Injury Status: Week 3


The injury bug came roaring back last week with several players leaving the Week 2 game or getting injured during the game. It wasn't a good week for injuries as evident by this long list. The injury updates were pretty short last week but that isn't the case for Week 3. Hopefully, you weren't hit too badly by the injuries. Here is the latest. . . . . . Andrew Luck, QB, Colts . Luck still isn't practicing as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery. He is expected to miss another week of action, giving Jacoby Brissett another start at quarterback for the Colts. Jordan Reed, TE, Redskins . Reed missed practice Wednesday because of a shoulder injury and head coach Jay Gruden didn't sound overly optimistic about his status. Early reports were the injury was pretty minor, but that might not be the case. Keep an eye on the practice reports for the latest and get an option ready if Reed isn't able to go. Vernon Davis starts if Reed has to sit.

Lineup Prep: Week 3


Things evened out a little last week after a rough Week 1 for many elite fantasy players. This was expected, though. Things tend to even out with the top players. Same can be said for some lower level players off to big starts. It probably is a little early to sell high on some players, but it isn't too early to buy low on some guys. There are plenty of owners panicking after two weeks, looking to make a deal to shake up their roster. So if you want to go get a player off to a slow start that is likely to turn it around, go for it now. And here are my random thoughts for the week. . . . . . I continue to be amazed by NFL teams not investing more in offensive lines. The Seahawks, Giants and Texans are all teams that didn't do much in the offseason to improve their offensive lines and are struggling as a direct result. You can't pass or run successfully if you can't block. It is pretty simple. I'm worried about all offensive players on these teams because of that. Their lines need to turn it around in a hurry. The Rams are an example of a team that actually made moves along their line before the season and are seeing a direct result in their offense because of this.

Waivering: Week 3


The waiver wire is going to be a mixed bag this week. There are never sure things but this week seems to have a few more question marks than normal. We have some players coming off big games and a few others getting chances because of injury. The good news is there are some options and guys that could help going forward. Here are some players to consider for Week 3. QUARTERBACKS Trevor Siemian, Broncos . Siemian continued his hot start to the season, posting big numbers in Week 2. He has seven total touchdowns in two games. The Broncos offense is looking very good and Siemian seems to be gaining confidence each week. He is becoming a legit start for fantasy teams. And he is available in about 72 percent of leagues on our site.

Studs and Duds: Week 2


Well, that was a little more like it this week. Many of the stars that were duds last week played more like their usual selves this week. It was a welcome sight for many fantasy owners that struggled to score in Week 2. There were a lot of blowouts once again this week, but that means more fantasy points for a lot of teams. The games might not be great to watch for the most part, but at least some players are scoring big. Texans 13, Bengals 9 Fantasy Stud : Deshaun Watson . Watson didn't have a huge first NFL start, but led his team to victory and did a lot of damage on the ground. He was 15-of-24 passing for 125 yards, but didn't turn the ball over. He ran five time for 67 yards, including a 49-yard touchdown run that won the game. Watson could have some fantasy value once he starts making more plays in the passing game. He is an athlete that can make plays with his legs.
