ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) "likely" to play against the Falcons today. "But team wants to test him in pre-game warmups before making any final decision on his status," Schefter adds. Mack only got in a limited practice on Friday, although the Indianapolis media always seemed optimistic about his Week 3 availability. We'll get his official game status by noon ET. If active, Mack will be a risk/reward RB2.

The Browns have placed LB Christian Kirksey on IR with his chest injury. Kirksey is reportedly still getting opinions on how to treat the injury, which is believed to be a torn pectoral muscle

Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Falcons. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after missing the first 2 workouts of the week. The Indianapolis media seems to be optimistic about Mack's chances of playing vs. Atlanta. We'll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, Mack will be a risk/reward RB2. If not, Jordan Wilkins figures to serve as the Colts' lead back, with Nyheim Hines also playing an increased role.

Browns OLB Christian Kirksey will miss at least Sunday night's game against the Rams with a chest injury he suffered in Week 2, Cleveland.com reports. HC Freddie Kitchens said Thursday that they're still evaluating the injury and wouldn't specify. The concern is that Kirksey tore a pectoral muscle. Cleveland.com reports he might need surgery. We'll keep an eye on Kirksey's situation. Rookie Mack Wilson will start in his place against the Rams and is worth adding in deeper IDP leagues. Kirksey was playing full-time snaps before the injury, and Wilson enjoyed a strong preseason.

Jaguars WR Chris Conley is questionable to return to Thursday night's game against the Titans with what the team announced as an ankle injury. He rolled his ankle and hyper-extended his knee on the same play. We'll update Conley's status when we learn more.

Update: Conley returned later in the 2nd quarter.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) missed practice again on Thursday. He's now in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Falcons -- although insider George Bremer believes there's still a "decent chance" Mack plays. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow, but fantasy owners need to be making backup plans. Jordan Wilkins figures to serve as the Colts' lead ball carrier if Mack sits.

Colts RB Marlon Mack was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday with a calf injury. The team only had a walkthrough, so it's an estimate of Mack's participation. This obviously bears monitoring over the next couple of days, though. Mack's absence would leave Jordan Wilkins as the Colts' lead ball-carrier, with Nyheim Hines potentially playing an expanded role.

Buccaneers HC Bruce Arians said Friday that Dare Ogunbowale is making "a real strong case" to be the team's #3 RB, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic. "He's probably our second-best pass protector," Arians added. The 3rd Tampa RB isn't a high-upside spot for fantasy, but it at least sounds like you shouldn't bother considering undrafted rookie Bruce Anderson in any redraft format. We'll see how the backfield sorts out.

Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton (hamstring) returned to practice on Sunday. He ends up missing about a week and a half. Barring a setback, Hamilton is still in line to open the season as a top-3 WR for Denver.

Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton injured his hamstring on Wednesday and isn't practicing on Thursday, according to insider Mike Klis. We'll see how long this injury keeps him sidelined, but Hamilton's fantasy stock was already trending down with WR Emmanuel Sanders seemingly on track to be ready for Week 1.

ESPN's Mike DiRocco says Chris Conley "has been the best receiver during OTAs and minicamp" for the Jaguars. The free-agent signee played briefly with new QB Nick Foles in Kansas City, but the bigger factor working in his favor is Marqise Lee's slow return from an August 2018 knee injury. Lee isn't expected to return until "several weeks into training camp." That could clear a path for Conley to enter the season among the top 2 wideouts for the Jaguars. And DiRocco says they "don't have a clear No. 1." We'd bet on Dede Westbrook leading the group in fantasy scoring, but Conley makes sense as a late-round pick in current best-ball drafting.

The Jaguars have added WR Chris Conley. He's a size/speed freak at 6'2, 213 pounds with a 97th percentile SPARQ score. But Conley never earned a significant role in Kansas City, totaling 104 catches over the past 4 seasons. He joins a relatively unsettled WR corps in Jacksonville alongside Dede Westbrook, D.J. Chark, Marqise Lee and Keelan Cole. Conley will be worth monitoring this summer.

WR Phillip Dorsett has re-signed with the Patriots on a 1-year deal. The former 1st-rounder evolved into a short-range target in New England last season, hauling in 76.2% of his targets but averaging just 9.1 yards per catch. He has a shot to take on a bigger role in 2019 with Chris Hogan a free agent and Cordarrelle Patterson off to Chicago. But we'd bet on the Pats making some additions to their WR room.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (neck) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. He shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups in his 1st action since Week 3, but we’re curious to see how much work he steals from Sony Michel and James White.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He’ll continue to operate as Indy’s lead ball-carrier but is a low-end RB2 in the tough matchup.

The Colts expect RB Marlon Mack to play today against the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mack put in full practices Thursday and Friday but will need to gain clearance to complete the concussion protocol before he can take the field. We'll update his status closer to game time.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars. He put in full practices and Thursday and Friday and just needs to gain clearance from an independent neurologist. Mack can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now. Just check back around noon ET on Sunday to make sure he’s active.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He's now trending toward getting cleared for this weekend's game against the Jaguars. An active Mack will remain the Colts' lead ball-carrier and a fine RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) was back on the practice field on Thursday. He'll likely be listed as limited and still needs to gain final clearance -- but this at least gives him a shot to play against the Jaguars on Sunday. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through and isn't looking like a good bet to play against the Jaguars this weekend. That'd leave the backfield to Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins.
