Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is "more than likely" to play against the Seahawks today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Murray only put in a limited practice on Friday after exiting last weekend's game. This hamstring has been bothering him for over a month now. Don't be surprised if his snaps are limited today considering RB Derrick Henry has out-played him so far this year anyway. We'd try not to use Murray in Week 3 fantasy lineups. Consider Henry a RB3 with lots of upside.
Ravens RB Terrance West (thigh) is active for this morning's game against the Jaguars. Between the injury and the tough matchup, he's a risky Week 3 fantasy play without much upside. Buck Allen remains the best bet in Baltimore's backfield.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Washington TE Jordan Reed will be a "game-time call ... but is more unlikely to play" Sunday night against the Raiders. Schefter calls it a rib injury, though various reports have also said shoulder and sternum this week. Bottom line: Reed looks very iffy. If you don't have a better option than waiting on him, then you need to at least grab Vernon Davis as insurance.
Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) is out for Monday night's game against the Cowboys. He didn't practice all week and remains without a timetable for return. Brown is droppable in shallower fantasy leagues.
Cardinals TE Jermaine Gresham is questionable for Monday night's game with a rib injury. Gresham missed Week 2 with the ailment but put in limited practices all week. He's not worth waiting for in any but the deepest of fantasy football leagues this time around.
Cardinals WR J.J. Nelson is questionable for Monday night's game against the Cowboys. He put in limited practices all week while dealing with a hamstring injury. We'd bet on him playing, but you'll need to secure insurance if you plan to wait for him. The issue obviously adds risk to an already risk/reward speedster.
Cardinals ILB Deone Bucannon is expected to make his season debut Monday against the Cowboys. According to Mike Jurecki of 98.7 FM in Arizona, Bucannon will be on a snap count in his return game. The veteran put in limited practices all week and missed the full offseason, training camp and preseason following ankle surgery. Karlos Dansby remains the only usable Cardinals ILB in IDP leagues.
Rams HC Sean McVay said Friday that S Lamarcus Joyner will be day-to-day next week after he suffered a hamstring strain in Thursday night's win over the Niners. Joyner left in the 2nd quarter and did not return. He had gotten off to a nice start for IDP owners but will be droppable for a replacement in most leagues if he's set to miss Week 4 (or more).
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero hears that Vikings QB Sam Bradford does not have any structural damage in his left knee. "Bradford did not have a setback this week," Pelissero reports. "The knee just did not improve all that much ... the knee remains painful." We still don't know exactly what the issue is -- or when Bradford will be able to return to game action. The good news is that it sounds like more of a week-to-week deal than a season-ender.
