Dan Harris

 Bradford missed Week 2's matchup against the Steelers with a bone bruise in his knee, and if you saw him warming up before the game, you knew that he was not close to playing. Things appear to be trending in the right direction for Bradford now, but his availability against the Bucs is far from certain. Even if he does play, he's almost impossible to trust, despite a monstrous effort in Week 1 against the Saints. The Bucs harassed the Bears offense and Mike Glennon last week, with a sack and two interceptions. Bradford will undoubtedly struggle with his mobility even if he does suit up on Sunday, making this a matchup to avoid in leagues of nearly all sizes.

 Is he playing?
Kelly Smelser

 Watch his status for Week 3. If he's out, Keenum will rise up the chart a bit.

Alex Smith has a nice matchup against a Chargers D that is just 26th against fantasy quarterbacks in 2 games this year.
