Please view our Game Day Inactives, Injuries & Weather Report on Sundays as it will contain inactive reports and playing status news for all fantasy players.

  • Bennie Fowler - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/24/17 7:57am ET

    Denver Broncos WR Bennie Fowler (concussion) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Fowler was listed as questionable on the injury report and practiced on a limited basis Friday, Sept. 22. He's worthy of consideration as a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/24/17 7:57am ET

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (head) has been cleared to return to the Week 3 game after going through the concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: Maclin could see limited playing time in the second half of the game, so owners will need to lower their expectations this week. Maclin has been off to a solid start with the Ravens and could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option most weeks.

  • Sam Bradford - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/24/17 7:51am ET

    A second opinion from Dr. James Andrews confirmed that Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) has no structural damage in his left knee, according to multiple sources. He is considered week-to-week due to a bone bruise.

    Huddle Up: Bradford practiced on a limited basis twice last week before being ruled out for Week 3's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will rest for the foreseeable future in order to allow the joint to calm down. Case Keenum will continue to start in Bradford's absence but he should not be considered a viable option in any fantasy format. Owners of players such as Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs should expect a decline in offensive production as long as Bradford is sidelined.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/24/17 7:47am ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) may be able to do some things during practice next week and is looking at Week 6 as a possible return.

    Huddle Up: Luck likely will need several weeks of practice before he is ready to play in a game, so owners will need to monitor his situation over the next few weeks. Luck should be a starting option for fantasy owners during the second half of the season.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/24/17 7:33am ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (head) left the team's Week 3 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Maclin is diagnosed with a concussion. Maclin has played well in the first two games of the season but could miss games if he has a concussion, so owners may need other options available.

  • Andy Dalton - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/24/17 7:23am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton is not in any imminent danger of losing his starting job, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Dalton has struggled in the first two games this season and has zero touchdowns and four interceptions during that span. He has a solid group of pass catchers to work with and could improve under a new offensive coordinator, but owners in all leagues should avoid him for now.

  • Joe Mixon - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/24/17 7:18am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon is expected to receive a bigger role in the offense under new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Mixon has not been a big factor on offense so far this season with 45 rushing yards and 20 receiving yards in two games. He could become the starting running back in the near future but likely will still have to share work with Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard. Mixon has the potential to be a productive fantasy option and can be at least a flex option if he receives the majority of the touches.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/24/17 7:17am ET

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Amendola was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be a solid WR3 or flex option in most fantasy formats, although it wouldn't be surprising if the Patriots attempt to limit his snaps in his first game since the season opener.

  • Phillip Dorsett - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/24/17 7:07am ET

    New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (knee) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Dorsett was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He's worthy of consideration as a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Mike Evans - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/24/17 7:06am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans still has two years left on his contract, but the Buccaneers have started preliminary contract extension talks with Evans, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Evans has become one of the best receivers in the NFL, and the two sides have plenty of time to work out a long-term contract extension. He should be a starting fantasy option no matter the matchup.

  • Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/24/17 7:05am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) has been playing with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Howard is expected to play in Week 3 but likely will continue to share snaps with Tarik Cohen. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers run defense this week and may not be more than a flex option.

  • Torrey Smith - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/24/17 7:04am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith (illness) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Smith was listed as questionable on the injury report and missed practice Friday, Sept. 22. However, the Giants have allowed the ninth-fewest passing yards in the league, so this is not a very favorable matchup for him.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/24/17 6:59am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was listed as questionable on the injury report and was a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week. He has a favorable matchup this week and you should have no reservations about starting him in all fantasy formats.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/24/17 6:55am ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (knee) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Hogan was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as a solid WR3 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/24/17 6:41am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (knee) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Landry was listed as questionable on the injury report and practiced in full Friday, Sept. 22, after being a limited practice participant Thursday, Sept. 21. He has a favorable matchup this afternoon and should be considered a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 in all fantasy formats.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/24/17 6:36am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Parker was listed as questionable on the injury report and was a full practice participant Friday, Sept. 22, after missing the team's two other practice sessions during the week. He has a very favorable matchup versus the Jets and should be viewed as a WR2.

  • Alfred Blue - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/24/17 6:26am ET

    Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 3's game against the New England Patriots, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Blue was listed as questionable on the injury report and was a limited practice participant throughout the week. It was revealed a few days ago that once Blue returns to action, his primary role will be on special teams, so he possesses little fantasy value in any format. Lamar Miller and D'Onta Foreman will see the bulk of the carries versus the Patriots.

  • Kamar Aiken - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/24/17 5:59am ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Kamar Aiken (hip) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Aiken was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Despite the somewhat favorable matchup, the Colts possess one of the league's worst passing offenses, so Aiken can be ignored in most fantasy formats.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/24/17 5:35am ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder, ankle) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Newton was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Despite his sluggish start to the 2017 campaign, he should be viewed as a QB1 in all fantasy formats, given a highly favorable matchup against a New Orleans defense that has allowed 65 points over their first two games.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/24/17 5:26am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Nelson was a full participant in practice throughout the week but was listed as questionable on the injury report due to a strained quadriceps. He should be viewed as a WR1 in all formats, given a favorable matchup against Cincinnati and the likelihood that Randall Cobb (chest) will be held out of action this afternoon.
