Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that "everything is looking great" in QB Tony Romo's recovery from his August back injury. Romo threw some passes in warm-ups before the Week 2 game at Washington, though the team has yet to give an expected return date. The Oct. 30 meeting with Philadelphia -- which follows the Cowboys' bye -- might be a realistic target. We'll certainly keep an eye for any updates on Romo's status and return. In the meantime, Dak Prescott remains a relevant fantasy QB -- especially in a positive Week 3 home matchup with the Bears.
The Packers have ruled OLB Clay Matthews (ankle, hamstring) and S Morgan Burnett (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Lions. That certainly hurts the team D, though it doesn't eliminate the unit's DFS upside as a heavy home favorite against an offense that scored only 15 points vs. Tennessee in Week 2.
The Browns placed K Patrick Murray on IR and signed K Cody Parkey. Given the question marks with Cleveland’s offense, it's best to avoid this situation in fantasy. Parkey, however, has hit 87.5% of his FG attempts in his young career.
Lions DE Devin Taylor (ankle) returned for a limited practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. We'll have to keep an eye on his status through the weekend after he popped up on the Thursday injury report.
The Lions on Friday ruled out DE Ezekiel Ansah (high ankle sprain) for Sunday's game against the Packers. That comes as no surprise after the week he had. OLB DeAndre Levy (quad) is also doubtful for the game. He hasn't practiced since Week 1 and missed last Sunday's game against the Titans.
Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the 49ers after missing practice all week. HC Pete Carroll suggested Friday morning that Rawls could be a game-time decision, but the "doubtful" tag suggests that he's a long shot. That leaves the backfield to Christine Michael in a great spot vs. a 49ers defense that gave up 100 yards to Fozzy Whittaker last week.
Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) didn't practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Colts. That moves rookie TE Hunter Henry into the lead role. He's an intriguing DFS flier in a plus matchup, but you should be able to do better in season-long leagues.
The Lions listed TE Eric Ebron (back) as questionable for this weekend's game against the Packers. He put in a limited practice on Thursday and a full workout on Friday, so he should be good to go. Ebron is a solid TE1 vs. a Green Bay defense that allowed TE TDs in both of its first 2 games.
Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets. There was early-week optimism, but Charles remained limited in practice all week. We'll see if he can get ready for Week 4. Spencer Ware gets another game as the lead back. He's a fine RB2, despite a tough matchup.
Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chargers. He was limited on Thursday and didn’t practice at all on Friday. HC Chuck Pagano said afterward that Hilton got the day off because he was sore. He’s fully expected to play on Sunday but probably won’t be at 100%. It adds some risk to his profile, but we’d keep him in fantasy lineups.
