The raw snap numbers suggest some kind of a backfield split, but Pacheco was in on 51.1 percent of the snaps Mahomes played on — a season-high for the Chiefs’ RB1. If we look at it from this angle, Pacheco has seen an increased snap share in each of his last three games, and has totaled 202 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown through three games. Pacheco has handled 42.7 percent of the Chiefs’ rush attempts, but Clyde Edwards-Helaire saw 14 carries in the team’s Week 3 smashing of the Bears. Pacheco will have strong RB2 upside in Week 4 against the Jets.
  • PIT Running Back #30
    Warren’s 45.2 percent snap share in Sunday’s win marked his highest snap share of the season, as the former UDFA continues to slowly work into Najee Harris’ workload. As runners, both Warren and Harris have struggled through the first three weeks, but Warren has proven to be the better fantasy asset thanks to his receiving upside. In PPR leagues, Warren has outscored Harris in every game this season and has 12 receptions for 101 yards on the season. On a week-to-week basis, both backs are hard to trust for fantasy purposes, but Warren isn’t going away and will continue to be a thorn for those who rostered Harris.
