Sammy Watkins (foot) is not practicing on Friday.

Watkins is almost sure to miss his second-straight game after his surgically-repaired foot was stepped on in a walkthrough practice last week. Robert Woods and Charles Clay will again be the Bills' top two targets, while LeSean McCoy should be a lock for a 20-touch floor as the focal point.

Bills GM Doug Whaley said he'd like to see Tyrod Taylor develop into more of a pocket passer.

"[It's] just gonna be a gradual process," Whaley said, "because of his background of being, 'If it's not there, let's go and take off.' That's no fault of his own, but that's something that he's gonna continue to develop and get better. The onus is on him, and I think he loves the challenge. He's a competitor, and I think he's going to continue each week to get better and better." Taylor has failed to top 119 yards passing in 2-of-3 starts this season and now gets a date with coach Bill Belichick. Taylor won't be a recommended start outside of two-quarterback leagues.

Donte Moncrief (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 4 against the Jaguars.

There was never any doubt. Moncrief is expected to miss about another month with a broken shoulder blade. Phillip Dorsett will continue to fill in as the No. 2, with Jack Doyle getting more snaps in "12" personnel.
Sep 30 - 10:32 AM

Julius Thomas (elbow) will be a game-time decision for Week 4 against the Colts.

Thomas practices with his elbow in a brace on Friday. He's officially questionable for the London affair. With the Colts and Jaguars kicking off at 9:30 AM ET, owners can wait for inactives before making backup plans for Thomas.
Sep 30 - 10:24 AM

Colts CB Darius Butler (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 4 against the Jaguars.

The good news for the Colts is they'r getting much healthier on the back end. Vontae Davis made his season debut last week and Patrick Robinson is back from a concussion. Butler is the Colts' top slot corner.

Coach Bill O'Brien will take over offensive play-calling duties Week 4 against the Titans.

O'Brien called the plays in his first season (2014) as head coach, but turned those duties over to OC George Godsey last year. After three weeks this season, the Texans are dead-last in red-zone success and field Football Outsiders' 32nd-ranked offense in DVOA. They have just three touchdowns in three games. Against Tennessee, this presents a get-right spot.
Sep 30 - 9:55 AM

Kelvin Benjamin said he's "pumped up" for Week 4 against the Falcons after not catching a pass in the Week 3 loss to the Vikings.

Benjamin expects to do battle most of the day with Falcons LCB Desmond Trufant. In two previous matchups with Trufant, Benjamin got the best of him in one with a 9-109-1 line before Trufant won Round 2, holding Benjamin to 1-9-0 in a 31-point Panthers win where they ran the ball all day. The Panthers have been talking all week how Benjamin is going to be heavily involved. Even in a tough matchup, he needs to be locked into lineups as a WR1/2 that's going to be fed.

CSN New England's Mike Giardi reports Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) is "making good strides" and the "arrow is pointing in the right direction" for him to start Week 4 against Buffalo.

It sounds like he's on the right track to play Sunday against the Bills. Garoppolo's return would be a big boost to Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman in the passing game, though LeGarrette Blount would still be the focal point on offense.

Jacksonville QB Blake Bortles threw for 548 yards and four touchdowns in two 2015 meetings with Indianapolis.

Bortles has six interceptions through three weeks but will look to replicate his past success against the Indianapolis defense. The Colts are coughing up 304.3 passing yards per game, so a repeat performance could be in the cards when the AFC South rivals meet in London. While the Colts D/ST will struggle against the pass in this matchup, Bortles will provide plenty of playmaking opportunities for the Indianapolis defense, making this group a mid-level fantasy option for owners in a pinch.
Sep 30 - 2:39 AM

Tyler Boyd caught 1-of-3 targets for 10 yards in Cincinnati's Week 4 win over the Dolphins.

The second-rounder has 12 catches for 130 yards through four games, putting him on pace for 48/520. That could slacken with Tyler Eifert expected to return for Week 5. Boyd has a weak PPR case.
Sep 30 - 12:01 AM

C.J. Uzomah caught 4-of-5 targets for 45 yards in the Bengals' Week 4 win over the Dolphins.

The catches were a season high. Uzomah has cleared 30 yards in 3-of-4 games, but his moment in the sun is coming to an end with Tyler Eifert expected back for Week 5. There's no real reason to own Uzomah in any format.
Sep 30 - 12:00 AM

Brandon LaFell caught 4-of-6 targets for 44 yards in the Bengals' Week 4 win over the Dolphins.

The Bengals' nominal No. 2 receiver, LaFell is on pace for 52 catches through four games. With Tyler Eifert nearing a return, LaFell's already sunken floor is going to get jacked even lower.
Sep 29 - 11:58 PM

Dion Sims caught 1-of-2 targets for nine yards in Miami's Week 4 loss to the Bengals.

Sims got the start with Jordan Cameron (concussion) sidelined, but was a complete non-factor. Sims will remain well off the fantasy radar if Cameron isn't ready for Week 5.
Sep 29 - 11:57 PM

Kenyan Drake rushed twice for 15 yards in the Dolphins' Week 4 loss to the Bengals.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Damien Williams got the start, Jay Ajayi got the work and Drake got nothing. He almost made a catastrophic special teams blunder in the first half, nearly bringing the ball beyond the goal line before retreating for a touchback. Drake has zero trust from the coaching staff, and didn't do anything to earn any more this evening. He'll remain invisible for fantasy purposes going forward.
Sep 29 - 11:54 PM

Jay Ajayi rushed six times for 33 yards in the Dolphins' Week 4 loss to the Bengals, adding two catches for 13 additional yards.

Ajayi and Kenyan Drake were "benched" for Damien Williams, but Ajayi ended up easily leading the backfield in touches. He was arguably the Dolphins' most effective player this evening, reeling off three 11-yard gains. Ajayi should have gotten the ball more, and likely will against the Titans in Week 5 as the Dolphins desperately try to get something going on the ground. Ajayi will still barely be on the RB3 radar for that one.
