Bills RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Patriots after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. The rookie can’t be trusted in Week 4 fantasy lineups, but his return would put a dent in RB Frank Gore’s projection. We’ll get Buffalo’s inactives by noon ET on Sunday.

Seahawks DT Quinton Jefferson should be in a good spot for IDP upside this week against the Cardinals, but he's looking unlikely to be ready for the matchup. Jefferson missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with a hip injury. We'll see if anything changes Friday but have already moved him down the Week 4 IDP rankings.

Bills RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He now has a shot to play against the Patriots this weekend. Check back tomorrow for another update on the rookie.

Bills RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) remained sidelined on Wednesday. At this point, we're not expecting him to play against the Patriots this weekend. With the rookie out last week, Frank Gore played 63% of the offensive snaps, carried 14 times and saw 2 targets. T.J. Yeldon registered a 37% snap rate, 8 carries and 3 targets.

Bills RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals. He didn't practice all week and shouldn't be considered a lock to return for Week 4. Frank Gore will serve as Buffalo's lead back in a plus spot as a home favorite against a Cincinnati defense that's allowed 5.4 yards per carry to RBs through 2 weeks.

Bills RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) remained sidelined on Thursday. The rookie is looking like a long shot to play against the Bengals this weekend. That'd leave Frank Gore as Buffalo's clear lead ball-carrier in a nice matchup. RB T.J. Yeldon figures to play in some passing situations.

Bills RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday. HC Sean McDermott labeled his rookie "day to day" on Monday, but fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on having Singletary for Week 3. We'll update his status again tomorrow.

Bills HC Sean McDermott called RB Devin Singletary "day to day" with his hamstring injury, adding that the team is "still gathering information." That's not much of an update, although it does sound like the rookie avoided a serious injury. We'll see if Singletary is able to get on the practice field on Wednesday.

Bills RB Devin Singletary hurt his hamstring late in Sunday's win over the Giants. We'll look for an update on the severity. The rookie carried 6 times for 57 yards and a score before exiting.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. After only getting in 2 limited practices this week, Diggs is a risk/reward WR2 in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is expected to be active for today's game against the Falcons, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Diggs only got in 2 limited practices this week, so don't bank on him being at 100% for this one. He's a risk/reward Week 1 fantasy play.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Falcons. After sitting out Wednesday, Diggs was limited on Thursday and Friday. We’ll find out his game status by noon ET on Sunday, but Diggs hasn’t played well through injury as a pro. Consider him a risky WR2 in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. It's a step in the right direction, but it'd be nice to see him put in a full workout on Friday. Check back then for another update.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it, but Diggs is now high on the Week 1 injury watch list. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field on Thursday.

The 49ers listed Matt Breida as the 1st-team RB on their "unofficial" Week 1 depth chart. Insider Matt Maiocco notes that this depth chart is put together by the team's football communication's staff. RB Tevin Coleman reportedly ran ahead of Breida throughout training camp and out-snapped Breida 27 to 18 with the 1st-team offense in preseason action, so we're not sure what to make of the depth-chart listing. We'll start to get answers in Sunday's opener against the Bucs. Consider both guys upside RB3s for Week 1.

Bills CB Tre'Davious White left Friday night's preseason game in Detroit after injuring his right leg. A cart came to retrieve him, but White made his way off the field without it. He could later be seen icing the leg on the sideline. We'll see how serious the damage is for Buffalo's top corner.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders took the field for Monday night's preseason game for the 1st time since last December's torn Achilles. And he looked like Emmanuel Sanders. He caught a quick pass on Denver's 1st offensive snap and later took this end-around for a nice 19-yard gain. Sanders also had a 45-yard reception negated by a holding penalty. "To be able to come back and feel how I feel and feel better, still be able to hang out with these 24-year-old kids and still be able to run with them, it's amazing," he said afterward. Clearly on track for Week 1 and looking completely recovered from that Achilles injury, Sanders is the best fantasy bet among Broncos WRs. Remember that he was sitting 15th among WRs in PPR points before last year's injury. We just bumped Sanders up the WR rankings.

It's impressive enough that Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders started training camp on time coming off a December tear of his left Achilles' tendon. But Mike Klis of 9News in Denver reported Monday that Sanders also had "tightrope" surgery on his right ankle to treat an issue that reportedly originated on October 15, 2017. This revelation might actually be a positive, though. Sanders told Klis that the right ankle "gave me problems all last year." He added: "I came to camp last year thinking, 'How the hell am I going to get through this season?' I feel like that was kind of the reason I tore my Achilles'." Sanders took part in full-team drills for the 1st time Monday and is expected to play in Denver's next preseason contest. Barring some setback with either ankle, Sanders looks like an option in the double-digit rounds of fantasy football drafts after we hit summer skeptical.

The Draft Sharks crew attended Bills training camp on Thursday morning and came away encouraged by RB Devin Singletary's usage. RB LeSean McCoy was 1st up with the starters, but Singletary mixed in early and ended up with about the same number of 1st-team reps as McCoy. RB T.J. Yeldon worked exclusively with the 2nd and 3rd teams, while RB Frank Gore got the day off. It's also worth noting that Singletary was split out wide on a bunch of his reps. The rookie appears set to play a significant role right out of the gate. He's a nice pick at his current 13th-round ADP.

49ers RB Matt Breida avoided the PUP list to open training camp. He missed the spring with a torn pectoral, and we'll see how much he's able to do early in camp. Breida has a chance to make a move up San Francisco's depth chart while RB Jerick McKinnon continues to sit with knee trouble.
