  Ravens | Week 2 Baltimore Ravens inactives    Sun Sep 19, 06:59 PM

The Baltimore Ravens have declared OT Ronnie Stanley, DE Daelin Hayes, CB Jimmy Smith, DL Derek Wolfe and DT Broderick Washington inactive for Week 2.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs pass rush from the edge will be relentless with Stanley out. Alejandro Villanueva will move to left tackle, but he was a turnstile last week against the Raiders.

  Browns | Nick Chubb just misses triple digits    Sun Sep 19, 06:40 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 11 times for 95 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Houston Texans, and he added a three-yard catch on his only target.

Footballguys view: Chubb was quiet until a late touchdown finished the win. Considering the bloodbath at running back so far this year, you're happy with what you've gotten from Chubb. He'll face a tough Bears defense next week.

  Panthers | D.J. Moore plays well in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 06:39 PM

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore caught eight passes for 79 yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2. He was targeted 11 times during the game.

Footballguys view: Moore, not former teammate Robby Anderson, has quickly become Sam Darnold's favorite wide receiver. Consider Moore a high floor WR2 going into a creampuff matchup with the Texans.

  Panthers | Christian McCaffrey reaches end zone    Sun Sep 19, 06:35 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed for 72 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2. He also caught five passes for 65 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: McCaffrey has been worthy of the #1 overall pick in PPR leagues but is still putting up floor games because of how often he has been tackled inside the five. He should have a chance to score multiple times next week against the Texans.

  Falcons | Russell Gage nursing an ankle injury    Sun Sep 19, 06:32 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the second half due to an ankle injury and he is questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Gage returned, but later left hurt again. Olamide Zaccheaus is the next man up at wide receiver.

  Panthers | Sam Darnold throws for over 300 yards    Sun Sep 19, 06:30 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Sam Darnold went 26-for-38 for 305 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Darnold was red hot early and had no trouble with the Saints defense that made Aaron Rodgers and the Packers look feeble last week. He'll get the bottom dwelling Texans defense next week.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield totals two touchdowns    Sun Sep 19, 06:17 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 19-of-21 passes for 213 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 2 against the Houston Texans, and he also ran eight times for 10 yards and a score.

Footballguys view: Mayfield was outstanding against the poor Texans defense even though he didn't have Jarvis Landry for most of the game and Odell Beckham was out. Mayfield also shrugged off a hard hit when he was defending on his interception. He'll face the Bears next week but is only viable in 2QB/Superflex leagues.

  Bears | Andy Dalton may have avoided ACL injury    Sun Sep 19, 06:15 PM

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton's (knee) knee injury is not believed to be an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Matt Nagy. Dalton is scheduled to undergo an MRI Monday, Sept. 20.

Footballguys view: Either way, Justin Fields will have to fail miserably to give this job back. Fields running ability was a welcome addition and the Browns should have trouble corralling him next week if Dalton can't go.

  Texans | Brandin Cooks scores in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 06:08 PM

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks posted nine receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Cooks was able to score with Davis Mills in, but most of his production came with Tyrod Taylor. downgrade to Mills for Week 3 makes him a tough start against the resurgent Carolina defense.

  Saints | Juwan Johnson quiet in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 05:59 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Juwan Johnson caught one pass for 23 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. He was targeted three times during the game.

Footballguys view: Johnson's Week 1 was a fluke, but don't forget about him in deep TE premium dynasty leagues.

  Texans | Mark Ingram doesn't do much in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 05:53 PM

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 41 yards in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns and he had one catch for minus-1 yard on two targets.

Footballguys view: Ingram is going to lead this backfield in touches if he stays healthy, but without Tyrod Taylor, there's not going to be room for him to run. He's just an end of the bench emergency play at best and not worth carrying in short bench leagues.

  Steelers | Diontae Johnson helped off the field    Sun Sep 19, 05:44 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (lower body) suffered an apparent lower-body injury on the final play of the Week 2 game against the Las Vegas Raiders, and he was helped off the field by two members of the training staff.

Footballguys view: It really sucks to see Johnson go out on a meaningless play, as the Steelers were down nine and had no chance to win. James Washington would be the next man up, but Juju Smith-Schuster would be the main fantasy beneficiary of a long Johnson absence as the Steelers pass offense is limited to the horizontal dimension.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara held to 30 total yards    Sun Sep 19, 05:37 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for five yards on eight carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. He also caught four passes for 25 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: It's time to get worried about Kamara as the Saints Week 1 outburst appears to be based more on the Packers morose approach to the game than the Saints offense turning the corner with Jameis Winston. Kamara still has to be in your lineup against the Patriots next week but Bill Belichick will certainly look to take Kamara away and force the Saints to rely on other players to hang in the game.

  Texans | Tyrod Taylor set for MRI, out Week 3    Sun Sep 19, 05:36 PM

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) will have an MRI Monday, Sept. 20, on the injured hamstring he suffered in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns. He has been ruled out for the Week 3 game against the Carolina Panthers, a Thursday game.

Footballguys view: That's early to be ruled out for next week. The Panthers defense is hot and now they'll get to face Davis Mills in his first NFL start.

  Saints | Jameis Winston struggles in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 05:23 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston went 11-for-22 for 111 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. He also rushed for 19 yards and one touchdown on three carries.

Footballguys view: Taysom Hill watch is on. The Saints were without their starting center, Erik McCoy, and couldn't get anything going in either aspect of the game. Bill Belichick and the Patriots are up in an ominous sign for the Saints offense. The Packers must have really phoned it in last week.

  Eagles | Jalen Hurts does it with his feet    Sun Sep 19, 05:22 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 12-of-23 passes for 190 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, while running 10 times for a game-high 82 yards and a score.

Footballguys view: Hurts late rushing touchdown saved his fantasy day. He has been a fantasy QB1 so far through two games and should be in lineups against the Cowboys next week.

  Eagles | Miles Sanders posts mediocre line    Sun Sep 19, 05:15 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders ended up with 13 carries for 55 yards in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he added one grab for four yards on two targets.

Footballguys view: Sanders wasn't the problem with the Eagles offense, but he wasn't the solution either. He looks like a middling fantasy RB2 at best, but he should have ample chance to bounce back against the Cowboys next week.

  Jets | Braxton Berrios plays well in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 05:07 PM

New York Jets WR Braxton Berrios caught seven passes for 73 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 2. He was targeted 11 times during the game.

Footballguys view: Berrios, not Corey Davis was the leading receiver for the Jets. Some of this had to be Bill Belichick taking away a quarterback's comfort zone, especially a rookie quarterback, but Vic Fangio won't show any mercy next week. There is no one in the Jets offense that we can trust.

  Eagles | DeVonta Smith crashes back to Earth    Sun Sep 19, 05:03 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeVonta Smith posted two receptions for 16 yards on seven targets in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: The Eagles passing game was held in check facing someone other than the Falcons. Smith will have a chance to bounce back against the Cowboys next week and should be considered a what the heck flex.

  Jets | Michael Carter leads team in rushing    Sun Sep 19, 05:00 PM

New York Jets RB Michael Carter rushed for 59 yards on 11 carries against the New England Patriots in Week 2. He also caught two passes for 29 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Carter looked like the best back in the Jets backfield and certainly deserving of a waiver wire pickup in deeper leagues if he was dropped after a lackluster Week 1. We'll see how long it takes for the Jets to narrow the running back committee and give Carter more work off of this performance.

  Eagles | Quez Watkins tops the charts in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 04:54 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Quez Watkins posted two receptions for 117 yards in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers. He has a 91-yard non-scoring play, and that was the fifth-longest play in franchise history.

Footballguys view: Watkins speed is translating, so he's going be a mainstay in an already crowded low ceiling Eagles passing game. It's good for the team, but bad for fantasy football.

  Jets | Zach Wilson throws four INTs    Sun Sep 19, 04:53 PM

New York Jets QB Zach Wilson went 19-for-33 for 210 yards, zero touchdowns and four interceptions against the New England Patriots in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Wilson's debut vs. Bill Belichick went as expected. It's difficult to evaluate him without much of an offensive line, but the running game was better this week. Things don't get much easier for Wilson next week against Denver.

  Patriots | Nelson Agholor held in check    Sun Sep 19, 04:50 PM

New England Patriots WR Nelson Agholor caught three passes for 21 yards against the New York Jets in Week 2. He was targeted three times during the game.

Footballguys view: Agholor came back to earth after a strong Week 1 against Miami. He's just bye/injury/emergency depth at wide receiver, although he could be a decent play vs. the Saints next week if Marshon Lattimore is out for a second straight week.

  Patriots | Jonnu Smith quiet in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 04:43 PM

New England Patriots TE Jonnu Smith caught four passes for 28 yards against the New York Jets in Week 2. He was targeted five times during the game.

Footballguys view: The Patriots pass offense is not going to be high volume and Mac Jones is going to spread the ball around with conservative passing. Smith is just a bye/injury option at tight end.

  49ers | Just one grab for Brandon Aiyuk    Sun Sep 19, 04:35 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk was active in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but he had just one catch for six yards on two targets.

Footballguys view: Aiyuk is just a bench stash at this point and definitely a drop in short bench leagues. He might be out of the doghouse, but he's not going to show up in the box score.

  Patriots | James White involved in run, pass game    Sun Sep 19, 04:28 PM

New England Patriots RB James White rushed for 20 yards and one touchdown on five carries against the New York Jets in Week 2. He also caught six passes for 45 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: White finished a drive and he was the steadiest target for Mac Jones in a budding passing game relationship. Consider him a good PPR flex play against the Saints next week with the potential to level off as a fantasy RB2.

  49ers | Deebo Samuel flirts with century mark    Sun Sep 19, 04:25 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel registered six receptions for a team-high 93 yards on eight targets in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Samuel was the clear #1 receiver for the 49ers as Brandon Aiyuk was still just a complementary piece in the passing game. Samuel is a solid fantasy WR2 heading into a matchup with the Packers.

  Patriots | Damien Harris reaches end zone    Sun Sep 19, 04:24 PM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris rushed for 62 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries against the New York Jets in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Rhamondre Stevenson was inactive so any worries about Harris losing work after fumbling the game away last week was not hovering over this game. Harris will face the Saints next week.

  49ers | Trey Sermon evaluated for head injury    Sun Sep 19, 04:23 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Trey Sermon (head) exited the Week 2 game in the second half against the Philadelphia Eagles due to a head injury, and he is being evaluated for concussion.

Footballguys view: Sermon had a good carry before the injury and should get another chance as soon as he can play again, although the 49ers clearly prefer Elijah Mitchell right now. Sermon is worth holding unless you're in a short bench league. Look for the 49ers to possibly sign a veteran back this week.

  49ers | Elijah Mitchell cools off in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 04:10 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell rushed 17 times for 42 yards in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles and he was targeted twice, hauling in each for 11 yards.

Footballguys view: Mitchell was stopped just short of the goal line on one attempt and also left the game with a shoulder injury. The 49ers gave Mitchell the clear lead back job and nothing that happened today would change that when Mitchell is healthy again even though he was inefficient against a stout Eagles run defense. He'll try to get healthy for the matchup against Green Bay while Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys will face the Eagles next week.

  49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo totals two TDs in win    Sun Sep 19, 04:07 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo completed 22-of-30 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions while also running for 20 yards and a score in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Things didn't come as easily as they did last week against the weak Lions defense, but Garoppolo made enough plays to keep the Trey Lance talk at bay. The 49ers move to 2-0 with the Packers up next.

  Colts | Carson Wentz suffers injury    Sun Sep 19, 03:53 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz (leg) left the Week 2 game early after suffering an apparent leg injury. QB Jacob Eason entered the game in place of Wentz.

Footballguys view: Wentz was playing well against a tough defense other than a first half red zone miscue. The Colts fell to 0-2 and face their competition to win the division, the Titans, next week, possibly with Jacob Eason starting after Eason immediately threw an interception to lose the game this week.

  Browns | Jarvis Landry injury update    Sun Sep 19, 03:44 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) is believed to have suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament during the Week 2 game, according to a source. He is scheduled to undergo more testing.

Footballguys view: This could be a multi-week injury for Landry and we don't know Odell Beckham's status for next week. It's possible if not likely that Donovan Peoples-Jones, Anthony Schwartz, and Rashard Higgins will be the top three Falcons receivers next week against the Bears.

  Rams | Darrell Henderson injured    Sun Sep 19, 03:41 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (rib) suffered a rib injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.

  49ers | Elijah Mitchell injures shoulder    Sun Sep 19, 03:27 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.

  Titans | Taylor Lewan injured during warmups    Sun Sep 19, 02:57 PM

Tennessee Titans OT Taylor Lewan (leg) has been declared inactive for the Week 2 game after suffering a leg injury during pregame warmups.

Footballguys view: The Titans couldn't keep Chandler Jones out of the backfield last week. Now they will have to contend with the Seahawks pass rush without their anchor left tackle.

  Texans | Danny Amendola injured    Sun Sep 19, 02:54 PM

Houston Texans WR Danny Amendola (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 2 game and will not return.

  Texans | Tyrod Taylor injures hamstring    Sun Sep 19, 02:44 PM

Houston Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 2 game and will not return.

  Raiders | Alex Leatherwood will not return    Sun Sep 19, 02:39 PM

Las Vegas Raiders OT Alex Leatherwood (oblique) suffered an oblique injury during the Week 2 game and will not return.

  Steelers | T.J. Watt suffers injury    Sun Sep 19, 02:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB T.J. Watt (groin) suffered a groin injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Watt is probably the most important player on the Steelers roster. The team was keeping him, Melvin Ingram and Alex Highsmith all fresh with a three-man rotation, but won't be able to employ that for the rest of the game. Watt hasn't been ruled out, but was seen on the sidelines without his helmet when the Raiders had the ball.

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.

Jacksonville Jaguars TE James O'Shaughnessy (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have declared CB Joe Haden, LB Devin Bush, DT Carlos Davis, QB Dwayne Haskins and OG Rashaad Coward inactive for Week 2.
