Jaguars placed FS Dwight Lowery (foot) on season-ending injured reserve.

Lowery played in, and started, nine games this season, registering 31 tackles, four passes defensed, and one interception. He'll return for the second year of a four-year deal in 2013.

Rashard Higgins is listed as a starter on the Browns' unofficial depth chart.

Team released depth charts do not mean much, but Higgins did play 54-of-71 snaps against the Ravens, 12 more than Kenny Britt. He also turned 11 targets into seven catches for 95 yards. Just promoted off the practice squad on Saturday, there is a risk Higgins recedes into the background even with Corey Coleman (hand) likely headed to injured reserve, but he is worth an add in all leagues.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Higgins is an intriguing GPP option this week against a Colts team that looks like an ideal pass funnel defense to pick on. After facing Todd Gurley and the Cardinals RBs sans David Johnson, the Colts have limited runners to 2.5 ypc (2nd). At the same time, they've allowed 308 passing yards per game (29th) and 9.8 ypa (31st). With the Browns ground game off to a slow start, averaging 3.3 ypc (24th), Higgins could be given ample opportunity to produce against a weak secondary.

Jerry Jones said Dak Prescott (ankle) will be ready for Week 3.

"He is going to be able to play Monday," Jones said. There never seemed to be much concern about Prescott's status, but it is still good to hear. Prescott will be a low-end QB1 against the Cardinals on Monday night.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said the team has to be "careful" with Chris Thompson.

"He's not the biggest guy in the world. We don't want him to get 20-25 carries a game and get a lot of pounding on that body," Gruden said. "So we'll try to expand his role a little bit, but we don't want to go too crazy with him." Fantasy owners are understandably excited after Thompson scored three highlight-worthy touchdowns in the first two games, but he has just 13 touches total so far this year. Unless his role increases dramatically, which it does not sound like it will, he is likely to be overvalued on the waiver wire.

Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports Corey Coleman (broken hand) is expected to be placed on injured reserve.

That would cost the receiver at least eight weeks. Coleman was able to come back after just six weeks from a broken hand last season, but this one required surgery, perhaps extending the timetable. Kenny Britt would seem like the No. 1 receiver with Coleman sidelined, but he seems like he does not want to even be on the field right now. Rashard Higgins may end up emerging as the go-to option.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jordy Nelson (quad) is "50-50" for Week 3 against the Bengals.

Nelson has avoided a serious injury, but it is still possible he is forced to miss a game. The news for Randall Cobb's shoulder injury is even better, and it does not sound like he will miss any time. Despite the scare on Sunday night, the Packers' receiver corps appears to still be intact.

Brandon Marshall caught 1-of-5 targets for 17 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

Marshall was held without a catch on one target in the first half and was stopped at the one-yard line on his lone grab in the third quarter. He later committed a flat-out brutal drop down the sideline on a play where he had a step on the cornerback for what should have been a gain of 30-plus yards. Marshall has no connection with Eli Manning right now and has just two catches for 27 yards through two games. He's closer to being droppable than usable in fantasy.

Ameer Abdullah rushed 17 times for 86 yards in the Lions' Week 2 win over the Giants.

The Lions haven't had a 100-yard rusher in a game since Reggie Bush in 2013. Abdullah came close with his career-best 86 on Monday, but he came up limping and grabbing his ankle after breaking off a 34-yarder late in the fourth quarter. He likely would have gotten to 100 if he'd been able to stay in. That seems to be the story of Abdullah's career, however. Abdullah played 29-of-62 snaps and dominated the rushing attempts again. He remains an RB3 due to his lack of red-zone and receiving work. Abdullah will get the Falcons at home in Week 3.

Odell Beckham caught 4-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions on Monday night.

Making his season debut after four weeks of rest following a preseason ankle injury, Beckham played just over 61% of the snaps, according to PFF's Nate Jahnke. He didn't start, and Beckham appeared to only be getting reps in meaningful situations like third downs and in the red zone. The one pass OBJ didn't reel in was a bad drop on a fourth down in the fourth quarter with the Giants down by two touchdowns. Beckham appeared to avoid setbacks and will be a WR1 next week at the Eagles.

Matthew Stafford completed 15-of-21 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions' 24-10, Week 2 win over the Giants on Monday night.

Per Profootballtalk's Michael David Smith, the 122 yards is Stafford's second-lowest mark of his career. Stafford only had to throw four passes after halftime with the Lions holding control of this game for the entire second half. His first touchdown was a beauty of a back-shoulder fade to Marvin Jones from 27 yards out, and the second was a short red-zone score to a wide-open Eric Ebron, who was dusting the Giants' linebackers and safeties all night. Stafford has a 6:1 TD:INT mark through two games and gets the Falcons at home in a potential Week 3 shootout.
Sep 18 - 11:26 PM

Odell Beckham (ankle) is active for Week 2 against the Lions.

Beckham went through an extensive warmup routine before the game and is ready to make his 2017 debut. He's very likely not 100 percent, but OBJ is a must-start in all formats and all league sizes. Even at less than his best, Beckham is a WR1 dripping with upside in an offense that goes through him.
Sep 18 - 6:54 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Giants and WR Odell Beckham are both open to an in-season contract extension.

Most teams and players don't like to negotiate during the season. Beckham is under team control through 2018, but he's massively underpaid at just $1.839 million this season. Talk of a contract has been in the media for months now, though the two sides don't appear close to anything at all right now. OBJ is expected to reset the market at his position as a 25-year-old.
