The NFL says the Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy cases are under review.

Sep 16 - 8:56 AM

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution believes Roddy White (hamstring) and Julio Jones (ankle) will be ready for Thursday's game against the Bucs.

Beat writer D. Orlando Ledbetter was merely responding to a question on Twitter, not reporting. We should get more from the team following Tuesday's practice. Owners that want to protect themselves can add No. 3 wideout Harry Douglas.

Coach Andy Reid confirmed that the game plan won't change much if Knile Davis starts in place of Jamaal Charles (ankle) against the Dolphins Sunday.

Charles has missed all or most of the three games across the last two seasons. In those games, Davis is averaging 22.3 carries, 5.0 catches, 97.0 total yards and has scored six touchdowns. Reid and the Chiefs have every reason to be confident in the second-year back as someone they can build offense through. The RB-dependent scheme Reid has installed would stay intact, leaving Davis as a RB1 candidate.

Chiefs RB/WR De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring) could return for Week 3.

Thomas, the Chiefs' fourth-round rookie, has missed the first two weeks. Although he's listed as a running back, the 176-pounder is really a package player that won't pick up much slack if Jamaal Charles (ankle) sits.

Davante Adams out-snapped Jarrett Boykin 37-25 in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Boykin started as the No. 3 receiver, but got a quick hook after failing to come up with a tough pass in the red zone. Adams came on and immediately impressed, finishing with a 5-50-0 line on seven targets. If the second-round rookie hasn't forced an all-out rotation here, he's certainly breathing down the veteran's neck. Adams is worth an add in deeper formats just in case he steals the third wideout job full-time.

Hakeem Nicks caught one pass for minus-four yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

He was targeted three times on the night. Nicks' best opportunity came on an end-zone look, but it was a bit overthrown in good coverage. He's seen eight targets through two games with the Colts, and is no more than a WR4/5.
Sep 16 - 12:47 AM

Dwayne Allen didn't catch a pass in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

Allen saw just one target on the night, but he blocked his butt off in the run game. He lost out to third-string TE Jack Doyle on a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter. OC Pep Hamilton and the coaches simply don't realize Allen's skill level as an all-around tight end. He'll get the Jaguars in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 12:43 AM

Brent Celek dropped his lone target in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts.

It would have gone for an easy one-yard touchdown, but the ball clanked right off Celek's fingers. He's only in the lineup thanks to his willingness to block.
Sep 16 - 12:40 AM

Donte Moncrief caught his lone target for 16 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

It was Moncrief's first NFL catch. He's the clear No. 4 receiver in Indy, but won't play a large role unless OC Pep Hamilton reluctantly opens up the offense or gets fired.
Sep 16 - 12:39 AM

Jordan Matthews caught 1-of-4 targets for 17 yards in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts.

Matthews played in three-wide sets out of the slot, as expected. On his lone catch, Matthews caught an earful from coach Chip Kelly for not getting out of bounds. As the fifth or sixth option in the passing game, Matthews isn't start-able in fantasy. He won't have value unless there are injuries in Philadelphia.
Sep 16 - 12:37 AM

Coby Fleener caught just one pass for 13 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

Fleener saw just the one target a week after dropping a pass and botching a red-zone target. He's not worth owning in any fantasy leagues.
Sep 16 - 12:34 AM

Riley Cooper caught one pass for eight yards in the Eagles' Monday night, Week 2 win over the Colts.

Cooper was targeted just three times on the night; he dropped one deep ball in the end zone and later drew a pass interference call against Vontae Davis in the end zone to set up LeSean McCoy's one-yard score. Cooper saw some good looks, but didn't do anything with them. He's a touchdown-dependent WR4.
Sep 16 - 12:32 AM

T.Y. Hilton caught six passes for 65 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

Hilton saw a team-high ten targets. He dropped the first pass of the game, and was targeted on Andrew Luck's late-fourth quarter interception. Hilton was mugged on the play by Eagles slot CB Brandon Boykin and was dragged to the turf. Hilton has seen a healthy 21 targets through two games, but has yet to break a big play. He has another favorable matchup in Week 3 at the Jaguars.
Sep 16 - 12:29 AM

Jeremy Maclin caught four passes for 45 yards and one touchdown in Monday night's Week 2 win over the Colts.

Maclin was targeted a game-high 11 times one week after seeing ten targets. He's clearly drawing the eye of Nick Foles, but Foles is missing his No. 1 receiver too often. Foles missed Maclin for a wide-open touchdown in Week 1, and also overshot him on Monday night in the end zone. If Foles can find his 2013 form, Maclin will flirt with high-end WR2 production as this target rate. He has another favorable matchup at home against Redskins in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 12:27 AM

Reggie Wayne caught three passes for 28 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

Wayne was targeted seven times on the night, but couldn't shake free for any big gains. Andrew Luck also couldn't complete any passes downfield with OC Pep Hamilton dialing up run play after run play mixed in with short throwing plays. Wayne should rebound next week against Jacksonville. He's a WR3/4.
