Latest Headlines

Rex Burkhead is in the concussion protocol.

Burkhead wasn't checked for a concussion in Week 1, so this comes as a surprise. This may be from the hit he took on his second-quarter fumble. Burkhead has four days to get cleared for Sunday's Jacksonville matchup. With Jeremy Hill on IR and Sony Michel (knee) questionable, the Patriots could be down to Kenjon Barner and James White at running back.

Dalvin Cook (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Cook has been claiming he is fine and will be active against the Bills, but his practice participation is telling a different story. It would be far from surprising if the Vikes decided they did not need to risk a setback against the expansion-level Bills. We would consider Cook likely to sit at this point. That would make Latavius Murray a borderline RB1.

Josh Gordon (hamstring) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Gordon is expected to play against the Lions, but his involvement figures to be limited, more because of playbook considerations than his hamstring "injury." Gordon's upside is self evident, but so is his Week 3 downside. He's a high-risk, high-reward WR4 for his Patriots debut.
Sep 20 - 4:15 PM

Rob Gronkowski (ankle) was added to the injury report as a limited participant at Thursday's practice.

We don't know much about Gronk's injury at the moment and knowing the tight-lipped Patriots, that might remain the case. Late-week additions to the injury report are never a good sign, so we'll be keeping a close eye on Gronkowski ahead of Sunday night's game in Detroit. In the off chance that Gronk sits, it would open up targets for Chris Hogan and James White, among others.
Sep 20 - 4:15 PM

Marcus Mariota (elbow) practiced again on Thursday.

According to the assembled press, Mariota was throwing the ball with more velocity. Neither Mariota nor coach Mike Vrabel have inspired much confidence about his Week 3 status, but it's looking like there's a legitimate chance he takes the reins back from Blaine Gabbert. If he does, Mariota will be facing the worst possible matchup in the Jaguars.
Sep 20 - 3:08 PM

Julio Jones (calf) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Jones told the media Thursday that his absence was just a precaution after his calf tightened up in Sunday's win over Carolina. We'd expect him to close out the week with a limited session on Friday. Even with Defensive Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore likely to shadow him, Jones will be safe to pencil in as a WR1 in all formats.
Sep 20 - 2:50 PM

Kelvin Benjamin (hip) was upgraded to full practice on Thursday.

Benjamin saw limited reps Wednesday due to a hip injury, though obviously the injury was nothing serious. He should see his usual workload on Sunday, though he'll be greeted by one of the league's better secondaries when the Bills travel to Minnesota.
Sep 20 - 2:40 PM

Updating an earlier report, Giovani Bernard (knee) was upgraded to full practice on Thursday.

It puts Bernard on track to play Sunday at Carolina. Gio averaged 23.5 touches in the two games Joe Mixon was absent for last year and should receive a similar workload in Week 3. That makes him an upside RB2 in all formats.
Sep 20 - 2:36 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) returned to Cardinals practice on Thursday.

Fitz will be slapped with a "limited" tag, but coach Steve Wilks has already vowed he will play against the Bears. There is little reason to doubt that at this point. With Sam Bradford struggling mightily, Fitz is just a borderline WR2 for Week 3.

LeSean McCoy's ex-girlfriend is still accusing McCoy of being involved in the July burglary of her home and is holding a Friday press conference where she will announce a $20,000 reward for information in the case.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Milton, Ga. police have "yet to uncover anything incriminating against" McCoy. The story is going to keep generating headlines but right now it is short on clear information or a straightforward narrative.

T.Y. Hilton (quad) remained sidelined on Thursday.

As did Jack Doyle and LT Anthony Castonzo. Hilton has claimed his injury is "nothing to worry about," but back-to-back DNPs = uncertainty. A "limited" session on Friday would have Hilton on track to play against the Eagles.
Sep 20 - 1:50 PM

Marlon Mack (foot, hamstring) remained sidelined Thursday.

Mack's return lasted one game. Barring a return to "full" status on Friday, he is almost certainly going to sit against the Eagles. That makes for a FLEX opportunity for Jordan Wilkins, albeit in a rough matchup. Mack is week to week and a shaky hold on the back-end of fantasy benches.
