Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited in all three practices last week before missing the Seahawks game, so this doesn't tell us much about his availability for Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. Barkley seemingly has a shot to play in that one, but we'll keep you updated on his progress over the next few days.

Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (knee) told reporters Wednesday that he'll be "ready to go" for Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. We'll track his status throughout the rest of the week after he suffered a reported bone bruise in last week's loss to the Texans. Pickett will be a bottom-barrel QB2 if he suits up this weekend.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert remains a big part of the passing game, HC Nick Sirianni said Monday. Goedert has caught 13 passes for just 88 yards and 0 TDs through four weeks. He's sitting 30th among TEs in PPR points. "He’ll get going," Sirianni said. "I’m certain of that. We’ve got to do our jobs as coaches to get him going. But he is still a very big factor in the way our offense is playing right now.” We've seen WR A.J. Brown tally two straight huge games after expressing some displeasure over his role back in Week 2. Goedert hasn't publicly complained, but it's certainly possible that he gets some "squeaky-wheel" treatment. He's still run a route on 92% of Eagles pass plays, so he's not far off from better production.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said QB Kenny Pickett has been diagnosed with a bone bruise on his knee. He'll participate to some extent in Wednesday's practice, and the team will evaluate him from there. "The more comfortable and functional he is, the more work he'll get," Tomlin said. It seems like Pickett has a real chance to play vs. the Ravens this weekend. We'll keep you updated on his progress.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is officially inactive for tonight's game vs. the Seahawks. He put in three limited practices this week and has a shot to return for Week 5. Matt Breida figures to serve as New York's lead back tonight after playing 82% of the offensive snaps last week. RBs Gary Brightwell and Eric Gray are also active.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Steelers QB Kenny Pickett "is not expected to miss much if any time" with the knee injury that knocked him out of Sunday's game. Pickett could "try to push" to play this Sunday against Baltimore. A Week 6 bye after that could factor into the decision, though. We'll watch reports this week to see if Pickett or Mitchell Trubisky will start the divisional game.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is not expected to play vs. the Seahawks tonight. But Barkley is "steadily getting better" and has a "realistic chance" to return for Week 5, Rapoport adds. We'll keep tabs on Barkley's progress throughout this week, leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins.

Steelers QB Kenny Pickett "will miss some time" with his knee injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. How much time will depend on the results of Monday's MRI. The Steelers don't believe Pickett's ACL is damaged, but there's concern about the MCL and meniscus, Rapoport says. "The belief is that this is not a season-ending situation." We should have a more concrete timeline for Pickett's return by the end of Monday. QB Mitchell Trubisky will step in as Pittsburgh's starter for however long Pickett is out. Trubisky completed 65.0% of his passes at 7.0 yards per attempt across four starts and seven total appearances for the Steelers last year.

DeVante Parker played 16 more snaps and ran 10 more pass routes than any other Patriots WR in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. It marked the third straight week Parker has led the group in routes. He has run a route on 91% of New England's dropbacks in that span, after missing Week 1. TE Hunter Henry checks in next at 82.9%. WR Kendrick Bourne trails at 60.4%, with WR JuJu Smith-Schuster at 54.1%. That has amounted to only 7 total targets and 4 receptions over the past two weeks. But it leaves room for upside in upcoming matchups. Week 5 brings the Saints, who have played well on defense but been a positive scoring matchup for WRs. Our adjusted fantasy points allowed say the Raiders, Bills, and Dolphins the following three weeks have been negative. We'll see as those matchups draw closer.

Steelers QB Kenny Pickett is scheduled for an MRI on his left knee on Monday, according to Pro Football Talk. The team is “hopeful” he’s just dealing with a minor MCL sprain. We should get an update on Pickett's status within the next 24 hours. QB Mitchell Trubisky finished today’s game for Pittsburgh, completing 3 of 5 passes for 18 yards.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts racked up 319 yards and 2 TDs passing in Sunday's OT win over the Commanders. He found WR A.J. Brown for both scores, from 28 and 59 yards out. Brown and DeVonta Smith combined to draw targets on 59.5% of Hurts' pass attempts. They also accounted for 79.3% of the team's receiving yards. TE Dallas Goedert managed just 2 receptions for 25 yards among 4 targets. RB D'Andre Swift ranked third on the team with 4 receptions on 4 targets.

Even with WR A.J. Brown garnering 35% of Eagles targets in Sunday's win over the Commanders, WR DeVonta Smith still managed a solid outing. He drew 9 targets, tallied 7 receptions, and totaled 78 yards. Smith saw a target on 24.3% of QB Jalen Hurts' 37 pass attempts. He's now up to 22.3% target share through four games. That's down a bit from last year's 25.4%, though, and makes Smith more of a high-end WR3 than WR2.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown racked up 9 receptions, 175 yards, and 2 TDs in Sunday's OT win over the Commanders. His scores came from 28 and 59 yards out, while his 13 targets accounted for 35.1% of Jalen Hurts' total pass attempts. Through four games, Brown has drawn a target on 33.1% of Hurts' attempts. He gets a nice matchup with the Rams in Week 5, ahead of a more challenging Week 6 draw in the Jets.

Steelers QB Kenny Pickett suffered an apparent left knee injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Texans. He needed help getting off the field. We'll update his status when we know more. QB Mitchell Trubisky is Pittsburgh's backup.

Update: Pickett has been ruled out.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is doubtful for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. That means Matt Breida should again run as New York's top back. He'll get a more favorable matchup than Week 3, when a TD made his fantasy line against the 49ers. Breida still carries limited upside but is an option for needy Week 4 fantasy lineups. Check your Team Intel page to see how Breida compares with your other options.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) remained limited in Friday's practice. HC Brian Daboll said Barkley "did good" on Thursday, per ESPN's Jordan Raanan, so it sounds like that injured ankle has responded well so far. We'll see what Barkley does on Saturday and how he's listed on the final injury report for Monday night's game vs. the Seahawks.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport described Barkley's status for Monday night's game vs. the Seahawks as a "wait-and-see" situation, adding that Barkley "has a long way to go." We're still not projecting him to play this week but will continue to monitor his progress over the next few days.

Giants HC Brian Daboll labeled RB Saquon Barkley "day-to-day" with his ankle injury. "He feels a lot better today, but we’ll kinda take that all the way throughout the week and see how he improves,” Daboll said. Barkley has an extra day to get ready for New York's Monday night game vs. the Seahawks, but we'd still consider him no better than 50/50 for that one after Barkley revealed last week that he's dealing with a high-ankle sprain.

Steelers QB Kenny Pickett completed 16 of 28 attempts for 235 passing yards with 2 TD in Week 3 vs. the Raiders, marking the first multi-passing TD game of his NFL career. Pickett was lucky to have a would-be INT dropped early in the contest, a theme all too familiar for him at this point. One thing that won’t come up in the box score, however, is a 27-yard run from the signal-caller in the second quarter that was negated by a penalty. Pickett only ended the game with 11 rushing yards officially, though he did look pretty good running around. He’ll look to build on his minor successes in Week 4 vs. the Texans.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) "has a chance" to play vs. the Seahawks next Monday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That'd be a quick return from a high-ankle sprain, but we'll keep a close eye on Barkley's progress this coming week.
