  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/22/16 5:16am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) will be a game-time decision Thursday, Sept. 22, in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: It sounds like there's a good chance he could make his season debut tonight, but he could be on a snap count. If he suits up, he's at worst a midrange TE1 option in DFS.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/21/16 10:58pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is likely to sit again in Week 3. Head coach Andy Reid said Wednesday, Sept. 21, that 'another week is going to help him. We'll just see.'

    Huddle Up: Charles has been inactive for the first two games, as Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West. Fantasy owners should be patient, as it could be another week or two before Charles returns to game action, and a handful of games before he regains fantasy relevance.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/21/16 10:40pm ET

    An arrest warrant for Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was withdrawn after the receiver complied with a year-old court order to take a DNA test in a paternity suit. In a statement, Gordon's attorneys said he was unaware until noon Wednesday, Sept. 21, that he had been requested to take the test.

    Huddle Up: Gordon remains on track for a return from his four-game suspension in Week 5. He might have a little rust initially, but he has WR2 upside if he can get up to speed quickly.

  • Antonio Gates - TE - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 9/21/16 10:39pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is uncertain for Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts, as he is battling a hamstring injury. If Gates is limited or inactive, TE Hunter Henry would likely see more involvement in the offense with TE Sean McGrath in a backup role.

    Huddle Up: Gates is a strong fantasy play if he is declared healthy to play, as the Colts secondary is dinged up and susceptible to big play through the air.

  • Tyler Lockett - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/16 9:40pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) is expected to be ready to play in the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday, Sept. 21, that Lockett is 'on track to play' in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Lockett had four receptions for 99 yards in Week 2, proving he can be an effective WR3 in all fantasy leagues.

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/16 9:39pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) is expected to play in the Week 3 game against the San Francisco. Head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday, Sept. 21, that Baldwin is 'on track to play.' Carroll said Baldwin's injury was a 'little knee twist,' and tests revealed no significant damage.

    Huddle Up: Baldwin has been a decent low-end WR2 in most fantasy leagues, but due to his health he should be treated as a WR3 in Week 3.

  • Thomas Rawls - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/16 9:38pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is 'on track to play' in the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers, head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Rawls was expected to carry the load in Week 2, but he hasn't proven he can make it through a full game and stay healthy. Look for a split with Christine Michael in Week 3, making both more RB3 options in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/16 9:37pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) was able to play 53 snaps in the Week 2 game against the Los Angeles Rams, a significant jump in play compared to Week 1. Head coach Pete Carroll said Graham was fine after the increase.

    Huddle Up: Graham managed three receptions for 42 yards in Week 2, so he is still far from being a TE1 in most fantasy leagues. Still, he is worth monitoring over the next game or two, and if you have the roster flexibility he isn't a bad option to stash away for the middle and end of the season.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/21/16 8:08pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will be covered by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in the Week 3 game, according to FS Tyrann Mathieu.

    Huddle Up: Watkins isn't 100 percent, and he will be blanketed by a top-notch cover man. The outlook isn't good for Watkins and his fantasy prospects in Week 3. He should be treated a low-end WR3 at best, if he plays.

  • Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/21/16 7:03pm ET

    Los Angeles RB Todd Gurley has gotten off to a slow start, but head coach Jeff Fisher said Wednesday, Sept. 21, that he is confident Gurley will improve. 'Yeah, he's outstanding. When the season is done, people are going to go, 'Wow'.'

    Huddle Up: Gurley has disappointed as a first-round pick in all fantasy formats so far, but there were still plenty of games to go. He remains a low-end RB1 heading into Week 3 against the Buccaneers, a team allowing 78.5 yards per game on the ground.

  • Cameron Artis-Payne - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/21/16 7:03pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Cameron Artis-Payne is expected to serve as the feature back in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings. 'All he's ever needed was the opportunity,' head coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday, Sept. 21. 'We didn't have (RB Jonathan Stewart) at the end of the season, so he got his opportunity and performed well and did some really good things. And then this preseason, I thought he had a really good preseason.'

    Huddle Up: CAP was inactive for the first two games, but mainly due to his inability to play special teams. He faces a difficult matchup in his first game, as the Vikings have a strong rush defense. Still, he is worth scooping up as a RB3 and as a low-priced flyer in DFS, as it sounds like he will see more carries than Fozzy Whittaker.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/21/16 7:00pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall (foot, knee) is dealing with a foot injury in addition to the injured medial collateral ligament in his left knee.

    Huddle Up: Marshall sounds like a huge question mark for Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs. If he is forced to miss time it might mean a bump in fantasy appeal for Eric Decker, Quincy Enunwa and Jalin Marshall, as well as potentially more looks for Matt Forte. However, Ryan Fitzpatrick might see a drop in his value if his top threat is limited or out.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/16 5:46pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Wilson was able to play last week despite the injury but was not able to do much in terms of running during the game. Wilson should still be a starting option in all fantasy leagues, but owners may want to lower their expectations because of the injury.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/16 5:44pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Graham was more involving the offense in Week 2 and finished with three catches for 42 yards. He should be active for the team's Week 3 game, but owners may have better options to use at tight end.

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/16 5:41pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Baldwin is expected to play this week, but owners should monitor the situation during the week. He caught only three passes for 20 yards in the last game but should be more involved in the passing game in Week 3. He should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

  • Tyler Lockett - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/16 5:39pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Lockett appears to be on track to play in Week 3, but owner should check on his status later in the week. He is coming off a 99-yard performance in Week 2 and should be a decent starting option because of his favorable matchup.

  • Thomas Rawls - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/16 5:34pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Rawls suffered the injury in the team's Week 2 game, so owners will need to monitor the situation to see if he will play this week. He has rushed for only 25 yards on 19 carries this season and could be benched by owners even if he is able to play.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 9/21/16 5:27pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Williams has become a deep threat for the Chargers with 132 yards on only five receptions. He should continue to have a solid role in the passing game and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option for fantasy owners.

  • Antonio Gates - TE - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 9/21/16 5:18pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Gates is in danger of missing Week 3. He has caught six passes for only 35 yards in the first two games but should be a focal point of the passing game with Keenan Allen and Danny Woodhead out for the season. He should still be a solid starting option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Markus Wheaton - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/21/16 5:14pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton was held out of the team's Week 2 game but appears to have a good chance to play in Week 3. He should receive solid playing time during the game and can be a flex option in most leagues.
