Bills LB Tremaine Edmunds (groin, heel), S Jordan Poyer (elbow) and EDGE Gregory Rousseau (ankle) all missed practice Wednesday. HC Sean McDermott called Edmunds and Poyer day-to-day afterward but deemed Rousseau week-to-week. That indicates Rousseau isn't likely to play Sunday against the Vikings. We'll see about the other 2. McDermott added that whether CB Tre'Davious White (ACL recovery) will be ready to play this week also remains a "day to day" situation.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore mustered only 24 yards on 6 targets in Sunday’s blowout loss to Cincinnati. P.J. Walker was benched at halftime, which brought Baker Mayfield back into the starting role. Moore’s dud ended a streak of 2 straight games with 19+ PPR points. Walker will start Thursday’s game against Atlanta, a rematch of Week 8. Moore popped off for 6-152-1 in that one.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore trounced the Falcons for 6-152-1 in Week 8. He saw 11 targets — a 30.5% team share — continuing a post- Christian McCaffrey/Robbie Anderson trend. Moore’s highlight came on a 62-yard deep ball that sent the game to OT — and showed off some awful defensive back play. Still, credit Moore for delivering on the type of performance we expected over the summer, especially in a plus matchup. With Walker remaining the starter for the foreseeable future, Moore will stick around as a weekly WR2. Next up is a Bengals squad that was smoked by Amari Cooper (5-131-1) on Monday night.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert played less than half of David Montgomery's snaps in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. But he beat the starter by 1 carry and crushed him in rushing production. Herbert took 16 carries for 99 yards and a TD (6.2 yards per rush). Montgomery carried 15 times for 53 yards (3.5). Montgomery did dominate the backfield receiving work, catching all 3 targets for 22 yards. Herbert went without a target. That's 2 straight weeks for Herbert running close to Montgomery in touches, both productive weeks for the offense. It appears we should bet on the elevated role continuing for Herbert, who looks like at least a RB3 even with Montgomery in the lineup.

Texans EDGE Rasheem Green (knee) is active for today's game against the Titans.

Seahawks RB Travis Homer (ribs) has been activated from IR, putting him on track to play vs. the Giants on Sunday. Homer was getting some passing-down work before going down in Week 3. We'll see how much of that he steals from RB Ken Walker going forward.

Texans DL Rasheem Green (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. He popped up on the injury report Friday after a limited practice. We'll check his status Sunday.

Seahawks RB Travis Homer (ribs) has been designated to return from IR. He'll practice on Wednesday and is eligible to play vs. the Giants this weekend if he's ready. Homer was operating in a pass-catching role before going down and figures to swipe that job back from RB DeeJay Dallas. We'll see how much he eats into RB Ken Walker's pass-catching work. The rookie ran a route on a season-high 62% of pass plays last week.

TE Robert Tonyan led the Packers in targets (12), receptions (10) and receiving yards (90) in Sunday's loss to the Jets. His 76% route rate also ranked 3rd among Green Bay players. Tonyan and the Packers now get 3 straight road dates, against Washington, Buffalo and Detroit.

Bills LB Tremaine Edmunds (hamstring) is inactive for today's games against the Steelers. Tyrel Dodson should be the fill-in. DT Ed Oliver (ankle) is active.

Bills LB Tremaine Edmunds (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He missed practice all week and seems like a risky IDP option even if active. DTs Ed Oliver (ankle) and Jordan Phillips (hamstring) are also questionable.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan found the end zone in Sunday's OT win over the Patriots, catching 1 of Aaron Rodgers' 2 TD passes. That came on 1 of just 2 targets for the game, though. Tonyan continued to see his opportunities capped, running a route on 57% of Rodgers dropbacks. He'll need to improve on that to climb toward top-12 fantasy football lineup consideration.

11:33am EDT 10/2/22

Bears WR Velus Jones (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. We’ll see how big a role the rookie plays in his debut, but he’s not a fantasy option.

Bears K Cairo Santos will miss today's game vs. the Giants due to a personal issue. Michael Badgley will kick in his place. Hopefully you're not invested in this situation.

Bears WR Velus Jones (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so it looks like he’s ready to make his NFL debut. Jones, of course, is nowhere close to being a fantasy option.

3:01pm EDT 9/28/22

The Seahawks placed RB Travis Homer (ribs) on IR. He's out at least the next 4 weeks. Homer had been playing a passing-down role for Seattle before the injury. We'd expect that work to now go to RB DeeJay Dallas, but we'll see if RBs Rashaad Penny or Ken Walker can pick up some of it.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert racked up a 20-157-2 rushing line in Sunday's win over the Texans, taking over after RB David Montgomery left in the 1st quarter with a right-leg injury. HC Matt Eberflus called Montgomery "day to day" afterward, so we'll see about his status for Week 4. This might have been the kind of performance (including 7.9 yards per rush) that commands work for the 2nd-year back even when Montgomery's available. A Week 4 matchup with the Giants holds rushing upside as well, especially for an offense that looks vehemently opposed to throwing the ball: 37 run plays vs. 25 dropbacks in Week 3.

Colts EDGE Yannick Ngakoue (back) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. He's a lower-level IDP option anyway, though.

11:38am EDT 9/25/22

Bears WR Velus Jones (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Texans. We’re expecting Darnell Mooney, Equanimeous St. Brown and Dante Pettis to again operate as Chicago’s top 3 WRs.

Colts DE Yannick Ngakoue (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He'll be a lackluster IDP option even if active.
