Latest Headlines

Le'Veon Bell reported to training camp at 232 pounds, 12 pounds lighter than last season.

We always like to hear about running backs shedding weight because it often increases both quickness and long speed. For Bell, it was a necessity. He averaged just 3.52 YPC as a rookie, breaking a mere five runs of 15+ yards on his 244 carries. In one recent interview, the 6-foot-1 Bell even said he was down around 220-225 pounds. "Looking at my film, when I was lighter, I made cuts a lot quicker, I was faster," he said. "I feel better around that weight, so I'm going to stay around that weight." A bump to something near 3.9 YPC is a reasonable projection for Bell's sophomore NFL campaign.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Julio Jones (calf, questionable) was a full-go in Sunday's walkthrough.

Coach Dan Quinn reportedly told Glazer the Falcons expect Jones to play Monday night against the Saints, but they will test him again before the game. All signs have pointed to Jones being active this week, and this news just solidifies his status. He is an elite WR1.

Chris Ivory (illness) is active for Week 3 against the Ravens.

Ivory is finally ready to make his Jaguars debut after missing the first two games with what the team is calling a "general medical issue." He won't see a full workload in his first game back but Ivory is still the favorite for goal-line carries. That makes him a touchdown-or-bust RB3. Obviously Ivory's return will put a major dent in T.J. Yeldon's fantasy value.

Redskins declared WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') inactive for Week 3 against the Giants.

Rashad Ross was originally listed as inactive, but he will be up instead of Doctson. NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reports Doctson's Achilles' did not feel good in warmups after being limited all week in practice. It does not sound like he suffered a setback, but his practice participation should be closely monitored this week.

Matt Asiata has been announced as the Vikings' Week 3 starter at running back.

We still think Jerick McKinnon will lead Minnesota's backfield in touches, but it's indicative of the faith the Vikings have in short-yardage plodder Asiata. He'll get the goal-line carries. McKinnon is a borderline RB2, Asiata a low-upside RB3.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Thomas Rawls (shin) and C.J. Prosise (hand) will be inactive Week 3 against the 49ers.

Rawls is not surprising, but Prosise did practice in full all week. Prosise is still wearing a cast on his injured hand, however, so he likely would not have helped out much on offense either way. With both backs down, Christine Michael is set up for a monster workload. He is a must-play in all formats.

Browns CB Joe Haden (groin) is inactive for Week 3.

Haden made the trip to Miami, but was always on the doubtful side after going down in Friday's practice. It's an upgrade to a Dolphins pass game that's already in a plus spot. Tramon Williams will start opposite Jamar Taylor in base sets, and should follow Jarvis Landry in the slot. The rest of Cleveland's inactives are QB Josh McCown, WR Corey Coleman, S Ibraheim Campbell, C Cameron Erving, OL Shon Coleman, and DL Carl Nassib.

Tyler Kroft is starting ahead of C.J. Uzomah in Week 3 against the Broncos.

Neither is a strong TE1 streamer, but it's a noteworthy development for fantasy owners truly desperate at tight end. Kroft out-snapped Uzomah narrowly last week, and he should do so to a greater extent against Denver.

Vikings RCB Xavier Rhodes (knee) is active for Week 3 vs. the Panthers.

Rhodes isn't listed as a starter, so he'll be eased in as he makes his 2016 debut. Even a limited Rhodes is a big boost for the Vikings' already cooking defense. He should be close to full-go for Week 4.
Sep 25 - 11:37 AM

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) is active for Week 3 vs. the Panthers.

Diggs was just getting a maintenance day on Friday. The new focal point of the Vikings' offense, Diggs is leading the league in receiving through two weeks, and a high-end WR2 against the Panthers' work-in-progress secondary.
Sep 25 - 11:35 AM

Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell is inactive for Week 3 vs. the Panthers.

Treadwell played only two snaps in Week 2, so it's not a huge surprise. It's still puzzling, as the Vikings need their first-rounder to get going as they transition to being more of a pass-heavy offense. Also inactive for the Vikings are RB Ronnie Hillman, LB Kentrell Brothers, C Nick Easton, DT Sharrif Floyd and TE MyCole Pruitt.
Sep 25 - 11:35 AM

Packers declared OLB Clay Matthews, CB Sam Shields, S Morgan Burnett, DE Datone Jones, NT Letroy Guion, QB Joe Callahan, and OT Kyle Murphy inactive for Week 3 against the Lions.

The Packers will be without four starters and an important rotational pass rusher on defense against the Lions. With Detroit also missing DE Ziggy Ansah and WLB DeAndre Levy, this game has shootout potential.
