Free agent DE/OLB Lamarr Houston worked out for the Saints on Tuesday.

Houston was released with an injury settlement by the Bears earlier this month. He was limited to two games last season, but Houston is just a year removed from an eight-sack campaign in 2015. He would be a solid addition for a Saints defense which needs all the help it can get.

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.

Kenny Golladay caught 1-of-3 targets for eight yards in the Lions' Week 2 win over the Giants.

Don't sour on Golladay after this one. He still played more snaps than T.J. Jones as the No. 3 receiver, but the Lions only threw the ball 21 times total and four times after halftime. They held a comfy lead much of the night. Matthew Stafford did look Golladay's way a couple times on jump balls. He'll be on the WR3/4 map next week in a potential shootout with the Falcons.
Sep 19 - 12:03 AM

Sterling Shepard caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

He added seven rushing yards on two attempts. Shepard was targeted in the end zone on one play, but the ball was way too high despite Shepard's incredible leap to try and nab it. With Odell Beckham slowly getting back to full health, Shepard's role figures to trend downward in this broken offense.
Sep 19 - 12:00 AM

Golden Tate caught all four of his targets for 25 yards in the Lions' Week 2 win over the Giants.

The Lions only had to throw the ball 21 times total and four times after halftime. There just wasn't enough volume to go around, as Eric Ebron led the team with a 5-42-1 line. Tate will be a strong WR2 next week against the Falcons.
Sep 18 - 11:59 PM

Evan Engram caught 4-of-7 targets for 49 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

Engram was wide-open on his 18-yard touchdown where the Lions thought he was blocking and let him slip behind the coverage into the end zone. Engram has now seen a total of 12 targets through two games, which is decent volume for the rookie. It will likely go down a bit once Odell Beckham gets to 100 percent, but Engram at least looks usable in tight end-premium leagues.
Sep 18 - 11:56 PM

Marvin Jones caught 1-of-5 targets for 27 yards and one touchdown in the Lions' Week 2 win over the Giants.

Jones hasn't seen many targets or produced many yards through two games, but he's scored a touchdown in both. Jones' score on Monday night was a perfectly-thrown back-shoulder fade where Jones beat sophomore CB Eli Apple. Jones is a low-floor fantasy option if he isn't catching touchdowns. Consider him more of a WR4 next week at home against the Falcons.
Sep 18 - 11:54 PM

Paul Perkins rushed seven times for 10 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

He caught both of his targets for 12 yards. Both Perkins and Shane Vereen got nine touches in the loss, with Vereen out-producing Perkins 55-22 in total yards. Perkins is a below-average back running behind one of the league's worst offensive lines. He's not usable as an RB3/FLEX until further notice.
Sep 18 - 11:51 PM

Shane Vereen rushed six times for 28 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

He added three catches for 27 yards on three targets. Both Vereen and "lead back" Paul Perkins received nine touches, with Vereen out-gaining Perkins 55-22. Neither back is all that enticing in fantasy leagues, but Vereen at least catches passes and should probably be owned in deeper PPR leagues.
Sep 18 - 11:49 PM

Theo Riddick rushed nine times for 20 yards and caught all three of his targets for 17 yards in the Lions' Week 2 win over the Giants.

Riddick didn't get much going. He got all of the clock-killing carries late in the fourth quarter after Ameer Abdullah appeared to tweak his ankle following a 34-yard run earlier on the drive. Riddick should be able to rack up more than a handful of grabs in a shootout against the Falcons in Week 3.
Sep 18 - 11:47 PM

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.
Sep 18 - 11:43 PM

Eric Ebron caught all five of his targets for 42 yards and one touchdown in the Lions' Week 2 win over the Giants.

Ebron did all of his damage in the first half, as the Lions squatted on the ball in the second half and attempted just four passes after the break. Ebron was running free all night against the Giants' linebackers and safeties, leaving UDFA MLB Calvin Munson and FS Darian Thompson in the dust on a pair of grabs, scoring a short red-zone touchdown against Thompson. Ebron was locked down by Arizona last week, but we saw a glimpse of a possible breakout Monday night. Fire Ebron up as a back-end TE1 streamer at home against Atlanta in Week 3.
Sep 18 - 11:40 PM

Eli Manning completed 22-of-32 passes for 239 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

The Giants were terrible on offense much of the night, with Manning getting sacked five times and missing a couple throws. He simply doesn't get much time to throw behind this dreadful offensive line, and his receivers hurt him with a couple drops. Manning still looks close to donezo at 36 years old. The Giants have so many flaws on offense, leaving Manning as a low-end QB2 for the foreseeable future. Manning is likely to get pummeled Week 3 at the Eagles.
Sep 18 - 11:37 PM

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.
Sep 18 - 11:33 PM

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.
