Jets RB Le’Veon Bell (hamstring) is officially active for today’s game against the Cardinals. Consider him a RB3 or Flex play in his 1st action since Week 1.

The Broncos-Patriots game has been moved to Week 6, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. New England was originally scheduled for a Week 6 bye. Denver was slated to play Miami in Week 6, but that game will now be rescheduled. Pull all Broncos and Patriots players from your Week 5 fantasy lineups.

The Broncos and Patriots are still slated to play on Monday night, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. New England had a 4th positive test on Sunday morning, but that evidently won't stop the game -- at least barring further positives. As always, this remains a fluid situation.

The Patriots had another COVID test come back positive on Sunday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That makes it 4 positives over the past 8 days in New England. The team closed its facilities again, and Monday's game vs. the Broncos is "now in question," according to Schefter. We'll pass along any further updates, but Patriots and Broncos players should probably be on fantasy benches for now.

The Jets had a player test positive for COVID on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. All players and personnel have been sent home for now. This puts the timing and viability of this week's Jets-Cardinals game in question. Stay tuned.

Bucs RB LeSean McCoy has been diagnosed with a grade 2 ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. McCoy is considered "week to week" and is a long shot for Thursday night's game vs. the Bears. We'll see if Leonard Fournette can return from his own ankle injury for that one. If not, RB Ronald Jones will be in a workhorse role again.

Bucs RB LeSean McCoy was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Chargers with an ankle injury. Tampa is already without RB Leonard Fournette (ankle), leaving Ronald Jones as the feature back.

Recently signed K Stephen Hauschka (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Bengals. Aldrick Rosas was promoted from the practice squad to kick for Jacksonville today.

Colts TE Trey Burton (calf) has been activated from IR. He'll presumably play against the Bears tomorrow. Burton isn't a Week 4 fantasy option but does further crowd the Colts' TE picture, joining Mo Alie-Cox and Jack Doyle.

Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) isn’t listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game against the Vikings but figures to see just a handful of touches behind RB David Johnson.

Redskins RB Bryce Love has been placed on IR due to swelling in his knee. That knocks him out for at least the next 3 games. HC Ron Rivera said he's still hoping Love plays this season, but he's not worth clinging to in redraft fantasy leagues.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) is targeting a Week 5 return, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. That's when Bell is first eligible to come off the IR. A healthy Bell should take right back over as New York's feature back. But the Jets' ineptitude leaves him as no better than a low-end RB2.

HC Kyle Shanahan says TE Jordan Reed could miss 6-8 weeks with the knee sprain he suffered in Sunday's win over the Giants, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He'll go on short-term IR. You should go ahead and drop Reed from most fantasy football rosters.

Broncos DE Jurrell Casey suffered a torn biceps in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. That likely ends his season. DeMarcus Walker looks like the next man up on the depth chart for a Denver defense that no longer looks like a tough matchup in any area.

The Jaguars are signing K Stephen Hauschka, according to multiple reports. He will replace rookie Brandon Wright, who filled in Thursday night for injured K Josh Lambo. With Lambo on IR (left hip injury), the job should be Hauschka's for at least the next 2 games.

49ers TE Jordan Reed suffered knee and ankle injuries in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Giants. He returned for a bit before eventually limping off the field again. We'll update Reed's status when we learn more.

Giants RB Devonta Freeman is active for today's game against the 49ers. He joins Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman in New York's Saquon Barkley-less backfield. It's a situation to try to avoid in Week 3 fantasy lineups as we wait to see how snaps and touches will be divvied.

Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Steelers. RB David Johnson will continue to dominate touches in Houston’s backfield.

Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) is not expected to play against the Steelers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. David Johnson will dominate backfield work again for Houston.

Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Duke isn't a fantasy option, but his absence would mean a few extra touches for RB David Johnson.
