Latest Player Updates

Justin Herbert, listed as questionable due to a rib injury, will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 3 matchup against the Jaguars in Los Angeles. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The main problem here for fantasy managers is that Jaguars-Chargers is a late kickoff, and many won't be able to wait that long before making a decision on whether or not to start Herbert. If Herbert is unable to go, Chase Daniel will start for the Chargers.

Patrick Surtain, questionable due to a shoulder injury, is expected to play, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Surtain missed practice early in the week but trended in the right direction with limited and full participations to close out the week. The FantasyPros Team and Position Power Rankings have the Broncos as a Top 10 defense and secondary this week, and both of those would likely drop if Surtain were unable to play.

Jerry Jeudy, listed as questionable for Sunday night due to a rib and shoulder injury, is on track to play vs. 49ers but wants to see how it feels in pre-game warmups, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jeudy missed practice earlier in the week but was able to get out on the field on Friday. The tricky part here is that the Broncos play on Sunday night, which could put fantasy managers in a tough spot if we don't hear more concrete news ahead of the 1 p.m. ET kickoffs. Monitor his status for updates and have a backup plan, even though it sounds like he is expected to play. If Jeudy is out or limited Week 3, Courtland Sutton and TE Albert Okwuegbunam could see additional targets and K.J. Hamler could play a larger role, though he is also listed as questionable.

James Conner, listed as questionable for Sunday due to an ankle injury, will test it pre-game but is tracking to play vs. the Rams, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Cardinals have a late kickoff on Sunday, so this puts fantasy managers in a bind. If Conner is unable to go, Darrel Williams and Eno Benjamin figure to share backfield snaps and touches for the Cardinals in their Week 3 matchup against the Rams.

Alvin Kamara, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a rib injury, is expected to play vs. the Panthers, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kamara received just nine carries in Week 1 and missed Week 2 against the Buccaneers, but it appears he is ready to return in Week 3 against the Panthers. Monitor his status ahead of Sunday's early kickoffs in case there are updates about his potential workload after missing last week.

Josh Gordon elevated for Sunday

By Leo Sells

Josh Gordon has been activated from the Titans' practice squad ahead of their game against the Las Vegas Raiders Sunday. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gordon was elevated ahead of last week's game against the Bills as well, and the team clearly feels like they need more depth at the WR position on gameday. The veteran wideout hasn't been fantasy relevant in a long time, and he probably isn't worth a roster spot in the vast majority of leagues.

J.K. Dobbins (knee) will make his season debut during Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dobbins has been working on recovering from a torn ACL, LCL, hamstring, and meniscus that he sustained over a year ago. The team has been playing it careful with his return so far, but they think that he's finally ready to be eased back into playing. He will certainly not see a full workload upon his return, and it could still be a few weeks before he gets to the point that fantasy managers want him at. He should be sat until we see how he looks, but he projects to take over the backfield in a matter of weeks if he's healthy.

Josh Jacobs (illness) is traveling to Tennessee Saturday. He missed the previous two practices and did not travel with the team to Tennessee Friday. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jacobs is still officially listed as questionable, but it is a positive sign that he is traveling today to meet up with the team. If Jacobs is unable to play in Week 3, fantasy managers should expect to see Zamir White and Ameer Abdullah get additional touches against the Titans.

Kayvon Thibodeaux (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 3. (Source: Around The NFL on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thibodeaux has missed the first two weeks of his rookie season after suffering a knee injury in the preseason. Thibodeaux was limited in practice all week, but a questionable designation means it is possible we see the rookie's NFL debut on Monday.

Dalton Schultz (knee) is officially questionable for Week 3. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Schultz is dealing with a PCL injury in his right knee that he suffered in the Cowboys' Week 2 win. Schultz has missed the last two days of practice and was listed as limited Saturday, although it is an estimation since the team held a walkthrough. If Schultz is forced to sit out Monday, Peyton Hendershot and Jake Ferguson will like fill in against the Giants.

Micah Parsons (illness) is officially listed as questionable for a Week 3 matchup with the Giants. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Parsons had missed the previous two practice sessions due to illness. The Cowboys held a walkthrough Saturday, so his limited participation is an estimate. It appears that the Cowboys' defense will have their star pass rusher Monday night against the Giants.

Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) has officially been ruled out for Week 3 against Dallas. (Source: Dan Salomone on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Robinson will miss his second consecutive game due to a knee injury. With Kadarius Toney listed as doubtful, fantasy managers should expect Sterling Shepard, David Sills, and Richie James to see the bulk of the targets Monday.

Kadarius Toney (hamstring) is listed as doubtful heading into a Week 3 matchup with Dallas. (Source: Dan Salomone on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: With Wan'Dale Robinson already ruled out, if Toney is unable to go Monday the Giants will be thin at wide receiver. David Sills, Sterling Shepard, and Richie James should still be the main focal points in the passing game.

The Rams placed WR Van Jefferson on IR Saturday with a knee injury. (Source: Adam Caplan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jefferson was recently said to be "day-to-day" but apparently needs some more time to recover from offseason knee surgery. He will miss at least the next four games. In his absence, fantasy managers should expect Ben Skowronek to see additional targets moving forward.

Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was placed on IR by the Packers Saturday. (Source: Packers on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Watkins will now miss at least the next four games. With the Packers dealing with multiple injured wide receivers, the move allows them to elevate Juwann Winfree from the team's practice squad. The team hopes the 29-year-old will be able to return to the field after missing just four games.

Taylor Lewan (knee) is out for the remainder of the 2022 season. (Source: Bussin' With The Boys on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Lewan suffered the knee injury in the Titans' Week 2 loss to Buffalo. Dennis Daley will likely get the starting reps at left tackle moving forward. Losing Lewan is definitely a major blow to the Titans' offense which focuses on running the ball with Derrick Henry. Fantasy managers should expect a slight dip in offensive production from the Titans.

The Buccaneers have elevated Cole Beasley to the active roster ahead of their Week 3 matchup with Green Bay. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Beasley was signed to the Tampa Bay practice squad earlier in the week. With the team not having the services of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and potentially Julio Jones in Week 3, they needed to ensure they had depth on the roster. The veteran wide receiver may not be heavily featured in the offense, but does give Tom Brady another offensive weapon ahead of their matchup with the Packers.

Ronnie Stanley (ankle) has officially been ruled out for the Ravens' Week 3 game against the Patriots. (Source: Jamison Hensley on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Stanley continues to deal with an ankle injury that has sidelined him over the past few weeks. So far Lamar Jackson and the Ravens' offense have been able to withstand the loss of their left tackle, so the loss of Stanley for another week should not impact the fantasy stock of any of the Ravens' playmakers.

Micah Hyde (neck) will be placed on IR Saturday and will miss the remainder of the 2022 season. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hyde is suffering from a herniated disc and the team hopes that he can make a full recovery and return in 2023. The Bills will likely turn to Damar Hamlin to fill the free safety spot heading into Week 3 and now potentially for the remainder of the season. The loss of Hyde is massive for the Bills' defense and will be a hard void to fill.

Andy Isabella (back) practiced in full all three days this past week. As a result, he has been removed from the injury report and will play in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Rams. (Source: Jourdan Rodrigue on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Isabella hauled in one of three targets for 10 yards in the season opener before missing Week 2. His return to the field could give Arizona some much-needed depth behind Marquise Brown, Greg Dortch, and A.J. Green.
