Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) is active for today’s game against the Redskins. He’ll back up RB Terrance West. Dixon is worth rostering in most fantasy leagues but shouldn’t be in Week 5 fantasy lineups.

Windy conditions are expected for today's Redskins-Ravens game. The forecast calls for winds of 20-25 mph with gusts up to 35-40 mph. That's certainly enough to impact the passing games, particularly deep threats like DeSean Jackson and Mike Wallace. We've nudged both those guys down the Week 5 rankings. Ks Dustin Hopkins and Justin Tucker might also be hindered.

The Ravens listed RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins. He put in a full week of practice, though, and is fully expected to play. Dixon will operate behind RB Terrance West and isn't a recommended Week 5 fantasy start. But the rookie could quickly earn a larger role.

Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) is active for today’s game against the Chargers. He was limited in practice all week but sounded optimistic about his status on Friday. The toe issue adds some risk, but Snead has enough upside to be worth getting into fantasy lineups.

Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) will play against the Chargers later today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Snead got in 3 limited practices this week and sounded optimistic about his status on Friday. The toe issue adds some risk to his Week 4 profile, but he's fine to get into fantasy lineups as a borderline WR2.

Cardinals WR Michael Floyd is not on the team’s final injury report. He experienced concussion symptoms on Monday but was fully cleared by Thursday. Floyd is off to a slow start but remains a high-end talent playing a big role in an explosive passing game.

Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chargers. He was limited in practice all week but expressed optimism on Friday. "I feel a lot better than I did this time last week," Snead said. "Last week I was just hurting in a bad place. Even though we had a long week, I still needed more time. But now that I'm healed, I feel really good about playing Sunday and making a big impact in the game.” Go ahead and pencil Snead into fantasy lineups for now, but you need to have a late-game alternative available. Saints-Chargers doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. The rookie returned to practice this week and is expected to debut in Week 5. He could quickly emerge as Baltimore’s top RB and is worth stashing now. Justin Forsett and Terrance West will continue sharing the backfield and not producing this Sunday.

Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (concussion) put in a full practice on Thursday. Barring a setback between now and Sunday, he'll play against the Rams. Floyd is off to a slow start but retains enough upside to make him worth keeping in fantasy lineups. He posted lines of 5-59 and 7-104 vs. the Rams last year.

Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. It gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Chargers. We'll have another update on Snead tomorrow.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) is expected to return to practice this week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie has been sidelined since tearing his MCL in Baltimore's 3rd preseason game. He was building momentum prior to that injury and now returns to a backfield averaging 3.3 yards per carry. Dixon won't be an immediate fantasy option but could quickly emerge as Baltimore's lead back. He's worth stashing in most fantasy football leagues.

Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (concussion) has been cleared for non-contact work, according to insider Alex Marvez. The team believes that he could receive full clearance by Thursday. Floyd appears to be on track to play against the Rams this weekend, although there are no guarantees with these concussions.

Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) is inactive for tonight's game against the Falcons. We don't have any details on his injury, but he didn't practice at all this week. His absence tonight gives rookie WR Michael Thomas a big opportunity. He's a WR3 with upside tonight.

Cardinals WR Michael Floyd is in the league's concussion protocol, HC Bruce Arians announced. Floyd passed a concussion test during Sunday's loss to the Bills but was experiencing headaches on Monday. We'll track his status throughout the week. Floyd's absence would open up snaps and targets for WR John Brown.

ESPN's Britt McHenry hears that Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) will not play tonight against the Falcons. We'll get the official inactives list around 7 pm ET. Snead's absence would vault WR Michael Thomas to #2 on the depth chart and make him an upside WR3 play in what should be a shootout tonight.

Saints WR Willie Snead will be a game-time decision for Monday night's contest against the Falcons. He didn't practice all week but told reporters Saturday that he's "hopeful" that he'll be able to play. The late kickoff obviously puts fantasy owners in a tough spot, though. Unless you have a replacement from that game -- ideally Michael Thomas -- Snead probably needs to be on your bench for Week 3.

Saints WR Willie Snead was held out of Thursday's practice with a toe injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it. Snead has an extra day to get ready for Monday night's game against the Falcons, but don't consider him a lock. We'll have another update on his status tomorrow.

Browns QB Robert Griffin has been placed on IR with a broken bone in his left (non-throwing) shoulder. It's possible he's designated as the team's player-to-return, but we wouldn't count on seeing RG3 again this year. QB Josh McCown takes over as Cleveland's starter and more than likely will be an upgrade. He completed 63.7% of his passes, averaged 7.2 yards per attempt and tossed 12 TDs vs. 4 INTs last year -- although that was in a different offense. McCown is especially good news for TE Gary Barnidge, who went catch-less on 2 targets in the opener.

Browns QB Robert Griffin has a "potentially serious" shoulder injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. RG3 downplayed the issue after the game, but it sounds like there's a chance he misses time. He's undergoing additional testing today, so we should get another update soon. QB Josh McCown would step in if Griffin is sidelined and might be an upgrade for the offense.

Browns QB Robert Griffin III told reporters that he suffered a left shoulder sprain in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. Griffin also said that he expects to be fine for Week 2. We'll keep an eye on him this week to see if that's the case. Josh McCown would be the next QB up if Griffin can't go.
