All Player News
  • BUF Tight End #88
    Dalton Kincaid SZN may be on hold for at least one more week, and Knox took the leap from not practicing on Wednesday and Thursday to being a full participant on Friday. The veteran tight end has seen a near 50-50 split with Kincaid through the first two games of the season, but has just six receptions for 35 yards and one touchdown on nine targets. Assuming he suits up, Knox is nothing more than a TE2 option in Week 3 against the Commanders.
  • LV Wide Receiver #16
    Meyers missed Week 2 because of the concussion but was back at practice on Wednesday. He was upgraded to a full session on Thursday and appears to be entirely cleared from the Raiders’ injury report heading into the weekend. Meyers racked up nine catches for 81 yards and a pair of scores in his Las Vegas debut. He looks like a strong bet for WR2/3 numbers as an integral part of McDaniels’ offense.
  • TEN Wide Receiver #10
    Hopkins popped up on Thursday’s injury reported and was listed as a limited participant. The veteran receiver battled through the same ankle injury in Week 2 against the Chargers, but seems to be trending in the wrong direction this week. The fact he played in Week 2 despite missing all three practices last week is enough for us to not rule him out heading into the weekend, but fantasy managers should have other plans in place if he is held out.
  • LAC Running Back #30
    After missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday as well, it’s safe to rule out Ekeler for Week 3 against the Vikings. Ekeler said earlier this week his injury was a “day-to-day, week-to-week type of situation.” It sounds like a Week 4 return is up in the air as well. With the Chargers’ passing game capable of carrying the load on offense until Ekeler returns, the need for LA to rush him back is low. Joshua Kelley will start versus a weak Minnesota run defense. After seeing the bulk of the work in Week 2, he will project for high-end RB2 numbers this week.
  • MIA Wide Receiver #17
    It will likely go down as a limited session for the speedy receiver. His return to practice gives him a shot at suiting up on Sunday. Waddle remains in the league’s concussion protocol but is making progress. It’s possible he will be cleared on Saturday or even Sunday morning and is able to play. The Dolphins play in the early window of games, so fantasy managers will know if they need to swap him out of their lineups before any of the games start.
  • GB Wide Receiver #9
    The most likely outcome is that Watson will be listed as a limited participant for Friday’s session and get a questionable tag heading into the weekend. Watson has yet to play this year and missed time in his rookie season with a hamstring issue. The Packers may choose to sit him one more week to ensure he doesn’t re-aggravate the injury. If he does miss Week 3, Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed will be in line for strong workloads once again.
  • IND Quarterback #10
    With Anthony Richardson still in concussion protocol, Minshew will get a chance to start his first game of 2023. The veteran quarterback threw for 171 yards and a touchdown in relief of Richardson last week, and is now on his third season with head coach Shane Steichen after the two spent 2021 and 2022 together in Philadelphia. Minshew is among the best backup quarterbacks in the league and could be relied on in a pinch as a low-end streaming option in 2QB and superflex leagues.
  • IND Quarterback #5
    Richardson was trending toward missing after being sidelined in practice all week. The Colts start rookie exited in the first quarter of Week 2 with a concussion, and has been in the league’s concussion protocol ever since. Veteran quarterback Gardner Minshew, who joined the Colts after playing in Philadelphia under Shane Steichen, will get the road start against a stout Ravens defense.
  • WAS Tight End #82
    Thomas remains in the league’s concussion protocol and will miss Week 3’s matchup as a result. The Commanders No. 1 tight end has been held out of practice all week after exiting Week 2’s contest against the Broncos, but could be back in time for Week 4. Cole Turner and John Bates will both get looks at tight end, but neither should be considered reliable for fantasy this week.
  • CAR Quarterback #9
    Journeyman Andy Dalton will be under center for the struggling Carolina offense against Seattle. He’s only playable in deep superflex leagues. Young, meanwhile, could reportedly miss Week 4 as well. Young should not be rostered in most fantasy formats.
