Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Ravens. That leaves Buddy Howell and C.J. Prosise behind David Johnson in the pecking order. DJ will dominate backfield touches today.

Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) is not expected to play against the Ravens today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So David Johnson is a good bet to handle 100% of Houston's RB touches. He's a fine RB2, despite the tough matchup.

Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He's not a Week 2 fantasy option, but his absence would mean a few extra touches for RB David Johnson.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the 49ers. That leaves Breshad Perriman, Chris Hogan and Braxton Berrios as New York's likely top 3 WRs. Perriman is the best fantasy bet of the bunch, but consider him just a WR4. Crowder's absence boosts TE Chris Herndon's target projection.

The Bills have ruled out MLB Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder) and OLB Matt Milano (hamstring) for Sunday's game in Miami, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That elevates strong-side starter A.J. Klein to a full-time role and pushes Tyrel Dodson into Edmunds' starting spot. Each carries sleeper potential for deeper IDP leagues this week.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder missed practice Thursday with a hamstring injury. That's worrisome after Crowder was a limited participant Wednesday. We'll see about his participation level Friday and then game status for Sunday's clash with the 49ers.

Bills MLB Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder) put in a limited practice for the 2nd straight day Thursday. We had previously seen him as sitting out Wednesday, but Buffalo's official injury report has Edmunds limited in each practice so far. That's obviously good news for his chances of playing Sunday against Miami. LB Matt Milano, however, missed his 2nd straight practice Thursday with a hamstring injury. Milano looks like he's trending toward missing Week 2. Frankly, he'd look like a risky IDP option even if he makes it back for a limited Friday workout. LB A.J. Klein would likely see full playing time if Milano is inactive.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder was limited in practice Wednesday with a hamstring issue. Given that he practiced at all on a Wednesday, we're not too concerned about this situation. We'll certainly watch Crowder's participation the next 2 days, though.

Bills LBs Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder) and Matt Milano (hamstring) each missed practice Wednesday. Both players left Sunday's win over the Jets early and could be in jeopardy of missing this Sunday's visit to Miami. We'll watch their participation over the next 2 days. A.J. Klein -- the strong-side starter -- and Tyrel Dodson would benefit most in playing time if Edmunds and/or Milano can't go.

Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) is "a long shot" to play against the Ravens on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "However, playing in Week 3 is possible, an indication it’s not a serious injury," Rapoport adds. David Johnson will dominate backfield work for Houston in Week 2, which helps offset the tough matchup.

Bills MLB Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder) and weak-side LB Matt Milano (hamstring) each left in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's win over the Jets. We'll see about the status of each starter heading into Week 2.

Texans RB Duke Johnson has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Johnson's availability for Week 2 "is now in question," Schefter adds. We'll monitor Johnson's practice participation this coming week, but he was working clearly behind RB David Johnson before going down on Thursday night.

Texans RB Duke Johnson suffered a leg injury in Thursday night's opener in Kansas City and didn't return. We'll look for an update on his status. Johnson's absence would mean more work for RB David Johnson, who looked good in his Texans debut. Buddy Howell is currently the only other RB on the roster.

Broncos OLB Von Miller injured an ankle tendon near the end of practice Thursday and will require surgery. He'll miss the entire 2020 season, according to multiple reports. That leaves Denver without its top pass rusher. NFL Network's James Palmer adds that OLB Bradley Chubb "is going to continue to take some time to get to 100%" coming off last year's ACL tear. The Broncos don't look like a worrisome matchup for any of your offensive players in fantasy right now. And don't chase after the team defense.

The Bills on Thursday released K Stephen Hauschka. That means rookie K Tyler Bass appears to have won the job. Make sure you get the appropriate Bills kicker in your fantasy football drafts.

According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, Jets WRs coach Shawn Jefferson says WR Jamison Crowder "should exceed 90" receptions in his 2nd year with the team. It's always a little iffy to believe stat projections from coaches, but this one does speak to Crowder's opportunity upside. We have the Jets' slot man projected for 76 catches, but it's easy to see a path to Jefferson's number in a pass offense short on proven talent.

The Bills added Oregon State WR Isaiah Hodgins in the 6th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. This is 1 of our favorite sleepers in the 2020 WR class. Hodgins goes 6’4 and 210 pounds with 82nd percentile arm length. He ran a 4.61-second 40-yard dash at the Combine but registered a 64th percentile vertical, 74th percentile broad jump and 74th percentile short shuttle. Hodgins is a long, lanky receiver who wins at the catch point. He also has some of the best hands in this WR class, dropping just 1.7% of his catchable targets over the past 3 seasons. Hodgins broke out as a sophomore in 2018, leading the Beavers with 59 catches and 876 yards. Then he posted a big 86-1,171-13 line this past year, finishing top 18 in the country in all 3 marks. His 2.69 yards per route run ranked 13th among 30 of this year’s top WR prospects. Hodgins joins fellow rookie Gabriel Davis behind Stefon Diggs, John Brown and Cole Beasley on Buffalo’s WR depth chart. Consider him a deep dynasty stash.

The Bills added Central Florida WR Gabriel Davis in the 4th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Davis was a downfield dynamo last year, averaging 17.2 yards per catch and ranking 4th among all draft-eligible WRs in receptions (16) and yards (620) on targets 20+ yards downfield. There’s not much else to Davis’ game right now — but he just turned 21 earlier this month and goes 6’2, 216 pounds. He’s an intriguing project for the Bills and could eventually replace John Brown, who’s 30 and signed through 2021.

The Bills added Zack Moss to the backfield in the 3rd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Moss was the Utes’ lead back for his final 3 years on campus, topping 1,000 rushing yards each season and averaging 5.9 yards per carry. That includes career highs in carries (235), yards (1,416) and TDs (15) this past year. Moss was a tackle-breaking machine, ranking 2nd among draft-eligible backs with 89 missed tackles forced and 8th with 1,042 yards after contact, per Pro Football Focus. He’s also good in the passing game, totaling 65 catches for 681 yards (10.5 YPC) and 3 TDs over the past 3 seasons. He ranked 10th in yards per route run among draft-eligible RBs. Moss looks like a subpar athlete on tape, though, and registered a 28th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine. He also carries a lengthy injury history, missing time in college with toe, knee and shoulder issues. We heard one scout compare Moss to a poor man’s Eddie Lacy. He figures to be the ‘thunder’ to Devin Singletary’s ‘lightning’ in Buffalo’s backfield.

The Bills selected Iowa DE A.J. Epenesa in the 2nd round of the NFL Draft. Epenesa delivered strong production in college, with 30.5 tackles for loss and 22 sacks over his 2 seasons as a starter -- plus 6 pass deflections and 8 forced fumbles. But then Epenesa went to the Combine and posted a 40 time that would have been unimpressive for a DT. He looks slow on tape as well, winning on power rather than beating tackles around the edge. Epenesa goes to a well-coached defense in Buffalo, though, and might present the versatility to play some DE and DT. Buffalo signed a similar player in free agency: Quinton Jefferson from Seattle. We're not excited about Epenesa's fantasy outlook, but he'll find a place in dynasty rookie drafts.
