The Chargers list S Derwin James (hamstring) as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Raiders. The team has also rule backup S JT Woods out. That seems to leave second-year S Raheem Layne as the fill-in. Layne has played just 27 total snaps so far in the NFL. We’re not projecting him for Week 4. We did give Chargers S Alohi Gilman a slight boost in projected tackles. Check out our updated Week 4 DB rankings.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Barring a setback, he should be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. RB Justice Hill (foot) remained sidelined on Wednesday. His absence on Sunday would again leave Melvin Gordon as Baltimore's No. 2 RB.

Chargers S Derwin James left Sunday's win over the Vikings with a hamstring injury. After the game, James called it "nothing major, nothing to be concerned about," according to The Athletic's Daniel Popper. James also said he'll know more after a Monday MRI. We'll see what the testing reveals.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert went 40 for 47 passing in Sunday's win over the Vikings, racking up 405 yards and 3 TDs. (WR Keenan Allen threw for the team's other TD.) L.A. dropped back on 75.8% of offensive plays, clearly committing to the pass from the start. Herbert had 30 pass attempts by halftime, vs. seven total run plays for the team in that time. Look for this team to continue leaning pass going forward, though likely not to the degree most weeks that it did against the Vikings.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards carried the ball 11 times for 51 yards before leaving Week 3 with a concussion. Teammate Melvin Gordon III came in relief to record 32 yards on 10 carries. The Edwards injury was a big blow to Baltimore, a team that was already without RB Justice Hill due to a foot injury. Fantasy managers will have to keep an eye on the injury reports this week to see who is healthy enough to suit up in Week 4 vs. the Browns.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards left to get checked for a concussion in the second half of Sunday's game vs. the Colts. That leaves the backfield to Melvin Gordon and Kenyan Drake. We'll update Edwards' status when we know more.

Seahawks TE Will Dissly (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Panthers. His absence is a slight boost to TE Noah Fant.

Chargers Edge Joey Bosa (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Vikings. He played through the injury last week as well. Bosa saw his playing time significantly limited in that contest but still delivered 2 sacks. He belongs in most IDP lineups.

Seahawks TE Will Dissly (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game vs. the Panthers. He’s seen just five targets through two weeks, so there’s minimal fantasy impact here.

Texans LB Denzel Perryman missed Wednesday's practice with a hand injury. We're not concerned yet. Perryman played every snap of Sunday's loss to the Colts. But we'll track his status throughout the week. S Jalen Pitre remained out of practice as well following his Week 1 lung bruise. Pitre missed Week 2. We'll see about his status for Sunday.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (hamstring) is active for tonight's game vs. the Saints. HC Frank Reich said Saturday that Chark could be on a snap count coming off that hamstring injury, so he should only be used as a flier in DFS tournaments.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 27 passes on 41 attempts for 305 passing yards with 2 TD and no INTs in Week 2’s OT loss vs. the Titans. How the Chargers continue to find themselves in such close games on a consistent basis is beyond us. Fortunately, that’s more of a problem for real-life football. Even without RB Austin Ekeler (ankle), fantasy managers saw another 20+ point game from Herbert in what will likely be his second-straight top-12 finish. He'll look to continue his success next week vs. the Vikings.

As expected, the Ravens split work pretty evenly between RBs Justice Hill and Gus Edwards in the first game since J.K. Dobbins' Achilles' tendon tear. Hill edged Edwards 11-10 in carries and garnered all 3 RB targets. But Edwards proved more efficient. He averaged 6.2 yards per carry and delivered the team's only rushing score, from 1 yard out in the first quarter. Hill got the only other RB goal-line carry right before that. Hill caught all three of his targets for 12 yards and tallied 41 yards on his 11 carries (3.7 per rush). Expect the pair to continue splitting opportunities. A Week 3 home date with the Colts looks like a neutral rushing matchup.

Chargers Edge Joey Bosa (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Titans. He barely practiced during the week, though, taking part only in individual side drills on Friday. That makes Bosa a high-risk play for Week 2 IDP lineups.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Saints. He was a full-go in Saturday's practice, and HC Frank Reich confirmed that Chark is expected to play against New Orleans. But Reich also mentioned the "possibility of a pitch count," according to The Athletic's Joe Person. Chark should not be in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Chargers Edge Joey Bosa is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. He missed the first two practices with a hamstring injury. Bosa returned to the field Friday and was officially limited. But NFL Network's Bridget Condon reported that he worked off to the side with no helmet. That doesn't sound like a guy who's ready to come back for the game. Set your IDP lineup as though Bosa won't be available this week. We'll see what else we learn ahead of Sunday's kickoff. The combo of Bosa's injury and multiple injuries at LB should downgrade the Chargers' team D for Week 2.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (hamstring) got in a limited practice on Thursday. He has a shot to play vs. the Saints on Monday night but shouldn't be in your Week 2 fantasy plans.

Chargers Edge Joey Bosa missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. We'll see about his status the rest of the week, ahead of Sunday's matchup with Tennessee.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins will undergo surgery on September 15 to repair his torn Achilles, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Dobbins is "aiming" for a return in six months, per Pelissero, which would put him back on the field in March. That'd be a big win for Dobbins, who will turn 25 in December and hit free agency in March. We'll track his rehab, but Dobbins' dynasty value has taken a major hit. There's no guarantee that he returns to pre-injury form.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert finished Week 1 with just 228 passing yards and 1 TD. A short-range toss to TE Donald Parham accounted for his only passing score. Herbert added a second score on a QB sneak, but there wasn’t much to speak of otherwise. Keenan Allen led the way with 6 grabs for 76 yards. Mike Williams — who left briefly for a concussion check — tallied just 45 yards on 4 catches. And Round 1 rookie Quentin Johnston mixed in for only 9 yards on 2 receptions. Overall, a slow start isn’t a total surprise given the presence of new OC Kellen Moore (plus a talented Miami defense). Keep expectations high for Sunday’s matchup at Tennessee.
