Everson Griffen, DE MIN

1 hour ago

Griffen won't play Week 4

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer said Tuesday that DE Everson Griffen will not travel with the team for Thursday night's game against the Rams, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Griffen will instead stay behind to work through recent mental-health issues, which currently have him hospitalized. We'll see how long Griffen remains out. IDP owners should plan as though we'll miss Griffen for at least a few weeks. Stephen Weatherly stepped in to play 76% of the snaps in the loss to Buffalo, but we wouldn't use him against a much tougher Rams front.

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer said Tuesday that there's a "possibility" RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) plays against the Rams on Thursday night. We'll track his practice participation over the next couple days. If active, Cook will be worth getting back into fantasy lineups against a beatable L.A. run defense.

Raiders K Mike Nugent has a hip injury and is in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Browns, according to insider Michael Gehlken. Oakland figures to add a K over the next couple of days, but this is a situation to avoid in Week 4 fantasy lineups.

The Packers rotated 3 RBs in Week 3, and it sounds like that'll remain the game plan going forward. "I really like the rotation of having all three guys because they’re distinctly different, but all three can play all three downs, and that says a lot," HC Mike McCarthy said. "We’ve never had this situation where you have three guys that can play three downs like that, so this will really help us moving forward." Jamaal Williams led the way with a 43% snap rate in last week's loss to the Redskins. Ty Montgomery was next at 29%, and Aaron Jones played 25% of the snaps. The touches went Montgomery 10, Williams 7 and Jones 7. There will be more work to go around when the Packers aren't playing from behind like they were in Week 3. But this committee might make all 3 guys tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Vikings DE Everson Griffen "has been dealing for weeks with a serious, personal health-related issue." The team is aware of the issue and reportedly working with Griffen on it. GM Rick Spielman said in a statement that the Vikings are "certainly concerned by what we have heard" and that they are "currently focused on Everson's well-being and providing the appropriate support for him and his family." KSTP-TV in Minneapolis reports that Griffen was involved in a Saturday incident at a hotel where he allegedly threatened hotel staff. Connecting the dots here, it sounds like Griffen has some mental-health issues to work through and could be facing criminal charges. We'll see what comes of the situation and how it affects his availability for IDP lineups. If you own Griffen in fantasy, go ahead and seek some roster insurance.

Rams CB Aqib Talib will miss at least a month after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Chargers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That doesn't impact IDP lineups, but it takes a good starting corner out of the Rams' defense for a while. Combine that with CB Marcus Peters' calf strain and the quick turnaround to play the Vikings this Thursday night, and the L.A. defense faces a decent challenge. That'll be good news for Kirk Cousins owners. We're not downgrading the Rams' team D for fantasy purposes on this news, though.

Cardinals HC Steve Wilks named QB Josh Rosen his new starter on Monday. The rookie entered late in the 4th quarter of Sunday's loss to the Bears, completing 4 of 7 passes for 36 yards and an INT. He can't be worse than Sam Bradford, though, who's averaged 5.0 yards per attempt with 2 TDs and 4 INTs through 3 weeks. That said, with a leaky offensive line, thin weaponry and questionable play-calling, Rosen isn't a fantasy option right now.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson has a sprained right ankle, HC Jay Gruden said Monday. Washington has a well-timed Week 4 bye, and Gruden expects Peterson to be ready to face the Saints the following weekend. The 33-year-old has already racked up 56 carries -- 3rd most league-wide.
