    New York Giants

    Daniel Jones Named Giants Starting QB

    This move was inevitable after the Giants selected Jones 6th overall in the 2019 draft. The rumors only intensified when coach Pat Shurmur wouldn’t commit to Eli Manning as the starter Monday. Jones looked great in the preseason, but it’s fair to expect some struggles from the rookie.

  • Bilal Powell

    New York Jets

    Bilal Powell Inactive, Demaryius Thomas Active

    Powell is inactive Week 2. Le’Veon Bell is the lead back and should see a heavy load again Week 2. Demaryius Thomas is active despite not practicing this week. Jamison Crowder got 17 targets last week and might see a slight decrease if Thomas has an active role in the offense. However, the Jets are running Trevor Siemian at QB, so the offense is unlikely to be very productive.

  • Rashard Higgins

    Cleveland Browns

    Rashard Higgins (Knee), Dontrell Hilliard (Concussion) Inactive Week 2

    Hilliard had already been ruled out earlier and is primarily a return man. Higgins is a bit of a surprise, as he had declared himself able to play last week. Damion Ratley will be the 3rd WR option for the Browns tonight behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry.

  • Michael Gallup

    Dallas Cowboys

    Michael Gallup (Knee) Out 2-4 Weeks

    Gallup is having arthroscopic surgery to trim his meniscus and is expected to miss 2-4 weeks. Gallup had taken a significant jump forward this season, averaging 113 yards per game and 17.4 yards per catch. Amari Cooper will remain the number one option with Randall Cobb as the slot receiver. Devin Smith should see the biggest increase in his role. He had a strong Week 2, catching all 3 targets for 74 yards and a touchdown.

  • Ben Roethlisberger

    Pittsburgh Steelers

    Ben Roethlisberger (Elbow) Out for Season

    Roethlisberger injured his elbow Week 2 and will need surgery to recover. The Steelers announced the recovery will end Roethlisberger’s season and land him on the IR. Mason Rudolph, the Steelers’ 3rd round draft pick in 2018, will get his chance to start at QB. He completed 12 of 19 passes for 112 yards, 2 TD’s and 1 interception in relief of Roethlisberger Week 2. He was highly productive at Oklahoma State, but Week 2 was his first NFL regular season action. He has potential but will be a very risky DFS play until he can prove himself competent. All the other offensive weapons on the Steelers should be downgraded based on this news.

  • Drew Brees

    New Orleans Saints

    Drew Brees (Thumb) Requires Surgery, Likely Out 6 Weeks

    Brees torn a ligament in his throw hand’s thumb, requiring surgery. He is expected to be out at least 6 weeks. He has played at least 15 games for 15 straight seasons, so this is new territory for Brees and the Saints. Teddy Bridgewater was signed as the highest paid backup QB in the NFL and will step in for Brees. Bridgewater completed 17 of 30 passes for 165 yards with 0 TD’s and 0 picks after taking over for Brees Week 2.

  • Trey Burton

    Chicago Bears

    Bears TE Trey Burton Will Play Today

    Bears TE Trey Burton will suit up today in Denver. QB Mitchell Trubisky completed only 57.8% of his passes against the Packers to kick off the 2019 NFL season, and the matchup for the Bears won’t be any easier on the road against an elite defense. Burton is a viable option in afternoon-only GPPs with the potential to be heavily targeted against the Broncos, who just gave up seven catches for 70 yards to Raiders TE Darren Waller last week.

    Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake on the Trade Block

    The Miami Dolphins are calling around to teams trying to deal RB Kenyan Drake and DB Minkah Fitzpatrick. The house cleaning continues in South Beach and it will be interesting to see how much work Drake gets today against New England.

    Steelers WR Juju Smith-Schuster Active Today as Expected

    Steelers WR Juju Smith-Schuster is playing in an excellent bounce-back spot against a Seattle team that just allowed 418 yards to Andy Dalton. Seattle is also without two of their top defensive linemen. Smith-Schuster makes for a great play in all formats for DFS.

    Texans WR Keke Coutee Active Vs. Jaguars

    Coutee should resume his normal duties in the slot against Jacksonville today. He is tournament viable against a banged up Jags secondary, but is a risky play because of the presence of newly acquired Kenny Stills and potential bad game script for the Texans pass catchers.

    Bengals RB Joe Mixon is looking good in warm-ups and should see a significant amount of the backfield touches. This takes RB Giovani Bernard out of play for DFS.

    Last week’s slate-breaker WR Marquise Brown, TE Mark Andrews, and RB Mark Ingram are all expected to play today despite being officially listed as questionable on the injury report. These Ravens saw less than expected snaps in a rout against Miami in Week 1, and have another juicy matchup at home against Arizona, who is projected to play at the highest pace in the league this season.

    Bengals RB Joe Mixon (Ankle) Listed as Questionable, Optimistic to Play Today

    Mixon plans to test his ankle in pregame warm-ups and expects to play barring a setback. If the star running back sees a full compliment of work, he makes for an intriguing GPP play at home against the 49ers. If Mixon can’t go, backup RB Giovani Bernard becomes a lock-and-load cash game play on all sites.
