  • ARI Running Back #6
    Conner has been the Cardinals’ workhorse back this season, handling 58 touches for the team in three games. A limited practice leaves a low cause for concern, but Conner’s situation is one to monitor as the 28-year-old’s physical playstyle and age may be catching up to him. If he can’t go in Week 4 against the 49ers, Keaontay Ingram is next up with flex upside. Otherwise, Conner can be played as an RB2.
  • IND Quarterback #5
    Richardson has been in the league’s concussion protocol since Week 2 against the Texans. The Colts’ injury report lists the rookie as a full participant, bringing him a step closer to returning to action. If fully cleared, Richardson can be started in fantasy lineups for Week 4 against the Rams. If he remains out, Gardner Minshew will be the starter with borderline-QB2 fantasy upside.
  • FA Wide Receiver #10
    Smith was released by the Saints earlier this week after being placed on injured reserve with a groin injury. Unsurprisingly, he is visiting a Broncos team coached by Sean Payton, who Smith played for from 2018-2021. If Denver signs him, Smith will join a lackluster team that needs an offensive boost, though his injury will keep him low on the fantasy radar.
  • PIT Wide Receiver #11
    Dealing with an ankle injury, Robinson missed the first practice of the week for the Steelers. The 30-year-old has 11 catches in three games for the struggling Pittsburgh offense. Robinson has taken on a larger role in Diontae Johnson’s absence, but it has not conveyed for fantasy. Should Robinson miss Week 4 against the Texans, Calvin Austin could see a bump in targets, though he is a mere flex play in deep leagues.
  • LV Quarterback #10
    Garoppolo was put in concussion protocol after Sunday’s game against the Steelers. He is still moving through the protocol, causing him to miss practice and putting his status for Week 4 in doubt. If Garoppolo cannot go, it will be either veteran Brian Hoyer or rookie Aidan O’Connell at QB against the Chargers.
  • DEN Wide Receiver #10
    A limited session to open the week is likely just maintenance, though this will be something to look out for later in the week. After a quiet Week 2, Jeudy showed signs of life versus the Dolphins with five grabs for 81 yards. He will look to find the end zone for the first time this year in a juicy matchup with the Bears on Sunday.
  • KC Wide Receiver #19
    Toney played through the toe issue last week and that was after sitting out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday. It looks like the issue is improving, though his stat line from Sunday remained uninspiring. Toney caught his only target for a one-yard loss versus the Bears. Fantasy managers can keep Toney on the bench for now.
  • KC Quarterback #15
    Mahomes had his ankled rolled on in the Chiefs’ Week 3 beatdown of the Bears. He limped off the field after suffering the injury in the second quarter but played on the bum ankle after halftime until Andy Reid pulled all of his starters. Mahomes has had a number of close calls with ankle injuries over the years, but he once again escaped without a major issue. He is locked in as a top-five fantasy quarterback for Week 4 against the Jets.
  • LAC Running Back #30
    It’s Ekeler’s first appearance at practice since suffering what is likely a high-ankle sprain in Week 1. The Chargers have a bye week in Week 5, so resting Ekeler for one more game to give him an extended recovery time is still on the table. However, with Joshua Kelley flopping as the starter and Mike WIlliams out, an extra spark on offense couldn’t hurt. If Ekeler is able to play in Week 4, he will reclaim his spot among the rest of the RB1s in a matchup with the Raiders.
  • CLE Running Back #34
    Ford only logged 12 touches in Week 3 but was on the field for 56 percent of the team’s snaps. Kareem Hunt is also dealing with groin and rib injuries, so he shouldn’tn present much of a threat to Ford’s workload for now. As long as Ford is upgraded to a full session by the end of the week, he will rank as an RB2 versus the Ravens.
