  • LAR Wide Receiver #17
    This will probably go down as a limited practice. Head coach Sean McVay appears intent on taking it easy on Nacua while he deals with this oblique injury, but has already gone on record saying he does not expect Nacua to be slowed come Monday night when the Rams take on the Bengals. Nacua has caught 25-of-35 targets through two games this season, and is one of the hottest names in fantasy. He’s a must-start in Week 3 against the Bengals.
  • SEA Defensive Back #27
    Fellow corner Coby Bryant is listed as out because of a toe injury. Though Seattle’s secondary is decimated heading into Week 3, it’s hard to imagine their opponents taking advantage of the situation. The Panthers are starting Andy Dalton this week while Bryce Young deals with an ankle issue. Dalton ranks near the bottom of the starting quarterback for fantasy purposes.
  • SEA Tight End #89
    Dissly’s likely absence could mean more snaps for Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who has been leaving the field whenever Seattle moves out of 11-personnel. However, Pete Carroll can still fall back on Colby Parkinson as the team’s TE2 if he wants. It could also mean a few more reps for Noah Fant.
  • SEA Wide Receiver #14
    As expected, Pete Carroll said Metcalf is on track to start. Carroll has been confident that Metcalf would play all week and didn’t falter today. Metcalf will suit up as a fantasy WR2 versus a Carolina team that will look to play a slow, low-scoring game with Andy Dalton under center.
  • SEA Safety #33
    According to head coach Pete Carroll Adams is “as close as you can get” to playing in Week 3. It doesn’t sound like Adams is a lock to go on Sunday, but Carroll also added that he is very likely to play in Week 4 against the Giants if he’s unable to go this week.
  • PHI Running Back #14
    The Eagles play on Monday, so they will have one more injury report before declaring Gainwell’s status, but it certainly looks like Gainwell will be cleared from the report on Saturday. He missed Week 2 with a rib injury, paving the way for D’Andre Swift to rush 28 times for 175 yards and a touchdown. The backfield split for Week 3 is entirely up in the air after Swift’s downright dominant performance, but it’s fair to say both backs will be stuck in a committee.
  • PHI Wide Receiver #6
    That’s two-straight limited sessions for Smith to open the week, as he looks to ready up in time for Monday night’s Week 3 matchup against the Buccaneers. Smith exploded for 4-131-1 in the Eagles’ Week 2 win over the Vikings and now has 178 yards and two touchdowns to show through two weeks. Assuming he’s good to go come Monday, Smith will be a fringe WR1 play against the Bucs.
  • CIN Tight End #84
    Smith wasn’t on the injury report Thursday, so it’s possible he tweaked something in practice. The veteran tight end has yet to top 20 receiving yards in a game, so fantasy managers should feel fine in cutting him in favor of a streaming tight end to avoid the injury headache.
  • CIN Quarterback #9
    Burrow did not participate in the Bengals’ first practice of the week on Thursday. Getting back to a limited session gives him a good shot at suiting up on Monday versus the Rams. He will get his official status after the team’s final practice on Saturday. For fantasy managers fretting a questionable tag that he ultimately can’t play through, Matthew Stafford is the best contingency plan to have in place. Baker Mayfield, who faces the Eagles also on Monday, would be the desperation option.
  • KC Linebacker #32
    Fellow linebacker Willie Gay is listed as questionable with a quad injury. It’s possible the team is without a pair of interior linebackers for Week 3. Though it won’t move the betting lines, it could give Justin Fields some extra upside as a runner.
