Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll be back for Sunday night’s game vs. the Steelers. Meyers posted a big 9-81-2 line in the opener and is on the WR3 radar for Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Raiders WR Davante Adams is not listed on the final Week 3 injury report. He was on there on Wednesday, but it looks like he was never diagnosed with a concussion. Regardless, Adams will be ready to rock vs. the Steelers on Sunday night.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) was upgaded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He's on track to return for Sunday night's game vs. the Steelers.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He still has some work to do to clear the concussion protocol. We'll update Meyers' status again tomorrow.

Raiders WR Davante Adams was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He's listed on the injury report, "Gameday concussion protocol evaluation." We've never seen that before. Regardless, Adams is on track to play vs. the Steelers this weekend.

Raiders HC Josh McDaniels said Monday that WR Jakobi Meyers is "headed in the right direction" as he moves through the league concussion protocol. That indicates optimism the WR will be ready for Week 3. We'll continue to track Meyers' progress this week. He's worth grabbing where available ahead of his return, though, after a big Week 1 receiving line.

Raiders HC Josh McDaniels deemed WR Davante Adams "good" on Monday, according to ESPN's Field Yates. Adams left Sunday's loss to Buffalo late for a concussion check after a big hit. But he clearly passed the testing. Symptoms sometimes surface a couple of days after the injury, and we'll certainly be watching for any further updates. But Adams should be ready for Week 3.

Raiders WR Davante Adams took a shot to the head in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Bills. He went into the blue medical tent and then back to the locker room, presumably to be checked for a concussion. We'll update Adams' status when we know more.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (foot) is not listed on the final Week 2 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday after taking Wednesday off. Adams should be at his usual target-hogging ways vs. the Bills this weekend.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Buffalo. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 3 after his big opener. Meyers' absence would seem to present opportunity for WR Hunter Renfrow, but Renfrow played exactly as little (13 snaps, nine routes) as WR Kristian Wilkerson in Week 1. So we're not looking to get the veteran slot man into fantasy lineups this week. Here's hoping you don't need any Raiders WR beyond Davante Adams, who could be in for a huge target share this week.

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison mustered just 28 scoreless yards on eight carries (3.5 YPC) in Thursday night’s loss to the Eagles. He turned six targets into three catches and 11 yards. Mattison has now totaled 83 yards on 25 touches through two games this season — an ugly 3.3 yards per touch. He hasn’t gotten much help from his offensive line but also hasn’t made much happen on his own. Mattison continued to dominate the backfield work vs. Philadelphia, with RB Ty Chandler getting just one carry and two targets. But we could see Chandler’s role grow if Mattison doesn’t start producing more. Mattison's RB2 status is on very shaky ground.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's not going to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Bills. Meyers' absence figures to mean an even heavier reliance on WR Davante Adams in Buffalo.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (foot) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He'll be ready to rock on Sunday vs. the Bills. Adams figures to be leaned on even more heavily than usual with WR Jakobi Meyers likely out with his concussion.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. That's not a good start for his chances of being cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Bills. We'll update Meyers' progress again tomorrow, but he should be on fantasy benches for now.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (foot) did not practice on Wednesday. The Athletic's Vic Tafur tweeted that Adams appeared to be fine, so it looks like this was more of a rest day for the 30-year-old. We'll see if Adams gets back on the field tomorrow.

Raiders HC Josh McDaniels confirmed on Monday that WR Jakobi Meyers is in the concussion protocol. That leaves him no better than 50/50 for Week 2. Meyers was awesome before sustaining that head injury in the win over Denver, hauling in nine of 10 targets for 81 yards and two TDs. Even though he might not be available this coming week, Meyers should be scooped off the waiver wire in fantasy leagues of 10+ teams.

Raiders WR Davante Adams was relatively quiet in Sunday's season-opening win over the Broncos, catching six balls for 66 scoreless yards. He dealt with tough coverage from All-Pro CB Patrick Surtain for much of the contest. The good news is that Adams drew nine targets -- a big 34.6% share on a day when QB Jimmy Garoppolo threw it just 26 times. Adams won't have many tougher matchups than this one going forward. And he'll remain a fantasy WR1 if he continues to see that type of volume.

Vikings RB Alexander Mattison out-carried Ty Chandler 11-3 in Sunday’s loss to Tampa Bay. Mattison didn’t find much room to run, but he salvaged his day with an excellent individual effort on a goal-line receiving TD. Mattison also ran 22 routes to only 7 for Chandler, so there’s no concern over the passing-game role. Week 2 brings a tough matchup with Philly, but Mattison will remain an RB2. Keep Chandler stashed as a high-value handcuff.

"Do not underestimate the Vikings’ commitment to [RB Alexander] Mattison," The Athletic's Alec Lewis writes. "The team believes in him and it believes he is a key cog in their attempt at improved rushing efficiency. Mattison might not provide the explosive element that [RB Dalvin] Cook possesses, but the Vikings are committed to providing him an every-down workload." Mattison isn't the most exciting talent, but everything we've heard from Minnesota since Cook's departure is that Mattison is in for big volume this year. He's a solid pick in the fifth or sixth round of fantasy drafts.

Raiders WR Davante Adams is "trending in the right direction" after going down with a lower-leg injury on August 11, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. "Should be on the practice field soon, depending how Las Vegas wants to manage him," Fowler adds. It doesn't sound like Adams is in any danger of missing the start of the regular season, but we'll continue to keep a close eye on his status.

Update: HC Josh McDaniels says Adams is returning to practice Wednesday, per Tashan Reed of The Athletic.
