Latest Player Updates

Cowboys kicker Greg Zuerlein made all four of his extra point tries and both of his field goal attempts, including the game-winner as time expired in Sunday's come-from-behind victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Through two games, Zuerlein is 3-for-4 on field goal attempts and 6-for-6 on extra point tries, with one of his field goals coming from more than 40 yards out and his lone miss being on a 50+ yard attempt. With the Dallas offense expected to again be one of the better units in the league, the veteran kicker should see plenty of work going forward.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers D/ST surrendered 427 total yards and 17 points in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: While they gave up over 400 yards of total offense, the Buccaneers stepped up when it mattered most and only allowed the Panthers to score 17 points. Sacking Teddy Bridgewater five times and picking him off twice, the Tampa D/ST had a solid game for their fantasy owners. They'll get a matchup at Denver in Week 3 facing a backup quarterback in Jeff Driskel and should be started in fantasy.

Cowboys running back Tony Pollard rushed two times for six yards and caught one pass for three yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Even with the Dallas offense putting up 40 points on Sunday, Pollard was mostly invisible. His value in fantasy is as the handcuff to Ezekiel Elliott and nothing more, for the time being.

Buccaneers K Ryan Succop was successful on his lone field goal attempt and on all four of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: Succop had another solid outing, but until the Buccaneers offense really gets going, he will be hard to trust in fantasy. Succop gets Denver in Week 3.

Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski failed to corral his only target in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: Another game another disappointment for Gronkowski. Through two games, it looks like Gronkowski should be dropped in fantasy. He gets a decent matchup at Denver in Week 3 but his lack of opportunity puts him out of fantasy relevancy until something changes.

Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz surprisingly led the team in targets on Sunday, catching nine of his 10 targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: With Blake Jarwin lost for the season, Schultz was the logical candidate to replace him, but not many expected this kind of production. He is still available in most leagues and should be added on waivers everywhere in the event that he sees consistent targets going forward.

Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard caught 1-of-3 targets for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: While Howard was a Week 2 disappointment following a promising outing in the season opener, Rob Gronkowski did not do anything either -- blanked on one target. The Buccaneers' tight end room from a fantasy perspective is a wild card and a mess. Howard gets a decent matchup at Denver in Week 3.

Buccaneers WR Justin Watson caught 2-of-3 targets for 48 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: With Chris Godwin out, Watson was more involved in the offense, but not enough to garner fantasy relevancy. If Godwin returns in Week 3 at Denver, Watson should be dropped in most traditional fantasy formats.

Buccaneers RB LeSean McCoy carried the ball one time for a five-yard loss and caught 5-of-7 targets for 26 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: McCoy could not get going with his opportunities and also dropped a potential touchdown in the end zone. While this is a crowded backfield, McCoy's role is clearly in the passing game. He gets the Broncos on the road in Week 3.

Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed seven times for 23 yards with a touchdown and caught both of his targets for four yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: Although Jones scored, he was out-touched and out-gained in terms of total yards by Leonard Fournette in Sunday's victory. After a botched handoff which resulted in a fumble, Jones found himself in Bruce Arians' doghouse on the bench once again. Sound familiar? Jones gets a tough matchup at Denver in Week 3 but may-be off the fantasy radar in favor of Fournette moving forward.

Buccaneers WR Scotty Miller caught 2-of-3 targets for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: Even with Chris Godwin out, Miller could not get going in Sunday's win following a promising 5/73/0 line on six targets in the season opener. Miller is merely a desperation Flex option in PPR in Week 3 against Denver.

Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette rushed 12 times for 103 yards and two touchdowns and caught 4-of-5 targets for 13 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: After Fournette was a non-factor in the season opener, he exploded for 116 total yards and two touchdowns in Week 2. Even with Ronald Jones also playing well, Fournette should be able to contribute in fantasy following this promising performance. Fournette out-touched Jones 16-to-9 and out-gained him 116-to-27. Fournette gets Denver in Week 3.

Dolphins coach Brian Flores says CB Byron Jones (groin) "would have to heal pretty quickly" to play in Week 3 against the Jaguars. (Source: Adam Beasley on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Miami plays on Thursday night this week, which is obviously a quick turnaround from playing on Sunday afternoon. Jones left that contest against the Bills with a groin issue and should be considered doubtful for Week 3. With or without Jones, the Dolphins D/ST isn't a recommended streaming option in Week 3.

Category: Injury Updates


Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught 7-of-10 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: Evans has now scored in consecutive weeks, only this time, he also went over 100-yards receiving. The Tampa offense should open up more now that Evans is fully healthy and once Chris Godwin returns as well. Evans gets a tough matchup with Denver in Week 3.

Cowboys rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb caught six of his nine targets for 106 yards in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Lamb led the Cowboys in receiving on Sunday while he and Cooper each received nine targets, which was surprisingly second to Dalton Schultz's 10 targets. Through his first two games, Lamb has caught 11 of his 15 targets for 165 yards.

The Miami Dolphins D/ST gave up 417 passing yards to Josh Allen in the team's 31-28 Week 2 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Miami recorded a fumble recovery and a sack but ultimately struggled mightily on the defensive side of the ball. A deep touchdown to John Brown late in the game sealed the victory for the Bills. The Dolphins get the Jaguars in Week 3 but aren't a recommended streaming option.

Logan Thomas caught four of nine targets for 26 yards against the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Although Thomas wasn't very productive with his opportunities, it's an encouraging sign that his QB is looking for him frequently. Thomas has 17 targets in two games and if he can improve his efficiency could become a viable fantasy starter at TE.

Category: Game Recaps


Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 23-of-35 passes for 217 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: Brady had a quiet game throwing as the Tampa Bay offense dominated on the ground. Once Brady has his full arsenal of weapons, his fantasy production should pick up. Brady gets the Broncos in Week 3.

Category: Game Recaps


Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup caught two of his five targets for 58 yards in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: While it is still early, Gallup appears to be playing third fiddle to Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb in the Dallas offense. Through two games, he has caught five of his 10 targets for 108 yards. Cooper and Lamb were each targeted nine times on Sunday.

The Carolina Panthers D/ST surrendered 339 total yards and 31 points in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: While they picked Tom Brady off once, the Panthers' defense could not get to him for a single sack. The young Carolina defense is not a fantasy asset at the moment.
