Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (groin) is active for tonight's game against the Bengals. He never seemed to consider it in doubt. Use Waddle as planned in fantasy football lineups.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (back, ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Bengals. There's added risk with the 2 injuries involved here, but Tagovailoa still sits inside the top 10 of our QB rankings for the week.

Dolphins S Brandon Jones (chest) and CB Xavien Howard (groin, glute) are active for tonight's game against the Bengals. It's a positive matchup for both defenders.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (back, ankle) is expected to play vs. the Bengals tonight, "barring a setback," according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. It's safe to assume that Tua won't be at 100%, though, adding some risk to his Week 4 fantasy profile. Pelissero also confirms that WR Jaylen Waddle (groin) "should be good to go" for tonight.

Dolphins S Brandon Jones (chest) and CB Xavien Howard (groin, glute) are questionable for Thursday night's game at Cincinnati. He did put in limited practices the past 2 days. We'll check his availability Thursday evening.

The Dolphins list WR Jaylen Waddle (groin) as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Bengals. He got in limited practices on Tuesday and Wednesday. We've seen nothing to suggest that Waddle is in danger of missing this one, but you'll need to check back tomorrow around 7 pm ET to make sure he's active.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ankle, back) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Bengals. He got in limited practices on Tuesday and Wednesday. HC Mike McDaniel said Tuesday that he was "optimistic" Tua would be able to play, so we're tentatively projecting him in. We'll get Miami's inactives around 7 pm ET tomorrow.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel called QB Tua Tagovailoa (back, ankle) "questionable" for Thursday night's game vs. the Bengals but added that he's "optimistic" his QB will be able to play. The short week is doing Tagovailoa no favors. We'll see what he does in practice today and tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report Wednesday afternoon.

The Dolphins estimated their 1st practice report of the week Monday, ahead of Thursday night's visit to Cincinnati. That included listing QB Tua Tagovailoa as a non-participant. HC Mike McDaniel says the QB is dealing with soreness in his back and ankle and that they were awaiting further test results Monday. Tagovailoa did return to Sunday's game after leaving for a concussion check -- what NFL Network's Ian Rapoport later reported as more of a neck/back injury -- but we'll see about his availability for Thursday.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson led the 49ers’ backfield in Week 3, rushing 12 times for 75 yards. He gashed the Broncos for an explosive 37-yard run but averaged 3.4 yards on his 11 other attempts. Deebo Samuel mixed in with 5 carries for 6 yards; Jordan Mason saw only 1 attempt. In total, Wilson handled 73% of the backfield snaps with Elijah Mitchell and Ty Davis-Price sidelined. Wilson did fumble after catching his 3rd pass of the night on San Francisco’s final drive, but we don’t see it changing his role going forward. Next up is a home date with the Rams.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle recorded 4 grabs for 102 yards in a Week 3 win over Buffalo. He was on his way to busting before catching downfield balls of 32 and 45 yards in the 4th quarter, the latter of which came on 3rd and 22. His 6 targets (on 20 team pass attempts) paced the team on a day that turned up only 39(!) offensive plays. That helped contribute to a dud from Tyreek Hill (2-33), who had an 8-yard catch wiped out on a questionable penalty. Waddle and Hill remain top-15 fantasy WRs moving forward.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa left late in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Bills for a concussion check. His head slammed on the turf, and Tua was woozy when he got up. We'll update his status when we know more. QB Teddy Bridgewater has entered for Miami.

Update: Tagovailoa cleared concussion protocol and returned for the start of the 2nd half.

Dolphins lead CB Xavien Howard (groin) is active for today's game against the Bills. If he's limited at all by the groin issue, though, Buffalo's WRs are certainly capable of exploiting the weakness.

After trailing teammate Chase Edmonds in playing time and opportunities in the opener, RB Raheem Mostert took the lead position in Sunday's win over the Ravens. He carried 11 times (for 51 yards, 4.6 per carry) to Edmonds' 5 and matched his 3 targets, catching then all for 28 yards. Edmonds contributed 33 yards on the ground (6.6 per rush) and caught 1 pass for 8 yards. The 2 saw nearly identical playing time, so expect the variable workloads to continue.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa delivered a stat line Sunday that belongs in the old WAC college football conference: 36-of-50 passing, 469 yards, 6 TDs and 2 INTs. He hit WR Tyreek Hill for an 11-190-2 line on 13 targets and WR Jaylen Waddle for 11-171-2 on 19 looks. Tagovailoa also connected with TE Mike Gesicki and WR River Cracraft for TDs. Hill and Waddled combined for 64% of the QB's targets for the game. We obviously can't expect numbers this large on a regular basis -- or maybe ever again -- but it's nice to see ultimate ceiling from the Miami passer. And the lead duo at WR have combined for more than 50% of Dolphins targets in each game so far.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Ravens with cramping. If this is truly just cramps, there will be no long-term concern. We'll keep an eye on Hill this coming week.

Update: Hill returned in the 4th quarter and promptly scored a 48-yard TD. He's fine.

Dolphins DT Christian Wilkins (back) is active for today's game against the Ravens. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

Dolphins DT Christian Wilkins (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He popped up on the injury report Thursday and was limited the past 2 days. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

"We'll go with the hot hand," 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday of his Week 2 backfield. He added that RBs Ty Davis-Price and Jordan Mason will compete in practice this week for the #2 RB job. Jeff Wilson will open the Seahawks game as the #1 RB, but as is always the case with Shanahan backfields, it'll be a fluid situation. Davis-Price and Mason are worth stashing in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams.

The 49ers lost RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) early in Sunday's loss to the Bears, which left Jeff Wilson Jr. as the clear backfield leader. With rookie RB Tyrion Davis-Price a healthy scratch, Wilson led RBs at 59% playing time and claimed 9 of 15 RB carries. He managed just 22 yards on the ground, adding 8 more on 2 receptions (2 targets). Deebo Samuel served as the other primary -- and only productive -- runner vs. Chicago, including scoring the team's only TD. RB Jordan Mason was active but didn't get onto the field. We'll see about the outlook for Mitchell's injury and who joins Wilson in the backfield. But he looks like the best bet to lead 49ers RBs in opportunities while Mitchell is out.
