NFL Week 3 News:
- Doug Baldwin (knee) practiced in full on Friday and is expected to play on Sunday.
- Sammy Watkins (foot) is questionable to play on Sunday, but I don’t expect him to suit up.
- Jay Cutler (thumb) is doubtful to play on Sunday. If he does end up sitting out, Brian Hoyer will get the nod.
- Stefon Diggs did not practice on Friday, but is expected to play on Sunday.
- Thomas Rawls (shin) is considered doubtful for Sunday. Christine Michael will get the start.
- Chris Ivory (illness) is expected to play on Sunday, but is expected to be on a snap count.
- Quincy Enunwa practiced in full on Friday and is expected to suit up on Sunday.
- Larry Fitzgerald practiced in full on Friday and will be ready to roll on Sunday.
- Willie Snead (toe) missed Friday’s practice and is considered questionable for Monday’s contest. If he’s unable to go, Michael Thomas will get a boost in targets.
- T.Y. Hilton (knee) did not practice on Friday, but Coach Pagano said he’ll be ready to roll on Sunday.
- Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was a limited participate in Friday’s practice, but is expected to suit up Monday Night.
- Antonio Gates (hamstring) looks doubtful for Sunday. With Gates out, you can expect rookie, Hunter Henry to get the start. Coach Mike McCoy seems to be high on this kid, so he could end up being an interesting DFS punt-play this weekend.
- Russell Wilson (ankle) said he’s feeling better this week and will play on Sunday.
- Devonte Parker (hamstring) was limited in Friday’s practice, but is expected to play on Sunday.
- Rashad Jennings (thumb) is no longer on the injury report and will be ready to roll on Sunday.
- Eric Ebron (back) practiced on Friday and is expected to play on Sunday.
- Alshon Jeffery (knee) practiced on a limited basis Friday and is questionable for Sunday.
- Julio Jones (calf) didn’t practice on Friday, but the Falcons are expecting him to play on Monday.
- Delanie Walker (hamstring) missed Friday’s practice and is considered questionable for Sunday.
- Eric Decker (shoulder) practiced in full on Friday and will be out there on Sunday.
- Arian Foster (groin) will be held out of Sunday’s contest. We can expect Miami to use all of their running backs on Sunday, and roll with the hot hand. I know I mentioned Ajai in my article earlier this week, but I’m now off him with the uncertainty of who the “main guy” is in the Dolphins’ backfield.
- Brandon Marshall (knee) was able to practice on Friday (with limitations), so we’ll consider him questionable.
- Corey Coleman (hand) is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks.
- Markus Wheaton has practiced in full this week and is on track to play on Sunday.
- Danny Woodhead (knee) is now out for the year after tearing his ACL last Sunday. Look for Melvin Gordon to be more involved in the offense.
- Jonathan Stewart will not play on Sunday. Cameron Artis-Payne is expected to start, but we could see him split carries with Fozzy Whittaker.
- Adrian Peterson (knee) will be out for a significant amount of time. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata are expected to split the load.
- Charles Clay (knee) was limited in Friday’s practice, but is expected to be ready for Sunday.
- Jamaal Charles (knee) is doubtful to make his 2016 debut on Sunday.
- Zach Ertz (ribs) will not be able to play on Sunday. Trey Burton will take his spot and is an interesting GPP play.
KC VS NYJ
Alex Smith finished Week 2 with a total of 3.64 fantasy points! You might be saying to yourself “WOW, that’s a whole lot of fantasy points, I’m definitely using him.” And guess what — I’m 99.99% sure he scores more fantasy points in week 3. I know I’m holding Smith to very high standards, but what can I say — he is a number overall pick for crying out loud!
Alright, Alright. Enough joking around. Let’s leave Alex Smith and his 3-point fantasy outing alone.
On a serious note: I think it’s a great thing that Smith had a terrible Week 2. His ownership percentage will be extremely low and I could see him blowing up on this Jets’ defense in Week 3. The Jets have been terrific against the run so far this season. Opponents have only averaged 71.5 yards on the ground (5th in NFL), which is great news for Smith. Reason being: I don’t see the Chiefs being able to run the ball effectively, which will force them to rely on Smith’s right-arm. He’s my very, very, very sneaky play of the week.
CIN VS DEN
If you thought I was crazy touting the great Alex Smith, you must think I am insane with this Giovani Bernard pick. Hey, maybe I am, but I have a reasonable reason on why Bernard is a nice GPP play.
For starters, the Broncos have one of the best, if not the best defense in the league. So, I don’t see their run-game [Jeremy Hill] being very efficient in this contest, which is why it will be Gio time in Cincy. He is a very talented pass-catcher and a great check-down option for Dalton. I also expect A.J. Green to have his hands full with this Broncos’ secondary, which is another reason why I’m on the Gio-train. He has a pretty low floor, but a high ceiling, which is why he’s a tournament only play for me.
Terrelle Pryor Sr.
CLE @ MIA
The Browns have lost Corey Colemen, two quarterbacks, and even a water boy. Unfortunately, they have had a rough going when it comes to injuries, which is why I like Pryor as a tournament play. He’s minimum wage and is now the No.1 receiver on this Browns’ offense. They are 10-point on the road against the Dolphins, so I expect Pryor to get a lot of opportunities to do something with the football.
