Jaguars WR Zay Jones suffered a knee injury in the third quarter of Sunday morning's game vs. the Bills. He's officially questionable to return. Jones missed Weeks 3 and 4 with a knee injury, although it's unclear if this is related.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee) is active for this morning's game vs. the Bills. Jones was working ahead of WR Christian Kirk before missing the past two games. But he remained limited in practice all week and was listed as questionable, so it's unclear how close to 100% Jones is today.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday morning's game vs. the Bills in London. HC Doug Pederson is optimistic that Jones will be able to play, but it doesn't look like he'll be at 100%. That leaves him as a shaky Week 5 fantasy play.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. He's tentatively expected back for Sunday morning's game in London vs. the Bills, but we'll monitor Jones' status over the next few days.

Falcons QB Desmond Ridder completed 19 of 31 passes for 191 passing yards and a TD in Sunday’s loss vs. the Jaguars. The second-year player struggled with turnovers in the game, including a lost fumble in the fourth quarter and a pair of INTs. This is now the fourth game in a row that Ridder has failed to throw multiple TDs, and he really shouldn’t be considered outside of 2QB or superflex leagues in Week 5 against the Texans.

The Jaguars expect WR Zay Jones back from his knee injury next week, ESPN's Chris Fowler said during the London game. Jones has yet to practice since hurting his knee back in Week 2. We'll track his status this coming week.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) is still "weeks away" from playing, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Murray is eligible to come off the PUP list next week but isn't ready to practice yet. Murray still "wants and plans" to play this season, but Schefter believes it will be late October, "at the earliest," before we see him. This isn't a surprise after Murray tore his ACL this past December. If you've had Murray stashed on your fantasy bench, keep stashing him. But this report does mean that Murray isn't worth adding off waiver wires for at least another few weeks.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday morning's game vs. the Falcons. He's yet to practice since hurting that knee in Week 2. His absence leaves a handful of targets to go around for WR Calvin Ridley, WR Christian Kirk, and TE Evan Engram.

Jaguars HC Doug Pederson called WR Zay Jones (knee) a "long shot" to play vs. the Falcons in London on Sunday morning. WR Christian Kirk got a playing-time boost with Jones out last week, running a route on 89.8% of Jacksonville's pass plays. He's a much safer fantasy play with Jones out.

Cardinals RB James Conner piled up 98 rushing yards and 1 score on 14 attempts. Surprisingly, Arizona’s O-line opened up several holes for Conner to exploit. He nearly went untouched on his goal line score from 5 yards out. The veteran has now scored in two straight, while he’s hit 15 opportunities in all three games. He’ll be tested Sunday at San Francisco, especially with the 49ers having a rest advantage.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Week 3 vs. the Texans. His absence should lead to greater opportunity for teammate Christian Kirk to build upon his resurgent 14-catch, 110-receiving-yard performance from last Sunday. See where Kirk lands in our current WR rankings.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee) missed his second straight practice on Thursday. He's seemingly in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Titans. Jones' absence would boost the target projections for Calvin Ridley, Christian Kirk, and Evan Engram.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee) won't practice on Wednesday, HC Doug Pederson said. Pederson labeled Jones "day-to-day." He was able to return to last weekend's loss to the Chiefs, so Jones seemingly has a shot to play vs. the Texans this weekend. But he wouldn't be a strong fantasy play at less than 100%.

The Cardinals on Monday placed S Budda Baker on IR. That means he'll miss at least another four games, on top of the loss to the Giants he already missed. K'Von Wallace played every snap in place of Baker and should be the starter while the vet is out. Wallace led Arizona in total tackles and has history with HC Jonathan Gannon from Gannon's time as Eagles DC. He's a decent addition for balanced and more tackle-heavy IDP formats.

Jaguars HC Doug Pederson labeled WR Zay Jones day-to-day with the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. Jones is still set for additional testing on the knee. He was able to return to the Week 2 game, so we're tentatively expecting him to be available for this weekend's game vs. the Texans. But we'll update his status when we know more.

Cardinals RB James Conner received 23 carries for 106 rushing yards and 1 TD in Sunday’s loss to the Giants. The veteran only saw a single target in Week 2 and didn’t record a catch. For the second week in a row, Conner significantly out-worked his fellow RBs with 82.7% of the backfield touch opportunities, reaffirming his status as a workhorse for fantasy managers. He’ll figure to be a quality RB2 option again in Week 3 vs. the Cowboys.

Falcons QB Desmond Ridder completed 19 passes on 32 attempts for 237 passing yards with 1 TD and 1 INT in Sunday’s win vs. the Packers. He also ran the ball 10 times for 39 rushing yards with 1 TD on the ground. The second-year signal-caller's fantasy day looks better in the box score than his actual play reflects. Ridder struggled for much of the first half to push the ball downfield. To his credit, both he and the Falcons’ offense fared much better to end the game. 4 of their final 5 drives (excluding kneeling the ball to end the game) extended at least 44 yards and resulted in a scoring play. Ridder will look to continue progressing in Week 3 on the road against the Lions.

Cardinals S Budda Baker is inactive for today's game against the Giants. He suffered a hamstring injury in Friday's practice. S K'Von Wallace figures to step up after working as the third safety in Week 1.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones suffered a knee injury in the first half of Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs and is questionable to return. We'll pass along an update on his status when we learn more.

Update: Jones returned to the game.

Cardinals S Budda Bker popped up on Friday's injury report with a hamstring issue that has him questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. Baker sustained the injury during Friday's workout. We'll see about his status Sunday ahead of the 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. If we don't know about Baker heading into the early games, you might need to sit him for another option in your IDP lineup.
