  • LAR Wide Receiver #17
    The Rams don’t play until Monday night, leaving Nacua with two days of practice still to go. Head coach Sean McVay said he plans to limit Nacua in practice due to his injury, but doesn’t believe he will be affected come game day. Nacua is seeing all-world volume in the Rams offense and has quickly turned into one of the best late-round values we’ve seen in fantasy. He’ll be a must-start high-end WR2 against the Bengals in prime time.
  • HOU Quarterback #7
    Stroud has estimated he is “close” to 100 percent. He played through the issue to no ill effect in Week 2. Off to by far the best start of this year’s rookie quarterback crop, Stroud is bubbling under on the streamer radar. The Jags are a little too tough of a matchup to trust Stroud for Week 3.
  • PHI Running Back #35
    It is unclear when Scott picked up the brain injury, as he was not listed as injured in Week 2 against the Vikings. It has him doubtful for Monday night’s game against the Bucs. Scott’s injury coincides with Kenneth Gainwell’s (ribs) return, so he wouldn’t be in line for more than 2-3 touches even if he’s active against the Bucs.
  • PHI Running Back #14
    It puts Gainwell on track to return for Monday Night Football against the Bucs after missing Week 2 vs. Minnesota. Gainwell ended up missing only one game, but D’Andre Swift re-proved how much more explosive he is than the Eagles’ coaching staff favorite, turning 31 touches into a ludicrous 181 yards from scrimmage. Gainwell isn’t just going to be mothballed, but it stands to reason Swift probably earned another lead back shot. FLEX finders should be aiming higher than Kenny G for Week 3.
  • MIA Wide Receiver #10
    Hill popped up on Wednesday’s injury report, but we had no knowledge of him dealing with an injury prior to then. Whatever it is he’s working through appears to be minor, as the Dolphins upgraded him to full on Thursday, suggesting he’ll be ready to go for Week 3 against the Broncos. Assuming he plays, Hill can be slotted in as a top five fantasy receiver, as usual.
  • HOU Wide Receiver #3
    It would appear Wednesday’s limited session was purely precautionary. Coming off an early-season breakout in Noah Brown’s (injured reserve) absence, Dell has exciting upside but also obvious downside as the No. 3 option behind Nico Collins and Robert Woods. He remains an interesting bench stash in the hope he can supplant Woods as as the Texans’ No. 2 wideout.
  • PHI Wide Receiver #6
    The two-injury designation certainly isn’t great coming off the long week after last Thursday’s triumph, but the fact that Smith was out there for the Eagles’ first official practice bodes well for his odds of suiting up on Monday Night Football. Fantasy managers can keep Smith penciled in on the WR1/2 borderline.
  • DAL Center #63
    Biadasz was added to the practice report as a limited participant on Thursday with a hamstring injury. This comes on the same day the Cowboys found out they lost star cornerback Trevon Diggs to a torn ACL. Losing Biadasz for any length of time would only make matters worse for the Cowboys, who also have Zack Martin sitting out with an ankle injury.
  • ATL Running Back #84
    Patterson has yet to suit up for a regular season game, and was scratched for Week 2 despite being a full participant in every practice. This thigh injury has hampered Patterson for the last several weeks, and could sideline him again in Week 3 against the Lions. Even if he’s healthy/active, Patterson is completely off the fantasy radar with Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier handling most of the workload.
  • SF Wide Receiver #11
    This was always the most likely outcome after Aiyuk barely practiced on the short week. That, combined with the 49ers operating as massive home favorites make a week of rest by far the most prudent choice for a player believed to be battling a sprained AC joint. That’s an injury players usually gut through, though not always effectively. Aiyuk is at least getting some time off. His absence makes Deebo Samuel a high-end WR2, if not WR1. Jauan Jennings and Ronnie Bell will see the biggest uptick in snaps in Aiyuk’s absence but won’t be on the re-draft radar.
