Latest Player News

All Player News
  • 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.
  • IND Quarterback #5
    Richardson is likely out for the Colts’ Week 3 clash with the Ravens. He suffered a concussion in Week 2 and left the game in the first quarter after rushing for two touchdowns in a Colts win. Garner Minshew, who threw for 171 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Texans, will get the start in Richardon’s place. Minshew is a reasonable superflex option.
  • DET Running Back #5
    It’s quite the development for Montgomery, who seemed earlier this week to be sidelined for at least a week, possibly two, after suffering a thigh contusion Sunday against the Seahawks. If Montgomery were to suit up this week against Atlanta, he might have a reduced role as he recovers from the injury. Jahmyr Gibbs should be locked into lineups either way. Craig Reynolds would mix in on early downs if Montgomery is out.
  • CAR Quarterback #9
    Young, who hasn’t practiced this week, has already been ruled out for Week 3 against the Seahawks. Person said the Panthers don’t expect Young to miss more than two games, which could include Carolina’s Week 4 matchup against the Vikings. Person said no one knows when Young hurt his ankle in the team’s Week 2 loss to the Saints, but Young apparently played through the injury in the second half. Andy Dalton will be under center for the Panthers until Young recovers.
  • SF Running Back #23
    McCaffrey’s four-yard touchdown in the second quarter made it 12 straight games he has found the end zone as a 49er. Special stuff. McCaffrey was running angry this evening, routinely tacking on extra yardage after first contact. With the 49ers playing on just three days’ rest, Elijah Mitchell was finally a little more involved, but CMC still made it three straight 2023 appearances that he has cleared 20 touches. In fact, he has yet to notch fewer than 23 handles. He now has 10 days to rest up for Week 4 against the Cardinals.
  • NYG Quarterback #8
    Playing behind a makeshift offensive line against the 49ers’ ferocious front seven, Jones had his second scoreless outing in three 2023 starts. Jones, as always, was overly conservative, but there just wasn’t much he good do against this defense with the limited number of playmakers at his disposal. Jones and play-caller Brian Daboll tried to force the issue with Darren Waller, but it resulted in an inefficient night for the pass catcher and an interception for Jones. Waller let a fourth quarter target clang off his hands and into the air for the pick. Jones has bookended last week’s strong fantasy effort against the Cardinals with dominations at the hands of Dallas and San Francisco’s elite defenses. The Seahawks should offer a Monday night respite in Week 4.
  • SF Wide Receiver #19
    Limited to 43 yards on nine first half targets, Samuel finally got rolling after the break. The highlight was his 27-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, where the blitzing Giants left Samuel 1-on-1 with Adoree’ Jackson. He did not lose the hand fight. Tonight was another Samuel YAC masterpiece, with a massive chunk of his yardage coming after first contact. That led to a scary moment in the fourth quarter where several G-Men landed on Samuel’s mid-section after a rugged run and he remained down on the field. He finally staggered to his feet after “only” seeming to have the wind knocked out of him. The definition of a “rolling ball of butcher knives,” Samuel has re-solidified his WR2 value regardless of Brandon Aiyuk’s health status. Aiyuk should be back from his shoulder injury in Week 4 against the Cardinals.

Mike Florio and Peter King reflect on Thursday night's Giants-49ers clash, highlighting why San Francisco is living up to its preseason billing as a Super Bowl favorite.
