  • CAR Linebacker #7
    Panthers LB Shaq Thompson was carted off the field in the team’s Week 2 game against the Saints.
    Saints left tackle Trevor Penning fell onto Thompson’s right ankle late in the first corner. Thompson stayed on the field, visibly in pain, before the medical staff came out to look at him. He was eventually helped to the cart and left the game. Thompson was later listed as doubtful to return.
  • DET Wide Receiver #8
    Lions WR Josh Reynolds (core) is questionable for Week 3 vs Atlanta.
    Reynolds got in a full practice Friday, putting him on track to play. With the Lions expected to go pass heavy in Week 3, Reynolds is in line for an increase in targets as Detroit’s WR2.
  • LAR Wide Receiver #17
    Puka Nacua (oblique) returned to practice on Friday.
    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
    Seahawks CB Tariq Woolen (chest) is doubtful for Week 3 against the Panthers.
    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
    Seahawks TE Will Dissly (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 3 against the Panthers.
    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
    DK Metcalf (ribs) is questionable for Week 3 against the Panthers.
    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
    Seahawks listed S Jamal Adams (knee) as questionable for Week 3 against the Panthers.
    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
    Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) was a full participant in Friday’s practice.
    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
    Devonta Smith (thigh/hamstring) was limited in Friday’s practice.
    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
    Bengals TE Irv Smith (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday’s practice.
    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
    Joe Burrow (calf) was a limited participant in Friday’s practice.
    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.
